Our waiter was awesome. However, when my friend’s dish came the chicken was still raw inside. 🤢 they had to take it back. And my friend had to wait longer for her food..i shared my food with her until hers arrived. No manager or supervisor came to us to talk about the issue. Usually at other places we go to, if something like that happens, a manager usually comes. I lovd Kona..i was the one who
Invited my friend because she had never been. I dont think that was a good experience for her first time.

Loved the food. We went during happy hour and they have amazing drink specials and food specials! Love using Open Table!!! I made the reservation 1 hour before and when my group of 4 arrived there was a 45 minute wait but they had our reservation and we walked right in! Love using Open Table and Loved Kona Grill. It was a Friday evening and they have a DJ which really livens the mood. Our waitress was also amazing. She was very quick with our drinks and food and extremely attentive and efficient.

We were sat at our table and no one helped us for some time. We waited for a server, but no one came in the 10-15 minutes we were at our table so we decided to leave. The tables and booths feel sticky and dirty, as does the floor. I would not say that the restaurant feels very clean. I’m glad nobody served us just because of the way the booth felt and the restaurant (at least the bar side) looked.

The menu was much more expensive then the last time I dine at Kona. 3 salad and sushi and one salad, two alcoholic drinks for $150.00. Food was good. Server was good. There was a DJ in the dining area and the music was too loud. It was difficult to communicate with our server and with each other at our table.

We showed up and sat us with a waitress that had just sat a 10plus party and took her a while to get our drinks, poor girl also had to worry about the party and us I felt that our food took a while while other parties sat after us ate before us, we had to call a manager to get drink refills the beer we got was hot, they had a Dj going which was good but too loud

The waiter was great for the amount of tables he was waiting. My wife and I were passed by the hostess three times before we were acknowledged as being there. COVID-19 is not an excuse to not do your job as a hostess, it’s very much easier than being a waiter/waitress or chef/line cook. My point, everyone besides the hostess did an amazing job for the situation they were placed in. The food is an amazing fusion that I’m a huge fan of.

We drove all the way from Las Cruces for my husband’s birthday to Kona Grill. The menu was unique and creative but the food that came out was hit or miss. Sashimi tasted fresh and steak was good but custom roll was more rice than filling. The waitress didn’t know anything about the menu and unfamiliar with the menu. Sea Bass was good until about half way through, it tasted like some type of cleaning solution. Very disappointing experience.

My husband and i love this place. Im glad we made a reservation as they were very busy on Friday night. I also love the fact that they take social distancing seriously and making sure all patrons are safely distanced from each other. The food is always amazing. I always order the same thing. I was able to convince my husband to try a different sushi roll. The calamari is superb. Just noticed that the prices had gone up quite a bit. Overall, it was a great dinner. Been a while since we had been out and this experience was a nice treat.

We live in Las Cruces, NM and our state has only carryout or takeaway service for all restaurants, so we took our business to the few restaurants in nearby El Paso geared up for sit-down down dining. The sushi rolls, spicy tuna, smoked salmon, and vegetarian, were adequate. Miso soup and Oriental salad were also satisfactory. Service was was very uneven and could be excused in part by serving protocols due to reduction in sushi accoutrements, like soy sauce bring reduced to packets versus bottles. That said, we had to ask the two servers for the soy sauce. The highlight of our visit was the sake flight with 60 ml samples of 3 sakes. While we we enjoyed our dining out experience, we'll not be returning to this restaurant.
