I love The Plantation House Restaurant in Kapalua.  The views and relaxed open air atmosphere suits my shorts and golf shirt style.  Too bad on this visit the Chef's Tasting Menu ($105 w/Wine) did not suit my style or taste.  Where do I begin....from the Amuse Bouche to the Summer Fruit and Herb there was not much here that I liked however I did love the Fresh Bread with Honey Salted Butter.  This may have been the best course on the menu.  The Asparagus Vichyssoise was a puddle of Asparagus mush with a Curry Cake.  You cannot call this a Crab Cake when all you can taste is the Curry.  Why would you ruin the flavor of Crab with a bunch of Curry.  If I wanted a Curry Cake I would have ordered a Curry Cake and not the Crab Cake.  The Surfing Goat Cheese Dumpling was a mess on the plate.  Really could not tell what it was but I really liked the flavor.  When the waiter grated Truffles over the Dumplings I was so happy.  Even more happy with the flavors.  The Grilled New York Strip was three small pieces of steak that was not seasoned and tasted bland.  I ate only about one and a half pieces of the steak.  What really made this a bad meal for me was the dessert.  Lemongrass Basil Sorbet with Grape Soup.  Need I say more?  It was uneatable for me.
Did like the wine pairing as it numbed me from the pain of some of these courses.  Also liked the staff and service.
