The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea
From its perch on the hillside above South Maui's Wailea resort area, the restaurant offers sweeping panoramic ocean views from the upper lanai and intimate dining under the stars in the garden. Voted one of OpenTable's Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in the US, and Top 10 Restaurants in Hawaii.
A delicious 4 course prefix French menu that’d undoubtedly be Michelin-starred if Michelin reviews Maui restaurants. The service was excellent and the ambience and the view are serene and beautiful (come to see the sunset). My only suggestion is to introduce more local Hawaiian flavors in the dishes. Overall an excellent meal.
Incredible view, lovely and sophisticated menu. We ate here two nights in a row. It’s that good.
Delicious Thanksgiving meal. Probably the best turkey I have ever had.
We always make a visit to The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea when on vacation in Maui, This time we should have skipped. It is a set menu. The beers were warm and waitstaff did a terrible job pouring it and it turned flat. The staff was new and awkward. The food was ok. Not my favorite visit. We will return and give them another shot because normally they are amazing.
Derrin and trainee, Megan? were very pleasant and informative of the menu. Checking up on all things very stealthily. Would highly recommend going again next time around.
All of the meal was beautifully presented and of course taste was great! The amounting food looked smaller compared with other restaurants but it was actually perfect size and filled us fully! We’ll definitely come back again!!!
From the food to the staff to the sunset views, everything was exceptional. My boyfriend was originally hesitant to go because nothing on the menu, when viewing beforehand, jumped out at him. He walked away admitting it was the best meal he’s ever had. A special thank you to Samson & Ian for taking such good care of us. Mahalo!
Awesome servers and delicious foods and drinks. We will be back for sure.
The ambiance was amazing. Serving was slow to fair. Dinner was average. Not worth the $359 we spent. It won’t be a do over for us.
Such a great experience. From the friendly greeting, acknowledging our continued business to the amazing table in the secluded and beautiful garden area to the great service, our visit was perfect. The chef’s skill was obvious...the fresh ingredients were perfectly prepared. Our server’s timing and interaction with us was great - he knew exactly how to provide just the right amount of interaction. We can’t wait to come back!
It was a birthday dinner I’d arranged for my wife. There were plenty of choices in the pre fixed menu, and all of our choices were delicious. The service from Ian was personable, quiet, and very helpful.
The restaurant staff wished my wife a happy birthday when they first interacted, and Ian brought a lovely chocolate birthday cake.
Beautiful restaurant, unique food and fantastic service
Excellent dining experience celebrating a birthday. Most expensive meal I’ve ever paid for. Worth every penny👋
Disappointed that the previous chef was no longer there. Thank goodness we ate somewhere else and had an appetizer before arriving. We would have been starving, otherwise. I hate complaining but the appetizer was two miniature shrimp with a nice sauce. Why they couldn’t have included a few extra shrimp that were at least normal size is beyond me.
We have dined here several times and always loved it but the portions now are a half to 2/3’s less. The prefix menu was overpriced for the food that was delivered.
Although we ate here several times last year we will think twice about going back.
Love the setting and the ambience but really wish we had food!
The setting was stunning and the food was impeccable!
Great food, great service, and great ambiance.
Sadly our food was awful.
New chef. Beautiful restaurant, bad food.
Hopefully they’ll get a new chef, again.
Service was great but the menu was quite bland in options. Portion size is laughable. Ambiance is lovely
We celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary dinner here with friends. It was an incredible dining experience. Unlike any other we have enjoyed in 29 years of coming to Maui! Can’t wait to come back and stay at the Hotel Wailea for our 30th and enjoy more meals here!
Great experience. Staff were very kind and engaging. Food was awesome. Beautiful ambiance 👍🏻
The food was fantastic but the portions were tiny so we left hungry.
This hotel is GORGEOUS first of all. The restaurant has so many special touches and a beautiful view of the water & mountains. The dining experience is wonderful. A lengthier dinner but also very pricy. It was worth it for a nice birthday dinner. Delicious food and decadent presentation. It was an experience and memorable too!
The hotel and grounds itself were incredible. Very romantic and beautiful. Restaurant food and staff could not have been better. So attentive to every detail and delicious. Highly recommend for a special evening.
It was a return visit-and you didn’t disappoint. Will hopefully be returning mid January 2021 and looking forward to making another reservation.
Exquisite flavors and picture perfect dinners. A very intimate experience as we were one of the last reservations and was one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had. Prefix menu had incredible flow of flavors that complimented one bite to the next. It was very dark and wish I was able to enjoy the scenery and the ocean views a bit more. All in all this hillside gem was worth the 5 star experience that it was rumored to be. Quite pricey, but worth it. Can't wait to stay in the hotel someday.
Beautiful, staff very knowledgeable, food excellent...bar excellent! COVID-19 spacing excellent, following all the rules .
Always a great meal, tasting portions are small but sufficient for tasting and let you have a nice sampling of flavors. Pricey, but for a special meal while on a nice vacation, not unexpected
Great food but wish you had a broader menu!
Enjoyed your service from Sole, our waiter.
Food is just ok.
Outstanding creative food and presentation
Better than Spago, Morimoto, and Humuhumu.
The sashimi was room temperature and tasted old. Burrata salad was ok. Our server was polite and informative. The venue is lovely as always in that architecturally exquisite hotel. We miss Kapiche and noticed the difference. Will we return? Probably but only to the bar.
The ambiance, the sunset, the service and the food were outstanding. I couldn’t fault anything. It was a perfect evening and I would definitely recommend this especially for a special occasion.
View: phenomenal. Sat us right on the corner on the balcony. Food: oysters are the best I have ever had! Small but full of flavor. Staying at the hotel so the restaurant “looks” I am already spoiled by them but all open air and clean and pictures don’t do this place justice.
It’s a MUST if you staying in Wailea! Awesome all the way around...food, service and view!
Excellent dining experience. Highly recommend.
If you’re vegetarian or pregnant, avoid this restaurant as you won’t find options on the menu.
Restaurant Wailea is a great choice overall for many reasons especially the great view that can provide one of the best spots on the island to watch the sunset. We enjoyed everything but the duck entree was a disappointment. I have had this dish on previous visits but this time the preparation changed and unfortunately the skin was not only limp and chewy but also some connective tissue was left on the breast resulting in unpalletable bites and was not what you'd expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Nonetheless the Ahi poke squid ink chip is some of the best around
