Our wedding planner booked with Cafe O'Lei so we didn't look up the restaurant beforehand. Based on the tasty food and super friendly staffs on our wedding day we'd strongly recommend this restaurant, especially if you want to try something local. For appetizers we had garlic crostini, Kalua pork canapé, chicken satay, and crispy calamari. They were really thoughtful in saving us some appetizers while we were away taking pictures so we didn't miss those amazing calamari. We had a Hawaiian style buffet with green salad, somen noodle (a must-try), mani-mahi, chiken, pork, steak, stir-fried vegetables and some of the best sweet potatoes I've ever had (from Molokai). Most of our guests were first-timers to Hawaii and they were very interested in local food after our reception ;)

Thank you so much for the exceptional service and amazing cuisine that was prepared for our wedding in Maui! We had the braised short ribs(huge yummy serving size which was awesome), macadamia nut crusted chicken (yum), and the salmon (yum again). The appetizers (calamari, hummus, chicken satay) were very appetizing and delicious. All in all, outstanding work all around and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect caterer to help celebrate our wedding day!

Great food and great presentation! We had passed appetizers during cocktail hour and a Hawaiian buffet for our small wedding. They did not disappoint! We had a couple of food allergies and they were able to modify the menu to accommodate. And the best part, since we were away taking pictures during cocktail hour, they brought the groom and me a plate of the appetizers we missed. My only regret from the night, was not eating more of the great food!

Cafe O'Lei catered our wedding at Olowalu last month, and they were amazing! My husband and I were fortunate enough to travel to Maui about 7 months before our wedding on a scouting trip. Our planner lined up a tasting with Cafe O'Lei and we were very impressed! We met with Napa who was fabulous throughout the tasting. The shrimp papaya salad is amazing! On the wedding day, we were so busy taking photos and talking to guests that we didn't get much of a chance to have any appetizers, but the catering staff saved some for us and gave us our own little plate with each appetizer so that we could try them all. The entrees were all so yummy, and the portions were huge! Everyone kept commenting on how delicious everything was and how attentive the staff were. We are so happy with their services! A few days after the wedding, we decided that we wanted to eat at their restaurant one last time before heading back home. Our wedding planner ended up coordinating a reservation for us on our last night, which happened to be a busy Saturday night. We arrived and were immediately taken to our own reserved table. We were greeted by Napa, who checked on us a few times throughout the night and really took care of us once again. I couldn't believe how great the staff was throughout the entire process from the tasting, to the wedding day itself, and to the farewell dinner we had on our last night. They really made us feel special and important, which just made our entire wedding experience that much better!

We used Café O’Lei to cater both our rehearsal dinner (Elua Pavilion) and 3/6/16 wedding (Olowalu Plantation House) for 45 guests. We always had PLENTY of food, different menus for each event, and the guests said it was the best food they had on the island/ever! The wait staff is great- VERY attentive to any dietary restrictions, and willing to personalize service to your needs. We had 2 guests with birthdays on our wedding day, so the wait staff hand delivered a special small pie we picked up from Leoda’s with a candle to the noted guest as we sang to them. It was a lovely touch and Café O’Lei was very willing to help. They also boxed up everything I wasn’t able to eat (I slammed down their amazing papaya and avocado salad and was full!) so we could take our left-overs to enjoy when we had a chance to relax and regain some of our hunger. Seriously delicious food that is seriously well priced. Don’t bother with any other catering service! You will be thrilled with the taste and presentation of all of Café O’Lei’s dishes. Our guests are still fondly reminiscing about their wedding food- who does that?! The papaya salad is hands down the best thing I ate while in Hawaii.

Cafe O'Lei was fantastic! We set up a tasting ahead of time and they really treated us like royalty. The food was wonderful. It really was important to me that we source as much locally as possible for our menu and they featured so many local farmers! They were really great with our guests who had allergies. My sister is allergic to peanuts, tree-nuts and sesame, so it was very critical that the entire menu had none of that! They also were great providing gluten free meals to some of my guests as well. Everything was great!

We used Cafe O'Lei Catering for our wedding reception with 70 people. The food was so delicious and we received many comments from guests about it blowing other "wedding" food out of the water. We had pulled pork, marinated chicken and mac nut fish as our main dishes with several fresh and beautiful salads and sides. The passed appetizers were fun and filling. Presentation was beautiful and the provided more than enough food for us.

The catering team also provided special platted meals for two guests with dietary restrictions and were thoughtful enough to save the bride & groom a seperate platter of the passed appetizers, just in case we missed out while busy greeting our guests. That was really awesome and unexpected! I want to redo the day just so I can eat more!

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.
