The service was slow.They brought our dinner to the table before the salads.
It took 2 hours from appetizers to dessert because of the slow service.
The food was good though.

We enjoyed our dinner which was the first one we had at a restaurant since the Covid 19 restrictions were lifted. The wait staff and hostess were excellent. The food that we had was delicious.

We were given a QR code to access the menu and with overcoming a little confusion we were able to get access to the menu over our cell phones. We noticed the selections were limited but still varied enough to address most tastes.

Our only real concern was the lax attitude of some of the other customers dining and drinking at the restaurant in regards to social distancing and other safety anti-Covid 19 practices. We noticed patrons sitting at the bar in close proximity to each other without practicing protective measures. The most serious concern we had was when we observed the musician go over to the table next to ours and start hugging and shaking hands with the entire group at the table. The restaurant staff and management has made an effort to comply with health restrictions but didn't seem to monitor what was happening at guest tables.

Super delicious. Definitely, order the Monchong fish with the macadamia nut herbed crust. I live here on Kauai and this is my favorite dish, on the island. Make room for the spectacular Hula Pie. You can’t go wrong. I promise.
With the impeccable view and scrumptious food and wine......this is truly the best!

Disappointing, I can understand cancelling salad bar.but quality of meal is suffering. Cesar salad was warm and tasteless. Rice was not much better. Four stocks of asparagus still had butt end . Bright side fish components were cooked perfectly. Chicken main was not very good.
These are extraordinary times so a great deal of slack is required . Staff service was good..

Great night with 3 new Duke’s customers. Portions appear smaller since last trip to Kauai. Service team was great. Music shutdown on a Tuesday night at 6 pm? Very good singer was missed later in evening.

We came here for my wedding reception in March 2020. I am a long time resident of Kauai and I knew that they would be the place to go to spend my special day and I was not wrong they were absolutely just over the top for me . I’ve been coming to Duke’s for 15 to 2o years and every time I go it is just wonderful I would highly recommend it for casual dining or a special occasion.

Awesome place to go for any occasion. Frank was exceptional and the tropical itch was one of the best drinks I have ever had. Always on point. Don’t valet, there is plenty of parking if you just look for it.

Had a wonderful dinner with friends and really enjoyed it. The view is amazing, of course. Our server, Chelsea, was bubbly and attentive and really added to the evening's enjoyment. We started with sharing the coconut shrimp and the crab cakes. Two folks had the braised seafood, also one had ono and I had the prime rib. Everyone cleaned their plate! That says it all. Highly successful evening!

The staff was wonderful. Unfortunately the food was not very good. It is definitely chain food and not fresh made. There are so many choices I would recommend going elsewhere.
