Tidepools - Grand Hyatt Kauai
Best meal on KauaiHad the second most wonderful meal of my life at Tidepools! First was at the Four Seasons in Wailea. The ahi was so wonderful, every bite was heaven. And to top it off the restaurant itself was the most exotic, romantic restaurant we have EVER eaten at. So amazing on so many levels. I was hesistant to book because of the cost but it was worth every penny and will be an event we always remember6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWater diningThe food was great and the view was spectacular. Be sure to take your time and enjoy the food. The staff was great and, unlike home, we didn't feel rushed at all.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall good to very goodAlthough we expected the prices to be on the high side the meals were good, but not that good. Although not a major distraction, kids still made their presence known. Ambience is great and overall an enjoyable evening.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice resort restaurantTidepools isn't the best restaurant on the South shore of Kauai, but it is decent and (if you're staying at the resort) convenient. Our fish was prepared well, though the dishes themselves may not have been as creative as other restaurants (like the Beach House). The bananas foster bread pudding was so good we went back again for it. However, despite the restaurant not being close to full, we still had to wait 10-15 min. past our reservation time before we got a table.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM3 out of 3Third time dining at Tidepools since we discovered it in 2009. We make reservations about a week in advance and have never had an issue getting our preferred day and time. Free valet for diners if you're not staying at the hotel. Enjoy the walk along the beach path after dinner and if you're lucky you may find an open beach swing (porch swing type seat). Fish meals are fabulous, and the filet minion was superb. Ask for a table that's not in the aisle as those can become a little noisy as people/staff start moving around.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAwewome experience!!We were on the island for 10 days and had dinner there one evening!! It was amazing!! Great fresh fish!! Wonderful service!! Delicious dessert!! You can't go wrong!! It was worth the price!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingOutstanding in every respect of fine dining. We visit Tidepools every year on our wedding anniversary. Life couldn't be better.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good crustacean chowderWe're from New England and are accustomed to good seafood. Usually it's a disappointment when we travel. But that crustacean chowder was probably the best I have ever had. Really, really yummy. The crab cakes were also probably the best ever. As for the prime rib... Meh. Asked for it medium rare; it came medium well. My wife's entree (the seafood entree with three seafoods, including a lobster tail) was also pretty average by our standards.
Service was prompt & excellent.
Ambience was also outstanding.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time at TidepoolsMy Son and I visited Kauai so we decided to try Tidepools at the Grand Hyatt on a Wednesday. We had a wonderful time with Great Food and Service to match. Every table was filled when we arrived and we were thankful we had a reservation for 8 PM. Arrived early enough to wander the Hyatt's beautiful gardens along the shoreline and the various pools near Tidepools at Sunset (7:10 for us). Our visit to Tidepools was really quite nice - our waiter was friendly, informative, and fully engaged with each table he was working. We both got the seafood combo that was very good. Virtually everyone we encountered was honestly friendly. After dark get a table near the bridge to the bar to watch the fish. A perfect evening at Tidepools and the Hyatt.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe enjoyed our 13th Wedding Anniversary with Tidepools and it was amazing! Looking forward to coming back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGrand HyattBeautiful hotel and a beautiful dining spot over tide pools open air and at night the great sunset.

Food is notably stepped up in the past few years.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMKauai SurpriseTidepools on the Grand Hyatt property was the best place we dined in our 2 week stay on Kauai. This really surprised me because typically food in a hotel setting isn't this special. The setting was lovely and the service was impeccable. The prices were pretty much in line with other fine restaurants we visited during our stay but I would say a cut-above. We will defiantly go back there when we are on this island again.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best fine diningOne of the best fine dining restaurants in Kauai. With the ocean as a backdrop you can't beat the ambiance and the food is very good.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & great atomsphereThis was by far the best restaurant we ate at in Kauai.

My wife was a bit unhappy with our table location and when I mentioned this to the maitre d' and the fact that it was her birthday, he immediately moved us to a much better spot. Not only that - we also got a free desert, the best they had, ice cream on top of chocolate cake. Delicious... All in all the meal was great, a great romantic outing for a special occasion.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMan eceliymişler choiceOur meal was exceptional!
