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 us, and will celebrate our familial roots (or Lineage), as well as the vast bounty of the islands.

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!
Amazing food and great customer service. We really enjoyed our family dinner. We will definitely dine here again.
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.
This place stands out among both the mediocre and good hotel restaurants nearby. Lineage is creative, fresh, and a notch above the rest. It is a bit like Star Noodle but with a smaller and more carefully crafted menu.
Trust me - give Lineage a try. Excellence! Oh, and very covid-conscious seating and service.
Good food and service
Great food & service. And the drinks are amazing.
Amazingly tasty food... we had the fried chicken and the prawn & scallop toast - super flavourful. Cool ambience and nice selection of wine & cocktails - already planning to go back to try the rest of the menu!
Everything was outstanding. I had the Wagu Striploin it came with bone marrow. Both were delicious. We will go again.
Excellent dinner. The menu was interesting and varied, so guests that avoid meat had plenty of choices of seafood and veggie dishes. Service was excellent, the dishes came out promptly and were spaced well so that not everything came out together as we were sharing.
It was amazing scallop toast and the Korean chicken was two of the best dishes I’ve ever had. Best meal in Maui!
Aloha!!! Thank you so much for your kind words. We work hard daily to bring you the best experience possible and truly appreciate hearing from you. Please come again soon! Mahalo, Melanie
It was a wonderful night with great cocktail and amazing food!
Absolutely amazing food and service. The Korean fried chicken is a MUST
Aloha Jerry, Thank you so much for taking time to post a review. Hearing from you makes all the hard work worth it! Please come see us again soon. Mahalo, Melanie
Fantastic! Service is great and it’s always delish.
Mahalo Cword! We truly appreciate hearing from you, it makes all our hard work worth it! Please come see us again soon. Melanie
Lineage is one of our top restaurants not just in Maui but in the whole world. We were staying on the other side of the island and what a great discovery! We love food of all types and we also eat Korean food regularly. Whether you are or aren’t familiar with Korean food Lineage is incredible! I’d recommend it to anyone and if you’re not staying nearby, make the drive!
Great inventive food, service solid. Did not get optimal table (beside bathroom). Worth going back
The Korean chicken was the ‘best’ chicken I have ever had! The poke salad was the ‘worst’, small amount of mushy tuna in a bed of tons of greens.
Wow. We spent 8 days on Maui and this was the best food and singing we had there. We celebrated our honeymoon With great whiskey (10 year van winkle) , drinks, and amazing food. We actually ended up giving up our table reservation and staying at the bar because the service was stellar! The bartender was great(so sorry, forgot your name.. started with a V?) ! We were even surprised with a sweet treat at the end ! Thank you!!!
Awesome, family style eating - and best craft cocktails in Wailea.
This spot was a gem for my boyfriend and I! It’s located in a really nice shopping center with beautiful shops. The food was outstanding (so fresh and local), we loved the garlic shrimp. The service was great too. There were cool touches like the pink brass utensils and the cocktail glasses were so unique and tasty.
Aloha! Thank you for taking time to post a review! We appreciate your kind words and input. Please come see us again soon. Mahalo, Melanie
Food not aligned with expectations set by the brand. If they’re going to pivot the menu this hard with a new chef, a rebranding/renaming should accompany the change. Food is now along the lines with a contemporary Chinese restaurant with some oddly executed Korean influence. Balance was off. Not bad, but not good nor great, either. We really wanted to like it, but we were very disappointed. We didn’t taste the Hawaiian roots/influence that the name and mission statement suggest.
The cocktails were very good and well balanced. Service was excellent.
Mahalo Richard, We will take your input and do our best to improve. We strive to create a fantastic experience for each and every guest and are sorry if we missed the mark. Please do come again if you have an opportunity, we'd love a chance to make a better impression on your palate. Thank you for your kind words in regard to our service and the cocktails. We will be sure to acknowledge your server. Mahalo, Melanie
Overall excellent experience. One disappointment was that our drinks took a while to come out. We received our appetizer and our first entree before our drinks. Foos was delicious and our server was great! Would go again.
Delicious every time. Every week! Love this new chef!
Mahalo Cword! We truly appreciate hearing from you and hope we will see you again soon. Mahalo, Melanie
The service was friendly and efficient. Every person was careful and conscientious.
Our last visit was so delicious we returned 2 days later. Each dish has been excellent!
Mahalo lv2dine! We truly appreciate your kind words and that you took the time to post a review. We hope to see you again soon. Melanie
Best customer service. I would recommend anyone to go there. Our waiter Josh was really good.
Thanks for taking time to post! We will be sure and acknowledge his great service. Mahalo, Melanie
The food was excellent and the service friendly. Only complaint was that it cost $10 for an iced tea — yes it was a unique blend, but I would have liked the option of ordering plain iced tea.
Aloha and thank you for taking time to post a review. We'll be sure and take a look at your request. We will do our best to accommodate. Mahalo, Melanie
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.
Mahalo! We are so grateful that you took the time to post a review. We will be sure and acknowledge Tiana for a job well done. Please come see us again soon. Melanie
As always the food is outstanding! Thank you Chef Sheldon for another amazing meal!
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.
Mahalo Out2dinner! We truly appreciate your kind words and detailed response. We will continue to expand the menu and offer amazing specials. Please come see us again soon. Melanie
First nice sit down dinner in a while! Service was great. Food was good, drinks well made. We will be back.
Mahalo Charles S. We truly appreciate your kind words and that you took the time to post a review. We do hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Melanie
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.
casual, relaxed - friendly staff and waiter (Christian) was excellent. Checked in, made sure everything was good. cocktails were tasty and wonderful. Food was fantastic - flavorful, cooked well, nice presentation, patio seating was nice to be outdoors. Been here a few times and Lineage has discounted.
Mahalo for taking time to post such a kind and thoughtful post. We will be sure and acknowledge Christian, we are proud to have him on our staff. Please do visit again soon! Melanie
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!
Aloha RonaldC, We appreciate you're review, it appears you enjoyed the service! We're sorry your were disappointed with the meal. We don't hear that often. Usually Korean Fried Chicken receives rave reviews. We'll take look. We work hard every day to bring you the best experience. It's a difficult business during the best of times. Rest assured we will do our best to improve. We are proud of our menu, service and guest experience and hope you'll come again. Kind Regards, Melanie
Service was phenomenal. Food fantastic. Highly recommend.

Always amazing food there and they've added even more space between tables since the last time we went a few weeks ago. The mung bean cake special was delicious as was the Keawe cocktail.
Aloha HIBP, Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review and share your thoughts. We truly appreciate hearing from you and hope you will come visit again soon! Mahalo, Melanie
