Decent food and service, needs noise control

The service, food were quite good, but the background music was blasting and made conversation nearly impossible. I asked for the music to be turned down and it was, marginally. This would limit my likelihood of returning, despite the overall positive experience.

Kona Grill is a great medium-pricy steak house with a Hawaiian twist. You don't have to be very dressed up to sit in the 3 season patio area. Great service and friendly wait staff.

I ate at Kona for lunch and they had the lobster mac n cheese I had been looking for. Everything was very good and my server was really nice. I was alone but she checked on me continuously. I would definitely recommend. They have sushi as well.

Kona grill feels like the chain that it is - that slightly impersonal feeling that you could be in anyone of their 30 plus locations. The food was average to good, desserts appeared ordinary, service was fine. My main complaint was the incredible noise level from the other patrons, the bar and the kitchen. There is person working the kitchen... More

I would suggest if you... More

Visited there as a couple for a weekday lunch. The interior was nice and modern (beautiful fish tank displays) and despite the busy lunch hour by a crowd of business groups, we were able to be seated right away without reservations. We ordered a miso soup, potstickers, and crispy tuna tartar from the appetizer menu...and 2 sushi rolls for lunch.... More

I am now officially a regular at the Kona Grill. A group of professional women meet once a quarter and we ALWAYS eat at the Kona Grill. I can make the reservation for up to 20 women without a lot of notice, muss or fuss. They are flexible on the exact number -- right up to and even after we... More

I took a client out to dinner tonight and ended up being embarrassed about my venue suggestion. Service was awful. I had to remind the server twice that I had ordered another beer, and he brought out my miso soup (which was mediocre at best) AFTER my entree was served. Just no excuse for that. I ordered the seared ahi... More

Wanted to dine here because of the varied menu. Unfortunately, after trying the restaurant via email and phone, and receiving no response, we proceeded to Book anyway. We have one severe peanut allergy in our party, and a secondary other nuts allergy. When we were seated, at least 80 % of the menu was off limits because they choose to... More

The food was fresh and the service was awesome! Great drinks, great location, and reasonably priced! Most places downtown get really pricey for the amount that you get. But we were having a nice night out and it was well worth the trip. We will definitely be back!
