Excellent food with delicious flavor profiles. There was live music the night we were there. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and the chef took the time to come to our table to make sure we were happy with our meals. Don’t miss the bananas foster bread pudding .

Nicely presented meals. Sirloin and short ribs nicely sauced with good vegetables. Chef working hard to provide top presentations. Banana foster bread pudding was truly awesome. Servers including Jacob the bartender were friendly, helpful and just nice people. We saw the manager later at the gas station and she treated us like longtime family friends!

FANTASTIC little treasure on the island.
We dined outside and the heat lamps made our outdoor dining comfortable. Food was amazing. Brussel sprout appetizer was delicious. Beef short ribs melt in your mouth. Our server Arlin is a wonderful , kind & humorous guy. Entertainment was great. Can’t wait to return and experience the remodel of the restaurant.

The chef was awesome about accommodating vegetarian preference and came to our table to make sure we had a good experience. We ate there two nights in a row. The first night was inside and noise level was quite loud, the second night we sat outside and listened to live music. Ambiance was great! Have eaten there before and look forward to going back.

First time on Lanai. Went with local friends. We sat at the bar the first night and had cocktails and light dinner. Loved the Soba noodles and crispy green beans. Bartender was friendly and attentive. Second night we sat at a table and had a full service dinner. Shared the twice cooked fried chicken and the spare rib entrees...both were delicious, perfectly cooked and paired with well thought-out accompaniment of veggies, starches and sauces. Wait staff was super friendly. Overall can’t say enough...great food/drink, service, and ambiance...can’t wait to go back!

We had a nice, relaxing time on Lanai, and although the dining options are limited, we were not disappointed. Lanai City Bar and Grille is located in Hotel Lanai and the ambiance is lovely. We were greeted by a very sweet hostess and had great service throughout our meal. My boyfriend had the burger, which unfortunately was a little dry, but my panko crusted seared ahi was very good. I'm sure we will be back.

We stayed at the Hotel Lanai for a few nights and were very impressed with the quality of the food and service. The prices were very reasonable and the portions good. While we did not sit near the entertainment we were able to easily converse without being overwhelmed by loud background nouse and others conversations. That is my hallmark for a great restaurant. Would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Lanai. I only wished they were open for lunch!

We stayed at the Hotel Lanai, where the Lanai City Bar and Grille is located. The dinner menu had a number of offerings that sounded delicious. The food was excellent and the waiter was friendly. I would recommend the venison (from Lanai), which was nicely prepared and not very gamey. We enjoyed a Bananas Foster Bread pudding dessert that was large enough to share, and would be worth ordering again if we get a chance to return to the island.

Chef Jimmy made a traditional Thanksgiving dinnner that was delicious. Tomato bisque to begin was hearty and spot on! Stuffing with sage was delicious. The plate was heaped with perfectly prepared turkey and ham and extraordinary sweet potatoes. Thank you for a great thanksgiving! Always great food in a beautiful setting.

Firstly, if you are on the island you will have little choice for "fine dining" than this pleasant place. Alt is the Four Seasons, a fair distance away and quite pricey indeed --- though they do, uncharacteristically for 4Seasons, give you a big plate of food.

The food here is also a 'big plate' particularly on the modest items (e.g. pasta with red sauce). The fish is very good indeed. But in general beware the sauces, which can be a bit heavy handed. The chef , who is quite a good fellow, also likes to use a liberal amount of hot pepper which is not always well blended, so you can get a 'blast' of heat this is not so wonderful.
