Diner Reviews
  • "Our salads, sushi, sashimi and desserts were all excellent, and the setting looking out over Hanalei Bay is absolutely gorgeous. (We have learned not to order entrees when we go out to dinner, as the amounts are always too much.) The cocktails were good but perhaps a bit uninspired in comparison with the Kauai Grill (also in the St. Regis)."

  • "Sunsets are spectacular! Wait staff is very willing to accommodate (with patience) your special needs; their food selection and most importantly, taste, was highly suitable."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Spectacular view, beautiful restaurant, impeccable service, and FABULOUS food. Near impossible to top this restaurant! A great selection of sushi rolls in addition to their full menu. Sushi rolls are generous, consider sharing. If you can plan around sunset, you will be treated to a spectacular Hawai'ian sunset."

  • "I can honestly say this has to be one of the most incredible dining experiences I have ever had! From the appetizers to the dessert, I could find nothing less than extraordinary!"

  • "We ate here for our 40th Anniversary. We had asked ( several times) to be seated with a view of the water. What we got was a partial look at water but mainly the roof of one of their guest buildings. This even though there were other tables. The service was sooty as we sat a very long time before anyone came over and even then it was long waits between water, drink order and waitress. When the food did arrive it was mediocre at best. The seafood lagsana lacked seafood and the Ahi bland. Not god for a special occasion dinner costing almost $200."

  • "Being at the St. Regis, you expect five star and you get it all the way. Overlooking Hanalei bay, try to reserve a time so you can take in the breathtaking Hawaiian sunset. Service is impeccable, and the food no ka oi (the best in Hawaiian). This is definitely on the top five list of Kaua'i restaurants."

  • "We surprised our kids with a Kauai beach wedding at the St. Regis and because we wanted to be outside, we selected the Makana Terrace for our small dinner party. It was a perfect setting and the food was really wonderful. I had the Blue Cheese NY Strip and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had - flavorful and cooked just right. The lobster whipped potatoes were equally delicious. Others had the lamb chops and Mahi-Mahi and they enjoyed those as well. We returned the next morning for breakfast and were again pleased -- the signature Aloha Mary with tiny sea asparagus garnish is terrific! While service was a bit slow at both seatings, it's really hard to complain about that since everything else was so lovely."

  • "We go there for the beautiful view! It's the best view on the whole island! The food is secondary, expensive, and just good, not "very good" nor "excellent". The service is very good there."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "If you are on Kauai you must go here! Perhaps the most beautiful view from a terrace restaurant on earth. The terrace looks out on the west view toward Hanalei Bay and the mountains. Stunning does not do it justice. Add to that the service and wonderful sophisticated food and you have an amazing piece of paradise. We liked it better than Kauai Grill and the view and setting transformed and lifted our entire party. A double rainbow appeared right on cue to complete the magic. Great setting for a family gathering for our mother's 75th birthday celebration...."

  • "WE enjoyed the food and the waiter was very good and friendly and accommodated us since we were running out of time with our kid at the baby sitting at Regis."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Food was great, lots of selection in the buffet and it never ran out. However, service was so-so for a top tier restaurant. It was our honeymoon and I specifically requested a table along the railings when making my reservation few days in advance, but there was no regard of my request at all and we ended up not getting the seating that we asked for. I understand that the seating was request only and not guaranteed, but if the table that we requested was not available I expected them to at least let us know instead of pretending like we didn't make the request. For a $60/person brunch I expected a much better service from them. "

  • "The food was amazing and the view incredible but I have it a lower review because if you are paying a five star price they should have enough staff to take care of you during your meal. All the staff were running around and the restaurant wasn't close to being full. View is glorious and food amazing."

  • "I've dined at the Makana Terrace for Dinner, Mid-Week Breakfast Brunch & Mothers Day Brunch. The food is consistently good and fresh but nothing extra special. Portions are small as to be expected. The pricing is way too high for what they offer. For example: the Weekend Brunch did not have a Waffle Bar or Caviar Bar. There were no bagels for the lox. The View is however, amazing and special and that is really what is being paid for. The service is good but not exceptional. It should be exceptional. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This is the best Mother's Day Brunch I have ever been to. The freshness and variety of sushi available was exceptional. The roasted leg of lamb was superb. There is something for everyone! The variety was endless, from Mac & cheese to Beef Wellington to seafood to decadent desserts. $$$$ but worth it!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Amazing view with great food choices. The sushi was very fresh and replenished often. The fresh seafood- shrimp and crab legs were delicious as well. The dessert selection was very good and had items made with local favorites like taro. Would definitely highly recommend the Sunday brunch."

  • "The combination of a spectacular view of Hanalei Bay and great food can't be beat. We were there with a large party and everyone totally enjoyed it. Whether it was sushi or filet mignon the food was excellent. The service was also great with just the right amount of attention. You must go there if you are in Princeville.i"

  • "Most breathtaking view of Hanalei Bay! Food was superb. Sushi choices and steak were prepared perfectly. Excellent wine. Personable servers and staff. Just lovely."

  • "We had dinner here our last night at the St. Regis. To start, we ordered crispy chicken rolls, pan seared scallops, and steamed manila clams. There were 4 chicken rolls, which were generously stuffed, but the taste was just ok. Nothing special about the scallops either, but my husband did enjoy the clams. For my entrée, I had the blue cheese NY strip, which was too cheesy and had to be removed. Unfortunately, the carmelized exotic mushrooms I ordered with my steak were tasteless. Rather than order an entrée, my husband ordered various sushi rolls, which he liked. For dessert, we shared the peanut butter bar which was absolutely amazing--light and not overly sweet. Lastly, I have to mention our server, Kevin, who was friendly and efficient!"

  • "From delicious food to a glorious sunset our experience was the best! Attentive service, unbelievably beautiful surroundings, and a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere made our visit one we'll remember with joy."

  • "If you are on Kauai anywhere Princeville this is an excellent place for any occasion. Food was excellent, as was the service. Views are amazing!! We chose to sit outside eben though it was windy and a little chilly. The servers and management even provided blankets to some guests to help them keep warm! Thanks to Makana Terrace for helping us celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary!"

  • "My husband and I visited here during our honeymoon. We were seated promptly at a table overlooking the mountains and ocean at sunset. We were also given champagne, which was a nice touch. The food though... not impressed. Sushi was yummy, but our main dishes were not well prepared. I got the filet and lobster tail dinner, and ordered my steak medium, but it arrived well done. Of course when I sent it back, my husband was already done eating his food by the time my new steak arrived. All I got was a brief apology from the waitress and a statement that the chef rarely makes mistakes... so that put a damper on things. My lobster was also tough and chewy, and served sliced out of the shell, which does not read "fine dining" to me."

  • "We wouldn't miss coming to this spot every time we're in Kauai. Brunch is over the top; sunset cocktails on the terrace is like no other place in the world!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Very nice, if expensive. Great if you're staying at St. Regis and don't want to negotiate the winding road to Hanalei. Good sushi. Can't beat the view!"

  • "We very much enjoyed sitting outside for dinner at Makana Terrace. We ate sushi and grilled asparagus and it was very nice. Be forwarned however, it's VERY expensive."

  • "Dining at Makana Terrace was our most memorable meal on Kauai. The view was the best, the waitress allowed us to split a salad and meal, and the food was the freshest and tastiest of our trip."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Wow, where to start? This place exceeded expectations. We knew the view was just about as good as you will ever find anywhere. I mean ANYWHERE. What surprised us was the food and service ... most places with this kind of view live on that and coast on the rest. Not here. Our food was the best we had on the entire trip - from salad and appetizer to entrees. excellently prepared and flavors carefully melded into something special. Were surprised with a special dessert for our anniversary. Waiter was always magically there when needed and otherwise utterly invisible. Perfect. Was this meal a fluke? Can't wait to go back to find out ..."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Other than the view, nothing special about this play. EXTREMELY overpriced for the quality and inventiveness of the food and very average level of service. There are much better dining experiences to be had on Kauai."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "The food was good but for the price they charge, it should have been excellent. Same for the service. I am a foodie at heart, and I was hoping for Makana Terrace to be better than experienced. The Sunset sushi platter, which cost $30, was disappointing; not only were the portions small but the quality was lackluster. However, the other starter dishes such as the Ahi & Hamachi Poke and the Coconut Chili Curry Marinated Kauai Prawns were very well executed.I also had the steamed Opakapaka - good but not earth shattering. Service was fair but not excellent, especially for St. Regis - however, the sommelier was knowledgeable, which I really appreciate."

  • "Beautiful setting, but the food was disappointing, especially for St. Regis prices!"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Sadly, the service was slow and the portions were ridiculously small. You are not paying for great food or great service, but the view is incredible!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Lovely setting and ambiance. Food was quite good. Service from our waitress initially was attentive but faltered badly when more diners arrived. We had to ask employees who were not part of the direct wait staff for service of the type that is the waitress's responsibility, as she was greatly distracted servicing other tables, particularly a table of seven men. Perhaps the restaurant is at fault for expecting her to cover too many diners. Not sure. For the disgruntled diner, however, it makes no difference."
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "The view at the Makana restaurant in the St. Regis hotel is one of the best on the island. It is the perfect spot to relax and have Sunday brunch. There is a huge selection of foods to choose from at the brunch buffet, everything from seafood, including sashimi and shrimp cocktail to fruits, salads of all kinds, regular breakfast entrees and lunch/dinner entrees to a variety of sweets. Everything was very fresh and tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxed meal overlooking beautiful Hanalei Bay. Its pricey but the view is worth splurging once in a while."

  • "Food was fabulous! Presentation was jaw dropping. Lots of fresh chilled shrimp, crab legs, and sushi and from the best view on the island overlooking Hanalei bay."
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "Food was so over priced for what you get. We got the chili prawn appetizer to start which consisted of 4 small shrimp, no chili flavor and polenta was mediocre at best and it was $22! Our entrees were just okay. My husband got the lamb shank which was a decent portion but tasted like pot roast. I got the Opakapaka which was recommended by our server and it was under seasoned and very forgettable. All in all we were so disappointed with the food. For the price we thought it should have blew our minds. Big fail. I did get a free dessert because it was my birthday and that was the best thing we had."
    Dined on 11/4/2013
  • "The food was great, in fact, it was incredible. The service was not anywhere close to the caliber that it should have been for this level of restaurant and the pricing. We often waited for the server to come by to order drinks or request items. The server seemed disinterested in our table. I expect service like this in a hotel - but not the St. Regis. Honestly, I was embarrassed for them. Step it up!"
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "The quality of food is "high" where St. Regis is expected to be. The view/setting is "Hanalei Bay"....need I say more. My wife and I are from the SF Bay Area, and have been spoiled by the epicurean delights offered by the region; Makana Terrace is a MUST stop."
