The korean fried chicken was the best chicken dish I’ve had in a long time. The noodles were also delicious, with the perfect amount of spice. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly and the atmosphere was nice. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others!

Josh was a great waiter and describe the delicious cocktails. We all had special cocktails to start which were excellent. We then had the octopus appetizer followed by Szechuan noodles, the honey shrimp and snow peas, the wagon short ribs and the amberjack fish. All excellent. Finally to top it off we try the sweet potato ice cream which was out of this world.

Wonderful food and our server at the bar was great. But when we checked in for our reservation the hostess staff were very rude

Had another reservation for another night and decided to cancel and give another restaurant a try.

Great food and service. We sat at the bar for dinner and had great conversation with the bar manager. I have Celiac and she was great about guiding me through the menu. Good was delicious and so were the cocktails. We loved it so much we made reservations for 2 days later to eat there again.

We have been to Lineage a few times since moving to Maui full time during COVID. Tonight’s visit was actually our first time eating inside the restaurant.

We had dinner at 5pm reserved and arrived early. The check in team confirmed our reservations and had us wait with other diners until the clock struck 5pm. Then they seated folks based on arrival check in. A little strange, but efficient.

Once seated, the dining team was on top of their game and introduced themselves and let us know Christian would be taking care of us. We had water and a welcome within a minute of sitting down and Christian arrived shortly thereafter. As our main server, he was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us select our meal. First off was the important drink order, my husband had a drink off the speciality cocktail menu and loved it. I had a simple ginger beer.

The stater to share was the Charred Tako & Crushed Local Potato. The octopus was a good size and expertly prepared. I could have eaten that all day long. It was so yummy.

Christian had discussed with us our choice of the marquee dishes we selected of the Korean Fried Chicken and the Black Pepper Fried Rice. He suggested we get a side of the “secret sauce” for the chicken and that the rice would be the lightest, fluffiest tasty rice we have ever experienced. Well… he was 100% correct. The two of us were able to eat an entire 1/2 chicken and the rice was filled with crab and totally delicious.

Later we heard him helping another table of guests and was quite versed in the cooking of all of the dishes. He really was impressive with his knowledge and helpfulness with the guests. It’s been awhile since we’ve had that great of service matched with fantastic food.

Anyway; if you get a chance to go and have a reservation, you will be happy you visited Lineage.

We had some issues with service one night but probably because they were very busy. They were nice about it and apologized that night. We were able to get some appetizers and drinks which were very yummy. But not able to order entries. They paid for the drinks to apologize.

But what really made us impressed was what happened the following day.

We were surprised when they reached out the following day to try to correct their wrong again and offered to pay for our entries if we give them another chance. The manager Victoria was very gracious and kind so we returned. The food and service were phenomenal and we highly recommend. We appreciate them very much for the great service. Our waitress Talia was amazing.

We ordered shrimp toast, cauliflower, garlic noodles and beef with broccoli

Garlic noodles and beef with broccoli were overly salted.

Beef was overcooked and dry.

Basically they can seem to handle the stirfry dishes. Very disappointed.

Management is nice unfortunately after 2 dishes failed i lost we interest to try anything else.

In the reservation I indicated that we are on our honeymoon. We were given a table directly next to the hostess stand and heard all the noise from people arriving to the restaurant and being seated. Also the table we were at was on a slant and our drinks kept sliding on the slanted table.

Aloha DanielleC, Thank you for commenting, we appreciate hearing from you. We remember that night. When you requested to be sat early that was the only table available, we certainly would have been happy to reseat you if we had known you were unhappy. Did you mention to our host or manager that the table was not to your satisfaction? We strive to accommodate all requests and honor special occasions. Congratulations on your marriage and hope you will come see us again one day. Mahalo.

We had a very good time at Lineage. Overall the experience was very good. It wasn’t outstanding, but we were extremely satisfied with everything by the end of our dinner. We had excellent service as well. I think having a late reservation ( 8:30pm when the restaurant closes at 9:00pm) didn’t help. Plus we were delayed by an additional 10 minutes due to traffic issues. They were kind enough to seat us and serve us a complete menu.
The garlic noodles and gojuchang fried chicken were highlights. But the sweet potato ice cream dessert was the stand out! It was truly special and probably one of the best desserts I have had for a while! Overall it was a great experience. We may have had a better experience, had we dined at an earlier time. We will definitely come back again.

We got last minute reservations likely due to a cancelation (i had an alert set). So glad we were able to dine here on our last night in Maui. It was hands down the best restaurant experience we had this time around. I believe our waiter's name was Jeff or Josh, and he was very attentive about our requests for our daughter's food allergies and any questions we had.

My fiance and i both had a Makule Kiawe for a drink (their version of an old fashioned). Very good drink! We also started with the scallop and shrimp toast. It was very intense being deep fried, but absolutely delicious!

We didnt come to dinner super hungry, but decided to try a couple entrees to share anyways on our last night. The wagyu kalbi short rib with bone marrow rice and special sauce was crazy good. The steamed fish with XO sauce (kanpachi) was amazing as well. The amount of fish 1.25 lbs was a little aggressive, but surprisingly almost finished it.

We were lucky to get in last minute. We would definitely come back again!
