Hadn't returned here since it was Sushi & Blues several years ago. Walked in on a slow Monday night looking for a drink and dessert. The aloha spirit was ever present and our service was fantastic. Highly recommend the Tempura Banana (ask for them to add a little chocolate drizzle!). Returned a few days later for happy hour -- not... More

Lunch today was mediocre. The fish tacos were dry and the accompanying black beans looked like they had been sitting out awhile. The waitress was handling too many tables so the service was slow. It was raining so the view from our table was of the beautiful green hills.

We stopped here for lunch during our week on the island over Thanksgiving. The overall service was above average, though our server was a bit pushy about the bar, and then again with the appetizers and desserts. I had a burger and my other half enjoyed a wrap. It was nothing special for either of us, and overpriced for what... More

Unfriendly Waitress. Had to wait quite long till we got dinner. The tortillas tasted something between bad washing powder and old wet cloth, not eatable. My girlfriend had a few macaroni in her cesar salad, where they really don't belong. Possibly because they use the same bowl over and over to prepare the salads. And finally they charged the credit... More

My husband had no complaints about his burger. My fish taco was dry and the rice that came with it seemed like warmed up leftovers with old crunchy grains mixed into it. The fish also was dried out on the edges. Our server was nice and the service fast. Unfortunately that did not make up for my meal.

Unfortunately, this was the only bad meal of our whole trip. We got the Baja nachos which were covered in cheese and black beans. We also got calamari as an appetizer. I've never even seen calamari look like that before. It was a beautiful view, but horrible food.

The main reason we come here all the time is for Mai Tais during happy hour. We got excellent, friendly service from our waitress Mickey. The place offers such a nice, cozy atmosphere.

We went with a party of 6. Service was good. The hostess was friendly and the waiter came over immediately. Food also came out very quickly. There were a couple of bright spots in the food and a couple of not so good dishes. The Ahi Tuna was cooked perfectly & was incredibly fresh. The salad it came with was... More

Four of us went here to eat following the recommendations of a person from the timeshare. We saw that the reviews were mixed, but overall we enjoyed our meals. Three of us got the special which was a grilled mahi with pineapple mango salsa. It was very good. One other in our party got a pineapple teriyaki chicken, which he... More

We stopped for lunch by happenstance while exploring the north side of Kauai. We sat by the open area facing the mountain which was gorgeous. It did take a little while to get our order in and apparently the kitchen was backed up. However our waitress was as sweet as can be and the fish and chips was great. They... More

Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.
