Dress code for nicer Hawaii restaurants

Is there any restaurant on Maui, Big Island or Oahu that requires men to wear a suit & tie? We're staying at the FS on both Maui & the Big Island and the website says "resort casual" attire for their best dining room. I figure if anyplace were to require a suit & tie it would be the FS so I'm tempted not to pack a suit but I'd like to make sure before we leave and I still have a chance to put it in the garmet bag.

Thanks!

The only place I am aware of is La Mer at the Halekulani in Honolulu. They "suggest" jacket and tie. I stayed at the FS on the BI last year and the FS on Maui this year and none of the restaurants at either place required jacket and tie. I wore a jacket without a tie at their most formal restaurants but not everyone there did. Resort casual usually means a collared shirt, long pants and regular shoes (no sneakers). You won't need a jacket and tie.

That's wonderful Larry. Thanks for your reply so quickly. My feeling is, why pack a suit if you don't have to?

Don't pack a suit or tie! Granted we did not stay at the Four Seasons, but we did have some really nice and expensive dinners. NOBODY was wearing ties, except for the waiters at one restaurant we visited. Thankfully, Hawaii is ultra casual.

For men, an aloha shirt, slacks, and nice shoes are fine. Go subtle on the colors of the shirt. Crisp, inside-out fabric is the most formal and can be worn to the opera. My husband wore one to La Mer last month.
