Panna cotta was great, the Ossobucco with Risotto was good but not special. The catch of the day was very dry, served on a green salad without any dressing. The Manager apologized and the catch of the day was for free. The problem was solved to our 100% satisfaction. However, we expected a cuisine with more Esprit.

My family and I thought Beach Tree was extremely overrated.The food was marginal.There were 5 of us and 3 had the special snapper fish. It was dry with very little taste.
Our server had zero personality and was robotic like in her actions.
Pricing was way too much for the quality of the food.
We were very disappointed and would not only not go back,but negatively recommend to others.

This is one of the best burgers I have ever had. The 3-year-aged-cheddar literally made me stop and say "wow". The Quattro Formaggi Neapolitan Pizza had a good flavor pallete, but was too thin and crispy for my liking. The atmosphere was incredible and definitely a place to go during sunset. Make your reservations ahead of time and ask for a table closest to the water - you will not be disappointed.

Service was extremely slow. We felt the restaurant was very understaffed...not enjoyable since it is not an inexpensive place to dine. Birthday dessert was pre-ordered at the time of the reservation - took so long to arrive (frozen lemon pie), we wondered if it had to be baked! One of our friend's pizza arrived COLD while my dinner was piping hot.

Second trip to Beach Tree, the first being a year ago. Food was much better prepared the first time. Overcooked fish, overcooked burger, just nothing impressive this time. I’d say it was overpriced, but so is every other touristy restaurant on the island.

The pizza was good, but the lasagna for two was really bad (gross even) with greasy meat and thick cheese making up almost all of it. I don't know why it would even be on the menu of an apparently good quality restaurant like this. It left us disappointed.

Disappointed. If you are on a date, go to Ulu’s. For families, this is the right setting, but the price to quality ratio is poor. Beach Tree is not sure what it wants to be. I recommend stripping the menu down to gourmet pizza, sandwiches, burgers, and bar fare. Service was enthusiastic, but unrefined and slow, too stretched over too many tables. Also, they have a serious bird problem.

Taylor, our server, was exceptional and had the perfect balance of being accessible when needed and letting the four of us enjoy the great food, spirits and ocean front location. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversaries and Taylor surprised us with two extraordinary desserts that were heavenly. After we expressed a desire to try to make one of the dishes once we returned home, she even shared the chef’s recipe via email. The entire experience couldn’t have been better. The Beach Tree will be on our short list on our return visits. Mahalo Taylor and the entire team at the Beach Tree. We felt the aloha.....

We've eaten at the Beach Tree three years in a row for my wife's birthday. It's a beautiful place. The past two years they have brought out a special dessert for her birthday and this year they didn't, but that's OK. I don't expect every visit to be perfect, but at $250 for two they should come close. My pasta was delicious but could have been hotter, and my wife just didn't love her Ono, had to ask for some lemon to give it more flavor. The location is stellar, just gorgeous, and the service is usually impeccable. Our server hastily cleared another table under the roof when it started to rain. Good for her. We'll probably return but we are slightly less enthusiastic about it I think. (Not that they care that much I suppose, we don't stay at the hotel.) Another thing: there was a wedding party at the hotel and I think a lot of them were at the restaurant. Their little kids were running around on the lawn in front, which was fine and fun. But when the kids started running around among the tables, the parents should have shooed them away. And when the parent's didn't, management should have said something to them.

Came early to have a drink and watch the sunset. Ordered a Macallan 12. When we got the bill it was for a Macallan 15 and was $35. I know prices are higher for drinks in Hawaii, but really? $35? So don’t give someone a higher priced drink without asking if that is okay first. The highest I have ever paid for a Macallan 12 was $20 at Pebble Beach and it was a double. The food was fantastic and the service exemplary. But even a basic vodka cranberry was still $15. I guess that’s what you get when you dine at a resort where the rooms start at $1000 a night. Anyone who can afford that probably doesn’t care how much their drink costs. We found drink costs at decent dinner restaurants around the island to be high, usually like $14 for a Mai Tai, unless you hit happy hour. Even in over priced Seattle, they don’t cost that much. I guess you are captive while on the island.

Seafood was fresh and delicious, steaks were perfectly prepared, good wine choices. Don’t miss this great dining experience.
