Kona Grill - Austin Ratings and Reviews
The server seemed very green. Brought iced tea instead of coke and gluten free soy instead of regular. Then brought our bill but it wasn’t showing what we owed and took forever to flag him down. The sushi was mediocre at best and I ordered the restaurant specialties. My husband enjoyed his macadamia nut chicken. Overall, not worth the price.
Went with a group of friends to try the happy hour drinks and apps. There really isn't anything bad about this location. Service was great but food was okay. I've had better sushi is all I'm saying. This would be the perfect place to take someone who is new to the sushi scene.
I Made reservations for New Year’s eve when I got to the counter no one knew of my reservation even though I showed them my confirmation number from round table no one acted like they care they were not even aware of a New Year’s eve reservation however I chose to stay and order drinks and food we were overlooked and when I say we I met my guest and I were overload and served nasty cocktails out of dirty cups I walked out and did not pay for anything I would never pay for this kind of service and what is the point of making a reservation for Kona Grill employees to not even recognize and acknowledge it. Kona grill sent me the email asking for me to reserve and bring in the nye with them. I’ll come the staff was not aware of that I was told that they close at 11 PM and there was no such thing going on
We are sushi snobs- and this was a good place! Greeted by friendly host, decor, vibe, energy were all very inviting. A full bar is available if your table isn’t ready. We had basic appetizers of potstickers and miso soup. The rolls were excellent, and my hamachi sashimi was very nice. I didn’t give 5 stars because the portion was smaller than the norm. Otherwise the food and ambience was great- a bit pricey- $230 for four people (including cocktails). Would definitely go again and recommend.
Always used to get the Chicken pesto pasta. Many times in fact over the years...so now they remove from menu. I get the cheeseburger sliders. Ask for well done. One was perfect. One was extremely red barely cooked......service was slow yet they were not overly busy
They did make good on the burger and the sushi enjoyed by my spouse was good
I was really pleased with Kona Grill at the Domain, in Austin. The food was very fresh, we had sushi. The atmosphere was nice. It was a little bit noisy.. but not too bad. Service was great. We got seated fast. I made a reservation but we didn't need it. It was the evening before Thanksgiving, so it probably is more crowded on a different day. Parking can be a little challenging at the Domain. I didn't have an issue though. Great evening. Loved the Picasso Roll.
Our waiter was amazing, the food was great, first time eating at Kona but probably my last time due to poor management and poor bartender knowledge. I arrived with two friends and sat by the bar, me and my friends noticed a clearly drunk gentleman staring at my friends, other ladies and myself. A table next to us complained about the gentlemen but no quick action was taken. Then the gentleman approached our table and would not leave until finally told to leave by my friend. We told our waiter and he quickly apologized and said the manager was taking care of it but we looked and he was just standing in the kitchen. Our waiter left and the gentleman approached us again and was persistently asking if he can buy us drinks, it took my friend going up to the manager herself to get the man kicked out.
The bartenders should have realized the man was clearly intoxicated and not served him.
The manager should have responded as soon as the first table complained.
Other than that great food.
We really like the food at Kona but this is the 3rd visit in a row where it took over 20 minutes to get our food and then we didn’t get all of it at once and had to wait longer to get all of it. It’s unfortunate that the service is not good when we really like everything else about the restaurant
We had a party of 8 for a co-worker's birthday during lunch. The restaurant wasn't busy. All of our food was brought out except the bday person's (seared tuna). When I inquired with the waitress, she said she didn't have enough hands and was going back to grab it. But, we still waited a bit and then the manager came up to us and said it would be out shortly, which means it wasn't ready. The waitress didn't refill any sodas and only refilled my water once. We all ordered dessert and all had empty drinks before and during the entire dessert round. The food was delicious, but we had the misfortunate of a pretty bad server.
it was my first time my boyfriend and i dined at Kona Grill and absolutely loved it! we loved the food and the atmosphere. started w an appetizer-calamari, drank moscato, then had sushi rolls, and ended w the butter cake. great portions. cant wait to come back.
We are so pleasantly pleased by our dining experience at Kona Grill. Everything from A-Z was superb!The food was excellent the service was Exceptional and the ambiance was perfect! Our server ALAN is a natural people person who knows how to please his customers. He is very attentive and endearing. The chicken pot stickers are the best we've ever had and the 12 oz. Burger my husband polished off was satisfying! We will return to Kona Grill again!
The food was great, but the service was so slow! Took forever to get our drinks. Took almost an hour just to get our bill. Maybe they were understaffed for the crowd that evening and hopefully our experience is not typical. It was painfully slow!
Food did not come out as ordered. Husband ordered a burger medium and it came out rare. Then they took it back and it still wasn't right but he ate it anyways as I was already finished with my meal before his came back out. They didn't even apologize for his food coming out was after I was finished eating mine. The knats are bad in there as well.
Alan, The associate manager was a Star!
Food was as great as I remember last time I was there! So impressed w/ their Corporate Creativity to have a Sushi donation fundraiser for their displaced Houston employees from Hurricane Harvey. I even tried their Sushi Lol-i-pops , which were Great too.
We celebrated a family birthday. The children and teens were happy with the menu as well as the adults. The only thing I wished for was more special recognition for the birthday boy from the resturant, such as a free desert or special drink.
I would go back just for the food. The meal was delicious.
Will never go back. I've been plenty of times for happy hour and it was fine. This time was for dinner with friends. They've always had a wine fly problem and this time was no different. That, plus poor service, mediocre food, and no toilet paper on either of the two rolls in the stall cemented my poor review. It took forever to get drinks-cocktails came faster than the beer ???? And when I ordered a glass of conundrum without realizing they offer it in white and red, the server didn't bother to clarify and brought me red. Which was not what I wanted. So now I wait ten more minutes for the right drink. And I'm sorry but if you run a decent establishment, you restock the TP regularly. The place was packed and I can't understand why. Do not bother.
We went to Kona Grill for dinner and some drinks. The hostess was very friendly and welcoming. It took a while for our waitress to come over. I thought this was partly because our entire party was not there yet. However, I was wrong - it was because our waitress was pretty neglectful of our table most of the night. In fact, we ran out of water and waited an extremely long time before we were able to flag her down and give us refills. It was extremely annoying. On the other hand, our food was delicious. If our experience dealt only with the food, it would have been near perfect. Please train your staff on how to check on tables periodically, and keep up the work with the delicious food.
Nice restaurant. We got there around 16.30, right in the middle of staff change. Food was good, service was pretty slow, should not have to wait 10 mins for refills, sauces etc... There were so many non working employees just standing around and chit chatting. Food was nice but always waiting for simple stuff made the experience an okay one!
We started out with the potstickers and taco trio. The potstickers were very dry and crumbly. It could have used more flavor and binding in the mixture, the dipping sauce was not very tasty. The trio taco was ok. Our entrees were the seared tuna which was probably the best out of the three entries, jambalaya, soft shell crab roll and pork sliders. Very pricey for the food you get and not a very creative menu that wowed us. Unfortunately, we invited friends to your restaurant since we were in the area. It was quite embarrassing almost $200 later
We had never visited Kona Grill before, but the staff was so attentive, and the food so good, I'm sure we'll be back many times.
Mikel waited on our table, and he made the experience fantastic. He was very charming, extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and quick to provide recommendations. Super nice guy overall!
