We went with another couple for their first time. The atmosphere is very nice. We had an issue with the wine. The other couple ordered a very nice bottle of Cabernet and were told they were out and they ended up ordering a bottle that was 60$ more. There was no comparable wine to the one that was out. We then ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and were told that they were out of that bottle. We ended up paying $40 more. We asked if there was anything the restaurant could do to compensate and we were told no. The food was very good but very pricey as our bill was over$650.
If you have deep pockets and money is no object sure go for it. We expect a wow factor $250-$300. Meal per couple. We felt it was way over priced for the ok fish special. Expect $16. glass of wine and a $30. Apps and $60. Specials. Did not like their payment procedure, handing you a mobile credit card machine and only giving you a tipping option off 20, 22 and 25%. Handling those machines aren't very sanitary after everyone has handled them.
Every dish was absolutely amazing and the service was impeccable.
This is our go to place for a nice meal in Maui. Price point is high, but so is the quality of service and food. Hands down the best service experience every time.
We always spend our first night in Maui at this classic and elegant eatery. Richard is an outstanding and interesting person to request! He makes the evening even more special and watching the salads being made while enjoying a gin and tonic....perfection.
Initial “brand ambassador” was Ron who filled our water glasses while stoking our appetites for all that a great dining experience should be. Great guy and over the top friendly. Not to be any less gracious, Michael the waiter with his cool red-framed readers, was equally passionate and professional. Now to the food....wow! The Maui onion soup, Caesar salad, trio-appetizer and daily fish special we’re all amazing. The restaurant dining room has an old world charm and is meticulously maintained. You won’t find a speck of dust in the Hunter Original ceiling fans, a single smudge in the mirrored walls or a scrape on the carefully painted wainscoting and trim. Be sure to ask for the story on their executive chef and his humble beginnings at the restaurant. It’s a story that can only be topped by the culinary delights coming out of his kitchen. There are lots of hard surfaces in the dining area, so noise levels are a bit more elevated...a small price to pay for all else that is so great (service, food, atmosphere). Certainly not the most economical restaurant you can visit in Maui, but I rank the value received commensurate with our spend. We’ll definitely be back!
Note to reader. I only write restaurant reviews when a place is really really good, or really really bad. This restaurant meets the first of these criteria.
Our entire experience was amazing- our sever, Buddy, was attentive and so easy to get along with. The food and cocktails were outstanding. The owner stopped by each table and the entire staff went out of their way to make our celebration the best it could be. Was the highlight of our trip- highly recommend!
Excellent restaurant! Great service & food. Always enjoy a dinner there when in Maui.
This was our 30th anniversary dinner.
Our server Buddy (or Betty) couldn’t hear, was amazing!!!
Lovely dinner to celebrate our anniversary. They gave us a complimentary picture and desert.
Amazing experience, excellent food, great service and attention to detail.
Amazing place and our server Logan was incredible everyone was bringing there A game
Thanks so much we will be returning 🥰
Excellent food and excellent service. Servers were very observant - my water glass was refilled several times without having to ask, the food portions were perfect, and the drinks weren't watered down.
We'll be back.
we are on honeymoon and we've got the best service ever!
A definite must if you are staying in the area on Maui. Food and service was outstanding and beyond expectations.
Delicious food. Nice people. We had the land and sea specials. They were fabulous. We will return to this restaurant.
Nothing but outstanding! Everything we had was amazing, the service was outstanding. Would highly recommend. Only draw back is price, it is an expensive meal- but with every penny!
Not one for reviews but this one deserves it!! We loved EVERYTHING we had, I am already looking forward to going back! Buddy was our server and was the most wonderful person! You must, must come here!!
Every item from drinks to appetizers to deserts were perfectly prepared and very, very tasty.
This place was so good we went two evenings in a row. The service was amazing and the food was some of the best we had while in Maui. While it’s not cheap it was so so worth it.
Our reservation was too late at night, so we decided to sit at the bar area and order. Our waitress/ bartender, was the most professional and pleasant server we’ve ever seen. The drinks were great. The Ahi poke a bit too gingery but nonetheless was the best ahi. The beet salad was great, the dressing was just the right amount. The presentation on every dish was beautiful especially salads. Worth every penny. What a memorable night.
The decor was lovely. The service was beyond wonderful. The food was outstanding. I got a special birthday dessert and a commemorative picture. But if you are looking for a romantic setting, skip this restaurant. It was so boisterously noisy, my husband and I could barely carry on a conversation! Overall, I think it was an extremely expensive night that could have been more enjoyable (thus worth the price) had the ambiance been more conducive to conversation. I don’t hold the restaurant responsible for loud (rude) guests, so I won’t subtract any stars, but just be aware of this negative aspect.
Expensive as expected but dis pointed in food
Special of the day fish was over cooked . Unfortunately my wife did t say anything until after I tasted it and realized that problem. The lamb chops were good quality meat but the sauce was a bit overpowering.
Not what we expected at this price point
The wait staff were great!
Wonderful food and service by Lisa and Ron. They get to know you and make you feel welcome. The food was excellent. We like to come here every year when we are in Maui.
Birthday & anniversary every year. We love this place
Food was well prepared—had the arugula salad, Maui onion soup, seared Ahi and the special. All met expectations. It is a loud space but we still enjoyed the experience.
Great food, service and surroundings!
Food was beautiful and delicious. Service was top notch.
Loved the cake walk trio appetizer. Our favorite restaurant on Maui.
Lahaina Grill is always a treat. The service is wonderful and the food is a delight for the taste buds. The jasmine rice with vanilla bean sauce is out of this world delicious. The triple berry pie is close your eyes and groan delicious! This is our "must do" every time we come to Maui.
Great food. Excellent experience. Wait staff was so wonderful answering all our questions. Super nice. Best restaurant meal we have had in a long time. Extra special was the sugar free crepe brûlée.
Love the Lahaina Grill! In my opinion they are tied with Mama's Fish House for the best food on Maui. Staff is amazing and friendly.....Food and drinks are all spot on!
This was our favorite and best meal ! Scott our waiter was superb and made our dinner very memorable. We can’t wait to go back again!
Great food. Scott was an outstanding sever who loved his job.
What an unexpected surprise! Didn't really know anything about the restaurant... Just a friend's recommendation. Everything about this place is top notch. Service was amazing. Mike was our waiter. Not sure I've ever had better! I overheard him say he'd been there since'96... A true pro. Food was spot on perfect. So delicious. Incredible wine list. Super prompt food prep. Absolutely nothing negative to mention. I would highly recommend!
The service and selection were outstanding. We had the ahi tuna and the short rib as our main dishes. So delicious! We also had a carrot soup and crusted goat cheese salad. Again, delicious. Even more, the service was outstanding. We were in a hurry to get to a show and they helped us be on time without compromising the excellent service and class. The photo and card helping us celebrate our anniversary were very thoughtful!
The noise level keeps this from being a five star. Almost could not talk to the one other person in my party.
You need to muffle the sound...
carpet, baffles, enclose the bar. Separate the rooms which have been blended.
Fewer tables soft chairs.
Richard is an excellent server! I highly recommend him as well as Lahaina Grill!
Our waiter Buddy was the very best waiter we’ve have ever had. Simply perfect service. The food was a 10. So happy.
