Impeccable service from making the reservations and accommodating our special request to leaving the restaurant. The appetizers were phenomenal but the actual dinner itself was dry and bland / lamb was slightly burnt. Not the same flawless food I've had the last three times. Our server was personable and engaging while training the new server and I hope my family will give you the second chance to impress because I know how wonderful your food CAN be.

ROY ain’t what it used to be Slowwwwww service, saltyyyyy food..... you will drink a gallon of water. Roy Yamaguchi has peaked and had is day in the lime light.
Great setting for sun set. Felt the buser were sharper and more on the job than waiter.
Desserts average at best.... pineapple upside down cake was gross, the cake might have been 1/4 inch thick, was pure brown sugar and smother with chopped itty bitty pieces of pineapple. And then there’s his famous chocolate lava cake. Sorry soooo yesterday.

Humble Market has very good food, but what has impressed me the most out of the past two times I've dined here is the level of service! The servers seem to all work as a team and when one delivered our Phoenix Roll Appetizer, another was right behind him with the chopsticks and soy sauce. They were very prompt and seemed to time things well. Mahalo! :-)

Long wait for our drinks , the bar and restaurant was not even half capacity , took 20mimutes from when we placed drinks to get them after waiting 15 minutes to place drink order ... food was par but not up to prices and with really long delay to get drinks and food ... could be so much better ... it would be hard to come back with the high price and sub par service ...

Dinner was fine but not great. We had a better short rib at half the cost in Kihei. Substituted for Onaga with local swordfish. Tasted fine but a little bland. Cheesecake dessert was not good. Dry and flavorless. Very expensive “chef” restaurant. Did not deliver it’s that promise.

Possibly a bad night, but our food was only okay, and our service was terrible. I would probably not take kids here again- was only an overpriced, forced kids menu (each child menu is $17 Prix-fixe) that really was not good. Willing to give another try, but they have things to iron out...

This was our planned New Years Eve dinner. For the price we paid the food and value were terrible. 1st off was told there was no bread for the table, at what restaurant does anyone go to spending this kind of $ and not get a basic table amenity like bread and butter!?!? My wife who is pregnant specified she was pregnant and requested her steak be medium well and it can medium rare, was sent back and when it returned portions of her meal were left off the 2nd plate. I had the fish which came out warm and dry like it had been sitting under a heat lamp all night.

We were not pleased with our dinner and never once did a floor manager ever come by to greet us or ask us how our meal was.


Was not a good experience or meet our expectations for a special occasion especially for the price premium that was put on the dinner.

Receptionist and food was good, service was sad. Our server didn’t seem to care, didn’t explain the menu, we felt rushed to finish dinner. We booked a birthday dinner, when dessert was finished, he asked if we wanted anything else, I whispered to him “what can u bring for the birthday dessert?” & he responded to the table “nothing, she’s vegan & all of our desserts have cream”. I then went to & spoke to the manager & explains to him the inappropriate statement & we agreed that he could have at least brought out fruit or just a candle on a plate so we could celebrate her birthday. The manager then asked me what I feel he needs to do. I feel that is his decision not mine. Sad end to a birthday dinner celebration! Poorly trained staff.

Fantastic spot for a sunset dinner. Inside the all renewed Wailea Marriott.
Excellent staff service from the moment of arrival all the way thru the dinner.
Lots of friendly servers. Food selection is excellent with a wide variety for anyone.
Have been here several times this past year.

The food was fair, nothing special. My wife ordered the cioppino, which had some flavours she didn't expect from the description. I ordered the opakapaka, which was excellent. However, the disappointment was the service. Food was rushed, once my drink was finished I wasn't offered another. It seemed the server had too many tables for her to provide good service to any.

DELICIOUS Food (solid A), creatively presented (B+), with very competent, friendly service ( B+). I find reviews overly preoccupied with issues other than the taste and quality of the food, unhelpful. Don’t let such reviews, which bring down the 4.7 star rating this establishment deserves, dissuade you from selecting HMK for a wonderful dining experience.

My advice 1) Book an outdoor table on the lanai (much queiter than their indoor seating which appeared a bit raucous at full capacity) 2) Time your reservation to enjoy a beautiful Maui sunset while taking advantage of the 4-6pm happy hour menu featuring all appetizers priced @ $10 each. 3) Don’t miss the Crispy Brussels & Cauliflower (soooo GOOD; guaranteed palette pleaser), Szechuan Spice Spare Ribs (meaty with a delectable sauce), and the Crispy Whole Fish (ABSOLUTELY AMAZING). 4) Ask if the chef happened to make the half red velvet/half (something else I can’t remember the name of) cake. The server presented it to my daughter for the occasion of her 29th birthday. It’s not on the menu (chef inspired to make it that day, “just because”). It’s truly a slice of heaven.

Had reservation for breakfast but they made us wait 20 minutes after arriving. Walk ins served just as fast, meaning reservations were meaningless. Breakfast selection was uninteresting and they were running out. They have not figured out breakfast in high season.

It was my first time there. They did a nice job with the renovation of the previous 2 restaurants (Mala & Migrant) into Roy's Humble Kitchin. The food was interesting and familiar at the same time. Portions were great and the Opakapaka that I had with the risotto couscous was outstanding. I also enjoyed the dumplings (Dim Sum) that I had for an appetizer. Would definitely recommend having dinner there for any special occasion. The service by Mitch was excellent and non-intrusive.

Food was fine however the hotel is trying to compete with the service of other Wailea hotels and until they need to step up their recruitment standards or they will never be able to compete. The renovations, hiding the Marriott logo, etc....it’s not enough because the people make the experience and they haven’t trained or hired to the expectation of their guests. It’s a Marriott with a high price tag with mediocre food tagged by Roy Yamagucci
