Makana Terrace - St. Regis - Hawaii Ratings and Reviews
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.
We ended up leaving before getting food because we had seen similar menus from other restaurants and were burned out. We are 100% sure this restaurant was amazing and we will come back next time and go there first. We just wanted a little more variety and not so formal of an atmosphere. Not their problem, ours!
Overall pretty average. For the prices paid, it just wasn't up to par. Our wine wasn't available, so had to substitute off the bat. It happens, but it's annoying. And a restaurant of that caliber should know its inventory better. We ordered the tuna app - very nice. $23. A sushi platter - $60. Very ordinary. One roll and one sushi tartare. It was supposed to come with a salad or a soup or something else (we forget) but that never came. At $60, that puts NOBU in NYC to shame at those prices. Makes the roll about $35-40. And it was just ok. Ridiculous. Then we split the onaga local red snapper. Had to send it back and take it off our bill. $49 and the beans were cold and limp and the fish like a tough piece of chicken. It had clearly been left sitting (the waiter said the chef started cooking it at the wrong time) and it went bad. Real bad. The wait staff were lovely. But they made no attempt to make it up to us. A local neighborhood restaurant probably would have given us a glass of wine or port or even a free dessert to split. But not here. The view is amazing. But you can get that with a $16 cocktail and go eat somewhere better. Save your money for the helicopter ride.
During our travel to Hawaii we frequently cooked our own meals. We wanted to take advantage of the St. Regis, its outdoor dining, the sunset and an evening out. Server was very engaged, although I think likely caring for too many tables. We had a leisurely water view dining evening after cocktails on the outdoor bar area. Food was very good. A perfect way to end our stay on the island.
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.
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!
