“Incredible Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We have had many wonderful dining experiences in Maui, but this was outstanding. The service is attentive and the dining room feels very comfortable and inviting. Two of us started with the Caesar salad which was very good, and the bread was truly delicious. Two at our table ordered the filet which was melt-in-your -mouth delicious, with an incredible sauce, two ordered the Tequila Shrimp which was delicious, and one person ordered the meatballs. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and we did finish with one dessert. We had the ice cream pie with macadamia nuts and coconut. We ordered several ice cream desserts while in Maui, but this was our favorite. This restaurant is expensive, even by Maui standards, but the food is worth it.

“Lahaina perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We dined at the restaurant for our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff were really nice and made us feel very special. We received a signed card and had our photo taken which was later send to us via email. Then came the serious part - the dining.
The menu is not large but has an excellent variety with the highlight being the combining of local produce. We started with "the cakewalk" - a maine lobster crab cake, pacific nw shrimp cake and a seared ahi cake. Delicate flavours were evident with the cakes and accompanying sauces.
My wife had the lamb shank for entree whilst I had the opakapaka. Both were specials and both were excellent. The mash that was used on both meals was sublime.
Fortunately there was room for a shared dessert and this was the kula lime tart. This was a real highlight especially with the macadamia crust.
Throughout the service had been prompt, efficient and knowledgeable whilst unobtrusive.
They really know what they are doing.
For us it was a memorable evening.

“Fantastic dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

We ate here last night for the first time and loved it. The name is deceiving, this is no "grill" - its a high end gourmet restaurant with quite a list of creative and wonderful items. Great food, attentive staff. It is expensive but worth it.

“Why did I go there?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

I mean, I am a Vegetarian, so why go to a grill? So, unsurprisingly, my choices were quite limited, whereas the wife was very happy from the start. But, surprisingly, I was impressed. Greatest experience in grilled Veggies I ever had, highly recommended. HINT: the "grill" is quite an understatement, dress up, do not go in surfing outfit, the place deserves it... ;-)
