This was my 2nd time at Kona and it was just as enjoyable as my first! Food was very good and the service was great! I was 30 minutes late for my reservation and my friend was there waiting. They got her seated and a beverage and they did not rush us through our meal once I arrived! I will absolsutely be going back again!

I go there often For the happy hour Appetizers. Time went inside for a meal. Even though it was an odd hour And the restaurant was almost empty Service was uneven. There was a mix up with your check And it seems to take forever to find a manager Who could fix it. I think I'll stick to the happy hour appetizers In the future.

This restaurant is unpredictable with service and food. This time, the server was no properly trained and made several mistakes. The food was no bad but not the best; was mediocre. I have been there other times with better results.

Great place to enjoy a great meal. Dark which makes for a nice romantic meal. Great service and great food. Bar area for either a after-work release or while waiting for a table.

Had a good time here. There was a group of six at our table and we were all pretty happy with all our meals. Some of us had sushi and some did not. We sat in the *outdoor* room with heaters and fireplace. After a short while it was very comfortable in there. Our server was good until it came time for dessert and coffee. She didn't bring our coffee until we had finished our dessert and I could not find her to remind her about it.

My friends and I have been here for lunch and cocktail hour - both are really enjoyable! The sushi is wonderful and we highly recommend it! Cocktail hour is afforable since the appetizers are cheaper. Very nicely furnished and great for a business lunch.

Great service, nice feel to the place.
If you are chopped salad person, don't bother, it is not chopped.
Chicken chili with corn bread croutons sounds fabulous but not great and the corn bread was not done all the way and soggy.
Chicken pot stickers were fabulous, Macadamia encrusted chicken breast will bring be back!
Many other items we want to try so we will be back!

My husband and I went for an early dinner on Valentines Day. We are both trying to eat healthy and there were a number of delicious healthy options on the menu. Our waitress was delightful and the evening very enjoyable. This was our third visit and won't be our last.

My wife and I decided to go here for an early Valentine's dinner with our 2 young sons. The food was great and they've really expanded their kid's menu. They even gave our boys Etch-a-sketch's to play with which was a HUGE hit. The kids loved their pizza and I have to say it was one of the better kid's pizzas I've tasted. The edamame and sushi were really good though their selection isn't quite as varied as other places. The atmosphere is nice - not too dark, not too bright - and for the most part the noise level wasn't bad. Overall an enjoyable dining experience and we would certainly go back and recommend to others.

When we walked in the door, the hostess was telling the waitress that her next table was a reservation for a birthday. We had our choice of seating and at first the server seemed quite accommodating. However, after checking on some items for us, she brought us our wine...& instead of taking our food order, she walked off & came back a few later--our menus were closed & we were starving! My husband's entree came out before he had time to even finish the sushi appetizer, creating a highly awkward moment. But the worst part was the fact that we went out for my birthday--& the server knew this!--& instead of ever even offering us dessert, at the end of the meal she simply dropped off the check. We actually were going to get dessert! Her loss.

Had an early dinner with another couple, we all ordered something different. Susi, Sea Bass, Chicken and steak and we all really enjoyed our food. Our waitress was amazing, just perfect. We sat in the bar area with a glowing fireplace. Had a really nice time.

Decent pick for dining in the western suburbs. Nice selection of westernized Pan-Asian offerings. Sushi is OK, seems fairly fresh. Food overall seems overly salty (excessive use of soy sauce - ha ha). Beautiful, hip interior, and the bar scene always seems busy and fun. Oh! One more thing which I thought was cool - the restaurant is very open to babies, even very little ones. They have a sling in which your infant carrier can sit right next to you at the table. Very handy.

The food was very good. It took a while to be seated due to the fact it was a Friday and busy. But found a seat in the bar and the waitress was very attentive. Once seated in dining room, the waiter was very knowledgable and attentive as well. Food was great. We will be going back.

I met up with some friends from high school that I hadn't seen in 10 years. It was great that we all got to eat something completely different. One friend had pizza while another had sushi. I had the thai noodles and they were good - not the best I've had, but still delicious. The restaurant is beautiful inside and they had lots of drinks to choose from. I would go back for a special occasion as they were a little pricey. For the 3 of us (none of us were drinking alcholic beverages) our tabe was about $60.

I met some friends on a Monday night. It was not very busy and it was really great for us to catch up with our lives. The salads were so fresh and delicious. The sushi was very fresh and also prepared well. On a scale of one to 10: a 10! This is my go to restaurant.

Excellent food. Very nice atmosphere. Upbeat music. Good service. Elegant but not stuffy. My husband and I get tired of all the kid friendly places (our kids are grown) and although kids are allowed here, we like that it is mostly respectful adults out enjoying the evening.

We had a nice meal at the Kona Grill before seeing a play at Drury Lane. The sushi was excellent, but the other items we ordered were just average. The parking lot in front of the restaurant was not adequate and we had to park in another section of the mall parking lot. Very inconvenient of a cold, blustery day.

We had a great experience the last time we ate here; this time we were sorely dissapointed. The calamari was greasy and barely warm, and one steak had to be sent back twice to be cooked properly. Not exactly having dinner "together" as I was nearly through with mine by the time my husband's was edible. The service was excellent, and they comped the one steak dinner so that definitely wins some points, but even my filet, which was cooked properly, was nothing special. Service gets an A+, the food a C- at best.
