Kauai Grill is a comfortable yet elegant hideaway with sweeping views of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. The seasonal menu is composed of a wide selection of hand-crafted dishes created from flavors found here on the Garden Island of Kauai with the highest quality of meats and freshest local fish available. Simply grilled preparations accompanied by bold condiments anchor the Kauai Grill experience at The St. Regis Resort Princeville.

Let's start by stating the obvious. This is not a cheap restaurant. You can pay for two ok meals or one great meal at Kauai Grill. It cost close to $175 for my girlfriend and I and that included one drink for each of us, one appetizer, two entrees and one dessert and it was worth it. We got the... read more

We had a fantastic dinner! Started with some interesting cocktails and moved on to a bottle of vino from their surprisingly well stocked and diverse wine list. Our 2 appetizers were awesome, the best being the marinated grilled octopus. My grilled fish entree was superb and the sauce was quite good. The staff were experienced and enthusiastic (who wouldn't be... More

This restaurant has THE best view on the entire island. BUT...it's also probably THE most expensive restaurant on the island, and the food is....well, do you like small portions, and EVERYTHING a-la-carte? We're talking $18 salads, $10 mashed potatoes, $61 steaks, and $9 french fries. Don't plan on getting out of here for less than $300 for a couple. If... More

I recently had dinner at the Kauai Grill at the St Regis. I never order chicken in a restaurant as I prefer to go for something I wouldn't eat at home.

A little bit of food for a whole lot of money is the basic philosophy at the St. Regis Kauai's in-house restaurant. The food is, however, very, very good, and the bar (though not the restaurant) boasts one of the most enviable views in all of Hawaii. Service is attentive, and the menu extensive. Some may find the surrounding ambience... More

Went for a nice dinner and tried the tasting menu with wine pairings. Courses ranged from good to excellent.
