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.

I read the mixed yelp review but decided to give them a try for the breakfast buffet on the last day at the resort. Big mistake!!! The food was mediocre to average at best. Omelet made to order dry and overcooked. The bloody mary station was just a jar of tomato mixture and if you want alcohol its $5 extra. The biggest or i should say "buggist" turnoff was the cheese and coldcut section covered in flies! Disgusting. And to further worsen this experience, the restaurant was empty but they placed a table of screaming kids next to my table. Save your money and have a good breakfast at the nearby Honolua store.

If you like quantity, this is the place. Quality is not there for the price. We had breakfast here twice during our stay, the first time to try it out the last time because there were no other options before heading the airport. I would prefer to spend the money at The Banyan tree on the property or even the pool side bar. Recommend a walk to the grocery store right at the edge of the property of the breakfast essentials.

We have visited Maui ever couple of years since 1995. No matter our plans, we always make a trip to the Ritz-Carlton at Kapalua for the morning buffet at the Terrace Restaurant as part of our time on Maui. We have stayed at the Ritz on several occasions and find the climate the best on Maui. We enjoy walking in the pines, playing at beach below the resort and all the great services offered.

We recommend to everyone who comes to Maui that they visit the Ritz-Carlton at Kapalua to experience a very special part of the island.

Have been here for brunch more times than I can count. Service has always been stellar until now. Dining room relatively empty but server not attentive. Table not cleared between trips to buffet or cleared but silverware not replaced, and beverages not refilled. Server didn't explain one can order off the menu also (since we were paying for the buffet they have always included breakfast menu items). It was disappointing because I've had this server before and never had this type of service. Food was great as always but for the price of the buffet the service should be on par with the food.
