Very busy but we made reservations and got in at the time of our reservation. My husband and I had the fish specials. Excellent. And of course the hula pie for dessert.

Burnt ribs, so so prime rib. We had fish on our last visit and it was ok. This time was disappointing.

We had great service and good food. I wish we would have found this place sooner, this was our last dinner on the island. The prime rib was perfect.

This was the 2nd time we dined here during our two week vacation in Kauai. The ambiance of an open air restaurant tucked in a tropical forest with a pond, waterfall and burning tiki lamps was first rate. The food was simply superb. I particularly loved the twin lobster tails, uniquely prepared and bursting with flavor. The waiter was both entertaining and very attentive to our needs. If that was not enough, there was entertainment with a Hawaiian singer and beautiful hula dancer. My wife and I are foodies from New Orleans and we know good food and service. To me this is the best restaurant , at least in the southern part of the island, and we have eaten at all the other major restaurants since being here that were also highly recommended. This restaurant was the only one we had to return to while here and we may even go again before we leave. Need I really say more?

The food was incredible, the service was personal, and the atmosphere was exactly what I imagine when I think of dining in Hawaii. Complete with Tiki torches and all.

All three of our entrees were skimpy on vegetables. My entree was monchong which was on mashed potatoes and it came with three pieces of broccoli. Yes three. The other entrees were steaks with two pieces of asparagus on each plate. Many will agree with me that skimping out on the portions.

Ordered an expensive filet mignon that was undercooked.

They replated it after it was brought to attention that it was undercooked but overall it was a disappointing meal and the beef itself was subpar at best.

Came to celebrate a birthday/anniversary. Our server fouled up the server and the cake celebration was a mess...but the food was fantastic. So glad our whole party was pleased with their food as well.

This is a restaurant that can definitely handle families and large groups. Four of us went here and we had two fish, one steak and one prime rib. All were very good meals. The steak was asked for with fries and the plate was brought with mashed potatoes. Kevin, our server, noticed as soon as he put the plate down and went back to the kitchen for a plate of hot fries. All in all we had a great time and would go back.

Service was friendly and efficient. Ambience was kitchy Hawaiian, but that is what we expected. The food was average and the quality was poor. Bland sauces, grey over cooked fish, and the farm salad was wilted and the beets and mango were so small they dropped to bottom of the plate. Even the poke bowl was bland, with the exception of the bites that had a slice of jalapeño in it.

Surprising good food for a "theme" type restaurant. Our waitress steered us to the Monchong and it was excellent. We had 3 monchong's prepared the 3 different ways they offered and ALL were good! The entertainment was nice...food really really good and great drinks! We will definitely be back!

Food tasted really great, although it did confuse me to not see a burger on the menu, yet see sliders on the kids menu. We went for dinner at 7:00pm(not sure if that’s why) but they really didnt have much on the menu. My daughter is older but didnt see anything on the menu she wanted so she got sliders off the kids menu. Although we had a few troubles with the menu, the waitress was very sweet and the food was outstanding!

Very fun "island" experience. It is a little more Disneyland than Hawaii, but the kids loved the fire and fountains and the seafood was delicious. It's really quite good, even if it is a bit over the top with what outsiders think Hawaii is supposed to be like. The staff were an army of service and curtesy. Very nice overall.

Sunday Easter buffet was equal to what you get at the free Fairfield Inn breakfast. Only difference was the prime rib. Take a pass on the breakfast buffet.

There are a limited number of high end restaurants on Kauai, especially South. Kioki’s is a solid option for a special evening out. Restaurant is very nice (no ocean views however - Duke’s best option for that). Food is very good and prepared properly. Not a cheap meal (none are on Kauai), but cheaper than Merriman’s (which has become exorbitant in my opinion).

Food came too slow. Waited a hour drinking until the entree came.

Price too expensive. Went to Hukilau Lanai the day before. They had salad and bread included in the entree price.

Live Music and atmosphere was good.
