We ordered the Mac and cheese meatball which was good but not amazing. The pork ribs also were just okay. The seafood hot pot was pretty good. We had reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes. The view was fantastic for a sunset though!

A good location and food was above average. Suffers from feeling a little like an open air cafeteria.

We ate dinner at Leilani's on the Beach our first night in Kaanapali. Reservations are recommended to sit on the upper level, but worth it. The food, services, and views of the Sunset were a great way to welcome our stay on Maui.

Yes, they had lots of gluten free options. If the server didn't know, she found out. Also you could substitute something for a gluten free option if the side wasn't gluten free
