My husband and I went for our 6th wedding anniversary. The ambiance was great. We sat in the “outdoor” area. A DJ was there that night. I had a Mai Tai and it was probably the best one I’ve ever had! We shared a sushi roll and it was absolutely delicious. Presentation of the food was great.
I had a ribeye steak with fingerling potatoes and I subbed for Brussel sprouts. My meal was just ok and it was lukewarm. The steak wasn’t seasoned much (I ended up asking for steak sauce) a little on the tough side, and the Brussel sprouts were a bit too crunchy.
My husband had the shrimp and chicken stir fry. He said that his food was hot and that it was really good.
Overall, we enjoyed each others company and that’s what it was about.

The waiter was short and Kurt. Long wait times which are understandable. My friends and I were traveling and we felt singled out. My friend only had her id on her mobile phone and wasn’t allowed it order drinks which was the reason we chose Kona. Not a great experience likely will not be back.

We're so sorry we weren't able to serve your friend. Illinois liquor laws require us to inspect a person's physical identification in order to lawfully serve alcohol to a guest, or risk penalties up to and including losing our liquor license. We hope you'll reconsider and join us again.

Friday night dinner on covered patio. Pleasant setting, but very, very noisy. Deafening roar combination of (1) other diners (lots of kids), (2) piped-in music at high volume, and (3) a DJ in the bar adjoining the patio. Service was slightly slow, but generally fine and quite knowledgeable and very attentive to food allergy issues. Ordered two rolls -- enough for two and delicious, if a bit too loosely prepared. Korean spice spare ribs were delish.

Went for a birthday dinner. Hector was our server/bartender and he went above and beyond. The menu prices have gotten STEEP over the last few year — i.e. $10 for a bowl of soup seems a bit aggressive. But overall, we had a wonderful experience, great service, and everything tasted lovely.

The server was excellent and the food was good. The hostess, however, was needlessly rude and snippy when we politely asked why we had to wait so long for a booth (the request was in our open table reservation) when a couple who came in after us was immediately given a booth. We started to leave, frankly. We like the place, but the hostess is a turn-off

Menu could have added extra warnings if the yogurt chicken is sooo hot like other restaurants do. Maybe extra hot pepper symbol??? It was tasty, but didn’t expect soooo spicy , just not used to spicy foods…..

The woman at the hostess counter (with the long blue nails) yelled at us to put our masks on when we entered. We had them in hand but she was kind of rude. We are mask wearers - a gentle reminder or please would have made me feel more welcome. This started out the evening on a negative note.

Waitress was very pleasant. Food was good but expensive.

We had to wait a few minutes in order to be seated, which was not a big deal. The hostess explained they were waiting for some tables to turn over and confirmed my cell phone number to text me when they had a table for us.
Once we sat, our server, Peter, walked us through specials and asked for drink orders.

I had a tuna steak special and it was incredible. We will definitely be back.
