Excellent food selection. Sushi bar. Creative rolls and a nice selection of standard America fare with the “Kona”
twist.

Excellent experience but a bit pricey. The carrot cake was excellent and big and worth every penny!

My server Franco was amazing. At first glance I was taken aback by the menu and worried about what to choose. He carefully went over the menu with us and in the end made perfect choice of the Salmon which is truly tasty! Will be going back!

Went on Tuesday (the day before Valentines Day) to get the date night offer, but it wasn’t offered. They had a “Valentines Day” listing with some different options for dinner but none of them sparked any interest for the price. We stayed anyway.

I don’t think they read any “special occasions” listed when you make a reservation on open table, as they didn’t even ask for my name when I arrived.

They must have had an issue with their soft drink machine as regular soda tasted like diet or zero calorie. The calamari was chewy. The tomato basil bisque tasted like pure pepper which makes me question if it was fresh or not. The filet, while cooked correctly, lacked in seasoning. The poke bowl was the same as last time.

Our server, Farley, was wonderful and attentive. I wish I could say the same about the food as this was the first bad experience we had. This is normally our go-to date night spot, but no longer.

Thankfully I had a $10 gift card and a free appetizer... otherwise I would have needed to speak to a manager.

Was our first time to Kona Grill. While the staff was pleasant and attentive, the wait time for drinks, appetizers and main courses were long and the restaurant wasn't at full capacity. The food itself was just OK. The appetizer shrimp, while flavorful, were very tiny. The main courses were decent but most disappointing were the desserts. The brownie was dry and the butter cake was not the least bit buttery but more like microwaved cornbread.
Again, the staff was pleasant and tried to manage expectations but doubt we would return.

A great choice for a business lunch with tables at a discreet distance. Attentive professional service without interrupting conversation. Enjoyable meal.

Nice Saturday night dinner. We enjoyed the food... I really liked the Oriental Salad and Macadamia nut chicken. Service was a little off I think due to a large birthday party in our section but our server was still very nice, just a little busy. Would definitely go again.

I have not been to this restaurant in quite some time and I was pleasantly surprised to see that everything is as good as it was before if not better. The service was excellent and the food is excellent and I would highly recommend going to Kona.

Food took a long time we had a reservation table ready quickly but after we order we waited 45 minutes to get the appetizers.
Not a good experience I wouldn’t recommend.

Have eaten here 100 times. Sushi seemed to be a little sub par compared to what I am used to from this Kona location. They also took my favorite wine off menu. oh well. Appetizers were fantastic as always and all other meals great

Exceptionally good food and very nice place for celebrating a special occasion. Service was excellent though slow. Waiter was willing to do separate checks for group of 11 and very pleasant about it. Management provided a generous tray of desserts to mark the occasion. Highly recommended overall.

Very attractive decor , above-average food, and fair to good service make this a place I would visit again. I love that the menu has an Asian bent to it, yet it is kid friendly too (my son is the burger or pizza kid who usually nixes most of our choices). All food we tried was fresh and yummy, however one small kink was that my husbands stir fry portion was very small, so he had to order some sushi afterwards. The bar area was really nice so next time I would stop in to eat or drink there for a different vibe. Overall, casual, local spot that I am going to add to my family-night out list for sure.

As usual the food was very good.
My one complaint is that the menu has consistently gotten with less variety.
Also the prices have risen.
Service was also very good.

Self Seating was a little weird. Service was slow. Our server was a step behind us at all times. Bar drinks took a long time and weren't as described on the cocktail list. Ordered a Cucumber Southside , that had no cucumber or mint and was basically just club soda. Food was great! Yellowtail Jalapeno Sashimi was excellent!

The bar took an extremely long time for the drinks. The waitress kept checking, but they took over 15 minutes to make two drinks. They need more bar tenders on Saturday nights.
