Nicely authentic Hawaiian food at a great price. Great for families. Our party of seven had several different entrees. All great. None disappointed. Friendly helpful wait staff.

Not what we expected for a father's day night out. Its appears to be a condo club restaurant so count on big family gatherings with kids running around. Ordered starter of calamari and coconut shrimp with pinot grigio. Starter arived almost instantly well before the wine which shows how much preparation was done (none?). Ate some of it, wine arrived, paid and left. Maybe, just maybe it suits the (condo?) families with fish n chips and wings, but it is absolutely not as described on their website, or on Open Table. Staff tried hard with covid constraints but no excuse for collecting the used plates with one hand while carrying the cleaner and cloth in the other. Drove to Lahaina to finish the meal and evening. My wife was understandably devastated. Our star ratings are on the generous side.

Food is good. Skip the macaroni salad, bland and mushy. Green salad is excellent with house dressing. Fish - chips- crispy and light batter. Mahi-Mahi fresh and very good
Poke bowl and calamari 👍
Drinks are creative and tasty.

So disappointed. We were here in n March and had an amazing experience — great drinks, fantastic food, a wonderful service. I don’t know what happened with n the last 3 months but it was AWFUL in every way. Even with a reservation it took forever to get seated, 40 minutes in and we were just getting water. The margaritas were undrinkable (and that’s hard to do to a margarita).

Hostess refused to seat us in lower half of restaurant by windows even though we had reservations and there were multiple empty tables there. Then she seated another family at one of those empty tables right after seating us. When we asked our waitress if there was some special request needed to sit by the windows, she said no and was confused. Later it came out that hostess was trying to help our waitress out by giving her a table in the area we were seated, which is fine, but the way she did it was kind of rude nonetheless. Lie waitress was really nice but forgot about 30% of our order. Not a huge deal, we had a pleasant dinner anyways and food was fine, but the whole experience became kind of awkward because of the hostess’s actions. Oh well!

We enjoyed our shrimp and vegetable tempura appetizer and dinner and drinks. The waiter was very pleasant and gave us suggestions on our drinks since we couldn’t decide which was sweeter of the cocktails. Beats having to cook dinner on vacation.

Wonderful service and excellent food! Came during happy hour and got some great deals! Happy hour is 3 to 6 pm everyday! Our waitress was awesome! It was apparent that she was dealing with difficult customers, but she was nice and and very helpful to us. It is a crazy and stressful time people, be nice to each other! Highly recommend!

Quick seating but waiter was new and did not understand about the Open Table reservation. Happy hour drinks were VERY watered down.

Food was ok on the most part. The mahi mahi fish tacos were superb. The non happy hour drink (Southern Cross) was excellent. The Shirley Temple for my child tasted like cough syrup (how hard is it to mix grenadine & sprite).
We asked for a burger with no cheese for our child and the waiter totally understood the request and repeated it back to us yet the burger came out with cheese and had to be sent back. He also told us that they had BBQ sauce but when the kitchen brought out the burger they they’ll us they don’t have BBQ sauce.

The website is very confusing. We asked about this as there appear to be two sites with the same name. We were informed that the original site was still up even though the restaurant was sold and had new ownership. The restaurant is now supposed to be a Mexican/ Hawaiian fusion.

If they can work out the bugs and provide food as good as the mahi mahi tacos they will do well.

Cocktails were only so so. The restaurant was only 1/2 full, yet they seemed short-handed/ overwhelmed.
The one highlight was the bus boy, he provided water, silverware, napkins, & was kind. The manager was our waiter, but he did not do a good job.
Wish I could rank higher. But in our week in Maui, we had great service & food everywhere, except at 5315.
Go to Safeway & buy milk and cereal rather than dine at 5315.

The fare was good; it's tasty and filling. It's not what I nor my wife would call "special," but it served the purpose and didn't break the bank. Another plus was that it was actually possible to book a table (albeit an early seating at 4:45), which is more than I can say about the rest of the sit-down restaurants in the area.

The service is -glacial- but friendly. It's best just to order a Mai Tai while you wait for your meal, and enjoy the view of the bay through the big picture windows (when the blinds are not covering them, that is).

Very disappointed. Service was poor, food was mediocre at best. We mentioned it was a special occasion and they seemed to do everything they could to ruin it. Felt crowded and somewhat unsafe given the tenuous post-pandemic time we were there. Kids and adults running about without masks

The food and drinks were enjoyable. The Niu shrimp were outstanding as was the luau plate I had. The Lau lau was good and the mahi-mahi was very moist. My chi chi kappa was very good as well. The single issue was the service — friendly enough but perhaps not sufficiently trained or attentive. The young server took our order for drinks, appetizer and main plates. The food appeared all together with the drinks coming last! Not sure what the issue was that led to that but not ideal. We had good food in a straight forward, a bit of a throwback atmosphere (think tiki everything).

We are in Maui during the time of Covid restrictions, so you got to give some slack to all the restaurants who are overwhelmed and understaffed. Had a lovely meal here last night with friendly service. Food was delicious. Glad we found it and look forward to returning.

With pandemic restrictions in Hawaii and most restaurants booked out 4 weeks or more, it's unbelievable that a restaurant isn't able to fill its tables. Now, I know why - why 5315 was the only restaurant with reservations available!

When we arrived for dinner, there were only 4 occupied tables in the restaurant. One large table got up and left because they hadn't been waited on, and another table got angry because it took so long to get their check. Meanwhile, the hostess turned away a 6 top that hadn't made reservations. This all should have been a heads up to us.

The food was clearly frozen (including the hamburger buns) and the fish smelled bad. Cocktails were sub-par to say the least. The bus boy dropped utensils with food on us. We told the waitress I was allergic to pineapple, and when we received our meal there were little cubes of pineapple sprinkled all over it.

When it was time to pay, the waitress presented us a $15 check. I asked what it was for because our check should be $105. She said, "I don't know. A lot of customers have been getting these!" WTF?? I suggested she had better look into it. She did and came back with a new check that seemed correct, but she couldn't give me a voided copy of the previous $15 check. Such a strange thing for a restaurant!

Don't go here. There is a reason why it's the only place in town with reservations. Mc Donald's is a step up compared to this!
