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.

Please note, we are currently closed on Sundays.

Still the most amazing. Mark, who was our server also was our server in April, is the best. Already have our reservations for October and will definitely ask for Mark again as our server

Food was wonderful, unfortunately our friends had to leave Hawaii a day earlier and when I called to change the number in the party, whoever answered made me feel bad. It’s not like I planned on our friends leaving. Cheryl Lunt

Only 3 things to report:
Nothing complimentary.was offered for our 43rd wedding anniversary which was disappointing for a high end establishment.
The bread needs to be changed back to French bread to accompany the divine French fare served here.
Our glass table top was full of fingerprints and the silverware is tarnished and should be replaced.
Aside from this our waiter was excellent, the food was delicious and plated lovely. The interior is quaint and the music played is very romantic.

I really was looking forward to eating here, but I left unimpressed. If it were any one thing, I could brush it off, but we had several issues:
-Difficulty getting menus (and the online menu was outdated)
-Inattentive service- especially seeming disinterested when we skipped cocktails and appetizers
-No napkins given ?!?
-Small portions
-Overcooked lamb

Based on the service and poor value for the money, I would not go back.

The ambiance and the service was awesome! The food and wine was good. It was for sure over priced.

$24 for a spinach salad and scallops. Seems normal until you realize you only get two scallops…

But luckily, the service and the outside seating made it worth it in the end!

Wonderful restaurant. French onion soup was delicious, as was our entrees and dessert. We each had a glass of champagne, ($19 each), and it was the best champagne I have ever had! Service was on point, parking was easy, ambiance was great. I would definitely recommend it.

The food was fantastic. Everything was delicious. Our server was excellent as well. We did get a chuckle when we found that the chef/owner was not willing to serve us a second fois gras after we found it so delicious. Apparently, he was also complaining about too many patrons ordering both that and the rack of lamb so early in the evening. We will definitely eat here the next time we are in Maui.

We enjoyed our meal on the outdoor patio. It was very pleasant and comfortable. We had the fish special which was delicious. For dessert we ordered the ice cream—coffee and chocolate with carmel and chocolate sauces with macadamia nuts and whipped cream. We asked to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream too. We will return with our next trip.

We have enjoyed Gerard's each time we had been there before. This time was good, but not up to past experiences. Likely due to Covid conditions. We were seated and then didn't see a waiter for 15 minutes before having to go ask someone to come take drink orders. Also, many menu items weren't available. Otherwise, what we did order was well prepared and after initial delay, the service was great. We look forward to coming back when staffing and supply lines are back to 100%.

We have visited about all of the really good restaurants on Maui over the years but for some reason this one never got in the radar. It sure is now! The food here is outstanding, French in nature, the service from our server Ayla was terrific, and extremely helpful as we were wanting extra information on the dishes. My wife said her scallop dinner was her best dinner ever, and we have been to Merrimans, Mamas, Kimos etc. we also agree the chocolate coffee dessert and the coconut sorbet were among the best desserts we have had. So, suggest getting this one in your radar!

Made reservations for a birthday dinner. As usual, they came through with a candle and all during the dessert. Service was superb and the food was perfectly cooked and presented. The taste of all the dishes was the best.

We are enjoyed our food, delicious and the right amount and the whole experience. From the bread to the salad to the main course, it was all perfect. We were expected and seated right away in a perfect spot which is supposed to be with the perks of reserving early. We will definitely come back.
Kuddos to our server Mark. He worked hard, took his time to chat with us and checking us. Thank you.

We have dined here many times and usually had the chef’s tasting menu paired with wine...It was not available this time so we made our own and Mark, our waiter helped us with wine pairings. We had a delightful evening!

Great food. The owner was in my opinion fairly rude not to allow me to open a special occasion wine. I offered to pay any corkage fee. Why folks can’t chill on the wine issue is a mystery to me.

We’ve been to Gerard’s in the past and always considered it a chic experience almost like visiting my Family in France. Perfect place for a romantic meal or special occasion.
We were seated in the garden area very nice but disappointed at the lack of a table covering or cloth napkin. At almost a $300 bill I would think an appropriate cloth not paper napkins should be provided along with a cloth tablecloth. I understand that during Covid they are trying to cut corners but this just tacky!
The menu was also very limited . Some of what was listed on the menu again we were informed was not available.
The appetizers , entrees and desserts we chose were wonderful!
Our female waiter was the best!!
I highly recommend Gerard’s for a special evening perhaps after this pandemic snd they are back to normal!!

We sat outside for dinner on a perfect evening. We were disappointed that they didn't have the snapper, usually on the menu, but the chef's fish preparation of mahi was delicious. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the sea scallop entree. Not inexpensive, but worth it!

Gerards is a must visit for a really great dining experience. The dedication from the whole staff to bring you that experience is second to none on the island. There’s a great selection on the menu and the catch of the day is always a winner and something you won’t regret. Book in advance

Disappointed! We had higher expectations for this restaurant. We were seated outside in a corner table next to the wheelchair lift. Not a good table for anyone. The wait staff was wonderful and very attentive. The food was mediocre, especially at their prices. We are from Dallas and know great food. This was not worth the $300 tab for 3 people, only one of which was drinking wine.
