First time back to Princeville since the change from Sheraton to the St Regis. Heard go things about Kauai Grill so we planned a dinner during our stay. The food was well prepared and creative from our experience. We had salmon sashimi as a starter which was excellent. Nice salmon, fun crispy rice cake and chipotle emulsion instead of wasabi. Very tasty. We ordered short ribs, filet and peppercorn crusted ahi. All were delicious and prepared correctly. Also ordered a side of mashed potatoes and ginger rice. Again, very well done.
The down side of dinner was the dining room itself. It was noisy and strangely lit with fluorescent lights which made it feel like a diner. Paper placemats on the tables contributed to the diner feel. Tablecloths would help to improve the appearance.
Service was friendly but not as polished as it could have been. Our server seemed to get lost from time to time.
Overall a great place to have excellent food if you don't mind the odd decor.
