We had never been here before, and wanted to try a new place for lunch. When we arrived (with reservations) the hostess was harried, and asked us to wait, which is perfectly reasonable. However, when she came back, her demeanor was not improved, and it set the tone for a staff that all seem overly worked and not loving their job. It’s pretty obvious.

I got a weird look from our server when I asked to sub mushrooms for bacon on my chicken burger, and then said he’d put the Mayo on the side (great) but it came with ketchup on the side, and no Mayo. If they were out, no mention was made.

Don’t try to order multiple dishes or you’ll get raised eyebrows and a comment like “that’s a lot of food” which seems kind of judgey.

Anyway, the banana bread and fruit was good, the chicken burger (Mayo issue aside) was good and would order again.

The California roll my husband ordered went down as one of the worst we’ve ever had. The spicy tempura roll was delicious. Order that instead. His Caesar salad was generous, but challenging to eat with the presentation. Maybe that’s because we ordered too much food for our small table.

Whatever you do, don’t use the valet. One of the only places we know that charges for valet after eating at the restaurant. $40. A ridiculous charge to use their amenities. Go to the other resort restaurants to eat. Not only will you get better service/food, but won’t be charged for parking.

My tofu stir fry was delicious, with bright, fresh vegetables. What astonished me was being asked if I wanted rice with it, because rice was not included! And they wanted $6 extra, on top of an already-pricey $24 for the dish. That's not a good value. Our server was outstanding, as was Cody at the bar.

Although the food was very good, the dinner service was not organized. Our appetizers ordered didn’t come until we were almost done with the main entrees. In addition, there was a mistake in the order so one person didn’t get his food until we were almost finished. As for appetizers, only one of two showed up and as I mentioned only near the end of the meal. Wait staff never checked on us. Wonder if waitstaff are new or overworked with labor shortage.

We ate at the KAPA Bar & Grill around sunset. We had a table overlooking the ocean and the setting was spectacular. There was a musician playing and it was a perfect evening. We were not guests at the hotel, but were treated graciously throughout our visit. Complimentary valet parking and a stroll around the beautiful grounds topped off the evening (along with pictures by the ALOHA sign). The ahi tuna salad was one of the best salads I have ever eaten.

Not what was expected. This place is essentially the bar attached to the pool at the Marriott. Nice staff and ok good but would not consider this a traditional bar/restaurant.

Just disappointed. Not their fault. We needed outdoor seating which they provided. But the rain started and there was no option to seat us under cover. Had to leave and go somewhere else.

Food and service were very good. They seemed a little short staffed (who isn't now days) but still very good.

My reasons for the 3 stars overall is because of the bar. The Cosmo I had was very good but when my husband asked about local (Hawaii) rum, gin or vodka we were told they didn't stock any. Another reason for the 3 stars overall is because the bar and restaurant closes at 8:00 (as mentioned in other reviews). That's OK but we glanced at the bar about 7:30 pm and all the liquor bottles on display behind the bar were missing because staff started closing up the bar at 7:30.

We were going to have an after dinner drink but decided to go elsewhere.

I'd recommend the restaurant, just plan for an early dinner.

Food was great. We had the short ribs and shared a salad. The ribs were amazing. The restaurant location is terrible. Right beside pool area. Constant commotion with people and kids walking by. Loud splashing of kids and screaming kids in pool. Consider moving restaurant to Humble Market location upstairs.

The view was incredible! They were kind enough to Cetus on the pool deck so we can watch the entire sunset. We especially like the mango frozen drink, the kids chicken fingers, and the grilled cheese. The service was great also. Would love to come back Time permitting
