Primarily focused on a decent place to eat and work with a customer, but I found a fun spot that has all the trappings of a great happy hour patio bar with pretty people at it:) Sushi was decent though I stuck to rolls. Jambalaya entree was spicy and filling. Easy place to like!

Went to Kona Grill with family visiting from out of town. The only good thing was our pleasant server. We had fruit flies flying around us. We waited 45 minutes for dinner (and it wasn't terribly busy for a Saturday night). When it did arrive, one plate had hair on it (sea bass). Our guest was hungry so he "ate... More

This restaurant is fantastic in every way. From our initial interaction with the server to the speed of the food, every aspect of our dinner was delightful. They have a wide range of food and drinks on offer and also offer a selection of sushi. You are able to either have a sit down meal or sit in the bar.... More

Even though it's a chain restaurant but the fish choices are amazing and done to perfection as the service is top notch as well.

Terrible all around terrible! Including service. 4 people and only given 2 menus. Ordered sushi rolls and only 1 out of the 5 were good. Not to mention we never received the correct roll when we first ordered! Miso soup cold and just an onion flavored soup! Really!?! Onion should not be the flavor of miso soup. Don't waste your...

We took a group of work colleagues here for lunch and shared sushi platters. It was very impressive and delicious. The local's amongst us recommended we try this place for evenings as they also have an impressive happy hour, coctails and evening meals.

Kona Grill immediately sounds like a Hawaiian or Japanese Restaurant. It is a fusion of many tastes. The sushi is excellent and on a par with every great sushi house I have visited in the Western Suburbs. Very efficient chefs (Latino instead of Asian). My favorite is the Amazing shredded Chinese Cabbage Salad. Fusion dishes are all excellent.

We haven't been to Kona Grill in maybe a year. My, how things have changed. My family of 5 had pad Thai, stir fry beef, hamburgers and snapper. The food was mediocre and the service was even less than mediocre. Stir fry in inedible and just spicy - no flavor other than spice. Pad Thai was average. Burgers was ok... More

Staff was awesome, thanks Coleen. Happy Hour menu has nice options; maybe needs a few more beer and drink choices. Food was very good.
