Kona Grill was amazing! We went before a show at the Palace Theater - had a 6:45 PM reservation (with the show at 8) and we let the server know we were in a little bit of a rush. It was no problem - they brought everything out together like we requested and everything was amazing! Kona Grill offers a little bit of everything - definitely try the Smoked Gouda Fondue for an app! The flatbreads were awesome too! Overall a great experience...cocktails were also great! Will definitely be back (and we traveled 45 minutes for the show but would definitely go back just for dinner).

Had a reservation for 8 yet the table was not setup when I arrived - and the restaurant was not very busy. Why make a reservation is the table is not ready? Also three or us had a problem with our order as far as the wrong items or ingredients. The staff was very nice and apologetic however. But for an almost empty restaurant, I don't understand why it was so difficult to have a table ready and get our orders right.

Sadly, it appears Kona Grill has not yet reached bottom, but continues to slide. The Kona Chopped salad is about 25% smaller than originally, with no bacon in sight and some of the chicken came in large pieces, so we could do the cutting. As others noted, sushi prep takes forever. Since they are probably at the top end of their competitive price range, they are reducing quality and quantity. Mitchell's, PF Chang's and Cosi have left this strip entering the Stamford Mall, I fear Kona will be next. Apparently the discount apps and half price wine nights may be the only things keeping them afloat.

Its an interesting menu with something to please everyone. The restaurant wasn't crowded at all and our service was slow, which was okay because we were there to linger. But not when we wanted our coffee at the end of the meal. The booth seats have little cushion left in them so little that one of our friends had to use a couple coats to sit on. They are a sushi place and don't offer brown rice - surprised. Waitress mentioned we were the 3rd person to ask that day.

Service was good, food was ok. Only real drawback was that they didn't have around half the beers on their menu. 2nd time this has happened.

I've been there many times in the past and have loved it. This time, however, it was terrible. The cleanliness at the table was poor - the table was dirty and sticky, the place mats had food in them and were sticky. Our waiter tried to clean everything, but our arms were still sticking to the table. (yuck). They changed the menu - fine, but paired ratatouille (French) with Asian style sea bass and fried rice. Bizarre. The ambiance was nice - eating outside on a beautiful night and nice outside lighting. The waiter disappeared and we had to track him down a few times--for our drink order (& we only got 2 of 4 drinks ordered), appetizer order, etc. We debated leaving - service took forever and it was embarrassing to have guests along to a restaurant we recommended with the experience so poor..

Have been here before. Food OK and plentiful. All appetizers very good - salads had too much dressing - better to serve on the side. Servers well trained. Not cheap.

I did not care for the macadamia nut chicken- the chicken tasted old and brined and had a lot of cartilage. My companion enjoyed his entree very much. Sushi was good. Overall I would not go back, but maybe I picked the wrong featured dish.

As always the food was outstanding! Our server did a great job by keeping us informed but unfortunately she had to do quite a bit of apologizing for things taking a long time to come out. It was not even 1/3 full so I don't understand the problems. First our three drinks from the bar took a very long time. 1 Sangria and two margaritas (not frozen). The sushi bar was understaffed because they had to apologize to us and another table about the long wait for sushi. The hot apps and the entrees were spot on. We could not have enjoyed them more. The last course was a problem again. The desserts were fantastic but we asked for 3 double espressos with a shot of Frangelica in each. Apparently the espressos sat on the bar until the bartender got around to pouring the shots in and by the time they got to the table they were cold. This place has been around for a long time. That is a rookie mistake that I don't understand. Bring the shots to the table then bring the hot espresso with the desserts. We will go back because of the food. Hopefully the service will improve.

The noise level was unbearable. For that reason alone I would not recommend Kona Grill. Our server was great. I had a spice problem with the chicken potstickers and there was no problem with getting an alternative dish. I guess it's great if you're into the bar scene.

Good food but service could be better. We had a friendly waiter who disappeared. One of our party members has a gluten allergy that he revealed prior to ordering, and rather than substitute a gluten free option for the sauce that accimpanied the Kona filet, the waiter simply told our friend not to eat it. When asked he then went into the kitchen and the chef prepared a gluten free subsitute of the same sauce. It took awhile and the meal was almost finished by that time. The salmon with rice was good but the accompanying bok choy was chewy and hard to cut. The sushi a neighboring diner had looked good. We sat outside as it was nice. The iron chairs scrape horribly. There must be a way to muddle the sound.
