I had reserved this for our 41st anniversary months ago requesting a front table in the outside front of the restaurant for this occasion.
They tried to seat us in the back outside bar area at first.
But refused and got inside but not up front outside.
Very very disappointing that this could not be accommodated especially when requested very far ahead.
Hence we didn’t even want to order big cuz it took the wind out for us!

I proposed to my fiancée earlier that day so the restaurant had to be perfect, and Japengo was. The food was excellent, service was phenomenal, and atmosphere (water views, lit tiki torches, sounds of fountains, light music) made it perfect. Highly recommend but call far in advanced.

Great food though pricey. Cocktails were not good and expensive, next time will drink beforehand and skip the overpriced low quality cocktails.

It was great! Service was a tad slow but that could be the normal for the relaxing island. Drinks were great and food was killer. Had the Calamari and the Pork Buns. For the entree we had the chefs special. Incredible.

The food was just ok. The pork ribs were overcooked and uneasy. They removed the ribs from the bill and the sushi rolls were just ok. For someone that wanted a soybean paper roll, it was horrible. I was very disappointed to hear they support veggie styles since the roll would come apart as I ate it. My niece had gooey duck and squid sushi with wasabi underneath. This was not on the menu so another disappointment for adding items without the customer being aware. I would not recommend the restaurant as the only perk is the view during the day for a lunch spot.

Views of the ocean- sunset and tiki torches everywhere. Indoor & outdoor seating and terrific bar area. The sushi, stir fry veggies- rolls, so delicious and so very fresh! We had the ginger cream brûlée for dessert- so wonderful! The cocktails were inventive and so yummy. I can’t say enough - we will go to Japengo every time we come to Maui!

Best food we had in Maui. Steak was amazing and we’re from Texas so that’s saying a lot. Sushi was the best. Wish we would have booked several dinners here.

Though the decor and view were nice, I was rather dissatisfied with the rest of the night. The food was extremely expensive and took over an hour at least to arrive. Sushi was average, and a family member was served bad beer that had to be replaced. Regardless, views were amazing and the evening was calm and peaceful with pretty Hawaiian flowers and shrubbery. Overall, I don’t think I will be coming back any time soon, as Japengo was expensive and time consuming to eat at.

Our favorite restaurant on Maui!!! We're here about 3 times a year and always go. The food is always fresh, the sushi is absolutely delicious, whether sitting at the bar or a table, everyone is hands on and very helpful. We met Sheri, a server a few years ago and is so wonderful, friendly, upbeat, honest and a doll! Bartenders make excellent drinks. Every employee, server, manager, hosts, all so friendly and helpful. Japengo never disappoints.

Japengo was a lovely experience! The ambience is beautiful and we had a great table on the patio in the garden by the ocean! Our server Dave was very warm and friendly and made us feel very special. The sushi was delicious and the drinks tasty. It’s a bit spendy but a fun splurge for a night out! Loved it!

The food was amazing. The service was great, but the thing I liked the most was that there was no rush to order. Our server gave us plenty of time to order and ask questions about the food. He even gave me a free piece of cake for my birthday.

Beautiful outside patio. There are two, so indicate which one you want. Both are ocean view, but one you can see the neighboring island although you have to deal with direct sun light. Situated within the Hyatt resort. Beautiful grounds with geese, swan, flamingos and even penguins.

Awesome, family friendly dining with breathtaking ocean views! And the food….oh the food…AMAZING! The portion sizes are quite large! Definitely not tapas sized, which is so great when you are feeding hungry kids and their hungry parents! There were couples, adults with friends, and families (with babies to teens) dining there so it is great for anyone! PS. It is sunny there, even in the covered areas so bring sunglasses if you have them! But the views are worth having to squint a little sometimes! Every part of this restaurant is 5 stars to my family and me!
