During the day or at sunset the view is excellent! The service was also excellent. But the food, overpriced even for the island was mediocre at best: salad, entree and desert all average for a lower priced restaurant. Go for the view, but not the food.

We had dinner here our first night at the St Regis. Good menu. Lots of choices. Beautiful venue, looking out over the bay. Great service.

Joined friends for breakfast yesterday and was disappointed at basic service. We were seated immediately at table with stunning views of Hanalei and served coffee right away by a assistant server/busboy. Each place setting included a knife, fork and huge tablespoon. There were no teaspoons to stir in cream/milk/sugar/splenda. We eventually caught his eye and he brought the spoons apologizing.... More

Breakfast was included with our room and we had one dinner here. All were outstanding both in food quality and service. I can't rave enough about the excellent service. Keep up the good work

The view can not be beat. Nothing is as beautiful as sunset on the terrace. This year dinner was a little disappointing. The rib appetizer was great but the trip of crabcakes was dense and overcooked. Our dinners wee ok, not spectacular but dessert was fabulous.

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.
