Excellent waiter service. Appetizers were simply delicious. I had an oriental salad that was very tasty. However, it could have used more chicken. The drinks were also good. I would recommend this restaurant.

Fun is was flavorful and prepared well. We did have a bit of a wait for the food but the server and manager both made a point of stopping by to be sure we knew about the delay, apologized and checked a few times to be sure that our drinks were ok.

Great happy hour; service was good. Love that you can partake in happy hour any way in restaurant. Not a big fan of the menu selections. Would suggest you not include reserving high tops in the Open Table app since they just tell you they are open seating when you get there. You aren’t really reserving them, so if they aren’t available you’ll need to sit in dining room regardless.

Dined this past Sunday for the "happy hour" menu.
While the waitress was great, attentive, and apologetic, the kitchen production was terribly slow.
We waited at least a 20-30 minutes for each, as the waitress indicated repeatedly that the kitchen was backed up. This in spite of the fact that tables were only 30% occupied.
An extremely disappointing experience. Hope to experience better should I dine here again

Thank you for sharing your feedback and we sincerely apologize that your dining experience was not up to our usual acclaim. Such mishaps can certainly put a damper on the evening and, although we more than value your patience, a wait should not have reached such an extreme time. We would love to have you back and hopefully win two extra stars from you. Please private message us the best way to contact you so that we can personally follow up on your experience. Best, Michael

Service was fast and awesome. Sushi rolls were very good as were cocktails and saki.

Will try entrees on return visit. Be warned this place is LOUD, esp near or in the bar area. Los of young folks having a good time, but don't let that keep you away.

Our food tasted very fresh, and presentation was quite nice

9 of us came to celebrate 3 birthdays. So disappointing compared to the Lincolnshire location which was our favorite restaurant before it closed. Hour and a half wait for food. Waiter forgot some drinks, food quality was a huge disappointment and we are very familiar with the menu so we know how it should have been. Half of food went uneaten. Only half of our plates got cleared.

Food was great except the wait time was horrible. I was there on Christmas day and had to wait for the main course for over an hour. Even taking the order and receiving the appetizer took a while. Got there at 645pm and did not leave until almost 9 pm. I think they were understaffed but it made the experience not good despite the tasty entrees.

Not returning again on Christmas. It took over 20 minutes to receive our drinks from the bar and 45 minutes to get our appetizers. Even worse, it took 2 hours to receive our entrees from the time we ordered. Our server kept saying the kitchen was backed up but I think he didn’t put in our order right away and then other customers were getting bumped ahead of us because they were complaining and we were being too nice. When the food finally came out, it was a combination of overdone and barely warm. Not once did a manager stop by to check in with us or anyone in our area. In total we were there almost 2.5 hours and we were very disappointed with our first experience there.

I understand it was Christmas night, but the kitchen was clearly understaffed - the waiter did a good job managing our expectation by telling us from the first moment at the table the situation, however waiting over 1.5 hours for our meal was a bit longer than I would ever have expected.

We could not get out of there fast enough.

They did their best, but it was waaaaay too long to be there for a burger. I'd go back, just when the entire cook staff shows up for work.

Came in for Christmas with the family and this was a great choice. The kid menu alone is worth a trip - so many options!! Kona has something for everyone. I could get sushi, my husband a flatbread, my sister a mix of sushi and entree and my mom some pad Thai. The special was surf and turf too, so I think even people who don’t want Asian flare can enjoy. Service was fantastic and we weren’t rushed or waiting at any point.
