Sunset dining at its best! Pacific’O is located on Lahaina's most beautiful white sand beach with panoramic views of three neighboring islands. This was the chosen residence and "playground" for Hawaiian royalty; here ancient kings and queens feasted and made merry. Today, enjoy the same pleasures in Pacific'O's open air dining room or on the romantic beachside patio. Long recognized as a leader in local, organic dining; Pacific'O was the first to establish their very own island farm. Each day the table is set with just harvested macrobiotic vegetables and fruit; and local fishermen deliver fresh fish still dripping from the sea. Pacific'O is a local favorite since opening in 1993.

This restaurant was fantastic in every way. From the cocktails, farm to table tasting menu to the incredible sunset seen from our table. I highly recommend it and will go back next I’m in Maui.

Whenever we’re in Maui this is one of our go to special treats. This year was a disappointment. The setting is still lovely and service superb however there is a new chef. The menu is more or less the same but the quality of the meal is not. I had heard that but needed to check out on my own. Their signature fish dish was boring and not crispy as in the description. The subtle spices were perhaps too subtle— whatever it was —all four of us felt it was mediocre and not worth the
Money.

Requested a window, they did put us next to a window but the view was blocked by a tent that they had put up. After expressing our dissatisfaction they did move us outside to the tent. In my opinion, for an expensive restaurant I expect more than plastic chairs to sit on.
Service was good, Pate was excellent however my risotto was very oily. Over all the food is pricey but fresh.

Great view of the sunset tonight. The service was a little slow but very accommodating. The Poke was fresh, the coconut fish very tasty, and the deconstructed cheesecake is memorable so save room!

Great food and outstanding view of sunset. We had ahi tuna on a bed of greens with goat cheese and guacamole mousse. A delightful combination. With a bottle of Oregon Pinot noir. They offer excellent wines. Our server was very knowledgeable and super helpful, but lost his focus when a large corporate group came and he joined other servers helping them. But overall highly recommend!

Beautiful spot and if the weather permits to sit outdoors you can’t beat the view. It got a little chilly. Would be fabulous if they had baskets for blankets available for you if you got chilly because being outside is so great. Loved this place.

We were seated promptly but the server didn’t appear until we had been waiting for 20
minutes. She took our orders but had to come back because she forgot what wine we wanted. My chicken dish was pleasant. My wife ordered the olive oil poached fish which was ok but not worth $44.00. Plating and presentation were offhand - overall a somewhat disappointing experience. Not bad certainly but not up to expectations

We have been coming to Pacific "O for several years, and this dinner was disappointing. Dinners here have been a family "tradition" and this was not the quality we have experienced in the past.

The service was adequate, but not as in the past. The food was not prepared to our satisfaction and also disappointing. Unfortunately because of this experience, we have chosen not to return for awhile and maybe all these issues will improve. There seem to be issues that need to be addressed for further success in the restaurant.

The view is incomparable. We had a table, next to the lawn (it was a rainy night) with a full, unobstructed view of the ocean/sunset. THAT view alone is worth dining here. Prices are high .... but not any higher tan the rest of the places on Maui.
The food is delicious but sadly, the vegetarian options are VERY slim. We had the gnocchi and some delicious salads...but would love to see more veggie options.
Service was perfection. (They even let us use some binoculars to watch whales)!

Loved the food, and the service was friendly, but really not up to snuff. At these prices, I expect a professional server who can manage to bring out the food/wine pairings at the same time. Didn’t happen for a SINGLE course of the menu gastronomic. A bummer when the wine came first and we had to wait for the food, and genuinely unacceptable on the 2 courses where we were served the food but had to wait for the wine. I blame the management. If you can’t get your training and timing down, don’t attempt wine pairings. All you accomplished was to disappoint customers who came to enjoy themselves.

Our last night on Maui and we had a few disappointing meals. Thought Pacific’O might break the trend. Sadly they really didn’t. The restaurant was in a lovely setting but the food was not special. Ordered seafood risotto and the rice was just fishy, it needed a saffron flavor to set it apart from seafood.

Come to San Diego for great food and take ideas back to Maui

Got there early and they seated us immediately. Staff was attentive and gave good advise on our choices. Explained entrees in detail. Table was nice and comfortable for four adults lots of room for appetizers that we shared. The scenery can’t be beat as the ocean is right there. Would go again for sure.

I found the food was okay, however, my mother makes better lamb chops and I would expect a restaurant to be better than hers. The tables were too close together, meaning that I could hear the conversations of the tables next to me extremely clear. Anthony, our waiter, was exceptional and is in our opinion a great asset to the company, although did not acknowledge the special occasion to which we dined. With that said, they did provide us with a card and I believe Anthony wasn’t informed.
