Hostess mentioned that they knew it was my birthday. Nothing happened after that. Was sat on the the patio, beautiful view. Lightning and thunder started , saw the rain coming. Had to flag down the manager and ask where we were going to sit if it started raining. They took about 10 minutes to figure out where they were going to move us. Started to drizzle, kids were getting wet- did'nt hear back from the manager, so we got up and started walking back to main covered section of the restaurant. Kids started crying because they were wet and cold. Staff was very kind and considerate to our little kids, brought a blanket and smoothie to sooth them from getting wet. Service was rushed, had to flag down the server because she walked away while we were placing the order and did'nt finish. Food took a long time. Reservation was at 6:30, did'nt eat dinner until 7:20-7:30. Experience was mediocre for price point.
Delicious food. The view fantastic! Good s little rich.
When we visit Maui we always go to Japengo! Their sushi is excellent - fresh & beautifully presented - always delicious! We tried their ribs as an appetizer & found them a little disappointing. The cocktails were. perfect as was the ambiance - we sat in a covered area but open to the outdoors. Great service! We will return for sure!
Not accommodating at all. I asked for different seat - I made my reservation early and they sat me in the corner
Went here years ago and had a great time. Returned this time and now I am gluten free. They had a menu to accommodate which was wonderful but everything we ordered of it was exceptionally bland tasting and quite boring. Waiter was nice but was overworked and was not able to attend to our needs. Refills were never offered in the 1.5 hours we were there and glasses were all empty. Really expensive for such disappointing experience.
Great time with great food
Excellent service and food! Great environment for a sunset family dinner.
Food was excellent..second trip here in past couple months...service was attentive and pleasant..left us alone yet always available to refill water or bring more sauces
The ahi roll was amazing. Great live music before sitting down at our table.
A great place with a romantic view, and the seafood in particular was awesome
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! ***Had a drink in bar area (premium liquor on rocks $14) and was charged $20 for same drink while dining! Manager came over and said they probably under charged us at bar. Went to a similar fine dining establishment in area and asked the bartender about this practice and he was amazed and said they would never do that!
Server and abratender provided exceptional service. Host stand crew was very unfriendly
Great location right above pool and overlooking ocean.
Most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen
We chose to dine at Japengo at sunset, and even though it was somewhat overcast, the view and the ambiance was wonderful. At the servers recommendation, we tried several different dishes. Japengo offers half orders of some dishes, plus we shared the entree. We loved the scallops, which were a special on the evening we were there. We also thought the Lahaina Roll was excellent. We were less excited about the fried rice we ordered, but it was still good. I don't know if the server had too many tables or whether he just forgot us from time to time, but the service could have been better. The server was very knowledgeable about the various dishes, however, and gave us good recommendations.
Love Japengo!! If we’re goin to Maui, we’re goin to Japengo!!
I ordered the evening special, mahi-mahi and lobster with a white wine sauce. My meal was cold. Flavour would have been awesome if the meal would have been hot.
Won’t be returning, very expensive and not worth it.
Excellent Food. Great ocean view! Fun evening.
Delicious fresh food. Absolutely succelent dining!
Ate mainly sushi. Couple appetizers as well. The lobster dynamite was good but seemed overpriced. The sushi was good but nothing special. The waitress wasn’t particularly attentive. As the evening closed advised us to kitchen was closing so if we want to desert we had to order now. Thought that was rather rude considering it’s not a cheap restaurant. This restaurant is at the Hyatt hotel. Service here at The other restaurants has been rather poor so not surprised
