We went out to dinner for Father's Day, and we were let down by our experience here. We had reservations for weeks leading up to our vacation. We showed up on time, and placed our order pretty quickly after we were seated. We ordered our kids rice, as they do not like sushi. We waited an hour and a half... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on our second night on Kauai. We ordered a couple of sushi rolls and the lobster dynamite. We sat on the terrace and listened to the live music. We didn't have reservations and were able to get a table right away at 8:30pm on a week night. The food was great and... More

Really great sushi (especially the salmon nigiri's which are cut and served very much like they are in Japan - thick, long cuts with wasabi on top of rice). The shrimp tempura was also delicious.

Having cocktails at Stevenson's Library when I realized I was listening to gorgeous music! Had to go find out who they were! Amazing duo called Falling Down Romance. So worth going to hear such gifted musicians! You will love their music! Also at Trees Lounge 2nd & 4th Tuesday I learned. Had to buy their CD.

Great food, great service, the chef is very friendly. Probably the best food on the Island. Fantastic view of the sea.

We visited the Art Night in Hanapepe and discovered the group Falling Down Romance. Their eclectic mix of music seemed just perfect for Kaua'i so we sought them out at the Hyatt the following Tuesday just for drinks. Stevenson's has nice comfy chairs that make a night out a pleasure. Our only regret is that we discovered the venue and... More

We visited this restaurant while staying at the Grand Hyatt on our honeymoon. The service at the bar was very good as was the food. What really got us was the live music! FALLING DOWN ROMANCE was the name of the group. FANTASTIC music with a unique sound. It fit the night perfectly. BEAUTIFUL WOOD and ambience as well.

The sushi was fresh and good. More limited selection in the bar area. Had a different venue / live band each of the nights we stopped in

My husband and I ate here on our first night at the Grand Hyatt. The sushi was good! Great service. Very nice view of the ocean! The menu is slightly limited and they're wasn't one 'wow' dish - but everything was great. If there was a 4.5 star option, I would give it!
