We love the Canoe House... location is perfect, service is friendly, food is fresh, creative and delicious! I had the fresh beet salad and Ahi for dinner and it was perfection. My husband had the tomato "poke" and Ono for dinner which was very tasty. And of course, add the ocean view and live music, we were very happy!

My husband set up a reservation for us at the Canoe House, to spend a special night for our 40th Anniversary Celebration. We arrived and they had a special table all ready for us. We started out with wine, as we watched the sun go down. It even got more magical as darkness came down on us and all the lights on the tables gave a warm glow. Our dinners were wonderful and they even brought us a special desert of our choice at the end of it all. Our server, Aulike (I know this is not the correct spelling!) was wonderful! The entire night was one to remember. Thank you Canoe House for such a special night!

The setting is very romantic out in the open

All the food we had was very good
My only criticism is the price
Dinner for four with two drinking wine
350$
I suppose you pay for the experience which is very nice
Definitely worth a try
The hotels other restaurant shimono at the golf clubhouse is a sushi restaurant and was our favorite
Half the price and wonderful food for lunch or dinner

If you are looking for a romantic setting with a fantastic location and view then this is a great choice. This restaurant located at the Mauna Lani hotel is almost right on the beach and you enter from the beach walkway. This is an open air restaurant where most tables are located outside. Make your reservation about one hour prior to sunset.
The menu is smaller then I thought but has choices of beef, seafood, chicken and pasta. Everything we ordered from the pupu platter, Kona lobster entrée and pasta and shrimp, fresh fish were excellent and beautifully presented as were the desserts. The tropical drinks were delicious as well. Because it is located in a resort hotel the prices here are substantially higher then what you would pay in the mainland at a comparable restaurant. It was a magical night with an amazing Hawaiian sunset. The hotel grounds are beautiful with pools of young hammerhead sharks and fish and also sea turtles in the lobby that the hotel raises and releases each year.

Beautiful outdoor setting and friendly service. Unfortunately, we were not overly impressed with the food. We ordered the Pupu Platter for starters, which was very good - and both the Ono and Ahi as mains. Although both fish plates were beautifully presented, they were very bland.
