This place was close to our lodging so we went here as much for convenience as anything. Turned out to be one of the best dining experiences of the trip. Service was tight, food was good. Everyone had something different: Duck Confit, Monchong (fresh catch) featured dish, and ribs (not sure the specifics) and all were good. Appetizer of ahi... More

Dinner here never gets old particularly if the weather is good and skies are clear. Start with a stroll along the Mauna Lani's beach through their fishponds. When ready for dinner, arrive just before sunset and ask for an outside table. It's one if the best sunset views you can get while enjoying an excellent meal. Start with their pupu... More

We stay at the Mauna Lani every year and had not tried the Canoe House for a few years. Went again yesterday. Service was horrific. Server spent most of her time talking to a couple at the table next to us who she apparently knew. She delivered the food but never came back to see it had been prepared correctly,... More

The Canoe House was AMAZING! Everything from the rolls they brought to our table to the chocolate truffles at the end did not disappoint! We went two nights in a row because of how delicious our meals were and how beautiful the setting was. I would highly suggest asking for a sunset view table! As for the food I would... More

Had not been to Canoe House for 15 years or so and were interested to see if it was as good as we remembered. It was! The night was very windy and we requested an inside table for our 7PM reservation. We arrived a bit early and was told there were a few parties that were ahead of us for... More

We had one of those memorable meals at the Canoe House where everything , and I mean everything, was just about perfect. Arrive early for your dinner reservation and take the opportunity to stroll around the beautiful grounds of the Mauna Lani. One of the fish ponds near the restaurant even includes small hammer-head sharks. At the Canoe House, you... More

Waiter was a tad pushy for us to order, not very busy, so kept putting him off to enjoy. Expensive wine, expensive everything, so 2 hr dinner was about right for $$$$$ + $$$$$ tip

The Captain's Table at the Canoe House is a wonderful experience. Although it seats up to 8 people. Chef Allan Nagun's philosophy is to offer only to one group. So my wife and I had this large elevated table to ourselves with an unobstructed view across the patio to the ocean. The meal is leisurely and superb cuisine. We have... More
