We had a good seat and ok service, however the food selection was severely lacking. They no longer offer a la carte items (one of the main perks of paying $39.99 for brunch). I specifically wanted Coconut French toast but was informed after we sat down, that they no longer could do a la carte because the kitchen was too far away because they moved the location of brunch. But I was told that I only missed it by a day, because it was the specialty yesterday. Great. That helps me a lot today. The hostess was very nice but our waiter was easily distracted by other tables before making the rounds to us. Brunch now overlooks the golf course, not the pool/beach also.

Food served was good and a creative presentation but for $108 the quantity was lacking no waffles or pancakes or French toast or scrambled eggs. Disappointed there wasn’t champagne served with brunch. All beverages were extra. Service was slow. We waited for juice, and coffee, and bar drinks. Disappointed. Not worth the $$. Sorry.

We booked The Terrace for Easter breakfast intending to order off of the menu as we do not like buffet food. When we arrived we were told to go to the Banyan Tree restaurant by the pool, which confused Ilya since we booked The Terrace. When we were seated they advised that the Terrace is closed for renovations and the only option was a sub-par small buffet.
Huge disappointment for us and incredibly misleading that the option to book on Open Table is there if the intended restaurant is closed for the next 4-6 months. Was hoping for a wonderful family breakfast to celebrate Easter Sunday, instead we had coffee while our boys are a few strips of bacon.

The Terrace Restaurant was under construction so we were redirected to a makeshift “Terrace” Restaurant which looked more like a meeting room. We went there with full knowledge about the breakfast buffet but according to the website we could order a la carte. When we got there we were told that we could NOT order a la carte. Everything was buffet due to the construction. The food was average. I wish the website had been updated because it cost $39 per person for breakfast. I could overlook the cost if the food was really worth it but it wasn’t. This was a big disappointment especially since it was a going away breakfast for 2 people in our 6 person party.

Our tradition is to have brunch a The Ritz on our final day in Maui each year. This year the value didn’t see to be there. The waffles were great, as were the eggs. But there weren’t enough choices for our gluten free companion. It was still nice but perhaps not worth $40

While the location is beautiful and the breakfast offerings were good, I expected more of a $40 brunch buffet. For example, their "Japanese Station" consisted of miso soup rather than the sushi you usually see at a high-end buffet. Everything I ate was tasty, but it was really just a nice breakfast.

We went for the New Years Eve buffet. Expected WAY better from the Ritz. The prime rib carving station doled out meager portions very slowly - almost like they wanted it to be too much trouble to eat any. The prepared dishes were like casseroles at a pot luck at the end of the day-mushy and messy and not really edible. The seafood was prepared only in a ‘lobster bisque’ broth that I think was a warm pot of milk they just showed a picture of lobster to. The cheese they chose for the buffet made the entire serving area smell like the dairy it came from. NOT appetizing. Very disappointing. We didn’t mind paying the $200 dollars a plate (much) but, honestly, would have had better food at a strip mall.

New Years Eve Dinner a Disappointment
We expected an elegant evening for the $135 per head fee.
There were no table linens or decorations at our table and the lighting was ala school cafeteria . The only alcohol included was a mediocre glass pf proseco on arrival.
And while the selection of food on the buffet was impressive , the lines for key entrees ( steak ) was long .
All in all not worth the money .

Excellent for Breakfast. YES, we would go back. LONGER VERSION: Service from Kevin - a lifetime local - was outstanding - enough attention and advice to mix in with a nice brunch. We had Sunday brunch which we were surprised ended around 11 am, we thought at least noon would be normal but they know their business plan. Sunday buffet was a bit pricey (near $100 for 2 with tip), BUT it was excellent - all you could ever ask for. They did not have Portuguese Sausage on the buffet, but Kevin brought a small side from the back - excellent attention you would expect from the Ritz. The macadamia nut pancakes and the crispy bacon were the best we have had in years. Nice job.

The Ritz is as high end as you can get on the island. The prices reflect it but you won’t get better food options either anywhere else. We went for breakfast and they had eggs Benedict as part of their breakfast buffet. They had salmon, omelets, bloody Mary’s to self pour. If you want to make a good impression this is the best way to do it. But for 4 ppl pur bill was $200 after tip and tax

Would not go return or recommend to friends or family unless they brought us back with efforts to change our opinion about visiting here. I flew to Maui on a business trip, my business partner and I choose meeting places on inspiration and feeling, since we both have not been to the Ritz in Kapalua, we both were excited with high hopes. As we arrived we asked an enterprise employee where the terrace restaurant was. We headed down to the hostess and was seated. We sat down and looked around and the views outdoor and the decor in the dinning area. We noticed there were holes on the ceiling in different areas patched up poorly with a board. There were also brown and green blackish marks as if there were water damage and the establishment couldn't afford to properly repair these faults. Tables had no coasters so I continuously had to keep wiping the condensation and table for small water puddles not exajurating so my business laptop wouldn't get water in it. Being an athlete and owner of a fitness business, I went to the omelette station for healthier options and a protein powered breakfast. Sausage, ham and another meet were available, but no lean protein like chicken breast or turkey so I asked the chef if there was a possibility to order some. I ended up asking 3 different people in prefer to make it happen and when it finally arrived 15 minutes later I was done eating my omelette. Paid around $60/each for breakfast when we would have been happier eating at a local Zippys which offer chicken & mushroom egg white omlettes and a restaurant with no poorly done coverups on the ceiling. Bathrooms were disgusting as well, toilet paper left over in toilet of one stall and residue marks in the other. Went to valet as they seemed busy, felt bad for the staff, so we ended up getting our own vehicle still parked around the bend. Want to go somewhere worth your $ and time, try four seasons Hualalai on Big Island!!!

Made reservation for 6:00 and arrived to learn they didn't open until 6:30. Not very graciously handled by waitstaff. Came back and found selection surprisingly middle of the road - Fruit Loops, white flour breads and highly sweetened selections. Omelette bar had limited local, fresh veggie options (no avocado). Food was on par with any low end hotel chain. Disappointed.

This was for Sunday brunch and Monday breakfast during an R-C weekend stay. One of the best breakfast/brunch buffets ever, compared to 5 star hotels in Europe, mainland US, Hawaii. Great quality and variety. Cucumber juice, asparagus crab gratin, excellent salmon, miso soup and condiments, fresh fruits, Virgin Mary buffet, Pineapple puff pastry, the best quiches, macadamia nut pancakes and Nutella/banana stuffed pancakes (stayed fresh not dried out on the buffet), fluffy scrambled eggs, great variety of cheeses (Port Salut, Brie, Bel Paese), fish of the day. Fruit danish, coffee muffin, friendly chef making omelets (16 yr Kapalua veteran).Would have appreciated kama'aina discount, as The Banyan Tree and local restaurants do.

We waited at our table for about 20 minutes without being seen. We had to wave someone down to get our table set up and get menus. We had a 2 and 4 year old dining with us so they got bored (and hungry) very quickly. The food was good once we finally received it.

We've been here for brunch several times and it's always a treat. The food is delicious and there is an incredible variety to choose from. We've tried nearly everything and would recommend it all. They have a great pastry program, not just for a hotel but for any really great bakery. I love that they offer Japanese breakfast in addition to the more traditional American brunch buffet options. The fish is outstanding. Great service and a beautiful room to relax in on a Sunday morning, or any morning. The waffles are amazing!!!

My family and I were here for the breakfast buffet on a Tuesday morning. Free valet parking for guests who aren't staying at the Ritz. Very attentive service without being obtrusive. We requested a table right by the large windows that open out onto the grounds of the resort, but the view was a bit limited. I imagine it would be stunning if all the windows were pulled open. Generally excellent quality of food. No carving station. The waffles station was my favourite - some of the best I've ever had! You can ask for coconut syrup from the servers if you prefer that over maple syrup. The coffee was very good - 100% Maui grown. There is an à la carte option for those who don't want to gorge themselves, but what would be the fun in that? Will come back for this breakfast buffet the next time I'm in Maui.

The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua staff at The Terrace ensured we had an amazing experience. We were treated like VIPs by Laura. She even brought complimentary mimosas made with pineapple champagne for my husband's birthday, which were delicious. The window seat facing the ocean was picturesque and a perfect setting for an amazing breakfast. We both got the Kapalua Breakfast, which gives you access to the full breakfast buffet, omelette station and fresh juice. It also includes coffee! I would definitely go back! It was truly wonderful.

We have been to The Terrace for Christmas dinner in the past and have found it to be wonderful. This year, though, was very disappointing. We were seated at a folding table with folding chairs crammed in to a corner, hardly able to make our way back and forth to the buffet without knocking into other people. That was despite making a reservation more than a month in advance. They were clearly trying to squeeze in every last person and willing to sacrifice the Ritz Carlton level of service and ambiance to do so. The food was absolutely terrific as always, but unable to overcome the otherwise poor experience.
