    We first started with an awesome Frozen Coconut Mojito. For our starters my wife had the Caesar Salad while I had the Maui Breeze Salad, both were very tasty. For our main meal my wife ordered the Veggie Wok Stir Fry with Mahi, that was a little too sweet for her liking, while I had the Cilantro Macadamia Crusted Mahi which was great along with a nice glass of wine. The sunset and great service by Michael topped the evening.

    Lovely restaurant with Ocean views but the food was average-. Our mahi-mahi fish was disappointing. Chicken ad bacon pasta was good. Fish tacos were so so. Our server was very good considering that the restaurant was understaffed. We chose to go here because we had $300 in gift certificates and this was the only one available for reservations! Hmm. The ones we couldn't go to included Kimos, Leilanis, Dukes, Laihaina Grill. would not recommend

    The coconut shrimp was really good but the rest of the meal was disappointing. Seafood linguine had no seasoning and signature cocktails were not good. The waiter was not attentive and our food was cold before we could stop him to get pepper.

    Visited restaurant in June 2022 with my husband and daughter. Chose this restaurant due to reviews and ability to make a reservation. The only reason I gave this restaurant 2 stars is because of the view. The food was nothing above an Applebee’s. Our waiter was overworked due to the quantity of tables he was serving. He checked on us once during the whole meal. It was a waste of money and restaurant choice to go to this restaurant.

    Beautiful Sunset Dinner, had reservations but had to talk and confirm with 3-4 people before being seated. The table and chairs were wobbly but great views and wonderful setting with mellow live musician singing a lot of classics! Food was ok and service slower - island time 🤙. The ambiance is great so was a good experience overall.

    This restaurant is horrible. I had a reservation and they could not seat us because they had no help. They should tell you this before driving all the way over there. The girl who was up at the desk had no clue what she was doing. I finally got someone who was a bit higher then her and we got a table but sat there for 45 minutes without anyone coming over. We finally got up and left and went back to our hotel to eat. Also the pictures make this place look nice but it looks old and is very small.

    The food was VERY good, especially the Poke' bowl. The fresh catch was a bit overpriced for the portion size but delicious. We enjoyed the food, ambiance and live music too. We went resort hopping at restaurants during our vacation - this is a good one for that one nice dinner. Expect a higher priced bill but worth it.

    We ate here twice this trip as it was within walking distance from where we were staying. The food was mostly good. We had the combo plate and fish tacos the first night. On the second we split a salad and a burger with dessert. The salad, The Royal Burger and the cheesecake were very good, but the fries with the burger came out cold. The server was happy to bring a new batch of fries. The fish on the combo plate was over cooked to the point of hard and rubbery, but there was so much other food to eat we didn’t complain. When I mentioned it to the server after dinner he could not have cared less. I didn’t want anything, I just thought they should know, but it was almost like he’d heard it several times that night and didn’t want to acknowledge it again. No worries, I just won’t order the fish next time. The view and the other food are definitely worth going back.

    Hands down our best meal so far. The coconut shrimp was the best tasting we ever had and had to order a second. I can’t speak for the other meals but the macadamia nut Mahi is fantastic. Our waiter was attentive and very friendly. The ambiance and music just pulled it all together.

    The service was outstanding! The food flavorless and mediocre, had the daily catch and steak, the steak was cooked appropriately but a cheap cut for a NY. The Mahi was a good filet and portion, but the macadamia and pesto crust could have been more, so much more.

    Delicious food and beautiful outdoor patio setting with a Hawai’ian guitarist performing poolside. Sunset is magical; recommend sunglasses if you’re not under the patio roof. Drive there if you’re not staying at the resort since it’s on the other side of the Sheraton point. There’s a guard shack, just say you have reservations. Well worth it!

    We had the best service, the best food and the best seat overlooking the pool, beautiful grounds and a wedding! My only suggestion would be to use two tortillas on the fish tacos as they were hard to eat with only one! My husband’s Kaanapali Mixed Plate was the best! Our only wish is that we would have known about this place earlier in our Maui stay! We will definitely return next year!

    My main dish was delicious, I had the seafood linguini. Cocktails weren’t anything amazing, and our appetizer which was the Tomato Crostini was soggy. My husband had the Poke Bowl, and he wasn’t blown away. Our server was very odd, and had a weird sense of humor- I kind of felt like he was making fun of me at points. I wouldn’t go back.

    Unless you are staying at the resort or a walker, you will not know about this hidden gem (we discovered the place by accident during a stroll on the “Beach Walk”). Initially, we stopped in for a drink and met the bartender, Nate. Nate makes a FANTASTIC Bloody Mary! We inquired about the restaurant and Nate informed us about the flatbread. Get the one with the pulled-pork! We had the flatbread and a salad between the two of us and and leftovers for lunch the next day. Our server was Aubrey. She was fantastic and very informative. The place has a wonderful ocean view and a great place to watch the sunset. I did not want to write this review out of fear that the place will be “swamped” and I would not be able to get reservations in the future!

    Christian was a great server. He made the experience more pleasant. We arrived a little early but the table was ready so we were seated promptly. Got there in time to view a gorgeous Maui sunset. Food was excellent. Entertainment was very good, not too loud and continuous so that was a good vibe. I would go back the next time in Maui for sure and recommend to anyone..

    Having eten here several times, I will say we were disappointed in the overall menu choices and quality of the meals selected, especially considering it was Mother's Day. To mke it even more disappointing was that we brought another couple with us for a first tie visit. Not sure you will see either of us back. really a shame.
