Makana Terrace - St. Regis - Hawaii Ratings and Reviews
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.
The hotel is beautiful. The menu is very limited. The prices for the amount of food were quite high and did not include a salad. I ordered a medium rare beef tenderloin dinner and it arrived medium well. I had to send it back. We ordered the ahi tuna and it arrived frozen. We had to send it back. Between both issues and the small portions I expected much better from a St Regis restaurant. We did get our bill adjusted which was much appreciated however it did put a bit of a damper on our anniversary dinner.
We had requested a specific table, Table 22. We had been there 3 yrs. before and thought it one of the most spectacular settings in HI. Arriving early for this visit even after more than an hour's drive, we were told Table 22 was not available, but 19 was nearby. We stupidly agreed to take Table 19. As we looked over at 22, it was obvious our table had been given away a very short time before we arrived as they had not even received their beverages.My husband looked at a large column and the service areas. We should have left. Our server was pleasant, but minimally informative. The food was a terrible disappoinment. My herbed Mahi Mahi had about 5 herbs on it and was a bland color topped with thin apple slices. The "crisp" Molokai potatoes- were so tough I had trouble cutting them. My husband's potatoes were cold, so he did not eat them. His steak was passable, but the asparagus spears upon which it rested were also tough. This was a meal unworthy of our time and expense.
Location was great but menu was a bit of "bait and switch". If you are just looking for the sushi and apps head to the St Regis bar upstairs. Same views and less fuss. Service was lovely just not the same menu as listed on OpenTable (or even close). Menu was more limited and pricey
We had a beautiful view from our table on the terrace overlooking the water and the sunset. Our service was excellent and the food was delicious. It was a little pricey but nothing that I didn't expect. I certainly recommend dining at Makana Terrace. It's also a great way to visit the St. Regis.
My, now wife, and I dined here after getting married at a nearby beach. Service was impeccable, the view is exquisite, overall our experience was wonderful. After reading multiple reviews before dining here, my wife and I set expectations that were average to low for the food. We split the Mahi Mahi, asparagus. It was tasty along with the bread, mango honey butter and the cookies at the end. We recommend this place near sunset, and splitting the meal is a solid idea.
We had Christmas dinner here and it was amazing. The view is beautiful and the food and service were extraordinary! We highly recommend the Butterfish and Land and Sea dishes. All of the tropical drinks were outstanding as well. We will definitely return here on a future visit to Kauai.
We visit Kauai every other Christmas. We love to visit the St. Regis for the beauty and the dining. The night we dined at the St. Regis it was our anniversary. We had a wonderful dinner with a beautiful setting and our server was fantastic, she was so much fun to talk to and provided great service! We will certainly be back!
The view of Hanalei Bay, as in Puff the Magic Dragon, makes this restaurant unique. I drove all the way from the south side of the island to have dinner there and watch the sunset. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent, but the ambience as daylight was fading, was simply spectacular.
