We are on our third and last night in Lanai, and we have eaten every dinner at the Lanai City Grill. Why go anywhere else when you can feast on Chef Jimmy Lesquete's unbelievable cuisine? I don't really like green beans, and I even ordered a plateful of those and they were incredible! We've dined on multiple different preparations of... More

We have eaten at a few place in Lanai City and found lanai City Grille our favorite for quality, taste, atmosphere, service. On top of all that they serve large portions at a fair price! What more can you ask for? Tip: Make reservations on busy nights as they can fill up.

This restaurant was excellent from Theresa the top notch server to food that was served. Our entire party totally enjoyed this evening. My only hope is that they would open up the back of the restaurant, I think it would be a real plus to the establishment.

Just had a great dinner at Lanai City Grille! This was the best place we've eaten on Lanai. If you like venison, then you'll love this venison! The filet mignon was perfectly cooked and delicious. The Lobster bisque was outstanding and classically prepared and the bananas foster for dessert was something we were glad we didn't miss. The staff were... More

Inside the charming Lanai City Hotel sits this quaint restaurant. From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and knew the evening would be perfect. We were probably the only ones there that were not locals, and yet we were treated like family. We had a quiet corner booth and the service was excellent. Hard to pick from the... More

This unassuming restaurant might just be the best restaurant on Lana'i and one of the best on the islands. The classically-trained chef recently took the job at this restaurant and is certainly putting his mark on it. After speaking with him (great guy and very engaging) is sounds as if the menu will continue to change to offer guests a... More

This review is for the new menu/restaurant which we ate at in late December. We were the first table to arrive (at 5:00 when they opened) and our meal took 2.5 hours! We didn't order multiple courses, it was just really slow (taking island time to a whole new level). For example, entrees came out 10 minutes apart between first... More

Lanai City Grille had its grand reopening just two weeks ago, and we were both impressed by the result. The Lanai signature was the best piece of meat we've had in US and we would recommend it to anyone except vegetarians :) The double chocolate cookie desert is just yammie....

Our trip was delayed , but it turned out to be an excellent trip. We lost $199 from 808 Hummer being thieves, but that is another review. The Hotel is a great example of the feel of Lanai, being a quaint experience . Clean and met our needs. The diner had an excellent low-key feel, and excellent choices. It was... More
