To say that our dining experience was anything short of amazing would be a lie! Everyone that walked by our table, either front of the house or back of the house, attended our every need and made sure we wanted for nothing without asking. The food was gourmets, even for a couple of self proclaimed foodies, as we like to the of ourselves. We ordered 7 appetizers instead of the normal 1 appetizer and two entrees. We were not disappointed. Our dessert was fantastic, chocolate molten lava cake. We can say that we thoroughly, thoroughly loved our night. :)

Not only beautiful location offering magnificent sunset vies, the service was spot on and the food...excellent. From lovely cocktail offerings to an excellent wine list, entrees and desserts.

We tried the truffle risotto, probably the best we’d had, the tuna bites were excellent, the king crab pasta and the fish of the day matched Mamma’s.

When we return to Maui, The Restaurant at Hotel Wailea will definitely be on our list! Btw: a stay at the Hotel is amazing if you want beauty, top level service and lovely suites!

What an incredible experience! We had the pleasure of dining here several nights of our trip to Maui and each time was better than the last. Management and the servers, both Christopher and Benjamin, made every meal special, remembered the special occasions we were celebrating and truly went above an beyond. Highly recommend!

We opted for a total seafood dining experience - torched ahi on brioche and hamachi tataki starters, scallops and the steamed local fish for entrees. Dessert was chocolate lava cake! Yum!! Service was exemplary from Christopher. Would dine there again and again!!

Unexpected excellent experience. We picked this restaurant on open table because it was close to our hotel and had food reviews. It was incredible! We loved the ambience of the hotel lobby and wanted to come back sometime. The restaurant has gorgeous views of the ocean and Molokini and they rolled the sun blocking shades up at sunset for an even more incredible view. Our service was great and our waiter answered all of our questions. Water glasses always full and great explanations of the food. The ‘snacks’ were perfect! And I cannot day enough about our food. My one son and I had the lobster which was delicious. My other son proclaimed the scallops he had the best ever and my husband’s lamb was an unbelievable combination. Desserts were also great. Such a great find!

The food tasted great- we chose scallops and salmon. Even though the food was spectacular tasting it was similar to most of the offerings in the area- nothing overly original unfortunately. It would have been nice to see something other than a mac nut crusted protein which we see on every menu in Wailea (just as an example). We were also sat next to a hive of bees so we had to ask to be moved. They were only hunny bees but it was a little startling to be talking to my spouse while bees swirl in and out of the coversation. When we asked to move we were put at a table in the back row of the restaurant with a lesser view when other tables were available with a view. It was as if we were being punished for requesting a change due to a building defect that should have been managed and repaired before the bees decided to create a home. Overall, the food tasted good but we wouldn't dine here again despite staying at the hotel.

We ordered appetizers and shared an entree, as is our M.O. Our choices included a shrimp shumai appetizer, made with green (spinach?) wrapper dough that thoroughly appealed to my dining mate; he was quite surprised at the presentation and taste. Our next orders were tomatoes with burrata, also a pleasant surprise to mate who doesn't like that cheese. And finally foie gras on toast, just enough for a few bites for each of us. Our entree was local kampachi, yellowtail, steamed over veggies. Perfect for us to share. They have a good selection of wines so we were able to choose a pinot noir from Oregon that we haven't tried before -- delicious. A macadamia nut soufflé rounded out the meal, again shared, along with after dinner drinks. They had grappa, not easy to find anywhere.
We would certainly recommend this spot to Maui visitors.

Amazing! I have been a chef for over fifteen years and have eaten all over the world. The range of flavors and creativity from the chefs here are phenomenal! The dishes were light and refreshing so even after many plates I still felt great! Beautiful plating and quality local ingredients-classic technique with local flavor twists. The standouts to my wife and I were the Hamachi tataki, foie gras with pistachio, and the duck breast. The opening “snacks” and the pavlova were excellent as well! The service was kind and the sunset from the lanai was beautiful! Mahalos!
