My wife and I had a wonderful time and we really enjoyed the food. We notice the large selection of bourbons and we asked if they had flights and they had 2 so we ordered both and it was just a random selection and they were great some we had before and some we didn't.

What an amazing dining experience! We didn’t order a lot of appetizers, but instead dove in with lots of delicious & quality red wine (a Grenache for him and a Nebbiolo for her) the table side Caesar salad and the smaller Tomahawk steak. A side of truffle fries completed the meal. More than enough for 2 so we ate the leftover steak over salad greens for lunch today. Plus a beautiful ambience all around.

A playful spot to gather poolside, KAPA Bar & Grill is the perfect spot to meet for lunch, dinner and sunset cocktails. The menu features Hawaii's natural and sustainable resources and features local interpretations on comforting favorites. Sip on our playful interpretations of tropical cocktails, while playing vintage games, like shuffleboard and billiards. After sunset, gather by the new firepit and strike up a conversation.

The service and the food was excellent. A little pricier than what we usually like to spend but we made this our splurge meal. There was live music which was pleasant and not too loud.

Great food, beverages and service. Construction outside was noisy and distracting, but not the restaurant’s fault. I will go back.
