Outstanding. The risotto crusted fish is the best I've had on Maui in 10 years. Amazing wine list with some real hidden gems, like Amuse Bouche - Coup de Foudre. Fantastic service too - Jim, Nick, Corey, and Claudia made our night extra special. Thank you, all.

I'm not a fish lover but LOVE your grilled fish over spinach salad w/peppers and chickpeas presentation. Thank you for for having a lighter fare on the menu. Also, my guests and hubby loved their risotto crusted fish. That's always a winner and extra moist/perfectly cooked that evening. 'course, the Brussel sprouts are always awesome as well.

Came in with a reservation and got seated pretty promptly which was nice. They never did take into accounts our special occasion or request but that’s okay it was still a decent dinner

Staff was great. Food was good but unremarkable. Choices were very limited on menu. It was extremely hot and humid, which I know is to be expected for Hawaii but there should have been ceiling fans to move the air at least, I was very uncomfortable for most of the meal. Prices were typical Maui, on the high side but I’ve been to much more high-end restaurants on Maui and have never been charged $19 for a vodka martini. This is a restaurant in a Westin time share, not the Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons.

Jimmy was our waiter and he was fabulous! He knew just how much to interact and when to pull back. His service made the experience even more special. Thanks Jimmy!

Restaurant was pretty empty, it’s inside the Westin residences.
Waited 10 min before someone came to our table and only after another waiter checked with the manager to say we hadn’t been waited on yet. Servers were attentive after that but seemed very young and inexperienced.
My ahi was very very good, but my wife’s Mong Chong was waaayyyyy over cooked. I’ve had Mong Chong before and it can be tough to cook, small margin of error getting it right, but figured if you’re paying $40 for fish it’d be done correctly.
Given the competition in Ka’anapali, I’d say Pulehu was only average.

First, our server Jimmy was terrific, very professional.
Food, was worst meal we had on Maui these past two weeks. Calamari had no taste, lasagna tasted like tomato paste, and we returned the very over cooked prawns and pasta.

Sad evening.

It was a great experience. This is the second time we’ve eaten there. The Brussels sprout appetizer was awesome. The risotto crusted fish was terrific. The fettuccine with shrimp was very tasty. The veal and steaks were also good. If you are there when the torches are being lit that adds a little fun too. The service was very good both times.

We ordered 2 lasagnas. BOTH came out very dry and hard as a rock. Waitress said she'd "talk to the chef"....we never heard from her again, but she was quick to AUTOMATICALLY add the 18% tip to the bill, which I think is insanity.

Good for smaller groups or couples.


They had our 11 top seated next to another large group. Both groups had children & one child ended up getting hurt. That kindah put a damper on things. But other than that service was great, food was good.

What a surprise gem! This was in the top two meals we had during our week long stay on Maui. The service was great and the food was absolutely incredible. We are a family of six, and we all agree that we would seek out this restaurant on our return trips!

Everything was great the wine-which the server recommended-was fabulous and my daughter-who is a chef-learned some new vintages from her. The food was of course the best. Bravo! -no visit is complete without a meal at this restaurant.

Food was mediocre and not cheap. Not a lot of choices at all especially for kids; only a few pizzas on the menu and none were very appealing. Got the Margarita pizza but it was drowning in sauce without much cheese. Beautiful atmosphere. Staff friendly but took forever to get a check.
