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.

Wow, great dining experience all round! The hotel and restaurant is spectacular, with great views over the tiered infinity pools and the ocean beyond. Warm, gentle breezes create an indoor/outdoor experience. The food is fantastic - really unusual dishes and flavors. The compressed and infused watermelon salad was unlike anything you've had before. The Wagyu Hanger steak was juicy and flavorful, as were the other entrees we ordered. Service couldn't have been more friendly. There's an energy about the staff that lets you know that everyone really enjoys working here, as opposed to so many other restaurants. Well done!

The view of the Pacific is amazing from the terrace. Ate there several times during our stay at the Andaz and absolutely everything we ordered was fantastic. Wait staff was extremely attentive and friendly. Can think of nothing to improve. Everything in Maui is expensive and they were in line with the rest of our experiences. I would definitely visit again.

Our server Steven was great. Very knowledgeable about menu and wine list. Everyone treated our kids great and made us feel comfortable. Fried chicken was standout, along with chocolate custard and guava cake desserts! Very cool atmosphere too.
The breakfast here is AMAZING!
The breakfast buffet is AMAZING! It is worth the extra money to have breakfast here. Everything is super fresh and the ingredients are local.
Cuisine, not just good food.
We have eaten well throughout our visit; however, this is the only one with cuisine as opposed to good food. While not inexpensive, you can easily pay the same or more elsewhere for "non-cuisine" grade. And by cuisine I don't mean "fancy", I mean well-conceived, and thoughtfully prepared and served.

Grey food, reasonable sized portions you can actually finish. Only complaint would be the limited by the glass wines.
Always an excellent experience
I booked this reservation for my boyfriend's birthday since he had not been here before. The server, i don't remember her name (tall blonde female), was very friendly, attentive and had great recommendations. The rest of the staff was also very attentive. The food was phenominal. The grilled octopus is the best on the island, it literally melts in your mouth. We had the abalone risotto (server's recommendation) and the lobster. Both were cooked perfectly. The wine selection is very well curated. We had the Ken Wright Pinot Noir. And the coconut sundae (also server's recommendation) was just the right dessert to end the night. It was a very successful birthday dinner. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This was one of the best meals ever. Everything from the moment we entered the restaurant was perfect. The entire staff is gracious, friendly, and understands hospitality. Mark our server and the rest of the service staff did an outstanding job throughout the entire meal. The special birthday dessert presentation was greatly appreciated. We had a suculent watermelon salad and one of the most tender grilled octopus appetizers. The fish and lobster entree courses perfectly prepared. Props to the chef and the entire kitchen staff for putting some love as well as technique into all the dishes. Dining at Ka 'ana Kitchen is a must in Wailea!

This was the best dinner we had on the island of Maui. We stayed at the Andaz, and took advantage of this on-site restaurant. From service, to presentation, to the quality of ingredients- they did not miss a beat. While waiting for our table, the bartenders made great cocktail recommendations based on our preferences. The meal was absolutely worth the price, I look forward to returning someday.
Amazing food, views, open kitchen!
The combination of foods and presentations were amazing! The ambiance was very romantic and the open kitchen concept kitchen was really great! The way that everything flowed from the service to the food was on point. The views were also amazing! Loved it!

We enjoyed dining at the Chef's Table with Rebecca as the line chef in front of us. It was so much fun. Everyone in the kitchen was high energy and we felt like we were I. A cooking class. The food was outstanding!! We have enjoyed dining here before and have never been disappointed!!

This place is AMAZING! Such interesting ingredient combinations that totally work - octopus with goat cheese, ahi with burrata, who knew?? Gorgeous views and fabulous service. Interesting fresh twist on tropical cocktails. Love seeing the open kitchen at work.
Suprised this was so good!
I got a nice seat with a view, and I was happy until a party of 20 got together and just stood in the stair way, I could not hear myself think! Why did the staff let this go on. It almost ruined our dinner. We asked to be moved, when in my opinion they should have done something about the misplaced crowd of people. The food was great, octopus salad, Lobster Créole, great Champaign. I would come back...

An experience like no other on the island. The chef and his team were wonderful! Make sure you get their version of chicken and waffles and don't miss the octopus salad! It's a true infusion of taste!

It is lovely to come back to a restaurant and find that, if anything, it's improved. The service, food, everything was great. The only problem is their reservation process. They only seem to take reservations for 5:30 and 8:30. So if that is the case it is worth while calling and asking to be put through to the restaurant. They will do their best to accommodate your preferences! The downstairs bar is also lovely. We will back.

Grilled Octopus fabulous great wines John our server was very knowledgeable about the wines and great attending my family. I chose early seating because I brought my grandchildren and he was so kind and patient with them ages 6 and 8 A perfect evening
Great for breakfast and dinner
We are here twice on our recent trip to Wailea. We were staying at a nearby hotel and could walk along the ocean path to Andaz which was great. The ambiance and decor is great and tables are well spaced. This place is pricey but the quality of the food was worth it. Breakfast buffet is looked great. I had the cinnamon roll pancakes from the a la carte menu which were amazing. Dinner with spouse and 2 tweens was also a very nice night out. The menu is a bit limited but the kids liked trying new things as we shared most plates family style. We had the lobster, fried chicken, shrimp and a few other items and all were good. There is also a kids menu. Great place for excellent food in a casual warm atmosphere.
Enjoyable, one-of-a-kind, Maui food journey
Local, delicious food prepared with integrity and creativity. JD was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. He helped us choose some fantastic plates to share, coursed them perfectly and paired wines with each. We especially loved the grilled octopus with asparagus salad and the Maui Gold pineapple with housemade speck and chèvre, wagyu hanger and amazing abalone risotto. One of our best meals in Maui, and really just about anywhere. Note: we were seated on the lanai which definitely elevated the experience.

Food quality not as good as previous visits and per other reviews, high prices and appetizer sizes for entrees. Won't be back
Amazing as always!
This restaurant is incredible in all aspects: the service- JD and his crew are spot on! The freshness of all that's offered. My Opa was so wonderfully prepared! My husband's dish was the lobster, delish! He started with the shrimp appetizer and it was great. The flavors are well thought of and it's absolutely our favorite restaurant on Maui. It's a must, don't even think of skipping this place. Prices are high but so is everything else on the island! You might as well enjoy what you pay for!
If you're in Maui, you should definitely eat here!
Ka'ana is a farm-to-table concept kitchen. I recommend sitting outside where they often have live music. The risotto was the best I've ever had! Our server was attentive and engaging. Highly recommended for romantic evening! Visit around 5:30/6 to watch the sunset.
Very disappointed in our experience. The server seemed "put out" to answer our questions. She got one of our entrée orders wrong and we had to wait for the correction. There were no apologies. While the food was tasty, it was very pricey. They should offer some wines at less than $20/glass, or $75/bottle.
