Excellent restaurant. We went twice in one day! Happy Hour (those Mai Tai’s!!), garlic fries (so good). The noodle soup is so amazing. Pizza great (although the crust underneath was a bit soft). Their coconut cream pie is beautiful. I wasn’t as keen on pot stickers . Sweet potato tortellini (pasta appetizer) was yummy, but too much butter. Welcoming staff were very friendly. Servers good. Highlights: fish sandwich, noodles, and pie 🥧

It is a nice restaurant but the pricing for the food quality and quantity is a bit expensive especially for a family. You can expect this in Wailea but it still is a bit too pricey.

This place was one of the best dinners on the island. Fresh food, the best mai tai’s anywhere. Our server Ryan was great, friendly, knowledgeable, and just an all around great guy. We took his lead - everything was superb.

Enjoyed our meal, but found the restaurant to be a little dirty. Time to replace or recover the grubby bar stools.

Loved the food and live music! We didn’t order food until after 9:00 but that was even better because they offered drink specials, half off appetizers and $10 pizzas! The cocktails are to die for!

Terrific location with attentive staff and a great menu. Fresh fish a speciality. You have to try their special strawberry dessert made fresh every day. Plus the bar staff know their wines. Wonderful evening!

We dined as a couple for a Friday evening dinner. The restaurant was hopping. The potstickers were a great start with some hot mustard. The mai tais were deliciously effective, but the bulgogi pork tacos were the real winner of the night

We were 10 min early for a 7:30 pm reservation and were told they’re running 20 min late. Did not got seated until 8:15 pm! What’s the point of reservations if they are not honored? This was our favorite restaurant on our last trip to Maui so I booked it twice for this trip. Now looking for another option for our second dinner since the time management was so poor.
The food was just ok this time, Mahi mahi was dry.
