The dining area is big/open/spacious - but the buffet area is tiny is comparison to the amount of people. There are long line-ups to wait to get your food which our group of 20 found annoying. They keep the drinks flowing, and your tables clear if you continuously get up for more. The food is good, but not the best buffet I’ve ever had. I had higher expectations for the crab cakes eggs benny. It tasted really fishy 🙁
The lobster macaroni & cheese was the biggest hit at our table.

The views are beautiful, the landscape and the hotel are beautiful... the hotel cleanliness is sub par. The stairs leading down to the dinning area had spilled drinks that had dried over a 4 day period

Best View, Great Food. The only thing I wish different was that the dessert section was on a completely different side from rest of the buffet and I wish the server would have pointed that out in the beginning. I almost didn’t get to experience dessert because of it.

Visited for Sunday Brunch. The Grand Dining Room opens directly on to the Ocean and has a beautiful breeze blowing through. Lots of selection including seafood (huge shrimp), omelette station, a small selection of dim sum, salads, fresh fruit, carving station (beef and pork) and great selection of small desserts. There are also endless Mimosas and Bloody Marys.

Cost is $65 US pp for the Sunday Brunch. We enjoyed our visit, the service was great. Our Server Zaldy was friendly and always available for anything we needed.

The Grand Wailea is always on our “Must Do” list while visiting Maui. This trip was no exception. Went for breakfast and had a wonderful experience from the food to the service and of course the fabulous view!! Please make sure to leave time to walk the gorgeous grounds!

We’ve been to this brunch several times...probably 4-5. Our server was awesome, however, the quality of foods was definitely down and noticeably by everyone in our group. No Sashimi, less quality pastries, prime rib was not as good as it’s been. Overall, still a fun time...just didn’t feel the value stood up to our past brunches.

Selection and variety for brunch was excellent. Would have like potstickers, May have missed the mashed potatoes and gravy to go with excellent prime rib. Overall. Excellent. Will be back next year for Sunday brunch.

The hostesses seated two parties ahead of me who arrived after me. The first group had a member with a walker, which is understandable. The second group was large, and I assume they were seated ahead of me for that reason even though the entire party was not present. I also think they received preferential treatment because they were staying at the resort. Was the first group also staying at the resort, and is that why they were seated ahead of me?
The wait staff was great. They were friendly and very attentive.

We were very disappointed overall with Sunday brunch and expected more from The Grand Wailea. Service was great however, the actual food selection and quality were lacking. The omelette was so thick that when folding it over it split in half. My slice of prime rib was actually just a pile of pieces. They did not offer waffles or pancakes of any kind. I know that the hotel cannot control the birds but I was literally pooped on and at one point when returning from the buffet our table was covered with them.

This is our second time in a group for the Grand Wailea Sunday Brunch. We loved it tge first time, and continue to sing it's praises. The omlet bar was very fast, friendly, wonderful local ingredients- and such variery. If you can think of something not on the buffet, you can ask for it. One person at our table was asking about having either pancakes or waffles, and our server brought a generous serving of both for the tsble to share. The prime rib and roast pirk were perfectly cooked, and lean. There were two versions of poke, and both were tasty. Fresh fruits, a great variety of savory and sweet breads, papaya chicken soup, and the regular breakfast (eggs benedict) were all very good.

Attended Sunday Brunch this past Sunday. Things were nice and the service was very friendly, but it didn't seem to be any different than their normal morning breakfast buffet. The only difference that I saw was the live music and a carving station.

The ambiance and the interior of the Grand Dining were good, the bruch menu was moderate, but it was so disgusting to see the flies hovering around the food and the serving plates. Witnessing that just ruined everything. Big shame on the fame of the Waldorf Grand Wailea for its filthy surroundings for the brunch. Very disappointed. They need a serious control of it.

The layout of the food leads to long lines and wasted time. My party of 6 spent more time in lines than eating. The layout should be completely changed to facilitate taking of food without getting in lines. Makena Beach and Golf Resort's Sunday brunch was laid out such that lines rarely developed except for a few waiting for omelets. It can be done. If we come back it will be much later when fewer are seeking food.

We were a family of 11 that came to the Sunday brunch.

The food was very good. But the way the buffet was set up was awful. One very small area with all the food items and lines that took 15-20 minutes to get thru. By the time you got thru the line, your food was cold! (I would have rated the food a 5 if I could have enjoyed it hot). Also, we always had to ask for drinks/refills.

Obviously the 11:00 hour is the very busiest. By 12:15-12:30 the place was nearly empty. I would have been much happier if they had suggested a later reservation.

It would be good if they offered fruits also. The food was good except that they were not hot for hot items. The fried fish was not crisp or hot. I would prefer my food piping hot, not cold or lukewarm.

I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a great Sunday brunch with family and friends. The price is great for the local people and even more affordable for the tourists. Donna who was our server was exceptional in making sure all our needs was met. I would go back for the quality of the food and the desserts are phenomenal.

Big disappoint. Very little fresh fruit in Hawaii??? Little tiny bowls of 2-3 fruits. We were there at 11:30 and by noon several dishes we running out with replacements slow. Little skinning crab legs and only a few fish dishes. Very over priced for what it was. Won't recommend it to anyone

Ok our reservation was for 130 the food was cold, no replenishment , it was as if you said ok we don't care if you made a reservation for the last part take what's left and like it. I am not saying the food was horrible, it was just the fact that everything was cold and not fresh.
Our waitor and your staff was excellent. We paid $50 a head for cold food, not acceptable. Would I recommend the brunch again at this time .no!!! It's like we were getting left overs and paid the same price as everyone else. Totally not acceptable.
