Came here for a business dinner... We were nearly yelling to hear one another. I don't know if it is the acoustics of the restaurant but for a Tuesday night, it was busy. Thankfully, we had reservations. The food was wonderful and served quickly for a party of eight. No one had a bad plate... Good food and company. Perhaps... More

Enjoyed a great dinner Thursday night. They seated us in a nice booth toward the back of the restaraunt. We both enjoyed our dish. I ordered the pork tenderloin and it was excellent. My wife had a shrimp pasta dish and she had enough for lunch the next day. For dessert we shared the butter cake with ice cream and... More

Went to dinner last night with a group. We told them 19 and showed up with 23, but it never bothered their group in the smallest bit. The service was second to none. From the waitress, assistant manager, and general manager they were so accommodating to our group. We sat in the lovely private room that has an amazing atmosphere.... More

We had lunch here today and found the service to be slow and the food very mediocre. We walked in the restaurant at 11:05am and ordered pretty quickly. Food came out at 11:50am which is really not acceptable under any scenario but even more surprising given we were the second table to be seated for lunch. The Manager did come... More

We had heard rave reviews of Kona Grill, and were eager to try it for the first time. The avocado egg rolls seemed like a fun appetizer. They had only one red wine for their happy hour--but it was ok. When we ordered our entrees--Creamy basil pesto and Pad Thai, our waiter suggested putting the sauce on the side since... More

We are not huge sushi fans, but the sushi rolls at Kona are growing on us. Actually, we enjoy most of what is on the half-priced Happy Hour menu, which is definitely the time to go -- and they run both an early and late Happy Hour. Half-price items include Margherita Flat Bread; avocado egg rolls, a variety of sushi... More
