A gorgeous setting for a terrific meal. We were very impressed with every aspect of our meal, including the setting, service and food. Prices are high but not unexpected given the location and attachment to a Fairmont resort. Highly recommended.
My husband and I were very satisfied, starting from the beginning till the end of our dining experience. I ordered the kampachi with sweet purple potatoes and it was really good. My hubby had Mahi-mahi and he loved it. Since we’re celebrating our anniversary they gave us a complimentary dessert. Their service was extremely exceptional. The ambiance was just perfect and amazing views.
A perfect beachfront location and views of the surf, sand, cove and ocean as far as you can see. The tables are well spaced so no issues of noise esp if you sit outside. The service was fast and very friendly. The menu is extensive with surf or land dishes and a broad wine by the glass or bottle. We could not have had a greater dinner and evening experience for a hotel- based location.
Wonderful experience. The setting is beautiful and the food was fantastic. We felt pampered and it was pricy but well worth it.
Our best dinner yet on the big island
Browns is at the Fairmont Orchid where we are staying.....it is located right on the lawn, beachfront. Perfect setting.
The food was excellent.... as was the wait staff. Varied menu offerings between meat and fish....plenty to choose from....
We would definitely eat here again...
Christian our Server was amazing, as was our whole menu selection. Definitely will be back again !
Very nice dinner.
Came here twice about a year ago and the experience was great. Tonight was pretty bad. Horrible seat, fish tasted like it was three days old, lobster was cold, creme brûlée had good flavor but not prepared well. Wine was different vintage than on the menu, hostess and waitress were both rude and inconvenienced by us.
Lovely hotel - best part of evening was cocktails overlooking ocean with guitar serenade in background. Restaurant is located next to beach with requisite ocean ambiance. Dinners were good, but nothing noteworthy. Service attentive. Price reflects hotel and location i. e. high.
Our second time back after 4 years....still EXCELLENT. Dining on the beach with Hawaiian music at sunset...what more do you need? All dishes and service were excellent. Our bus boy was the same gentleman we had 4 years ago...been there 18 years. Long term staff usually attests to quality at a restaurant.
We were hesitant based on the hit or miss nature of many of the reviews but everything about our experience was first rate. Food was excellent and the service matched-- the pace was sympathetic to our wanting to linger and the dessert touch that acknowledged our anniversary was really nice. Our endorsement is unqualified.
Best fine dining establishment on the Big Island... great food... great service...and what views! A must stop when visiting the Big Island?
Fantastic outdoor location with high-end food and exceptional service. Price was a little steep, but it’s the Fairmont hotel!
Great food and great service. One thing that was disturbing was watching one of the workers drag a large bag of trash through the dining room while people were eating! Need to find another way to do that or just wait until the restaurant is closed. Not very appetizing!
Wonderful food and great service! Musical entertainment provided a nice background for a beautiful sunset. Would go again!
This felt like hotel dining and we liked Merriman's much better.
The setting outside with ocean views was great. The service was also very good.
The food is where it fell short, it looked the part in presentation like so many hotel restaurants do but did not deliver in flavor profile or execution. The seared ono appetizer was was great quality fish but it was under seasoned and did not have much flavor B. The poke appetizer had a beautiful presentation with three accoutrements to add but they were just for show and did not make sense, who needs to add pink salt to an already salty dish? The poke itself was not exciting and could not be helped by what they offered to add B. The Mac and cheese was over cooked making the dish mushy and the cheese sauce lacked flavor D. The crab crusted Kampachi had good quality well prepared fish but the crab had no flavor and the mushrooms and asparagus were over powered with some sort of grey mush that tasted like pureed black beans(I tried to go back and see what it actually was but their menu online is not current)
The chef needs to go beyond coming up with dishes that look and sound good and actually taste them and tweak them until they are perfected.
Our waiter Christian, was a delight! The food was very good across the board and it was a lovely location. Can’t wait to go back!!
Very romantic dinner with my husband with live music and a gorgeous sky.
