    Loved Kona Grill in the past. This time there were fruit flies buzzing around our table the entire time. They moved us but, the flies came, too. There was a big in our soup as well. The manager was awesome - he apologized and deducted money from our final bill. Still, not the experience we had come accustomed to. Not sure if we will return - so disappointing!

    I realize that the sound of high-pitched laughter, babies crying, and loud toasts from a table of 12, is a sign of a popular restaurant. My husband and I, seated in a booth, had to scream in order to carry on any kind of conversation. We finally gave up. The food was ok. The potstickers were too crispy for my taste, the salad was drenched in dressing--my chicken entree was fine. Our server was excellent, but there was nothing to do done about the noise and confusion and chaotic nature of the restaurant. We won't be back. Oh yes, my husband's sushi was outstanding. Maybe sushi is the way to go at Kona Grill. If you can stand the noise!

    Dinner was amazing. Server was excellent. The only thing was the host who sat us down looked very unpleasant, unhappy, and did not say one word to us such as "come this way" or anything when we even sat down. She was very awkward and started the dinner out not positive especially since it was the first dining experience for two of my friends. Luckily we got an awesome server which made the experience better.

    We visited Kona Grill for a family celebration, the food was awesome, the waitress and manager were very attentive to our needs, and it was a wonderful evening. The noise level made visiting with each other a bit difficult. We had a child with us, and were delightfully surprised at the care and attention that went into her food preparation, including sculpting an orange into an animal shape. We were a little surprised at the crowd for a Tuesday night, which made parking for some in our party problematic.

    Love the Sushi cut @ Kona & the Volcano "roll", though not as spicy as noted, was superb. The down side... Way too noisy. Fun place for bar life & large groups, but if you're hoping for table conversation, forget it.

    The noise level is positively unreal. I really do not know how people can go there and expect to carry on a meaningful conversationl. I would never go there on a business luncheon nor would I ever take friends there for dinner if conversation were to be a part of the evening. It turns out to be a shouting match.

    The food at Kona Grill was delicious and the service was great! This was our first time (for everyone at the table) at Kona and we were all very impressed and would definitely eat there again. We were there for lunch on a Sunday, so it was quiet and not very busy yet. Our server was very friendly. I am looking forward to having dinner there very soon with my family.

Overall still one of my favorite go-to places for a nice, casual and tasty experience with friends.

    I'd been to kona a few years and remembered not being very thrilled by it but I decided to try again- bad idea. Once we got in we were seated right away, but it took out waiter 10 minutes to even greet us. We ordered a bottle of wine and ten minutes later it arrived. The wine was delicious, the 15 fruit flies around the table landing on my food and wine were not delicious, it actually ruined the meal. We tried to ignore them but that wasn't an option either because there was a swarm. The waiter was not very attentive and only stopped to take our order and drop off the bill. The manager stopped by but we were ready to leave at that point.

    I hadn't seen my parents in approximately six months and decided I would treat them to dinner while I was in town. Kona Grill was my favorite restaurant before I moved to NYC. I frequented happy hour in the patio area. It was nice to see that the patio area has remained packed since my last visit to Kona (about 2 years). I made our reservation through OpenTable and alerted the restaurant that this was a special occasion. When the hostess took us to our table she assured me that our server would take excellent care of us. Lisa did not disappoint one bit. Lisa took extra care of my parents. She was extremely knowledgable and friendly while still maintaining a poised and professional decor during her service. What a great experience!
