We went to Nanea to celebrate my 30th birthday, travelling from Canada. This restaurant was not our first choice but due to last minute booking, this was the better option left in town. Being a frequent traveller and diner, the service here was mediocre. My partner mentioned it was my birthday however there was not even a little special treat at the end of the dinner from the chef or restaurant. The bill had an error and we were overcharged, we only found out about this when we saw the transaction and refund. Overall, the standard just was not up there to compliment such nice resort. The hosts from the front / entrance to restaurant were outstanding and made lovely conversation with us while we waited though.

Food was great with a nice selection, but they need to update their advertising. The on-line page lists the opportunity of purchasing 3 glasses of champagne for $5.00, but we were changed $10.00 for three glasses. The buffet price was also under stated on line, an update would avoid any misunderstanding.

Nanea Restaurant at the Westin Princeville is always a great spot to go for dinner hen in Kauai. The food is great, service is great and the view overlooking the pool and the ocean at sunset is fantastic. They never disappoint us when we go for dinner.

Birthday celebration for my wife with family. Was asked if we were celebrating a special occasion, told our server and not even an acknowledgement. Cocktails weren't offered before meal, had to ask and service was extremely slow for a dinning area that was not busy. Food was okay not exceptional especially for the price. Not a memorable birthday celebration for my wife.

We ended up at Nanea by accident for our anniversary, but were certainly glad we did. We had the wine pairing dinner and everything was excellent and the pairings were exceptional.

Food was nice, but service was terribly slow. Wasn't offered a choice of inside vs. outside -- even though we had reservations, they tucked us in the far back next to a large group but there were lots of tables open. Had to wait for everything -- water service, drink order, food order, bread came after the appetizer, etc. Food was nice, with a good selection of choices, but wasn't particularly special or memorable. For the price, this shouldn't be a first choice in the Princeville area.

We live on Kauai for many years. Our weekend at the Westin was through a Fundraiser for Island school. Thastay at the resort was fabulous. We decided to have dinner at Nanea our first night. Everything was great, with the exception of our entree of fish being dramatically overcooked. We are not thevsort that complain. We're blessed to live where we do. Sorry for a less than perfect review, everthing else was. But, when you charge $38 for a piece of fish, it should be done correctly.

We went here for dinner for our anniversary on our last night at the Westin Princeville. We had the Tasting Journey 5 course dinner with wine pairings. Everything was fantastic- especially the service. We had a wonderful table with a front row seat of the beautiful pool and ocean as a backdrop. We will eat here again!

Had a chance to enjoy their prime rib on a Sunday night. Very nice cut and cooked to perfection. It was properly seasoned which help to enhance the taste. Service was outstanding, the waiter was David, he was attentive and professional. Topped the meal off with a pineapple cake that was tasty and hit the spot.

I have to tell you. This restaurant was not only yelp or even the open table search pages. We were in Kauia and were always directed to the St Regis. We walked through the st Regis . Their ambiance did not fit us. Only bc of their Nanea Restaurant sign is when I started to investigate. What a great place . Their food was excellent. Server and the manager both stopped by and I told them how I felt the restaurant was not on any top search engine list . Their filet was the most tender that I have ever tasted.

We ate outdoors under the covered terrace in the evening around 7:30 and the temperature was perfect! We had a beautiful table overlooking the pool and the grounds surrounding it. Very tropical with water falls and ponds with koi in them. Complete with tiki torches. The good was amazing! One of us is vegan and they had several choices for dinner, including desserts. They are very willing to work with you if you have special dietary needs so don't be afraid to ask! Overall we loved it!

The Caesar salad is quite good . The sides that can be added to a salad are price performers . Vegetable sides are ok . The quality here is good but it all translates to a "meh" kind of evening , little to no creativity but also, no flexibility on what can be ordered . The breakfast is much better, in another league .

This is what Hawaii is suppose to be. We experienced a lovely evening.
Service starting with the hostess was excellent, Brian was our waiter and did a stellar job. The ambiance at dusk was beautiful with the tiki torches lit around the grounds.
I want to stay at this property next visit to Kauai.

We decided to have Sunday brunch buffet here because The St Regis isn't doing brunch buffet anymore. Wow! This was way better than the St Regis brunch. There was something for everyone. Prime rib, sushi, poke, crab legs, shrimp, sushi grade tuna and salmon, salad, fried rice, ginger chicken, Chinese fish, and the usual brunch items. Not to mention the mimosas. The only issue is the birds but then again, you're in paradise. Why worry about the small things.
