Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great waiter, and all the staff helped each other. Great atmosphere, good vibe, way cool sinks in the bathroom! The Hawaiian Ribeye steak dinner was Wonderful, the mashed potatos unsurpassed and the lovely veggie side like a stir fry and very fresh. Waiter brought out an amazng lemon creme brulee for my husband's birthday, and I reserved online with that comment, so it was just taken care of without my having to ask there. Delicious drinks! Really great place; could add some more specifically Hawaiian inspired fare to the menu."

  • "The patio is a great place to sit on a nice day. We went on a Sunday evening where there is a 50% off menu (drinks and food) for certain food and a regular menu for the rest. We ordered off both menus. Food was really good, the services was great, and the price was right. Really fun atmosphere"

  • "The Honey Pineapple Mojito was unique and delish. The Salmon entree with sweet chilli sauce was very good acommpanied with the corn and muushroom medley. Yum. The Macadamian Nut Crusted chicken was moist and flavorful. The service was very good. Our waiter was helpful in splitting our bills. I'd go back today. The giant tropical fish tanks added a special touch which made it feel like you were in the Islands. Aloha."

  • "The swordfish was about 1/2 the thickness I was expecting and my wife's ahi tuna also was thin and wasn't the traditional cut she was expecting. Wine and service were good. I was at another Kona Grill for happy hour and it was good for appetizers so, would try again for that."

  • "Eleven family members, including three fathers, went to Kona Grill for Father's Day. Six of us never even got our food, because after an hour of waiting (post food ordering!) we still had not received our food or any updates from our servers even though we asked and had informed them we had somewhere to be afterwards. The manager seemed inept and flustered, not knowing how to handle the situation. She kept insisting on wrapping our food to go although we had explained we were going to a movie and the food would be sitting in the car. Ultimately she offered us some free appetizer cards which we declined! They still tried to charge the five of our party that were able to continue to wait for their food! Very unfortunate Father's Day "meal"!"

  • "My husband and I decided to go out for a date night and wanted sushi since we don't have this often. After checking reviews for Kona Grill, we thought we would give it a try. Based on the website, it sounded as though we needed to dress dressy casual. Upon arriving, we noticed is was very casual. I thought that was odd because the menu was pricey. We thought since it was a nice evening that we would sit outside. Mistake #1. It was very noisy with the speakers blaring. We had trouble speaking to each other. The chairs were uncomfortable and the dining area was dirty. The server was ok even though we didn't see her much. The food was good. Beware of the wine/cocktail menu. Pinot Grigio is $14 a glass. We won't be returning."

  • "The food was good but we had to shout to our server and friends because it was so noisy! By the end of the night, my voice was hoarse. I would not go back."

  • "I had the fish tacos,they were very good. Wive had sea bass that was tasty. Also had the butter cake for the first time,it was sooo good. Came out warm & moist. Raspberry sauce I thought was a good compliment. A little to much for my wive. She thought the cake was great as is."

  • "The food wasn't bad but wasn't all that great. Small portions for the money. Calamari was overcooked and very bland. Wanted to try this place for a long time and was disappointed. Will not go back."

  • "Ordered Jambalaya which I have had many times before, including many locations around Lousiana. It was so hot, so very hot on the first 2 bites I considered it inedible. My brother tasted it and felt the same. I asked to exchange it for another meal. They were quite gracious in their apology and replacement; however, as others were finished eating the waitress told me it would be just another 10 minutes. At that point I asked that it be made To Go. I had my birthday dinner for lunch the next day. "

  • "After getting out from a 5 pm Drury Lane performance, we headed over to Kona Grill. Options for everyone, and they were willing to change the preparation of the fried rice for my Dad who has a shrimp allergy. The seasoning on the ribs was too spicy for my Mom, even with the five spice sauce on the side. The mahi was done perfectly. "

  • "Took the family to Kona Grill for Mother's Day dinner. Food was terrific and service was very good. Had a great time, though would say it was quite pricey for a night out with the kids."

  • "Our visit was marked by very good food and excellent service! We were impressed by the wide-ranging menu. There was something to please everyone in our party, from age 12 to 87. And the mojitos were terrific!"

  • "We have been to Kona Grill several times and have always been happy with the food and service. This last time, we took my cousin and his wife who came in from New Mexico. They absolutely loved Kona Grill. My wife has food allergies and they cook her food separately. Great customer service. "

  • "We went here for our anniversary and the food was delicious. Added Bonus was that the wine was 50% off!"

  • "We ordered two sushi rolls which were small and not tasty. The salad was also a disappointment. Not the quality of food we were expecting. I would not return."

  • "This was SOLID GOOD FOOD...creative sushi and a nice balance of different entree offerings. The wine list had a few notable options and anywhere that puts BREAD PUDDING on their menu typically doesn't disappoint - and Kona didn't disappoint. Portions were a good size and DIDN'T OVERSTUFF myself. I was in a big group on a Monday night and SERVICE WAS GREAT, the waiter was HELPFUL AND OFFERED SUGGESTIONS. At the end it was little slow (had to ask for a water refill/he was hard to find) but the waiter's attitude was great so he might have been stretched a little thin or wasn't getting the help he needed. OVERALL I would return because of the variety of choices offered with the friendly staff. "

  • "Usually on mother's day a restaurant is known to be packed and the service usually average at best. The wait staff was attentive, the waiter very pleasant and gracious and while the restaurant filled up during our meal, it was still warm and inviting. The menu options had something for everyone in our party and was a great hit. "

  • "We had a great experience for Mother's Day dinner with a large group. All twelve us had great meals and the kids menu was extensive and yummy. We would definitely come back again. Our server was excellent too. "

  • "We don't usually go out to dinner for holidays because of the crowds but decided we would try our luck with a last minute reservation. Pleasantly surprised that restaurant was full but they sat us right away. Chose this restaurant because of the varied menu because it's often hard to please everyone in my family. Everything was presented nicely and tasted great. I had the surf & turf special which was very good but lobster was a little scrimpy (literally 2 bites). Kids meal served in bento box was a cute idea. This was our first time to Kona Grill but I'm sure we'll be back."

  • "We were celebrating Mother's Day at Kona Grill on Sunday. All had a very enjoyable experience. The weather cooperated so sitting in the "open air" section was very pleasant. Our server was efficient and helpful. The food including dessert was excellent. We will return."

  • " We started with 2 glasses of water to begin with & both glasses were dirty and some fuzzy things were floating in our water. Our waitress brought out another water for my husband (i decided to order a drink instead) and that glass was dirty as well. The waitress apologized and brought out a bottle of water and again the glass was dirty and this time the waitress saw it before we did! I guess foruth time is the charm at this restaurant! Next came the entrees. My husband ordered the ribeye and it barely looked like a steak. It was super thin and overcooked. They don't list the weight of their steaks on the menu so the customer doesn't even know what they're getting! Out first time became our last time at this restaurant!"

  • "I experienced lunch after the lunch rush hour between 2-3. My waitress was not attentive to my table, I had to get my own chopsticks, and my sushi was falling apart. Food tasted great, but really lacked the experience I expected from a restaurant noted on open table with good reviews. It may be a long while before I go back."

  • "Food and service were good. My guest wanted to sit in the atrium but it was very cramped at the bar. Too many seats such that that you could barely squeeze in and there was a large table right behind us place too close for comfort. I enjoyed the sushi rolls and the steak was very good. Wine selection was pretty limited."

  • "So very happy we went there to celebrate my birthday! Very accommodating restaurant even for larger groups. Flexible and attentive wait staff. Wonderful specialty drinks with a tropical flair...I loved the Hibiscus drink with the candied orchid for decoration! Delicious food with generous portions, even kids meals were great and felt fun! I highly recommend their macadamia nut chicken, shortribs or sea bass. Sampled all three and loved them all! Beautiful, trendy decor and spacious location. Only drawback was the noise level...had to shout to hear people talk even in the restaurant part. It was very packed and crowded so not a lot of room for waiters to get around tables. All in all, top notch. I would go back and recommend in a heartbeat! "

  • "Had lunch at Kona Grill for the first time. My friend and I both ordered the Chicken Chopped Salad and it was very good. Sitting in the screened patio area in the afternoon sun felt better than the darker seating inside the restaurant. The service was very attentive. There was such variety on the menu including sushi, burgers, fish entrees, that I will definitely be back."

  • "We always enjoy going to Kona Grill. The apps are amazing. We had Sashimi really done well and sweet and spicy shrimp are great. The amount of choices are on the smaller side, but they change so everything we have tried there has been really good. The service is great too. The bar staff needs to pick it up, but they are attentive. They are not bartenders that you would expect in this type of place. They can pour a drink, but they are not really helpful."

  • "Everything was wonderful except the noise level, we have a group of 7 people and it was very hard to hear what the other people were saying because the music was too loud. Maybe the acoustics could be changed a little in the restaurant."
