Kona Grill - Baltimore Ratings and Reviews
we had a great time, staff was friendly, drinks were cold, sushi was great, the main courses we had ordered turned out very tasty and nice portions aswell .
we had 1 out of six that was not completely satisfied with there meal (it was a steak and thought it was over cooked) didn't complain.
the desserts we had were crazy big (like we had been warned) and vey good! (finished them up the next day!)
enjoyed it over all, i would recommend it and would love to come back the next time i am in town!!
They were very nice and accomodating! We were 45 minutes late for our reservation because our show ran over and even though we were late and there was a wait, they still honored our reservation and seated us as quickly as possible. The food was great, although the service is a little slow. However, we were a group in no rush to leave so we were ok with the service being a little slow. This is the second time we have been there and both times the service was slow. The sushi is great and very fresh! The sushi order does arrive quickly, so the slow service has to do more with the kitchen than anything. We will still go back again!
Went for my husbands birthday will we were in town. We ordered a couple appetizers ( potstickers and shrimp tempura) both of these were good . We each ordered a sushi roll. The sushi was boring and average a best ... I ordered the Atlantic roll it had smoked salmon in it but it literally taste and looked like a weird tuna salad and had no sauces or anything to enhance the taste. My husbands roll was a spicy shrimp and had same issue the shrimp was chopped and mixed to fine into a paste and it was called a fiery roll but had no spice was more sweet.
Maybe they were short staffed but we arrived for our reservation and waited 10 minutes before the hostess reappeared. She then told us a table needs to be cleared and it would take another 10 minutes (we could see half the restaurant was empty). Before we could say anything she said there’s free-seating near the bar. So we went there. Every unoccupied table was dirty. We stopped a waiter and asked him to clean a table for us. We spent 1.5 hour there. All the table around us remained dirty. Our food took an unusual amount of time to arrive (almost 45 minutes for 2 sushi rolls). Seems like they need to learn how to organize considering it wasn’t even busy.
Great food, friendly servers and hostess..............but the service is painfully slow........this has happened at the least the last three times I have been there. Please do what it takes (and don't say that quality will suffer as 3 of our 4 lunches came out--although very good--not what was ordered--salads weren't tossed and mixed vegetables is not bok choy
My friend and I had dinner to celebrate my birthday. I appreciated the $15 off coupon received in the mail. Really Cool!!
Our waitress Nicole was fantastic. Her personality was infectious and she was attentive to our needs and request throughout the evening.
The food was incredible and well-prepared. Possibly, the best fish we have dine in in years.
I’ll be back😊
Some of the worst service I’ve experienced in a long time. We were not asked if we would like to order drinks but were rushed by the surly waiter to immediately place an order for food. I don’t know when I’ve felt more like I was inconveniencing someone than I did when encounters Ng our waiter. Several plates were brought out and then 10-15 minutes later a couple more and the food nap meal was served as the first of our group was finishing up. Sushi was good but the meals from me the kitchen were very bad, including pad Thai that was inedible pasty. Never again.
As always this restaurant provided phenomenal service and great food. My group goes every year for New Year’s Eve with a mix of adults and small children. They are very accommodating from when we show up (even with having more people than we reserved for;) to when we leave. Everyone we encounter are so nice and friendly and go out of their way to help and serve us. The food and drinks are wonderful too. We all love this place!
overall, this was a great fit for my vegan and GF dining companions for a casual Xmas eve dinner. our only issue, relatively minor, was that our 2nd round of drinks weren't made correctly. our awesome server acknowledged this was true, and went back to the bartender to correct our beverages. we were surprised to hear that the new bartender had already closed down the bar and she was unwilling to remake them, such that the manager had to do it instead. a bartender that refuses to make drinks (or remake drinks that weren't correct) sounds like an unemployed bartender, or one that should be.
Jilani made the evening very special for us. We had dinner reservations post a very wet and unexpectedly cold Ravens game. Jilani delivered our much needed hot tea promptly and engaged some very soggy fans. His recommendations for the meal and coordinated the flow of our dinner with the kitchen well. The special treat was the HUGE carrot cake everyone received on Christmas Eve-Eve (the 23rd) added a nice festive touch to the restaurant atmosphere and had every guest leaving with the memory of a great meal and a welcoming and friendly staff. Well done! Not only will the 505+ parents return, the 21 yr old and 19yr were very impressed with the liveliness of the spot and potential as a hot spot (when the younger is the appropriate age of course).
We ahve been here before and loved it then. We were even more impressed on this second visit. We don't usually come to Baltimore but when we do come Kona Grill will be a go-to location for us. Even sitting next to a party of 10 wasn't too bad. My wife and I shared the Pad Thai and got our own sushi rolls. Very affordable and yet quality far surpasses the price. Give it a try!
The food and staff at Kona Grill Baltimore was just outstanding and pleasing to everyone's diverse tastes. We were greeted in a prompt, friendly, and professional manner and seated immediately where within seconds our wait-staff was attending to our every needs. The drinks were fresh and delightful, the water was nicely chilled and refreshed frequently. The menu was filled with surprises and the wait-staff knew about each dish and how to describe them to fit our taste buds. I invite you to try the Melted Smoked Gouda with pretzel bits and apples, wow!
However, there were many other choices that I also wanted to choose from for our first course too, next time...another appetizer.
Our proteins of beef and chicken were amazing alsong with the starches and fresh veggies cooked perfectly...amazing asparagus! We hit the dinner rush just before the showtimes, but that did not stop the staff from producing the right amount of food for the entire house and they even had two checkouts so that there was no delay in processing your check and to be on your way. We however, stayed around to relax and we were never asked to move or put pressure on in any way.
We did see the management staff being extremely helpful and engaging with the customers and we want to thank the General Mangager Jay for even stopping by to see that we were enjoying our evening and our meal. How wonderfully professional that he would greet anyone in his resturant! Great location with plenty of parking in the area and right next to the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland; the convention center and short walks to Oriole Park and Ravens Stadium.
Enjoy your dining experience!
The first time that I have gone to a Kona Grill. It is not bad but not memorable. Usually when you try to do as much as they do by way of your menu, you get mediocracy. Its great for a quick bite or if you are looking for something between bar food and a really nice restaurant.
