Diner Reviews
  • "The atmosphere was pleasant. Service was slow and inattentive. The portions were quite large. One of our orders should have been Gluten Free. It was not. The guest got ill. Chef came out and comped that meal and offered dessert to take home. Overall, it was pricey. We would probably not return."

  • "We had a large party of 10…. our waitress was great.. we also had some small kids and everyone was very accommodating. The sushi rolls that we had were delicious. The pad thai that two of the guests had was good but not tasty enough to order again."

  • "I think we would have had a better time if there was no construction. No view, difficult to park (even with the valet) and kinda claustrophobic. The whole patio/restaurant is blocked by 14 ft. tall construction walls. Service was good, food was good but we went for a Birthday. Not a wonderful way to celebrate ;-)"

  • "As usual, the food and service at Kona Grill was excellent."

  • "Healthy and affordable kids' meals, complete with orange carved into a bear, healthy protein and vegetable sides. Service on this and recent visits has been friendly but painfully slow. They have been attentive to food allergies for us. Consistent good food quality."

  • "My wife and I met another couple with our infants for an early Saturday dinner. Five o'clock on Saturday and the place was relatively empty. We had plenty of space for the high-chairs/carseats and a a quiet environment so the babies could sleep. Service was friendly and generally attentive. I split the shrimp and lemon pasta with my wife and it was excellent. Great flavor and a good dish for a hot summer day. The waitress talked us into the caprese salad (which was the special salad that day) and it was very good - but turned out to be a $10 salad when I thought we were just adding a $3 side salad to our entrée. We've been to Kona a few times and would certainly go back, but it's not on the top of our list. Also, draft beer list is lacking."

  • "The food here tends to be pretty good. The appetizers are usually nice, we had the avocado eggrolls and the steak tacos, the sushi is usually pretty good and their entrees are respectable. The only problem is the wait staff can be great or awful. It is odd how it can fluctuate so much. We've been very impressed and very disappointed at different occasions. We have had to get up and get our own water before, the manager has had to help service the table because our wiatress was MIA, but at other times they can be quite good. It just depends on the luck of the draw I guess. But the food is usually consistently good. Unless the waiter is so out of it that they bring it cold. Which has happened. But it is usually hot and delicious. "

  • "Ate at the bar for Mothers Day early evening dinner. Had planned on a table but arriving early and getting seated and served at the bar we just stayed there. Good app selection, great service. Will return for a relaxing break from shopping"

  • "The food quality has dropped a notch. We are from the foothills so we don't get there often. It feels like they have a new chef or new owner and they are less committed to quality."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went here for Mother's Day and the food was good as well as the service. We had the Surf and Turf special. The food was good, although the serving of lobster was rather small."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food was great. The service was awful. The server was awful. You had to track him down to get a refill. Some people never received one. It is very pricey, but you get a decent amount of food. Won't go back simply because I don't have 2 hours to eat dinner. "

  • "Two of my friends and myself had dinner at the Kona Grill in the Cherry Creek Mall, Denver, CO on Sat 4/5/2014. Everything was perfect. All of us chose different entrees and each of us were very happy with what we got. I'm sorry I did not get the name of our server, but she did an excellent. She didn't hover, which I hate, but she was always there when we needed something. I'll be back!"

  • "Kona is a great place to meet friends for an evening. We enjoyed the food and the service was fantastic. Of course, my favorite...the Creme Brulee. YUM"

  • "Sushi was good; rest of meal was just ok; not worth the bill. Server was nice, but service was too quick. It wasn't busy so the food came out quickly. Seemed to rush us out even though the restaurant was more than half empty."

  • "We LOVED this place. We were a party of 8 and had a wonderful dining experience! None of us ever dined here before. We were very pleased in picking this rare find for 5280. Very generous portions, great wait staff, excellent service and such a wide variety of food options. Food and dessert fabulous!!! Will definitely go back time and time again! You will not be disappointed."

  • "I ordered the sweet chili salmon....I asked for rare....it came well done covered with soy sauce....the vegetables were drenched in oil and garlic. The apps were great. The service was great...the waiter outstanding. All in all had a good evening because the company was great"

  • "we were supposed to go for dinner but arrived early so opted for the patio. The food and drinks were excellent but the service was extremely slow. However, the waiter was very friendly and helpful when he had time to attend to us. I think they need more waiters. Also, there is no Happy Hour on Saturday, disappointing."

  • "Prompt and attentive service, food better than expected...just wish you didn't have to be "on display" to people walking by in the mall and acting like the restaurant is an art gallery"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We would have given Kona Grill a better review score were it not for the fact that it is located at one end of the Cherry Creek Mall. While we were eatin with friends on Valentines Day, we had to endure shoppers walking by and looking over the ledge at our food. There wasn't even any glass to separate the shoppers from our table. If you go there, request an inside table!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Very weak cocktails. Ordered surf n turf. Meat good, cooked perfectly. But lobster tail very small, doubt it was 5 oz. Creme brûlée too lemony. Overall, disappointed. Won't go back."

    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "Perfect Pairings on menu is great. I had miso soup and a crab crunch roll for $10 or $11. My friend had the Kona burger which is what he always gets (with bacon added). The male host was very friendly and the server was great. That day I think our server got slammed with a lunch rush and so it took kind of long to get the bill. Everything else was great!"

  • "My 21 year-old wanted to have her birthday dinner at Kona Grill. I had rather low expectations since it was in a mall. Was I surprised. Everything about our dining experience was great. The food, service, quality, price, the whole nine yards. This is must try for anyone looking for a wonderful night out."

  • "Not organization on servers, managers don't know need of customers. Take more than several times to ask for services, also we need to keep requesting Same drinks or items over and over,"
