Sea bass was excellent & jambalaya was also very good. Great place for a casual dinner with great food.

This visit was poor compared to other times we’ve visited. Everyone’s food arrived at different times, we had to ask numerous times for refills, and any other request took at almost 10 minutes. Disappointing from the norm and even more so because we were celebrating a family birthday.

Well, we had a party of 4. Reserved during happy hour; however, to get happy hour prices we were informed we needed to sit in the bar area, which was full (and really noisy)! Could not order from the Happy Hour menu, which seemed really strange!?? Also one of us had a birthday, but no dessert or even ice cream, and we used the full-price menu. (It was noted on the reservation request.) We all left with some rather strange feelings about their “policies.” Food was good and waitperson was on top of things and very pleasant.

Looked at website said happy hour was till 7. We got there at 6:30 and they told us ‘happy hour’ was not in dining room but in the bar/outside and that if we wanted ‘happy hour’ we had to sit there. Food was just o.k. Nothing special. Probably won’t go back if that says anything.

We went early and sat on the restaurant side, since the bar side was already noisy. Not a good place for people with hearing issues. Sushi was good. If I go back, it will be early and on the restaurant side.

Happy hour prices were great, food was okay. Calamari appetizer was chewy and far from fresh. Happy hour sushi rolls were good for the price. Fish tacos were the best. Will return but only for happy hour deals.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, love the food, love the atmosphere, love the service. I just wish they would offer the happy hour specials in the main seating area too for those of us that aren't interested in the bar seating.

We enjoyed our experience at Kona Grill. The service was fantastic. It was very busy so it was a little longer wait for our food, but overall, our party enjoyed our time and will definitely come back.

Have had difficulty last 3 times I have been there due to the calamari tentacles. They used to be small ones and very edible but now are bigger and gross. A shame.

The food was presented well, the food was not very good. Very plain and no heart in it. Way too pricey for what you get. I felt guilty spending money on such little amount that was not good. We are from Big island, Waimea and this was a disappointment. It should have been more of a special night for my wife’s birthday. I thought it would be a nice reminder of our home back in Hawaii.

So our waiter Terrance was amazing and the best. He recommended kona chicken and I asked which one is better kona chicken or Korean ribs he said if I'm hungry kona if I want lite ribs. So I went with chicken and man was he right, it was big and it was so yummy. I loved it and even the wife was picking at mine.

This was our second time coming to Kona Grill. The first time it was AMAZING. My husband chose this place for his birthday lunch and it wasn't anywhere near the first time. The food took soooo long to arrive. Everything was either dry or cold. Also, they had no mashed potatoes at all. Not a big deal, but indicative of the whole meal. How do you not have your main side dish available at 12:00 in the afternoon? Very odd! The waitress told us there was lots of issues in the kitchen so she was giving us a discount. Funny thing is we never complained so from the get go they knew that everything wouldn't be up to par. It was a poor poor experience and not sure if I'd return. We raved about this to our friends who joined us and we were all disappointed to say the least.

I went there with two friends I haven’t seen in a long time and was looking forward to catching up. The service was slow. They said we couldn’t have happy hour prices and that was reserved for the bar area. We’re three adults and They sat us next to a family with kids.

The staff are great. They always have great recommendations when we ask what their favorites are. The sushi is really good and the potstickers are some of the best we’ve ever eaten and we have tried A LOT of potstickers😁

I love everything about this restaurant. The sushi is outstanding, calamari is delicious and the service is always great. The only thing we would like is for them to bring back the lobster Mac n cheese!

Always a great meal at Kona Grill! It tends to get noisy inside, but there were no outside tables available at 6pm so we dealt with it. Very pleasant & efficient server.

Due to traffic we were about 15 minutes late and I apologized immediately. There were three hostesses that barely acknowledged us, very weird. When we were seated it took some time for us to order beverages. The restrooms were a disaster. Very unkept but it was a busy night. They need to send one of their three hostesses in there at least once an hour to keep it tidy. Food was good.

The server was just going through the motions, but she did keep our water glasses filled. The food was inconsistent- my aunt and I both ordered the chicken satay with the slaw,but mine was significantly spicier. I asked instead for the potstickers and when they came they were all burned on the bottom but I was so hungry and everyone else was almost done eating that I just ate them anyway. The nice thing was that they did take my satay off the bill.
