Ate here our first night in the island. Service was a bit slow especially considering at 8 pm the restaurant wasn’t that crowded. Regardless our waitress was very attentive and the food was excellent as always. I’m sure we’ll be back there again during our stay here in Kauai

We made our reservations online about an hour before our meal and was seated immediately. The waiter did a wonderful job describing the different seafood meals. Everything was delicious. I chose the dual fish dinner and my hubby chose the prime rib. The prime rib was so tender. You wouldn't know you were sitting in the middle of a shopping center. There were so many plants, I felt like I was in a tropical forest. We were entertained by Hawaiian singers.
We would definitely return to this restaurant when visiting Kauai.

Great time. We were seated right away and requested a spot near the front where the band was playing. Service was outstanding. We had drinks served very quickly and correctly. Our server was constantly checking the table
To make sure we were set with both drinks and food. She asked about food allergies and even checked anything we ordered to make sure we would have no problems. Definitely the best service we’ve received on the island

THIS place is worth the drive and worth the cost. Yes... it will be expensive (though they have a relatively inexpensive 4:45 to 5:30 "Chef's menu" that was actually WONDERFUL!!!). At any rate... of all the places we visited for our first-ever trip to Kauai, Keoki's Paradise will absolutely be the place we will come back to if we visit Kauai again!

One of our SPECIAL stops for the family whenever we are on Kauai. A must-do for the best seafood on the Island. Great decor, wonderful fish offerings, and often a nice live band behind the bar. Young 'uns at the hostess desk could mature up a tad.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. Service was amazing, our waitress Sofia was attentive, prompt and our little one loved her. She took the time to chat with her and even checked right off the bat if we had any food allergies. The food was great. The entertainment was wonderful and added to the ambience of the place. Great for families and friends.

We always make this restaurant our first and last place to eat on the island. Gotta have that Hula Pie! But this time was extra special because our waiter (forgot his name) and John gave us excellent recommendations on hikes to take, and gave us "inside" information on what's best to do while on the island. Not only was the food excellent, but so was the service! It was more than just a meal, it was making new friends. I love that they didn't treat us like a tourist ( which we were), but treated us like invited guests! The restaurant management is smart to have hired these personable employees. That seafood risotto was out of this world!

Very well prepared fish, great setting, mix of locals and visitors to the island, which also shows it isn’t just a tourist trap. Great cold beer system for well drafts. Service was outstanding, would definitely return.

We loved Keoki's Paradise so much that we ate there twice in a week. All the fish dishes we've tried were very fresh and excellent. We particularly loved the Seared Ahi and Steamed Monchong dishes, and their Hula Pie is to die for (and if you keep your receipt, you get either a free Calamarie appetizer or a free Hula Pie on your next visit, good within 30 days)!

Staff are friendly with excellent service. The restaurant is open with a view to to beautiful garden. Both times we were there they had a band playing (different bands), the music was pleasant and not too loud.

We would definitely go back on our next visit to Kauai.

One of my favorites in Kaua'i. Food was delicious and very interesting. Ambiance was super cool and fun. You would never know you are in a shopping center. I don't usually go to shopping center restaurants but this place is definitely worth the trip.

We had reservations but arrived a little early, so we went to the bar for a drink. The bartender was friendly and helpful, drinks were reasonably priced, and the atmosphere was very nice. After we had drinks at the bar, we ate on the restaurant side. The service was good and the food was decent. I would go back but would probably eat in the bar next time.

We were celebrating my friend’s wedding, which was to take place 2 days later. We chose this place because it was near our resort and looked like it had good food. When we first went in, they said they had to seat other groups first. I reminded them that we made reservations earlier that week because we had a busy schedule. After some time passed, they finally sat us down. The bride and groom to be ordered some drinks and we started talking about the wedding plans. We started noticing that the tables around us were being served their drinks, but not us. 25 minutes passed, we had our appetizers and still our drinks didn’t arrive. We asked our waitress why it was taking so long and they said the bar had a back up of orders. We mentioned that others were being served there drinks even though they arrived after us. Finally, they came to take our order and we asked about our drinks again. The groom to be wanted to make a toast to his bride to be. They told us they didn’t think we needed to be drinking since we were already hyper and in a celebratory mood.

I’ve never been so embarrassed by an establishment in my life. In fact, I was embarrassed for them. Why would a place with such a stellar rating be so rude and demeaning to patrons they’ve never had interactions with? I’m deeply disappointed by the treatment we got at this place.
