I met a friend for there for lunch, the service and food was excellant. The Kona Grill creates a great atmosphere to enjoy good food and conversation with friends. I plan on returning in the near future to experience their dinner menu. I highly recommend dining at the Kona Grill.

The sushi was awesome!!! Favorite was the Picasso. We ordered several rolls and all were great. We didn’t care for the entree’s. Husband ordered the NY strip and asked for Medium and it was well done with no pink in it. I ordered the Seabass and let’s say Catch 35 still have the best one along with Pappadeux. It was bland but the fried rice and mixed vegetables made the whole mean. I would ordered those by itself to accompany the sushi. The atmosphere was very nice. We asked for a booth and they mentioned a leaking issue at some and when we set at one it was leaking on my husband head. We were moved quickly but they could have offered something for the inconvenience. I will def go back again as the sushi is worth it!!!

The experience was great. It was Valentine's Day evening so staff was very busy. Took a while to get my beer but I didn't complain. A manager brought it over to the table and said she'd noticed it had been sitting up at the bar for a while, so this one's on the house. I thought that was pretty cool.

Everything about our experience was good, except for our server. He was not very prompt, did several fly-bys but did not check-in, his timing to take our order was slow, and he did not have a lot of personality.

We had been to the Kona Grill a number of times, but not for a few years and decided to go their for our anniversary. Unfortunately our previous experiences did not live up to our visit this weekend. The restaurant has really slipped in terms of appearance, menu, and value. The interior had a very tired feel with a big stain on the carpet and just looked outdated. The menu was not inspiring and the food quality was good, but not spectacular and not reflective of the prices. Not likely to return again any time soon...plenty of other options in the area at this price point.

What a wonderful experience! The six of us get together occasionally and we all agreed .... your restaurant was inviting, the food was delicious, and Curtis was attentive without being intrusive. Thank you!

We had a party of 7 and Jay was our server. He was awesome! Food was great and we had an great time. The only drawback were those overhead pen lights in the bar and dining room. They are really annoying and much too bright. Very distracting.

Good casual place for a Friday night with friends, but the cocktails can get pricey and it tends to get louder in the larger open room.

Kona's food has never disappointed us. Sushi was great. The ample, open seating in the bar area is a great option if you find yourself out on a Saturday night without a reservation and don't want to eat at 9:00 pm.

Our server was very pleasant but did not seem to know how to handle multiple tables very well. We waited for drinks and the check. This one instance won't deter us from coming back. Perhaps she was new.

Great place for lunch or dinner. Easy access and plenty of parking in front if you have a disability. They started to fill up once we arrived. Reservations are a good idea unless you want to sit in their nice bar area. They have tables and high tops. The food was great but rather pricey. They have a wide menu of dishes for anyone's taste.

Food was excellent Was little disappointed with the ambiance. I expected a little nicer. Tables in center were like cafeteria tables. No candle. No tablecloth. I’d only come back if I could get a booth. Seems an easy fix to “upgrade” tables.

Went there for my wife's birthday . Noted that in my request for my table . Our server Curtis was the best . We had the smoked goida fondue. Which was a perfect app. Our entrees were outstanding . My wife had the garlic lemon penne that she love. I had the macudam crusted chick the was delicious. They comped the creme brulee . We will return for sure.

We go here all the time and know that Sunday is all day happy hour. We were given the option to sit anywhere and we opted to sit inside but when our server came he told us that no happy hour in this section- he eventually cleared it up and said it was ok to order from the happy hour menu but didn't give us the menu even after asking a couple of times for it. 2 of our orders came super late and overall given it was not a busy time I felt we were under serviced. We've been going here for the past 3-4 years regularly and this is my first bad experience with them.
