    Both the bar and the kitchen was extremely slow( which is very unusual). Also- the sound level of the "background" music sounded as if we were in a club. I was surprised that no apology was offered nor any sort of course no compensatory gesture. We will still come- but this was disappointing

    The sushi was so so and expensive for the quality. $12 for edamame is a bit excessive. The kids meals in the bento boxes was the best food and best value overall

    I've been to Kona before but I went to brunch there for the first time. $3 mimosas and all the flavors are great. The only thing is their brunch menu was a little small and limited but it was still good.

    Love the wonderful waitstaff and the delicious, creative dishes, but am always put off by the loud raucous music that makes conversation almost impossible. The music would be welcomed on a dance floor but not at the table; no one wants “energetic” noise when they are dining with friends.

    We had a great time celebrating our Birthdays here. The appetizers were great. The food overall was good, a little spicy for our group but overall decent. Had a few things that came out not very hot and two meals out of 9 that came out well after the others. The complimentary desert for our birthday was delicious.

    Started with the Kona Calamari. It’s excellent & our goto app. I ordered The Krunchy Spicy Tuna (traditional roll). It’s a bit spicy. I’m not a “spicy” eater but I survived, though my mouth was quite hot. It was good. Next time I’ll go back to the Spicy Tuna (traditional roll, but milder) which I’ve had twice before & really enjoy. Hubby had Shrimp & Lobster (Kona specialty roll). It was very good. FYI: the tabletop screen offering games (we played TRIVIA) adds a charge to your bill. It wasn’t disclosed on screen but there it was on our bill!

    Was a great experience. The dining room was noisy with a couple big groups. I asked for a less populated area, and was pleasantly seated in the indoor patio. It was perfect. Food was delicious, service was exceptional and we had a very enjoyable visit over a great lunch. I highly recommend the sweet chili salmon - it was wonderful.

    The service was the greatest thing by far. Food was mediocre to the point where a 7 year old didn’t want to eat a cheese pizza because it tasted like reheated pizza. Calamari under seasoned and under fried. Edamame was steamed simply and salted. Bot even roasted a little to add more flavor. Potstickers were just that and nothing to great. The eel sashimi had way to much of the soy sauce where it overwhelmed and overshadowed the eels flavor. The Korean ribs had a lot of fatty chewy parts. The $20 chiClem was underwhelming doe its price and left a party member hungry. And that’s I got to see. The Mac and cheese was good for the 7 year old, but it’s Mac and cheese would have been definitely disappointed if she couldn’t even eat that. Pad Thai was to oily for my wife. All in all the food was average but not worth what we paid for it at all. The thing about it was that the birthday girl wanted and ambience like that and that’s why we went there. The set up of where we were seated kinda made it seem ratchet though as they used a circular table and square table to seat my part of 10. So the ambience was kinda killed for that reason alone. All in all we were saved bu this restaurant for a last minute reservation but could have found another place instead if they didn’t have space instead of giving us those two weird table set up. I will never recons t this place to be honest since their food to me at least seemed overcharged without it being as great of food as I would have hoped. I don’t plan to go back because of the food to be honest. I was really disappoint with the food and the table set up but the birthday girl liked it enough where she had a nice time. The service was phenomenal to say the least.

    Waiter was very responsive and checked on us often. Food was delicious and presented beautifully on the plate. Our daughter had a sushi roll, husband had the five spice ribs and I had the Chilean sea bass. Everything was so yummy. Two of us ordered small Dinner sales and they were delish too. We also ordered two desserts, the carrot cake and the brownie and both were large/shareable and very tasty. Only took stars off for how dark it was in there. Hard to read the menu. We saw another table use their flash l light on their cell phone and put it up on top Of the booth to light up the whole Table so they could read their menus.

    It was ok. I’m not in a hurry to go back. Prices seemed very high for the food we received. My husband ordered $32 shrimp pad Thai and shrimp were tiny little things and pretty scarce. For that price at this type of restaurant I would expect some larger shrimp. The sushi was mediocre at best. Flavors didn’t get me excited. The kids meals were generous, but let’s be honest, I’m not there for the kids meals.

    Service was extremely slow for it not being crowded. The food was subpar. Kona Grill is an overpriced Applebee's/Outback Steakhouse. $8 for a butter infused topping on a steak. The ribeye meatballs were definitely reheated because they were hard/hot on the outside and cool in the middle. The steaks had a lot of fat on them. The server was asked twice for salt and pepper shakers. The drinks ordered were not the drinks served but unable to get them changed out because the server would comeback every 15-20 minutes. Not a great experience whatsoever.

    We went to Kona for our anniversary! I thought the manager would have at least acknowledged our anniversary when checking us in our reservations.- nope. My husband and I have been here before and it was romantic with candlelight. I was there recently on a weekday and it was beautiful. Unfortunately, the music was SO loud that we left early because I was getting a headache. We could not even have a conversation without yelling. The waitress also had to talk loudly but night quite a scream. The music was good music but it was SO LOUD. If you want a dance party go to Kona on Saturday night. We will be going to a different place to have a nice dinner, in the future. The manager put us on the patio because he said it should be a little bit quieter but it was loud everywhere and they could do anything about that. What a disappointment!
