This place looks upscale. The food looks upscale. But looks can be deceiving. My food took forever to come out and when it finally did come out everything was cold. I doubt I'd ever go back.

We had a reservation for 6.30pm, but were running late because our driver (son-in-law) got lost. We phoned and told them we would be 15 minutes late. We were told that would be no problem. It wasn't. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and immediately seated. The flowers I had ordered via Open Table for our granddaughter's 18th b'day... More

I was in Cherry Creek for a business meeting and we had dinner at the Kona Grill!! The dinner was great! The menu was very generous but not overwhelming. There were many healthy options and the service was great! I would definitely recommend!

The menu is much broader than one would expect from a place called "Kona" -- besides the sashimi, sushi rolls, and oriental-themed drinks, there are excellent sandwiches, salads, and specialty appetizers and entrees. We had a very good ceviche, as well as a very large and tasty ham/turkey/bacon sandwich on a ciabatta roll. The weather was good enough to eat... More

Very hot day while visiting Denver so decided after a morning at the Botanic Gardens to catch lunch and a movie at the Cherry Creek Mall. Walked by a bustling, crowded California Pizza Kitchen into the Kona Grill, which was almost empty. Warning bells should have gone off. Blame the heat. People were very friendly and the service was excellent.... More

This restaurant was a surprise hit for us. We stopped for lunch before doing some shopping and found the food and service to be outstanding. We started off with some Sushi which was great. My wife had the grilled Rainbow trout and I has the Seabass. We would highly recommend these dishes. Our waiter was very attentive.

After business meetings, a colleague recommended the restaurant and I'm so glad they did. The whole dining experience was awesome. Our server was great, she recommended dishes, checked up on us and was very accommodating. We started with the caprese salad...heirloom tomatoes and the freshest mozzarella. I had the oriental salad which was crunchy, tart and sweet. Companions had the... More

Went there with the wife as we were starving after shopping in the mall. We bumped into this restaurant by luck as it's quite at the end of the corridor. My wife took the steak, I took the pork belly. It was delicious!! Perfectly cooked, every mouthful was a real pleasure and we are not that easy to please. We... More
