Dinner and lunch

We ate at Merriman's twice while on kauai. First night we were on Island for dinner and then for lunch another day. Loved it! Food was excellent each time. Going back.

The food was amazing with the best service in all the island! We got goat cheese and fruit jam appetizer, which is a MUST HAVE! And their lamb chops were to die for. They also have great fish options (their specialty) definitely must visit this again and we'll be back! The only drawback was that the food was way overpriced.

Downstairs is the pizza and burger place–they serve more than just that–with moderate prices and great food. Sitting in the open air rather than the bar gives you a welcome breeze and a chance to people-watch in this upscale mall. Upstairs (Merriman's Poipu) is more of a destination restaurant, with high-end service and high-end prices. And absolutely fantastic food. All... More

TripAdvisor's reviews forewarned us about how expensive the food was but I wanted to try something special during our stay and decided to go anyway. Food was OK, service was OK but did not justify the cost.

Very tasty food. We started with the Pupu taster and really liked the pulled pork quesadilla and poke. My husband and I both ordered fish and it was very fresh and well prepared. The flavors were great. Very pricey. It was about $50 for a small 4-5 oz piece of fish.

Food was really good, however we had to wait ages.. We got pretty annoyed but the waiter was pretty understanding and in the end, we didn't have to pay which was a nice offer. We left a huge tip as it was the right reaction from the Restaurant. I would recommend it to couples, families and individual travellers too.. really... More

Had the pepperoni and sausage pizza. Asked for mushrooms. They were provided for $2.00 more! Pizza was tasty but small. Cesar salad was good but unremarkable. Service was very good!

I had a excellent Lamb Burger ! My Wife had an Ahi Salad that was very good. Atmosphere and service were great. Everyone knew what they were doing, our appetizers and entrées arrived without delay. Most definitely returning here. Hostess was on the ball and helpful.

Restaurant is lovely, the atmosphere is good. The service left something to be desired. I alerted her to a food allergy, which she told me "Oh that's not a real thing." I tried to explain that yes it is a real thing, and having been in the ICU due to an anaphylaxic reaction it is something I'm careful not to... More
