From the start we knew something was off. Had a nice table with ocean view but menus arrive after you are seated which is strange cause you are not immediately greeted. Our waiter, Eric, provided horrible service and could barely hold a conversation and was not attentive whatsoever. Had to ask host for drinks that took forever. Food was mediocre and prices were outrageous. $76 for a piece of steak (sides are extra) and wasn't even very good. $16 for a salad that had lettuce & Avacados was ridiculous. I assume you are paying for the view since menu is seriously lacking. Ahi appetizer not good. Want some excellent ahi, get the ahi nachos at the Westin...those are the bomb! Kids food was just as bad. After we finally escaped the horrible service we went to get change at the hotel market and they refused to give us change for the valet guys. Daniella said she couldn't open the register...um how hard could it be? Concierge was no help either. Valet guys were awesome though and got a tip as it was deserved since they seem to be the only ones who know how to be serviceable and friendly. Will never go to st Regis for anything again!

I'm seriously not kidding. This was one of the best meals I've ever gotten at a restaurant. We had some problems with the hotel, but this restaurant was outstanding. It's expensive, but if you can do one expensive meal during your stay, this is one you should consider.

The restaurant is lovely. We dined at Kauai Grill twice while in Princeville. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We had an ocean view while dining. One evening we were there in time for the sunset! Awesome!

We decided to try the Kauai Grill at the Saint Regis, since we had eaten previously at the Makaha Terrace and we were staying at the hotel. What a great choice! The service, the view, and every dish was to be remembered. This will be one of our top 3 restaurants ever. Since this was over a year ago, I do not remember what we had, but I remember that we were plenty overwhelmed. Worth every penny, which means it is wort as lot.
