RumFire Poipu Kauai Ratings and Reviews
Made last minute reservation for our last night on the island of Kauai. Great table (semi-circle) by the windows so we could watch the sunset. We had 2 different servers but both were exceptional, making recommendations after asking questions about preferences. One person had a food allergy and made recommendations for that person as well. Everything was great, ordered an appetizer, 2 handcrafted cocktails, 4 dinners and 3 desserts. Highly recommend for location, service, cocktails, dinner and dessert.
Quite the surprise. We were attracted to Rum Fire because of the great view which is spectacular. The meal was delicious, and the craft cocktails were the big surprise. A great evening. If you get a chance participate in one of the bartender bracket competitions. Very fun!
I'm on island to celebrate my BD and had an amazing experience at Kauai RumFire. The menu and atmosphere is very different from the Waikiki location but I thoroughly enjoyed everything from the drinks to the service to the view. They even gave me a complimentary Lobster since they forgot to prepare it.
Oddly enough I think my favorite part was the popcorn and pretzel mix they give you in lieu of bread!
RumFire is fine for food and service. The BIG DOWNSIDE is the stupid location of the restrooms. Our party included an elderly diner and a handicapped person. The l-o-n-g trek to the restrooms is really unacceptable and will give us pause about patronizing RumFire in the future.
This restaurant had it all. Very classy and beautiful ambiance. Server was very knowledgable and took time to explain the dishes. Very personable. The food was amazing!! Get the catch of the day! You won't be disappointed. And watching the waves crash on the beach with the sun setting made it a perfect dinner.
This was the best service ever. Joshua is fantastic. He is very knowledgeable about food in general and knew everything about the food and beverage at Rum fire. He is obviously very passionate about his job and what he does and it really shows. The service is restaurants in Hawaii is really great. Everybody is very nice. But, Joshua takes his job to another level. He really cares about the restaurant and that we appreciated the food. If all of us approached our jobs and life like that we would be better at what we did and more fulfilled. What an enjoyable evening! It was our last day in Hawaii and that made it even more special!!
I booked this through Open Table and had no problems. We've been here before many times and it never disappoints. Servers Rose & Josh make you feel so special and are so polite and friendly. Music by Chico Edralin provides beautiful ambience for the evening.
This restaurant is not only charming but the service was excellent. Tidepools is one of a few restaurants at the Hyatt on Kauai. Although the hotel is huge the restaurant is very quite with each table being very private and overlooking the koi pond that surrounds the restaurant. The food was excellent. Although we had fish dishes the menus had an assortment of other entries. I would very much recommend.
We had an early reservation, and few tables were occupied. The hostess steered us opposite the sunset side of the restaurant to the worst table in the restaurant. When we objected, she went to check on another table. We again had to ask for a table by a window, even though some of them were not used the entire time we were there. This was our only negative the entire evening. I would definitely return. The views are lovely. People were lining up outside to see the sunset. I would rather have warm bread than spiced popcorn. We easily shared a romaine salad that was crisp and delicious. My husband's pork chop was out of this world. My monchong was perfectly prepared, with a crab crust and creamy sauce. Portions were generous.
We read good things about this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Perfect evening. The view is amazing, The Italian waiter we had was very knowledgable, friendly and attentive. Fish dinner and desert were excellent. We went on Wednesday and bottles of wine were 50% discounted so that was a nice surprise. Nice touch with French press coffee. We will definitely return on our next visit. Overall, this was our best dinner experience out of a lot of very good restaurants. A new favorite.
Great food and fantastic service made this a night to remember. The stylish decor and the setting are eye catching even after the sun sets as the 'fires' are lit and add great ambiance. This was our first time eating at RumFire but definitely not our last. The risotto scallops and the poke were the hits of the table. The only complaint from our group is that the washrooms are located outside the restaurant a (very) short walk away. Irrelevant to me and should not take away from the experience.
We had a reservation that we had to wait for while the restaurant was empty, than we were seated in the back of restaurant in these odd tables that were like for the kids section that felt completely separated from the rest of the restaurant. Since I could see several empty tables we asked to be moved to sit in the actual restaurant but were told no, there were no available tables. Funny how people with reservations after us were seated in some of those open tables while others remained open until we left. And the food was the most tasteless we had while on the island and rather expensive for what you received. The server was responsive and did a good job but should have listened to our valets at our hotel – they said it was a hit or miss p
Located at the Sheraton in Kauai has its advantages. The view of the beach and the sunsets are spectacular, and the service was just as wonderful as the food. I had the opportunity to dine here over several days while working on the island and never had anything but stellar service and impeccably prepared meals. Have the Prime Rib or the daily special which is sure to be a locally caught fish. Request a booth facing the open windows to the west and enjoy watching the sun as it sets in the blue Pacific while sipping on your favorate wine or cocktail. Valet parking is free when dining, but be sure to enjoy sitting by the fire outside and catching that last glimpse of daylight.
Beautiful setting with the waves of Poipu Beach lapping outside the windows. Start with a RumFire Mango Mojito or wine from their huge selection. The sea scallops with edamame risotto were the best I've had on the island. The Mahi Mahi was cooked to perfection, with a lemon-chardonnay sauce. I will certainly go back to try other dishes on the menu, or have the catch of the day.
The service really detracted from what would otherwise be a great restaurant experience -- but it was not the fault of the server. We ordered appetizers which did not come, and the main course arrived soon after the drinks were served. Then we were pretty well left alone. But,and this is the point, she was pouring water and clearing plates, plus her territory seemed quite extensive. I consider this to be a failure of management, not the individual server. Penny saved, pound foolish
