We ate here our first night on Maui, and we will be back. The menu is Asian-inspired, but also unique. The service was superb; we asked for our courses to be slowed down so we could enjoy our wine, and they were happy to do so. The wine list was very nice, and did not seem to have the mark... More

Our server, Serena, was outstanding, helping us with the menu choices, intuiting that we wanted to simply enjoy our cocktails before the food service began, and generally checking in to be sure we had everything we needed. The food was outstanding, and we enjoyed having a western view as the sky turned pink. This is, in my opinion, the best... More

Made a reservation ( good thing we did, very busy place) were greeted at the front desk and our table was waiting.

Ko's is one of my favorite restaurants to eat here at home. The portions are good, the food is great and the service is awesome. Lumpia's are always a good start for an appetizer. The bread bridge is great too! Love the lilikoi butter. The Harvest salad is heaven in a bowl; the dressing is to die for which makes... More

Amazing food and staff! Drew, our main server, was outstanding with his wine selection, appetizers, and desserts. They really made the night special by surprising us with lei's and a complimentary dessert sampler. The ambience under the Maui moon is hard to beat. You gotta try Oishii Sushi, Lamb, Pork Chop and let Drew pick the wine! Just wonderful, can't... More

Beautiful spot, my food was good, though my travelling companions loved theirs. We would go back. The fish with coconut curry was the most popular dish at our table.

The food was wonderful, as was the service. The patio setting was very nice even though it is poolside at a big hotel. We would definitely return. An interesting & great menu.

My family and I ate at Ko the other night, and none of us were too impressed. The service was great, and our appetizers were all very good, but the entrees were pretty mediocre. I expected a lot given the reviews, and a good start with the appetizers, but seriously the entrees didn't cut it. Flavors just weren't there. I... More
