“Good place for a casual dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

My boyfriend and I ended up eating here twice: once upstairs, and once downstairs in the more casual dining area. It's a cool spot for a meal. I was a little disappointed with my choices for dinner, but my boyfriend got the prime rib, THAT was so good.

“One of the best Sunset Dinners in West Maui !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

can't say enough good things about LeiLani's. We ate there last night and not only was the food outstanding but the service was excellent.

For dinner I had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi w/ asparagus -- absolutely delicious! My husband had the steak with sticky rice which was also excellent. For desert we shared the Hula Pie which I would have licked the plate if I could. Yes, it was that good!

This has been our favorite restaurant in the past 12 years so far in Maui and we would strongly recommend going. The second level is more intimate & quiet.

“Watch Out for Happy Hour”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Had a good first experience for a casual dinner and went back a second time - the mistake being we arrived at the end of happy hour on a Friday evening and our family was seated next to a table of foul mouthed drunks who appeared to be part of a local band. They had brought their own take away food (one rule for them as opposed to everyone else) and were clearly trying to drink as much as possible as quickly as possible. No regard was paid to the fact that small children and families were seated around and the loud language and swearing was simply inappropriate for the circumstances (go find a dark bar somewhere if that is what you want to do). They simply should have been tossed out, but clearly had the staff intimidated. Not good enough.

“Another great restaurant in the Whalers Village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

We love Leilani's for the Hawaiian food and warm service you want to receive in a tropical location. With a great location access can be easily acquired from a walk down the beach from many of the Kaanapali resorts.
