    My husband and I came here for dinner after checking into a nearby hotel after driving for hours. We walked about 10-15 minutes to get to it so that was very convenient. The food was excellent but somewhat pricey. But then again anywhere you go these days prices are extreme so I guess we all need to get used to that. I wasn’t happy with the fact that water was not refilled on a regular basis and I ran out of my one glass of water and had to drink my husband’s. Other than that, the service was good and the ambiance was very pleasant. Recommend coming here.

    Four us went to the hibachi - place was really busy but still plenty of spacing between folks so you weren't on top of each other. Food was really good and well prepared. Plan to go back again!

    This was our second time at Kon and again it did not disappoint! We got in early and went to the bar to grab a drink and were seated immediately after. We did not feel crowded even for New Years eve, the chef was excellent and very quick to the table and the food was amazing. We 100% recommend them to anyone!

    Habachi chef was very hurried and messy , when you go to a place like this you go for food and entertainment , he put way to much soy on stuff making it to salty , he stained my daughters and my dil shirts with sauce while applying it to meat on the grill and portions were small! We will not be back for special occasions again !

    Service was a little slow but not an issue. There were 4 of us for dinner. We ordered 3 sushi rolls and three entrees. We received only side dishes and 1 spoon to serve and eat our dinner. Bit strange

    Busy night, but food came quickly and was delicious. Inexpensive especially for the amount of food. We had a great time. Lots of options on the menu. We didn't do the hibachi, but it looked like fun.

    In my notes to reserve our table I requested the mascot for my kids bday. We got the bill and nothing came over. I even got up to ask the front hosts that my original plans were not met. I asked for a cake. Nothing. The waitress was then told before we got up to leave that it was my son's bday by somebody else in our party. It made it look like I did nothing to surprise my son when I did try two times. It was a dissapointing moment. We frequent this restaurant often. I will never go back. I felt ignored on purpose. Every table around us got the mascot and their cake. I just don't understand why my request was ignore twice!

    The woman at the front hostess stand set the tone for a very mediocre first time experience. The food was good, but our server disappeared frequently. making it very hard to even get a soy sauce for our sushi. They charged extra to substitute tofu for a shrimp dish which was astonishing to me as tofu and shrimp are not quite the same monetary amount. Even after leaving the restaurant, I still do not believe we were credited with our OpenTable points because she was so snippy.

    We ordered the jalapeño poppers and Vietnamese spring rolls for appetizers and both were pretty good. Our teriyaki dinners though were just ok. First off, we doubt the filet mignon was actually filet mignon. They did not have much flavor nor were they served with any teriyaki sauce. Our server had zero personality and I felt like she was annoyed having to wait on us. It was not a good dining experience overall, I wouldn’t recommend going here.
