    There were some very loud individuals at several different tables, they were there when we arrived and had been there 2 hours at that point according to the host, when we left after 2 hours of dining they were still there. This would total them being there for over 4 hours and it was clear several tables had been over served alcohol due to their behavior, which did not make for a pleasant dining experience.

    Plagued with throughout issues in the kitchen, pretty much every time we come. An hour for sushi and even though they said there was a rush, we arrived at the end of the rush and soon after we ordered, about 1/3 of the tables wrapped up and left. Server didn’t check during our wait and wasn’t visible at all. Had to ask manager for water who looked as disoriented as the rest. Egg rolls were clearly over cooked and no one asked if they were ok. Sushi and other items tasted great, but server didn’t ask after delivery. Table wasn’t cleared and reset for sushi either, so we had to watch it sit on the table while they got chopsticks etc. same problems over the years, even before pandemic. We forget them and try again, mostly because the food is tasty and value is good.

    Music was too loud to enjoy conversation with a friend. Very annoying. Wouldn’t recommend as the noise takes away from the ambiance of the food and decor.

    I had a family lunch. And I come very often to Kona Grill Denver. Unfortunately it took 30 min to get a glass of water and drinks , I had to ask the manager for help to get the drinks. And when the food arrived, the salad was off. And the fish tasted like an old fish. Despite of given the directions to the waitress, the steak came overdone when we asked for rare. It was not a pleasant experience!

    First steak looked good but was overcooked. Second steak was way under cooked and was missing the butter on top (it was not sent back) The side of Mac & Cheese was tiny and not worth the $9.

    The sea bass was a little fatty or some kind of batter was on the side of it. Otherwise it was good. My friend ordered the Sweet & Bleu salad with chicken and shrimp. I sampled and it was very good. I'll definitely order it next time. Very energetic crowd.

    Food and service were fine, but the music was so loud it was difficult to have a conversation. This was a Thursday 645pm reservation not late on a Saturday. Value overall was just ok, but $14 for desserts??!! Granted, we didn’t see any, so maybe they’re big enough for 3 people, but still….

    Music during Brunch was very loud. Service was slow and manager had to be involved. Items were comped but still rough couple of hours. I'd recommend not going in first hour they are open. Don't go if conversation amongst table is important as music was very loud and requests to turn down were ignored.

    We were promised (through a promotion) Bubbles and an appetizer or dessert. Had to jump through a lot of hoops just to get the appetizer. Extremely embarrassing, we were there with friends, I finally told the manager how embarrassed I was and asked her to just drop it. I had French dip, the meat was spoiled. Everyone else’s meals were mediocre. My friend said her sushi fish was warm. We have been coming here for years, we won’t be back. $100.00 and an hour and a half I’ll never get back.

    Unfortunately! We got a server that was on the job 2-3days. Kept bring wrong food to the table I got my meal 30min later than every one in my party. They comp all the food they brought to the table that was not what we order. Still end-up paying the whole bill, after mess-up after mess-up. The food was great, but poor guy he needed more training. Once again we were there way longer than anticipated. Oh not to mention it was my Daughter's Birthday! I really want a do over on Kona.

    The host and manager at checkin were sorta blasé and rude. The music was so loud and the bpm made me feel like I was going to have a heart attack. Our waiter Caden(sp?) was very charismatic and sweet, a little forgetful but honestly - I had ptsd from the acoustics so I can only imagine trying to work in that environment. Food was delicious. Seriously conside lowering the volume and stop playing group fitness level bpm music. It was truly unsettling.

    My life long friend arrived in town w his son who I’ve never met. He was looking at Colleges in Colorado which was the reason for our dinner. I live across the street from this restaurant, and have tried to make this out local spot however the service we received is either great or horrible. Our food took forever to arrive, and it came in the wrong order. Dinner, before appetizers. When you bring it to the staffs attention they look helpless, and only say sorry. Their response is if you want to yell at a manager we would completely understand. Well, this is the last thing I wanted to do—-we were having a great time, despite this beautiful restaurants ability to deliver basic serving abilities. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s attached to a shopping mail, but we never see the same employees or management. We will continue to go to this restaurant because if the good food, but never go on a special occasion. The experience is hit-n-miss every time.

    I (Jim Upton) reserved a group of 7 for Friday Aug 13 at 4:30 Multiple mistakes with the orders and the waitress could have been better. I upgraded the Surf & Turf meat to be medium rare Wagu. The meat arrived way overcooked, (well done if not charred), it was hard to the touch and NOT a wagu cut - it was roughly the dimensions of an iPhone. Kona had to get another piece and start over. My brother in-law ordered a medium rare filet, it was way overcooked also and had to get another one. I asked our waitress to recommend an upgrade on the the tequila and she recommended the two cheapest brand I can think of. She had other missteps and tried to make it all sound funny and cool that our orders were so poorly managed I have always liked Kona; but not anymore and will not recommend it. .
