    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.

    Kona Grill is my "go to place". The people who work there are lovely, you can tell they like their jobs. From the Manager all the way to the service. Paula is one of my favorites .. she makes you feel like family. I feel safe and comfortable in this place. and the food is also delicious!

    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.

    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.

    Kona Grill - WoodbridgeResponded on September 30, 2022We're so sorry about the experience that you received. Here at Kona Grill we pride ourselves on excellent food and excellent service to back that up. We will ensure that your next visit will be a much better experience.

    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.
