This has to be the worst meal we had on Maui in a decade. All four of us had inedible entrees. It’s overpriced and tasted like reheated frozen food lacking in flavor and didn't seem like the staff cared.
Outstanding service, great food, staff very attentive to all our needs.
Good to see Corinne, Randy and Roland back. They have helped us many times over the years. Their personal warmth and friendliness make for a great dining experience. Lavender Shrimp, Oishi Sushi, Lobster Tempura, Short Rib, Seafood Lau Lau all excellent. And the birthday chocolate cake with coconut gelato, a rich finish. A great place to take friends!
We had a great dinner look forward to come in again
Thought I’d have view of sunset
EVERY single item on the menu is delicious. We never miss eating here when we are in Maui. Once, twice, even 3 times!
The food was delicious, the chocolate cake dessert was amazing! Overall very enjoyable dinner and would recommend the macadamia nut crusted fish
Lovely and delicious evening at Ko! We'd been there for lunch a couple of times but dinner is an elevated experience. The seafood (sushi pupu and baked fish entrees) were mouthwateringly good and had perfect textures. Service was personal, attentive and friendly, and the ambiance was wonderful and romantic under lighted palms. Wine and food prices are high but you get what you pay for. Would return.
Exceptional restaurant! We've been in Maui for almost a week and thus far have not been overly impressed with many meals until we arrived at Ko. Setting is incredible. The staff is warm and inviting. The service exceptional. The menu has something for everyone and the food is AMAZING! Portions are decent and the prices are Maui crazy. However at least here it's worthwhile. The cook it yourself Ahi is exceptional.
Best service and knows me by last name every time l dine there.
This is a restaurant we patronize every year. Misty, our waitress this year, was amazing! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but the Ahi on a rock, Lobster Tempura, Rib Eye, and the macadamia nut crusted fresh catch are amazing. Can't leave out the Red Curry chicken either.
The wine list is fair, but I live in Napa, so take that with a grain of salt ;)
The coconut shrimp with lavender honey appetizer was exquisite...as was the mahi mahi in lemongrass broth.
Aloha Cara and mahalo for your 5-star review. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed our island inspired cuisine! You definitely had some of our local favorites! We hope you visit us again. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
I vow to never go out on Valentine’s Day because service is not the norm. And I did not realize the menu was fix price. My tempura was really oily. Never had a bad meal at Ko. So toda my is not the norm.
Aloha, thank you for leaving this valuable feedback. We strive to go above and beyond for our guests and I'm sorry to hear this experience fell short. Mahalo for pointing out this is not the norm, we hope to welcome you back to make up for your experience. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Incredible! The food was spectacular and our server Christina was remarkable! I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more!
Aloha! Mahalo for your 5-star review! We look forward to celebrating your kind words with Christina! Come back and visit us again soon, Lisa Nordsrom | Senior Venue Manager
It was very ok. Poor service, we were seated and didn’t even get water for the first 20 minutes. Food was average, not worth the price.
Mahalo for your 5-star review. We hope to welcome you back to Ko soon! Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Server and bartender didn’t know how to make a Gibson. First on was a gimlet...second one was watered down so much it was in drinlkable. They didn’t have cocktail onions so on the third one put regular onions in the drink!!! Bread was an embarrassment for a place charging what this place charges...little white bread pop ups. Food was average. For $56 lamb chops and $49 Lau Lau...food should better be more than average. I will never go back there again or any restaurant in the Fairmont!
Love the food and their service!
Aloha Malia - mahalo for your 5-star review. Come back and visit us soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager

Aloha and mahalo for your excellent feedback! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your evening with us. We hope to welcome you again soon. Mahalo, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Service was terrible. Arrived at 6:30 for a 7:00 reservation. Had a drink at the bar, our table sat dirty the whole time at bar. At 7 we approached the hostess, and stood there while she cleaned the table. Once sat it took an hour to get our appetizer. Entrees came out cold, didn’t bother with dessert. Service was terrible, food was bad, I would never go back. You’d think in a high end hotel the restaurant would be great. There are many other better places to go for dinner.
Aloha Melanie. I am also very disappointed to learn of the unsatisfactory service you received while dining with us. This approach is not in-line with our service standards and is unacceptable. I sincerely apologize you experienced this and have shared your comments with the manager to ensure this type of experience is not repeated. I truly appreciate your feedback. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Lovely setting, excellent dinner & wine & our server, Corinne & hostess, Sylvia, we’re both gracious @ knowledgeable. A great evening!
Aloha Stephanie and mahalo for taking the time to leave such a great review. Your kind words will be shared with Corinne and Sylvia! We hope to welcome you back for another great evening. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Another night at Ko that was absolutely wonderful. Lisa Was our server and went above and beyond with service and ensuring everything went wonderful. The food, always so fresh and delicious, lighting and ambiance... perfect. Roland was wonderful as well. He ensured we had everything we needed and supported Lisa very well. Peni, the manager executed a wonderful evening flow and ensured service, food and drinks we’re delicious!
Fantastic in every way!!!!
Aloha Sue - so happy to hear you had a fantastic evening! Come back and visit us again soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager

Great service and food was excellent!! Bravo Ko’s for your remarkable menu and keeping Maui No Ka Oi.
Aloha Makawaomama and mahalo for your great review! We love sharing our remarkable menu and we're so happy to hear you enjoyed it. We hope to welcome you back soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
We had 4 appetizers and loved the ahi cubes and shrimp with lavender cream sauce. The wine was excellent. We also thought the service and timing was very good. We are locals and were disappointed that since the restaurant reopened in November that they went from 2 for 1 appetizers or entre and 25% off for drinks to now a 15% discount on food alone. Also they have a poor selection of non alcoholic beers (O'Douls). The locals are struggling and to drastically change the discount doesn't seem like they are supporting their locals at this tough time.
Aloha! Mahalo for sharing your feedback with us. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your appetizers and our delicious wine selections. We truly appreciate your feedback on our Kama'aina changes and please know that it will be passed on to our leadership team. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Love the oishi sushi and the selections of deserts!
Aloha Malia, mahalo for the 5-star review! We're so happy to hear that you loved our famous oishi sushi and our delicious desserts! We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Our server was amazing. Best fish I have had in years.
Aloha! Mahalo for your 5 star review. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the service and our locally caught fish. We hope to welcome you back soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Fantastic service, beautiful setting, and delicious meal!
Aloha Paul - mahalo for your 5 star review! We're glad you enjoyed Ko's al fresco setting and Chef's award-winning menu. We hope to welcome you back soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Food was ok. Alcohol was watered down. Server was excellent. Prices are a little to high.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I'm delighted you found the service excellent. However, it is disappointing to read that you were not impressed with our food and cocktails. We value your honest feedback and it will be shared with the leadership team. We certainly hope to welcome you back again in the future. Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Always a pleasure to eat here...one of our favorite restaurants on Maui. We had the Lumpia, Lobster Tempura and Grilled Lamb Chop which were all delicious!
Aloha Kikihi and mahalo for your great review! I'm so happy to hear we are one of your favorite restaurants on Maui and that you enjoyed three of my favorite dishes! We hope to welcome you back soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Food was great. Service was TERRIBLE. For the cost of the meal, they need to be a lot of better at service.
Aloha and thank you for taking the time to share your candid feedback with us. We constantly are looking to reviews for opportunities to grow and improve. While I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the delicious food, I'm disappointed to hear that the service did not meet your expectations. Your remarks regarding our service are taken very seriously and will be addressed. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Wonderful atmosphere and every course on the menu was excellently prepared. The rib eye was amazing!!!
Mahalo Matthew for your great review, I'm happy to hear you've enjoyed Chef's amazing creations. We hope to welcome you back soon. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Disappointing overall experience! 3 1/2 hours for dinner-Party of 10 with 6 kids. Too many complaints to list. Will never dine there again. Poor choice for our NYE meal. One positive-they nailed the dessert with the creativity.
Aloha and mahalo for your candid feedback. I'm sorry to hear we missed the mark with your overall dining experience. We truly hope we can welcome you back for the dining experience we are known and loved for. Warmest aloha to you and your family, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Stunning views of the pool property and ocean beyond. Very pricey but delicious. Service is very good, but needs a bit of work to match the overall experience. Service seemed a touch too casual and ‘diner like.’
Aloha Scott, and thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the stunning views and our property. We value your feedback very much and will share it with our team. Mahalo for choosing Ko Restaurant and we hope to see you again. Warmest aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
