So I gave this place a second chance. I was away for business and it was out 14 yr anniversary so my love trekked down to meet me for dinner. I was hesitant to suggest Kona after my "Sodium Overload" experience about 6 weeks ago. The was slow but the food was good. I chose options that they would no... More

It was a monumental disappointment. Stop by after reading reviews and I had expected better. Ordered some rolls for appetizers which came out pretty decent, but the main course which was a Salmon and a New York Strip Steak "Medium Rare". Both came out well done and while it didn't ruin salmon as much the steak was basically inedible, so... More

The flatbread was well-preapared., crunchy and tasty. The sushi was a bit on the spicy side, however, this was mentioned before ordering. It was well-presented, although one roll was place in a...

This is always a great restaurant to dine at. The food is always good and the drinks are great. The staff was very friendly and took care of our large party with no problems. I would return.

I've been here a few times and I've had the same experience each time. Let me preface this by saying I can handle all levels of spice. I usually salt everything. Kona, however takes it to the next level of salt usage. I had the chicken & shrimp lettuce wrap and it was borderline inedible. If they cut down the... More

I've eaten here a few times on business. I think the food is ok, not great. Surprisingly busy. The last occasion I had a steak which was quite good, though. Staff was nice.

I've been here a few times. I love to get a Rainbow Roll or Dragon Roll and hot Sake. I also love the Mango Creme Brulee.

The grilled snapper was dry and smelled very "fishy". The server was tired and sort of disappeared after sitting us down. Will not go back. Very disappointed.

We found it by accident and were happy we did! They have Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten-free menu options in addition to regular. The oriental salad was very refreshing, yummy dressing, generous portion to feed 2-3 people. Even tough the y mask spicy dishes, some were spicier than expected. Potstickers were a little too spicy for my teen by good for... More
