Diner Reviews
  • "OMG! I had such a great time at Kona Grill-Dallas! The hostesses were very attentive and knowledgeable about my party and were very eager to make sure I was happy with the table selection and location. The server was beyond experienced with handling a large group! I ordered a flatbread for my appetizer, and for dinner I had Shrimp Tempura AND Softshell Crab Rolls - both were AMAZEBALLS!! My server also provided me with a Double Shot Coconut Rum Mojito that was out of this world. My family devoured their Pulled Pork Sliders and Chicken Macadamia Nut dishes and Strawberry Margaritas!"

  • "We love the variety of the menu-- something for everyone. Just walk through the dining room and you will want to try what you see on other people's tables. Easy to find a favorite item too. We're now addicted to the pork tenderloin and the calamari. Service is outstanding!"

  • "Kona Grill at Northpark is usually consistent. The sushi was good, although the shrimp in the tempora roll was mushy. It usually is crisp and recently cooked to order. I think they ran shrimp that was sitting there as we came in at 2:00 pm. The avocado egg rolls were incredible."

  • "Went to Kona Grill for a sales meeting payoff. Everyone loved the exotic drinks, the menu, and especially the sushi. Desserts were fantastic and generous. The wait staff was fun and attentive. The problem was getting seated. I had gone to the restaurant the day before to make sure they could seat our group of 14. I was assured there would not be a problem. On the day of the luncheon, although 12 of our party were ready to be seated, they would not seat us even though the restaurant was completely EMPTY! It took me 20 minutes of talking to the hostess and manager before being seated. Even when we left, only four other tables had been taken. I understand company policy, but common sense and hospitality should take precedence."

  • "The food is awesome. The only Polynesian food I am aware of in the area. Ambience is terrible. Loud and screaming people in the restaurant. "

  • "Visit soon and often. The food was good, sushi tasted fresh and flavorful. Our server made the meal though. She made us feel like a guest in her home. Chantal is clearly on top of her game. Thanks for a great evening. "

  • "My two friends and I met at Kona Grill for dinner and drinks before seeing a movie at NorthPark Mall. The atmosphere was great, the bar was busy but we had great service, and when our table was ready or waitress was wonderful and our food was terrific. I recommend the Las Vegas roll. It was my favorite. Overall we had a great experience, and I would recommend it to everyone looking for delicious sushi. "

  • "The food was awesome. We were seated right in time. Our server was very attentive, almost too much. We love this restaurant! I would not recommend it for romantic dinner, it is just too loud but everything else is outstanding."

  • "Met with a business group at Kona because our regular location was booked that day. As usual, the food was great and the atmosphere was quiet enough that you could have a normal conversation with no issues."

  • "We ordered the Mother's Day Special. I ordered the clam chowder and she ordered the Chicken Chili. They were both delicious. When we got The steak and Lobster tail mine was good. Her Steak was supposed to be cooked medium well and it turned out Medium rare. Then her Lobster was rubbery. She would not even touch it. The carrot cake was cold and did not taste fresh. Luckily my gift took away from the experience. "

  • "Given the diversity of restaurants in Dallas I would give Kona Grill a pass. The food was very ordinary yet the price was in line with far better restaurants. Won't go back."

  • "This was my second time at the Kona Gril, and it was the second time it was slow in service and the servers both times seem to make rookie mistakes. My wife asked if they had sweet tea, the reply was "we have tea with sweetner" meaning no. Should of just said no or "no we only have unsweet tea. My wife gets tea and we had to ask three times to get the sweetner. The food was good to very good, they have a great menu that is unique to the area, but like I said both times I have been there our appitizer was comped because the food was slow getting to the table. We may go again, but it will be a while."

  • "My only issue is that we had 6:15pm reservations on a Saturday night and even with reservations it took over 30 minutes to be seated. Wasn't a big deal as we weren't in a rush but...longer than I had anticipated considering we had early evening reservations. "

  • "Kona Grill is our go-to restaurant for business lunches. We frequently take clients there from out of town. The food is always excellent, the service always attentive, and the atmosphere is casual, but classy. Also great for a date, entertaining visiting friends or family, or any reason you might have to visit an upscale restaurant. They also have some very nice options for special dietary needs (vegetarian, gluten free, etc.)."

  • "Went for a Mother's Day dinner with family. Food and service was great as always but two things were not. The taste if the water was musty and my extra dirty martini was blah. "

  • "Even though it's at the mall, the food is great and the atmosphere is fun! Not a first date place, but definitely a place worth checking out"

  • "We love eating at Kona grill. They have a great menu and a great happy hour. Our only complaint is that the service in the restaurant is consistently slow and forgetful. The last three visits have been sub par, as far as service which was disappointing when we were out with family and friends. "

  • "Group of 3 was quickly seated. Food and wine were ordered and delivered efficiently. One of our group is not fond of sushi and easily found a yummy substitute. The noise level was very high--the only negative for the evening. It was hard to talk."

  • "Our first time there, and the food was very good. We had a booth in the corner of the restaurant, which was quiet and romantic. The manager stopped by to check on us and when he found out it was our first time there, gave us a complimentary dessert! We will be back."

  • "We enjoy dining here and have a few favorite menu items as well. Service was great and we were seated pretty quickly. Kona chopped salad is delicious and the sushi is always good. We tried the bread pudding this time and it was huge! Definitely leave more room for dessert next time. Will be back!"

  • "My family and I dine here all the time and everything has always been awesome! This time...we ordered similar food except the fried rice is uncooked. It's still raw and crunchy. The server replaced it but it's still taste the same. The restaurant just need to be more careful when cooking the rice. That's the only reason why I rate 3 stars instead of 5, otherwise, it would have been a 5."

  • "OK, the pork tenderloin stands apart from the rest of this review. It is an accomplishment. I don't know how they pack so much flavor into all those cell walls, but it is smoky, balanced, moist, and just lovely. But I was forced to order sushi--again--because everything else on their menu was over 1000 calories. The sushi was ok. some pieces were a little strong in the fishy-flavor. Not the best I've had. And there are few accompaniments to go with a roll. My friend got tenderloin noodles. Greasy and kind of boring. The waiter was able to let me taste a white blend before ordering a glass-which was delightful. So that helped. We will go back because my husband is addicted to the tenderloin, but I'm not ringing the bell for you guys."

  • "I live nearby, had never been. Wednesdays is "wind down" day with 1/2 price bottles of wine. Who knew! Food was very good (better than I expected for a mall location chain restaurant). I will definitely go back due to: great location, very good food, good prices."

  • "We went there Valentine's Day for nice evening of Sushi, Sake and conversation. The restaurant was busy, but we had reservations and they seated us on time and without any hitches. We had the sake sampler, Kirin beers and 3 varieties of sushi rolls. The Unagi is awesome!! This is my 3rd time here and I've never had a bad sushi roll. The whole evening was great and we enjoyed almost everything about the restaurant. Due to the nature of Valentine's Day and the busyness of the resturant, the server seemed a little slower than we're used to. We ordered 2x 22oz Kirin Light Beers, in large bottles, and had to wait another 6mins to get glasses. When the glasses were delivered, they were hot! Seriously? This should be addressed."

  • "Best Sushi I've had in Dallas. I feel the place feels a bit dated though with the decor. Could use a more contemporary facelift. No complaints though. Food makes up for anything lost elsewhere"

  • "Met a friend for lunch and as usual the food was terrific and service good. Oriental salad, soup, edamame and iced tea times 2. All good. All fresh. Slight problem with the check, but no big deal, because it was quickly corrected. Not a server problem, but a computer glitch that didn't price at the lunch combo price, but individual full price. Caught it, fixed it, and went on our happy day."

  • "OMG / I ordered the Hawaiian ribeye - and they were out !!! At 6:30 pm. !!! No excuse for that - PERIOD !! Actually suggests thry are prepping to a budget, not customers. Which suggests STRONGLY they are in $$$ problems. Especially that early, this tone of year on a signature dish. Also the bar was only 85% full. Another bad sign this time of year. Northpark mall was packed - they were not. And the "substitute" order of meatloaf was overcooked and under sauced - suggesting a sub-marginal cooking staff. Still another bad sign. Oh, and nothing even offered as a comp since the first choice was "out" - another bad sign of not really thinking about future customers."

  • "We reserved for 12 at 11:30 confirmed over the phone that we were on our way but when we got there, our table was not set. So we had to wait to be seated while they put tables and place settings together for us. After that it was smooth sailing. Our waitress was very patient and knowledgeable about the food and even made some alternate suggestions for some of us. We will definitely go back, I just hope next time we don't have to wait seeing that we were on lunch."
