    The food was the best we had in Kaanapali or Lahaina. We were here for 10 nights and ate here twice. Both times the food was delicious. The calamari appetizer and ahi tuna were the best I’ve ever had. Jen was our server and was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

    I made our reservation a couple of months in advance. When we arrived, we were seated at an inside table by the kitchen door. There were several more desirable tables open and we asked to be moved but for one reason or another we could not. It took over 10 minutes after we were seated for someone to just come and give us water (and that was after I had to ask). Service was slow - no one took empty glasses from the table. After the meal, the server had taken our parking ticket to validate and had forgotten to give it back to us and we only realized it after we left the restaurant so we had to go back to get it. For what we paid for dinner, I was disappointed and would have expected better. I’ve dined here before and had a better experience the last time.

    Reception was really friendly so we had great experience at the beginning. The waitress to our table was just rushing things while its still more than one hour before closing: keep coming back asking if we are ready to order, not bring enough plates, asking us to pass our own plates to her to collect, AND - not even asking if we want dessert, and just rushing to get us bill! Other than bad service, appetizers were good, entrees are totally overpriced. Will not go back.

The food was beyond excellent. We had Parmesan crusted mahi-mahi and it was delicious! We highly recommend this restaurant!

    We found the food to be lacking. Parmesan crusted mahi mahi lacked flavor and the filet tasted like charred meat. Coconut shrimp was very salty. We did find the mashed potatoes to be good. It was just disappointing and underwhelming. We thought the service and location was wonderful and views outstanding, but ultimately we were there to eat and we were let down. I wouldn’t come back.

    I like Leilani’s ambiance, the views and drinks. The menu has been the same for a while. I usually order the prime rib and did so again. I was a little disappointed. The cut was really fatty. I had to cut the fat out and was left with a size of a filet mignon. The meat was a little chewy. Sides, were a few rainbow carrots and a leaf of kale. It’s Asparagus season! The mashed potatoes were fine. Maybe it is hit or miss. I’ll return and maybe order the same meal to compare. Loved the Manhattan!

    Excellent all around. Perfect spot overlooking happening Kaanapali beach! Live music from the beach bar area flowing into the dining room for a welcomed vibe. Waitress fantastic. Food delicious. Kids loved the mocktails and surprisingly the coconut shrimp appetizer. Wish we had room for dessert, looked exceptional. Would highly recommend and return here again and again!
