DO YOU TAKE RESERVATIONS?

Reservations are available via OpenTable

If it shows no availability or you ever have difficultly making a reservation on line please feel free to call the restaurant. We are happy to assist. (808) 879-8800. Mahalo.

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.

The food at Lineage comes from a place in the past – a place where everyone gathered around and shared together the food that was laid out in front of them – food that is from the heart and filled with memories. Dishes will pay homage to those who inspire Sheldon, and will celebrate his familial roots (or Lineage), as well as the vast bounty of the islands.

We ate the Hoppin Juan’s + cauliflower Katsu + the pork chop special + the Kimchee dip from the dim sum cart.
The Hoppin Juan’s and the Cauliflower Katsu stole the show for us. The Hoppin Juan’s is a bowl of oxtail, black eyed peas, green, rice, and we ordered with the bone marrow(which we highly recommend), it is a really great dish.
Cocktails were very tasty and creative.
Would definitely return.
Service was attentive and friendly.

Great service. Food was amazing! So happy to see Filipino cuisine elevated in a way that’s accessible to every type of diner. Great job to the folks at Lineage.

Fantastic food and great service! They accommodated our group of 12 with no problems! The food and drinks were fantastic and unique. We had a few foodies in our group and they were impressed with the flavors and creativity. We let our server decide which dishes to try and he did an outstanding job with the variety and amount. Would highly recommend!

Exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed watching Chef Sheldon on both seasons of Top Chef. When we were planning a trip to Maui from Oʻahu, we knew we needed to make Lineage a priority on our itinerary. On Top Chef we loved how Chef Sheldon shared his moʻolelo through his food and his aloha for family and sense of place is definitely evident in the food we enjoyed that evening. Jordan and the rest of the waitstaff were very attentive to our needs. We also scored some kamaʻāina service and perks. We appreciate places that take care of their locals too! We hope to be able to visit again and try even more of the menu!

Made a birthday reservation last Friday. Seated us outside next to the bathrooms (arguably this is the worst table in the house) even though the restaurant was not terribly busy. Apps we started with were just ok. Drinks server accidentally spilled cocktails over some newly purchased LV stuff (luckily, nothing damaged just all the packaging sticky). This was the final straw for me. I could take any one of these things alone but together they made for a regrettable birthday experience. They did offer to comp the entire meal but I was over it by then (and TBH a free meal next to the bathroom doesn't sound like a great time). Should have went to the tried and true Monkeypod instead.

I would only recommend going to sit at the bar or after 8pm. They could not handle the number of parties overlapping between around 7 and 7:30

By far the best meal that we had on Maui. Christian was an incredible waiter, who gave very personal service and great tips for the road to Hana.

While it claims to be a Filipino place, they only have one authentic Filipino dish, which is the Crispy Pata. The rest of the dishes taste like it was made by someone from the mainland.

Adobo and Chow Fun were disasters. Adobo is supposed to be salty and sour. It was drowned in BBQ sauce. The chow fun was sweet and wet like a stew.

The cart items were delicious but overpriced by 100%. I have never paid for banchan in my life. Now I have.

This restaurant is an Asian fusion rather than a Filipino restaurant. It has Filipino, Korean, and Chinese influence. I couldn’t find a traditional Filipino restaurant on Maui. This is the only place that came up on my search.

Our best meal yet! Hoppin Juan is off the chart good! I am a foodie and southern food raised, this is amazing! In fact, we went back for a second night during our vacation last night to both order it again! I have never revisited a restaurant on a vacation until now! Drinks and service are awesome too!

Food was outstanding and Mick was a great bartender. Only drawback was that the front of the house seemed disorganized and I’m not sure the reservation and seating process is efficient. We had reservations but ended up eating at the bar. That was fine for us but the hostess said we could have a drink and she would come back when she had a table. She never did. Not a big deal for us but kept me from giving 5 stars.

I was excited to go to Lineage, knowing it was a "Shelton" restaurant, from Top-Shelf. Unfortunately I found the restaurant "average". Everything was cooked well but boring. For the price, it was only "okay"

An awesome combination of cuisines with a very inventive twist on flavors and presentation. The first time the servers will educate the customer as to what to expect. Chef Sheldon and his crew provide an incredible experience. Oh and the food is awesome!

I mean, this is a must if you're in Maui. Chef Sheldon Simeon (of Top Chef fame) has really created a great modern homage to his roots. The menu is wonderfully inventive but still accessible and super tasty. His Hoppin' Juan grew on us as the meal progress, smoked meats were YUM off the bat and anywhere a vegetable showed up, it was picked-from-the-garden fresh. Highly recommending.
