We had very good meals. My husband loved his ribs and I liked their duck dish. It had a "Hawaiian" feel to it but it wasn't. They needed to siphon in Hawaiian music from Izzy or Cazimero Brothers.

It took more than an hour for us to get our order taken and the food was slow to arrive - with the soup for one of our party not being delivered until 3 requests were made (although we think it was delivered to the wrong table). I had one drink and got no further offers of further drinks and... More

The food is a Hawaiian fusion style. The seafood and fruit smoothies were great. Service is good, there is a kids menu with reasonable prices. We went during a weekend in the fall so it was not crowded.

Kalani's is conveniently located in Heavenly Village (facing the ice skating rink that's there during the ski season). This restaurant is a bit more upscale (white tablecloths, quiet atmosphere, etc.), but still family friendly. The sushi was fresh. The starters and entrees were delicious and nicely plated, but the prices are a bit high in my opinion. The service was... More

My son and I ate at Kalani's last week and tried their Caterpillar roll and about fell out of our chairs. It was the BEST sushi roll we had ever tasted. We ended up getting another and then going back for dinner for two more. The service from the sushi chefs and from our waitress was superb!

Ate at Kalanie's with our party of 25 and the service and food was excellent. The waitstaff was very attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in Lake Tahoe.

We come to Kalani's every year when we visit South Lake Tahoe and it has been the same for the last ten years. Good food, good service and great atmosphere. Sushi is a little hit and miss, depends on the chef, but overall it is a great restaurant. Cocktails are strong and go down easy.

We had a great meal here! Our server was excellent and it was a nice change of pace from a lot of the other Heavenly Village places. This was a more adults only type of place. Our food was very good, but my only complaint was that it was a bit small of a portion for the price, so a... More

We spend ½ year in Hawaii so my wife's brother took us here for dinner. Food was average but was priced as if it was fine dining. I'd pass on it next time due to cost.

No menus left when we arrived . Took a long time to get service however restaurant was not full. Butter was rancid. Pointed out to waiter, smiled and left it on table. Food mediocre and small portions. Slow slow slow service. Sushi was above average.
