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.

Maybe it was thanksgiving and they were busy, but it’s no excuse for 1 star service. We checked in at 7:30 at our reservation time. Didnt get seated and was told they would set our table. 7:48 still no seating. Checked in again the hostess realized she had forgot about us. Finally got seated, but no even approached our table even water until 12 minutes had been passed. Aweful. Food was nothing spectacular, shrimp wontons were cold, coconut crusted fish had no taste.

We will pass next time. Too bad since the location and ambiance are fabulous.

The food was good, and the manager was very nice.
The general staff, however, were very lacklustre, except for the nice gentleman who kept refilling our water glasses.

The chairs on the ground level were terrible, the cheapest type of deck chair that you’d get at Walmart.
The legs kept bending when I was trying to pull my chair closer to the table.
I was expecting much better, and won’t be going back

Our family enjoyed our experience however the waitress seemed a little distracted with few friendly and welcoming smiles.
Just felt like we were an annoyance to her that evening, otherwise 5*'s

The setting is gorgeous. Service was a little slow as i think we all arrived about the same time. Better staggered reservations? Food was delicious. Interesting and fresh. No problem to change the ahi to mahi mahi in my salad. A little pricey, because they can. The luau next door was a noisy distraction, but what can they do.

This was our 8th time at this restaurant. We come every time we go to Maui. Delicious food. Amazing ingredients. Creative dishes. The service was awesome too. From the thoughtful anniversary card and dessert, to the water glasses remaining full, to the great service from Christine our server. See you next year!

Ambiance was perfect. Beautiful setting and view. We were looking forward to a great meal. Menu was eclectic and we wanted to try everything.
Server was friendly and knowledgeable but had way too many tables. We waited over an hour for our appetizer. We finally asked the server and he apologized. We assume he forgot to put in the order. At 1 hr 10 minutes after sitting down, dinner and appetizer arrived at the same time. Fish was cold and overcooked. Lamb chops were too rare and also cold. We sent the appEtizer back. We asked for check after eating a few bites of our dinner. We did not ask for a discount or refund but management offered one. We were not charged. We ended up having dinner back at our resort.

The Kona Winds Ahi was transcendent. The flavor profile presented by the avocado salsa, goat cheese and soy vinaigrette combine for the best Ahi dish you will ever eat. The wedge salads is second to none. When making a reservation ask for a front row table (beachside); the view is magical. An upper echelon meal without the pretentious vibe that accompanies many fine dining experiences. This was our first time eating at Pacific’O. We’re already looking forward to dining here again on our next visit.

We were seated outside as requested. The server was not good. He wasn’t able to adequately explain dishes. We had to ask for bread. I would say we were there less than an a house including drinks, appetizers and main course. This was not leisurely dining. The appetizer wasn’t done by the time the main course came. The server seemed like he was in a big hurry. At the table next to us, they cancelled their wine that never came. She told him to forget about bringing it. The setting is outstanding, the food was decent, but we will likely skip next year.

Amazing food and beachfront setting… Service was great. The only downside is a $35 wine corkage fee which is sort of outrageous.

For our last night of vacation we picked Pacific O....the location is great, the service was good and the food was just okay. The fish was not as fresh as some we have had during this trip.

This was our best meal on Maui. Service attentive, the setting by the ocean very pleasant and food was incredible (we had lamb, two fish dishes and chicken and they were all fantastic). Two things came as a surprise: oddly expensive bottle of mineral water and loud luau entertainment right next door. Settling both as a possible norm on the island, we focused on the food and walked away with a great experience.
