Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali Ratings and Reviews

Loved every course. We split the entree and they did excellent job. More expensive places just bring us an extra plate. Fish cooked to perfection. Something we did not get earlier this week at a much more "elite" restaurant earlier this week in downtown Lāhainā.
Definitely will go there again this Maui visit.

Food and swevice were good. We both had fish and the dishes were nicely seasoned and well presented. Bread served with dinner was not as good as prior visits and disappointed they are no longer giving free hula pies on return visits to restaurant.

Was really impressed. Seated right away, great table w a view. Service was good but in no way pushy. Despite the fact that it's in a high tourist area, it was super relaxed and the food was good and reasonable given the location. Would definitely go again

Went twice on our honeymoon. My wife loved it. She had the Parmesean crusted catch of the day. I had the filet. Both were well worth the price. Hula pie for dessert is a definitely worth a try. Never heard of it before. It was really good. Overall great place. Would definitely go back when were in Maui.

I made the reservation one day in advance but was pleasantly surprised to find out we got a table overlooking the sun setting over the ocean. It wasn't expected but appreciated just the same. The bottled sparkling water was not our first choice but the Crystal Guyser was fine. We had salads since we are not big eaters and they were delicious. With just a salad we had room for desert so my wife chose vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and I chose the sorbet trio. The trio was of nearby flavors of strawberry, mango, and dragonfruit. Absolutely delicious all around. The waitress was very nice along with the team of hostesses. A wonderful experience one again. We will be back before this vacation ends.

We had reservations and requested an oceanfront table. Upon arrival, the hostess said there would be a waiting list but seating one row back was available, which we agreed to. She then turned us over to another seating person who wanted to seat us at the back wall and said there would be at least a 30 minute wait for a table one row back. After a minor tiff with her and my husband requesting that she go downstairs and bring the original hostess up to discuss this, she seated us at an empty table in the row we were promised. That said, we put it behind us and had a very nice dinner. Our server was friendly and attentive and timed our salads perfectly after we finished our drinks. My husband's seafood pasta was excellent with a wonderful cream sauce and a small lobster tail, a very good value for the money. My seared ahi was top quality and the soy mushroom sauce excellent. My only "con" was that the dish, including the rice and sauce was cold. I expect the ahi to be cold inside but was disappointed that the rest of the dish was also. We were reminded that the noise level is high, which we'd forgotten from our visit a year ago.

Leilani's has it all...great ocean front dining, wonderful fresh fish, delightful servers, and reasonable prices..especially on their terrific Early Bird Three Course Dinner...appetizer entre and dessert. There may be a wait to get in if you do not have reservations...but it is worth it!

We had friends coming to visit Maui for the first time. This restaurant is just down the hill from our condo in Ka'anapali Royal. I was glad we had made reservations because there was a significant line of folks waiting. Our server was very pleasant. The fresh fish choices were fantastic.

Our experience at Leilani's was good. We weren't blown away by anything. The food was good, service was good, outdoor seating and view were great! More affordable than other restaurants in the area. Overall pretty decent and we'd go back.

Good basic restaurant on a long beach in Maui, located among a row of soulless hotels without any meaningful restaurants . Great sunset views of Molokai and Lanai. Simple but good menu, friendly waiters, and a reasonable but not outstanding wine list. If you stay somewhere on Kaanapali Beach in Lahaina, this is the right place for everyday dinners.
