Kona Grill - Cincinnati
Fri - Sat: 11a-12a
I had the lettuce wraps as an entree, and they were delicious. We also had the carrot cake, which was huge and so good. My only complaint is that the noise level is so crazy. We were practically screaming to hear each other.
Our first time there, very nice place, décor is lovely and the fish tank is so unique. There were two very large parties set up for a little later that evening and unfortunately even though the restaurant was practically empty all of the servers were pre-occupied talking about the upcoming large parties and weren't as attentive -- we waited awhile to order, our drink glasses were empty -- but otherwise everything was great. We had the potstickers and they were yummy, my husband had the Cuban sandwich and it was huge! I had the crispy Korean sandwich. Very good but messy, I had to use a fork and knife. We will definitely go back!
Server Andrea was awesome!!! The food and ambiance was very good.
Kona did not even have our reservation listed. Luckily there was a table open in the bar area.
A friend and I met for lunch. We quickly discovered it was Wine Down Wednesday which even made the experience that much better. Your favorite wine, some
bites for lunch and a place to have a great conversation. Our waitress/ server was awesome. It made for a great lunch.
Our waitress was amazing. She was the best we had in a long time. Food was great. I did ask for special occasion, and was seated across from the kitchen. Our waitress took us to where we wanted to be, which was really good of her. Besides the not so special seating in the beginning, all ended well. It was my 60th birthday we we’re celebrating.
Our server, Trevor, was excellent. He had 12 tables to serve from someone calling off that evening. I felt like me did a great job.
Overall very pleasent. Food was cooked to order. Steak, Tuna, etc were served hot and in a timely manner. Service was a bit lacking at first but when I mentioned something it was fine after. Was a bit disappointed the espresso machine was not working. Nice atmosphere. Wound definitely recommend
Overall the lunch was really good. Our only concern was the mold growing on the raspberry on top of our dessert. Everything else was delicious.
New menu options and the stir fry was quite good. The side salad was particularly fresh. Good service, great location.
Good atmosphere, service was okay, but the food has changed. Something is different than the past times we have been.
We wanted to share the Kona Grill with our friends as we love the food, ambience and the outdoor dining area. They hadn’t dined at Kona Grill before but thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience as well. We had an excellent server (Kendra) and we’ll return soon.
Kona is always a fun place to dine! Food and drink are always good! We will be back again soon!
My experience at Kona Grill has always been outstanding! Last Sat I met my friends for dinner to celebrate my early bday. I originally had reservation of 6, but the staff was very helpful in upgrading it to a table of 9. I was very thankful that they were able to work with me with less than 24hrs notice. The atmosphere is elegant and pretty and the staff are all very friendly and attentive. The menu has wide selection of entrees which is the reason why I chose this restaurant over others at the Liberty Township Center. It has Fusian, Asian, American, even a cuban sandwhich...so definitely has something for everyone's taste. I highly recommend dining at Kona Grill....excellent service and delicious foods! : )
Great location and decor, we had amazing service. I just wish the menu was a bit larger and offered a little more.
Server was wonderful, food was very good. I had the chicken and shrimp lettuce wraps and it is so good. It's an appetizer but I get it as a meal. My friend had the bourbon burger and fries and was very happy with it. We sat on the patio for the Wednesday night outdoor concert and had a lovely evening.
Had a reservation Saturday 0900pm did not get seated until 0945. The place was not packed super slow moving workers. When looking around they were all chatting with each other. Took 45 mins to get drinks on the table and another hour for food. Only upside was the food was decent. But horrible service at the bar and table. Will not be visiting again.
Food was pretty good. It took a long time to get our food.
Food and service was great
This is my 3rd visit and I was disappointed . Waitress paid little attention to us and the kitchen was slow to bring out our good. Noise level is high....won’t go again.
We were very excited to try Kona Grill as it came highly recommended from friends. It was very underwhelming, however. I had the Churrasco Steak with Chimichurri sauce. The sauce and the potatoes were the best part of the meal. The steak was tough and tasteless without the sauce. I only finished half which is unusual for me. The leftovers are still in the fridge and will likely be thrown out -- 3 additional males in the house and no one wants the steak?! The others in my party said their food was ok but not fantastic - especially for the price. The service was not great. She was very nice but not very efficient. It took us a long time to even put our order in. My biggest regret is not trying the sushi. It looked wonderful. I may go back to try just that, but otherwise I will go to P.F. Changs or something locally owned for better food.
Food and selections are all good - our servicer was less then bright and made quite a few missteps but all was corrected
Great food, quick service, out of there in 30 mins.!
Food was excellent and atmosphere was great. Sushi menu was very good - best in the area IMO. Limited selection for non-fish eaters. Service was good - food was a little slow coming out though.
So noisy on a Friday night. We had a special family dinner for the 7 of us and couldn't hear each other due to the sound level. The menu choices were great but I felt they were overpriced for the quality. I did love the Umami Flatbread and my granddaughter's bento box for kids. My special $9 drink was mostly ice. I was given the wrong wine and had to wait quite a while to receive it. Our server was pleasant. I would go back once more to sit up top with my husband and try the sushi.
I had the lettuce wraps . Pretty good
We were 15 minutes late due to a traffic accident. Had to sit in the bar area which was a little hot and sunny. Server was very helpful
They recently changed their menu, so they were still adjusting in the kitchen, but it's unfortunate they no longer offer complimentary birthday desserts.
We had a family dinner there with four people. Food and service was very good. We sat by the aquarium which added some additional entertainment.
We went to dine there this past Saturday and really enjoyed the experience. We all liked the meals we picked. My husband said the Sushi was amazing. I had the chicken and broccoli stir fry and really enjoyed it. Food came out timely and the service was excellent. I also appreciate the nutritional info they offer on their website and their willingness to make the food how you would like it. We will definitely be back !
This was our second visit to Kona Grill, and we absolutely loved it both times. This time we were celebrating my son’s birthday, with parents and his grandmother. The food is first class, and the service was also excellent. The only suggestion for improvement is the music level. It was fine for our family, but grandma was struggling to hear, and felt overwhelmed by it. She loved her salmon dinner, but was unhappy with inability to participate in conversation. Our server did ask on out behalf to turn it down, and that did help. As a whole, we love the food and dining experience here. Will definitely be back!
Food was ok, service was less than desirable. Will probably still to coming for drinks, not dining
The service was awesome. This was the second time I have dined here. I hoped my first experience was a fluke. The food was subpar. The sushi was cold and dry. The service made the experience enjoyable but until the quality of the food improves I will not return.
I've dined here before and had decent experiences. Tonight, it smelled like a sewer. My chicken was over salted. The waitress offered to box my leftovers (I barely touched it) and my husband's. When we got home mine was not in the bag. It will be a long time before I return.
Food and service always very good. Love eating on the patio covered but you feel like your outdoors.
Aunt’s going away
Nice evening and we were able o sit on the patio. wonderful food - many things to pick between and since we're family and tried each other's dishes I know everyone's was fantastic! Would definitely recommend.
The speed of serving is pretty slow.
This restaurant has great ambiance. It is a bit pricey but they tout the sushi which is very reasonable. I liked the experience. Would highly recommend.
