We love coming here for happy hour
It is fairly noisy during happy hour, but the food and drinks are great. We love their bar and patio area, too!

Food and service were very good. Decor, ambiance was very good. Got seated right away which we were happy about.
Only one thing, we didn't care for -- the music from the bar was kind of loud and did not fit the mood of the restaurant. They were playing like disco music.

Perfect Birthday Dinner
Appetizers - delicious. Entrees - divine. Desserts - outstanding! The Avocado Egg Rolls and Papaya Creme Brulee were the hits of the night.

Thumbs up – very good!
Enjoyed a "girls night out" with friends -- food was delicious and the service very attentive. Nice setting (on the loud side though). I would come back again.

Food was excellent. Server was outstanding - so friendly, solicitous without being overbearing, always nearby but never hovering. Manager came by several times to see if things were ok - service impeccable from top to bottom. Food was fresh, plentiful but not grossly sized portions -- and quite tasty!!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's all good!
We were first timers and we will be back! Everything was good. The portions were ones you could actually finish. We all enjoyed it.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time - food was prepared perfectly. Lobster was cooked to perfection.
Made the wife happy, and that's all that matters!

It's All About The Sea Bass!
Kona Grille's Miso Sake Sea Bass is delectable! One of our favorite meals anywhere . . .ever. A melt-in-your-mouth delight. Also, we asked for calamari with mostly "squiggles" instead of rings and were thrilled with this delicate appetizer: lightly dusted with breading and served with a delicious sauce. You can't beat the 1/2 price wine on Wednesday and you can take home any wine left over in your bottle with their sealed wine "doggie"-bag. One of our favorite restaurants. Aloha!

More than a luau!
The name Kona brings to mind Hawaii. This restaurant has it all: salads, sandwiches, sushi, entrees, drinks, desserts, etc. There's something for everyone! This is a must. The half price menu items during certain hours was an added bonus! Do yourself a favor and visit soon!

Our theater group of seven enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Kona Grill after seeing South Pacific. Our waiter was patient and knowledgeable in answering questions about items on the menu.
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been here many times. Food and sushi is always great. Service is usually very good and manager always stops by the table to see if all was good. High recommend to all.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the view from outdoor glass enclosed room, while sampling many appetizers. Food was very tasty.

Whent to Kona with my husband, it was very nice for us to just sit and talk while having a nice drink.The food was excellent all around. Never thought I would like sushi soo much. Will definately go again.

We arrived early for our reservatio
We arrived early for our reservation and were promptly seated. The menu is divided into 2 sections - kitchen and sushi. We opted for the sushi and were not disappointed. Each roll that we had was delicious. The sushi rolls are listed in order heat. We did order 1 or 2 of the ones that were to be spicy, but I found their taste, while good, not paricularly spicy. Next time I go I am going for the meatloaf tower. Sounds real yummy.

On e again we ate at Kona - and t is always excellent. Out waiter Timothy made t stand out with his superb service!

Salmon salad was excellent.
Salmon salad was excellent. Rolls were good. Server was terrific--knowledgeable, friendly attentive, but not overly so. She had a great personality.

Bargain Happy Hour
The many half-priced selections for Kona's happy hour make for a relatively inexpensive outing. The portions are very generous. The enclosed patio overlooking the pond and wetlands. Makes for a very pleasant setting.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food, also great for watching the game...bar area and covered outdoor dining have big screen TV's
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a lovely time. The waiter was very helpful and explained everything. I guess the bar was a little backed up. He did have them make a cosmopolitan martini and substituted beef for chicken in my pad thai at no extra charge. Very accommodating.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was tired of the usual restaurants - this was different and the food was fantastic! Coffee and wine were great and the variety was superb.

50th birthday lunch
My daughters and I took my husband out for his 50th birthday. We needed a quick lunch that offered good food, good service and vegetarian/seafood. We achieved all. We have been there before for their happy hour and enjoy this as well. Not the best sushi I have ever had, but still good and good service.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu variety, great food
We went on a Saturday night and were seated right away because we had a reservation (others who walked in in front of us without a reservation were told there was a 10-15 min wait). Service throughout our entire meal was prompt and very courteous.
Service was excellent, menu is very well labeled (raw, shellfish, nuts, spicy) and there was great variety on the menu for our family of 4. My 9 yo was excited anout the kids menu and she has plans for what she'd like to order next time.
The sushi was excellent.
Our experience was even better than we expected (we didn't expect an okay experience, we expected a nice night out!) and we will definitely return!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great new food choices!
Really enjoyed the new menu. Service by Alana was phenomenal.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Interesting Food Choices
I had a guest visiting from out of town and made reservations for 6:30 on a Friday evening. When I checked in at the reservation desk, we were immediately taken to our booth. I was really surprised as the place was packed! My guest is a gourmet cook and has attended several cooking classes, both here and abroad, so I was looking for a really great place with a varied, creative menu. The Kona Grill met and exceeded all my requirements. She was impressed with the wide variety of food choices and our dinners were excellent! In addition, our waiter was very pleasant, prompt and accommodating and even though the place was extremely busy, he didn't act "hurried" and didn't rush us. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience!

"Sushi and more"
They have sushi...prices are a bit high...but many of their offerings have a twist of imagination, like the "angry" edamame served with a spicy coating instead of plain old salt. They offer many dishes besides sushi. I'm anxious to try more.

night out with the girls
We had a most enjoyable night out with the girls. Food was great and a fun atmosphere. Especially loved the Sangria.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this restaurant
My only complaint ever is that it is loud, if you are looking for quiet, intimate, this isnt the place. Food and service are great. Out door/ indoor part is really nice
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My fiance and I love coming to Kona. We usually come for the happy hour menu, which is the best we have ever found. The menu choices as well as the prices will keep us coming back for many, many more visits!
8/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Of all the restaurants we visit for our birthday get-togethers Kona Grill was one of the best ones. The atmosphere was relaxed, the food was good and the noise level was perfect for talking. We will definitely return another time in order to try different items on the menu.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a very nice time at the Kona Grill. All four of our meals (2 adults, 2 kids) tasted very good and we served promptly. The restaurant has a little bit of a chain feel to it, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. We would definitely go back.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food and Volume
Kona Grill has excellent sushi/sashimi and main dishes. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. We had mahi-mahi and pan-seared ahi. Both were presented well on the plates and came in very short order. The only downside was that it was a Friday night and very loud. Hard to carry on a conversation. The upside was that everyone was having a great time.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The miso saki sea bass was out of this world. Lots of options from sushi to steak. Our waitress, Lilly, became our new best friend.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little bit of everything
The menu features sushi but also has flatbread-type pizzas plus sandwiches, so plenty to choose from if your spouse doesn't like sushi (mine doesn't but I left him at home). Pot stickers were just okay. The chicken satay with peanut dipping sauce and hoisin dipping sauce was delicious. Served on a bed of spicy coleslaw which deserves to be eaten as well. Tried 3 rolls: soft shell crab was a hit, rainbow roll was great too. Spicy shrimp was a bit too spicy and filled with ground shrimp instead of whole. Save room for HUGE desserts! Brownie sundae fed 3 , banana cream pie - 2, or feed 1 with a red velvet cupcake instead of a whole slice. Excellent cream cheese frosting. Nice place for dinner after a play at the Marriott Theatre.

Great Restaurant except for dessert
We loved everything from the avocado egg rolls to the chicken Chilli. We splurged on dessert and were impressed by the size of the portion. Unfortunately both the banana cream pie and apple bread pudding were very dry and over cooked. Other than that, the meal was great!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was good
First time at Kona Grill...nice menu great selection and great sushi...enjoyable.

Great service and Sea Bass
Our sever was outstanding and I love the Sea Bass and so did my business guest. I will be back!

Great Happy Hour
The delightful setting on a pond makes for a pleasant afternoon. The wonderful ahi tuna crisps are a real bargain. Little did we know that Wednesdays also feature half off wine bottles. Super spot with great food.

We got seated right away. We had a great waiter. The food was great. I also love the half price appetizers on the patio.

Great Happy Hour!
We came with a group of about 16 people or so, right after work on a Friday. Of course we made reservations, but the staff really was very accommodating! Our server, Carol Ann, was very nice, friendly and accurate, though a little bit slower due to the # of tables she had. Food and drinks were good, but the best part, as always - the Happy Hour prices! Can't go wrong with many drink specials and 1/2 price appetizers from 5-7PM. Good times.

Mixed Service, Perfect Food
The waiter, Pat, was amazing. The girl who checked us in, terrible. We told her we had reservations at 6:30pm, and she acknowledged us in the computer and said it would only be a minute. 25 minutes later, she's seating anyone and everyone who comes in off the street while we're standing 5 feet from her, watching this unfold. Finally my husband went and asked her what the problem was and her response was "oh I didn't know you had reservations". Sorry, she absolutely did know. We told the manager about it and his excuse was she was busy with all the Homecoming diners. You mean the diners who were already seated and eating? Odd how they would be keeping her busy.....extremely unimpressed with those two staff members. Loved our waiter.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed the Sea Bass and Ahi Tuna. Nice array of menu selections.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had dinner with another couple. Blake, our server, was outstanding. Attentive without being overly attentive. Had the calamari and avocado egg rolls for apps. Calamari was excellent. Very tender, perfectly breaded. The egg roll was like guacamole in an egg roll wrapper. Not a fav. Everyone enjoyed their entree. Will definitely go back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dine here often as we only
We dine here often as we only live a few miles from this spot. We are always pleased with the food and service. We brought some friends to this dining and this was their first time at Kona. They were equally pleased and no doubt will be back.
