After our previous experience two nights prior, the standard was set. We had a great time on Tues., and we sat at the bar, Emma was great as well as the food & wine. $300.++ for two people, gladly spent. We returned on Thursday, bringing our son we'd flown over from Maui. Poor service, insultingly slow with a half full room and a reservation. When we were FINALLY approached, even though we had waited at bar 10 minutes past reservation time, waitress enthusiastically ran an aggressive evening of attempted "up-selling," her biggest objective. She didn't have to, we own a restaurant, and wanted to eat and drink well! Scampi we're mealy, not half as fresh as the previous meal 2 nights before, and smaller, missing some of their heads and tails, insultingly different product. The waitresses blatant attempts to sell us more at every table visit far outweighed anything else. Some great poke (we ordered all 3) but this visit, contrary to my review of Tuesday's (all 10's with Emma AND the food on Tuesday) was so polar opposite, we left Kauai with a very poor memory of our service and food the second visit. I guess its a 50/50 chance, your money, your gamble.
