Ahhhhh-mazing!! If you are on the northern part of the island, BOOK THIS NOW! They only operate on Tuesday and Wednesday nights so make a reservation. This is farm to table dining under a white tent with communal table seating. For 5 courses, you can't beat the price and it is perfectly portioned. How they are able to time everything... More

This was a beautiful location outside in a tent under soft lighting. It was a predetermined 5 course menu. The chef did a great job! While the courses are different twist on basics, the chef does a great job of perfecting unique flavors that are delicious and not polarizing to a large audience. The service was great and beyond accommodating... More

This is a great place to experience farm to table cuisine in Kauai. It was a great change of pace from the touristy restaurant scene. I thoroughly enjoyed trying some of the local foods in creative preparations. It's maybe not quite on par with what you might get in more sophisticated, foodie cities, but it was still very good. We... More

This was an amazing experience! We sat down at sunset in perfect temps and immediately made new friends. We enjoyed 5 courses of delicious local food as we sipped wine (its a BYO) and chatted and laughed with all the people around us. The portions were somewhat small but we left with the perfect amount of food in our bellies.... More

My friends and our children go to Kauai every summer and this was our second time at Kauai Ono. There is a great communal atmosphere and the food is delicious. It is magical to be eating under the stars. It is the best of what is great about Kauai - really one of a kind. [First timers note - this... More

One of a kind experience, delicious and fresh food that was picked that morning. Lovely to be seated next to strangers that forced you to talk and get to know each other. Beautiful sunset.

No point in me going over the menu from our visit because they plan menus based on what is fresh and available. Expect lots of innovation. Do not expect to go and ask for something prepared especially for you. I have never run into this, but if you find something done wrong with the dish they present, I am sure... More

The meal is a price fix 6 course meal with no menus. The chef makes local, in season food righ out of his state of the art gourmet kitchen located in a... More

This was the most delicious dinner we had while on the island! The concept is fun and creative and knowing all of the ingredient were local was great. The chef combines them in creative ways. The only drawback was the amount of bugs later in the evening, even if you had used bug spray. However, we would definitely go back... More

Funky high end experience under a tent, next to highway with plenty of bugs. Locally sourced food is good but overrated compared to other farm to tables meals I've experienced on the mainland. I love tasting menus but both my husband and myself left hungry...which is no bueno considering the price point ($60pp). The experience is good for tourists interested... More
