Diner Reviews
  • "Asked for a view table for 6. Received. Service was prompt and courteous. Ample amount of good food. View is fantastic."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "We went based on the Fodor recommendation, the view was the best part of the evening but the food and service were lacking. Small selection of entrees.and even smaller portions. Pretty to look at but lacked consistency in the flavors. Free range chicken dry and unappealing. Didn't bother staying for desert."

  • "The views from The Plantation House are very special and the food is very good . Good service, brunch is great"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Restaurant location and view is outstanding. The food was just ok. From the reviews I heard from others, I had much higher expectations of the food for the price."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Great food, awesome service, and AMAZING views!!! This is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, which is exactly why we were in Maui to begin with- celebrating our honeymoon! Our server brought out a complimentary glass of champagne, as well as a sweet card to congratulate us- really great touches :-) We will be back!"

  • "Great Beautiful location, loved it. Food was good, but felt that all evening it was missing something........a little bland....."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "each year we make our traditional trek to Plantation House to celebrate our first night on Maui. Probably a dozen times now. We treated another couple to our tradition this time. The food has always been consistent and the restaurant has a nice setting. We have never had anything but friendly attentive service until this evening. Waiter didnt even sense that the service was slow and that his attentiveness was lacking. We will still return in the future but hopefully with different wait staff."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The view from anywhere in this restaurant is gorgeous. One of the best views on Maui!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "I live in the area and love going to the plantation House for breakfast. I brought my sister here who goes to many restaurants all around the world and she said the view was spectacular. It is a must for someone who loves to have a eggs Benedict breakfast."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Always save this for our last night on Maui and it never disappoints. Ambiance, food well worth it. Short rib ravioli sensational; highly recommend if it's offered."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The service was prompt, not pushy. Food was excellent especially the fresh fish. The sunset view was spectacular. We always have one meal at this restaurant when we are in Maui"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Although the Plantation House offers a beautiful setting it is not worth the trip. Although the dining room was only 1/3 full, our waitress took 15 minutes to find us. Once our food arrived it was barely edible. All four of us decided to never return."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "After coming to Maui for years, we had still never been there. Now I can't wait to go back !!!! While we stay on the other side of the island, I am hoping The Plantation House will be a yearly ritual."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Beautiful view of the mountains, golf course, and sunset. Food was decent however could be better. I would recommend adding lobster and crab legs to the menu such as a wonder Lobster Riscotto. Golfers should have to eat at a separate area during dinner hours as it looks odd for golf attire in such a nice restaurant."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Plantation House was recommended as a premier room where the view, service and food would justify the high prices. While the location and the view met these expectations the service and the food failed to justify the cost. Our favorite wine was listed at five times store price. Service was inattentive and abrupt. The Calamari and the Beet Salad Starters were good but lacked flair. The Daily Catch was good but the Beef Short Rib was served cool and dry with vegetables that were previously overcooked and served cold. Nice view, overall poor value."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Excellent service. Chef was willing to change menu for our tastes. Spectacular sunset view. Great winelist."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The service is very nice, the atmosphere is marvelous. Right before getting desert menu my mom mentioned that we came to celebrate my birthday. And while we are looking at the menu, the lady brought special birthday brownie and birthday card with signatures of people working there. I feel warm and love!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Last dine here 20+ years ago and had a wonderful dinner. This time we were disappointed. My wife's cap reeve salad was mostly tomato with very little mozzarella or balsamic. My lamb did not taste strongly of lamb (which I like) but was dominated my the bordelaise sauce (which was good). I found the lamb at Merrimans to be much better."

  • "Great location, good food, wine is a bit over priced but excellent selection. Fantastic sunsets if the weather is good."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "hostess apathetic and clumsy, server rude and careless, food over cooked and cold, no candles for birthday dessert, out of several items on menu and from bar."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Very small portions, the scallop appetizer I could have done at home, only 4 and very small. Food presentation uninspiring and the pineapple cake we felt was made with canned pineapples. Overall not good."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Food and service was outstanding...second only to the view."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Lousy evening. Over priced and not worth losing a night in Paradise when there so many good restaurants"
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We have been going to this restaurant since 1999 when visiting Maui. We think of it as the grand finale to celebrate our vacation and our anniversary. The server was very upfront telling us of the changes and helping us with the new menu but we seriously missed their Taste of Mediterranean and other fish preps. Our $250 meal without appetizer or dessert was very bland. Wish we knew where the former chef is working now. The server did a fairlygood job but due to another servers last minute illness, she served about 8 tables instead of 4 thus the level is service (such as keeping our $96 wine poured) was lacking. The end of a great thing. We will go to Mama's Fish House for that special event one."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "We eat here every time we come to Maui. Winter seating around 6:30 - 7:00 will usually produce the most beautiful sunset while enjoying a lovely meal. Not a usual tourist restaurant. Relaxed atmosphere combined with fine dining."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The view is spectacular, however the service and the food were far from good. Salad and meal were brought at the same time. Had to send the food back so we could enjoy the salad. Pretty sure the food sat for 1/2 hour till we were served. Quality of food was not worth the price! Very disappointed in the service and food as a result."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised by the food and ambience. My only complaint was that the service was a little slow."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Excellent overall. We celebrated our 30th anniversary there. April provided very good service and the seafood was pricey but well worth it."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "We brought w/us a birthday cake and 2 bottles of wine, not to mention a 4.5 year old, and they accommodated it all w/out incident. I realize these are not customary but they obliged making her birthday a memorable one. Thanks"

  • "Hawaii was our CHRISTMAS gift t one another. Our dinner was the Valentine gigot. It was a wonderful way to cap it all off. It was a eloquent and special evening."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was okay, nothing to wow you; other Maui restaurants are better especially in that price range. Service slow."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Excellent view, ambiance and service. It was not cheap but then nothing is cheap on Maui and this is worth a special dinner."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "when staying in the Kapalua, Maui area for the last 30 years, we have always gone to this restaurant, because the scenic view is just outstanding, we will not be back. We liked the wine, Patz and Hall Pinot Noir. The fried calimari was made of the body of the octopus, the pieces were 5 inches long, 1/2 inch wide, taste was ok, but it should have been described better, we would nothave ordered it. The caprese salad was served on a round dish with a cuplike indentation in the middle, 2 slices of tomato fit into this with the cheese and some basil, and a peeled half tomato on top with a toothpick it in to hold in place, disappointing"

  • "One of the most beautiful views you can find anywhere. The restaurant is high up overlooking the golf course with an oceanview and the tall Cook pine trees . Breathtaking!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Food and service excellent. Beautiful dining experience. The view is incredible."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "You go to The Plantation House for the sunset view. It's amazing, one of the best on Maui. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the service was very good. However, my wife's duck was overcooked, which was disappointing. When informed of the issue the server and manager removed the duck from our bill and provided a free dessert as compensation. Both very much appreciated. My meal was fine and the dessert was very good. I would definitely give them another chance."

  • "Dined here many years ago when it first opened and I remember it well. Still a great experience and excellent food. Missed the sunset this time around as it was a rainy afternoon but still enjoyed coming back!!!! Will always be a special place on Maui for dining!"

    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "I have been to Plantation House several times on my yearly visits to Maui, and keep going back mainly because of the breath-taking views. It has been two years since my last visit, and I'm sad to say I was pretty disappointed with the menu. I loved the old menu that had multiple preparations (Meditteranean, Hawaiian, etc), and offered a vegetarian option for every choice. Portions seemed skimpy to me, not the best waiter in town either...had better, more attentive service at Cheeseburger in Paradise. Hostess and bussers were all terrific. All in all we go back to PH because of the memories made there, and the unbeatable views it has to offer. However I think it might be time to find a new place to look forward to splurging at each year."
