Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali
Happy Hour: Monday - Sunday: 3:00pm - 5:00 pm
Dining Room: Monday-Sunday 4:45pm-9:30pm
This was our first time back at Leilani’s since their remodel kept them closed much of last year. They have done a great job of opening up their space so that every table can get an ocean view. Sunset is sheer bliss and they have upgraded everything from the floors to tables. The menu is a little smaller but still quite broad. Water and bread service were prompt and our waiter was friendly and helpful. Roasted beet salad was perfectly sized to split and beautifully presented. Mahi-mahi herb crusted sauce and seared ahi with sesame were excellent. We did not have dessert. Coffee was good though still no espresso drinks. Wine list long enough at about triple retail but that wine gets shipped a long way. Overall value better than many other view restaurants in Lahaina and you cannot match the people watching along the boardwalk at Whalers Village below. Will definitely return.
Food was not very flavorful
Very much enjoyed Leilani's on our first night this trip. Prices and food comparable to other restaurants in the same area. We plan to visit again on our next trip.
My second visit to the newly remodelled Leilani’s and it was a great evening. The dining room has a lovely airy feel. The staff are courteous, friendly and attentive and the food is really exceptional. It is Island inspired. Great fish dishes, which I recommend. The mai-tais are super and the desserts, particularly the hula pie is iconic. I’ve got to say that I’ll be back.
Excellent in every way...the staff were all so friendly and food was delicious!
This restaurant is like a well-oiled machine. Highly efficient! Very little waiting time on any front. the food is great as well.
Went on a girls trip to Maui not knowing what to expect. The service was spot on and the food was exceptional. We overlooked the beach and finished in time to snap sunset photos. I would definitely reccomend this special place!
Booked a 7:45pm reservation, but wasn’t seated until 8:20. It would be one thing if we walked in, but waiting for 35 minutes to be seated after we arrived for our reservation was not ideal. Food and service once seated was fine, but not necessarily worth waiting around for.
They did not honor reservation time and were disorganized in sitting people. Had to ask several times to be seated as I had a reservation. Will not be going back.
The ambiance and view were great. Seafood was some of the best we have had in Maui. Our server was excellent and attentive.
We had an excellent meal and the service and view were fabulous
My husband and I come here every year on our trips to Maui. This year we were surprised to see what a lovely job they did with the remodel, until we sat down. The new dining room chairs are painfully uncomfortable. Neither of us could find a comfortable position to sit in. It looks like there are 4 tables where the table backs up to a banquet. We might try that. Otherwise we will look for a place we can enjoy our dinner.
It was great! Steve was our server and he was amazing. So helpful and always checked in on us.
Our reservation was for 5:15 and they offered a special menu between 4:45 & 5:30 pm where you choose an appetizer, main dish & dessert for $27. We ordered and everything was delicious!
The food came out quickly, and was fresh and delicious. Beautiful view. I will be going back.
Wonderful service and the best fish I’ve had all week on the island.
It was ok not spectacular probably better places to eat in Maui
We went to the Happy Hour first which was great and then were seated upstairs for the meal. The view was amazing and the service was excellent.
38th Wedding Anniversary On Maui
We had a reservation but we weren’t seated for 20 minutes past the time of our reservation. Our food took forever to come and even though we told our server several times we only wanted water he continued to ask if we wanted drinks almost as if he just wanted us to order more so the bill was higher.
We’ve been here before renovation and enjoyed it. This last visit was a little of a disappointment. Food was ok, service was slow, and for the price, there are many other choices available.
Lovely sunset view
I've eaten at Leilani's form many years. This year, the food quality was lacking, the server placed the wrong order and by the time the order was corrected, my companion's food was cold. My meal was also cold when it finally arrived. Interestingly, my experience has been that when the restaurant makes a mistake, the manager comps a dessert or a drink. No "make ups" were offered here.
Fish tacos were to die for
Recently reopened after a full face lift. Great for sunset dinning!
Love Leilani's, we visit every year. Great food, wine and service at moderate prices. Great location. Highly recommend
Awesome food great service and good location near whalers village
Had salads and prime rib. Prime rib was excellent, salad was good.
Absolutely beautiful place. Food, view and service were exceptional. Price was moderate. Definitely try the Parmesan crusted fish.
The fish and seafood hot pot prep were amazing. It’s a great setting with ocean views and the staff service is excellent. We look forward to being regulars.
Everything was amazing! The service, the food &’the drinks! No one in our party had a thing to complain about! Definitely recommend and we will go back! Thanks Opentable for the recommendation! 😊☺️👍🏼🤙🏼💙
Food has dramatically gone down hill. Quality was very poor, under developed flavors and minimal menu options. Service was horrible-server had only two tables! Been a TS restaurant fan for 10+ years, not anymore!!
Great view, great food, great service. Nice end to our vacation.
Loved it in both the dining room & the downstairs grill. The steaks & prime rib upstairs were fantastic & the burgers & sloppy Joe were very yummy too. We will be spending many more lunches & dinners there in the future. Thank you! Nathan was our server upstairs & he is fabulous! We told him we’ll see in next July 2019.
Restaurant was surprisingly great as was our waiter. The prices were fair and the portions were generous. We truly enjoyed our meals!
One of our favorite places to eat on Maui. Great views, very nice tasty food and service, and a detailed book of allergies to make the menu work for anyone. We had an awesome sunset.
We went here on our last night in Maui to celebrate my 40th birthday. Loved this place! Food was delicious, service was impeccable & so friendly. We requested a table upstairs with a view of the ocean. They sat us right there! If you are visiting Maui, Leilani’s is definitely worth going to for a great meal!
