We live part time in Princeville and have eaten here before..... . For a month we have been waiting for Kauai Ono to reopen at their new location. Today was the day....this was their first day back and as before.... the night was outstanding. Their new location made for another memorable dinner. Great Service, Great Food and Great Location !!... More

This was a great choice for dining out on our most recent trip to Kauai. The food and the service were both excellent! I would recommend this unique dining experience to anyone.

We had an amazing night tasting Jack fruit for the first time, bread fruit and butterfish. The picnic tables were cozy and we met some great people. My husband and I were both in the hospitality industry and we highly recommend this dining experience.

We picked this place for my 40th birthday dinner and it was so incredibly perfect. The food is hands down the best we had on the island. Also, it's such a cool vibe. The chef is talented and approachable. Make reservations and go!

Honestly speaking we expected a bit more, given the excellent reviews here. The Burgers are OK, but not worth driving the whole island to get a bite of them. If you're passing by, it's OK, but again, not really the best ones you can get here.

We were surprised and delighted to experience our first Farm to Table gourmet dinner with Kauai ONO. This five course meal under a beautiful white sail in a park on a balmy fall evening in Hanalei was one of our favorite meals. Justin Smith, Chef, has a unique talent for combining the flavors of the island. The staff presents each... More

I have been wanting to try Kauai Ono based on many friends of mine telling me to try it. This trip I had a great excuse as we came for a friend's birthday. ( I told them it was her birthday via text but no mention of it at the table) We made reservations for a Thursday night but they... More

Decided to try Kauai Ono based on the numerous good reviews on Trip Advisor and elsewhere. I made our reservation on line a couple of weeks before our trip as they are only operating 2 nights a week (On Yelp....you have to leave a credit card to hold it...if you don't cancel within a certain time frame you will be...

Our first night on Kauai, we went to dinner at Kauai Ono. My husband and I are very familiar with chefs tasting menus and often enjoy that type of experience when we travel. We arrived on time and brought our bug spray as other reviewers had posted it was a necessity. It was and we promptly left our table before... More
