One of our party asked about vegetarian options and the concierge was very gracious and went out of his way to make sure there were lots of options. He presented various dishes that the chef... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my evening at David Paul's. The fish was cooked to perfection, our server was excellent, and the overall feel of the place was very relaxed and casual-elegant. I appreciated the fact that the chef/owner took the time to visit his customers, and I plan on eating here again the next time I am in Maui. I want... More

We heard her make the reservation and gave us a confirmation. When we arrived at the restaurant, they said that they had no record of the reservation. They were... More

Our daughter was trying to escape carbs and had to send her plate back as it arrived with her fish sitting on top of a mound of mashed potatoes. They got rid of those, and then she actually started eating this Pacific Salmon only to... More

The person who sat us was rude. We found out later that it was a bus person. The salad we ordered was described as having truffles on top. There were none. The entree was cold. We sent it back. They did not remake it. They heated the plate. It was still cold. The waiter was nice, but he did not... More
