When considering Kona Grill as the site for a large group dinner, I agreed knowing nothing about the restaurant but speculating that it must feature polynesian cuisine. Surprise no. 1- No South Pacific fare or flavors. In this beautifully modern large space you can spot a large counter with two sushi chefs putting out a large array of sushi, sashimi... More

Thank you for dining in with us recently! Our culinary concept is American grill with award-winning sushi so I am glad that we were able to show you some of that inspiration. In the future, if you choose to enjoy the potstickers again, we would be more than happy to serve them simply steamed rather than also pan seared. I... More

Has a happy hour that seems to run later than most. OK deals on Happy Hour. Food was good. Very American feel to the place and the food...so neither bad nor great. Only open until 10pm.

My wife and I ate at the Kona Grill on January 10th. Our dinners (sea bass & tuna) were excellent but a little pricy. We had good service, good beer, and excellent wine. There was plenty of free parking nearby and a great location. We would definitely return and recommend the Kona Grill to others.

Great service and excellent sushi. The lettuce and chicken wraps are also very taste and a little different since you wrap them yourself.

We enjoyed the outside Veranda - it was a pleasant spot on the pond in front of the restarting. Instead of ordering full meals, we enjoyed various happy hour appetizers. I would do that again!

I had such high hopes for this place. All day happy hour is what attracted me to try it...but I feel duped. Drinks were the only thing good about my visit. Went with 4 friends & one friend ordered chicken Caesar salad & the chicken was undercooked. Took the manager over 15 minutes to come to our table & address... More

First it took me 20 minutes to park at this location because the lot was so full I had to park in the PwC parking garage. Thankfully only about a 5 minute walk but most parking was filled up by valet. I got there hoping to sit on the patio and then was told first come first serve. It was... More

This was our first visit (possibly last) to Kona Grill. The restaurant is located in a trendy and attractive corporate/retail plaza, so we figured it would be a nice place to have dinner. Our experience took a sharp downward turn when we discovered that the parking was practically nonexistent - unless of course you would like to pay for valet.... More

Went here for my moms bday lunch on a Saturday. It wasn't packed, and they had the Lightning game on at the bar. The clam chowder was delicious! Pics below are of the avocado chicken club, pad Thai, jumbalaya, and macadamia nut chicken. Everything was full of flavor and interesting spices - you will certainly remember the unique tastes.
