On arrival, although I had requested a table by the water when I made the reservation, the hostess sat us in the back under the overhang. It was not until a manager came over did she seat us at an empty table where I requested. This did not get our evening off to a very good start. The food was spotty. Some dishes were lovely and some terrible. Prices were high. Wait staff was very friendly and nice.

Brown’s did not disappoint. Lovely setting, fantastic food and the service was top notch. Our water glasses were never empty, used plates were cleared quickly. Our server was friendly, welcoming and just plain delightful. We were there for our wedding anniversary and for dessert they surprised us with amazing kona coffee mud pie. We’ll definitely be back!

Wonderful food &service in a glorious setting on Hawaii Kohala Coast at Fairmont Orchid. Most beautiful Hawaiian beach restaurant ever. It is very expensive, at least$100 per person,but worth it if you can afford it. Had a delicious mahi-mahi special. Food superb— but real draw is it’s fantastic setting. Absolutely loved this fine restaurant. Go if you can on Big Island.

Browns has been our #1 for 8 years straight! This year was supposed to be extra special since I told them it was both mine and my husbands 50th birthday celebration. The table was not special at all!! We had zero view and by far the worst table we’ve ever sat at, the service was terrible, we waited almost an hour for our first course of a beet salad and the beets were hard as a rock, the lobster tails, Mac and mushrooms and ahi had so much salt that you couldn’t even taste the flavors of the food. We actually asked for our bill and were about to leave when they came with birthday dessert.
I was so disappointed-we always tell our family and friends this place is not to be missed but now not do much. I hope they can get things back on track.

Beautiful setting. Great service. I ordered a crab encrusted fish. It was horrible and obviously bad old fish not very fresh. The waitress was incredibly nice and swift about getting me a steak and doing her best to make up for it. The filet mug on was great. I was not charged for my dinner which was nice.

Everything was great except the seating. We advised in advance that we were coming for our 20th anniversary dinner and wanted a nice table with a view and they literally seated us in the back by the kitchen with empty tables all around. We asked to be moved and were put at only a marginally better table. Very disappointing when spending over $200 for a special occasion.

一昨年来て良かったので、2回目のサンセットディナーをビーチサイドの席をリクエストして予約しました。
ホテル宿泊客以外はあまり良い席をアサインされないこともあるらしく、最初に案内された席はビーチ側最前列からちょっと下がったところでしたが、我々の席についてくれた日本人のサーバントが気を利かせてくれてビーチサイドの席に移りました。
地元ミュージシャンの弾き語りに耳を傾けながら、ロゼシャンパンでロマンチックなサンセットを堪能し、トーチに火が灯るのを見届けてから一皿目が運ばれてくるという絶妙なタイミング。この心配りがあるのが最高ですね。

フェアモント宿泊中に彼の誕生日があり、予約して行きました。
夕日がキレイに見える席をオーダーしましたが、その通り夕日がキレイに見える席で食事出来ました。
料理もとっても美味しくサイコーでしたが、日本語が出来る方がいらっしゃらなかったので-1にしました。
ぜひまた行きたいです!

The view at Brown’s is spectacular. We sat on the patio at Sunset and, even on a cloudy night, it was absolutely breathtaking. The food is always excellent and our waiter gave us great suggestions. We had the prawn appetizer with carmelized Maui onions and tomatoes. The kampachi, which is a staple on the menu, was delicious. I love to order the specials which never disappoint. Last night the special was grilled ono with ulu (Hawaiian breadfruit) gnocchi, grilled asparagus and sautéed Hamakua mushrooms in a light tomato cream sauce. It was unbelievable! The service is also fantastic. They do a wonderful job making it a whole experience and are so attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!!

Great dinner at Brown’s. This place was recommended to us by a friend and it did not disappoint! It was amazing. Make your redaction early enough ~6:30pm to stop and enjoy the sunset. The Ahi was great!
