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.

I can't say that I enjoyed my dinner here, but maybe it's just me.

I'm trying really hard to not cry right now. My husband and I came to Kauai to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary which was today, May 22nd. We came in 2004 for our honeymoon and again in 2013.

From the moment we walked in, they treated us like royalty. Had I ever been there before, I would have gotten a booth but our ocean from table for 2 was perfect. I really thought the food exceptional. I had the rib eye steak, cooked perfectly, served hot and with creamy mashed potatoes...yummy. Normally I only eat half my steak... 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. Of course, above average prices...but you expect that. One major gripe - when will establishments start enforcing their own dress codes? The elegance of the setting was ruined on the... More

Aloha Great Expectations, Thank you for your recent review about your experience at the Kauai Grill. I apologize that we fell short of exceeding your expectations. Our culinary leaders source only the utmost quality ingredients, that on occasion will demand a higher price point. However, the quality of food and dining experience should also be perfectly paired.

We come to Kauai every year but the long drive from the South Shore makes this not an option for us. This year we booked a night at Princeville specifically so we could finally have dinner here. As big Jean-Georges fans (NYC specifically and dine there regularly), we had high expectations. First, the view is spectacular and the wait staff... More

this was the priciest dinner we had on the island during our stay. I don't mind expensive meals, but I was left a little underwhelmed. The meal/food was top notch. The service wasn't bad, but not 5 star either, and a giant group of 25-30 people seemed to want to make sure everyone knew they were dining in the hotel... More

Even if you're not staying at the St. Regis this restaurant is definitely worth going to for breakfast. A bit expensive ($39/pp) but well worth the price!

A JG inspired restaurant, for those who know what "JG" means. It is classy, expensive, with the menu typical of such an establishment. Views out the western facing window are excellent, displaying both the stunning mountains and the Hanalei Bay. Sunset every night.. Steak (filet) is very good, $59 for approximately 10 ounces. Sea bass dinner also very good, $46... More
