                                Hau Tree Lani is a favorite of local fine dine customers. Relaxed atmosphere , great food and set. Right on the beach there is just no better way to enjoy a meal whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. A we dined on a thanksgiving diner (outside and spaced apart- safety first) we were informed that the restaurant was closing and reopening under new management. French cuisine. I hope they didn’t try to fix something that is not broken. I wish them well. And hopefully they will improve on a already great restaurant.

                                The food wasn’t that great for the price point, the setting is nice though. They only had two wines to choose from and the waiter said it was because they were going through a change in ownership, which may be the case, but either the old or new owner must not be in good with the wine vendors or that wouldn’t happen.

                                This is a great place to view sunset. Valet parking makes it easy, but you can also often find spaces along the road near this venue or across the street at the park. Staff is pleasant and professional, and welcoming. Very good venue for Sunday Brunch!

                                Wonderful food and service! We should have gotten there at 5:30 pm to see the sunset, but our reservation was for 6:00. Right on the beach. Lovely setting and ambiance. Don’t skip the dessert: bananas foster cheesecake.

                                Location is great. Food just average. The natural setting on the beach is beautiful, but the restaurant itself is run down and needs a real good facelift. Probably won’t return.

                                They need to have more menu selections. Their Brunch/Lunch menu has alot of egg dishes and sandwiches. No green salads! And they have removed their BEST item from the menu--the Gazpacho!

                                This is one of the most historic restaurants still open for business. It's ocean front location, relaxing atmosphere, friendly service and food were excellent. Couldn't have asked for more. We are saddened, though, that the restaurant may have a new staff and menu once the new contractor takes over in Dec. Make your reservations for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. It is well worth it!

                                I’ll say “I’ve been there - done it”. Very underimpressed, all the way around. Had reservations for Birthday & Anniversary & table near beach & NONE were acknowleged!! Never checked if food was ok & food was just ok. Way overpriced for what we had & one would expect that here but not impressed! Sorry, was looking forward to brunch here & was disappointed.

                                Recent change in ownership...it shows. Many of the menu items are not available because of this change. Waited 30 minutes between being sat and ordering first items from menu. May be temporary, but operations seem to be in disarray.

                                We wanted to book for 5:30 to watch the sunset but we waited too long and had to take a 6:00 reservation. Sunset was at 5:50 and we got seated early so we didn’t miss it. Spectacular! Great service. I had a Caesar salad and lamb chops. My husband got the duck appetizer and a steak. Everything was really good and the duck was beyond good! Hope the new management doesn’t change the menu.

The staff treated us like royalty. Definitely recommend this amazing dining experience. They even had our favorite Christian music playing.

                                Service was spotty. We were greeted by our server with "here's your water" as he set the glasses on our table. Twice he called us "girls" even though we are seniors. I had to get up and take a menu from an empty table nearby because he didn't check with us if we wanted dessert. I don't think he likes his job! But all in all, I would go back to the Hau Tree Lanai - it is a delightful place to dine!

                                As always the food was marvelous! The outdoor ambience is perfect (especially during these Covid times). The service is a little bit slow, but of course we should be grateful for being able to spend even more time in this wonderful place.

                                Due to covid, the me u was very limited but they had a decent selection. My fiance and I really enjoyed our pupus. The roast duck was proby the favorite of the night. Overall it was a nice night out for us. The ambience was very nice and relaxing. We had a great view of the sunset and ocean. The staffing was bare minimum but our server did his best to give us the best and attentive service.
