Our waiter, Brandon, deserves an extra shout out. We were a party of 8 on Halloween night. When we arrived, the restaurant was full. Throughout the evening, Brandon was engaging, knowledgeable and helpful with the menu for those of us who’d never dined at Kona Grill, prompt with our meals, and diligent but not pushy when checking on us. Our whole party was impressed with the food, from the satay and calamari appetizers to the varieties of sushi rolls and different dinner entrees. The oriental salad with macadamia nut crusted chicken was superb along with the pike bowls. Again, a big thanks to Branson. He made our night top notch!

Apparently there must have been inadequate help in the kitchen because it took one hour for me to receive my entree and my husband his soup. The waiter was very apologetic and we could see she was trying, but things came out late. And, it wasn't even crowded for a Saturday night. We have eaten at Kona Grill many times before and this had never happened.

Generally, everything is excellent but this time, and I really regret having to write this, the server was not up to your usual level of service. She was confused, the food and drink orders were messed up and it took too long to rectify the different issues.

My server was amazing. Didn't get his name, but very charismatic. I sat out on the patio and the temperature was great. You cool actually feel the air conditioning out in the patio which meant I didn't say my clothes out (being in Texas and what not). I got the sunshine and fiery shrimp roll. Delicious! I will be back.

We wanted to take my mom somewhere nice for her visit to Dallas and she absolutely loved this place. The menu has such variety so everyone was able to get something they liked. Our server, Lonnie, was so great and helpful with our selections. We will definitely be coming back here more regularly!

I ordered the ribs and asked the waitress if the sauce was spicy. She said it was not. She must of had ribs somewhere else because they were very spicy. The ribs were dry and tasteless. My husband had pad Thai which had a strange flavor. The California rolls were good. The manager came over but never asked if I would like something else. There are so many great rib places in Dallas why would we ever go back to Kona Grille

Was not a good night for Kona. Our server was not playing with a full deck. Then there was a large table that really backed the kitchen up.

Food was amazing. Environment was amazing. Our server was not spectacular. She left us for long periods of time without checking in. When we asked for our check, she asked if it was separate or together. We indicated we needed two checks, she brought four... we sat without refills and had to ask the food runner to find our waitress.

I have worked in the restaurant industry for many years so I understand the variables all too well. Unfortunately, management did not do a very good job of minimizing those negative variables during our last visit. Reservations for party of six, we were seated promptly which was the best part of the evening. It was very obvious from that moment on we were assigned to a "new" employee. Yes, I know they all have to start somewhere and get experience but a Friday evening--prime dinner time--maybe not the best situation for your guests or your new guy to learn the ropes. He did not have any knowledge of the wine/drink menu, had to keep going to ask someone questions, nor did he understand the food options. Our drinks were served one at a time over about a 30 minute period--???? Our food service was even more sporadic---the last food order taken was about 15 minutes later than the rest of the party as she was distracted with business and didn't order when the rest of us did and yet, her order came right out. Two of us were served within 20 minutes of ordering and the other 2 had to place their orders again and wait again for their food. No follow up as to if we needed anything else or if all was ok. One person was drinking decaf coffee and had to ask repeated for refills (3x refills were just luke warm, server told her that's all they had and maybe when they made a new pot of coffee it would be hot). Server did return to remove dishes and took plates that guests were still eating from and then left the very obvious plates we had pushed to center of table since we were through sharing those. Would have been nice if we could have had a competent server to help us enjoy our once a year get together. This was a expensive "training" session ---unfortunate for worker and especially for us. Might have been less offensive if we had seen any sign of other staff helping him out, making sure he was taking care of customers. We will not be back---ever!

This was our return visit after first visit when Kona Grill first opened. First visit did not go well but decided to give it another chance after so much time had passed. Things have gotten much better since then. The menu seems to be improved with lots of selections including Sushi selections, good choice of apps, sandwiches and dinner entries. The Avocado roles were very tasty to start the meal. We both had sandwiches this time and were pleased with how tasty they were.

Service had gotten much better, our waiter was around enough to provide anything during the meal.

We will put Kona Grill back on our list of regular places to visit when we dine at North Park mall in the future.

Northpark is one of the most beautiful shopping centers in America. Kona Grill is an added gem and is an exciting place for great food and service. The patio is the best place or relaxing or entertaining friends.

Had an excellent birthday dinner celebration with friends on the patio of Kona Grill Northpark.
Caught the great Happy Hour drinks and appetizers and all our dinners were delicious.
Our waitress was fun and responsive. She brought out wonderful Butter cake for a birthday treat.
Great job, Kona Grill!

Mona Grill never fails deliver when it comes to ambiance, food and service. Sunday the Spring menu was delicious; the chicken and shrimp lettuce wraps different from any other restaurant and the margarita flatbread filled with tomato, but the best was the Kona chopped salad. Unlike many salads. there was more chicken, bacon, avocado, etc. than salad greens. It was 'ummm ummm good' to the last bite. Then our server was the best, never overbearingly attentive but there when we needed him, AND he brought us cookies! The only negative was the temperature in the room. They failed to compensate for the unusually cool temperatures and we shivered thru our meal.

The sushi rolls and potstickers were very good, although my son ordered the Pad Thai Noodles with shrimp and both he and my other son who tasted it both disliked it very much. It did not get eaten. I ordered the Sweet-Chili Glazed Salmon and really liked the salmon, although did not like the rice at all and I am not a brussels sprouts person so cannot attest to those fairly. I would return for the sushi rolls and potstickers.

We reserved a high top table. But when we got there, they said those were only in the bar, and can’t be reserved. So why is it an option on Open Table?

So we waited 10 minutes for a booth. They sat us, and then told us that since we had a reservation, they wouldn’t honor the happy hour prices (which are now available throughout the restaurant, and not just the bar), something they could have said BEFORE we waited.

Well, they ultimately honored both the reservation and happy hour prices for us. But given the grief we got, it wasn’t a great experience.

The food was OK. I had a roll with fried sea bass, and I think the fish had been dead for a week...really bad taste. Their Cheeseburger Sliders are a meal in itself.

They seem to be trying to figure out their happy hour. One Sunday, it was only in the bar...but after we waited 10 minutes, they put us in the restaurant and gave us happy hour menus...and honored our open table reservation. The next week, it was only in the bar, and at the sushi bar. The next week, it was throughout the restaurant. This week, it was throughout the bar, but only without a reservation.

Five seniors came out for an early dinner. Unfortunately it was during happy hour and it is very loud at the Kona Grill during happy hour. It was very difficult to have a conversation at our table. Next time we’ll come earlier for lunch. We did enjoy the discount on the drinks and appetizers!
