The food was incredible. We dined outside on the lanai and it was truly perfect. Tiki torches and the pool nearby amplified the ambiance. The food was incredible and the service couldn’t have been better.

What an awesome experience. Celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable and the food devine. Every one we encountered addressed us by our names and they even provided us with a complimentary dessert. Highly recommend!

We went here for dinner after our wedding, and everything was magical. Amazing food (and we’re a little snobby about food), amazing service (Lara is wonderful), a special table, champagne, complimentary dessert...the list goes on. I can’t recommend this place enough. A very special evening that we’ll remember forever.

The fish of the day and bananas foster malasada and service were amazing! The cioppino wasn’t worth the $54 price tag.

Excellent service and wonderful food with a spectacular view. Definitely a splurge, and well worth it. The catch of the day was delightful and the bananas foster was from another dimension. Excellent beer and wine list.

Food is fine, nothing adventurous, slightly under seasoned. The service was very spotty, minimal check ins, long periods of time with empty water cups. It was not busy at the time, either. Other tables around us had similar experiences.

Location is superb though- beautiful property, and very nice open restaurant.

Go for the food, stay for the ambiance, & relish in the wonderful service! We had made a reservation on Open Table that somehow did not show up in their system. Luckily, we stopped by a few hours earlier to ask for a seat closest to the water, and someone was quick to correct the mixup. We ordered the heirloom tomato burrata salad, tuna tartare which were pretty standard. The mains, however, are what stood out the most. The lobster agnolotti was so delicious and the fresh catch of the day cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend them, & will most definitely be back!

The food was exquisite and unlike anything else we had on Maui. We spent the last evening of our honeymoon at the restaurant and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. They even gave us the amazing dessert on the house. We tried two different fish dishes and I have never had food quite so delicious in my life! If we ever make it back to Maui, we will certainly be splurging on another dinner here!

We had a wonderful time at The Banyan Tree, while on vacation from Arizona. It was a beautiful view, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. It was our last night in town and a perfect ending to our trip. Thank you. Kim and Bruce Grieser

During our stay in Maui, we had MUCH better meals in Lahaina (minus the desserts which were fabulous) - so be sure to check out the 4+ star restaurants there and book early! Don’t leave this restaurant without the hot chocolate cake and the banana foster - definitely worth the extra calories!

The food leaves a lot to be desired. The catch of the day seemed to be a week old, dry, and flaky, almost like a pre-prepared meal on a cruise ship that they warmed up to serve. The New York strip cut and chewed like top sirloin, and the chef didn’t seem to grasp the concept of medium rare. It was sent out twice almost well done. Just plain not good, especially for the price. The ambience is great, but don’t sell yourself short. There are many restaurants that offer a similar, if not better, setting on Maui where the food is the star of the show. Go elsewhere if you are looking for a satisfying meal.

Beautiful atmosphere! Very slow service (received my first drink 30 minutes after arrival). Tomato burrata salad was served at room temp. The chefs special ($55) fish was almost raw soaked in teriyaki sauce. Every bite was like drinking teriyaki sauce. Since the service was so slow, it would have taken forever to return the fish and get something else, so we left. The $5 bread was great!

We were looking forward to dining here our first night at the hotel. The tomato Burrata salad was disappointing The burrata was very cold as if it had been frozen. We let the waiter know, but nothing was done to remedy the situation or really acknowledge it.

My vegetarian meal was good but what I thought was a grilled squash or yellow tomato was a lemon and when I cut it, it ruined the whole dish with way too much lemon and I could no longer taste the lovely sauces. I did not mention anything.

The banana dessert was really good. They knew it was our honeymoon, but didn’t acknowledge it.

Lovely setting, just disappointing to start off with ice cold burrata :(

Martini was lukewarm but there was only one man mixing drinks so he was probably overwhelmed. Only gave each drink 2 shakes. Need more signage just to find the restaurant. Server was wonderful and the food was good.

This was one of, if not, the best meals we’ve had on Maui. The daily fresh catch and braised short ribs were phenomenal. Our waiter, Nick was awesome and quite helpful. This will be on our must list for future Maui vacations.
