Service and food was terrible. The waitress was trying to do her job just no support from manager or team. We had a party of 7 waitress had to bring food by herself two at a time. My steak was not cooked properly. I went to the Kona Grill in Chicago they had amazing food and service. So for Mother’s Day I decided to take the family to the Kona Grill in Sarasota and it was terrible.
may have been because of Mothers' Day but service was very slow. Ordered coffee and desert for instance and got the desserts finished the desserts and still waited on coffee.
Food was very good but for the price the sushi rolls were not sufficient. Had to order sides to make up the difference. Glad we found it and will go back as the menu did offer a good variety of options.
Great waiter, we went for the brunch but at 11 they said it was over! They opened at 10 and the website said 11, so we couldn’t get outside. Our waiter came back and said the staff was mistaken and brunch was on. It was delicious so this made up for the confusion.
Food was really good a bit on the pricey end. Service was excellent. I had the sea bass and it was delicious.
Went for a birthday celebration and we had a fantastic evening. Food, Drinks, and service were above par! Thank You!
Food is just “ok” and definitely overpriced - spend your money elsewhere.
Andy, come in during our Happy Hour Monday-Friday from 2pm-6pm and all day on Sunday. Our pricing is from $3.00-$9.00. You will see the value is great. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
Kona is amazing! The food is fabulous and the staff are wonderful! We go to Kona most Friday nights. Love it!
Marley, Thank you for the 5 star review! See you on Friday and please introduce yourself to one of the Managers. Thank you again and have a wonderful day.
Food was delicious and large servings.
Thank you for the great comments! Hope next time we can give u 5 star service!
Food was great and our waiter Montana was fabulous. We had a fun night.
Excellent. Noisy inside but we sat outside and it was perfect. Went for UTC dining special. Great value.
I thought there was a little attitude at the hostess stand by one of the hostess.. Very busy so that could have been it. Past service was very good. Food has always been very good.
We went to Kona for our anniversary dinner. Our server was attentive and helpful. The food and drinks were delicious.
Good service and good Asian cuisine.... will go back
The food was awesome and the drinks were too! I love the brunch vibes there! the dj was great!
First time dining here. The service and food were excellent. Great sushi! We were glad that we were seated back toward the sushi bar because the music was loud in the main dining room. We didn't know they had outside tables. We will be back and will sit outside.
First time there/ great menu and service - margarita flight awesome and literally best salad ever!
All good , could benefit from timing the salad before meal. Not at the same time. And some kind of table snack with water.
Great outdoor experience. Food is as delicious.
Wonderful and varied menu. Delightful wait staff...

The music so loud that couldn't hear others talking at the table unless they shouted.
Extremely loud music. Hard to converse. Took away from dining experience
First time eating there in many years. Very good..eager to return
3 out of the 4 of us all had the fish. 2 of the orders were slightly under cooked. It was still quite good. The music level on the patio was a bit too much.
Great service on the outdoor patio. Meal was delicious and atmosphere was lively!
Though we had made reservations in advance, we had to wait about 20 minutes beyond our time slot. This was forgiven as the service was good and food even better. Might be 2nd or third time here in 2+ years. Well visit again soon.
Great food. Loud music.
Very good sushi 🍣 and very helpful waitstaff! Will return!
This is not a restaurant to choose:
Service was not timely
Food was costly
Portions were tiny and cold
Orders were wrong
Sat on a cold patio
Will never return!
Food is unique make sure you ask what is in it. I accidentally ordered raw fish but they did remove it from my bill.
Food was great. Playlist was outstanding. Compliments to the DJ.
Food was cold. I was there a week ago and it was a totally different experience which is why I went back. Except this time I took 5 other people with me because of my prior experience. I felt like I let them down.
great combination of choices in the menu and good quality food
Excellent service and good food!
Great family restaurant.
Love the manager at this location - he visits every table and is very personable. Food is always so yummy and hip. The decor/atmosphere is very good, but what ever they use on the tables to clean them makes the tables very sticky which I'm not a fan of...
The music was too busy and loud
VERY spicy sushi even for people who like it spicy.
Told you it was for a birthday but the server never mentioned it or offered anything. Secondly the server brought out sushi on one plate when it was ordered separately as in not sharing. Overall we were somewhat disappointed with our first experience at your restaurant.
Service was lackluster at best. Took 15 minutes after being seated to get water. 20 minutes to get first course, blamed of course, on the kitchen having "a big order". Sushi is 95% rice, 5% fish and wrapper--total rip-off for both flavor and substance. 30 mins after finishing sushi appetizer dinner came, lukewarm--steak sandwich (with watery, flavorless au jus) and rock hard sliders, clearly sitting for a while prior to pick up. Manager did his obligatory check in around the patio asking how dinner was. Completely ignored my feedback (almost what i stated here) and said "thanks for joining us this evening". Too many other better restaurants at UTC if you want decent food and service. Would not recommend or return
We ordered the Tuna Poki bowl as usual and it was VERY spicy! Wish there was more shade on the patio for seating
