Lahaina Grill

If you had only one place to eat in Maui for dinner, where would you go? There are so many good places to eat in Maui it might be difficult to decide. Hubby and I would chose Lahaina Grill especially if price was not an object.

Lahaina Grill is only open for dinner and reservations are highly recommended. Hubby and I made reservations for the bar at 6 p.m. However, there was a cancellation and we were able to get a table in the dining room.

Hubby ordered the Kula Mixed Greens ($13), Wagyu Beef Ravioli ($21), and Chef Arne’s Home-made Meatballs ($37). I ordered the cake walk ($24), sweet Kula Corn Soup ($13), and the Creamed Spinach ($8). The Meatballs were good but the sauce for the meatballs was the bomb, sweet and very flavorful.

Hubby’s choices were the best. Although, a lot of people rave about the cake walk, I thought the ahi did not have much taste and the lobster and shrimp cakes were too dense and compact with not much flavor. However, the Wagyu Beef Ravioli was outstanding, especially the sauce. The Creamed Spinach was rich and flavorful too. The soup was creamy with fresh Kula corn.

We also ordered and shared the triple berry dessert. The crust tasted like a cookie and the berries were seasoned perfectly. It was awesome and so good that we considered getting another piece.

Lahaina Grill has a four-course tasting menu for $78/person with a choice of land or sea entrees.

I highly recommend the Wagyu beef ravioli, Meatballs, and the triple berry pie however, I’d pass on the cake walk.

Street or lot parking is available. Service was excellent and very friendly, attentive and professional. For reservations call (808) 667-5117. Lahaina Grill is located at 127 Lahainaluna Road.
