Ate there twice over four days and had outstanding food and service both times. Christian and Bruce were both excellent. The ambiance at sunset cannot be beaten. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Seated immediately, great service, great drinks and food, amazing sunset views!
Excellent food and exquisite service. You have to sit in Christian's section on the lanai. He is truly outstanding!
We dine at Brown's Beach House whenever we're on the Big Island, and we've never been disappointed. Last night our server was particularly good: friendly, attentive, responsive. I had to send my fish back because it had chili oil on it, and he was deeply apologetic and made sure the replacement was rushed out asap. And it was. And it was delicious. My husband loved his seared tuna. We also love the abalone appetizer - sustainably farmed right down the road in Kona. It's wonderful to be able to spend time in a restaurant where we don't have to shout at each other to be heard. You can't beat the waterfront location - bring a sweater or light wrap in case the breeze comes up. Wonderful!
It was delicious as it always is . We love dining at Brown’s . A beautiful setting .
Our server Cliff was great. The food of filet mignon and eggplant were delicious as well as the Macadamia nut Mac and cheese. They treated us very well on our anniversary dinner. Great restaurant
Food was very ordinary for the price and inconsistent quality. We eat out a lot and rarely have a bad experience. I was unable to eat my entree as it tasted terrible and they seemed rather unperturbed by this. This restaurant trades off the fact it is in the Fairmont Hotel and not on returning customers therefore the quality of the food is not what you would expect for the price. Location you can do a lot better also, as we were crammed up against another table and a lady from the table behind us was sitting in between us.
Overall very bad experience.
Both our soups were served at room temperature and my main course was barely warm. Restaurant reheated my main course and did not charge for either. Would have preferred to eat with everyone else. Food quality was good but not memorable.
Always great food and service!
Beautiful setting, great sunset and great food. The live entertainment made for a perfect dinner and night out. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for the perfect end to a day on the Big Island.
This was the poorest meal we have had so far on the Big Island. We have been to 5 other restaurants that were far better!
Lovely evening dining outdoors
Pleasant live background music enhanced the ambience
Brown’s Beach House is phenomenal!! The ambiance was fantastic with all outdoor seating. Watching the sunset and listening to the live acoustic guitar player was memorable. We were hosting a party of 12 and the service was very good and attentive. The food was superb. Make sure to leave room for dessert - delectable!!!
Great food and service but was a very windy evening which made it a bit unpleasant
Incredible food service location ambience etc. We love Canoe House at Mauna Lani and this is over the top on the north coast.
Spectacular food, service and ambiance. Had it all plus excellent entainment.
Beautiful location. Great service. Food was good.
Great food! Wonderful service! We are from Pittsburgh, Pa. staying at the Four Seasons! Our 3 year old broke into tears that he didn’t want to leave this hotel and it was so pretty! We had to drag him out!
Very relaxed , chill atmosphere.
And lovedour waitress Ann! And the rest of the staff! Super quick service too! For little Ones! We have a 3YO and a 5MO! Easy breezy!
It’s the best the island has to offer, the BEST SUNSET‼️
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.
Amazing setting, handcrafted cocktails were delicious. Outstanding service, and delicious spot on food preparation!! What more could I have asked for?? Nothing, cud is to the entire culinary team
