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.

Never again.

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!

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.

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 ;)

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!

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.

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.
