I ordered watercress salad and fried blue crab.. it was NOT good. my family ordered the fish which were good (but all 40+ dollars and not worth the money in my opinon) and the sushi overrated (go to Dolphin restaurant in hanalei for sushi... half the price and more choices)

Beautiful Breakfast buffet as we just got married. You can see my profile photo. Huge selection of self serve breakfast. Warm greetings by a Kekaha, Kauai local and friendly staff. Beautiful view the ocean and mountains. Be sure to explore the hotel after your meal for amazing views!

We came for my birthday dinner. It took so long for the server to come over that we nearly left. She took our drink order then went MIA for a half hour. We asked the busboy to send her over and instead the manager, Frank, came and took our order. My lobster was mealy, so I sent it back and... More

The view was gorgeous, however the prices were steep and we aired over 1.5 hours for our food to be served. The waiter did not check back with us during the long wait. We almost gave up and left!

Everything was excellent. I can't recall ever eating someplace with such beautiful views (sit outside if you can). Wide selection of food. Champagne included with the brunch. Cost $75 per person which was a bit much I thought but I'm quickly coming to the realization that everything costs more than I think it should in Hawaii.

Wow, the views are incredible and breakfast was delicious. We did not do the buffet but ate here every morning while staying at the St. Regis. I had the taro pancakes with macadamia nuts and coconut as least twice, the waffles, and the banana french toast. Ask for the coconut syrup, life changing! I bought 4 bottles of syrup to... More

The view is stunning, especially at sunset. The food was very good, even for the vegetarians in the group, but a little pricey. Service was excellent - very attentive and willing to give small pours to try a few wines before choosing. Altogether a great way to celebrate the end of a wonderful week on this magical isle.

We were fortunate enough to have a table on the far end of the terrace and wow what a spectacular view of the mountains and the sunset, breathtaking! Food was good as well! The sushi was wonderful and a perfect item to share as the sun sets. The onaga was a big a hit as well. Overall a great experience... More

Good to Stop by for Breakfast and Sunset time, food is good but not outstanding, menu has been updated for the better ( I am visiting every year since 2010). Indoor Seating to avoid strong sun's rays during day time and enjoy live hula entertrainment is also a very good option
