“Awesome Restaurant”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is THE restaurant on the island. We lived in Lahaina for 12 years -- special occasions were spent at Lahaina Grill. And we loved eating at the bar with Mary the bartender as often as we could. This restaurant is a class act all the way. Outstanding food, service and ambiance. Be sure to eat here when you are visiting the islands.

“Amazing all around ”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went here on our two week honeymoon. This was my favourite restaurant during the entire stay. Atmosphere was warm and welcoming... We has a nice table up front where we could watch people walking by. Made us want to sit and sip wine all night. Service was outstanding and the food blew my socks off. Meal was not cheap but believe me... Worth every penny!!!

“A little overhyped?”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We had a good dinner at LG but I would disagree with many of the reviews on TA that you will have an amazing experience here. Just a little background info for you: the restaurant is located in a very small enclave of restaurants, inns and shops at the water's edge which is quite nice. Parking is available very close to the restaurant and you will pay between $5 and $20. There are also attendants at all parking lots to help you if you are having trouble located a parking spot. The interior of the restaurant is nicely lit with elegant furnishings and the staff are as professional as you will find anywhere which probably comes from working at the restaurant many, many years. They seem to enjoy what they are doing. As for the food, well, it was good but it did not overwhelm us with greatness. We did not try the seafood dishes and maybe those are much better than the red meat entrees we had although you will not be disappointed with the slow braised short ribs, it was very well done. The soups are average and the desserts, particularly the signature dessert berry pie, is also very good but again not outstanding. Perhaps my expectations for our dinner was too high but keep in mind that appetizers start at $20 and the dinner entrees basically start at $30 and head north to an average price of $45. Naturally at this price point you would expect a dinner that will leave you wanting to come back but unfortunately this did not happen for us. If you have a lot of money then give it a shot but if you want better value then head over to Honu or some other similar establishment instead which is more casual, offers a terrific view and has really exceptional food for slightly lower cost.

“Great New Year's Eve meal!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We started out our celebration with the carpaccio, cake walk and ahi poke for appetizers. The ahi poke was wonderful and the seafood cakes were outstanding. Although we didn't order it, our fishing guide highly recommended the wagyu beef ravioli as out of this world. The "from the land" entrees looked all very appetizing, but we were focused on ordering seafood since we have a hard time getting really fresh seafood in the middle of New Mexico. My wife and I had a Hawaiian sea bass special with poblano risotto. My daughters had the seared ahi and salmon filet with grilled vegetables.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly and was familiar with New Mexico. Many of the dishes have a Mexican influence with Hawaiian ingredients which reminded us of our home cuisine. Overall great experience and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting Lahiana!

“Wow! Go here. Seriously. Wow.”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

This restaurant was amazing from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. The service was impeccable. The corn soup, salad, ahi tuna and meatball dishes were fresh and delicious. While the restaurant is a bit pricey, we felt it was worth every penny. We went for a special occasion and it was recognized by the hostess, our server, and the support staff, repeatedly throughout the evening. They even took a picture to send to us and gave us a congratulatory card signed by the staff! Go here. I can't believe this is not the #1 place to dine in Maui.
