The view was spectacular as was the food.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and eveningFrom the arrival view it only got better, the wait staff were extremely efficient and knowledgeable about the menu and ways the different items were prepared. It was a great way to end our wonderful week in mauai5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!The food, service, ambiance were all excellent. I will definitely return to Merrimans when visiting the island.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMperfect choice for special occasionif you are looking for a great restaurant in a prime location with a scenic view this should be your choice. we had dinner here, the food was great with a regional hawaiian touch and the staff especially our waiter gerry was very kind, attentive and professional. even as spoiled europeans we would recommand all of the food we had (salad of the day, warm goat cheese, merrimans mixed plate, taro cakes, warm masaladas, liliko'i tart, big island coffee) for a reasonable price. they have a nice wine list and the cocktails are great too!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother incredible evening!What another amazing dining experience! If you are visiting Maui, you need to have the dining experience at Merriman's. A complete localvore restaurant, only serving the finest, freshest, perfect preparations to delight the palate. Presentation is excellent. Timing of the courses perfect. Great service! Special surprise was the flourless chocolate cake presented to us to celebrate my wife's birthday - a great touch from a classy restaurant. A wonderful wine list and a dangerous cocktail menu. If you know what to look for there are some obscure low priced wines that are an absolute steal The view is beyond spectacular!!!!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were treated like island royaltyMerriman's was recommended by our representative from Diamond Resorts. For us it is a special occasion restaurant where it is almost impossible to spend less than $100 per couple. However;it is worth every penny. Our server was warm and attentive and we enjoyed his detailed descriptions of select dishes. Special care is taken to maximize the view and the food tasted even better in the glow of the sunset.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMStunning views!!Excellent food. You must go at sunset for the amazing view!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful setting on KapaluaBeautiful setting on Kapalua Bay. Great place to dine at sunset but get there early. Pricey but excellent quality ... fresh fish and veggies ... unique preparations.We loved the Mong Chong preparation and presentation with the black rice! The Taro Hummus was a real treat.
When restaurant is full, noise level is too high to hear music.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in MauiMerriman's was outstanding in every way! Fabulous food, beautifully plated and well served. No more pricy than any other good restaurant and well worth it. The wok seared Ahi was to die for! Smaller portions are offered, too. All of this plus the view makes Merriman's the absolute best. Can't wait to go again.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealWe had our anniversary dinner there. The food was awesome and the service impeccable.

We shared a dessert suggested by our server that was not on the menu - a warm chocolate/macadamia nut tart with vanilla ice cream - it was awesome!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply our favorite spot onSimply our favorite spot on Maui.

We arrived about 15 mins before our reservation time. The hostess told us our table would be ready in about 10 mins. The restaurant had just opened and they began to seat 2 or 3 other parties that were waiting. Time went by about 30 mins and then all the parties coming through the door were given tables. We are still at the bar waiting. If nothing else this location is known for its views. The food is good and the chef is well known. But a great table is a big part of the experience. That's why we made our reservation at the time we did! We were even reminded 3 times by email and phone of our reservation time.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeEverything about our dinner there was fabulous. Some of the best food I have ever had.

Every once in a while you find a restaurant that is firing of all cylinders, Merriman’s is one of them. From beginning to end the food was extraordinary. A complementary plate consisting of a plank skewered with miniature tomatoes, cucumbers and watermelon radishes was fresh and flavorful. The Manhattan was one of the best, if not the best, I ever had. The starters were a combination of Ahi sashimi and Ahi poke and roast pig quesadillas. We opted to split a beet salad with Burrata cheese. The bread delivered to the table was fresh and warm. The special crystallized salt added huge flavor to the unsalted butter. My wife’s entrée, Wok fried Ahi was charred on all sides with a rare to raw center, It was accompa4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMR & CWOW - have always searched for words to describe a special dining experience but our recent visit to Merriman's is best described as WOW .. exceeded our expectation in every category - outstanding location and view - food beyond compare - attentive service.
Would highly recommend an evening worth remembering,at Merriman's in Maui4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic place to eat. TheFantastic place to eat. The best meal we had in Maui. A must do while on this island.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial experience at MerrimansWe love Merrimans; from the clever, tasty menu to the extraordinary service to the unbeatable view, it's the perfect place for a memorable dining experience. Try the vodka and pineapple cocktail; sampler appetizer platter, kale salad, any fish entree and pineapple upside down cake. Yum!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about Merriman'sEverything about Merriman's was wonderful. The location is amazing and the restaurant has a great feel to it. The service was great - very friendly and attentive. The cocktails - strong, but also flavorful. The food - wow. Overall, a great evening. Dinner here will set you back a bit; so drive *yourself* to Hana, and use the money for the bus-tour here!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food with a local/organicWonderful food with a local/organic Hawaiian flair. Our waiter was exceptionally attentive and the food (kale salad, various seafood preparations) were absolutely wonderful. Pineapple upside down cake (made with banana bread - a nice twist) was delicious for dessert. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant -- expensive but worth it. In my opinion the best spot on Maui.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBad night to Great becauseBad night to Great because our server, Gary (sp?) made it that way. We arrived in not the best spirits due to our 11yr old girl and grumpny parents (13yr old boy actually was best of us all!?)...Hostess totally goofed up as we checked in VERY early and I said we'd wait for a nice lanai table. We were called and seated at a table against temporary wall seperating private (loud understandably) wedding party...but after drinks and our waiter taking care of us and comping us a dessert or two without our asking, it completely saved the ambiencne of the evening. Food was fantastic as well, but without great service to make up for the rest, this would be a bad review.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, Staff & Ambiance... 5 Stars!As a Foodie and a lover of a unique blend of Hawaiian Cuisine, my husband and I were truly impressed by the service, food and all around atmosphere of Merriman's. We dined at Merriman's to celebrate our 12 year Wedding Anniversary and was not only greeted warmly by all of the staff but was treated like we were royalty. We have eaten at many restaurants around the U.S. and we are very happy to boast that this awesome restaurant is right here on our Island where we were born & raised. The service itself was 5 stars and the food, absolutely superb. We love restaurants that participate in "farm to table" cuisine and Merriman's has stolen our heart. I think it will be tradition for us to return year after year. It is now one of our favorites4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMa must in Maui.A beautiful restaurant in a beautiful place. We enjoyed that most of the food served here is "farm to table". Highly recommended.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingExceptional meal and service at this gem in Kapalua. This was by far the best restaurant we visited during our two-week vacation in Maui. The ocean view is breathtaking, and no detail is left unattended to. Service was spot on, and our meals were to die for. Would highly recommend!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely amazing! We webnyAbsolutely amazing! We webny three timea during our stay ( not to mention twice to Monkeypod and twice to Hula Grill - both Merriman restaurants!) Food was amazing, as were the views, the service, the ambiance!!

We ate there twice.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and drink menuExcellent food and drink menu with an even better view. Way better than Mama's Fish house and more affordable to boot. On an island with spectacular views, you will be hard pressed to find a nicer view than the patio at Merriman's.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to watch sunsetLove this place. It's my fourth time there and always a must do when I visit Maui.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrate at Merriman'sWe celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and were seated at the "best" table in the house, with a beautiful view of the sunset... a wedding was occurring at the same time, which reminded us of why we were there!!
