    Overpriced menu, small portions, poor service on a busy Friday evening. The food was tasty but nothing to write home about and not enough to make the expensive cost worth it. Overall I was disappointed and won’t be returning.

    Waiter was amazing! Food was great. Steak needed a little salt and pepper, but sushi was great! Husbands plate was brought out 5 min before mine which was a little inconvenient. Waiter stated Manager would come speak with us but he never did. Thankfully we enjoyed our company and time regardless of time issues.

    Lunch date with my daughter. We sat outside which was nice. Table, floor and table kiosk for ordering/ paying were nasty and not wiped down. Wait staff was rude and blamed it on being short staffed. Place was very noisy inside with rap/hip hop music way too loud. My daughter ordered 2 orders of salmon sashimi with fried rice, and I ordered 2 standard rolls California and shrimp tempura. Bill was $92.

    My wife and I have been eating sushi dinner at Kona for years now and the food, service, and a ptice of $60 for a sushi dinner for two has been reasonable. However, recently we went for a sushi dinner and ended up paying almost double the price around $100 that we normally spent for the same food. Don’t understand why is now so expensive and will never go again. As a matter of fact you can get way better sushi dinner experience at Wasabi for $60. Very disappointed!

    It was my first time there and I ordered the kona Loco and it was pretty good. It was a loaded dish and everything complimented each other. My besite ordered the French toast and it was very nutty. The bread was actually different, yet the sweet but not overpowering paired well. The raspberries and blueberries added the final touch.

    AWFUL experience. Wait staff and hostesses were worthless and didn’t even make eye contact as we said “excuse me, excuse me!” several times trying to get drink refills but we’re ignored this no avail. Had to get up and go to the kitchen to ask for appetizer plates. They turn the lights down super-dark around 7p, a DJ showed up playing club music around 8p (why??). When the food finally did start coming out to our table of 9, it arrived over a span of almost 30min, one plate at a time, and our 3year old was second to last receiving her child’s pizza. A steak was delivered BLUE, not even slightly raw, but blue. Food and drinks were terribly over priced to be so average (once we finally received them!). I have never been more disappointed in a restaurant and was embarrassed to have taken my family there. I know now why it was so easy to get reservations for 9 on a Friday night. I’ll never go back. To the staff: put down your cell phones and do your job please.

    Table service was good but staff was overall unprofessional, more interested in listening to music and hanging out with one another rather than ensuring guests were attended to. Food was good, but for the price it did not meet expectations. Wasn’t terrible, but probably wouldn’t go back.

    I have been coming to Kona since college (let's pretend like that was not a long time ago) and the experience keeps getting better with time. Tuesday nights they have an "industry night" with a DJ, drink special and lots and lots of energy. You can go anywhere in this city and have a margarita, but I promise this is the only place you can go and have a margarita, eat a wagyu steak with Sushi (yes really), with good service and listen to Bad Bunny at the same time. It is on the pricier side, but the experience is well worth it.

    They must have forgotten to put in our order so we waiting over 45 minutes to then have them come and tell us that they couldn’t make my meal after all, and that they were trying to hurry. Then the music was so loud you couldn’t even hear one another. Our waitress never came to check on us until the food finally came. It was AWFUL!

    It looked like they had a very busy day. There was a lot of debris on the floors, and generally not very clean. The booth we were originally seated in had wads of paper and other debris in the booth. We asked for another seat, and the staff was quick to respond and got us seated somewhere else.

    I made a reservation at 2pm when Kona's Happy Hour begins. As I was looking over our receipt, I noticed the waitress charged us regular price for items that are discounted during Happy Hour. Will be contacting management to get this taken care of. On top of that, the service was extremely slow.

    My husband and I have enjoyed visiting Kona Grill in multiple states , but this dining experience we didn’t enjoy. We ordered 2 drinks that was so sweet we couldn’t drink them. We ordered appetizers; spicy tempura shrimp which was good, but not spicy. The other appetizer was the chicken and shrimp lettuce wraps, which was also too sweet to eat. Fortunately for us the main dish of Lemon Garlic Penne Pasta was good. Overall I was disappointed and probably would not revisit this location in future.
