Our waiter paid little to no attention to us, not bringing water until almost an hour after we had been seated and only bring utensils after being given our food. Along with that our food took an hour and a half to come.

The food was good. It came out at very different times. The music was sort of a funny dance track of ‘80’s music. It had been awhile since we had been there. I think it was quite a bit busier than our last visit. It was a fun dinner.

The food was awful -- the rolls were made terrible and fell apart - the presentation was bad and the waitress was so busy that she came off rude but she was just so busy - I will not go back - take some pride in your presentation - its too expensive not to.

Loved our experience here! The ambiance is beautiful and well put together. Our host instantly greeted us and was instantly accommodating. We sat at a table on the patio and our server was the sweetest girl! She was so personable and helped me decide between a couple drinks and dishes I had my eye on. The food was delicious and great conversation and laughs were had. Thanks Kona, we’ll definitely be back!

We came here for my birthday to enjoy the happy hour. Took the server 30 min before he checked in with us. The sushi was a joke had no taste more a nice presentation… it looked like it was thrown in a white plate and served to us… the other items didn’t have a taste either the sliders were cold and tasted like a McDonal cheeseburger … very disappointing…

The food was good. The service was good. But the music was so loud that we could barely hear each other talk. It was like disco music and way too loud ! When we commented to the management , we were dismissed and told that it was “vibe dining “. There’s too many good places to chose from. I will never go back to this restaurant

It has a great energy- very very loud music, so if you want to chat with the person you came with, probably not the best place. My table was vibrating from the music during Sunday Brunch- But it would be a fun place for a gathering!

This place is fantastic. Parking is a challenge but the do have valet. Greeting from the hosts makes you feel very welcome and you typically get seated within minutes. My server Hannah was on top of it all night, made great suggestions and made sure I was attended to even though I was an individual. Maggie (mgr) stopped by on a couple occasions to check up and I really appreciated chatting with her about my experience. I had the surf & turf (ribeye & macadamia coconut shrimp sushi roll) which was fantastic. Cooked to temp perfectly. I could go on but it's the same story. Hint: get the Dining Passbook (2 for 1 entrees) , it's worth it.

My friend and I ordered brunch. The potatoes were lukewarm and the coffee was bitter. Also, service was mediocre. We asked two servers for salt and pepper and I wanted a fresh cup of coffee but the server never came back to the table till we were finished. Disappointing.

The valet wasn’t complimentary as is it at most nicer restaurants in Denver which was surprising.

We got there about 10:30 no one was there. Our waitress was slower than anything. Asked for ketchup took forever, we ordered Eggs Benedict. The eggs were hard. We requested fresh eggs. Again the place was empty , maybe by now there were a few tables. The eggs took forever to receive, we were half done with our meal by the time the fresh eggs arrived.
Waitress was sweet but everything took soooo long to get.
I eat here all the time. Its one of my favorite places. I took my friend here for her birthday and we were both not too happy.
