Very fresh sushi and sashimi. Sashimi could be sliced a little thinner. Service was attentive. Excellent price for the product. Chef came out to check on my wife’s dietary requirements which was great/

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

Loved the food and atmosphere. Service could have been better, as we waited quite a bit for our server to attend to us during our dinner. Other than that we loved it.

Always a good experience. Lisa is normally our server, but we were seated outside of her area. Our server mentioned that Lisa told her we have been in before. Good to be recognized. Speaks highly of the staff and particularly of Lisa. The Lobster Dynamite certainly lives up to its name. Awesome.

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.

Stevensons has the best sushi on the Southside and even Kauai. The fish is so fresh it melts in your mouth, the rolls are filled with flavor and of course the setting is gorgeous.

Living on the island for over 39 years, this is my first time to Stevensons. With the encouragement of my now 30 something year old kids, we went there for dinner and it was fabulous. The sushi was great, the lobster dish was very tasty. I would definitely come back again. The view was to die for!

We experienced terrible service. We specifically noted on our reservation that we were celebrating a 50th birthday - first of all, there was no recognition of this. Second, after ordering over $200 worth of food, our server FORGOT to enter in our entree orders. We were waiting for OVER 45 minutes, until our server came around and asked if we wanted the check - we had not received the food, and she was surprised and went to the sushi station and PLACED the order right then. Seriously? Other tables, while we were waiting for our main course, had arrived, eaten, and had dessert by the time we got our 4 sushi rolls. This was incredibly disappointing and there was no apology from our server. Highly dissatisfied with our experience and the restaurant made no effort to account for this. I can deal with waiting 20-30 minutes for food, but 45 minutes for sushi? And the sushi itself was prepared hurriedly and messily, obviously.
