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.

We were expecting MUCH MORE!

We were here twice and both times the service was lacking. The waitress didn’t give us utensils or chopsticks. We had to ask for bowls for our soy sauce. We had reservations for 730 and got our 2 rolls at 9pm. We had to ask for our table to be cleaned off.

Be careful ordering the unagO vs the normal unagI. The norm is fresh water eel but the waitress and the menu forgot to explain that the seawater eel tastes horrible and was prepared in a very unflattering way.

I asked for no mayo and still got it after the 90 minute wait. Management was good about taking things back that were errors.

The place isn’t that large but the waitresses basically hang out chatting with each other rather than actually serving.

We actually received way better service from the busboy and manager than the wait staff. I wish 100% of the tip could have gone to him.

Fish is fresh but I was also missing some of the main classics for a sushi restaurant. So not sure if this place is rated so high because it is the best sushi restaurant on the island??? But it certainly does NOT compete with an average sushi house anywhere else.

The prices are extremely high too. Which would have been acceptable if some of the other basics were in order.

Well the sushi was tasty but nothing to write home about. It was a bit pricey but it is located in a resort so what do you expect. The seating if your not at the bar is pretty uncomfortable. Was expecting more and got less. We were pretty disappointed and cancelled our other reservation we had for later in the week.

Outstanding sushi in generous portions (8 pieces per maki roll). Lobster dynamite appetizer lived up to its name. Drinks were also excellent - a great meal. If the price seems high, it’s only because you are not used to five star resort prices.
