This restaurant was recommended and we are glad we went to it. The service was fantastic and the good was better than most other restaurants on the island. We would definitely go back.

“Pay for the scenic view”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

This restaurant needs to change something in their food variety and prices and it would be the most wanted. But when you have more than enough customers you do not really care about changing something.
Went here once and that was on the day we arrived for our vacation.
If you have a reservation you might be seated in the hallway to wait for several minutes, but if you have no reservation then expect 30-45 minutes wait time. After you finally get seated you enjoy the wonderful ocean and other Hawaiian Islands view. Food and drinks are overpriced and not the best. But you have choices. So try to nail it. Service is great and servers are very nice even having a lot of work.
Worth a try anyway.

“Great service!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We stopped at Leilani's in Whaler's Village for dinner during our last visit to Maui. The service was excellent! The best dish was the garlic shrimp scampi over black and while linguini. The seafood chowder, crab cakes, and wedge salads were also very good. I ordered the filet and was disappointed. The demi glaze with mushrooms and grilled onions served with it over the mashed potatoes were excellent but the steak itself did not have any flavor and was served medium rather than medium rare as ordered. Lastly, the hula pie was certainly large enough to share and very good!

“Can't beat the view”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Great location, among many of the hotels in Lahaina. View was impressive and we were there during the sunset which was stunning. Fish tacos is what they are known for. They were great, but we have had better. Coconut shrimp were good, but we've also have better and same goes for the poke.
