Lineage is open 7 days a week from 5 PM - 9 PM offering our new menu by Chef Mijin Toride for Dine-In and Take-Out. Happy Hour at the Bar from 5 PM - 6 PM.

DO YOU TAKE RESERVATIONS? Reservations are available via OpenTable. If you have difficultly making a reservation 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 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!

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

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.

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!
