Beautiful cut of prime rib laid over cauliflower. The only thing you can taste in the prime rib is the awful cauliflower. Ate a third of it and trashed the rest

Service was good and attentive. Very nice view of the ocean

Food was very good but there seems to be fewer choices. Service was a bit slow but we were not in a hurry and it was prime time on a Saturday evening. Pleasant staff.

We had the seafood hot pot and a cheeseburger. Both executed very well. The hot pot had fish, mussels, tiny lobster and shrimp in a yummy tomato saffron broth with fresh kale and one arancini (great touch) . This is dairy and gluten free except for the panko on the rice ball and tiny amount of Parmesan. Very good cheeseburger cooked as ordered. The waitress was very attentive and the food came out after an appropriate amount of time. We didn’t have cocktails but they offer all types alcohol.

No seating in the dining room. Had to sit at a high top overlooking the grill. The food was really good, our sever was fantastic. The food was a bit pricey, but considering we are in Maui, I suppose it’s normal.

Beautiful setting, great service, good food. My fish tasted great but I though my veggies needed to be cooked a bit more. Maybe just a matter of preference. Very nice restaurant, I would go back. The views are outstanding.

We have eaten at Leilani’s many times. The food and service have been consistently good. What I don’t like, even with a reservation there is a 10-15 minute wait. The restaurant juggles reservations and non reservations, which causes the wait.Another pet peeve is feeling rushed. Once we tell the server that we want to take our time, they usually abide by it

First time eating here. Very good meal and server was excellent. Shared all the specials in detail. Went with another couple who spend a lot of time in Maui. They thought the menu pricing in March for the same place was higher than in January but it was comparable to many other restaurants in the area in March.

After a wait of 25 minutes for our reservation, we enjoyed our evening. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Our mai tai cocktails were excellent. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Various seafood ordered by rest of family was excellent. My pork ribs were also great. Hula pie was a fitting dessert and enough for 4 of us. Price was high but that is Hawai’i.

We got seated 40 minutes after reservation. Waiter seemed annoyed and when we used our credit from open table waiter was not familiar with process. So whole night less then expected and no one seemed to care. Been coming for years. So disappointing. Hope it gets better

We both ordered the chowder. It was warm, but Luke warm at best. Both had fish. The veggies and mashed potatoes were cool and fish was warm. Seemed like they had it sitting under a heating lamp for a long time with the light off. Very disappointing meal on our last night on Maui. Won’t go here next year.

There are so many places to eat...this is over priced. I would have never chosen to go here if I knew it wouldn’t be obnoxiously amazing. My friend ordered lobster tail and it was rubbery, not worth $50. The only plus was the birthday cake they gave my girl! It was amazing and we loved it.

I had the pork ribs which are delicious.
The side macaroni was very very salty.
The coleslaw had very little flavour.
The service was excellent.
The view, restaurant and atmosphere is very nice.

The venue is beachfront, openair. I ordered prime rib, it was just ok, not very tender. I also added the “1/2 lb crab legs add on for $27. O M G , 3 6” pieces in an order 2 were 1/2” the 3rd maybe 1”, what a rip off. I will say our salads were very good. My husband ordered Huli Huli chicken for $32.00 more like the size of a Quail. So the bottom line, just so so for the money

We always go to Leilani's when in Ka'anapali - this time for our 35th anniversary we went twice in the same week! Food is consistently well prepared and delicious. We like the variety of choices of fresh fish and sides. And the location is among the best in Ka'anapali. Book just before sunset so you are seated for a wonderful sunset each night. And with the boats moored offshore and the footpath traffic, you'll want to have your camera with you.
This trip, the service was exceptional. Maybe it was because we were dazzled by the mix of dazzling sunset and the great tasting fresh fish entrees. Seriously, we ate here twice because the first experience was soooo good. Staff was excellent.
Very popular, so book early to get best (sunset!) time.
