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

Good food and drinks. The bartender was the son of the wonderful lady that served us at the hotel restaurant. The waitress a polish girl that came to visit a friend and stayed, was friendly and advised us well on what to ordered. It was a fun place. Expensive.

I would like to start off on a positive note by exclaiming that the calamari starter is a great dish with a rather large portion size. Iʻm a really big fan of fried foods, and this dish in no way disappointed me! I did like the dipping sauce that was provided on the side, which did have a great smoky... More

Food was okay, pricing was okay, service was good, music was good and the views and vibe were excellent. It's a nice alternative to the FS restaurants if slightly behind them in most areas.

Enjoyed a relaxing dinner in a dining room with local history. Soup and fish entrée were both delicious. Menu changed from previous visits when the focus was on BBQ and steaks, new menu is lighter with options ranging from hamburgers, to pasta, to chicken and fish dishes. Service was attentive. Would visit again.

Enjoyed the fresh interesting food offered at the Lanai City Grille located in the Lanai Hotel. We stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel and wanted some alternative choices for dinner and the locals all suggested Lanai City Grille. They had live music and a great warm local Hawaii atmosphere that should be appreciated. Their fresh fish was terrific.
