We spent a good amount of time looking at the beautiful north shore but we finally got the perfect view once we got to this restauarnt. It's angled perfectly right at the vista and raised up so it's perfectly unobstructed. This has to be one of the worlds best views. With that said, who cares about the food??!! We got... More

Came here for a special family celebration. They gave us a beautiful table at the apex of the courtyard terrace; Fantastic! Unfortunately, it went downhill thereafter. The waiter pushed us to order. We relented to the pressure and ordered some appetizers of drinks & two sushi / sashimi plates to share. Then taking some time to enjoy the BEAUTIFUL scene... More

We had breakfast every morning on the Makana Terrace and it was one of our best parts of the trip. The tables were outside and the view was breathtaking. We could see the beach and the mountains. In the morning, we could see the fog in the mountains and a few waterfalls after the rain. It was absolutely gorgeous! We... More

Our family group of 9 enjoyed a beautiful dinner at sunset on the Makana Terrace in June 2014. We had decided to eat at the St Regis on our last night after seeing the restaurants and the show from across the way at our resort, the Hanalei Bay Resort. Even though we knew the view would be magical.... We were... More

There cannot be two opinions about the great setting. Food is decent but not worth the price. St.Regis should offer better quality for the prices charged. It is worth the experience for the setting and I wish that the food was better.

The view here is fantastic. It is a lovely place to relax. The food here was average. The service was a little slow for breakfast. Lots of families were there with small children so that may have contributed to the slowness.

This is a restaurant not to be missed on the North shore - call ahead and book around one hour before sunset and you will not notice the food and service, which are pretty good, as you watch the sun traverse the mountains - it is amazing even for one that has been to 61 countries. The Sushi is excellent... More

Came here for breakfast. While the view was amazing - the food was ok. It was a simple breakfast with not as much of a selection as I expected for the $35/per person price.

We have eaten at this spectacular restaurant before at the St. Regis. We even had a run in with 007 himself this time . The Ahi was fabulous while the Makana sushi roll as appetizer is highly recommended. Perfect view. The ultimate pictures of the sunset.
