Similar to some of the other reviews, we had a mixed experience here. Went on a Sunday evening around 6:30pm; they were playing loud music and sports programming from the bar area. The dining area is really too close with their open room design to buffer any of the noise - the volume inhibited conversation over dinner. The noise made... More

Lunch at quiet place in the mall was a nice break from after Christmas mall hustle and bustle. The fish tacos appetizer was enough for a meal and very "appetizing". Very good service and food.

This Kona Grill sits in the North Park mall - so took a while locating it just going off the address. Offered a wide menu selection including Japanese and American, so won't be difficult to find something. Had the Cuban pork sandwich which was quite good. A friend had the spicy shrimp roll which I tried - have had better... More

My friend, Diane, and I had lunch here. I ordered a Strawberry Fizz cocktail. Not the best drink I've ever had. It had no fizz and I couldn't taste any strawberry flavor. Diane and I ordered the Kona Cheeseburger. It comes with grilled onions, lettuce and tomato, and chipotle mayo. I hate mayo so I ordered mine with mustard. The... More

I love this place! The food is excellent... when you dine in. I wish there was more consistency. I always order the shrimp and scallop ceviche. The takeout portion seemed very small and contained very little seafood. A little disappointed yet, his still taste great.

I have only been to Kona a couple of times. Always for happy hour. The bar menu is very affordable. I have never had table service.

I came here for Happy Hour and ordered a drink and sushi. They had great prices for Happy Hour and the food was very good. I really enjoyed the outdoor seating.

I went here with a colleague on a Wednesday night last week. Amazing. Decor was beautiful. Service and the price for the quality of the food was great. After dinner, we grabbed a drink and dessert at the lounge and our server was even more amazing. Had the BEST carrot cake ever and I HATE carrot cake. The server swore... More

My husband and I recently had dinner at Kona Grill. This was not out first time there, and we have had good experiences in the past. It seems the attention to detail has really gone downhill, and that is unfortunate because in an area with so many restaurant choices they really have to stay at the top of their game... More

While visiting in Dallas we happened upon Kona Grill as a recommendation of a friend. So glad we did. Pleasant atmosphere and pace, good service and most important, excellent food. The manage came over to greet and assess our response to the Resturant, always a nice touch.
