Diner Reviews
  • "Very good, fresh food. Service was a bit slow, but when I asked them to expedite our dinner, it came out quickly."

  • "At first glance of the restaurant, I took note that there were no table cloths, which made the room seem very casual for a high-end restaurant. The food was OK but not great. I ordered a filet mignon cooked medium, which means there should be a little pink inside, but it was cooked medium-well and was brown through and through. The steak was bland and lacked seasoning.I ordered bread pudding for dessert, and thought it was average -- it was a little dry so some sort of sauce would have helped. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. I left feeling mildly disappointed."

  • "This restaurant is a quiet little gem inside the Ritz Carlton. I was looking for a great farm to table restaurant experience and this more than satisfied it! The food tasted so fresh with all of its natural flavors! Some of the portions were a bit small though. I 100% recommend the paella and ceviche. Service was excellent! The staff was so friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable."

  • "I had very high hopes for this restaurant. After reviewing the menu online my husband and I were very excited. We had excellent service, our waiter could not have been more helpful. The Pineapple Cream (1944 Mai Tai) was divine. Food is very tasty, but for the price and portions I would rather go to Merriman's at the resort next door. Probably will not go back."

  • "Had a phenomenal meal at the Terrace. The whole experience was much more than we could have imagined. Outstanding food and wine pairings made the meal perfect. Thanks for such a wonderful evening."

  • "It is hard to believe that they use the same restaurant for breakfast and for fine dining. Unfortunately it retains the breakfast ambiance. I went to celebrate my wedding after a beach ceremony on valentines day. They knew about the wedding and did not make any effort to make it special. Food was good but the whole dinner was way overpriced! Breakfast is very good but go to Merrimans for dinner..."

  • "Dinner review: It is too bad a restaurant with such great food and great service looks like a Denny's inside. It is quite obvious upon entering the restaurant that it was designed to be a breakfast place, which makes you feel so out of place for dinner. Robert, our server was fantastic and deserves to work in a more appropriately designed-for-fine-dining dinner setting. All they really need to do is dim the lights and put some votive candles on the tables--that would be doing a little to go a long way to improve the ambiance there. They would probably get more business if they would make it seem like a different spot than where you ate breakfast--for some reason that's just not very sexy."

  • "The food and our server Robert were both fantastic. Usually hotel restaurants are a notch below, this one is top shelf."

  • "The Ritz at Kapalua used to serve romantic dinners in a beautiful open air dining room overlooking the ocean. We were very disappointed to find they are no longer using that venue and have relocated the fine dining restaurant to the enclosed, coffee shop location below the main lobby. Although the food is similar to that served before, the ambience is vastly inferior, and we doubt that we will return."

  • "We were welcomed by an excellent, professional waiter, Robert. He is French and seemed happy to put up with my kids' and my desire to practice French. The service was perfect throughout our meal and Robert was so friendly and kind. We all left with warm feelings about the restaurant. The food, however, was a bit variable. A flatbread with artichoke, goat cheese, and black olives was crispy, perfectly balanced and delicious. The burgers were excellent with lots of smoky flavor from the bacon. But when it came to more complicated dishes like the crispy opakapaka, it wasn't as good. The fish was a bit overcooked and the skin was actually rubbery. The wine list is fairly limited for a restaurant located in a prestigious hotel."

  • "The dinner was so good that we repeated the experience a second night. The best seafood paella on the planet. Friendly and personable wait staff.."

  • "We were definitely there at the end of September for our anniversary, and there was no email saying our reservation was a no-show. But two and a half months later I see in my Open Table account that there were no points given even though the dine was recorded. I cannot figure any other way to communicate this, so here it is. This is a lovely restaurant on the beach, or as close as you want to be for fine dining. Food is good, but two months later I can't remember too many details. I heartily recommend the Ritz Terrace, but MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR OPEN TABLE POINTS!"

  • "The restaurant was lovely and the food and service were fabulous. Nevertheless, it was hard to enjoy because the room was way too cold. There we were in Maui with great weather and the Ritz kept the room too cold."

  • "I thought it was going to be a very nice place, instead it was a a country club a place you would go for a beer after golf. The wine list was very extensive ,but overall not the place you want to dress up for. And very very expensive ."
