While the restaurant advertises food cook fresh to suit your needs this is not 100% true. Meats are pre-marinaded so specific certain diet restrictions cannot be met. Food was excellent! Service was okay. New employee who seemed overwhelmed was our server. Overall totally worth checking this place out as the food is excellent.

I expected an unbeat, lit atmosphere Saturday night but sadly disappointed. It was boring. The bar was quiet. Service was extremely slow - sat there for at least 15 minutes before someone came to take our drink order. And then waited over 10 minutes for those drinks to come. The appetizer and entree came at the same time. So we had all these plates on the tiny table we were sitting at. I was expecting a vibe and I was disappointed

Great selection of food for family of all ages—we dined there with our kids and 8-year-old grandson, and everyone has a terrific meal. We sat out on the patio, so there was plenty of open space around us. The staff write their masks diligently, and the servers were efficient and attentive.

The waiter we had was good and the food was good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was not professional . I walked in and a bunch of people was standing at the front desk they didn't say anything like Welcome or can I help you they just continued with their conversation and when I said excuse me me the hostess caught an attitude. That was the feel of the whole place employees walking around but not working and they did not want you to interrupt them. I would come back but for carryout only because the food was good and the carrot cake was awesome. The restaurant definitely need to having a training on professionalism and how to treat the paying customer.

Very loud, crowded, very long wait. Medium-sized portions for premium price. Service was good, but waitress was profusely apologetic for the wait, which was about an hour for our food (we didn't order apps) and then another 30 minutes for dessert. Yes, we were there on a Saturday (and on an Orioles game day), but the wait and noise made for a poor dining experience overall.

We sat on the patio- which is right on a main street but very well buffered by beautiful landscaping. The interior seemed a little sterile so we opted for outdoors. Our server was fantastic! Super friendly, fun, and knew how to upsell us on everything. The carrot cake was worth the splurge! Energetic playlist and fun atmosphere. Seems like it turns into a fun night-club later in the evening. The avocado egg rolls are a must! Great music playlist, too.

The restaurant was nearly empty. They looked like they were short staffed with servers, so we understood that, but our food took about 50 minutes from the time we ordered until the first food was delivered. And we had 3 small kids with us. In addition, our server never communicated that there was an issue. Just left us to wonder what was going on.

Very noisy at the start, so I asked the waitress to lower the music to background levels. After that, I still had to raise my voice for my friends to hear me, because of the noise of other diners. Better, but not great.

My date and I enjoyed having dinner here. The music was what made the experience enjoyable. The food was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! OMG the avocado egg rolls were different and awesome. My date enjoyed the egg roll sauce. Yum!😋 The only thing that I wasn’t satisfied with was our server. Half the time she was nowhere to be found. Several times I had to ask another waiter to find her. After receiving our food I wanted chopsticks, so I had to go to the bar and someone gave me some because she took so long returning. It wasn’t till way after we were done and ready to leave that she realized our drinks needed to be refilled… mind you we only had water. Had she’d been more attentive, I was prepared to give her a $50 tip just because it was our first time there and we enjoyed ourselves. The food was awesome, but this chic was not her best even on a Friday mid evening.

Food was good, restaurant was quite nice and peaceful. Service was a bit disappointing. Seemed as if we hit the restaurant during a shift change. Had to wait 15 minutes to get our drinks ordered and couldn’t track down our waitress to pay at the end.

Okay overall, but will most likely not return.

Worst experience I have had at a Kona Grill. Most Kona’s I go to on a Sunday are busy in the afternoon. Should’ve known what I was walking into when it was dead at the time I arrived. Took longer than 5mins just to be greeted after we were seated. Then took at least another 5mins to get a couple of waters. Waiter showed ZERO energy or care or urgency. A manager came by and later provided better service. Observing the staff I noticed very little activity and a lot of socializing and phone scrolling.. While we were leaving we heard the front desk dropping F-Bombs… Just a terrible experience overall.

We had to wait 5 minutes before a hostess saw us to sit us but after that small hiccup we had a great dinning experience. There were only a handful of tables when we arrived at 5:30, our waiter Philip was awesome. When we come back we’d like to try the carrot cake because it looked massive at the table next to us. My sister lived in Baltimore for 2 years and this was her go to place that she recommended to us. Can’t wait to come back

It was terrible. I will never go back there. They were out of items and didn’t tell us until we ordered them. The waitress kept coming back to the table, seemingly impatient that we weren’t ready. Then of course when we were ready, she was nowhere to be found. The busboy was friendlier and more attentive than the waitress. The food was terrible, definitely not worth the prices. This Place masquerades as a nice restaurant. I will never eat here again
