Michael was our server and he was great as we were a group of 9 ladies with seperate checks and he answered all our questions, had a nice personality etc. Food was very good as we all ordered dinner. My only complaint was that we could not have happy hour prices on drinks unless we sat at the bar. Now where do you find a bar that sits 9 women during happy hour? As a result most of the ladies didn't order drinks and I doubt we will come back for our monthly get together.

Always loved the Kona grill when I lived in Scottsdale about 18 years ago. It is still a great place for sushi and is almost always crowded. I recommend this to all. Enjoy

We were a party of 6 with all different tastes so the variety of the menu was great for our group. We had sushi, Thai, Chinese, steaks. Everything was fantastic. Our server was great! Gave us raspberries with the small amount of dessert we took home. He thanked us for being a great group. Very refreshing from a server.

Kona Grill at Fashion Square in Scottsdale: always high quality, always well prepared and presented, always served professionally, never disappoints. I have no knowledge of the other locations.

Our waiter Brian was an excellent server. Friendly, professional, smart, fast, efficient, and the food was very good. It’s amazing the difference a great waiter makes (no I don’t know him personally). Anyhow, we can always count on a great meal at Kona Grill but for an even better experience request Brian as your waiter (tall with blond hair).

The overall dining experience was okay. You should not expect a fine dining experience when located in a mall. The service and staff were friendly and professional. The food, however was not very good. The pot stickers were dry and tasteless. The sushi was just not very appetizing and two of our party that ate the sushi did not feel very good later. This experience was in contrast to our Kona Grill experience in Meridian, ID where we have gone several times and all with a good experience including the food.

Fish of the day was over cooked and dry. Wait staff removed my husband’s plate before I was finished, brought desert menus before I was finished and asked for his desert order all while I was still eating my entree.

Kona took a party of 12 of us same-day, which was great. Also, complementary dessert for a birthday. Food was really good and with a group, the price was extremely reasonable. Our waitress was kind of rude and disengaged, but I suppose we were a lot to handle for a big table later in the evening. Could've been better service but orders were accurate and speedy, so could've been worse...

Our server, June, was ah-mazing. My MIL's bday, our party of 6 trickled in so she had to come back for drink orders several times, 2 of them were GF... We were a hot mess and she was great through the whole thing. We felt like we were her only table.

The food (we all had sushi) was good, but it could've been crap and we still would've had a great night thanks to June.

All the tables were dirty and they were not busy, it was nearly 10pm. The ladies made it seem like a big deal to clean a booth off for us. Then, our order was made wrong. Ordered a Vegas roll and ingredients were left out. Both salmon and cream cheese and they didn't fix it, apologize or adjust check. There were only 2 others tables in the area and server was not attentive. It was the worse service I have had in quite some time, not to mention the sushi was not good, made wrong and a complete disappointment.

I was very disappointed with Kona Grill. I'd never been before, but my boyfriend and I decided to try it for sushi to celebrate my birthday. Kona was quite expensive (which I had anticipated based on its location - Scottsdale) and the food was mediocre at best. The tuna sashimi was noticeably dry and old, the specialty rolls have only 5 pieces to a roll (making it difficult for precise sharing), the specialty drinks were VERY small and mostly ice, and we were waited on by no less than 7 different servers, which meant repeating ourselves and our order several times and still having a wrong dish delivered and nearly missing one that we HAD ordered. A total disappointment. Thankfully my boyfriend and I could laugh about the whole fiasco, but I wouldn't never recommend it to anyone else.
