View was spectacular. Food was excellent and unique. Even so, it was really the service that made our night perfect. I have been to tons of restaurants all over the world, was a server myself and legitimately Frank (Francis) was the best server I have ever had. Thanks for that Frank.

Our evening here for my birthday was flawless; engaging wait staff and perfect table to enjoy the sunset.
At the appropriate moment our server, without being asked, escorted us outside to the balcony and took several great photos of us framed by the sunset, mountains, ocean and clouds.
My fiancé’s ribeye was the best, as was my opakapaka.
A wonderful complimentary dessert and excellent champagne concluded our memorable dinner.
Highly recommend!

The view at sunset was unbeatable. Background music was quiet enough to permit easy conversation. Our waiter Sequoia paced our four course tasting with wine pairing to perfection. We initially questioned the pairing of a pinot noir with the lobster course, but the seasoning of the lobster made it work. The food was excellent and the portions ample. We did not go home hungry.

Requested a romantic table when booking and hostess addressed our special occasion when checking in but then proceeded to seat us at the worst table in the place.

Appeared they give preferential treatment to hotel guests, so just beware if not staying there.

Our last night on Kauai we wanted to have a special meal instead of the typical food truck, tiki bar dining. The Kauai grill did not disappoint us! The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. The views are spectacular of the Pacific Ocean and coast line. The sunset was visible this time of year so lots of people got up from their tables to take their pictures out on the terrace. The chef’s preparation of the dishes we ordered was perfect. There was also an amuse bouche and a glass of champagne provided compliments of the chef. I had the surf and turf done perfectly. My husband had the local fresh catch and really enjoyed the preparation too. The seating allows for private conversation. Definitely will go back!

Staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very special on our anniversary. They went the extra mile to celebrate the special occasion, but also to wish my wife a happy birthday as well. The food was just as amazing. We had the chef's tasting menu and it was honestly one of the best all around meals we have ever had. Thank you!

Amazing views and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, Service and Food Quality were below expectations. We had the 3 course menu. Starters however, arrived before we had our first round of drinks (which we ordered only 15min after we had sat down...). Main course (fish and beef) were alright. Dessert (ice cream) was a nogo. Overall it was not great experience. There is better places with better food and service in or near Hanalei. I would recommend taking a sundowner at the St. Regis bar and to have dinner somewhere else.

Beautiful place but very warm sitting by the windows to see the spectacular sunset view. This restaurant needs shades to filter the sun. Music at times was way to aggressive for this high end atmosphere. Signature dish was the Maui Maui and it was over cooked.

This restaurant has beautiful views of Hanelai Bay. They do not have any type of shades so it was beyond bright in the dining room before sunset. The service was good. The Mahi Mahi was nice and light. The tuna was quite good as well. The salted Carmel Ice Cream sundae was good but needed more chocolate sauce. Very pricey for good not fabulous food.

The restaurant looks like it has not been refreshed since the 80’s; oddly dark after the sun sets. Not one bit of food was better than mediocre. 50 bucks for three tough and dry scallops. Kaua’i is wonderful, but this place needs a rethink.

The staff are very attentive and friendly. This was our second time at the Kauai Grill and they did not disappoint! Both times we had the tasting menu. The shrimp dish with horse radish panacotta was amazing. We also loved the foix gras with beets and anis jelly - a combination we didn't expect to love but absolutely DID! And our other favorite of the evening was the beef. It was so incredibly tender and delicious it melted in your mouth. We chose to get the wine pairings - but I'm not sure we'd do it again. The red wine with the lobster course didn't go well together for me. Next time I think I'll order glasses separately to accompany a few of the dishes. But the other wine choices were great.

The Kauai Grill wasn't quite as spectacular as we thought, but it was most enjoyable. The scallops were wonderful; my filet was a bit over cooked. Service was good. Prices are high.
After dinner, we very much enjoyed the upstairs bar/cocktail lounge. Service was excellent, as was the entertainment.

It has been our anniversary tradition when we're on Kauai - fine dining, good views of the sunset and Hanalei Bay, and a very expensive evening. The food is good, not great. Same with the service. I keep making the reservation, and the dinner is consistently good. The hotel public areas are beautiful, and the evening is fun overall.

Unfortunately my husband and I couldn’t make it before sunset so we didn’t get to see the view. The restaurant inside is nice. Nothing too special without the view other than a fancy restaurant. But the food was amazing! Probably one of the best meals we’ve ever had and we’ve dined in a lot of fantastic restaurants over the years. The Japanese sea bass was out of this world!

We wanted one “fancy” dinner while on vacation with our family in Kauai. We requested a view of the bay which we got. Unfortunately it was a dreary, rainy sunset but the view of the hillside and waterfalls was still nice. The food here was tasty. My teens couldn’t get over how “small” the food was because they are used to casual family style places. We all enjoyed our meals. Just be aware the sides are separate and can add up quickly in cost but are good for two people to share. That said, this place is not for the budget conscience. The ambiance is quiet and dark. The decor is that of a hotel restaurant. It seems like they could do an upscale island feel to match the hotel theme. Our server, Chris, was attentive. Staff was friendly. Overall, it was a good experience but nothing specific to the island or special. Probably wouldn’t return unless we were staying in the property and we wanted the convenience.
