“I wish they had a location in St. Louis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had lunch at Kona while in town on business and am so glad it was recommended to us. The food was amazing, had great service, and enjoyed the people watching on the outside patio. :) I wish they would open a location in St. Louis so I could go more often!

“Relaxing Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I visited this week and was very pleased with the experience. The server was incredible and knew when to interact, just enough and she was delightful. The food came at a nice pace and everything was delicious and presented well. Tuna Tower stands out as does the snapper. This has an interesting atmosphere since there is a patio, a nice size bar area, and a subdued dining room. Parking is always a challenge at the plaza but this was worth driving around to find a spot.

“Great Patio”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Like this place, but rarely get in. Good sushi near the plaza, and the bar is always packed! Even if I don't go in and just walk by, everyone always seems to be having a good time.

“Great service and food in KC CC Plaza area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Went to Kona Grill for the first time Saturday afternoon with a group of friends while we were visiting from out of town. The service was great, walked in off the street and had no problems getting a table for 6 or prompt attention once we were seated. Prices were very reasonable for the area and the portions did not disappoint either. Great place for a group outing, lunch or dinner. Outdoor seating along the Plaza is also available but may require advance notice.
