Breakfast was delicious. I ordered from the menu and had the Peanut Butter French toast with coconut syrup and fresh bananas. The sample jellies were great and service was awesome. They had a breakfast buffet as well that looked really good.

We visit this restaurant almost yearly, and this time we enjoyed it so much on our first dinner, we came back the very next night, which was our last night on the island. I think what really stood out this time was the service, of course the view is amazing. Starting with the host and hostess(Joel and his associate), the... More

Note to golfers: if you play Makai at the St. Regis, which is a nice course, ask about the gift certificate golf and dine rate. It's worth the extra money to get a $100 gift certificate. Hold that thought for a minute. For both Makana and the Kauai Grill the setting is fantastic, great ocean and sunset views. Have the... More

This restaurant located in St. Regis is located out on a patio has incredible views of Hanalei Bay. A great place to enjoy a nice meal and watch the sunset. Enjoyed the unique entrees and the great service.

Had breakfast here almost every morning. The breakfast buffet was great! I stay in hotels over 100 nights a year and this was the 3rd best buffet I've ever seen and eaten. Great food, great service, fresh squeezed juices! Loved the omelet bar!

We went to the brunch buffet at the St. Regis and sat out on the terrace with a view of Hanalei bay. We of course over ate, since the choices were so fabulous. We started with the omelet bar, with many choices followed by a selection of fresh fruits. If that wasn't enough, we had french toast with coconut, fresh... More

We save the Kauai Grill for a special evening and dine here for s lovely evening out. Mind you it can still be expensive considering it is in the St Regis, but you would be hard pressed to find a better sited restaurant with a view of Hanalei Bay, "Puff the Magic Dragon" and an awesome sunset. The young servers... More

The ambience is lovely, but things went down hill pretty quickly. Service was surprisingly poor. Our waiter seemed to never be around. Food was slow to arrive. When our mains did come, no one had replaced our utensils, and it took about 5 minutes to get someone's attention to finally get them to us. And finally, the food quality was... More

Most incredible dining spot view on the island I'd guess. Exceptional options with a culinary flair.

We made reservations weeks in advance for a early seating and had a table with unobstructed views of the Napali Coast and later the sunset. The food was excellent, our server was attentive, but not intrusive. The view has always been the best in Princeville and maybe for the whole island. We were a party of seven and everyone enjoyed...
