    Fabulous experience. We are not adventurous diners so the Chefs Table experience really stretched our comfort zones. That being said, we will definitely return. It is very expensive at $194 per person so probably would not go with large group or family. Still a great experience with attentive chef, waiter and other chefs. All did a great job of explaining the different courses ( there were 6). Enjoyable experience.

    The chef’s table at Ka’ana kitchen is a hidden gem in Wailea. From start to finish, Chef Chance and his team are so much fun to watch work and every course is fantastic! If you find yourself in need of a great dinner in Wailea, I’d strongly suggest the chefs table.

    Wow this was amazing! 5 courses 2 in small plates So much fun. We sat right by the chefs station and got to see it all. The head chef was very interactive with all the guests he would go around and talk to everyone. Every plate was explained. Just an awesome experience. Be prepared for a $500 bill tho. But who cares yolo! I’ll probably not get to do it again.

    This experience is amazing. Chef Chase is so thoughtful, innovative, and creative. He plates unusual dishes that don’t sound as if they could possibly work, but they do! I mean, who thinks that the creamiest foie gras on top of a sugar cinnamon donut slice would ever taste good? But it does, and amazingly well! We also had the best sashimi dish we’ve ever had. Chef Chase and his exceptional staff all came to talk to us and explained techniques and answered our many questions. Everybody we talked to appeared to really enjoy working there which speaks very highly of the leadership and group dynamic. This is truly such a fabulous experience that it’s become an annual event for us. Thank you Chef and staff for another great dinner.

    Wonderful experience tonight. Celebrating our honeymoon and our dinner was excellent. Food had many different flavors and styles. Getting to try so much of them menu was a blast. A lot of fun interacting with the different chefs. They were very accommodating and eager to make a lasting memory for us. Great personalities and people behind the cooking team. Was glad to have met so many awesome people. Look forward to coming back on future trips!

    I am a foodie and an excellent hobby chef. So when I say the experience was simply outstanding I know what I am talking about. From service to the flavours of the food, everything was incredible. Definitely in the top 5% of the restaurants I have been. Of course all this comes with a pricy bill.

    The chef was very gracious and made the rounds. Food was very nice, but our waiter was really lacking in comparison to what we saw others that did the same experience. He obviously had some additional tables and while the whole staff came at points to build on the experience it wasn’t the best we’ve had on the island. Had higher hopes for it.

    Fantastic experience! The staff was so friendly and attentive throughout the ~2 hour dinner. We were seated right in front of one of the cook stations, so had a perfect view of what was happening behind the scenes in the kitchen. Big shoutout to Philip, who was manning that station, who made conversation with us and answered all of our questions throughout the night. The meal consisted of five courses, a couple of which were different so that we got even more variety between the two of us. We were also offered to try something we saw Philip preparing that wasn’t part of our menu, so that was an unexpected and pleasant bonus! The dishes were all tasty, and they were able to accommodate a couple of dietary restrictions. Highly recommend joining if you can get a reservation.

    My wife and I did the Chef's Table for her 40th birthday, and it was outstanding. Miguel, Jared, John, and Mark were fantastic to interact with, and the food was exceptional. It was great to be able to talk with all of them throughout dinner, and everyone in the kitchen was outgoing, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. Also, the food was fantastic, and we would definitely do it again.

We did the tasting menu and the Grand Cru wine pairing and it was spectacular. Food, wine, conversation, and everything in between were stellar. We can’t wait to do it again. If you’re on the fence - get off and GO. You won’t regret it.

    A+ all the way. The chefs table experience is amazing. Our third time booking it now and it just keeps getting better every time. The orange ginger caviar intermezzo is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted which is saying something because all the other courses were truly delicious. The very first hit with the amuse-bouche was like a drop kick to your taste buds saying get ready for what’s next. The mushroom mousse with the lemon herbed olive had me begging the chef for bread so I could get every last bit. The gnocchi was comfort food heaven. And I could go on and on about the food. It’s so worth every second. And the chefs, the entire kitchen staff and wait staff were on point. Always willing to answer questions, always checking in to make sure everything was cooked to your liking, even things where they ask you what you don’t want are truly appreciated touches that really do make it feel like you are in a family kitchen. I will definitely be back next time I’m in Maui. Cheers to the chefs!

    This was the most amazing dining experience ever. My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner and sat at the chef‘s table. We were treated to eight or nine courses of creative and very delicious food and about 8 different wines from the pairing option which we added. The chefs were very personable. Our server was awesome. What a night. Highly recommend for a special occasion
