    Client Shame / Surprise Blown!!! The service was slower than moIasses sliding on peanut butter. It was a client dinner of 20 persons. Restaurant was pretty empty. Only 1 waitress was assigned to our table. She kept asking my client instead of me about actions to take. I had also brought a cake, that was supposed to be a surprise for one of the client Exec's and waitress actually went up to the Bday Exec to ask when she should bring out the cake. My Exec client Exec so disappointed she actually complained about the service. Literally what they did was remove the typical service fee you include for a large group. But let's face it, you didn't service us like a large group! We kept having to call for service for simple items like water for the guests, the waitress was chit chatting, etc. Bottom line it was seriously poorly managed from start to end. The food, however, was good and their saving grace. I reduced their tip to 15%. I was thoroughly embarrassed and actually apologized to my Exec client for feeling compelled to complain. If it was busy or we were being obnoxious I may have been more forgiving. I left upset, disappointed, and well fed.

    Everyone was professional and nice. They gave myself and my friend plenty of time to decide what we wanted without bothering us. We hadn’t seen each other in a while. The Saki Sangria and Macadamia Nut Chicken were so good!

    They change their menu too much. Several times I've returned for dishes I like, only to find they're off the menu. Used to have a several flatbreads and poke bowls to choose from, and also had meatloaf....gone! Mostly sushi now, and mostly expensive. Appeitizer, entree, 1 drink (alcohol) came to about $90 each before tip....too much!

    Wanted to try a new place not too far for my daughter and daughter-in-law‘s birthdays (and my grandson‘s 1/2yrbirthday). Making the reservation was easy, it was an early dinner so there was plenty of choice of tables, so we chose an indoor large booth. The ambience is lovely, the receptionist gave us a warm welcome. Our server Nicole was a sweetheart, Professionally friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Food was American with an Hawaiian flair, delicious beautiful and well-priced. I’m sorry I don’t remember the managers name, but he also was very attentive, came over a couple of times to see how we were doing, and then offered my girls a coupon for their next visit. We will definitely be returning to this Kona Grill.

    The service was awful. Took way too long to get water. Very slow to get food as well. Apps came out wrong and one entree came out wrong. Had to send it back due to allergies and it took forever for the entree to come out once corrected. Server never asked if we needed more drinks or water. Had to ask numerous times for more water. It’s a shame because the food was good but the service was so bad I don’t think I’ll go back.

    We went there on the hot summer night for dinner, and they had us sit were no air-conditioning wasn't available; about 45 minutes later, the waitress came to take our order. When we asked if we could change our sitting location, they moved us to a different location where we had better air conditioning. After changing our seating arrangement, we had to wait another 25 minutes to place the order, which made us very uncomfortable and hungry. After placing the order, our food arrived at a reasonable time.

    Not worth your money! STAY AWAY from here! We went here to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday & had date night menu.. thinking it was going to be great. I was so wrong! I should have listened to the previous negative reviews. Let’s start with food - We had lobster toast… it was meh.. the bread was so dry & lobster was so cheap tasting.. Next - entrees were a bit better .. we had ribeye. We asked for medium & it came out well done. Thank goodness for the butter on the steak! We also had the Korean ribs . That was good.. my only beef with that was… the menu didn’t say it has sesame seeds & I dislike sesame seeds so much! So that kinda ruined the ribs. Here comes dessert.. the taste was alright. So in my notes during the reservation, I stated to please bring out the slice of cheesecake with a candle for birthday celebration. The new waitress had no clue about it.. this annoyed me .. it was supposed to have like a birthday celebration.. but it didn’t… horrible! Horrible! Now the service… it was the worst! I felt like people at McDonald’s treat you better! The waitress gave us a glass of water & disappeared!!! No one was around to give us condiments or another glass of water.. it was just a very disappointing, horrendous experience. Not worth your money! STAY AWAY from here! If there’s a rating of zero, I’d give that rating!

    Third times a charm. We were sent a gift card because of 2 terrible experiences before so we tried once more. We didn't order anything too complicated I had a salad which was delicious, my husband and I split the chicken and shrimp lettuce wrap and he had a burger. All of those came out in an ample amount of time and were delicious. The waitress was excellent. We will go back again because what we had was good this time.

    My order came out wrong. My salmon was dry and over cooked. The side of broccoli was undercooked and hard to chew plus it cost $8.00 for about 5 pieces. Our Happy hour appetizer of only 3 tiny pot stickers were unsatisfying. Overall I was greatly disappointed in my $80 meal for 2 on our 49th anniversary.

    Wish I can give tonight’s staff 0 stars. This is my 6th time at this restaurant. Unfortunately it will be the last. The front desk staff profiles customers. I got a wait time of 1 and half hours but online I can make a reservation for 15 minutes later. Then customers of another ethnicity walk in and their wait time is 30 minutes. Now they say I got to wait till the 15 minutes had elapsed to get service. Spoke to manager and still no resolution.

    The food was cooked perfectly and my kids loved the bento boxes(super picky eaters). BUT the service was super slow. I still gave 4stars because the waitress warned us ahead of time and encouraged us to order appetizers and to order early. Drinks were great. My husband enjoyed his Father’s Day dinner.
