Very good Seafood
We were lucky that we had a reservation, so we didn't have to wait. So I would recommand to do a reservation, because a lot of people were waiting for a table.
The two of us had Seafood. It was delicious. I took the special of the day and it was really excellent. The staff was very friendly.

My husband and I are in Maui for our honeymoon. We heard about this place from some co-workers back in reno, NV. We made reservations which provided us with the dining room menu vs. the grill menu for walk in's. the dining room is upstairs and the grill on the main level. The views from our table were amazing!!! Reservations were for 6 which was perfect timing for the sunset. The dining room is a screened in indoor/outdoor level. The rose the screens after sunset and lit the candles on the table! Very romantic. My husband had the miso glazed chicken and I had the filet. The chicken was AMAZING! My husband said it was the best he's ever had!! He is a pretty tough critic. While his chicken was great the filet was pretty dull. Great fish menu!

Fun bar scene with great sunset view and people watching at "dig me" beach. The blackened Ono fish tacos are awesome. You get two with a few chips. But the tacos are the thing don't be disappointed with the lack of chips. The main dining room is good especially if you sit along the railing over the bar for the view. The food upstairs is a little more formal but still very good. I always go for the fresh fish and wasn't disappointed.

We had dinner in the dining room. Our waiter provided excellent service and was very knowledgeable. He was very professional and pleasant. The dishes we had were flavorful, but the appetizer of braised pork belly was delicious and a delightful surprise. We would definitely return. However all of the waitstaff that we encountered were helpful.

My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Leilani's. The upstairs part of restaurant is for formal dining while the lower level is great for casual dining. Everyone was very friendly and various servers who passed us on the way to our table greeted us and welcomed us to this place. We started with crab cake appetizers which were tasty and contained plenty of crab. My wife enjoyed the prime rib which was a very tender, boneless and properly prepared. It included mashed potatoes and vegetable medley. I had a spicy tuna filet that was awesome and also contained the vegetable medley and rice. We were surprised with the Hula Pie for dessert which was great to share. In summary, this restaurant had great food, service and prices!

A Maui Favorite
Leilani's is a must for us when we visit Maui. One of the best dining
experiences on the island. Reservationsa must!

Great Crab cakes and super service
Easy to get reserations at last minute so table was just OK. The food made up for it. Had crab cakes and wedge salad as entree and husband had baby back ribs. Both were delicious, especially the crab cakes. Topped it off with a Hula Pie of course, and very pleasant conversation with very attentive waiter. Very reasonably priced considering location!

Dinner at Leilani's
Made reservations and had virtually no wait for my table. I had ahi sashimi (appetizer) prime rib (texas style) and crab legs. All were excellent the ahi was fresh, the prime rib tender,and the crab legs were very easy to get into shell seemed to just crack wide open with very little effort.

Love love Leilani's!
Right along the beach path at Kaanapali beach! Amazing place to watch sunset. Book early and try to get a table along the front railing for best view! The fresh fish dishes are delicious! The salads are great! We've tried just about everything there (dine there 2-3 times each visit to Maui). Crab cakes are delish! Scallops are yummy! The best is dessert...Hula Pie! It's a food icon! If you bring your receipt from your first meal, the next Hula Pie is free, worth it to eat there twice, trust me! The staff is great... Willing to take time out of their busy night to take pics during sunset. Had Stephen and John as servers our two visits this trip, both were super friendly and helpful with the menu! Love this place!

We came here for our Honeymoon 32 years ago and again this last week. Just as great.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was 20 minutes late for reservation. Called ahead and they were friendly and accommodating. Got us in only a few minutes after we arrived during busy hours. Excellent, friendly service. Food was top notch in our party from fish to ribs to chicken. Caprase appitizer was incredible!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice location for sunset view
It is on a good location at Whaler's Village near the resorts, so definitely a good lunch/dinner option on a shopping day or if you are staying in one of the resorts. Food is good enough to stand on its own, and the tables along the rail upstairs have a great sunset view. I requested for a table along the rail upstairs when I made the reservation but unfortunately the hostess told us we would have to wait for half an hour for that (sunset will be gone by then), so we opted to be seated right away since we got our sunset pictures outside the restaurant anyway. Server was very nice and we actually got the Hula Pie for free.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Makes you want to return to Hawaii
Great food and service in a beautiful place. We have returned to this restaurant for years because it continues to impress.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely last night's dinner
We decided to have our last night's dinner at Leilani's. To our surprise we were taken to a beautiful table for 2 on the deck and were able to watch a beautiful sunset. Our dinners were both from the fresh fish selection and they were prepared to perfection. Dinner was a beautiful experience.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining and great view
We were running about 15 mins late but, the hostess was still able to seat us on the deck to view the sunset, just as requested. May thanks to them for that! Food was outstanding. We had the steak and shrimp and the breaded opah from the Opala menu (Sunday specials). Really good job all the way around. Highly recommend this for couples as the food, drink, and view combine to make a magical evening.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been coming to Leilani's for years any time we are in the Kaanapali area. Once again they did not disappoint. We dined early and had seats overlooking the water to be able to enjoy the sunset. Both of our meals were just great and the service was spot on.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time we travel to Maui there is a minimum of one dinner at Leilani's. The food is always fantastic and the outdoor setting is beautiful. Make sure you top off your meal with the Hula pie.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great meal - great view
We went to Lelani's since one of our group wanted Prime Rib and one had a good allergy. The prime rib was a very generous portion and cooked perfectly! The gluten and dairy allergy was addressed without problem. All of the meals got raves and the sunset view was breathtaking!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and view outstanding
We requested an oceanfront table and had to wait 5 min for something to become available but well worth it. Very attentive service and thorough recommendations of the menu items. We tried the mahi mahi special which was excellent, and way above my expectations. Must try the hula pie to cap off a perfect dining experience.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Leilani's - AWESOME
Leilani's was absolutely amazing. My reservations through OpenTable and my special requests were all meet. The food, ambiance, and scenic view were excellent. This place should be a definite stop for anyone going to Maui.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food...Great View
Excellent seafood restaurant right on the beach in Maui. Definitely worth a visit at sunset.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly enjoyed our evening
Truly enjoyed our evening meal. Loved the view and the outside atmosphere. We were not seated immediately although we had reservations but we waited no more than 10 minutes.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will return
This was our sixth visit in the last four years. The Seared Ahi tuna is to die for! Service was excellent. Overall, we have never been disappointed
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Leilani's Always a Good Choice
We have made going to Leilani's a regular occurrence on our trips to Maui. The food and service are always very good and the location on the beach at the Whaler's Village can't be beat. I had an excellent prime rib and my wife had the local catch of the day, mahjong (sp?) which she said was very good. Great Mai Tai's and the Hula Pie are always highly anticipated and never disappoint. Another good evening at Leilani's. We will be back again.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Words are not enough to comment on this place....best lunch menu in Maui....best view of water and at sunset the bomb.....early bird dinner is fantastic in flavor and price
We were on Maui for the past 30 days and ate here for lunch or dinner 12 times.....that meant that we had twelve hula pies for free at the next visit It is amazing that Marci or I did not gain a pound during our visit I lost 2 lbs go figure.....
IF IN MAUI YOU MUST TRY THIS LOCATION AT LEAST ONCE....BUT I KNOW AFTER THE FIRST VISIT YOU WILL RETURN
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view, good food
Our waiter seemed stretched too thin & was racing around too much.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Oceanside Dining
My husband and I went here on our honeymoon. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. A particular gem was the scallops appetizer. It was one of my favorite things I've ever eaten anywhere. We used the note/instruction section of the Open Table reservation app to request an oceanside table and they delivered! When we arrived, I gave my name and the hostess said, "Your oceanside table is right this way." Now that's what I'm talking about.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat here every year while on vacation. Service and food are always consistently good. They offer fresh fish prepared 4 different ways. Very tasty...
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great casual restuarant
Stop by when in Whalers village to enjoy this great Resturant. We dined in the more formal setting and the staff honored our request by seating us by the water. We celebrated our anniversaries and the ambience was nice. Special thanks to our super waitress Lisa for making it a fun experience. Make reservations if you'd like special seating. We did notice that families with small children were also enjoying dinner at the more casual lower level.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I enjoyed a meal
My wife and I enjoyed a meal for one of the nights of a 11 day visit to Maui. The dinner and service was very good. Very friendly staff and food was very good. The price was in line with simialr restaurants on the beach but we were happy with what we received for our money. The only comment I would make was that we were served almost too fast. It felt a little like we were being rushed even though we were in the upstairs dining area and there seemed to be plenty of tables. Other than that we had a wonderful experience.

Never miss a stop at Leilani's
With a son and family living on Maui, we get to the island often and never miss a trip to Leilani's. My wife had the Portabella Ravioli appetizer ($9.95) while I took the Wedge salad ($6.95). I'm not a mushroom lover, I can't say much about the ravioli but my wife had a happy face. The Wedge was very fresh, crisp and with a very wonderful dressing. We shared the Monchong cracker and parmesan crusted fresh fish ($31.95) as our entree. Leilani's split it for us without any request or urging, which is nice--and no extra charge. We usually split meals and have found that with an appetizer or dessert it is generally more than enough for the two of us. We had planned on a dessert at Leilani's but found we didn't really need it.

Another Great TS Restaurant
During our visit to the Hawaiian Islands, we have visited several restaurants in the TS family. We have never been disappointed with the food, the service or the ambience.
We do note that there is a similarity with the menus from the various TS restaurants, with very subtle differences. That being said, the customer service is outstanding, the presentation and quality of the food are great.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favourite stop
Have tried many of the restaurants that Maui has to offer. This has become one of our regular go to places. The sunsets never disappoint and nor does the food. Service has always been excellent.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Servers really need to be educated on what gluten free means
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Leilani's a must on Maui
Leilani's never disappoints, the food is always outstanding. The view at sunset is absolutely amazing. We almost always make it our first night dinner when we get into town. Foodies will love the presentations and pairing of ingredients. Do yourself a favor, don't miss it.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Brian was a very pleasant server and gave us good advise on the early menu. We enjoyed the ocean view and of course the finale...the hula pie.We will continue to return every year!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
2 friends recommended we try Leilani's. So glad we did. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Kristi out waitress was really nice and even brought us a Hula pie for our anniversary dinner. We will definitely come back to eat here.
I had citrus fish. Was so good. My husband ordered surf and turf. He enjoyed it very much. Mai tai's were the best ones we had all week.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Leilani's is a solid choice
One of several TS Restaurants on Maui (they also operate Duke's, Kimo's and Hula Grill), Leilani's is in line with the others in terms of food and service. Both are very good, if a bit predictable. What I mean by that is the menus at these restaurants are basically the same. But you can't beat the locations. All are beachside, so you get great views. We wit Leilani's at sunset. Beautiful. Overall? A satisfying experience.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyable atmosphere great food
Husband and I were in Maui and enjoyed eating here. View was great. Service great. No complaints. Ver attentive. But glad we made reservations.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great retaurant on the beach,
Great retaurant on the beach, casual, upscale dining, great ocean views. Nice menu, a little for everyone's palate, nice local fish selection. Food was well prepared, very tasty, nice portion sizes. Server was very good, knew menu well, helpful with dinner suggestions. Nice wine list, reasonable prices for the area. Definitely will come back here for another meal, lunch or dinner.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Anniversary Dinner success.
We were looking for a nice place to have dinner while in Maui to celebrate our 30th anniversary that wasn't over the
top. Leilani's was excellent with moderate prices, great food and wonderful views.
We will be back.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Great Evening in Paradise
A beautiful location with great food and service. You feel you are in Hawaii with the ambiance and atmosphere. Also has a lively bar scene in the cafe belie
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
During our two week stay in Maui we went to this restaurant 3 times! The first two were absolutely delicious but on our third visit my husbands surf and turf was not that good. The steak was over cooked but the shrimp were great. Most of my meals were good except for the pork stir fry which was 90% fat.
Loved the service and know that when we return in a year or two the food will be great.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great restaurant on the beach,
Great restaurant on the beach, casual, upscale dining with an ocean view. Our 2nd trip here this week, brought 2 friends with us this time. Great menu, great food, great service. An an all around enjoyable dining experience. Too bad we are leaving Maui tomorrow. Definitely will be back next time visiting Maui.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fresh and Friendly
Fantastic friendly service, a great wine list and amazing seafood! The atmosphere truly makes you feel like you are relaxing in Hawaii, I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, but my fish of
Great food, but my fish of the day was hot and wonderful, but sitting on a plate full of largely uniform cut up cold vegetables in a vinnegrette.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to Leilani's after we got married on the beach and could not have been happier with our choice! We wanted something nice, not too expensive, and not overly fancy; that is exactly what we got. My husband had asparagus and didn't care for it, but everything else was better than we expected!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect in every way!
Couldn't ask for more. The service, the food and the view were all wonderful!
Great evening. Will definitely be back again.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Request a seat along the railing
for a great view. Requested a table on the rail for a party of six. Arrived on time and were seated within 5 minutes. Drinks and appetizers were good and served promptly. Shared the crab cake appetizer and the fish house chowder, both were excellent. Others had the tomato salad and raved about it. The miso glazed fish was very good as a main dish. Mostly, you are paying for the excellent view so book around sunset. Hints: The restaurant is at the far end of the shopping promenade so be prepared to walk a little bit from the parking garage on the Ka'anapali Parkway. Also, make sure you get your parking stub validated for free parking.
