I saw some hit or miss reviews here. Some people love it and some don't. I liked it and thought it was worth the high price. You are in Hawaii. Prices are high for most things. Just tell yourself you deserve it and don't worry about the rest. Order the local fish, it tastes great and is so fresh! I... More

What a treat! We are food snobs, and are very picky on taste and quality, and we were extremely impressed. My husband and I both had the chef's tasting menu--the higher priced on, but I'm not sure what thy called it. The ahi ribbons were perfect, the lobster gnocchi was phenomenal, the red snapper was good, but in my opinion... More

Everything we ordered was amazing. From the ginger margarita, appetizers and main course. Lovely glass of champagne to finish of the meal. The staff were lovely. Pricey but well worth it.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Kauai Grill. I saw a few poor reviews about the food but we thought that the dishes were excellent. The service wasn't great at times but that definitely didn't ruin the meal. I would recommend if you are looking for a nice meal out.

Awesome view and food. I hate Brussel sprouts but the way they made them were unreal. So I helped my wife finish hers. Frank was an amazing waiter. Ask for him as he was the best! Stellar fillet mingon. Unmatched view of Hanalei Bay.

Octopus were bland and chalky. Like frozen and not thawed and cooked correctly. It's supposed to be fine dining but it was pretty poss poor to be honest. Dark, piss taking on the price, went once and would never go again. Stay away.

Food was good, but the service was a huge let down. After the food arrived, it seemed the server had no desire to check back with us. Leave the hotel and seek other outstanding food options...like Hideaway Pizza, the Dolphin, Bar Acuda.

The food here was really very good. Probably the best lobster I have ever had. The atmosphere was also very nice. My only complaint would be that the service was a little off. My wife had to ask for an extra break stick three times because the first two servers forgot to bring it...

Wonderful setting. Expert staff. Horrid ambiance due to uncontrolled crying children. At these prices some restrictions should be placed on dinner companions. How about one needs to be of drinking age? The staff dealt deftly with our complaints and readily produced dessert and bubbles on the house. Excellent touch and much appreciated. Yet it remained that our dinner was disturbed... More

Staying in hotel so we really enjoyed the excellent Chef tasting menu featured along with excellent wine options. Very young children were also dining and many diners found their screeches annoying. A couple next to us even complained to the sommelier. Children too young to control themselves should be discouraged to dine here.
