    We enjoyed a wonderful brunch at Ko during a recent visit. The authentic Hawaiian dishes were tasty, fresh, amply stocked and well presented. They had traditional American brunch foods as well but we would encourage you to try something traditional and new. It enabled us to try some new dishes to us without committing to a full plate and we honestly loved everything we tried. The champagne and fruit juice flight was also tasty. The only suggestion we have is to provide ample shade for all seats as it gets hot on the sunny days.

    There were some great hits, and a couple of misses with the food. Don’t waste your calorie count on the loco moco, it was unseasoned and a lot of food. The best bites were the brown butter banana bread and the mac-nut sticky bun - delightful crunch.

    Server couldn’t have been more lovely. Kids meals were great. Everyone else’s (4ppl) food came out together except mine. Mine finally came out After everyone else was done eating and it was a chicken dish — I ordered off the vegetarian menu & let server know multiple times I was a vegetarian so had to go back. By the time it finally came out we’d been there 1.5hrs and my 3 kids were beyond exhausted after ling day at pool. Made for a very frustrating experience for our 15 year wedding anniversary.

    The fish (monchong) special with the Mac nut and kale pesto was delicious. The lobster tempura was less than stellar. The tempura batter was too heavy and I later had indigestion from the grease. It was served with side sauces and they were less than impressive. Service was great. Sadly we hoped to see the sunset but most all of the tables and the restaurant’s placement at the hotel doesn’t allow for a view of the ocean.

    We made our dinner reservation about 6 months in advance even though we were not staying in the fairmont.When we arrived the hostess asked us for our room number and we let her know we were not staying in the resort. She then proceeded to try and seat us as far on the outskirts of the dining area as she could we Asked for a better seat with a view she then tried to seat us inside at the back of the Restauraunt with no view again I stated that wouldn't work we would like a table with a view. She got a bit rude and said okay then pick any table you want. We did and probably the best seat in the house overlooking the tranquility pool. It shouldn't matter if we were staying there or not. Better training for this particular hostess is needed. After we finally got our seat the dining experience was amazing. When we left the hostess also had an attitude.

    Loved the welcoming demeanor from the moment we checked-in at the hostess desk. The staff was very attentive throughout our dining experience. Misty, our server, was delightful! We ordered appetizers, a soup, and various entrees - beautifully presented and delicious. If we get to return to Maui, I would not hesitate to make a reservation at Ko again. Thank you for the excellent service and food.

    Service and environment was nice, but food was just ok. The sea bass was well done and lacking in flavor. Chocolate cake was also on the dry side. Passion fruit mojito overly sour. Sadly, I don’t think we’ll be back.

    We asked for a table in the shade and they put us outside I'm the sun anyway. Food and drinks took forever. We had a reservation for 530 and were seated right away but did not eat until 645 and did not leave till 730. A simple coke took over 15 minutes after requesting it. The manager delivered our desert to the table next to us and then realized his mistake and moved it to our table without even saying sorry. Having our desert delivered to someone else and then moved to us was kind of unappealing. We ate ate Spago, Humuhumu, Morimoto and Molokini Bistro and Nick's Fish Market and all were much better than Ko for food and service.
