Perfect views- excellent outdoor seating

1) Get one of the outdoor tables at the far right of the establishment - best views, most secluded, if you prefer a quieter experience. 2) There is a corkage fee on Kauai- so if you drink wine sneak over to the Wine shop in the Princeville Center (2 miles away right where you came in) and grab a... read more

Me and my wife ate here all 5 days during our stay at the St Regis. It really is your option if you don't want room service for breakfast. Don't bother eating inside, that's crazy talk! Get a table outside near the edge of the water or railing. It's the best view at breakfast I have ever had. We were... More

The location of the restaurant is wonderful and the setting almost the best you can ask for. However I wished the food/service matched. Breakfast was expensive although a decent selection of options on the buffet. The breakfast menu is innovative but reads better than presented. Our coffee sat empty for the majority of breakfast as well as water and juice.... More

For a restaurant in the St. Regis we found our dining experience to be underwhelming. The service was slow and forgetful as I continually had to pour our own wine and bottled water. Apps and Mains were OK but nothing special which is disappointing given the Prices!!! The view of the Pacific at sunset is to die for.

This is an excellent location for a dinner sunset. The outdoor seating is perfect. The menu options are unique and appreciated with the opportunity to mix and match additions and enhancements. The service exercised a nice balance of attentiveness without annoyance. And of course, the food was awesome.

Flatebread so bland that you wonder if a child is the chef. Moreover, very expensive for what you get.

Meals were outrageously expensive at the St. Regis, but this one was totally worth it. Breakfast on the terrace was pretty special.

Great view of you get there early enough. The food was tasty but they couldn't get any of the basics right. We couldn't sit outside even though we had a reservation. They forgot to bring bread plates and they forgot to refill our water. The service was slooooooooow, we waited an hour to get our food even though the place... More

Variety of seafood was amazing. Loved it. Good choices and quality was superb. Recommend it 100%. Loved that they had a kids table with Mac and cheese, sliders, fries, rice krispie treats, little chicken pieces, overall great!

The view was absolutely stunning. Will not disappoint if you time it with sunset and it's not raining. Bread and special butter was amazing. Filet and lobster ok. I grill better mahi mahi. Super disappointing for the prices. Great desert though! Still a wonderful evening and I say go if you don't mind spending $200 for 2 for a mediocre... More
