    This was a special occasion dinner and we were more than thrilled with our experience. We had the chef's blind tasting menu paired with wine and we enjoyed the surprise courses. Very high quality choices. Service was personal and outstanding. Chef stopped by and chatted. All in all a memorable experience. We were staying at Koele Lodge and dining at the Dining Room was part of a very tranquil and enjoyable vacation.

    Our first time dining experience there, we opted for the ala carte vs the blind tasting. I had a glass of Dr. H' Riesling with my main dish "snapper", which was cooked excellent, crispy skin and not overcooked. It was accompanied with wild rice and caviar. My husband had the poach lobster... Melts in your mouth! The service by all of the staff was excellent fine dinning quality! They were professional and yet personal. We had a very romantic seating by the fireplace ..cozy elegance. very pricey$$$$$, was not impressed with the crabcake starter. 3 1/2 stars overall experience. The cost will prevent me from coming back.

    The food was good but a little over-priced. All the courses were delicious and timely in coming out. The restaurant was always empty for us, but the service wasn't any better as a result. I would recommend it, especially given how few choices there are for food on the whole island.

    We've stayed at The Four Seasons Resort Lanai "The Lodge at Koele" on several occasions and have always looked forward to dining in "The Dining Room" there. This time, we were initially disappointed to find out (only after we'd been seated) that there was no a la carte menu any more ~ only their "Chef's Tasting Menu." However, I did go for the whole nine yards, complete with wine pairings, and I enjoyed every bite! Beautifully done. Great service ~ professional, yet not "stuffy."

    This is a fixed price/set menu dining experience at the Koele Lodge. The offerings were thoughtfully created and well prepared. If eating early, consider a window-side table, otherwise eating in front of the fireplace is pretty nice!

    We returned after having our honeymoon dinner 12 years ago...you did not disappoint! With linen, fine dinner wear and a fireplace that is timelessly romantic. My husband got the chef courses with wine paring and I ordered the Hawaiian Snapper with a salad of local greens. We also ordered a chocolate soufflé. A culinary delight is how I would describe our meals. The topping was our name being printed on the menu with a message being written on chocolate for our Anniversary as a special touch.

    My new husband and I enjoyed a quiet romantic dinner in this fabulous lodge and restaurant during our honeymoon on Lanai. I had the 5 course tasting menu with accompanying premium wine pairing. It was out of this world. Service was impeccable, attentive but unobtrusive. Didn't feel rushed and was able to slowly enjoy dinner and each other. Best meal I've ever had.

    Our first time to the Dining room. We both did the special dinner with wine pairings. Dinner was wonderful. We look forward to coming back again. The decor is wonderful and the Lodge at Koele is such a special place. This is a must in in Lanai
