The food and service were excellent. However, there was a DJ that played music so loud that we had trouble hearing one another and the server. We didn’t go to a club, we went to eat dinner and talk with friends. Maybe turn down the music so customers can enjoy each other.
The music level was waaaaaaay too loud! Excellent food but a little pricey. I would recommend if you just want to eat and not visit while doing so.
Our salads were delicious. Oriental with salmon but the salad w/out a protein is priced too high. And $4 for iced tea is absurd. Waitress was a delight. Always enjoy Kona but I don’t feel the prices for what we had are warranted.
We arrived 15 minutes early and were told we'd have to wait to be seated as if they were packed. When we were taken to our table it was dirty. We asked the host to clean it and the benches. When he left after cleaning the table it was still dirty so we cleaned it. Our drinks took about 20 minutes and the food 30 minutes to come out.
We understand being undermanned. You should know it's going to be a long wait and it's not up to par for the price. They must step up their game if they want to stay open.
Our reservation was for 12:45p and we were seated promptly. We were there to celebrate a birthday and see a family member off to the airport (4p flight) and figured we had plenty of time. First hiccup, the drinks we ordered from the bar never arrived (waited 10 min after non-alcoholic drinks arrived to inquire) our waitress (who was very nice) had to check and get them sent out. The appetizer we ordered, the Brainiac, was taking forever to arrive. So we inquired of our waitress, who upon checking on it let us know that the chef was juggling alot at once and accidentally burnt it and it would take an hour to remake it. (seriously??) We passed. It seemed to take a REALLY long time to get our food out, as we were watching the people who came in after us get their orders. Ours finally arrived. The food it's self was good. We all agreed my Macadamia Nut Chicken was the favorite. Since we were there for a birthday we ordered dessert. 4 different types. We were notified they were out of the bread pudding, the waitress was very apologetic about it. We watched as other table got desserts while we sat there. We started getting nervous as it's now after 2:30p. After waiting 15 minutes the desserts arrived (all but the chocolate cake which we were told was being frosted). The desserts were okay. We all agreed the Butter Cake is the only one we'd get again. At 2:45p we had to ask for our check. Half the family left so that the flight wasn't missed and we agreed we'd settle up later.
Although I understand we were a party of 8, I would say the service (not necessarily the waitresses fault) was extremely slow. The entrees were good, but for a meal that came to over $275 for the family, I think we'll go elsewhere next time. I do want to note that they did give us a $15 discount for the burnt appetizer and lack of dessert (though we had to point out they still charged us for the appetizer so they could remove it).
Rrose, we clearly missed the mark on this visit. Please reach out to Ellyn (AM) at 480.429.5426 so we can discuss your visit and earn back your trust. We would love to have the opportunity to host you and your guests again.
My wife and I love going here, we have been going to Kona for years. Definitely great place to be good food and ambiance. The food price has come up a bit and also the happy hours for us don’t work like they use to since they changed.
Hello! Thank you for the high star rating! We look forward to seeing you and your wife next time!
Our waitress was not attentive - we had empty water glasses that were never filled, she forgot drink orders, and had us hand her heavy dishes. I had made reservations well in advance, our table was not ready when we arrived (the restaurant was not busy) and we were then sat right in front of the kitchen where the chefs were yelling at each other. That as well as a hefty bill ($20 for a burger?) only added to the frustrating experience. I have been to this restaurant many times and the service has steadily gone downhill. We will not return.
LA321, We are so sorry to hear about your negative experience here at Kona Grill. This is unusual as we take pride in our exceptional guest experiences. Please reach out to Ellyn(AM) at 480.429.5426
We had a great server. Food was delicious although a bit overpriced.
Thank you for taking the time to give us 5 stars!
Our meals at Kona Grill were outstanding!! The server had a positive attitude and made our time at KG enjoyable. Only drawback was that the restaurant was busy and it took longer than expected for our food to be served. Will go back again in the future!!
Thank you for the high star rating! We look forward to your next visit so we can earn that 5th star!
It was honestly not as great as I wanted. Got a steak that was 80% gristle. Once finished eating it took 15 minutes to get the check after asking for it. I was hoping it was going to be a bit fancier for the price.
DarianB, thank you for the honest feedback and taking the time to leave a review. These concerns will be addressed so we can make your future visit 5 stars. Please reach out to Ellyn(AM) 480.429.5426
Kona Grill is one of our favorite places to go as a couple or as a family. We have always had great food and a great experience. The servers and staff we have had seem to naturally care about our experience and always make us feel welcome as if we are the only table they are serving.
NEFans, we are pleased to hear that we are part of your regular dining spots! We looks forward to seeing you and your guests very soon! Thank you for the 5 stars!
Food was great. The service was very slow. Possibly short staff a problem most places are having right now.
Food and service was good. The Avocado egg rolls and chicken stir-fry tasted fresh and were delicious. The biggest disappointment for us was the cleanliness, or lack thereof. The room they sat us in honestly smelled damp and reminded me of the smell you’d find in a dog kennel/dog boarding facility. The tables also had slits in them where a bunch of food and crumbs from previous guests had accumulated. We would not return to this place based on the cleanliness factor alone,
We come here a lot at least 2-4 times per month on the weekends. We brought some friends here that were here a few years ago and had a bad experience so I thought we’d take them out and show them why we come here so often. We sat on the Patio and maybe that was the problem. We waited for 45 minutes for our apps and then everything came out all at once. Our waiter was good but we waited so long for refills or another drink and even to pay. Sadly it was not the experience I wanted our friends to experience. If we had to wait that long all the time we would not be coming here anymore.
Arrived on time and was told to wait "just a few minutes" while the lobby filled with people in line for takeout. Some had been waiting for 30 minutes. I asked to be seated as the restaurant appeared to have plenty of seating and my son was on crutches from recent knee surgery. I was seated 20 minutes after my reservation and left to sit at a booth for another 10 before we decided to leave.
Kona was one of our favorite restaurants pre-COVID. With lots of consideration for the difficult environment they are operating in, they need to find a way to do better or close the doors until that is possible.
Overpriced menus for Mother’s Day given Kona was understaffed and took over an hour to get our food after ordering. Had two people wait on us which we hardly ever saw. Happy to pay more on Mother’s Day if I can get the same level of service. Based on the level of service which was poor they should charge happy hour prices or only fill the tables they know they have staff to cover.
Our waitress was amazing. But you could tell they upped their prices and changed their menu. 30 minute wait for a table even AFTER having reservations.
Went to Kona for my Mother’s Day dinner. Waited 45 minutes for my drink. We ordered an appetizer which came after our main meal was served (and several reminders). Our food was not good. My husband’s hamburger was the same as my son’s. My son ordered 2 kids sliders off the children’s menu and my husband’s hamburger was just 2 kids slider stacked together. My other son ordered a steak and couldn’t even eat it.
I was so disappointed. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants and after the food and especially the poor service, I don’t know if I will ever return. Put a damper on my Mother’s Day.
It was Mother’s Day. We had reservations which I made for my daughter and me weeks ago. While I’m the mom, I know she likes Kona. Plus they have all day Happy Hour on Sunday’. Unfortunately, we were seated at a back table as shifts were changing. So service was extremely slow. Our waitress had not been informed about the Mother’s Day menu and didn’t even know about the two special rose’ they were offering on MD. Our table was sticky with food and utensils from some party before us scattered on the floor. I actually stepped and slid on a French fry no busser had attempted to clean up. The floor was disgusting all around my chair and table.
The food was nearly double their typical non Happy Hour price and they weren’t offering HH at all, just a very limited menu. From sitting down to getting my sparkling rose took about 15 minutes. They also offered moms wilted roses at the hostess check in and the hosts hadn’t added water to the pail of roses. My rose stem was dry as a bone. They were no longer perky but sad, dying roses. I got the waitress to bring us water and I put my wilted rose in my drinking glass.
Our meal for two consisted of a hamburger, one glass of wine, calamari appetizer and a rainbow sushi. Our bill was almost $100. I had to run our waitress down because she was nowhere to be found and asked for our check and take home bag. My sushi was fresh and the calamari was nice but it came w one little slice of lemon and barely any aioli sauce so I had to ask for more, which they obliged.
It was very disappointing overall, and I like Kona Grill. Made for a crappy Mother’s Day. In the future, their website should be very, very clear that their typical wonderful HH would not be served that day. I won’t go back for a special occasion ever again.
While we expected a delay due to Mother's day, we were shocked that it took over 1 hour to get our food and the restaurant appeared to be at half capacity. My order was wrong. The price increases in food since we were there last were so large and portions reduced. We won't be going back despite it being a former favorite place to go.
Limited overpriced menu. We waited an hour for a soup and a salad and an appetizer. The manager's excuse was "We didn't think we'd be this busy." I will not eat there again!
Service was awful. Food was over priced & came out cold & at different times for our group.
Prices were increased by $3-$4 dollars per item because it was Mother’s Day...Taking advantage of their customers is shameful. Also, sushi was pre-rolled and warm...yuck...and they served frozen potstickers out of a box/bag...not the usual delicious ones they make and they were $17???? Terrible Mother’s Day experience!
Waiter was very kind and understanding. We left after not receiving our appetizer for over an hour. Tables around us were experiencing similar delays. Not sure if staff is short or what but it was too long to wait, especially with kids.
The food took over an hour to reach us. The prices were higher then usual from the times I been there before.
NEVER GOING BACK! May 9, 2021: 1 - 40 minutes to receive appetizers...only one (calamari) of two came out at that time, waiter said they had to re-do the edamame, 10 minutes later it came out (sadly) with no salt...it's essentially steamed beans...how do you screw that up? 2 - After being there for 66 minutes our two entrees came out. The salmon was fine but the NY Strip...I had no idea meat could be tasteless. Seriously, it had absolutely no taste other than the pepper. The side of "crispy garlic potatoes" was nothing more than frozen store bought potato nuggets. All this for $133 (includes 2 cocktails) If there were a way to give less than a one star rating we would. Oh, the service...incredibly slow. We've been coming here for the past 10 years. Over the past year we've seen a marked decline in service and quality. Never going back!
I have loved Kona for years. HOWEVER, something very wrong is happening there now. Went for Mother's Day brunch with 8 adults. It took almost 3 hours to receive our order. Quality of the food was not up to par, no soy sauce with the sushi rolls (didn't ask for it as it would have taken another 30 minutes to receive). Specials of lobster potstickers that tasted like a lemon and clam chowder that had so much bacon in it, I had to remove in order to see it was clam chowder. Also, the price point was $10 for a cup that was only filled half way up. Manager was notified of our displeasure but only offered drinks as a comp--heavens, we had been drinking while waiting for our food for 3 hours--not interested in anymore. Won't be back for a long, long time.
We were here for Mother’s Day, the server was very nice but it took a really long time to get our food... when it did come they didn’t bring my moms meal at the same time.... it was at least 10 minutes between when the rest of the table got food and when my mom finally got here. That was disappointing. The manager came to ask how things were & we told him not great... he offered us a free desert but it took so long to get that we finally just asked the server if we could get it to go. the food was ok, but not treat. My dad ordered pad Thai and asked for it to be spicy, it was not spicy at all. The lobster avocado toast was not great and the bread was really hard and tough to eat. We were there for 2.5 hours and spent a couple hundred dollars... overall it was pretty disappointing.
Made the reservation for lunch on Mother's Day not realizing it was brunch only. Extremely pricey and the food wasn't as good as breakfast specialty restaurants in the area. We will be back for the regular menu, but not for brunch.
Mother’s Day. Asked three times for a coffee refill. Food dishes were not appealing and omelet had undefined taste. Potatoes were soggy and greasy. Way overpriced for revived value. Mom wasn’t provided a rose upon departure.
We requested the patio in our reservation and didn't get one when we checked in. Our son ordered the fluffy pancakes and he got 3 mini pancake muffins. His meal costed $15 while his whole plate couldn't have cost more than $5.
Very disappointing Mother’s Day breakfast. Omelette had no garnish, no flavor, tasted exactly like something I’d make at home. Kids’ breakfast included three “waffles” that were the size of a quarter, and looked more like a mini-muffin. What happened to you, Kona?
Won’t be back.
food was good, but sitting in a booth with the guy in back of me pushing against my seat was not relaxing.
Service extremely slow. Food did not come out fresh. Took a very long time to get drinks. Won't be back anytime soon.
Mother’s Day supper
Service was amazing and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend.
The best happy hour around!!
Our server was fantastic! Helpful and fun.
Just started offering brunch so gave it a try. Great food, the steak and eggs choice was HUGE. Great drinks, Stephanie provided excellent service.
Had a fun night prior to a comedy show. Barb was a very kind server.
