Enjoyed the meal
We were there after dark so the ambiance of the waterfront was lost. We asked to have our candle lit, but it really wasn't bright enough to add romance. The food was good. The wine I ordered went well with my delicious prime rib. It was great to find a restaurant nearby our condo that wasn't tacos or burgers!

Breakfast at Five Palms
It was a very pleasant, ocean-side breakfast setting. The wait staff was very cordial and helpful.
5/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed every minute! A nice table, great food & service, all right on the beach!
Our server led us through several course including white dragon sushi paired with specialty cocktails, an exceptional fish trio & filet oscar, finished with a unique creme brulee. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was attentive yet unobtrusive. All in all, a great experience. Well fed, well served, we'll return!

Aloha I live in Kihei and 5 Palms is truly a gem. Consistent food & service. The view is outstanding.

A dinner at sea
This is a real good place to enjoy a romantic dinner in front of the sea. The proposed fish trio was exceptional and the appetizer as simple as a beet salad was full of flavors. The waiter was very thoughtful. My wife and I spent a really great lovely moment.

Five Palms rarely disappoints.
Five Palms rarely disappoints us, whether it is just for drinks & pupus or a big dinner. The food is fresh and the waitstaff is very friendly and efficient. Located on gorgeous Keawakapu Beach affords fabulous views of the ocean and outer islands of Maui County.

Spectacular view and food
This was our first visit to the 5 Palms and it won't be our last! We had a table with a beautiful ocean view. Our waiter was great as was the food. We chose the Early Bird special with salad, main course and dessert - it was excellent.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful view, food and service
This place lived up to our high expectations! A spectacular way to indulge yourself with a special breakfast!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best ocean front dining in Maui
My wife and I caught the early bird special which is a three course meal for $35 before 6. The "small" salad was wonderful and not so small. Both of us ordered the macadamia nut encrusted mahi. Best fish we had on the island. The portion was great, presentation beautiful, and sauces delicious. The service was stellar and no other restaurant can beat the beachside location. The view is one of a kind!! A must on Maui!
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dined with friends and were impressed with improvements!
We tried new items; mahi dynamite, hawaiian snapper, carpaccio,
all top notch quality and flavors. Lili and Amber were charming and accomodating. All in all, an excellent experience!

Had Lunch nice table real good staff very helpfull
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to the Five Palms in Keihei, Maui and were absolutely blown away by the service from this restaurant. Roy was our server and he went out of his way to make our evening special.
It wasn't just us who he was giving special treatment to, it was *every customer* who he made feel welcome and genuinely interested in.
The food was fantastic, the scenery was amazing - we could not have been happier!!!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful view. Our server Roy was awesome. Sunset special is a great deal for $35! Would definitely return.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great oceanfront dining view
Food is always good at Five Palms. Breathtaking view of the ocean while you dine. We usually go for breakfast but next time we are visiting, we plan to go for dinner and enjoy the beautiful Maui sunset. The wait staff is always nice and the manager checks in with each table and makes sure everything is OK. We hope to be back soon!
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Romantic outdoor setting
Spectacular food, drinks, service and best outdoor setting !!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had dinner, lunch and pupus here over three days. What a treat! Great sushi, delicious entrees and friendly, prompt service with stunning beach and sunset views. Our favorite South Maui restaurant by far! Don't miss!

5 Stars 5 Palms
Great service from the beginning to end. Our table on the patio had a great view of the ocean and the beautiful sunset. Natasha our server was very sweet and attentive. She recommended the chefs fish special of the day, Grilled Ahi with boursin mashed potato, bok choi and it was the best fish dinner we have tried on Maui. We will be back and recommend Five Palms to our friends.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great view and great food
Great place for outdoor dining right next to the beach. The staff was great and the place is kid friendly. Only negative was that it took a while to get our food, but if you're not starving and not in a hurry its a great choice.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, service and atmosphere
We celebrated our 35th anniversary at 5 Palms and everything was perfect. The ahi and 3 fish special were both excellent. The view of the beach and the sunset made it a very romantic setting. Our server Natasha was super. Will definitely return with family.

Great spot. Close to where
Great spot. Close to where we are staying. Corkage was $25 a bottle. Excellent service.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
great for a sunset view.
Crowded Aloha hour with a seat unavailable so were seated in dining room. Service was prompt. Food was good

5 Palms steps up
After coming to maui for fifteen years, and staying at the Mana Kia for twelve we have visited the 5Palms a few times. The last few years we stopped going to dinner there due to its lack of good food. This year we gave it another try and we are very glad we did. The fish dishes looked wonderful and the prime rib was great. Cooked to perfection.
We will go back!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food & Great Service
This was my 4th trip back to 5 Plams...always EXCELLENT! Tried the Sahsimi Trio appetizer this time and it was fablulous. All of our main courses were excellent and the sunset view spectacular!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic except the potatoes
Great place to take friends when they are on island. My only disappointment was that the ginger mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes out of box with NO flavor. Other than that, this is one of top spots on Maui for food and view.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happy Birthday to me!
We arrived at the restaurant and were seated promptly at an outside table that I had requested in my online reservation. Our server Lily was attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding. We shared the Lobster Dip pupu and both had the Trio of Fish entree (highly recommend!). Lily had inquired when we were first seated as to which of us was having the birthday. After our dishes were cleared she presented me with a piece of complimentary cheesecake with passion fruit drizzle with a candle in it so I could make a wish (we shared it and it was creamy, rich and not too sweet). We also ordered the Pineapple Creme Brulee and were equally pleased. All in all, it was a fantastic birthday meal and I wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

We discovered 5 Palms while
We discovered 5 Palms while on vacation last year and liked it so much we came back twice on this years vacation. Food has always been great, service is outstanding and the view from the dining room or outdoor patio is second to none in all of Maui.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for sunset!
Five Palms is probably one of the best restaurants on the south side of maui for sunset dining. Ben always gives us outstanding service. He goes out of his way to make it a great evening. The food is consistently good.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
BEST MEAL EVER!
I dined at Five Palms last night because a few locals were ranting about how good the food is there. When I walked in, JoJo welcomed me and my girlfriend with the BEST table in the entire restaurant! We were right next to the ocean and had a perfect ambience with the music playing and the waves crashing. Our server Dede did an outstanding job and made us feel at home. She recommended a sushi roll that was probably the best sushi I have eaten in my life! We are going to be on island for a few more days so we are definitely going to go back and sit in her section again. The managers were extremely friendly and I would give their restaurant Five Stars in all categories.
I love you Five Palms! ; )
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Stunning view. Decent food.
Husband liked his fish. My chicken was only okay. Nevertheless, the setting is do gorgeous and the service was great so would definitely go again.

A Way to End Your Maui Vacation!
We had a wonderful lunch consisting of the delicious Lobster Meat BLT Club Sandwich and the House Salad that was reasonably priced with a beautiful of the ocean, the island of Lanai and the West Maui Mountains. The waitress was very professional, courteous and attentive. the bus boy who poured our water was not people friendly. the busboy who brought the meal on the ohter hand was accommodating and friendly.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We wanted to spend some money on a nice restaurant while we were in Maui. While I believe the food was a bit over priced and the Creme Brule was not exceptional, this was still a pretty darn good place to eat with an amazing view. I highly recommend making a reservation for the best seats!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful location, great food, decent service, recommended
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous view, great service!
Wonderful experience....I asked for a nice table (through OpenTable) for my 60th BD and they gave us the BEST table in the house! The server was delightful, the ambiance first rate and the food (although not super fabulous) was very good and they brought me a lovely little BD cake. All in all a lovely evening.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful in Kihei
We came for the fresh fish and were not disappointed. Delicious dinner and great desert. Service was good.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great seafood and look forward
Great seafood and look forward to dining there again next time I'm in Maui

5 Palms is a must visit!
We made a reservation at 5 Palms based on a recommendation from a friend. Had a great dinner at a wondeful patio table. Food was outstanding and our server, Roy, was beyond compare. When in Kihei, 5 Palms is a must!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went overboard and tried various appetizers and entrees. Food is really good, service was outstanding. Would recommend.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Relaxed beachfront experience
The Five Palms never fails in providing great food at a moderate price, a spectacular view of Keawakapu beach, and as a bonus, the always friendly smile of our favorite host, Moki !!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful dinner at Five Palms, our server, Roy made the difference. He took it from a nice little dinner out to a great dinner out. He was attentive but not overly, good knowledge of food and specials. It really is all about the experience and Roy made it !
Our fish specials were outstanding.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best view on Maui
Love this restaurant for special occassions! Had Easter brunch on the lanai, and Thanksgivin in the main dining room. Highly recommend!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful setting, but overpriced.
We definitely enjoyed ourselves. However, $500 for dinner for 6 is a bit much, especially when 2 were non-drinkers. For that price, the food should really knock my socks off...however, I'd just say the food was above average.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Often overlooked, waterfront gem
Five Palms is one of our favorite spots on Maui, with its beach-side location, fabulous views, and consistently good food. We have often enjoyed lunch or brunch here, and dinner is good, too. The other night our meal was excellent -- some had the special monchong, one had scallops and prawns, and I had rack of lamb --- all delicious. My only complaint -- bok choy as a side -- who REALLY likes bok choy? We shared a mud pie for dessert -- YUMMY!
