Lovely setting, excellent food

The Kauai Grill is the main restaurant at the St. Regis resort, and it is situated overlooking the ocean to the west, which means that at dinner you can get a gorgeous view of the sunset, as we did. The dining room is quiet, comfortable, and nicely appointed. I liked the food a lot. It was... read more

I decided to disregard the write up in my guidebook on Kauai Grill, and I shouldn't have. Let me start by saying the view is spectacular. You have panoramic views of Hanalei - we got there early so we got a great table. Overall, I left dissatisfied though. The meal was fine - but not memorable. I ordered the tasting... More

We decided to make our last night on Kauai special and dined at the Kauai Grill. We had a table by the window overlooking the bay--a perfectly beautiful view of the mountains, water, boaters, and evening surfers. We chose the five course set menu with wine pairings.

So we did the tasting menu - I can't stop talking about it. The Lonely Planet review of this place is bang on. Every dish is RI-DI-CULOUSLY good. Don't miss out. It is worth the money. The view is amazing. Try and get a table near the window. You won't regret it.

I can't say that I enjoyed my dinner here, but maybe it's just me. Sunset was obscured by rain and clouds and a nice one may have made all the difference, as no doubt it is a spectacular feature on a nice night. The restaurant is generally too dark for my taste, but that is a common complaint of mine.... More

A nicely designed room - elegantly laid out, and with the wonderful views you expect from this location. Average service and average food - really that's all you can say.
