Dropped in around 9 AM on a week day and were seated after about a 15 minute wait. We had been walking for a couple of hours and the complementary mini muffins served as a appetizer were great. We tried the blueberry french toast which was nice, and the eggs Benedict, which were done in a local flavor style that included fried potatoes. Both dishes were fine, but I though a more classic version of the Benedict would have been better.

Reviewed By BobKatUSA

We were very disappointed with our meal last night, though service by Wilma was very good. The compressed watermelon salad as a starter was quite good, so things started off well. However, when it came to what should have been their best showing, the fish entrees were disappointing. My husband had the Opah. He described it as “adequate” but said the fish was not the star of the show as it should have been. I had the Macadamia nut topped Mahi-mahi. It was over cooked to the point of being dry and lacked any macadamia nut flavor. To be fair, they offered to remake it or provided something else, but by that time by husband would have finished his meal. The manager also came over to apologize. We were very surprised when the check came, that they took off the bottle of wine we had, which was about twice the price of the fish entree, so they really did try to make it right in every way possible. They also gave us a complimentary dessert as we were celebrating a special occasion—a baked Hawaiian, made with coconut and passion fruit ice cream. Too sweet for me, but my husband really enjoyed the combination of flavors. We have been to Kauai many times and dined here every trip, so we were very disappointed that the quality of the food and preparation has declined. It is a spectacular setting and the service was very good, however.

When we landed in Kauai, HI a week ago to celebrate my birthday weekend, the missus was on the lookout for a nice place to have a celebratory lunch. We're so glad that she decided on the original Duke's (first of its name, literally!) because the place was all about embracing the Aloha spirit, and tasting the real Hawaii!Location (10/10):We used Google Maps to get here from the airport, but it took us to the Marriott entrance instead. The kind valet there informed us that we could use the free parking and take the short down hill path to our destination. En route we passed by Duke's cheerful and helpful valet who pointed us in the right direction. When we arrived at the beachfront entrance, we were blown away by the beautiful view of the blue ocean and the green hilly coast! Service (15/10): We received jovial Alohas from the staff and, though the tables with the best view were taken, were promptly escorted to a table which had a lovely view. Jake L served us for the remainder of the afternoon, and what a delight it was to converse with him! When we were struggling with narrowing down on drinks and food to order from a menu filled with yummy offerings, Jake came to our rescue and recommended the most delicious items. He was also my wife's partner-in-crime when it came to surprising me with a huge complimentary Hula Pie as a birthday treat (the same way I had surprised my wife during her birthday dinner at Duke's Waikiki 3 years ago - what goes around, comes around!). Jake and the valet (my bad that I forgot the nice chap's name) enthusiastically shared helpful tidbits for our camping plan at the remote Polihale State, and pointed us to Ishihara Market for shopping local (where we found some really yummy poke). Mahalo, folks! Food and drinks (12/10):Everything that we drank and ate was yummilicious, I kid you not! The lip-smacking drinks that we ordered were La Pina (Fresh pineapple, coconut cream and hana bay gold rum with a dark rum float served in a locally grown pineapple) and, on Jake's recommendation, Kalapaki Mai Tai (Koloa spice, coconut and dark rums, fresh squeezed passion and pineapple juices). The pupus (appetizers) of Crispy Coconut Shrimp and Macadamia Nut Crab Wontons with plum sauce were both scrumptious. We decided to share the delicious entrée - Fresh fish of the day, and Jake kindly split it for us. The complimentary Hula Pie was rich, creamy, chocolaty, and might I add overwhelming! This is the only item that we couldn't finish and had to take to-go! To summarize, of the three Duke's that we've been to so far (Oahu, Seattle and Kauai), this one takes the top spot hands down. True that the visit left us with a decent dent on the bank balance, but the entire experience (not to mention how it got our trip off to a fantastic start) was totally worth it!
