Great atmosphere! Food was excellent! Our server was outstanding!
The best dining experience we have had on the island, staff is great and the food is fantastic as well as the ambiance of the restaurant... live music performances were well played. The most enjoyable evening meal we have had on the island just like our last trips Keoki’s is by far the best
Again better than Any other restaurants we have been to on the island way better than the Bull shed and 500 times better that the pretentious Merriman’s Or Ruth’s crist or hotel restaurants
I made reservation to this place through Open Table. Since my family and I were vacationing in Kauai and the occasion of our visit to this restaurant was most consistent with “special occasion (certainly not “Everyday dining”, “Date”, “Business meal” or “Friends’ get-together”), I checked “Special occasion”. When we got our table, we were pleasantly surprised by a card on the table that read “Enjoy a Hula cake on us for your celebration”. Our waitress Mara asked us what we were celebrating. I answered that being in Kauai for vacation was a cause for celebration.
After enjoying a good meal in a nice ambience, we ordered dessert. Since it appeared that we were getting a Hula cake on the house, we ordered that free Hula cake and a sorbet. What we did not expect was the waitress’ response; “I am going to have to talk about this with my manager. Celebration usually means something like birthday. You are not celebrating anything.” She turned around and walked away angrily without waiting for my response. She then reappeared with a sorbet and the Hula cake. After explaining to her why I marked “ Special occasion” in Open table reservation without expecting a free dessert, I expressed my displeasure with her response. Her response was “It’s OK. I talked to my manager and he said it was OK”. She did not apologize how offensive her attitude was. I declined to accept the largess from the restaurant.
A few minutes later, a stone-faced man (manager) appeared and he demanded to know ‘what was going on here’ without introducing himself. His tone of voice was confrontational and he was not ready for discussion let alone apology.
The food and ambience of this restaurant were quite good. However the management seemed to fall short of properly training its staff that befits the quality of food that it served. That unpleasant encounter ruined my family’s otherwise a great day in the paradise. I still tipped as I do not return a pettiness with another pettiness.
Excellent food - great service. Loved the music in the background which was at an appropriate volume so we could still talk. So good we went back the next night for drinks. Highly recommend!
It was awesome, great place
We loved the live music and setting—the food was good. The waitress was fantastic. We had a great evening.
Had a great experience! Food was delicious—and Paul, our waiter, was very personable and efficient. Thank you!
First the service was GREAT , the food was FANTASTIC and the music was very fine with a great sound and some fun tossed in as well. We were advised by a friend to go to Keoki's for a special 30 th. anniversary meal. The night was one of the best we have had in 30 years. A BIG THANKS TO ALL AT KEOKI'S FOR MAKING OUR NIGHT SPECIAL !!! C & J Moore , Chemainus B.C. Canada
Celebrated wedding anniversary here, food and service were excellent, highly recommended.
Food was great. Service was great. Entertainment was great. Love coming to Kiokis
I read other reviews which made me want to try this place. It is a bit on the pricey side but worth it. It was for my sister-in-laws birthday. The chefs recommended multi-course menu is great but I am glad I had the Ahi (rare). It was delicious. Besides the main courses being amazing the presentation was very nice as well. The spinach and artichoke dip appetizer was a good choice before the dinner. The calamari for an appetizer was very good but not exceptional. The only reason the rating is not 4.5 is the service did not match the food. The guy was nice, but was not very attentive. Still ... I would go back again.
Tasting menu was very good. Fresh muffins instead of bread were an unexpected treat.
Lovely setting, great fresh fish options. Nice drink selection and attentive staff.
This was our second visit. Everything was as it should be. Short wait/excellent server who could answer?/
wonderful table location/DELICIOUS food and what else can we say? Don't forget your HULA PIE!
Delicious food, attentive service and a free slice of Hula Pie on your birthday! There was live music and hula dancing. The ambiance is wonderful.
We enjoyed our dinner at Keoki's Paradise. The food was excellent and there were so many fish options it was hard to choose. Our appetizers, fish and steak entrees, were delicious. Our server was attentive and wonderful at making suggestions. The entertainment included a musician and a hula dancer. It was the perfect addition to the surroundings which was outside with a pleasing Hawaiian garden. I will be back if we find ourselves in Kauai again. Thanks Keoki's Paradise for a great night!
Love everything about Keoki’s! The menu, the ambience, the service! And especially the macadamia crusted monchong and the hula pie. We always go at least twice to Keoki’s while on Kauai.
Great atmosphere in a garden setting. Live music. Service was good.
I have been a number of times and was really disappointed with the quality of food. Fish was over cooked.
Easy to reserve through Open Table with no wait. Friendly staff, great food, nice atmosphere with pleasant live music. Made an anniversary celebration special with complimentary Aloha Pie!
Really good food! Was very happy with all our selections. We had crab cakes (some of the best we’ve ever had), fresh fish and the banana creme pie for dessert! I’m lactose intolerant and have never seen a dessert that was dairy free at a restaurant besides sorbet so it was a pleasant surprise. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive too! They also had some great local musicians playing live music as well!
Excellent!!! Highly recommend!!!! Great service, excellent food, and fun entertainment!!
Keoki’s is always a special place for us to dine. We had dinner there to celebrate our friends’ 85th Birthday, and their 60th Anniversary! I had Majung fish and it was delicious. The other had the ribs, which are always a favorite. Thanks for a great evening. Had lunch there today with other friends.
Good food. Friendly service. Very aware of any allergies and any special food requests.
Great food & service. Went twice while on vacation in Kauai!
My boyfriend & I went on a dinner date this past Friday evening. We had a long day at work, didn’t want to cook & we just wanted to relax. we got stuck in a corner next to the walk way / stairs, servers kept banging into his chair. Then, my boyfriend got puked on by a drunk guy sitting with a big party next to us, it went all over his legs. mind you no one in that party managed to say sorry or anything. Our server Kimberly was awesome! she managed to get us moved & comp’d a few items. I live on the island and have been coming here for over 10 years mwith my family, It was just a bad experience for us.
Our server was awesome. He was super attentive, took his advise on our entrees and desert. All was fabulous. Best fish I have ever eaten.
Enjoyed the selection of seafoods. Staff very friendly! Food was great!
Really nice place - great food! We’re going back before we leave
We had a nice anniversary dinner here in August. The open-air setting is great, the service was wonderful and the food was quite good. (The "Hula Pie" is huge!) The entertainment during our evening was excellent too. Would definitely go back for a special occasion!
Excellent fresh fish.
Food especially the fish was awesome. Service fantastic. Great value.
This place was amazing! We went to dinner for our 10th anniversary and they gave us a complimentary dessert which was the hula pie and it was excellent. Our meals were incredible, The service was impeccable and the drinks were also very good. Highly highly recommend!
Great food and service was outstanding
the food was good but the restaurant feels very commercial and institutional. We will not go back for these reasons. Better choices in smaller locally owned locations throughout the island
We had a great dinner our last night on the island. Our server was amazing and we enjoyed a local playing Hawaiian music from the different islands.
We also were there for the “Chef’s Tasting Menu” which included appetizer, entree and dessert for a great value (before 5:30 pm!) We’ll be back!!
Restaurant mentioned our special occasion by the hostess and comped us a dessert. Server Jesse was professional, fast and very responsive. Food was very tasty yet priced at the 3 $$ category not 2 $.
The place is beautiful--sort of an upscale tikibar vibe. There was live music, which was quite pleasant. Our server, Kevin, was phenomenal. The drinks were perfect (Kevin made sure of that). The food was outstanding--ordered the fresh fish dishes that Kevin recommended and were impressed with both the presentation and pallet. Next time on Kauai, we'll be back for more. Thank you for making the occasion that much more special!
Great food and ambiance. Only regret is we dined here on our last night in Kauai because we would have dined here again. The calamari was the best I’ve ever had and the prime rib was excellent. My son has peanut and seafood allergies and the manager served his plate and explained how they prepared his dish. A nice touch that was appreciated. The service was outstanding, definitely coming back!
I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. Cute Hawaii atmosphere, thatched roofs and semi outside seating. Some of our party loved their meals, personally I think the teriyaki sauce is way too sweet. Drinks are okay - overall a consistent meal and nice service.
Keoki’s is a great combination of succulent food, friendly wait staff, & casual dining. We especially enjoyed seeing a small cat wandering through the outdoor seating area.
