It was super empty, we were one of two or three parties in the restaurant, but somehow still got mediocre service. Some of our party arrived early to take advantage of happy hour, and brought a drink for me to the table since it was my birthday, which seemed to upset the server. The food was good, but nothing super special for the price.

The dining area was empty but it took a long time to get my food. Somewhat disappointing since the sushi was pretty good.

We have eaten here several times and have always been blown away. This time was nice but the food was not as good as we have had in the past. They also said we missed our reservation when in fact we arrived early and were sent away and asked to come back closer to our reservation time.

Kona grill not like it used to be . I was shocked for a Saturday night they were slow. The Hawaiian ribeye is what I went in for and was told they don’t carry anymore . This used to be a restaurant favorite .
I went online to view menu before I made reservations and the ribeye was on the online menu for Chandler location. But when I went in they didn’t carry anymore . I was very disappointed. Hubby wasn’t to impressed with his seafood dinner either. They have downsized menu due to budget cuts I heard. I will not be returning .

Lunch with family at one of our favorite locations! Even though the temperature was fairly warm (Arizona, after all), the outdoor patio was very comfortable. The food was delicious, as usual. Great place for group dining - the noise level is moderate, but that means a large group doesn't ruin for other diners. Love this place!!

We were there for a birthday. A neighboring table had a waitress that gave a desert to a birthday person but our waitress said Kona Grill does not offer anything for a person’s birthday. We did not complain since our waitress was very friendly.

It was our anniversary. The server was great! She was nice and friendly.

I wasn’t a big fan of the sushi platter. It didn’t look or taste fresh. Everything else was great!

Birthday... but even though I stated it on the reservation, no one acknowledged it. I had hoped my son would at least have gotten a free dessert for his birthday, but it wasn’t offered One, and I didn’t want to ask for one.

Sunday all-day Happy Hour menu. NOTE available in bar only. GREAT fresh food - variety is amazing - fish is fresh - awesome service - great drinks - at the food court side of Chandler Fashion Center - valet is right there if you need it. I love love Kona Grill - always can count on al the consistencies that we want as patrons: great service - great ambiance - great food and great vibe. I know it's a chain but it feels unique everytime!

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.
