    Food here is very good. Portions are quite large and for little ones and seniors sharing an entre might be a good idea. Noise level is very high so be prepared. Desserts are very large, look great and would be probably best shared (calorie count).

    Food was fantastic & very nicely presented. Sushi - dishes came as an appetizer, food came with entree - not right. Ordered no cheese & the had to re-do my dish so it came as others were finishing. Noise level was VERY high. Hard to hold good conversation. Why do TV's & other electronic noises need to be so loud? Waitress was new, but very pleasant & learning.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/10/2014
    We brought clients to the Kona Grill on a Wednesday night. They loved the atmosphere, the food selections and once we finally received our meals, the food was exceptional (except for one steak that was much overcooked - which the manager kindly checked with our table on and removed the cost from our bill). The restaurant became quite busy while we were there, but the waiter was not very attentive or very busy with other tables as there were long gaps between taking our drink/appetizer orders and our entree orders and our meal took almost a 1/2 hour to arrive. They may have been short staffed for an unexpectedly busy mid-week night - but it certainly impacted the impression we had (and left our clients with) regarding the overall experience.

    Went for dinner with some friends and it was just average. A bit pricey (not compared to other sushi places though) but the menu had lots of variety. We all just got rolls, and they were good but not memorable. Had bread pudding for dessert and it was delicious. Server was helpful and attentive. It was a exactly what you would expect from midpriced chain.

    The service was very good and the food we ordered was quite good. None of us were overly hungry so we did not order especially large meals. At times it was a bit noisy be not unreasonable. I have been at Kona a few times for drinks with friends and we have always had a great time.

    While the food was satisfactory, the service was extremely slow. Our server was nice, etc, but it took over 45 minutes for our dinner to come....Since this isn't the first time we were here, I was extremely disappointed. Management bought desert for the table, but to be honest I would have preferred if they would have picked up part of the meals instead.

    The happy hour at Kona is amazing! Coupled with half-price bottles of wine on Wednesdays and you're set! They have great sushi rolls and appetizers on the happy hour menu, as well as a few specialty cocktails. Happy hour goes until 7:00 too, so that's always exciting for those of us who work until 5:00 or later! Definitely get there early, it fills up pretty quickly shortly after 5:00. It gets loud and energetic in there too, so maybe not the best place for a romantic dinner or family outing, but great for catching up with friends with drinks and good, light fare!

    We started with drinks and the roasted veggie flatbread. The flatbread was fantastic! The mojitos, unfortunately, left something to be desired. We had a group of 5; most of us enjoyed our dinners. Mine, I think, was the best (macadamia encrusted chicken). Great kid menu selection!

    This was our second time at Kona. We had both entrees and sushi. The sushi is decent, the portion sizes are good but so many of their specialty rolls are fried. Would be nice to see some other selections. Our server was the same one we had previously and she was outstanding and she even remembered us. We will return.

    Went for lunch and the server was not attentive. We had to ask someone to get the server to come take our order. Server was not friendly, shouldn't have been working that day. Other times have been there and service was much better. Food is always great and for a big group it is wonderful to have the variety of foods from meatloaf to sushi, pleases everyone. Chalk up the poor service as an isolated incident.

    We like Kona, and they have many dishes that we both enjoy. For some reason it took 45 minutes to get our soup and salads, and the rest of the meal came afterwards. My guess is someone didn't show up for work in the kitchen, and somehow they were short staffed. We were starting to get a little upset, and then the food came out. They comped a round of drinks and the soup without us saying anything. It must have been that obvious that they would do that. We did completely enjoy everything we ordered, and comping us did actually save their reputation in our minds. This dining experience was an anomaly, so we're just chalking it up to bad luck. The Picassa Roll is very tasty if you like yellowtail-spicy-ponzu flavor, which I do!

    Dinner out with daughter and husband - all of us are particular about what we eat. Broad variety of menu choices was great. Food was delicious but appetizers and entrees arrived from kitchen very slow. Not sure if this was a kitchen issue or server as she was absent for long periods of time. We will go back because of menu and variety of healthy offerings, and because the last time we were here service was excellent.

    Our dining night started with a 15 minute wait to be even visited by waitstaff after being seated - and that was the manager after asking a busboy if someone would wait on us. The entire wait staff looked like they were in a stupor - no energy from anyone - including our waitress. Food was lousy - the Chop Salad was missing 1/2 the ingredients listed on the menu; the steak I ordered was luke warm at best and the steamed veggies were awful. The waitress arrived with our 2nd round of drinks that were ordered well before our food arrived when we were nearly done with our meal - along with the check and didn't ask how anything was.

    Food was very good. Erin, our server was extremely attentive and helpful. When ordering, we asked her to describe a dish, and she did it perfectly. That is identifying the method of cooking, details on presentation and substance. She did not jump into the conversation with "I like this dish, or this is one of my favorites." Normally, these comments by a server are artificial. Steve, the manager stopped by and chatted. Overall, this was a very good experience.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. The chicken chili was outstanding. The volcano roll was so-so but it's hard to beat the volcano roll at Toyko in Shakopee. Service was outstanding, as expected, and the manager was always on the floor and stopped by every table, as is normal here. Love it.
