    Food has become bland overtime. They changed their recipe for the calamari and it wasn’t good anymore. The sushi rice was dry.

    The food was absolutely terrible. Potstickers had zero flavor and the crunchy spicy tuna rolls had actually smothered in a cold. Cold and refrigerated, not fresh, just awful. I will not be going back.

    The music was outstanding today. I think the DJ changed his playlist. Also, it would be nice if the workers at Kona parked further away from the restaurant or in the garage to allow patrons to park closer. I see workers parking close to the restaurant and then walking into the restaurant right ahead of me.

    Patio seating was great -- pleasant and spacious Service was so-so. Never refilled our waters. Otherwise server was excellent. Handled the massively underdone steak well (it went back immediately). Food was disappointing. everything was too salty. The Filet was dramatically underdone (ordered med-rare, got very-rare) When the new Filet arrived is was way over cooked (past well-done). Mashed potatoes were gluey. Brussel Sprouts were *very* chewy and not very flavorful. NY Strip steak was very good. Sushi roll was bland and had too much mayo. Don't think we'll be back. For the price I expected better.

    Kona Grill - OakbrookResponded on June 20, 2022Sterling, Our food quality is our number one priority here at Kona and I am sorry we weren't able to deliver the quality of food we both expect. Please reach out to my email at your earliest convenience and let's see how we can turn this experience around. GM.oakbrook@konagrill.co Mario M

    My two items that I most anted to order and really looed forward to eating for my birthday dinner out were COMPLEELY RUINED BY THE CHEF ADDING LOTS OF HOT SPICES where they definitely did not belong, or the menu did not state, nor mention that those items were spicy at all. For example my set of sushi rolls, I think that they were titled " Snow Tiger" or "Sunrise" or something like that. Anyways those particular slices of sushi were only supposed to contain some tempura shrimp, avocado, and cucumber, but the menu NEVER MENTIONED THAT THIS SUSHI ROLL WAS TOBE SPICY WHATEVER. yet the chef just inadvertently added some red pepper fine powder which resembled some Mexican "TAHIJN" Chili Lime, and Sea Salt Seasoning sprinkled all over my sushi rolls.

    Decent food (not great), but certainly not worth the money. For example, what was supposed to be shrimp teriyaki was closer to tiny grilled shrimplets with some kind of sauce. It tasted OK, but it was certainly not comparable to shrimp teriyaki. And $20 for a sushi roll? Not worth it. There were a few unusual menu items (like avocado egg rolls) that were appealing, but more for their uniqueness than their flavor. Good atmosphere for a bar, but not for a meal with conversation. Took some guests to lunch for an informal job interview— there was a live DJ playing dance music at 80 decibels. Why?

    We’re from the city and needed to pick up something from the mall out here and after a reservation search we decided to try out this chain for the first time. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and cook of the food. For apps we got the ribeye meatballs served over miso mashed potatoes (delicious but meatball was maybe a little salty, wish there was a tad more of the sweet and savory pickled garnish) and the calamari which had a nice light fry and a great dipping sauce. For our entrees we got two surf and turfs which includes a sushi roll, choice steak, choice of potato, and sautéed green beans. The ribeye has a far superior beefy flavor over the NY strip but both were cooked a perfect medium rare with a nice grill char. Order some shoyu cream to dip your crispy potatoes; the included green beans were served hot but still perfectly crunchy, a nice palate cleanser to cut the richness. I would order the steaks again but pass on the sushi if we wanted appetizers. It was just a bit much after two apps and two sides. The spider roll (creamy, savory) and sunset roll (sweet, fresh) are nice if you want sushi. We might not ever have a chance to dine here again but definitely will if ever in the area! I also liked the decor- it wasn’t stuffy and felt upscale but comfortable. Can’t remember our server’s name but he was cheerful, attentive and on point even though he clearly had a lot of tables. Checked in on us whenever we got food to the table and was timely with drink refills. It is just a bit pricey with most apps nearing $20. The surf and turf is a *great* value if ordered alone. Again, so pleasantly surprised how great this place was. If you’re in the area and want a nicer, paced meal for sure stop in!

    Kona Grill - OakbrookResponded on June 6, 2022Thank you for this amazing feedback!! I will pass this information along to my staff and chef's!! Hope to see you soon, next time you're in town!!

    The date night menu was a good value. We were seated in a indoor/patio dining room near open windows. We appreciated the hostess seating us there. We're still covid concerned. Our waiter didn't bring any water or cocktail/ wine menu. It wasn't crowded. Food came out in a timely manner. The Food could've been hotter.

    The food was good as it always is. However, the service was very very slow. Which didn’t make sense because there weren’t a lot of people in there. We waited a long time for food, drink refills and then the check. So it was annoying.
