Birthday Dinner

We enjoyed our delicious dinner, the food was great. There were two of us celebrating our birthday but the waiter was not aware and only gave one of us the special birthday dessert. It was an amazing cotton candy extravaganza!

We have eaten at Red Salt on prior visits to Poipu. Well I am pleased to report that food and service are still at the top of the list. Service was impeccable and our waiter was great. On this trip we have eaten there twice, once for dinner and once for breakfast. Dinner visit. Everything was cooked to perfection. Highlights... More

Try the pineapple souffle pancakes - could have eaten those every meal! Fresh fruit, nice servings, attentive staff, comfortable surroundings, and open air feel to the dining area. Absolutely lovely.

The food is great here, pricy but worth it for a special dinner. The dishes are creative and fun, especially the paella. It is located inside of a hotel that was recently renovated and is one of the better ones on the island. All in all it is a great place.

This restaurant was inviting and the food was wonderful. Our waiter, Chris, was perhaps the best waiter I've ever had. He did not mind describing dishes which had ingredients I was unfamiliar with and made me feel comfortable the entire time. He had an eye for detail and noticed things that I would otherwise not notice, like a tea candle... More

Our waiter was great an made wonderful suggestions. I had the mahi and it was delicious. The beet and melon appetizer was ok. The presentation was beautiful. Try the Kauai slaw that was awesome. The martini was huge!! There were four of us and everyone was thrilled with their meal. The ambiance is fair. It's in the hotel lobby. But... More

Initially, the restaurant space seems like an afterthought, as it sits just beyond the reception area, but once there, it is a bright and lovely dining room. Paul, the maitre 'd will give you a warm welcome and put you in the hands of his knowledgeable staff. All very courteous, they will explain the menu, the specials, the drinks, the... More

Red Salt is a nice restaurant inside a hotel which made it a little difficult to find at first. It was great that they were still seating people past 9 PM since we arrived for a late night dinner. The food portions are small yet exquisite. We had the Red Salt Poke as an appetizer, Organic Beet and Hawaiian Melon... More
