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.
We had such a wonderful evening . The food and wine was amazing.
The views were breathtaking, the service was outstanding and the food was incredible. It was an all around amazing experience!
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!
Celebrating a 60th birthday!
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!
We had a great time at Merriman's. The food was phenomenal! The service was great! The view was unbeatable!
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.
Recommended to us by friends. Were very pleased with the special evening. Warm and inviting with exceptional service and food. We highly recommend it.
Glorious Maui sunsets await. The food is delicious and great service too. A little pricey, but worth it for the experience.
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.
We celebrated our 15 year anniversary here. We always have the best experience at Merriman’s. The service, food and ambience is exceptional.
Second time dining here. First time was extraordinary. This time forgettable. Food mediocre at best. Fish overcooked. Pasta sauce excessively salty. Beef fillet with pesto sauce had no taste. Service fair. Very disappointed. We traveled far from the Four Seasons in Wailea to get there. Greatly anticipated another extraordinary meal and were devastated to have such a poor meal. An inconsistent great restaurant is not a great restaurant. I would never trust this place again and will surely skip it next time I am in
Maui. Mr Merriman should be embarrassed to lend his name to this place. Is probably overextended and he cannot provide special quality to all of his restaurants because he cannot be everywhere to cook. I generally do not like to dine at restaurant chains so to speak where there are many branches and the chef Is not always present. I thought this particular restaurant was an exception. Sadly, I was very wrong and to my great regret.
We ate at Merriman's for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. The restaurant was very nice and the views were outstanding. The service was excellent as well as the food. It is on the pricier side so be prepared to pay. Overall a very nice Anniversary dinner that we won't forget.
Try anything on the menu and you won't be disappointed. Beautiful location, awesome service and amazing food
Our honeymoon dinner couldn’t have been more special! Thank you Merrimans!
It was my birthday and looking forward to this. Ate upstairs, view ok, cocktails good, pupu platter very good, lamb shank very tender, Opakapaka the worst I've ever eaten anywhere. I wanted to go slap the chef. Over cooked, dry, hard to cut , same with the 2 accompanying prawns. Waitress brought me another half order, not much better if any. We've been here a month and went twice to Seahouse ($38) and Seascape ($29) for the Opakapaka along with Dukes and Kimos ($36). This was $49 and about half the size including 2 overlooked prawns. The best was Seahouse and Seascape which was crab stuffed at $29, both melted in your mouth. Kudos to manager who comped the fish and gave us a $50 voucher . I certainly hope this was a one time mistake. Every time we've eaten there no problems.
Everything was awesome! The ambiance was incredible. Make sure you come early for the sunset :)
Go for the view! The food wasn't as good as last time but still good, just not outstanding for the prices.
This evening was a gift from our kids for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was absolutely perfect! Our waiter was exceptional and the food superb! The music was lovely and watching three wedding receptions was fun! Everyone there seemed to be having a wonderful time and this lent a festive tone to the ambience of your fine establishment. This was an evening to remember and a highlight of our first trip to Maui. We hope to return soon.
Thanks again for a delightful experience!

Great for celebrating a special occasion. Staff was pleasant and very accommodating. Had drinks and appetizers on the lanai as we watched a beautiful sunset. The dinner selections were delicious and the musical duo added something unique and special to the already amazing atmosphere.
The food and location make Merriman's a must every time we come to Maui.
My wife and I came to Merrimans on our honeymoon. One of the better restaurant experiences we've had. Complementary valet parking. Beautiful deck overlooking the ocean, rocks, and Lanai to enjoy drinks while we waited for dinner. Impecable service, JJ was our waiter, he was top notch. Meagan had the filet, I had scallops and Mahi Mahi, we shared the cavatelli appetizer. They were all lovely. Dinner was expensive, $205 before tip. Fantastic overall experience. Will come back next time in Maui.
Such a great beautiful and delicious spot! The service was wonderful the view is one of a kind. Always get the Mai Tai it is the best one in town the Lilikoi fluff takes it to another level! The chow fun is soooo delicious a must have as well! We have gone there for our date nights 2 years in a row!
Amazing dinner--had the ahi. Fantastic service--our waiter Levi was fantastic. Don't visit Maui without going to Merrimans! And I received a birthday dessert! It was delish!
Excellent place to eat. Setting is gorgeous and sunsets are a must! The food is delicious and the staff was extremely good!
We had an exceptional dinner at Merriman's, from the quality of the service to the quality of the local, fresh ingredients. Opakapaka, fresh pineapple with sea salt, perfectly grilled shrimp, al dente vegetables...every bite was delicious.
We had dined at another high end restaurant the night before and almost skipped this one, even though it was for a special occasion — we felt we'd peaked. So glad we didn't cancel - Merriman's represents an entirely different and higher level of comfort, service, warmth, and exceptional food. It will always be #1 on our list of "special occasion" restaurants, and may even sneak into "it's Friday and we want a superior experience" list.
This is a great place well known for its location; while facing westward for sunset. They have a great valet service as they take your car with care (knowing it is a rental). Multiple hostesses to attend to you when you arrive.
We were seated immediately when we arrived (at 5:15p: reservation for 5:30p) with the understanding most of us are there till after sunset.
Waitress service was fantastic as she gave great recommendations for drinks.
Appetizers arrived within 20 minutes, entrees took a while as they served it just before sunset. The staffs offered to take your pictures as they understand why we are all there. They also gave us a free dessert as it was our anniversary.
Very happy with service as we are from NYC with much anticipation from Maui.
A better value than Mamas fish house.
We had dinner for our anniversary. It's a beautiful location, the food and service were great. Couldn't ask for more. We will go back.
