Our dining experience at the Banyan Tree was extremely disappointing. In fact, it was the worst dining experience during our two week Maui stay. Although the Ritz Carlton claims to practice all Covid protocols we found tables closer than six feet and management was not enforcing distancing requirements. Restaurant itself is beautifully appointed and has some of the best views from restaurants on Maui. Sadly the background music was too loud and often did not compliment the ambiance one would expect from a high end restaurant like one expects at the Ritz. Service was very disappointing. Dirty dishes were not promptly cleared and wait staff rarely checked to see if we needed anything. The food tasted very good and was artfully presented. Portions were small especially given the menu prices. We were seated next to a family with small children and regret not asking to be moved. The restaurant manager noted our displeasure as we finished our dinner and we expressed our disappointment. We visit Maui often and will not return to this restaurant.

Robert has retired after 30 years of wonderful service. We were lucky enough to see the staff honoring him and serving him, as he has served so many others over the years. Fear not, we will still return, since the service and the food is excellent. If you call ahead, the chef mind be able to make you a special sushi roll!

A five dollar up charge for bread may seem reasonable if you deliver more than four little rolls. Nothing like what is pictured on the online official photos. One half a banana on the banana foster dessert item seems to fit right in. A $20 dessert all in must require them to save the other half banana for the next guest. The entire meal was the same as this. Good taste, stingy portions and moderate service with lovely surroundings.

Nice place, friendly service, but slow service. Waiting got our food was a bit long. Foods was ok, nothing extraordinary, and certainly not worth the money. Chicken was covered in a thick batter, and the meat was dry.

Exceptional experience! Celebrated our 18th anniversary and everything was perfect. Hostess/ host were friendly and efficient. Our server Lara was superb. Her recommendations were spot on and she really made the entire experience memorable. A member of our 4 person group has gluten issues and everyone went above and beyond to make her experience wonderful. Chef Isabelle Toland even came out to say hello. If you get the chance, don’t hesitate to try The Banyan Tree.

Food was great. Service was not very good. Seated on the covered lanai, started to rain, 2 other tables were moved, but our waiter was nowhere to be found. He had a great attitude, but was very absent. We finally got to dessert and after we ordered it, ice cream was brought, but that was not what we asked for. By then we were damp, cold and read to leave. Disappointing for a Ritz property.
