Amazing food and service. For our wedding last November, we offered the choices of braised shortribs of beef, filet of mahi mahi and macadamia crusted chicken. All were delicious but the beef was the favorite by far. Our appetizers: sliders, edamame samosas, calamari, and coconut shrimp. Everything was fabulous and I am still getting rave reviews about the food. Thank you, Cafe O'Lei!

This was the surprise out of everything I booked for the wedding. We chose Cafe O'Lei Kihei to hold our pre-wedding dinner without tasting any of the food or even seeing the location.
From the point of initial contact via email the whole process went smoothly - Claire who was our email contact person gave us options for all the restaurants under the Cafe O'Lei banner and we chose the one in Kihei because of the laid back atmosphere.
Food was served family style and none of my guests left hungry - more importantly everyone kept raving on about how good the ribs were and the fried banana cheesecake.
The team who served us that night were amazing - they were friendly, on hand when we needed them to be and kept food coming at a regular pace.
My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better way to welcome our guests to our destination wedding.

We had zoo many comments about the food we served at our wedding, people loved it!! The quality was amazing and the presentation was gorgeous!! It didn't look or taste at all like a 'large catered' meal, it looked and tasted like we had just ordered in a restaurant!! As the bride and groom, we missed cocktail and appi hour due to taking pictures, but when we finished with the photos, Cafe O'Lei had a tray of appis they brought over just for us!! Such a nice touch and so perfect since we were so hungry! lol. We also had a few people attending with a few different and very severe food allergies and had absolutely no problems dealing with them. Everyone got exactly what they ordered, (including three guests who showed up to surprise up last minute and literally ordered their meals a few hours before the wedding), and it was all hot and yummy, and looked and tasted amazing, our guests raved about it!! Thanks Cafe O'Lei for making such a huge part of our special day so perfect!!

Marcie with Café O'Lei was awesome. She was personally there to make sure everything was perfect. It was. The appetizers were awesome and entrée's were consistent, creatively plated and DELICIOUS! The energy and attitudes of the servers were awesome; it was such a great event. My only regret is I didn't eat more!!!
Marcie was great at assisting with putting the menu together and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you Sandra Wagner for recommending!!!

The food at our tasting was amazing. Everything was good, but the braised short ribs, chicken lettuce wrap, and sashimi were outstanding. We ended up swapping out the teriyaki beef item in the buffet for the short ribs. Unfortunately, sashimi was out of our budget.

We chose a buffet for our wedding that featured kalua pig, mahimahi, the yummy short ribs, and local greens and starches (moloka'i sweet potatoes). Everyone raved about the food.

Amazing food and service staff for our wedding! Absolutely delicious appetizers and food. We did the buffet style dinner and the chicken/fish/steak were all equally yummy. They were very easy to work with and emailed me with a menu that fit our budget and included all the things we wanted. Our wedding guests included some picky/LA foodies and they all enjoyed the food as well!

We had Cafe O'Lei as our caterer for our wedding and we were very impressed. We had lots of variety for food options, and they worked with us to modify the menu to our specific tastes. They were very professional on our wedding day, and always made sure everyone was taken care of and had enough to eat. The food was great! We also had pupus during our cocktail reception, and although I didn't get to try them all, what I did have was deicious and our guests were VERY impressed with the options and quality.

We used Cafe O'Lei to cater our beautiful wedding at the Olowalu Plantation just south of Lahaina in Maui, Hawaii. Working with Cafe O'Lei was great. My husband Luke and his brother went out to Maui to meet Dana from Cafe O'Lei - the head chef, and to do a food tasting. They came back raving about her and the food! She suggested new dishes we hadn't thought of, and helped create the menu for our plated dinner. And food at the wedding was absolutely delicious!

Our Appetizers (Pupus) were:
- Coconut Shrimp w/ sweet chili and cilantro - Rave reviews from all our guests!!
- Grilled brie and bacon mini sandwiches - Yummy!

Salad:
- Shrimp, papaya and avocado salad with lilikoi and papaya see dressing - it was AMAZING - one of the best salads we've ever had and worth the extra $$

Dinner entrees:
- Macadamia crusted mahi-mahi
- Grilled Polynesian Check
- Duet of Filet mignon and macademia crusted island mahimahi
- Chops of Colorado Lamb

ALL delicious! The only thing is we planned dinner at sunset, when everyone wanted to take pictures, so unfortunately our food got cold before we ate it, but regardless it was still absolutely yummy!

CO'L was great and on everything. THey were professional and nice and we can't wait to go to their restaurants when we are back in Maui next time. I STRONGLY recommend them as a caterer!
