Diner Reviews
  • "Food was very good and service was great. Very noisy when we were there."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Kona Grill has an interesting mix of styles on its menu; there's bound to be something to please everyone. I had the potstickers and the crunch crab roll. The potstickers were very good; delicate and flavorful, the perfect appetizer. The crunch crab roll is good, but not necessarily outstanding. The service was top notch though, and it was the service what brought a good dining experience up to a very good one. "

  • "My salad was excellent and so was the sea bass. Our server was very nice, and I'll take a nice server, but inexperienced server over a rude one any day. However, I suggest that he could use a little more training. Most notably, he placed his hands on the table and sort of leaned on the table while he was talking with us. I think he was just a little nervous and inexperienced, but it was a little off-putting. However, he was just the right amount of "attentive" (not bothersome, and we didn't feel like we were wondering where he was). Also, my husband ordered the lobster/tuna flat bread as an entree (he asked if that was ok) - but it came as an appetizer. Also, he asked that the tuna be cooked through, but it came raw in the middle."

  • "We've come here a few times; bar snacks are good, but, dinner menu is less than stellar. It's ordinary food in a good atmosphere."

  • "Even though there was a GF menu we were not certain about some foods and our waiter didn't really sense our concern. Family has Celiac disease, we are not fad dieters, so having a knowledgeable wait staff is essential. Also, the specialty sushi rolls were only average and the basic ones bland. We got seated right at the kitchen even though we had reservations and the place was 1/2 empty and it was LOUD. My family's first time there and they were not impressed. Sorry"

  • "The only negative was that the restaurant was out of salmon at 6:30 - this was the one dish I was certain one of my children would like...we made it work, but surprising to be out of salmon at 6:30...on Mother's Day."

  • "The food is really great with pricing make it easy to budget a meal or go all out! The kids menu has sushi as a choice, which my kids LOVED! And at $6 totally a place I'd bring the family back to again. Great atmosphere to look at but was loud ( they were packed and it has high ceilings). We look forward to coming again."

  • "We go for the sushi. They have other great food on the menu as well. They have a lot of different Sushi rolls on the menu, maybe 30 different kinds. We usually order two Sushi rolls at a time and share them. Four Sushi rolls is about all we need. They have good wine on the wine list just not a lot of choices."

  • "I am sure that the bartender/server thought that he was doing a great job, however he didn't give me the feeling that he wanted me sitting at his bar. Perhaps it was the busy Happy Hour crowd, or the GM observing bar operations, but I was never notified that there were Happy Hour drink and food specials while other patrons who came to the bar after me were. Unfortunately, it was after I had already ordered my food. I've been to the Kona in Baltimore and I've felt much better, however here I recieved my food...edible as it may have been...and nothing else. No warm and fuzzy here. "

  • "A few girlfriends and myself went to Kona Grill on Friday night. We had great food and wine. We shared the potstickers for an appetizer which were delicious. The place was packed but service was still great. We all enjoyed our dinner as well. Kong Grill has a great happy hour (food and drink specials) but it is only allowed in the bar area which we did not sit at. We definitely will return (hopefully for happy hour next time)!"

  • "Kona Grill is a fairly expensive but always delicious dining experience. I have been 5 times in the last year for various special occasions and with the exception of my most recent trip it was an excellent experience. Like any restaurant server quality can vary which led to a sub par experience in my last visit."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "The only complaint I have is that Happy Hour is not offered to anyone seated in the dining room and that would cause me to go elsewhere during that time of the day. We had a party of 10 and it wouldn't have been easy to change tables. This is unfair to the dining room patrons. We spent a lot of money and should have been afforded the same specials no matter where seated."

  • "We really loved it ....the only thing I would have liked is to have known the prices when our server announced them yo us...otherwise I'm sure well be back."

  • "Kona grill has an awesome delicious menu......hard to choose so must return. The Pad Thai was wonderful and I had a chile lime shrimp salad with macadamia nuts terrific.........one had the pork sliders with sweet potato fries and loved that too..........we all shared the shrimp/chicken lettuce wraps and are really good ENJOY the décor and food; great place to eat and free parking garage behind if the lot is full YOU SHOULD GO..........Glen Allen/Short Pump area"

  • "My husband & I had lunch with his parents & sister. It was delicious! No one had any complaints and our server was very knowledgable and gave great recommendations and we ordered his suggestions and were very happy with the selections. Seafood ceviche was over the top! Please make it permanent to your menu."

  • "I decided to spend Valentine's Day with my special someone and the overall experience was great!!! It was my first time and I glad I made reservations because like expected this place was packed. Now the menu had a variety of items which is good. I tried sushi for the first time and I have to say it was not bad at all. Afterwards I tried one of there recommened dishes which was the Sea Bass and oh man was it good. This dish was big enough to split and at a price of 25 bucks thats a good look. Now don't ask me why but I've been on a get dessert just for the heck of it kick lately so I did and once again I was amazed. My date and I was intimidated by the size of this dessert which probably sounds crazy but hey see for yourself."

  • "Very nice restaurant with excellent food. Very impressed. Went on a busy night, and it was very noisy! Actual pain on the eardrums. Told the hostess, and we were reseated in the dining room. Much better, though still loud. Service was so-so, but the waitress was pleasant and eager to please. Pick a night other than Valentine's Day or Friday (unless you like the noise), and you will probably enjoy yourself very much. Sea bass and pork tenderloin are recommended."

  • "We went out for dinner with our seven month old and company. They were very accommodating and friendly. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and extremely friendly. The manager came over to check on us to be sure everything was ok. We had various sushi items...delicious! I would recommend the yomada roll. Our friend had the shrimp pad Thai which was also good. We will definitely return often."

  • "Food and service was great. Noted on reservation that this was a birthday celebration for 2 people in our party. As a special touch, it would have been nice if server/greeter acknowledged that. PF Changs did acknowledge and even gave free dessert for birthday celebrant when I made Open Table reservation at to PF Changs..."

  • "Enjoyed a delicious lunch on a Saturday afternoon with my husband. Had a birthday coupon so we decided to use it. Food is delicious, high quality and well worth the visit. Sushi sampler is a favorite entree. Service was excellent. Manager came by to ask if we were satisfied (which we were) and that added an extra special touch to the experience. Highly recommend:) We will be returning."

  • "I really enjoyed celebrating my birthday at Kona Grill. My friends were elated with the food, since this was their first time dining at Kona Gril. It was my second time, because my first time was so great, Really a fantastic hot spot. The service was five star and the manager came and greeted my guest and I. They even gave me free desert, which was a big slice of velvet red cake. I recommend this restaurant to everyone."

  • "Kona Grill is a fantastic restaurant. They have fabulous food and their waitstaff is friendly and courteous. I love their Miso Sake Sea Bass. It is always perfection. My husband loves their sushi. Try the spicy mayo on the side. You won't regret it. We have made a tradition of eating there on New Years Eve. The energy is fun without being too loud. They play great music. Worth a trip into Short Pump."
