    We enjoy Kona Grill very much, although in past year prices have increased a lot, so much so that we no longer order an appetizer. (General price of appetizer is now $18.00). However, quality of food is very good and everything we had was delicious. Mine: Macadamia Nut Chicken ($29.00) with mashed potatoes, asparagus, shoyu cream and pineapple salsa; my husband's: Checkerboard Sushi with dipping sauce ($22.00). I shared my tasty asparagus with an Asian flavor with him. We also ordered a side salad ($13.00) and shared that which was a decent amount each. The server, Christina, was attentive, friendly, and informative, especially striking because she was evidently a new hire. We would never have guessed that! Also, one of the perks of the Kona Rewards program is a $15.00 birthday coupon which is definitely worthwhile. I would suggest checking their menu on line to decide what you'd like to try and if the value is worth it to you. If you like sushi, it is always of very good quality.

    Unfortunately not a good experience again. Went for happy hour and after about 20 minutes of placing our order the waiter explained they were out of “crab”. So we had to order sushi from the regular menu, at a much higher cost. We never received parts of our order (just told them to forget it) then the manager (Matt) came over to also explain that they were also out of chicken satay… he apologized and offered to give us a discount for the meal. So at the end of the day, we had ordered food that was not available, significant delays in getting the food, check, drinks etc. (even though the restaurant was not crowded) we discovered that they comped us an order of sliders $6… This is the 2nd time we have had a lackluster experience here, will not likely go back

    Food was good, place was clean. Other than our main waiter others there must be very new at waiting on tables or just didn't care. The two people that brought the entrees to table were not not good. They came with our food and nobody had removed any of the empty plates from the appetizers. Those with the food never said a work but waited for us to make room on the table for them to put our plates down. Neither of them asked any other waiters to remove the plates or tried to remove any plates to make room for the entrees.

    The area we sat in was quite cold, even though we weren’t by the door. We also couldn’t taste the alcohol in our drinks. The pour was very light. Despite not being packed, drinks took a long time to come out. Our server was great & very attentive.

    Loved it here. The sweet chili salmon was banging. The watermelon margarita was sweet but still had a great kick to get you tipsy. The only downside was we waited 15 minutes for a server to greet us but after speaking with the host. We were served immediately and gifted a free appetizer for waiting. Service was nice and the food came out fast even on a busty Friday night

    Our group of three were greeted promptly and seated quickly. Our waitress took our drink orders shortly after we were seated. She advise that my drink request, a Spiritz, would be made with Prosecco instead of Aperol. She said if I didn’t care for it, it would be removed from the bill. I appreciated that. We ordered appetizers and our entrees. The food took a little longer than expected to come out but we were not in a rush. The appetizers were good. We had the chicken satay and avocado egg rolls. Our entrees was a lemon chicken pasta dish and 2 tofu Asian stir fry’s. The stir fry’s we were allowed to substitute the the chicken with tofu but we were surprised we were charge for that. Our waitress did ask how we wanted the spice as level of the stir fry’s. We said mild but unfortunately to was still too spicy. We did not finish the stir fry’s. The waitress was aware and brought us a sweet dipping sauce but there was just too many red pepper flakes in the stir fry. We did order two desserts with ice cream to satisfy our appetite and to cool our palate from the spicy food. If anyone goes to Kona in Woodbridge NJ you should be careful how they prepare spicy food. This has happens once before. Lesson learned.

    Most of the food we ordered was really good. The service was horrible after we received our appetizer. Food was missing, came out late, extra that were purchased arrived frozen and we had to flag down a busser to complete the meal. I had to have an super expensive dish refired because by the time it was prepared for me, it had been sitting for some time. My drink was forgotten about. Side dishes didn't arrive until our meal was almost done and I didn't get my meal until my dinng companions were almost finished with their food. My entire dish was compromised of all upcharges; I splurged for the wagyu, a lobster roll accompaniment (which they also forgot), and a lobster butter that was to be "fire finished" tableside (this butter was initially send out, frozen, on top of my first wagyu steak). The restaurant offered nothing for all of the trouble. We were trying to he very understanding despite being very upset and maybe they figured they did not have to make anything right for us because we were not getting super upset. They said sorry but still charged us for everything. I have never eaten somewhere, where the service tanked so horribly, and they still charged for everything. The meal was not worth the amount we spent. The service significantly lessened the experience for us. Everyone was disappointed with the outcome of the meal and I, personally, got hit several times with the repercussions of their horrible service. We still tipped because our tips are not extra for the servers. It's their living wages so I'm not going to not pay someone for issues that yes, we're partly their fault but mostly a problem resulting from poor kitchen management. They definitely need to do better with their management as well as their customer service. They truly dropped the ball on this one.

    We had reservations at 6:45, seated by 7, didn’t leave until 9:30. Service was so slow, we got 2 drinks the entire time we were there. 2 hours to get food, people were served that arrived after us. Our bill for 4 people was over $300, food was decent but took almost two hours to get. Overall we will never go back.

    I believe they increases the price for all dishes recently and cut down the portion as well. It becomes unreasonably pricy. I ordered a poke bowl, they diced up the fishes in small tiny pieces and serve in a small soup bowl with a few greens. It is even smaller than a normal appetizer, and charged for $22. I definitely won’t go back again.

    Good as usual but this time the food we order was not prepared right. The pop stickers were Luke warm, the bama rolls was missing the usual spice mayo and crunchy on top. I usually ask for extra lettuce for the chicken shrimp wrap and is usually free, this time I was charged, not much, .50 cents, strange

    We both had the macadamia nut chicken. which was excellent and enough to take 1/2 home for another meal. The online menu has a notation for allergens and the server notified us that the green beans were cooked by the shell fish so my husband was given another choice which was broccoli which we like anyway. I still had the green beans which were stir fried, I think, and were the best green beans I ever had. The manager came to check on us and was very attentive. The server gave us just the right amount of attention.
