  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

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."

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."

  • "Other than it being a little noisy for my taste, everything was excellent. Alana was our server, and she was outstanding in her friendly demeanor and the timing of her service. My sister and I both chose the Sea Bass, and it was an excellent dish. We splurged by getting dessert (not normal for us), and the Butter Cake was indescribable!!! It was not our first visit to Kona Grill, but we will be back again!"

  • "My extended family met here for a lunch right before Christmas. We had a good time and the employees were great with us. We didn't feel pushed to leave or that they were annoyed with having a big, noisy group in the middle of their restaurant. This is the second year we have done this at Kona Grill and we will most likely be back for a third!"

  • "Tasty with a broad selection. The fish was very well seasoned but a few minutes overlooked. The chicken was similarly overdone and possibly reheated). The appetizer, various noodle dishes and desserts were great."

  • "The service was horrible, the food was average at best. Our apps were late getting to the table, and I asked the server not to bring the entrees directly after the apps but sure enough, one minute after the apps were served, the entrees were served. We would ask the server for something and she would not bring it unless we asked 2-3 more times."
