I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and our server was so sweet. She was on top of filling our drinks and making sure our food was on time. She asked us if we have an allergies or dietary restrictions and she brought a special dessert while giving us a nice message.

Not great. Took an hour and fifteen minutes for the food to arrive. My burger came without condiments and by the time they brought them I’d eaten half of it. Another person in our party had frozen butter on top of her overcooked fish. First time in a restaurant in over a year, less than stellar, and $21 burgers is more than I remember.

The place is looking a little run down and there was club music playing. It was Mother’s Day at 4.
Our service was great! And the food is a bit pricey, but we enjoyed ourselves very much.

It was mother's day, so I don't blame the servers. It's been slow and then a boom of service. Everything just came very slowly, and doing things like filling waters or ensuring place settings was less than I expected for the menu prices.

Still the staff was very friendly and the food was delish! And they make a great casamigos margarita!! Really helped with patience once I got the drink. For that, I would definitely give this place another try.

We had reservations at 1 PM. We sat down and ordered drinks and got them fairly quickly. We placed our order as we get our drinks and then we did not see our waitress for another hour after that, no check-ins what so ever. We talked to a manager and he gave us a complimentary shot of alcohol for the wait.. My husband doesn’t drink alcohol for starters. After that, we waited about another 45 min and finally received our food. Our reservation was at 1 and we did not eat until 2:45 PM.

Aside from arriving on time for my reservation and waiting in the restaurant entryway for 15 minutes before any hostess approached me....it turned out to be a great dinner date with the wife.
Our waiter (Marcus) was professional, informative, and always there when we needed him.
The food quality and presentation was literally immaculate. Perfect. Well done Kona.

Our food (salmon dinner with pork and shrimp fried rice) was over seasoned and extremely salty. Our rice was mushy and cold. The manager tried to make up for it by taking care of our appetizers and letting us know that they were training new cooks.

This place was the absolute worst. I have came all my life and have never had a issue until Tuesday evening. Our waitress right off the bat was horrible, we ordered food then turned to order drinks. It went downhill from there he was rude and refused to sever my friend TWO drinks, i did not have my ID so he assumed that was for me. I WAS DD. I would never let my friends drink under alcohol. He legit made the manger come up to us and we left after that because how poor this restaurant treated us.. And this all happened before even being served water . NEVER COMING AGAIN! I don’t remember the waitress name but it was the man with big hair tied.

First time having dinner (usually come for weekend brunch).

Our server, Izzy was amazing! She was attentive, gave us honest recommendations, and took the best care of us during our visit.

Ribeye was delicious and cooked perfectly. Macadamia Nit Chicken dish was tasty. Side salad was large and the dressing was super tasty. Margarita flight was served in a cute presentation and all chosen flavors were delicious.

Save room for dessert! The carrot cake and
Brownie dessert were both scrumptious, and very generous portions!

I have a 5 month old baby. When I called to confirm my reservation I requested to be seated outside because my son is calmer outdoors. I was confirmed I would have an outdoor table. When I got there they said outdoor is first come first serve and there were no tables available. I had to then wait.

This was our first visit to Kona Grill, which was on a Tuesday night. The food and service were very good. I knocked it down one star due to the tent not being available, even though I was assured on the phone that it was open. They initially sat us in the patio area, which has very small round tables, more the size for appetizers than dinner. We eventually moved to the main dining area.

Our server, Dina, was excellent. Very good recommendations, and was very attentive.

We ordered the Surf & Turf, which for us was a New York Strip steak & Yamada roll. The steak was ordered medium rare, but arrived medium. This isn't uncommon for non-steak houses. The steak had good flavor. The Yamada roll was excellent. We also opted for Dina's recommendation of the crispy garlic potatoes, which were awesome.

Overall a good experience.

We had 3 different issues with our food. I had pork in my dish when I requested NONE. THEN didn't get shrimp in the dish when it was remade. My husband ordered Brussel sprouts and got string beans. I did speak to a manager.... we were offered a free appetizer NEXT time. It was my husband's 1st time there and we were celebrating his 61st birthday. Not happy, to say the least.

Our reservation was at 7:30pm. We didn’t get seated until after 8pm. We had wine tasting scheduled for 8:45 across the street. We let our water know we were in a rush and we only ordered sushi. By 9pm, we still hadn’t had any food, our drinks were made incorrectly, and the waiter was nowhere in sight. I understand a busy night but this was unacceptable. We asked to speak to the manager and the waiter instead brought us a $10 coupon for the next time we came and said the manager was too busy to come by. Won’t be returning ever again.
