We felt rushed. Couldn’t get a reservation until 7:45. Got there a few minutes early, were directed to the bar. As soon as our drinks arrived we were almost immediately told our table was ready. It was a beautiful patio setting. We then were pretty much harassed by the waitress to order ASAP. She did not seem very interested or experienced , just all business. Food was good but nothing blew us away. After dinner they were practically sweeping under our table before we could even finish our wine. This place looks like it could be really romantic and special but we just were not feeling the vibe. Loved the ambiance of the setting…it’s a cool place for sure. Glad we went - not sure about going back though.
Good food, amusing and personable waiter. Great ambiance.
Food was wonderful! Beautiful view and area. Great service.
Lovely garden setting. We changed the reservation from dinner to lunch, and were very happy with the portions, price, and ambiance.
First time ever the fish under cooked. We go to kGaylord s a couple times a month and this is the first time we did not enjoy or eat the fish. Batter was soggy and fish under cooked. Probably just a off day. We will return. We love Gaylords.
Amazing meal and overall experience. We enjoyed so much! Thank you.
Still remains our favorite dining experience on the island. Excellent meal, excellent service! Mahalo to all!
Worst service ever. They brought bread - one piece. When eaten they tried to clear our bread plates rather than offer more bread. We ordered wine. The waitress didn’t have a clue. First she brought the wrong wine. Then she brought the right vineyard but not the vintage or version on the wine list. Did
I say she didn’t have a clue?
We had to tell the waitress three times that we would pour our own wine even though the first time we told her she said that she preferred to pour her own wine too. Clueless!
The food was tasty but extremely heavy for Hawaii. Heavy on the meats and even the fish was prepared with a heavy hand of sauces.
Beautiful location. Will not return.
Our family had an amazing lunch at The Plantation House. Our service was great and the food was so tasty.
Food and service was great! Will be back!
Amazing ambience and atmosphere
We enjoyed going to the Plantation House and waited about a month for our reservation. Our waitstaff was excellent, food came out hot and fresh and of course the grounds are a delight.
We had a great time the staff was very kind and friendly. Food was great but I do wish the had more vegetarian options.
We loved everything about our experience at Gaylords. Our server, Eric, was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I felt taken care of. The chef is amazing! Our monchong was delectable, and our local green salad so fresh and tasty! We indulged in a banana cream pie for dessert. The crust seemed to be made completely of crunchy coconut. So good!
The outdoor plantation feel and traditional Hawaiian music created a mood that made our meal feel special. And the shops were fun to browse (and buy a few locally made things) after our meal.
We will be back. And we will bring our local and visiting friends.
Beautiful setting, fantasic food (cioppino & pork ribeye were beautifully plated and tasted even better) and top not service (Jen you were great!) made our evening wonderful.
This restaurant greatly exceeded my expectations. Beautiful and comfortable, horse shoe shaped covered dining area around a patio. The food (fish) was excellent and our waiter Jen, was outstanding. Highly recommend. Our favorite restaurant of the week.
Great food, service atmosphere
Everything was great including our waiter. The fish dish was a little much soy sauce in it for me
Beautiful location for our final meal on Kauai before departing for home. Service was a 10+ and the meal was the best one on the island.
Food was delicious and great waiter. Loved the ambiance. Great place!!
Great experience at Gaylords. Beautiful dining area and great service by Jeff. He was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of insight into the menu.
Everything was delicious and the staff was very friendly
Food was sub par. Seafood was rubbery. Would not recommend or go back.
Gorgeous estate! Cool shops and great restaurant! The food was amazing and the desserts were delicious!
The Plantation House by Gaylords is a beautiful restaurant and the food was amazing. The only problem is that there is not enough wait staff to accommodate the tables that were seated. The server and front desk help tried their hardest - but the wait was long and many things were missed. I'll give them another try though because the food was excellent.
Every time we have eaten at this great restaurant, we are taken in by the ambiance and food quality. They absolutely have the best MaiTai recipe we have ever tasted!
Located in grand plantation house Gaylords ambiance is terrific. We had a great end table facing the expansive lawn & gardens. Service from Tiffany & crew was excellent as well as my mushroom soup & my wife’s pork chop w/Okinawan sweet potatoes. Seafood trio was good but should have had the catch of the day Chinese style. Had luau event next to us so heard Hawaiian music & singing. Nice way to spend last night in paradise!
I think the waiter was new. We ordered drinks, a bit later we ordered starters, but the drinks didn’t come until we were almost finished with the starters. When the drinks came the tray tipped, the drinks fell with glass and liquid all over including me. Of course there were apologies. Accidents do happen. I think an experienced waiter would have ad least compt the drink.
The whole experience was spectacular from start to finish! Food and service was fabulous!
Amazing food, great service. Would definitely recommend doing the Rum Safari also
It started nice with our Ahi Loki starter but then our guest was given a unsatisfactory mai tai just mostly juice very little alcohol and then their meal which was the special for the evening was very unsatisfying the manchong fish with caprese salad and potatoes and beets sauce was not enticing to the eyes or even tasty not good at all. The asparagus was at least nicely done so that was probably the only thing that was eaten from their plate from that dinner special. My guest wanted a port wine which was absolutely awful it was full of sediments so it was probably old from sitting too long the bartender should of immediately caught that before serving our table and last but not least the bread pudding was way too soggy and no flavoring. I was very embarrassed for picking this restaurant for my guest for their very first visit to eat at Gaylords but unfortunately this night the food and drinks were NOT up to Gaylord standards but one thing I do want to compliment is that our waitress and server for the evening was very professional and I do appreciate that at the least. Would I ever recommend this restaurant again to my future guest I do not know…maybe
Good food, nice atmosphere and great service! Our waitress Tiffany was very personable. We will be back!
The setting and the service was great, but the food was very outdated and heavy. It seemed like the menu hadn’t been updated since the 60s. Our waiter was amazing and the ambiance was great, I just wish the food was better.
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. Highly recommend.
The waitress was confident about her career. She talk a lot with all the guest to entertain dinners, but at the same time she lost her memries that we had order main dishes and wine and that she had committed to serve a bowl of soup to share between two of us. She said she would check the dessert was still available at the kitchen, and came back to tell the menu was finished 20mibutes later. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and the twists. The restaurant needs a more education and the significant change of the service mechanism.
We liked everything about it except for too much truffle oil in one entree.
I loved this place, the food is delicious the dessert was wonderful very recommended
Got to Gaylord's a little early so we went to the lounge. Was not crowded at all and we were able to enjoy our drink before being notified our table was ready. Service was great, the food was fantastic, and the setting was perfect.
We enjoyed our waiter from Long Island. Bus service was too notch always refilling our water and clearing empty dishes. Food was delicious seafood pasta and my husband had the seafood trio
This place was beautiful. Drinks and food were amazing! Our waitress Liz was wonderful. Definitely recommend the experience here!!
