Always good to find a capable sushi restaurant with non-sushi options. The menu was full of options even for the occasional seafood / sushi eater. Drinks were good, but no deal at $12 for glass of red. Service was very good. Can't say enough positives about our server. She checked back regularly. Avocado app and Caesar salad were great. My Korean chimichurri flank steak was more rare that I requested. Good news was that it wasn't tough, but it was unsettling to my preference. Almond beans were bland. Garlic mash were fine but unremarkable. Wife had red snapper which was very good. Coconut sauce with hers always was a winner. Something happened in kitchen though, as we waited a very long time between app and entree. like nearly 35 minutes. That was disappointing. And sitting within 4 booths of the kitchen, an elusive fruit fly made the booth experience less than ideal.

Would go back to try again, but for $90 w/tip for 2 people and 1 drink each, likely only going to target happy hour vs a meal.

I do not eat chicken I specifically asked the waitress if my food came vegetarian, she said yes. And out came a chicken and vegetable dish. However, the manager did take it off my bill and we sent the food back. Secondly, they had to many flies, flying around. I spent most of my meal fanning which was annoying and a appetite spoiler.

We sat in the bar for Happy Hour. It was definitely noisier than the dining area, but the specials were awesome. As usual, the sushi was fantastic!

They didn't have the item I wanted on the menu any longer. I ordered a chicken dish and didn't like it. The waitress and manager didn't make me feel bad about my decision. They were very considerate and accomadating. I ordered the snapper and it was great! My boyfriend ordered salmon and it was great as well. The margaritas we're good, appetizers were great, our server was great! A bit overpriced, but overall good.

I’ve always enjoyed Kona, but was very underwhelmed this time. Food was mediocre (flat bread pizza seemed a bit stale and just luck warm). Our sever was very personable , but went MIA on a few occasions for lengthy periods.

We enjoyed Father’s Day at Kona Grill and I already recommended this restaurant to my family and friends. We used open table to make reservations and when we arrived, we were promptly seated. The menu offered a variety of selections and our meals were delicious.

My boyfriend and I came here starving and ready for some drinks! We enjoyed really good mojitos. We ordered a flatbread, sushi, and he ordered some sliders as well. The portions are huge! His sliders were almost two regular sized burgers, and they were about $7.50. The flatbread was also large. The sushi was awesome and the price can’t be beat - it’s hard to find good sushi that doesn’t break the bank. The only downside is happy hour is only in part of the restaurant.

Overall it was a good experience. It was our first time here and my first time using Open Table. We ended up here because all of the other places my husband was interested in were closed... it was Memorial Day. He also works in a restaurant and this was his only day off and we were celebrating his 40th birthday. Our server was very good... friendly and helpful and we never had to ask for refills. The ambiance was nice except the fact that there were gnats in all of our faces during the entire stay. They have accordion style windows and patio seating so it’s just inevitable. No one complained about their food but it wasn’t anything to be super excited about it, either. I’d go back, sure, but it wouldn’t be my first choice if I had other options.

This is one of the few places that has never disappointed me. The food and service is always great!

Even my teenage nephews (who are very picky eaters) tried some things that are out of their comfort zone and loved them! One of which was the calamari. It is so good, I order it every time I come here.

Had not been to this establishment in a while, and was shocked when our party arrived and found the place to be virtually empty (in the dining room). Service and food was as good as was remembered. Menu, however, has changed and does not appear to be as appealing to a broad audience as previously.

Food and presentations wasn’t as good as it’s been in the past. Probably due to Mothers Day rush but too restaurants rise above and produce the same quality regardless.

The food was great as every-time I've been in there. Excellent taste and nice presentation.
This time we were there for a mother's day dine; and although I understand that the busy day for any restaurant, I made a reservation and was not completely honored as the host invited us to seat in the patio instead of waiting for a restaurant table... I was not completely happy with it, but I understood as, again, the busy day.

What I started to dislike was the fact that the girl asked us to go to the patio and take 'any table we want', well, all tables were occupied except for 2 that had a 'reserved' sign; When tried to sit, a waiter came to prevent us from sitting, because obviously was 'reserved'. Did'n matter what the host said. Well, 'luckily' after 3-5 min of wait/arguing there was an available table after the people in there had just finished. I was still barely ok as again, I understood the busy day and all that comes with it.

We ordered the food and took (clock in hand) 55 minutes to be served. You can still think, again busy day... but no this time as 2 tables on our sides, people arrived and ordered within 5-10 min after us and got their food within around 30 min... Plus, our food was assumed to be not complicated (fresh preparation, not cooked or grilled). The waitress did apologize for the delay, but still I felt we were receiving a worst service that the 'busy day' came with.

Still love the restaurant, but I felt was treated with less appreciation as deserved, even giving the busy occasion (Mother's day). My expectation were really low because of that, but still were not met.

After due diligence in looking for Mother’s Day special menu or plans, we chose to dine at Kona for their Sunday happy hour! Was deflated when server indicated they weren’t honoring it on mother’s day. Asked for manager and was told that he was there, ended up having to walk to hostess station to discuss disappointment. Sunday happy hour times including Sunday were on bifold at front door with no mention of not honoring happy hour. Although the manager did honor happy hour, it was very disappointing and misleading information that really dampened the excitement of mother’s day.
