Other than the too salty tuna tartare, everything was amazing! Lobster linguine cooked to perfection and short rib risotto was fabulous!

This is Roy’s reimagined. Eaten at Roy’s on the mainland and here on the islands. Literally last week in Maui. This took his traditional dishes ( and a few new ones) and reinvigorated the presentation and preparation. Great Job!!

We discovered the Table at Poipu last year so it was an easy decision to visit again on our return to Kauai. My spouse started with a pear infused cocktail which was very refreshing. Their bartender knows what she is doing. We skipped appetizers and chose two ahi entrees. The blackened ahi from the regular menu was seared perfectly. The special, a baked ahi with crab, was also perfectly cooked with a nice and not overwhelming glaze. And the green beans which came with it were amazing (my spouse who isn’t a green bean fan loved them). We finished with a shared dessert of haupia pudding. It was served in four small cookie shells with lots of fresh whipped cream and blueberries and strawberries - A unique presentation of what otherwise might be a bland confection. Our server, Angie, was pleasantly engaging, professional, unobtrusive. All in all a lovely choice for dinner. We will definitely be back at our next visit to the island.
