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.

We had heard about Nick's from local friends, plus read the reviews on Tripdavisor. We had a wonderful dinner, sitting outside facing the pool and ocean beyond. Our waiter was attentive, and very accommodating with my food issues. He made wonderful suggestions, had a great sense of humor, and made the evening very enjoyable. Our dinner was the best we've had in Maui, and we'd already been here several days. It's not inexpensive, but nothing is in Maui, so go ahead and treat yourself!

We dined last minute at Nick’s and enjoyed every moment. Ikaika was fabulous and made our evening enjoyable. We never felt rushed, and as we took our time into the main course and it started to get very warm, he took us into the wine cellar to both cool us off and to show us the extensive wine collection. The food was fantastic. My husband has the smoked salmon and the scallop pork adobo and cleaned his plate. I had the Caesar and the vegetable pasta.,.delicious! Then we were given chilled towels as we finished our wine and considered the dessert menu. We may come back tomorrow as there were plenty of other options we would have loved to have. We only came here due to a cancelled sunset cruise and it turned into our best meal on Maui!! We’ll be back tomorrow night to try the crab cakes. Thank you!!!

Didn’t have the experience that we expected from the other reviews. Waiter had zero personality and the description of the entrees on the menu weren’t accurate. Dishes were just okay. Nothing special. Should have had dinner at our hotel next door (Four Seasons).

We had a wonderful experience at Nick’s. We had seats right on the edge so we had a spectacular view of the sunset. Our waiter was great, very knowledgeable about all of the entrees. Everyone paid much attention to details. The food was excellent! Loved the soup and the Greek Maui Wowie salad. The entrees has such good flavors and were so fresh. The Panna Cotta for dessert was incredible! During the meal, the house photographer took our picture and had it ready when we were finished eating. Nick’s is a very romantic setting, and it’s just beautiful walking around in the grounds after dinner. Loved it here!

We are in Hawaii to celebrate our baby moon, first baby. Our second time to Maui in the last 2 years. We knew we wanted to go back to Nick’s since they first time was so great. Unfortunately, this time around want so great. We were sat promptly. Our waiter appeared to be newer at his job. He was staring into the sky as he told us about the dinner special trying to remember everything by memory rather than making eye contact. He asked if we were celebrating and shared that yes celebrating our baby moon as I pointed to my 6 month pregnant belly. My husband ordered a cocktail and I requested a mock tail. He said of course and asked what kind. I requested something along the lines with black berries, mint, ginger ale and sweet sour. He brought back our drinks and I took a drink. Much to my displeasure there was actual gin in my drink NOT ginger ale. I passed to my husband just to make sure I wasn’t imagining. He agreed there was gin and no ginger ale. We called the waiter over and he swore the bartender didn’t put any alcohol in. We assured him there was indeed gin in the drink, it’s quite a distinct taste!! Let alone the drink had no carbonation that should be there with ginger ale. He apologized and brought back another that I had my husband taste first. Sure enough that was made correctly this time. The waiter apologized, blamed the bar for being busy and told me I’d be ok it was just a sip. Ending at I’m sorry would have sufficed. No need for him to pretend that he knows all. Appetizer was great black & bleu ahi. Entrees were ok - noodles w/ the lobster were under cooked. Our waiters explanations to the food were way too long and even after we chose something rather than just saying great choice, he would delve into a 30sec to min shpeal. We opted out of dessert as our patience was running thin at this point. They brought us a little congratulatory plate that wasn’t any good. And for icing on the cake he charged me for mocktail that didn’t start as a mocktail!!

Our server, Cheston, was awesome. He was very personable, knew the menu very well, and took good care of us. The spinach salad was incredible and the potstickers were the best we’ve ever had. We were treated with an anniversary desert of panna cotta that was amazing as well. All around a great night.

Fresh fish of the day was over cooked and dry and costing $56 each. Waiter was also pushing to order and the place was only one third occupied. Entree came out as we were finishing our appetizer. It is not what it use to be.

Lastly, the waiter tried to recommend a $220 bottle of California Chardonnay. We selected a $68 bottle from California.

Beautiful setting looking out to sea. Food was above average but definitely not stellar and for the price I would expect more. Service was unpolished but servers were delightful. Young kids living their dream but definitely not experienced. Doesn’t “hold a candle” to places like Duos, Humuhumu nearby but was fun to experience something different.

Cioppino was fantastic, but the Mahi Mahi was a bit bland and dry. Our waiter, Chivas, was wonderful. In fact, all the staff was fantastic and really the heart of the restaurant.

The fish selection was very limited. This is billed as a high end seafood dining experience in an exclusive resort town on Maui.
Expensive and underwhelming menu.

Food was ok. My fish was overdone. They corrected it, but by then my husband had finished his dinner.
There wasn’t a good view of the sunset. Can say we ate here, but will try other locations on our next visit.

We ate at nicks one year ago on one honeymoon and it was fantastic. We expected the same when we returned last night, but instead we were completely disappointed. 3 of the 4 meals for our table were over cooked. We all ordered medium or medium rare, and what came out was well done by anyone’s standard. My husband sent his back and it took over 15 minutes to be replaced. My grandmother didn’t send hers back, though the waiter brought her a replacement boxed up for later. My steak was medium on one end, but somehow well done on the other? The chef disappointed. Salads and dessert were great, but for the price of the entree and whole meal I expect much better.

Celebrated my husbands birthday. Great place with patio or open air seating. Wonderful bar to have a drink before dinner. Our waiter Cameron, was great. He was helpful, attentive and just a joy. My husband had the lamb, which was a nice size portion and he said it was amazing. We enjoyed the dinner very much and would highly recommend!

This restaurant was outstanding on all fronts. The service and attention from the waitstaff was perfectly timed and just the right amount. They were all very friendly too. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and each person that came to our table acknowledged it. The food was delicious; we had the sashimi of the evening to start, the beet salad & Greek salad for a second course, for entrees the Mahi Mahi & shrimp scampi, and finally, for dessert the Kona coffee ice cream. The ambiance was beautiful, we only wished we had gotten there before dark to see how beautiful it was at sunset. I’d highly recommend dining at Nick’s if I’m the Wailea area. We look forward to returning!

Asked for substitution, was told no charge but was charged. When I questioned the waiter, nothing was done. Another guest in my party asked for their dish do be prepared without garlic yet there was noticeable garlic. When brought to the waiters attention, nothing was done. Bread was given to every table except ours. We only noticed as we were leaving. Service was slow, staff uncaring...I am sure there are better places nearby....don’t go to nicks if you want good, honest caring service.
