“Never got served!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We have been at the Makena Beach & Golf Resort for only a few hours. We decided to try the resort restaurant tonight for dinner but have just returned from the restaurant after receiving no service at all. When we arrived, the maître de was on the telephone on a personal call. She did hang up when we approached her. After we looked through the menu and asked for a table for two, we walked into the restaurant but she didn't follow us through into the restaurant to show us to a table. We asked at the bar if we should just seat ourselves but we're told that no, the maître de would seat us. So we walked back outside to be seated but the maître de was back on the telephone again. We stood there in front of her for no less than 5 minutes, completely ignored as she chatted to the person on the other end of the line.

We were so appalled at the lack of service that we decided to leave. So unfortunately we can't comment one food as we were never given an opportunity to eat it! Very very disappointed. No to mention hungry!

“solid food quality but some service challenges”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

We came in on a not so busy night and originally where given a table close to the live musician which we did not like as we could not even had a conversation over the music. So we asked to be seated further at the back which made our waiter somewhat forget us. When they brought out our food it took forever and was already a little cold but not the kind of things you would be ok for them to just reheat. For the price just not a good experience.

Food was fantastic. Just a tip though if your looking for something simple eat at the bar or lounge menu is different and at half the price.
