This was my first visit to Kona Grill. I ordered the Cuban sandwich with sweet potato fries. I really liked the sauce included with my sandwich (not sure of the name but it had black sesame seeds in it). I definitely would recommend eating here and plan to visit again soon.

Excellent service and food but the brownie is not brownie, is chocolate cake which is a big difference. Anyway I would gladly return to this place.

I wasnt impressed with Kona grill. When I reserved I thought it would be a fine dining experience but it was more of a mall like fast food place. Sushi was way too salty. Flatbread was good. I do not recommend

1 star. Our waiter was not up to part and the food was not that good yet expensive

Our waitress was very patient and well informed of the menu/specials for the night. The wine was flavorful and so was my sea bass. Parking at Galleria Mall is always an adventure but the food and service made it all better.

Food was excellent but the service was slow. Friendly but slow. There was a loud clanking noise near our table… Kind of like an air conditioning noise or something. But the food was so good it made up for this. I will return.

My chicken sandwich was good but the chicken in my husband's cobb salad wasn't good.

I love the food and drinks here! I visit this location frequently because I love the outdoor patio set up!

Sushi is always great and the Kahuna hamburger is wonderful. The fudge brownie is the Best.

Salads were very tasty, turkey burger was fine. Calamari was cold - would have been better if hot. Conveniently located with parking nearby (Galleria parking escalator/elevator is just around the corner).

First time there. Had heard it was very good so was disappointed because while it was not bad, it was nothing great. Restaurant was not very busy but service was spotty and not very attentive. The Pad Thai was just o.k., have had much better. The sea bas was good and done very nicely but the rest of the dish, the asparagus and fried rice left a lot to be desired. Because it was not very busy, the manager gave us tomato basil soup on the house. Again, it was o.k. But not great, a bit too creamy. All in all, it wasn't bad but certainly nothing to rave about or recommend..

I spent the evening with my two good friends while we ate sushi rolls (the voodoo is extra spicy but goes great when cut with the fresh ginger) and I had the jambalaya! The crawfish addition was surprising and delicious with them and the server checked on us often without imposing. I'll probably go again!

This experience was very poor... usually I enjoy the Kona Grill. We waited 45 minutes before we received our food and had to ask for water refills in that time. We also let them know we were celebrating a birthday, but it went unnoticed except for the hostess, who said happy birthday on our way in. The manager on duty came to apologize after we complained that we had been waiting 45 minutes and still had no food, but there was no other attempt to accommodate the long wait.

I have been to Kona Grill before and I am always happy with the food. I think the sushi rolls are fresh and flavorful! However, the service I always find slow. I always order sushi and the sushi takes longer to prepare here than any other sushi place I have been. Overall the flavor is great and if I have a long time to spare, I am happy to return and have the Picasso roll.

Kona Grill is definitely a beautiful surprise. My girlfriend loves Kona Grill, so I made the reservation :) I had no idea that Westheimer Road had lights wrapped beautifully around the trees that glisten at night; the view was exceptional from the patio. Our server, Darrell, welcomed us with a smile, made us laugh throughout the evening, which made the night even better. We ordered margaritas and sake bombs, pepperoni flatbread, chicken satay, the bama roll (amazing) and a caesar salad. This was the perfect spot for late night Happy Hour and tapas in a prime location in the Galleria. I would highly recommend Kona Grill for date night - make sure you sit on the patio if you can :) the view is lovely.
