We went for sushi and the live Music. Our server was fantastic, the sushi was better than we had anticipated and we enjoyed the music and the classic feel of the bar.

Feels like you're in personal library of Robert Louis Stevenson. Such a nice setting. Great view of ocean. Drinks are a bit pricey but really good! Spoil yourself! The go down to Tidepools for dinner

The is nothing better than fresh fish in the hands of an experienced sushi chef. Everything was well-prepared and delicious. Service was excellent.

We enjoyed the sushi our first night at the Grand Hyatt and it was surprisingly good. The fish is very fresh as you would expect and all the rolls were very good. Solid sushi option (as another contributor said) right in the hotel. If we come back to the hotel we would dine here again. Stevenson's Library Bar was also... More

My favorite waitress is still here after 17 years. They had four Sushi chefs and an executive chef and seemed to be busy all the time. Before you ate sushi in the actual bar area, but they have opened the back and now it is a full restaurant. They had a guitarist in the bar area after 8pm, I think,... More

Solid sushi option if you want to stay on property at grand HYATT hotel. We've consistently dined here every year when we visit. Poke is always delish with cold sake options. You can dine at sushi bar or at a table. Quiet and relaxing. Tip: you can make reservations via open table versus walking in.

We enjoyed Stevensons Library very much. Sushi is very good and a lot of work goes into making it. Our cold beer and wine were delicious and the trade winds blowing outside made it even bette! Some other tables were grumbling because food was taking a while. For us it did not seem long and it was busy. Dinner on... More

If you're a sushi connoisseur, skip this place. The good news - the fish was fresh. The bad news - the sushi rice wasn't prepared properly (it completely fell apart with the first bite) and the sashimi wasn't sliced right (too thick with an odd pile of leftovers). The drinks were expensive and not at all good. The place is... More

Good spot for sushi/asian fare late night at the resort. Becomes pretty crowded after the other restaurant bars close.

You can now order sushi at the bar! The room is gorgeous, the staff is friendly and the mango martini is awesome! It was fun watching Super Bowl at the bar!
