This was our first time to Kauai Grill since it opened. We did have a late reservation request so we were seated away from the view but that was understandable. Fortunately we had a nice booth. Prices were higher than what we found on the web site by about $10 more per dish.
The rib eye special was very good. Serving size was big but please note that no sides come WITH the dish. Potatoes or rice is all an added $10 to $13 more. The onaga was delicious but again no side dish; everything is ala carte. With one alcoholic drink, 6 side dishes and 3 entrees, the total came to $304. Once the crowd comes in, it's very hard to hear due to the acoustics in this room. Our server M. Knapp was very nice and courteous.

Very expensive for À la cart dining ! Our party of six was seated up against the wall and not any atmosphere whatsoever. We were given one basket of bread and one small pack of butter between six people. I’d rather drive 22 miles to JO2 and spend my money there for a better dinners experience at a fraction of the price.

 (Houston)·Dined on February 8, 2018

Restaurant was clean and well appointed with a beautiful and dramatic ocean view. Although we are not staying at the St. Regis, the staff was welcoming and accommodating as it was our first night in Kauai and we arrived about 15 minutes earlier than our requested reservation. Food and wines were generally excellent and well presented (Surf & Turf, Broiled Onaga, and Ahi Tartare), although for my taste the avacado puree was a bit tart and overpowering for the fish. Service was very good but not exceptional as they seem to struggle with striking the right balance of being adequately attentive but not overly interruptive. Prices are high as expected in this type venue and upscale resort. The bottle of white wine we selected was priced over 2.5 times the retail wine shop price. Unexpected perk: No charge for valet parking although tipping the attendants is recommended.

We enjoyed our meal at the Kauai Grill. The service was outstanding. The cocktails were very good. We did the chef’s tasting menu. The green bean custard amuse bouche was yummy. The first course was a spin on shrimp cocktail with delicious horseradish panda cotta. The second course was seated foie gras-not my favorite but my wife loved it. Third was butter poached lobster. Very good. Fourth was beef tenderloin. We added truffled mashed potatoes. Excellent. We finished with the chocolate dessert with pistachio tuiles. Delicious!!

We had the tasting menu which was outstanding! Hard to choose a favorite. Very pricy but worth it for a special occasion. The service was uniformly warm and professional. I'll have a drink at the bar upstairs while I'm saving for my next visit.

We enjoy going out for a good, often expensive, dinner once while we’re on vacation, but this was Very, very expensive. Too expensive for what we ate. Almost $400, with tip, for two shared salads, four entrees, one shared dessert, and two glasses of wine. Food was good, but not that good. The view is gorgeous, but next time we’ll just go for drinks and enjoy the view that way. Would not go back for dinner.

I had the squash and lemongrass soup which was excellent. My husband had the AHI Poke which was also very good. We both had the signature MahiMahi on the recommendation of our waiter , which was very good with an interesting sauce. We had a side of ginger rice and finished with the salted Carmel Sundae
Our waiter was very friendly and attentive and the busboys and servers were right there as needed.
The room is beautiful and gave opportunity for relaxed leisurely dining. The prices are high , which we expected.

We enjoyed our meal, but expected a little higher end food for the price and the hype of them pushing a Michelin star chef. Service was mediocre throughout the night. We had a nice evening, but feel like this is miss represented- definitely more of a high end steakhouse menu and feel than anything.

This was a repeat meal at Kauai Grill, a place we have enjoyed several times over the years when visiting Kauai. As usual, it did not disappoint. From the starters to the main dish, straight through to dessert, we were thrilled by every item. The flavours were exquisite, the service (we were lucky enough to have Frank, who is excellent), was thoughtful, and the ambience was perfect. We highly recommend this restaurant for anyone visiting the Garden Island!

Attention to detail was poor. We were served sliced wonder bread to start our meal. The manager tried to make up for this by sending us some desserts which was appreciated. However, service took so long and our waiter was essentially absent the entire time we were there. Also, The filet mignon was served without being sauced and the waiter hadn’t even noticed.

Wonderful fish and steak choices, but the reason we ate there two nights in a row was due to the varied vegan and vegetarian options. Extremely rare in a fine dining establishment.

We went to Kaui Grill for our Christmas dinner with our kids (teens). It was a wonderful atmosphere and the food was delicious. The portions were substantial and the presentation was elegant. My husband and I had the tasting menu and each course was better than the last. Our daughter had the black pepper octopus which was overall our favorite! We loved our server and her candid advice and information. It was a great experience!

The staff at the St. Regis are wonderful as well.

Booked through Opentable, Dinner at 12/24 around 6:00PM, Christmas Eve, 8 people, we ordered 7 set menu(5 courses) $145/PP, plus one main course from the regular menu.

Pros : Service was good. staffs were all very friendly.

Cons : The food from set menu was totally unacceptable, scallop and ravioli were pre-cooked then put sauce on top, came out warm to cold. Ravioli was especially bad, It was hard, tasted like leftover. We made complain to our waiter, then the beef course was ok. Desert was also a mediocre. The one course from regular menu was an average.

The restaurant was VERY noisy and loud. More like a sports bar instead of a high end dine place. Definitely not worth the money.

BTW, don't be fooled by the restaurant picture, only the few tables by the window have ocean view.

During our week long stay, We had dinnesr at several other restaurants -- Merrimans Fish House, Tidepool, Hukiau Lanai, RumFire,Eating house 1849 and Keoki's Paradise. All those were excellent at probably half the price, better food and better ambiance.

We ordered the Christmas special five course dinner. The shrimp appetizer was superb in taste; so was the faux gras. The Kona lobster was delicious together with the Weigu beef filet. The desert was out of this world.

I had indicated on our reservation (through Open Table) that we were celebrating 2 special occasions with our extended family who had gathered in Kauai from 3 different U.S. mainland cities. The manager personally greeted us upon arrival and seated us at an AWESOME private outdoor table with a magnificent view. The manager, the sommelier, and our server were all fantastic... and the food exceeded expectations. An expensive evening but worth every penny. Highly recommend Kauai Grill at the St Regis!

We love Jean-George restaurants so wanted to try this for an anniversary celebration. We were too late to enjoy the view which forced us to see the tired and dated decor. The food was excellent, the service was very good (although a little “hang loose”). It was an overall nice dinner but way overpriced for the serving size. We’ve eaten at great restaurants around the world and are not afraid to spend big money. But the value wasn’t there! Maybe it’s worth it with view. So maybe prices should be reduced after sunset? We live on O‘ahu and visit Kauai often. We won’t be back to this restaurant due to the prices.
