Our 1st Luau 2023
Winifred_M, Sep 2023
First time experiencing the Luau, it was amazing and the colors were vibrant. It was also nice to hear the history of where the Polynesians came from and how their rituals were performed

Dancers and musicians, the show did not last 3 hours as advertise, only 2 1/2 . The buffet was very good, well organize. Drinks were very good, the night was great. Guess were well behave. Parking was only 5 dollars. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Great stories and food. Crowd was too large.

The storytelling narrator and dancers were very good. Lots of variety in the food, with delicious local flavors. Too many people in poor positions for show: many phones held up recording so people in back couldn't see. Spring for VIP tickets or expect poor positioning.
Worth the money!

Food was excellent. Entertainment was good. An overall great experience. Would use to book events again the future.

Great food, great show, drinks were good and they even offered coffee. Didn't love the ants on our chairs and table.
Big gathering, great dancing
Mary_E, Sep 2023
Loved the dancing! Food and drink also good. Our biggest complaint was the enormous size of the crowd. Not an intimate dinner experience by any stretch. Still enjoyable though.
Exciting, fun and delicious food.
Dominique_W, Sep 2023
Food was delicious. Still not a fan of poi. The salmon ceviche was chefs kiss.
I loved the dancing and the culture it was fun. I got to see a Haka, which was a dream of mine.

Emily_E, Aug 2023
The host was fantastic, as was the performers. But the food left a lot to be desired. The food needed more flavor and the pork was dry. The pastry was dry. It was quite disappointing that the food wasn't up to par. I left there hungry

Great history, the prayer, food, dancers and the musicians. Enjoyed everything . Made new friends and hope to keep in touch
Connie_C, Aug 2023
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the story telling music and dancing. Our favorite was the fire dance.
The food, especially the pork, was delicious.
The staff and bartenders were great
Great Show Ok Food

The dancing was great! I had a great time. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. A night to remember.
Wendy_A, Aug 2023
It was a lot of FUN, we have never been to a Luau and it was a GREAT experience. There was plenty of food and it was DELICIOUS (except the Poi)
Judy_M, Jul 2023
The show was good, the food tasty. The drinks were terrible and the service poor. For the price paid, it was unacceptable. We could have had as good a dinner for far less, and the show wasn't worth the premium we paid.
