The food here is wonderful. There were four of us and we all tried different things and shared. Also, had some really good drinks. I would give this a five star had it not been for our terrible waiter. He forgot our drinks, then we someone else came, one was missing. We asked the water waiter and she checked on... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is wonderful. I loved the upscale, relaxed feeling to the decor and music. Definitely a romantic atmosphere. Service was excellent and the food was high quality and unique. One of my meal highlights was the chilled melon and tomato soup - I've never had anything quite like it. The pacing of the meal was perfect,... More

Very disappointing. Beautiful view but everything else missed the mark. Shrimp were over cooked and charred. Entrees tasteless. Wait staff looked lost. Manager or maître de walked through restaurant without ever looking at tables or making eye contact. Music was poor. Waiter didn't intro himself and just rushed us through dinner. This was an example of an upscale hotel not... More

You easily pay 250.- USD for 2 pax starter and main course without the wine. For that price you can have a multi-course menu in a 2 Michelin stared restaurant. Quality is not up to the price. Decor is '70s style. I ordered my steak 'medium' and it came 'well done'. Was immediately replaced without any discussion. Manager came to... More

There aren't many "fine dining" restaurants in Kauai, so if you want fancy food, this may be the place for you. It's like you'd expect: there's a good selection of fancy fish and meat dishes for about $45 each, and some good appetizers and drinks. The food quality is pretty good. Even then, though, I wouldn't really recommend going to... More

Came to Kauai to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Wanted to mark the day with a special dinner at this restaurant. Made the reservation a couple of weeks in advance. The concierge at our hotel confirmed our reservation when we arrived at the island asking that we could be seated close to the windows. We ended up being seated four rows... More

We dined at the Kauai Grill a few days ago with my partner and had a fantastic time. We were celebrating a special occasion, and got a lovely table by the window overviewing the bay, which we really appreciated. The wait staff was welcoming, and the manager was very helpful with the wine selection. Last but not least, the food... More

We went to the kauai grill for the farm to table 4 course tasting menu. It was a special menu showcasing produces sourced from the island of kauai only. Upon arrival, the hostess was very smiley, showed us to our table (with a beautiful view on the bay) and got us pre dinner drinks on the way (ginger margarita, a... More

This restaurant is located in the St. Regis Princeville and is one of the only "designer" chef establishments on the island. The menu of this Jean-Georges restaurant does not disappoint. They offer a variety of options for all types of foodies. We did a tasting menu over the holidays and were not disappointed. Everything that was presented to us was... More
