Average Food

Happy hour was good. Food is very average. Had to send a sushi roll back because it tasted like cardboard. Would not go back here or to any of the Kona Grill locations.

I might have made a bad choice again. This wasn't my first trip to Kona Grill, and I should have known better. My friends talked me into going back. I figured that after about seven years they might have changed. The answer is no. Their menu is quite extensive, but that's about it. The service wasn't good either. Had to... More

Came here for the first time tonight and honestly, I was expecting more both in service and food. Every time we asked the waiter a question about the dish he repeated the description word for word. He didn't seem too interested in what he was offering, but anyways, on to the food. I ordered the calamari and avocado egg rolls.... More

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!
