Located on a hill overlooking Wailea beach/coast we sat a table in the garden. It was almost like a private dining room from 10 under the stars. Very nice. We decided to get the prix fix dinner deal for $75. It consists of picking one antipasta, one primi, and one secondi dish. I had the seared sea scallops for my... More

We had high hopes for this dinner as we had numerous recommendations. Unfortunately we found rather brisk unattended service. We felt somewhat neglected as all the tables around us were spoken to by the chef & we were studiously ignored. No one bothered to explain the specials - in fact we did not know there were any until we heard... More

My friends and I to travel the world extensively and eat at the finest restaurants found two piece to be truly extraordinary. We had the tasting menu and Chef Chris blew us all away!

My wife and I decided to spend a week in Wailea, Maui for our 36th anniversary. As part of the celebration, we tried to find restaurants where the quality of food, service, and atmosphere were good to great, but not necessarily the most expensive. We decided Capische would be one of the places we would try. When we arrived the... More

My husband and I ate here one evening during our honeymoon. I asked the concierge at our hotel what would be a nice place to enjoy the sunset and have a romantic dinner, and this was the suggestion. The menu has a three course pre-fixe menu (and other entrees) that you can also add a wine pairing with every course.... More

We heard good things about this restaurant from our friends, but we were very disappointed by our visit. We were a party of seven and had to get "permission" from the chef for some in our party to order a la carte vs. the 3 course menu. The food was OK but not worth the inflated prices. The wait staff... More

We ate at all the best restaurants in Waleia and Capische was the best! We were seated in the romantic garden with a gorgeous view. We couldn't see any other tables. Our service was great and our food was amazing! We highly recommend!!

I absolutely loved this restaurant. The food was exceptional. Outdoor seating on the main level balcony offers a gorgeous sunset view. You may want to bring a pashmina/light sweater on cooler nights in the winter/spring months. It is a small restaurant and reservations are highly recommended. I loved it so much that I went back again. I hope you will... More

This was by far the best romantic dinner We've ever had. I made reservations and requested a nice spot since it was our wedding night for just the two of us. They gave us the best spot in the garden. We were told celebrities ate there. The Grilled Caesar salad is amazing and we each had the hanging beef. It... More

We are in Maui for our 5th wedding anniversary and choose to spend our anniversary dinner here after reading all the reviews about it being romantic and the good food. I made the reservation for 8pm thinking that would be the perfect time - that we'd catch the sunset during our meal. I didn't count on the sunset in Maui... More
