    Karla is now a fav on our super servers list we have for our fav restaurants we frequent as Kona Grill has been on our list. She stood out. But in all we’ve been happy at every visit. Steaks, avocado egg roll (w an unexpected but really tasty sauce that’s a great fit), tuna or wave or bama rolls, chicken shrimp lettuce wraps, salmon, macadamia chick.. and their dessert list is really hard to choose from. I’ve had half of list so far, as I started bringing them home for later or as a sweet tooth breakfast next morn w coffee, and they are great size w great deliciousness.

    Right after placing our appetizer we immediately placed our main order and it took an hour and half to come out. Asked the waitress how much longer for our food and she didn’t even know. Once received she didn’t come back to ask how our meal was or if we needed anything additional, not even even water. Very disappointed. I don’t think we will be going back.

    I am so sorry that you experienced this during your last visit. I promise our standards on service will exceed your expectations during your next visit. There no excuse for the food to have taken that long, come in and see Mario, the GM, and I would love to take care of some appetizers during your next visit!! hope to see you soon.

    Good food, ambiance and service. The biggest challenge is the portion size and value for the money. The flavor combination was good, but I wouldn’t go back because there are other options more reasonably priced for the portion and value for the money. Let me be the first to say that I don’t mind spending money, but just over 30 dollars for a salad with 4 small pieces of chicken and a side vegetable seems a bit high, especially when it comes in a small appetizer sized bowl.

    Kona Grill - OakbrookResponded 4 days ago

    Mark, I am sorry that the quality and portion size did not meet your expectations. We pride ourselves on delivering value to our guests and I am sorry we fell short. I would like to invite you back and enjoy some free appetizers on Kona. Just ask for Mario the GM and I bet we can turn this into a 5 star experience. Hope to hear from you soon!!

    You can tell they were very short wait staff which I truly don’t hold against them. The server was nice enough. The food was just slightly above average. I ordered a oriental salad and I don’t like a lot of dressing but this had hardly any on it. (And it was a very small boring salad for $17)

    The restaurant was busy for the Mother’s Day dinner, and they made us wait for an hour after the reserved time to take the order. Then another hour for the food to start coming our way, which ended up to be an incorrect order. They gave my son a rare steak (instead of well done we asked). They did end up correcting all the orders, but we were hungry and wasted so much time in just getting our orders right. Overall not a pleasant experience and we will be not be returning there.

    We went for Mother's Day, had a 7pm reservation. We were seated within 5 minutes, and everything was off to a good start. Then we ordered our meals from the slimmed down Mother's Day menu, and half the items were no longer available. No prime rib, no soup, etc. This is unacceptable for a 7pm dinner reservation. It's not like we showed up at 9pm. Food we had was decent, but pricey. $18 for a half-filled plate of semi-crispy calamari? $21 for a sushi roll? Appetizers were pricey, but entrees were moderately priced. Our bill was overcharged by $19 with full-priced items when we added on $5 salads/soups to our entrees. Staff fixed the errors but the fact that I had to call out 3 errors was just negligent on their part. Overall, I would not go back, especially for a special occasion. I will spend my $350+ elsewhere for dinner.

    I just got my daughter back from college so I went out with her and her sisters. I made a reservation for a standard table. I got there eight minutes late for our reservation, and they told me that they were running behind with their reservations. When I asked how far behind, the hostess replied she really couldn’t comment. Weird. A high top table opened up, which we declined so we ended up waiting about 15 minutes total with the reservation. The waiter was pretty good, he came over fairly quickly took our drink water. The soft drinks came out right away but my drink took about 10 minutes. I had ordered an old-fashioned. The old fashioned was not made with a giant ice cube so I was a little disappointed. My children had sushi which they all enjoyed, but I am trying to stick to a vegan diet. They show that there are vegan options, but nothing is an entrée. I ended up having the nori salad, brussels sprouts, and the vegetarian roll. The Nori salad didn’t come out until after I had gotten my Brussels sprouts, and vegetarian roll. I tasted it, and immediately sent it back ‘cause it was awful and very late. The place had great music playing but it was really kind of hard to hear each other. (I couldn’t figure if I wanted to eat or get up and dance!) We did have fun, and the server was really nice, but it would be nice if they offered tofu with some of their options and tried a little harder to cater to a vegan diet.

    The service was wonderful! The food was overpriced! I can get a better sushi roll locally as well as a far superior steak. I did discover a new wine I liked. The sea bass was great, but everything else was unimpressive and a let down.

    Lunch party for seven people. My son and his in-laws. Smelly restaurant to start with. I pretended it was ok hoping the food would be better. Most of us ordered sea food, I ordered the sea bass which came very bland and the side dish of rice came clumpy and cold! Yes cold as if just taken out of the fridge The rest of the party was ok but nothing special I complained and the server said they’d get a new one. It took forever and by that time the rest of my food was cold and I ate it because I was hungry. She later came to the table and asked if I still wanted the fried rice since I finished the plate and I said no No excuses or sorry or refund or substitute for the inconvenience We still paid for everything and left. Won’t be returning to this place ever

    The food was delicious and our server was outstanding. However, the hostess was unpleasant; and this unfortunately, can set the tone for your experience. We had a reservation; but she didn't want to seat us in the dining room because a larger party was going to be coming to the restaurant in 2 hours. She reluctantly sat us in the dining room after my husband promised we would leave within 2 hours. It took away from the experience, as this was our anniversary celebration. We didn't order appetizers; just hurriedly ordered our meals. Declined ordering a second glass of wine, as well. We did leave within our allotted time frame. But in retrospect, we should have just left the restaurant after the rude manner in which we were treated and went elsewhere. For this reason, we probably won't return in the future.
