    We arrived there a bit earlier then our scheduled time for a special occasion and the only time our waitress came was to take our order. When our order came we had to ask the busser for everything from more water to condiments for a burger. There was also a lot of flies. Busser from Romania provided better service then the server we were assigned. Food wasn’t great was fair, loco moco was over cooked, ahi poke price was too high for the portion, salads were less then fair quality. Ambiance of sunset was the nicest part of the experience

    Restaurant is beside the pool and most all of the people had swimsuits and t-shirts but the dress code says resort wear. Food was good but they needed more servers because it took forever to get the food.

    We were the only non-guests here at this poolside restaurant at the Westin. What a treat! We would never pay $850 a night for a hotel room, but dang, the views from this hotel are definitely worth it. We got a ringside seat to a spectacular sunset at a swanky resort for a $100, dinner and drinks included. :)

    First ( and last ) time here. We were looking for a casual spot for supper with sunset view. Cocktails were ok nothing special, edamame was fine. Fish special of the day was overcooked and nothing special. Ahi tacos were decent but again the fish was overcooked. Biggest surprise was the fish special was $57! We should have asked prior to ordering so that is on us , but if you are gonna charge $57 for a plate of food at least prepare it well.

    This is a family pool-side dining place at the Westin. It’s not some fancy sit down restaurant like Maridia which is right above this place. The views are great, kids are running around everywhere, it’s a little chaotic with all of that but the live music was wonderful and the food was pretty good. Fish tacos were yummy and the Poke appetizer was delicious and the steak was ok. The prices were half of those at Maridia and the sunset over the ocean was spectacular.

    If you’re looking for a delicious meal overlooking the ocean, this is not the place!! The food could not have been worse. We were fine with the lengthy wait time after being seated because they seemed extremely short staffed, however the food tasted horrible and was cold with hot spots like it had been microwaved. Definitely a waste of time and money.

    The waitress was sweet. The drinks were awesome. My carrots were not cooked at all... like eating raw carrots. The nachos were great and my chicken and mashed potatoes were great too. I dislike cats and there was a cat wondering around between tables the entire meal.

    Awful. Just awful. Uncooked steak, unapologetic service, and I had to actually argue to get that meal refunded. Flies everywhere and just a really bad experience in an extremely upscale and overpriced resort.

    Lovely location, decent menu options, but the place is understaffed. It took way too long to get our food but the waitress seemed to be doing it all by herself so you feel bad for complaining, and it was a busy Saturday night. The staff were all very nice and super accommodating, very much appreciate them, but service was horribly slow. The food and drinks were good but prices did not match what we received to be honest. The location is everything here, gorgeous view of the beach, but it's next to a kids pool so be prepared just in case for a very energetic atmosphere.

    Sunset view and ambiance were terrific. Food wasn’t great… meatball sandwich cold and fell apart. Fish of the day over seasoned and cooked. If the food was slightly better this would be a great casual evening spot. Bonus to have sunset view without booking weeks in advance.

    Westin has unique architecture. Need to navigate multi stairs to get to grill level…limited signage. Fantastic location for sunsets without the crowds. Seated on time. Live musician. Pass on the pork sandwich-very dry. Go for Parker farm burger over rice with brown sauce.

    Good location if you are staying at Westin. Only choice there on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Service was both slow and abrupt/mechanical. Food was not cooked as requested. Better than driving for half an hour to find something else after a long day at the beach.

    Lovely, great location, good food, well-priced menu and a very good value. Love the sunset views from poolside table. The star of this restaurant is Chandler, the hostess extraordinaire. Chandler made my husband and me feel like family. She remembered our favorite table and a few other preferences. She enhanced our experience each of the many, many times we dined here.

    Not going back sadly because the view is worth it but food was overcooked fish in a super dry tortilla and a wimpy glass of rose wine for $14 in a plastic juice glass….our server was super sweet and attentive but not going to spend $140 for 2 people to eat fish tacos that were horrible Sorry Naupaka you could do better
