Red Salt at Ko’a Kea Resort
Great food and great service, all four of our party loved this dinner
We are here for our baby moon. It was really nice that they had a decent non alcoholic mocktail. The food was amazing as well. Very nice attentive staff. Loved it. I’d come back. I told some people to try it.
Delicious scallops for an appetizer and wonderful meals (mahi and pork chops). The coffee and dessert were disappointing.
Fish was raw, sent back, and not fully cooked again. Service and ambiance were great
Absolutely blown away from how amazing the food was. The drinks, oh my gosh, we’re amazing! The Shark Proof was fantastic and the Mai Tai blew me away!
My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner. The waitstaff was prompt and very polite. We look forward to our next dinner at Red Salt
Decent dinner- service was impeccable!
My husband and I went here for a very nice date night. The restaurant was small and quaint with an ocean view. The food was fabulous. Both had the Lobster gnocchi and the Red Salt Cake. Yum! Not a lot of food for the price...but well worth it and definitely enough if you have a salad too. A great date night
AMAZING! would definitely go back there again. Great service and Views
Always perfect from service to food. The best restaurant in Kaua’i IMO.
The quality of the food preparation, carefully sourced ingredients and beautiful menu choices makes this the best restaurant on the island. If you are vegan there is also a separate carefully thought out menu that rivals some of the best vegan chefs in Las Vegas. This restaurant is outstanding.
It was an amazing experience, the personnel including manager are extremely kind and friendly, just natural. The restaurant is not too big so the ambiance is reminding me of a nice restaurant in Paris - France, very romantic.
Food is really good and tasty, not too big but just the right size so you can have a dessert as well. The Vine list will give you a good choice of domestic and international high-quality Vine choice. I would give them seven stars overall but obviously, five is max :) My wife and I had a very romantic dinner and we will be back.
Mmmmm very tasty
We loved our dinner. I got the lobster gnocchi and my husband got the ahi tuna risotto dish. Chris was our waiter and he was amazing and genuinely sweet.
Lovely food and atmosphere ! We both had the chefs tasting menu and would highly recommend. Our server Chris was wonderful too . Hope to come back !
Our server was awesome. Food was great.
Red Salt exceeded our expectations. From the service to wine selections to our dinner entrees everything was prepared beautifully and the flavors were amazing. We had the tomato and kale salads with the scallop appetizer (sooo good) and butterfish (melts in your mouth). Try this place out—guaranteed not to disappoint.
Outstanding wine from the owner’s own Napa vineyard
Both waiters (went twice on a 6 day vaca) were very attentive
Expensive and worth it
You can’t go wrong here. A little expensive but worth it.
It was great; good, ambiance, service and the food.
Read great reviews but the food wasn’t good at all. It’s sad when you spend $300 for 4 people and the best part of dinner was the bread. Everything was pretty bland.
It was very good but honestly everything is extremely overpriced for what it is. As much as I enjoyed the meal the service and ambiance does not match the ridiculous prices.
Great service and a delicious meal. The short ribs and miso butterfish were superb. They have a good Wine list at reasonable prices. Very professional service and fine dining.
Everything was amazing! Service was great. Would highly recommend
Service & food were amazing! Would highly recommend! I had the vanilla mahi- it was so fresh and light. My husband loved the red salt burger. Definitely worth checking out even if you aren’t staying st the Ko’a Kea resort!
A gem of a find - Red Salt has quickly become a favourite of ours. Creative and delicious cuisine by a chef who really knows their produce. Outstanding cocktails, and some of the best service we’ve experienced. And that burger!!!
Amazing dinner! So much yummy food. Tomato salad, curry stew, ahi, all delicious. I tasted the best mash potatoes I’ve ever had! My daughter doesn’t even like potatoes and loved them!
We have been here many times and visited pretty much every good restaurant out here and this is the best by far. Doesn't get any better!
Our meals here were wonderful. It was a wonderful evening
This was one of the best meals I have had. Both my Husband and I’s dishes were amazing. I had the filet mignon and he had the tasting menu with the lobster gnocchi. Truly one of the best meals we have had.
The food and plating was Spectacular!!!
This is our absolute favorite restaurant on Kauai. The food/menu and quality is not surpassed here and there are a lot of good restaurants. This is a standout for us and we eat here multiple times while on vacation. It’s a very special place to our family.
In the 10 years since it's opening, Red Salt has remained one of our favorites. The blend of local fresh fish with creative ingredients is why we are always happy to return. The mushroom bisque is delicious and Red Salt is the only highly rated restaurant in the Poipu area serving seared scallops. The forbidden rice is always perfectly prepared with a delicious sauce. Looking forward to returning again.
The Kauai shrimp pasta, and short ribs were fabulous! Be sure to say yes to bread with butter and red salt. The GM was present, graciously doting and service oriented. I love this place. Thank you!
We were prepared for the high prices but our expectations were not met in some other areas. The food was mediocre. The tasting menu serving was a smaller portion than the regular serving. The lobster gnocchi was tasteless. The butter fish was tasty but note that it is spicy. The filet mignon was cooked as ordered and adequately flavored. The soft shell crab appetizer was good. The loudness is overbearing. It’s almost easier to hear the conversations at other tables than at your own. The highlight was the service. Chris was attentive and accommodating.
We had an amazing experience! The service was top notch- everyone was very accommodating, kind, and happy. They made an effort to get to know us and ensure our dining experience was exceptional.
We started with the ahi special appetizer which was good. Moved onto salads, my wife had the kale and I had the tomato salad, again both were really good. For main course my wife had the butterfish and I had the mahi. Again both were prepared perfectly. Desserts were the chocolate mousse and the Red Salt cake. Our server Chris was very helpful and attentive. Overall a wonderful dinner.
We stayed at the Ko’a Kea hotel, it was five star all the way. The pool food was top notch. Service staff was great. Hotel was clean and friendly. We expected the same from the restaurant for dinner and were underwhelmed and overpaid. Wait staff was not friendly, Ok but was too expensive for the basic menu. My husbands meal came 15 mins after everyone else’s and the burger was over cooked. It was provided complementary due to the wait, but was not what we’d expected after other reviews. They do not serve sushi on sundays and mondays.
The food is consistently good; we try to hit this once a month. The service (Eric) was friendly, informative, and efficient. The "lobby feel" can be a bit sterile, but stay focused on the food and service and you won't be disappointed!
Red Salt has been our favorite restaurant on Kauai for a number of years now. I’m happy to say it remains so. Food and drinks are excellent, reasonable wine list, great friendly service. We will have dinner there again before returning home.
