This has always been a great restaurant, now with their new chef they are slowing updating the menu. So far, her new items are delicious.

As readers of TA know the reviews of Red Salt are almost uniformly positive. Well, it turns out these reviews are correct. Starting with a drink and appetizer in the adjoining bar served by a super efficient and charming Ashley our birthday party group settled in the dining room where the engaging (surfer) Brian led us through the menu with...

We ate here twice during our stay because we liked the food so much. We had fresh fish both nights and were thrilled with the preparation as well as the freshness of the dishes. It is a smaller restaurant with views through the pool area to the ocean. The service was great. Ask your server what fish was brought in... More

This place had some decent reviews so we thought we would try it. The reviewers must have been talking about the food which was good, not great. They were definitely not talking about the ambiance and decor. The restaurant is adjoining the lobby of the hotel (not even a wall to separate it) and it looks more like a contemporary... More

We are guests at the hotel and have now had dinner and breakfast, both excellent. Amazingly the bagel and lox, which actually was smoked ahi tuna, with chives cheese was terrific. The service has been uniformly excellent as well. Highly recommended.

Good food for brunch and dinner. Service in morning at peak time is slow so either go early or be prepared to wait a bit

Dinner - food drinks and service were good Not great. Overpriced, especially bar drinks Service was very good Ocean is in the distance across the pool and open area. A 3 for dinner Breakfast much better - A 5. Service a bit rushed as nearly full. A little twist on some normal breakfast items making them great.

We had a great dinner here- delicious fish and drinks. The red salt really is amazing! Our waitress was really lovely and the view was beautiful. This hotel has kind of a high class boutique feel and was very fun to visit. Definitely recommend - make reservations.

This is a nice restaurant in a Poipu resort. Hard to find, not on the water, and no views to speak of. Reminded me of a country club restaurant. This is a highly-rated establishment but we didn't like it as much as some of the other restaurants in the area. The food and wine were good but not up to... More

We enjoyed their breakfast so much we came back twice. The view is beautiful. You can order off the menu, have the buffet or combine. The food was great. I would give it 5 stars but the service is a bit slow. Plan for a leisurely breakfast.
