    The food is very salty and pricey. The service was mediocre. We were given plates that were not dried out completely and the servant made it feel like it was very normal to have wet plates.

    We did not anticipate sitting outside with rain blowing in, so we were chilled. Beverages from the bar were sub par for the price. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable, but our server ghosted us during the meal only to return when we were 3/4 of the way finished eating. My steak arrived medium well where my friend's arrived medium rare. We both asked for medium rare. My food was cold and hers was not hot. Our husbands enjoyed their ribeye and red curry seafood. Bananas foster dessert was delicious. In my opinion, there are better places to enjoy on the island.

    Unfortunately, the beef short ribs ordered by my girlfriend were very dry which was disappointing since it was highly recommended by a friend. I did enjoy my roasted vegetables with couscous. The dessert was pretty good.

    Good experience and awesome food. Only thing I would change is doing something nice for those celebrating an anniversary or honeymoon. Throw in a few glasses of champagne and make the moment special for the customer that is already forking out hundreds of dollars for a meal.

    We have eaten at the Banyan tree for several years. The atmosphere and service are wonderful. The fish always fresh. I was not impressed with their new menu and preparations. I did not find the new cocktails very inspired. Overall I still love the restaurant.

    Used to be great. We’ve been going to the Banyan Tree for the better part of a decade. It was our primary go-to for a really nice meal and experience. The service has slipped considerably. We’ll go to Cane & Canoe from now on.

    It seems that the Banyan Tree gets better and better. This has always been a good restaurant but this experience was another level. Having eaten at Banyan Tree many times over the last several years I was impressed this visit with the food, service and ambiance. This restaurant continues to get better, and that is what a classic should do.

    All the food in Hawaii is expensive, but l felt the Banyan was good, but not outstanding for the value. We were on the property and just arrived into Kapalua so we were limited as far as selection.

    I chose Banyan Tree for my wife’s 60th birthday dinner. Expectations were hi based on past reviews and it’s relationship to The Ritz property. It’s definitely a venue for those staying on property as there isn’t close parking. Upon arrival, the hostess team were amazing. Friendly and very welcoming. We were seated promptly, actually early for our reservation time. We were treated to a very nice table location given the occasion. Every one of the staff recognized my wife for her birthday. The menu is typical for a higher end Maui restaurant. Prices compared to Mama’s Fish House, however the ambiance and food quality didn’t match that of Mama’s. Nevertheless we had a great meal and enjoyed ourselves. My wife had the BLACK GARLIC GLAZED SHORT RIBS and I had the COCONUT RED CURRY SEAFOOD. I will say mine was very good but my wife was not impressed with her meal. The service was good but not great. Anthony, our server was very knowledgeable but not too friendly. I’d still recommend this restaurant and would likely return. Perhaps we’d go to The Plantation on property instead.

    Our food and service from Charles were absolutely fantastic. It’s just too bad the hosts decided to seat us in a section that was receiving a large conference party that was loud and walked all around us. I’m not sure what we did wrong to get banished to that area. Charles is a gem tho!!! I would love to have him at my restaurant any day:)
