“Cool Little Spot in Kapalua”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

My wife and I were staying at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua and tried the conveniently located Wine Pallette. It's a cool little spot with a very unique premise; as the name implies, its a wine bar, but they also allow you to paint on canvas or wine glasses. I suppose the thought is that wine brings out creativity in some people!

They do serve some food, mostly appetizers. The food was decent, but I probably wouldn't go back to eat.

My favorite part about the restaurant was the server. I forget her name, but she was had a great personality, very friendly and hilarious (she was from Mississipi and truly embodied Southern hospitality).

“Painting and Wine what could be better?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I tried this great place out with a friend. We are going back next week. The atmosphere is great. The wine list is totally amazing. The pupus (appetizers) were very good. Excellent sommelier whose name escapes me but he was very attentive and helpful. But, all that and you get to paint on canvas, or a wine glass or a wine bottle...and if you go during Happy Hour the painting is super cheap. Can't wait to go back.

“fun night out in Kapalua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

So happy to see a new spot in Kapalua. Our party had a great night sitting on the patio enjoying delicious food, wine and martinis. Our server was so kind and thoughtful and full of knowledge. A real nice vacation memory.

“Small plates and good wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a delightful tapas and wine bar. Many small plates to choose from including seafood, beef, vege, etc. They will customize a platter for the table to share if requested. Good selection of wines to complement including some flights. Ask for a taste if you're not sure about which wine to order.

This is not the place to go if you are looking for big portions of comfort food but it is an excellent opportunity to sample small portions of excellent food with wines to complement.
