Excellence in all areas.
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.
Very limited menu and very expensive.
Leilani’s was always terrific pre pandemic! Great selection of great food. Not that way now. Hope it gets back to ore pandemic quality and selection.
Delicious food. Beautiful setting. Wonderful service. Thank you!!
Very limited menu. We were seated inside but there is an outside area. It almost seemed like two different restaurants. Not bad, not great. $100 for the two of us and I had an appetizer as my entree. One cocktail each.
A great evening with great food . A perfect table to overlook the ocean couldn’t have asked for a better place to celebrate my husbands birthday. Our waiter was was excellent too
Kevin was awesome! Great food and atmosphere.
It was our honeymoon, and such an amazing experience! Our service was fabulous, our food was phenomenal and the view 🥰 was incredible. Perfect way to start our trip!
Food was horrible, service was good. Place went downhill from a a few years ago. Sad, but skip. Big disappointment.
Fish taco has a single large piece of fish with great sauce. The vinergrette salad fresh and nice.
Everything was amazing!
Nice location. Food good with great service
Despite reservations made two months ago, got a lousy inside table that was sticky on top. Very slimmed down menu offered few choices, including only one fish preparation, the same fish prep every other Maui restaurant has - Parmesan crusted mahi-mahi. Food was just ok. Take out from a fish market would have been better. Very disappointing.
Food was great! Service was great! Views were amazing! Highly recommend.
Very limited menu. Only area to update when possible.
Wanted to celebrate my 55th birthday at a nice place on the beach so I chose Leilani’s! We got there, checked-in and was told they would text us when our table was ready. We received the text, my husband checked-in with the host, she said she would let us know when the table was ready. Not sure why they told us that since we received the text message. We waited 15 more minutes, multiple people were seated (they were also a party of 2). We continued to wait (now 20 minutes past the time we received the text). My husband went back up and asked again, they said “oh we will seat you now”!
Get to the table, waited for just water, then finally the server came over. Meanwhile there was a large group of people to our left and to our right…both EXTREMELY LOUD and obnoxious! Come to find out they were all together. We finally order, food comes 10-15 minutes later and the screaming and obnoxious behavior from the group was just OVER THE TOP! The waiter came to ask us how our food was, we told them it was fine but the noise was ridiculous! He said he would move us, yeah, he just moved us to the other side of this obnoxious group! Oh, I forgot. In our reservation it was said this was for my birthday and the host commented to my husband about this dinner was for my birthday! Not one word was mentioned by our waiter yet our waiter brought a piece of Hula Pie to another party that was celebrating their birthday and said it was on the house. Terrible experience!!!!!
The host staff was horribly rude and unaccomodating.
Did the Chef’s tasting and it was good but the portions were tiny, tiny.
As usual everything was perfect at Leilani’s. The seared ahi, the Parmesan crusted Mahi Mahi-and the filet were all cooled perfectly and delicious!
The space is very comfortable with nice ocean views. The staff was very accommodating. The food was pretty bad. We got the chicken and ribs and the seafood hot pot. The chicken was an over cooked thin piece of chicken. The ribs were average. The hot spot was far too salty and the fish was over cooked. I think this would have been fine if the dishes were not exceeding 30 dollars. We would have been better off at monkey pod next door.

Food is good at Leilani’s
Life is good once again on Maui
Unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations. We really were looking forward to our meal .The ceviche appetizer was a very small portion with barely any fish. The entree’s were lackluster without any taste we had the chicken, ribs and burger. For such a beautiful location how sad that the meal was awful. My suggestion is avoid this restaurant and visit Hula Grill instead where the quality of food and taste is much better.
Restaurant sits in second level of shopping area with sites of ocean and sunset but right in the area of beachside pedestrian walk and location where catamarans dock to let the sunset cruise customers unload. Steak was thin and over cooked and dry. Chicken and ribs were ok but for the price just average. Made a reservation months in advance for a seaside table, but got stuck in the back. Won’t be back.
Disappointing dinner. Mahi Mahi was tough/Dry and crab cakes poorly prepared.
We love the food and service.
The waiters suggestions were spot on
On time and service is great and the food is delicious
Excellent service, delicious food, and stunning views! This is a must when visiting Maui!🌺
Menu was too limited and portions were too small.
Our waiter was charming. The view of the ocean sunset set was amazing and the food was supberb. I had the Hot Pot and my husband had Montong crusted fish. Both were excellent.
Nick was our waiter for the second time. Very attentive service. The food was great.
Always great. My wife and I each had a the mongchun fish special and it was fantastic. Was parmasian crusted. My son has chicken and ribs which was fantastic. Mai tais are great. Food was delicious but portions are huge. Definitely will go back. Need to Make a reservation.
The menu needs updating. We were turned off by the boring selection on the menu. And please get Coca Cola. The cola you have is disgusting and tastes like diet.
You need clams, lobster bisque, some pastas. Get with the times. we would not come back here.
What a wonderful vacation dinner spot!
We shared the Prime Rib and it was great! With reservations it was a short wait, and well worth it. Our friends had the Ahi steak and said it was great!
Great service! Food was ok, we got the chicken and ribs as well as the Parmesan crusted, and they were good, but nothing special. We will be back for sure! It was a great environment and experience overall!
