We had overall good experience, couple of things - it was pretty noisy even in the patio area with open windows - the music was quite loud (not sure why the music has to be loud at any restaurant for that matter??), it was hard to enjoy the conversation and we had to wait for the waitress for a bit to order our main entries. My NY strip steak was well done and I ordered medium rare. Macadamia chicken was awesome, really delicious sauce, and deep fried calamari were really the best I've ever had. Aioli sauce was also delicious. It was very nice to get a complementary mini cake for the desert, we celebrated my birthday.

Kona Grill is my current favorite. I introduced a friend to it and she now plans to go back on the regular. REALLY good food - I've had their sushi, salads and most recently, their pad thai. All scrumptious. And my friend and I concurred - best Tomato Basil Bisque EVER! The service is always cordial and the pace perfect. They have quasi-outdoor eating for those easing back into restaurant dining or in the mood for al fresco.

I’ve never been to this restaurant before. It would’ve been helpful had they told us right away to check the menus online, as there were no paper menus due to Covid. Because it was a warm evening, large windows/doors were open, and a lot of mosquitoes were getting to us during our dinner. Quite noisy despite not being terribly crowded. Food was decent, but oversalted.

Thank you for reviewing your visit with us and for your honest feedback dbok. If willing, please let us know what was oversalted, so we may follow up with the kitchen to be sure they are executing to recipe. We hope you'll consider returning again and choose our indoor dining room for a more comfortable experience.

We went for Sunday brunch for the first time. The mimosas were great, the fritter starter was out of this world, and I absolutely loved my spicy lobster avocado toast. My husband ordered the lobster eggs benedict, but it did not come out with the lobster. The server never came back to check on us after getting our meals, so we never ended up getting the lobster with it, but they took it off of the bill. It was not busy at all and we were able to sit outside in the covered patio area with the windows open. Overall I highly recommend Kona Grill. We love it here. The service was not the best we've had on our visits, but it won't keep us from coming back again.

DJ was playing music too loud for an establishment such as this. Between the TV’s (sat outside) the Music, the Fans were blowing on us. It was not a pleasant quiet dining experience as I remembered it being before. The food was extremely salty. Broccoli was hardly cooked.
My entree was $33 definitely not worth it.
