Keoki's Paradise Ratings and Reviews
Really fun place to dine! We both tried the fish and agree that mine was outstanding - Mahi Mahi “keoki style.” My husband got the ahi, and while it was very good, it wasn’t as special as mine. A bit expensive, but we dined in the main dining room. You can choose a more casual option which I believe comes with a different menu. Would definitely dine here again!
I love Keokis. Its gotta be my favorite restaurant on the island. The Prime Rib is the best i've had anywhere. The Crab Cakes are fantastic. I've never had anything that was less than amazing in my 30 years of dining there. Even the rolls are amazing. Highly recommend that it not be missed by anyone visiting.
We have been going to Keoki's Paradise for more than a decade and have never been disappointed in the food or the service, whether there have been just two of us or our family of 11. But the music in the main dining room was just too loud and intrusive. It made conversation (for the two of us) impossible and was downright annoying. The noise level might have been ok for a concert venue but not for dinner background music.
The food was great and our server was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were seated fairly quickly despite how busy they were. Our sever, Paul, greeted us promptly and with a high level of energy that he maintained throughout the experience. He had lots of helpful suggestions and was especially knowledgeable about the local fish. Best of all, he was able to share all this info without it feeling invasive, a rare talent. The food was delicious. We had the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer. It was perfectly warm, gooey, and balanced, plus the chips and garlic bread served with it were superb. My husband had the filet, which was cooked perfectly and plated on top of a cream, well seasoned pile of mashed potatoes. I forget what the thing I ordered was called, but it was two kinds of fish prepared two different ways with a starch and a veg, all Chef’s choice. It was amazing. My husband, who doesn’t like fish, liked everything on my plate. The Ono was so tasty. He said he liked it as much or better than his filet. The white rice was cooked perfectly. The sauces paired perfectly with the fishes. Delectable! We were there for our anniversary and they treated us to a Hula Pie. I can’t eat ice cream, but my husband loved it!
The food quality is very good. The restaurant is a neat place that is very visually appealing. My only comment was that the food service is slow. Our server was extremely nice and accommodating, but it took a really long time to get our food. Overall it’s a great place.
We have eaten here many times. The quality of the food wasn’t good and my fish came out raw. The second one they brought me didn’t taste good and didn’t have the sauce on top. The waiter was the slowest person ever. He tried to be comical but he was offensive instead.
Even with a reservation it took a bit to get seated. We were in Kauai at high tourist time, so that could have been the reason. This restaurant is LOUD, so if you have anyone who has hearing issues, beware. The food was pretty good, not excellent by any means which was kind of a bummer considering the place is pricy. My vegetables were room temp, the fish was pretty warm, not hot. Hula Pie for dessert is a great passing dish for the table.
