We dined there both nights while visiting Lanai. The entertainment on the weekend is amazing..a don't miss if you are there on Friday or Saturday.A magical restaurant on an equally magical island...

The real deal
Such a wonderful restaurant on such a tiny island, and no artificial "tropical schmaltz". Just great food and personal service.

This is the best restaurant
This is the best restaurant on Lanai (sorry Four Seasons). The food is locally-sourced, and includes goodies like Lanai-caught venison as well as fresh local fish brought in daily. Service is friendly and personal. Theresa and Jacob are particularly memorable in their attention to detail and great attitude. Michelle was our host the night we were there, and she made us feel welcome and special.

Only fine dining on the island
Only fine dining on the island beside the resorts, yet lives up to it's own high standards. Great dinner experience. Highly recommended.

This was our second trip to Lani City Grill. While the food was wonderful, the prices have crept higher and the menu needs refreshing.

Gem of a Restaurant
Excellent meal. Lovely ambiance. Great service. Best sea bass I've ever eaten! Lanai roll outstanding. Wine a bit disappointing for the price. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Knew of the culinary adviser from watching Top Chef, and we were not disappointed in the food. Great experience.

an excellent alternative to the Four Seasons dining options - they seem to try a bit harder, food and service-wise

Relaxing and superb
My wife and parents went to Lanai City Grille to relax and celebrate our wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, and Father's Day. Our waitress, Karen, was superb. When my mom could not read the menu because she forgot her reading glasses, Karen immediately offered her a pair of glasses from her apron. What a nice gesture! The food was excellent and the pacing of when the food came out was perfect. We did not feel like we were rushed or waiting for long. There was a local group who were playing local music which added to the relaxing ambiance. We will definitely be back here again.

Price is reasonable compared
Price is reasonable compared to two Resorts on the Island. Menu is great and tasteful.

The location being in a quant Plantation style bed and breakfast made us feel like we were at a family reunion with an Aunty that can really cook!!! Menu options were enough to give you some really good choices but not so much that it was overwhelming. One got the sense that a blind point at any item would result in a delicious meal. Everything was excellently prepared and presented with the feel that it came from a loved ones kitchen instead of a fancy shmancy joint. I had a pork chop that was perfectly prepared which is not an easy task. My wife had the sea bass and that was to die for. Comfort food fit for a King is what you will find at this great intimate eatery.

Everything was very tasty!
There were four of us for dinner, and everyone ordered something different. We were all very pleased with our selections. I ordered the crab sushi roll and dinner salad, my husband had the Joe's Meatloaf, and our friends had the Venison and Sea Bass and they were all very pleased. I tried a little of everyone's and it all tasted delicious! The Meatload wasn't dry, the Venison was very tender, the Sea Bass was cooked perfectly, and to top it all off we shared the Warm Chocolate Chip cookie with a ball of Vanilla ice cream. It was delicious! We highly recommend it! It comes in a little skillet and baked fresh as it's ordered. Overall we were very pleased. The waitress was very friendly and service was swift.

Seafood is one of top dishes...especially when prepared correctly. We dined at Lana'i City Grilled on two different nights. I had the Miso Sea Bass and my husband had the Sea Crusted fresh fish catch of the day...which was Mahi. The Miso Sea Bass was like eating Butterfish but without that fishy taste and the marinated in Miso have a special flavor. The fish was so tender throughout, no fishy taste and no bones. I loved my Sea Bass and so did my husband. Although he liked his Sea Crusted fresh Mahi, he liked my Sea Bass best. Appetizers are delicious, too, and desserts are exquisite. Our overall rating: EXCELLENT.

Local Flair in Lanai
There are not to many option for dining on Lanai, because of this there could be the potential for restaurants to get lazy because of the captive audience they have. Not the case here, ambiance was nice, very family friendly but would have no problem taking my wife there on date night. Food was good, servers were knowledgeable.

Great food in a unique environment!
A great restaurant in Lanai City and a nice alternative to the Four Seasons restaurants. Very warm service in an historic building. Can't wait to return!

Required while on Lanai
Great selection of dishes and a required complement to the on-resort restaurant options. Not recommended for a quiet, romantic dinner as the open bar setting creates a very energetic atmosphere (I.e. hard to hear a conversation even at your own table). Outstanding service overall, and creative dishes make it a must-do during your Lanai visit!

Welcoming atmosphere & great food
There are not too many dining choices on Lanai'i. This is a great spot that is away from the Four Seasons'. The bar is small, but welcoming and accomodating. We were here two different times during our week in Lanai'i and both times we were greeted warmly by Michelle, the manager. The menu has a lot of intersting choices, but the fish is out of this world. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times here.

Go go go to eat at Lahaina Grill.
I had the eggplant and my mom had the pork chop. We didn't order dessert or alcohol so are meal was very reasonable. Both of us were happy with the meals. The portions were satisfactory. We will definitely return.
We had a good time. The staff were hospitable.
