Come for the view, have a drink, skip the food

We're trying all the big Wailea hotels for lunch. So far this is the worst of three, including the Marriott and Kea Lani. The Four Seasons is next. Sixty dollars for a mediocre sandwich and less than average mahi tacos (not sure the fish was mahi, more like swordfish) is just too much. Really need... read more

We ate here on our first night in Hawaii as I wanted to eat outside but did not want a very sophisticated dining experience when my family was jet lagged. I knew that the reviews were very mediocre but it was the perfect first night dining place for us. The view from dinner was perfect and overlooked the ocean and... More

We had dinner here based on the ratings from an online reservation service. Except for the location, there was very little of note about this restaurant. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. It did not really make up for the nondescript meal.

Worst dining experience ever. The food quality is mediocre and extremely expensive. I ordered a grilled mahi mahi and it was unedible. It looked like a small piece of chicken over boiled broccoli with tomato sauce on the side. The texture was like cardboard and the flavor was bland. The cost of the dish was $30. My gf ordered the...

We had read mixed reviews, and we saw also that this is not a destination restaurant - people from other hotels don't come and eat here. But the food was actually VERY good for a hotel pool restaurant, with lots of choices for kids, vegetarians, meat-eaters, etc. Watermelon bites: terrific and inventive, and a bargain app. Edamame was also very...

Resort eateries are usually a big trap because they have a captive clientèle. It's less the case at the Grand Wailea Maui. Humuhumunukunukuapua’a and to a lesser extent Nick's are destination restaurants. But even Molokini (which is the resort's all-day dining venue) tries a bit harder. The menu is your typical café menu, but 'normal' dishes are cooked well (eg.... More

We have eaten here several times and it is average food. We had a coupon as Hilton Honors members so we went here to eat. Okay food for okay prices. As I have said before, the menus at the Grand Wailea need a serious overhaul.

Had a great experience thanks to the hostess, staff and Manager Eileen whom was attentive and greeted us while enjoying our delicious meals. The restaurant was especially busy, but our wait time to be seated and served was smooth and seamless. Smooth operation, our recommendation is while visiting Maui, the Bistro is a must visit and you'll be treated right... More

I've eaten here a few times over the past 12 years when visiting the spa but staying elsewhere. Three times I tried to get a table by the rail in the afternoon and the hostess took me and plunked me down by the bar. The first two times, I asked to be relocated by the rail with the oceanview and... More
