About Ka'ana Kitchen at Andaz Maui
What we serve at Ka‘ana, we serve from the heart. We source from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. We only put on your plate what we feel is proper to serve. Our pairings speak to the ability to connect the elements of taste, smell, and touch with everything around us.
Our dishes are prepared using techniques from around the culinary world, but thought-out in accordance with our micro-climate. The way we prepare our fish, season our salads, and grill our meat depends not only on its origin, but what the weather tells us, how the swells on the ocean shape our mood, and how the land influences our feelings.
Here we hope to blur the lines between your kitchen and our restaurant, between what is external and what is internal. We invite you in, share our hopes, and create a unique dining experience that connects you to this place and its essence.

Ka'ana Kitchen at Andaz Maui Ratings and Reviews
it was a great choice to have a dinner at Ka'ana , especially if you stay at Andaz resort . The food was surprisingly amazing, we got 27 oz steak for $69 ONLY, Father's Day special. It tastes really great. And the Maui Sea bass was delicious too. The green avocado salad was so fresh and tasty. Nice mood here, enjoy live music if you come after 5:30pm with downstair's bar.
The kitchen is not a place for a "bargain" meal, it's a great experience and a great meal. Cocktails are wonderful. Service is outstanding, food is inventive and wonderful. We sit at one of the bars. You have a personal bar tender, the food is made in the open. Our bartender was Archer, he does a great job and is very personable.
We will go back.
Food was amazing, took care for my allergy but the food was amazing we shared ever and had the shrimp risotto( amazing), watermelon salad, grilled octopus and fresh catch. So fresh and flavors amazing. Pricey but worth it for special vacation.
We live on Oahu and love to sneak away to Maui from time to time. Oahu has some
amazing restaurants that we enjoy quite often. This was our second visit to Ka'ana
Kitchen and we were so delighted with our choices, that our server, Gwen assisted
in selecting - we wish we had another night to experience on this short trip to Wailea.
Everything we selected was just outstanding, and the overall winner was the chicken
entree - that we both wishes we had our own rather than sharing.....it was just so
yummy with very unique flavors.
You will not be disappointed...very creative, fresh, locally sourced veggies and fish
and pretty much everything on the menu is a winner. Bring a 'dart' so you can make
your selection without being frustrated:):):). Bon Appetit!
We were extremely disappointed... $300.00 for the three of us (including tip). Food quality was less than expected (requested salt to bring out some flavor), one entre dish quantity very small compared to others. Service was not to be found. Had to ask for Iced Tea and water refills, empty cocktail glasses sat on table, had to ask for table to be reset, food took forever to arrive... not the check though, it was brought immediately... Poor, very poor!!!
Andaz is my favorite place. I booked this for a place 2 weeks in advanced for Mother's I can take my mom for Mother's Day. Upon getting their 15 mins early I checked in with the girl in the front holding the Pad checking everyone in, and she told me and my mom to sit to the side and wait for my hostess. After siting there for about 20 mins, I got up and asked how long more would we need to wait because I saw her check in about 10 other reservations as we sat there. She told me she had forgot and checked up in already. What kind of service is this?
The food was good although the portions were extremely small. And the prices were rediculously expensive. It was more expensive to eat here than at Merriman's in Kapalua, and Maerriman's is the best on Maui. Get over yourself Ka'ana Kitchen. Also the drinks were $18 each and they were weak. If you spend $18 on a cocktail you expect to get your money's worth. I will never eat here again. Although the live music was awesome. This would be a great place, if the prices came down about 40% across the board.
After being seated we were poured water and then waited over 20 minute before our waiter arrived at all. There was no apology and from there it took time to get drinks food etc...overall for a party of 2 our dinner took 2 hours.
I also noted in my reservation it was a special occasion and that was not taken into consideration.
The food was good and the restaurant was nice but the service for us was not good.
Absolutely fantastic! We were a party of 3 and shared appetizers and main courses, so we could try multiple items. We were all raving about literally every single thing we were served. We had been to a number of other fine dining restaurants prior to our reservation here, including Duo Steak and Mama's Fish House. While both of those other restaurants have special places in our hearts and we love them, our meal at K'aana Kitchen was the best we had during this trip to Maui. The buttermilk chicken is out of this world good. We also had the Lobster Creole and the Maui Caught Fish entree. Portions were very reasonable for the items our waiter noted as "entree" items. For appetizers, we had the Watermelon Salad, the Wagyu Hanger Steak, and the Pork Belly. Appetizers are somewhat small, but the quality and presentation justifies the price. The music from the pool/bar below the restaurant was a bit loud, but it was nice music and it added to the ambiance. The view of the ocean is lovely. We had a wonderful time. Our expectations were exceeded, and our expectations were high! Thank you!
Ka'Ana Kitchen was a nice pleasant surprise for my wife and I. We were celebrating our 30th year of marriage and chose Ka'Ana Kitchen for dinner our last night in Maui. The hotel lobby and views are so beautiful so it's a perfect setting. I had the Shashimi appetizer and the seared Tuna a main course, accompanied with a glass of 2013 Groth Cabernet. The meal was really good and we loved the ambience as well. 5 Stars for this place!
Our waiter went from table to table with the same "description" of the menu because it was difficult to understand. We shared the octopus appetizer which was very bland. My husband had the "fried chicken which was tough & chewy. I would only let the waiter pour a little of the rich sauce over my fish. this place is trying to hard to be fancy. I only gave it 2 stars because of the atmosphere.
Our server, John, was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, as were his support staff. The food was outstanding, flavorful, creative and visually appealing, though my wife's Wagyu beef was slightly tougher than good marbling alone would suggest. But overall, a fantastic meal in a magical setting, overlooking the sun setting over the beach.
Excellent Service, Food and Ambiance! We love the freshness of their menu and also love to watch our dining delights (menu choices) being prepared right before our eyes; such artistry and so ONO!! Definitely a must for locals as well as visitors. Mahalo to all!
Staff extremely inefficient at seating, bringing menus and drink refills etc. The food was wonderful as usual. It's a shame they've forgotten how to serve and to wait on their customers. I long for the days when the Andaz just opened and the wait staff dressed appropriately and were professional.
Amazing food, a great band was playing at the bar while we watched the sun set from the balcony. Our server was very attentive and the sommelier was also incredibly knowledgeable and helpful..he didn't push the most expensive wine on us just what he thought was best. The dinner wasn't cheap, but worth it for our last night in Hawaii.
The cuisine is excelllent , extremely well prepared and presented. Good variety of selections with vegetarian options as well
Swrvice was attentive
The design is attractive and well designed with an open kitchen Interior and exterior dining
I'm certain the host thought we would appreciate sitting outdoors overlooking the bar and music but I think if the options are open they should ask
The bar area below was a bit noisy. But then the music began and it improved
Again it is certainly a should try restaurant on Maui
Ka'ana Kitchen, Apple Store meets fine dining. The food was innovative and well executed. The staff should learn how to listen better to the clientele. AND, for heaven sake, SLOW down. With that said, the food was FUN to eat and its presentation was clever. Good job.
