    I love the setup of this place... Very romantic. The server was okay, but not great. The food I ordered was overly salted and way too small a portion for the price compared to other restaurants we went to in the area. I just didn't get w feeling of wanting to come back...

    Have only been here for breakfast, but do so each time in Maui. Great lobster Benedict and frittatas. Watch out for mimosas..they do not use much orang juice :-). Great pressed coffee from Maui and wonderful homemade cinnamon roll. Couple next to us had been there 4 days in a row for breakfast! Location on Front street gives wonderful ocean view as you dine.

    All the requirements for a happy celebration were met: Sunset view, excellent Lobster Longhi shared by everyone at our table, perfectly paired with a Pinot Noir from the wine list, delicious macadamia nut dessert and coffee. 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!

    View of the ocean (from second floor dining room) was top-notch. Food was very mediocre (Frutti di Mare appetizer was the worst, fish special was unnecessarily drowned in butter). Service was haphazard (waiter seemed overworked, I never received a drink that I ordered). Would not recommend.

    Our family of four had great service & dinner off their pasta menu. The "on the house" appetizer of focaccia bread was a nice treat. On line reservations through Open Table worked nicely for us. The mixed reviews for Longhi's service almost dissuaded us from booking here, glad we went anyway.

    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.

    Yes, you can have great food at a reasonable price with scenic view. Since the restaurant is facing Front St., cars and buses make some noise. However you can still enjoy wonderful view from the table you sit. I prefer visiting this restaurant at evening since sunset view is better.

    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!

    We had not been to Longhis for quite a few years and decided to try it for dinner one night. Had a great table with a few of the sunset and our server (Cayenne) was great. The light jazz was also good. Salads were very good and fresh. My wife and I had the Clam Linguinis which were ok but not great (too much lemon). Macadamian nut pie was good but not great. This place strikes me as a location that may have some really great dishes, you just have to be lucky enough to pick the right ones.

    This is a Maui tradition. The food is consistently good and is served with a great view(Lahaina). While Longhi's is good, the competition is good or better such as Sansei and Cafe Olei in Kihei, Tommy Bahama in Wailea. There are a number of good restaurants in Lahaina and Kaanapali.

    An extensive menu with a knowledgable staff. They were willing to personalize selections to your preference, both in the way they are coked and the sauces. Great view from the second floor. We dined late in the evening so much of the crowd had cleared out. But if you go earlier the tables are fairly close together so it can get noisy.

    We have been coming to Maui for years now and have eaten at Longhi's many times over the years. The restaurant in Wailea is much nicer and has a nice ambience. The original location in Lahaina is old an tired. In my opinion, the whole place needs to be remodeled. For dinner, they close down the downstairs for some reason and sit costumers upstairs in a large room that is a combination banquet hall, dance floor, bar and storage area. There is no atmosphere. This combined with the poor service, average food and noise from Front Street, really does not create a memorable experience.

    We visited this restaurant twice during our stay once for lunch and once for dinner. At lunch we had a pizza and salad and that just hit the spot. Service was good and server friendly, ambiance was good and the noise level was fine. At dinner we had the crab cakes and a pasta dish both were good without being spectacular. Server was attentive and this time we were seated upstairs where we had a nice view of the ocean. All in all a good restaurant that we are likely to visit again when next in Lahaina. Worth a look.

    Beautiful view from top of restaurant over looking the ocean. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We did get the impression that the portions were not that big, they are BIG. I had the lobster cannelloni- yummy! They bring you a plate of bread which is more like a pizza, save room for your meal. They have valet parking since there is no place close to park on the street. Great evening.

    We've been to Lahaina approx. 50 times over the last 30 years, and surprisingly, never been to Longhi's. I am so glad we finally did! Dined upstairs (opens at 6 upstairs, much earlier downstairs), loved the view of Front Street and the Pacific Ocean (whales jumping in the water!), the bartender (congrats on losing so much weight!), our server who made us feel as if we were his most important table, and the FOOD. Oh my goodness, the Opakapaka was the best I have ever had....anywhere on the island. Longhi's has kept dinner prices a few dollars less per entree (nice relief!) than some other restaurants who are charging upwards of $50 per entree....ala carte. Loved our dinner, the staff, the view. We'll return. Much aloha.

    We were very pleased to enjoy another wonderful sunset dinner at Longhis this week. We've been visiting Maui for over 30 years and during our first 15 years or so, Longhis was a favorite dining spot. Then it seems the quality if the food declined and we stopped adding Longhis to our dining list. We decided to dine again last September to give an old favorite another try. The dinner was better than we anticipated. So, on this visit, we went to Longhis again and we were not disappointed. We will be back and glad that Longhis has risen once again to the top of the dining list.

    Overall, this is my first choice/recommendation for dining in Maui/Lahaina. Merriman's and Plantation were possibly more spectacular, but really expensive, and I was particularly irked at the outrageous wine markups at Plantation. The open air second floor deck at Longhi just reeks of New Orleans, and while dining outdoors or near to it, is commonplace on the islands, nothing quite matches this one. The fish was great, the wine was at California prices, and the overall experience just great.

    My family and I have eaten at the Longhi's in Wailea and thought the location in Lahaina would be similar. I am not even sure these restaurants are related after the meal we had while vacationing. While we knew that we were not eating at Mama's Fish House (which is the best restaurant on Maui), we expected a decent meal out in Lahaina, especially considering the location and price (moderately high). We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated even though we had reservations at 7:00 and the restaurant was operating at 20% capacity (should have known better at that point). The waiter (Steve with the handle-bar mustache) was excellent and should be working at a better restaurant in the area. If your expectations are low, this is the spot for you.
