One of our favorite places to go for special occasions. Took friends that hadn't been there before. They thought it was great and would come back again.
It was our anniversary (5/1/21, 20yrs.) and everything was perfect. We have eaten here before and the quality has not diminished. Alejandro was a excellent server.
Our food choices were amazing, including opah and a fillet. The waiter, Les, was friendly, professional and engaging.
Alejandro gave us excellent service and the chefs provided a delicious meal. The koi are always fun entertainment as well. Tide pools is excellent for a romantic date with your sweetheart!
Fantastic meal and even better service from Les who was an outstanding server. The restaurant was beautiful and open and was a much needed relaxing end to a long day of travel.
Everything was top notch, we were remembered by staff members, Kai and Les. Our server was great, the food was great, and, the ambiance was great. We had the scallops, and Opah, both were phenomenal. This is our favorite restaurant on Kauai
Great food. Phenomenal service.
Ceasar salad dressing very nice though didnt care fot crotons. Meal choices very nice, mine was a ten. Dessert was ok. Overall a 8.5
The waiter Juan was very warm and welcoming. We loved the whole evening!
Right next to the fish
Atmosphere- very relaxing
Our server was Alejandro and he was informative and attentive. We had Kalbi for appetizer and NY steak for my husband and Hawaiian Catch for me. Both were delicious! After dinner, we enjoyed the sunset views on the ground. We plan to go back when we r back in Kauai!!
We had a very special time. We were seated at the best table in the house for our wedding anniversary. Our server Kylen was over the top. He was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and welcoming. The food was incredible and the ambiance was perfect.
Fabulous food and service. Lovely ambiance. Definitely the best experience . Far better than the Beach House experience. The waiter was very attentive and friendly while giving us privacy at the same time. Food wasdelish! 🎉🎉🎉❤️
Tidepools was the number one pick of our foursome for the 10 day dining experience in Kauai.
Fish, steak, salads and malasadas were the best during our stay.
Really disappointed with the fillet. What was labeled at 'center cut', had more fat than just about any steak I've ever had. Even after I sent it back, the 2nd steak was somewhat fatty and very poor texture. I give the fillet 0 out of 5 stars. My wife's mahi mahi was decent but not great. The crust was more of a glaze and the fish itself tasted a bit old.
The waiter was great. No complaints on the service.
I had requested the island table over a month in advance but I did not get it nor did the hostess even mention my request. I called the restaurant multiple times leading up to our arrival to confirm our table but I was never able to reach the restaurant even though it was open.
It's impossible to justify the prices this restaurant charges. The food is simply not where it should be.
Everything was outstanding. Our waiter Juan was incredibly knowledgeable on the menu and extremely professional and personable. I had the Hawaiian seafood dinner which had a sampling of many-seafood items each well prepared. It was a terrific evening healthy tasty offerings top notch high end atmosphere. Reservations are tough i would recommend booking a week out to get your desired time and date.
We love this place. The drinks and food were excellent as always. We were celebrating my wife’s significant birthday. They gave us the lava cake for the celebration. Everything was perfect. We’ll definitely be back.
Welcome back Tidepools!!! We are locals in support of Kauai and have been waiting for Tidepools to open so we could go experience a wonderful meal near the ocean and enjoy the koi. We had an excellent evening and highly recommend this location.
Very Well Worth The Time and Money in a Stunningly Beautiful Environment.
Location, service and food all top notch. We had dinner here on our wedding night and made a point to dine again on our fifth anniversary. It was the same great experience. Shout out to our server, Juan!
Always great food and service
Always outstanding! Food, service, and ambiance.
Loved everything about it! We’ll be back next trip!
Food and service was excellent, however, we were surrounded by tables with toddlers which took away from the romantic dinner.
We used to go to Tidepools only once a year for VERY special occasions. After this last visit I’d like to think that life itself is worth celebrating at Tidepools every month or so.
We had the most magnificent server, a 30-year veteran of this restaurant. He took 100% responsibility for our experience. At times I wondered if he was the owner. Other times I wondered if he was also a chef. He met every request with seeming ease.
We started by sharing 2 appetizers: Himachi and Polenta-crusted scallops. Both were delectable. We enjoyed sharing a cool crisp Caesar salad. After-asking if anchovies were ok, and I gleefully said yes, all the anchovies found their rightful place on my portion of the salad. We all had the Opah topped with crab for our entree’s. And it did not disappoint. FABULOUS, as usual.
We ended our amazing meal with the molten chocolate cake and passion fruit ice cream.
We will be back — sooner than next year!
This is a must if you are looking for a special place to have dinner with your partner. The ambience is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and our server was wonderful.
Food, drinks, and atmosphere was absolutely amazing!! Highly recommend
Favorite place for dinner - food is excellently prepared, wait staff is attentive and super friendly. Love the location.
One of the best fine dining restaurants on the Island. The staff is amazing, the food wonderful, and the view and water features are calming. Don’t miss treating yourself, friends and family to this dining experience.
Beautiful view, poor service, pricy below average food.
Beautiful, clean, socially distanced setting. All staff were proactively helpful and kind in their service. Accommodating to food allergies. Everything in the Hawaii catch entree was perfectly cooked; not overdone. In my experience, this consistency is rare with a seafood medley.
Great location, friendly service and tasty food! A very place to celebrate our 40th anniversary!
An all time favorite on Kauai
The evening was flawless from the greeters, to dessert
Gorgeous setting, beautiful Polynesian design, amazing food and excellent service by the entire staff
The food was shockingly awful. But they were kind enough to take entrees off the bill as it was evident we hardly touched our food.
Excellent meal and overall experience. Our favorite in Poipu!
Great food, knowledgeable staff, wonderful ambience.
51st Anniversary, 70th birthday and breast cancer survivor (wife)!!!! The perfect trifecta!!!
Best seat in the house. I couldn't have drawn it up any better.
Also. Our server, Les, was The Man!
