This place seems to be underestimated. While they do offer some Sushi, I don't know why it's listed as Japanese restaurant. The atmosphere isn't Japanese, and most of the food offered isn't either. We went here spontaneously for dinner and got a table upon arrival, luckily. Other guests, that came after us, had to wait. We ordered Fish and Chips,... More

Don't confuse this place with Bouchon of Napa fame. The Hanalei Bouchons is much more casual and the food is pretty average. We had the fish tacos which were ok but no better. I wanted iced tea but it wasn't fresh brewed so I passed on it. On the upside, we had window seats with an unbelievable view of the... More

We've always looked forward to this visit. Not this time. The crab in the rolls was mushy. After one bite I was done with that roll. The shrimp tempura rolls were great. They do have a good wine list and other drinks too. Great view over looking the city and onto the mountains.

This place makes really good sushi for a reasonable price (the rolls were pretty big) and has a pretty fun cocktail menu. We had a seat by the large, open windows and got to people watch over the main drag.

We had a very disengaged waiter who charged us a service charge of 20% which was above the stated 17% and which only applied to parties of 5 and more (we were 4). Guess he knew that his service was poor and that he would receive a low tip. Food was just ok.

We stopped in for a cocktail and shared an appetizer. I really enjoyed the lava bomb and their coconut shrimp was yummy. Grab a seat by the window if you can. The views are just beautiful.

I'm not usually a restaurant reviewer but... $27 tip added to my bill for a family of 5 when the whole experience was a struggle warrants me to speak up. Food wasn't bad but it came in waves with the burger being served 10 minutes after the rest of the food...the burger!!! Also drinks being brought to our table that... More

Great upstairs, open-air dining with a varied menu to keep everyone happy. Our wait person was awesome and very attentive. The island mixed grill was enough for tow to share so their portions are not skimpy

Bouchon's has excellent food at reasonable prices. I've taken my family there many times and I consider it one of the the best sit down restaurant on the island. They have a good selection of seafood, burgers for the kids, and sushi for the adventurous. The upstairs is open to the air and it has a view of the old... More

Our relaxed and spacious second story, open-air restaurant has a great ambiance and best picture taking views of Hanalei's mountains and waterfalls. Visitors and locals come time and time again for Bouchon's Pacific-American menu that's filled with a great selection of fresh homemade pupus, local caught seafood, teriyaki chicken, ribs and a premier sushi bar second to none. The famous Copper Bar serves up everything from soft drinks to Saki, including our very popular Mai-Tai. Located in the heart of Hanalei, we have the perfect gathering place to enjoy with family and friends.
