Service was slow. It took forever to get our drinks and food. Once our drinks came getting a refill wasn’t easy, the food was overpriced for the quality. Steak was over cooked and had a lot of in chewable parts. Server was nice though

No one at the door when you walk in so i had to wander around to get the host. Why make a reservation when no one comes here any more. Food was either under or over

I was pretty excited to have brunch at Kona Grill. Upon arriving, we were seated in between two tables with people. No social distancing at all. The table behind my date and I, seated a gentleman and a woman. The gentleman coughed the entire time. We felt like it was on our backs. Then our waiter, which was a make… this guys hygiene was super smelly. It made my days and I sick. We tried to be reasonable but it was way to bad while delivering our food to us and we couldn’t even enjoy our meal. The meal… oh my! The brunch menu in my opinion wasn’t very good. Only pork bacon or sausage was an available breakfast meat per the waiter , and my date had to basically eat eggs and potatoes with an English muffin that wasn’t fresh. We were kind of over it after the coughing and bad hygiene and we left our meals , paid and stopped at the front desk to voice our concerns. The young lady found it funny that we had to mention our waiters hygiene issue. She said everyone said he smelled. We were hoping she would make management aware. I’m not too sure! But we did mention the waiter and that were weren’t happy with our services, food, or having dine so closely in the morning when it wasn’t busy and nothing but open tables. We’ll never go back to Kona Grill, that’s for sure!

The food was hit or miss.. there were 6 of us so we got to try variety of items. 50/50 shot at getting something good. It’s very expensive for what you get. I personally wouldn’t go back.

Great staff, atmosphere, food, and drink.
The avocado egg rolls and shrimp tempura was great, but I didn't care for the pad Thai noodles it was too sweet and saucy. I also enjoyed the Margarita flight and red sangria.

The waiter Brittany was good as well.

While the server was very nice, he was unable to be as attentive as he could have been. There were only two servers at the time of our arrival. During the course of service, we placed 3 appetizer orders before our main entrees. While the first appetizer arrived quickly. We waited about 25 minutes before the other 1 arrive and then last appetizer arrived right before our entree. At this point we decided to just take our food to go. While the manager was very hospitable and comped the late arriving appetizers, we asked for one our entrees to go. The steak although cooked at the right temperature was no seasoned very well. I hope this isn’t the norm for this restaurant. The staff were all very nice but the food and timeliness needs some work. Nice atmosphere and great ambiance.

The food was not good. I ordered the eggs benedict with scrambled eggs instead of poached topped with crab. I had to ask if the eggs were made from powdered eggs, but was told they were real eggs. I still doubt that. The crab meat was cold. Needless to say I will not go back even after the coupon I was given since my food was unsatisfactory.

We were warned, after being seated and drinks/appetizers order taken, that the restaurant was experiencing computer issues that could delay our food. We had to put our orders in again as a result and that was fine. However, another party was seated after us and finished dining before us. We were very frustrated at this point, especially since we were celebrating a birthday. The manager did comp out appetizers because the wait time to eat seemed like an eon. The food was delicious as always, service was just bad this night.

First time visitor. Good service, location, ambience, etc. The food is not up to par though. Food was really salty and the drinks were watered down. Sweet items tasted like they were made with artificial sweetener.
Might go again but to just hang with friends but not specifically because of the food.
I am pretty sure there will be items that are very good, but not for me on this visit. Very disappointed in the desert.

We had a great experience at Kona. Our server was outstanding. He provided suggestions and was able to answer all of our questions. It’s family friendly and our server was great with my kids. The food was excellent, we all enjoyed our meals. My youngest loved his Bento box. Very cool place. Only one suggestion would be to turn down the music a bit. We had trouble hearing our server.

Food was ok. Miso soup tasted bland to some other Miso’s I’ve had. Service was a bit slow. Had to ask for the drink we ordered after 20 mins of not getting and finally waving down the server. Interior was basic. Music didn’t match the ambience of dinner. Was more of a club vibe with a cafeteria seating.

While the restaurant advertises food cook fresh to suit your needs this is not 100% true. Meats are pre-marinaded so specific certain diet restrictions cannot be met. Food was excellent! Service was okay. New employee who seemed overwhelmed was our server. Overall totally worth checking this place out as the food is excellent.

I expected an unbeat, lit atmosphere Saturday night but sadly disappointed. It was boring. The bar was quiet. Service was extremely slow - sat there for at least 15 minutes before someone came to take our drink order. And then waited over 10 minutes for those drinks to come. The appetizer and entree came at the same time. So we had all these plates on the tiny table we were sitting at. I was expecting a vibe and I was disappointed

Great selection of food for family of all ages—we dined there with our kids and 8-year-old grandson, and everyone has a terrific meal. We sat out on the patio, so there was plenty of open space around us. The staff write their masks diligently, and the servers were efficient and attentive.

The waiter we had was good and the food was good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was not professional . I walked in and a bunch of people was standing at the front desk they didn't say anything like Welcome or can I help you they just continued with their conversation and when I said excuse me me the hostess caught an attitude. That was the feel of the whole place employees walking around but not working and they did not want you to interrupt them. I would come back but for carryout only because the food was good and the carrot cake was awesome. The restaurant definitely need to having a training on professionalism and how to treat the paying customer.

Very loud, crowded, very long wait. Medium-sized portions for premium price. Service was good, but waitress was profusely apologetic for the wait, which was about an hour for our food (we didn't order apps) and then another 30 minutes for dessert. Yes, we were there on a Saturday (and on an Orioles game day), but the wait and noise made for a poor dining experience overall.

We sat on the patio- which is right on a main street but very well buffered by beautiful landscaping. The interior seemed a little sterile so we opted for outdoors. Our server was fantastic! Super friendly, fun, and knew how to upsell us on everything. The carrot cake was worth the splurge! Energetic playlist and fun atmosphere. Seems like it turns into a fun night-club later in the evening. The avocado egg rolls are a must! Great music playlist, too.
