The food was good. They have a great sound system, however the music was so loud that the server could not hear us to take our order. We could not comfortably talk due to the high volume of the music. Music should be there as an accent on the ambiance of the restaurant. The volume was. Ig BT club level.

Other than our waitress Lizzie being pleasant, this was an overall negative experience. We ordered two dishes- a salad and poke bowl- that should have come out quickly, and they took over 45 minutes- completely unacceptable.

Hi Brent: So sorry to hear that your experience here at Kona Grill Plano was a negative one. We do appreciate the positive comment about Lizzie, however.

It is a nice, attractive place. The food is good and there is a wide selection. I was very disappointed with the table/seating/service. We had reservations for 6. We arrived on time and had to wait even with open tables visible. They ended up squeezing us into a table for 4. This was a problem considering there were 3 10 person tables available and stayed open while we ate.

Hi Ben: We appreciate you taking the time to review our restaurant on Open Table. I'm sorry to hear that the seating was not to your liking. We frequently have to modify our seating for reservations contingent upon our staffing availability. However, I do believe we could have done better than try to fit a party of 6 into a 4 top. What other aspects of the service were you unhappy with? I look forward to hearing more from you regarding your review. Sincerely, Shawn, Manager, Kona Grill Plano

Our first visit to this Kona Grill was amazing. We were so excited to go back. Unfortunately, we did not have the same experience. There was hair in 2 out of 3 meals. Instead of replacing the meal, they brought it out on a different plate, then tried to trick us by adding an additional meal to our check, and discounting that meal. Rather than discounting the meal we ordered. We will definitely not be back.
