Food was not very good. Order was messed up twice and my husband sat waiting for his food while everyone ate. He had ordered the same as me - fish taco’s. Sunset was beautiful!

We spent two weeks in Maui and this was by far the best dinner we had - food and atmosphere. Service was equally as good!

All you need to know about Oceanside is the view; its the best sunset view on Maui. As an added bonus there is great people watching on the boardwalk in front of the restaurant, the lawn across and the boats coming in for the evening. The food is typical Maui beachfront; pretty good and really expensive. It doesn’t matter, you get a front row seat for the best sunset view on the island. Much better experience than the crowded restaurants at Whaler’s Village.

Very good food great location. Service was sloooooow. And we were there for happy hour.
Think it’s a gimmick. No or very little liquor in the drinks. Gets you to purchase more than you would normally so negates the happy hour savings

We stayed at the Westin which is attached to this restaurant... food and service all good... but the view ... if you sit on the grass by the ocean.... which is the only place you should made for a fantastic.dinner .... also loved the torches lit at dusk.

We had the worst waiter I’ve ever had in my life. I had waited for YEARS to eat here & was so excited to celebrate with my husband at dinner. Made our reservation 2 weeks in advance. So disappointing. Ended up leaving after only having appetizers, we had been told we were forgotten numerous times, waiter brought incorrect drinks, and took 90 mins just for apps to be delivered. We were so disappointed.

Wiederholt im "Oceanside" gewesen. Leider war wegen einer Hochzeitsgesellschaft kein Platz auf dem Rasen direkt am Strand verfügbar. Trotzdem hat sich das Personal sehr bemüht, einen anderen schönen Platz zu finden. Den bekamen wir dann auf der Terrasse in erster Linie.
Essen wie immer sehr gut (seared Ahi).
Sehr nettes Personal (Percy) der uns mit unserem Namen ansprach.

Again visited "Oceanside". Due to a wedding party unfortunately there was no table on the lawn closed to the beach available. However, the staff made great efforts to find an adequate table which we got on the patio in first row. Meal was great ( seared ahi).
Very obliging waiter (Percy) who welcomed us by our name!

GORGEOUS view of the sunset. Lawn seating was taken for a private event but they gave us a table at the front of the regular seating and we had a front row view of the beautiful sunset.

It’s in a resort so you have people walking by from the resort to the whalers village shops next door, but the food is amazing and we barely noticed it! Would DEFINITELY come back again!

We had a great meal! The Mahi Tacos are wonderful. The setting is so Maui. Outside, great views of the beach with a waterfall in the background. I found the prices to be pretty good for Maui. The service was also very good. We felt well taken care of. I would highly recommend eating here.

I was very excited to go back to Oceanside after eating there two times previously on two separate trips to Maui.

It was a big disappointment to find the menu had changed (I was not able to locate one online prior to dining). The food quality was greatly reduced from my previous dining experiences there, yet the prices were not much different. The service was very slow, but I believe that was due to poor management not the server’s fault.

The Westin needs to elevate their fine dining option if they are going to compete with a comparable priced option such as Hula Grill or Hyatt’s Japengo.

The one positive was the view, but that doesn’t outweigh the disappointing menu options and slow service. Unfortunately, based on this last experience, I would not recommend or want to return to Oceanside. Note: my sister also experienced a stomach issue that night after dining at Oceanside which was just another reason not to return. I also received a ‘no show’ email from OpenTable after I had dined, which meant I had to go an extra step to re-confirm that I actually did dine at the restaurant.

Lovely evening. The setting is gorgeous being out on the grass at sunset. Great happy hour options. We had the Ceasars salad and the shrimp without the sauce. Made a great combo! The rib eye was also very good. Surprised they didn’t know what an Aperol spritz was! All in all, one our best dinners this week.

The Hostess Ally and Ana was very helpful and made our night an amazing one. We requested to be seated on the Lawn and both girls had no hesitation and said yes. The sunset made it even better. Happy Hour was from 5-7. Samuel our server was the best service I’ve had for the past 3 days i’ve been on Maui. The presentation when we got our food was phenomenal.

Service was horrible. Waitress ignored us...it was a special occasion, 46th anniversary, noted on the reservation. Never acknowledged.
Definitely will not return, many other quality restaurants in Whalers Village, who appreciate the business.
Parking was required in Westin Hotel lot only, only 3 hours
All other restaurants in Whalers village offer parking at the garage for FOUR hours
Hotel construction made finding the restaurant difficult
Offered nothing

Overall atmosphere could be so much better.
The hotel is noisy and crowded. You can hear 2 to 3 different type of music at all time.
Big TVs everywhere. Staff not attentive. We ended up having a drink and just leaving to somewhere else. Did not try the food.

Service was terrible, as soon as we were seated I watched our server have conversation with another table for at least 15-20 before he came I’ve and brought us menus. I booked the dinner for my wife’s birthday so when he came to the table there was a note saying it was her birthday, he picked it up and didn’t acknowledge her birthday at all. No cake, no happy birthday, no nothing. Drinks from the bar weren’t to great either. Also the server rarely came to our table once the food came. There are much better spots nearby for dinner.

First, although the space is pleasant enough, and there is no boardwalk between you and the ocean, There is no shade from the afternoon sun unless you sit behind a column, which is just a very strange design for a beachside restaurant in the tropics.

But all of that would be forgivable if the food were good, but sadly, it is not.

My wife had the Meyer Lemon Crispy Roast Chicken. The flavor was fine, but it was not crispy and the chicken was rubbery. When we brought this to the attention of the Manager, she explained that they just run it through a salamander to get it crispy. Well, that’s not ever gonna crisp chicken skin that goes into the salamander looking pale and uncoooked.

I had the Blue Crab and Macadamia Nut Mahi. It was a bit under seasoned and the Mahi itself tasted slightly fishy. Still edible but a sign of fish that has either be previously frozen or is not quite fresh. Judging it by Los Angeles standards, I’d give it maybe a 6 but you’re not going to get Mahi here that hasn’t been previously frozen. When I’m in Hawaii, I expect local fish I order to have been freshly caught and that is what Oceanside is competing against. Judging it by Maui standards, I’d give it a 2.

If this were the only place in town, I might try it again and order another dish, just in case they just had an off day - but this is West Maui, where good to excellent seafood is almost omnipresent. There’s really no excuse for this kind of stumble at this location.
