Lanai City Grill is located inside Hotel Lana'i, and is a fabulous spot to try out for dinner. From Sushi, to Entrees to Dessert, I've never had a meal I didn't LOVE. The food and drinks are a bit pricey. However, not as expansive as the restaurants you'll find in the Four Seasons Resorts. It's an adorable, quaint restaurant, with... More

We ended up eating in the restaurant once and the bar area twice during our recent visit. Very good food (warning - the appetizers are like a meal in themselves), charming old-style setting, and their outside lounge area (in the back) was a fantastic finish to our visiting under the stars and enjoying the night. We loved it!

I have been here a couple of times. This is a Bev Gannon restaurant and her food is always amazing, although big portions, hence, the food baby. I recommend trying to various flavors of mashed potatoes. Also, the atmosphere here is very cozy and service is wonderful.

Staying at the 4 Seasons Hotel at Manele Bay, you have essentially two restaurants for dining in the evening. A few of us decided to make the 25 minute trip to eat at the Lanai City Grille. We loved it. The place is a comfortable bungalow, with beautiful wood tables and chairs. The mixed drinks, island-style, are well done and... More

This is a place that the locals go. Quality food with outstanding service. But the prices had been extremely increased since our last visit in 2012.

This Lanai One Stop Comfort Spot reminds me of Northern Wisconsin. The Hotel Lanai sits in the tall pines and has a cool breeze blowing through. Meanwhile, their dining venue resembles a Northwoods Supper Club. It's only open for dinner which fits an island where life revolves around the great outdoors. Visitors play golf or Jeep about most of the... More

The best starter item on the menu used to be a beet salad - sliced beets with sliced goat cheese, greens, dressing. I recommended this to my friend last night and we were both shocked and disappointed when we found that the salad now is made of chunks of PICKLED beets, very little goat cheese, and rock hard candied pecans...

We had an anniversary dinner here one night and were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and provided excellent suggestions. The mushroom risotto was to die for! We would not hesitate to go back, and recommend to friends.

My opinion of hotel restaurants usually is not that high, but the Lanai City Grille was surprisingly good! The dining room is cozy with warm colors. It's a plantation style bed and breakfast inn and the dining room and bar are used for breakfast. We started out with the sashimi and poke appetizer. Very fresh and delicious. My husband had...

We read about this place and made a reservation, which was probably needed. The restaurant was very busy and we asked to be seated in the bar area, which was very comfortable and quiet. The wait staff were all so friendly and worked very hard to make sure everything was great. The menu is full of tasty choices. We split... More
