    in attentive service, running out of items, and not telling you until you ask where it is. One item to the table at a time, sitting for 15 with an empty glass. You'd think it was a bad night, but this wasn't my first time there and it has gotten worse over time. Was told the manager was coming over after some issues, and even though we were there for another hour, never saw them. He was busy eatting dinner at the sushi bar. I brought out of town guests, and was truly embarrassed as we had to continually wave down the server who as standing in the prep line window visiting. Won't be going back

    Shared 3 dishes . Avacado egg rolls, delicious, small portion for price. Chopped salad, fantastic, plenty to share, will definately order next time. Margarita pizza, fail in my eyes, my dining partners enjoyed it. Balsamic vinegar on this pizza was a fail to me. Crust became very soggy too! Overall great dining experience and we will go back again! :)

    Went to Kona Grill with a group of 6 people. Open Table is a must for making a reservation because the place filled up fast. Had a drink at the bar (we were early) and the bar server was very attentive and fast. Once our party arrived we went to our table and were immediately greeted by an enthusiastic server who knew the menu top to bottom. He was great to us all night. I think his name was Marty. The food was outstanding and the menu was very diverse. We had entrees ranging from shrimp penne to macadamia nut chicken to sea bass and lobster mac N cheese. Outstanding, will definitely come back!

    Kona Grill is a great place for a special lunch/dinner; varied menu, at slightly above average prices, but well worth it. The Macadamia nut chicken is worth every mouthful. The service is very good; our waitress was exceptional with many suggestions and a very pleasant demeanor. The wine/drink list is good and last but not least the dessert menu is short but also worth trying, especially the Key Lime pie. We enjoyed a very pleasant birthday lunch.

    Went to Kona on a weekday. Not very busy. My husband ordered the Sea Bass ($28) entree. It was the smallest piece of fish ever. He almost sent it back. The entrees were good tasting, but portions were much smaller than I remember. We usually go got happy hour, which is terrific. Our wait person was excellent.

    We got to restaurant 30 minutes early, but they were nice enough to accommodate us. Bar was horrendously noisy. Could hardly stand it. Booth in dining area much better. Service was friendly. My husband absolutely LOVES the macadamia chicken! I had the salmon for the first time. I loved it. They cook to your liking, so wasn't dry and overcooked and the sweet spicy sauce and veggies with it were great!

    Some friends and I went for dinner Saturday night. Our table was ready as soon as we got there. Our server was friendly, helpful and funny. We had delicious beverages and after consulting with our server on what to order, our food arrived. She apologized to us for the wait, but it didn't feel like we had to wait too long. I had the macadamia nut chicken with potatoes and green beans. Delicious. I couldn't eat it all only because I was too full. It was a great experience with great drinks, great food, and great server!

    Food was prompt and delicious. But the waitress was terrible. Nice demeanor, but not attentive. After taking our order we didn't see her again until we were done and napkins were on the table. At that point she cleared a plate and said she would get us a refill. 10 minutes later she returned...and we had to ask for our check. I'm not sure we will be back soon...and if we do go, it will be to sit at the Sushi bar, not in the restaurant.

    Not especially notable but good in almost all ways. Pot stickers are great, the lobster mac and cheese tasty on a cold night. Service is very good. Ambience is excellent...a very smart looking restaurant. Overall, food is somewhat "corporate" and above average. Not especially notable. Overall, enjoyable.

    I had made reservations at ll:00 AM on October 1 for 7:00 PM. We had to wait 20-30 minutes before we got a table. We had a party of 9 for a birthday so expected to get seated right away. Not happy that a table wasn't ready for us. Person at desk just kept saying soon-we are waiting for other people to leave. I feel our table should of been ready when we got there.

    We always get great food at Kona - but even more impressive was our server Tracy. We were being "difficult", kind of dithering over where to sit, main dining room or sushi bar. Tracy graciously moved us from the dining room, and back, after we changed our minds and then continued with providing us wonderful service. No question - we will go back.

    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.

    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.
