Diner Reviews
  • "We ate at Kona for a family celebration. The restaurant was very busy & noisy, but we were seated at a large booth in the corner & it was very cozy & quiet. The service was fast & very attentive. All of our meals were very good, with half ordering from the sushi menu. Everything was as we ordered and very good! Special mention to the Sea Bass & Flatbread Pizza, which were both exceptional!"

  • "My wife and I dined at Kona Grill recently. The food was very good (especially the sweet and spicy salmon) and their sushi rolls were excellent. As a non experienced sushi "orderer" I really appreciated the time that our server took to walk us through our choices. It was an excellent experience overall, and while it was a decent amount of money, I would absolutely dine there again! A special thanks to Flame for her outstanding service, front to back during our visit!"

  • "Made reservations for 10 for father's day and husband's birthday. They seated us in a private dining room and the waitress was very attentive. Sushi is awesome for reasonable price. We made several special requests which they accommodated readily. Been to Happy Hour several times and atmosphere and pricing are super."

  • "We had the Macadamia nut chicken and the chicken was so tough to the point we couldn't eat it. My husbands mashed potatoes were cold. We were with a large party so we didn't complain, but we will never eat there again."

  • "Kona Grill gives all new meaning to the term "fast food". The service is so rushed that it feels like they're pushing you out the door as fast as they can. We ordered an appetizer, and it was delivered to our table (no kidding) two minutes later, before our drinks arrived. Even our waitress was surprised how quick it arrived. It wasn't hot in the middle, so we know it wasn't made fresh for us. About 3 minutes after ordering our main course our salads arrived. Then, our entrees showed up right afterwards. We'd been seated for exactly 15 minutes - and already we had our app, our salads, and our entrees. At 6:20 the check was dropped off. I hate spending $65 for dinner only to be given the bum's rush. It really was uncomfortable."

  • "It had been a while since we visited Kona Grill - Omaha. Glad to see some new items on the menu. It was busy on Mothers Day but nothing unusual for the restaurant. Food was slow to come. We asked that our daughters kid meal come with the appetizer. Her meal did not come until after we (3 of us) received our meals. Food was okay - not warm enough - like it had sit in the kitchen for a while. Service was good but it seemed the kitchen was overwhelmed. Overall, not as good as previous visits."

  • "Creating an online reservation was fantastic and easy. Upon arrival, we were seated immediately (no waiting). The service was fast and enjoyable. We received a discount because we were celebrating our 30th Anniversary. I would recommend this to all my friends and co-workers. The waitress was very attentive to our every need, never once did we wait for drinks or food."

  • "Overall experience was ok. I had made reservations for 3. The third person was meeting us, so we decide to go ahead and sit down. When the third person showed up and spoke to the hostess asking where we were sitting, she said that we weren't they and asked if she wanted to cancel the reservation. My friend then said several times that she knew we were there and the hostess kept saying we were not. The hostess did not allow her to walk around the restaurant to find us, but was allowed to walk around the bar area. Eventually, she did get to sit down with us."

  • "We had reservations for 745, arrived at 730 and were seated promptly. The macadmian chicken was excellent. Kona is the only place I order chicken and it's always perfect! I tried a coconut mojito and it was fine. The service was friendly and attentive without being annoying. Didn't get one but the desserts looked great."

  • "We were visiting from out of town and had enjoyed eating at the Kona in the Detroit area so we thought we'd try Kona Omaha. We were not disappointed! We had to change the time of our reservation and Kona staff were very happy to do that. The service was attentive, menu questions were answered, and even our person with dietary restrictions was made to feel welcome and appreciated. I can't say enough about the food. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their entrees! Kona will not disappoint you!"

  • "Great for large groups, The varied menu choices made it easy for both kids and adults to find something they liked. Food was very good and the atmosphere relaxed --not rushed through the meal. A little pricey so save this for a special occasion."

  • "The food is great and it is a very popular place which makes for a loud environment. It is a great place to go and have a drink on the patio or a nice dinner with friends in the dinning room."

  • "There were 6 of us in a booth. Probably not the best for 6 adults. Also the main course food was just ok. Not good considering the price charged. I don't mind paying more if the food knocks my sox off... The main dishes did not. However the dessert did. We had Bread pudding and the carrot cake. Yum. Other than that I loved being able to do the online reservation and the waitress was good. Our group had a very nice evenng."

  • "We went to Kona Grill Friday night with reservations for 4. We had another person join our party, but the wait was less than 5 minutes, and we still got in before our 6:00 reservation. Friday night is not the time to dine, unless you are there for happy hour with loud friends. We were there to catch up with friends and enjoy a nice sushi meal with wine. The place was so loud we couldn't hear our own table talk. We informed. our waitress and the host who came by to check on our meal and both just shrugged it off to "that's how it is". Other than that the sushi and wine were great."

  • "This was our first visit to Kona. We did not know what exactly to expect when we went. It was every busy when we arrived and extremely noisy. Even though we were 10 minutes early for our reservation, the hostess apologized for being behind. Our waitress was very friendly and quick. My wife had their sushi and really enjoyed it. I had their Big Kahuna Burger with cheese and bacon. The burger was pretty good, not great though. The sushi was very good and presented well. The dessert with the butter cake and ice cream was very good. The noise level was high and it made it hard to have a conversation. The men's restroom was dirty and had a smell. The women's restroom was much cleaner. Those would be my only complaints about the place."

  • "Overall I was very impressed with our Valentine's dinner at Kona Grill. Every dish that came out to our table not only tasted fantastic, but was presented beautifully. Perhaps the only thing keeping this from a 5-star rating was my salmon. It was significantly drier than I would have preferred, but in the end was still enjoyable. As far as the service, they knocked it out of the park in my opinion. Our waitress was extremely friendly and made sure we were virtually never without drinks. Overall a very good experience; 'twas just a tad unfortunate I had a little bad luck on the salmon."

  • "Its very sad when you make a reservation and you still have to wait more than half and hour and also awhile waiting there is no room in the lounge to sit. The staff doesn't tell us sorry or anything like that. Server was not that great we had to wait a long time just to get our drink refilled and she tried to let order the food faster."

  • "Normally I like Kona a lot and do not have complaints. We had made reservations in advanced for 6pm since it was Valentines day. When we arrived (on time) we were informed that they were running "a bit behind" on reservations, when I asked how long she said they were currently sitting the 5:45 and then they would be sitting the other 6pm who arrived before us. We finally got seated around 6:40. When I looked around there were 3-4 tables open and remained open for another 15 minutes before anyone was sat there. I liked our waiter a lot, but he was definitely bombarded with tables. He was very personable and did give thoughts and suggestions to our menu. He did forget our sushi, and apologized many times. Food was warm not hot."

  • "We had 5:00 pm reservations to avoid the high traffic time to make sure we had good service etc. The food was good but at the end I asked our waitress to put our food into a take home container and add a piece of carrot cake for us for when we got home. She brought back a sack with two take home containers in it. We paid and left. We live 30 miles from Omaha and by 9:00pm we were ready to share that carrot cake at home watching the Olympics. Well, guess what? No carrot cake! She put the sushi and small amount of green beans in two containers. We were bummed out. We liked the food but will probably not return because of service. There are a lot of nice places in Omaha to try."

  • "I really enjoy the sushi and rolls. Great place to go with others that might not like sushi as the rest of the menu is varied and everyone should be able to find something they like. If you are not into a bistro type environment (noise level can get up there on Friday and Saturday nights), then this is not the place for you. They do not take call ahead seating. They also have a late night reverse happy hour."

  • "Though the staff was friendly and they corrected errors with my wife's meal, the overall dining experience was not so good. The alas was incomplete based on the menu description and looked as if it had been thrown on the plate randomly. The dessert was described as warm apple bread pudding was cold and therefore not as appealing."

  • "I like to bring my staff to Kona Grill for special lunches. However, the wait time is ridiculous! We continuously wait over 30 minutes from the time of ordering until our food is delivered. This is not acceptable when trying to fit lunch into a work day. We'll go elsewhere from now on."
