With an opulent dining room boasting incredible views of Hanalei Bay below and Bali Hai peak above, the Kaua‘i Grill at the St. Regis Hotel Princeville is one of the premiere steakhouses on island, and one of the best Princeville Hawaii restaurants. The brainchild of Michelin-award winning Jean-Georges Vongerichten, this eclectic eatery is shaped after a nautilus, with the windows and railings spiraling towards a central ruby-red glass chandelier in the shape of a hibiscus. The menu is even more dazzling, with a hand selected mix of Jean-Georges favorite appetizers, salads, and main courses from around the world, each made from the highest quality meats and freshest, local ingredients.
With rotating seasonal offerings and a decadent prix fix tasting menu, you can always count on something new, innovative, and delicious at Kaua‘i Grill. Start your meal with a light salad of Kailani Field Gatherings with Asian pear and candied walnuts in an orchard cider vinaigrette, Braised Kurobota Pork Belly, or Beef Bone Marrow with grilled ciabatta, a shallot marmalade, and a Meyer lemon gremolata. Or, opt for fresh seafood like the Ahi Tuna Tartar with spicy radish and ginger marinade, or the Black Pepper Octopus with tarragon puree.
