The tomato soup was served at room temperature with soggy croutons. The sliders were tasty but served at room temperature and the fries were simply cold. Cold fries are the worst! The dessert was good. We sat without eating utensils for a while. Refills on water was not the norm. Hence the overall experience was just fair. On a positive note our waitress was cordial. The ambiance was warm, welcoming, and a nice place to hang out if you are not concern about eating a hot meal in a timely fashion.

Date night special was good, meatballs were very tasty, but were over done for our tastes. The 12 oz rib eye was flavorful but a little on the tough side. The Korean spiced ribs were tasty but again they were over cooked and dry.

Upon entering the restaurant a sharp edge on the front door caught my toe. My toenail was ripped off and my toe was sliced open in 2 places. I was in pain and limped to our table. I was given a bandaid and alcohol wipe, when I asked for them, but no one seemed at all concerned that I was bleeding everywhere. The manager stopped by at some point to ask how everything was, and we told him about the door. He said, “hmmm, I may need to take a picture of that”, and then we never saw him the rest of the evening. Not a single follow up to see if I was okay.

We were seated outdoor at a fire pit, which was a little awkward because the table was super low and hard to eat. There was also no easy place to put the appetizers. We worked around this, but would have preferred an actual table. The table was not well cleaned and completely overrun with ants.

Our server was very sweet, but completely overwhelmed. Our appetizer came out after we were already eating our meal. We had to request silverware several times, and even then not enough was brought for our party. My husband requested a napkin, since he was never brought silverware, and was given a small beverage napkin.

The food itself was excellent. A bit on the pricey side, but really flavorful. Overall we left disappointed as we expect better service when we spend $200+ for a family dinner out.

We were a party of 6 with a reservation. We were seated outside
It was hot and muggy with occasional showers. We asked if there were fans and told no. Our server Gabe was nice. But was inattentive to say the least. A round of drinks took more than 30 minutes. We ordered 3 appetizers and two came in a reasonable amount of time. The 3rd app had to be asked for repeatedly. We had to ask for silverware & napkins after apps arrived. Hot food came out cool and cold food was room temp

I do not understand how food has been made, but every bite must be in Michelin list.
Perfect meal, perfect cooking, attention to all our requests...
The Best Place in Atlanta.
Even though it was crowded and noisy, but still very well organized.

The sushi was ok but the crab cakes were overcooked and tough and not served hot.
The restaurant was noisy so we sat outside but they had the misters on so it sprayed what felt like dirty water constantly over my table and me. Didn't do much for my hairdo!
Overall, not a great experience.

Kona Grill is suffering. The service was terrible and it appears there is no quality control on what is coming out of the kitchen. The wait staff all seem new and none of them seem to have been trained.
I have been here 5 or 6 times and this was by far the worst. I am not sure what happened to this place but they are not the cheapest place but they are by far the worst when it comes to service and value.
I would steer clear.

So I have been here serval times and for the most part everything is good. This visit just seemed to be bad overall. We did get seated on time, waitress did pretty good given the circumstance, but the Kitchen and the food runners were struggling. All our food was cold when it got to the table, one of the orders was not even complete., The manager did attempt to make it right but the kitchen still struggled and made it worse.
