Delicious and lovely! Only complaint was that our reservation was for 5pm, and we didn’t get seated for 34 mins. We would definitely go again.
Delicious fresh fish and hamburgers. Beautiful ambiance of plantation garden area. Amanda excellent waitress. Welcoming service. Omg deserts it was our anniversary so we were served bread pudding so ono. Fresh drinks Lovely lunch treat.
My husband and I went here while in Kauai for our honeymoon. After a very unpleasant experience at Sam’s Ocean View, which is very tacky yet still a similar price point. The Plantation at the Gaylord is a treasure! Such a beautiful property and a gorgeous outdoor space that is elegant and classy but not pretentious. We had a small patio, facing the sunset which was stunning that evening. Everyone was dressed nice, the staff was so attentive (shoutout to Donna), and the food was phenomenal. I had the short ribs and wow am I glad I did! My husband got the catch of the day (even though I’m the real catch here) and he love it as well. He also said the Mai Tai and said it was by far the best one he’s ever had. The plantation pie was also wonderful. Overall, if you’re looking to go to an actually nice dinner, which compared to everywhere else in Kauai is actually really reasonably priced, please come check this place out. Highlight of our trip for dining! Also, be sure you make a reservation!!!!
Great food, incredible ambiance. Can't wait to come back.
I would recommend eating here and will be back myself. Unfortunately I couldn’t give it 5 stars because I’m comparing it to all the other great restaurants I’ve eaten at on Kauai. That being said service was nice, food was flavorful and moderately priced, and our seating had a good view of the garden.
I have visited this restaurant the first time I came to Kauai thirty years ago, and have been back each year since that first time. The restaurant’s setting in a garden is lovely, and the food which is moderately priced is as fine as the plates served in price gouging restaurants such asBeach House and RedSalt. Last night, I had the rib eye steak which was superbly prepared en beurre blanc with mashed potatoes and green beans. The only miss was the plantation pie which was a tasteless, sugary mess. The service was excellent throughout. We’ll be back again next year.
Another amazing family meal at the Plantation! We are so thankful that they were open for business! The food is always delicious! Our waitress was so kind and friendly! Mahalo!
Ambiance was great, service great, food was good but a bit pricey.
Lovely setting. Bison and beef burgers were delicious as was the fish and chips.
However, they are short-staffed. We didn’t get seated till almost 2 although we had a reservation for 1. And it took an hour for the food to arrive
The was one of the highlights to our trip to Kauai. The pandemic has made finding places to eat very difficult. This was one experience that felt a bit like the pre-pandemic Kauai that we loved.
Great service and delicious food. We will definitely go back on our visit to the island.
They used too much sauce on the entrees, literally drenched. The kids fish, rice, green beans was the best out of what we ordered. Servers appeared stressed. The setting is beautiful.
Had the fish special, very good, outside dining, nice atmosphere
My wife and I stayed in Kauai for a week and ate here for lunch on our last day. This was easily our favorite meal we had. The tomato bisque was probably the best I have ever had. The braised short rib dip was delicious. It came with fries and I’m pretty sure they make their own ketchup, or at least use a ketchup I have never had. Either way, even that was great too. The plantation pie we ate for dessert was also outstanding. The environment/ambience beautiful. We sat in a raised gazebo area, and it was beautiful. If you are going to Kauai, make sure to eat a meal here, period.
Great meal and great service. The hits were the caprese salad and the ribeye, but everything was great.
Great dinning experience- love the location and the food
The ambiance and outside scenery was very nice.
Beautiful garden dining. We will definitely come back next trip. Loved our table overlooking the garden.
I have been there many times but this time the food was far below par. The steak was greasy, the lamb was flavorless and the mashed potatoes were cold.
Caesar salad was overly dressed
Won Ton with crab and cream cheese had very very little crab
Steak was very, very fatty - really not edible
Our son’s 7th birthday celebration was memorable. We loved the ambience the chef made a special vegetarian curry for us we loved. Out son loved his pasta with marinara sauce. He celebrated with a delicious chocolate lava cake. The Mai tai is the best I have had with fresh sugar cane juice.
Wonderfully relaxing. Great food. This is a must try
Delicious meal and tasty mai tai. We hope to come back someday!
This was wonderful dining experience. The food and service were both great! So was the price!
Wondering experience! The staff was so attentive, the food was fantastic and the property is absolutely beautiful.
‘Twas good. Our server Jeff was amazing! Never let this guy go.
What a beautiful way to end our amazing trip to Kauai. The setting was just beautiful.
The service was good and our waitress was outstanding. Like many other businesses, they could use additional staff and will probably hire more when people return to work.
Excellent service excellent food couldn’t have asked for a better evening!
Food was very good. Limited staff as is the current condition but attentive. Excellent desserts. Best cream pie ever!
Excellent experience…all the way around
We enjoyed getting out and dining at Gaylord’s. The hostess definitely needs more training. We had a great gal for waiter but had to listen to a loud obnoxious waiter and the table next to us. He needs to tone it down and be aware there are other diners that are trying to talk and enjoy their meal. Not listen to his loud booming voice and obnoxious personality.
Thank goodness he wasn’t our waiter.
Amazing banana cream pie, fresh drinks made with fruit from the on site orchard, and attentive service!
Service was excellent. Knowledge wine service. Good- eh. Fish overcooked and layered on a mountain of carbs. Not delicate desire. Lord of bulk. Lovely environment.
Food was delicious and ambience pretty. It was a charming experience with a true plantation vibe. Wait staff was very responsive and enthusiastic. I would definitely return and highly recommend. The Banana Cream pie dessert was my favorite!
The grounds are gorgeous. The staff is lovely and the ambiance is relaxing and tranquil. The food was supremely fresh and prepared with care. We will absolutely return.
We were there for our 50th Anniversary, and it was a great choice. The service was very attentive, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Outstanding in every way. The Mai Tais are also the best we have ever had.
We have been coming to Gaylord's for years--it's an absolutely beautiful location, the food is lovely, service impeccable, wonderful ambiance. It's the first place we come for dinner or lunch when we get to Kauai, and we try to get there a number of times while we're there. Bar is excellent as well.
Wonderful location. Fabulous food!
Great choice for a nice relaxing lunch. Much more reasonably priced than dinner
