The Aquarium’s annual evening event invites residents and visitors to enjoy semi-private dining in an enchanting setting, surrounded by marine life in the Living Reef exhibits. Couples and friends will enjoy a truly unique, one-of-a-kind Valentine’s experience unlike any other venue on Maui.

The Aquarium’s award-winning Seascape Māʻalaea Restaurant, lead by James Beard-nominated Chef Henry Tariga, will serve a four-course meal throughout the evening. Guests will enjoy a welcome glass of sparkling wine followed by Cupid’s Platter, an assortment of hamachi sashimi, shrimp cocktail, and stacked caprese.

The menu also includes a King lobster bisque, red and gold beet salad with micro greens and a choice of entrées that include a fresh catch & filet mignon duo, poached lobster with lemon thyme cream sauce, Madeira wine and Big Island mushroom chicken, or vegetable lei (vegetarian dish). All entrées are served with Chef’s choice of accompaniments.

The final course includes chocolate ganache truffle cake and chocolate-covered strawberries.  See the full menu here.
