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.

Jordan provided excellent and attentive service. We enjoyed the unique drink options and our food was delicious. We recommend the honey garlic shrimp and Szechuan noodles. Both were scrumptious! The wagyu short ribs were very good though very expensive. The coconut pannacota with coffee whip was dominated by the very strong coffee whip. Overall, Lineage is not to be missed!

Absolutely loved the experience of dining at Lineage. It’s probably my new favorite restaurant on the island. Every food item came as an experience with something to do or a unique unheard of flavor. So delicious and the service was wonderful. Pricing for this experience dining was totally reasonable. Go to Lineage and order one of everything!

Came here with another couple to celebrate a joined birthday (mine, and my friends!). We had an 8:30 PM reservation and the minute we sat down the server said that we had to be out by 10:00 and that we needed to hurry. It was a D+ experience at best. We also just got engaged two hours before! We would have been totally fine just grabbing a couple of drinks and having a quick dinner, but the feeling was pretty obvious that the server was just annoyed that we were there.

Simple suggestion - maybe the hostess could have made us aware that they had a curfew and that the kitchen was closing right at 9:00 PM? OR the server could have just been polite and friendly? Were were all so disappointed.

We are sorry to hear this. You are correct, the Host is meant to inform all guests upon arrival of Maui County guidelines stating that all dinners must be finished by 10 PM. We agree that even if these are the rules it is of utmost importance how this message is delivered and we are very saddened to know we failed. I will be reviewing with our Host team and our Servers tonight on how to politely handle this message with grace and kindness. Our deepest apologies. We hope you will come again.

Had an amazing meal there, the food is fantastic and the value is great. The portions are not tiny like a lot of places in the same dining category, but the food quality is better than many other upscale restaurants. Our waitress was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and very helpful. Was great about suggesting the best options rather than just the favorite and we were really happy with all of the options that she recommended. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We loved everything that we ordered and it was all gluten-free!! The Honey Shrimp was amazing! We also enjoyed the sweet potato noodle and mushroom gravy and the preparation was so much fun!

Alexandra was such a helpful server and quite attentive, taking great care of us. She recommended both the tapioca desert and the sweet potato ice cream which was out of this world! My best meal on Maui!!

Fun experience. We ordered the Korean fried chicken in the sweet gochujang glaze, along with the buri bop special, and the smashed cucumber salad. The chicken and salad were both delightful, we wanted a touch more spice on the chicken though. The chicken was such a down-to-earth experience. We cut it up ourselves and shared it. It felt like a meal you’d share with the family. The buri bop was underwhelming, and needed more depth. It was just kind of wet and bland all together. For dessert we got the sweet potato ice cream, which was to sweet. We yearned for more of the sweet potato’s flavor but we could not find it in the sugary ice cream. Unique atmosphere inside of the restaurant, almost providing an in-home experience.

Table of four and waiter forgot half of the table’s order. Waiter admitted he made a mistake and afterwards was friendly but was over friendly like he was trying to make up for his mistake and it was just too much and got unbearable. Reserved table in advance but stuck us next to the employee door but I have to admit not as bad as the poor family that was seated next to the bathroom. I would think at low capacity due to covid there would be better seating arrangements. Got the fried chicken, there was two choices, waiter assumed the choice I wanted or maybe there was misunderstanding because we were wearing masks and couldn’t hear each other? I don’t know, in any case, when my food arrived it was the wrong fried chicken. The crab toast was very oily, schezuan noodles was okay but not numbing as the waiter described it. When we first arrived, waiter said prepare for ur expectations to be blown away. It was not. I hate it when I spend a lot of money on a terrible dining experience.

We arrived at Lineage after multiple recommendations from waiters and chefs in other restaurants. We started with Ahi Poke & One Ton Salad with the turmeric ginger sauce. The sauce was excellent with the fresh greens and ahi. For our main meal we shared the Korean Fried Chicken with Sweet Kochujang glaze and Fried Vegetable Rice. The half chicken was the size of a whole chicken you would find in grocery stores and was cooked perfectly. We finished with Coconut panna cotta with Coffee ice cream, an excellent mix of flavors.
The service was excellent as well. Our server was attentive and everything showed up on time, giving us just enough time in between courses. We ended up spending almost 2.5 hours for our dinner.

This was our favorite restaurant on Maui! Wow- amazing food and service. We were walked from beginning to finish by our waitress who was also phenomenal. We had their signature Korean fried chicken (by far the best we have ever had). I'm not sure how they did it, but it was the crispiest chicken even when drenched in their tasty sauce. I can't wait to come back and visit. Truly an amazing experience.

The food and beverage at Lineage is consistantly outstanding along with the service.
The outdoor seating ambiance could be improved with some fun rattan lighting overhead but the food and service makes up for having dinner in a shopping center. We are fans.
