Great service with a menu that is not overwhelmingly large. Everything was worth ordering.

This is great place for fresh sushi (nigiri, maki, rolls and sashimi), along with a number of creative dishes like their lobster dynamite, which I highly recommend. The alcohol selection is also very impressive for the island, one of the best I have seen, no question. They make great cocktails. The ambience is very fun and romantic. The service is also impressive. Our waiter, Jonny, took incredible care of us and was a really fun person to be around. Before coming, we had mentioned that we were on our honeymoon and they put us on the terrace, overlooking the ocean. Best seat in the house! Highly recommend this for family, gathering of friends or for a more romantic occasion.

Stevenson’s never lets us down!

Our waiter was Johnny! He did such an amazing job even though they had a couple workers that called out. He was prompt and fast with our service & always made sure we had a drink in our hand. :)

Service with a smile :)

I know everyone has been working extra hard since we opened back up to tourism, but everyone at Stevenson’s has always had professional and speedy service as always!

Thank you everyone in food & beverage! You guys rock! Keep up the great work!

We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our server, Lisa, was polite and professional, very informative and made great recommendations. The sushi was amazing. The ingredients were chosen wisely to highlight the fish. There was very little use of heavy sauces and unnecessary garnishes (which can sometimes overpower the sushi). They were extremely conscientious regarding a food allergy and made sure to put us at ease by explaining their process of preparing the meal in a way that would minimize allergen exposure. The waitstaff worked together seamlessly. Our water glasses were topped off often and they cleared dirty dishes from the table so promptly. We were very pleased with the whole experience and would absolutely go here again the next time we make it to Kauai.

The fish was excellent and fresh and the kids Bento was a hit for my 6yo and 8yo who are usually used to “krab” and loved the way they prepared the real deal.

Ambiance could be a little better as we felt we were in the middle of a dining hall of sorts. But still got the ocean view.

Everything we ordered was amazing. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was great! I really liked when the food server/runner pointed out the names of the food when it was brought too our table so we weren’t guessing..we will for sure be back to enjoy the amazing sushi and service.. We are from the Wailua area so it was a nice drive down to the South side..

Stevenson’s has excellent food and drinks, but it’s expensive. The bartenders, Eden & Fae, are both super-friendly and service is very good. It has a gorgeous bar and great views from the lanai. We actually saw a pod of whales last night which is very rare for late April.

This is a must if you’re on Kauai! Amazing sushi and Japanese food and beautiful setting. Everything I’ve had here is delicious! My favorites are the sushi pizza (I know, it sounds weird), the lobster dynamite (try it with a bowl of sushi rice), and the black rock roll. The past couple times I’ve gone my server has been Johnny. He’s AWESOME! Super friendly and helpful, so if you’re able to request him, I’d definitely do that. We are so glad Stevenson’s has reopened! Make sure to make a reservation and treat yourself!
