Very good calamari. Seared ahi and Parmesan crusted Mong Chong were excellent. Ginger Hoku is an awesome drink.

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.

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!

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.

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 🙂

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.

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.

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.
