Excellent food, awesome interior of restaurant, great service!
Good food, good service, great location. Very pricey but hey your in Kauai everything is expensive. My only complaint is the beer selection. They could do a better job at that.
Just a wonderful experience! Would definitely recommend!!
Wonderful food and excellent service. Justin was one of the best servers we have had. He suggested the fish of the day and it was very delicious!
Great food. Loved the specials that were offered. Nice atmosphere
Merrimans never disappoints. The food is always fantastic and the service keeps Merrimans in a class above other restaurants in Kauai. Our waiter - Steve - was on point with every recommendation.
Both the General Manager and our server spent time at our table and were charming, knowledgeable and accommodating.
The fam and I loved the oysters for appetizers. The food was great.
We were celebrating my husbands return to health from open heart surgery. The restaurant gave him a free dessert which was a very nice touch. The waiter recommended the moi fish and it was absolutely delicious. Cooked perfectly. A very nice celebration at a very nice restaurant. Best meal we had in Kauai!
Excellent fresh seafood served on a deck overlooking fields, ocean and the sunset. I live on Kauai and this is one of my favorite places to take guests.
Service was great! Jessica is amazing! Sun became a little hot and hard on the eyes as the sun was getting lower. Food was very good and dishes were well created! Price point is high for portion size but that’s what you get for fine dining. Drinks were very unique and delicious. Great wine selection.
Great food and service. Our waiter Michael was attentive and funny.
Our waiter was terrific and VERY helpful with selecting our meals!!
Wonderful experience from beginning to end. I have nothing negative to say The food was exquisite and the service impeccable. Would’ve gone there every night!!
An all around outstanding meal!! Our server Jessica knew exactly what she was recommending. The Mai Tai was out of this world. The glass of Oregon Pinot was excellent. The starters, entrees and dessert were all spot on. An enjoyable experience and I would go back every day if I could.
My wife has a shell fish allergy. Our server Aubrey did not tell us there were prawns on the plate. Mistakes happen. The issue, our server insisted she told us. Frankly having to battle with the server ruined our experience. Merriman management was very attentive, a new delicious dinner was made, and comped.
We sent my husband's parents to Merriman's to celebrate their anniversary. From start to finish, the process of setting up our credit card with the restaurant and making the reservation went smoothly. His parents were very impressed with the service, food, and entire experience. We love Merriman's and will definitely return when back on island!!
Food was average, flavor was not exceptional. Sunset was in our face. Service we good
top quality food amazing service the Som on staff was incredibly friendly and led us to a great bottle of wine. didn’t feel i was sold on something more expensive actually it was the opposite. will return i want to hit the one in Maui as well it had an incredible view
Loved this place! Rick the manager sat us in the best table in the restaurant, a quiet back corner table where we could see the sunset perfectly. The lobster was outstanding and the fish of the day was super fresh. I will definitely be going back and referring others to go!
It was one great satisfying meal! Definitely recommendable.
Excellent kampachi and steak.
Food was delicious - both the seafood and the taro vegetarian enchilada. The service was spectacular! Even the rosemary bread and butter with red Sea salt was delicious! The lilikoi mousse dessert, again delicious! Wanted to go back here for the food and service but didn't have time. The ambiance was nice, good views in the distance and the restaurant was on the second floor with far reaching views, set up very cute and quaint.
Great dinner! The food was well prepared and presented. They also accommodated our diet with making adjustments and substitutions. One of our favorite places on Kauai
Merriman’s was the absolute best dinner we had in Kauai. The service was excellent and they really spoiled us knowing it was our honeymoon. The food was so fresh and full of flavor. it may be my new favorite restaurant of all time!
When we arrived it was quite hot with direct sun on our faces. We were not comfortable or relaxed. Another table asked for the shades to be lowered but there was a bit of a battle over if they should be up or down. The oysters were ok and the lobster was good. The drinks were excellent. overall an ok experience compared to other dining locations on kauai
Tables too close together so conversation was impossible
Wonderful dinner and great live music.
The food here is always amazing, whether you eat upstairs or downstairs!
Merriman’s was a great dining experience!
Service was very long. It took 1 1/2 hours to get our food. Some dishes were good but others were subpar like the jalapeño mash potatoes. Not really worth it for the price
Excellent all around. We celebrated our 20th Anniversary and had a fabulous experience. The food was fantastic, as were the handmade cocktails. Sunset was gorgeous and our server, Jared, even took time to get a few photos of us during the sunset. Live music was a perfect compliment as well, not too loud with a very talented acoustic guitar player/singer.
Great experience all around!
One of my favorite dining experiences ever. it is expensive, but the quality is top notch, the staff is amazing and the ambience is perfect!!! Went back two straight nights while in town.
Delicious seafood & wonderful scenery. Service was great as well. We’ve been to several Merriman’s before & this lived up to expectations.
We loved the wonderful service, the terrific food, and a great table looking out on to the beautiful Kauai sunset. However, there was a band, which I am told is there everynight, downstairs but outside and was so loud nd disturbing, it was hard to talk with each other. It was a shame to see such a great, romantic restaurant disturbed by the loud sound of the band.
It can get pretty warm, so take that into consideration.
