    We ordered the hummus for appetizer. The watermelon radishes and carrots were good but the chips stole the show! They were totally different than what we are used too. Taste great with just a hint of salt. The shrimp and pasta dish was good but way too much pasta. Portions could’ve been better. Not enough shrimp for the amount of pasta. Catch of the day was good.

    Leilani is our go-to restaurant because food is excellent and service is top notch. I wish they had more items on the menu because we eat there so often but you just can't go wrong with Leilani the restaurant or their bar.

    We were staying near Leilani’s and tried it for dinner on our first night in Maui. We had chicken and ribs and the seared ahi with coconut prawns to start. Everything was really tasty. They offered a beautiful ice cream dessert since we were there celebrating a birthday.

    Lobster was great however the prime was not as good as it used to be! Also no bread anymore which we missed! Ambiance not as special as it used to be either! Server was not very friendly and didn’t offer any info on specials at all! We’ve been coming to Leilanis for 37 years and found that things have changed for dinner than years ago however lunch fish tacos is still the best & we have those often!

    Where we were seated was okay but not the best. Prices were very expensive for what you got. Don’t understand something. You charge top dollar but you don’t even give bread at the beginning of the meal. We have been there a couple of times and always don’t seem to be that satisfied after we’ve left.

    Good and interesting drinks. Coconut shrimp not overdressed nor overcooked and a great dipping sauce. Big eye tuna sashimi excellent. But the highlights were Mac nut crusted mahimahi ... with plenty of an excellent sauce. Ono well prepared with an interesting relish. Finally, how can you go wrong with hula pie?

    Our waiter was rude and obnoxious when we informed him we had a gift card for a free dessert. He scolded my wife and stated that we should have informed him beforehand and would have to get the manager to adjust the bill. What an @#$hole! I can't believe he waits tables here.
