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.

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.

Brought my 6 year old grandson for first time. He wore his Kona Grill tee shirt & his meal was free. The server was thoughtful to the little guy & your sushi chefs were so kind to Caiden when we went to thank them for the orange 🍊 bear they created. Well done Kona Grill.

The hostess was not very cooperative with my daughter arrived 10 minutes before I did even though she explain to them that I was in traffic and I would be there within 10 minutes. When I arrived they seem to be more concerned about their social media on their phones and had me stand at the concierge's counter for five minutes. I found that the bar is not consistent I ordered a cosmopolitan 2 times and each one with me differently no consistency I asked for certain items when I was given my entrée and never received them. I want time experience is all I need to turn me away from poor service. I would not recommend this place to any of my associates.

Our party of four found the service to be marginal and slow, for the most part. Our waiter seemed totally disinterested and he didn't contribute to the evening in any way. I would not recommend ordering steaks, as they simply couldn't get them right. It seems like this could be a decent location, but it seems the indifferent level of service blanketed the entire experience. I might try it again sometime, but I'm not rushing back.

Food always delicious. BUT..... took along time to get a server to come to us even though we were told to just take a seat wherever . THEN.... took awhile to get our drinks. We ordered and after that all was fine . I couldn't understand since the restaurant was not at all busy.

Definitely go for Happy Hours; the selection of food and sushi you can get is worth it.
And since it's Happy Hour, the price is much more reasonable.

We went back for the sea bass which was great the 1st time we ate here. Brought my parents as they love fish and i thought they would love the place. Our server got our sushi appetizers wrong and was "told" that was what we ordered. Things went downhill from there. We asked for water when we ordered, had to ask twice and when we got it there were something floating in all our glasses. I had to come out to get bottled water from the car as we were not comfortable of drinking it and doubted where the server got it from. Sea bass was nice and sushi was fresh but our experience was changed already because of the service we got. After finishing our main entrees, server brought the chopped salad last which she said would come out first. We probably wont be coming back for awhile.

Food was good and service was fine. We weren't rushed which was nice because we were celebrating my mom's bday.
The selection was varied enough that everyone was able to find something they liked. Best part of the meal was the dessert.
Only complaint is that when server brought over my mom's dessert she just placed it in front of her with no mention of why she was getting it. Would have been nice to have her wish her a happy bday or something.
Overall it was pleasant but I like Kona best for after work drinks and snacks.

The food was outstanding. We were very impressed by the special vegetarian menu as well as the gluten free menu as we had party members in both categories. Service was a bit on the slow side; we had a very large group and perhaps a second server would have helped. Sorry to hear that the chowder will be coming off the menu. Did I mention that the food was outstanding!
