Personal and genuine service. After we finished our salad course, the hostess stopped by our table and asked me by name if everything was good. Drinks were refilled promptly and the salads were a work of art. The biggest draw to The Plantation is the breathtaking view of Kapalua and the Plantation’s pristine greens and fairways. This is a dining must for us when we visit west Maui each year.

We love The Plantatiin House. Keeping it for special occasions, we drive across the island for the excellent experience they provide at a fair price with a spectacular view. So glad they have edited for all these years!

We came to have a great dinner experience similar to our last visit four years ago, and for the Ahi menu items. Upon arrival they told us all of the Ahi items were not available, including other fish items. In addition the service we received was very slow, and the attitude of the server was very unpleasant towards us. Terrible experience.

We had a great meal and great service at the plantation House in Kapalua. We got there early and were seated first so we got a great table. Food was excellent as was the wine. Because it was Wednesday we had half off the bottle of wine. We plan on going back for date night Tuesday thank yo we had a great meal and great service at the plantation House in Kapalua.

We plan on going back for date night Tuesday since you get two entrées and a bottle of wine for $70. Now that it is a Cohn restaurant, it seems to have some good deals. The menu is much better than it used to be. A delightful evening and great food. And the view is spectacular!

Obviously shorthanded on staff as it seemed our waitress was the only one working, so she was very inattentive. Food was good not great. Certainly NOT a Fine Dining experience! Blaming the management not the waitress. The view is spectacular, but didn’t make up for the management failure. The hostess very accommodating.

The setting and views are stunning! Our dinners not so much. We ordered the caprese salad which was quite chilled. It should at least be room temp. Tomatoes not ripe. And mozzarella rubbery. If you are not offering good handmade mozzarella and ripe tomatoes, don’t put this on your menu. We both had the mahi mahi which was dry.

This restaurant is beautiful, the view of the golf course and ocean cannot be beat. The selection of food offered is great. We’ve eaten both breakfast and lunch there and always introduce friends to it. They agree that dining there is the best place you can get. The hostess is always helpful in seating you and the servers are the best, both friendly and conscientious. We come to Maui for a month every year and always make sure we can eat at The Plantation House.

The Eggs Benedict were great! My husband loved his chicken salad with walnuts. Great window seating as requested, a loud quest was the only annoyance, he really ruined the beautiful setting. Please bring back the patty melt!

INCREDIBLE banana bread! Celebrated two birthdays at a Sunday brunch. Crab Cake Benedict is delicious, perfect Hawaii treat. Drinks are a little over priced but delicious. The view is breath taking with a cool breeze. I would definitely dine here again.

The salmon and chicken dishes were middle of the road in taste and not worth the cost. Compared to other restaurants, the food quality is not equal to the cost. The service was just okay.

The Plantation House was highly recommended and my wife and I went there for my birthday. It is open air and overlooks the magnificent 18th fairway of the Kapalua Plantation golf course. The view is spectacular.

We arrived at 6:30 and were seated immediately. Ordered two cocktails and enjoyed the view for a while. After about half an hour we ordered a salad for my wife and the pea soup for me. Both were excellent. Because it was the Thursday night special we ordered the Prime Rib and waited and waited and waited.

An hour later they brought our dinners which were cold. We sent them back and in a few minutes the same two dishes were brought back. They had micro-waved the $40 prime rib to heat it up. It is an understatement to say I was upset. It was then that the waiter said he would have the manager come over and the manager told us they had a fire or some problem in the kitchen and they couldn't bring our meals. It is now 8:00 and they are now telling us the kitchen is down and they may have to close the next day. I look around the restaurant and realize there are at least 10 tables who have not been served dinner and never will. AND they have not been told.

Without making a fuss we just left. We will never go back.
