Reviewed May 13, 2014

it was no Mama's, however, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the server took great care of us. We topped off our meal with a creative dessert.

“Grand View, not grand food”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Expensive food, mediocre taste, disinterested waiter, wonderful view, wonderful setting, disappointed with overall cuisine. We ate at a different restaurant each night of our vacation in Maui. We thought this would be one of the outstanding selections and decided this was not the case. Our waiter was a bit argumentative, not attentive and not very articulate about the offerings. I thought I was ordering the snapper as a special dish. It was expensive and ordinary, not a special dish worthy of the high price. We were hungry and ate the food, we did not savor the food. We did savor the sunset, the view of the ocean and sounds of the luau next to the restaurant. None of these experiences justified the high price of the restaurant.

“Unique ambiance, very good food”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

We ate here after reading the reviews on trip advisor. The ambiance was great. The restaurant is open air, thatched roofed huts over a lagoon with tropical fish. I read other reviews that said their waiters gave them fish food to feed the fish. I wish our waiter had offered this. Our table was in the bar and right on the water. The sunset was beautiful.
The food was very good. We both had the same thing so I can only comment on one entree. We had the macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi with purple sweet potatoes. It was cooked perfectly and paired well with the potatoes. The hula pie for dessert was very good as well.
As expected from The Grand Wailea, prices were expensive. The drinks I felt were outrageously priced, but that is also par for the course at resorts.
Overall, we had a nice dinner and the view made it all the more better.

“Honeymoon dinner ”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went here for dinner twice during our stay at the Grand Wailea. The first time the food was great and the service was okay. We had surf & turf and the blackened snapper. Both very good!! The second time we had filets again and they were just ok. Not cooked as well as the previous time and the cut was a little different. Our waiter was awesome though and so was the manager. He stepped outside to take our photo at sunset, they also gave us dessert on the house since we were honeymooning. They really went out of their way for us to make sure we had a great experience. Overall, good restaurant and top notch service just like the hotel. Would eat here again!
