going at 545 pm allowed us to enjoy the sunset; its multi colors hades of yellow against the gray clouds. Sat one row beyond the railing so didn't need to fight the patrons searching for the "right" photo. Food outstanding, particularly the fish dishes.

Celebrated our 23rd anniversary. Waitress attended to our every need. We were 10 mins late and apologized. They never made us feel bad about it and gave us the best service possible regardless of our tardiness. The food was the best we’ve had on the island so far. They even brought out a huge ice-cream pie with fudge and an Oreo cookie crust completely on th house in celebration of our anniversary! We will spread the word that this is the best place to eat in Maui! Mahalo!!

My whiskey was the smallest poor I have ever received. The server told me the poor was 1.25oz very very light
The server was not very energetic. We like a server that makes some conversation. Ours was a "dud"

The food was mediocre and the view was not appealing. Restaurant was not flexible to substitute mashed potatoes for healthier vegetables without upcharging. Overall, not worth the price tags.

We wanted more fresh fish before we went back to Colorado and got several recommendations for Kimo's. We were so happy we went. Started off with a remarkable Caesar salad. They make their dressing and every ingredient vied for your taste buds with nothing overpowering another. Plenty enough for two to share. Then I had the Ono entree. The portion was enormous, enough to give my hubby a big share to taste the exquisite sauce. The fish was perfectly cooked, meaty and flakey. He had a ginger based sauce on grilled fish. I liked mine better but am not a favorite of sweet sauces. The homemade kimchee is outstanding. They make a carrot muffin that is fabulous. Moist, rich in flavor and so good you could eat a half dozen. Like every good island restaurant Hula Pie was on the dessert menu. Way too big of a portion for two, we left some after giving it our best shot. This will be a "must" dinner spot the next time we are in Lahaina!

We’ve been here many times before and usually have great meals. This visit was not up to par. Over done fish and one meal not enjoyed or eaten by the birthday girl. Normally at this caliber restaurant host would have offered a new entree.

Because they ha e need really good in the past will give them another chance.

Outstanding service. Drinks were very good. We had a terrific view. Food was good, but didn’t seem good enough for the price. I’ve eaten meals for the same price and have been blown away while this was simply just “good.” We still had a great time time and enjoyed the meal, just too much money for a typical dining experience

The view and ambiance was excellent. Service was great. The food was fairly ordinary, simple and plain for the kind of prices they charge. Most of the dishes were not that special. The only this we would go back for would be the Hula Pie. Now, that was good !
