Service was a little slow but in Hawaii who cares? Great fish preparation and the dessert trio was sublime!

We are staying at the Four Seasons and decided to try an off site restaurant. Based on reviews, we chose Ko. Big mistake. Obscenely overpriced - more expensive than Spago, which is far better in every respect. The food was bland and the decor was what you would expect at a 3 star hotel coffee shop. The server was over solicitous and tried hard to steer us to the “oishi sushi” appetizer - which is actually lightly fried fish, not raw sushi. The kids chicken dinner was disgusting, I wouldn’t feed it to a dog. The fried rice was loaded with MSG and my fish was very over cooked. I rarely leave a review, but feel compelled to provide others with fair warning about Ko.

We ate at Ko for Valentines dinner. This was by far our best meal on the island. There was a great selection of unique hand crafted drinks. Our service was impeccable. We were addressed by name by all staff which is very hard to come by. We very much appreciate good customer service and this went above and beyond. The breads and appetizers were unlike any other we have had. Well plated with good portions. Comes highly recommended.

Great food. Great service. The food was excellent and service exceptional. Even as rain approached, it couldn’t dampen the evening.

The wait staff was very pushy, rather than attentive. Appetizer came so quickly it arrived before I finished any bread then the main course took awhile. The shrimp were overbattered and soggy and there was enough sauce to dip maybe 2 shrimp. The short rib was flavourful and fresh but the risotto was watery. I ended up opting for dessert and when I chose the Brown butter banana cake the wait staff *told* me - not asked -that an extra scoop of ice cream would be added. No surprise I was also charged for this ice real that I never asked for and it is not listed or stated on the menu as extra. The cake was not at all what I expected. It was dry and tasteless though had a nice crunchy texture. It had no flavour at all. There was a sliver of banana and a single smudge of caramel on the plate that was more for appearance than flavour. I would say the dessert should be renamed tasteless dry brownie like cake with subtle hint of banana and caramel/brown butter on the side. Lastly this has been the most expensive meal to date on my trip and was way overpriced. I had room service with 3 courses in my neighbouring hotel that cost less than half of the cost of this meal even after tip/gratuity and service charges. Seeing some hotel guests where this restaurant was located coming into the lobby with groceries tells me they must also prefer not to eat at this restaurant when staying there.

I enjoyed my time there. Molly the waitress was so efficient and friendly.
I was annoyed when I got an email lecturing me for not showing up. I checked in I don't know what happen. I felt invisible.

We went to Ko after reading Yelp reviews. The menu was extensive and our server Luis was great! The food was good, but not outstanding. It just seemed a bit ordinary even though it was high quality (with correspondingly high prices). Still an enjoyable evening in a beautiful setting.

Researched a lot for our anniversary dinner on Maui. The service and food at Ko was the finest we have yet encountered on our extended trip through the islands. Our server Hannah was beyond exceptional and the Zarzuela seafood kettle now sits atop our "favorites" list. Definetly reccommend

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Maui. As a full time resident we see resort dining restaurants come and go with mixed results. Ko has established itself as a great dining experience with an expansive menu with something for everyone, excellent food and service. I highly recommend giving them a try!

We went here for our one upscale dinner while on Maui. While it was by far our most expensive meal, it was by far the worst. While other tables were offered a wine list and bread, neither were offered to us. We had to flag down our server to try to get a second drink and plates were cleared while others were still eating. Our food was mediocre at best, overcooked and did not match the menu description.

Outstanding! A beautiful setting (of course!) and very creative dishes. We only went once during our short time in Maui, but will certainly be back. The service was also outstanding, very knowledgable in terms of the menu and wines.

We ordered appetizer sampler that was tasty and dessert sampler that was also tasty. Our main entrees were hit and miss. The seared ahi tuna special was cooked perfectly but the vegetables were in a very salty sauce. The plate had no crunch and no freshness. The opa in miso butter was overcooked and dry with little flavour. The sauce was delicious.
