    This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. Was better than any Michelin restaurant I’ve been to, not only for the ambiance but the quality of food and service. The hotel itself was also stunning! Naturally, it is pricey but that comes with the territory of being the best. Also, both our servers were extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and personable. They made the dinner fun and interactive by sharing some of their passion for Maui with us.

    Amazing dinner and service at The Restaurant. Food was top notch from start to finish and service was impeccable. If they don’t already have a Michelin Star they certainly deserve it. Both the lanai balcony and romantic, lush garden area with gorgeous cafe lights and secluded private tables are wonderful spots. Best meal we had in Maui!

    Absolutely hands down the best meal on island! If you are looking for an incredible meal with complex flavors, farm to table ingredients, locally sourced foods, and an amazingly beautiful setting and view, this is it! Chef Ryan Cruz and his top notch team make the whole experience a joyful event. From the impeccable service to the flawless execution of each and every course, this was such a special experience. There is a 3 course price fixed menu for $140 that you can add on to or do ala carte. We began with oysters on the half shell with caviar atop served with a well balanced mignonette sauce. Fresh, ice cold and the presentation was sheer perfection! Freshly make burrata salad is the best! Followed by a fresh lobster tortellini with lobster sauce that you’ll want to soak up with the freshly baked bread (lavender sea salt butter is incredibly delicious). We had waygu steak cooked perfectly medium rare and was like “butter”! Oppakkapaka incredible, so fresh, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Then for dessert the Pineapple Pavlova and the Chocolate. See photo of the menu. The views are so very romantic! Very special place. We don’t miss an opportunity to dine here. It’s a hidden gem that you won’t want to miss!

    Food is very good, especially the entrees. Service is also very good. It's expensive, and the food in the Birdcage Bar is excellent too. So I would probably just do bar service next time.

    Horrible service. Ordered breakfast and received only half of my order. Had to hunt down other servers (bus boy/other waitress) multiple times for help/assistance with order and never received the rest of the original meal ordered. When we finally found our original waiter, his comment was “my bad”….I have been coming to Maui for years and would recommend recommend going anywhere else but here. Also, I never write reviews, this is my first review in 20+ years… worst experience dining anywhere.

    Service from Nick was impeccable. Food was not so good. Fish was dry and raw. Oysters had so much shell snd Brussels sprouts had parmigiano cheese that had no flavor and did not melt. They also were very under cooked and had no flavor. Our wedding night dinner was horrible.

    Quite frankly it was one of the best dining experiences of my life. I'm so, so, SO sorry I don't remember our server's name because she was incredible—so welcoming, so helpful, so wonderful. The service from the whole staff was beautiful. And the hospitality of giving me a little card, a message in chocolate on my dessert, and bubbles for our table for my birthday was so special and appreciated!! As for the food. My god. I will dream of this meal for the rest of my life. It has only been 24 hours and we've already reminisced about it approximately seven times. Everything was perfect. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The location is gorgeous. The food is imaginative, but expensive and the prix fixe menu includes a tiny starter, and three courses, all of which are small. Often for a restaurant of this caliber there would be an additional small course between the main and dessert, or something else.

    Eaten at lots of wonderful places this vacation but felt the price fixe dinner was $20-30 too high at $140pp for appetizer, entree and dessert. The food we did have was delicious and atmosphere great too but the appetizers were on the smaller side. Dessert was very good but not excellent. At this price point would you ever order chicken or a mushroom entree or eggplant entree?Yet there they were, something for everyone. This would have been a better menu if it was priced a la carte. That way the chicken enthusiasts and vegetarians would not feel like they were supplementing the lobster diner’s dinners.

    Ambiance nice in the “Birdcage” but food was lukewarm and service terrible. Went for breakfast and ordered one coffee which never arrived and 2 eggs benny (one regular and one crab cake). In fact our original server never returned to our table after taking our food order. Once the food finally arrived, it was lukewarm at best and nobody came to check on us at all (though it was tasty). There were some mixups in the kitchen apparently as someone came by to confirm our orders and we overheard about mixups, confusion and apologies at the table next to us. I’m glad we just went for breakfast instead of the dinner we were originally planning. This was disappointing as we’d been wanting to try it for a while.

    The food here is amazing, the service is great, and the view is spectacular. However, the restaurant has an unfortunate layout facing into the trade winds that makes it as if you are dining in front of a fan the ENTIRE TIME. We had to keep our glasses on the napkins and menus, and held wine glasses at all times, to keep everything from flying away. It was noisy, despite no one talking loudly. It even felt cold because of the effect of the blowing wind. Since the entire restaurant is effectively outside with a roof, there was nowhere to retreat to. Good luck!

    Brilliant meal. Just perfectly executed & prepared. Our table tried a variety of many dishes & all were fantastic. No misses at a table of 6! Just a lovely evening to send friends back to the mainland on a high note. The wonderful thing about the Restaurant is you can count on every meal being special. Staff & chef always deliver w grace & excellence.

    Overall, a good experience…However, the bread served was burned on the top. This wasn’t a big deal, but surprising for a restaurant with this reputation. While our waiter was superb, we did have a couple of servers attempt to deliver dishes to our table that were not ours. Again, not a huge error - but surprising, given the reputation. The food (apart from the burnt bread) was flavourful and well plated. It was quite windy out during our dinner (the restaurant, while covered, is completely open otherwise) - so not quite the ambiance of prior occasions.
