Very good calamari. Seared ahi and Parmesan crusted Mong Chong were excellent. Ginger Hoku is an awesome drink.
Was good but lots of changes due to Covid. Didn’t have a lot of our normal menu items.
Loved the ribs!
Great food, wonderful views and our server Kevin was great. I had the prime rib and my wife had the fish special of the day. The kids had the chicken and rib plate. Amazing.
Food and service was great, chairs were very uncomfortable.
This is an hugely popular tourist and local restaurant. Always booked with big crowds trying to get a table. It’s in the heart of Tourist country. Upstairs is a bit more formal with a greater menu to choose from. Downstairs is pretty much an average burger dive. Greeters and reception personnel are young and not very personable. Servers are very experienced and efficient and personable without being intrusive. Steaks and seafoods are fantastic. This is a must be and happening place. Get reservations and have patience.
Best food on the island. Loved the coconut shrimp and the hula pie. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Nice family meal short walk from the Sheraton Maui . We would definitely return to restaurant on our next trip
The daily fish was around $35 but it was a nice serving with mashed potatoes and slaw. The BBQ ribs and chicken was a joke! 4 short rib and a chicken tender for $27. My husband went home hungry. No fish tacos were offered upstairs which was frustrating.
Crab cakes were good, small portion for the price. Calamari breaded and fried very large strips but only about 8 pieces. We couldn’t order fish tacos upstairs. Didn’t know there were restrictions for which menu was served upstairs vs. downstairs. We would have chosen downstairs. So we had 4 people with two appetizers, 3 entrees, one appetizer as an entree and one dessert. Also had 3 drinks which cost $43. Parmesan crusted fish was dry and over cooked. Other than the view, this was very disappointing. We were here years ago and the quality really declined. Hula pie was good though. My son had ribs and chicken and said it was pretty good. My advice is find somewhere else if you want a quality meal. Location doesn’t justify a $275 bill alone.
Our server was awesome! But the hostess staff and person who sat us were a little rude. We had to wait for about 20 minutes after our reservation time.
Food was good and fast - hula pie was a hit!
Good food. Great service. Perfect location for us since we are staying at one of the resorts nearby. Will definitely come back again.
The menu could have been expanded but overall we had a great experience. Love the location and a dessert was to die for.
Choose reservation time specifically to have the “chef’s table” special. Called a few weeks prior to confirm this was available. When we went to order, the server said they were not doing the special at this time.
It was great food! Beautiful view . We were seated fast and severed fast.
Great sunset view from the balcony
Lovely restaurant, great service, most of our food was great. The one issue we had with one entree dish was corrected quickly. They also gave us a hula pie to celebrate our anniversary!
Food and service were fantastic … our table location was disappointing.
Easy and convenient dinner in Whalers Village. Food was just ok.
We had a wonderful first night in Kaanapali beach thanks to leilanis! Kevin was our server and he was attentive and kind from start to finish. Seafood was excellent and cooked to perfection. Kevin was so kind as to comp our dessert since it was our honeymoon. Hula pie was AMAZING! Highly recommend visiting leilanis 🙂
Waiter Kevin was very good. Everything we ordered was very tasty. Nice walk back to the Westin. I would recommend reservations. Place is big. But also very popular.
Great last name got on Maui server was exceptional / food good however not great mashed potatoes and jicama salad too much starch mahi make ( very good )
Used to be overall favorite not so much now
Early dinner and our party of 12 had to be split due to COVID. Food was great but one in our said their steak had no seasoning
LT did a fantastic job!
Chefs tasting menu was no longer available (we were told they stopped it about two weeks prior). We were surprised to see such limited offerings on the menu. We got seated in the back behind the stairwell, so not much to see for a view. We went in with higher expectations, but overall the experience was pretty average.
Great staff, food, service, and atmosphere! Highly recommended!
Awesome as always!
Had the best meal yet on our stay in Maui. The Parmesan swordfish was moist and juicy, cooked to perfection. Husband had the Hot Pot. Eddie, our waiter, was the best! Friendly, courteous and attentive.
Will be back. Great food and service. Promptly seated at reservation time. Would not recommend attempting to visit Leilanis without a ressy.
John was an excellent waiter very friendly and took good care of us.
Excellence in all areas.
We had a very nice dinner, with the exception that the Poke appetizer we ordered never showed up. Our entrees were very good and were promptly served, so not having the appetizer was not a big deal.
Food, service and waitress was very good. Had no complaints.
We ordered two filets one with lobster. The filets had a charred taste the lobster was ok not great. The veggies were not very good. The highlight of the meal was the hula pie. The service was excellent. Unfortunately, we will not be back. Over priced for the food quality.
Food, ambiance, service, all great! Really is on the beach!
The food was delicious! We had the petite fillet and lobster tail. Great deal!
I’m sure all the employees of the islands are feeling the pressure of the increase of visitors. Even through this craziness the staff was courteous and helpful. To those who will be visiting, please be kind , courteous and patient.
We sat in the upper restaurant, it was fine. Nothing special. The beach restaurant may have been better and has different food options, apparently. Underwhelming and basic food. Drinks were ok. Again nothing great. Fine for dinner with kids if that’s what your needs are. Wouldn’t go here for a date night or special occasion.
