Brunch overlooking one of the world's most beautiful outdoor settings was memorable.

We were excited to take our friends to eat since we had such a great experience a couple of years ago. The setting and scenery was absolutely stunning! Our server was not great and we had to ask for a drink refill 5 times, and was not attentive. The food was okay but we were hoping it would be great given the price. Overall it was not nearly as good of an experience as last time. The ambiance and scenery were amazing, but that was definitely the best part.

The view is indescribable, simply amazing. Our server was Jimmy and he was 5 stars. The breakfast buffet was excellent. My husband had the seafood omelet which he loved. It was expensive, but very memorable and we would certainly dine there again.

An iconic, scenic spot for breakfast! Attentive service and wonderful eggs benedict. After dining here for over a decade, this spot is by far my favorite in the area. I have however, noticed minor quality cut-backs in some of the food items over time but the location and service continue to provide a wonderful experience.

It was a birthday dinner for my partner. The service was ok, but nothing spectacular. Not a lot of choices on menu and for the amount of food you actually got for what you paid was not worth it.

The view! The view! You can’t beat the view.
We went for breakfast. Unless you’re starving, skip the $40 buffet and just order off the menu. Food is delicious but really, you’re there for the setting. (& after breakfast, make sure you have reservations at the spa at St Regis. One of the highlights of our stay in Kauai. It was excellent)

 (Memphis)·Dined on January 12, 2018

We went for dinner, so we had only a limited time to enjoy the view before the sun set, but the setting and view are fantastic. We were given a table right on the overlook and this was wonderful. The food was made with high quality ingredients. However, the dishes did not quite come together. My husband described his dish as "fish on top of rice pudding"; my squash soup had a fish broth base which overpowered the flavors of the squash. Since this restaurant is in a hotel, it might be best used as breakfast/lunch/in-house option to take advantage of the setting. We were staying in Hanalei and it was not worth the drive for us.

We had high hopes for the St. Regis and felt like the restaurant did not meet our expectations. The food was extremely expensive and rather mediocre. Portions were very large and it screamed "restaurant" food. The outdoor seating was nice but you must go before the sunsets otherwise you are just looking at blackness - lighting could be improved. It was also very cold - I'd recommend heating stands to provide comfort to guests who are spending $200 on a meal for two.

We enjoyed our outdoor dinner here, primarily for the incredible scenery overlooking Hanalei Bay, but also for the great food and excellent service. It's pricey but you are paying for the venue (it's at the St Regis) and it's location which we didn't mind. Food was delicious though menu perhaps a bit ordinary, and not really our thing hence the 4 stars on that. Our 3.5 year old toddler twins loved the coloring books provided. We dined at Kaui Grill (also located in the St Regis) the night before which was also very good, but indoors so we preferred this and would more likely go here again instead of Kauai Grill for that.

We just got back from celebrating Christmas Eve at this wonderful restaurant at the end of our vacation at the St Regis Resort in Princeville. The service was timely and friendly while still offering the correct level of formality. The view is incredible. I had the tasting menu and the pork chop was incredible. Perfect temperature and the flavor bursting with every bite. I also had the wine accompany each course and thought the pairings were well made to make the course stand out even more. My family enjoyed other items off the regular menu and each were very pleased with the flavors from salad to dessert. Well done!!!

The service is phenomenal. I left my jacket in the car and the manager arranged to have it brought to me. The short ribs were very tender and didn't need a knife. The mahi mahi was perfect. We were on the terrace and could see the sunset. We were celebrating our 38th anniversary and they gave us champagne and dessert as s gift. We'll keep coming back every time we vacation here.

We stayed at the St. Regis and had dinner here for my daughter's birthday. Food was delicious, the view was amazing and they brought our kids' food out early (which is always appreciated). We were told this was a great place for celebration dinners however not much to-do was made for my daughter. No candle in the dessert and her piece of cake was not comped.

My 85 year old mom was visiting us from Oahu and has always loved the view from this restaurant site. She was not disappointed. The brunch was ok; not like the Sunday brunches of "old" that they used to have here but then the price I'm sure would have been more than the $39 charge. Our server Mr. Haas was excellent, the view fantastic and the food "ono". Definitely will be back when we have visiting ohana!

We enjoyed the two dinners we had here this week. For our first dinner, we had the signature seafood medley and the pork chop. Both entrees were excellent. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert. The second dinner we had the Kona lobster Cobb salad, the crab cakes, scallop appetizer, and the fabulous chocolate stout (ale) cake. Delicious!

The service was gracious and the view was breathtaking.

We were there for brunch and we took the buffet, well organized, lots of variety and really good
The spectacular view, perhaps the prettiest of the island is the star!
Excellent service as one must expect in the highest ranking place on the island.
I can sit there and drink cocktails till I die and my life would have worth the inconvenience of being born...
