Mini Banana Cream Pie
Everything was amazing!!!!!
Wonderful service, food was good, not amazing but satisfactory.
We loved it!!! Such a beautiful setting and the the food was great!
Great service and food. Fish was awesome. Mai tais are a must.
Had really high expectations for this dinner and sadly we were not impressed. The setting is nice, but the ambiance compared to other locations on the island just wasn’t there. The staff was friendly and we had no issues with our server. Despite a reservation we did end up needing to wait about 15 minutes which wasn’t a big deal. The food servings were quite large but the pasta and the steak were only average despite the high prices. Overall, ok food and service but not a must go place on the island. I don’t think we will make a return trip here.
I've never had banana cream pie as scrumptious as the Plantation's. The toasted coconut crust is amazing. Our server, Greg, was very good, even though he was busy. Thanks for a great dining experience!
Always great food and very attentive staff. Beautiful setting of outdoor dining.
Everything was delicious starting with our cocktails, the fried Panko brie was a new treat for us, the filet mignon was perfectly prepared. Can't get a better venue than Gaylords!
Gorgeous setting, good food and good service.
Made a reservation on line..did not have to wait for table..awesome
Gaylord was lovely upscale dinner for our special treat meal while on Kauai. Nice selection of seafood and other Hawaii options. Enthusiastic waitstaff. Nice evening.
Gaylords is quickly becoming our favorite restaurant on Kauai. Food is always delicious.
I've been here a couple of times in the past few months, both times it was excellent. The menu is seasonal, so we got to try new things this time. I think it's worth mentioning that on each occasion, everyone at the table cleaned their plates. We went with different people each time, and everyone ordered different items. Seriously, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The ingredients are fresh and interesting. I just can't say enough. This time, I had a friend visiting from Milan and he didn't stop raving about this meal until he got on the plane. It was that good. The consistency and value, make it one of the best on the island right now, and most definitely the best in Lihue. The portions are generous, but not too much so. The service is excellent, we never felt like we were waiting for the waiter to check on us or progress the meal forward, but we also never once felt rushed. We couldn't decide on a particular wine and the Sommelier picked the better of the two, not the more expensive. The atmosphere is lovely, the fresh air (especially in times of Covid) a bonus. I highly recommend (with hesitation because I want to be able to get reservations), you book this restaurant. So ONO!
This place is really only good for its ambiance. The entrees are nothing to brag about. Typical “Instagram worthy” plating without actual quality in my opinion. Staff was nice. Outside seating was nice, food not so great.
Best meal at the best setting in Kauai! Highly recommend.
Wonderful experience! Food was delicious, service was excellent, and the beautiful atmosphere made it a special dining experience. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Make a reservation for dinner or just enjoy drinks and apps in the bar. Unique experience and good rum
Beautiful atmosphere, great service and friendly servers. The food was "not our cup of tea." We ordered 2 different fish dishes. Thank fully I asked for the sauce on the side as it was very rich and salty and the fish was "unnecessarily breaded! The food prep for the items we ordered seemed very southern-style which do not suit us but readers may experience it differently.
An off day?
We LOVE this restaurant, but today was unusual. I realize that I typically arrive for lunch before noon; today we arrived at 1:30 for our reservation. We were seated closer to 2pm. Then it was (or felt like) another 30-45 minutes before we met our server. The hostess was kind enough to bring us water a bit sooner.
The vegan dish was delicious, but missing some of the key ingredients listed on the menu that had made me want to order it: eggplant and peppers among them. I was halfway through my meal when I told our server and she said she'd have them prepare some of the veggies for me -- she wound up bringing me a whole new meal, with all the ingredients -- and it was truly delicious. We watched our server working HARD. I can only surmise that like so many places the Plantation House was short staffed on the floor and in the kitchen. Maybe it would be smart for the hostess to have warned us??
The grounds are absolutely stunning. The staff were phenomenal. The food was extraordinary. A very enjoyable time.
Excellent service and great food. COVID safety protocols strictly adhered to. A great experience overall.
Great restaurant! My husband and I had a dinner here. The fried brie was to die for. Our ahi tuna and white fish plates were amazing. The service was great.
Service was excellent, drinks were outstanding & the food was ok.
We went to eat lunch here right after the train ride and it was great!
Great food, atmosphere and service.
Best Mai Tai. Our waitress was awesome. She provided superior service. She made my birthday lunch very special
On vacation- love this place- great food and best Mai tai on the island!
Really good service from the start. The host was able to get us a great table, while we waited in the bar-great specialty martinis and very attentive service in the restaurant.
Enjoyed it so much ... brought my daughter and her finance - both visiting Kauai from Honolulu.
We had a great dinner at Gaylord's and loved the outdoor seating. The food was very good, starting with the mushroom soup, beef tenderloin, seafood risotto and banana cream pie. We will be back next time we are on the island.
made reservation a week and a half in advance, for 5pm and asked for gazebo seating. we were there on time, took 15 minutes to be seated...and they took a party of 3 who had reservations at 5:45 before our party of 3. we were not seated in gazebo. this was our fourth time in a month... probably won't be back soon. wouldn't recommend without a few caveats.
Wonderful service, great food. Will definitely return.
The food is always so good and I highly recommend the brie appetizer. The staff is wonderful every time we go. We've also been to Sunday brunch and the luau on that property.
The descriptions of the menu items looked very impressive and innovative. The execution let much to be desired.
Our waiter Jeff was outstanding! Enjoyed his humor too! The food was a10, everything cooked to
Perfection and flavors were excellent. We have been to Gaylord many times but this was one of the best times.
Did not care for the room we were seated in, felt like 2nd class.
Great atmosphere and food. The service was outstanding and recommend this very much. One of my favorite's on the island.
Food was exceptional, especially dealing with the pandemic issues. Staff was very nice and engaging.
