Excellent service, vast menu, beautiful view. We went for my sisters birthday- the view was much more than we expected, it creates a beautiful ambiance. We wanted to eat course by course and pair wines, the Manager/Sommelier William was of great help suggesting wines. He also went out of his way to take us all the way across to the... More

We chose Makana Terrace to celebrate or 25th anniversary after reading reviews on trip advisor. The resort was supposed to have amazing views of Hanalei bay at sunset but you have to look across the roof top of the resort rooms to see the bay. It was just a good dinner not what I expected for the price we paid.... More

We had breakfast here every day on our trip. Every day we had different eggs Benedict and accompaniments. Fresh fruit and avocados we're delish every morning. Coffee was hot with almond milk as requested. Staff were super friendly at all times!

$40 breakfast buffet not worth it, nothing I haven't seen at $17 buffets. $28 seafood omelet - no thanks. Everything was very high priced. The service could have been better at filling ice tea. View is killer, but once was enough.

Fine dining at the Makana, solid service and food - but it's all about the amazing view, especially at sunset. Very expensive, and great for a special occasion. Agree with other reviews that it's primary asset is the gorgeous view of Hanalei Bay.

Good buffet but at $39 for breakfast, you would expect some creativity and change. As the only spot for breakfast at hotel, after 2 days you are bored. The basics, omelets, etc. are good, as is salmon, but everything else is very basic for a full buffet. Baked goods limited and never change. Nice view but not the creativity you... More

The view was stunning and the breakfast buffet was delicious. Also the dinners were excellent. We feasted on the Thanksgiving dinner and will always remember Thanksgiving 2016!

You can read many reviews that describe THE VIEW from this most beautiful place. And, THE VIEW is THE REASON to eat here. But, we must add that the service, at least the two days we ate breakfast here, was also very satisfying! Richard, our server the first day, is very pleasant, especially when you take the time to chat... More

We had a very romantic dinner there during our latest vacation. I would recommend making an early reservation on the lanai for sunset. The views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains are spectacular. The food was prepared beautifully and the service was excellent. It was completely worth the splurge.
