French
French Cuisine with a Hawaiian flair. Established in 1982, as casual place- where Gerard creates his dishes by getting his ingredients only from local fishermans and farmers. A true pioneer in farm to table dinning, long before it became fashionable. In 1987 Gerard moved his restaurant just a half block up Lahainaluna Rd. to the Plantation Inn. He has quietly continued his culinary greatness the only way he knows how, making each dish exactly perfect. Sourcing only fresh caught whole fish directly from local fisherman and fruits/produce from his own garden and others on Maui and Big Island. Gerard’s team of professionals in the front and back of the house execute team service to perfection. A seamless flow in the kitchen continues to the front of the house where dishes are served straight from the oven to the guest. Servers work together to assure every table gets VIP service. Free parking nightly

We have been coming to Maui 40+ years and somehow never connected with Gerard's. The Plantation House is lovely and very unique with tables inside, outside and on the porch. If you love fine dining this is the place for you. We especially appreciated the traditional menus and wine list, not the pared down to one page or QR code menu that is very common right now. The cocktails were spot on and the food delicious; mushrooms in puff pastry, rack of lamb, ahi tartare, and steak frites. The molten chocolate cake in a bowl of ice cream and whipped cream was equally divine. An old school gem, lovely china, linens, service and presentation, a place that could have easily succumbed to the terrible economics of the past year in the restaurant industry. It's now on our permanent list for Maui dining.

This was by far our best meal in Maui, including other well reviewed and highly recommended restaurants. Although not waterfront, the charming decor and attention to detail in the setting made the experience unique. We enjoyed the outdoor veranda seating with tropical foliage surrounding the space. The fresh fish entree was simply heaven. Chef Gerard created a delicious delicate dish with an assortment of subtle flavors to combine as desired. We expected much higher pricing for such a compete fine dining experience. We will certainly bring the family to dine again when we return.

We had the last meals served last year when Gerard’s shut down and really hoped they would survive. Indeed they did. We have eaten at Gerard’s numerous times and consider it one of the best restaurants on Maui. We were able to special order the sweet breads and they were excellent.

This is a real authentic French restaurant with a beautiful Plantation setting outside. Inside appeared to be beautiful as well. The five of us each had great meals ranging from the fish of the day to shrimp pasta to filet mignon, foie gras, French onion soup, and luscious desserts. The food was cooked perfectly even for us foodies. And our server added to the experience. We must’ve sat there for three hours. It was so beautiful and we were having such a good time. We were never rushed, and the waiter amused us with island stories. Prices are high but worth it if you have room in your budget for a special evening.

Always continues to be one of our best culinary experiences when we visit Maui. Fish of the day has the best preparation and is a must to try. The Dusty Rose for dessert is our favorite.

If you’re looking for a memorable location to celebrate a special evening or just a beautiful restaurant setting in an time gone by home with front porch tables as well as intimate tables nestled in the front yard ,then this is the place for you! Not only a beautiful location, but amazing food with French/ Island flair. How can you go wrong ~ service and wait staff were gracious, courteous and knowledgeable!
A must try if willing it pay a little more!

How have we been coming to Lahaina all these years and this was our first time eating at Gerard's? Our dinner was perfect in everyway. We had a lovely table out on the front veranda and were immediately greeted by our server, who managed the perfect dance of being attentive without being overbearing. Our appetizer was the foie gras terrine which came with these delicious sweet onions that took each bite over the top. The cucumber and mint soup included a dollop of a sorbet that added a perfect sweet/salty taste. For our entree, we each had the fresh catch of the day that was prepared with a buerre blanc sauce that I would love to have the recipe for. We ended our dinner with a pineapple tart served with coconut sorbet that warmed the soul. Now that we have discovered this fantastic restaurant, it is now on our must eat at in Lahaina list.

From appetizers to dessert, we had a beyond great experience here. Perfect for a date night or dinner with friends. I felt like I was on vacation for a moment, because it didn’t feel like I was on Maui ☺️ the ambience is beautiful, and different. The staff were super friendly and professional, and the food was great. My husband and I will definitely be going there again.

After many years and visiting all of the classy restaurants on Maui, we come back to Gerard's as the very best!
The wait staff are friendly and knowledgable.
Gerard is usually greeting guests as he supervises his excellent kitchen staff.
Not only is the food delicious, the presentation makes everything so tempting.
We have tried everything on the menu and find that the foie gras and French Onion Soup are our "go-tos".

I’ve dined here some years back and remember it being an excellent experience. Not this time around though.
The waiter was very inexperienced and forgetful. Needed help opening a bottle of wine.
Host was very hospitable.
Food was overall mediocre. Beef burgundy had no soul to it. No flavor. Beef needed to be cut with a knife. It had all of the makings of a rushed dish with zero care for the outcome. Seared foie was excellent. I would to re-order the escargot as I wasn’t a fan of their preparation of it. Chicken cordon blue was very good.

This was our best meal of the week. 1st, it's great to have a break from fish and chips. The food tasted amazing, and we tried many things on the menu. We had a table outdoors on the grass, which was lovely and quiet. The waiter was so friendly and kind- he laughed with the kids and suggested the perfect wine.
