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

The service was excellent all the way around. Scrumptious dinner, we had the fish of the day and scallops. And the dessert, coconut ice cream sundae and strawberry cake are to die for.

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.

While visiting Maui we took our daughter to Ka’ana Kitchen to celebrate her 18th birthday. Our server was fantastic!! We ordered all the small plates, each as delicious as the next, as well as the risotto and Ahi Big Eye from the big plate menu. We highly recommend all the dishes and this restaurant overall.

This place was outrageously expensive and the food was good but the service was definitely outstanding. The hotel is beautiful and the restaurant has an open kitchen concept. We sat indoors and had a front view of the action. Our kids had the fried chicken and it was delicious. My husband had the fish and I had the hanger steak. Portions are small compared to other restaurants.

Validated valet parking. Restaurant is inside hotel on bottom floor. Top tier dishes. 1 side and an entre dish is recommended for each person. Staff was a little busy with the patrons, but overall experience was amazing.

Would visit again

Quite a foodie destination as the dishes were well executed. Prices were a little high and portions a little small. Wine list was excellent and a number of good choices by the glass.

VERY limited menu. We had a child and pregnant woman which made it difficult. They ran out of waffle fries and offered regular fries as a substitute and charged for them. In my opinion this should have been a comp. Our server Chris was fabulous but he was spread thin. It didn’t seem like he had any assistance as there was little to no pre-bussing until our next course arrived, no marking for the next course with the exception of entrees. Overall the team was courteous but they seemed understaffed. I know some of this is due to recovering from Covid and re-opening, however the lack of menu was extremely frustrating.

This is a quality restaurant overall, but it is way over-priced for good but not outstanding quality food ($340 for three people PLUS tip. Meal included one drink each, shared one appetizer, shared one dessert, plus three entrées). Restaurant was noisy inside. Outside was above a bar with loud live music (drummer who sang, but not Hawaiian music). The manager was accommodating, and the server friendly. I love fine dining in a warm, comfortable environment. This wasn't it. (If you're staying at the hotel, which is beautiful, and you don't mind the cost or noise, I'd say, give it a shot.)

Food was good, but was overpriced. When charging $50/plate I expect something more than basic grilled fish and sauteed vegetables.

Stayed on property and changed from morimoto to ka’ana based on looking up the menu—shouldn’t have. Menu only has a few offerings, currently. Didn’t enjoy the time as much as we expected to and the food didn’t live up to my expectations. Hubby said the Mahi mahi was good. The octopus wasn’t great and the risotto was just decent. Had potential but for some reason, it just didn’t quite meet the mark.
