Pretty fine food, great views, good service

A tasty Italian in an extremely nice setting and intriguing building. Because of a group dinner, we only had a short menu with a single veggie choice (kabocha gnocchi) but good overall. The service was careful but always present and quick. A good address.

On the advice of my travel agent, we tried Capische? at the Wailea Hotel. We made reservations to watch the sunset, which did not disappoint. Dinner however was a different story. Entrees were $45-75 but not spectacular (except the ahi tuna which was quite good). Service was slow and pretentious. I love my travel agent but I'll be letting her... More

Me and some friends had such a magical dinner. The food was top notch, delicious drinks, and the service was unbelievable. Very comforting energy through out the restaurant with Elisabeth as the icing on the cake. She instantly made us feel right at home, and encouraged our magical experience, in our new favorite restaurant. We love it!

If you're looking to 'fill up' quick and cheap-this isn't it. However, if you're looking for that rare high end experience, don't miss out going here at least once. Our server Candace, was extremely knowledgable with every item on the menu and took the time to describe each one to us. The caprese salad was divine, the mozzarella is flown... More

We dined recently at Capische during our stay at the Hotel Wailea. I was looking forward to the meal, but left very disappointed. The service was poor and the food and beverages overpriced, based on our experience. First, I will say that we were seated with an amazing view to see the sunset (which is one positive). But, that is... More

We stayed at Hotel Wailea for the week which was great. We started out at Spago for dinner and then ate at Capische our last night. Both were great, but I'd have to say that Capische out shined Spago (and was a little cheaper 😀). My favorite was the sweet potato and duck confit, the pasta special for the night.

My wife and I were staying at one of the local resorts and were looking for a change of pace. We decided to try Capische and we were very happy with the choice. Great view from this hilltop restaurant! The catch of the day was grilled to perfection and came with locally grown fresh vegetables. They even called me the... More

After an awful experience a few years ago we decided to give it another go during Restaurant Week (and after a favourable review from friends). While the service was much better this time around it was almost over the top and then lacked at the same time. We were guessing our server was fairly new to the serving role. We... More

Well we've just had a night in Capische in the Wailea hotel and what a great night. The partridge starter was lovely as was the truffle risotto which my wife had. For the main course I choose the veal chop and my wife the Tuna, she made a great choice, mine was a little less successful as the first two... More
