This was a last minute choice and we were so pleased with the view ! It was lovely. My husband ordered the lobster roll and it was so overpowered with onion, the lobster was indiscernible. His wedge fries were terrific. I ordered the crab omelette - Wow ! it was fabulous ! The potatoes that came with it were burned,... More

I can't fathom how this place could ever get anything other than a 5 star. I was staying at The Marriot Resort and then Grand Wailea but ate almost every single meal here. The sushi is among the best I've had in Hawaii- and I've lived here many years. I often get sick on sushi- but I ate it 3... More

Stunning views, eclectic menu but mediocre service and food. I was pleased that they offer breakfast anytime but the actual food did not measure up to menu descriptions

I had a bad experience with service when I last ate at 5 Palms two years ago, but family who live on Maui convinced me to try it again. Our waitress Davida was excellent. She gave careful descriptions of dishes and how they were prepared. She was attentive without being smothering. Her menu recommendations were spot on. The Kona lobster... More

The happy hour is very popular and can get crowded, but the food is good and the service has been good. We had dinner twice this past week and everyone loved the food. The view is one of the best in the Wailea area, at least one of the closest, as it is about 75 feet from the beach.

Every year when we visit Maui, we enoy a special breakfast at Five Palms, usually with good friends who are also there at the same time .The setting is gorgeous--right on the beach with stunning views. We enjoy Bloody Marys and wonderful food. Service is excellent. Just the best!
