We returned to Pita Paradise during Wailea Restaurant week, which is an awesome event. Just not at Pita Paradise. At our 6:30 reservation they were already out of the fresh fish special of the day, part of the Wailea Restaurant week pre fixe menu. So 4 out of 6 in our party opted to go with the regular menu. Service was slow from the start, first blamed on the bartender and then on the kitchen. Salads were delivered and auctioned off as "regular" or "restaurant week". I guess we who ordered restaurant week meals were not worthy of a regular salad. It was a mess when everyone ended up with the wrong salad. It's fine if you want to cut corners and serve a smaller salad with a pre fixe menu, but try to keep your orders straight instead of announce and guess upon delivery. It just embarasses everyone. Entree course arrived at least an hour after the salads. "The Kitchen's Fault". Quality was mediocre at best. Our entire dinner experience took over 2.5 hours, and we were not in the market for that. No managers in site, no true apology, but happy to sell us another glass of wine while we patiently waited. Check delivered about 9 pm without any sincerity. No gesture for our long wait, no invitation back, and the kicker? We got auto gratuity for a party of 6! NOT.GOING.BACK.
