A friend of ours highly recommended this place to eat and we had a great overall experience. We took some friends of ours here and our waiter Christopher was wonderful. We eat at a lot of restaurants and hadn't had such great service like he gave us in a long time. The food quality and timing of the food being served was perfect. I highly recommend this place!

This restaurant has character. Out of the way but worth the drive. We went on our last night on Maui on the way to the airport. It was quite windy and cool so glad we had a light sweater to put on. The restaurant is bright and airy. My guess is that most of the guests were locals. There was a good buzz going on a Sunday night at 6 p.m. Patty had Popcorn shrimp and a crab pizza. Both were very good. I had the seafood curry. The portion was large with shrimp, scallops and mahi mahi. The sauce was a bit thick but overall quite tasty. Our waiter was pleasant and took good care of us.

Had early reservation at 5:15. Showed up and front part of restaurant was about 1/3 filled but they put the two of us in back of restaurant by ourselves. We assumed incorrectly that the tables in the front half were spoken for. We have a decent meal in the back by ourselves the whole meal. When we left the front half was half empty. My date asked the manager why we were placed in the back room by ourselves while the front was open. Instead of apologizing he said “all you had to do was tell us and we would have moved you”. The front space is open and lively the back room much darker and empty. We will not go back.

With a booked reservation our party of 4 was seated literally right inside the front door. Table not approached for 15 minutes. Several nearby tables were seated after us and were served before us. Waiter was totally inattentive. Food was great, but would probably not drive the hour from Kannapali again as the overall experience was poor.

We were so excited for my birthday dinner at Bev Gannon’s Hailiimaile General Store restaurant. Walking in we liked the vibe and the decor and our waiter who could not have more welcoming. We have been going to Maui for over 20 years and have our favorite places to eat. This will not be one of them. There were some good points such as our fish main courses. My husband liked his macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi and I loved my Indian flavored salmon. However, our appetizers were a big disappointment , the popcorn shrimp were dry and chewie. My Caesar salad was sweet and a bit strange. The biggest disappointment was the desserts. Cup of love chocolate was dry and totally disappointing as was my husbands upside down pineapple cake. So sorry to say this!!

We’ve dined here many times and this was a last minute substitute for another restaurant we weren’t comfortable with. OMG, another outstanding meal. Try the Scorpion Shrimp, don’t let the name scare you or the thought of Sambuca in a sauce. Hands down this was the most flavorful shrimp pasta dish I’ve ever tasted. The sauce, while clear is simply yummy, due to all those ingredients which might initially cause one to pause. How can a clear sauce have so much layered flavors? My husband had ribs, always mouthwatering. Try the bubbly Hibiscus cocktail made with local Lokelani wine from Maui Wine. It was so good we went up to the Winery the following day. Yum, yum, yum, Haiimaile is great food you can count into tickle your tastebuds.

We Had a reservation at 7:45 when we got there the table was NOT set up. It was my sons birthday and I told the girl that when I made the reservation. She said she would mark it down. Nothing was ever said about my sons birthday, no birthday wishes NOTHING! Then when they boxed up our food they didn't mark whose was whos. Two of us had the curry and I wasn't sure which left over was mine. All in all the food was good but I was disappointed in the service!!!!

I rated the noise level as "Do not recall" only because, interestingly, you did not offer "deafening." Deafening and conversation-inhibiting does not equate with "energetic."
When you order salmon, you do not expect it to be doused in a cloyingly sweet sauce.
The blackened ahi promised a crisp outside but it was sort of brownish and soggy. The interior was appropriately rare but cold. It was a shame because it seemed a nice cut of fish. It was also served, weirdly, on the mashed potatoes--the same as the rack of lamb.
The cocktails and dessert were okay.
The service seemed as cold as the tuna and inattentive. I had to flag down someone for a coffee refill, and then the person filled only my cup, without even glancing at my companion's empty cup.
This was our "special Maui dinner," designed to celebrate my son-in-law's birthday. At any price it would have been disappointing. At what we paid, well north of $400 for 4, it was outrageous.

The lamb was truly outstanding, but equally important was the staff. Our rental car had a mechanical issue on the way to dinner which led to a stressful wait for the tow truck. They helped me charge my dead cell phone and let us hang out in a good spot to wait for the tow truck, offering us drinks as we waited. I would love to go back.

I’m such a fan of this restaurant and have eaten here well over 30 times. My favorite dish... which I order every time... is the sashimi Napoleon. This time the kitchen left off the green oil drizzle (basil or perhaps arugula oil) that is always drizzled on the plate underneath the sashimi
Napoleon. They were either out of it or someone forgot but it made a difference. My husband got the steamed fresh catch which that night was mongchong, one of our favorite fish that we have eaten countless times. Instead of a white lovely piece of mongchong his fish was dark brown and red all inside... the way his piece was filleted they didn’t cut away from the bloodline. Just really disappointing from a restaurant of this caliber.

Service, drinks, onion soup and ambience were excellent as always but this meal experience let us down
