This was the most delicious dinner we had while on the island! The concept is fun and creative and knowing all of the ingredient were local was great. The chef combines them in creative ways. The only drawback was the amount of bugs later in the evening, even if you had used bug spray. However, we would definitely go back... More

Funky high end experience under a tent, next to highway with plenty of bugs. Locally sourced food is good but overrated compared to other farm to tables meals I've experienced on the mainland. I love tasting menus but both my husband and myself left hungry...which is no bueno considering the price point ($60pp). The experience is good for tourists interested... More

We recently celebrated our daughter's wedding in our favorite place, Kauai. We had quite a bit of difficulty getting responses from various restaurants while trying to find someone to cater our small reception. My daughter, Emily, finally contacted Justin, from Kauai Ono, after seeing some favorable reviews online. He responded right away, assured us that the date was secure, and... More

I love farm to table and this experience did not disappoint. All ingredients were so fresh and simply prepared. You sit at tables family style so it's always nice when you get seated with interesting people. Plusses The service is pleasant and informative. Each time a new course is served, an explanation of the ingredients, source and preparations is provided.... More

We've been to Kauai many times and wanted to do some things we've never done before. This is a very unique experience. There were two tables - a long one that sat around 20 and a higher table that sat 8. We were at the table for 8 and had a very enjoyable meal and conversation with the people that... More

5 courses were all delicious. Atmosphere was great and something special to remember from our vacation. Great company at our communal table. Very informal. Definitely worth reserving a few days in advance. Outdoors under a tent with a cool breeze. Take a jacket if a cooler evening.

Kauai Ono has moved to the grounds of the Adventure Park near Princeville. We loved this place 2 years ago when it was in Hanalei and it is every bit as good now. The location is now more convenient if you are not staying in Hanalei and easier to reach. We stayed near Kapaa and it was a nice easy... More

Fresh local produce prepared well. This is proper food without the frills. Just lets the fresh ingredients do the talking. We had good company at our table and an informative host willing to answer questions. I've seen reviews that mention bugs but we weren't bothered by any, perhaps because we had taken preventative measures before leaving the house. As for... More
