We love 5 Palms, particularly for breakfast. Great food, great service and beautiful South Maui views!!
Wait service was slow to start. We had to ask another waiter to ask our server to take a drink order. Server and wait staff was friendly. Our waiter had trouble keeping her mask on and was constantly touching and adjusting it. Not sanitary! We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and he loved his ahi. I ordered lamb chops that were very tough. Accompanied sweet potatoes and asparagus were delicious. We will come back and usually love the happy hour offerings in the bar for the price and the food. Our dinner for three was a bit spendy, but for a celebration once a year okay.
Great food and drinks, staff was attentive and responsive. Wonderful setting to watch the sunset and have dinner!!!
Excellent service, great food and A beautiful atmosphere which is ocean front. Will definitely recommend and will definitely go back again.
Service was excellent. Appreciate the enthusiasm when we entered. Food was excellent.
We were celebrating the sale of a house. Our Waiter was amazing. Very patient as we were chaotic. Food was timely and delicious. Ambiance was tremendous. I was very pleased with the celebration of my clients' home sale. Thank you for providing an awesome place to bring my clients and family. Aloha, Elizabeth Wood.
Aasha did a great job of making my wife's birthday dinner very special. The food, service, and table were perfect!
The staff was friendly and helpful... a fun experience for all
Great beach view location and the food was very tasty and reasonable.
Food was sub par for any price. Undercooked, cold and poorly presented. We didn't eat it and brought it home to cook so we could eat it.
Service person was extremely loud, maybe due to mask but we could more than hear her as could the whole restaurant area that we were seated in. We live on Maui, long time residents and past customers. We won't be back.
As always, great food & beautiful ocean view!
We have one suggestion: please have gal who cleans the tables wear a mask. It will help to make your guests feel safer.
Great service and view. Overall good food except for a so called Caesar salad which lacked egg garlic or anchovy’s. Just a lightly dressed lettuce salad. Moderately expensive
We went to 5 Palms for a special occasion meal, really lovely setting, excellent food and service. This was also our first time eating at a restaurant since the beginning of the COVID situation and the staff handled everything very well.
Our server was wonderful-- great recommendations and took great care of us. Best restaurant experience in a while.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect, especially because of COVID..but much to our surprise, it was an amazing night!! The staff was super friendly, and our waiter Brian was awesome!
They sat us at a perfect table that had a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset. The food was so delicious- started off with one of the best Caesar salads I have ever eaten...their dressing was perfect! I had the Togarashi Ahi...the flavors blended together so well ...it had the very tasty sauce, and the wasabi mashed potatoes were the perfect match! My husband's rib eye was cooked perfectly and was just so delicious!
We finished the dinner with one of the best lilikoi cheesecakes ever!!
We will definitely be going to 5 Palms again!!
Can’t beat the view. We go often and especially now that it’s reopened. The staff is always very friendly.
Bloody Mary’s going to other tables looked fabulous!!!
Ribs are just ok.
From a service stand point though, I do recommend clearing dirty dishes. Surprised us that they sat on the table for nearly 30 minutes. Even as staff strolled past our table multiple times. The server dropped the check and still didn’t grab the dirty plates. I actually put them at the end of the table stacked and ready. Restaurant wasn’t very busy.
We will happily continue to return and happy that they are open and employees are able to return to work.
(Note: We have been especially tipping well knowing staff has been out of work for awhile.)
But please check your tables! Clear dirty plates.
I’ll start by saying I will most likely come back. But over the years, my experience here has really been undesirable. I’ve made mention of the cleanliness before, and that was an issue again. The table and the wine glasses were not clean. The vegetable fettuccine was really great! But the New York steak was disappointing. The cut itself was hard to eat because it had thick sections of fat and some tendons that were hard to cut through. My waiter (and another I noticed) wore masks around the mouth but not the nose. I’m not sure what the issue was there as we all know the mask must be over the nose and mouth, but perhaps they had medical issues? If that’s the case, perhaps management should give you the option to be seated at a table with a server who wears a mask properly?
Wait staff was efficient and friendly. The dessert was off the charts good! (Mud pie).
I have to compare this restaurant to others in its price range, and there’s no comparison- Gannon’s wins hands down. Better happy hour, much cleaner facilities, and incredible food.
A great experience! Food amazing as alway. Good job with the social distancing! It was the first time I have eaten Putin months due to COVID, but I felt totally safe at Five Palms. We’re going back soon!
When we booked the reservation, we said it was our anniversary. The restaurant did not acknowledge our Anniversary. We were disappointed that the menu was limited and that wines on their menu were not available. However, the food was excellent!
My birthday breakfast party. The wait staff was very helpful and nice. The food took forever to arrive. When it did my French toast was burnt black and bacon was overcooked and black. I would’ve sent it back but it took so long. Over 30 minutes.I was afraid it would be a long wait again so I ate it .And my guests were eating. Usually my favorite restaurant because of the ambiance and ocean and beach views. There was supposed to be a bathroom attendant but that person couldn’t be located. So the waitstaff offered the kitchen bathroom instead. That was a 15-20 minute wait just locating a bathroom .
The 5 Palms has a great setting, very pretty ocean and beach view. The staff was very courteous when we were seated, but then the service started to go down hill.
The 5 Palms is one of the few restaurants to offer a corkage fee but that is all they do. Usually for the corkage fee the servers will open the bottle, bring it to temperature, serve in the appropriate stemware, and refill as necessary. For an exceptional bottle, you want these rituals done right so the service is worth paying for. Our server opened the bottle and then let it up to us to pour into our glasses. There was no offer to decant the bottle, fill or refill the glasses as needed. The food menu was limited due to circumstances but for a $40.00 dinner of New York Steak the cut should have been thicker and more tender. The accompanying sides were scalloped potatoes and a mixed veggie that were pedestrian at best. If the 5 Palms wants to attract return business they need to improve the quality that comes out of the kitchen, and the service in presenting their food. The view will only attract people for a one time trip, great food and service will keep people coming back again and again.
Excellent Service, yummy food! Beautiful view! Had a great time
The beautiful Five Palms Restaurant in Kihei is open! We loved our Father's Day lunch there and felt totally safe during Covid with the safety measures they have taken and their open air seating - both inside and out!
Fathers Day brunch
Food was delicious - beautiful setting!
Enjoy the atmosphere with the outside tables. Friendly service. Many choices on the menu.
Probably just because of the covid19. But the security guard or who ever was at the front door was a zero star.
We actually canceled our reservation and went some where else. The food and service inside is usually top notch. You just have to get through the Gestapo.
Our experience dining at 5 Palms Restaurant was wonderful. The ambience and scenic view was outstanding. The splashing of the waves was relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding. We will most definitely come back.
We love 5 Palms! Excellent food and friendly service in a beautiful oceanfront setting.
It is such a great restaurant, but a bit pricey for the quality of food, even with Kama'aina discount.
We said it was our anniversary when we reserved table, so hoped for a better table....the server did not know it was our anniversary. He was wonderful. But I thought since we made the note when reserving table the reason should have known.
very nice, Brian our waiter was amazing!
Wonderful sunset meal. We look forward to going back.
Elegant setting, food is high-quality and the preparation is excellent.
Great food, excellent ocean views
A unique experience oceanside; always unique menu items. Usually busy with tourists but right now we locals have it all to ourselves. Glad there open again.
My wife and I had dinner to celebrate our 32nd Wedding Anniversary. Brian brought us two glasses of champagne and made sure we had a very nice evening. He was very careful to wear a mask even though it must have been very uncomfortable. Great Job Brian and we will be back!
Divine, delicious. Magnificent views, Great Mango Mimosa. Lox and bagel melted in my mouth.
Great service. Happy patrons.
Having a place to dine out again was great. The staff reflected that with their enthusiasm. The food was plentiful and delicious, and the sunset topped it off.
Five Palms is one of the BEST restaurants on the planet. Great food. Great ambiance. Great service. So nice to go to a restaurant again! Open air!!
