I was so looking forward to seeing the St. Regis Princeville resort, since this was where we were booked for our honeymoon until Hurricane Iniki diverted us to The Big Island instead, an island we absolutely loved. When we arrived for our dinner at the Kauai Grill, I was surprised at how the resort did not look or feel very... More

What an awesome experience. From the warm greeting by the maitre'd to the excellent service the evening was magnificent. We dined just prior to sunset and had a fantastic view of the setting sun with whales playing in Hanalei Bay. The food was some of the best we had during our two week stay on Kauai. This proved to be... More

This place does not have any visual appeal. The decor was plain and boring. I did not care for the seating, half the table is a round booth and the other half with heavy chairs. It was hard to get in & out of the the booth and the tables were too close to each other. It was very loud... More

This is THE high end restaurant on the island. It is a Jean Georges restaurant with excellent food - expensive but worth it. Lovely Hanalai Bay views from cliff tip St Regis Hotel.

First of all, THE VIEW. Beautiful, it really doesn't get any better than this. I highly recommend booking your reservation for around sunset, it will be well worth it. Secondly, THE SERVICE. It was impeccable. We visited Kauai Grill twice during our recent stay on Kauai. The first evening my server Sequoia was very professional and even gave my husband... More

I've dined at several Jean George restaurants and was surpised at the poor service and quality of the food. Came here in February for my birthday and had the tasting menu. One of my favourite starters at Jean George restaurants is the salmon (sometimes tuna) crispy rice. This one was greasy, fishy and cooked for too long. The Onaga(over cooked)... More

First time back to Princeville since the change from Sheraton to the St Regis. Heard go things about Kauai Grill so we planned a dinner during our stay. The food was well prepared and creative from our experience. We had salmon sashimi as a starter which was excellent. Nice salmon, fun crispy rice cake and chipotle emulsion instead of wasabi....

I am staying at the St. Regis and took my mother and sister out for dinner. I had the filet mignon (very dry-but I figured if I complained they would come up with some convoluted reason that I had not had dry aged beef or something like that.) The bill was $250.00 Everyone had water, one appetizer, 4 entrees (a... More

My husband and I made a reservation at Kauai Grill because we thought that it would be our one nice dinner out while we were here on vacation. Unfortunately, we did not have the experience we were hoping for. The hotel is so beautiful, large open foyer with light colors and fountains. There are high ceilings and flower arrangements of...
