    We went for lunch in Saturday and had a great experience. The calamari in aioli sauce was very good and my ahi-tuna with rice had one of the most beautiful presentation I have ever seen. Overall great place.

    Given that Kona Grill is a chain, the food is quite good. We had a very enjoyable meal and would return. My son had the meatloaf and felt the portion was quite small compared to what he had gotten in the past. I had the rib-eye steak sandwich which was excellent. My daughter had the lobster mac and cheese which she enjoyed greatly. It was a pretty good value for what you got. Service was excellent; waitress was very attentive.

    Acceptable dining experience for a Tuesday evening. Our party of 4 had drinks before dinner (2 glasses of wine + mojito) which took a long time to make their way to the table. finally we asked for the wine to be brought first, then the mojito followed a few minutes later. the bar was not busy so i don't know what was the reason for the delay other than the server may have forgotten to place the order with the bar. after we sat down, food was actually quite good, served promptly by a friendly server. the sauce the calamari comes with was excellent. we also had the flat bread (very good), rib eye (good), spicy shrimp (good) and salmon salad (very good). a solid performance by the restaurant even though it was fairly empty on Tuesday.

    In a word, disappointing. With Capital Grill and Mitchell's right next store, Kona is going to have to step up. A lot. The food was okay, but the service, despite having both a trainee and the server/trainer was terrible. Just getting the water glass filled required a wait and a request - every time. We will not be back.

    They were out of a number of items on the menu, but the items that we finally did get were very good. Server was friendly and responsive, but our appetizers arrived after our entrees. it's a nice place for some good Asian themed food at reasonable prices, but don't expect perfection in its delivery.

The food was excellent; the service could not have been more attentive all night, and when I asked for a drink that I thought was on their menu but wasn't, the bar tender and waitress collaorated and created it for me. We've always had a good time at Kona Grill, but Saturday night definitely topped everything!

    First time to a Kona Grill and we really enjoyed the food. A lot of children inside restaurant with parnets letting them run around and make plenty of noise. Except for that, we look forward to sating there agian. The fish was very fresh and plenty of it. Just wish adults would control their children when in a restaurant so not to ruine other peoples dining experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003VIP
    Dined on 8/24/2010
    I took my kids to meet a friend for lunch for her birthday. The hostess asked if I'd like the server to bring a dessert with a candle and I said that would be nice. We loved the "perfect pairing" menu. The kids didn't eat much of their food. I ordered the mac and cheese with no panko, which helped. The sliders had an odd flavor and my daughter wouldn't eat them at all. The brownie and ice cream dessert was good and a nice surprise for my friend. I was surprised that I was charged for the dessert. Most places give a free dessert on a birthday. It was only $4, which was a good value, but I was still surprised because the hostess hadn't mentioned the cost.
