The service was very attentive and friendly, the menu covers all tastes and they had a couple of specials, one was fresh monchong that was perfectly prepared. I had the lamb chops that were also great. We felt 100% safe with distancing and sanitation. Prices are reasonable and a good value. Yes, we are coming back

We were greeted warmly, and seated at the best table.

It was a celebration of our 37th anniversary. Our daughter (unbeknownst to us) had called the restaurant ahead to make sure we had a wonderful evening - and we did - from drinks to dessert!

Our server Toby was so sweet and accommodating. The food was good. And the sunset was award winning. This was only our second dinner out in six long months - and surpassed our expectations.
We will be back, and will talk up 5 Palms to our friends!

Would recommend all our appetizers and entrees. The creme brûlée was complimentary due to a birthday and while appreciated, was not the best.

The server was not attentive, my guest had specific requests of her dish that he ‘ignored’? And when pointed out to him he made no attempt to commiserate not correct it. Never asked if we wanted another beverage. We will request to not have him again.

We’re going back this Sunday.

Even from the check-in, it was a negative. There seem to be trouble finding our reservation. We were seated at a lovely table outside with no placesettings. When the server brought them, he just set them down and I set the table myself. There was life music so after ordering our drinks we requested to be moved inside because conversation was not possible and it was a very special birthday party. The calamari appetizer with soggy-even the salad was wilted. I could tell that the food was going to be disappointing so three of us ordered hamburgers. Clearly, the quality of meat was not good. The hamburger was greasy. The prices have gone up considerably and I understand that the cost of doing business in tough times such as this can’t be easy. As much as we want to support our restaurants that are open, it was a very disappointing experience for evening dining. The entire top of the table was wet from the condensation of the water in our server never bothered once to address it. I asked for extra napkins to sop up the pools of water. Five Palm’s restaurant has the view going for it. Breakfast is always enjoyable; but our special occasion for a 93rd birthday will be a do over. We were extremely disappointed. They did bring her a complementary dessert. Enjoy the view.

Come for the sunset and service, stay for the food. Delicious Hawaiian resort fare served under swaying palms and one of the best sunset views on the island. Our visit ran a little long, but the staff was attentive and we enjoyed the sunset - which wasn't the same view twice. While I am interested in exploring the other entrees, I will suggest you try the poke appetizer, so ono! It's a spicy/salty must have.

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.

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.

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

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!!
