Gerard's Restaurant Maui Ratings and Reviews
Gerard's is the best restaurant on the island for food. It may not have the ocean view or phenomenal hotel accommodations, but for food quality and flavor, it can't be beat. Gerard's has been on the island for 35 years, so they must be doing something right.
We love Gerard's and dine there occasionally as we live on Maui and like to go to Lahaina. We especially love staying at the Plantation Inn where it is located.
This time for Father's Day it just wasn't great. In particular the foie gras liver dish was unconventional and lacked much flavor. The rest was good but unmemorable except the mushroom appetizer
Gerards is a gem of a restaurant. The food we all chose was the daily fish special and was delicious. Service was excellent - friendly, accurate, and prompt. The waiter, Scott, was helpful with menu choices. The southern plantation ambiance is charming and all employees were cordial. We were able to dine on the porch on a beautiful evening. The French martini cocktail was superb.
Absolutely loved this place. My wife and I came on our honeymoon. We were treated so kindly and the staff helped us handle what could've been a very awkward interaction with another guest with much professionalism. My wife and I felt like we were being served a culinary treat from friends in our own home. Such great service! And the food was incredible!! Lobster bisque and then our entrees (I got ono and my wife got fillet) were amazing. Would definitely go back.
The chilled cucumber soup was an inspiration! The desserts lovely delicately balanced flavors. The service was interactive and delightfully frothy.
Overall I could not reccomend them highly enough! The chef & staff were also very responsive to my food allergy needs.
Plan a solid two hours for the whole dining experience.
We came for an early dinner with our young children, ages 5,3 and 1. The servers were very accommodating and put in our kids' order first. Please note that they do not have the go-to kiddie cups or coloring page menus, so if you need that be sure to byob. We had a lovely dinner and some highlights included the mushroom appetizer as well as the snapper dumplings. The daily catches were delicious and the chocolate mousse was a great finish to our meal.
Our experience was absolutely fabulous from A-Z, we have dined here over a dozen of time and it never disappoints!! The food is the best on Maui and the service as well, great wine list as well and very affordable for the quality, thanks to Gerard and staff for the always great dinner experience.
This is one of our favorite restaurants on Maui. Make sure to request a table on the porch. All four of us had great meals. The rack of lamb drew rave reviews from 2 dinner companions. And make sure to save room for dessert. The porch is cozy, and it seems we always wind up chatting with diners at adjacent tables, just adding to the charm. The menu remains consistent with our previous visits over the last 10 years.
We enjou fine dining French Faire at Gerards. Servers always great and food is wonderful! We enjoyed The Mahi, Papio, salad, Foie Gras. Best Foie Gras anywhere! The sauces on fish were excellent!
Only disappointing thing was the prices on wine list are very high for most wines. They do have a few affordables.
We've been coming here for years. This time we celebrated my wife's birthday. We started by splitting the mushroom puff pastry appetizer. Then we both had the Mahi special which was cooked to perfection. For dessert, my wife had the creme caramel and I had the chocolate cake. The cake was flour less but they use an almond flour that makes it lighter than most flourless cakes. It was excellent.
Gerard's is not a "grab-a-bite" place. Its location in an old plantation house sets the atmosphere of "old world" style, grace, elegance and service. We had a wonderful dinner of fresh fish and an all-around nice, nice dinning experience. I would highly recommend it, especially for important occasions but we are looking forward to returning more frequently just because we had such an enjoyable time there.
Traditional fish preparation was amazing. Gerhard's Salad and cucumber soup were excellent as always.
Only disappointing food was the Rock Road Dessert. Caramel sauce was gritty. The ice cream was melting when it was served.
Our server seemed a little inexperienced.
It was our last night in Maui and we wanted a memorable meal- we found it! The historic bed and breakfast inn was beautiful, the service was outstanding and the food was amazing! I was even lucky enough to meet the charming, refined and gracious chef. From the appetizers to the entree to dessert was truly a dining experience. We will definitely visit again!
As a French family from Alsace this is by far the best meal and experience we have had since the 2 years we have been living in the US. The service was excellent, and the food was absolutely perfect. We had foie gras first and then a local fish which was tasty and served with refined sides. You can go with closed eyes!!
Since I have been a regular diner for many years , I don't know what more I can say about Gerard's. In my opinion, it is the best restaurant in Hawaii and one of the best in the US. The food is outstanding; service is excellent even with difficulty in finding fine dining help in Hawaii; and anyone who appreciates fabulous food, service and atmosphere will not be disappointed.
I have dined at least 125 times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. Great for groups as well as couples.
When I was there on 3/31/17, the owners of Mama's Fish House in Paia were there entertaining a group of friends for Mrs. Mama's birthday. The group included their chef. If the owners of a fantastic restaurant like Mama' s entertain at GERARD'S it goes without saying it is a fabulous place to dine when you are on Maui
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Gerard's about a year ago and had a great meal, so we were anxious to return, this time with our family. I had raved to my family about the filet, so 5 out of our party of 6 ordered it. At that point the waitress informed us that the chef encourages variety at the table and would be displeased with our order. She encouraged some of us to order something else. When we all wanted to stick with our original order she said "well, I don't know how this is going to go with the chef". In the end, we were "allowed" to order 5 filets, but the exchange with the waitress was awkward and ruined our enjoyment of the meal and the rest of the experience. My husband and I both agree that we won't be going back again.
This place is such an incredible restaurant. It was my brother-in-laws birthday and my first visit to Gerard's. I got a chance to talk with Gerard about the food and was so impressed with the care, preparation and effort that goes into these complicated and absolutely delicious dishes. The food was awesome, service great and ambiance lovely. Recommend to anyone on island to check it out.
