    This was a wonderful dinner with my employees. Twice a year we chose a resturaunt in the area to dine at in celebration of a great team we have at our company. All of the ladies said that this place by far was the best yet. Enjoy

    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.

    The only complaint or concern, too loud. Could not carry a conversation without talking very loud. Food, service, attention to our children was exemplary. The noise level was very disconcerning.

    Good sushi, great salads, price increase like $19 for 2 slices of Macadamia Nut Chicken and deleting some items from the menu ie: Pan Asain Noodles will make me look at other choices before choosing Kona. Been a customer since day one.

    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.

    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.

    Food here is usually outstanding. However, this time my friend's meatloaf was obviously quite burnt on the outside. I was truly surprised that the kitchen sent it to our table. We complained, and received a total new lunch.

    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.
