Wonderful place for good eats! The ambiance is great and the sushi is great. Get there for happy hour and enjoy the menu at half the price:-)

After a long day at the Convention Center, this is a convenient place for a cocktail . Drinks are well made and the staff isattentive. Actually surprisingly good for a hotel facility.

Had a wonderful experience! Shared an order of Potstickers, and the sauce was perfect. Ordered Coconut Shrimp Rolls and Shrimp/Lobster Rolls. Both were delicious. It was "Wine Down Wednesday" so all bottles of wine were 1/2 price. Our server did a nice job--just needs a little more self-confidence! Highly recommend you stop in when you are in Baltimore.

We went to Kona in early evening for drinks and appetizers. It was crowded for a weekday night. After being seated at a booth by the hostess, our waitress came up and told us we would have to move because the booth was "reserved" for someone. She was snippy and didn't offer another seating solution. Really? ????Needless to say we... More

KONA GRILL - Stopped here for lunch on a rainy Baltimore day when it was uncomfortable to look for something further from the Convention Center. The Kona Grill looked like a chain restaurant, and I have no idea if it is or isn't. The decor could be called "strip mall suburban," and seems like it should be located in something... More

Grabbed drinks in the evening and was surprised to find an evening Happy Hour. Since they were in the process of closing up, I didn't stay very long. Ordered the sake bomb, along with with a spicy tuna and crab crunch roll, along with their bulgogi tacos. I liked the tacos the best,even though it was a little messy.

I wish we had read these reviews before going here. The service was slow and absolutely terrible. Probably the worst service I have had in many, many years. Finally had to seek help from hostess who was of no help and eventually sought out the waiter and asked him to pay attention to our table. Took forever to get water,... More

A bit of disappointment... Our hotel concierge recommended this place for sushi and dinner on Sunday. We were not seated but instead directed to go to patio area "and find a table". All tables in that area were occupied or busy. We found a high table near the bar. Everything was slow. Our waiter asked us TWICE if we wanted... More

My family lives in Scottsdale so I'm very familiar with and have eaten at Kona Grill several times across several locations. We were in Baltimore for a show at the convention. They were pretty busy, so I'll give them that, but the service was so dreadfully slow that it became a running joke with our party. I think it took... More

Read a lot of good reviews about this place which was also recommended by our concierge. The restaurant has a good ambience with the bar facing the street. The service was exceptionally slow. They didn't have tuna, one of the entrees - of all things to be expected of a sushi restaurant? I chose garlic shrimp penne instead and house... More
