We were catered to by the staff at Tidepools for the entire evening. Our reservation was for 8:15pm but traffic was unusually light so we arrived 15 minutes early. I asked if it were possible to be seated early and was told “absolutely”. Our waiters name was Les and we were very fortunate to have him at our service! Les is a professional in every meaning of the way! He is impressively knowledgeable of the menu, details about ingredients and of how each dish is prepared! Les has excellent communication skills and really goes the extra mile for his guests!! The food was wonderful, the ambience was romantic, and all of this came together to make our evening perfect!!

Delicious food, romantic atmosphere by the pond. Service quite good but not spectacular. Incredible setting! Loved the malasadas!

We are staying at the Grand Hyatt Kauai and this restaurant is located on property. It sits semi open air on the middle of a large koi pond. The Open Table reservation had us seated right on time.

The service was very slow. Their organization has only certain wait staff designated to take orders. This made things very inefficient.

The food is quite excellent. I had the prime rib which was medium rare as ordered. The four of us all had something different and nobody was unhappy with their choice.

The only issue with ambiance is that the place is close to the beach and the pool so although prices would pit this as one of the more expensive places to eat the are people dressed in beach attire.

Food was excellent, service was outstanding. Expensive, but worth it for the occasional perfect night out on Kauai.

Tidepools is a wonderful upscale dining experience. The fish is prepared and served perfectly, and the accompaniments are delicious as well. The prices reflect the quality of the experience. Perfect for a special "WOW!" occasion.
