Chef Warren Seta has done a fabulous job. Had the ahi sashimi for appetizers: ONO, the best, freshest I have ever had. Wine selection was good. i had cippino (did I spell it right) which was OK. My wife had the scallops which were huge and tasty. Dessert was a freshly baked chocolate cookie with vanilla ice cream. Awesome!

Prices were very moderate for this level of restaurant. A must visit.

I wish they were open on Mondays and Tuesdays, at least the bar with some poke.

This restaurant was really good! We were in Lanai for 8 nights and we came here for three nights. The food was fresh, the staff were very friendly and the restaurant had a cozy feeling to it. I highly recommend this place! It is expensive but just like the other dining options on Lanai. They are all expensive. It would be nice if it was a little less but the food is good at least.

Chop salad is a destination. Ribs are always a favorite. Don't forget the best martinis on the island. The service is very friendly and we always chose to eat there at least once or twice during our stay at Manele Bay

Decided to try the LCG one more time and the opinions formulated over the past couple of years were confirmed. Service was cordial and professional but expectations based on experiences at the previous incarnation of this eatery seem to have set the bar much too high. Tried the LCG "Signature Soup", which was supposed to be a crab and shrimp bisque but turned out to be a salty, tomato soup with a hint of seafood essence. A new item on the menu, a fish prep served over rice and a spicy gumbo was also disappointing as the gumbo was anything but, tasting more like chili given the preponderance of cumin. However, the okra and the fish itself were done well. There may come a day when benefit of the doubt will no longer be enough to bring us back to the LCG, perhaps sooner than later.

While the food here is not any less expensive than the four seasons, it is nice to get away from the hotel for a meal. My daughter had an excellent beet - not beef carpaccio that was tremendous. The service is attentive and friendly too. They held the shuttle for us and gave me my tea to go. Definitely make it a point to stop here for a lovely change from the hotels. The food is local too and very fresh.
