Overall it was an ok experience, the food was good but not great, the service was good but not great, the atmosphere was very nice, however it’s noisy, especially if you are seated near the open concept kitchen. For the value, you are better off going to Mama’s the food was just so so, and the price’s were crazy for what you get. We live on Maui, we also frequent most of the hotel restaurants on the South side and west side, and I can honestly say, this one has to be one of my least favorite places. I wouldn’t dine here again. It’s way over priced especially for why you get!

We chose this restaurant for the live music and sunset but our table was by the kitchen. We were behind a post and there was music piped in so we couldn’t hear the live artist. We also really struggled with the menu. Disappointing since we were celebrating our daughters college graduation.

While quite pricey, the food was excellent, great wine options, terrific service from both our waiter and the sommelier. Lovely view to the ocean.. We shared the mussels appetizer, my wife had the tuna and I the steak. For dessert we shared the coconut cake sundae with the Royal Tokaji dessert wine. All were superb. For a special occasion, it is an excellent choice.

Food was just okay, for the premium prices you’d wish it had more value. Portion sizes are small but that’s what you’d expect from a high end restaurant anyway. Sadly the food specifically the fish of the day was cooked medium rare and was chewy and lacked flavor. Scallops appetizer were pretty good though.

Ambiance was nice, decent amount of people and live music created a lively atmosphere.

Friendly, attentive service and relatively tasty food marred by poor execution, unsatisfactory steps of service, and uncomfortable seating. The overall experience did not justify the cost, even at “luxury hotels in Maui” pricing.

Good food but it is incredibly over valued for what you get. I’m not sure I will go there again unless I don’t want to leave the resort. You can get much better food for the same value at most places.

I definitely appreciated their wine selection as I live in Oregon wine country. Our Austrian wine was spectacular and the steak appetizer was a crowd pleaser. The big eye tuna and fries chicken were good. The fish fillet was just okay and the watermelon salad fell short. Overall I would go again but maybe just for a glass of wine, a appetizer and a good view.

Came to this restaurant a few times during our stay at the Andaz and overall it's good! The first dinner we had was very good. The breakfast (being the only option at Andaz) was just okay. I think they're doing great things in general for what they can offer, and we enjoyed ourselves. Thanks for the wonderful week Andaz!

The restaurant had a nice sunset view. The food was good not great but very expensive especially for the portions. I think there are better restaurants for that price point and the menu was limited. My daughter ordered the ahi large portion dinner and when we came back to the condo she had leftover pizza because she was still hungry.

Very nice , modern decor, good table by window, excellent server. Presentation of food artful. Watermelon salad was wilted and NOT worth $19! Octopus beautiful and tender. Fried chicken came with a great salad and jalapeño cheddar bread. Could have shared, large portion. In all, nice place for Wailea hotel prices.

We prepared for a fine dining but got very disappointed with the service and restaurant itself. Poor menu, some dishes were just a simple disappointment. How can you ruin grilled octopus? Simply grill it and serve with the right sauce ! They serve it with salad . It was sliced , served over salad , chewy and just not worth it..
stake appetizer was nothing special.
Ahi appetizer with huge tomatoes and ton of Mayo... ouch
The only dish I liked was the steak from big dishes .. wouldn’t recommend! Sorry chef

One of my favorite restaurants in the world. Even though the menu is still limited due to COVID, they brought back all the favorites like the Buttermilk chicken, hanger steak, and fresh fish. Always an amazing evening.
