Our last night on Maui, before all done in was allowed. Service and food was excellent. We prefer a quieter place with a beautiful view.

We were there for brunch. Wanted to order 2 eggs and forgo the potatoes and toast for 1 pancake. Were told that would be $10 more! This is not the same Planation House we enjoyed for years. Very doubtful we would go back!

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the service from all staff was excellent. The food, however, was a bit lackluster. The vegetable pasta was supposed to be served with a mac nut pesto sauce which the waiter told us had basil. In fact, there was no basil and thus there was not much flavor in the dish.
For $29 it was also overpriced.
The fish special, calamari and seared ahi were delicious as were the desserts, albeit also expensive. The wine list was adequate.

My waitress KIM literally spilled juice on my table while placing the glass onto the coaster. She shook the excess liquid from her hands and just walked off. I had to wave at her to get her attention so she could return to the table to wipe up the mess.... Disgraceful!


The food was very good, in spite of the terrible service.

They have changed menu and look of the restaurant. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t as good as it used to be. Miss the Old Plantation House

Food was great, atmosphere was nice, service was okay. However the end was disappointing as I found a metal screw in my port, the way it was handled was very poorly. The waiter provided excuses of how they didn't know how it happened but never apologized. The manager didn't even come over and they comped only the one drink. Personally, for class of this restaurant and cost of dinner I would expect more. It would be horrifying to think what could have happened if this was swallowed.

Beautiful setting, but it stops there. We waited over an hour for our food before we left. Sat down in a relatively empty restaurant at 9:15, ordered at 9:25. Several tables came over the next 30 minutes while we patiently waited for our food. At 10:00, the table seated at 9:45 was served while 3 of the tables seated earlier continued to wait. I asked the waiter why they were served so quickly while we were still waiting and he completely blew us off like we were being so demanding. 20 minutes later, still no food and our waiter just rolled his eyes and said “I’m sorry, your food will be out shortly “. At 10:30 the waiter was no where in sight and no sign of any food so we left. I told the host to tell the manager that we were leaving. We had to wait 10 minutes for our car, and no one came out to say anything to us while we sat outside the restaurant. This was without a doubt a doubt the worst experience I have ever had and without a single explanation or sincere apology. Two tables nearby left while we were waiting for our car and, again, no one bothered to stop them. If you aren’t hungry this is a great place to visit for the view but if you want to eat, good luck.

The place is beautiful great environment. We come to visit 1-2 times a year. We were very dissatisfied with the quality of food. Use to be better. Watery eggs and the presentation was not good. Need to beef up the quality of how the food is prepared. Hope next time it’s better. Also bottles of wine and champagne should not be so expensive.

This is one of the most delightful places on Maui to eat a dinner, enjoying spectacular views and really delicious food. I love this place because it is quiet, restful, and the unhurried service lets you relax and enjoy the experience. The servings are generous and beautifully presented. Everything is a pleasure. I have eaten more 'gourmet' food in other restaurants, but this place is gourmet enough and totally satisfying. My favorite place in Maui.

We stopped by the plantation house for lunch - the short-rib french fries were a great starter (maybe too much?). For the entrees we got the fish tacos and a Da Burger. So much food, we waddled instead of walked out of the restaurant (and even got to-go boxes). Great / cozy atmosphere and lovely views. I rarely remember a waitresses name days after a meal, but Erica (Erika?) was fantastic!

We have been long term customers of the Plantation House but since it’s reopening in December it is not the same place. The breakfast menu is more limited and the prices have been raised. Everything is different and it is not for the better.
A few weeks ago we ate in the bar and found the bar menu to be lousy. To change the regular burger into an In and Out burger is ridiculous.
When you lose your regular loyal customers you need to pay attention. It is not good and we and many others have expressed their disappointment. It looks like the Plantation is going the way of the Pineapple Grill - take a popular great restaurant and run it into the ground.

Incredible Maui experience! From our wonderful waitress who was attentive, kind and conversed with us. Or the incredible food which every single bite was incredible from appetizers, to salad, to the main dish and dessert, and don’t forget the amazing views. We will definitely head back if we are in Maui again!!

We checked in upon arrival and were directed to the bar for a drink then they forgot about us. 25 minutes later I approached the hostess and they couldn’t find our reservation? They were unable to explain how we were forgetting about. No compensation.

We had a reservation and was celebrating birthdays and an anniversary. It took over 90 minutes to get our food and they never offered to celebrate our son's birthday or their anniversary. They took one cup of coffee to make up for a mistake in the kitchen????? We eat at 5 star restaurants frequently and were so disappointed.

Recent reservation has transformed the Plantation House from a somewhat special dinner or lunch venue into a venue which seems more suited to a casual tee shirt lunch. The menu is also much more limited. The prices are all that remain of its former self.
