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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Our meal was fantastic! We were seated right away with a wonderful view of the ocean. Our server was very attentive and seemed he really enjoyed his job. The Hula pie was to die for. We shared a piece as it is VERY large. This is always our favorite when we come to Maui & they never disappoint.
