“Great Service and Prices!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

This steak and seafood restaurant was excellent. Our server, Steve was attentive, professional and excellent at describing the meals and making recommendations. We made reservations and had no problem with seating. I had prime rib (really good!) and my husband had the fish of the day with a delicious lemon butter sauce. We finished off the meal with the brownie dessert that was just ok. I HIGHLY recommend Café O'Lei as the atmosphere is great, the food is great, the prices are great and the service is great! Can't go wrong!!!

“Sadly lacking”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

We came for dinner and the restaurant was fairly busy. The server was disinterested and through the course of the meal we were never asked for a second round of drinks or how our food was. The salads were warm & swimming in dressing, we did leave a suspect oyster that was dried around the edges and my husband spent the majority of his time sawing through his steak with a butter knife. This was the second time we have tried the restaurant (shame on us). There are many better places in Kihei or go the extra distance to Wailea if you are looking for a quality meal.

“Always a great menu with daily killer lunch specials”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

Every thing I have tried at the Cafe is very good and the fish is always fresh and delicious - lunch specials are da kine...but get there by 1 pm to enjoy them for sure. Bartender Kat is the best and always has a kind word and smile to share.

“Sushi NOT available on Sundays and Mondays”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We made reservations here because we were looking for a sushi place and Cafe O'Lei had good reviews. However, once we were seated and given menus, we noticed there weren't any sushi dishes on the menu. Upon asking, we were told that sushi is not served on Sundays and Mondays. And we were there on a Monday. We were disappointed and ordered other dishes, which were good, along with the service, but wished we had known up front that sushi would not be available.

“Best ribs”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We came here for dinner and had the special, mahi mahi and the Asian style shirt ribs. They were so delicious and best on the island! A bit of a wait during the busy time batt well worth it, tried the sushi, it was good but not as good compared to paia!
