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.

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.

Food left a lot to be desired for the price. Flavorless. Great service but way over priced. We have had better food at less expensive restaurants. I would not recommend this place nor would I return.

Wonderfully created dishes. Macadamia mahi mahi, lobster mac. In each dish the rich flavor permeated the whole meal, down to the last bite. Bring lots of money, eat like a king.

We were seated next to a very noisy table with a large party, white wine was served warm and we hand to send it back for a glass of chilled wine, beer was offered with an unchilled glass and we had to ask for a chilled glass, salad had still frozen shrimps in it and the magi-mani was mediocre considering the $45 price tag. The only good thing was that they split for us the shared plates. Overall it was disappointing considering the price tag. The night before we got similar food at Tony Bahamas which was far superior for a substantially lower price. We crossed the fish market off our list.

The Morrocan spiced Ahi with forbidden black rice was excellent. Service was outstanding. The presentation of the strawberry flambé dessert was very entertaining. It was a little windy when we arrived so we asked for inside seating. It was much too noisy at our table near the bar, and we were reseated outside with no problem. Dress was more casual than we expected, it's a hotel so families were there in t-shirts and shorts. Not a problem, but the ambience, service, and menu are at a higher level than the patron's attire. We will definitely dine there again!

Everytime we are in Maui we eat at Nick's Fishmarket and are always reminded of why we love it so much. The food is consistently delicious and the service is spot on. Don't miss it if you are in South Maui and take the trip if you are staying elsewhere.

Amazing! Everything about this dining experience was fabulous! We were there for a special dinner with a terrific view of the beach and sunset. Try the Mahi Mahi. It is a delicious dish with a generous portion of perfectly cooked filet. Flaming strawberries are a magnificent end to a perfect dinner. Our servers Chris and Beau were attentive to our every wish. Mahalo for a memorable evening!

Food was fine but I was disappointed in the ambiance. We were seated in a back overflow room that was brightly lit and reminded me of dining in a hotel ballroom at a corporate function. I have noticed recently that when I book reservations through Open Table, we are seated in less preferable locations. This has now happened two nights in a row on my vacation.

Food was amazing. I got the Moroccan spiced ahi and wife ordered the Maho Mahi. We got the chicken nuggets (variant of it) for our toddler and he loved it. Flavors were excellent and presentation pleasing. Mai tais were stiff. I didnt quite like the mango tini- it was alright.

Would love to return the next time we are on Maui.

Steak was good; fish was bland and tasteless. Wait staff was overly and annoyingly attentive; seemed like every time I took a sip of water the waiter rushed over to refill my glass. Waiter came over to ask how my salad was after the first bite. Most annoying was that the open air part of the restaurant was part of the access to the pool. People were walking within 15 feet of the table in bathing suits throughout the meal. Pool traffic should be re-routed! Had a fantastic Christmas buffet here 10+ years ago; this meal underachieved and disappointed.

We had a reservation for 4 people, but one of our party was sick. As punishment, they told us when we arrived that due to only 3 of us being there, our table would be changed. The attempted to sit us outside of the restaurant - alone and away from anyone even though we were hotel guests and had made the reservation well in advance. We refused and were ready to walk out. There were at least 4 empty tables we passed on our way to being exiled. I ordered the shrimp scampi - forgetting that I didn't like it much last year. The shrimp are big, but it's not a traditional shrimp scampi - without a lot of butter or garlic or flavor. We won't be returning. Also, the small pieces of bread they give you are way too salty. This was one of two restaurants we had been to before that we won't go back to. There's too many other better restaurants in Maui. The location is good and if they give you a decent table the view is good, but it's overpriced and the food isn't that great.

Nicks is consistently a beautiful dining experience. My husband & I enjoy the Happy Hour at the bar (attentive bartenders Dave, Jason & Raul). We have celebrated many special occasions at Nicks, along with just a nice dinner out. The hostess Faran is always so friendly and helpful with the perfect table. We've experienced many servers Chris, Beau, Leon, Alex and many more that offer excellent service. The flaming strawberries is a fun dessert to complete your meal. I highly recommend Nicks Fish Market.

We stayed at the Fairmont so this was a convenient restaurant to eat at. We had eaten here 3 times during our stay and the lamb, fresh catch of the day and spinach salad were great. On our last night we looked so forward to eating there again but this time the service was very bad. Our waiter forgot to bring a knife for the fish and he never came back to the table after he delivered our meal. We had to pour our own wine for the rest of the meal. In a restaurant as high end as this the service was very disappointing.

Service was ok, but the quality of the food was terrible. The blueberry cocktail was just bad; made half-assed; my husband took two sips and left 95% of it behind. The waiter never even asked how it was or why we didn’t drink it. He just carried away the full drink at the end of the meal with a smile. Same is true for the macadamia encrusted mahi. It was absolutely awful; looked and tasted like soggy fried fish. Again, the waiters didn’t seem to care that we left 90% of it behind. The only thing we ate most of was the shrimp scampi; it was just ok, even though the shrimp were a bit tough and overcooked.

Amazing experience for our 23rd anniversary. All greeted us warmly and encouraged us for our special day. Food was fresh and creative. Wonderfully prepared. Cyrus was our main waiter, but a team including Teavan and Shawn assisted and spoiled us. The bill is pricey, but the wine, menu and desserts are so worth the price of the experience. Absolutely do it. You will leave full and fulfilled in your time together with your "date", no matter the occasion.
