Very nice ambience, well designed space for the restaurant (open kitchen and open air) with the view of the hotel and beach. Menu was creative and food was nicely cooked. Quality ingredient and all was delicious. Price is steep but I guess you pay for the ambience and i guess cuz it is part of hotel.

Very nice ambiance and unbelievable sunsets. Definitely not cheap, except to pay $150-$175 per person. Worth it for a special occasion.

Get yourself a table outside for the sunset. Live music by the pool started during dinner which made it so fun - not too loud. Food was divine - we got the watermelon salad, risotto, fresh catch and strawberry cake for dessert. Super nice staff. Of course it’s overpriced because it’s at a nice hotel in Hawaii so it’s all about the experience.

Was a good anniversary dinner while visiting Maui. In hindsight could have remained at the Fairmont and patronized Nick’s or Ko rather than drive to the Andaz. Ambience overall is very nice though our table for two that faces the water was directly aimed at a table of 4 that blocked our view. Food was good, not amazing. Waiter’s “can’t miss” reconnections were fine but we found a couple other dishes to be better than those. Sommelier visited as frequently as the waiter, and was very helpful, which improved an otherwise okay job by the waiter.

The ambience, ocean view and service were excellent! The food however was underwhelming especially for the high price tag. We ordered the steak for two (medium rare) and it was chewy and too fatty. We did appreciate our waiter for getting us complimentary wine to celebrate our anniversary.

We were sat in a corridor where hotel guests were streaming by from the luau, from the pool in dripping swimsuits, etc. The food was great and our waiter was fantastic but we hadn’t expected to be eating in a hallway outside the restaurant.

We celebrated our 57th Wedding Anniversary and had a fantastic time at this restaurant!
Our server Carley and the Manager Tia were gracious enough to give us a wonderful glass of Champagne to celebrate our Anniversary. The food was outstanding, the service great, and the ambiance was fantastic! We highly recommend the Ka'ana Kitchen!

We have been at the Ka'ana Kitchen several times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent and the service is as well. I did notice that the drink prices have gone up. All in all we love the place and will be going to the restaurant again on Sunday to celebrate our anniversary

Food - amazing. But silly tiny portions, gratuitously overpriced (over most other excellent, local location-appropriate expensive Wailea restaurants), and shirtless hairy people in bathing suits walking from the pool by your table doesn’t really create the world-class experience this place must be shooting for.

Food was excellent. Like everywhere on Maui it was very crowded. It’s also quite loud. The wine list is significantly marked up. I think the $19 cocktails are a better option.

Our server was not attentive and seemed quite oblivious to our needs in every way. Overall the food was adequate, but not memorable for the investment. Average experience for what should have been an exceptional one. Unfortunate to say the least. Will not be making a return visit.

We had an amazing experience dining at Ka`ana Kitchen. Unfortunately the girls at the hostess stand were less than welcoming to an obvious father on Father's Day, but Kenji and Jansen quickly made up for it with their genuine desire to make sure everyone was served the Spirit of Aloha. They quickly turned a 2-star welcome to a 5-star experience. My family loved the food from friendly faces behind the counters and would love to dine here again. Maybe lunch AND dinner next time???
