We reserved a table for 9 AM via OpenTable but didn't need to as the restaurant wasn't busy. We got a great seat right on the water. My son, who is a bit of a "biscuits and gravy" aficionado ordered KOA's house-made version with a side of bacon. The portion was huge, and it tasted fantastic! Glad he let me have a bite! I ordered the goat cheese and leek omelet, which came with potatoes and toast. The food was prepared perfectly and tasted great! My 10-year-old son loves soccer, and the World Cup was playing at the bar. I appreciated the friendly interaction the hostess, bartender, and waiter had with him as he went over several times to check the score. Highly recommend this place for breakfast! It's expensive, but the portion, taste, location, and service are well worth it!

The food was just okay, with none of us really enjoying our meals like we usually do in Maui, but the service was abysmal. In total, we probably waited an hour or so for our waitress during our time there. We didn't plan on spending nearly two hours at a restaurant, which basically killed the rest of the night for us, but the fact that the food was just average made it that much worse. The location is terrific, though that's not nearly enough to overcome the issues. On top of that, this was somehow the most expensive meal we had in Maui.

We wondered why this place wasn’t as crowded as the place next store...now we know. It was not busy at all, yet our waitress was no where to be found. Took for ever to take our order. Even longer to get water; don’t expect a refill. Food took longer than it should’ve, and was not worth the wait. Had to go ask for our check - found her in the kitchen drinking a cup of coffee. What a waste of a great view.

What a location....what a view. The food was fantastic. The Pina Colada was probably the best I’ve ever had and I’ve had a few. Our server was friendly and very attentive. This will definitely be a new favorite in Lahaina.

We went to a recommended restaurant and the wait was waaaay too long. So we wondered around and saw this place. Only half hour wait. (we didn't make reservations). Were seated in 15 minutes. The food was out of this world and all 4 of us ordered something different to share. Our waitress was beyond nice and even gave us a drink to try. If we like, we pay, if not, on the house. Well, we ordered 3 more. Same went for dessert. This is when is was Koa's Seaside, (I forgot to post unitl looking at pictures). Not sure if still the same but we will definitely try it again when we go back. We even took a picture of it so we can find it when we come back.
