Great place to enjoy an evening out for business or pleasure. Service is fabulous, food is delicious and happy hour drink deals are good. The Cuban sandwich with sweet potatoe fries was very tasty!

It is in a great location. The menu has a variety of good meal choices. The food was good and it is in a pleasant atmosphere. The location had fast and great service. It is convenient when shopping at La Cantera. I have and will continue to recommend it to others.

I have been to this restaurants twice. My first time was my friend's birthday dinner party. It took a long time for everyone's food to come out.

It has been about 6 months, so I wanted to give this restaurant another chance. I went there again for lunch with my girl friends on January 23rd, 2018. The service wasn't that great. Our waitress wasn't nice. She didn't listen until we finished what we want for our food. At the end, she gave us the whole bill without asking if we want to pay our own dishes. We asked her to split the bill, I wanted to ask her to split a starter with my friend; once again, she didn't wait to listen to my request. She just got the bill and did what she thought was right. One of my friends gave her $0 tip. I gave her some because I felt like at least she served us, but I didn't really want to give her any tip. I don't plan to go back to this restaurant any time soon.

We arrived on time for our reservation, but two employees were so busy conversing with each other they never acknowledged our presence to say we will be with you in a moment. 7-10 minutes later, she started to seat us and I had to say please note we had a reservation through open table. Our open table reservation noted we were both celebrating birthdays. That was never acknowledged during our visit.

This restaurant was very loud and hard to talk to anyone at the table. The menu was very limited but overal the food was great. I was very unhappy with my waiter as he barley checked up on us and was very rude when he did. I will not be dining here again because of my bad experience with the waiter.

Went here for our 25th anniversary.

Service was good. The waitress was attentive and pleasant. She promptly fixed an issue with the food.

Food was ok, but nothing special. For the price, we expected to be wowed by the food, but it was just ok. The mashed potatoes were cold on both steaks but I was able to get some hot after telling the waitress. They had a slightly odd taste. The mixed veggies were non-descript and bland. The steak was cooked as ordered but my daughter and I both thought Outback was better. Overall, the food was not bad but certainly nothing we would come back for, especially for the prices.

It was fairly noisyeven though we were in the back and there were only 3 tables occupied while we were there. Most people were at the bar or outside, but we had a hard time hearing the other people at our table.

We ordered the ny strip, kona filet, pad thai, a sushi roll and kona burger. That plus 2 beers and 2 sodas was $140.

Service is very poor. On two occasions that our group decided to arrive early for happy hour, I felt like the waiters wouldn't acknowledge us until we'd get their attention. Then once we were seated for dinner, again we were ignored until I asked for a waiter 😠. This kind of service is not appreciated, especially when you have some elderly friends in our group that can't tolerate long waiting periods. At this point, we're not really sure that we feel comfortable going back 🙄🤔

It was too noisy. I had to shout to talk to my friend across the table and my throat hurt after a while. The food was good but it was a bit too pricy The waiter did not bring the check after we said we were done with the mean and everything.

Overall the food was great. Dinner for two was just over $45 with a small appetizer. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive. The la cantera location is very nice inside and out. Several seating options to choose from; booths, tables, sushi bar. The tuna sashimi was outstanding and I will be going back.

First visit. Very clean restaurant, great service. Prices a little higher than average for this type of cuisine, but perhaps excusable considering the "high rent" area. Food was very good...just over-priced as stated. Atmosphere was more for 'shoppers' &/or business than for a friendly or family dining experience.

Like a silk hat on a pig , on every large screen tv , there was martial arts boxing . So appetizing to see people get beat up and bleed during what could have been an elegant outing .
We were t given napkins till we asked for them .
Food was excellent and beautifully presented and fresh .
Service was attractive but rushed and frenzied . More pinache could be used .
We might try it again .

Food was great! Our server wasn't very attentive nor did she seemed interested in us whatsoever. Another thing I noticed was in my sisters old fashioned there was a sticker on her orange peel. Now this can be something the bartender may have not seen but it tells me that they don't wash or properly clean their fruit before just putting it in the cocktails they serve. It was probably just an off night but for a frequent customer I was very disappointed.

The waitress was wonderful. The restaurant was hot and had spider webs in the corner by the booth we were seated in. The food was ok which was disappointing because I used to love their sushi.

My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary because we didn't want something too fancy. It was great, he said it was some of the best sushi he'd tried. I got a pasta dish and it was wonderful, I thought I would take it home and enjoy the rest later but I ended up eating it in the car. Good place to eat for a date or fun with some friends after shopping. Overall just a nice place.

I love Kona Grill. It's one of my favorites. Tonight I ordered my usual without the pork in my rice and they brought me bacon in my vegetables. I didn't know that I'd have to tell them be sure not to put bacon in anything. I know the vegetable varies by night. However, the veggies don't normally have bacon in them. It took over an hour to receive my food. However, that plate and the other plate with bacon was complimented via the manager. I'm glad she did that, I would have been extremely disappointed with any other service. From now on I need to specify no pork in anything!!!
