    Wanted a turkey dinner and opted for Kona Gril's Thanksgiving special. Ambience was lovely and server cheerful ad competent. Food was delivered warm but not hot on oval plate: three or four small slices of turkey, a small ice cream scoop size of good dressing, a larger ice cream size scoop of mashed potatoes, green beans and about 2T of tasty but thin and watery cranberry dressing. It was disappointing and was much like what you'd expect at a cafeteria setting. Wish we had overcome our nostalgia for turkey and simply ordered off the menu.

    Pretty slow night and the service was not very good. Forgetting about silverware, plates, etc. Ordered sushi rolls and salad and the food took about 25/30 minutes. And the for the price, I was expecting a much better experience. Very disappointing. Will not be going back.

    Had a few people from the reservation running about 5 minutes late and called to notify. The woman on the phone was really rude and acted like she was going to cancel our reservation. Once we got there we waited over 30 minutes just to put in our drink orders. They did not have enough staff to accommodate the restaurant, let alone our party. The sushi came out a good 30 minutes after the steaks people ordered. Was so loud in there you had to yell just to have a conversation with someone two seats away. Overall not a place I would go with a big party, and I honestly won’t even go back with a small party either. Our waiter was very kind and was doing his best, I don’t fault him, but you’re better off to go somewhere else!

    Busy Saturday…. Service staff was short handed, so service was poor - however the food was very good. This location needs an update. Seat covers had large rips, carpet is with, general housekeeping could be better

    Someone had the bright idea of leaving the windows open to the outside seating this evening. The high temperature today was in the mid 30’s. We were sat at a table near the windows where it was freezing. We asked our waiter to move us. He totally understood and was freezing himself. The manager said we couldn’t be moved but he did it anyway. My guardian angel. I hope he didn’t get into trouble. After we moved the windows were closed. Could have been an easier solution for everyone. Questioning the decision making skills of the manager.

    We are longtime patrons of Kona Grill Cherry Creek. Last night was the third or fourth time this year that was disappointing. Each time the service has been awful. Long wait times for food. At one point, we noticed a man fell asleep - actually laid his head down on table and took a nap - while waiting. We ordered grilled chicken/rice plate and sushi. We waited close to 40 mins. No offer for a water refill. No update ever provided. At one point we saw staff who bus tables serve food. It was a bit of a madhouse. To top it off, we ordered a slice of carrot cake. It was half warm, half frozen and the cost for one piece was $14. This used to be a family favorite restaurant. We've decided it's time to find something new.

    I arrived at the host stand and stood there for over 5 minutes and not one (out of the three) people greeted me. Not until my husband arrived and got someone’s attention did anyone pay attention to us. Heaters outside were out of propane and utterly useless. Our waitress worked hard to make up for the chaos inside the restaurant. I don’t know when I’ll return.

    Unfortunately the food is way overpriced and mediocre at best. My grandson had 3 kinds of sashimi and it cost $65 for his meal. Service was sporadic and confusing with 3 different servers. The poke bowl was overly sauced so the seafood taste was lost. Very dissatisfied.

    We had horrible service and staff didn’t know where to seat us or who was helping us. Despite having two wait staff at one point we had to wait 30 minute even for water or to take our order. Didn’t even get our wine that we preordered for 45 minutes. Then she didn’t realize what was included in the date night menu. It wasn’t even busy but absolutely the worst service luckily the food was great!

    Don't bother, for the prices I would have expected better quality food. (the fries were on par with McDonalds) The kitchen was slammed when we went so ticket times broke an hour and by the time we got the food it was lukewarm. Management was ineffective at best, incompetent at worst. They did nothing to help the situation, at its busiest we didn't even see any managers walking the floor. It didn't seem like management had any processes in place, the staff didn't seem to have much direction with what they were doing, which isn't their fault. The sushi bar killed it, their food was out promptly and it looked good, which was disappointing for those of us that ordered other items off the menu. The server also saved the experience as much as he could, he warned us about the kitchen ahead of time and did his best to try and make the situation better despite being new. The blame for this falls solely on management, and until there's a change there I wouldn't waste my time or money again.

    It took an hour to get our food and our kids didn’t get their food until 30 minutes after our dinner which we obviously were already done. The kids were crying and miserable and even after taking to the manager still didn’t seem to have any sense of urgency. They also messed up on drinks and hardly came by to check on us. Never going back.

    Our server was everywhere. Said some weird comments, wasn’t really a people person. Had to ask several times for things. Meal was missing things. She continued to forget requests and constantly blamed it on being busy. Was unfortunate because we’ve never had bad service and usually absolutely love our time dining in there.

    We have come here a lot, but this last time was disappointing. I like the salmon with chili sauce and they have modified this dish and made it terrible. The sauce was not as tangy as it use to be, the fried rice use to have some small shrimp in it but that has been removed and it use to come with a vegetable that's been removed and to add that to the dish costs $9!!. The other guests meals were better, pistachio coated chicken, pumpkin tortellini with lobster and fried rice with chicken (even though she had ordered shrimp). Deserts were good. As usual, the place is way too loud and you have to yell at each other to carry on a conversation. . . I don't know that we'll be coming back again.

    Good food, service was super slow. Our server was very nice. I just think he had way too many tables. There were 3 hosts just standing at the host stand and a manager. I would think the staff would offer to help him out (run food or drinks). But overall, we had a nice time

    We were there for brunch; bottomless mimosas had a long wait between mimosas. We ordered Asian Salad with crusted chicken, the chicken was old and cold and not enough dressing, very disappointed in that, typically we get this every time we go there.

    Second year in a row I have come to Kona Grill for my birthday dinner. The ambiance is great, full of energy and great music. The food was delicious and there are some many great options, and beautifully presented on the plate. Our server did a great job. Only complaint was she forgot to bring our soy, wasabi and ginger, but we waved down a busier and he was quick to help us and very polite. Will definitely be back, but hopefully sooner!
