Always a safe bet as menu and staff never disappoint. We were treated like royalty and on Wednesday its Half Price bottles of wine and what could be wrong with that. We stayed with sushi and all choices were excellent. Kona does food and drink well and always fun. Server Talia took very good care of us.
My first visit. It was awesome. Service was great and good was great.
The food was good.
Sushi and drinks were fun. Great service too!
It was beautiful weather, so we chose to sit on the patio. The music level was so loud that we had a hard communicating. We requested for the music to be turned down, and it was turned down slightly.
Food was fine.
Birthday for 14 yo. Staff was very attentive. Unfortunately barely the birthday girl’s order cake out wrong, but staff corrected relative quickly. Restaurant was relatively empty for a Friday night.
Celebrated coworker's birthday and first time at Kona Grill. Food was delicious and portion sizes were big.
I had scheduled a long awaited luncheon with a friend and was happy to have selected Kona Grill.
The service was attentive, while allowing time to visit with conversation, providing drinks and food promptly, but at a pace accommodating our schedule.
Tha sushi was fresh and flavorful and the presentation was quite nice.
I would happily recommend this as a great place to dine with friends and family!
It was very good food and service.
Great food. Some is a bit pricier than I'd like, but in general is a nice spot for a special occasion. Took my parents there for their anniversary and all had a great time. Good for kids too, they get a cute bento box meal with sides.
A bit too expensive for the offerings. The wine was good and the appetizers I enjoyed but the sushi itself was very average.
The Kona Dinner Menu is creative and original, very tasty. We tried the Fondue and really liked it, as well as the oriental side salad and our entrees (Macadamian Nut Chicken and Pork Tenderloin - the sauces were outstanding!) Ambiance is great, overall very enjoyable.
Great sushi! Calamari sauce is spicy - great if you like the heat.
Food was good but service is extremely slow. Getting food took forever
I recently stopped at Kona for lunch and had a Shrimp Poke bowl. I Loved the Shrimp Poke bowl, so much that I went back a week later for dinner.
Birthday dinner with the family. Food was great
Kona is one of my favorites! Not everyone likes sushi so it is a great option to please a group.
Great food and something for everyone. A very broad menu with great choices for all tastes.
First time there. I got the Sea Bass and my husband got a steak - both of us enjoyed our selections. Server was friendly and helpful
We've gone there on several occasions although it's been awhile. I always go for the macadamia encrusted chicken. So good!! BUT they changed it ,wasn't even edable.
Was so disappointed. Also I'm not sure who eats all that corn side dish but that wasn't good,maybe they serve it because it's cheap. PLEASE tell them to fix the chicken.
Great sushi and lettuce wraps. Great environment and service
Food was poor at best. Server did everything he could do save the meal, but it was not worth saving.
Sushi was excellent
There's something for our whole family at Kona. I ♡ sushi. My 4 children don't. Their children's menu is perfect.
Overall I had a good experience. Our waitress was terrific. Though, the noise level was too high- suggest you lower the music volume.
Best Happy Hour in the area for Sushi. Staff was very attentive. Will definitely go back.
They have the best sea bass we ever had. Love the miso flavor. Our server was Jessica who was very obliging and lots of fun.
Service was slow and awful. Sushi rolls were just okay. Chicken stir-fry was overly spicy considering it only had red pepper seasoning. They took it back and was still spicy.
The service was excellent. We were greeted and seated immediately. The server was very personable and knowledgeable. She helped with our numerous questions regarding the food and drink options. The meals were delicious and the portions were perfect. Definitely going back.
My friend and I enjoyed Kona Grill so much last time we met, we decided to go again~and it did not disappoint. Waite staff is courteous and attentive without being bothersome. The food selection is diverse, well presented and delicious. I recommend Kona Grill, and will return when looking for a restaurant in the Oak Brook area.
Our server was very nice and we had a nice dinner. We sat in the patio area where Happy Hour was and got 1/2 price food and drinks. You can’t beat that!
food was well prepared; but all our dishes were just a little bit salty. not a deal killer, though. Our server was behind and having to be helped by 2other people to get our orders out. we waited a little while for the dishes to come; but hey, it was saturday night at prime time.
I rated this restaurant as a "1" because of the MANAGER at this restaurant! Read on:
1) Food - very good. 2) Server named Curtis - excellent. 3) Noise level - hard to hear our guests but it was a busy night. 4) Now the manager on Friday night: I was urged by my friends to join KONA'S "Club". In doing so, I immediately received a "Free Appetizer Coupon" via email. We gave Curtis (our server) the coupon when we ordered the appetizer. When we went to pay for our evening (over $200 for 4 people), we were advised by Curtis that the coupon was "INVALID". He explained we couldn't use it. We could tell he was very embarrassed - so I graciously told him not to worry. QUESTION: How can the MANAGER tell the server to tell the customer (who is paying $200+) that the coupon is INVALID? At many other restaurants, you tell advise them it is a birthday or anniversary, and they give you a complimentary appetizer, cocktail, or dessert! The manager should have accepted the Free Appetizer Coupon"! Or, s/he should have personally come to our table to give us the explanation. UPDATE: The next day I had a friend sign up for their "Club". He immediately received his "Free Appetizer Coupon". He then called the restaurant. IT, TOO, WAS "INVALID"! SO, SOMEONE AT KONA GRILL SHOULD TALK TO THEIR WEBMASTER AND FIX THE PROBLEM!! AND, TOP MANAGEMENT SHOULD FIRE THE MANAGER WHO WORKED FRIDAY EVENING, 3/16/2018. THEY AREN'T QUALIFIED TO MANAGE A RESTAURANT OF THIS QUALITY! They should, instead, be working as a waiter at Denny's. In summary, we WILL NEVER return to this restaurant! VERY SAD!!
Extremely disappointed with the management at Kona Grill. The most unfriendly and unprofessional manager seated us and told us we couldn’t do the happy hour deal at our reserved table even though we had specified that we wanted a table for a larger group for the happy hour deal when making the reservation and were told that that was definitely possible. He also proceeded to complain about us to all the workers and several of the members of the party witnessed this which brought the mood of the birthday celebration down. We come to this restaurant very frequently (1-2 times a week) and were very disappointed by how they handled the situation.
Food quality has gone down.
Was feeling Japanese Food and my lovely wife and myself decided to dine here. We have to say that their Grill Mahi-Mahi over White Rice is definitely a must try for any seafood lovers. Overall Food and Service is very good so if ever in the area or near any Kona Grill location a must try...
Keith was a great server. Our water and coffee were never empty. Dinner came out perfectly timed after finishing appetizers. A delightful dining experience.
