Had a burger and the meat was practically raw when asked to be cooked to medium. Had a roll of sushi, then they forgot soy sauce and chopsticks. Overall, way too pricey for what it was. Tasted alright, but not worth $18 for each thing.

Had a friend visiting from out of state & brought her here since I've always enjoyed my dinner at Kona's. Table selection was awful, either a 2 seater smack dab in middle of dining room all by ourselves, table right inside front door or end booth (open on both sides) which we took. Tables are too far from seating and had sit so far up in the seat to eat, my back not touching. My favorite dish, Miso-Sake Bass, was sadly undercooked and out of Bokchoy, so subbed in broccoli rabe (with my permission). Brownie dessert was awful, too big and brownies were so hard, but waitress took off our bill. No decaf available...really? Our visit must have been between grocery deliveries? Staff is always nice and I appreciate them. I do understand that this was an off night, but it was disappointing to bring my out-of-state friend and have her think that this was a standard night at one of my faves!

Kona is easily my favorite restaurant in the valley. I’ve been eating sushi since I was a kid and I can confidently say that Kona has delicious sushi! We’ve been many times and have tried plenty of things other than sushi though, and it never disappoints! Make a reservation if you’re going on a weekend, and you don’t want to wait.

Macadamia Chicken is great - especially with the Oriental Salad. Note: The outdoor seating is not ideal (wicker seats are too low for the table height - and I am over 6'.

Their website indicates quiet dining and american cuisine. Its neither. Although the servers were nice the menu was mostly Asian cuisine and it was too noisy to even carry on a conversation.

Food is really good! All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our 4 different entrees! Drink menu is good, could use a few more martini (mixed cocktail) selections. Our only negative comment was that there was 5(!) people at the front desk when we arrived and one was with a customer that was taking a lot of her time. The others never greeted or acknowledged us & we had to wait for the one girl to finish with her very needy person in order to check in for our reservation. By then there was a line of people behind us.

Our server was great but the order took 45 minutes to arrive so our overall service was subpar. The fried potatoes were undercooked and the temperature of the food was no longer hot when it arrived.

It was a very good experience for the family. They did mess up my burger a little bit, but it was still good. I would not say it was worth $18. But all the service was really good and I would still go back!

I and my family are In town dropping off one of kids at college. We have been camping our way across the country. Kona Grill offered some much needed variety from our standard gourmet camping meal plans. Having been a GM in large restaurants and now in the design field, I can say that I enjoyed the design and decor. The food was tasty. From the pot stickers and calamari (both appetizers I find most places overcook, get it right and you've got something good going on) to the surf and turf (outstanding), my family enjoyed all of it. That is saying a bunch.

It is a rare day that I offer this kind of review. From start to finish our servicer was spot on with her recommendations, drink service, food service and follow-up.

Outstanding experience, thank you Kona Grill!

The food and service were both excellent. Prices high for sushi rolls, competitive for other table fare at similar establishments. The restaurant is a good blend of upscale and casual feel, great menu selections, and our server was excellent. The Picasso roll was superb, and my wife's surf and turf was as good as any she has ever had. We will definitely be back.
