This place is (was) awesome! The food is out of this world. Unfortunately they have since closed. But perhaps if the owners continue to see great reviews they'll find another place to open it back up.

"Not your typical SI Italian", this "trendy" trattoria "fills a void" with its "excellent" cuisine served in "fancy" environs by staffers who treat you "really well"; yes, it's "high-priced" for the borough, but it's "crowded" nonetheless – be sure to "make a reservation."

Went for 40th birthday dinner and had a great evening. Food was near perfect, service was attentive without being intrusive. Really felt that they were doing a great job and intended on returning. I understand the family closed this restaurant since our visit. Shame as it was all good for a 4+ star restaurant. Will watch for new owners on... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend. We were staying in Kaanapali and weren't sure we wanted to drive that far for dinner. I'm glad we did. The food was outstanding as was the service. While there, check out the Pacific Whale Foundation for gift and purchase ideas.

Enjoyed our dinner last day of our vacation. Full moon, the moonlight reflecting on the ocean and the harbor view made it so special! Excellent presentation of the food, delicious food! I saw reviews stating they had "closed".... they are open at the Maalea Harbor! We arrived earlier than our appointment, but they seated us promptly and were very accomodating... More

Four of us ordered different dishes - the Ahi tuna (two different preps), Chef's special, cioppinno. Very good dishes, great service. Liked the food so much we returned a few days later - sadly there had a handwritten 'closed' sign on the door.

I'm sorry to report the Waterfront has closed their doors for good. I will miss them, they were always a destination during my Maui vacations.

We had our usual tasty dinner on Tuesday - then opened the newspaper a few days later to find that the Waterfront had closed. Thank you, Waterfront, for some great meals over the years. The "out of the way" location was just right for meeting family when we were staying in Kaanapali and the family was in Kula.
