    My waiter got 2 bigger party’s and never came back to my table. A half hour went by and I hadn’t seen him. I had to go to the front desk to pay my bill because he stopped paying me attention. Usually the service is better here. But this waiters service sucks. Waiter was a guy with glasses and a ponytail.

    Presentation for the steak was plated as if I was a child. Overly priced for everything. Just to have a 2/10 service. They need to do better.

    This place is super expensive and the food and service do not match the prices. We paid $22 dollars for an avocado egg roll appetizer that came out within minutes and they tasted like an imitation version of what the Cheesecake Factory does but not as good and double the price. Food portions were small and not well seasoned. Average dessert was $17 and they only had three available on their menu. We took a pass. This was my first time coming here. I expected to pay more but I also expected to have a great meal.

    The food has mixed reviews. I purchased the Surf & Turf Filet with Crab Oscar and chili pepper green beans. Overall, it was delicious. But the portion size left a lot to be desired, particularly given the typically exorbitant price of Surf & Turf. My wife had the Rainbow Roll sushi. There is nothing pleasant to say about it. Her comment was it tasted like grocery store, refrigerated sushi. It was t fresh. It was fridge temperature cold with little flavor. It was also incredibly expensive for what was a typical rainbow roll. We also had the seared sea bass sliders and the pretzels & butter. Both were good. The cucumber salad on the side of the sliders was very good. The service was meh. Our server disappeared for a lengthy period of time despite the place being relatively empty. It wasn't until I discovered a "summon" button on the table computer display that he eventually came back. Lastly, the restaurant lacked character. It was blah inside. As if I was pulling into a hotel restaurant on the main floor of the Hilton. The manager did discount the meal because if the bad sushi. But overall, we weren't impressed.

    Mop the bathroom floors, get new hostesses, lower prices by 10%, stop using fireball in a $16 old fashioned, don’t burn the already dried out chicken, make your sushi less fishy, and maybe we will come back. Making it that easy for kids to buy the bs $3 app on your crusty tablet is a bit of a cheap trick too.

    We ordered the New Years Eve special, Prime rib and Shrimp (surf and turf). For $49, the steak was the thinnest prime rib I've ever seen. The shrimps on a skewer were over done. Dad got 22oz porterhouse at Longhornes the other day and it was $42 with a salad and big baked sweet potatoe. I was disappointed that the night cost us $280 for 3 people with only 2 bar drinks between us.

    It was not as good as in the past. Feel like it was soooo much more expensive and there was no alcohol involved. They didn’t even have enough menus so they had really small photocopies and appetizers came out 2 minutes before food The kicker was the waitress smelled like a cloud of marijuana. It didn’t start that way so she much have been smoking at work. I know it’s legal now but give me a break!

    Overall, eating at The Kona Grill It was a terrible experience for my family. We decided to go out for my son's 22nd birthday. It was my husband and I and our two sons. I chose this place because I have never been, and a friend suggested it. The service was very slow, the food was not filling and extremely overpriced. The appetizers were very small in quantity. I had to return my dinner because it was not tasty, and it was a chicken dish. It was our first time and last time dining at the Kona Grill.
