    Our server was great, on top of our food and drink orders and was helpful when we were having trouble deciding what to order! I wish that the menu and pricing would stay consistent. Every time we go, something has been taken off the menu or something costs 2x what it used to. The happy hour menu is useless now.

    Reservation was made to celebrate Father’s Day and a birthday brunch. Terrible service from the moment we were seated. The server was not ready to serve. Late in taking drink order, getting drinks (water/coffee/juice) was another wait, I had to get the attention of what seamed to be manager to bring our drinks. The first round of coffee was not fresh, another wait for spoons to stir in coffee creamer. Coffee was close to room temperature plus the cold creamer made it much less enjoyable. Asked “manager” for a fresh cup of coffee and brought out the second round to my in law and spouse, I had to wait again for my fresh cup of coffee. Food came out in a reasonable time. Kids enjoyed their bento boxes. French toast were good. Scrambled eggs did not look appetizing due to a grayish/green color mixed in them and sent them back. The second round of scrambled eggs looked much better, unfortunately they didn’t have any seasoning. Steak and eggs were good minus the scrambled eggs again and half way through my meal, found a small hair in my salad. This visit was nothing more than disappointing and the place was not under staffed to blame the terrible service on. $140 for terrible service and not so good food. Go to Cheesecake Factory instead.

    The happy hour chicken bbq pizza, pot stickers, and avocado egg rolls were excellent. The drinks were suppose to be happy hour prices in the entire restaurant but they were not. Ask before you order, even though I did, I was still charged more. The restaurant is very nice and the wait staff friendly and they tried their best.

    The restaurant had our table ready for our party of 10. The server was very attentive and wanted to make sure everything was right especially since we were celebrating a graduation. The food was great and came at a good pace given that it was a Saturday evening during graduation season. Overall, great experience.

    Ordered calamari, it was hard and paperlike. It was presented on shredded iceberg lettuce which made the pieces wet. Steaks came out with clumped butter which wouldn't melt because the steaks were cold. The brussel sprouts were over cooked. Macaroni was dry on top as if it had been sitting a while. Service was acceptable. It was loud due to a dj, but the music was good.

    We were seated at 1:30 for our 1:15 reservation. There was a DJ which made it really loud, an odd choice for Mothers Day. The service was very slow, could’ve been due to MD, and the food was decent but it didn’t meet the quality for the price. The edamame appetizer angry version was very flavorful, a. The kids chicken bento was really good. The prime rib was undercooked quite a bit, and the rest of the food was good, just not in proportion to price. We may try again on a non holiday and see if it’s better.

    I understand I dined on a very busy day as it was lunch time on Mother’s Day so I assume there will be hiccups as there likely are at any busy restaurant. However, I made a reservation online almost a week out and still had to wait about 30 mins to be seated. Then once we finally got settled and ordered food. It took them about an hour to get my entree to me. The server offered to comp another drink or a dessert. But by that time I had already had two drinks which is typically my limit and I had brought a cake to share with the table so we had no need to order dessert. I don’t know why they couldn’t just comp one of the drinks I had already ordered? Our server was very kind and did make sure to keep us updated as it seemed like forever before anyone got their food so I certainly appreciate her keeping us posted. I’m sure she was frustrated with the kitchen as well. I ordered the eggs Benedict from the brunch menu. The Benedict part was very good however the fingerling potatoes had no flavor and the asparagus were very salty. And don’t even get my started on the incredibly loud, inappropriate music! They had a DJ setup in the bar area and he was blaring explicit music on a family holiday during lunch hour while it was full of young children! I felt like I was at the club, it was insane and so loud I couldn’t even have a conversation with the person across the table from me! This was my first experience and probably my last.

    Mother's Day lunch. Valeria was very good server. Got a cinnamon bun monkey bread type thing as an app along with lobster potstickers. Sent bun back. A bit overdone on outside, not sweet, too bready, no icing. Potstickers were good. My entree of the chili salmon and fried rice and Brussel sprouts was delicious. Food seemed to take an abnormally and annoyingly long time to arrive but it was busy. Though when we got there it was 1/2 to 2/3 full and the table next to us that came significantly after ordered and were halfway through their meal before we got ours. Food arrived just as I complained and some type of manager was explaining why it was slow with a slight attitude to me but food arrived as we were talking. My expectation of situations like that is maybe to acknowledge and sympathize and maybe offer a small thing like a beverage or an app or something. Rest of food was okay. Not overwhelming. The lobster avocado toast was okay. Anyway overall an okay experience. Overall prices a bit much but we are in a post COVID era and people are trying to catch up. However I'd bet money the prices don't come back down.

    The lettuce wraps,sushi, and drinks were great! Our server was so sweet and informative, all of the staff we countered seemed happy to be there. Good customer service made up for the food. The although the steak was tender and cooked to the perfect temperature it didn’t have any salt or pepper, be sure to ask for the sautéed onions and mushrooms and some salt and pepper. The potatoes didn’t have any seasoning and I wouldn’t get the Mac &cheese. I’ve eaten brunch here it was good, I’d recommend things like the Kobe sliders, flatbread, sushi, etc.

    The meal was delicious. The appetizer (dumplings) came cold and were disappointing for the price. The ribs were delicious and so were all the sides that accompanied: a delicious succotash with jalapeños, roasted potatoes and coleslaw. The carrot cake was outstanding and huge.

    Had outside reservations, tried to seat us inside at a high top. Place was not busy. Server seemed disengaged. Forgot to bring lime twice for drink. Food was brought out at individual times vs all together. One of our meals was delayed which we were notified. Brussel sprouts were tasteless. I asked for salt and was given a condiment container full of salt. He brought the check back and just sat it on the table and walked away. Generally, I give places a second chance but I would not return to this location.

    Food took very long only to find out that out order was entered incorrectly so we had to wait longer for out meal. Once the meal came out, my salmon was burned. I like seared salmon but this salmon tasted charred. I sent the food back and ended up not eating. My husband's food was fine once it finally came out.

    Front desk girl with green hair really rude. Walked in she said it be an 1hr 15 min wait to run me an my party out. So I left to my car made a reservation for 15 minutes later and got a table. I understand reservations are almost required but I’ve been going to Kona for 7 years, for their sake bombs. Tell the hostess to not run people out just cause they don’t have reservations. What about first timers who don’t know, Our bill was +100 y’all could of lost out and there was plenty of tables so it was almost insulting to run us out like that.

    Ordered the Brainiac, and it was burned on the outside, but cold on the inside. We also ordered 2 all Americans and a Macadamia Nut French Toast. The eggs on the all American were not as we ordered and running, and the sausages were burned. The potatoes were the only pleasant part of the meal. The Brainiac was removed from bill, even so not worth $55 for this meal.
