My experience at cane & canoe was very disappointing. For a high end restaurant, they do not know how to cook a filet. It took 5 times for my filet to come back medium. I got very annoyed that I had to keep sending my steak back. First two times came out well done, then the next two times it came out rare. Will not be going back there.

The food was good. I did expect better based on the price point. My wife and I do fine dining regularly. Our biggest disappointment was that there was a large party with a table of kids that were loud and inconsiderate. The parents weren’t all that better. After dinner, they left the table but hung around in the dining room and we’re very very noisy. It would have been nice if the restaurant would have asked them to move out of the dining room. All in all good but could’ve been better.

Went after golf tournament at Kapalua. Made a last minute reservation and got seated immediately and cheerfully. Steak & lobster tail were excellent. Prawns and scallops nicely prepared. Attentive service. They accommodated families while we were there. A bit over priced but not enough to break your bank.

For $120 pp the food was wonderful, the service, however was not. We sat with dirty dishes on our table for way too long and when I asked someone to remove them she looked at me as if I was insulting her. We have eaten at this restaurant several times before and the service was always wonderful. If they want to charge this much, the experience had to be more well-rounded with excellent food (which is was) and impeccable service (which it was not).

Ambiance and service were fantastic. Overall food was good but typical for this level of cuisine. Sadly, this was one of our favorite restaurants to celebrate but there was not any signature items on the menu that expressed creativity from the chef. To me, a great restaurant will experiment and demonstrate something unique about themselves that make you want to return again and again to see the artists perform their craft and create a delightful and unique experience

Lindsey was so helpful as were all the other staff members. We felt welcomed and taken care of, even though we were not staying at the resort. Food was fantastic and while not inexpensive, it was a fair price for the quality and portion. View is spectacular and we were not rushed at all--we had plenty of time to enjoy this experience. We will return for sure--this is our second visit to this restaurant.

Probably, I wouldn't recommend it to a friend. Unless I knew the atmosphere and good service was most important to him/her. The food was good, but the Opakapaka was done in a super recipe, but the fish itself just didn't taste like it used to. I think it was the best they could get, but if I didn't know better (which, actually I don't) I would have sworn it had been frozen. Seems like most white fish don't really take to freezing like, for instance, salmon does. The Montage looks like a really upscale and pricey hotel. The waiter told us the rooms started at $700 or more. Not for us.

Food was amazing. Great wine list as well. The Chef came over to our table . Very classy gesture . The view is ok when compared to most Hawaiian settings . Beautiful restaurant but only a slight ocean view . We would highly recommend this experience based on the quality of the food and staff . Having been to every restaurant imaginable over the past 20 years this new gem is now our favorite on Maui

The food was very good, but the service was off. Plates were not cleared between courses, wine was not poured and the server was inattentive. All issues are easily rectified but for now, the service is not what is expected

We came here on a recommendation of my brother. The location is beautiful. The food was quite good. We did not sit at the bar. I do understand that if you want a great view of the sunset, the bar is the place for it!

Great dining experience at sunset at the Montage Resort. The food and service is top shelf. Very nice wine list. A bit pricey for some perhaps, but a great overall dining experience in a beautiful setting.

Our third time here for our 4th anniversary, once again an awesome experience. Chef’s fish of the moment (Opaka) was a delight. Our server Marc took excellent care of us to make our evening the special occasion that it was - and of course the evening would not have been complete without the continued hydration provided by Makoa. Chef’s desert treat provided a perfect ending for our celebration.

We will be back - thank you Cane and Canoe

Would go again for a drink (creative drink menu) and maybe appetizer in the restaurant. Unfortunately, for the price of dinner, the menu is not very creative, the service plain, friendly but seemed more suited to a diner (they weren't trained in what dishes to remove, etc. among other things), the table setting non-existent, the table ware uninspired, the food just barely ok, the side dish (broccolini) presented in a heap. Overall an unfortunate choice for a high end celebration.

This restaurant has the best service of any we’ve been to. They don’t rush you through your meal and very attentive to our needs. The food is delicious. We shared the goat cheese tempura starter. We both had the special. Can’t recall the Hawaiian name for the fish, but is red snapper. Also absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Cane and Canoe.
