Sorry but we had a great dinner last night but our waiter, Aaron, was horrible. The worst waiter we had during our 2 weeks in Kauai. He was just not interested in -- asking if you wanted another drink? how was our meal? would you...More

Great bar/restaurant at the Sheraton. Food is better than bar quality. Not surprising since the menu is designed by the same chef who does RumFire. Staff is attentive, bartenders are friendly and the managers are great. Making sure to stop by to see how your...More

Aloha, It's very nice to hear you were able to have a good time here at Lava's, even though it was raining out. The team here, at Lava's, does a great job trying to make that happen. Mahalo, Emily

we ate here only once, were not too impressed with the food. the prices are rather high so if you eat there daily is going to run you up a large bill. The good part it has a nice view.

I loved the entertainment. The portions I had were large and there were special prices at times, though regular prices were a bit high.

Resort breakfast buffets are always expensive - but this was out of line. It was more than the St Regis on the other side of the island. We went to the local market and bought yogurt and fruit for the rest of the stay. The...More

Food is a bit overpriced but decent deals at happy hour for a resort hotel. Craft beer was $4, fancy drinks 8-9 bucks.

As you walk from the beach or pool you enter this peaceful restaurant with Hawaiian music playing and you think "this looks awesome," looks can be deceiving. The food wasn't very good since the majority of the menu was fried food. The service was also...More

I got food poisoning from the Resort's LAVA café on the first night we were there, which meant staying in our room, sick, until the next day. This also meant missing our anniversary Sunday brunch that I had planned to celebrate and re-live our honeymoon.
