    Celebrated my 30th birthday here and it was fantastic! They wished me a happy birthday on arrival, and when we sat, and also comped our espressos (as we did not order dessert). The tako appetizer should not be missed, we both thought it was the best part of the meal. My husband got the Hawaiian red snapper special, and I had the rib eye, both were very good.

    Beautiful evening. Everyone was nice. Food was good as usual. It did take a long time for the main course to come. In fairness, we got there just after sunset and it was a full house. I really liked my cosmo and the shrimp tempura with pineapple chili sauce. My husband enjoyed the oushi sushi and the snapper. The coffee toffee ice cream was delicious.

    Seated in a remote corner with a reservation. Apps were good but fish special was a huge blob of grayish fish on the plate. Totally unappetizing. Cocktail was not good. Server took both away nearly untouched and did not inquire why. $300 dinner and a huge mistake and waste.

    Beautiful setting overlooking the pool and gorgeous gardens of the Fairmont… paired with a delicious array of delectable delights!! From a variety of poke, to prime rib, to typical eggs and bacon with waffles, to Asian fusion noodles and Korean chicken. Not to mention the incredible dessert selection, which we really did not have (and should not have had) room for but still went ahead and tried - each one was delicious. Recommend working up an appetite before going so you can truly do the Sunday brunch justice! Service was friendly and much better than other restaurants on the property!

    The lobster tempura is always my favorite. It was delicious. The sushi appetizer is wonderful too. The calamansi tart is a less tart version of key lime pie. All in all a nice dinner under the stars with excellent food and service.

    We started with “Ahi on the Rock” and the Green Papaya salad: both perfection. Followed with Grilled fresh Catch (monchong) and Seafood Lau Lau : so ono! The risotto that was under the monchong was literally the best ever & I make a mean risotto. Drinks were balanced and delightful. This was the best dinner on Maui in years, everything was spot-on. the service team did everything with grace and engagement. Very Happy!

    The food was very good, although the cocktails are definitely not worth the $22 USD each that they cost. We were pretty disappointed with the ambiance of the restaurant when we arrived. We were seated between a table with kids playing with toys and building blocks, and a party of 20 people that were very loud and also playing with toys at the table?? It didn't make for a very romantic date night with my wife haha. The service was good, although I had a hard time hearing our server over the noise. Overall, I would say I was mostly disappointed with the experience, but was happy with the food.

    Everything was great. We had dinner here last year and it was great. Their consistency is admirable; so hard to find in a restaurant! As in the past, the fresh catch with the coconut broth was delicious. The tempura spicy tuna roll was wonderful and the banana bread with ice cream is better than you can imagine. We'll be back!

    What a lovely evening! Five of us celebrated hubby’s birthday here and enjoyed every single minute. We shared the lumpia and bang bang chicken & somen noodle appetizers before proceeding to entrees. Two in our party raved about the delicate flavors in the fresh catch in lemon coconut broth. The others went for the more robust Korean braised short ribs. Lots of “mmms” and “ahhhs” and a bit of reluctant sharing during entrees. 🤣 And then dessert! It’s hard to choose a favorite among the house banana bread (almost like the best bread pudding ever), the ko ko puff and the calamansi tart. Ya know how it is when one bite gets left behind because no one wants to be the one to eat the last bite? Ya, didn’t happen. Service was spot on: attentive, personalized, but never intrusive. Thanks, Ko!

    We planned on making Ko the highlight of our dining experience here on Maui. Unfortunately, we we highly disapointed. I hand picked Ko as my birthday dinner location. Apps and drinks came in a timely manner, however thats where the experience takes a halt. I ordered the lamb med-rare and my girlfriend ordered the lobster tempura. About 25-30 mins in, the lobster came out. Just the lobster. So, we waited and waited. We eventually just told them to take the untouched lobster back so it would be hot and served with my food. Which still didn't come for another 25 mins. When I got it, it was med-well. I normally don't send food back, but I was over it at that point. Now, they were nice enough to comp our dessert. I'll give them that. But what really finished me off was the fact that a causasion gentleman, which I believe was the restaurant manager Literally walked right past our table and talked to every other table in the area except for ours. Now, our table was the first table in the lineup, so he couldn't say he didn't see us. He blantely ignored us. If he had of at least talked to us, then this review would have been at least 3 stars and ultimately get lost in the pile of reviews. I hope im the only one that has an experience like this on their special day.
