Service and food was excellent. Meal was expensive. But well worth the dinning experience. We were made to feel very special. Ocean View too!

Ate here on our last night in Kauai . Nice set up and ambiance but the service was just so so. The portion is not that big which I like but i have to say it is over price. I prefer Dolphin across from this restaurant.

Obviously we were seated in a booth. It has high copper walls, which blocks the view and makes for a very warm environment, as it is all open, with fans only. Asked to be moved at 5:30 PM and was told all the empty tables were reserved, which was 75% of the restaurant. When we left at 7:00 there were... More

Mom and I loved this place. The food is truly gourmet and I think they make the best Mai Tai in Poipu. I liked the feeling of space and a great view.

We tried to eat here and requested a wait time. We were told 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, we checked on our time and were told it would be at least another 30 minutes because the kitchen was backed up. There were several large tables in our view where people had been lingering over their tables, food boxed, just talking,... More

We have been patrons of the original Merriman's on the big island for many years and LOVE the food, atmosphere and service. We thought this would be a similar experience but were sadly disappointed. Let me clearly state that the two servers we had were excellent. We had reservations at 6:30. Although the restaurant was almost empty, we were seated... More

We ate here on the second to last night of our vacation and the food was so good we came back on the next and our last night. The menu has a great variety of food and there was so much I wanted to try! The staff was very friendly and service was excellent. Highly recommend - we thought it... More

My husband and I had dinner at Merriman's our first night in Poipu. It is located in a pleasant shopping village, in a second floor space that is a bit removed from the crowd. The space is beachy but upscale and very comfortable. The views were not as great as many other restaurants in the area, but the designers did... More

With uninspiring views for a 2nd floor location, the attraction is a strong reputation for fresh seafood. Despite a reservation, the hostess was unforgivably pretentious, forcing a wait intended to create a bar bill. Otherwise, the service was acceptable. The Uku, ordered medium rare, was overdone and the mong chong and mahi mahi combination just average. Overall, the meal was... More
