Staff was very nice and flexible w/ allowing us to sit 'outside' and have a drink before going to our table. (Thursday night, and they were not busy.)
Only critique would be for the waitress, removal of dinner plates before everyone at the table is finished is poor, basic etiquette.
Food very good. 9 people had a variety of dinner items, and all were good.

Family in town so took them to of our favorite places, Kona Grill at Chandler Mall. Unfortunately, self-parking on the weekend is a joke so used valet. Usually a short wait, but sat for about 10 minutes before car taken.
Once inside, reservation quickly found and we were seated. California roll, Macadamia Nut Chicken, Sea Bass, Salmon, Kona Chopped and all sides on point. Our server, who we've had before, was attentive without being overbearing. We'll be back again.

Kona, as usual is consistently good. I almost always get rolls or sashimi, however the menus is diverse enough that there is something for everyone.
This time we were celebrating a birthday; I’ve never had their deserts, and the butter cake is really good.
The only negative, which is out of the control of Kona is parking so get their early as it can be a pain.

We thoroughly enjoyed the miso encrusted sea bass. It was well prepared and melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back for more. The service was fast and friendly. Drinks were well done and exactly the way we like them.

I had specified that we were observing a birthday on the reservation, that was lost in the shuffle when we decided to sit out on the patio. The jambalaya was excellent, and my companion's salad was good only after we asked for the dressing that the kitchen had neglected. The pretzel and fondue appetizer was good but needed more smoke in the smoked gouda.

A little uneven, but overall an acceptable meal.

Never again. Just don't get any benefit from this place anymore. I had two different sushi rolls, both were not rolled tight, and fell apart when I picked them up. My wife had the macadamia chicken, and was dry and not much flavor. Waitress was great, but the food was not, and it just seems louder and louder each time you go.

I have had better experiences at the Kona Grill in the past. However, for this trip.. the Sushi was decent but the server was not particularly helpful (we had to send back to get our drinks refilled) and food was slow to appear, despite a fairly sparse attendance in the restaurant. I had the Sea Bass which was better with some soy sauce added but frankly not worth the price (Sea Bass is always a bit pricey). I will give a thumbs up to the atmosphere and the avocado egg rolls.

We have enjoyed going to Kona regularly over the past few years. The recent two or three times we have gone, we've noticed a decline in the quality and presentation of the food. The restaurant appeared dirty and not well kept as well. We will be going somewhere else now

Took another couple to dinner to show appreciation for watching our home while we were away.
Menu had lots of options and each diner was happy.
Food was great, but the service wasn't.
The server did not come back to refill our tea or water glasses except just when the meal was served.
There were no salt or pepper shakers on the table and when asked, the server brough a pepper mill, but did not leave it.
One of our guests later wanted to add pepper to her meal, but we could not find the server.
Probably just a bad night for the server - it's a favorite spot for us so we'll go back.

I really love Kona grill. Out of all their locations this one is my favorite! You simply cannot beat the happy hour deals! My go to is the tuna wonton crisps with a frozen margarita, the servers at the bar are also super friendly! I've been there about 20+ times, and now with the intense Arizona heat I valet the car right out front, it's awesome!

Kona is consistently good, and we are glad to have it in our neighborhood. We appreciate that we can order a wide range of food to meet any dietary preference, but still maintain a focus on good sushi. The outdoor patio is still one of the best around, and the happy hour menu is a great value. The service is excellent
