RumFire's exquisite dining room is the perfect choice for a memorable dinner, artfully blending locally sourced cuisine with global influences.

Food and service was great both times we ate there. Wasn't very keen on the popcorn/party mix to snack on at the beginning- how about some bread instead?

“Not a treat”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

It's so convenient to eat at Rum Fire if you're staying at the Sheraton, but you might try to resist the temptation. At sunset the hostess tried to sit us facing east and when we said we'd like to see the setting sun, the she argued that it was the better view facing away from the sun... Maybe some are persuaded by that argument, but we persisted and got front row seats. The service was efficient if not brusque, and when you're seated in the large booths facing the water the servers can't see when you need something. All of the food was over-seasoned and salty.

“A nice surprise.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This was the big surprise at this resort. I'm a foodie and expected nothing close to this on Kauai. The staff were attentive and friendly (very different than the rest of the resort, maybe because they depend on tips). The drinks were very good. I had the Brussels sprout appetizer which was very tasty and the ahi tuna entree which was done perfectly. My partner had the mushroom ravioli which had a real nice sauce with it. My one peeve is they charged two dollars for bread. At this price point that's stingy, Sheraton. The restaurant interior was nicely done, miles ahead of the rest of the resort, and had nice views of the ocean. So if you're on that side of the island go for it.

“Perfect Dinner with a view”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a beautiful restaurant with a great view. The food is outstanding. I got the Pork Chop with fingerling potatoes and veggies. Cooked perfectly and delicious. My husband had the catch of the day and he loved it. Got the shrimp lumpia that is a must have. For dessert we got the flourless chocolate sea salt cake with raspberry coulis and vanilla caramel ice cream, Cognac and Cafe Koloa, all totally wonderful. Excellent service to go along with it all.

Highly recommended for a lovely evening.

“Worth skipping the local restaurants and trying this place on the Sheraton property.”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We don't typically eat on restaurant properties we stay at as we find them not up to the quality of those off the property. Not so with Rum Fire. It is only about two years old but it is easily in the top 5 on the island. My wife and I split a salad and had a different fish dish. Everything is ala carte, so it is a bit pricey but
everything else screams fabulous.
