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 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.
Food was excellent unusual and fun! Octopus was eruptions. The bean noodle dish was horrible, but the rest of the entrees and as we say, " pupus", were delicious.
Ambience was exceptional. Wait staff were attentive but not hovering.. definitely one of my favorite dinning establishments
It's been two years since last we were in Maui, but I still have fond memories of our meal at Ka'ana Kitchen. We were very excited to have the chance to dine there again this trip. The meal was EXQUISITE!! Every taste blew my mind. My wife and I shared everything (which is the style here). We had three small plates and two big plates. Our small plates were black sesame noodles, hanger steak and watermelon salad. Though they were all delicious, the hanger steak was my favorite. The char was just perfect and the beef was melt in your mouth tender. Our mains were the risotto with shrimp and corn and the ahi tuna with purple sweet potatoes. The only fault I can find with the risotto is there were only three shrimp. One or two more would have been nice. My wife loved the ahi, but I thought it could have benefited from a bit more seasoning. (But really, this is me being a little nit picky). Dessert was AMAZING. We ordered the coconut sundae. OMG!! And the s'more cake which was a very fancy version of the classic. My final tip is you really can't go wrong here. Every item on the menu will entice you and you will second guess yourself as you see beautiful plates of food pass on their way to other tables. But don't doubt yourself. Whatever you ordered will make you certain it was the best choice!!
Overall food was excellent!
Different/fun flavors and pairings of food.
Waiter was too over the top and loved to talk about himself... and then got defensive when we asked specifics about the menu. Very strange experience. They don't appear to care much if you're celebrating an anniversary.
Overall I'd rate it a 3.75/5
The waiter and staff were phenomenal and so educated on the delicacy of all meals. They had a passion for explaining and representing each unique plate. You will not find better food anywhere. The ingredients and love in each presentation is overwhelmingly amazing. We loved it! The staff makes the entire experience way more enjoyable. You can't tell if anyone is a food runner because even the manager will pitch in with such positive vibes for every task. It's an incredible dining experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
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.
My husband and I stayed at the Andaz and we heard wonderful things about this restaurant. We were not dissappointed!! The food was fresh and light but with so much flavor. Sunset was beautiful from the patio. We will definitely come again on our next visit!
