Have not done Kona for any meal, but have done the Wave. It is one of my favorite restaurants out there. The Lamb Shank is really good there and mom loved the Steak on this front. It was my first time with Lamb and I look forward to doing lunch there on my MK day.
Four trips when I was a kid.

We prefer Kona. Personally, we just didn't care for the atmosphere of The Wave, and the food when we were there was some good, some meh. Others love it there and hate the atmosphere at Kona, so you'd have to see for yourself. The Wave has changed its menu several times since we have been so maybe it's better now. We love Kona for every meal. If you decide to try The Wave for dinner, consider Kona for breakfast or lunch.

I've had 1 good and 1 bad experience at the Wave. The good was my favorite meal of the trip! The bad was the same exact meal, but it was dry, overcooked, and flavorless. So weird!

Kona, I've had 2 excellent meals there, and one where the meal was good but the dessert has MOLDY raspberries on it. Luckily, I caught it right before my child put it in his mouth, but still gross. I know it happens, but, I just can't quite want to eat there for dessert again, yet. I will try it again one day.
