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.
Delicious food in an amazing atmosphere with excellent service
Best food ever!!!! Their Ocean Lemonade with vodka was the best drink I had! Our server Christian was very attentive and funny! Definitely go here if your in the area!
Nice place a little pricey though.
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.
Lovely outdoor waterfront setting, acoustic guitar player, fabulous service and food. Loved our meal here- truly memorable.
Really enjoyed it, everything was fabulous and then there was that sunset!
Outstanding service! Amazing food. Big thanks to Chef Gage for an amazing dinner!
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.
Perfect place private celebration and dates, the ambiance is so amazing I love the garden and ocean view while dining with my friend
Arrived after the sunset crowd left. Perfect timing. Beautiful setting and nice, quiet table. Good service. Good food. Helpful, knowledgeable wait staff. Good time!
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.
Nice location there was live entertainment which added a nice touch. Service and food was outstanding
Truly made our anniversary
An awesome setting in Hawaii. We will go back again on our next trip!
Amazing view, amazing food, amazing service 😋
The ambiance can not get better than this... beach front dining with impeccable service watching the sunset!
Highly recommend making this a go to for good food, excellent service, live instrumentation and breathtaking views!
We always enjoy Brown's. We especially enjoy the service that we get with Christian.
Good service. Subpar app and entrees (tuna and king crab kampachi). Excellent desert (Oreo mud pie).
Food was over priced and average at best Service was the best part of the evening. There are better options on the Island
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.
Fantastic view, eating outside on the lawn overlooking lagoon. Duck and Kona lobster entrees both excellent
Very expensive for what you get. The food has too much going on. Remove one ingredient. The service is bad. Not horrible but bad. View is nice. The singer was fight the music from another venue. Over load on senses. It you basic hotel restaurant any expect that and you will be fine
One of the best dining experiences on the Big Island. Highly recommended.
Beautiful views and the drinks were great. The food wasn’t the best but the desert was really good ( coconut creme brulee!!!)
Best meal on any island. Not enough superlatives available to use
.The setting is beautiful and the food was unique and exceptional.
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!!
It was a memorable 35th Anniversary. The waitress was exceptional and the overall service was impeccable. The food was outstanding and very flavorful.
The restaurants location was romantic and the sunset was beautiful.
Excellent ambience until private party across the way started their music and over powered the beautiful guitar soloist -totally changed the mood 😞
One of the best dinners I have ever had. Amazing views, food and service.
Great for a sunset dinner. Nice guitar player. Wait staff excellent. Fabulous food.
Amazing food, impeccable service and beautiful sunset spot! This is a MUST for dinner on every visit to Hawaii.
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!
