The food was diverse and good. Chose to do just small plates and pizza. The beer list was good for Maui. Service was good but nothing out or the ordinary. Casual dining and not inflated prices by Maui standards.

Flatbread pizzas are amazing! I had the Haiku Tomato which was a generous portion and full of flavor w roasted garlic & pesto, garden fresh tomatoes... I was equally disappointed w the Yukon Gold soup however. Flavor was completely lacking, the portion was more like a scrap, about a half cup. My waiter suggested I may want to order two... More

We went there for main meals and ended up ordering basically every dish on the menu! I had the grey snapper fish with the special sauce. The chef actually came to our table and did a scientific experiment which incorporated vacuum suction through atmospheric pressure to get the sauce to infuse with the herbs. For dessert, I had the fruit... More

We were staying at the Ritz, so we ate at their signature restaurant one evening. We had mostly seafood items that were well prepared and presented. A highlight was the Hawaiian sweet bread with a soft spreadable goat cheese.

We love watching celebrity chefs on television, and really appreciate well executed dining experiences. Tonight's dinner at the Banyan Tree was not up to our expectation. I really enjoyed the view, but the location itself is not ideal for fine dining. The restaurant is not attached to the hotel, but stands alone next to the pool. Due to the strong... More

Had an amazing dinner here with Ara as our server, awesome guy and very knowledgeable, has 10+ years residency at this hotel and restaurant group. The food was amazing - the filet for him - the seared Ahi for her - two of the best meals we have ever had, bar none. Wine was delicious but expensive, but that is... More

This place is one of the best places to eat in Maui! The short ribs were to die for as well as the buffalo wings, the mashed potatoes, chicken and every single entrée was top notch.

Pricey as everything else at the Ritz, but the best option. We had dinner 3 times during our 10 day stay so we sampled almost everything on the menu. The poke was the best appetizer. Duck buns way too sweet and starchy. The entrees were all good, noting exceptional. Service varied. The first time the waiter was condescending and pushy,... More
