I really enjoy the ambiance of this restaurant. It provides a cozy place where you can sit and enjoy a nice meal and the company of family and friends, while delivering a delicious meal in a classy and fine tradition. The food is not too expensive and the service is excellent. It can be a little noisy at times but... More

We went to dinner at Kona and had a great experience. There's nothing about the street appearance of Kona that provides a harbinger of the meal you are about to enjoy. Likewise, the interior is a severe look with harsh lights. It's a bistro, not a romantic dinner for two. The service at Kona was very good, especially for a... More

Kona is a local ("must eat at") restaurant. Ask any local. indoor and outdoor seating, reasonable prices. Not a huge menu but delicious.

Kona has its ups and downs but remains a favorite for us. Their salmon and smashed potatoes salad is consistently one of their best dishes.

This small town has some surprisingly good restaurants. Kona has a limited menu but the focus is on fresh and local. I generally go there for lunch and there are always a couple of excellent soups, good salads, burgers and sandwiches. All with a twist - a special spice or presentation.

Cute little place right in town - stopped in for lunch while visiting my daughter. Had the chicken Gouda sandwich with a side of apple slices really good. She had the turkey sandwich and said it was very good she got the homemade chips which I tried and loved. Very reasonable- only draw back is the ladies bathroom has no... More

For Oxford, this restaurant bar is above average and has some unique dishes that we enjoyed, with a pleasant bar. It is not a destination restaurant with high end dining, but average to above average food with pleasant servers. I would recommend.

We eat at Kona all the time and especially enjoy the tasty and value priced lunch specials. Also my top favorite here is the almond cheese cake. To die for !! Kona is an outstanding and friendly place to eat in Oxford.
