    Longhi's was formerly a very good restaurant. But since Mr. Longhi passed away, the restaurant has gone downhill big time. I will not go back. The food was poor, the service was poor, and the server brought a red wine that was two years different from the wine list. Come on, man.

    We ate at Longhi's our last night in Maui and were underwhelmed. The crab cakes lacked flavour and were swimming in sauce; the steak was Ok but the fish of the day done in a beurre blanc was below average. I didn't even finish it. The location is nice but we were seated near the open kitchen which lead to a lot of cooking smells (with an undertone of burn't) and heat. I am sorry I can't recommend this restaurant.

    We visit Maui yearly. Waited to long for water and drink order.That done, we sat and listened to a loud mouthed trio at the bar. We ordered salads, one Longhi, one Longhi Longhi. The "L" was as described. My "LL " except for crisp lettuce was devoid of described ingredients. Once our entrees were served and we were able to sneak knives and forks from an adjoioning table, we began to chow down. Our entrees were passable but dull. Shrimp/scallop marinara needed more of something to pick up the bland taste.The shrimp/scallop combo was just okay. There are many fine dining establishments on Maui and certainly much better options in Lahaina.

    We had dinner here on our last night on the island of Maui for our honeymoon. It was a bittersweet night and Longhi's delivered in every aspect. Pricy, but you get what you pay for. Only thing I didn't like was there seemed to be lots of butter on everything, but I am particularly sensitive to lots of butter. The artichoke was just plain FUN to eat!

    The Food was good but too many misses by staff to call it a good experience. I made the reservation for my wife's Birthday dinner three weeks in advance and confirmed that that day and they still completely forgot the celebration. The hostess was going to seat us under a different name after ensuring she knew our name, the table was much later than our reservation time, the first two wine bottle choices were not available the noise from the group of 20 we were seated next to did not make for a romantic birthday dinner. The only bright spot of the evening was our server who was very attentive.

    While the view of the lovely Pacific Ocean is undeniable, and the service is top-notch, the food was ridiculously bad. It was by far the worst, yet the most expensive meal we had during our week there on the island. My husband and I chose to share a caprese salad--the tomatoes were bland and the herbed olive oil unremarkable. For dinner, I had the Longi shrimp and pasta that has been on the menu forever--instead of crostini with it, I chose angel-hair pasta at the suggestion of our server. The shrimp was overcooked and chewy, the pasta clumpy and stuck together. The pasta special that my husband ordered contained shrimp and scallops with a red sauce over spaghetti. Just like mine, the shrimp was overcooked, the pasta gummy.

    The food is always excellent here, so we come every year when we're on Maui. However, with the open doors/windows, the traffic noise was quite annoying. And because there was no wind and the daytime temp had been around 90, it was very hot in the restaurant. (This, of course, is not their fault but it detracted from the dining experience.) But we would still recommend it for their food.

    Thought the food was decent - we both had a chicken dish. We really didn't like the place itself - tables and chairs seemed very old / had a run down feel. Nice spot to watch sunset but I think your better off spending a bit more money and dining at the Lahaina Grill where I thought the food is worth every penny!

It would have been perfect if we met the owner, Peter Longhi, as initially requested.

    Longhi's is a MUST try if visiting Hawaii. My husband and I tried the restuarant one morning after reading it's fantastic reviews in Zagat's. THe breakfast choices were plentiful and the food exceeded our expectations. So much so that we went back each morning of our trip to feast on the delicious homemade cinnomon rolls, pastries, muffins, macadamian pancakes and fresh fruit. The wait staff was VERY friendly and helpful. They convinced us to go back for dinner one night. We really enjoyed our dinner sharing a Longhi salad, chicken parmasean and mussels with linguini. The food was spectactular just like our breaksfasts at Longhi's. We now call Longhi's our favorite restaurant on Maui...for breakfast and dinner!

    It was our first time dining here. We had a table upstairs with a beautiful view of the water. Unfortunately, they booked a 'rehearsal dinner' party next to us and several other tables. They were loud and obnoxious. The manager did, after I asked, offer us a couple of glasses of wine. However, they should never have seated any of us next to this group when there were tables on the lower level. Also, when I cut into my VERY expensive salmon dish, it was not cooked on the inside!

    Longhi's has a long tradition in Maui and we have been going since the days when you would order your dinner out of the owners cookbook! The food is fresh, inventive, delicious and always to be counted on. The location of the restaurant is PERFECT for watching the sunset (go about 30 minutes before). The wine list has international surprises. And the service is amazing (we have been lucky enough to have Jenna many years in a row and she LOVES her job which translates into great service, fabulous recommendations and a lovely accent to a wonderful meal).

    Great service and view at this restaurant, a lovely place to watch the sunset. The menu reflects the era in which the restaurant was founded, with lots of cream sauces served over the seafood or meat. Nice wines on the menu, but would not recommend to people who expect trendy or modern food choices.

    All the staff we encountered were wonderful and compensated for the unpleasant experience from the previous night at another restaurant. From the moment we were seated we were attended to expertly. Our waiter, Gennarino, was so personable, we felt like family. He had many helpful suggestions to guide our ordering. The complimentary pizza bread was fantastic. So fresh and flavorful! Salads were fresh and crisp. The Eggplant Parmesan was wonderful though the portion was huge! My husband had a pasta dish with wonderful sauce and very fresh pasta. All in all a keeper.

    After years of listening to my parents rave about this place (and having the cookbook), I finally got to enjoy Longhi's for myself and it was probably my favorite restaurant we went to on Maui. Everything from start to finish was absolutely superb. We were seated at a table near the window and had a beautiful view of the ocean. Artichokes were to die for, as was the sashimi tuna bruschetta and the kula greens salad. As for entrees, I don't think you could go wrong, but we all loved the ahi tuna, prawns amaretto, opakapaka with grapes and the veal saltimbocca. We also devoured a macadamia nut pie to wrap it up. Longhi's is a can't miss!
