Five of my family went dinner there just last week. Four of us got fish, over cooked, dry no flavor. One had ribs, burned, dry, terrible. Went because of Diner And Dive Show. Not worth the money. Do not eat there, you will be sorry.
My husband and I went here for lunch during our second day of vacation, and we never went back. We ordered the chardonay garlic calamari, fried porkchops, and the fresh fish and chips.The porkchops plate did not look appetizing at all, and it was too...salty. The customer service also took very long. When we where there, the restaurant was 1/2 full and there was at least 2-3 waiters for the 8 tables. Sadly, the only time our waiter was fast or attentive was when it came to giving us our check which said a lot to us. The other food wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best either.More
the food was absolutely amazing! our server was super chill and very friendly. we got the stuffed chicken, pork chops, and the buffalo blue sandwich and everything was amazing. we will definitely be back
Stumbled upon Fosters and glad we did. If you want great service and ribs that will fall off the bone, fosters is the place. All the portions were big and very well put together. Great atmosphere and delicious food.
View was amazing, location is on the ocean. food was average for the four of us dining. ordered a crab cake appetizer that showed up to the table cold and came at the same time as our dinner. Im guessing it was forgot in the...kitchen. They did apologize and took it off our bill. The dinner was average, Not great but not bad.More
Had high expectations based on the fact that the restaurant is supposed to have food made locally, super fresh, and all made from scratch. The cheddar burger tasted so fishy I questioned if they had messed up the order and brought out a fish burger....Bread was stale, and tomatoes inside looked very old. Side order of fries were almost burned and completely drenched in oil. Far from "fresh".
My veggie flatbread was tiny, super greasy, half burned and tasted like a frozen pizza. My side salad was also bad, with all of the vegetables tasting and looking old.
We tried going back to give them another chance and had the same exact experience with completely different entrees. Nice location but food isn't fresh and doesn't taste good or especially live up to their claims of fresh, local, made from scratch. Prices too high for poor quality food. Dissapointing experiences both times.More
Foster's kitchen was incredible! Absolutely the best restaurant we've eaten at while on vacation in Kona. The staff was great, the food was even better. We had a great time sitting on the outside deck and watching the young people play volleyball while we ate...our dinner.
Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation, because they're not too good at walk-ins but if you make a reservation and arrive a little early they will seat you.
Check out the small plate menu, they are quite tasty and enough to fill you up, the ribs are really good and the small plate steak was awesome.More

Excellent flavors are something you can count on no matter what dish you choose to enjoy! Can't wait to have you back for some calamari and a burger or to try something new soon.
