  • "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!"

  • "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"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was great! Our server was awesome! And the dessert was out of this world awesome. We will definitely be back"

  • "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
  • "Outstanding food, good service.... What 's not to like ! The selection of sushi is remarkable."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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 2/14/2014
  • "Didn't get what was ordered and wasn't checked on well and was still billed for missing food items. Once paid bill and stayed and talked no service at all once tip was given. Don't plan on returning"
    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!"
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "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,"
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Took 45 minutes to get the check after we finished our meal."

  • "We were in Kona grill many times and always there great atmosphere, service and food. Sometimes you have to wait long time."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "The entire experience was very good minus the open windows to the Cherry Creek Mall, where you could hear a very unhappy child having their late in the day meltdown. The food selection is varied, making it appeal to all palates. The Pinot Evil glass of wine was decent in flavor and price. We finished with a very good Passion Fruit Crème Brulee - smooth and creamy!"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Wonderful service. No hovering, but always responsive. Sushi plates were great!"
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "We had eaten here a couple of times in the past, but when we couldn't get into our first choice place, we thought of Kona Grill & decided to try it again. Very convenient parking and nice setting. The service was outstanding. We just had burgers and sandwiches, but they were excellent. Got the sweet potato fries - also good. Only downside was lots of little kids, not all well behaved."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "We always enjoy the Kona Grill. They are great with kids [each one gets an Etch a Sketch to entertain them during your meal.], the menu has choices for fish, sushi, and normal fare, the staff is always friendly and helpful when making choices, and the food is always super tasty."
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "Service was good, not intrusive, but helpful. Food was also very good, distinctly Japanese style, but oriented to western taste. Surprising clientele, several families with children. All quiet and well behaved."
    Dined on 11/24/2013
  • "Used to live in the area and went back for the weekend. The food was great and we had a lot of fun with the waiter. It was a little noisy but this restaurant will not dissapoint you. Cheers!"

  • "Apps are amazing but all other meals(6) were overly spiced."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "We sat by the kitchen, not great. The food was very good, but not particularly interesting. The sushi was excellent. My son ordered a pasta dish which usually comes with meat as a vegetarian dish. It was accidentally made with meat, but they discovered it before it was served and fixed the error as quickly as they could. The manager came out and apologized for the delay and asked if there was anything he could do to make it up, offered free sides etc. He was very gracious."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Been to this location three times in the last month and wont be going back. I kept thinking it couldn't get worse but it does. Had the same server 2 of the three visits and he is TERRIBLE. No manager in sight. Kona was one of my favorite restaurants in Austin but this Denver location is really bad. What a shame!"
    Dined on 9/10/2013
  • "The food is good and they have a separate vegetarian menu, but you have to request it. It is quite expensive, even for lunch."
    Dined on 8/7/2013
  • "Been here several times and food has always been good. Being located in mall makes for easy parking."
