We ate here one night. The food was good. The service and atmosphere were nice. It is a little too expensive for what you get. We might eat here again if staying at the property but there are other places nearby that offer better value.

Perfect sunset meal. Salad, appetizer, cocktails all flavorful, hit the spot. Our entrees were so delicious. Try the coffee steak. And if you like coffee ice cream do not it forget to leave room. OMG!

My husband and I were looking forward to dinner at the Canoe House, which we loved when we last dined there a number of years ago. We were very disappointed. The setting is still magnificent, but the service was nothing special and the food only average. My mahi mahi was overpowered by a sweet pineapple sauce and my husband's fish... More

A beautiful romantic setting right at the waters edge for a family visiting Hawaii. The restaurant is one of the best on the island with yummy choices for dinner and fine service. All enjoyed their selections and the kids too. A busy restaurant so remember to make reservations. There is free valet parking at the hotel

This is a beautiful setting and the food is Devine. Most of the ingredients are grown on the island of Hawaii, so salads, vegetables, and main courses are very fresh and so well prepared. This is a place for a special celebratory dinner.

Stunning views of the ocean this restaurant is a must to dine at. It is located in the Mauna Lani Bay Resort and there is a shuttle bus that will take around the Mauna Lani area free of charge. Reservations are recommended. The service was great, we had a very beautiful view of the ocean. The staff were knowledgeable about... More

Hands down the best meal and setting that we had on our recent trip to the Big Island. The staff was very professional and knew the menu well. Each of the waitstaff had an assistant that was available if the waiter/waitress was not. In addition, the tables were spaced apart quite nicely and not on top of one another. Three... More

We were staying at the Mauna Lani Bay Resort and decided to do their high end restaurant one night. It was not difficult to get same day reservations. In the spring sunset will occur at about 6:35 PM. The menu was not extensive but typical for resort hotel fare. It will cost about $65-75 per person without wine. We subsequently... More

It was our first day visiting big island and we just realized that reservations were recommended for good restaurants around this area when we called around. Luckily, somebody canceled and we had the seats here. We were seated around 6:00pm. This is the best time to enjoy the gorgeous sunset. Surprisingly, food were also decent while we didn't expect too... More

I had their amazing beef short rib, and my wife had the mochiko chicken, both excellent, and topped it off with an amazing chocolate dessert to die for! Fantastic meal, great service, wonderful & romantic view of the sunset, come hungry!
