    Good tasting salad. The happy hour old fashioned was not good. Had to send it back. Too much simple syrup and sugar and was not drinkable.

    When I made reservation I added note to reservation that it was our 31st anniversary. We went for the date night “experience” and even reserved the table under that experience. We had to ask the serve about date night experience, because we were just given menus. We finally got the menu for date night after waiting an additional 10 minutes. The only dessert that was offered was cheese cake. I asked if I could change it, because when I made reservation it stated “ Coffee Bread Pudding & a shot of Bailey's”. We were not given either one and had to just go with cheesecake. Meal was good, but the whole “experience” was nothing special like it’s reads when you make reservation. We could of just ordered off the regular menu and gone somewhere else that at least acknowledge anniversary.

    We got to the restaurant and were sat. No server came to our table for 20 minutes. They were not busy. They were talking to each other at the server station and at the bar. After 25 minutes we left with no one ever coming to our table or anyone at the front desk when we walked out. RA sushi used to take the cake for worst service in the area but they have recently improved while Kona has gotten worse and worse. They need new staff.

    This is a standard spot for us and we came here for drinks, appetizer, dinner and dessert. We had sushi/sashimi and it, as always, was amazing. We had the not-triple brownie for dessert and it was spectacular (though I needed coffee to breakup the sweet). The reason I rated food low was NOT for the food but the drinks. I always call Blue Moon, butter beer (as a fan of Harry Potter) because it has a light smell and taste of butter (especially depending on the type of water used for the tap hard/soft). It's tasty but not what I wanted so I ordered the Sam Adams Seasonal (Summer Ale) as it's more lemon/lime. When it got to the table even the smell was wrong. It smelled like butter beer. I explained to our server that something was not right (maybe the taps had been swapped). She got another (and said she watched them poor it) but it tasted the same. So I asked here to bring me a sample of Blue Moon. The sample didn't taste like Blue Moon and instead tasted like the Summer Ale. Here's the rub. Blue Moon and Summer Ale are different prices. I ordered the higher priced one but got served the lower priced one. Needless to say, I was concerned, not just for my bill, but anyone else ordering these. Now, for the best part. Our server; Jody. OMG! She was more than awesome. Amazingly personable, funny and, definitely helpful. Now, I didn't drink any beer (outside of trying to figure out what was what). She didn't charge me for them and was absolutely understanding of what may have been happening. Of course, we'll be back as our experience, outside of the swapped drinks, was more than fun. Thank you to Jody for being so understanding and making our experience perfect.

    Kona Grill - OakbrookResponded on August 2, 2022Thank you for this amazing review! I will make sure to tell Jody about this experience! We hope to see you soon!

    I was disappointed that the same dish that I have always ordered, which is the Sea Bass, was changed whereby the Sea Bass which used to come with Bok Choy and fried rice with ham and pineapple, now comes only with Bok Choy. If you want fried rice with ham or pineapple, each will cost you an additional eight dollars per order.

    My husband and I made a reservation for 2 for our first date night here on 7/16. We were sat outside and we had to wait 25 mins for a waiter to take our drink order. We both know times are hard but wait staff passed us multiple times and nothing. Tons of dirty tables with plates on them all around us and it was 8pm and not super busy. One table of 4 sat after us and got their appetizer and dinner before we got our drinks. The food was actually very good we got beer, margaritas for drinks. Food we got the potstickers, surf and turf ribeye and poke bowl. While waiting for our food the table next to us was being clean and glass shattered all over me, it was fine accidents happen…then after paying our $140 bill of which we always tip 20% my husband went to go wash his hands before we left and realize the chair he had sat on had BBQ sauce on it from a precious table…his pants had BBQ all over the bottom. I would recommend take out for this location because food is good, but the service was terrible!
