“Great waterfront location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Food and service average. Many better place in the area. Not impressed. Probably good for just having a drink at sunset.

“very nice menu, great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We stayed at Makena Beach and Golf resort so we decided to try their restaurants. This is fine dining food and prices but the dress is pretty casual. Views are great. You can see the beach and the beautiful resort grounds. Good food. The server was really nice too.

“Decent restaurant with great views and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Decent restaurant with great views and drinks. For the price was well worth it. If the hotel was not so close I am not sure I would make the special trip just to visit the restaurant.

“Improvement needed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

I had diner on my 1st night at this place and got so disappointed. The seafood was not fresh, the Mahi Mahi was too fishy, same with seared tuna and shrimps. The carpets smell and need to be changed. The music needs some variety and desert is not worth the calories.
