Go see Tyler he is awesome. Sushi wasn’t the freshest but everything else was really good.
Delicious food and drinks and great service
I visit very often
Great place! Would definitely return. Our waitress was attentive and professional!
The service was not great or even good for that matter. The food was plated to look expensive so they did a fair job of elevating the cheap product selections. However, in order to cover up the fact that the steak was not a premium cut, they simply slathered garlic butter all over it and topped it with sprouts. I would expect for the price that the steaks would be premium cuts but they were more like what you could purchase at Costco, Sams, BJ's box store like that. The potatoes seemed like leftover home fries, they were dry and had no flavor until I ran them through the garlic butter that melted from the steak. The green beans were sparse, overcooked, and also covered in the same garlic butter. Basically, the only flavor on the plate was garlic butter. The steak was tough and full of gristle. No, I would not recommend this place to anyone nor will I return. I would not be surprised if they closed their doors. The location is great, so they may last a while in spite of charging premium prices for cheap quality.
We had a 7:00 reservation on a Thursday night for 6 people. Service was great. They do not rush you. We ordered drinks then we ordered apps, and then we ordered main meals. This was all done separately with no rush. Food was very good. This was the night of the NFL draft. After dinner we went out to the patio for drinks and. NFL podcast. Great night with friends. Get there early due to tough parking
Food was great and the menu is diverse enough that everyone can get what they prefer. Good selection of drinks and wine. Service was great!
Everything was amazing. Sever and food were great. Bottomless mimosas for brunch were so good. Definitely going back
Worst dining experience in recent memory. Service was ridiculously poor, drinks delivered wrong two times and after 40 minutes finally received our appetizer and it was wrong as well. Asked to speak to a manager but they never arrived so after 50 minutes with nothing to show but a high frustration level, we left. Would not recommend and will not be back!
Our server was amazing! But our food came out extremely late and cold. We were told that they are short staffed in the kitchen. But we had to send out food back. Once we got the food again I had to send mine back once more as my steak was under cooked. The manager comped a drink but never came by the table. Over priced for the food.
Service was slow. Server seemed overwhelmed, seat less people so server can be attentive. Our app took over 45 minutes to come out. DJ was good but music level during dinner was too loud for conversation.
Service was horrible. It took forever for us to receive our drinks and the server came by very infrequently for refills.
Terrible service , it's fine for college kids but not for any adults. The manager was a nice guy but the servers need more training
The manager on the front desk was amazing, got us a wonderful table outside and service was quick, good stuff.
Food not good at all ,desserts are terrible.
excellent as always, I really like Kona. Excellent sushi
We had excellent service from the time we walked in the door. Our server, Jam , was on point and made our get together very nice!
45 minute wait for a cocktail was unacceptable
Kona Grill is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Nobody can resist the Avocado Egg Rolls! Service was prompt & courteous.
Food was great but the music was too loud.
Avocado egg rolls were on point. Sushi rolls were great, as was the cilantro lime chicken.
Chloe was our server and was very attentive. Another nice dining experience!
The outdoor seating area is great. It wasn’t packed by any means, lunch time during the week. Outside most tables were full but inside was pretty empty.
Our server took a really long time to get to us, and didn’t seem to have an sense of urgency, even though she was nice.
We ordered. My husband got the tropical pork chops with mango and papaya chutney. I got the cilantro lime chicken.
The chutney was basically large chunks of mango and papaya. My experience has always been smaller pieces of fruit, in more of a jelly or jam sauce. It had a great flavor, but not what we were expecting. There was a large serving of mashed potatoes. Great flavor but they were seasoned with a red pepper and had a kick to them that probably should have been explained on the menu. The collard greens were barely cooked. I don’t mind my veggies this way, but when you order collard greens you expect them to be soft.
My chicken was grilled perfectly. Great flavor. The almond turmeric rice was also good, but once again seasoned with a red pepper that gave it a kick not mentioned in the description. The broccolini with mine was seasoned with so much of the same pepper I couldn’t eat it.
Our waitress checked on us once, immediately after our food was delivered. We don’t typically complain about food but we couldn’t have it we wanted. She never refilled our drinks, and I drained mine mid-meal. I would have flagged her down to ask, but we never saw her. I don’t know if she was serving somewhere else or just not out and about.
We heard another table with another server ask someone to find their server so apparently it’s a thing there.
When we finally saw her, we had been done eating and waved at her across the porch. She came over and we asked for to go waters, 2 boxes and the check. She brought one thing at a time and it took several minutes.
One nice thing is she recognized my husband’s card was an army credit card and gave us the military discount they offer there.
Probably a pass
put a note that it's my husband's birthday and reminded the server but nothing happened special at all. Food are salty and no flavor of authenticity like the Pad Thai I had, it's salty so with the meatballs my husband ordered. There's no crunchiness at all with the crunchy crab roll and can't even taste the crab.
I have eaten better chicken pad Thai elsewhere. Had no veggies, and the noodles were clumped.
Waitress was extremely friendly, helpful and made great menu suggestions.
The DJ was great, service was good, food was extremely cold :( , If I didn't have a couple of drinks, I would have been pretty upset, especially with the price of the food..
Showed up 10 min prior to our reservation. Table wasn’t ready so we sat at the bar. While sitting at the bar our table became available so I asked for the tab to be sent to the table. Bartender said it wasn’t possible. Sat down at the table and my phone wouldn’t pick up the table code for the menu. I asked for a paper menu and was told “they didn’t have one”... which of course I asked what they do if someone didn’t have a cell phone?? No answer was really given. Finally they found a menu... food was just ok- filet came out as 2 2ounce filets .. ODD.. service could use more training..
Great experience overall. Quick service, great food.
Good food and ambience. Always choose the outdoor seating if the weather permits
Just okay. Nothing special. A bit pricey for blah food.
Our Easter dinner was great. My 8 yr. old niece was with us and there were no kids options on the menu but our server indicated that we could get a pepperoni flat bread pizza. I had the prime rib and my sister tried at our servers recommendation the Sea Bass. Everyone enjoyed there meals. Kona Grill never disappoints.
Service was good. Food was good just a bit overpriced.
My new favorite spot!! The food was delicious and the ambiance was AMAZING.
Highly recommended! Great date night atmosphere, great food, and customer service.
We sat outside - it was quiet, the service and food were excellent. We will definitely go back.
The music was very loud, out server was just OK. Sushi was good but the Chicken Pad Thai was not. My drunk was $11 and not worth the $
Food was outstanding. Bar was a little slow in getting the drinks but overall a great experience.
We had a very nice dinner at Kona Grill. The server was friendly, the sushi was fresh, and dinner was delicious. There was a DJ who played great music, making it a very fun experience. It is a little pricey, but I’d have to say that it’s worth it.
This is a perfect review! Thank you Daph for the honest feedback and kind comments. We hope to see you again soon.
This was my first time having dinner, I really enjoyed the music and the outside table, however the food was cold when served but I was compen-sated . A reservation was made but still had to wait 10-15 minutes. Overall the night was nice out.
They could not get my steak cooked right. Sent it back once and almost again a second time. Flavor was alright, they just cooked it to death.
