“Birthday Dinner at the Beach House”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We enjoyed our birthday dinner at the Beach House. Our server was very attentive and even brought a special dish of Lappert ice cream with a candle for our birthday. The food was great, but not exceptional. The watermelon salad was much too wet and soggy. The opa crusted with macadamia nuts was very good and came with rice and green beans. Of course, the view is spectacular. Be sure to make a 6 PM reservation and you'll be there to go out on the lawn about 6:30 for sunset. All in all, a wonderful place to spend a birthday celebration!

our reservation was for after sunset but we arrived early and sat in the bar. The sunset views are amazing and not to be missed. Our meals were wonderful. My scallops were excellently prepared and my wife"s blue cheese steak was heaven.

“Best restaurant on Kauai”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The location of this restaurant is oceanfront with spectacular views. We dined for lunch, so this review is specific to that. They have a great seafood chowder as well as fresh island Ahi sashimi for starters. The fish selections are fresh and the salads very good. The restaurant is across the street from the Lawai Beach Resort, should you be staying there. There is also snorkeling and the possibility of seeing green sea turtles. A really good place to dine on Kauai.

“Average food, good ambiance”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I feel this place is overall a good place to dine for a special occasion or for a romantic dinner. But it may be a little over-rated for the quality of food alone. Slightly over priced for some dishes.

* Crab Cake
Overall good for the price $13. Very filling. But couldn't taste much of crab.

* Grilled Fish (ono) with black thai rice in coconut curry sauce

1) The smokiness of Grilled fish was really good.
But fish was overcooked and had no seasoning. Very bland. I had to put lots of salt in it.

2) Black thai rice was really sweet and too much in portion. Very overwhelming and overshadows the entire plate.

3) There needed to be more of the curry sauce to balance out the blandness of grilled fish.

* Salad appetizer was good.

* Grilled Tofu with thai rice and curry sauce.
Exactly same components as the Grilled fish dish but @ $32!
Can't believe they ask for almost same money for 4 small pieces of tofu that replaces fresh-caught fish.
