“Impeccable food, service and location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We have eaten at Nick's on each of our annual visits for the past 15 years because we have never been disappointed. Plan your dinner reservation around sunset so you can witness the conch blowing by a buff Hawaiian man!
We always order the Poi Pounder and Kalua Potstickers. The daily fish special is always a winner. We also love their desserts. Try the Bananas Foster or their Flaming Chocolate Strawberry dessert.

“Hope you like to wait for your food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We had a group of 5 and once seated it took 10 minutes to get our drink order which is not great but we were OK with that. The problem was the food delivery: it took over 45 minutes for us to get our food. When it did arrive it was cold and we ALL had to send our food back. Considering I spent $200 on 2 bottles of wine (not to mention the food) and we poured for ourselves the majority of times, there was a complete lack of customer service.
The problem with Nick's (and for that matter all of his other restuarants -Sarrento's to name one) is that there is no one that is accountable for the service. They use a "team concept" so a group of people are suppose to work to gether to serve you. The problem wiht that is their training apparently is sorely lacking and everyone passes the buck because "someone else was suppose to do that." The person that gets screwed is me, the CUSTOMER. I stopped going to their other restuarants because of it and will now skip Nick's whenever I go back to Maui until they change this concept and have some accountability.

“Great meal and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We had dinner at Nick's with family and friends while on vacation in Maui. We had a great service and a wonderful meal. Nick's has team service and we were well taken care of and our whole team was very friendly. The food was really good, perhaps not the best meal we had on the island (Mama's) on our stay, but for the price it was very good. The grounds of the Fairmont are beautiful and Nick's looks out over these.

“We had two lovely meals at Nick's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

I was sorry to see the recent reviews for Nick's for we dined here twice during our 10 days in Maui and both times had incredible service and food. With the team service in place we never had to look for anyone as it seemed the minute we put our menus down they were there to take our order. Each person introduced themselves and although we had a team looking after us both nights the majority of the time we had Nathan the first night and Chris on our second visit. The staff knew the menu and were quick to give you their personal recommendations. Th mains (fish) and appetizers were wonderful and fresh. The attention to detail on the plate was lovely. The service was so good that when I asked what the flambe dessert was that everyone seemed to be getting one of the staff, I believe the manager, told me all about it and brought me my own sample - and we had already paid the bill we were just finishing our last bit of wine. As foodies that are looking for good food and great service this fit the bill. Enjoy!
