We wouldn’t change anything about our experience. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and the landscaping was breathtaking!
Sitting on the porch of a former plantation house in Hawaii being served excellent food is a dream I never had growing up , okay, until I started coming to Hawaii annually about 18 years ago. This restaurant doesn't have an ocean view, but our another favorite restaurant in Poipu doesn't either, but both have a great ambiance with service and food to match. The only disappointments we have had here were when it was being remodeled which seemed like forever and when we were unable to dine here for three nights during one trip when it was closed for private events-translation is weddings. Find Plantation Gardens and enjoy a meal to remember.
One meal was excellent, wrapped in leaves, fresh vegetables, just right spiced fish and shrimp, but the special of the day was so bland we were at a loss as to what to do about it.
Amazing scenery and great food. The garden is spectacular and very romantic. Will definitely be returning
Great service, amazing food, good view of the gardens and overall best bang for your buck 🤙
Wonderful setting, great food
Came back for the first time in 20+ years and it is still as good as we remember. Beautiful setting, excellent food and quiet colonial atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
We were seated in the bar area when our table wasn't ready as reserved and our service was awful. I had to get up and grab a water pitcher myself because no one on the staff thought to assist our server. It took what seemed like forever to place our order and my sister-in-law waited ten minutes to get her glass of wine. The food was amazing once it arrived. As promised from our kayaking guide earlier that day, the seafood lau lau and the pot roast were the best ever. The gardens were beautiful. The meal was pricey and you only get your entree, so I left a bit hungry to be honest.
Favorite for many, many years. PG is a quite, well-thought-out experience for anyone looking for quality dining without the mainland vibe. Been going here for nearly 10 years and it hasn't changed: In a really refreshing way. With the explosion of new development and eating venues on the South Side, Plantation Gardens is still our favorite dinner spot.
Everything was fresh, perfectly prepared, and tasted wonderful. The service was also fantastic. Nice outdoor dining spot.
Highly recommend. It was a beautiful night out for us.
Had the dinner rolls which were good, the crab Rangoon’s which was a bit odd tasting... the sauce didn’t quite compliment the filling. Had the Kale Cesar Salad which was good but would have been better with a tablespoon more dressing. For my entree I had the seafood lau lau which wasn’t as good as I remembered. It had a strange sweet flavor with pepper flakes that didn’t quite go well with the ingredients, the seafood had no taste. Otherwise the service was good, waiter was kind as well as the buss boy.
We went for dinner at 7:30 it was difficult finding the entrance to the restaurant because it was dark and confusing to what walkway to take would be very difficult for anyone in a scooter or handicap cart. Good thing we had bug repellent because mosquitos were biting like crazy. I think the grounds would be great in the daytime but at night no. My fish special was disappointing was dry and had a crust I’ve never had before it was quinoa which I think was not cooked I could hardly eat it left more than half on my plate. Will never return
Loved everything about this restaurant. The minute we walked in through walking out every employee was friendly, kind, and made us feel special. The food was phenomenal and our server Alan was fantastic!
Absolutely delectable; from the chicken wings in a spicy orange firecracker sauce, to the pot roast that you could cut with a fork. The wine pairings they had were also really well done.
Great food and very comfortable atmosphere! Will come back again!
Excellent dinner in a very nice setting. They set us up on the lanai on a round table for seven. Fairly private. A little noisy at first because of another large party. Once they left it was perfect.
simply delicious with every bite
Plantation Gardens is a lovely open air restaurant surrounded by beautiful gardens and orchids.
Delicious food with beautiful landscaping surrounding the restaurant. I ordered the grilled fish which was good, husband got the ribeye steak which he said was good & adult son got the Lau lau & didn’t quite like all the steamed vegetables in it but liked the scallops & shrimp.
We had a wonderful time.
This was are 45 yr anniversary wedding. Wanted to go somewhere we went on our first date. It was as lovely as we remembered.
Apart from a random stray cat who kept wandering around the tables begging for food, the dinner was wonderful!
The service was wonderful. We enjoyed all our meals and they kindly treated us to our dessert as we were celebrating an engagement! We loved the atmosphere. The patio lights were lovely. We have come here several times and have never been disappointed. We will come back.
The food was exceptional especially the pot roast very generous portion and tasty
Lovely garden setting. Request table outside on porch. Average food. Service lacked efficiency, polish, and pleasant attitude.
Good selection great tasting entree and pupus
Worth the time
Plantation Garden is a delightful restaurant where most diners sit on the airy broad porch overlooking the gardens. Torches flare as the sun sets. The menu is varied and the food delicious. I tried the seafood lau lau, flavorful and cooked to perfection, and the poke tuna appetizer, generous, tasty and refreshing. Wonderful Kaua'i dining.
Fabulous in every way! Food is outstanding! Service impeccable! My favorite restaurant on the island. A must in every visit.
Loved it! Food was amazing and Alan our server was great!
Delightful dining o Kauai. A very beautiful setting with impressive orchid garden. Wait staff is very pleasant. Food is good, but not particularly innovative. But all-in-all a very enjoyable dinner.
Great service. Amazing food!! Drinks made with fresh ingredients. Loved the mojito. Want that cheesecake again for sure!
Lovely setting and great food. Unfortunately they have relocated the bar and made the dining area much smaller. It used to be nice to sit in the bar and have pupus away from the main dining room.
Excellent food, service, and great table with an ocean view for our anniversary =)
Food was great and Allen was an excellent waiter
Michael provided us with great service! He knew the way the food was cooked, and explained the ingredient and the taste to assist us with our selection. The rest of the staff was friendly and professional. The pot roast was so tender! I also loved their wedge salad! Mahalo!
Very causal atmosphere and great views and flower gardens and are wow
This restaurant feels like Kauai, the food isn’t as good as prior years but overall it’s a nice experience
This is beautiful, peaceful setting. Prices are reasonable, ribs and fries were outstanding.
