“Good food, great service”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Went here with wife and son during vacation. Wife wasn't crazy about the fish selection and had trouble choosing, and ended up not liking her choice and preferred mine. The waiter offered to change out her entree, which he did.

Where the management went above and beyond was when the bill came and they not only took off the original order (not unusual), but also didn't charge for the replacement order.

“All show an NO go! Overated mess!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

As with the rest of the "T's" restaurants , great views, great ambiance, good happy hours, but that's where it stops. Whether Kimo's, Hula Grill, Dukes(pukes) Leilani's, it's all the same- All SHOW and no GO. BAD service , overcooked fish, small portions, these peeps need to GTST. As our 10YO says, EPIC FAIL! Seriously, 30 mins to place order, 45 mins to get order that sat under heat lamp and when it finally arrived way overcooked, then no sight of server. Another waste of 3 hours and $175 for 2 adults and 1 child.

“Excellent meal and excellent service”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is a delightful open air restaurant on the Kaanapali Beach. We had a conventional light lunch of salads and burgers all to our complete satisfaction. Staff were very helpful with our 18 month old boy offering crayons etc. We were very pleased with it all.

“Leilani's on the Beach”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Great restaurant directly off the beach walk next to the Westin Maui. Easy access from surrounding hotels just a short walk. Didn't have to wait long for a table and food was really good. Prices are typical for the area. Good kids menu. Servers are great.

“Great menu and location”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Leiliani's is a fantastic beach bar with a better than expected menu. The wait staff is extremely friendly and the wait was never too long since it is quite a large restaurant. They have a great wine selection too. Definitely a place to hit up for lunch dinner if you're in Kaanapali!
