I'm glad we ate here on our last night, since it was one of the best meals. We both got different steaks. Delicious and tender! We started with the lobster bisque and a caesar salad. Everything was great. They have a big drink menu, too.

Excellent service, fabulous food! What an unexpected surprise as we chose it from driving past and very pleased with the discovery. Kudos to our server, BK, who managed our food quickly as we were on our way to the airport.

Not your food plate truck, but a pleasant place for dinner about 3 mins away. Good menu, well prepared food.

About a 30 min drive from the Grand Hyatt where we were staying but on the advice of friends we made the trip and we're glad we did. Very fresh fish deliciously prepared. Salads were excellent and the chocolate lava cake very tasty!

We had a great meal here. The service is great and the food is great. Pricing is a little more on the expensive side but a good treat for yourself while you're on vacation.

This is a great restaurant; food-wise with great service; perhaps one of the best on the Island. I do find that ambience and facilities wise it is trading on its food and service and not updating its surroundings. But at the end of the day...More

Located at the Kauai Coast Resort, this restaurant is a must for a special dinner. The lanai has a beautiful view of the Pacific. Wonderful fresh fish dinners and don't miss out on the lobster curry bisque!

My adult children arranged a surprise dinner for me at the Hukilau Lanai. It was lovely! The dining room and patio are beautiful, the wait staff is attentive, and the food is delicious. A stroll through the grounds to the ocean was an extra bonus.

My husband and I ate here for our first anniversary dinner thus week. He told me that him and the manager were previously talking to try and work out a table on the beach. Due to staffing, they weren't able to accommodate and that's okay....More

Your conditions don't work for an open-plan restaurant. One of the large hotels would be more suitable for you.
