    The food and service were terrible! I ordered a martini and so did my husband. He got a full glass because he ordered Bombay gin. I got half a glass because mine was made with another kind of gin and they ran out. Of course, I was charged the full price. We had tables all around us with dirty dishes piled up. In the meantime the manager walks around doing nothing! I asked for bread when he passed by and he actually was annoyed. They are so understaffed but that’s why he should be willing to help. We received the wine we had ordered after we finished our meal. We had to keep asking for it because our server never brought it. The manager finally brought it after we asked repeatedly but again he was totally annoyed! Food was so bland, worst meal we’ve had in Maui in a week. And it was so dark in the parking lot and walkways we were really afraid one of us would fall! Just stay away, you’ll thank us!

    Really great experience tonight at one of our Maui faves. Lovely setting. Food outstanding. The POKE nachos were a standout! The only downside was my rose was warm. I had to add ice to drink it. The restaurant itself tends to be a bit stuffy at sunset. Not enough air moving and it is always a bit uncomfortable until the sun goes down. We were able to sit outside which was a really nice bonus. All and all a solid meal and incredible sunset views.

    We had reservations, but were asked to wait outside in the sun until our table was ready. Not pleasant! Restaurant decor and ambiance was outdated…not much to enjoy as far as eye appeal. We were seated at a corner table with a view of the sunset, which was very nice. I highly recommend making reservations about an hour before sunset at all ocean view restaurants to give you the best odds for a nice table with a view! We ordered salmon and filet mignon for dinner. The salmon was delicious! The filet was tough and not edible…we sent it back for another one and they got it right the second time, but it should not have happened in the first place! The service was so-so…just did not have an upbeat vibe like all the other places we have dined at on this beautiful island. I would NOT recommend this place… go elsewhere!!

    Horrible experience. The server was less than enthusiastic Just horrible attitude. My mom ordered the “special”. The lobster tail was as big as a shrimp. I have never seen anything like it. The place is old and rundown. The only thing it has going for it is the view of Napoli Bay. Won’t be back unfortunately

    Always a beautiful view. Have to say we were disappointed at where we were seated even after making reservations way in advance. Also the hospitality where you check on is very unwelcoming. Mai Tai, cocktails, bartender very good & friendly as was our waiter. Disappointed in the appetizer gnocchi was swimming in the cream sauce.

    Beautiful setting overlooking the beach & ocean. They have their own parking lot and even though the spaces are small, there is no charge, and everyone has a rental car anyway. We had a reservation, and we were hoping for a table outside with the view, but we would have had to wait an hour to sit out there. We sat inside by the bar. Everything is low key, and they had a man on guitar strumming Hawaiian tunes. Every restaurant around Kaanapali is out of decent bottle of Chardonnay. They had a brand that was lower end, but tasted ok. We ordered Mahi-mahi. We really liked it. It was moist and not fishy tasting. It came with rice & broccoli (it was kind of crunchy, but some people like it like that). It had a sauce to accompany on the plate. It was good. We finished our wine, and passed on dessert.

    Great food at pretty good prices considering it’s Maui and everything is expensive. We shared 2 appetizers and a salad, plenty of food for us…no drinks on this night as we just flew in and were tired. Bill was $44.00. Not bad. But we didn’t have a full on meal or drinks so it could have been alot more. Nice ambiance, beautiful sunset views. Will def be back.

    Highly recommend the Sea House Restaurant at Napili Kai Beach Resort. The views are fantastic, service amazing, and the food was perfect. We were fortunate enough to enjoy the sunset from our table looking out over the beautiful ocean, and the final touch……..Amazing Tiramisu for dessert. We were very impressed with the quality of the food, and attentiveness from the staff. We will absolutely be returning.

    Had a lovely honeymoon dinner. View is SPECTACULAR and we were seated right away at our reservation time. Restaurant decor is dated. All the people waiting to be seated and the hostess stand are right in the middle of the view. People standing obstructing the view was highly distracting for me. Our server John is a veteran at this spot and he was lovely and charming and attentive and gruff all at once…they seemed to be low on busboys and John had to clear dishes. Cauliflower wings - AMAZING!! Center Cut Filet -perfectly cooked and delicious Monghong crab crusted - OUTSTANDING

    Our waitress was lovely. The food was just okay. They ran out of some items on the menu that we were hoping to try. Our menus were dirty. The drinks were overly sweet. The inside of the restaurant needs to be updated. Considering its location, it has potential to be great, but it just wasn’t. We were expecting more of a Merriman’s experience.

    Wall to wall windows gave way to a breathtaking beachside sunset view during our meal at the Sea House located in the Napili Kai Resort a short drive from Kaanipali. We both enjoyed the Crispy Crab Crusted Moncgong served in a Lobater Cognac sauce with Molokai Sweet Potatoes. Delicious!! Service great and that view!! Loved it.

    John was fantastic! I was a little irritated that we couldn't sit in the bar beforehand, even with a reservation for dinner... We were told no space while others were allowed to put their name on a waiting list. We weren't giving the option to go on a waiting list for a seat at the bar or to sit in the bar area before dinner.

    This place felt like a “hole in the wall” gem. Small, rustic feel, open air, tucked away in the back of an older hotel, right on the beach of Kapalua Bay with FANTASTIC sunset views. Our server was on top of it but also very laid back and his menu recommendations were spot on. Live Hawaiian style music playing and enjoyed the best Mai tai I’ve ever tasted. We had the pesto crusted monchong with risotto and the sesame wasabi ahi- our server said their tuna melts like butter and he was not lying! The best most tender seared tuna we’ve ever had. The vibe here is laid back with an elevated menu and you just can’t beat the sunset view.

    We had a wonderful dinner celebrating our 25th anniversary at the Sea House. Patty, our server, was simply lovely, very kind and friendly and helpful. Our food was scrumptious. I ordered the seafood trio and my husband got the filet mignon early bird special. We were very happy with everything. We sat on the patio so that we'd have a view of the sunset, and it did not disappoint. Overall a super experience, and we can't wait to go back someday.

    We had been here before and had the best Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi. This time it was absolutely horrible. It was soggy and disgusting as was the underwhelming customer service. It was as if the hostesses didn’t want us to be there. Also, drinking a 13 dollar cocktail out of a plastic cup is embarrassing and not kosher! No thanks. We will be going elsewhere.

    They opened the shades a little too early for the sunset blinding our eyes and the fans were on high overhead so as food was delivered it immediately cooled off which was of significant issue to our husbands. Additionally we had to keep requesting that finished dishes were removed as it was unsightly. Great food, beautiful surroundings

    We stay right down the beach so this is a regular stop. Happy hour is the best view on the island - no exaggeration - and also outstanding service, value and food Lunch is nice. Dinner is the weakest link. Food is good; service is never great. They often seem considerably less than happy to see you. And it is as pricey as many top shelf places.
