While I would recommend this restaurant because of the beautiful setting and view, I would not rush back. It is very expensive and the food was just ok. I think you expect a better quality meal for the higher prices. My crab spaghetti was very mediocre and had very little crab in it, if any at all. Too bad as it should have been outstanding!

Perfect end to a month long visit to Maui. Setting is amazing and we were treated to an extended, beautiful sunset. Service was excellent and the food was one of those meals that is enjoyed slowly. Perfect

I can’t say enough about this restaurant. Stellar Food, Service, View I could go on and on. But the food is what we went for and we just couldn’t believe how everything was prepared to perfection. No other like it on Maui.
I highly recommend “The Restaurant” at the Hotel Wailea
We will surely be regular customers.

Food and Service were top notch! However where we were seated lacked. It was our wedding anniversary meal and I had researched, planned and reserved a table 2weeks in advance stating that this was a special meal. I guess I had higher expectations of maybe a table versus a booth. Being seated at said booth was uncomfortable being in a suit, my wife in a evening dress and also the family of 4 with a SPASTIC 6yr old being seated right next to us was quite distracting for our special night. And why was it that at an all adult resort would kids be allowed in the restaurant??? Patricia and Ben our servers were very attentive. The food was cooked perfectly and was very delicious. We drove an hour from Kaanapali for this meal. When I spend $300+ on a meal I expect perfection and the seating was unacceptable in my book

We returned to the Hotel Wailea because we loved the attention to detail in food presentation and service. However, on Monday the rhythm of service seemed off, and the dishes, though good, seemed less spectacular: the potato purée with carmelized onions came cold and without carmelized onions. Perhaps the chef was off or had an off night. We hope to return again.

Amazing restaurant. The setting is outstanding, food incredible, and service second to none.
Seared ahi was the best tuna I’ve ever had (and we ate A TON in Hawaii!), octopus appetizer was great, and the lamb was mind blowing. I’d highly recommend this spot to anyone looking for a quiet and incredible evening which in Maui. Pro tip - reserve a table during the sunset hours. You’ll pay for it buts it’s an unforgettable experience and was a fantastic way to end our trip to the island.

This is one of the best restaurants in Maui. It can be comparable to Mama's fish house.
But the aspect is different. If you are hungry, it might not satisfy your stomach. We, two adults, ordered two appetizers and two entrees and their volume is smaller than the one appetizer and two entrees in Mama. But the taste is fantastic. The environment is cozy and comfort and I felt it is better than Mama.
If you want to go to the best restaurant in Maui, it should be not skipped.

I would recommend this place only on a non windy night and a beautiful sunset night otherwise not sure It’s worth it .
They got alittle irritated when we wanted to move
There is no Protection from wind - paying high prices and nice ambiance you dont want to be freezing .
Brought friends this time and they thought the severs were a little snooty .
