Nice lunch

My husband and I went to Kona Grill recently for lunch. We were both pleased with the experience. I had a lovely pork loin and he had pasta. We split a cake for dessert. Overall a very pleasant meal.

Took our daughter to the Kona Grill for her birthday tonight and to meet her new boyfriend. FYI - We have eaten at this same restaurant 2-3 times before and loved it. However, tonight things just started going south from the get go. My wife and I got there 15 minutes early and got seated at our table right away.... More

Went with friends for a party. The food was OK but was high priced, especially for the quality. The service was poor at best. The server took a very long time to get anything taken care of. A glass of wine that was ordered before appetizers was not brought until dinner was served. The one bright spot was that my... More

The sushi and sandwiches are great, and their desserts are legendary (you cannot finish the delicious carrot cake without help...lots of help!). I really enjoy the bar area for dining. Friendly, good specials and quality servings make Mona one of my favs

This is a great restaurant for an eclectic menu and good service. Medium priced, I highly recommend the sushi, las vegas roll, macadamia chicken.

We picked an early November evening after of day of balmy 70s to use a gift certificate at Kona Grill's outdoor dining. A bit disappointed when we arrived to find the outdoor dining had already been shut down for the season, but found the "inside" dining could be as close to the outside as one could hope for. Our table... More

I'm glad you had a great time at our establishment. I do apologize about the outdoor patio being closed. We closed our outdoor patio in October when the weather was below 50 degrees. Who knew in November we would still have 70 degree days? We plan on reopening the patio sometime in late March or early April. Please ask for... More

We arrived for dinner on a Thursday evening. Was impressed with the layout and the massive aquarium. There seemed to be a nice separation between the bar area and dining area.

Fresh seafood can be expected at this fashionable restaurant. The name suggests a Hawaiian menu, but traditional entrees are abundant. This is a good place to take a date you wish to impress and is located within one of the more fashionable of Carmel shopping areas.
