Both food and service were excellent. Would definitely go again. Keep in mind Kapalua can be windy so ladies may want to take a light cover for the evening.

The food and service here was so good we ate here twice! Dustin provided excellent service to our party of 6. The highlight was when the chef prepared the broth for the lobster dish at the table using a hot infusion siphon. Entertaining and delicious! Perfect!

Food is over priced and low quality. We were rushed. Waitress hovered, as soon as appetizers were done main course arrived. All over in 30 minutes. Felt like I was at Macdonald's. bill was over $250 for 2 people and a 30 minute dinner. This is my second time at this restaurant and it is my last.

Our first course was a split of fresh oysters. Not only did they not taste fresh, they looked dried up and puny. Shame on them for even serving them. My husband and I both ordered the fish special - yellowfin. Again so horribly after the fresh date that one bite was enough to have us put down our forks. The... More

We've been coming to The Banyan Tree for many, many years. It generally scores a four or five if you're counting stars. If I were to write this review ten years ago, I would have scored it a five. Today, it's four-ish for a few reasons: (1) it's just too packed with tourists and hotel guests (and that's ok, after... More

I often stay at Ritz Carlton Hotels as I love their properties and the perfect service. Often, though, I find the restaurants to be a disappointment (an exception being the Ritz on M in DC). Sorry to say that The Banyan Tree falls into the disappointing category. Of course the physical space, decor and service are spectacular. That's a Ritz... More

Our lobster miso soup was interesting but very overpriced and gave me a stomachache afterwards. Not sure that the lobster was fully cooked.

We stumbled upon this place when we were at the Dragon's Teeth Access Trail parking. It's a short walk on a nice path towards the Ritz pool area. The fish tacos were made with locally caught mahi-mahi. They were the best we've had. Very professional service. Beautiful surroundings, definitely worth the trip.

we had better experiences at the Banyan Tree previous years. we went there with the same excitement but unfortunately our experience was not the same. We ordered the catch of the day, e.g. we weren't told about the price of this dish (it's MP) and we didn't care, but when I asked to have some bread, I was told it's... More
