My husband and I took the kids out for sushi. My kids loved the bento box with the orange bear. I’ve never seen them eat all of their food so fast. My husband had the shrimp stir fry and I had the combo. Both were delicious and the portion sizes were perfect.

Completely disappointing. We had asked for a different table initially and we were told that the other tables were reserved for people with reservations. We had a reservation!!! WTF?? Plenty of empty tables, but the restaurant chose to sit people
Very close together. Other than that the food wast good either. It was served luke warm from the kitchen and it was very bland. Very expensive for what you got. Overall a poor experience. We will not be going back.

We had a 5:15 pm dinner reservation and didn’t receive our food until 1:30 later! Ridiculous and not acceptable. It was Christmas Day and many customers were waiting a long time for their food too. The reason is because the kitchen was spending more time preparing meals for carry out than for the customers in the restaurant. Our waiter was great, but management’s priorities are a serious problem.

We booked a party of 4 on Christmas at 4pm. We were seated fairly quickly and greeted promptly as well. Specialty cocktails were just okay. The table really enjoyed the avocado egg rolls appetizer. My filet was over cooked and not very tender. My mom said the prime rib was good and my dad said the same about his ribeye. Cheeseburger for my daughter was definitely not worth $21. Overall the service was great but I don’t feel the quality of food/drinks was what it should be for the price.

Open fo Xmas. Went for a 2 pm reservation. Food arrived at 3:30. Very nice waitress but very understaffed. Food arrived cold. Afraid to think how lonf dessert and coffee would have taken. We just ate and left. Never had a bad experience here before. Manager explained that understaffed in kitchen and on floor. Considering this is an expensive restaurant and people want value for their $, felt it was truly a no win situation for everyone.

I took my family there for Christmas Eve dinner. We were excited since they had a special Christmas Eve menu. Unfortunately everything we ordered from appetizers to Mains came out warm (at best) to cold. They had a DJ playing , and instead of playing Christmas music, he was playing everything but. I’m sure I’ll probably be back because since overall the food is usually pretty good, but definitely not for special occasions.

We had dinner at Kona Grill on Christmas Eve. We had made reservations for four at a high top. The hostess seated us at a high top....but that was about it. We received no menus, no waitress stopped by for 20 minutes and we were not even offered water or drinks. We were actually on our phones looking for a different restaurant. However, at that moment a waitress did come by and the rest as they say was "history". The food was Excellent and the service improved 100%. I think the "up front" staff may need to be re-trained
