We stopped in for an after-theater dinner, which is sometimes hard to do when many KC restaurants close early. At 10:15 PM, Kona Grill was very lively (which on this occasion also meant there were a number of loud, drunk women). In spite of the...More

Loved the open bar, open to the street, fun atomosphere and quick good food. Especially liked the lettuce wraps and the quick and friendly bar staff.

Sushi was wonderful. We wanted to take advantage of Happy Hour but both times we came in, it was crowded and no tables so get there early. Drinks were good too!

If you are visiting Kansas City you should put the Country Club Plaza on your list-- and especially in spring and summer when the patio is open, consider the Kona Grill for your meal/ drink option. "Professional" scene for the young business type-- but perfect...More

A big group of us dined here on Saturday evening and had a wonderful time. Our waitress, Grace, was very pleasant and did a super job with our large group. The food was incredible..as it always is. Wonderful time.

We could see this restaurant from our hotel and it was always busy. We knew it must be good to have the constant swarm of customers going there. We decided to try it and sat outside on the patio. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly...More

First, let me be clear, I am fairly critical of sushi establishments. The bar is sit high, so meeting or exceeding those expectations can be tough with me :) a little snobbish, I know... Kona is a combination of an outdoor (patio), with a sports...More
