Makana Terrace - St. Regis - Hawaii Ratings and Reviews

My boyfriend and I dined there twice, and both times I had the sashimi assorted entree. It came with some tempura as well as sushi rolls in addition to the sashimi. The sashimi tasted very fishy and as if it had been defrosted recently. For a $66 entree, I would hope that the sashimi and sushi were freshly caught given our location. The appetizer, desserts and drinks were great though. And, you cannot beat the view!! I'd return, but I may select a different entree.

I made the reservation based on a recommendation to go and enjoy dinner while watching the sunset over Hanalei Bay. It was breathtaking. Go early. The food was delicious. I had the grouper and my husband had the NY strip. We had the chocolate brûlée for dessert. The prices are high and I justify that with the ambience, location (really incredible views) and service. I would go back for any special occasion and I would recommend it as well!
Also, the bar had an outstanding view too.

We had dinner at Makana Terrace twice during a recent visit to Kauai. The view cannot be beat! Sunset is especially breathtaking! The food is good. Not a huge variety on the menu. My salad and crab cakes were good. My husband didn't care for the onaga fish preparation. We were there for my 50th birthday, and they brought me a delicious chocolate mousse for dessert. The service was very good. The food is a bit disappointing for such exclusive location and association with the St Regis, but the view is worth going for.

The sunset and view from this restaurant is spectacular. The service was excellent, however the food for the price is average. The seafood medley had too much ginger and was sweet and the heart palm salad dressing tasted like mayonnaise. The mahi mahi and cream bar dessert were good.

Amazing as always. My husband and I love it here and we brought in our out of town friends to watch the sunset and have dinner. They loved it too. Its usually a little quieter than it was Saturday night but we were next to a rowdy table of 8 people. At times we had difficulty talking to each other because of them. But that wasn't your fault.

My husband and I recently went to dinner at Makana Terrace. Our food and service were outstanding. The fish was fresh and was uniquely prepared. One of our favorite items was an excellent piece of ahi tuna served atop a perfect piece of watermelon with avocado on top. Perfect spot for a sunset dinner!

The view is amazing! Cannot beat a view of the ocean and the Napali coast. We watched the sun set which was beautiful but very hot and bright sitting outside. Menu was nice, the sushi was so good. Expect outrageous prices - it is the St. Regis and you are having a meal with an incredible view.

The MaKkana terrace has a lovely view of the Napali coast. Hard to beat! Service is good. Masses of people come there and there is no parking so be prepared for valet.
The food we had was ordinary, sushi dried out, mediocre, expensive.

This place has it all!! Perfect view of Bali hai, sunset, rainbows - absolutely gorgeous!! The food was nothing short of excellent!! Even the dessert was fantastic! This is a must do if you are visiting Kauai. This place truly captures everything Kauai has to offer all in one location!

We attended their diner show / luau. Greeted with fresh leis, excellent wait staff, wonderful and quite varied buffet, free Mai tais or fruit punch. The show was good. The view of mount Makana and Hanalei bay are spectacular.

The restaurant is expensive but the view is like none other in all of Kauai currently (this will change when Bali Hai reopens). The food is excellent if you can stomach the bill. We ate there twice but had we been traveling with our kids or extended family that would not have been an option. I definitely advise making your reservation through open table as we made one over the phone months in advance for another night and when we arrived (in our wedding attire) they had no knowledge of the reservation.

made a reservation here to celebrate our anniversary. it was wonderful! food, service and view were amazing. only wished we had asked for a table with a bit more of a view. will definitely be going back on our future trips to kauai.

We were very disappointed with the food. For the cost of the meal,we should have been wowed.
We both ordered the chicken.
It was so tough..I am almost sure they butchered one of the wild ones that are all around the island. I have never in my life had a tough chicken before this. As chicken is the easiest meat to prepair. In this meal the skin was not golden ..it was white and slimy...(liked it was boiled) the meat inside as stated was very tough and chewy
The cost of this meal was outrageous. I felt bad for my husband who brought me there for my 60th Birthday.
The service was fine. The setting was amazing.
The food and service are both very good ...
The food and service are both very good and the view is spectacular. We went before sunset and stayed through until dark. We watched showers over Bail Hai wrapping around before clearing then saw vibrant double rainbows 3 different times. I do not recommend the pool bar at all, but Makana Terrace is well worth the pricing.
Beautiful setting with views of Hanalei ...
Beautiful setting with views of Hanalei Bay beyond the infinity pool. We enjoyed a wonderful family gathering with good food, and excellent service from Vaughn, our server. This is a pricey place, but we knew that going in and felt it was worth it. The combination of unique scenery, good food and great service is a winner.

Like everywhere else in Hawaii the food and beverages are expensive, but the exceptional service and quality is above any other establishment we've tried so far; can't go wrong with the quality at Princeville's St. Regis Hotel!

We were visiting the hotel on vacation and wanted somewhere special to celebrate our recent engagement. The first thing that was off putting was the hostess who answered the phone after I made the reservation. We had a nice bottle of wine and wanted to know about the corkage fee. The woman tried to get me off the phone multiple times, but had a few questions I wanted answered. She seemed frustrated with my call.
That aside we were excited to come dine with a beautiful ocean view and loved the menu we saw on open table. We were greeted by Jeff who was very nice and liked his demeanor at the table. He brought us sparkling water and made us feel like a priority as our server was nowhere to be found. Jenny finally came to the table and saw we had a bottle of wine, said hello and just left to get wine glasses. We wanted a drink before the bottle, but had to tell her 5 minutes later when she returned with glasses. We had to tell her we wanted the bottle opened to breath, but couldn't get her attention until our drinks arrived. The drinks were beautiful and had a gorgeous flower at the top...nice touch.
A table behind us had sat about 10 minutes into our dining experience. They were greeted by Jeff, but then we're not taken care of for over 10 minutes...meaning we waited even longer to put in our food order AND still our wine was not opened and almost done with our first drink. She took the table behind us order before ours and pushed the most expensive entrees on us to order. I was going to get the seafood medley anyway, but it is nice to get an array of options from the server...not just the two most expensive options...
We ordered the makana roll as an appetizer which was very good, but we had to ask for chopsticks, side plates and soy sauce. Why was it not on the table prior to putting down our $25 sushi roll???
The same for our entrees.
Just frustrating and bad experience...
Great Princeville Restaurant
We enjoyed our meal at Makana Terrace. The staff were extremely polite and always addressed us by our last names. Or server was great, but not too folksy. Many people were there for special occasions, although we were there on a recommendation from a friend. The beet and goat cheese salad was delicious and the entrees weren't overbearing. The view was spectacular and we would go again the next time we are on Kauai.
Middling Fare for a Beautiful Location
Two notes to start: The St. Regis at Princeville stands on my favorite place on Kauai. Second, I was after vegetarian cuisine. That said, the view from the open air deck at Makana is superb: overlooking Hanalei Bay for incredible sunsets and beautiful vistas. A meal at the Terrace is almost worth its cost just for the experience. Service is what you pay for: mid-level relaxed fine dining from more-or-less expereinced service staff. I was underwhelmed by the vegetarian options: just one entree and one soup available. The entree, a vegetable pot pie, was simple but well prepared. My experience (to be fair, my first there) was a good representation of the hotel writ large: where wealthy tourists in flippers regularly trod on to of once pristine coral reefs after being served expensive drinks by the pool. For the price, both hotel and restaurant should be held to a higher standard. Overall: a fine experience, but not great for the price.
