Great food. Our kids love the Bento Box and an extra $1 for dessert was a steal. Our waiter wasn't great, but we have had some great experiences.

Huge shout out to Teka, the General Manager At Kona Grill.
We showed up at 11 pm for dinner (after seeing Fiddler on the Roof.) The doors were unlocked and we walked in, but they’d just closed. Teka paused for a second but then seated us since he had a few hours of work to finish up.
After drinks, edamame & sushi…we asked for the check, and he insisted it was on the house. We kept insisting….but nope… on the house. Just wow!
One more reminder that there is grace and goodness in the world.
PS: It was delicious!!!!

We had hoped for better: SLOW service (and no, it was not that busy), horrible scotch selection (you really don't have a full bar - and the scotch I wanted had a fly in the bottle - how is THAT possible?), and it got worse. We ordered an appetizer - we asked for plates, and after a few minutes (and now a cold appetizer), flagged down another server to get plates. The women's room - a disaster (toilet paper on the floor, 1 stall completely out, etc.). And our table - see picture! This is actually unsanitary!

We have been to this location many times so we were kind of disappointed on this visit. The restaurant was fairly empty yet it took almost 40 minutes to get our food. I could see my food waiting under the heaters for at least 20 minutes before we asked about our food. The waitress said she would put a rush on my wife’s sushi. Other tables that got there after our received their sushi before we received our meal. We ordered pop and it must have been put in wrong because we kept getting the wrong thing and finally settled on water. We will be back but our experience was a disappointment and wished we had gone elsewhere.

The food was terrible. I didn't mind they were short staffed, but the whole family did not enjoy any of the dishes. The appetizers were cold, the sushi wasn't good, the Pad Thai was awful. Its a restaurant that looks like it has potential to be good... but looks are deceiving. Would not return

Our server was absolutely wonderful! She was on top of everything and when my daughter received a dish that wasn’t made correctly, she quickly got her a new entree and comped us for it. We’re definitely going back!

Nobody came to the host stand to greet or acknowledge us at the front, so we stood there and waited 10 mins and decided to just leave. What a waste of our night and I didn't get points for the visit which was a double negative. We were visible to employees too.

We decided to try the Kona Grill at Ridgedale last night. We'd been to the one in Eden Prairie and enjoyed it. Unfortunately this experience didn't go well.
When we arrived the two young women at the host stand couldn't have been less welcoming. One of them never even looked up from the computer screen. The one that showed us to our table never smiled or welcomed us and left us one menu for two people. I had requested a quiet spot. We were seated in the middle of room. A lot of hard surfaces and loud music made it hard to talk. Although the warning on Open Table said "masks must be worn" unless eating or drinking virtually none of the staff or patrons were masked. We counted two. Our waiter, who was nice (if unmasked) informed us they were out of both sea bass and salmon which eliminated a good part of the sushi menu including the dish we'd come for. All in all it was very disappointing. We won't be going back.

I was disappointed as your web site re. Restaurant Week listed prime rib as an entree. Our rez was for 4:30pm and server said they were out of prime rib--only left us with chicken or salmon as a choice. Salmon serving was a bit small, potstickers were delicious and ample(6). Cake slices were huge and delicious.

I had a standard table reservation. When I arrived I was asked if I high top table would be OK, I said yes. Next thing I know I'm being taken to a regular table outside. It didn't seem too cold but after sitting for a few minutes we realized it was getting chillier and asked if they could close the patio windows; we were told they could not. The waitress offered to move us so we went inside. Not five minutes later they closed the windows in the outside area. One of my guests ordered a drink which sat at the bar for 10 minutes until she finally walked up to the bartender to ask if that was her drink. We sat at our table for another 25 minutes before our waitress came back to us to take our food orders. The restaurant was not busy, yet the service was slow. Dessert was comped because the waitress "felt bad that she forgot about us". Kona is not one of my first choices of restaurants, I've had issues all three times I've eaten there. But the people I was meeting picked it so I went along. I don't think I'll be coming back.

Hands down the worst experience we have ever had at Kona Grill. The waitress did not seem to be trained at all. The restaurant was at most 1/3 full and it took almost an hour to get our food and my wife’s order was all wrong. When it was remade it was obvious the chef over spiced her poke bowl as it was way spicier than it normally is. Not sure I’ll return to this location again.

In a word awful! from being seated by a hostess that gave us a tour of half the restaurant and ended up seating us up close to the front where we came in.
Took a long time to order, took a long time for our food, sushi rolls, the order came out wrong, one of the specialty rolls was missing the cream cheese and the special Hibiscus sauce. We explained to our waiter who talked to the chef and chef said nope that's how its suppose to be. We are not stupid. Our waiter tried bringing us two different sauces which did not go well with our coconut shrimp & mango with no cream cheese, suppose to be like a dessert roll. it was bland no flavor. This restaurant used to be top notch. We have tried several times this year to go back to this place but the music was loud and banging couldn't even have a conversation without yelling across table. We will not be going back :(
