Makana Terrace - St. Regis - Hawaii Ratings and Reviews
We ended up leaving before getting food ...
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.

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.
