The food was exceptional as usual especially the steak and lobster! I was amazed at the size of the lobster. The service was also outstanding as well as the beautiful sunset views. TANTE’S is our favorite place to celebrate special occasions. Highly recommended!

From looking at the menu we expected this place to be a little more high end especially with the amazing location, but we found it to be very underwhelming and somewhat of a letdown. The service was great, but the food was average and the ambiance was below our expectations. We also put in the notes we were celebrating an anniversary and the restaurant didn't even acknowledge that, which again isn't a big deal but was a letdown. Probably wouldn't return for a special occasion, more of a casual dining spot but the price point doesn't match the ambiance.

Overall experience was good but we had to wait for an hour for our food. Ordering Sushi took over an hour to reach our table. Food was okay. Our waitress was great

Short on service staff.. Took long to get our entre’ and the entire order was wrong.. I ordered a rib eye steak M/W and received a steak and lobster, steak was overdone.. I wasn’t waiting any longer to get my correct entre’ so I took the steak and lobster.. My wife and sister ordered steak and lobster and both of their meals were wrong as well.. The only order that came out correct was 2 mud pies.. We also wanted to order sushi, but the chef was slammed doing other peoples orders..

It was busy but it didn’t affect the quality of food. Our appetizer, sushi, dinner and dessert were delicious! Staff were friendly, courteous and attentive. We’d definitely visit Tante’s again!

It was good to see the restaurant was busy but the service was very slow from order time to service. The food was just okay. The sauteed Mahi was overbearing with lemon and overpowered the delicate fish flavor. The panko-breaded mahi was heavily breaded and also overpowered the dry fish. The server forgot a to-go order. Coffee was ordered and forgotten and finally served lukewarm 30 minutes later. Server apologized. Overall the service and food wouldn't bring me back but the ambiance and view would for a social outing with friends.

The place was a little dirty, a little rundown. The food was fine but the problem was is that we ordered an appetizer salad and an entrée, and everything came at the same time. I thought that was kind of weird. Service was good as well. We will try again but I hope they read this and clean up the place and especially the bathrooms.

Location has a nice view of the harbor. Seating is comfortable.
Noise level is high, esp. if there is a large party (30) in the banquet room!
Staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and responsive!
Food was very good! We had Monchong prepared in the Classic way, as well as
with the Panang Curry. The entrees come with two sides, very generous but
too much food for our appetites. We were able to eliminate sides without
any fuss. Very helpful in that regard. I highly recommend this for a night out,
just be aware of the possible noise level.

I don't know where to begin...when I first walked into the restaurant I thought the place was empty because of the cool layout of the restaurant it gave me an amazing view of the harbor. The waitress was super friendly and told us we just made it to happy hour. My wife really enjoyed her cocktail (it had peanut ball in it) so tasty! When pur food came out I ordered an appetizer of the Ahi belly and the ribs, my wife ordered a seafood plate EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS! the ribs fell off the bone!!! The ahi belly was like eating butter it was so tasty and rich...our experience was super great and it wasnt expensive! Thank you we will visit again soon!

This is definitely the best bang for my buck. I was on a blind date and I didn't want to spend a lot of money which worked out perfectly we are both able to have our own entrees Plus an appetizer for under 40 bucks.

This was a horrible experience.

We made a reservation, but upon arrival had to wait despite the restaurant only being half full.

They took our drink and meal order. The server seemed to on his first day. He was very flustered and awkward.

Drinks arrived. They were terrible. (Mai tai) worst of the worst.

The table around us filled. Their orders taken. Their orders came. People left new people. Still no food. No offer for another drink or courteous update. By the way....the people beside us ordered the same thing after us. Theirs came first.

The manager came by after we requested an update on food. He said the paper tickets sometimes get mixed up. We believe our order never got placed which is fine but then own that and offer an appie or a drink.

Then as we continue to wait we watched and heard two more table get the same empty apology and sob story.

One full hour from the time we ordered until the less than ideal meal was delivered. Luke warm fries. Soggy fish.

The table beside us has begun to complain now. And the cycle continues.

It’s loud as hell in here.

The location is a gold mine with a good chef and a staff who can perform, this place could easily be a top hot spot. Do us all a favour and replace this with a Monkeypod or a Bubba gumps. Won’t be long and this place should be up for lease!

We’ve eaten here a few times now. The sushi is outstanding both in taste and presentation! We’ve had a couple different fish dinners which were amazing as well. My husband says they have the best tasting rice he’s ever had...lol. We’ve seen a concert here- so much fun and had drinks at the bar. The prices are very reasonable and we look forward to doing some happy hours! This is our new ‘go to’ when on Maui!!

I love the location and the beautiful ocean and Haleakala views. Another plus is the fish is fresh from the waters next to the restaurant. There are some vegetarian items as well.
Our group also loved the Happy Hour pupus and drinks...the Mai Tais were excellent

Good ambiance, live music in the background, great view...but food portions seemed small and my Blue Hawaiian drink was basically soda water with a splash of blue. Def NOT good, but I drank it because I was thirsty. I didn't pay so I didn't see the total bill to know if it was a good value (we had mahi so it was "market price" - not sure how much). We did get a couple of apps from the happy hour menu but $12+ for 6 coconut shrimp didn't seem like a good happy hour deal. Overall, good vibe, decent service, but the bad drink skews my reviews. Too many other good places to try.

Booked a table for me and my family and we got to the restaurant 10 mins early didn’t get seated until 20 minutes even though there were many tables open. Our waiter was dreadful, was rushing us the take our order and booked it out of there. Didn’t come to take our drinks and didn’t even deliver our food as she had someone else do it. The only time we seen her was for the bill. The food was mediocre and the portions were small . In all I wouldn’t come back here.

Although the pictures on the menu show the seafood dishes with a starch and a vegetable, these items do not come with your coconut shrimp ordered from the seafood section of the menu. I was greatly disappointed that my coconut shrimp "meal" consisted only of coconut shrimp.

Loved the food selections... We would highly recommend .. however they did not have our reservation that was placed using "OpenTable" online which was very disappointing. They asked only if we called in directly, if that was the case I would not have used the "OpenTable" online reservation and just called. Other than that it was a great restaurant and the bonus part was that we saw whales just right outside of the Maalaea Harbor from our table..
