High End Restaurant

Very good food & nice atmosphere. Very pricy wine list & menu. Act like they are the Ritz, but it's only a Westin Timeshare. A lot of places in Lahaina or Kapaluha give you more bang for the buck.

Although the dinner was delicious, the service was not what we were used to. The Monday night crowd was light yet, the wait staff was not attentive. Examples, include waiting until BOTH the salad and entree were half consumed to inquire whether ground pepper or cheese was desired. As a Starwood owner on the property, we were entitled to a...

allergy friendly provided you speak directly with the chef. Tables overlooked koi pond and could see the sunset as well. Pricey but worth every morsel. It was our one meal splurge for the week.

The risotto crusted fish was prepared with skill. The coating was crisp while the fish was moist and tender. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We had an enjoyable meal.

Service and food were excellent. Chicken piccata with lemon and roasted caper sauce was delicious and the beet and arugula salad is a fresh and tasty starter.

we celebrated a 40th birthday and they were very accommodating and made the night super special, even with kids. We asked for the private room so the kids can have more space and that was wonderful. The food was amazing.

really good food but found our lobster cabonara to be too salty. Everything else we had was delicious and in a great atmosphere.

You would expect a restaurant in a classy place like a Westin Resort would be top notch. Not so. Dining with my family, the service was spottey at best; and took forever to deliver drinks. Their entrees are pricey but not up to standard. The Kona Lobster and fettucine was a lot of pasta and damn little evidence that a... More

The Pulehu was a very nice evening restaurant at the Westin Villas. We especially enjoyed the Calamari, as the diameter of the pieces were as large as a mozzarella stick. There was a good wine selection also.
