Chef/Owner Peter Merriman has transplanted his version of Hawaii Regional Cuisine to this beautiful ocean-side location in the Kapalua resort. He uses only the freshest products of which 90% or more are locally produced or caught, using only sustainable methods. Peter has always been a front runner in the "Farm to Table" concept. All food is prepared in a way that highlights the natural flavors of the food. We have a very friendly staff to ensure that you have an incredible dining experience. Their food knowledge is among the best in the industry. All this is in the most beautiful location within the resort, right on the water where the most incredible sunsets are watched nightly at our oceanfront winebar. As well enjoy our diverse wine list which recently received the "two-glass" award by Wine Spectator Magazine.

We enjoyed another lovely dinner at Merriman’s. This is a wonderful restaurant with great service, ambience, wine selection and food. It is our favorite dining venue on Maui!,

The view was amazing! Our server, Davie was great.
We ordered the pupu appy & ribeye steak, as well a whole lobster tail. The steak was lacking in flavour & was over cooked, as well gristle throughout. Not the typical marble, but gristle that was in every bite & hard to chew through.
When I mentioned this to a staff member, he was receptive to hear our feedback & ended up taking the ribeye off the bill. Not our intention, it was rather to let him know, as I would want to know, if it were my restaurant.

Merrimans is a beautiful restaurant with DELICIOUS food. Wait staff is attentive, friendly and informative. Service was great.

Hostesses were not very friendly or welcoming. That was the only downfall to our experience.

We had an amazing dinner here while on our honeymoon. The restaurant is set up so all dinners have a view of ocean while the sun sets. The food was also outstanding and pretty much all locally sourced ingredients. We will plan to come back every time we are on Maui!

We were disappointed in our meal ( we had snapper ). Four of us ordered the same entree. We all agreed that it was too spicy and it ruined the dish. Our waiter failed to tell us that the dish was spicy. A lesson learned; no matter where you go, ask if the entree is spicy! The view however was spectacular!

Food was wonderful and the service was great! They had delicious deserts as well! I do not recommend this place for families with kids. I DO recommend making a reservation as I arrived early to mine and witnessed the hostess having to turn away some small groups due to a full house!

In short - outstanding would be the word I would use to describe the food and experience. Right from the moment we arrived with the valet parking, to the delicious shrimp appeztier, amazing Caesar salad, awesome main dishes and yummy desert - it was a great experience! Would highly recommend, it was worth every penny we spent!

Beautiful setting for sunsets and delicious food. Romantic and wonderful mixed drinks. JJ, the waiter, was great and let us enjoy the view while pacing the meal. Excellent experience.

Glorious Maui sunsets await. The food is delicious and great service too. A little pricey, but worth it for the experience.

Recommended to us by friends. Were very pleased with the special evening. Warm and inviting with exceptional service and food. We highly recommend it.

Combine a vibrant bar scene with live music and there just isn't a quiet table in the entire room. Waiters need to pay more attention to cocktail requests. Omitting or forgetting special requests is a no no.

We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff made it very memorable. We brought our own non-alcoholic wine, which they were happy to serve us at no charge. Our steaks and lobsters were prepared exquisitely and we enjoyed every bite.

Please have better hostesses. We had a dinner reservation for 6 yesterday and was seated by a hostess who was busy looking elsewhere, adjusting her hair like she was at a fashion show. She did the same to many tables and that is not the first impression you want to give. Everything else was top notch. Just let the teens go and let them do something else other than being a hostess at a 5 star restaurant.

This was our first visit and we had a memorable experience. The wines, food and service were exceptional. The wine sommelier and our waiter did a fantastic job. As we visit Maui at least once per year, we will surely be back.

The atmospheric at Merriman's is exquisite. We we're able to watch the sunset during our dinner. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The food was very good. I ordered the Mahi-mahi, it was delicious. My wife was not impressed with the lamb chops. She felt they were fatty. We were celebrating our honeymoon, and they were nice enough to provide a complimentary slice of flower less chocolate cake. Overall it was a good experience. We would recommend it if you are visiting Maui.
