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.

Our server took 25 min to take our order. Returned 15 min later to advise the items we ordered had sold out. Didn’t refill our glasses the entire time or check if we were ok.

This is a must visit in wailea. Creative, fresh twists on Hawaiian classics. And all the wait staff were super helpful and professional. Service was perfect. Highly recommend it.

Great location, service and food. However, the prices are not realistic. Way too expensive and does not encourage a second visit.

Wow! Another fantastic dinner. This time our granddaughter joined us so we decided family style would be the best approach. The staff were great in accommodating us and we “cleaned” our plates for every course. Our 13 year old gave dinner “two thumbs up.”

We stayed at the Andaz and had dinner here as well as breakfast twice. Dinner was very good, but forgettable. The breakfast buffet however was the best I’ve ever had and a MUST if you are in the area. They have SO many options and everythingwas delicious.

Love the concept. Waitress was pleasant but hurried with explaining the menu; which is vast. Cocktails amazing and strong! Kids menu absolutely blows! Understood it’s an upscale restaurant but you could cater a bit more to the families- need more options (peanut butter and honey, grilled chicken and macaroni and cheese are the only choices for kids). I had the lobster and it was delicious. Dessert was scrumptious; coconut cake and ice cream- yum! Resort prices.

Cool restaurant. Excellent appetizers. Risotto entree was v good. Local catch entree was disappointing, Undifferentiated flaky fish, somewhat dry accentuated by anchovies. We were gluten free table - substitution was offered but ultimately not available making for small portion. Could be excellent if it had worked.

Overall the food was excellent and our server was delightful and very educated on food/ingredients/preparation. Most definitely the best “foodie” experience in Maui. I especially loved the wine expertise and gentleman that helped us select a bottle.

The noise level is very high so it’s not the most romantic ambiance but they boast of a family-style kitchen vibe and Ka’ana felt like that.

A personal note to the restaurant: we were 12 minutes late for our rezi and had called three times en route but got a voicemail, and then arrived to find they’d pulled our name from the list. Your hostess was rude and sighed when we asked if we could still get a table, and it was especially frustrating to wait 15 minutes only to see several open/unoccupied tables as we were seated. Also, our booth bench had not been wiped down and had a clump of long, black hair on it, and there were dropped utensils and napkins that had been missed when the table was cleaned (we actually noticed the same thing under the table next to ours that had just been bussed and wiped down).

And lastly, it was 10 pm and we were one of two tables left but the staff seemed really eager to leave and so we felt rushed and opted out of dessert. And although we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and your staff knew that, Ka’ana was the only restaurant all week that didn’t offer up something to celebrate. Although we were full and happy, Spago, Humble Market Kitchen, Monkeypod, Manoli’s, Ferraro’s, and Pacific O all surprised us with a complimentary card, treat or dessert, and that little gesture went a looooong way in capping off our dining experiences.

Seems like they’re trying to be over the top fusion, but simply miss the mark, resulting in over priced, mediocre meal. Lobster entree was over cooked. Tuna appetizer was very good.

Drinks and food were tasty but a bit sparse for the high prices. Drinks were $25 per cocktail. Waitress had no idea about special drinks that were highlighted on the Today show. And it turned out that the bartender made a substitute that was good but nothing like ones highlighted. Nice setting and free valet parking.

Menu is interesting with thoughtful presentation and preparation. Hanger steak and ahi poke small plates were outstanding. Also had the fish of the day and fried chicken which were also great. Pleasantly surprised. John, our waiter, made us feel very welcome and he made our night with his expert and friendly approach. Highly recommended.

Our dinner for 4 was mostly very good. Particularly the tuna belly- it was a hit. Two of us did get the cajun lobster. That dish was described as an entree but it is not. It does not come with sides and it is half a lobster tail and one claw so it is more of an appetizer than an entree. Plus even though it tasted fine, it was not at all cajun. Besides this disappointing lobster, all other apps, entrees and desserts were very good.

Our server Chris was very accommodating. Explained menu since it was our first visit here. Did not expect Asher, bartender to come and talk with us about his craft since he had a special drink made for the Dads. Even extended a recipe for the ginger beer made in the restaurant.

We were gonna leave to go to Humble Kitchen but Chris

We loved the Ka'ana Kitchen. Our waiter was a 10 out of 10 - friendly but not too much, knowledgeable about the menu, funny, and considerate. The food was great - you have the chance to order smaller plates which is a nice change of pace from the constant $40-45 entrees in this resort area. Share a dessert - you will not regret it. Fun, lively, and cool. The hotel itself was fun to visit, too.

Our greeters were genuine and welcoming—plus gave us options for seating inside or out...every table had a sunset view, with live music that added, not deterred from conversation.
Our server Lex anticipated our relaxed vibe, and intuitively let our dining experience unfold at our own pace. She is an incredible person. She always offered assistance with menu choices without being automated or overbearing. She showed genuine Aloha.
Our handcrafted cocktails were a highlight ...Archer is a true craftsman who excels at all his many talents! The cocktails were infused with local grown herbs, designed artfully by his passion for excellence.
Jackie from the bakery enclove delighted me with a bday dessert ...signature coconut chocolate sundae along with chocolate ganache puddled in a lilkoi goop I’ll always remember. The entire experience was exceptional...and I am grateful Maui has a restaurant of this caliber. Thank you Andaz, Mahalo Nui Loa to the masters in Ka’ana Kitchen!
