Tidepools - Grand Hyatt Kauai
Food was mediocre. Not bad but not great. And for the price you expect a really good meal. Came here a couple times on our last visit 3 years ago and we enjoyed it thoroughly.
We came here because we were staying at the hotel and the best thing about the entire night was the view. The service started out great but declined as the meal went on and the food was nothing special, especially for the price.
Excellent service, atmosphere and delicious food!!!
Vacation 1 of 2 nice dinner spots
Our food was wonderful and had a great view of the fish. Perfect date night and wonderful service!
Our server, Dallas, was absolutely wonderful! It’s one of our fav places to go when we come to Kauai and this time proved once again that it is worth it. 10/10 will come back.
Overpriced for sure
Such a beautiful restaurant, great food and outstanding service
Unbelievable food, setting and service
Delicious food and drinks. Service was good despite the crowd.
The food is very fresh, fish caught that day, and the service very knowledgeable and attentive. The ambiance is great.
The food was very good as usual. The ambiance is always great. Our waiter was just okay, and for me, that is why I couldn’t give Tidepools five stars.
We picked this restaurant for our 50th wedding anniversary. We were asked our room number and said we were not staying at the Hyatt. We were placed at a large table next to the waterfall. Between the distance across the table & the waterfalls, we could not hear each other. We asked to be moved. After we were asked if another noisy spot was ok, which wasn't ok, we were placed at a table that had a great view of the cooking/preparation/kitchen----clang, clang, clang. We were by water but felt like we were in a hallway. Ambience was definitely missing.
Beautiful place surrounded by pools of koi and natural materials. Each dish was excellent. Fish perfectly cooked. Good selection and use of fresh native ingredients. Service was on point. No complaints.
Service was excellent, food is tasty, view is great, beautiful Koi pond. Overall great dining experience!!
Went here 10 years ago and came back again for nostalgia reasons. It’s really nice and the staff is great. The food is ok but the koi fish ponds and atmosphere more then makes up for it. Make your reservation ahead of time and request an exterior table so you can really enjoy the koi fish. If your on the south shore this is a must go for sure.
The food was excellent and well worth the money, but the wine list was somewhat sad. $10-$12 bottles readily available down the street went for $50 to $60.
Fabulous food. The crab cakes were outstanding and the fish dishes were excellent. Our server, Les, created a wonderful experience for us. Thank you! We will be back.
Our waiter Les is a Treasure, food terrific, ambiance, chefs supreme
We went here on our last night in Kauai and it was fabulous. Prime rib with scallops was amazing as was my husbands filet mignon. Great service. Great ambiance. Would absolutely recommend!
Slow service but generally good experience for special occasion. Staff seemed upset that we were 5 min early for our 5:30 pm reservation. Their attitude set a dull spirit into our special evening.
A little expensive but good. Great fish and seafood.
Beautiful Location, delicious food, the only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that my dinner date and I were seated in a very loud location where they seat all the bigger groups,...it was very warm and humid...took away from the romantic vibe...
This was exceptional dining! We drove from the north end of Kauai and it was well worth the drive. The ambiance was amazing. Food was amazing. Service was exceptional.
Romantic setting surrounded by water and koi fish
Great food and service.
Waiter was slow, not helpful. Forgot about us, then messed up order, then forgot again. Never even apologized
We were disapointed. If you are sitting in the middle of the restaurant, there is no view. Food was excellent. This is an expensive restaurant. Service was ok but we have had much more attentive service at much less expensive restaurants.
Our meal and evening at Tidepools was magical! Joy was an outstanding server, the food was delicious and our drinks were tasty!!
This is a beautiful, intimate, and airy restaurant!
Can’t wait to return!!
Just had a fantastic meal along the tide pool. All servers were friendly and attentive. Rob was the best!!
A little disappointed. My fish was over cooked and dry and service was just ok. Neat location though just not sure it was worth the price tag.
Atmosphere was great. Food was good. We had the crab cakes which was our least favorite. The crab was very finely shredded and mushy. The sauce tasted like mayo. The arugula salad was very good. I have the poke duo - Ahi was spot on delicious - hamachi was fishy. Husband had the prime rib. It was good - not the best we’ve had. Overall you can’t beat the ambiance - so worth the experience.
The whole Snapper fried with Kimchee fried rice was phenomenal!! Excellent service and spectacular view.
Très bon. Belle présentation. Très bon service. Décor super.
Went here for our anniversary and they sat us at an amazing table next to a waterfall. Food was excellent and the server we had even brought us a special treat at the end for the occasion. I especially recommend the macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi.
The ambiance was great. The food portions were small and not as good for the price we paid. The server was decent.
Didn’t seat us until 20 minutes after our reservation.
My father was sick and couldn't make dinner, so our 4 top changed to a two spot at the last minute. Heads up all two tops are in the hallway between the pods. Felt very second class having everyone pass us by during our dinner. My recommendation would be to take one pod and make space for a couple of two tops. Food was good and presentation nice. If you're not staying at the Hyatt no need to travel here for dinner.
