“The food is still great!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Great restaurant located in West Omaha of Dodge Street. Ordered the Hawaiian Ribeye steak and it was cooked to perfection! Great atmosphere and love the giant fish tank behind the Sushi chefs. I must eat here everytime I visit Omaha.

“Great Food”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

My son and I wanted a nice dinner while on an out-of-town trip. We were looking at the menu outside the Kona Grill trying to decide where to eat and a Kona customer said “you better go in - the food is great” so we did and we were not disappointed. We shared an order of Rainbow Roll (California roll, tuna roll, salmon roll, shrimp roll, yellowtail roll) all which were excellent. At the recommendation of our outstanding server (Flame) I had the Miso-sake Sea Bass with the shrimp and pork fried rice. But what made the meal was the pan-Asian ratatouille which was excellent. The fish came out hot and flakey and the ratatouille was an excellent complement to the fish. My son had the Cheeseburger Sliders which he thoroughly enjoyed. We had a very pleasant meal and since there is a Kona Grill location in Denver, Colorado we will add Kona to our list of favorite restaurants to visit. We would definitely recommend Kona Grill to others.

“My Favorite Happy Hour”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Kona is the best place for Happy Hour from 3-9. Happy Hour is in the bar and patio areas only, so be sure to be on time if you want a spot. The menu for HH has many half price drinks, including delicious margaritas and cosmos, and many discounted apps. We usually order some sushi, avocado egg rolls with an amazing dipping sauce (my FAVORITE), and a pizza (the fig was delicious).

I would say HH is best when you have smaller groups of 4 or less. It's possible to fit more people, especially during the weekdays, but sometimes you will be out of luck.

“Kona Grill = fab Ruben sandwich, reelaxing bar”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We enjoyed Kona's easy going crowd, great slection of beers, Cut Spike whiskey, a Nebraska special, and what has to be the best Ruben sandwich this side on New York City.
Service was great, ambiance left nothing to be desired. In short a must when you are in the "fly-over-city" Excellent fun.

“Great place for happy hour!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Kona has a great happy hour with drink specials and 1/2 priced apps. I'd recommend trying the sangria...red or white they both were delicious! Our waiter Rob was excellent! He was very attentive even though the place was packed. We ordered the margherita flatbread, calamari, spicy tuna roll & crab crunch roll. This was more than enough for three girls to munch on! The flatbread had a great balsamic reduction on it. The sushi rolls were fresh and put together perfectly. The calamari could have had a little more crunch to it but the sauce more than made up for it. If you haven't been here I recommend trying them out for happy hour to get a taste...trust me you will return for more! Happy hour runs from 3-7. Oh and if you can, sit on the patio, it's enclosed but the windows open:)
