Went here for dinner on a Wednesday night. The biggest downside of the experience is getting there. There's only valet parking which is a bit annoying if you're not at the hotel, but the lack of signs and parking lot makes it difficult to know...More

Here's what sets Red Salt apart from the rest of the dining opportunities in Poipu: it's menu and preparation of dishes AND the extraordinary service. When you enter (after walking thru the hotel lobby) you'll notice instantly that there is none of the typical Hawaiian...More

A very nice setting for fine dining. Food was again excellent and service top notch. It was a full restaurant this visit, so it was a bit noisy but not bad. Menu choices were very good for any palate. We will definitely visit again!

We ate dinner here two nights. The seared ahi entree was amazing. We shared that on our first night there and it is what caused us to go back a second night. The tomato salad is a great starter as well.

Nice breakfast with a view of the ocean. Breakfast package / buffet kind of mediocre, but menu items were great, service excellent. Price is commensurate with hotel rates, so it's not cheap, but it is good.

We ate at this restaurant twice, once with the tasting menu, and again because we liked our experience so much. Our service with Zack was top notch, and the atmosphere is very quiet, relaxing, and a bit fancy. Every plate was presented beautifully, and cooked...More

Select nights, the Red Salt Lounge is host to a sushi bar featuring the day’s freshest catch in innovative, isle-inspired rolls. Lounge and sushi bar seating are not available for reservation and is first come, first served. During morning hours, Red Salt offers tropical takes on traditional breakfast dishes, such as lobster benedict and lemon-pineapple soufflé pancakes, recently featured by Food Network.
