Kimo’s has become a factory chain. The service confusing and very impersonal, they only want you to get the most expensive items and be done and out as fast as possible. The fish over cooked and rather bland the side vegetables were served lukewarm. It is a shame that with such a beautiful location, they can’t do a better job!

Outstanding food and service. Our server, Graham, was the best out of all our dining experiences on the island. Known for their seafood, their Filet was fantastic. We will be back!

My husband and I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly!! We got a table upstairs with a beautiful ocean view. Our server was knowledgeable and took great care of us. My kids had the shrimp pasta and they raved about the sauce. My other son had crab cakes for his meal which was pretty small but pricey. He said they were just ok. We overall loved our visit!

We really enjoyed dinner at Kimo’s. The food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly and nice. We had items off the Chefs tasting menu that is only offered for a short period of time each day. It’s a smaller portion (but wasn’t really that’s small) and well worth the cost.

Fantastic location and atmosphere. Everytime we go to Maui, Kimo's is one of the places we go for dinner. I recommend going just prior to sunset & making a reservation as it's a popular spot. The food is solid with wonderful appetizers and a wide selection of seafood with a couple of beef/pork options. The service is always top notch with knowlegeable and courteous servers. Then the Hula Pie is a must to finish off your meal! My only complaint with Kimo's is that they removed one of my favorite items off the menu a few years back - Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi - otherwise one of my top 10 on the island!

海を見ながらの食事はまさにハワイを感じさせる気分になり気持ちが良かった。
オーダー、食事の提供とスムーズでストレスなく食事ができた。
ランチタイムだったので、パンケーキが食べれなかったのが心残り。また行きたい。

Food was bland across the board for four diners, really nothing exceptional at all. Drinks were common. Service was good. Paying for the prime location on the water.

We sat on the upper deck at a table close to the water. We watched the end of the sunset and all the boats. It was a very romantic setting. Our server was very friendly and made some great suggestions. My husband and I shared the baked fish Kimo style and coconut shrimp. The food was delicious!

The meal at Kimo’s was fantastic! The Triston lobster tails are a must! Everyone at the table got something different, from fresh fish, shrimp pasta, steak, ahi and the lobster and everyone loved their meal.
Service was great, food was fantastic and the views were incredible!!

We love eating at Kimo's. It was a warm day but we were seated in a shady spot and watched the waves crash while eating all our delicious food. The poke stack was a nice starter along with the calamari. The shrimp and crab salad was a big hit along with all the fresh fish options that were ordered.

As a guest, I did not feel valued. We were seated at a table near the water, and during sunset crowds of other dinner guests disrupted our evening by taking photos of themselves during sunset. At one point in the middle of my meal, some one had the audacity to ask me to take a photo of his family while I was mid bite. It was tactless and the management did nothing to manage the situation for dinner guests on the outer edge.

One of my favorite places in the world. Try to go after the sun starts setting - it gets hot out in the deck, but the staff do all they can to accommodate. You’ll love it.

Kimo's has dropped in overall quality. Try somewhere else.

The location is great on Lahina waterfront... nice sunset views. I suspect this keeping them going, because the food quality has declined, significantly. You can get a much better meal elsewhere. Try Lahina Grill or Paia Fishmarket on Front street(casual)

We highly recommend Kimo’s. We ordered the kimos style mahi mahi and the coconut crusted mahi mahi and both were excellent. The seafood chowder was also very good. A trip to Kimo’s is not complete without ordering the delicious Hula pie. We recommend sharing the enormous slice between 3-4 people. The restaurant gets very busy. We had an 8:30 pm reservation and still had a 10-15 minute wait. Also, street parking is non existent and the off-street parking lots are a $10 minimum.

Our server very clearly loved his job. He seemed happy to explain the menu, was concerned about our enjoyment. We had a lovely experience. We had to wait a bit for the reservation. But were given a table in the open air portion of the second floor. It was lovely.
