Kona Grill - Phoenix Ratings and Reviews
We had a reservation for 10. The service was incredibly slow and poor. It took almost an hour to get our food once ordered. The server did not check the table very often and so drinks were often empty. If a restaurant cannot handle groups this size, they should not accept the reservation.
We came to Kona Grill to celebrate 53rd birthday. We were disappointed. The food was good (not great) but rather expensive. The atmosphere was more like a bar (lots of TVs and noisy). The waiter was not very failure with the menu. For the price of the meals we expected a much better atmosphere.
The service was terrible. It took an hour just to get bread. I ordered chicken that tasted like rubber. It was a birthday celebration for my brother and they didn't even do anything. My husband ordered salad and sushi for his dinner and was still hungry and asked for another sushi ..,,never got it :(
Wouldn't recommend this place
The service and cocktails were as expected: Very Good. Our food was excellent. We arrived at 4 p.m. for a business dinner, and all was well until they turned up the music. It was Tuesday afternoon/evening and the location was not crowded, but the noise level quickly became like a Friday or Saturday night. We could barely hear each other speak. That forced our business discussion to end, and we left Kona just after 7:30 p.m. without achieving our goal. As mentioned, on Friday at the end of the business week I would expect that noise level, but not on a Tuesday.
A couple who we have known for three years gave us a $50 gift certificate to show their appreciation for a pair of event tickets we had given them when my wife felt too ill to attend. We waited for our anniversary to try the Kona Grill because it was a little too far from home for a "normal" night out.
Our waiter gave us very thorough descriptions of his favorite menu items. We ordered Tempora Shrimp to share, followed by Sea Bass for her and chicken for me. Of course, we shared tastes of each of these fabulous entrees. The bottle of Conundrom went well with both dishes. We finished with a huge slice of Carrot Cake. The servings were all too big for reasonable eaters, but we had left-overs of everything for lunch the next day.
Yes,we will take the long drive again.
We went in on a Saturday evening and they weren't very busy, there were a lot of empty tables. It took quite a while for our server to greet us. We ordered the Angry Edamame and it was way to spicy to eat so we ordered the plain edamame, it was good. We ordered 3 rolls and two pieces of salmon sushi. The rolls were completely tasteless and the seaweed wrap was so tough I couldn't even chew it. The salmon in the sushi was tasteless as well, my husband said the rice had more flavor than the fish. Again it took quite a while for our server to bring us our check. It was a disappointing experience for sure, we won't return.
They were super nice from the moment we walked in. Our waitress was pleasant and dealt with our lack of decision making. The food was great!!! We got potstickers and they were amazing just the sauce was a little bland.
We split 5 rolls and all of them were wonderful! My favorite was the Picasso. It was beautiful and tasty.
We got butter cake and passion fruit creme brûlée. Both were so great! Although I do wish the brûlée was a little more set.
Overall, good drinks and good food.
We just moved to Phoenix and went to Kona Grill for our 35th wedding anniversary dinner. I entered that on our open table reservation as the reservation type and in comments section. No recognition of any form even verbally. The KC Kona Grill always provided a free desert when it was our anniversary dinner. Other than that all was great!
It just wasn't my kind of place? It is a lot of fish and seafood and I am not into seafood or fish. It was very noisy. They had our name on the list but seated us in the bar area and not the dining area so it was loud. Our friends go there all the time because they love their hamburgers so I think it just us.
