Full weekend brunch, lunch, dinner menu, sushi, and full bar served daily.
Baby back ribs are always delicious.
This was our second visit & we did not have the same server
The service was not very good, my dinner was cold when it arrived. We were celebrating a birthday! No one except the hostess acknowledged.
Covid required that our parties be seated outside...everything was wonderful and our waitress Marissa and the support staff did everything to make us comfortable. It was the highlight of our trip!
The food was good, service was fantastic. Our server was professional, efficient and
Nice!!! Dessert was fantastic! Quality of food was great!
Always good food. Our appetizers took a long while but food was delicious; as always!
Jackie was also really good. Thanks!
We dine often at Kalanis, the food is always fresh and perfectly prepared.
We had the heavenly roll for an appetizer, we split the heavenly salad with
beets and a washbi dressing, I had the mixed seafood grill and my husband
had the sea bass. Both entrees were delicious! Our only complaint was they
were out of Hula pie, my husbands favorite dessert. Oh well we will have to
Incredible seafood. Definitely spring for the Chilean sea bass.
My husband and I visited Kalani's for a theme birthday celebration date night. It was fabulous. I ordered the filet and the Heavenly salad w/a blue cheese substitute dressing. Both items were flavorful, plated attractively and quite delicious. My husband ordered the sea bass and clam chowder. He loved his meal, as well. For dessert, we enjoyed the birthday torte. Elena G. was a fabulous waitress!
Great food and great service!
Had reservations for 5:30, server took our order for appetizers then told us the special which we decided to go with, however she came back 20 min later to inform us that it is not offered that day... she should have know that before she told us about it. then, when we said we will order some sushi rolls, she informed us that will take at least 30 minutes due to the happy hour happening outside, thus we left there hungry
Such a wonderful place! We look forward to dining here every time we visit Tahoe. Always have such an amazing experience, and they didn’t disappoint! So glad we got to share our favorite place with our friends. Service was over the top wonderful. Food was absolutely delicious! Thank you to all the staff for making our dinner spectacular!!
Best meal we’ve had in Lake Tahoe. We can’t wait to come back again
Kalanis is always great. Staff is always kind and professional. Food always great😍
Wow, where to begin. When you say you have a special ingredient in a dish you really should be able to taste it...ie. truffle oil in clam chowder or encrusted crab on Mahi-mahi. Asked for lemons that never came and a Mai Tai that tasted like a rum screwdriver. They were nice enough to swap our the Pesto mashed potatoes (huh)?with goat cheese and truffle oil potatoes. Skipped dessert to go over to Hells Kitchen for Sticky toffee pudding...YUM!!! Date night saved... Yeah!!!
Tali’s was amazeing thanks so much
I can’t give any type of rating on the ambiance because we requested to be seated outdoors . I have eaten here before and the inside of the restaurant is very nice .
The food is quite delicious, sushi rolls are all good , shrimp ceviche was yummy . Happy hour is a great value .
Got the scallops that the waiter recommended. So awful. Not even cartelized or worm.
Vary nice atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. The food presentation was amazing and the value for the $ was pretty right on. Vary satisfied with our dining experience.
Fantastic dinner! Our group all ordered differently, seafood, sushi, steak, lobster bisque. Every item was delicious. Our server, wish I could remember his name, made our trip. The customer service was FABULOUS! We will definitely return.
Great sushi and other fare. We always love this place, but this time the service was impeccable! Our waitress went over and beyond! She was efficient, friendly, fast and just awesome! Ask for Kayla when you go.
Outside dining was great!
The food was amazing. The craft cocktails were amazing! Our server Talis was awesome and friendly. I would definitely return and recommend to friends and family!
Had the Chilean sea bass. Was excellent. The mashed potatoes were an odd green color due to basil and other items that were added. Wife has seafood grill which was also excellent. If I were to get the sea bass again I think I would ask to sub the the spuds for risotto.
We have been to Kalani’s many times for dinner and it’s always been fabulous. We went to brunch for the first time and totally loved it! I had the Loco Moco Benedict and my hubby had chicken Katsu for lunch. It was like being in Hawaii which we miss so much! I can’t wait to go back. Great food, great service and a little bit of aloha in SLT!
Amazing food and drinks! Our server was wonderful, shopping area was a little busier than imagined. However, our meal made it all worth it
Awesome! They did a great job with covid-19 guidelines!
Wonderful server that gave an excellent recommendation to a speak easy near by. That finished a off the evening of a perfect meal!
The sea bass is amazing!
Family dinner while on long weekend in South Lake Tahoe. Wonderful dinner. Great service.
We had a fun waiter and amazing food and value. Great experience! Be sure to order that kalbi (Korean short ribs) that are not listed on the menu!
Excellent service and the food was exquisite. We come here every year and have never been disappointed.
I would not have expected a Hawaiian vibe at the base of Heavenly but Kalani's delivered in all areas. Great atmosphere, service, food and drinks. We went with a group of 7 and everybody said they had a phenomenal time.
Kalani’s was an absolutely incredible experience. We hit happy hour for drinks then had dinner. The sea bass and ribeye was amazing. It’s a bit expensive but that’s expected. Well worth it.
An Outstanding Dining experience! Every plating was exceptional. Thank you for doing things right!
We had made the reservation many weeks in advance for 7. We were celebrating a birthday and had mentioned that at the time of the reservation. We were seated in the noisiest section right next to the bar. You could not hear anyone that wasn't seated right next to you, nor the waitress. We ordered drinks and the two people who ordered their signature Mai Tai were both terribly disappointed. At this point I warned the front desk that they should expect a very low evaluation because our experience started so poorly. The manager got involved and moved us to an area right by a kitchen entrance door - not perfect but quieter - there probably is not a quiet area in the entire restaurant though. Meals were good to very good, though over priced therefore the low value rating. They never recognized any birthday - I wonder why they ask on the reservation if it makes no difference. They did not charge us for the two Mai Tais and in the end we had a good experience, but it shouldn't take so much effort!
We truly enjoyed our meal, great flavors, good quality food great service
My family used to love this place. We were so excited to come back for dinner we booked back to back reservations 2 nights in a row. The first night they sat us down took our order, provided us with stale wafers like you get in communion at church (no more bread), then didn’t return for 40 minutes. When we finally asked a server what was taking so long they said one of their Friers was done? Not sure how that affects the sushi, salad, sea bass and mixed seafood grill we ordered??? It was almost an hour when they finally brought out all our food at one time. The sushi tasted fishy, the fish didn’t have much taste, but the mixed grill was ok. We cancelled our reservation for the following day due to the disappointing evening. What a let down!
The food is outstanding. Great flavor and just melts in your mouth. Prepared very well.
