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
We dined there on our last day of our Maui vacation. We got there apparently at the same time as everybody else so staff was extremely busy. Still they made an effort to take care of us in a calm way.
WE had the watermelon salad and green ceviche as starters and fish of the day and Ahi as entrees. which all turned out to be well prepared and of great fresh and unique taste.
Overall, while on the expensive side, definitely worth the experience.
We've enjoyed frequent dining at this lovely restaurant in the snappy newish Maui Andaz since it opened. Great service, innovative cuisine and the octopus is still to die for. The dining al fresco here has always been sublime as the restaurant overlooks a lovely poolside bar just beneath the restaurant, leading the eye to ocean and sunset views just beyond. The setting has been so idyllic one has to wonder why they would screw it all up by turning the pool bar into a sports bar with huge flat screen TVs. Mind you, I've nothing against sports bars, just not when I'm trying to enjoy a lovely oceanside dinner. Verdict: Fine dining now with the ambiance of a brew pub.
We had a wonderful time. The food is superb. The flavor combinations are amazing. The service exceptional. The wine list is excellent too! The watermelon salad and wagyu beef dishes were my favorite. The free valet parking is also a wonderful addition. Andaz has the dining experience mastered.
Forgot our food - gave us check and disappeared - weird - we waited and waited . Friendly about misunderstanding once waiter came back - brought food - this is when it went south. Menu is silly - farm to table mish-mash of weird choices - I had pork belly which was dropped on top of mushy spinach (I think it was spinach) - seriously inedible - actually quite terrible, spit into napkin bad... Wife's dish was not good either - after all confusion with bill - no comps, nothing. Just a "sorry about that"!and we were given back the same check - valet took 20 minutes - other reviews are positive - people very friendly, maybe we had bad luck...
I will say this - the decor, view, and ambience are incredible.
Ka'ana Kitchen was our best meal in Maui HANDS DOWN! The food was absolutely delicious with unique and local tastes, the drinks were outstanding and the service was 100% filled with the Aloha spirit!! Wish we had a chance to go more than once! We will definitely be back during our next trip!
We stayed at Andaz, so the restaurant was the default for onsite breakfast. It was a great way to start each day in Maui. The food was great, particularly the locally sourced and Asian-influenced options - and the fresh juice bar incorporated into the buffet was over the top. We had dinner a couple of times as well - and the food was as tasty as it was beautiful. The service was particularly attentive (in the mornings Eddie and Kristin, and in the evening John W and Jeff). If you eat outside the view's a pretty good bonus.
We had gone here with high hopes. Many of our friends love this restaurant. Service was off for a place of this caliber. Nothing needed to be ordered on our next visit. Nothing memorable besides my wife's company. We went for breakfast and dinner so we tried.
Beautiful setting and excellent service but the menu was hard to understand, requiring the waiter to explain it for what seemed like 10 minutes. The menu is designed so that all entrees are shared yet the portion size is ridiculously small and the prices unreasonably high. The food was tastey enough but for the value we would never dine there again or recommend it. We understand and are happy to the pay the high prices of this type of fine dining but this was absurd. Morimoto also at the Andez is high priced but much better food and value.
Our server was pretty unfriendly and when we ordered another drink acted as though we couldn't afford another.
She gave the vibe and attitude that she was upset she got our table as if we couldn't afford it and wouldn't tip??
We wouldn't dine here if we couldn't afford it.
We still tipped nicely but won't be returning as the service sucks.
