We had a wonderful dining experience at the recently remodeled top floor of Leilani’s on the Beach. I would have given it 5 stars, but as the evening went along, the service really fell off.

The updated design is very open and modern with subtle, but traditional Hawaiian décor. The views of the ocean and both the Islands of Lanai and Molokai were unobstructed and spectacular, particularly at sunset.

I ordered filet mignon and have to say it’s one of the best I’ve have ever eaten. Great flavor and cooked to perfection. My husband’s beer arrived chilled and my cocktail was yummy. They offer a reasonable priced Chef’s tasting dinner. It looked tempting, but we ended up ordering off the regular menu.

I highly recommend making a reservation, especially if you want a seat along the railing.

We made reservations well in advance and still were given a “not so good” table. But the staff was friendly and professional so we decided to stay. Location is the only reason to eat at this restaurant but at night, the view obviously disappears. Ahi sashimi was very fishy. Not just slightly fishy as sashimi can be, but overpoweringly so. Huli Huli Chicken arrived and the portion was tiny. It was on a sickly sweet bed of rice. It also had hardly any sauce. Go elsewhere. There’s much better food in Maui.

Ate here for lunch, great views of Molokai and Lanai. It was great to sit and listen to the daily live music.

Really enjoyed dining here! I suggest you make a reservation, especially in peak times. We arrived right at our reservation time and were seated immediately. Food was amazing, and make sure you save some room for the Hula Pie - it is a must experience if you’ve never had it! I would not hesitate to return!

Food was good but service not so much. Beach views are fantastic. Restaurant did not seem that busy and I believe the server was new as he was unfamiliar with the menu.
