Nice looking restaurant. Server was initially very engaged, then was gone for long stretches. Ordered calamari. They brought shrimp. The runner said “the calamari is too tough so they gave you shrimp.” We asked the server who said they were out of calamari so they substituted shrimp. Seemed strange without asking us. The rest of the meal was fine—small portions. Big price. Likely wouldn’t return.

Went for the first time during restaurant week and I will definitely go back. The food was excellent as was our server and the rest of the staff. Our server checked on us as each course arrived to make sure everything was to our liking. Food and service is exactly what you would expect at a place like this. We had outside seating which I would definitely recommend. The tiki torches and distance from the hustle and bustle in the main part of the restaurant made for a quiet and intimate dining experience. Note for kamaaina: all starters and entrees are BOGO and drinks are 25% off year round.

We took advantage of the 2 for one Kamaaina special vrs. the Wailea Restaurant Week special. The portions are larger with a wider range of selections compared to the Restaurant week menu. The cost was comparable. We ordered the oishi sushi, mauka harvest salad and honey shrimp for appetizers. Absolutely "broke da mouth" delicious. The monchong catch of the day was perfect. The lamb chops were more medium rare than medium as requested so a bit chewy. The banana bread bar ala mode was a complimentary birthday dessert which was perfect to top off our dinner. Our server, Morgan was terrific!

We had the fixed price meal. Restruant Week . The food was high quality, however the server was not up to level one would hope for at this price.

Great dinner on our 10th anniversary. We were lucky to be visiting during restaurant week - so got exceptional value for our meal. After making the reservations far in advance and notifying them of the celebration, I would have hoped for a nicer table, maybe with more of a view. The bread they serve is really different and it would have been nice to get an explanation. All that aside, the scallops with udon was excellent!

Kō surpassed any of our expectations when a party of 7 of us friends decided to dine there for Wailea Restaurant Week. The service was spectacular, I entrusted my server to order my selections and he did not disappoint. The food was fantastic!! I was there with 6 colleagues of mine just dining as we celebrate our friendships we’ve built and the accomplishments we’ve have as a team and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to have our celebration! Thank you for a great dining experience!

Our server was great and explained the "restaurant week" specials and benefits. The shrimp and sushi appetizers were very flavorful with just the right spices, the sea bass entre hit the perfect balance with the MacNut crust. The shortrib was sweet and succulent at the same time. The cane fire cocktail had quite a nice spice and kick to it. Thanks for a great night!

My wife and i just got married and went to Ko to celebrate. The service was wonderful and the food was fantastic. My only challenge was the darkness of the restaurant made it difficult to read the menu.

Everything was so salty! I am a savory person and this was over the top salty.

We ordered steamed veggies and broiled chicken for my 13 months old son and I was wondering why he spat out everything I gave him. I tasted it and it was heavily salted. Yuck and why?! It’s a child’s meal and we specifically asked for it to be unseasoned as well.

Everyone’s dish at our table was overly salty. This was a disappointing meal and we had high hopes for it as they were so highly rated on both Open Table and Yelp.

Atmosphere is great. Dining over looks the pool area and had a classy resort feel to it. Service was excellent. Only downside for my wife and I was that we weren’t impressed with the sear it yourself on a hot stone - tuna appetizer. The stone does not stay hot enough after the first few pieces you sear. Need another stone if you get the added tuna pieces when ordering. Also the ribeye for $60 was not worth it at all. Not much flavor. Dessert was good though!

Our dining experience at Kō was spectacular. Robert did a great job at making sure we had what we needed to enjoy our meal and always made sure our glasses were full. And the bartenders kept us entertained as well. The food was very tasty and the service is outstanding. I definitely will be recommending Kō to my friends & family.

The ambiance is nice, the service was too much- asking every 5 minutes if everything is fine and interrupting our conversation didn’t feel good. The appetizers were nothing special. You can get deep fried calamari and mushrooms pie in any place. The main dish (catch of the day) was OK-ish.
So definitely not worth money, wouldn’t recommend.
