Due to Covid, I made a reservation for an outside table. Just a few weeks ago, there was an outdoor table for checking in, but after standing near the outside entrance for a solid 5 minutes, someone told us we would have to go inside the restaurant to check in for our reservation. We did so and were then. Led throughout the entire inside of the restaurant to be led to an outside table. None of the customers inside the restaurant were wearing masks and it made us VERY uncomfortable to be taken inside for an outside reservation. I ordered off the Happy Hour menu and was charged regular prices. When this was pointed out, the manager came over to our table and treated us like we were criminals trying to get away with something. We had been regular customers there prior to the pandemic, but the service staff and manager have changed. This new team is both rude and inexperienced. Though the food is very good (we love the angry edamame), these days no one needs extra stress from a restaurant’s staff.

We were scheduled for 7:15 and were seated a little before that time which was great. We ordered ate and were paying all within the next hour and out the door by 8:30 due to ordering last minute dessert. Overall very great experience, server was very nice and quick with all our requests. Would recommend and definitely will be back, thank you!

The food was flavorful and well prepared. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of it for the price. Thankfully (said sarcastically) the rib eye was thin because I never got a steak knife ... even upon request. My bottle of beer came after I finished my meal. I can over pay for good (not great) food and poor service at lots of places. No need to go back to this place.

Food and drinks at Kona are usually pretty good, but service is lacking a bit - specifically with how much time waitstaff takes to check on the table throughout the time I’m dining. Given the current situation (with COVID), I’m assuming and hoping being short staffed is the reason.

I was grateful to go to Kona during COVID times. The food was quite good as usual. Service was a bit off but nothing terrible. The noise level from Route 1 while sitting in the parking lot was less enjoyable. With indoor dinning back, that would be my preference.

The service was good and the restaurant is well set up for COVID safety. However, we found the food was overpriced and really not to our taste. Everything we order tasted too salty. In one case, the miso soup, the waiter and server both said they received a lot of complaints about it. Other entrees were much spicier than noted on the menu. Personally, I liked this but the other people in our group were not able to handle the heat.

We had a reservation for 245 and we had called earlier to see if there was any openings earlier and the hostess had told us to come on in (about 20 minutes before our reservation). When we reached there, the table was not ready and it had seemed as if there were no empty tables available. When we were upset about this, the hosts continued to give us attitude. Very poor attitude with hosts outside. Waiter was nice. Would not visit again due to poor attitude of hosts.

Our waiter was advised that the Apple Martini she ordered tasted like a Mojito. He stood there as if he did not know what to do and even said it is a Apple Martini. He then reluctantly took it back then took over 30 minutes to return with a different drink. His excuse was that they only had one bartender on this night which is probably the reason why the first drink was done incorrectly.

As someone that has worked in the food industry for many years. I have high expectations when it comes a restaurants delivery of the baseline mechanics of customer service and understanding how service should be delivered. The host was great and immediately attentive. We got seated within the proposed time and the table was clean(It sounds crazy but I can't tell you how many times I've been to a restaurant and the table it wiped quickly...and there is little bits of food that are left on the table or on the floor...that just tells me that a restaurant doesn't care...but that was definitely not the case at KG). Our server Xavier was very attentive from the beginning and answered all my specific questions on what was included in the food and how it was prepared (Mastering the understanding of the menu is key).
the food came out quick..and within the first two bites Xavier came to check up to make sure that everything was good (It was perfect . There's nothing worse then having something wrong with your food and a server doesn't come back for a while and you sit there hungry and dissatisfied). The food was hot. the flow of service was perfect. and I look forward to returning with my wife soon. I hope the restaurant reads this to their servers at the beginning of the shift prep....as these little things (though they sound minimal and almost first nature) are super important to building a customer base and securing repeat customers.

Took a bit to get my frozen margarita by the time I got it , it was already half melted. The waiter also took a bit of time to get to my table meanwhile other people already got their orders in and got their food before us even though we were seated before them. Waiter was nice just wished he’d come sooner.

Arrived at my reservation time & no hostess to be found, had to ask bus boy to find her. She slowly came strolling out with her head in her tablet. Was finally seated and ordered drinks had to wait over 20 minutes for them to arrive. Ordered Sangria which tasted like mud fruit juice, sent it back no alcohol in it. Mind you they want you to leave in 80 minutes which is a laugh at the pace of their service. Then ordered a salad and added grilled chicken at an extra cost, there were tiny slivers of chicken which maybe amounted to a tablespoon. Happy hours dinner cost $90.00 and left there hungry. Will never be going back. Very poorly run.
