What a memorable dining experience on our last night in Kauai! It was recommended that we make reservations in advance. It was easy to book our preferred time (just before sunset) with 4 days notice. Our server, Jarod, was terrific! My husband has some dietary restrictions, and Jarod worked with the chef to recommend dishes that met our needs. We... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants on Kauai. We shared the Tamimi Tomatoes & Kula Strawberries and then wished we'd ordered two. Their Honey Baked table bread was very tasty. My wife had the Wok Charred Ahi and I has the Macadamia Nut Crusted Monchong, both very very good. The Toasted Coconut Crème Brulée finished the dinner of nicely.

We had great service at the bar while having drinks as we were early for our reservation. Service once at the table was great too. Our server, Tiare, was all smile and very attentive. Her descriptions of the different items on the menu made our choice difficult as everything appeared tasty. We like eating local and Merriman's serves fresh local... More

That's it! We wanted a simpler menu so we ate downstairs and "happy houred" upstairs. The mai tais were good but the margaritas were basically mix and nothing else. Very average. The waiter could have been a little less snooty...the table (koa wood) was pretty, though.

The fat & dirty is a dirty martini with grey goose vodka, straight up, with blue cheese stuffed olives and they are delicious. This time we had the seared ono ($37) and mongchong ($37). We ordered a bottle of wine and our total bill was around $150. Service is always great here and we usually are seated by the windows... More

Visited Merriman's last night after hearing good things. The venue was very nice, but we were huddled in the booth and could take advantage of the view or the breeze. The service was as usual very attentive, but the meal only average. We had greater expectations given the award this restaurant has won.

Whether you wanted a quick burger, pizza or seafood salad downstairs offered up a more casual laid back atmosphere, great for Kids. The local beef and produce made for great quality. Mai tai's where also very good. Upstairs at Merriman's Fish, more upscale setting with a great view of the sunset and ocean. Great value on the wine list and... More

This was the worst meal of our trip. we have enjoyed Merrimans in Kona for years and when we saw they had a casual dining pizza spot we thought we would grab a quick bite. The pizza was under done. My husbands was more like a cracker, no sauce…cold. My salad was small and mediocre for the price. Everything was... More

We went to merriman's for a special occasion. Turns out the food is not special. Among our party we had two different kinds of pizza, a hamburger, and a fancy salad. The hamburger was fine, but you have to order fries separately. The pizza was "meh." And the salad was blah. The setting is nice...plantation feel and clean and festive... More
