Came (5) early left late because, service was slow. Apps came out cold, and they did recook them. Dinner was faster for many other tables. Once the food was dropped, served didn’t come back to check on us. Serving sizes were small. Second round of drinks was ordered when food was dropped, 2 came quickly one never arrived. Took forever for meal plates to be picked up and took 3 times to get a to go box. We ordered dessert because it was a birthday in our group they also took a long time over 30 minutes. My husband ordered an espresso with his dessert that didn’t come until after dessert was delivered and we had to ask for a 3rd time. The server did comp some items. Overall it was a long dining experience and I would definitely skip this place. We finally left at 7:35, it took forever to pay and get or get our bill run. The manager never came over to check on us.

Don’t be fooled: thus is a pool bar at a Sheraton, not a fancy grill restaurant. We waited ten minutes after being seated for a waiter to show up. He dropped off our glasses of water and disappeared when we indicated we didn’t want drinks. We finally ordered fish and chips in a tempura batter. The batter on the fish was more like the peppery batter on Popeye’s fried chicken than light tempura batter and the fish tasted rubbery. I suspect the fish was a frozen affair. The fries were okay, but also probably frozen. We didn’t stick around for dessert because the noise was getting to us. Skip this place.

This is our new secret spot while on the island. How have we missed this place before!!?
Breakfast this morning was fantastic - try the banana macadamia nut pancakes!
The poke bowl at lunch is a do not miss as well.
Dinner was great ,a nice choice of meals.
Try the frozen drink Molada!
Service is great, it’s super clean and a nice variety of “local”
dishes too.
We are staying at the Sheraton and just walked over and will be going back again and again.

HORRIBLE Zero star customer service- our server didn’t serve our table at all for 20 minutes and we left. She brought us water and asked if we were staying at the hotel (we were not, just visiting for the restaurant), then completely ignored our table while taking orders from two other tables who sat down 10 min after us.
If there is a restaurant manager, they should check on their staff and train them properly.

Open Table confirmed in app and via text that our party of 2 was first in line on waitlist 1 hour prior to our arrival. Thirty minutes later . When we arrived, we overheard gentleman in front of us saying he called 30 minutes earlier for party of 4 and they were told by hostess that she “found him a table”. When it was our turn with the hostesses, they were not sure they had a table for us until another 90 minutes. We were quickly found a table after a hostess went away to check on options. We were thankfully given water, but the waitress didn’t come to take our order at the table for another 25 minutes while we watched other tables (4) get seated after us and ordered before us. The silver lining was that the Holo burger made my husband very happy. He said it was possibly the best burger had ever ate. 😊

We had a reservation for a party of 8 guest at 8:30. It took at least 10 minutes for us to get to our table when we arrived. The server took drink and food orders but seemed rushed. Right after taking our entree orders, she came back and informed us the kitchen staff was closing up to go home and we needed to decide then If we wanted dessert. Keep in mind we had yet to receive even our drinks, appetizers or entrees. The special, fish with pineapple salsa, was mediocre at best. Flavorless, no seasoning and about a teaspoon of salsa for a serving of fish. Then it was time for the server to tell us that it was last call and we needed to hurry and place any additional Drink orders. I get when people walk in at closing with no reservations that their options are limited. However, we had reservations and never should have been rushed to the point that we were. A $400 bill was not justified for the food or service we received.

Poolside pub food restaurant in a resort. Very casual. Our waitstaff was friendly and attentive. Food was simple but tasty. Had the wagyu burger and the shrimp flatbread pizza, truffle fries and onion rings. Pricey, as everything here in Kauai.

Two courses were ordered. The entre was served 5 minutes after the 1st course. The entre was then sent back and was requested not to sit in the “window” for 20 minutes until the 1st course is finished.

The manager brought the entre and reassured that it was not left sitting in the “window” for 20 mins. However, the plate was room temp, and the ahi was med well, not seared rare.

The manager was abrupt and curt. She offered to do nothing other than to cook the entre a third time.

The entree was requested to be removed from the bill. A corkage fee was also requested to be removed from the bill. The dining experience was ruined.

The staff apparently does not know basic service timing. The manager was defensive and no doubt blamed the guest.

This place is clearly not geared toward repeat or local business.
