Great location, beautiful sunset views with open air dining. Casual dress but great for a romantic dinner for 2 or a family celebration. A favorite when in Maui!

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!

Great food and views. We timed for the sunset and as it progressed it just got more & more beautiful. The staff didn’t rush us out.

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!

It was a lovely restaurant with the sea view. Food was good but not worth the money paid. Famous for being famous. Everyone will go there in Maui as it’s ‘the place’ to go. Not really worth it. $95 two mains and 2 standard drinks. Service was really good though, cannot knock that

The Kimo’s style baked fish was full of flavor and cooked to perfection. The side dishes, however, the rice pilaf and the mixed vegetables, were a little cold.

Okay, nothing special. Drinks just okay. Seemed better a few years ago. Had the fresh Mahi and they would only let you get 3 of the preparation, but not the one we wanted. Ahi was good, soup was delicious. Never got to eat upstairs even though we had reservations
