Good food, better view

The location and view are remarkable here. My husband and I stayed at the St. Regis for several days so ate here multiple times and for varying meals (brunch, lunch, dinner). The food was all very good, and the service was fast and thorough. The prices are another story...

I called to get reservations for 10 people for a family member's birthday. They not only got us a table, but were very accommodating. Please note that I had to call the concierge at the St Regis as Open Table does not do reservations of 10. We were not staying at the St Regis - but that didn't seem to... More

It is worth the flight from anywhere in the world to experience the view from the Makena Terrace. Breakfast taro pancakes were a first for me - very tasty. Walk to the beach behind the St. Regis is a worthwhile trek.

Exceeded our expectations - we knew the view would be phenomenal, but having read other reviews, we were uncertain about the rest. We were not hotel guests, but received gracious and remarkably friendly service from the moment we drove up until we left. The food was described beautifully by Vaughn and other wait staff and was prepared and served delightfully.... More

After booking a table for the champagne brunch, and reading the menu, I had got my expectations pretty high. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the place, but the food was not just THAT spectacular. But the view is. One of the most gorgeous places to eat! I thought the setting would feel a little more intimate, but it felt... More

After reading previous reviews, I was really excited to eat here, hoping to get a first class meal on the island. Service that evening was at a crawl. I don't know if they were short handed or what, but our waitress (when we did see her) was running around like a chicken with her head cut off, holding a bus... More

Nice dinner but too many clouds to see sunset but this is the best place I heard to view it. Food was fine and so was service.

Our family came here four years ago and were so impressed, we made a point of it to return on our last day in paradise. You always save the best for last. The food, the view and service were excellent. On this trip we saw several sunsets on the Big Island and Kauai. It was difficult to choose the best,... More

Unsurpassed view of Hanalei Bay each morning for breakfast. And a breakfast buffet that was everything it should be. There was an omelet bar which we used, and then a full range of breakfast options from scrambled eggs, fresh Hawaiian fruits, pastries, bacon, sausage, breads, oatmeal, smoked salmon, pancakes and waffles with basically any topping you want. Plus lots of... More

Lovely setting and the food was quite good - better than on prior visits when it was simply ok -we changed our reservation at the last minute but hostess was wonderful in finding us a table outside - but our empty cocktail glasses stayed on our table all evening and at no time did they pour more wine for us...
