Great food and wine... we went for the “wine social” beforehand- had some nice wines then followed up with a romantic dinner overlooking the fishpond. A great ambience to the restaurant and the staff were ultra helpful. Will definitely return (next time I’m in Maui)

Good food, mediocre at best service. My wife (who is pescatarian) asked if the Lentils on the fish dish had meat, served quickly said no. She tasted some and swore there was. When we asked another server, he confirmed there was. They replaced with another dish - which didn’t come until mine was cold. They did give us free gelato, but felt too little too late.

Maybe this was one bad server, but if you are going to charge $26 for your vegetable risotto and $36 for your entry level fish dish, you need to step up your staff game.

Excellent food. Comfortable setting. It looked like our server had too many tables and we had to wait a little long to give our orders and receive our bill.

Pretentious. Overpriced. Lobster risotto was very good. Lasagna was recommended as their speciality but was way overcooked and with a very average meat sauce. Really as bad as stouffer’s frozen lasagna! Pizza oven was “broken” for dinner. Has been broken for days. In an upscale Westin hotel. Really?

We arrived on time and were greeted by Patrick. He was a personable young man as we spoke of where we grew up. He had the hostess seat us promptly and she gave us our menus.
Our server, Amy, came over and she was cheery and glad we came for dinner. She was attentive and easy to talk with.
We gave her our order and they were very accommodating by splitting our salads without an extra charge (thumbs up).
The food was excellent, been here before (several times), and the service was great and I like that the tables are not crowded together like some other trendy places (more tables, more money, more noise).
Will be back again.

We were asked to wait in the bar even though we had reservations. The bar is very small (really should expand it) so we were standing and a waiter almost immediately acknowledged us and seated us at a nearby table until our table was ready. He wasn’t even our waiter for the evening! He really went out of his way and we had drinks in no time. Our dinner was terrific and because we asked for a table next to the koi pond it was quiet and beautiful. There aren’t too many pond-side tables but they’re worth the wait. Service throughout dinner was great.

the lamb chops were totally raw and literally not cooked at all and were unedible........and our server agreed.............my wife's lasagna was unlike any lasagna we've ever seen........it was just awful and my wife could not eat it and she is not a fussy eater............

they did re-cook the lamb chops and they were better, but any decent restaurant would not have charged us but they did..............the server said the manager would come out to talk to us but he never did.............

we are local residents and have eaten there several times, but we will not be going back.........

Food was great but service terrible. Got our appetizers before wine arrived. Got our dinners before appetizer plates were cleared away. We've been there many times and this was worst service ever. Not what you'd expect from resort that claims to be upscale.

The walk on the boardwalk was pretty, right at sunset. Then you go through the pool area of the Westin which seemed a bit odd. And into a beautiful garden area with Koi. We were seated with a view through the residences & out to the ocean.
They offered bread with balsamic & oil. We had signature cocktails. Then appetizers of Bread Salad & Brussel Sprouts - both excellent. For dinner we had a Lasagne & Osso Bucco with a side of 3 lamb chops:) Everything was excellent. It was a bit more than we could handle so they kindly packed the left overs up for us.

Rib eye was not very tasty.
Waiter claimed the dessert was award winning, ice cream on a brownie, I don’t think so.

The food was exceptional. The catch of the day was cooked to perfection as was the lamb!
The ambiance was nice and the cleanliness of the restaurant and ladies exceptional

I didn't find it to be a terribly relaxing experience as I found the waiter rushing us..wanting all our order at once..bringing dessert menu before everyone had finished their meal.....as well as the bill before everyone had finished.

We started out with very poor service. But once our table was assigned everything was fine. We had a light late dinner of the pan fried orechiete, panzanela salad and the eggplant parmigiana. All very good and tasty food.

The food was excellent. The service was as good as any restaurant we have gone to in Maui. The location isn't as good as an ocean view but nice. We split the lasagna and a pizza. The sausage, goat cheese, and pesto was the best pizza we have ever eaten.

The food was good as usual however, the service was the worst we have ever received here. We usually eat here at least 2 times each visit but this time we cancelled the second reservation. Dinner took 1 1/2 hours to get to our table and we never heard an explanation or an apology. The waiter appeared to actively avoid our table. We watched multiple tables be seated, eat and depart before we ever got our main course. Very disappointed in the service, especially considering we are owners at the resort and the cost of the dinner.

We actually dined here twice while on vacation. The bruchetta is the best! They had comfort food (pasta and meatballs) as well as a nice selection of fish and steaks. Great meal!
