Prices have skyrocketed here. How can they charge $11 for edamame? And something crazy like $19 for a California roll?!? I ordered a pasta with no tomatoes and add shrimp. I got pasta with chicken and tomatoes. Server was just like, so sorry, but made no effort to correct it. Waited 15 minutes for server to bring water and lemons. Waited at least 15 minutes after asking for check for her to bring it. I know they were busy, but not more than usual. And we saw many other servers running around when ours seemed to disappear. Overall, not an enjoyable experience.

Mac and cheese and Brussel sprouts were flavorless.
Waited 15 min to get a waitress at all. Then after our food was brought we were forgotten about. No water refill no drink refill. And the prices didn’t seem to match the quality or size of what you ordered… :/ first time there and likely my last.

Really enjoyed the pop music they had playing and the tone was loud enough that you weren’t hearing other guests but quiet enough that me and my date were able to hear one another comfortably without talking loud. The sea bass with fried rice and Boch Choy was amazing the fish was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The fried rice had shrimp and pineapple (as well as typical fried rice stuff) to compliment the sea bass and boch choy. The boch choy was I assume pan fried. The flavors were amazing. Also had sake and beer ice cold and enjoyed the evening. The wait staff was attentive and refilled drinks in a timely manor as well as having a comfortable rapport with the guests. I will definitely recommend and be back myself.

It was a really busy night. From the time we sat down until our drinks arrived (cocktails not water) was almost 30 minutes. However with the shortage of workers in the restaurant industry I don’t judge them too harshly. The food was very good. Even at happy hour I think we spent $60 for 2 people.

First time to Kona in years. Sushi roll was very good. Chop salad tasted good, but had way too much dressing that it made the lettuce soggy. Pad Thai on the order was messed up - had bean sprouts and cilantro when we asked for without. The waiter tried to say it was our fault. He took it off the bill but didn’t offer to make a new one. Didn’t get our drinks refilled once. Overall, not too impressed, probably won’t be back any time soon.

Our server was amazing!!!!!!!! The food was great. If it wasn’t for that we may never come back.

The carpet was so sticky and gross.
There were so many fruit flies that you had to constantly wave your hand to move them as you ate it was almost like you were outside.
Maybe you should spend a little money getting your carpets cleaned or replaced and that may help with those fruit flies that were everywhere.

Also, the west windows behind your bar the glare from the sun was ridiculous. I can’t believe you’ve been in business this long and nobody has complained, if you’re sitting at the bar you’d never be able to see anything and it glared into our eyes for at least 45 minutes at our table in the center of the room.

Never been there before. Server didnt seem to happy to be there. 2 servers were on break so we sat out in patio area. i heard our server telling the table next to us , Guests asked id if it was happy hour all day Sunday. Server replied no but do you want to still eat here or are you leaving. I was floored by his response. Made the rest of my visit a little awkward. Food was alright we all got a lil sick later that night from it. Service was cool but nothing over the top at all. There was nothing at that restraunt that would make me come back. Also your hostessess were all over the phone when we arrived. And seemed bothered we were a little early for our reservation. Ill be writing a yelp and google review in this visit as well.

It was way too loud. We were seated next to a bachelorette party and another birthday party and it was obnoxious. We came there for date night and could barely hear each other over the sound of the other patrons. Definitely not a great atmosphere.

Our steak came back too done and we had to send it back. The manager and server were great and comped that dish.

But overall, the experience felt like an Applebees or a TGIF with a much higher price tag. Won't come back.
