Loud. Noisy. Can’t hear the people at your own table. And they charge for bread and butter.

Excellent Birthday dinner service and relaxed atmosphere. The Pautini (pomegranite & local PAU vodka) was delish.
The Napoleon sushi tower and ribs were both amazing! We live nearby and will absolutely be frequenting for Happy Hour & early dinner! Loved it! We just wish we had gone years ago!

This is our second time here. I had the Caesar salad and the ribs. The Caesar was fresh and tasty as were the ribs. Three others in our group had the Scallopini, but unfortunately the sauce was not very good (too thick) and the veal was not well trimmed, so it had some chewy tendons. My mom had the best dish, the Asian Pear Duck Tostada. It's an appetizer as she was not very hungry. It actually is a good size. We also shared the crab pizza, which no one liked. I'm not sure why it's called "crab" as the crab is undetectable. Two of us had ice cream with a macaroon. (One was free because of a birthday) Two of us shared the "love in a jar." I expected it to be more creamy since it is served in a jar, but it was rather dry. One last comment... we brought our own Champagne since we were celebrating a birthday. Beware, the corkage fee was $45.

The dishes were well prepared, creative, delicious and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed the duck tostada with crispy jicama- lean juicy meat and savory sauce. The ribs were fall off the bone tender and not fatty; sauce was slightly spicy/sweet and heavenly. Hamachi crudo with citrus and avocado, shiso puree was fragrant, bright, extremely fresh. Chris was a charming, very engaging waiter. Lilikoi creme Bruce capped a wonderful meal with friends. We would travel back again from the east coast/NJ/NY in a heartbeat- Mahalo!

Food was very delicious. Portions were about right, I hate it when when restaurants serve huge portions. Drink selection was good, beer selection just ok. Bread was $3 extra and in my opinion should be included with the meal.

Really enjoyed almost all of the Thanksgiving meal. Were disappointed with the advertised pumpkin pie and pecan pie for dessert which were very tiny - two tiny pecan tarts and a little pumpkin pie tart. Need to go traditional here and serve a piece of pie. Other than that, really enjoyed the meal.

We went on Thanksgiving for the buffet and it was excellent. They mixed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with some island favorites like garlic shrimp. The food was excellent and the service was even better. Dale our server was very attentive, friendly, and even took a family picture for us. The price was good, too - about $25 per person cheaper than the hotel buffet's around Maui. I'd love to go back if we ever get back to Maui and try the regular menu.

The location is a bit isolated - not on the beach or in a city. It is near an old pineapple plantation, so you have to go out of your way to get there. It is near the entry to Mt. Haleakala national park and the beginning of the Road to Hana, so it is a great place to go after sunset on the mountain or at the end of a Hana tour.

We chose this restaurant while we were on vacation because it was not in the tourist centers on Maui. The building is historic and interesting. The food was fresh and delicious— a good fusion of local ingredients and Asian flavors.

I also left my credit card there and they tracked me down via Open Table as I had no idea. Very kind of them.

Have had lunch in the past. This meal was dinner. We had a light dinner since we were traveling after dinner. We ordered the sashimi pizza - this was good, though not as good as we remember from our past lunches. The salads were disappointing. The beet and goat cheese salad - the beets didn't have much taste - more like they were out of a can. The HGS green salad was not very good either. Greens were not crisp and too much dressing and the dressing was not distributed throughout the greens. We have always loved the HGS, so are hoping this meal was an anomaly.

We have come here on several occasions--it is unique because of its location and has a local vibe. But my husband and I have to say the food was subpar for the cost-- the macadamia encrusted mahi mahi was overly done and small in portion. My ahi dish was good, but hot in seasoning and I felt I should have been forewarned! I have to say we were disappointed for a Gannon restaurant--and we miss Joe's also! Sorry!

 (Hawaii)·Dined on November 12, 2017

We have gone here annually & enjoy the creative, healthy foods, and interesting art and decor. This rainy evening we arrived at 4:58 PM, ducked inside off the porch for the opening at 5 PM, and were told "Just a couple more minutes". No, "aloha folks, come in and get warm & dry." OK, strict start time, not very Hawaii. Not trying to break your rules. Can we sit down? the wet, chilly senior citizen couple asked. The greeter had to go ask someone. It was 5 by then. Here's an idea: "[smile] Would you like to wait at the bar for 2 minutes while we finish setting up, we'll be right with you? Mahalo!" Maui is getting a bit snobby and pretentious all over these days, and could stand to recover some aloha here & there. We did not know there was now a nice separate menu for vegetarians; fortunately a question we asked led to it being brought to table. Is that printed on the other menu? Food and server were very nice. Just that cold, damp greeting from the greeter that seemed different from prior years' visits.

As usual, excellent food. Wait staff was attentive, just right amount of attention. A little noisy, but that's probably because we're getting older :) My husband is still talking about the veal scallopini that he had - it was the best he's every had. I had the crispy duck, it was meaty, moist, and the skin was crispy - yum.

We went to the distillery for a tour and vodka tasting, then headed to a Happy Hour and dinner. It was well worth the drive. I could have just eaten my meal with the happy hour menu but only went for the meatballs which were great. For dinner, I ate an appetizer. My husband had an appetizer and dinner. Excellent food. Bartender super friendly. Even though we had to leave the beach early, it was worth it.

We always go the the Haile Mailed General Store when we are on Maui. The food is fresh and inventive, with enough creativity for foodies yet even picky eaters will find familiar food. Prices are no higher than any high end place. For two with appetizers, a drink, main courses, bottle of wine and tip we spent 180. Worth every penny. We are headed back tonight for apps and dessert.

The service was great, as were the cocktails (a bit on the pricey side). We had the crab pizza for appetizer (4 slices) which was yummy but a little heavy as an appetizer for 2 , best to only have a slice each so you have room for dinner. My husband ordered the Hawaiian Ahi Noodle Bowl which was super good. I ordered the Coconut Seafood Curry, which while tasty was way too heavy on the coconut and very spicy (which was a surprise and I am used to spicy food ), I had to try and shake off much of the curry as possible to be able to eat it. Overall it was good but a bit pricey. While nothing in Maui is cheap we found a lot of other places not as pricey with equally good food.

Decor is a bit dated bright colors and lots of cob webs on the ceiling (there was a cane spider above my wife!) The service wasn't the greatest, took a while for us to get a couple cocktails, apps, and main dish. They were not busy, so it was unacceptable in that regard. I heard good reviews about the rack of lamb.. had better given the price. My wife had the mahimahi in which nothing special came out of it. Not the ambience for dinner, maybe happy hour or lunch would be more ideal. We were celebrating our Anniversary, probably not the place to celebrate anything special...
