“To stuffy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The staff was extremely rude, waited for over 10 minutes to get the bar tender to even acknowledge us. Then they sat us at a table in the corner when there was beautiful seating outside, which they took us to only after we asked. The food wasn't that great and the price was to high.

“Terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We went for a special Anniversary dinner. It was wonderful! We had reservations for sunset and the view was incredible; even in the rain. The service and food were outstanding. We were glad we had read reviews from Tripadvisor as we had read it was expensive, and it was. It was worth it.

“Really noisy and expensive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We walked here for a glass of wine and some small plates. Cheese plate was boring, service was slow and it was really noisy. You couldn't hear the musicians and we were very close to them.

“Wedding Reception Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We recently attended a wedding in Maui and the wedding reception dinner was held at Merriman's. We think this is a fantastic fine dining establishment in West Maui. It is definitely worth the visit and should be on your list for restaurants for the island. The tables are right on the water and the view (and sunset) is fabulous. The appetizers they served for the wedding party were outstanding. And the dinners were, too. Everyone raved over the entire aspect. It is a little tough to find, but directions are easy. (It is not located in a shopping mall.) They only offer valet parking, but that also made it convenient. This is truly a classy restaurant and worth the price to experience.

“Excellence by the Sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Let's imagine a near perfect dining experience. Drinks watching whales a mere few hundred yards away, interesting cocktails, creative fresh salads, very tasty entrees, and fought over desserts. Fun banter with a waitstaff that wasn't afraid to voice an opinion on drinks or food. Nice variety of entrees so all tastes catered to. Even a plate of Ahi, Mahi Mahi, and Filet of Beef; that provided a veritable buffet of a meal. This is how you make 5 people happy when one is shelling out for a high end bucks meal. 2 thumbs up from all!
