“Lovely View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

We sat on the upper level and had a beautiful view during dinner, the sunset was amazing. We had a great waiter. There is a nice selection if drinks and they were well made. We all enjoyed our salads and main entrees . We were too full to try any if the deserts . The owner was walking around and he personally came to ask us how out evening was going and on our way out her offered to take out photo with the amazing view in the background. We would return.

“Good location, the rest was average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

We had a seat on the second floor for dinner which does offer a great view. It was a bit of a let down from there. The food was okay, not terrible but nothing special.

My daughter said the POG smoothy was terrible and tasted nothing like POG (which she loves). Our server was nice but not very efficient. We ordered a side of mac & cheese that didn't arrive until after we had almost finished our entrees. She admitted that she hadn't clearly written it on the ticket.The PDG Short rib was tender as they claimed but it lacked flavor. The burger was large and probably the best item we ordered.

There are better options nearby and we won't be back.

“Amazing food and beautiful views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

A friend of mine invited me to have lunch at Koa's. I had never been, but only heard great things about the food and views. I must say everything from the views to the service was on point!! Our server Toshia was super friendly and very attentive. She made sure our drinks were never empty and we had everything we needed. The ceviche was amazing! The fish in the ceviche was tender and fresh! The fish tacos were made with fresh caught Ono! We sat out on the deck with beautiful views of Lanai across the channel and boats going in and out of the Lahaina Harbor. Koa's Seaside Grill is a great place to just sit back, relax, and enjoy mouth watering food with friends! I will definitely be back!!

“Amazing breakfast ”

Just like the gazebo in Napili this breakfast is second to none! A must when on Maui. Macadamia nut pancakes with secret dream sauce!

“Koa's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Epic view. Excellent meals enjoyed by my closest friends tonight. Adam was a spectacular server and he had to navigate the toddler waters of my two-year old daughter. All of us tonight (Sunday) are locals and we had great drinks, fabulous apps, and quality entrees. All surrounded by the heart of Lahaina. Our women loved the view and especially the desserts. For us who live here, Koa's makes it a very difficult choice to dine anywhere else. 'Nuff said.
