Fresh, wild caught fish is flown in daily to craft award-winning sushi, while contemporary American entrees are prepared from scratch in-house. Happy hour on the beautiful, shaded patio is a must. And don’t leave until you’ve tried one of the handcrafted cocktails, ice cold draft beer, or a glass of wine selected from the extensive drink menu. The restaurant’s diverse menu and contemporary ambience provide the perfect venue for special occasions like bridal showers, baby showers, birthday celebrations, business meetings, date night, or just any occasion really.

Not as impressed as we used to be. But think it’s more of just having the same selection for awhile. Quality is just not as high as before but really overall still a good restaurant overall.

This was our first visit. We tried drinks, appetizer, dinner and dessert to get a variety of flavors. I was given a gift card which prompted drive from far East side of Indianapolis. It was worth the drive and the management could not have been better. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Our waitress was just fine. Very on top with the drink refills and the food was delicious. Our only beef was having to ask for salt and pepper. And even at that she only left the salt with us and took the pepper grinder away after she peppered our food. Irritating.

We had an 8pm reservation fro Valentine's Day and we were seated promptly at 8pm. The sushi was fabulous as well as the Edimame. The Snapper which was a special item should be considered as an everyday item! I will be back there again but would definitely order the snapper again!

Valentines Day - Party of 6. We had an enjoyable dinner.
Our Server Katelyn was most attentive , food was really good.
We visit the Kona Grill often, and will do so again. We have not found fault with the food yet
Thanks for a great evening

Awesome food and service. We had a tuna roll and a yellow tail roll as appetizers and they were excellent. I had the seared tuna and my colleague had the sea bass as entres’. Both were delicious.

We always have good food at Kona Grill, and appreciate the fact that there are some changes on the menu every now and then. It's a little loud, but most restaurants are these days. Servers are usually pretty good, too.

Kona never fails to impress, and they have schockingly reasonable pricing on cocktails. It is definitely a regular option for my wife and me.

Made reservations on Open Table during the day and were seated right away, despite a large, walk-in crowd. Service was timely, sushi was delicious and very well crafted. With the restaurant being very busy and quite full, it tended to be a bit noisy. Overall, Kona is always a solid destination, especially for something more than just a casual dinner.

We made a reservation, but had to wait 25 minutes while a lot of other people got sat in front of us, so that was frustrating. The food was delicious and came out quickly, but our server was nice but not very attentive.

Way too loud and impossible to have a conversation. Extremely bright light directly over our table. Disappointing experience for our first visit.

We has reservation at Kona for 6:45...by 7:00 our table still wasn't ready but we mentioned it to a manager walking by and he promptly seated us and gave us a few edamame appetizers for the trouble which was a nice gesture. We ordered the "off the menu" sushi rolls-dynamite, playboy, and I think another-and they were very good. The earl grey old fashioned was one of our favorite drinks on the menu! Our waitress was fun and the place was very busy and "happening!" I'd definitely return!

Excellent presentation on each dish we ordered from the single sushi roll on a banana leaf to our main entree. Super impressed how they cater to kids. My son was given a etch-a-sketch to play with and his meal was neatly presented in a bento box with an orange carved into the shape of a panda and a well-balanced meal with both fruits and veggies. Can’t wait to return. Excellent waiter and service.

The overall rating would have been higher except the sushi and the main course was brought out at the same time. The kitchen was behind on sushi orders so they should have held the main course until we had a chance to eat the sushi.

Waitress dropped full wine glass on table. Broke everywhere. All four received new drinks for fear of glass in drinks. Husband’s sweater wet from dpilled wine. Staff never cleaned us broken glass on carpet beneath us. Manager never came over and fid not comp anything. My dinner special no longer available so another fish was substituted. I did not care for substitution. Another entree was brought out after others had finished their entrees. Again no comps for staff blunder. Kona one of our favorite places but if service and lack of attention from manager is going to be the norm then we will have to find another. I was embarrassed since we had out of town guests.
