Ok I have eaten at a lot of nice restaurants in the past and they had some nice touches here but overall I do not think that this place was worth the price.
The food was decent not outstanding. The pricing was extravagant (was trying to decide if they were so high due to being in hawaii or due to being an overinflated uppity joint?) I did not come across anything that marked itself as high end as The Beach House, but I just felt that they didnt deliver.
The service was good. The view was great (but sunset was before 5:30). The photographer doing photos asked if we wanted sunset photos when there was barely any light in the sky at all. People without reservations got better tables than we did even though we showed up early to see the sunset and asked to be seated early, but werent! GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...
They had some nice touches with cards for birthdays and anniversary's signed by most of the staff...
I will agree that they had great salt crusted sourdough bread. But we had 3 main courses and a child course and not one of them was awesome or delightful. I dont know why but I have much much better in much cheaper less snooty environs. If you want a view and are able to be there before or during the sunset its very beautiful.
So upgrade the chef's and I think that this place would be much much better. Keep your baker though! so as the status says... Meh. I've experienced better.

I've been here twice and the ambiance and food are both amazing. The second time I brought my two children (under 5) and they loved it too. Besides the delicious food and beautiful vantage point from the restaurant, they have an amazing green lawn in front bordering the ocean. So fun for sunset picture taking and for letting the kids run around while you enjoy a beautiful dinner.Recommended for:Family Travelers

Right next door to our condo. We watch sunsets here just about every night. Delicious Pacific Rim cuisine now open for lunch as well as dinner. This beach was rated best snorkeling on Kauai by Sunset magazine. We see more fish here than we do on the boat tours.

Gorgeous Views! Very beautiful and romantic setting. Make sure you make advanced reservations, and the earlier the better. The best time to enjoy the sunset and front row tables is to arrive when they open. First come first serve. The food is a Pacific Rim creative combination, but it is on the pricier side. The Panko crusted Calamari is so yummy! They also have a separate Vegan and Gluten free menu, just ask your server. Enjoy!!Recommended for:Vegetarian

Some of the most Beautiful Sunsets in the World!! Excellent place to have dinner and catch your last Kauai Sunset prior to catching that late flight out of Lihue.
Also some of the Best Snorkeling in the Poipu area is located just outside the restaurant!!

If you like sunsets while enjoying a special dinner, you want to make reservations at the Beach House. It has been rated one of the best restaurants on Kauai for many years. Ask for a table by the window so you can enjoy the view of the ocean and the sunset while dining on fresh fish and other delicious food.

The best place on the island for a sunset dinner if you're celebrating something special. My husband and I decided to spend our last night on our honeymoon at The Beach House. Very important: make reservations! This is a popular spot for tourists and it's always packed, especially for dinner at sunset. I was a little ticked off because I did call way in advance for a reservation and I requested to have a window seat right along the water and the girl who took my reservation sounded like she could make it happen. Granted it's hard to predict how many people come in for dinner and request those spots and also how long they take to eat, so that is understandable. However, I came in and saw tables with "Reserved" signs so I know it can be done, and yet that wasn't the case for me. The hostess that was there that day was very helpful and got us the closest table she could to the water with a good view of the sunset, decent seats, but still, it was a little annoying you know if you called in advance and made a request and was told a good chance it could happen and then came and saw "Reserved" signs implying that they can do it and yet didn't go above and beyond to do it for you. Sunset for that night was around 7pm so if you come here for dinner I suggest making a reservation for a dinner slot an hour before sunset like at 6pm, you'll probably have the best odds for the open air window tables. Best seats in the house! For that you lose a few stars sorry.
Aside from that, we had an incredible time. Food and service made up for that little hiccup. You're free to come and go out on the water and watch the sunset set which I thought was really cool of them to let you do, no rush on dinner. We ordered drinks and the waiter was so nice to come get us after the sunset when he was afraid our drinks were melting, he wanted us to have the full effect of our honeycomb drink. So sweet. All our waiters were friendly, chatting with us in between which I thought made the experience more personable. Dinner was well worth every penny, I know some have commented that it's overpriced. I disagree, average prices for what you're getting. It's not huge portions, but it's just enough and it's fresh. And c'mon, it's expensive because it's a tourist area, you are really paying for the amazing view. On the average you'll spend $100 for a couple with drinks, I think that's fair. Thank you Yelpers, I listened to you and ordered the Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi...can you say yum?!? So delicious, I love the sweet and savory sauce that covered the fish. The hubby's entree he said was average, should have listened to Yelpers and gotten the Wasabe Snapper! The Ono fish and grilled prawns were very fresh, but very ordinary. Our fried calamari appetizer was a hit with it's spicy guava cocktail dipping sauce though!
The sunset was gorgeous, I didn't want to leave. Definitely come here if you're visiting the island!
