    The Hyatt is such a lovely hotel, and the food, service, and ambience is always fabulous. Even had an excellent singer and hula dancer in the courtyard. Wonderful

    Great service initially, however, when ready for the check, we had flag someone. I know it was lunch time so we did not see this as an issue as service from being seated, water refills, and billing as great. I would highly suggest this as a place for business lunch.

    Super pricey for the buffet which starred the prime rib and a long line for the ahi poke. Netting around the terrace ruined the ambiance we paid a lot for.

    The salad, cheese tray, and potatoes were very good. The macarons were excellent. The remainder of the food was average. The setting was excellent. But, at $100 a person, all aspects of this Christmas meal should have been excellent ! This was disappointing.

    It is a little expensive for a holiday brunch. You are paying for the location and the ambiance. But over $100 with no mimosas??? You have to pay for them. The food is amazing but pricy when you look at what you ate.

    Hostess at the initial check in was very rude. It was not a crowded time at all, so it wasn’t a matter of being stressed. We had a few questions and she seemed quite bothered. The wait staff on the other hand was quite pleasant.

    The Mother’s Day Brunch experience was not worth the $99 price tag, especially for 13,14 year olds. And on top of that, no Kamaaina rate. Loved the hostesses, waitstaff, and manager, Michael Hutton.

    We had a very pleasant lunch with great ambiance. Got a great table with an excellent view. The noise level was very low so we could actually have a conversation without shouting across the table. Most importantly our server was on point and friendly and the food was excellent. I had the Ahi sandwich which was one of the best I have had. Yes a bit pricey but in line with other similar options on the island. would definitely go back.

    Giving it 1 star only because we were seated at the best spot in the entire restaurant. We were seated overlooking their swan/fish pond. Couple things: 1. When your kitchen closes at 2pm, please do not allow reservations for 1:45pm, guests feel rushed. 2. When a vegetarian asks you for recommendations, please dont say things like "eat the fruit plate"...if i wanted that, i wouldn't come to the Hyatt. I ordered the grilled tofu sandwich. SUBPAR. they put a balsamic vinegar dressing which just makes the bread soggy. You could get better sandwiches literally anywhere. WORST restaurant at the hyatt.

    Booked here for the Christmas buffet. Agreed to come to Kauai for Christmas as long as we wouldn’t end up eating at a fish restaurant for Christmas dinner. I was on the hunt for TRADITIONAL Christmas food and this buffet knocked it out of the park with turkey and all the trimmings, beef tenderloin, amazing sides and even more amazing desserts. Yes it was expensive— $95 prix fix — but it was exactly what I hoped for.
