“Continues to be Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

I've reviewed this restaurant before - 5 stars. I wanted to spend my 70th birthday on Kauai for sentimental reasons and chose the Beach House for dinner - boy was I ever NOT disappointed. They treated our party like royalty. Beyond the service, there was a perfect sunset and food was every bit 5 stars. Of course it's expensive, but, hey, you get what you pay for. Thanks to everyone who signed the card for me and especially our waitress, Michele, who sang Happy Birthday all by herself. Great job!

“The Best Seafood Restaurant in Hawaii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

My wife and I returned to Beach House during a recent vacation in Kauai. The fresh catch is always excellent and prepared to perfection. The restaurant also has a spectacular wine list although we choose a New Zealand savignon blanc citrus bomb for a terrific complement. As always the location is a huge plus. Even though we were not seated at the windows, our table had excellent views of the Ocean and the surfers riding the waves outside the restaurant. Quite frankly, ever since the decades old John Dominus restaturant in Honolulu closed, the Beach House has gotten my vote for best seafood restaurant in Hawaii. (La Mer at the Halekulani in Honolulu is more French). The Beach House has a wonderful in house baker who makes terrific bread rolls each morning with red Hawaiian salt. Wonderful beard is a sign of how terrific the food is at this restaurant. Everything is prepared with care and very fresh an delicious.

“Fine dining in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

This is fine dining with one of the nicest settings for the sunset! We had excellent service. Food itself is very good, I would say our appetizers and entrees were far better than Merrimans but not quite as good as Red Salt.

“Memorable evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We enjoyed our dinner at the Beach House. It was very expensive and had very few options for kids. The view was amazing - be sure to arrive before sunset for drinks. We were a bit disappointed as we had made our reservations two months in advance and we were in the back of the restaurant. Would have preferred to be near the windows.
That being said, the service was excellent and the food was delicious.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

On Christmas night we dined at the Beach House. We made advance reservations several weeks in advance. . I am glad that in the 4 years since we were last here nothing much has changed. Good food and service. I had the wasabi crusted fish and my wife had the filet. Both were very tasty. Thank you beach house for keeping it up!
