Service is outstanding. Recommend asking for Anela to be your server. She is outstanding and accommodating to your dietary needs. We have been going there for over 9 year and have always had a great dining experience.
This restaurant has a great view, you will have to have an RSVP and come early to try to get the best seating. We were not at the window but still has a decent view.
Everything that we had was excellent. They had a vegetarian and vegan menu, which was delicious. I was able to find both an vegan appetizer and entree.
Best spot on Kauai. Hands down. Just do it. You will not regret it.
The octopus was outstanding
Service was attentive and informative
Very very loud- difficult to hear the person next to you. People did not adhere to dress
Code - baseball hats, flip flops, etc
Tasting menu was very good except the wagyu which was cooked to medium rare but was tough and difficult to cut.
Food was great and service was excellent. Restaurant was a little dark for my preference and could use some better lighting. Wine list was extensive however prices were shooting for the stars. I would come back for sure.
I’ve never before experienced scallops that were served cold for two and like warm for three with cold mashed potatoes, However, just to add injury to insult, I was still charged the $48 for the worst entree I’ve been served in years.
We ordered the signature chef menu for approx $145 pp. We were a bit skeptical, being a hotel restaurant and being such Michelin food snobs. Every dish of the 5 courses was delicious. Sweet shrimp, fois gras, lobster, wagyu beef and dessert. We also had a nice premier crus chablis. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Start at the terrace bar for sunset cocktails. Notice we can’t remember the dessert.
Nic experience. Quality, local meat, prepared well. Great service.
Outstanding dining experience. Best high end restaurant on Kauai.
Birthday dinner for my wife. Had a table and not a booth as I had hoped, but was not disappointed. Was still very private. Service was excellent. Very accommodating with any modifications of the menu to suit our desires. Good wine list. Food was outstanding.
Waiter repeatedly disappeared. Had to ask other staff to find him more than once. Frustrating as he lingered at first to ask each of us if it was our first time there. I said no, and my friend lived locally. Still, he stared at me and asked if I was in “the other day” after I’d said last year. I visit annually. The host argued with me that there were not two tasting menus clearly printed on the right side of the menu and said it was a typo. Really? Better training of this staff would be appreciated. Food was outstanding as always. View not to be missed, even on a cloudy day. Service disappointing as I should to have to beg others to find our server in a hotel like the St Regis.
This was our first time at the grill and decided to go to celebrate our friends birthday. What an amazing meal! My husband and I both ordered the Surf & Turf. It was the best lobster I had ever had!! Drinks were also very good. Our waiter Dusty was very informative and friendly.
The building is very impressive with a spectacular ocean view , unfortunately we had a cloudy day so we didn't get to see the sunset.
My only complaint would have to be the lighting, very dark so it was difficult to read the menu. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to have fine dining.
It was great!
Had a great time.
Fantastic service from Frank, thanks mate!
Good but too expensive for what it is. Acoustics are terrible and it feels like a massive cafeteria instead of a high end restaurant.
The octopus was quite spicy without enhancing the flavor and many of the other flavor combinations seemed to clash.
We were looking for a very good meal and I think we had it, but the air of superiority of the staff put us off.
Kauai Grille is great for any occasion as well as special occasions! We go there always when we are in town.
Awesome service from our server billy, great experience and food was awesome and very delicious a bit pricey but worth it. Will definietly go back!
We had a wonderful time. The service was excellent and so was the food. Very creative.
Wonderful food, perfect ambience, and great views of hanalei bay. The staff is wonderful and attentive. We will definitely be coming back.
Our dinner at the Kauai Grill was fantastic from the moment we were seated. The appetizers presentation was beautiful and the flavor was as excellent as their appearance. We started with the spiced chicken samosa which was very tasty. We also had the Kailani Field Gathering and Shrimp salads which are large enough to share. The flavors were fantastic! Three of us had the "nut & seed crusted Maui mahi" which I would highly recommend. The dish was done perfectly and the portion was very sufficient. One guest had their special which was a sea bass dish prepared with a an Asian chili sauce, the spice was perfect. I highly recommend ordering a side of their ginger rice. Wine selection was superb and our waiter knew his wines very well especially for pairings. It is a bit loud, but that seems to be the norm with most restaurants. The view is beautiful so I recommend requesting a table by the window especially for the sunset.
When we return to Kauai we definitely will be returning to the Kauai Grill.
The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and the cocktail drinks were amazing! We took our friends there when they landed on the island!
I loved the food, and the service was impeccable, but honestly the ambiance was terrible! there was weird pop/rock music playing and the restaurant was LOUD! i mean loud enough where we could barely have a conversation!
Beautiful setting, good food and service. It was noisy however. There was a table near whose patrons were yelling at each other
We actually had a nice meal at Kauai Grill.... we left the cost of the meal on our room by signing the check and giving our room number, and leaving it on the table.....you can imagine our surprise when our waiter ran after us and suggested that we tried to leave without paying!?!?! WHAT? Even if something had happened, it was just weird having him suggest that we were trying to avoid paying the bill! There were numerous ways he could have handled the situation, but instead he suggested something like that? We are in our 60’s, do a lot of travel and dining out and have never run into anything like this. Too bad. He really ruined a lovely dinner for us.
This was a special evening for my girlfriend and myself. it was our last night on the island & happened to be her birthday so I wanted to make sure that I took her some where special. Everyone for the valet staff to the SA made sure that our evening was top notch. the dinning staff was on top of everything without feeling like they were on top of us.
Kauai Grill is always special. We’ve been to Kauai twice and eaten at the restaurant more than once per visit. The service, food and ambiance are great, but nothing tops the views of Hanalei Bay. Definitely the most upscale experience we’ve had on Kauai.
Beautiful location with outstanding service. The food was good but the prices were outrageously expensive and put a damper on an otherwise beautiful experience. A cup of soup cost $15 and a small piece of fish cost $48. The fish came without any sides; it was just a small piece of fish for the whole meal. A glass of wine for $22 (that would cost $12 elsewhere......)
Great! Good food, great views and friendly staff.
Great view and food was excellent. Wait staff was very personable.
Epic service. The staff is very attentive. Mahana stands out as distinguished in polite service.
Horrible service, sat forever without drinks. Finally ordered wine and did not have what we were looking for, they did substitute a better bottle for same price. Manager knew we were upset with whole evening tried to be nice to us. Food horrible and over priced. Would never dine there again. We did not want to dine there based on review. Had dinner reservations somewhere else but possibility of closed bridge made us go here, so bad.
Excellent food and very good service. View is amazing at sunset. However noise level is very high
The manager and waiter was excellent. We were very disappointed in the prices and quantity of food. The prices are extremely high and the portions are very small. My husband ordered a lobster and it had very little meat on it. I ordered fish which were to come with potatoes and edamame beans. There was one small bite size potato and 3 small beans. The fish was small too. We stayed at the St Regis so it was very disappointing.
We decided to spend the money and try the chef's tasting menu. HIGHLY recommend this place if you are willing to spend the money for a phenomenal food experience. Wine list is solid and the sommelier/manager really knows his stuff.
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.
Sunset dinner- the view was amazing and the waitstaff were engaging and efficient. Food was pricey but delicious.
