Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali Ratings and Reviews

We had such a wonderful meal at Leilani's. The view was wonderful right on Kaanapali Beach with a lovely sunset. I had the Seafood Pasta which was delish with fish, shrimp and lobster in an excellent Meyer lemon sauce. My dad had the prime rib which was the best he's ever had. He shared a bite with me and I have to agree. Lovely meal with even lovelier views!

Our entrees came to the table before we'd finished our appetizers. The waiter checked on us so many times and tried to make chit chat, that it intruded on our ability to have a conversation between us. The fish was good. The steak was poor - very small and overdone. There is a tree right next to the restaurant that is home to a flock of noisy birds - who reach a crescendo before sun sets. It was so noisy it was hard to hear each other unless sitting very close.

Had our last night in paradise here. I have heard that Leilani's is owned by the same company as Hula Grill next door but boy was the service and experience different! At Leilani's, at check in, you are greeted like you've arrived at a good friend's home for dinner or almost like they are family owned. Genuine smiles by the hostesses. Our waiter was amazing, I think his name was Will. Knew the menu very well and gave excellent recommendations. Never seemed in a rush, knew it was our last night and let us soak it all in. A very gracious host. Hawaii lacks "professional" waiters, lots of young transplants from the mainland that aren't well trained, but not at Leilani's. It was our best meal all week- for the view, the hospitality, and that hula pie!

Wonderful location right on the beach. We were in the front so we were able to eat while watching the sun go down. Great location. Waiter was terrific. Water glass was never empty and the food was great. It is pricey but worth it.

It had been years since we've been to Leilani's and now that we live in Maui, it was like coming back home. This wonderful experience started at the front desk...when I check in for our 7:15 reservations made on Opentable over a week ago. I requested a window table. The hostess couldn't find my reservation because it turned out I had mistakenly made it for the Next night! (Senior moment) Not a problem. They immediately sat us at a fantastic table for 2 on the outside railing with a view to die for!
Frank did a great job as our waiter....super friendly and helpful...noting my wife's food allergies. My wife ordered the Caesar salad, I ordered the Wedge....the only disappointing part of the evening. The Wedge was not only very tiny....but it was warm...and I love ice-cold lettuce right out of the refrig. This had obviously been sitting out in the warm kitchen. My wife had the Pork Tenderloin - fantastic...and I had the Prime Rib....which I actually liked better than Kimo's PR..and that one's hard to beat! We can't wait to come back with our out-of-town guest. Note: Same owners as Kimo's....a view just as nice, easier parking and outside dining. Word of caution - if you're eating inside...especially with a group, it can be hot and stuffy....so always request a table as close to the outside as possible. Same goes for Kimo's. - john k

We always end our Maui Vacation with Leilani's. They are so consistant and fun. The seafood is fresh, the King Crab is insane, the table bread is addicting and the Hula Pie is a must. The service is always "on point" and professional. I have been dining at Leilani's since the mid 80's as a child and continue today as a parent with two kids myself. Thanks again Leilani's!

We made a reservation on open table, for 5 people at 6:30. We were seated promptly. Our server was professional and offered good information about the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meals, drinks and wine were great. View of sunset and Kaanapali beach walk was terrific !

Lelani's is one of those places you leave and go WOW! Atmosphere and staff are amazing! It's a must go to when visiting Maui! Try something new and you won't be dissappinted! Love this place and will continue to visit every time!

We enjoyed eating here on our last night in Maui. We picked it because it was in walking distance from our hotel, and it turned out to be a great pick! The Lei's Lemonade was delicious. ;) The food was delicious, and the price range was comparable to most Maui restaurants.
