Our Experience at Stevenson's has always been a great one. The service is always on point from start to finish. The fish is fresh Try it! You won't be disappointed! :) I had a few Lychee Martini's throughout dinner which is my favorite when coming here.

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!

Dining on the islands is always pretty expensive and good sushi anywhere is expensive. I mean- you get what you pay for! But this spot was great. Really yummy food, service was great. Fantastic environment and handling Covid very well. Highly recommend.

Lobster dynamite was really good. Sushi rolls have too much rice. Ambiance was nice but we went near open and the staff was messing around bc it appeared they didn't have much to do. Not a big deal but kind of annoying.

Sushi is delicious! Great view. Only complaint is that most of the food was brought out at once when we had requested the plates be broken up and served periodically.

We sat on the balcony but it was noisy. We had kampachi and hamachi Kamara appetizers and they were good. The sushi was mediocre, rice wasn't good and there was too much rice. The fish was dry, didn't taste fresh. Service was average. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

We ate at Stevenson's during the week we were staying at the Grand Hyatt for a meeting. It was so good, that we went back the next week when we were not staying at the Grand Hyatt! We are sushi eaters, and have eaten sushi all over the globe. The ONLY better sushi we have had was in Japan! Would highly recommend for people who enjoy extremely fresh, well prepared sushi and sashimi!

I would expect more local fish offerings at a Hawaiian sushi restaurant. The menu was uninspired and expensive for just another standard sushi restaurant.

Service and atmosphere was great though.

If you want good sushi on Kauai, try the Dolphin restaurant. I enjoyed that restaurant much more.

We went from the side door by the hotel lobby without knowing the hostess station is by the other door, the hostess walked by and asking us to give her a second and she could check us in; however she did not direct us to her station but having us waiting by the side door without saying anything. We waited and waited until another staff asked if she could help us and directed us to the long line by the hostess station, when it was our turn, I said to the hostess that she had us waiting by the side door without directing us to the right station. She did not apologize or said anything but checked us in. That was so rude and completely unacceptable, not to mention the restaurant is a premium restaurant and we are the hotel guest of Hyatt as well.

No view of sunset really from balcony. Sushi was fresh but expected in Hawaii. I have had better sushi creative rolls at Chuck’s Fish in Tuscaloosa, AL and I have eaten sushi all over the USA so not impressed. Would have paid for a more incredible experience but we were limited being on an island. Nothing was bad but nothing stood out. Happen to be in Hawaii twice the year before on Lanai and the Big Island and both had incredible food! Love Kauai but not the food. Sorry

We ate at Stevenson's while staying at the Grand Hyatt while at a medical conference. We are sushi eaters and love fresh sushi/sashimi. Stevenson's definitely had this. They also have excellent saki, which because we were staying at the Grand Hyatt, we had no problems with drinking. Drinking and no driving is perfect! We started off with the Hamachi Blossoms which were absolutely excellent. My wife and I then split the Moriawase, which is the chef's 15 piece sashimi plater. We don't eat shellfish or eel, so we asked if we could get only scaled fish, and our request was immediately replied with, "Of Course!" We were served 15 pieces of some of the freshest fish we have ever had. WONDERFUL! Sushi is a "bad choice" for us, especially when it is excellent. Can becoming extremely pricey! But I (We) were enjoying these delicacies so much, we order a ke kai maki. Once again, outstanding. All of this fabulous fish was accompanied by a great bottle of cold saki. We got the Sawanoi, Junmai "Ginjo" Saki. Light, not extremely dry, and wonderful. NOT a cheap dinner, but we are probably going to go back next week when we are staying just for vacation!
