Another outstanding dining experience- a place we always look forward to going to when on Maui. Service very attentive, menu innovative. The shittaki mushroom puff pastry, rack of lamb, fish choice never disappoint. Wine list satisfies all tastes

We had a perfect evening at Gerard's celebrating my birthday. The food was superb, and me and my two companions were beyond pleased. The escargot and uku were delicious. Colin was our server and he, along with Burt and Sarah, made the night so much more special. Colin added subtle little touches for the occasion that made a big impression, and was justthe sweetest. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back.

We enjoy dining at Gerard’s each visit to Hawaii. We enjoy the outdoor dining. I enjoy the fresh fish selections. This visit my husband chose the pork entree but he too, not a seafood lover, often goes with a mild fish selection. Good wine and dessert choices too. Always wonderful service.

This is our second time to Gerard’s. Both times have been enjoyable and the food has been great. The service on the second occasion was great, but not as over the top as the first time we went last year. Still very worth the trip and evening at this fine restaurant. It is definitely a nice break from all the other fare that you find on the island. Price is spendy, and wine list is on point with the type of restaurant. Service could better at recommending wine or drinks to compliment meals and the option to book the patio when booking a reservation would be nice. For the $300 we spent for dinner, I don’t feel like the service matched the expected gratuity. Still a nice place to eat and food was still excellent!

While vacationing in Maui, we finally decided to try Gerard’s. It was a fabulous, as was our waiter. We we’re seated outside on the front porch, so enjoyed being in the warm Hawaiian air. I did the ahi with taro chips for a starter and hubby had the pasta with shrimp. We both raved!! Dinner was fresh caught fish... perfect cooked and prepared. Finished with French pressed coffee. A delightful place and evening.

We absolutely love Gerard’s. In fact, we stayed at the Plantation Inn because of this restaurant. In a town when restaurants come on and go, Gerard has Been in the same location for over thirty years. Excellent food, fabulous service, and a charming location. Our favorite restaurant in Maui. Thank you guys for a great evening.

Our experience was disappointing. The entrees were not creative, just average preparation.
We were guests at The Plantation Inn, and expected that the breakfasts, provided by Gerard's, would be good. They were quite poor.....just reheated eggs, stale granola. Very disappointing for a place that calls itself a bed and breakfast!

We returned for another great meal. Starting with the fresh ahi tartar with homemade taro chips. Basically the ahi melts in your mouth. Followed by the seared foie gras on a French toast like crouton surrounded by champagne grapes and macadamia nuts. Hello! Finally, classic shell-less escargot. Gerard's allows you to bring in outside wine with a $35 corkage fee that can save you money if you have expensive taste. Perfect location on the front porch to savor the meal. Gracious service. You should not miss it.

We had very high hopes for Gerard's based on reviews we had read. However, the reality was a bit disappointing, to say the least. We began with the cold cucumber soup with surfing goat cheese, which my dining partner had ordered. She was not thrilled with it (she did not care for the tomato sorbet) although I thought it was the best thing I ate all night. I ordered the Gerard's salad with hearts of palm which was not a good salad. Flavor was bland at best and the ingredients did not seem to mesh. I ate practically none of it, but the server never asked if anything was wrong despite seeing I had not eaten any of it and, of course, I was charged for it. At most fine restaurants, the server would have asked if anything was the matter and tried to make it right. That did not happen here.

Both of us ordered the fresh fish of the day which was pan seared monchong with a spinach accompaniment. The spinach was great, but both of us agreed that the fish was flavorless.

We both agreed that whatever ratings Gerard's has achieved in the past were undeserved based on our experience with both the food and the service. Given the relatively high prices charged, we would be unlikely to ever return.

This was out 4th time dining at Gerard's for my birthday and was also out worst. The food was very good, my better half had the lamb chops and I had the Mahi Mahi special. What was awkward was that we believe that we were seated at another couples table who requested it specifically. We both had reservations, but maybe they got us confused. When first seated we asked for some ice water first, but our cocktails arrived prior to the water. Unfortunately there was also an unhappy child screaming across the room at another family table. We can understand how this can happen, but we had three different servers, one seated us, one explained the specials except for the veal chop that was explained to another table and the third came and took our order and wanted to know if we knew about the specials. Anyway food was good, service seemed very disorganized, and the restaurant wasn't that crowded, less than the previous times. So not sure that we'll go back.

Our third time. Service, ambiance, decor and most importantly food was absolutely outstanding. Obvious also that Gerard takes much pride in presentation. Just beautiful and appetizing. Escargots presented a little differently but delicious. And oh that garlic sauce. The reduction on the scallops was delightful if just a little on the salty side. ( but I would have it again). Fish special was a Snapper style light fish absolutely most delicious. All in all a special treat. We are in Lahaina for two weeks and will in all probability be back

Gerard's is on a very short list of "go to" restaurants on Maui for special dining. We live on Maui, know the options, and always come away pleased. The food is exceptional in its preparation and presentation. Unique. The service was exceptional, even better than the norm for Gerards - very engaging staff from check in through "good-byes" by all; no pretentiousness; not showmanship - just knowledgeable, attentive, sincere wait staff. The veranda is a beautiful, restful and quiet location for dining by Lahaina (or Kaanapali, or Wailea) standards. Not cheap (but not nearly as pricey as many of the best restaurants elsewhere on island. Highly recommended - try the cucumber soup with goat cheese and tomato sorbet, the baked snapper (opakapaka seems to be available at Gerard's when it is hit and miss elsewhere), and literally any of the desserts, all of which are quite good.

We were here over 20 years ago and wanted to try it again on our visit to Maui. Food was excellent. We both had fish and split a sorrel dumpling appetizer. That was so good I wanted to lick the plate. But since my mother would be horrified if she heard about it, good manners prevailed.
