    Elena was our server and she was fantastic! The food and drinks were great. We tried the appetizer sampler platter, NY Steak, Scallops, and Halibut. All the dishes were flavorful and enjoyable. The Hula Pie was amazing, as well as the Pear Martinis and Chocolate Mint Martinis.

    Great service and environment. Do reserve ahead of time. The waiting would be more than 1 hour otherwise. I made two reservations of 2 and 3 people for my 5-person group, and got a large table when we arrived to merge. Food is fine. A nice place for holiday meals.

    This was a mediocre meal at prices that were high for what you get. My fish was overcooked, my daughter’s filet was overcooked. Our server did no more than serve and ask what we wanted until she gave us our check. I was here in the summer and had a better experience but this is not a four and a half star restaurant.

    We were promptly seated as they texted me our table was ready before we even arrived. Nice touch. Our server was very attentive and someone was always coming by to fill our water glasses. We ordered the crab cakes and ribs for appetizers. The crab cakes and the remoulade they came with were absolutely delicious! I will let the fact that my son’s ribs practically vanished on the spot speak for itself. My daughter ordered a sushi roll, I had the mahi-mahi and my son and husband ordered steaks. Everything was very tasty and was plated in a very appealing way. We even made room for crime brûlée and bread pudding for dessert…and again both winners! This place is a high recommend from our family. We had some spotty service in our week in Tahoe but certainly not from here. We look forward to dining here again on our next visit.

    Our server Juan was exceptional and attentive. Our food was delicious. But the hostess seated us in the corner next to the kitchen so ambiance was dark & meh, waiters rushing pat our table every 3 seconds. Juan helped by providing a candle. It was our wedding anniversary.

    The positive 1st - the food & service was OUTSTANDING. Great value for the food, even though it's pricey - it's in Heavenly Village - it's supposed to be pricey. The real complaint I had is my husband ordered a "double" for his drink, and a "double" is not actually a double shot but they charged us for a double shot. It clearly was not a double shot (did not even take up 1/2 of the rocks glass with ice). They charged us $43 for the drink. When we asked for the manager, she was very defensive (not understanding nor apologetic). She treated us like we were trying to get free stuff, which was not the case at all - we're grown adults with 2 kids just looking to celebrate a nice Christmas dinner while on holiday. She took our bill back and when she dropped it off again, she literally dropped it and said, "I took 10% off your bill & that's the best I can do." It was just offensive and abrasive. We didn't ask for anything, just wanted to point out the issue. At the end, 10% was $25, so that did take care of what the value should have been for the drink, but it just wasn't handled well.

    Perfect. My wife and I are locals and wanted a little break from the family festivities of Christmas and we're looking for a nice restaurant so we decided on Kalani's instead of The Chart House. Fun atmosphere, great service and tasty Hawaiian food for Mele Kalikimaka, perfect. We'll be back again soon, Aloha

    Went on a Tuesday night. Ordered 1 drink and main dinner entree. It took 1hr and 30 min to just get my entree served. Unacceptable. Next table arrived and was eating their entree in 30mins. Just fess up and be honest my entree went to another table. Don’t order sushi it took about 50 min for each order. I would not recommend for the service and or the prices charged for entrees. Its just disappointing and not worth it to return to this restaurant ever!
