    A true pleasure to enjoy a later evening meal at the Grand Hyatt Kauai. Food and Service were spectacular. The Tiramisushi dessert is unforgettable delicious.

    We are a family of 5 and our youngest is a teenager, so everyone found something they liked, even the non-sushi eaters. That being said, the sushi was excellent with unique rolls, fish, and combinations. For families and friends: ordering a bunch of foods (in this case rolls) and sharing them as a group really promotes conversation about the food and other things, as opposed to each person having their own meal. The hamachi carpaccio was delicious as were all the rolls, and we ordered 7. Our service was excellent, the atmosphere was chill, and the restaurant itself has a uniquely comfortable feel. The ‘library’ decorations and our corner table felt as if we were eating in our living room and had an element of privacy in an otherwise busy restaurant. We have eaten at several very good restaurants in Kauai and everyone in the family agreed that this was our favorite meal. Very professional and well-executed. Good times, good food, good friends (family). Will DEFINITELY eat here again if we return to Kauai (hopefully).

    The sushi here was delicious - the kind that melts in your mouth and makes you wonder why all sushi doesn't taste this amazing! The rolls were good, but the sashimi and nigiri were AMAZING. The cocktails and mocktails were also good! Our server was kind and was willing to help work around some food intolerances. It was a wonderful experience.

    Discovered this place on a walk to the Hyatt and it looked great. Fully booked, waited over an hour to get 2 seats at the bar, sushi was great, terrific cocktail selection and very creative. Wanted to come back with a reservation to experience it in full, and booked for our last night in Kauai. Arrived 15 min early, gave our phone number, as they were not ready. We were texted to come for our table right on time. It went downhill from there. Took a bit to get our waitress, then ordered drinks. She didn't come back for awhile, but we were fine, got drinks. She took our order to start, for 2 sushi rolls. We never saw her again. It was almost an hour before we got food. She didn't come back to check on us, or to allow us to order something else, or possibly apologize and let us know why the wait was so long and ask if we wanted to order something in the meantime if the sushi was backed up, so we could have food, since it was now after 9pm. Finally we flagged someone running food and asked to order a salad. Eventually our sushi arrived, it was excellent, but were were starving, frustrated and tired. We didn't see our waitress for awhile again. Finally she asked if we wanted something else. We had planned on it but at this point said no and just wanted to leave. Again took awhile for her to drop off a check--but it was the wrong one! Again we waited for her to come back for quite awhile so we could tell her. It was such a bad night, and we had such a nice time a few days before, we expected it to be equal or even better, with table service. Not a chance. We saw food coming out to many tables, and neither our waitress or a manager even came by to give an update, apologize or let us know why it was taking so long. No one noticed us looking around to get someones attention. Sadly, while we thought the food and drinks were good, we wouldn't come back due to the poor customer service. There are many places you can pay $$$$ for that provide better service. So disappointed.

    Stevenson’s is our favorite Sushi on the island. Good verity and quality on all items. You should try the Japanese Cod, they fly it in 3 times a week. Excellent service from Ashley, the manager, and we enjoy Tori every time she is our server. Well worth the price!

    Limited menu, not a whole lot of choices. Kind of was expecting more and thought they had live music which I thought I read somewhere, but they didn’t. Service was extremely slow and didn’t add to the experience. Overall I was disappointed in the place.

    Hostess had cold and unfriendly personality-especially knowing we were guests of the hotel. Made us wait for our reservation when the restaurant was 3/4 empty and we were the only guests she had to seat. Food was good. Service felt very inattentive at first then rushed by constant clearing of our table. Will not return.

    Nice environment with great view of the ocean. Sushi overall was just ok. Fish was fresh but lacked real flavor. Hamachi appetizer feature sliced jalapeños. No heat from the peppers on this dish and way too much tobika. Overall rolls were ordinary given the price.

    Stevenson’s Sushi was some of the best sushi I have ever tasted. The Stuffed Lobster appetizer was amazing, some of the best lobster EVER. We also had several other various rolls and all were delicious. The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice and tranquil, and the service was impeccable. We considered the cost very reasonable, especially for the quality of the sushi. Definitely make your reservations well in advance to enjoy the Stevenson’s experience.

    Stevensons Library has a beautiful, chill atmosphere with a spectacular view of the ocean. The sushi and the sake sampler were very good. Since it’s all about the location, the fare is somewhat steep, but you’re also paying for the wonderful ambience.
