“One of the best meals ever!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

As avid restaurant goer, we decided to spurge on our Kauai Vacation and go to the Kaui Grill.
What an experience!

knowing that we wanted to enjoy the "total experience", we ordered the chef suggested tasting meal accompanied by the recommended wine paring.

It was one of the best meals we have ever experienced!

The quality and complexity of the food, the very attentive service, the manager's interaction with us all added up to a terrific meal and a great experience.

We have experienced the Tasting and Pairing meals at other restaurants in New York City and our experience at Kauai Grill was tops!!!

“Great Sunset View and Food to match”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

In St. Regis hotel. I started with a Bellini, normally it's Prosecco with peach juice, their version has cherry, not peach. Husband started with grilled black pepper octopus and a white wine from Alsace. I started with froi gras brulee with grapes, tarragon & ruby grapefruit. Main courses: veal chop with artichoke hearts, husband had hapa'upu'u (Hawaiian sea bass) in a chili & Thai basil sauce over fermented black beans. The room faces the bay and we watched the sunset as we ate. A lovely dinner with good service.

“Great Setting, Good, But Not Great, Food”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is another place to make sure you take your wallet, and the wallets of your 10 best friends; as well as take out a second mortgage and sell your car... OK, I'm sort of joking, but it is the most expensive place we dined in a trip to Hawaii that included Ko Olina, Wailea, and almost all of Kauai. Now, having said that, the food was good, but not great - at least not what one would expect for the setting, service, and cost. My wife and I decided that you come here for the view and ambiance rather than any other reason. The service was impeccable though.

“Best high end restaurant in islands of Hawaii”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Food preparation, service, ambience all make this a top rated restaurant worthy of a special occasion. I would rate 29-29-29 on Zagat's.

“St. Regis Kauai Grill”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

UNBELIEVABLE!!! The service was excellent, as you'd expect at a St. Regis. But - the meal was absolutely amazing. The best meal I had in Kauai, hands down. Maybe the best ever! Go there for sure, but bring your wallet...it's expensive. The views of Hanalei Bay are incredible. Make reservations and ask for a table on the glass.
