One of the best salmon dishes I've ever had, with a very tasty and tangy sauce. We had three different sushi rolls, two were average and one (I believe the spider roll) was excellent. The dinning room during happy hour and right next to the bar area which was full, was quite noisy making it difficult to have a normal... More

This was my first trip to the Kona Grill. Modern , clean setting. Attentive staff. I had Pad Thai with chicken & shrimp , which was very nice. Extensive sushi menu, that I hear is good , but I wasn't in the mood for that on my visit. The menu had a wide range of selections , so there should... More

The recently renovated space is beautiful. There has been some staff turnover--but service remains good. Good happy hours with $2 off glasses of wine. Time very. Nice selection of small plates. The apple and fig flat bread, lettuce wraps, edamame and sushi rolls are all good. Lovey patio-- when the weather cooperates. Nice big bar area.

The place has an exciting modern interior and that's about all it has going for it. Well, may be also great happy hour specials too. We came here for an early dinner and their menu is a "jack of all trades, master of none", starting from sushi and ending with salads and pizzas. I mistakenly thought that the word "grill"... More

Feb. 20, 2016 9 pm. Normally when I am visiting my daughter or going out with my wife, we go to Elway's. But tonight I was alone and wanted to try something different. So I went to Kona Grill that was just around the corner. Sat down and ordered some sushi. Pretty good. Then I ordered the Hawaiian ribeye. I... More

There were 7 of us for dinner and we all ate different Sushi rolls. Everyone said the food was great. The only disappointment were the drinks. 4 of us had to send different drinks back for either not being what they ordered or were so weak that they tasted like water. Overall, they corrected the problem and we all had... More

I was a Kona Grill fan. I tried to go in every city where they had a restaurant. I have been to the Denver, Cherry Creek Mall location a couple times. Tonight three of us tried to dine there. The hostess would not even acknowledge we were standing there. After a few minutes I finally asked her if we could... More

Went here with a group of friends for a Sunday brunch. The wait, at 1pm, was over an hour, so we were excited to see what the new remodel would bring. Our server was excellent, despite the fully-booked restaurant. We were a group of 8 and we all ordered something different, from pasta to sandwiches to flat bread. All of... More

You know a place is nice when you are taking pictures of the bathroom to remember for your own decorating purposes! The restaurant is beautiful! We only had the California Rolls, but they were delicious and the service was great!
