We welcome walk-ins and will seat your party as tables become available, while you wait you may wish to shop and or to grab a drink next door in The Shops at Wailea.

Another wonderful dining experience at Lineage. Food was delicious as always and we tried out some of the specialty cocktails this time - super yummy. The gin special with the lime juice (whose name I don't recall) was really delicious.

And our host, Joshua, was so welcoming, explained the approach to the menu, answered all of our questions (three of us are vegans) and was wonderfully attentive. He's the best!

Per usual food was amazing. There was however a rather rude family that had a tantrum over their table. This happens I know but sadly it happened next to us. Ordinarily we are used to the privileged American guest behaving like a privileged brat as that is the basic demeanor of those staying in Wailea, wanna be wealthy Silicon Valley savages, entitled, low class, lacking basic manners and social skills ... maui is currently experiencing them en masse right now. But the staff handled them as best they could and I give them a great deal of credit. Thankfully they LEFT. So a big thank to the staff for clearing them away from us quickly before they ruined everyone’s Christmas Eve.

if they turned the outdoor lights down a bit, I would have given this 5 stars all around.
But, the service was fabulous, the food was outstanding , the cocktails were inspiring,
so we overlooked the lighting and gave Lineage 5 stars. We cannot wait to go back -
so delicious!!!!

I wanted to love Lineage, but food just wasn't that good. Crispy noodles with gravy were good, but nothing special. Steamed fish was very good. Wagyu beef was fatty and bone marrow was put on plate to try and save. Crispy shrimp and scallop toast was again just okay. We got pork to go for son and we all tried and it just didn't taste very good.

Sheldon has won us over previously with two great restaurants, but this one needs work.

Aloha CraigM, We are sorry you to hear you were not impressed with your meal. We don't often hear this thus will take a look at the items mentioned and see what we can do to improve. Our Wagyu generally receives rave reviews, did you mention to your server the night you dined. We most certainly do all we can to ensure our guests enjoy their meal and feel they are receiving a great value. Sad we missed with you but hope one day you will give us another shot.

We rarely eat out since most places have crap for vegan offerings, especially on Maui. Lineage nailed it with the vegan dishes. So delicious! It's great to know we can go somewhere and not have to ask what they can make vegan for us - no need - the vegan dishes are noted on the menu and there are several! Every restaurant needs to do this and I hope they get their acts together soon since plant-based eating is the future!! Also, cocktails are delicious!

Lineage offers a cornucopia of Pan-Asian foods with an emphasis on flavors from Korean and Chinese kitchens. The wide-range of dishes are intended to be share plates. Standout items include the Crispy Shrimp & Scallop Toast (very rich) and Korean Fried Chicken that comes lacquered in either Sweet Kochujang glaze in Spicy Jalapeño Garlic. We also loved the Honey Garlic Shrimp and look forward to trying the Wagyu Kalbi Shortrib. Outside seating and great servers made for a lovely evening.

Our waitress was barely attentive. Her runners did most of the work.

My chicken sat under the lamp for about 15 minutes before being brought out with my wife’s steamed fish. Both were bland, but otherwise properly cooked.

Cocktails were excellent.

Dare I say that Lineage has gotten better with the change in chefs? All I know is the korean fried chicken was amazing and all that was left was bone. The wagyu was good too but there were only 6 slices of beef so value wise I don't know if I can wholeheartedly recommend. Overall though Lineage was one of our most memorable meals in Maui. We'll be coming back for more in future visits.

I always enjoy Lineage, but the sweet potato noodles were not as good as last time and I’m wondering if it’s because they did not put the gravy on at our table as they did last time we ordered them... they stuck together more this time. Still delicious. Mahalo!

Highlight was the food. The Korean fried chicken with the sweet Kochujang glaze (note: there are peanuts) and the crispy cauliflower with sweet and sour plum sauce were both simply spectacular dishes. We would order both again in a heartbeat. Engaging flavors and well-prepared ingredients (moist chicken and firm but not crunchy cauliflower) made these dishes special. Easy walk from our hotel, which made for a pleasant winding down from the meal. We highly recommend.

The food and cocktails were delicious, though we made a tactical error in ordering. We thought “Share” meant tapas, but it is really closer to “family style”. We ended up with 4 hefty entrees for 2 people 😳 It was all good—especially the Wagyu beef and Korean chicken—but gosh we’d have appreciated a warning from the server. Instead she suggested ONE MORE dish.

The Korean chicken is a half chicken fried crispy on the outside and absolute perfection inside. The beef falls apart in your mouth in a good, not overcooked, way. The pork was a tad dry, so stick w chicken, beef, or veggies/noodles.

The cocktails are creative and delicious. Highly recommend the chicken skins if you like shrubs.

Got seated at our reservation time which was nice. Someone was over to take our drink and appetizer orders quickly but they took over 20 minutes for the drinks to come out. Appetizer came out about 35 minutes after ordering. They came to take our food orders quite a while after being there and the thing we ordered was sold out. The food came out and it was good. There was some mishaps with paying. They don’t do kamaaina which was disappointing. Service was slow for operating at 50% capacity but the food was good.
