We celebrated our wedding and now our first anniversary there at the Grill. Service, food and of course the view are all spectacular. Chris our waiter was top notch and we actually had him wait on us for our honeymoon. Highly recommend Kuai Grill at the ST. Regis hotel.

Great food and excellent service. The dishes were so creative and every bite was incredible. The beef tenderloin was cooked perfectly and the tasting menu was out of this world. Topped off by a wonderful salted Carmel sundae.. I would definitely eat here again..

I must admit, at first glance, we weren’t sure our 3 kids would find something they liked. And they are very restaurant savvy. However, after a little more reading and asking our server a few questions, everyone enjoyed their meal. We will be back!

The food was very good but a little over priced as expected at a resort. Service was okay and they had a decent wine selection. I would probably save my money next time and try out one of the other fine dining restaurants on the island. If you do go, ensure to get there early so you can see the views.

We both ordered the Chef's tasting menu @$140 each. We always have high expectations when doing so because of the name and the price
The first course, a shrimp dish, was delectable. Shrimp were firm, chilled, and had the most amazing dollop of delicious caviar on top. The horseradish sauce on the bottom was fabulous.
Second, seated foie gras on toast with pineapple jelly. Right on target. We both liked it very much.
The next course is what cost them the 5th star. The lobster was a disappointment. It was undercooked which left it slimy inside and it was also stringy, which might be because it was old. I sent mine back for more fire, husband just didn't eat his.
The 4th course was perfection, the tenderloin was very tender, flavorful and perfectly cooked.
Lastly dessert. They brought out both the cheesecake and the caramel Sunday. Both were very good but I just had a little bite of each. Dessert is not my thing.
What was super nice was that because it was my birthday celebration, they sent out complimentary champagne and another dessert. Very classy.
Service was good, no complaints, food came out hot, water kept filled, dishes cleared, all just fine. It could have been perfect except for that pesky lobster!

A very beautiful setting. Best to go at sunset. Modern decor. Food was outstanding. Best salad I’ve ever had. Very expensive. Enteree’s about $50-90. Wine $22 a glass. Service is very good. If price is not a factor, I would highly recommend.

This place is so overpriced and there are only a few tables with a view. Host and wait staff is not up to fine dining standards by a long ways. Choose a drink upstairs and spend your money elsewhere.

Our evening here for my birthday was flawless; engaging wait staff and perfect table to enjoy the sunset.
At the appropriate moment our server, without being asked, escorted us outside to the balcony and took several great photos of us framed by the sunset, mountains, ocean and clouds.
My fiancé’s ribeye was the best, as was my opakapaka.
A wonderful complimentary dessert and excellent champagne concluded our memorable dinner.
Highly recommend!

The view at sunset was unbeatable. Background music was quiet enough to permit easy conversation. Our waiter Sequoia paced our four course tasting with wine pairing to perfection. We initially questioned the pairing of a pinot noir with the lobster course, but the seasoning of the lobster made it work. The food was excellent and the portions ample. We did not go home hungry.

Requested a romantic table when booking and hostess addressed our special occasion when checking in but then proceeded to seat us at the worst table in the place.

Appeared they give preferential treatment to hotel guests, so just beware if not staying there.

Our last night on Kauai we wanted to have a special meal instead of the typical food truck, tiki bar dining. The Kauai grill did not disappoint us! The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. The views are spectacular of the Pacific Ocean and coast line. The sunset was visible this time of year so lots of people got up from their tables to take their pictures out on the terrace. The chef’s preparation of the dishes we ordered was perfect. There was also an amuse bouche and a glass of champagne provided compliments of the chef. I had the surf and turf done perfectly. My husband had the local fresh catch and really enjoyed the preparation too. The seating allows for private conversation. Definitely will go back!

Staff were extremely friendly and made us feel very special on our anniversary. They went the extra mile to celebrate the special occasion, but also to wish my wife a happy birthday as well. The food was just as amazing. We had the chef's tasting menu and it was honestly one of the best all around meals we have ever had. Thank you!

Amazing views and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, Service and Food Quality were below expectations. We had the 3 course menu. Starters however, arrived before we had our first round of drinks (which we ordered only 15min after we had sat down...). Main course (fish and beef) were alright. Dessert (ice cream) was a nogo. Overall it was not great experience. There is better places with better food and service in or near Hanalei. I would recommend taking a sundowner at the St. Regis bar and to have dinner somewhere else.

Beautiful place but very warm sitting by the windows to see the spectacular sunset view. This restaurant needs shades to filter the sun. Music at times was way to aggressive for this high end atmosphere. Signature dish was the Maui Maui and it was over cooked.
