Our third trip to this local restaurant for us and we enjoy the waiting staff and the atmosphere. This Sunday was happy hour, so we will try that next visit.

We were visiting our son at UTSA and ventured to La Cantera for dinner. Kona Grill had great selections and offered choices for all of us. Well prepared and quickly served. Definite thumbs up.

Good food; 1/2 price wine by the bottle on Wednesday; terrible service. Very noisy and filled with very small, very screaming children, and bar patrons for happy hour. Not worth the trip.

First time here. Was recommended by my 22 year old niece's friend. Definitely for the younger crowd. More of a bar atmosphere. food was ok, Not my favorite. Had the lettuce wraps, portions were small for the price. My nephew had the cerveiche, too small for the price. He ended up finishing 4 other peoples food.
