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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
