I have yet to be disappointed when dining here. Although they were out of asparagus which caused me to change my dinner choice, I was able to try one of the sushi rolls. It was absolutely delicious. The staff is always pleasant and the food is always good.

Ever since they started offering Brunch, we find ourselves dining more compared to dining here for dinner. We enjoyed everything they offer on their brunch menu, specially all the different flavors of mimosas. If you enjoy brunch Kona Grill is a must try if ever in the area.

One of our dinners was sent back to the kitchen and the same exact dinner was returned to us with no difference. This was very noticeable because the previous weekend we had ordered the same salad and it was completely different and very good the first time.

We were seated in the dining room section of the restaurant and the music was so loud it was hard to talk over it.

I would still recommend Kona based on our experience the previous weekend but if we have another experience like last weekend we probably won't return or recommend.

Been here before and enjoyed it. Brought a potential client for beverages and appetizers.

Food was very good, but server (possibly inexperienced), despite a good attitude, was only marginally helpful. As a finale, she brought me someone else's check, for about three times the correct amount.

To be fair, we were there at an odd time (too late for lunch, too early for dinner), and this probably would be the time new servers are trained. As a result, I would still recommend Kona Grill.

The place played house music during dinner and it was so loud and a total distraction. It was so hard to have a conversation with my friends and sometimes it was hard to hear our server. The food was really good, but I probably will not return due to the atmosphere. If I am going to pay $32 for a meal I expect a finer dining restaurant, not a dance club.
