“Best menu ever! Fabulous food, gracious service.”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Eating out in Hawaii (or Europe or Mexico or....!) for vegetarians is not easy, for the most part. Ko has one of the best menus I have seen - with a separate section for vegetarians, vegans, and the gluten-free. The dishes in those sections were each more tempting than the next and even some of the non-vegetarians ordered dishes from those menus. All the food we ordered was simply fabulous! The service was very good. The outdoor set up was nice too although there no views to speak of. Therestaurant consistently gets awards and it's easy to see why.

“Great Food, Great Service”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Delicious food, awesome atmosphere and superior service. Although we did not have a reservation, the ladies at the host stand sat us after a short wait. Our waiter John made recommendations of cocktails, appetizer, entrée and wine and was spot-on with everything. We are looking forward to our next great meal at Ko.

I'm picky as hell. I never give good reviews. This place had all three. Excellent food, drinks and service.

“Delicious meals, view a bit retracted from the ocean”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

This restaurant was well reviewed and I agree the fusion cuisine was delicious. We were here at both lunch and dinner. Nice ambiance with live band playing on certain nights. Location a bit far from the ocean for a nice sunset view though. Apparently there's a Maui dining app that can get you good discounts at this place.

“Recommend to everyone!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Our first dinner at the Ko was everything we expected and more! Best seat in the house with a great sunset view. Signature sushi appetizer was over the top for two who do not eat sushi. Entrees were fresh and delicious. Service was exceptional at all levels with everyone greeting us like we were family! Will definitely visit again next time in Maui!
