Good food. Good service. Great view. Meal and wine was $600 for two people.
The service at The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea was exceptional! Very friendly and helpful and made us feel very comfortable. Gorgeous view of sunset.
Excellent service, food was delicious, location resulted in a beautiful sunset view, going during restaurant week was a huge plus as well.
We were told when they confirmed that patio seating with beautiful sunset was on first come basis. We arrived for our anniversary dinner and they gave us a back table facing a wall. There were several tables on the patio for 2 and 4 people that did not get filled for the next 2 hours. The young girl would not give us a nicer table so for that reason we are never going back. The food was good but the prices are expensive. The server was rushed and OK but not great. For sure it’s a 2.5 and not a 4.75 especially where they seated us on our 38th anniversary.
Amazing. From the start to finish. I would highly recommend the mushroom truffle risotto and the scallops. And the miso chocolate cake. But whatever you have, you can’t go wrong
The ambiance was so romantic, food and service was exceptional (Thanks Kristen)!!!
We dined here for our wedding dinner and had an amazing time! Food was excellent and the service was perfect! Thank you Kristin for making our dinner so special!
$48.00 for four small scallops that were cold in the middle...Lamb shank was good to many bone splinters..
Outstanding all around! We will definitely be back!
Best high end restaurant in south Maui. Consistently great god and service with an innovative menu
Clearly a high-end gem. Intimate setting away from the large hotels and hustle of other Wailea spots in shopping complexes. The food is a bit "precious." Small plates of amazing combinations that are both tasty and works of art. The risotto is perfectly flavorful without being too rich and starchy. The waygu short rib is prepared wonderfully with potato puree and french green beans. But, the stars of the entire menu were the carrots. When I can write a rave review about a side dish, it means you should make sure you try them. You may never think of carrots the same way again. This is a special place if you have a special occasion. In this case, my birthday, for which the waiter brought me a chocolate dessert that was a wonderful treat.
For people with long memories, there was a nice Italian restaurant in this location many years ago. Then there was Capische, which was considered a top place in the area. Now, these guys have gone one step further and have earned their place among the best restaurants we've eaten at anywhere.
Such a special night. Our server Darin was amazing and so was the rest of the staff. Thank you to Sara and Eric for making our time at hotel Wailea so special.
Wow-this place is incredible! Are here our first night in Maui and maybe set the bar too high? The service was outstanding, the dishes were flavorful and the scenery is breathtaking. Complementary half pour Prosecco was a nice touch & the value compared to other places was top notch.
Exceptional. Great food, service, ambiance and view. We will be back. Moderately priced, food was excellent
What a special meal and location. Food and service were too notch. Expensive but worth it for the experience!
The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea is welcoming, has a lovely atmosphere, and great table service. However, even though the food presentation was nicely done, both our dinners seemed rather bland without much flavor, and honestly the lobster prepared for my husband was overdone and quite a disappointment. It’s quite unlikely we will return anytime soon.
This was our 25th anniversary dinner vacation and our "first" visit to The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea ! A three star rating for the experience on a scale of 0 to 3. Thanks so much for making it a special evening on 10/22/2019. The service and menu were outstanding. And the staff made it great!
Ian made our evening memorable and the food was delightful!
It was an experience eating at the restaurant. Very professional and kind. Would recommend
Risotto as good as ever. Market catch-fish delicious, not as heavy as other big meals here in Wailea resort restaurants...so room for the great staters.
Amazing food, views and service
It was our first time dining at the restaurant. It was a wonderful experience for us. We used to live in Maui and our favorite restaurant then was Le Gunji, which was part of the original Diamond Resort, now Hotel Wailea. Glad to say this restaurant has now become our favorite and we will continue to return to it whenever on Maui. Returning to Maui often, we have found a decline in the quality and service in most of the restaurant, so its refreshing to find this little gem.

Delicious meal! Chris and Dylan provided ex Ellen ser ice! Highly re ommend!
Booked three months ahead for romantic Babymoon/Anniversary dinner and then got stuck in terrible traffic. I called and they said it was fine, but then they didn't save us a good table with the romantic view which was the whole point of booking this special atmosphere for our Anniversary. The attitude of the Matire D was very blazè and didn't help matters. As an anniversary treat they brought us two glasses of prosecco- which would be a nice gesture if they weren't ignoring half of the info of the booking (pregnant, can't drink). Menu was disappointing as only one protein of all the main courses was locally sourced. (The Local Fish of the day). All their "favorite" entrees such as the scallops or crab spaghetti was using fish from way away places. "alaska, maine, etc". I liked my mocktail in a fancy tiki glass, but none of the food really blew me away. True, I was not in the best of spirits because of missing the sunset and the good table, but great food would have cheered me up and it just wasn't great. I didn't finish my crab pasta and I wasn't super impressed with husband's local fish or their "famous" truffle risotto. The molten cake with banana ice cream was my favorite element other than the "bites" which were like amuse bouches that aren't complimentary. It was the most expensive meal of our weeklong trip but one of the least delicious. Overall, I picked the wrong restaurant for the occasion. Luckily we had great meals elsewhere with better service, just not on our literal anniversary. I would pick a different restaurant for your special meal.
Beautiful sunset and delicious food. Everything was amazing!!
Beautiful restaurant with ocean and sunset views. One of our most delicious meals in Maui. Expensive but service and food quality make it worth the price. Tomato and burrata appetizer and Wagyu and lobster entrees were absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!
Amazing atmosphere, dinner and service!
Yummy; gourmet meal. Great idea for a special occasion.
Very special experience! Loved our romantic dinner!
One of the best restaurants in WAILEA. We enjoyed the salmon and diver scallops. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff superb. This restaurant should be on your vacation list.
The Restaurant is not to be missed. The service is warm and attentive, but not overbearing or intrusive. The food is spectacular. We started with the mini tuna crackers. Essentially tuna tartare on black rice crips. The tuna was fresh and the flavor light and delicious. Then we shared the hamachi crude and gazpacho with lobster. Both stellar. The gazpacho was fresh, light, slightly tangy and delicious. The hamachi was four generous slices with the most delicious sauce. My husband and I both got the fish special - a white fish that had been steeped in a broth with so many delicious flavors - think Thai flavors. We also got a side of the roasted carrots with chimmichurri and the roasted cauliflower. Both were so spectacular!! We had been here when it was Capische, and then soon after it changed to The Restaurant. There was definitely a hiccup for a few months after it changed, but that is NO longer the case!! This may be my new favorite place in Maui!! Truly a memorable and delicious experience!!
Excellent! The food and service was superb. Highly recommend this place!
What an amazing meal and experience. We arrived to a beautiful setting. So well designed. We were early and ordered at the bar. The Bartender was warm and friendly and made suggestions. I overheard him tell the lady at my right he could make her anything if she had any idea of what was in a drink she had elsewhere.
We came to Maui to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had reservations at a different location and had to move them to another night so we spent the actual date at The Restaurant.
My husband ordered Truffle Risotto. I ordered Burrata and Tomato Salad. The risotto was the best we've ever tasted. The salad amazing with a variety tomatoes and the creamiest Burrata ever. The herbs gave it the perfect accompaniment. For our main courses we had duck and scallops. Perfect food. Well prepared. I think they are very creative and deserve at least a Michelin star or two
Kristin and Ian were outstanding. We had a fabulous meal and a beautiful setting.
Great food, service, and ambiance.
This has to be the BEST restaurant in Maui!
A lot of a restaurant experience is contextual and we had a terrific table on the edge the balcony and we were blessed with a beautiful sunset. The food and service were also terrific. The food is geared more toward foodies. The preparations are unique and the portions are not huge. But we enjoyed the opportunity to taste a variety of different delicious appetizers and entrees without feeling stuffed.
We celebrated our anniversary dinner here and it was perfect. The atmosphere is gorgeous, the staff was so friendly and prompt, and the food was beyond amazing. It was a special spot for our celebration.
