We fell in love with Kimos during our honeymoon 36 years ago and it keeps getting better! The service,food, and atmosphere are unsurpassed! Kim’s has everything one could want in a Maui dining experience from casual to elegant, you can’t miss here!

The food and service were good. I had the filet, which was perfectly cooked, but a bit too salty. My husband had fish, can’t remember which kind and it was good. The biggest problem was the music. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the singing was a distraction. She did not sound good at all.

We had Kimo Style Mahi and parmesan crusted Ono. Both were good, we liked the Ono better, probably because we life milder fish. Also had the coconut shrimp appetizer (wonderful). We should have skipped the sugary cocktails. They are expensive, tasty, but, like at every place else, you're paying for a glass of colored sugar with a splash of alcohol. Beautiful views. Will go back.

Kimo’s was a wonderful experience for everyone in my party. Both fish dishes and the steak were exceptional, as was the beautiful view of the sunset from our table. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Maui!

We had reservations set 2 months ahead of time and asked for a table as close to the railing as possible. We were seated on the upper deck, 2nd table in from the railing and had a beautiful view of the sunset. It was perfect. I had the lobster topped mahi mahi and my husband, the parmesan crusted ono. Both were delicious. We go to Maui at least once a year and Kimo's is always on our list of restaurants to visit. Thank you for a lovely last night dinner in Maui - it was delicious!

We switched our dinner reservations at the last minute to Kimo's and we are glad that we did. In order to get prime sunset seating, we waited in the bar area, had lovely drinks, and were so impressed with the view that we almost chose to eat in the bar. After about 15 minutes our table upstairs was ready and we are glad that we waited; however the bar area still is a good location. The view was outstanding! We must have hit one of the best Maui sunsets! People were running over to our table to take pictures of the marvelous sunset; our location was that good! The other diners were not obtrusive, just everyone in the restaurant was so friendly and thrilled to be there. The wait staff were well informed and helped us make good dining selections. The seafood was amazing and local! About the time we were finishing our meal, live music started to play in the bar. It was a fabulous experience. We suggest making reservations about 45 to an hour before sunset and be willing to wait a little while to secure prime sunset seating. They explained that a reservation secures a table, but prime seating is what is available at the time. No matter, most of the seating is excellent. Kimo's is great and the sunset made it even better.

Great food, great views of the ocean. We went at 4:45pm and it wasn’t busy at all, even though we did have a reservation. Husband got the kimo’s Style local favorite and I got the Parmesan crusted. Both amazing. Great service too!

The steak and wedge is the best value in Hawaii- the “prime sirloin” is more tender than a filet mignonette- $19!!!! Incredible value. And I am a local kamaaina!

Didn’t want to try another place we hadn’t been to before, not on our last night on Maui. Have been coming for years and iKimo’s has never disappointed. Mgmt has established a model for service that seems to work very well, for them and for the customer. Their signature dish is wonderful!

Kimos never disappoints us. We had the Prime Rib which was so good.
Hula pie if course, was amazing. Cocktails were yummy. Service here was top notch. Sarah was so cool and we enjoyed ourselves. She took great care of us.

Our visit to Kimo's was just as memorable this time as it was five years ago on our first trip to Maui. My husband had the Prime Rib small cut and it was "huge" - he thought they had made a mistake and gave him the larger piece!! I had ribs and they were delicious - Thanks for the memories

Dinner starts at 4:45PM and we arrived at 4:30PM. Our experienced host of 38 years was able to seat us in the front row overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Needless to say, we ordered at 4:45 PM and got the best poke at a very reasonable price. After an hour, we noticed that the entire seating area on the bottom floor was filling up quickly. We were rewarded by great food, server, ambiance, and view. I'll be back!
