Great service and meal

This was a red carpet treatment from the minute the chef greeted us as we walked in the door! The service was amazing and the food was wonderful. We were very tired and it was a great way to relax at the end of a busy day.

This is a great restaurant. The food is farm to table and very good. Service was excellent, but you do need reservations. We enjoyed the atmosphere in this restaurant and the only negative is that it was so good that I ate way too much, ha ha.

This is a cool tree that takes up an entire park. They often have vendor exhibits going on in the park as well. It's definitely worth a stop and its FREE! And while you are there, you might as well do some shopping in Lahaina - lots to offer.

Rather unique Banyan tree in the town square. I have seen big tree before at Edison's summer home in Florida but this Maui tree is stretched out and manipulated into a fascinating maze.

One night was because we were staying here anyhow, the second because our meals were that good, along with the service. I like steak, and the filet was a good cut and done medium rare, just like I like it. The bisque was great, from local pumpkin, could have had two servings of that! The vegetarian choices met with approval... More

We had dinner at this restaurant and the food and service really exceeded our expectations. It was expensive but worth it. The combination of food and sauce was perfect.
