Makana Terrace Sunday Brunch

We asked for seating inside because the heat and humidity were especially high that day. We still had a wonderful view. The brunch had everything our party of 7 and different tastes desired. We had two small children and they were treated as special as we were.There was even a "Keiki Bar". The food... read more

I dined here with my mother, we were really looking forward to splurging here. The view was incredible, the service a bit slow, but very nice/friendly. As for the food and drinks.....I do expect to pay at this level of establishment. $17 for a kettle one martini, $13 for a glass of Sauvignon Blanc (small wine glass, small pour). So... More

We've been to this restaurant several times and have loved it, especially the spectacular view. However, on our last visit this week, we had a terrible experience. There was some sort of unexpected occurrence and the wait between salad and entree was more than an hour. During that time, the waitress never showed her face, and when she finally did... More

It's at the St Regis so quality is expected. It was my birthday dinner and the restaurant was aware of this. Seating outside on the terrace was breathtaking, drinks were delicious and the spicy tuna and pork rib appetizers were probably the best my fiancée and I have ever had. But that's where the start of a great meal ended.... More

This was our third Sunday brunch at the Makana Terrace in a of couple years. This buffet has always been great in selection and quality and this visit was no exception. It was our food highlight of the week. The waitstaff was very attentive and made sure we were never asking for mimosa refills...they just happened! If you are a... More

We enjoyed the Sunday brunch! The dessert table was spectacular. Great views on the outside lanai of Hanalei Bay.

2 adults and 2 teens dining here in August. We made a last minute reservation at 5:30 for 6:00. Probably didn't actually need a reservation. Our seat was ok, but the best ones are against the rail where everyone will have a view. The view was very nice. We were around the corner from where the sun was setting so... More

While staying with my husband and 17 year old daughter at the St Regis for 6 days at the end of July, we had three breakfasts and one dinner at the Makana Terrace. The breakfast buffet which was around $35 per person was fine but certainly no buffet is worth that price. You do get an unparalleled view of Hanalei... More

We had played golf and then wanted to enjoy an early Monday evening dinner. We asked for an outside terrace table to be able to see the awesome sunset and since we arrived as they opened at 5:30 we were given a great view table. At sunset inside diners came out to take photos of the ocean and sun going... More
