Hawaii Regional Cuisine
What we serve at Ka‘ana, we serve from the heart. We source from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. We only put on your plate what we feel is proper to serve. Our pairings speak to the ability to connect the elements of taste, smell, and touch with everything around us.
Our dishes are prepared using techniques from around the culinary world, but thought-out in accordance with our micro-climate. The way we prepare our fish, season our salads, and grill our meat depends not only on its origin, but what the weather tells us, how the swells on the ocean shape our mood, and how the land influences our feelings.
Here we hope to blur the lines between your kitchen and our restaurant, between what is external and what is internal. We invite you in, share our hopes, and create a unique dining experience that connects you to this place and its essence.

Very creative menu. The Food was great. Went back a second night just to try other items on the menu. The Chef is a true artist with food.

The scallop dish I ordered had 3 overly cooked scallops that were extremely chewy. The 40is dollars spent was not worth it. The portions were small is well. I would not go back.

I was disappointed with this place. I expected an amazing meal. Service was great. But the food is missing flavor. Food was very fresh, ingredients great but the execution was off. Sashimi had an anchovy sauce that was way over the top. Very over powering and it killed the delicate flavor of the sashimi. Chef just needs to work on the flavor profiles and put it together better. The drinks were great though nice hand crafted cocktails.

Food and service were both excellent. Get a table outside if you can. A shared app and two entrees was actually enough, but we both ordered desserts anyway. We left stuffed. The octopus app was especially well done.

Server was very absent. He only stopped by long after we wanted to order food and never stopped by to check on us. Food was overpriced for the portions. Best Ahi I’ve ever had, but you only get three bites. Good views and ambiance. My wife and I are on our honeymoon and the server brought us glasses of champagne during dessert after we already finished a bottle of wine. We probably should have gotten the champagne before the meal and before we ordered a bottle of wine. You can do way better in Maui.

We often have brunch at Ka'ana Kitchen but hadn't had the pleasure of dinner until recently. Every dish was an incredible balance of flavor, texture and color from the intense watermelon salad combined with li hing maui, arugula, goat cheese and balsamic to the delicate Kona Kampachi and creamy risotto. There was even a dessert for gluten and dairy free diners that was NOT sorbet - a green tea coconut milk ice cream that might be the best ice cream I've ever tasted.

As a bonus, we were seated outside overlooking the lounge, pool and ocean so were treated to some lovely live music.

We'll be back!

I have dined in restaurants all over the world. This is one of the most wonderful experiences I've ever had. The service is perfect. Genuinely happy people, making your meal ideal. The food is interesting and deliciously prepared. The chef really does give you something remarkable with every course. The view is one of the best in Maui - a sunset dinner I'll never forget.

We stayed at the Andaz (2nd time in 4 years) and enjoyed our dinner at Ka'ana Kitchen. We also ate at Morrimoto (located at the Andaz) and really enjoyed that as well.
Our food was terrific at the Andaz and I would highly recommend it. Unfortunately our server seemed to be annoyed that we were there. He was not very helpful and we felt he was rushing out. His service is the only reason we did not give the experience 5 stars.

The food was incredible and our server was very attentive and nice. However, we were seated almost a half hour after our reservation, and the food came out incredibly slowly (it took over 90 minutes after being seated just for two apps, two entrees, and two desserts). We may not have minded if our flight wasn’t early the next morning, but we weren’t expecting to be at the restaurant until after 10 for an 8pm dinner reservation. But if you have the time and don’t mind waiting, it’s definitely worth the food!

The restaurant is beautiful with great views of the hotel pools and ocean. It was full but not overwhelming. Unfortunately, service was pretty slow. Also, for $30-50 per plate, I was expecting much more from the food. Everything was very tasty but should have been in the 25-35 range for the quality.

Quality/price ratio is poor despite the expected low ratio of the entire island. I guess they survive due to the captive Andaz crowd

JD was an awesome server! We came in for an early graduation celebration for my sister and we could not have had any better service. The food was so ‘ono (delicious) and we enjoyed our time there. Portions are on the smaller side (even with the menu items listed as big portions) but it was nice to order a bunch of items and share it all ‘ohana style with all my family. Can’t wait to come celebrate there again!
