Fish was so overcooked that it was dry and chewy. The accompaniment was coconut citrus rice and candied pineapple. However, there's no hint of coconut or citrus in the rice. The pineapple was not candied, more like from a can of Dole. Iced tea and water glasses were empty but were not filled.

My husband and I dined here on our last night in Maui. We ate in the dining room as they also have a beachside grill below the dining room. The location is perfect. We saw an amazing sunset. The food was delicious. The service was ok. Our waiter spoke so fast when describing the specials.They were very busy. And I can say we did not feel rushed. For a romantic dinner, it's a wonderful place to go.

Food was excellent and very broad menu. Many Hawaiian specialties. We arrived early for a spectacular sunset. Had a 3-course fixed price tasting menu available up to 5:45 pm for only $26 which is reasonable for Maui pricing. Both the fish and beef were very well prepared. We did order the famed Hula Pie which could be shared by 4 people. Would return on the next trip.

We were a 7 person group and the efficiency and politeness (is that a word?) of everyone was outstanding. Our waiter was David that evening and I enjoyed his regional sense of humor. Seating anywhere on the upstairs patio will be appreciated by those who like to eat on an exposed patio looking out on a Hawaiian beach.

We had a lovely table overlooking the beach. The ahi poke was delicious as was the fresh salad. The soup of the day and crab cakes were also very good. Our waiter was attentive and provided good explanations of the various appetizers and entrees.

We were on vacation from San Diego and took our friends who were traveling with us as they had never been to this restaurant. We go every year when we are in Maui. We were seated immediately and had good service all evening. Our friends loved the place, but his fish was dry and overcooked. Our dinners were good. I told him later he should have complained and the waiter would have made it right but he said he didn't want to make a fuss. I know our waiter would have taken care of him as he provided great service to us all evening. I think the food here is great and there is good value as well.

Although we'd seen Leilani's on the Beach on previous trips, we just hadn't yet made it there until this time. It was really great. Although we hadn't made a special seating request, we had in my opinion maybe the premier table along the ledge overlooking the beach. The food was great and my wife said that it was her favorite of all of the restaurants we've tried on various trips to Maui. The Hula Pie was really tasty and is a must!

Great old school Hawaii, but no longer offering the free hula pie to repeat customers and Marriott owners kind of takes away from some of the charm, that made this place warm and inviting, which is what the restaurant was about.

My wife and I were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary. Absolutely wonderful environment on the upper level. Service was impeccable, and our server, Aaron was outstanding and very attentive. We will definitely go back

We came here on our honeymoon when we were staying at the Sheraton only minutes away. It was such a beautiful evening, we asked to sit outside on the patio. It was gorgeous! The sun was setting and we had cocktails in hand- just perfect! The service was excellent and the menu had quality choices in all areas. I chose the parmesan crusted catch of the day and my husband had the filet mignon. My meal was delicious, but I wish we would have ordered two filets! It was INCREDIBLE. The perfect medium-rare... We could cut it with our forks! The hula pie was also incredible. Save room, if possible! I'm very happy we chose this location to celebrate, and I know we will return if we ever visit Maui again.

We had a great dinner here once again. Excellent steak and seafood and cocktails. The only drawback was we didn't have a very good table but were placed the two of us in a large table in the middle of the room when others dining for 2 had smaller tables with more privacy. We love this place and plan to go back again. The server was excellent!

We booked our dinner to celebrate a birthday. With reservations for the restaurant upstairs we didn't expect to be sat outside on the back patio. We could have eaten at the lower restaurant and saved a large amount of money. The service was good, the food wasn't anything special however. They did give us a free slice of Hula pie to celebrate with. We wouldn't suggest our friends go there when in Hawaii.

Loved this place, We went to Maui for our 25th anniversary. Menu was perfect not too much and not too little. Would recommend to anyone. Loved this place. Hopefully one day I'll go back to Maui and dine here again.
