    Normally the service and food are wonderful. Not do much this time. Food was undercooked the service was not good. I’m assuming due to a shortage of staff.

    We had a truly lovely birthday celebration thanks to Mala. She was very personable and friendly but professional and generous. She is an asset to the wait staff at Ilima Terrace. And the food? Delicious and very nicely presented. A memorable occasion and much Aloha shown!!🏝

    Very nice retreat for lunch despite the hotel being full capacity. Service was warm and friend. Food very reasonable for on-site dining, especially compared to outside pool food

    I love the views from the Illima Terrace in the Grand Hyatt, Kauai. We had brunch, celebrating our anniversary. There were Orchid Leis shaped as hearts on our table when we were seated. The manager, hostess and server all greeted with "Happy Anniversary" and a nice dessert sampler was included. The cocktails were inventive and I loved my pesto shrimp and fish salad with Papaya and macadamia nut pieces.

    Service was spectacular as well as the views and ambiance. We had the lunch menu so it was limited and certainly not extraordinary. Pretty average. Best part was the appetizer (only one available) ahi poke bowl. Great flavors. Everything else was ok. not good not bad just ok. All that being said, go there for the views and in our experience, the service!! We would do it again tomorrow (if they had availability)

    My wife’s crusted fish & prawn salad was delicious. Unfortunately my ahi sandwich was well done except for a few bites that were delicious as the sandwich should of been. Ahi should never be well done unless requested! Lack of quality control by the chef crew for a 5* hotel and prices which I expect for the beautiful ambience - and food should be.

    Easter brunch was incredibly underwhelming. The food was tasteless cafeteria food with very few choices. Expected far better quality for the price. Location and ambiance were nice. Service was fine.

    Went here for brunch (not breakfast buffet) and the food was great! The view is stunning and it’s a nice, relaxed atmosphere. However, service is not there at all and when it is, it is severely lacking in professionalism and attentiveness.

    Setup a reservation for 2:00pm and then drove 40 minutes to get to the restaurant only to be told that they quit seating guess at 1:30pm. Why are they accepting reservations and then denying them when you arrive. Back communications
