A word from Nick's Fishmarket Maui
Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, located at the spectacular Fairmont Kea Lani Maui, offers the finest in local and mainland seafood in a lush, tropical paradise setting. The romantic flair of the Mediterranean is seen in the restaurant's decor from the rich earth tones of its color scheme, to the crisp white curves of its enchanting architecture. Patrons dining outdoors will fall under the spell of overhead, vine-covered trellises with fragrant stephanotis blossoms and sparkling lights, while looking out over the lush grounds of the hotel and onto the beautiful ocean view. Innovative, classic cuisine is the focus of this premier restaurant. Specialties include fresh Opakapaka, Mahi Mahi, Ahi, Opah, Hawaiian Spiny Lobster, and standards such as Prime New York steak, Rack of Lamb and Greek Chicken. Whether it be a romantic dinner, a family celebration, a business function or just a night out with friends, Nick's Fishmarket Maui is the Valley Isle's first choice in dining.

    Service was incredibly slow. Tables near us that arrived later than us, got menus, drinks & food before we got menus. Even after 2 comments, service still was slow. Our waiter seemed to disappear even before our order was placed, never to be seen again. No one asked how our meals were or if we wanted anything after dinner. A shame as the food was very good.

    Always a lovely evening when we are dining at Nick's. The staff is so professional without being stuffy. The food is decadent from start to finish and we always start with the Tiger Eye - excellent !! This is a dining experience you'll love. Watch them put on a show when you order the strawberries - impressive and yummy!!

    We really enjoyed our dining experience at Nick's. The service was excellent and so was the food. We were there for Wailea Restaurant week so we took advantage of the $49 pre fixe menu. The pot stickers and homemade soup (crab/fresh fish chowder) were both great appetizers and the fresh island catch was delicious. The food came in a timely manner but we were never rushed. The atmosphere was nice - tables not too close together and the restaurant wasn't so loud that we couldn't enjoy conversation. Expensive, yes, but a nice spot to celebrate a special occasion.

    I know it's a hotel but service was a joke. Waiters had no idea who was doing what, kept approaching with the same questions or the "cool hand towels" over and over. Ran out of the drink I ordered and after a weird apology didn't stick around to find out what else I wanted. Worse yet, all the food is so overwrought! Salsas on top of crusts over sauces. An appetizer of crab cake wrapped in ahi--a huge baseball of flavorless of crab wrapped in a slab of tuna that had been massaged and shaped to death. Very unappealing, no subtlety. My lobster came with vanilla something-or-other sauce and a side of mac 'n cheese carbonara!! Also flavorless. I could see the pancetta but not a hint of flavor. To their credit the creme brûlée was perfect.

    Dined on 11/5/2014
    We dined at Nicks while staying at the beautiful Fairmont Hotel in Wailea. Our meal took almost 3 hours from start to finish due to the extremely slow service. We were seated quickly got the iPad with the drink menu and sat and waited almost 20 minutes to order from a man we believe was the manager. Our waiter was there but did not come back. A total of 5 different people came to the table to help over the evening which felt disjointed. They were all friendly but never seemed to get the memo. It became excruciating waiting an hour to order food with long, long lapses in between each contact with staff. When the food came, my scallops were under cooked and my moms NY steak was flavorful but chewy and sinewy. go to Ko's At Fairmont it's nice.

    Our group reservations at another restaurant got messed up so we quickly looked for an alternative for 8. Luckily nicks had room, we had great food and the service was over the top. We had eaten at mamas fish house the night before and it was great but this beat it by mile with their ambiance, service and especially the food. The hotel is really pretty as well!

    Service was horrible. Waiter cleared my table after main told us he would be back with a towel and dessert menu. We waiting at least 20min until someone realise we were just sitting there. All the other waiter tried not to make eye contact with when we were trying to get someone attention. We then ordered the creme brule. We were told there was none left. The table that finished their mains after us got to order before us and manage to get the last one. What a disappointing especially because it was my girlfriend's birthday and our last night in Maui and also here favourite dessert. Service is just horrible with the fops being so-so. Worest experience ever. Thought I treat my girlfriend but instead gave her the widest night in Maui

    Great ambiance but the service while pleasant was uninformed and frankly not well schooled. To be working in a restaurant that feels entitled to charge outrageous dollars for what they serve, they must measure up. All were too young and inexperienced in hospitality. Overall the food was good but only if half the price. One can do better elsewhere.

    Went here our last night of our honeymoon and wow what a great way to end our time in Hawaii. My husband is not a fish fan and ordered the lobster dish which he liked but I convinced him to just try my dish and to my surprise he said he liked mine better than his. That says a lot if a restaurant can turn a man who doesn't like fish into one who said he may need to change his view on fish. The service was top notch and staff was very attentive. We will go back again in a few years when we go back to Maui. Great night!!

    Nick's is one of our go-to restaurants when we visit Maui for the great service, excellent fish, and ambiance. Although it is not right on the ocean, it overlooks the lovely grounds at the Kea Lani hotel. Palm trees, palm trees, ponds, and pools are lit at night for a delightful scene. The servers time the meal well. The opakapaka (pink snapper) was prepared exactly as we had ordered it. We were seated at one of the tables-for-two away from several larger parties with children, perfect for a romantic evening.

    A fellow traveler had recommended this spot. It was close to our hotel so thought we'd give it a try. I wanted to love this place as the views are gorgeous as you walk down the stairs. The bread they start you w is amazing. The rest of the food was fair. We had the dumplings. They lacked the flavor I was expecting. The dinners were also mediocre. If it were me save your money for another nearby gem.

    Nick's Fishmarket in the Kea Lani Hotel is in a great location. The service is a little crazy, there were at least 5 different people who came to our table to give us menus, take our drink order, our dinner order and our bill. It felt very overdone and not too sincere by any of them. The food was good but nothing exceptional and very expensive. We had the fried calamari appetizer which was good but came out luke warm. I had the Opakapaka fish which was very good and my husband had a filet which he enjoyed. Sitting outside on a warm night was very enjoyable and it is a beautiful hotel.
