Great place! I originally went for the sushi but I’m glad I also ordered steak. The steak and potatoes were so good. Very juicy and tender. The sushi I was not a big fan of but it wasn’t horrible. Drinks were good and the waitress was very attentive. Will revisit in the future.

This was my first time at this location.
At first they didn’t honor my “outdoor” reservation and tried to tell me I didn’t book an outdoor reservation. I booked “outdoor” and chose this restaurant due to covid safety. After having many words with the hostess, and showing her my “outdoor” reservation, she told me it would take 30 mins to get an outdoor seat for us. After telling my partner I was ready to go elsewhere because I don’t eat indoors during covid, the hostess comes and says and “outdoor” seat is now open. (It had been 3 mins). They take us to another section of the indoor restaurant. I said, “wait this isn’t outdoor?” They said yes it’s not at the moment but this is our patio, it’s just fully enclosed today. How in the world is this “outdoor” seating? I drove all the way from the west loop for this reservation to be outdoor during this pandemic, to just be enormously disappointed. We left and went to a wonderful restaurant up the road with true outdoor seating available.

I want to warn others, don’t choose this place if you want “outdoor” seating during this covid pandemic.

We enjoyed ourselves for a date night. Service, drinks, and food were wonderful. Do yourself a favor and indulge in their butter cake dessert. It is very much worth it. They best dessert I have had in a long time!

who knew brunch could be this good? We selected Kona Grill so we could have Sushi, Breakfast and sandwiches ALL on Sunday at lunch. We ended up enjoying a fabulous brunch. The brunch potatoes should be illegal. Eggs benedict perfectly prepared as were the eggs, bacon, and everything. Service was superb.

The Tanqueray and tonics were not made with Tanqueray, and were sent back and corrected. The filet was small and chewy. All other meals, stir fry, sushi, and Chilean Bass were very good. Was hard to hear our waitress as the noise level was high, but we could hear each other.

I reserved a high top table for four and when we arrived, on time, they told us no high top tables available.
Then they sat us right next to the waitress station.
The server rarely checked on us.
We all ordered steak, three filets and one ribeye. They were subpar and flavorless.
I used to go there quite a bit but hadn’t been there for about a year. It is lousy now.

Unfortunately our experience was colored by hair being in our food. While it was replaced, it made it difficult to continue eating, so we never made it past appetizers and drinks. We sadly had lost our appetite for dinner.

Experience was for the most part great as usual however I ordered an old fashioned drink and what I got wasn’t an old fashioned. (It actually tasted like the bartender put dry vermouth in it). I should’ve sent it back but didn’t. Just didn’t finish it.

On Sunday, 10/10/21, I booked the 10pm last reservation for a late night drink & appetizers and instead was told rudely that they were closing up already and couldn’t serve me (even though they confirmed my reservation time!)

The bartender told me to go across the way to Yardhouse bc she had just cleaned up. So we left & Yardhouse was closed, she was wrong!

Responded on October 13, 2021

Our sincerest apologies! We do take our last reservation at our closing time. On Sundays that is 10pm. Monday through Saturday, we are open one hour later and close to 11pm. But this is not the experience we want for our guests. Please reach out to Julie Novak GM at 630.515.8395, so we can make this right.

From beginning to end, Kona Grill in Oak Brook, was awesome! We arrived a bit early for our reservation & were told we would have to wait until closer to our reso time. One of the host noticed we had two small children and offered us a different table. He was friendly & super accommodating. What made our experience even better was our server, Mike! It has been a long time since we have had such genuinely energetic server who not only was knowledgeable about the menu but he literally did not miss a step! Check backs after every table drop, suggestions, and Mike was engaging! The food was also very good but Mike just took it to the next level!! Thanks Mike!! You made our entire weekend!

I’ve been here a number of times and love the atmosphere. It’s always lots of customers on a Friday or Saturday night. They play music and the bar is always occupied. The food is delicious. The only downside which isn’t even bad if you’re prepared is that service can be slow…probably because they’re short staffed post covid. But dinner for 3 of us was like 2 hours. But definitely worth it and plan to continue going back!

We used to love Kona Grill but for some reason they must blast the music way too loud. No one in our group is hard of hearing and we were literally screaming at each other. We asked for the music to be turned down and we think they did ever so slightly but not enough. The sushi was very good, as usual. the macadamia chicken was not up to par. But our waitress was probably one of the most pleasant helpful waitresses I have had in any establishment!! I wish I remembered her name.

Would not let us into the outdoor patio without masks. Did not provide masks, or provide some kind of alternative. Manager ran away to the back to let a younger girl handle the situation. I dine here at least once or twice weekly and order food often. I can usually look past the bad service and other ongoing issues with this place because they are open late but this was too much. It is not like we were refusing to wear masks to the table. We both were coming from other events and did not have any. I have not seen any restaurant or any business for that matter not providing masks as a courtesy to those who need them. They are clearly not in need of business. I will not be returning.
