“Very Expensive But Worth It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Just what the title says. This was the most expensive meal we had on Maui this year, but the food, service and ambiance were worth the cost.

“You get what you pay for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

We paid a lot and got a lot. The view, the scenery, the service, the quality of food, the drinks and the dessert were all top of the line. We were given a table right on the water where brave ducks and other small birds come close in search of scraps. If you're ornithophobic, I don't recommend this place. If you aren't then you will enjoy their bravado. It's quite cute actually. I ordered the NY Strip which was perfect. If you're willing to pay a high price for a great dining experience, I recommend this restaurant. It's great for couples and dinner, very romantic.

“It Was Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

...but not great. We went for a very late night dinner after 3-4 hour reservation waits at Whaler's Village (11pm -12am for dinner? Ummmmm...no), so showed up at Son'z about 45 minutes or so before closing.

The food was good. In fact, I'd probably call it very good. I had the 22oz. bone-in ribeye, and it was flavorful and cooked darn near to perfection. Was it the best steak I've had? No, but it was very good. My girlfriend had the mahi-mahi, which was good as well.

As with most restaurants of this caliber, everything needs to be ordered ala carte. That's fine except when you forget to do it. D'oh!! Unfortunately by the time the food came and I completely forgot to order the garlic smashed potatoes I wanted, the kitchen was closed. Oh well. I did find it a bit weird though that I wasn't asked when I ordered if I would like any sides. But at the end of the day, it was my fault, not theirs.

Had the mozarella sticks for an appetizer, which were good, and the drinks were just okay. The drinks were on par with drinks at other venues on the Hyatt property, which isn't great to begin with. Most drinks at restaurants of this caliber are incredibly good.

Overall a good experience, with beautiful scenery and friendly swans and ducks. :)

“Arrogant hostess attempts to ruin Mother's Day dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We came here for Mother's Day dinner this year. We were excited to try a new restaurant. My husband came down to check in for our reservation and she pointed to the table we were getting and told him they had to set it up. it was a nice table in the centre of the restaurant- perfect for mothers day. When I came down with my four kids, two of which were sleeping in the stroller, she wanted to move us to the back of the restaurant and have my sleeping children parked away from my table- as if they were pieces of luggage! At the same time a group of six people without a reservation walked in, and she was going to give them the first table she promised my husband. After my husband argued with another waitress, practically begging for them not to ruin the evening for us, the other waitress seated all of us at the original table. The restaurant was not full, in fact it was clearing out. To be honest with you, my husband spent more on a bottle of wine than most tables of six spent altogether. We don't plan to ever come to this restaurant. We can afford to eat anywhere. If I wanted to be greeted and treated badly by a snotty, stuck up, loser HOSTESS, I could have gone to the Hyatt in Toronto! The service here is a disgrace to the Island of Maui, where everyone there is so
family friendly. The next day we went to Leilani's on the beach and had such a wonderful time!
