A beautiful place to enjoy a wonderful meal. They have vegan options and the food is always top notch. It's a must visit for us every visit. Even if you just go for a drink, the view will wow you!

Spectacular setting for a fabulous family dinner. We enjoyed the entire Prix Fix menu. Must haves: Poke, Ciopino, Lilikoi Pot de Creme and Hazelnut Chocolate Torte.

Fresh fish, great views, friendly service. Pricy, but so is the island. Highly recommend coming here, especially if staying within Kapalua!

I have celebrated many birthdays at Merriman's and always looked forward to it, as I did this time. But, it has changed. The food was ok, not as good as previous visits, but definitely not worth the 3 course prix fixe menu at $95 per...person that is now the only option they offer. $95 for 3 courses that were just ok is overinflated and silly. We knew the price going in, and believed we would get a great experience, but were really disappointed for what we received for that price. The service was excellent, as it always is. But the food selections and quality were just not $95 per person good. The other disappointment was the change to the grounds. After dinner, you used to be able to sit on the patio area next to the water, around a fire pit, with a view of what seemed every star in the galaxy. It was breathtaking. There is no more view at all. There are now tables under a tent on the patio, which ruins the view from your table in the restaurant, as well as takes away any spot to enjoy the stars after dinner. I'm glad we have many memorable birthdays there, under the stars, but we won't be back. There are so many fabulous places to dine in Lahaina and Kaanapali that don't require an overpriced, underwhelming prix fixe and that don't require a deposit to even make a reservation. It's just not worth it. Spend your $95 (if even that much) elsewhere to enjoy better food and a better view.More

Breathtaking views with phenomenal food, what else can you ask for? The service was excellent too. Great wine, cocktails and digestif selection.

We celebrated a birthday party at a very special restaurant. Merriman’s was delightful. The poke appetizer, cucumber gazpacho, mahi-mahi, and fillet were excellent. My wife said that the homemade donuts may have been the best desserts that she has ever had. Highly recommend!

It is expensive, but it is worth it. The location is sublime and the sunset views from the outdoor seating area are beautiful. The food is excellent; I cleaned my plate for each course. The portions are not too big, which allows you to really...savor the meal in its entirety. Definitely a special experience that is worth indulging in.More

Even with a prie fix limited menu you still cannot go wrong at a Peter Merriman restaurant. Excellent preparation and presentation with great staff/service and wonderful food. Definitely a must go place if you’re on Maui.

I have never eaten anywhere where literally ever bite I put in my mouth was just outstanding. The food was absolutely amazing. We had the Chow Fun Noodles with Shrimp and the Kalua Pork Quesadilla for the first course, both were great, although I think...we both preferred the noodles, then we had the Pan Seared Mahi Mahi & Peppercorn Ribeye. I’ve never had gnocchi, it was so flavorful. The views are stunning, our sever was very friendly and helpful. Top notch experience throughout, even the valet was super professional and made us feel welcomed. Overall excellent time and I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will eat here again.More

Figure out when sunset is and have drinks for an hour on the patio, watch the sunset then grab dinner at the table. Excellent choice. Place is great. Food, service all just outstanding. Aloha!
