Food was amazing, but small irritations distracted—such as charging for coffee refills. Pretty petty when you are paying well more than $100 for dinner for two.
We were also very disappointed to not be seated on the outside patio. We made our reservation well in advance and indicated we were celebrating an anniversary. We appeared to be the only party with a reservation seated inside. We came to Kauai to enjoy the weather, not to be singled out for substandard treatment.

It could not have been a better date night. We were sat on the terrace and in addition to the stunning views, the staff was just wonderful. Anais was so friendly and wonderful and really made us feel welcomed. The food was delicious and the crunchy roll should be mandatory. Thank you!

We enjoyed a leisurely evening on the balcony. Tables were well spaced and quiet with a gorgeous view over the Hyatt property and ocean. Inside is "clubbier" but also spacious. There is quite a bar scene. The sashimi and nigiri we ordered were delicious. There are a few special cocktails, but we opted for our own favorites. Not inexpensive but well worth a visit.

WOW! Attentive and intuitive. Lisa was great. Sat at Sushi bar and highly recommend it. Jordan was our chef although all were entertaining. He made personal recommendations and offered suggestions. Loved it! Best sushi on Kauai by far. Baby negatives were a small selection (allows for better quality) and no softshell crab. I'll get over it and I'll be back.

I am so addicted to Stevenson’s that I talk about it and dream about it when not even on island. It is outstanding in every way. Great fish, great sake, great service. My #1 favourite dining spot. Mmmmmmm, fish!

Beautiful view. Excellent service. Great food except for one thing. The menu offers ice cream on the dessert menu. Unbelievably this ice cream is served in Dixie cups. Yes frozen paper cups like you get at a picnic vendor. This is totally unacceptable and actually insulting for a restaurant if this caliber. Had long conversation with manager Michael Hutton about this situation. Third complaint about this.
Otherwise fabulous view fabulous service fabulous food. Totally insulting to bring a Dixie cup with the normally fabulous Kaua`i Lapperts ice cream.

Overall friendly staff, but check your bill carefully!!!! They ran someone else’s check on my card and charged me for stuff I didn’t order. It was fixed with a polite request, and they gave me 15% off for the trouble. But just check your bill. Also the sashimi is cut way too thick!

Bar scene wasn’t a huge draw but the food was good and fish super fresh and dang the view from the balcony (request an outside table) was the ultimate draw. Amazing! But beyond the view I’d say you could really score higher reviews if Maybe some more variety was included to the menu for the non raw fish eaters such as my wife, yes would be appreciated, for as good as mine was it was uncomfortable for her beyond the salad course, to sit and watch me eat. A couple additional cooked items would take the dining experience to a whole new level. Thanks

My husband and I visited Stevenson's on our recent trip to Kauai. We were excited to try sushi on the island and wanted to visit this restaurant to scope it out for our daughter and future-son-in law who will be visiting Hawaii this summer. From the moment we walked into Stevenson's we were charmed. We sat at the bar for a glass of wine before we sat down for dinner. The wine list was varied and interesting. After our wine, we were seated at our table and greeted by our server, John. He was friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us great suggestions and then gave us some time to decide our choices. We aren't the adventurous type when it comes to sushi so we stayed with more conventional choices. We start with Shrimp Tempura for our appetizer. The portion was perfect, as was the dish itself. For our main course, we shared the maki rolls, Spicy Tuna, California Roll, Crunchy, and Cucumber. We were floored. The food was beyond delicious and was so fresh. We enjoyed the Mango martini and the Tiramisushi for dessert. If you are visiting Kauai, Stevenson's is a "must try" dining experience.

Restaurant was beautiful and service attentive but not too much. The sashimi platter was pretty good (selection was limited but was offered was delicious) and the poke bowls were tasty (though expensive for what you got). The fish and prawn salad was mediocre, sadly.

The sushi was fantastic. The baked lobster I can’t remember the full name of it is why we go there. It is amazing. Service was OK I judge it on whether dirty plates get taken off the table before the meal ends and I’d say that didn’t really happen totally, it was OK. And they didn’t ask us if we were kamaiana, so we can get the discount. So that’s a definite minus

My husband & I really enjoyed our dinner at Stephenson's. We are guest at the hotel, and were delighted with the convenience & great service. The sushi was delicious...a Stephenson's roll & a made to order salmon avocado roll. Starter was miso soup, and we finished with tiramisu-sushi roll...outstanding! We look forward to our next meal at this fine establishment.
