Seafood
Nick’s Fishmarket Maui, located at the Fairmont Kea Lani in Wailea, offers the finest in local and mainland seafood in a tropical paradise setting. The romantic flair of the Mediterranean is seen in the restaurant’s decor, from the rich earth tones of its color scheme to the crisp white curves of its enchanting architecture. Patrons dining outdoors will fall under the spell of overhead, vine-covered trellises with fragrant stephanotis blossoms and sparkling lights, while looking out over the lush grounds of the hotel and onto the beautiful ocean view. Innovative, classic cuisine is the focus of this premier restaurant. Specialties include fresh Opakapaka, Mahi Mahi, Ahi, Opah, and Hawaiian Spiny Lobster, as well as standards such as Prime New York Steak, Rack of Lamb, and Greek Chicken. Whether it be a romantic dinner, a family celebration, a business function, or just a night out with friends, Nick’s Fishmarket Maui is the Valley Isle’s first choice in dining.

Food and service very good. Staff friendly. Were not thrilled by our table location, but every restaurant has a few less than desirable tables. We chose not to make a fuss.

Greeted wonderfully by bartenders. Went totally down hill from there. Have eaten at nicks many many times They are not even close to the way they were run before. We’re shown to the group room. As a table of 2 were ignored. Given menus and no wine list then did not see a person other than water person who was the most helpful of the night, for 20 minutes not a person came by. Had to flag down the waiter to get him to take our order. After getting him to pay attention to us we were able to order. Compare this to when they used to pride themselves on fast service by multiple servers. Those days are over! FOOD. Just average not worth the price. Think long and hard before trying Nicks Fishmarket at the Kai Lani.

Reservation for four ready on time. Cozy table. Food was so yummy! Loved the Caesar Salad, the seafood chowder. Brûlée yummy too! Kama Aina discount for locals as well. The Kea Lani hotel that it is situated in is beautiful as well!

We went to Nick's for our anniversary. Our first visit. The hostess station was crowded and customers were lined up to get in. They were not ready. We were seated at a very nice table near the lawn. It was very nice. The waiter came before too long and helped us make dinner selection decisions. He was helpful and pleasant. Dinner arrived before too long and all looked good until the steak was cut into and it was not medium rare but closer to medium well. The waiter was nowhere to be seen and after way too long I went to the hostess and asked if she could send over our waiter. The manager arrived and was most apologetic. The steak was eaten as served rather than wait for a new one. The other dishes, calamare, fish chowder, etc. were very good. The rest of the evening went well. The apple pie was very good. The manager did not charge for the overcooked steak which we asked him not to do but he did anyway. The meal was expensive from our point of view but the setting was good and we enjoyed ourselves. We might go back again but there are plenty of great places in this price range to include Mama's and Ko. With that said, our next visit to Nick's could be a long time from the first visit.

Being a black male with his black companion, seated in the rear of a restaurant that was filled with 40-50% white, was very uncomfortable. The waiter didn't offer a menu, my lady reached over to a stand next to our table to retrieve a menu. Several waiters looked as if something was wrong as we sat to eat.

Amazing!! The service was among the best I have ever experienced. Attentive staff - seemed to be 3 people waiting on us! Table next to us had a young, tired child and 2 waiters pushed together two chairs, swept a tablecloth and pillows in it and made a bed for the child to lay in!!! As the mom of 3, I was impressed. It kept the scene peaceful and relaxed for everyone.

We began in the bar for happy hour for great Poke and drinks. The bartender, Raoul, was great. It was a busy bar and he was friendly and had a sense of what everyone needed at any time.

We moved to our restaurant table where Cheston, Avi and one other (sorry! Didn’t get name!) all served us. Bread was brought and they had a peppery flatbread that was amazing! We split the Caesar salad- probably the best we ever had! For the main course my husband got the 14 oz steak which was great. I got the shrimp scampi with homemade pasta and large shrimp. Everything was DELICIOUS. Service was spectacular! Can’t wait to return!

We have come here for years this was our worst experience. The service was horrible we had about 4 different people come up and ask us what we wanted then never return . This happened with drinks,wine order etc. then when my Ahi tuna came it was not editable. Could not even cut it with a knife. Someone came by and I complained so he took it away and after a while returned with a new entree ,it was better but not as good as I have eaten at other places on Maui. Then we had to wait and wait for our bill.

Not only is the food here delicious the service was a perfect example how how restaurants should run. Cyrus was our head waiter and took excellent care of us but it felt as if all the staff was there to assist in what was truly one of the best serviced meals I have ever experienced. Multiple people came by to wish me a happy birthday, explain to us their favorite items and answer all our questions. After much deliberation we started with the calamari which was a hearty portion, along with the pork wontons which were a new delight for us. The scampi was divine, the steak melted in our mouths and the Mahi Mahi was seasoned and crusted to perfection. Our drinks never went dry, we left full and with the feeling that we had just made several new friends. Would reccomend 10 out of 10 times.

Nice restaurant. Food was extremely tasty! We received a free dessert as it was our baby moon which was a lovely surprise. Food was a little expensive.
Quick service.
My virgin cocktail (mojito) was terrible so I ended up sending it back, but the second attempt to make it was much better.
