Unfortunately, the fish was cold and overcooked. The flatbreads were soggy, but the burger and poke bowl were very good.

Food and drinks were underwhelming. Nothing special. Location was disappointing, right next to the pool, felt awkward walking into pool area to get to restaurant. Service was good.

This is essentially poolside bar food.
We were expecting a restaurant with a little nicer food especially since OpenTable rating was pretty high.

Nice, but atmosphere is truly a poolside grill so don’t expect fine dining experience. People walking through in bathing suits and the outside pool bar are part of the experience. Not saying that’s bad, just know before you go. Food was good. Service friendly but not super attentive. Took a long time for the food to come.

Nice location, we had a great time meeting up with friends. It was loud, but not bad. Service was good but not great. Food was tasty and reasonably priced, but nothing outstanding. It was good enough to try again, but I'd probably try other local restaurants first.

Food was exceptional, and we had a great time. The service staff was very attentive and helpful. We throughly enjoyed our meal. The only downside to this is the noise from a nearby pool. However we went again a couple of days later. We have gone to many of the restaurants on the island and this is the best food we have experienced. As mentioned the ambiance is the only slight negative.

Our 2nd visit during our 2 week Kauai stay, both for dinner and this time we brought guests. We were as pleased with our food as we were the first time, maybe more. One of the dishes, a swordfish, was prepared as well as it can be; the vegetable stir fy was excellent, again; the pulled pork sandwich had a pleasant "tang" without being overwhelming, more sauced than usual. We had a different server who handled tables with personality and professional skill. Even the local woman at the hostess table was making us feel like family and on leaving gave us a very nice aloha, until next time. There's outdoor seating, but both times we chose the covered portion which isn't fancy but open-air on one side. Holoholo a poolside bar-grill with excellent food for dinner. Although this is a Sam Choy property who is known for Hawaiian poke preparations, the poke is primarily a lunch dish so we will go back for lunch before we leave.

Nice menu next to hotel pool of Koloa Landing. Lots of activity due to proximity to hotel and pool action. They made breakfast items for us despite switching their menu to lunch 20 minutes earlier. Tasty food and friendly waitstaff.

The hype far exceeds the delivery. Stir fry did not include a variety of vegetables and probably included an entire red pepper, Hawaiin flatbread was excellent and my wife’s crusted fish was average. Waitress was very nice but we were served our entrees before we finished our flatbread. Meal was way too rushed.

Most of the food was good. One dish, breakfast hash with jalapeños didn’t have any jalapeños in it. Granola was served dry. The problem was the service. Very few guests when we dined. Food was served at different times. Waited nearly 10 minutes for drinks. Server seemed disinterested. Had to hold my coffee cup in the air to get a single refill. Valet at the front of the resort was the only one who asked how our meal was.

We stayed at the hotel and had the opportunity to try a few different menus. Overall menu is pretty good! My husband is a chef and the only thing he wasn't a fan of is their LocoMoco - he felt it didn't have enough taste. Breakfast was quiet and tasty. Their Portuguese sausage is GREAT. Macadamia pancakes is a huge three thick stack. Nachos are DELICIOUS- definitely try them! Burger was good too.
