We ate here twice in the last five years. Both times the servers were rude and snobby, the service was slow, and the food was terrible. We won't be giving it another chance.

If you've been to the one in Maui already, this one doesn't compare when it comes to food and ambiance. For the most part, the menu is pretty much the same. Service is still excellent though. Nice upstairs deck with sunset views. Casual setting. Probably a little too casual for the $50 plate range. FOOD: *TAHITIAN STYLE ONO CEVICHE -... More

We tried several things each of which we enjoyed. We started with the Ono ceviche and crab cakes which were both great. My husband had their fish special and I got the macadamia encrusted fish and we shared them. They were both amazing! Though we were both so full we couldn't say no to the coconut creme brulee. I also... More

We had just finished up a zipline tour that had taken us all through the woods and above the trees in midland Kauai and at the end of the tour we asked our guide, Julio, if there were any really good restaurants around. He metioned a few but this was the closest and we were starving so we picked Merrimans.... More
