Mother's Day Menus & Specials
Kō is celebrating Mother's Day with a special brunch and live music. We're offering a delicious menu of coconut curry bisque, deep-sea red crab meat, duck & shiitake dumplings, hand-tossed salads, lobster tails, macadamia nut crusted konpachi, tenderloin, and a fresh strawberry dessert just for mom.
Food was pretty great! The Lau Lau specifically was delicious. Expensive, but the portion sizes were quite big. They helped me and my fiancée celebrate our engagement with complimentary champagne as well.
Best meal this whole trip! Ahi on the rock and lobster tempura for dinner! Can’t go wrong!
Pricey. Service a little slow. Didn’t think it was worth $50+ for seafood entrees. My wife’s scallops were good, but only got 3 small ones for $52 or so.. drinks a little watered down too, old fashioned was meh.
Made reservations for patio a month ahead, ended up sitting inside- busy, understandable, but just not great overall.
Our experience at Ko was fantastic. My husband and I went here for the first night of our honeymoon and it was the best decision. The service, food, and ambiance were above and beyond what we expected. We made a reservation and the hostess, Sylvia, sat us immediately with a beautiful view of the sunset. Our server, Lo, was incredibly kind and attentive. He was so fast with everything, we never had to ask for anything, not even a water refill. For starters, we had the macadamia nut crusted shrimp and coconut curry soup. These dishes were out of this world. So fresh, hot, and delicious. For mains, my husband and I chose one surf and one turf to share between us. He chose the Korean braised short ribs and I chose the tempura lobster. They were incredible. I can’t get over how fresh and hot the dishes were. Lastly, we asked Lo if he would make a recommendation for desert and coffee because everything was so good. He ought us the brined butter banana bar and a latte for my husband. I’m still dreaming about that dessert and the latte was the perfect touch to pair with it. While we were eating, we wanted to grab some quick sunset pictures and the hostess, Sylvia, was kind enough to go over and reorient our table and fix the chairs so we could get the perfect view. When we were first arrived the sun was pretty fierce so we were positioned away from the sun, but we thought that was such a thoughtful touch for her to move it while we snapped some pictures. Overall, I would come back here in a heartbeat. The only thing that beats great food, is great service and Lo and Sylvia went above and beyond to provide an incredible dining experience.
Our family had an incredible meal with wonderful service. The view overlooking the pool toward the ocean made it all the better. The food was prepared so well that even our kids who are picky eaters loved it.
We selected from their attractive seafood menu since we are in Hawaii. Their ahi with clever portable hot plate for searing to taste was delicious and their bouillabaisse-like seafood stew which Ko calls Zarzuela, with delicious saffron broth, included shrimp, mussels, clams, scallops, and a lobster tail, with small chunks of chorizo, was absolutely outstanding. We highly recommend this dish.
Service was great, outdoor seating was comfortable, and the ambiance of the new facility was pleasant.
All in all, this was a great dining experience. Five stars!
Food was fantastic and presentation was also very nice. Outdoor seating felt pretty safe regarding COVID. Masks required. Beautiful view.
Great food and great service! One suggestion need to cater to local residents and offer better discounts!
Aloha and mahalo for your review. We truly appreciate your local support and we're so happy to hear you enjoyed your Kō experience. We appreciate your feedback and I have passed along your suggestions to our leadership team about our Kamaʻaina offerings. Warm aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Everything was amazing! We went for a birthday celebration and the food was delicious, service was great, every time we go it’s awesome!
Anniversary dinner. We loved it all!!!
Excellent food! We had the mauka harvest salad, seafood lau lau, and bone in rib eye. Everything was delicious and the flavors were very unique. For dessert, our favorite was the brown butter banana bar as recommended by our server. It wasn’t too sweet and just melts-in-your-mouth good!!! This was our splurge dinner on our vacation and it was worth it. You can’t ask for better ambience - we were seated outside in perfect Maui weather in the beautiful grounds of The FairmontHotel. Come early to walk the beach path along the cliff for amazing ocean views before dinner. Very romantic location.
Aloha Bijoustein and mahalo for leaving such a helpful and amazing review! You had some of the local favorites, what a treat! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed everything from start to finish and we appreciate your suggestions. Sending you warm aloha, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager

Service seemed a little slow but it’s my understanding the restaurant had gotten very busy very quickly following the loosening of pandemic rules. Otherwise, perfect!

We were sat at a table behind a temporary wall with many tables available. We were told the tables were reserved for others but we finished our dinner before any open table was used except for one. Disappointing!

We're very sorry to learn that we fell short for you. Please know your comments have been shared with our management team about properly training for our seating expectations.

There was an issue with my husband’s food and the manager Andrew was told about it from our server Misty ~ upshot was that my husband got a NEW meal. OUTSTANDING and GREATLY APPRECIATED management choice. Kudos. Our concern was addressed and remedied. Refreshing service ~ thanks again!

Worst meal of our trip. Glacial & non-existent service. Take out Chinese a lot better at home in NYC. Do NOT recommend this restaurant at all.
Aloha and thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize that your dining experience at Kō did not meet your expectations and apologize that you left unimpressed. We sincerely hope you will give the restaurant another opportunity in the future. Best wishes, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Delicious food... service a bit slow but they indicated it was their Horst busy day since pandemic!
Aloha Drob, mahalo for your review and understanding as we are growing through our reopening. We are excited to be welcoming back guests for Chef's delicious creations. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and hope we can welcome you back for the attentive service we are known for. Mahalo, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager
Service: friendly, attentive, a bit salesy. I liked our server, she was fun and polite.
Food: good, though a bit expensive for the quality and level of expertise coming out of the kitchen. To be expected for a hotel restaurant.
Drinks: honestly not good. The Mai Tai tasted like it came out of a pre-mix box. Banana bread old fashioned was awful. It’s practically a crime that they are charging $16-$18 for dive bar drinks.
Aloha and mahalo for your honest review - we look to feedback such as yours as to how we may improve our dining experience. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the service and food. Please know your feedback regarding our Mai Tai and Old Fashioned has been shared with our leadership team to address. We hope to welcome you back to Ko for the experience we are known and loved for. Mahalo, Lisa Nordstrom | Senior Venue Manager

Wish we were sat with a better view
Great fish, 3 wok fried and a lemongrass something. Mochong was bomb.
The service and food was outstanding
Highly recommend this restaurant
