Hawaii’s first and only Relais & Châteaux restaurant, The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea offers a 'culinary casual' experience with creative island-to-table cuisine. Menus are created around what is readily available from Maui’s farms and fisherman ensuring that each dish is prepared using only the finest local, seasonal and artisanal products; including those grown in the restaurant’s own orchard.

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.

                                              Our 33 wedding anniversary was very special at Hotel Wailea. We were seated at a spectacular ocean view table on the lanai with a lovely breeze. We spent more than we ever have on our dinner, but it was our anniversary! Aloha

                                              It’s a beautiful space but the food was so disappointing. We had the scallops and mahi mahi. The mahi was over salted and the scallops were bland.

                                              Amazing dinner at Hotel Wailea! Everything about it was perfect. Our server, Bryan, was excellent - personable and attentive and gave great advice for the meal and drink choices. I had the Mahi for a main and my husband had the steak - fabulous first courses and dessert as well - all was delicious! The ambiance was perfect - all tables have a view - outdoor seating with just the right music playing. The whole place is a little piece of paradise but also very chill and relaxing. One of the best experiences we have had on Maui - we will definitely be back and keep it on the rotation.

                                              Excellent meal and views at The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea. My better half loved the fixed vegetarian menu, and I enjoyed an inspired 3-course dinner of endive filled with hanpachi, NY strip, and calamansi tart. The NY strip was perfectly seasoned and prepared at medium rare, and the chimichurri sauce and accompanying vegetables were excellent. The sunset view was gorgeous. A great dining experience, and I highly recommend The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea for any special occasion.

                                              I had the 3-course prix fixe menu: Saffron Risotto, Bis Island NY Steak and the Tirmisu. All were excellent. Risotto was creamy and had a nice fish stock worked into it. The steak was perfectly cooked and paired well with the Chimichurri sauce and charred veggies included on the side. And the tiramisu was a nice sweet finish. Our server, Seth, did a great job and steered us towards some great recommendations. He made certain I'd come back to this place again to try some other selections. A+++

                                              The experience was just ok. Food was good- not superb. For what we paid, we feel we did not get excellent value. I’m glad we went, but I won’t book a return trip.

                                              I HIGHLY recommend The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea. Our server Bryan helped us pick out some incredible items from the menu, and he made us feel right at home. The gnocchi and pork rib appetizers are definitely standouts. The view and ambiance of the restaurant are also hard to beat!

                                              I have booked the table two month in advance and I was there a week prior, I requested a lanai table for sunset, I was told note is on file and confirmed, and when we arrived we were told that we can’t have it because it’s all booked VIPs… all the tables were empty since we arrived first… I Mean, these were regular people who were prioritized for whatever reason, maybe because we were an interracial same sex couple… We have come to this restaurant 3 times now and live in the area and this was unpleasant start, thanks to the hostess who decided she can ignore my reservation of 2 months and special request that was put on file… what else could have been done to get the lanai table? It was just rude… everything else was great.

                                              We were sitting at our table for an hour and we had only an app. There had to be a kitchen mess up as when we finally got our app I saw them bring out our dinner and turn around with it. Unfortunately that meant another 30 minutes as they rightly recooked it. However during this time it was like the waiter was afraid to talk to us even to get water refilled. Food was good but not great. Cool hotel so go walk around then go somewhere else for great food and good service.

                                              We thoroughly enjoyed a beautiful view of the ocean from the Birdcage Bar and watching entertaining Love Birds chirping above. We had another beautiful ocean view for dinner. Our waiter was friendly and helpful providing great descriptions of the menu choices. We shared a delicious beet plate, spring green salad (made with the most tender lettuce) and gnocchi in a creamy tomato, mushroom, and sausage sauce for the first course. For the main course we each had 3 huge seared scallops perfectly cooked with mushrooms and parsnips served on a creamy lobster sauce. We shared a kiwi tart (similar to key lime pie) for dessert, which made a perfect ending. We definitely want to return.

                                              Overall, a lovely experience. I felt like the scallops were a little under cooked, though everything was delicious.

                                              The food is excellent! We think this is the most creative menu on Maui and like that the chef changes it up periodically.

                                              Amazing ambience at the Restaurant at Hotel Wailea for our first dinner on our Honeymoon. Definitely recommend a reservation around, or even slightly after, sunset. Great service and excellent food. Pricey but worth the money.

                                              Overall the restaurant was okay. Not very much of a menu choice for or particular taste. Be prepared to pay close to $300.00 or more depending on what you order. Minimum order would be just over $230.00 not including your tip.

                                              We ate out on the garden terrace and it was incredibly romantic. You feel like you are in the treetops looking out at the ocean and other islands. The food was tremendous and our wait staff was terrific—thanks to Ann for such a personable and comfortable experience. The whole team is great and the presentation of the dishes is wonderful.

                                              Excellent food; service could have been a little better (waiter Bryan seemed to pay lots more attention to neighboring tables)
