About Ka'ana Kitchen at Andaz Maui

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.

This was the most ridiculously priced preset menu we have ever had. Since it was Valentine’s Day we had no choice but to spend 155 per person. The food was ok for the price and service was no where near what you would expect for the price. Never going back here again.

Good food but bright lights like a cafeteria. The view is beautiful, but the ambiance is lost due to lighting. Sitting outside or next to the windows is nice and more private. The servers are attentive and really MOVE. Fried chicken with mochi and broccolini was excellent. Hubby finished it after his own. The watermelon salad with crumbled feta was outstanding. We got a free coupon for this $15 appetizer when we signed up for canoe lesson. The grilled octopus and ahi tuna apps we also divine. Nice experience. Limited wine choices although I was happy with my Justin from CA.

Ka’ana accommodated two friends who joined us at the last minutes. Nice casual atmosphere with good selection of appetizers and small plates which we shared. Cheerful efficient service. Wine list seemed overpriced but probably a product of being in Maui. I would recommend to friends.

We stayed at the Andaz Resort and this is the Hotel's restaurant. It was really great for a hotel restaurant. On the expensive side but everything we had was great. The breakfast buffet is awesome and will make you leave out lunch for the day. Dinner was great too.

While staying at Andaz for a vacation week, we had all of our breakfasts and several dinners here. Extremely attentive, friendly and efficient staff. Luke, our waiter at breakfast, was particularly helpful. We met the chef one evening who was also very warm and informative. While quite expensive relative to other similar restaurants, we felt the menu was well chosen and the food very fresh, well prepared and interesting. We have small appetites and the portion sizes were just fine for us but I can see that someone who had been kayaking or paddle boarding all day might find them a bit small. If you are a sumo wrestler you might be able to take advantage of the pricey but spectacular, extensive breakfast buffet but we were very happy just ordering from the nicely varied a la carte breakfast menu. All the local hotels in Wailea seem to have similar prices but we preferred the atmosphere at Andaz. Ambiance and sunset views are marvelous. Local live music from the bar drifts up to the dining area balcony.

Beautiful restaurant at the Andaz. We had a lovely table on the patio overlooking the pools. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. Had about 7-8 plates + 2 desserts between 4 people. Food was highly inventive and showcased local producers. Good meal but quite pricey.

This one hurts because it started so well and then ended so poorly (i.e. we got RAW chicken). First, the good. The sesame noodles, watermelon salad, Kona clams and Roasted Eggplant were amazing. And the mixed drinks are the best I've had on the island. But then came the Fried Chicken.

At first, they looked good, but then my wife noticed that her chicken was RAW. Yes, totally RAW in the middle. Cold and pink. And my wife had already taken a bite of it.

They were apologetic brought us a new one, but that's tough to get over. Ultimately, the server, who was fantastic, did comp us the sesame noodles for our trouble, which was nice. But I wondered if it would have been more fair if they comped us the chicken, which was twice as expensive.

And, to top it off, turns out the table was dirty and stained my pants. Sigh. Could have been a great experience, but it's tough to want to return after that.

My wife and I have been to the Ka’Ana Kitchen at lest five times. Mostly for our Anniversary. We flip from Oahu where we live and we can’t wait to dine at such an amazing restaurant. This time we were bringing my wife’s brother and sister in law who were here from NYC. We’ve been raving about the superbly creative French / Hawaiian Farm to table menu. And they were not disappointed since they compare everything to NYC and Paris. The Restaurant itself is awesome. A totally open kitchen where you can walk around and watch the chefs create unusual and special I creations. The seating whether on the Lanai or in the dinning room is over the top comfy. An excellent wine list which every waiter knows intimately and can help you marry the wine to the dish. The following are some of what we ordered.

Grilled Octopus
big island chevre, watercress, asparagus

Kona Clams
ulu, venison chorizo, daikon

Lobster Creole
rainbow chard, longanisa, tomato butter
jasmine rice chips, nori vinaigrette, kohlrabi

Kaua'i Shrimp Risotto
kula corn, saikyo miso, XO sauce

Wagyu Hanger
thai basil, green papaya, peanut

Berkshire Pork Belly
taro, pineapple, ogo

Their wine list is quite good and extensive. Each waiter comes prepared to help you marry a wine with their
awesome France meets Hawaiian farm to table ingredients.

We had the seared tuna belly for starters, it was OK, but not really super fresh. Our seabass entree was too spicy and the wagyu strip loin tasted like ordinary beef. The wine list impressed with its selection and shocked with the prices. The restaurant does not come up with what we expected from our Andaz experience.

For context on this review, my boyfriend and I ate here on New Years Eve when they had a four course prix fixe menu for $175 per person. In short, the meal was bland, boring, and in no way worth the cost.

For our first course, both of us had the fried oysters. They took nearly 30 min to arrive and were overcooked and rather flavorless. For the second, my boyfriend had the grilled octopus and I had the shrimp. This was the highlight of the meal for both of us. The main course he had was grey snapper. It was blackened and acceptable but in no way original in its preparation. I had lobster, also acceptable but largely bland. The desserts were equally unremarkable.

The highlights were the wine advisor who recommended an excellent Pinot Noir that paired well with dinner, although that bottle and pretty much the entire wine list was overpriced by about 25%, even for Hawaii. I also ordered a second glass of champagne a la carte after the complimentary glass that came with dessert. It was terrible AND $29 per glass.

I have no problem paying for high quality and unique dining experiences. This was neither. Maui is packed with other dining experiences that are less expensive, more authentic, and of higher quality. Avoid this place.
