Leilani's on the Beach - Kaanapali Ratings and Reviews
We made a reservation through Open Table, arrived on time, but still waited 30 minutes to be seated in a cramped part of the dining room right by the server's station. The restaurant was not at capacity, so I was puzzled why a family of 5 would be hidden away in a dark corner. Next time I'm in town, I will skip the fine dining room and opt for the ocean grill.
I love this place. Second time I've been here, and it was great. Food was fresh and delicious, service was awesome and the view was beautiful. Definitely Not a tourist trap, even though it's located in whalers village. The drinks were perfect (mai tai was delicious), The poke was fresh and my main course was divine. My favorite restaurant in Kaanapali for sure.
Friday night dinner and they quickly found a spot for us with better lighting, which was wonderful for me as I have extreme night blindness. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Had the ribeye special and wife had the pork chop. Everything was properly prepared and tasty. We'll definitely be putting Leilani's on our list of West Side regulars!
My daughters and I enjoyed a great dinner at Leilani's after a long day of sight seeing. We had the filet mignon, flat iron steak and shrimp, and seafood pasta..everything was wonderful. The ambiance, view, and excellent service were great as well! We highly recommend Leilani's!
Ono was way overdone. Seared Ahi was excellent. Ono was replaced by another Ahi dinner but unfortunately had to wait a very long time for it to come. We had 2 Mai Tais and 2 glasses of wine. While they did give us a hula pie for our anniversary I felt that a comped glass of wine would have been a nice touch for the inconvenience and assurance of valued customers.
Service was slooow took 35 mins for our entrees, we didn't complain but the manager gave us a dessert for free. We didn't get to pick they gave us a Hula Pie, (which we had just eaten one the night before at Dukes). Meals were good. Views were amazing I would go back
We went there for a meal after our vow renewal with a group of friends for dinner. The menu was great and we all very much enjoyed our food. We sat upstairs so had the sea view so watched the sunset which was lovely. Our particular waiter, Brian was brilliant and also really fab with the young kids at our table, making jokes with them and chatting. Another waitress we encountered was not so friendly but it didn't spoil our experience. I highly recommend eating here and recommend booking in advance so you can get an upstairs table with a view.
We dined at Leilani's on the Beach with family while staying in Maui! This was our first time dining here and I would definitely go back, the food was delicious, specifically all of the fish, you just can't go wrong with the fresh catch in Hawaii. Also the Hula pie was amazing! Great views during sunset as well!
We spent the last night of our Maui vacation here. We had such a great dinner at Dukes the other night and always had great experiences at all the TS restaurants we've visited. We were a little let down with this one. The food was still quite good but our server, Amber did not make us feel nearly as welcome as we've felt at other restaurants. We had an early dinner with the kids and the restaurant offers a pretty nice 3 course tasting menu at a great price for 5-530 seatings. We received a warm welcome upon arrival but as soon as we inquired about the tasting menu we got a pretty chilly response. She was clearly not thrilled. We decided to take advantage of it anyway. The food was good but we didn't walk away feeling our business was very appreciated. Why offer an early bird special if you don't want people to order it?
First night in Maui. Anniversary dinner. Arrived early and had a drink at the bar below and enjoyed the hip vibe and nice servers. We were seated on time at requested table with sunset beach view. Server, Steve, knew the menu and was attentive but did not rush us. We chose local fish entrees. The food was spectacular and the presentation was superb. Price was as expected for a resort area. Can't wait to come back!
We visited Leilani's twice, the first time we received excellent service. We were greeted upon arrival, we were given choices of two different menus and treated with the utmost comfort and respect. We were seated right next to the ocean with an excellent view and our waiter Sam was an absolute doll with excellent insight on the menu and recommendations on drinks. He was an absolute pleasure to be around. The information he gave us about the Island helped make our adventure the best yet.
We actually came back and booked a table through opentable because we had such a great experience. Unfortunately our second trip wasn't as great. Upon arrival I stood at the receptions desk with a nice smile on my face politely waiting to be addressed and to announce our arrival. Both the receptionist looked at me and went on to help other guest who didn't have a reservation or were more than 30 minutes early. She didn't acknowledge me for quite some time and when she finally was free she still didn't acknowledge me until I just interrupted that we had a reservation. The curtly asked what time and I told her 8pm and she realized that our table was waiting for us and then seated us.
The view was ok, we were seated with a partial view of the ocean but there was a kiosk right outside the restaurant and the attendant kept smoking. Our table was on top of the table next to us and it seemed like the gentleman at the next table was actually seated between my husband and I. We couldn't hear each other so we moved the table away a bit. The waitress was fine. She took our order and the food was brought out by others, she did come to check on us.
The second visit wasn't as great as the first visit but the food was amazing both times. Melt in your mouth dishes, sweet and potent drinks, great beer and wine topped off with amazing desserts.
The only thing they don't serve is espresso with dessert, but coffee worked in a pinch. :D
