Makana Terrace - St. Regis - Hawaii Ratings and Reviews
Came here for my Birthday Dinner and our 1 special dinner while on our Hawaiian Vacation. They took us in right away once we mentioned the reservation and even took note that I had requested a ocean view since it was for my birthday. The entire staff was beyond warm and welcoming. The chef greeted us personally and everyone was very attentive. While I turned down the offer for complimentary Champagne for my birthday- they were so kind to bring out a beautiful dessert of chocolate truffles that had Happy Birthday is hawaiian decorated on. So happy we made the choice to go here for my birthday. the Mojito was delicious and I typically do not like mojitos along with the lychee cocktail drink. Everything was delicious and the view (while rainy and foggy) was spectacular of the ocean and mountainside.
We came for a sunset dinner which despite a rainy and overcast day was phenomenal as the weather cleared at sunset for some amazing views. This is absolutely a must while in Kauai. If I ever come back I can't wait to do this again. The food and service were great as well.
Our evening at St. Regis for Dinner was extra special - the waterfront location, the ambiance, the excellent food and drinks and, especially, the service. Kevin, who is so personable and professional, led a focused and very, very customer-oriented team that made our special dinner on vacation memorable.
The view was out of this world and the service was very pleasant. The food on the other hand was poor at best. Cold and tasteless was the chefs theme. We never complained before but we expected something good. We had the scallops for the appetizer and the Mahi Mahi for the entrée. Both were served cold and tasteless. The Mahi Mahi was also overcooked. I have reservations for a couple of upcoming nights but I will be canceling them. I will also be canceling my reservations with the St. Regis Bar as they use the same chef. Too bad as the views were awesome! Go for the views and a drink.
Food was a little ordinary. Had the seafood speciality dish. Accompanying bread was very dry and inedible. The amount of food for the price was quite surprising. A single prawn, a small lobster tail and a few mussels. Service was a ordinary too. No side plates to place the bread they brought pre-appetisers. No plate to put the shells in, I had to out these on the rim of the mains plate. They also out us in a dark dingy corner which had the sole benefit of being close to taking some awesome pictures of the sunset.
We were seated across from service stand...busy. Our entrée took almost 1 hour to arrive, after our appetizers. Our coffee arrived after we finished dessert. Our bill was very incorrect. The food was fine but not for the price; and the price definitely didn't reflect the service. Too much for too little.
Delicious food and the most beautiful site on the island for dinner. Love the new chef everything was delicious. We had the mahi macadamia encrusted with a great sauce. Others had the steak. Salads lovely. Great cocktails. Wonderful server thank you vaughn! Very knowledgeable and helpful. Delightful evening thank you! We are regulars but thrilled with new chef! Menu has needed updating.
Lovely outdoor setting, quiet for conversation.
Server Kevin and his helper Pablo were delightful. Friendly and engaging, really made us feel at home. Professional and warm; much aloha.
We enjoyed the Prix-Fixe menu:
Course #1. Crispy Calamari with black tomato sauce. Light, squid cooked perfectly.
Also tried Insalata Caprese. Have had many times including last fall in Capri and all over the Amalfi Coast of Italy and the region of Campania, where it originated. Always made with tomato, mozzarella, and basil, olive oil (sometimes balsamic). Never had it with citrus instead of tomato. Excellent with fresh sliced orange. It works!
Course #2. Pan-roasted local onaga snapper, with carrot-ginger puree, and bok choy. Excellent meaty moist (with crispy skin) fish. My partner does not like fishy fish; raved about it.
Course #3. Kauai coffee chocolate tart. Can't tell you all the parts in its construction, but excellent original dessert. A very special evening.
Avoid this restaurant if you're an adult. We were at a table that could have been in the middle of a pre-K school yard. Kids were screaming, crying, and running around with no one controlling them -- not parents, not management, no one. Not a place for an adult couple to enjoy a dinner. The same experience was true later in the evening at the St. Regis Bar. Certainly not the New York St. Regis. JUST STAY AWAY. We recommend Bar Acuda only 5 miles away.
The restaurant had a spectacular view. The seats on the terrace close to the balcony are much nicer of a view. We had to ask to have our seats changed because they sat us pretty far from the window. The service was nice and the people were nice and friendly. The food was good but not great. The view made up for the 7 out of 10 rating I would give the food.
Cannot beat the view over Hana Lei Bay. This has to be one of the best view restaurants anywhere.
The food lives up to the view. We enjoyed the ahi, pork chop, and steak dishes. We found the food perfectly seasoned well prepared and for the overall experience, reasonably priced.
The ambience was enhanced by live music and the service was very very good
Once again we were more than satisfied with the quality of the food, the service and the marvellous view of Makana mountain. It is a pleasure to eat in such a relaxed environment the dining experience reflects well on the world renowned St Regis brand. We never miss an opportunity to dine here when in Kauai and that tradition will not end on future visits. Keep up the good work.
This dinner was for the Joseph Phelps wine tasting. Unfortunately the restaurant also offered at the same time their regular "à la carte" cafeteria style menu instead to reserve one complete section for the people that came for the wine tasting. This was a huge error. The Joseph Phelps wines were outstanding especially their "Insigna" but you can really forget their desert wine "Eisbere" which was a complete catastrophe ! The food was good but nothing exceptional to the contrary of the fantastic view on Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai.
We had the Angus steak with some coconut rice and it was spectacular. Cooked to perfection the meat just melted in your mouth. We were lucky enough to be seated just as the sun was setting over Makana mountain (Bali Hai) and that too was well worth the trip. Always delighted by the cuisine we were not disappointed and will be sure to return before we leave this beautiful island and of course when we return for our yearly sojourn. Thanks again Makana Terrace
While the Makana Terrace is usually a romantic and lovely evening, it happened to be extremely busy the night we were there. We got a nice table but the noise level was a little above what I would consider acceptable, especially for an outside table.
Food is excellent but pricey. Definitely a special occasion restaurant.
We arrived early (6pm) so we could get a good seat. When we checked in at the front they asked what our room number was, and we told them we were not hotel guests, just dinner guests. They took us to a table away from the beautiful sunset view even though there were tables open with much better views. Would not recommend this hotel restaurant, the food was ok.
Anniversary/birthday dinner - asked for a balcony table two months in advance and didn't get it. Was seated next to a table full of loud, energetic children with parents that didn't care that everybody's meal was being interrupted by screaming and crying. Our waitress disappeared for 30 minutes after taking our drink order. We had to find the manager to order food and get water. Scenery was fantastic. The staff, including the manager, doesn't seem to care about the customers.
It was a big disappointment to dine there, especially that I always had great experience with the St Regis chain in the past. Will never go back to that restaurant.
Late to take our orders, late to deliver the meal after orders taken, poor quality sushi, and at the end , we had to remind them of the take home left over boxes...
Bad bad experience. The only st Regis like was the huge bill I got stuck with for food I could have obtained at any sushi restaurant...
The setting is spectacular and romantic, looking across broad Hanalei Bay to the jagged mountains and the remarkable, tropical sunset.
The food was o.k. - A sashimi appetizer was wonderful, mahimahi was passable and the dessert barely acceptable. So, the value is not in the high-priced food, it's in the setting, the ambience and the view. Service was very good. The wine list is very limited but good.
Go there, get one of the excellent sushi combinations with a good wine. Love where you are and not what's on the menu and you will by happy you came.
I can honestly say that I was very disappointed at the food and service. We had hair in our food multiple times. Really gross. The waitress was not able to check on us as she should. Maybe they were short staffed. She was very nice though. Very apologetic. They comped our apps and our desert. For the price it should have been a better experience. Views are phenomenal of Hanalei Bay!!
My husband and I went here one night of our honeymoon and even with high expectations, they were exceeded. Phenomenal food, exquisite service delicious cocktails and the views are only the best of the best even on a cloudier night. We were spoiled with celebratory champagne and chocolates and the server did everything to make the night romantic and special.
