    My wife and I went here for dinner on a Friday night. We decided to eat at the bar. Service was great. Really good happy hour specials on food and drinks. The sushi was excellent. So was the macadamia nut chicken.

    Kona Grill is an excellent restaurant. The valet employees, receptionist, wait staff and management have always been excellent. The food is never disappointing and is of excellent quality. Our waiter was a bit overextended on Saturday and service was a bit slow. Noise was up, but bearable, as typical of a busy Saturday night. It is one of our favorite places to dine.

    For the prices, the quality of the food and the service really stunk. The hostess stood there and talked to an employee, looked at as, talked some more, then finally came over to greet us. Our server seemed frantic, though they weren't that busy. She would drop something off at our table and leave without saying a word before we had a chance to ask for anything! My fiancé's sushi didn't look or taste fresh. That being said... Not sure that we'll hurry back here.

    I have heard so much rave about this place but I wasn't blown away. I ordered Hot Sake and it was served cold. We got our food a few minutes after our soup and salads. Way too many plates on table. I ordered Sushi because that's what they are known for but it was just ok.

    Our service was only 2 stars I believe the girl at Subway helped me better. for a fine dining restaurant it was more noisy then a raging night club the prices for food To portion size is horrible I would give it 2 stars. food flavor was very good. 4 stars sushi was amazing love those Vegas Rolls. Overall for the amount of high end dining establishments me and my wife visit. We should have went to leo's coney island. Instead at least there it's quiet and with the money we would have saved well who knows what the night would bring.

  • Go during happy hour
    CharnedVIP
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    I've been here twice now: once for happy hour with my friends, and once for dinner with my family. Go during happy hour. The food is so-so (delightfully plated, I will concede), but well worth the happy hour prices. In fact, it may be the best happy hour in Troy. If you do go during dinner, get a salad to share for the table. The chopped salads at Kona are ACTUALLY chopped, which is a nice treat (not having to force a 3-inch piece of lettuce into your mouth like you're folding vegetable origami with your teeth). I gave service three stars because the dinner waiter gave us sass for not ordering obesity-inducing amounts of food, and forgot to refill our water before dessert. Happy hour service on the patio was friendly and accommodating.
