I often see the "5" rating awarded to some burger joint or ice cream shop, and while I guess that's okay (for really great burgers or ice cream) I often think about what it takes for a restaurant to earn a real "Five" rating. I know that I've given a few "5s" that, truth be told, were probably just really... More

Modern atmosphere with good seafood. I would recommend the tempura lobster. Cocktails are good as well.

Had an incredible meal with friends of fish and different dishes, all delicious and different. Anything on the menu was good and we all shared. Not to be missed when you're on Maui. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

We enjoyed an awesome dinner here last night. 3 in our party enjoyed the fish special and I enjoyed the chicken and brown rice dish. But maybe the best part of the dinner was Robert the waiter and his partner. No name sorry. Enjoy

I took my wife (sole mate) to the twilight dinner for valentines. Ample time was allowed between each course even allowing us to take a stroll before dessert. It was a 6 course meal. There wasn't a bad serving only complaint was there was a lot of very good food but the pace allowed one to enjoy each course--so it... More

We stayed at the Fairmont but would likely have dined here even if we had not due to the reviews here on TA. We actually ate dinner here twice. The first time we sat at the bar and wanted a light dinner. We had missed Happy Hour (looked like a pretty good deal but pretty early) but they had a... More

Service and food excellent. Ate here twice. The tempura shrimp appetizer......wow! Get the fish and then choose one of the preparations. We had both a coconut lemongrass broth with the sea bass and a ginger steamed monchong which were fantastic.

We made a reservation for 10 of us and were pressured into an early reservation at 5 p.m. because the hostess kept repeating that another group needed our table at 8 p.m. Well, we had ordered so much food and wine that we were definitely not done by 8 p.m., but the restaurant was almost empty so they must have...

One of several restaurants in Wailea/ Kihei area that far exceeded my expectations. I've been somewhat averse to dining in hotel restaurants ( this one is in the Kei Alani) however I am starting to change my mind. Spacious, inviting outdoor restaurant near the adult pool. Very friendly and professional service ( thank you Drew). Food quality and prep exceeded... More

Ko is a good place for a elegant dinner using fresh local ingredients in Maui. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Fairmont hotel in Wailea and its large dining room extends out onto the patio in the lush landscaping. They specialize in 'plantation inspired' twists on modern American cuisine. You can find a wonderful salad incorporating... More
