    Had a wonderful meal and experience at Humu. Had a table in bar area with a spectacular sunset view. While pricey, food was amazing. We started off with ube brioche bread. My husband had the opakapaka special which was outstanding while I got the filet perfectly cooked with a side of mushrooms. The Humu Mai Tai not to be missed. Unfortunately had no room for dessert. Kudos to Diane our server who was excellent and well versed on menu items. Definitely a special occasion restaurant.

    Everything was amazing here, except the main dishes. I wanted to love it, but the flavors just don’t go together well. I had the Chilean sea bass. I asked our server if she thought the mint and coconut went well together and she said yes. I have to disagree. My husband had the salmon, he said it was ok and our son had the spiny lobster coconut curry and he was not able to finish it. He said that the whole dish tasted like the charred lime. The $300 bill just wasn’t worth it. (We had 3 appetizers also) If you MUST eat here, I would suggest going with appetizers only. The UBE brioche was amazing, as well as the shrimp cocktail and Kona crab cake.

    The food was a big disappointment. My sword fish was over cooked, and dry. My wife’s Chilean seabass was either over cooked or undercooked because it was mushy . It’s too bad the food doesn’t live of to quality standards because Michael our server was outstanding

    Ashley, our Ambassador for fun and sophistication, is an exceptional waitress. She expressed opinions that were intimately based on her personal experience with food and cocktails. Her ability to laugh and interject humor with us made our dinner the best we’ve experienced in Maui. We refined our friends to ask for her and we will do the same on our turn visits. The food is exceptional and expensive.

    We were able to sit at a table in the front bar area and watch the sunset - incredible. The food was delicious! We ordered LOTS and were stuffed walking out. Of the four apps we ordered (shrimp, crab cake, ube brioche, and tuna), we would skip the shrimp next time. For mains, we had the catch of the day and snapper - both were super fresh and delicious. Sadly we were SO FULL that we didn’t take a look at the dessert menu. Yes it’s a bit expensive but very tasty with a great atmosphere.

    Such a beautiful place to dine. Great sunset, ocean view. Restaurant is in the middle of a man made lagoon which is cool. Service was excellent. Food is good we had the ahí carpaccio which was really good a little bit salty from the sea asparagus, filet mignot for $95 and the special fish catch of the day for like $58 was good. Cocktails is also overpriced & not that great. Overall I feel like we should have gone to Mamas Fish House for the price that we payed for.

    Even after everything I'd come back here everyday for the view, jawdropping and mesmerizing. The receptionist and everyone else was extremely friendly and welcoming but when it came to our server, it was the worst thing about the night. We booked the seaside experience which really just meant sitting seaside and that's it but still so spectacular it was fine My wife got kampachi fish which she loved and I did enjoy as well The new York prime however didn't seem to be prime steak at all The cooking was so off it felt like they microwaved it Asked for medium well and it was over well done + Not flavorful or enjoyable at all The shrimp tempura appetizer was best at mid Overly battered with to small of a shrimp choice for it but wasn't bad Asparagus was great Overall, absolutely gorgeous view, which probably would've been just as nice without the "seaside experience", with mid food and bad server Just come for the view

    I have dined here several times over the last few years. Love the atmoshpere. Service was remarkable! They recently changed their menu and we tried several of the new items. Very disappointed. For this expensive of a place the food was a 6 on a scale of 1-10. Sides were very average. They even charge you to have bread brought to the table. Probably wont go again.

    The sunset was simply stunning, and the front row of tables is definitely the best seat in the house. However, if you're dining after sunset, I actually think the fish tank bar is also really cool. Highlights were the coconut ahi ceviche (best ceviche I've EVER had), and the phenomenal server, Randall! Give that guy a raise!! He was extremely attentive, but never interruptive. He also made great suggestions, was knowledgeable and friendly, and truly embodied the aloha spirit.

    It's a beautiful setting but extremely over priced, portions are small, food is average. If you don't have a huge budget I would not recommend it.

    Thank you for joining us, and we are pleased that you enjoyed our idyllic setting with ocean views, as this is often a favorite aspect among our guests.

    I must say that we had a really good experience overall. There are just a few things that kind of bugged me. The food, while good, it was not great! For the price I expected better. It felt kind of old fashioned. It just seemed like it needed a more modern feel. Our server was great and the overall service was good. It was really expensive and it really didn't feel worth it. Hard to really explain. $13 for four pieces of bread (Brioch) was a bit much. I heard it had recently been remodeled, don't really know where. It seemed like we were in Frontier Land at Disneyland without the fun of Disneyland. Not really sure we would go back.

    I was really looking forward for the experience but unfortunately the service was terrible. The server was only there to take the order and we never saw him again till he asked for dessert. The steak we ordered was rare instead of medium rare,the mashed sweet potatoes were to sweet to be a side they should be a dessert. I also left a note on open table that we were celebrating a birthday but nobody mentioned anything. Which was very disappointing because I was celebrating my mom’s birthday and i wanted her to feel special.

    The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the service is amazing but it is really hard to not feel like every little extra was a cash grab. -- I was confused by the reservation and I assumed that I was just holding the booking with a credit card: nope, this was a charge for a nicer table and a glass of prosecco (meanwhile, prosecco is $19/glass) -- Asked about the special package and was told that it was for the "sunset seating" but our reservation was at 8pm and it had been dark for over an hour -- I was expecting Maui to be expensive (duh) but for what it was, it was beyond excessive. My husband and I spent over $300 for two entrees, a shared side and a shared starter Again, this is a gorgeous restaurant and the food was wonderful but it just seems like a "bleed 'em dry" way to approach eager customers.

    We haven't been since 2017 so thought we would treat ourselves to a special night. I understand they have renovated since and from what we saw it was beautiful. The live fish swimming inside the bar table was a special touch. We paid an extra $35 for a "Seaside Experience" which got us closest to the ocean and a fantastic view of the sunset and glasses of Proscecco and a special chilled gaspacho from the chef that was delicious. In retrospect we probably didn't need to spend an extra $70 because there are many tables just above ours that had amazing views as well... plus most that wanted sunset pics just took their phones to the dock sitting atop the water at the restaurant. Our server was very helpful and friendly and seemed to really enjoy her job. The support staff and check in people were also very friendly and we never had to ask for water. I gave it only 4 stars because I ordered the $54 halibut but it was unfortunately way over cooked and I had to send back (which I never do) and was told by the server this had "been happening a lot" with this dish. She asked if I wanted the fresh catch of the day instead (my husband had ordered it and was almost finished with his meal when mine came), so I did. It was delicious but $68. Also after that we had limited service - I would have easily ordered a glass of wine with it but ended up drinking yet another glass of water. When we paid the bill I noticed there was no "sorry about your meal" or a "courtesy discount" so I ended up paying an extra $14 for their mistake. Delicious meal and would recommend but I think we won't be going back since there are so many wonderful options all around Wailea.
