After 17 door to door hours of traveling we hoped to have a decent dining experience at the Ritz. Though we were on the early side, maybe 6ish, and a fairly empty room, they sat us in the pool bar area adjacent. Our server brought our drinks and then disappeared for more than 20 min. Just as we were standing... More

We spent a week in Maui staying in Wailea and travelling widely around the island . Our dinner at the Banyan Tree was the best meal of our vacation. The food was delicious and well-presented. The service was excellent. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

Located in the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, with unobstructed views of the ocean and Molokai. An easy walk downstairs if you are staying at the Ritz Carlton with no need to drive anywhere. Good/extensive wine list. Food was fresh and well prepared. Portions were small, but they bring a huge basket of water crackers and butter with Hawiaan sea salt so... More

Highly recommend coming here before sunset to see the views. Food was spectacular. Service was nice but could have been friendlier.

Accommodating. Delicious. The menu and wine list were extensive, with many new choices to tempt the palette. After an in-depth chat with the sommelier and a couple of samples, we chose the Biale Black Chicken Zinfandel. Between the Foie Gras, Blackened Octopus, seared scallops and filet mignonette, we were treated to an exotic romp through the taste buds. The veggies... More

The service was excellent, although the brought the food a little too fast... no break in between courses. I'd like to see them slow that down. I enjoyed the atmosphere in the evening enough that I went back for drinks at the bar each night. The cost was reasonable for the quality.

Food was the best we have had on Maui. Friendly service, attentive staff. Great choice of wines. Food fresh and well presented. A bit pricey but was a treat for our last night on Maui.

My husband and I were lucky enough to celebrate our 3rd anniversary at this lovely restaurant. The service is friendly and extremely efficient. We both tried the Mahi Mahi which was exquisite. We also started with a crispy, fresh salad that was delicious. For dessert I ordered the sorbet and the plate came decorated for our anniversary with a sweet... More

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely three course meal while overlooking the lush gardens and the ocean. We chose to dine early to take advantage of the view before the sun set. The restaurant offered a 3-course set menu with wine pairings for the early seating. Portions were generous and we had the opportunity to try six dishes between... More
