Fun patio!

The patio here is great for people watching! The sushi is fresh and delicious and the service is attentive. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas!

Popular joint located in North Park Mall really great happy hours with the food. Drinks are very good mediocre wine selections. The staff depending on the time you go can be quite immature for the establishment. The food is great the Picasso dish is awesome. Very good local place to meet young professionals.

Tu was our waiter for lunch. He was a very attentive waiter. California roll was good. Pecan Crusted Chicken was good - a lot of food. The Brocolli stir fry was very spicy though. Miso soup was good. The Moscow Mule good also. Very nice restaurant in Northpark.

My wife and I pulled into Northpark mall on our way out of Dallas. We were looking for something for lunch that we hadn't had before, but we're also pretty hungry. Of the first few places we saw there, Kona Grill stuck out to us. We ducked in for some lunch, and I'm glad we did. Our server was Jose,... More

best Ceasar salad ever! just the right amount of garlic in the dressing... kona filet cooked to perfection, medium-rare and juicy, well seasoned. carrot cake serves 3 people! for a shopping mall restaurant, this exceeded our expectations and is among the best steak restaurants I have visited so far.

I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese - to die for. My friend had the jambalaya and it was extremely spicy - very good flavor but be warned. The service was good, and everything was clean with a nice atmosphere, especially considering it's in a mall. I would go again.

Inside the Northpark Mall. Had some very good calamari, a miso sake sea bass with fried rice and Asian ratatouille (if there is a difference between Asian and regular I missed it) and a passion fruit crème brulee. All very good but.. there were lots of little bugs flying around and the noise level even at an off hour was... More

We visited mid week when it was half price for bottles of wine. Value for money meals. We had the macadamia nut chicken and key lime pie both superb. Meals are large, good quality and the service is fast,friendly and efficient. Good for families or relaxed dining
