“One of the Best for Drinks and Appetizers on Maui”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Having a few drinks and a few appetizers at the Four Seasons Lobby Lounge is almost like dinner at Mama’s Fish House. It’s one of those occasions that highlights your vacation; the spacious grounds with its tiki torches and lighted fountains, the nice breeze and beautiful sunset all the while enjoying live entertainment. All would be just an above average occasion, except the food and attentive service just makes it all the more memorable. Unlike the Four Seasons Restaurants, the Lobby Lounge appears to accept casual apparel. We observed shorts and sandals to office casual. Regarding seating, it can be difficult to find that perfect romantic spot. Just sit anywhere and enjoy the moment. And if you must have that particular spot that is so feng shui, just let your waitress Cooper or the Nick the host know and they will save it for you when it becomes available. This is one of those special spots that begs you to linger and enjoy. Kind of like Steve Wynn’s Lake of Dreams in Las Vegas.

Now the drinks are probable all special in their own right. Some more special then the rest. To ferret out that special drink, I again urge you to probe your food and beverage server. Cooper came through yet again helping me to choose one of the best Mai Tai’s I ever had - called the Kipahulu lulu. It’s the bartenders’ award winning creation, and it will grab your tongue in a pleasurable sort of way making you glade you chose it.

Drinks ordered, we now focused on appetizers. Located near the back of the extensive libation menu. Called the “bites to share” the appetizer page is uniquely displayed by type and price. The appetizers are meant to share with some one and we intended to share three of them. We only made it to two. The first was the Goat Cheese Fritters that you dip into a fennel and honey dip. Gah! It was unrepentantly delicious. I used the chop sticks to cut each round fritter in half and dip into the sauce. The next item was the Flat Bread. Seemingly innocuous, the addition of shrimp, Maui onion and white cheddar gave it a culinary life of its own. It went well with my wife’s Pinot Noir. Not so much paring with my drink, but who cares! I’m having a Kipahulu lulu!! The third appetizer that never was, was the Natural Beef Sliders. Host, Nick confirmed it would have been another good choice had we had room to accommodate it. It will have to wait until the next time we visit Hawaii’s Garden Isle.

“Evening Drinks”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Lobby Lounge is a great place to hang out in the evenings for a drink and a quick bite to eat. There is usually live music and a great crowd.

“Great place to stop before dinner.”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We really enjoyed the view and just stopping to have a drink before we headed off to dinner at night. Mark was awesome. We also had him for the Ultimate Dinner and he was very friendly.
