If you’ve never tried a Wolfgang Puck restaurant, you’ll find the perfect opportunity at Spago. This Wailea favorite serves a blend of sophisticated California dishes that incorporate several classic Hawaiian ingredients and cooking techniques. Executive chef Peleg Miron regularly receives praise for his compelling creations, which integrate several cultural traditions to form culinary concepts that are as fresh as the ingredients they feature.
Conveniently located in the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Spago provides a spectacular gastronomic experience for hotel guests. Even if you’re staying offsite, however, this remarkable restaurant is worth visiting. The view from your table is absolutely stunning, particularly if you’re lucky enough to arrive just as the sunset is beginning. You might even enjoy a bit of whale watching as you dine.
No matter where you’re seated, you will appreciate the upscale interior design, which draws inspiration from contemporary Asian aesthetics. This forms the perfect backdrop for an upscale meal, which is just as attractive as the restaurant’s design. Attention to detail is immediately evident in the plating — but that won’t stop you from digging in, as the scents are downright enticing.
Don’t forget to order a glass of wine to sip as you await your dinner. The selection at Spago is amazing, making perfect pairings possible regardless of which starters or entrees you ultimately order. Nothing accompanies an upscale dining experience quite like fine wine and a breathtaking view.
A few of our menu items include the following:
Hawaiian Seafood Risotto
Go beyond your ‘typical’ risotto with a Hawaiian version that incorporates prawns and a local fish known as Ono. Add Spanish olive oil, and the result is a satisfying risotto that is categorized as a starter but could suffice as a small meal.
Treat yourself to the chef’s choice of sushi, which is always locally sourced, and therefore, incredibly fresh. Shiso and pickled ginger are incorporated, granting the platter a distinctive blend of flavors. The hamachi sashimi is also worth ordering if you’re on the hunt for a memorable starter.
Pineapple Coconut Red Curry
If you enjoy seafood curry, you’ll adore everything about the pineapple coconut version served at Spago. This superb dish includes prawns, mahi-mahi, and delicious Thai basil. Curry-loving guests are so fond of this dish, many report feeling tempted to lick the bowl. Don’t worry if you typically struggle with spice — adjustments can be made to accommodate your individual tolerance.
Whole Rack of Colorado Lamb
Meant to be shared, this dish should appeal to anyone with a desire for juicy meat — but open-minded enough to appreciate an unexpected twist. Accompanied by Hunan eggplant and flavorful mint, the lamb is served “Chinois” style but should satisfy both adventurous and picky eaters.
Seared Rare Ahi Tuna
One of the most frequently mentioned dishes served at Spago, this ahi tuna is melt-in-your-mouth good. It’s seared and seasoned to perfection — and it comes with black garlic puree and pea tendrils.
Treat yourself to a special occasion at Spago, where you’ll discover memorable dishes that are as exquisite as the restaurant’s iconic sunset view. Your evening at Spago will feel downright magical, so prepare for a dining experience to remember.
-Self-parking is limited at the Four Seasons, so you’d be wise to take advantage of the complimentary valet if you don’t plan on staying at the resort.
-Reservations are strongly recommended, particularly if you intend to visit during the height of tourist season or during peak dinner hours. Ideally, reservations will be made several days in advance, as a last-minute approach may leave you seated at the bar.
-While this restaurant’s upscale atmosphere may give the impression of an adult-oriented establishment, many families with children visit. The children’s menu includes a three-course selection complete with both options for picky and adventurous kids.
