My husband and I came here for our honeymoon! We had drove by a couple times and the place always appeared busy, but it looked more higher end then we really wanted. On our last day we decided to do it anyway and I am...so glad we did! Our server Angelina was phenomenal! She helped us make the best choices! We were there for happy hour (which is a must, you won’t regret getting the frozen coconut mojito)! The food was amazing and we really enjoyed our evening! A little disappointed we waited so long to go!More

Did breakfast here with the family and my youngest ordered the bananas foster pancakes... it was basically dessert for the whole family. Crazy tasty!! Great location and open air... this was our relaxing breakfast spot all week.

They were short staffed the night we decided to have dinner. No surprise there since this has been common in the service industries over the past few months. Yet the staff and the food did not disappoint. They worked hard to bring our drinks and...food in a timely fashion without making anything feel rushed. The calamari, the burger, and the mahi were superb, and the fried banana for dessert was the perfect closing note. Keep in mind that the restaurant industry is experiencing shortages so accommodating you may be more difficult than usual. Understand that the staff is under significant stress already and if you show up with a bad attitude you'll get it reflected back at you through none other than your own fault. The servers are not your servants so don't treat them as such. Me and my wife had an incredible time and made sure to show our appreciation. We'll be returning for sure.More

The outside seating is really nice in the evening with tiki torches and nice planting. The inside less attractive. We wanted to sit outside and that's why we came here. people ran ahead of us and got the last outside table. When we were handed...our menus, another table opened up outside. The hostess came by and cleaned it (yay!) and then we politely asked if we could be seated there since that's why we went: to sit outside in tiki torch and breezy palm land to get some of the HI experience. We still had our menus and she still had the cleaning bottle. Easy. We didn't even have water. She just said "No." She was going to sit the people who had come in behind us there. No reservation. Completely empty inside seating. The food was decent and our waiter was great. We had shrimp linguini (very creamy and enjoyed) and ahi nachos (too salty and weird) and brie and bacon sandwich (voted "good" by my guest). The downside was the miserable hostess.More

So we had 4 meals here between us of which only the dessert was passable. The steak was greasy and chewy. The batter on the fish was soggy and the fish looked like it was frozen. This grub wouldn't pass muster at any price level....And given that the price is not cheap.....More

Sat immediately, ordered two South Kihei Coolers (tasty watermelon garnish) and began enjoying our first night off in months. We ate crisp romaine salads dressed perfectly with garlic toast warm from the oven, shredded parmesan and a Caesar dressing that transported us immediately to Rome...(just kidding). Our crispy macadamia crusted chicken came with fluffy white rice and melt- in- your- mouth bok choy. . . so well-prepared and delicious! Let me say this hotel is always quite unpretentious, yet prepares the most appetizing food here in South Kihei. And we plan to keep enjoying what they do year after year. Also a shout out to our one-of-a-kind server, Jesse—YOU ARE PERFECT in every way!!More

We went here for drinks during Happy Hour. Service was good and our server was very attentive. The Mai Tai's were good and that was our focus. The facility was just getting going and recovering from pandemic effects, so we were very understanding and patient....We had a great time and will be back in the future.More

Uber was more enjoyable than our dinner. That’s enough said right there. First off, service was incredibly slow, and sodas were flat. There was no coasters so there was water all over the sticky table, and did not refill our waters once. I ordered the...ahi poke bowl, it had so much wasabi and Sriracha that I asked the waitress to take it back. Gave me a new one without the sauce but the ahi itself was not fresh and still was somehow very spicy...my friend also got the poke and the wasabi was also affecting her pretty badly. My other friend got the kids cheese burger and rated it the worst cheese burger she’s ever had. Which says a lot considering she’s a burger connoisseur. The appetizer was coconut shrimp and was not the best, completely soaked in oil. Was excited to try their desert but everything was so bad we just decided to go home instead, which is rare since we love desert. Would never in my wildest dreams recommend this place to anyone, it would almost be an embarrassment to myself.More

The service was impeccable. We split a juicy rare hamburger with the best fries enjoyed in a long time. Simultaneously had the steak street tacos. Huge portions. Then with time to kill before our plane departure, we enjoyed the warmed brownie with coffee ice cream....Great selection of beer, wine, and specialty cocktails. Enjoy!More

As I recall, they close up pretty earlier. The bar is attached to some condos, so there are probably some noise restrictions.

Ami Ami closes at 9 pm but the Kamaole Poolside Cafe closes at 10 pm and they are both connected and use each others menu. Serving drinks until closing.
