    The freshest ahi I ever had and it was prepared to perfection. Our waitress was super friendly and recommended the most excellent drink for us-Yuzu with Hendricks called A Cocktail of 2 Cities! A must if you’re in Poipu Beach!

    If you like sushi we find it to be the best on the island. We have been coming to Kauai for many years and always plan at least two nights here. We are always greeted by Jessica the hostess who makes us feel like we have come home! The service is excellent and beautiful view setting outside!

    Excellent sushi! The Lobster Dynamite is superb! Everything is very good quality and tasty however not cheap. You get what you pay for. We eat here at least 2 times within a couple of weeks when we visit the island.

    Lovely restaurant & setting. The sushi was fresh and tasty. The only negative comment would be that we were seated in an area with quite a few small children. We are a couple in our early 70’s and would have liked to have a table away from small children.

    Asked for a Pamegranate Martini, only if they used fresh Pamegranate, which I was told they did. It came with some awful fake Pamegranate that tasted very chemically. I sent it back, asking then for a regular Cosmo. It was great, until the bottom when it tasted like dish soap. Others at the table also took a sip and verified. Gross! Food was mediocre.

    The evening was a bit cool and the doors being open created a wind tunnel effect. Loved the food … the lobster and blackened cod were amazing. The hostess helped us out immensely squeezing us in on a very busy night.

    Sushi is the specialty here; if you are not a sushi fan, this is not the place for you. Pricey, but very high quality food. Service was efficient, but not very friendly (that happens a lot when I dine solo). Very convenient for guests of the Kauai Grand Hyatt. Nice views of this beautiful ocean front property.

    Sushi very good. The tempura shrimp was by far the best, as was the miso soup. One thing i would change is the speed everything came out. Before we got our drinks, the soup arrived. The service was exceptional as our waiter explained everything and helped us select maki (recommend the crunchy maki and the salmon sashimi). Great atmosphere just wished not as rushed.

    We are locals and always go to Stevenson’s Library to celebrate special occasions. Always have a great time when we go. Food and drinks are always great too. Service could be better as I had to keep asking for water and when I got my water refilled it was warm water no ice. Don’t know what happened with the water?!
