Great dinner! We had a party of 10 people and they did a great job of serving us. Excellent food for adults and children, drinks were superb! Wonderful location and if you time your reservation just right you can enjoy the beautiful sunset and shopping before you eat.

One of the few places in the world that I enjoy eating outside. Went there on a regular night and it was crowded, but the wait was worth it ( 10 minutes ). The food is excellent and the service is great. The staff is right on top of it. The outside seating is outstanding with not a bad seat... More

The tradeoff to eating outside at many of Maui's ocean front restaurants is that you get a more "casual" menu. This is the case at Leilani's as well, where you are looking at burgers, sandwhiches, fish and chips, etc. for dinner. That is fine, but I would like the option to order more upscale items from the main dining room... More

Great selection children's menu and views. Get their before 5PM or expect to wait an hour or more. The service was exceptional. The prices are what they are are in this area but this place was worth the price

Ate here 3 times during our vacation to Maui! The food and location were excellent. I'm not normally adventurous in trying fish but tried the fish tacos and they were the best meal I had on our trip! Their hula pie is excellent and can be shared between 2-4 people!

We ate lunch downstairs twice; one had fish tacos both times....the best tacos the first time...good but not great the second (busier?). The best Hula Pie the first time...good but a little melted the second (busier?). Service the best the first time...slow the second time (?). Still the best we had at Kaanapali.

My photo can speak for itself, except to say that the lobster comes from an island between South America and Africa and lives 2000 feet below the ocean surface. It is only sold in 10 cities-Paris and London included. Two lobster tails, with basmati rice and veggies-I can't begin to describe the awesomeness! Worth the splurge. Our table was front... More
