We weren't planning to eat here, but were staying on property and a friend gave us a gift card for my wife's birthday, so figured we'd celebrate with a special meal. I mentioned the birthday when we made the reservation and we were seated upon arrival at a nice table near the windows. Service and food were excellent. We had... More

We went here with a party of six people and were seated in one of the booths looking out to the water. The view is spectacular that's for sure but the booth was uncomfortable and felt cramped.

Let me start off by saying the service was excellent . The staff was right on . We made our reservation early , to make sure we had a window seat with a view to remember . The steak , the lobster , and the pork chops to die for . Worth every penny .

Aloha David V, I am happy to hear how much you truly enjoyed your entrée selections. On Kauai we are able to source our beef from Makaweli, a small production ranch on the West side of the island. With minimal production being done they are able to focus and ensure the products are of the highest quality which allows our... More

Excellent food and service, but go early if you want a seat by the wndows. Located in the St. Regis Princeville, the Kauai Grill is their flagship restaurant. All items were well prepared and the service was exceptional.

What can I say except wow. The views were almost as good as the food and the view was spectacular so what's that say about the food. The staff was friendly and attentive. Can't wait until next time.

Chose the restaurant specifically because of the vegetarian tasting menu for a special birthday celebration. In all honesty, it is the first time I have seen my vegetarian family member truly enjoy a fine dining meal, I mean, seriously cleaning the plate! The ahi tuna was perfectly cooked, and the lobster in chestnut sauce was the best lobster I've tasted.... More

Hawaii is not really a culinary destination and although there are many good restaurants exceptional meals are rare. We have been to the Kauai grill a umber of times since it opened, most recently last week. The food was exceptional.

Overall the food was wonderful, and the service was polished but down to earth. We especially loved 2 fish dishes (entrees) we had. We just had 2 small gripes, I guess coming from years of fine dining you come to expect certain things. So these are little things, but they all add up to overall experience. One is that they...
