Food was great! Lobster dynamite was good, but we ate everything we ordered before we got it, even if it was listed as an appetizer. All the sushi we received was good. Our busser/food runner took care of us more than our waiter. If you take care of the locals, the locals will take care of you. Tip for waiter: treat the locals as you would tourist.

We had a gorgeous view of the resort lagoon and shipwreck Beach from our veranda table. Lots of gluten-free options to choose from on the sushi menu, which was important to one of our group members. There seem to be a lot of confusion, multiple servers bringing dishes to our table that were not meant for us. My husband’s salad was so so, but our sushi dishes were fantastic.

It was a dinner for our honeymoon and we were sat in the bar area with a large group of business people. It was so awkward because we were the only table in there besides the bar people. Food was good and waitress was nice. We received a free dessert for our honeymoon but it wasn’t that great.

Beautiful view and each table has enough distance without too much noise, so it would be also perfect place for business dinner.

Stevenson’s was a great surprise for me. The food was delicious, service was great and the sunset view from the patio is lovely. The atmosphere is hip yet cozy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Kauai.

Gorgeous setting with moonlit ocean views and absolutely killer sushi. Servers need some training as do hostesses. Strange clash of sounds with loud band music emanating from lower level terrace bar.

The chef, waitresses are so nice and frindly.
Food is really good we enjoy there everthing what we had.

Anyways we want to be back again!

This was our second visit to the restaurant while we were on vacation! We went again because the service,quality of the food, and ambiance were amazing. We enjoyed everything so much.I can't say enough about the wonderful staff .Everyone we had the pleasure of meeting were professional and friendly, they exuded genuine hospitality and acknowledged my Husband's Birthday with a lovely dessert. That made me very happy and we will be back.

Overall: Really wanted to like this restaurant, but was disappointed

Pros:
- nice environment for get-together with friends and maybe drinks ( did not use bar)
- excellent service from receptionist waiters, water servers
- only good dish is hamachi collar fish, but it took 2 tries before getting it right
- food came out relatively quick and was served hot
Cons:
- way over-priced even for hotel prices, average 2X of high-end Honolulu restaurants
- overall food quality (sushi, desserts) mediocre-to-average; did not try drinks
- tried to pass on a lump of fish as hamachi collar (also under-cooked), but they got it right (right fish, perfectly cooked) once I pointed out the problem
- very noisy bar. Good for gatherings but not for quiet dinner

This was our first time dining at Stevenson’s and it will be the last. Overpriced sushi and an inattentive wait staff made this a night to forget. The restaurant wasn’t that busy. There were empty tables all around us yet we had to wait almost 15 to 20 minutes for someone to take our drink and food order. Our sushi arrived about an hour later. The sushi was very good but no better than we’ve had elsewhere. We’ve had just as delicious and creative rolls elsewhere for half the price and delivered to our door in that time frame. The waitstaff were not terribly apologetic. There was also a serious mosquito issue, I was eaten alive. I understand mosquitos happen, especially on a tropical island. I mention this so you know that this is an open air restaurant so you may wish to use insect repellent.

The food was outstanding. Loved the lobster dynamite. A bit overpriced but you should know what you're getting into before eating. We did ask a server for more wasabi which never made it but we made it work. The only issue we had was the tiramisushi. Don't get me wrong, it's a good dessert but is not close enough to a tiramisu to deserve the name. It's basically a chocolate cake wrapped around a coffee mousse. Again, good but slightly disappointing.
