“Special Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Lovely, elegant restaurant off Front Street in Lahaina. Special night out, attentive service, extensive menu and everything we had was delightful. Not really appropriate for young children unless very well behaved, this is a big-ticket evening, so probably not where you want to take children. This was highly recommended to us and we pass that on to all!

“This is "the place" in Lahaina for Great Food & Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

New Year's Eve dinner with family & friends (party of six) was excellent as usual. Catch of the day, chicken & fish were delicious. Service was outstanding. First class restaurant. Worth the trip to Maui just to eat here....

“Excellent food and service in a cool resort atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Located in an older building which adds to the atmosphere. W got an early reservation at the least minute and had a wonderful meal. Great wait staff. Would eat there again if in Maui.

“One of our favorite restaurants anywhere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is our 4th visit to the Lahaina Grill over the years and it just keeps getting better. As usual service was spectacular. It was very attentive but not intrusive. The wine and food, from appetizer to the fabulous pear & beet salad to entree to the Road to Hana chocolate dessert were all excellent. And, the tequila shrimp with firecracker rice is one of our favorite entrees ever. This is a great restaurant!

“go to this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Great restaurant. We would go back again. Fine dining cuisine without the attitude. Excellent ambiance and professional but casual staff. Loved almost everything from the food, to service, and decor.

The downside was the crab cakes which were mostly just deep fried shells that were flavourless but probably appeal to the mostly American crowd. Also, a strange interpretation of a latte was brought to our table. Note that a latte is 1/3 espresso, 2/3 steamed milk, with just a touch of silky, shinny foam on top. Mine was 50% dry foam and in a red wine glass! Oh well, the waitress was very proud of it!!

The service and food were excellent and we have quite high and picky standards being foodies in Vancouver, BC. The prices were appropriate. I see that others have complained but we didn't think any of the costs were excessive. Being from Canada, we thought the wine was cheap and were ecstatic to order a super bottle of wine for so little!

Highly recommended.
