Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali Ratings and Reviews
Great staff!!! Everyone has such positive energy!!! Wow! How do you do it! The food was excellent! I have the seafood pasta with all kinds of local fish. My son and husband had the steak and filet. The Hula pie is a Maui Must Have! We even booked another night here for dinner because they are so consistent! Thank you!
We love Leilani's...if we think ahead soon enough to get reservations. Yes, it is very popular, and for good reasons: wonderful food, from pupus to full course meals with amazing sauces on delicious local fish. Our server, Spencer, was terrific...cordial, efficient, and a true pro at his work. And of course, the waterfront location of this restaurant on the beautiful Ka'anpali boardwalk is divine. It is a bit pricey...but...it IS Maui!!!
Our fish was over cooked. I could have asked to have it redone but with a big party including kids it makes it difficult. For a reservation we were seated in the sun which made it difficult to see and we sweated all through dinner. Not very enjoyable sweating with over cooked fish (dry fish). The service was friendly.
Great food, amazing service, unbeatable views. Will definitely come back. Erin our waiter was outstanding, he went above and beyond to accommodate our needs, very respectful, excellent manners and knowledgeable about the menu. A must for visitors to Maui. I particularly recommend the second level as has better views and is less noisy (separate waiting list).
Food was fair not great.
Portions for the money were small.
Service was poor and initially the seating was not good at all.
The other people we were with also complained about the same things and said they were very disappointed overall with the restaurant and will not go back!
Excellent location to see the sunset. Most seats make it easy to view. And the location of the restaurant is walkable from many Kaanapali hotels, we walked from the Hyatt.
Everyday there are different fish to choose from based on the catch of the day. The fish a matched with one of four preparations. We tried each at our table and no one was disappointed. One person ordered the sea food pasta which had each of the fish in addition to a lobster tail and shrimp. We all thought her meal was the best.
We were lucky enough to have a birthday at our table that evening so we were treated to Hula Pie. It has its own plate and fork with the Hula logo. This ice cream treat is worth every calorie!
Service was excellent. Don't worry if you have to wait for your table the restaurant is attached to a nice mall or you can walk the beach.
Using Open Table to make our dinner reservations was wonderful! Since parking is such a prized possession in Maui, having our parking validated made the experience great! The food, drinks, and service was great! We will go back the next time we are in Maui!
It's my traditional farewell dinner on the last night of my annual Maui vacation on Kaanapali Beach. The open air ambiance, the ocean view and Sunset, the wine and delicious catch of the day(plus hula pie for dessert) caps off another magnificent experience.
