    Inside the Mauna Kea resort. We had a reservation and were staying on property. We had the Seared ahi, ribs and porteguese donuts for dessert. There was live music and hula dancing. The restaurant is open air but covered inside the resort.

    This was a fabulous dining experience! The service was wonderful, food was absolutely delicious, and the setting is just beautiful! In addition to the food being great, the portions are good and the price is quite reasonable - especially compared to many of the other fine dining restaurants at this resort and others nearby. We loved our time at the Copper Bar and will definitely return in the future!

    Disappointing service from the moment we sat down. No acknowledgment of my wife’s bday or our wedding anniversary, despite sending the info along with my reservation. Server was not timely and tried to dispute the use of gift vouchers that clearly were valid. Good food, ruined by bad service.

    For a hotel with such great service, this restaurant did not come close!! The fastest that our server moved was when she gave us the check (5 minutes after the food was brought to us). She did not asked about dessert or anything else. It also took a while to be seated. The restaurant is only getting 2 stars because of ambience.

    The setting is beautiful and the food delicious, but the service really left something to be desired. The waiter was uninterested and slow. He rarely came by the table and when he did he seemed a bit bothered. The restaurant was fairly empty so I was surprised by this quality of service.

    This has been one of our go-to places that we love, however, this night was really off. There usually are beautiful flowers on the hostess station - but it was bare and noticeable (to me). Had to wait a few minutes to be seated even though there were only about 5 tables with guests. The service was slow - my husband's ice tea had no ice in it, no refill offered. My truffle fries had a small sprinkling of Parmesan but other than that no different than the fries that came with his hamburger. The music and hula dancer were awesome and added to the ambiance. Overall it just didn't have the WOW factor I'm used to here even though it was a slow night.

    We went here to celebrate our son’s 21st birthday. The hostess was very nice and welcoming. The atmosphere was beautiful. Server acted like he wanted to be anywhere else but there. 2 of the 6 dishes we ordered were good- fish special and pasta. Truffle fries were not freshly made. Ahi was the worst we have ever had. Overall, expensive for a less than mediocre experience.

    The food was delicious, and we were fortunate enough to get an ocean view so the ambience was fabulous. Unfortunately our server seemed like he just didn’t want to be there and was very overwhelmed and apathetic to the quality of our experience.
