overall it was a great experience! the food was amazing, everything we had was delicious, compliments to the chef. our waiter andre was phenomenal, very attentive and extremely funny, made us feel comfortable and relaxed, wasn't too pushy, guided us through the menu and have us great recommendations. My only complaint was that host wasn't very friendly and seemed very tuned out, like we didn't matter and she sat us with no menus. The moment we sat down, bread was brought over and then a someone asked if we wanted to get drinks, but we had no menu to look at, we had to ask for both a dinner and a drink menu. Had the host informed us that menus would be brought to us, we wouldn't have been so confused. Other than that, it was an amazing dinner and I would definitely come back again!
As we checked in, the hostess wasn’t too accommodating . Our main waiter was NOT attentive to our needs. Our waiter didn’t take the order. The assistant waiter did. The time between the appetizers and main meal was too long. About a 20 minute wait. BEAU who was the assistant waiter saved the night to some degree. He was very sweet. From my personal experience, I would NOT return to this place. The waiting was excessive, the food wasn’t that impressive and overpriced ! The waiter would walk righ by our table to cater to other clients. And not to us.
We were very pleased with Nick’s. The food and service were great and we will revisit next year during our annual trek to Maui.
Nick’s continues to impress and set the bar by which all world-class fine dining should be judged. Top quality cuisine, excellent non-fussy service, and a welcoming environment. Doesn’t hurt to benefit from one of the most romantic settings in the world as your backdrop!
We arrived early but was seated promptly. The waiter was very knowledgeable and made several recommendations. We had a fish chowder for appetizer that was delicious. As main course we had the sea bass prepared with ravioli filled with sweet potatoes and vegetables on the side. The flavor was outstanding and the portion was filling. For dessert, the strawberry flamebe is a must. The servers were entertaining and prompt. Add the beautiful outdoor setting and Nicks is a must for anyone requiring excellent food, service and beautiful surroundings while dining in Maui.
Birthday dinner was a special treat! Food and service were outstanding! The Greek salad is the best salad on Maui- perfect combination of Maui onion, avocado, shrimp, and feta- yum!
Delicious seafoodPixar’s which was Hawaiian sea bass that was much nicer texture - flaky- than regular sea bass.
The wowie Maui salad was terrific and I shared it with my companion.
Great ambiance and better value than most of the ocean front restaurants
Nice restaurant - waiter was great, host not so much.
Ohhhh amazing! Ingredients were fresh, sunset was beautiful and service was nice and informative from the water pouring to the servers. Get the strawberries flambeed dessert!
Awesome food, and excellent service. Enjoyed the setting and ambiance. Sashimi was melt in your mouth tender. Old fashioned’s were disappointing, as they use ice chips instead of a large cube.
It’s obviously over-priced, but you have to expect that in Wailea.
Excellent service, excellent food, never disappoints. We have been there a number of times and this is one of our favorite restaurants on Maui. Would highly recommend.
Excellent. !!!!!! This was the 2nd year in a row that we have spent my wife's birthday here. We have decided to make it a tradition.
This is also the place that we bring our friends when them come to visit us here on Maui. Nick's Fish Market is our top pick.
Very poor service
Cheston provided great service! The menu was so flavorful. Our family had a great experience and will return. We were a party of six and everyone ordered something to their taste. Not one of us was disappointed.
This was our last dinner out while in Maui before our vacation came to an end. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and drinks on the patio. The only issue was the annoyance of the little flies. I don’t know what they could have done to prevent the issue...maybe candles on the tables...but other than that it was a very lovely dinner. Service was amazing, with all wait staff checking in on all tables as they passed by. Food was quite good and we were not disappointed.
Fabulous meal at Nicks. Great appetizers --had the escargot and salad, and superb daily special and the larrrrrrge lobster tail. Nice wines at okay prices too.
This restaurant is overpriced for what you get. They take advantage of tourists at the hotel. We never had a waiter. They made excuses for being busy when we asked for the waiter. They cannot handle large crowds. Food is good, but nothing spectacular. So many better places in the area for the same or less value. Try any other place, but this one.
Overall service made you feel special. Food is always great. It’s our number one pick for special occasions.
Lovely atmosphere but we ordered 3 courses and waited forever between all three of them. It was over 2 hours and we even told them we wanted them to keep moving along ... won't go back.
Another fabulous meal at Nick’s in Maui. We dine here every visit. Exceptional service with amazing food.
The absolute best service on the island!!
Best food and service it was just a wonderful experience all around
Great food (Mahi-mahi and Ahi), fantastic service, but they seated us next to a large business dinner and the noise was extremely distracting; hard to carry on a conversation. A little expensive too.
This restaurant was in our hotel (Fairmont). It was probably my favourite of our trip. Excellent food options and quality. The service was great and the view is lovely.
I like fish but felt Nick’s is catering a bit to much to crowd that likes to say they like fish but really don’t! By that I mean the sauces overpower the fish taste. Not my style!
The staff was very attentive especially Beau who’s was full of magic tricks and jokes. He made the visit very personal and was full of information not only regarding the food but also the islands and places to go. It was like having a personal guide for dinner.
The food was slightly pricy for what we got but the quality was excellent. While it was not some place to go everyday it was well worth it for special occasions or you last day on the island.
The food was superb, the service first class and the view was outstanding. We have eaten at many Maui restaurants over the years and Nicks is the best of them all.
Every year for our anniversary we come to Nicks....for a reason. Great food,elegant yet friendly service, super employees like Beau, our waiter wno we've known for several years. A class act.
Wonderful service, atmosphere and food. A great all around experience for our family.
Shown to tables but had to ask for menus.
Given a very young inexperienced waiter who wasn’t good at explaining what was on the menu.
A very experienced waiter took over and really was good at getting the orders completed.
Celebrated our 12 year anniversary... This wasn't our first and will definitely not be our last... This place never fails us... They made our evening feel extra special... The food was on point, staff was friendly and attentive, it was just an overall wonderful experience... AGAIN!!! Mahalo Nicks!!!
The open- air restaurant is beautiful. It overlooks the elaborate Fairmont pool system with the ocean in the distance. Romantic lighting and torches enhance the ambiance.
I am always delighted when an alert server noticed that I have black on and offers to exchange the white napkin for black in order to avoid lint.
The food was exquisite, cocktails were delicious, service was excellent making the whole evening a 5 star experience. I would highly recommend it and we will certainly return on our next visit to Maui.
My husband and I came here for my birthday. We had a good experience. Make sure to schedule reservations ahead of time in order to get a table otherwise you may not be able to dine here. We asked for a table on the patio and they were happy to accommodate our request. The view was beautiful, particular as the sun is setting. The food is great too; however, it is very expensive. The rack of lamb was spectacular but cost $50.00 alone. The shrimp scampi is also delicious and was around $39. The service was ok. It was a bit strange as we had various different servers take our orders or follow up on how we were doing. It was also a bit slow so make sure to go with some time.
They also gave me a free desert that said Happy Birthday on the plate with a candle. They don’t sing to you or anything like that. It is pretty straight forward/laid back. Most people were dressed well. We had just finished the road to Hana before going to our dinner and my shoes and some of my clothes were covered in dried up mud from the day. They didn’t say anything so there is no dress code.
Although Nick's is in a special place the restaurant is a bit shabby. Chairs and cushions seemed a bit worn.
We arrived before 6:00 and the host tried twice to seat us in an undesirable location. After insisting we have a table with a bit of a view he did seat us near the view. It definitely soured our experience since there were plenty of open tables and when we left there were still view tables available.
Excellent dinner on the patio. Always great seafood and very attentive service
One of the best meals I've ever had. The lamb presentation is the best on the island and the cioppino was to die for! Great cocktails and wine too. And if you get the strawberry dessert, you get a whole show with it! Definitely worth every penny! Can't wait to go back!
Love this place! We went on our last night in Maui (a tradition) to cap off our vacation. Started with the calamari, then had the opakapaka piccata and shrimp scampi, finishing with the strawberries panzini. Service was impeccable...two years in a row we were taken care of by Beau and Cyrus. It was so nice to see them again, they treated us like royalty. I hope we see them again next year!
The restaurant is located in a beautiful garden setting near the oceanfront, you won't find many nicer. We were on the patio, a great open air venue. The drinks and appies were excellent as were the salads and main courses. We were served by about 3 different waiters which seemed interesting at the time but they did mess up a couple of the orders which was disappointing. Desserts were also good and they presented my wife with a complimentary flan for her birthday! The prices are on the higher side, but probably competative for the quality of food and the atmosphere. Overall a great experience!
Beautiful setting overlooking the grounds of the Fairmount in Maui at sunset. Service was disappointing, our first waiter was uniformed and inept; had to request a reolacement. Food was mediocore; the oysters were small and the taste was overwhelmed by a sauce as was the sea bass.
Food was great as usual. Had the daily fish special. Must have been short staffed as the service was unusually slow all night.
