Hot sourdough bread and butter, with Red Salt sprinkled on top was amazing! The food and service were excellent. We enjoyed a Mother's Day special dinner when staying at the Marriott Resort next door. They have sushi and a wonderful bar with the best drinks and bartenders we came across during our week there with friends who visit 2x per... More

Everything that arrived at our table was cold. Even the $50 burger and fries. Really? Cold fries?Need I say more? Food quality otherwise was good, and the ambiance is wonderful. Truthfully, not worth it. Save your money and go eat somewhere else.

We stayed at the Koa Kea for a week and enjoyed unbelievable buffet breakfasts in the restaurant every day. Also had light dinners delivered to our room on 2 nights and everything was excellent, Our only complaint was somewhat limited selections on the dinner menu..

Went for dinner and was impressed. My wife had the lobster gnocchi and thought it was the best gnocchi she's ever had. I had the $50 dollar hamburger. Wagyu beef, cheese, bacon, lobster and fois gras. Wow!, I won't be telling my cardiologist about this! Absolutely amazing. Wine was good, service great.

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. I visited this restaurant with my family (a 1 year old included). The food was excellent. I am from Chicago and we are a steak town. I often try steaks in other cities to be disappointed. However, the steak here was phenomenal. We also had the lobster gnocchi. All of the food was... More

Reviews on Red Salt were part of the reason we stayed at this hotel - and that was smart! The breakfast menu was interesting and very good. Lunches at the pool/beach house were also good .... and we opted for sushi at the bar for dinner two nights and we thought excellent. Not one meal disappointed!

Great food, amazing service! We ate here several times during our trip (we stayed at the Ko'a Kea) and never had a bad meal. The sliders were so good, and the risotto was mouth watering.
