Although the food is good, especially the sushi/sushi rolls/sashimi, and the desserts portions are gigantic (plan to share one), I would not go back, as the noise level was deafening, making it almost impossible to carry on a conversation. We were there for a birthday dinner (join their email club to get $15 toward a birthday meal and other benefits) with a 7:45 PM reservation on a Saturday night, it took at least 15 minutes to be seated, and we were almost blown back out the front door by the ridiculous noise level in the bar area where you have to wait. Since there is no longer any separation (there used to be a partial partition) between the waiting area, the bar, and the dining area, you simply can't get away from the incessant noise. The crowd was mostly 20-40-year olds throughout, but there were lots of teenagers, including a long table of about 15 teens unsupervised in the dining area, who seemed to find it impossible to stay in their own seats, and were milling all around the table, making lots of noise. Since there didn't seem to be an accompanying adult, and out of respect for other dinner patrons, it would have been good if the restaurant manager had requested they sit down and quiet down.

Wonderful happy hour for a Saturday afternoon. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone wanting super high quality food for a very affordable price. Two of us ate for $38, two rolls of sushi, cheeseburger sliders (with fries) and two drinks. AMAZING!

Upon arrival we were promptly seated for our reservation of 5. The waiter was attentive, but did not hover around the table. Drink glasses were never empty for long. Our waiter was also very good at recommending great dishes. The food was excellent, especially the macadamia nut chicken. Overall, a wonderful experience, we will return.

I am repeat customer and usually enjoy the food but this time the sushi was awful. The waiter also gave incorrect information on the special and we didn't get what we were told it was the vegetable of the day.

Service was a little slow initially, but well worth the wait! The sushi was incredible, I rwcommend the coconut shrimp rolls. We asked the manager what the veggie strings were that the Las Vegas rolls were on, he told us and then brought it out to show us without us asking to see it. That little extra attention was very nice. Great food, dress can be anywhere from casual to dressy.

This place had a great fusion of food types. We sampled a lot of it...Cuban sliders, fondue, flatbread, and sushi roll. All was sooo good.

Was very excited to take my family to Kona Grill. I was terribly embarrassed and disappointed in our service and time spent at this venue. The food that night was all just OK. The service was terrible. From order taking to drink refills, it was a complete mess. At one point they took my husband's tea glass and never came back. No ice in the drinks. Couldn't get sweetener. And waiting for the check so we could get out of there was an eternity. Don't get me started on boxes and the receipt. Spent $148.00 for four people. I probably won't be allowed to choose the next outing.

Food was excellent as usual. This was our second time there and this time the service was horrible. Had to find our own additional silverware, took awhile to fill drinks, run credit card. Server seemed new or not all that interested in being there.

Service is always good and food is consistent. The only negative would be the consistent fruit flies that bother you during your meal. It has been like that each time I go.
