Beautiful location, decent food, but service was terrible. Not sure if this is the case for everyone but we didn’t get our food until 50 minutes after we were sat. And food didn’t meet the standard for the prices they charged. Definitely will not be coming here again.

We are so happy The Plantation House has reopened during our visit on Maui. It is a tradition dining at this wonderful restaurant and it never disappoints. The aloha service and hospitality is always as abundant as the fantastic West Maui views.

We had a reservation for 6 and were crammed into a tiny table. Our waitress had no clue what she was doing. The tiny table was quickly filled with menus, water glasses, cocktails and wine bottles and glasses. The menus is uninspiring and the food unremarkable. Ambiance is blah. It was ranked 10th out of 10 for the restaurants we ate at in Maui this trip. My advice: not worth it. Just move o and eat somewhere else. It was extremely disappointing.

Outstanding in every sense! The view, service and food are all FIVE STARS. I would eat here every night if I lived in Kapalua. :) The Ahi was possibly the BEST we've ever had. My Ribeye was out of bounds delicious. I can't wait to go back.

Terrific service and spectacular views. Best salad we’ve had on this trip, pasta was excellent. Pineapple cake was certainly non-traditional, not up to the rest of the cuisine.

Our visit to the Plantation House was incredible! From the food to the sunset views to the service to the ambiance, it was perfect.

Their red snapper special and the Hawaiian short rib were both delicious! Make sure to order the pineapple upside down cake for dessert…it’s the best we’ve ever had!

My husbands short rib plate was tender and he enjoyed. My fish was dried out, fishy and only barely warm. My rice was crunchy like it was either undercooked or sat under a heat lamp. It tasted like it was made day prior, very disappointed. Expensive for the fact that only one dish was edible🤪

Beautiful views and excellent food. Had the mahi mahi which was excellent. Pineapple upside down cake was delicious. Our table had an unobstructed view of the ocean and sunset. It was beautiful! Reservations at 5:15 were perfect for getting there before the crowds and watching the sun set.

Location is beautiful, building is spacious, clean and perfect. Sunset was obscured by heavy clouds so we missed that opportunity. Food was delicious, which was good because it was so slow. Took 15 mins to get wine, 20 more to get salad, and another 30 to get entrees, despite ordering it all at once. Would be great for a party of 4 or more who really want time to visit between courses, but not great for two on vacation who already spent all day together!

Megan was great. We asked her if we could have the bananas foster for dessert. The food we had was tasty and fresh. We enjoyed the dinner and the surroundings. Her suggestion for appetizer was appreciated. We enjoyed the scallops.

Beautiful view of the golf course. The restaurant is very open and we enjoyed the fresh Hawaiian air. We were seated on a open balcony which was beautiful however I would recommend reserving a table more towards the evening as the setting sun was hot. Food was good

One of the most scenically located restaurants on Maui for sure!

If you'll good to 'pay' for the view, i.e. $95 for 1 app, 2 breakfasts & 2 drinks, this is THE place for you.

Service & food - average.
