This review is for the new menu/restaurant which we ate at in late December. We were the first table to arrive (at 5:00 when they opened) and our meal took 2.5 hours! We didn't order multiple courses, it was just really slow (taking island time to a whole new level). For example, entrees came out 10 minutes apart between first... More

The food here was amazing. The service was tremendous. We dined on the outdoor patio and the atmosphere was spectacular.

Lanai City Grille had its grand reopening just two weeks ago, and we were both impressed by the result. The Lanai signature was the best piece of meat we've had in US and we would recommend it to anyone except vegetarians :) The double chocolate cookie desert is just yammie....

Our trip was delayed , but it turned out to be an excellent trip. We lost $199 from 808 Hummer being thieves, but that is another review. The Hotel is a great example of the feel of Lanai, being a quaint experience . Clean and met our needs. The diner had an excellent low-key feel, and excellent choices. It was... More

Not a lot of restaurants in town and this one may be the fanciest. It was simple food but very good. Wait staff very friendly

Lanai City Grill is located inside Hotel Lana'i, and is a fabulous spot to try out for dinner. From Sushi, to Entrees to Dessert, I've never had a meal I didn't LOVE. The food and drinks are a bit pricey. However, not as expansive as the restaurants you'll find in the Four Seasons Resorts. It's an adorable, quaint restaurant, with... More

We ended up eating in the restaurant once and the bar area twice during our recent visit. Very good food (warning - the appetizers are like a meal in themselves), charming old-style setting, and their outside lounge area (in the back) was a fantastic finish to our visiting under the stars and enjoying the night. We loved it!

I have been here a couple of times. This is a Bev Gannon restaurant and her food is always amazing, although big portions, hence, the food baby. I recommend trying to various flavors of mashed potatoes. Also, the atmosphere here is very cozy and service is wonderful.

Staying at the 4 Seasons Hotel at Manele Bay, you have essentially two restaurants for dining in the evening. A few of us decided to make the 25 minute trip to eat at the Lanai City Grille. We loved it. The place is a comfortable bungalow, with beautiful wood tables and chairs. The mixed drinks, island-style, are well done and... More
