Parking is limited but there is complementary valet. Service was good. Food was good. I recommend the cocconut shrimp and the fish tacos. There was live music making it hard to have a conversation. I liked the open air setting accompanied by a view of the pool and mountains.

Would definitely recommend Happy Talk for a great place for a drink and sunset view. There's music every night but noise level drowns it out. Food was just so-so. Beautiful surroundings.

A fun place to go. Wonderful atmosphere... Excellent music with a beautiful setting. Only issue was the waitress could have been more attentive. Overall it was a great experience.

This restaurant offers the most spectacular view imaginable! It’s a perfect spot for sunset dining. The ambience is pure fun- there is live music to add to the festivities! We loved it here!

Restaurant was lively and service good. However the food was only so so and although we had reservations for a view, we were seated next to the stage. The live music was deafening and not really that great, making it an uncomfortable dinner. I couldn't wait to get out of there.

Celebrating a special occasion is always fun but when you have a bad server, it does not make the occasion a nice one.

Food was good although the fish tacos had so little fish in them that me and another person thought that they forgot to put any fish in the tacos. Music was good as well as the atmosphere

Phenomenal view, Falling Down Romance’s music is fantastic, excellent service, never felt like they wanted to move us out so they could seat the next group. One of our favorite places on Kauai.

Everything, including a breathtaking view, was wonderful.
The only complaint I and my friends had was the distracting televisions overhead. They took away from the natural beauty and cozy atmosphere. No one was watching them.

We showed up on time and asked for our table but we got an email from OpenTable saying that we didn’t show up to our reservation, please correct this as we did fulfill our reservation.

Beautiful view. Excellent resort setting. Lots of people at Happy hour. Service was excellent, food was okay. Cocktails were tasty but expensive. B+, at best. Unless you're staying in Princeville you should skip it.

Lovely venue. Beautiful view. Amazing talent norman singing and playing the guitar is always a favorite. Food was less than expected. Served hastily, and with out the attention to detail that we would expect from such an amazing property. Drinks were weak and lacked flavor. Price was expensive however we would not have minded it food and drink had been adequate.

We had an amazing time at Happy Talk. We had a beautiful table next to the water feature. The live music was absolutely fantastic. The food was wonderful. The server was attentive, fun and overall outstanding. We had such a great time, we tried to go again while in Princeville. Unfortunately, they were booked. If you get a chance to go to Happy Talk, please take advantage. The atmosphere is casual, and so relaxing. Perfect for a vacation experience.

This review comes from a person who has worked in the restaurant industry. They were clearly understaffed in the kitchen. Our BBQ pork sliders took over 30 minutes but the 2nd appetizer we ordered arrived before it. When our food finally arrived, over an hour after ordering, they told us they were out of fish for the fish and chips one person ordered; which is completely unacceptable. We ordered 5 different entrees and all of them were just mediocre. The best things we ate were the appetizers.
