9 of us came to celebrate 3 birthdays. So disappointing compared to the Lincolnshire location which was our favorite restaurant before it closed. Hour and a half wait for food. Waiter forgot some drinks, food quality was a huge disappointment and we are very familiar with the menu so we know how it should have been. Half of food went uneaten. Only half of our plates got cleared.

Our server Juan was outstanding. He was very helpful with suggesting choices it was my husband's first time dining here and I have only been one other time for Happy Hour a few years ago. Everything we ordered was very good and the Butter Cake was to die for.

This was my first time at Kona Grill and I had a wonderful experience. The waitress was very attentive and accommodating. We had a late arrival and her order was promptly taken. We loved sharing our rolls with everyone at the table. I would recommend this restaurant.

Food was great except the wait time was horrible. I was there on Christmas day and had to wait for the main course for over an hour. Even taking the order and receiving the appetizer took a while. Got there at 645pm and did not leave until almost 9 pm. I think they were understaffed but it made the experience not good despite the tasty entrees.

Not returning again on Christmas. It took over 20 minutes to receive our drinks from the bar and 45 minutes to get our appetizers. Even worse, it took 2 hours to receive our entrees from the time we ordered. Our server kept saying the kitchen was backed up but I think he didn’t put in our order right away and then other customers were getting bumped ahead of us because they were complaining and we were being too nice. When the food finally came out, it was a combination of overdone and barely warm. Not once did a manager stop by to check in with us or anyone in our area. In total we were there almost 2.5 hours and we were very disappointed with our first experience there.

I understand it was Christmas night, but the kitchen was clearly understaffed - the waiter did a good job managing our expectation by telling us from the first moment at the table the situation, however waiting over 1.5 hours for our meal was a bit longer than I would ever have expected.

We could not get out of there fast enough.

They did their best, but it was waaaaay too long to be there for a burger. I'd go back, just when the entire cook staff shows up for work.

Came in for Christmas with the family and this was a great choice. The kid menu alone is worth a trip - so many options!! Kona has something for everyone. I could get sushi, my husband a flatbread, my sister a mix of sushi and entree and my mom some pad Thai. The special was surf and turf too, so I think even people who don’t want Asian flare can enjoy. Service was fantastic and we weren’t rushed or waiting at any point.

I hosted a party of eight on Thursday, 12/19/19. We received exceptional service at both the bar and the table. Most everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. Our waiter did an excellent job of checking in on us. He was very skilled at providing friendly, efficient service.

We have dined at Kona Grill several times but this visit was by far superior that all the other visits. The reason? It was solely due to the phenomenal service of Katharina, our server. We learned it was her first day at Kona Grill but she was the absolutely best server I have ever had at any restaurant. She was knowledgeable in wines and skillful at the menu selection. This woman is a gem of a find for this establishment so hope they realize what a great talent they have and keep her!

Service was good waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back but I won’t have the sea bass. Waitress did offer to bring something else but I declined. They also comped my meal without asking.

Calamari = awesome
Shrimp & Lobster sushi roll = great
Stir Fry = awesome (spicy)
Sea bass = horrible. Had a couple of bites of the sea bass and almost puked in my mouth. Pork fried rice and baby bok choy sides were great.

Butter cake = awesome

Drinks
Jameson old fashioned = very good
Patio Bubbles = wife really enjoyed it.

We were looking for some place new & online the menu looked great. We were seated right away & our waitress was very courteous. We started with an appetizer (lettuce wrap) & we also inherited fruit flies that stayed throughout our entire dinner. Both of our main courses were "meh" at best. We both waited for extended periods for an extra drink. The dessert *carrot cake" was delicious & large enough to share. Will not be going back.

Excellent manager. No trouble accommodating our group of 23 ladies. food was good. I wish we had two servers. the only server we had was very good but she looked stressed out (still with a smile) making and handing out separate checks. Overall it was great experience. We'll be back.
