Maybe it was just the cost of the pre-fixed Valentine’s Day menu, but the price was ridiculous. Food was fine, view amazing.

Valentine’s dinner with another couple was somewhat disappointing. The prefix menu had nice selections but the presentation and quality didn’t measure up to the prices. For $89 per person plus $35 for wine pairings we all expected better. The location is outstanding but I’d rather go to Merriman’s or Ruth’s Chris for the price.

It felt like a generic fine dining establishment in a tropical locale. Ok food - for fine dining. Ok ambience. Service for sone reason was slow and inattentive - we had to ask for a high chair 3 times ..

They need to improve the menu selections especially for the price. The ambience of being oceanside is very attractive and the service has always been good.

Arrived at 730 pm as per reservation. Very busy and lively. Was told band went over there time and people still enjoying and did not have any tables available for sitting. Standing room only. We had to wait til the place cleared out for our reservation dinner. Which was not til 815pm. Then service was slow. Meal was okay. Would not recommend. Maybe lunch would be ok.

Oasis on the Beach has been one of our favorite restaurants since we moved to Kauai over three years ago. We have gone there often, and have taken our visitors there for breakfast and lunch. We have been well-treated and well-served. The food has been consistently good and the service consistently friendly, until now. I made a reservation for lunch last week, and walked in while my husband was running an errand. Arthur took me to a small table. When I noticed that the table he took me to was next to a table set for 6, I asked if there was an available table that would be more quiet. He said, rudely: "Lady, this is a restaurant and it is ALWAYS LOUD!! Then he showed me to a table at the back of the restaurant. I was shocked speechless! Our waiter came ,thankfully, not Arthur, and was friendly, likable and well-trained. He said that "Mr Art" had trained him. I watched Arthur as he moved around the restaurant, and he was business-like and friendly with other patrons. I feel for you if you catch him on a bad day, or happen to ask him a question that he doesn't like.

One of the best meals EVER, anywhere. Grilled ahi, the catch of the day, absolutely could not possibly have been any fresher. Accompaniments of puréed kombucha pumpkin and a kind of Asian green bean were also fantastic. Oceanside dining, wonderful server who provided reliable recommendations, and great mai tais. Orange creme brûlée for dessert was also beautifully garnished with a kumquat and delicious, not overly sweet. Perfection!

Let me begin this review with full disclosure—we are from the East Coast and used to Boston and NYC prices so these prices didn’t seem out of range for the quality provided. This is one of the few restaurants that source 85-90% of their ingredients from the island and the freshness shows. We dined on a Wednesday night when there is live music—fantastic music with most patrons there for happy hour, music and appetizers. If you are looking for a quiet dining experience wait for the music to end at 7pm. That said, we were seated outside so the party atmosphere under the roof didn’t bother us at all and the music added to our enjoyment. Now the food: absolutely wonderful. Appetizers included a purple potato soup, pork spring rolls and salads. Everything was fresh, carefully prepared with delicate touches, and flavorful. Love that they had half portions of the entrees. Two of us had seared fish, one had the Japanese pork and one had the beef cut of the day. Again, great flavor but nothing drenched in too much sauce, etc. All the dishes came out at once (great service) which we appreciated. Homemade gelato for dessert (def get the caramel) was perfect. The drinks were exceptional —pineapple martini laced with blackberry syrup (but not sweet!) The Maitais is unique in the addition of something almond... loved it all. I would return here again and in fact our friends did the following night.

We had an oceanfront table which was the only good part. The service was slow. The table was dirty. We did not enjoy having to listen to the waiter serenading other men with love songs. Food recipes were odd. I would recommend skipping this restaurant.
