Sushi was creative but small and pricey, salmon and chicken was ok but a little over spiced

Poor service. Took over an hour to get our food. Entire restaurant smelled like sewage, especially the bathroom!

I'm sorry about the delay in getting your order out. That is an unacceptable amount of time to wait and can understand your frustration. The smell was caused by some construction work being done in our garage. The work has been completed and is expected to resolve the issue. Please feel free to reach out to a manager at 402.779.2900 or omaha@konagrill.co the next time you plan on stopping in.

Our service was HORRABLE! We were a party of 7 adults and a 1 and 2 year old. Our server, Payton I think, was nice, when we saw him but was not attentive at all. We arrived on time for our 7:30 dinner reservation. Didn't get our drink until 7:50. Appetizer arrived at about 8:10. At 8:30 I flagged our server down and asked for drink refills and let him know that we were celebrating my wife's birthday and that I would appreciate him stepping up his Customer Service. He kind of laughed and walked off. We didn't see him again until our dinner arrived at about 9:20 that the Chef brought out to us. I told him our experience and that I was not happy. He apologized and was nice. 3 plates came out. 10 minutes later 3 more plates came out. About 15 minutes my wife's dinner came out. The chef apologized again and said he would fix our bill. and he did at 10:30 when we were leaving. To say it sucked would be being nice. Will not Ever go back.

Ashley greeted me and my friend at the door and seated us at the indoor dining section. She was awesome and I am recommending all my friends go to Kona Grill for Ashley. She helped my friend make a decision on desserts and ensured I got my to-go order/boxes for leftovers. She is a very valuable employee and delivers excellent service. Thank you Ashley! 💖💖💖

The food was pretty good as usual but the service was terrible from the minute we talked in the door. We had reservations yet the host didn’t seem to want to seat us. Pointed us to two seats open at the bar and told us to seat ourselves at that spot. Once we did we weren’t greeted for quite a while - felt as though we were more of a bother than a customer.

Never been more disappointed in Kona. Shift change. Ordered with the first server. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 salads and a bunch of rolls. Our salads came out first, which I would have liked the apps first as that is the way it was ordered. Within seconds of getting our salads, everything else came out. Food was subpar in comparison to the many other times I have been there. Just disappointed.

Since this was our first time to actually dine in since Covid started, we were impressed how quickly we were seated and how clean Kona Grill was.

Next was our waiter. Michael was outstanding, did not overstay his time at our table end gave us adequate time to look through the menu and also eat our appetizers.

Michael did an outstanding job waiting on us even after we had paid for our wonderful meal tonight. For that, please give him a deserved raise and review. He deserves it by how he was tonight.

Hi, we come here like at least twice a month and we love it here. Peyton was our server and he’s also a manager and he’s wonderful. We always try to ask for him if he’s working and he is so great. We always bring new friends that haven’t been here for them to try it, especially sushi. Thanks

Food was amazing. Service was terrible. Took 15 minutes and asking 3 times for water. Waitress forgot to input one of the meals for our table. Claimed first night open was the issue. Then charged us for the meal and up charge item. Manager ended up comping that meal but another managed claimed it was first night of being open and being busy. The restaurant was not all that busy. Just disappointed at the service.

The sushi didn’t stay together, it literally was a ball of rice as soon as you touched it. Drinks didn’t come until after the food. We were there for way over two hours, pretty much just waiting for the check or waiting for someone to check on us. The steak was bone dry, couldn’t even eat it. The entire time we were there we were only assisted three times, that includes our ordering.

Not knowIng we needed reservations we went directly to restaurant when we got there we found out they we needed and only online. That’s the part that was crazy I had to download app go online etc fill out bunch of info took 10 minutes at least the girl at front desk couldn’t even help it wasn’t easy finding where to go, that was just plan ridiculous I’m standing right in front of the gal I’m sending the info to her there’s no reason why she couldn’t have just said I’ll put you down such and such time but no I had to do it online it’s was ridiculous! Then we had to wait over 30 minutes after reservation! This policy does not make sense if you have room when person comes in, get them a seat. Online is fine but not if you walk-in and there’s an opening! Then there were 3 girls at front desk most of the time not doing much but our waitress was running her butt off. What be of them could’ve been helping!
