Staying at the Four Seasons Manele Bay, we caught the shuttle to the sister resort and then walked into Lanai City to dine here. A very nice experience and clearly the best place to dine outside of the resort. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend the Grill.

The only up-scale dining experience in the city, other than the Lodge. Prices are reasonable, nice atmosphere, dining room type setting with a nice little bar in the same room. Everything we had there was excellent.

We always find it interesting that almost always our favorite meal we had on vacation is also not the most expensive. We had an excellent meal and spent about half what we we spending at the resort restaurants.

Beautiful and delicious food with a loud bar. We couldn't hear our server or each other. Due to the acoustics and 3 loud people at the bar.

We were looking forward to our dinner at Lanai City Grille to celebrate our last night on Lanai. We wanted "to step back to plantation times" and enjoy dinner. However, the restaurant which also had a bar just started Friday night happy hours. It was very well attended and people were having a good time. But for the diners, it... More

We dined at Lanai City Grille one night while staying on Lana'i. So very glad we did. We had 10 in our group so made reservations (which are recommended). The service was amazing. When they brought our food out, the entire kitchen staff left the kitchen and each person's plate was placed in front of them at exactly the same... More

When next on Lanai you must eat in this restaurant. It was the old HOTEL during the Dole Pineapple Days used only by the Executives. There is a quaint B&B attached. The ambience is lively, friendly and the food is usually good!

My husband and I dined here in May. It was our third try and last at this restaurant. I really wanted to like it because so many people seem to have good experiences, but unfortunately we never have. Each visit we tried something different: meatloaf, fish, and lastly the vegetarian stack. All of the dishes were average at best. On... More

We stayed at Hotel Lanai and were very excited to eat in the restaurant, Lanai City Grille, while we were in town. The chef is making a name for herself and menu is very diverse with a wide range of options for people with varying tastes. There is a lot of comfort foods as well as the traditional foods of...
