  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Always enjoy kona grill...... Some of the best sushi in Indy. A huge menu for non-sushi lovers as well. Go there."

  • "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!!!"

  • "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!"

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "You can't beat great food and service. It works every time!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014

  • "Our daughter's pick for her birthday dinner was Kona Grill in Carmel. She was happy to be there and enjoy the sushi with her family."

  • "My husband and I went on a Wednesday night for dinner and drinks. The wine was half price and they had a selection that included different price points (and even packaged it up so we could take the rest with us at the end of the evening!). My husband was happy with a local Sunking beer. We ordered the beef tacos for an appetizer, the mahi mahi (fresh catch), and the kona filet, all of which were great. Our server Philip was brand new but still very knowledgeable and helpful! Overall wonderful experience!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "After having several very bad restaurant experiences of late, we were hesitant to eat out again. However, Kona Grill blew us out of the water with not only excellent food bit also service and atmosphere! Look forward to returning and trying other menu items!"

  • "Kona Grill is mine & my husband's favorite place to eat. Always great friendly service staff, food is always cooked/made to perfection. Love, Love, Love Kona Grill!!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Our dining experience was mediocre. I thought the price was too high for what you got. Our food was served hot, but it wasn't exceptional quality. Our waiter was good. He kept checking with us to see if our drinks were filled and to see if we needed anything. We probably won't be back."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We have eaten here many times but the last couple times the music in the dining room was WAY too loud! We felt like we were trying to have a nice dinner and dinner conversation in a night club!! We asked that it be turned down which they did but after about 15 min turned it up again. Listening to loud techno music is NOT my idea of a quiet dinner! For an up scale restaurant this is not acceptable!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Server seemed like he was in a hurry. We were starving and looking to order lots of food. He made us feel rushed. Our sushi arrived 2 min before our food. Even though we didn't put our entrees in until 15 min after sushi order. After dinner, he made us feel fat after asking if we wanted dessert. We said yes and he said wow."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My husband and I took a friend there for dinner on Saturday night. We had both been there before but she had not. The food was good, as always but I was somewhat upset with our server. I normally order from the sushi menu but had never ordered any of the "chef's plates". When I asked the server to describe for me a couple of the "chef's plates" he looked at me like I had 2 heads. He was extremely rude with an attitude implying my stupidity for not knowing what a "chef's plate" is. My question had to do with are they mean't to be an entre or are they similar to a small plate or an appetizer size? I finally ordered the one that was pretty self explanatory "tuna tower". The others have absolutely NO description whatsoever on the menu."

  • "I arrived just a few minutes before my reservation was scheduled and I was seated promptly. I meeting someone new for a business meeting. She arrived a few minutes after me. However, she was told that I had not yet arrived. She sat waiting in the lobby while I sat waiting at the table for 20 minutes before they realized their mistake. This was a bit frustrating, especially since an apology was never made. However, the rest of the meal went well. The food was lovely, the server was attentive, and the restaurant was cozy."
