The service was excellent! I highly recommend the pork chops they were cooked to perfection! We would definitely return on our next visit.

We enjoyed our meal here. We sat at the rail, but the view of the sunset was obscured by 3 large power lines right st eye level.

Parking was a challenge, too! However, all-in-all, we would go back!

Anniversary date with my husband. Food was cold, unappealing. Service was mediocre after we asked for hot fries. Totally disappointing.

Mary was our waitress, and she was outstanding. She gave us good information on menu choices, and virtually appeared each time our wine or iced water needed to be replenished. The lamb chops were delicious, and she put in or order exactly as requested. Looking forward to seeing her there again.

Wonderful food and seating with view of Pacific. There is free parking available very close to Fosters Kitchen too. This was a nice way to end our recent vacation on the Kona side of Hawaii.

Me and my other half decided to go here for our 6 yr anniversary. We had great seating out on the balcony. The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was because I order the steak house pasta. And when the waiter (not our original waitress) brought it out they dropped it off and left. I had to wait till our waitress came back to check on us to point out that I hadn’t eaten because I thought something was wrong with my pasta, there wasn’t any steak. She took it back to the kitchen and brought it back with steak.

We discovered Foster’s Kitchen around a year and a half ago. We now make every excuse to eat there! It’s about a two hour drive for us so we don’t get to enjoy as often as we’d prefer but it’s always a delight. The food is delicious and fresh, the staff is always divine and both locations are lovely.

We go here often because the food is so good. The view is great and they have a very friendly staff. They also have a good variety so there is something for every taste. My favorites are the pork chops and bbq ribs.

There are only a handful of restaurants in Kona that really try to excel at customer service, and this is one of them. Plus, the food is very good. We had the beer cheese appetizer, and I would be perfectly happy to eat it every day for the rest of my life for breakfast, lunch and dinner. My wife had the fish and chips and really liked the way it was breaded and seasoned. I had the Steak House Pasta, which was delicious, with just enough tender, medium rare steak pieces, perfectly cooked linguine and a creamy, cheesy sauce, plus two tasty slices of garlic toast.

Not near the best experience in Kona. View from deck is obstructed by multiple phone cables. Service is ok, but not near what we expect. Food is ok, but nothing special.

Nice place if you are staying near by. Lower mark for poor parking, buggy, no fans for breeze, but otherwise great. Food and service good. Prices a bit high for what it is, but not terrible.

View was awesome. Ordered Po Burger and was a bit disappointed. Expected capers as described in menu, but it turned out to be in a sauce. Not quite the zing I expected. Service was good. Would recommend more local style entrees if they want the locals to keep patronizing. Felt like menu was geared more to mainlanders.
