What a fun way then to welcome new employees with a team luncheon!! The waiter was awesome and was accommodating to our needs. The atmosphere was great. The only down side it’s the air was blowing extremely hard on the table we sat at and then it turned to heat....wasn’t sure what was going on with the HVAC unit that day....other than that it was awesome!!

We asked for outdoor seating, but there really is none. There is an enclosed patio but the windows were all closed, so basically we were inside. The food was tremendous and the service was prompt, friendly and professional. I highly recommend the Checkerboard Sushi, it was fresh and delicious. The spicy tuna was also very good, and the calamari appetizer was cooked just right, not greasy and came with a spicy yet flavorful dipping sauce.

I've been to Kona Grill previously, and I had a better experience at that time. This time my shrimp were rubbery and cold, and my salad was loaded with lettuce with brown edges and onion butts. 16$ dollars for a salad is high anywhere, but I was willing to pay that for a good salad. Sadly this was not a good salad.

Good food. Sea bass was excellent. I not much a fan of sushi and rolls though sea foods were good. Cuban sandwich was so so. BBQ chicken Flat bread was too salty but mot of American food is a bit salty to me. Kids meal is not that tasty. Sweet potato fry was very good. Staffs were very friendly but we were hungry for twenty minutes waiting the foods even there are lots of empty tables. Except that otherewise very good.

Very loud, waiter was young and inexperienced.
Enjoyed the fish but not worth the money.

We had a great experience at Kona! The food was great, the manager was excellent. She came by and checked on us, called me when I forgot something...just top notch. The server was a little slow and didn’t know the specials-but that didn’t effect how great our meal was!

Meeting friends for dinner - fabulous service! Waitress was smart enough to know a group of girls wanted to talk a lot, so she gave us a great deal of space. Food was delicious and fresh. Would definitely recommend again to anyone!

The Gouda Fondue appetizer was great. My Macadamia nut crusted chicken was amazing. The special filet mignon for Valentines Day was pricey and not nearly as good as the last time we had it. For the price we wished it had been better.

New furniture on the patio makes it nicer to be out there. Service was bad in that easy order issues were wrong and the food quality for steaks has gone down but sushi is as good as ever.

This used to be my favorite restaurant in Richmond Metro for sushi. And all the seafood dishes were excellent. But the past 2 times I have dined here have been a disaster. On this visit the food and service were excellent, until a large bug crawled across the table. Seriously? I alerted the waiter, who promptly moved us to another booth but the damage was done. How can you have a meal with that image in your mind. The manager asked if we were enjoying our meal and I told him about the bug. His response was to tell me that they had just had the pest control people in the day before and the bugs were on the move. Really? That's your answer? No apology, no offer to comp the meal. I am done with this place.

The food was okay until I got home and was incredibly Ill. We called the restaurant and told them what we ordered but they didn't really seem to take it seriously. I would not visit this place again or recommend it. However, this is because it made me so sick.

We went to Kona Grill to celebrate my wife’s Birthday. There were 4 of us there including my 80 year old mother-in-law. Lauren was our server and she went out of her way to allow us to have a very special celebration. Lauren was very patient with our questions and all her answers and recommendations were excellent choices. The pace in which the food was brought out was perfect for the evening. I highly recommend Kona Grill for special occasions. Be sure to ask for Lauren .

We made this reservation at the last minute. We took it because they had seating before 10:30 that night. Now I know why we could get a last minute seating on New Year’s Eve.

It took way too long for our food to come out and our server seemed to forget about us. It was not at all what we had hoped for and it’s a shame that this was our New Year’s Eve dining experience.

After moving to VA from TX, I was disappointed to discover that the Turkey Burger was taken off the menu... I hope you bring it back (I opted for miso soup and avocado egg roll for appetizers along with the stir fried chicken/broccoli for the entre mea)! Overall, the experience was not bad; but I experienced an upset stomach later that evening through the next morning...

Have to give them big kudos, we booked for eight, we had to change when we arrived to 15 and they got us on the patio (more casual) where we wanted to be despite that not usually being bookable. We had people arriving at different times too over a two hour period and yet the server took it all in his stride. Happy hour deals are excellent, food is good, Service very good.
