Booked a reservation last minute. For the first time ever I tried wagyu beef and it was AMAZING! The food was beyond delicious our server Tiana was by far the best server I’ve ever had at a restaurant. She was so so sweet and was on point with ensuring we were comfortable and taken cared of.

We went with another couple to dinner (their first time at Lineage) and it was great. We love the new menu (I am hoping it will expand as time goes on) and the service is friendly and attentive. Our guests really enjoyed the food and cocktails and said it could become one of their favorites. We enjoyed the Shrimp Toast, Kimchee Dip and Tako appetizers. For dinner our favorites are the Honey Garlic Shrimp, steamed fish and the short ribs. All were yummy. This is a great place for a nice out with friends, cocktails and appetizers or a special evening out. We enjoy their outdoor seating best.

Our Anniversary dinner was spot on for presentation and taste. The service was also great, our waiter could have been more attentive on refilling our drinks but he was great on returning to our table often to see how we were enjoying our meal. We are born and raised native of this amazing ʻāina ( Land ) we call home, our Island "Maui Nō Ka ʻOi" which means Maui is the Best, and Lineage has defintely become our favorite place to dine, especially during this crazy pandemic.

If youʻre Kamaʻāina or just visiting Maui, this is a great place to come for a fabulous meal with great drinks.

Food was dry, overcooked and over sliced
We enjoyed the shrimp toast appetizer very much but the Korean half chicken for $37 was a major disappointment. And the dessert was awful and I cant even tell you what it was. Our tab was $185 and it has been the worst meal we’ve experienced in the last five months here on Maui. Big disappointment!

Food was attractive and delicious! Portions were generous .
Ambiance and atmosphere were nonexistent...in part perhaps because of Covid. We sat outdoors . Tables had no decoration and the outdoor seating faces storefronts just a few feet away with no foliage to obscure the view. There were only a very few customers since there are no tourists on Maui so it was VERY quiet ...and the service was excellent. We had 2 drinks, a glass of wine, an appetizer and 3 dishes to share.
The check Including tip was $185. Pretty steep for 2 people, though we took home at least half of our delicious Korean fried chicken.

Really has been one of the great restaurants on Maui. They just reopened and we thought we would give it a shot for the wife's birthday. Our experience was mixed. First, great job by the staff upfront with checking in. We had a table inside. A little dark with the lighting. A limited new menu. My wife had really anticipated the steamed fish but there was none for that evening! Disappointed from the start. Also ordered the Wagyu strip at $53. The presentation was interesting but the value for that was extremely overpriced. You get about six slices of steak and a lot of side dishes. The meat was a little on the tougher side and indistinguishable as a premier cut. The kimchee was fantastic and that was the highlight of that dish. We ended up with fried rice instead of fish and that was excellent. It's fried rice and I'll leave it at that. The service was outstanding and the manager came by a couple of times. Miss a few items from the previous menu. Honestly, unimpressed with the menu. I get that under the current circumstances it's challenging and I applaud the team for giving a great effort regardless.

We strive to create the best experience and it appears we fell short on this special day. Very sorry to have been out of fish the day you visited. Understood when looking forward to a special dish it is disappointing when not available. We will review the Wagyu as well, thanks for feedback. We hope you visit again. Melanie

Lineage now has a new menu with a new executive chef. Love the new menu and the food was awesome. I think we will be eating there more than we did before because there are more gluten free choices on the menu. They still have a great bar with some different cocktails. And service was great! It still feels a little close between tables even though they are spacing a little farther apart and not trying to seat at each table. Their restaurant is small so I think they are doing the best they can. We were comfortable at our outside table. We look forward to coming back and trying other menu items.

We went to Lineage for our anniversary. The safety protocols made us feel safe. The craft cocktails were great, best we tried were the Mai'a Tai and Makule Kiawe. We shared everything family-style as recommended by the chef, which we really enjoyed. Ahi Poke & One-Ton Salad was super fresh with perfectly prepared high quality fresh ahi. For entrees, we had the honey garlic shrimp & snow and an oxtail dumpling soup. Both were great. The oxtail dumpling soup in particular was absolutely amazing. The silkiest dumplings I've ever had filled with the deeply developed flavors of braised oxtail in a very yummy broth. Finished it all off with the lilikoi chocolate trifle, also yummy.

We had high hopes for Lineage given that we love Tin Roof as a lunch spot. We were sorely disappointed. The menu was over priced and the servers push beer, wine and cocktails way too much. The Smoke Meat app was excellent. However I got the Huli Huli Chicken which was over cooked to where the chicken breast was dry. My husband got the pork dish which was good; however the guys seated next to us also got the pork dish and theirs looked a bit different. So there is a consistency issue with the dishes. The seating was interesting. We were seated where the sun was blasting one person in the eyes. They needed to wait 20 minutes before seating anyone there. We were moved to a spot where two tables were very close together. They sat two people in the spot next to us...one of the guys talked as loud as he could, so we couldn’t hear each other. :/
