I really liked the place; went there for a date. Service was attentive, informed, and helpful. The food was good. My only quip was that the spice sushi, wasn't ver spicy, but that could just have been my taste.

I took my mother here to celebrate her birthday. We had been here a few times in the past and have positive memories of it but it is a bit of a drive for us since we live in Fort Collins. We made reservations but opted for the lounge when we go there because of the really good happy hour deals. We got a few amazing (sushi-type) rolls as well as a sangria and salad. It was all incredible! It was so light and satisfying. It was well worth the drive. In fact, we are already planning our trip back. The wait staff was wonderful as well. Thanks for the amazing experience.

The good stuff, the waitress was wonderful. We were a table of 8 adults and 2 children. So she had eight different personalities and 2 babies to contend with. The food was wonderful. I didn't hear one complaint. The only thing I would say was our only small complaint was our apps came right out, we ordered the children their lunch before we ordered our food and it came right out. But, after we ordered our food, it took forever for our plates to be served. However, the food was hot and good, so I feel bad for even complaining about it. It's just when it's noticeable, the restaurant wasn't real busy, and everyone else is getting served quickly, you've got to wonder?

Consistently Awesome meals. Had the flank steak and loved it. I feel like you can't go wrong ordering anything on the menu (but I don't come here for sushi). Friend had the lemon pasta and loved it and my mother had the Asian cabbage salad. The carrot cake is bigger than your head and the best I've ever had- every time.

Fantastic. Super attentive service and superb food. Everything was fresh, delicious, and generous in portions. We had dishes ranging from the flank steak to jambalaya to salmon, and it was all perfect. Ditto for desert - the carrot cake is large enough for four though.
Will of course be back!

Great food and our server was attentive and personable, too. They have a wonderful selection of sushi, sashimi and other, non-Japanese items. While the server didn't share specific recommendations or technical information about the dishes with us, his enthusiasm for the food more than made up for it.

One gripe is that the hostess who "greeted" us seemed disaffected and distant - she barely registered our presence when we walked in and wasn't helpful letting us know about where to sit or how it was "going to work (i.e., that our server would be right with us, etc.)." They also didn't say goodbye or thank us for coming in as we left and instead talked with one another.

Food was not of high quality, and service was slow. Wine came after we were done eating. Overall, this place is not worth the money.

I come here often. Chris is always a great server. This particular visit the service was off. The young male host sat 2 walk ins after we checked in for our reservation. They said he was new. Our sushi took forever. The sushi chefs were new also. The only reason I’m commenting is because they never make excuses like that. Service is usually top notch.

We had a family dinner on a Saturday night, with a reservation, and were happy to get a booth far enough away from the bar scene that we could talk. Best kids' menu in Denver and reasonable, $7 for kid size entree and 2 healthy sides. We all liked our mostly Asian choices, altho the pot stickers weren't great. Calamari was excellent, and the fried rice that came with my salmon entree was very good. other entree's were the sushi sampler, a steak with mashed potatoes and the miso bass. All plates cleaned up! We'll return.

Service was friendly and attentive but the food was just adequate. The shrimp tempura roll was very bland, fish entree was dry, ahi tuna sliders were ok but sweet potato fries were cold and overcooked. We did enjoy the enormous (truly enormous!) piece of carrot cake for dessert. It was large enough for 3 people to share and still have leftovers!

I went in on a Thursday night for happy hour. We were sat at a table when we came in. We were informed happy hour is only available at the bar so we moved to the bar, after waiting 42 minutes we left without being offered a drink or appetizers. The place was not busy. Never again.

The food was not good. We ordered four sushi rolls and calamari, but didn't even finish half of it. The fish didn't taste fresh and the calamari had no flavor. I remember the food being great the last time I was here about a year ago, but this experience fell REALLY short. Quite disappointing.

We eat at Kona fairly regularly and always have a good experience. We love their sweet chili glazed salmon, fried rice, and seasonal vegetables, as well as their flank steak and sea bass. We can never pass up their delicious pot stickers either. The wait staff is friendly and on top of things. It's a fun and delicious place to go.

I was disappointed in Kona. The table we sat at was so wobbly and broken and my dad politely mentioned it to the waiter several times and he just made jokes about it. The sushi was very mediocre. The appetizer we wanted came with 3 pieces and I asked if we could have it with 4 to accommodate our party of 4, also mentioning we were happy to pay extra and the waiter said the chef would not do that. Overall it was just a little frustrating and not great.
