Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This luau had excellent food which was both quality and quantity. Bottomless drinks were
A plus also. The only thing I did not like about it was all 8 dancers performed all 4 dances from different cultures.
They literally ran to the dressing room to change for each performance. If you don't mind that then this is the luau for you!

This was our first time in Hawaii and everyone said to go to a luau, so we did! We're glad we chose Feast at Lele and had a great time. We especially liked the fact that we got our own private table (instead of sharing tables like at most other luaus), and that we were served our food and didn't have to stand in buffet lines. Those 2 features clinched it for us.

The dancers were great, especially the fire dancer. What incredible talent!

Here's a tip, book EARLY (weeks in advance if you can) because they assign the seats based on the date you book. We booked early and got a table in the front row, right next to the dancers, which was awesome! Great food, friendly staff, endless drinks, entertaining show, we loved every minute!

Was a pleasant evening on the beach. Really enjoyed the theatrical aspect of the evening. They did a good job of presenting the four different founding cultures of Hawaii and the fire show at the end is not offered at every luau. The service was attentive and quick.

The concept of presenting four rounds of food each based on the founding culture was novel and distinguished this event as did the table service. We specifically chose the Feast at Lele because of this and the fact that there was table service vs a big buffet.

The food quality - taste and presentation was good but not exceptional. I recognize that they were serving about 150 people at once so to expect more may be unrealistic.

They took pictures of you pre dinner on the beach which you could purchase after if you wished. We were interested in looking at the pictures because it was a lovely evening and we dressed for the event. On the way out, we could see a table with some pictures but couldn't immediately see any of our pictures. We weren't interested in lining up to get a glimpse of what the picture looked like after a 3 hour event. Might be a better way to orchestrate this eg., like the cruise ships do -- post all the pictures so people quickly look and then purchase.

Both of our teenagers (son 16, daughter 14) enjoyed the event. We are all pretty adventurous eaters . I am gluten, dairy and egg free and they did a good job of accommodating my sensitivities bringing me separate dishes that I could eat.

I've been to several Luau's on the different islands of Hawaii. This is the best Luau I have ever been to. It takes you through the four different cultures of Hawaii through music, dance and food. They put on a very entertaining and talented show. Don't forget to save room for all the delicious food they will serve you from the different cultures of Hawaii. It's all you can eat and drink plus desserts. We had our own table right on the water which was very intimate. I will definitely go back next time I'm in Maui.

Perfect for foodies, not a buffet like typical luaus. Also loved the dancers and learning more about the different pacific island countries.
