“This place still has great service when busy”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We went to the Kona Grill on Saturday night during Labor Day weekend. We made a reservation, and even though there was a wait when we arrived, we were seated immediately. The restaurant was full and alive. Our service was excellent, Leslie was our server. Our food came in a timely manner. It was hot, delicious and precisely what we ordered. I am a diner that usually only orders steak from a "steak house", but found the Kona Filet equal to steak house quality. Our drinks were always full and delivered with a smile. I usually don't expect such wonderful service when a restaurant is so busy, but, they pulled it off.

“Wonderful lunch!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I hadn't been to a Kona Grill in 5 years. I had forgotten how great their sandwiches are! Just great quality and service with such a nice staff. I had the club sandwich and it really was the best one I have ever had. I couldn't keep a good conversation with my friend because the quality was sooo great!

“Good food, excellent happy hour sushi specials”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Kona Grill's best attribute is that it is consistently good. If you're in the mood for sushi but your companions aren't, they've got you covered with chicken, steak or seafood entrees with Polynesian accents. The portions are normal-sized, too - no tiny "artfully prepared" slivers of food that do nothing to fill you up! As for the sushi, they offer the standard rolls plus a few creative ones - all are great quality.

The happy hour menu (available only in the bar) is simply fantastic. In addition to sushi rolls featured for half-off or significantly discounted prices, there are pizza and other selections. The Gilbert location has a large patio as well as indoor seating area so you don't have to sit directly at the bar to enjoy the happy hour. It's a great way to get a sushi or snack fix in a nice restaurant without breaking the bank!

“Love this place!”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

My sister and I meet here on a regular basis, and without fail, order what we consider the best item on the menu:(We don't even look at the menu anymore!). Oriental Salad plus Macadamia crusted chicken. It is SOOO good! Servers tell us it is the favorite item ordered. Obviously others like what they offer, as it is always busy, particularly outside, with younger and happy crowd. Hamburger is a HUGE 2nd choice,all 12 oz. of it,( that's 3/4 of a lb.!) cooked to perfection, with thin, but tasty fries. Servers are very good, always pleasant. Silly me, I love the granite sink in the ladies' john. Cool! Be sure to sign up for Konavers. Generous offering!
