Diner Reviews
  • "We came with a vendor of ours, to express unpleasant information. The service was good (a new girl was finishing her training, and her trainer should be applauded), food was wonderful, as it usually is. We'll be back."

  • "Kona Grill is a convenient lunch option and accommodating to large group requests (separate checks!). The noise level does not allow for speaches during a group meal. A private room would be nice."

  • "This was our first visit to this restaurant. The food was outstanding. The service was slow and the place was not that crowded. They did however take off the price of my food item which took the longest to arrive at our table. We will visit again when we are downtown."

  • "Down in Baltimore as part of an 8000 person convention, and had a first rate experience at Kona....Fresh well balanced sushi and rolls and good service under the rush of convention goers. Kona is a piece of gold amongst the pyrite of Baltimore's inner harbor area."

  • "An upbeat atmosphere with excellent food this is a frequent stop for us. And, if you need a sugar rush, get the carrot cake and be prepared to share."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The pesto pasts was delish. And the butter cake was so scrumptious that it's an emergency o get back to eat it right away. The only down side was that we had a new waiter and we had to ask for bread but other than that I really enjoyed it"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Food was good... The calamari was exceptional and the beef tacos were the best thing I ate.... You can't go wrong eating here everything we had was delicious except for the miso sake sea bass. The taste of the bass was very unpleasant it had a bitter taste that rendered the dish inedible and we had to send it back!"

  • "The place was packed with people due to conference nearby, still , service was reasonable friendly and quick. Food caters to a wide audience, place was not ideal for business discussions due to noise, but hey they showed soccer on the screens...."

  • "It was Sunday evening and Fathers Day, we had a reservation but the restaurant was very crowded and loud. The appetizers of pot stickers and calamari were delicious. We had about an hour and fifteen minutes to eat and did let our server know when ordering that we were short of time. I departed after an hour and twenty minutes and my dinner had never arrived. The others who stayed said it was the slowest, worst service ever and that I was wrong to trust Trip Advisor where I had found this highly recommended restaurant. They said the meal was OK."

  • "While the sushi here was great, the chili, which should have come out first, did not arrive until 15 minutes after the sushi. my lunchtime was almost over. The waitress seemed new and timid and did not actually know the chili had not arrived until she came to check on our table 15 minutes after the sushi was served. It was a very crowded lunchtime so I will give a pass this time. The sushi was delicious and fresh so I will definitely go there again."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Hosting a party of 15, I was concerned about service however they stepped up to the challenge. The service was very good, the food was was very good and there was a large selection of entrees available with serving sizes being ample. Only drawback, the music was too loud and it was difficult to hear anyone who was not sitting in front of directly beside you."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Took a group of 8 here for girls night out. The food was ok, but the portion sizes were too small for this group, we had to go to McDonalds afterwards. The drinks hit the spot, especially the apple saki! Our waitress, Caroline was very nice and accommodating. If you want to have a quiet dinner, this is not the place! It's very noisey, which was ok for us. We are usually loud anyway. I recommend using the valet for $10. My girlfriend paid $20 to park in the garage at the Hyatt."

  • "The restaurant's manager made our night work out as planned.....We sought out Kona to celebrate my teenager's birthday and because we had had prior good dining experiences here. We thought we could get the 1/2 price appetizers during happy hour even if we sat in the dining area. When we were seated and told we could not get them 1/2 price without sitting in the bar area, I was unhappy. However, after I spoke with the manager and we moved to the booths in the bar area, the manager helped us feel better about the misunderstanding by giving us the appetizers gratis. The food was tasty and the evening ended on a high note. Now we will return again; had the manager not made us happy, we would be looking elsewhere in the future."

  • "I took a group of 5 girls here for dinner before my sister's bachelorette party. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating- they made delicious virgin drinks for the pregnant girls in the group, and were prompt with the check when we told them that we were in a rush. Everybody loved their food/drinks. Good Job, Kona Grill!"

  • "Without going into to much detail (as it would be a horrible use of my time), the Spinach-Artichoke dip was watery, the Miso-Sake fish was not very tasty and my wife had to send it back, and the kitchen didn't pay attention to the waiter's instructions to not put pork in my wife's rice. I could go on but you get the point. "

  • "My co-workers and I go here all the time and never get tired of it. The menu has everything from sushi to pasta! It is all delish and the don't have an issue if you ask them to hold the avocado or whatever. Food is always fresh and wait staff is friendly. I've never seen anyone working there that's "having a bad day." If you try it you'll be back."

  • "I took my niece to lunch last week, and it was her first time. She really enjoyed the specialty sushi (if you want to call it that - wasabi tuna in tortilla wrap - delish!"

  • "Enjoyed our recent visit to Baltimore and The Kona Grill. Great service and the sea bass is extrodinary!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Restaurant location was great. Walking distance if staying at or near Inner Harbor. Other than location it seems to take on the flare of many other restaurants and attractions at the Inner Harbor. Appears to me to bask in the glory of commercialization at the expense of quality food and service. Have been to other Kona locations, and this location seemed to be a step or two behind relative to food and service. "

  • "We had a group of 14 people for lunch after my daughter's graduation last Saturday afternoon. Everything was perfect - the food and service were both excellent. The wait staff were courteous, accomodating, made inciteful recommendations and prompt with responding to requests going out of there way to make sure that every thing was perfect for our special celebration. We did not have a long wait for our food and it all came out at the same time and it was delicious. The only down side was that we did not have a separate area to ourselves, but that did not detract at all from our luncheon or how great the whole experience was. Thanks to Kona Grill for a wonderful time!"

  • "My wife and I took our mothers and my grandmother here for a belated Mother's Day. They don't have many tables able to support large parties, so they seated us at an elevated booth. It was not easy for some of our party to get up to the booth, as it was about a foot off the ground, but it did give us an excellent view of the beautiful decor. Our table had the potstickers, bulgogi tacos, some sushi rolls, and clam chowder as appetizers. The potstickers and soup were outstanding, and the sushi was good, but the tacos (there were only 2) were very salty and chewy. For dinner, I had the hana chicken salad, which was vinegary but otherwise good. We had the macadamia nut pie for dessert, which was absolutely blissful. I could eat that forever"

  • "This is a definite hot spot in close proximity to both the Hyatt, and the Sheraton Inner Harbor. We had wonderful service and there is a very diverse selection of food! The drinks and the sushi were excellent, but I ended up sending back an overpriced order of sashimi because it was very off to me, and an odd texture. The waiter did not even hesitate about removing it from my bill however, and the rest of the meal was great! I would recommend this place for groups with different food interests, as there is definitely something for everyone!!!"

  • "Great location for people watching in windowed café. In the center of downtown action. The salmon sandwich was perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The tuna on wonton chips is an exceptional appetizer! The ceviche was an unusual preparation with cilantro and jalapeño that was almost too hot to eat. The chili lime shrimp salad was the only disappointment; wilted greens, bland shrimp and lacked flavor. Overall a good spot that would probably be best for lunch."

  • "Food was good. Being on somewhat of a time crunch for lunch I felt the service was a bit slow. From the time we were seated and got our drinks until we ordered, it was 25-minutes. Otherwise a great place. I would go back. Did not use the bar for this visit, but it looked like a great place to meet for drinks and socialize. "

And food!!!"

  • "Closest Kona Grill to us in Las Vegas, but it didn't stop us from trying. The menu was intriguing enough to get us in. It's prom season, so the noise level was pretty high, but the kids were well behaved, though a bit loud. Food was good. I ordered the pad thai with added shrimp and my wife ordered the macadamia nut chicken. After a few bites, she asked if we could trade. Being the good husband that I am, I did so. The pad thai was great for a chain, and the mac nut chicken was adequate. The chicken was nothing special, but I've had specialty chicken dishes at other places that were dried out, so it was fine. The two sushi rolls we ordered were ok as well. My wife really enjoyed the passion fruit creme brulee for dessert."
