The entire experience was disappointing. The server rattled off his description of the menu as a memorized script (he gave the same description to other diners). Beyond impersonal and completely unengaged. I was then served a chilled glass of red wine. When I clearly complained about this, I was informed that it was the correct temperature for wine, with the intimation that I was not very sophisticated and I should appreciate the cold red wine. Apparently the customer isn’t ever right here. The noodles were very good; the fish was bland. Whoever thinks fish should be served in a giant round bowl, so that your knife and fork constantly slip into the middle, must also think red wine should be served cold. Finally, if the reservation indicates a special occasion, and you select “birthday,” and the restaurant in no way acknowledge this, WHY DID YOU ASK? If pretentiousness is your thing, you may enjoy this place. If you are a normal human being, don’t waste your time or money. Happy birthday to me.
Excellent food!!! Great service. The fried chicken was amazing.
We've been to ka'ana kitchen a number of times. It never disappoints! it's a whole experience from the minute you arrive. We usually let our waiter recommend dishes to us as well as wine pairings. We always leave raving about the entire night! Will go back again and again!
This was our second time at Ka’ana Kitchen and even better than before. The meal was delicious—Poke, Lobster, ink noodle, market. Super fresh and flavorful. They even had a kids menu with our daughters loved.
From the moment we arrived- it was perfect
The warm welcome
To our seats— in a banquette - overlooking the ocean with the setting sun
To our server, Steve- knowledgeable-and dear
And then- our food—- exquisite and delicious
The best octopus salad I have ever had to perfect Hawaiian fish- beautifully presented and delicate to taste
To the Waygu sirloin - perfection
As it was our Anniversary— a Banana Bread pudding with ice cream arrived with a candle
What an evening - shared plates to be celebrated and enjoyed
Not a formal stuffy evening—- a lovely charming absolutely delicious feast for the eyes— and mouth
We will be back!
Maybe next time at the Chefs Table
One of the best restaurants on Maui. Yes it is pricey, but you get what you pay for - all of it is awesome - food, service, ambiance, clean, amazing!!!!
Had the best time. The food and drinks were incredible as was the service. I would come back all the time if I lived closer!
The food is inventive and tasty. The atmosphere is clean, bright and airy. The service is attentive and genuine. A little pricey, but not so bad for a Hawaiian resort.
Great food and atmosphere
Great food and service.
Our son recommended this restaurant as he had his birthday dinner there three months before. The place is quite elegantly modern and the view toward the ocean is great. The menu is unusal and somewhat limited and the terms used in describing the offerings can be confusing - we had to ask our very pleasant and efficient wait person to translate. However the seafood dishes and the appetizer provided a different and tasty experience. The restaurant is in a snazzy Wailea condo and thus this became the most pricey meal in our Maui week - nearly $250 including cocktails, desserts, and tax. Valet parking.
Creative and delicious food served in a beautiful setting. The service was professional and friendly. Quite pricy (especially the wine list - might be worth checking what their corkage is), but well worth it. Overall a memorable meal.
Overall very nice but not on the water and very overpriced for what you get.
The food was great and it was fun to sit near the open air kitchen.
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone until they replace the chairs. the first chair had a nice cushion over totally collapsed webbing with no mid seat support (like sitting on a toilet seat). The second chair we tried was the same. The third chair had patially collapsed webbing. I gave up and sat on booth seat.
Great meal. Sunset view. Great service.
Here I usually order the black sesame noodles along with an order of octopus, my personal Katana Kitchen favorite. This time however, no black sesame noodles. The kitchen decided that I would be fine if they simply substituted some sort of generic white pasta, insulting both my intelligence and palate. To not make diners aware of substitutions, especially at range-topping prices, is just plain wrong. C'mon guys!
Great live music and great menu
It's was amazing. Very knowledgeable server named JD was awesome, the food was very well plated with generous portions and stated amazing!
MUST ORDER CLAMS! The standout of the menu was the clams.
It what wonderful artful presentations of excellent small plates
Everything was very good, but we felt rushed. This place is quite pricey, and a meal in this price range should last at least two.hours.
We enjoyed Ka’Ana Kitchen last night but not as much as we have in the past. We have been there at least half a dozen times. We sat outside at the very end of their patio. The server was there at the beginning to explain the menu and take our drink order. We also placed our first order of food, served more like tapas style, and then we felt forgotten about the rest of the night. The water refills, second course orders and dessert order were slow. The Tuna Takaki, Sesame Noodles and Hangar Steak were our first course. We loved them all. The second order was for the Pork Belly and Fried Chicken. The chicken was great and the Pork Belly was a bit disappointing this time. We should have ordered the Coconut Sundae but got the Chocolate Tres Leches...nothing like a Tres Leches Cake and too heavy of a coffee flavor for me to enjoy.
We really enjoyed all of the food...however the slow service was disappointing for an expensive restaurant like this one.
Fresh food, extremely tasty and beautiful presentation.
We had a wonderful evening - delicious food... great service...a delightful date night
The setting is lovely. Food was good but menu limited. Overall, for the prices, not exceptional, and not a good value.
All the flavours where delicious. Great ambiance but it is a bit loud. I would definitely go back.
We have been to this restaurant several times over the last three years. Have never had a bad meal, or even a bad dish there. The service has always been top notch- friendly , professional and attentive.
Only minor complaint is that it doesn’t seem the menu has changed much over time, though I guess most patrons are there infrequently and would not notice
A beautiful place, even more beautiful hotel and fun
Innovative and well prepared food. Attentive and friendly service.
This was the most ridiculously priced preset menu we have ever had. Since it was Valentine’s Day we had no choice but to spend 155 per person. The food was ok for the price and service was no where near what you would expect for the price. Never going back here again.
Good food but bright lights like a cafeteria. The view is beautiful, but the ambiance is lost due to lighting. Sitting outside or next to the windows is nice and more private. The servers are attentive and really MOVE. Fried chicken with mochi and broccolini was excellent. Hubby finished it after his own. The watermelon salad with crumbled feta was outstanding. We got a free coupon for this $15 appetizer when we signed up for canoe lesson. The grilled octopus and ahi tuna apps we also divine. Nice experience. Limited wine choices although I was happy with my Justin from CA.
The grilled octopus was incredibly delicious. Plates are meant to be shared. Ambiance isn’t the greatest out of the Wailea restaurants, but the food is definitely worth trying this restaurant out.
We enjoyed the cusine, the deserts were yummy, the atmosphere was exquisite and the service was excellent. Very enjoyable experience!
Great food. Portions are small but food is meant to be shared. The Chef came to our table and had a conversation with us. Great touch to our experience.
The food and the service was incredible from beginning to end. John was our server and he was wonderful! The food was amazing don’t miss the chicken and the coconut dessert!
Excellent service, creative menu. Gorgeous setting.
Mixologist/Bartender (Chase) made excellent drinks.
Also had him at the lower pool bar next day. Great bartender!
Ka’ana accommodated two friends who joined us at the last minutes. Nice casual atmosphere with good selection of appetizers and small plates which we shared. Cheerful efficient service. Wine list seemed overpriced but probably a product of being in Maui. I would recommend to friends.
Amazing and tasty food. We received great recommendations from our server, Jeff. Good service from staff. Very busy and slightly noisy place however.
We were there for a friend's 40th birthday, with a surprise cake, guest, etc. Restaurant was extremely accommodating and helped make this surprise bday party a success. Mahalo!
Our meal was fantastic. This was our favorite meal on Maui. Would recommend it over Mama's fish House if you're looking for innovative cuisine.
