    Went for brunch. Great service! Ordered the Macadamia Nut French Toast. Menu said to was also to come mint. No Macadamia nuts or mint to be found. It was just 5 small rounds of average French toast with raspberries. Friend ordered the Croque Madame. She said it very salty. Coffee was great.

    The rolls were good. We had two chicken dishes and the chicken with both was hard and over cooked, but we had waited over an hour for our food and had to leave within 20 minutes to pick up a kid so we didn’t have time to complain and have it fixed. The place was way too noisy to have a good conversation.

    It was way too loud; I understand what they’re trying to do with the DJ, but it is way too loud when you can’t have a decent conversation with the person next to you. And, my friend complained the whole time that it was way too cold; I think that we were right under the vent.

    I chose this restaurant because they had a special date night experience and my daughter just got engaged so I sent the happy couple there for the “date night” experience and included a bottle of wine. They got there and were handed a regular menu and not told about the experience at all. I had even put that this was an engagement dinner on the special instructions. Just dissatisfied that they weren’t given the special date night I had ordered for them on this ap. I even called the restaurant to let them know they’re coming and told them i ordered the date night special for them and to see if I could leave a credit card and they told me to purchase a gift card online, so I thought they’d be all good! Very disappointing.

    We walked out before ordering. The ambiance was off, why was only the front 1/3rd of the establishment being used? The waiter was creepy, how do you greasy lay over that little hair on a bald head? Waited a long time for a waitress and had already decided to leave. Had you cleaned up at all from the night before? Shut off the lights if you aren’t cleaning!

    Had lunch with friends, we haven’t been to Kona is awhile. Food was fine, it was pretty quiet. Our waitress seemed like she was having an off day. Just not good service… our food was spicy and we had zero water. Took forever to get a refill. Then she just had an attitude with one of my friends. It felt like she was too busy for us but there was one other table she was hosting.

    Sushi is overpriced. Much better places in the area for 1/2 the price. A bowl of Miso soup is $12$!!!! Used to enjoy Kona - not at these prices not worth it. Interior is dated and needs maintenance.

    The food and service were great, but this restaurant is very tired and worn. Seating has holes in it, a window in the door to the men’s room is broken, partitions around booths are still up and are filthy. Not sure I’d go back until they freshen it up a bit. Makes me concerned about how the kitchen looks.

    Had reservation as you know. Waited 40 minutes to get drink orders, once ordered, had to go ask where our drinks were, all why waiting for our food order to be taken. Finally got food and drinks and just really couldn’t pin down who our waiter even was. After waiting, got up to see if we could get our bill. The food was decent. Our meals and drink were free.

    My wife and I came for a date night and were pleasantly surprised. Everything was prepared beautifully and was fresh. The staff was excellent and professional. However, if you have audio sensory issues you may want somewhere a little quieter. They had a club mix going that was turned a little high up for my wife. I enjoyed everything though. Service, drinks, and food was perfect.

    I had a 7:30 reservation but wasn’t sat until 8. We were sat at the bar which was very crowded and noisy and was told we would need to wait an additional 20 minutes for the dining room. We decided to leave and go to a different restaurant at that point. Don’t allow reservations if you don’t have the space.

    We made a reservation and when we showed up the host forgot about us and was seating parties that just walked in before us. We waited for over 10 minutes when they originally told us 5. We then finally got sat and waiting again over 15 minutes for our drinks and appetizers. Our server was great and super understanding when we decided to get our tab and leave before ordering food.
