Gwen provided amazing service. Her wine knowledge and selections were fabulous. The pre-fix menu for Valentine’s Day was scrumptious. Loved dining outside with a sunset view and live music from the outside bar below. Perfect way to celebrate with my husband.

One of the best meals we have ever had. We are going back again before we leave Maui. Archer (bar manager) was especially creative and attentive.

We had so many amazing meals in Wailea... Just not one at Ka'ana Kitchen. Very middle of the road. Desserts looked nice on neighboring tables but we were not compelled to stick around for one.

Excellent food and service. Nice ambience. Great view. Drinks and appetizers and main courses and desserts all first class although maybe a little pricey. I still recommend it though. The view is beautiful, Especially at sunset. The waiter was excellent and very helpful as well.

For our last night on Maui, we wanted great food which would not disappoint. One nice thing about the menu is it is divided in such a way one can enjoy a little bit of this and that. The wagyu hanger steak, grilled octopus salad and scallop risotto were all fantastic. Get the coconut ice cream sundae, pure heaven. We had the same waitress we had when we dined at the Chef’s table which made it seem like we were with old friends. Overall a great meal. The kitchen is efficient and consistent. Each dish is beautifully plated which only adds to this dining enjoyment.

This restaurant represents fine dining at its best. Service is perfect , food is of the highest quality and made with love and respect for the ingredients resulting in creation of award worthy dishes. It is not easy to find special place like this one when you are Ona short trip but when you do, it would be unfair and a shame not to point it out and mention it for others to know. Whatever your plans are during your stay in Wailea , make sure this restaurant is part of it.

The food was excellent. Lots of local selections including lobster, ahi, other fish and pork. Great and liberal use of local fruits and veg. All served beautifully. Service was good and servers were very knowledgeable about the offerings. Though I had to remind my server about a drink he didn’t put it on the bill! Very nice!
It’s a huge modern room and a beautiful hotel and location. But very bright! For a big hotel the meal was impressive.

The place is really beautiful. The staff was super and helpful. Very fun to talk with about the menu selection. The food was very good. You get what you pay for, but it's kinda small portions for me. I felt like the commercial with the brother eating tiny food. No it's not that tiny, but it's so good you want a bigger portion. Ok, I'm not thin to be fair... Anyway, we really enjoyed it and thought it was great. Definitely recommend it, but if you're like me, you may want to get extra! Drinks were great too I should say. And the view..well, wow it's Maui in a great elevated location. Perfect for sunset dinner.

Read great reviews
Server nice but didn’t help us with menu and I could tell she wanted to turn the table
Champagne was room temp
Opakapaka great
Desert great so
E menu items like Bibb were very expensive and really just lettuce
Too much for a casual spot
No bread service asked if we wanted plates to share etc
At this price I shouldn’t have to ask For a plate

My husband and I enjoy trying new restaurants at home and while on vacation and we agreed that the meal we had here was one of the top 10 meals we’ve had in our 7 years together. We had the watermelon salad, octopus salad, black sesame noodles, and a steak and they were all fantastic. Steak was cooked perfectly. For dessert we had the coconut sundae and the pineapple cake. Definitely worth the price and we would definitely recommend!

Order a watermelon salad, took one bite and saw a bug crawling out. I notified the wait staff who took it away but never brought back a new one AND still charged me for it. I had to asked them to remove.

The food was OK. Fusion is not really my thing. Too much of trying to make a classic dish different- ended up ruining it. It’s really hard to come from a place with such good food because everything else ends up being mediocre.

What was supposed to be a special night out, was everything but. The view was gorgeous, however when making the reservation, it was not indicated that the Chef tasting menu was available. Additionally, 3 of the 5 dishes we ordered (3 apps and 2 entrees) were not what I was expecting. Looking forward to a fish dish on Maui, the Maui Caught fish, I found it to be incredibly bland. The Berkshire Pork Belly was overwhelmingly citrus, which drowned out everything else. Both the Octopus and Risotto were good, but the rest really left a great deal to be desired.

Second time there in a week. See my earlier glowing review. The place is great. Quiet outdoors, beautiful views of pools and ocean, great service where no request is refused. And, oh yeah, delicious food. Can’t wait to return.

Had poke starter and beet salad. Poke was seared and cooked at table on hot iron pan with fresh mushrooms and onions. Thus you could limit the cooking of the fish and keep it more rare or cool it longer, up to you. Beet salad has beets and greens separated which I also enjoyed more than having them mixed together with dressing.
No room for dessert;sadly missed chocolate soufflé !

Opentable claims that this restaurant is $$$ “between $30 and $50”. Cannot be farther from the truth. It is a very expensive restaurant, that delivers a high end experience.

This was a favorite restaurant until we went for New Years Eve. There was no mention when we booked that it would be a set menu of $180 per person. There was no price on the fixed price menu at the table. Had we known, we would have walked out; I fully expect that this was the reason for not letting the public know. The hot food was cold and the cold food was uninspiring. It was as if had been pre-prepared and reheated or left to sit. For a family of 4 with a bottle of wine it was over $1000 - an exorbitant price for a mediocre meal. As one couple who passed by our table said, "Well, I guess we'll be eating tinned tuna for the rest of the vacation..." An 18% gratuity for four people was also added - it was hidden among the lines of the bill and not noticed by us nor pointed out by the server. Unfortunately we tipped on top of that. It was not a pleasant experience and brought a great deal of unhappiness to an occasion that should have been the start of a wonderful new year.

I made the reservation on open table and no where was I notified that it was pre fixe that night. There were no prices on the menu so I didn’t know what we were in for until we got the bill. 2 adults, some drinks and a kids menu item was almost $600. I could have stayed in Hawaii 2 days longer for that price! The food and service was great though.

I’ve eaten here about 4 times now, coming back every time I visit Maui. The food is consistently delicious every time. It has gotten quite crowded over the years and a lot louder. Service seems rushed to accommodate with the crowd. It’s not as relaxing and enjoyable.

Unfortunately, our experience wasn’t great. We told our waiter that one of us is Celiac, but she was served gluten. Another person in our part order the steak that was supposed to be 6 oz, but was more 3-4 oz. The manager offered to supplement the meat after we complained, but we declined the offer. The rest of the meal was simply ok.

We had very early reservations, so we had a nice seat overlooking the water. The service in the beginning was excellent. Very attentive and helpful with the menu and wine selections. I had the Mahi Mahi and my husband had the chicken. Both were prepare very well. We had a wonderful wine, as their wine list is huge. The dessert was disappointing, it was the kind of a deconstructed tiramisu. Service slowed down as the restaurant got very busy. However, it was a very nice night and great food..

We have been so happy with our holiday dinner pick at the Ka'ana Kitchen. I have food sensitivities - gluten free- and the menu gives me so many options. We had the Christmas Dinner this year and I was delighted to be able to have just about everything. My hat off to the chefs for creating such a masterful feast. ALOHA from two very satisfied Kamahainas.
