The restaurant is located at the Montage Resort. Very beautiful property to walk through to get to restaurant. Went for breakfast and everything was fabulous. The crab omelette was light but flavorful and the avocado toast was amazing. They make their own bread! Since breakfast...was so good we decided to go for dinner. Cocktails were delicious. All the appetizers were outstanding. We had the lamb and salmon but the filet was melting in our mouths! Our server had great recommendations and provided great service. Will be back again!More

My friends were staying at Montage and I visited them twice while we were staying south on Kaanapali beach. Both times we ended up at Cane & Canoe and had excellent food and beverage experience with Kiha behind the bar. On our first trip, we...started with our standard drinks and after a little curious prompting from Kiha about our tastes, he created some custom drinks for our crew that were fantastic and unique. The food was fantastic as well -- served promptly and in line with what you would expect from a property of this caliber. It was particularly interesting for me due to the contrast with the property that I was staying at -- where I felt more like a member of a cattle car. Well done Cane & Canoe, and thank you Kiha for the memories!More

The service was extremely poor. We placed reservations two months in advance. However, they could not seat us with our entire group and they didn’t even try to. The waiter would not come by in a timely manner to get our drinks order. We didn’t...even have place settings for our food. We had to walk over, find the waiter, and then get a fork. They also brought in the wrong order. When I tried to talk to manager, Peter, to provide constructive feedback, the hostess said he was with a guest. The hostess took my contact information but he never called. I stopped by an hour later and he was not available to speak to me. I’m not one to post negative reviews, however, the manager seemed to not even bother to take time to hear us out. The Montage is a great hotel with a beautiful view and the food was good, however, the poor service at the restaurant ruined the meal. Very disappointing.More

The food was over seasoned, the fish was dry and they were out of 3 different white wines we asked for. Simply put they can't execute. It was an average experience for a very high price. For half that price there are two dozen other...restaurants in the area that will provide better food and a better experience. Just because it's expensive doesn't mean it's going to be good. Our mistake was not reading previous reviews.More

Our family had dinner here on our last night in Maui. The setting is perfect--the restaurant is located in the Montage Hotel, which is a beautiful resort property, and the drive up is impressive. Valet service was spot-on--no ticket; they simply remember your name and...your vehicle. The restaurant itself is gorgeous--dark woods and interesting accents, wonderful ambiance, with a view out onto the pool and courtyard, and all of it lit with tiki torches; it was rainy on the night we visited, but even so, the whole picture was very placid and picturesque. We had live music playing softly; a little slack key guitar while we enjoyed cocktails. Our server (Chris) was great--he knew the menu inside and out, was on with drink and wine recommendations, and made great banter while visiting the table without being at all obtrusive. The only thing lacking, really, was the food. And to be clear, it wasn't bad at all--but for the price point (most of your entrees are in the $60 per plate range), it did not wow anyone. Appetizers were all very good, but the entrees lacked "bang." I had the "fish of the moment" (not of the day--of the moment--so order quickly, before the moment passes), which was a seared ahi with wasabi glaze. It was very good. But my son's rack of lamb was a solid B, and my wife's filet was not outstanding (a bit dry, and lacking in flavor). Our daughters each had macaroni and cheese, and both were quite unimpressed. I guess you take that for what it's worth, but to be fair, they are both mac-n-cheese connoisseurs). The desserts (a white chocolate cheesecake and the chocolate trio) were good, but not really exceptional. We will certainly consider coming here on our next visit--the place is so nice that it's worth it for the atmosphere alone. And again, it's not like you're getting bad food. But ne may come away wishing they'd step up the game in the kitchen, just a little... Worth doing.More

Our very first time to Cane and Canoe was a disappointment as we felt we had blown one of the night we had left in Maui. It’s a beautiful setting and the musicians were excellent. Service was slow...very slow. One of our guests didn’t receive...a drink he had ordered, server forgot to put in appetizer orders, I asked for horseradish with my steak, never got it. And frankly, the food was just ok. Very expensive....More

Very upscale restaurant. All 4 of us ordered the fish special at the suggestion of the waiter. It was overcooked and very average. We mentioned it too the staff but not in a complaining way. They really didn't seem to care.

I was impressed by this restaurant. The service (valet, hostess, waiter) and ambiance was impeccable. The food was excellent. An expensive meal, but very reasonable for the experience.

Hated the movie, HATE having cats walking around a restaurant, and climbing on the chairs begging for scraps. Asked the waiter and then the manager to remove the cats or move our table and all we got was a shrug of the shoulders. This was...a special restaurant for us, but we will NOT be returning.More

The food was great and the service outstanding. The views and atmosphere make this place ideal for a special occasion.
