We love Ka’ana Kitchen! Our first time at the restaurant was at the Andaz’s bitters and bites where we fell in love with the octopus salad, mushroom risotto, fried chicken, the cocktails, and the desserts! Then, we came back for more. We love that most, if not all, ingredients are local and that all of the flavors in every dish compliment each other beautifully and are perfectly prepared. The service is wonderful and always there to answer any questions or make recommendations! Oh, and the view is spectacular.
Food was pretty good.
All the people were nice.
Its just the menu.
Portion was so little. My daughter had to get some extra good just to get fill.
Its nice and fancy restaurant.
But from my taste. I will not go back there.
Our reservation was for 8pm, but we were starving, so we asked if we could be seated earlier and the hostess was very kind about us getting started an hour early. We were recommended Ka’ana Kitchen over several places from
Our foodie friends. It did not disappoint.
As you walk in you get to see the kitchen & bar at work. It’s bright, light, busy- but not chaotic, and you want to watch. We were seated overlooking some acoustic live music and the infinity pools. The menu is simple and straight forward. You can choose to share or do your own entree. The grilled octopus was dynamite! The Waygu Sirloin was cooked to perfection and the most flavorful reduction I’ve ever had. The Ahi Big Eye was seared perfectly. I really enjoyed the mint, cauliflower, and mushroom pairing with the fish. Their wine list is extensive and very good. Don’t rush it here. Drink some wine, enjoy the music (not too loud) and mostly the food. Definitely the best dinner we had on the island and we went everywhere.
We had dinner here the week prior and it was fabulous! No change tonight was absolutely amazing again on all levels. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Food very good but not great. Drinks to expensive comparing to same class places. Wine list do not have any option under $80. Not recommend if you want dinner with wine.
3rd time there and love it.
When looking at the menu in advance, I was a little hesitant to go here. It was just so different. So glad we did! The food was absolutely incredible.
There were two of us and we shared each of four dishes. Started with the grilled romaine, then clams and the lobster and then the chicken. Such a great way to go!
The service was wonderful and sitting outside just above the bar we were able to enjoy the fantastic entertainment. It was so enjoyable we ordered desert and again were not disappointed in the Coconut Sunday.
Every dish was so unique and tasty.
It was not an inexpensive evening but definitely an enjoyable one!
Beautiful view and exceptional food and service. Would 100% recommend!!
Big eye ahi entree was delicious. However, the sea bass was so-so, overlooked and tough. Service was a bit slow, but OK. Lovely ambiance!
We went here twice and both times it was amazing. The entries should be served with a spoon since the sauces are so yummy. Desserts are great as well. Try it!
Just a wonderful atmosphere with welcoming staff. My husband and I can't decide which is our favorite, the grilled octopus or the risoto. Our waiter, Jeff, made it specially much more memorable when our dessert was delivered. My husband wanted the tres leches for his birthday dessert. But I really love coconut desserts but it would be too much to have 2 types. But when the dessert was delivered to our table, there it was....... a mini coconut dessert that was just right to fill my sweet tooth. Thanks Jeff and Ka'ana Kitchen Crew; you are AWESOME.
Fantastic from start to finish. We are foodies and rarely give out A’s but this night this restaurant was A+ on all levels from service to wine to food! We will be back before we leave for sure!
Restaurant was always spectacular. service is and always been xlnt. food was wonderful Johnny Weisher is the best server around!!!! only draw back of the evening was the valet service had placed my very expensive special vehicle somewhere in N.field when I asked and tipped very well to keep this vehicle on hand in front!! bad experience with theft and damage...just put a damper on otherwise a perfect evening but this does not put a dark cloud on Ka'ana kitchen they were wonderful.....and would recommend to everyone...
Special Occasion was not treated like one. When booking, Ka'ana Kitchen, restaurant asked if this was a special occasion, to which we responded yes. Isn't it reasonable to expect them to do a little something nice like have waiter say happy birthday, or offer a little dessert?- otherwise why bother asking? No acknowledgement except by hostess.
Service was mediocre. (Our server was also waiting on a private room party dinner.) He was borderline brusque and didn't follow up on things he said he would do.
We are locals and wouldn't recommend this restaurant to visitors or locals (especially for a Special Occasion).
The food was fine, but not good enough to overcome the poor service.
Really good and pretty interesting food. Both the sesame noodles and seafood risotto were fantastic. Only quibble is that the Ahi belly was a little too salty.
Not quite up to the standard of service we had experienced previously. This was our 2nd time dining at Ka'Ana kitchen for dinner. We had breakfast there daily as we were staying at the hotel. Breakfast was always enjoyable and the service was friendly. For dinner the services was most annoying. The waiter tried 3 times to deliver our entrees before our drinks were brought to the table. We were sitting, enjoying the sunset and wanted to relax with a beverage before our dinner. To the credit of the restaurant they did remove the drinks from our bill. The food as always was delicious - I especially liked the ahi carpaccio. Just didn't appreciate the delivery...
Have been coming here for a quit a few years. Always expensive but well worth it. This time it’s like there is a new chef. The food was over cooked and really bad. Flavors were bad and textures. Will not be back again unfortunately. Was always a favorite but it was really bad and each item was bad. We had 5 different plates.
My Husband and I went here the other night and we were both underwhelmed by the food and disappointed with the service and his is what really killed the experience. Our server, David, came to greet us and explained the menu to us. From the time he finished explaining the menu and the time he came to take our order, it was 30mins. Between those 30mins, he didn't take to our table and we didn't see him walk by. By the time we placed our order, we waited another 30mins for the appetizer to come. David actually came to check on us around the 20min mark and asked us if our appetizer came. It was just a waiting game between each dish that by the time we were given the dessert menu, we just wanted to go home. Our water glasses were also empty for most of the night and had to request a few times for it to be refilled. I understand that service may be sacrificed when the restaurant gets busy but it shouldn't result in such slow and inattentive service, especially given the price we are paying. My Husby and I have been to fine dining places and much busier restaurants and never felt as neglected when we came to Ka'Ana Kitchen.
Wait for 30 mins to order, 30 mins for each course,. Total spent 90mins there. Waste of time.
Great food and wonderful service! We loved it so much that we dined there twice during our 3-night stay at the Andaz!
Very fresh seasonal food. My husband and I shared 2 appetizers and 2 main and 1 dessert. Plenty of food. We had an amazing dinner. Will differently return on our next visit to Maui.
Outstanding service, food and ambience
Even the entry into the hotel was chic
Server was AMAZING and Manager made special appearance to welcome us and wish us well on our special occasion. JUST GO and have fun!
Food good; portions could be larger. Want d to bring in a bottle of wine and we’re told the corkage was $65.00. Absurd!!
Our server, JD was very helpful and pleasant. The hostess and support staff were also very nice.
Great restaurant! From the service to the food everything was awesome and we will definitely return the next time we're back on Maui!
The food and ambiance were excellent.
You can get a stunning view of the sunset from the outside sitting area. They also have an excellent selection of wines.
4/4/2018. We had the Wagyu hanger steak, green ceviche, shrimp risotto, fried chicken, all are delicious! Wish they bring back the abalone risotto with sous vide egg, it’s one of my all time favorite! Had a few glasses of wine, napa, Châteauneuf du Pape, Brunello, Barolo...you name it, they have it, all phenomenal. Chef Isaac is so talented, and he has the dream team right there with him! Highly recommend this place!
Decent food and service but very expensive.
I was disappointed in Ka' ana Kitchen. The food was just okay nothing outstanding or memorable. We were a party of eight and had a reservation at least for 2-3 weeks. They sat us in an area by ourselves basically outside of the restaurant. Looks like it is an area for large parties but it made us feel like outcasts and really not a part of the restaurant. We were the only ones seated in this area the entire night. It really put a damper on the whole experience.
We love this restaurant. The food and service are strong.
Chef table... #91 😉. Best table location and wonderful experience. Beautiful well flavoured clean food. Highly recommend. Probably our best dining experience during our visit to Maui. Well rounded menu for anyone to enjoy.
Incredible - everything from wine selection to menu. Perfect.
We had a wonderful time at Ka’ana Kitchen.
We have dined there about 6 times.
Chef Issac is an amazing chef!
Andaz is fortunate to have him as executive chef.
We will be back soon.
Great dinner for honeymoon.
Food. Service. Ambiance.
Everything is great.
But little bit expencive
Stunning view of the sunset. Great service. The meals were superb- we love the steak and the ahi. Pretty hard to find stuff for the kids, but they were open to some substitutions.
Tremendous attention to detail. The flavors alone and combined were so creative and tasty . Pricy but highly recommended.
We are in Hawaii for a baby moon. The food here was excellent. Not cheap though. But excellent. Would go again but it’s a splurge. Inventive menu.
The entire experience was disappointing. The server rattled off his description of the menu as a memorized script (he gave the same description to other diners). Beyond impersonal and completely unengaged. I was then served a chilled glass of red wine. When I clearly complained about this, I was informed that it was the correct temperature for wine, with the intimation that I was not very sophisticated and I should appreciate the cold red wine. Apparently the customer isn’t ever right here. The noodles were very good; the fish was bland. Whoever thinks fish should be served in a giant round bowl, so that your knife and fork constantly slip into the middle, must also think red wine should be served cold. Finally, if the reservation indicates a special occasion, and you select “birthday,” and the restaurant in no way acknowledge this, WHY DID YOU ASK? If pretentiousness is your thing, you may enjoy this place. If you are a normal human being, don’t waste your time or money. Happy birthday to me.
Excellent food!!! Great service. The fried chicken was amazing.
