Diner Reviews
  • "The food here is of outstanding quality. From the main course to the veggies it was excellent!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Our waitress was attentive and not overly intrusive. She handled our son's awkward manners fantastically and felt like she was fully concerned that our dining experience was a good one. Beyond that the food was great, fresh and filling. For example, my wife ordered a piece of carrot cake that could feed 3 people and was very well made. My son received a free creme brulee which he raved about as well. Not bad for a place in an open air mall with a view of an Old Navy."

  • "Food was excellent. Outside seating is awesome! Service was a little slow but maybe because we were outside"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I enjoyed everything food wise! And of course it's a beautiful restaurant . Except the music was so loud and there were very little people in the restaurant so i was yelling across the table... So if your looking for a peaceful quiet place- not where you should go"
    Dined on 8/13/2014

    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This was our first time, and we would go back if someone wanted to try it (excellent avacado egg rolls! ) but there are too many other restaurants to try before we lock in on favorites."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "My family and I really enjoy Kona Grill. Not all of us like sushi and the menu offers a wide variety to make everyone happy. I have never had anything that I didn't enjoy!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "While the fish was very good, the noise level made it difficult to enjoy our dinner."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "It has been a while since we have dined here. Manager not too friendly who sat me. Same manager brought out our dinners and 'threw' the plates down in front of us. Food was average."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I had a diverse group - kids, grandparents and myself. Everyone was happy. Grandparents enjoyed their traditional steak and salmon dinners. The kids loved the fish tank and their bento boxes with a bear crafted out of an orange. And my husband and I enjoyed some sushi. Something for everyone!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We always have a nice time at Kona Grill. We especially appreciate the varied menu. There is something for everyone."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We were excited to try Kona Grill. It was advertised as being a seafood restaurant, but instead, it was heavy in asian cuisine. But, that was not the problem. The food was not good at all. I started with a sushi roll - terrible. I then ordered the sea bass and it was subpar. It came with shrimp and pork fried rice, which was room temperature cold, not hot. I ordered dessert and it too was not very good. I did not send anything back because we were pushed for time. I will say that the cosmo drink was great - I had two. I gave the restaurant two stars because of the service. We had a really friendly and helpful waitress, which made our time there better despite the meal. The menu is fine - execution of the meals failed."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our dining experience was awesome! We were celebrating my daughters birthday. The food was wonderful and our servers were very attentive and went the "extra Mile" to make our meal very special."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "This place has good food and is very kid friendly. My kids loved the etch a sketches they hand out to keep them busy and I have never seen a more extensive kids menu."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Kudos for 3 menus normal,vegetarian, vegan but too bad few vegan. Very friendly service. Will do it Again!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food, cocktails, and service were great, although there were a bunch of fruit flies around the restaurant. That got a bit irritating while trying to enjoy ourselves!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Sushi is great and the chili glazed salmon on the oriental salad is a favorite. The only issue are the fruit flies hovering around the dining room."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Seated immediately for our reservation. Great drink menu with fun cocktails, good sushi and a broad menu made for a great dinner with friends who like everything from just meat and potatoes to pad Thai. A reliable north side Carmel dinner spot with shopping out the door."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Always enjoy kona grill...... Some of the best sushi in Indy. A huge menu for non-sushi lovers as well. Go there."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "My family visited on a Friday evening for dinner. Parking was close, the host staff greeted us immediately and professionally and we were seated within 5 minutes. The service was excellent as well as the food. The waitress was very knowledgable, vibrant and continues to visit the table regularly to see how we were doing and remove used items. The manager visited with us as well. Great establishment!!!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had a group of 7, including 2 children, and the service was great. The server was able to make recommendations to people and was very knowledgeable about his food products/content/preparation."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Impeccable service made up for somewhat pricey menu choices. Not a "traditional" Japanese restaurant, so don't expect Japanese dishes. Otherwise, very good and fresh sushi/sashimi that are reasonably priced."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our first experience was very good. Have had jambalaya many times...this one was overly "hot"...could hardly eat it. Waitress a bit pretentious."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We had a great evening and the hosts were able to accommodate us with the extra person that had joined our party. Our server, Josh, was amazing as we'll! Even though it was a busy Saturday night, he treated us like his only table. He offered many suggestions and was very helpful! The food was great as always but we will definitely be back just to see Josh!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "As is the case often, we had another fine meal at Kona grill. I consistently get the sushi and my wife loves several dishes and salads. Service is timely and friendly. Prices are fair. I heartily recommend for anyone! "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Kona Grill is fantastic! We went for my birthday and everything was great. Our server, Scott, was friendly, fast and efficient. He had great recommendations and was present without being over bearing. "

  • "Great place for an outdoor dinner with friends! The Happy Hour menu turned out to be perfect size, taste and quantity. We had a wonderful meal with top notch service!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We were late due to road construction. I miscounted the number of people joining us (8 instead of 6). But the manager, Chris Thomas & our server were very accommodating & took very good care of us!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Had a great dinner at Kona Grill with my family. The wife and I split some signature sushi rolls. I can't remember the names, but my wife loved the roll with coconut shrimp and I loved the spicy roll with jalapeños on top. The kids menu here is great, much better than most every other restaurant in town. More choices for sides was especially nice. Service was great, and we enjoyed sitting outside. I would visit here much more if I didn't live an hour away."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Kona was a go-to place for many years so it was nice to return after a lengthy break. We had a late lunch so the restaurant was quiet, with most diners outside. The food was great and the Raspberry Crush martini was fantastic. We will put Kona back on the list of go-to places. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The food was very good! I tried Sushi for the first time. I had a signature dish."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Food was great as always but we were celebrating Mother's Day and it was apparent that the staff was not paying attention to the music selection or the volume blaring into the dining rom. We felt the choice of "Back in Black" and several other songs from that genre to set the tone at noon on Mother's Day was off target. The selection did shuffle periodically with more appropriate choices of softer modern-day pop however the ambiance for a nice, Sunday lunch for Mother's Day could have been better managed."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "You can't beat great food and service. It works every time!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The Kona Grill staff are well trained and knowledgable about their menu. They are courteous and attentive without being disruptive. The food is prepared well and well portioned. It is a Great place for a good times with friends."
