The Makana Terrace was incredible in everything. The outdoor restaurant offers incredible views of the Hanalei Bay and the sunset is a must see event. Our table was perfect and the food and wine were great and the service was also perfect. Highly recommend it for anyone that is thinking about or has any doubts, you won’t regret it.

We had a wonderful breakfast at the Makana Terrace. The breakfast buffet is outstanding, the quality and variety of the food is excellent and the service was first class. It was a brilliant idea to go there for my wife's birthday.

We have been previously but this visit just outshone them all. The mahi-mahi was simply the best we have ever had...likewise with the sunset. And the staff were enjoyable and attentive. A perfect evening!

The ambiance and view is amazing. The service was awful from not having anyone at the table or checking in for 20 minutes at a time. Busser taking forks when we weren’t done with food. Also, not clearing the table before the next course came. Clearing plates before everyone was done with that course. A high end hotel like this should have stellar service.

Go for the views. Spectacular!!

This was by far the standout meal/dining experience of our trip to Hawaii (including our time in Oahu). The view over the water is breathtaking and the future is delicious. We especially enjoyed the fresh caught ahi tuna and mahi mahi. If you're staying in the Princeville area, definitely add this spot to your list, you won't regret it!

Our waitress, Jeanette, was inattentive the whole time. We did not feel welcomed and she provided horrible service. We watched her serve and tend to other tables. What a terrible experience! Especially upset with the service given the price of the meals! She had another waitress tend to my table the whole time. Our steak was dry and you can still taste the flour in the mac and cheese. Will never return and will not recommended to anyone.

Make a reservation for 6pm dinner seating outside so you won’t miss the amazing sunset. Go upstairs for sunset photos. Nice selection of dinner entrees; we had the beef tenderloin. One of my daughters is a vegetarian and she enjoyed the vegetarian lasagna. Wonderful bread and butter to start the meal with salads too. We indulged with dessert and the chocolate cake is not to be missed with their French pressed coffee.

My fiancé and I came here for breakfast. The view was spectacular and the hostess that sat us was so kind and gave us a very detailed explanation of each section of the buffet. We appreciated our experience so much that we decided to come back for dinner the same night because Kauai Grill was closed. Little did we know we wouldn't be having as great of an experience. When we made our reservation through Open Table we included that we were going to be celebrating our day old engagement that evening. When we were greeted by the hostess we were congratulated. Our server on the other hand never mentioned our special occasion once the entire night. Additionally her service was horrible. We noticed that we were not her only table either that was receiving the horrible service. She asked both us and the table next to us if we were ready for dessert prior to even receiving our entrees, hmm? Not to mention, when we ordered two glasses of Kendall Jackson Cab after our cocktails she brought out two glasses of white wine. The table on the other side us, who had a completely different server was receiving the service we expected while dining at the St. Regis. She was up beat, engaging, and friendly. She acknowledged their birthday celebration and had a special surprise desert and glass of champagne brought out for him. It was disappointing to not receive the experience we expected especially when you're paying a lot of money for a nice meal. I can get past that our special occasion wasn't celebrated but not the fact that our server never cracked a smile, rarely checked up on us, and acted like she was on something and wasn't fully present.

Nice place. Great ambiance. Want to see ORGANIC on the menu. NON GMO. LOTS OF LOCAL ORGANIC FOOD can be obtained easily here..they should use it. And, what is the point of reserving a table ahead of time when the server said it makes no difference - they always do first come first serve. Should offer PURE maple syrup and ORGANIC ketchup etc.
Organic jellies. Almost all of my friends read labels and won't go to Regis because they don't cater to healthy food.

With gorgeous views of Hanalei Bay and Mt. Makana ("Bali Hai"), the open air terrace is an outstanding North Shore setting. Even the occasional rain shower just added to the tropical tropical ambience. Our party of nine all thoroughly enjoyed dining there for our last night in Kauai. Unique cocktails, delicious starters and entrees, lovely and attentive service! Very pricey, yes, but well worth it, especially for a special occasion. (Note: valet parking only at the St. Regis Hotel).

Amazing location and view, but....... Fairly limited menu option, very pricey but that is OK since amazing location and opportunity. Items brought not fully warm, having had drinks earlier in the bar which were great was served clearly watered down drink. Staff doing the best they could, Always professional, but no meat on the bones there for this restaurant. Go for drinks be sure not watered down though perhaps eat elsewhere

The views are astounding ! The two small complaints I have are the M&Ms and chocolate bars at the kids part of the breakfast buffet and the low strength of the coffee. Visiting different time zones requires a good amount of caffeine for some of us.

5 stars all the way.
Spectacular setting and view, impeccable service and just the most delicious food. They offer new items daily but I'm sure all will be as delicious as we had. I started with poke, and it was the best quality and freshness I've had. My entree was steak and lobster over vegetables and truffle oil mashed potatoes. The steak was a beef tenderloin that was beyond tender and extremely flavorful. Lobster was sweet and tender. Vegetables incredible and mashed potatoes the best I've ever had.
The restaurant is located in the St. Regis so you expect the best, and Makana does not let you down
