    Overpriced for items we ordered and did not enjoy meal at all. We were a party of 8 adults and I would say most of us had a problem trying to figure out what we would eat. When we finally did the items were disappointing and not enjoyable. Will not frequent this restaurant again.

    Several of my former co-workers and I have been coming to Kona Grill for a couple years now. Way for us to get together and keep in touch. It's a great setting for groups as we are sometimes a party of 10 to 14. Food/drinks are good but service is even better but depends who you get though. Our last get together 11/14, service was on the ball. Thank you.

    We were there to celebrate a special occasion that I noted on our reservation. The manager came over with a bottle of champagne and champagne flutes on the house!!!! This was the start of a great evening. Service was excellent and they took great care of one of our party with a food allergy. All our dishes were great.

    I regularly go to this restaurant - and usually love it. For the first time ever, the service was very, very slow. It took nearly an hour for our dinner to come out. I ordered sushi for dinner. My friend ordered an appetizer for dinner. There was a modest apology from the server, but we were still really annoyed.

    On-line reservation was convenient & flawless, Dee, our server, was pleasant, informative, proud of her establishment & of her service. she guided us through the wine, & menu selections. We loved the wine selections, especially when Dee just "rattled them off" from memory. The food selection was excellent (first time Kona diners) & has more than earned a return visit. The highlight for me was being greeted at the door by a smiling & friendly start to our great dining experience

    The sandwich/side portions were small. The chicken sandwich was mostly bread with very little chicken. They didn't ask how I wanted my fish sandwich cooked, and it came out pretty much raw and cold. I sent it back, and the cooked sandwich was much better. The food was ok...nothing spectacular. I thought the price was a bit high considering the so/so quality of food and small portions.

    My wife & I were celebrating our anniversary. When we got to the door at Kona Grill we were asked if we preferred to sit inside or out. Our waiter was very knowledgable & friendly. He even took our picture for us. The atmosphere was good, the good was excellent. When we were done with dinner our waiter brought us a creme brûlée - on the house - to share for our anniversary. It was very thoughtful, & greatly appreciated. That's the kind of service you don't see everywhere. I would definitely return to Kona Grill & highly recommend it. Ice already told friends about our great experience.

    I had not been to Kona for about 2 years. Last trip in the area we visited several times as everything was very good. This time I find drinks that as full of ice as they could, food that was ok, and service that was not up to what I expected. Maybe just one bad night but disappointing.

    We met here for the date night to celebrate my new internship and it turned out to be simply amazing. We have been to so many restaurants till date and by far this was way better than the popular Olive Garden, Cheesecake Factory or Macaroni Grill. The ambience was awesome and the peppy music just made it even better. Will definitely come here again.

    So the good news about Kona Grill is that they have something for everyone. Their menu is very different, focusing on Asian style dishes, but they have many choices. Overall the service was okay. They do have excellent drinks though. I had the white Sake Sangria and it was excellent. I also had the Pad Thai which was better than I expected.

    Service was not so great this time- it took a ridiculaousls long time to get on simple appetizer (edamame) and the server didn't even check in to let us know about any delays. Also, do not get the pineapple honey mojito- unless you enjoy drinking cough syrup. The food here is pretty good, but the service will have me think twice before returning.

    This is a fun place to meet friends for a drink and a nice meal. The fish entree was fantastic! I was disappointed with the calamari and the flat bread appetizer. Calamari was gummy and the flat bread too thick and hard for the toppings. Nice atmosphere and decor. Really fun place.

    Food was very good, patio was great for Mother's Day since the weather was nice. Overall, a good experience. Service was not very good, took a long time to order and to get in touch with our server. One positive - my husband has a shellfish allergy and she mentioned one of the dishes was made with oyster sauce which was nice of her.

    They took our reservation for 8:00 pm, got there at 7:50pm and hostess said "table not ready yet", ok we are a little early. An hour later after complaining multiple times and being told " the party is leaving the table now, it will be 5 more minutes" many times, they finally sat us at 2 booths. Will never go back and it is a shame because our server was great and the food was decent too.
