Couldn't get a reservation last minute on a Saturday night but enjoyed a wonderful meal in the bar. Great atmosphere and outstanding sushi. Unique cocktails.

We decided to celebrate our anniversary here with dinner. They gave us a table outside that overlooked the water. Our reservation was at 8 so unfortunately the sun had already set so I recommend coming here at 6:30 or 7. We started with a martini since they have a signature cocktail list. The lemon gingertini was delicious albeit small. We... More

As a local Kauai resident, we have lots of places to pick from. It's been almost twenty years since we visited Stevenson's Library. Stopped in for a drink before my wife's birthday dinner. Our bartender (Faye) was amazing! She was welcoming and warm. Thank you Faye for your company. We'll be back again and hope to see you again. HIGHLY... More

We went out to dinner for Father's Day, and we were let down by our experience here. We had reservations for weeks leading up to our vacation. We showed up on time, and placed our order pretty quickly after we were seated. We ordered our kids rice, as they do not like sushi. We waited an hour and a half... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on our second night on Kauai. We ordered a couple of sushi rolls and the lobster dynamite. We sat on the terrace and listened to the live music. We didn't have reservations and were able to get a table right away at 8:30pm on a week night. The food was great and... More

Beautiful setting, dress code casual. First time at this type of restaurant, so we were all very uncertain of what to order. Staff very friendly and explained many of the dishes on the menu. My favorites were the octopus and king crab (sorry, don't remember the sushi name for either). For those not willing to try it, they also offer... More

Really great sushi (especially the salmon nigiri's which are cut and served very much like they are in Japan - thick, long cuts with wasabi on top of rice). The shrimp tempura was also delicious.

Having cocktails at Stevenson's Library when I realized I was listening to gorgeous music! Had to go find out who they were! Amazing duo called Falling Down Romance. So worth going to hear such gifted musicians! You will love their music! Also at Trees Lounge 2nd & 4th Tuesday I learned. Had to buy their CD.

Great food, great service, the chef is very friendly. Probably the best food on the Island. Fantastic view of the sea.

We visited the Art Night in Hanapepe and discovered the group Falling Down Romance. Their eclectic mix of music seemed just perfect for Kaua'i so we sought them out at the Hyatt the following Tuesday just for drinks. Stevenson's has nice comfy chairs that make a night out a pleasure. Our only regret is that we discovered the venue and... More
