Just ate there a couple weeks ago. Food and service were pretty good, but I was surprised by how small my entrée was. I am used to small portions, and I have grown to expect that when we travel to the US the portion sizes will be way too big. I had the curried lamb chops at Kona, and while the taste was good and it was enough to fill me (especially as I ate lots of the amazing bread to start), it would not have filled someone with a bigger appetite. So keep that in mind.

We eat there every WDW vacation. We like the menu and like visiting the Poly. We always program in time before or after dinner to walk around the resort. It makes for a very nice evening.

I've never noticed portion sizes being small, but I've never had the entree the PP mentioned.

Kona for dinner is a must for us every trip. I plan a 7pm dinner so that we can watch the fireworks from the Poly Beach afterwards.

We love it, but it does appear the menu has changed since we last went. They took off our 2 favorite dishes (The Tuna Oscar & The Coconut Chicken), so I'm hoping it will still be good when we go in a few weeks!

After only going for breakfast and lunch for a few years, we returned to Kona for dinner this past April. Loved it!

I've never been, but on my recent trip I had a late reservation for 'Ohana and hadn't eaten anything but a doughnut all day, and the smell of Kona was so alluring. I'm definitely going to hit it up next time.

We dined there as a walk up and were very pleased. Great meal, great service and very little wait. I made an ADR for DD and I for next month and am looking forward to it.

Give it a try! This is the only other restaurant that DBf has requested in the plan other than Ohana year after year. He loves the bread, butter and the steak!

We had a wonderful dinner there. Ambiance isn't great - since it's located right off the lobby - but food was absolutely delicious and prices were reasonable (for Disney dining). I highly recommend it!
