We had a bite to eat. The food was not up to par (fish taco) and the service was terrible. All by all, not the right combo for a restaurant!

This place is (was) awesome! The food is out of this world. Unfortunately they have since closed. But perhaps if the owners continue to see great reviews they'll find another place to open it back up.

"Not your typical SI Italian", this "trendy" trattoria "fills a void" with its "excellent" cuisine served in "fancy" environs by staffers who treat you "really well"; yes, it's "high-priced" for the borough, but it's "crowded" nonetheless – be sure to "make a reservation."

Went for 40th birthday dinner and had a great evening. Food was near perfect, service was attentive without being intrusive. Really felt that they were doing a great job and intended on returning. I understand the family closed this restaurant since our visit. Shame as...More

Enjoyed our dinner last day of our vacation. Full moon, the moonlight reflecting on the ocean and the harbor view made it so special! Excellent presentation of the food, delicious food! I saw reviews stating they had "closed".... they are open at the Maalea Harbor!...More

Four of us ordered different dishes - the Ahi tuna (two different preps), Chef's special, cioppinno. Very good dishes, great service. Liked the food so much we returned a few days later - sadly there had a handwritten 'closed' sign on the door.

I'm sorry to report the Waterfront has closed their doors for good. I will miss them, they were always a destination during my Maui vacations.
