Kona Grill - Boise Ratings and Reviews

Food was over cooked, including appetizers. The sea bass, besides being overlooked had a strong ammonia flavor indicating it was spoiled. Was my wife's birthday and didn't want to spoil her evening, otherwise I would have complained. Service was good, but not coming back for a while.

Our steamed rice was undercooked. Our fried rice was overcooked - there were clumps of dried out rice that looked like it was sitting in the bottom of the pan. I ordered the miso sea bass and my portion was very small. I had ordered it before and this time it was a huge disappointment. Food was very greasy too.

This is the third time going to Kona Grill. First time was awesome, somewhat less the next 2 times! The place is visually appealing. The wait staff tries but seems overwhelmed. Forgot our appetizer, which finally came with the main courses! Hubbies fish was wonderful, but everyone else's was just ok!!! Don't know if i will go back again!?

My wife and I were celebrating our birthdays and had a gift certificate to Kona Grill. Our waiter was friendly and attentive to our needs. He was perhaps the part of our experience. We were seated at a table next to to the food preparation area which had a low glass partition between us and the noise of pans and dishes in the kitchen. I wear hearing aids so the back ground noise made conversation very difficult. I did not hear our waiter say that there would be a complimentary dessert and ordered a dessert separately. He questioned my order according to my wife but I did not understand therefore we ended up with 2 desserts, which we ate but certainly did not need. The menus were not clear. I ordered one of the flat bread offerings which when I received it looked more like a appetizer than a main course meal. Comparing the menu my wife had with the one I had she had a number of items on her menu that were not on mine. Our reservation was at 4:45 because we wanted to be plenty early to beat the Friday night rush. There were plenty of open seats throughout the restaurant. I would have expected to have been seated in a quieter section, perhaps next to a window. The noisy kitchen area could be saved then for late reservations during crowded times.

Fantastic as usual. Great table. Exceptionally good food. Had the Voodoo roll and pot stickers. Generous portion, great ingredients, and served well. Great waiter and shadow in training. Will keep going back. Our umpteenth visit.

The food was just okay, nothing special. I thought the prices were very high for what we got. I ordered two cocktails. The first had very, very little alcohol and did not taste very good at all. The second was a bit better but not something I would come back for. My husband had sushi and said it was alright. I ordered the spinach artichoke pit which was kind of runny without much taste. I also had the margarita flatbread which tasted like it should have but it still was nothing to remember.

The restaurant itself was nice and the service was excellent. I was not impressed with the food or the food selection at all. I had the chicken and broccoli stir fry and found it spicy and off putting. Nothing else on the menu even remotely interested me. It'd be nice if there was some normal American food on the menu. Seems like they tried to be too exotic with everything. For the price, I won't go here again.

We were celebrating 2 birthdays our waiter said he would bring 2 birthday deserts
He brought them and they were very good
My complaint is they were supposed to be free, complimentary we were charged 15.50 for both then only a$10.00 credit
Not exactly a complimentary birthday desert 😐

Overall satisfied. Made reservation online they called the day before to confirm and there was no issues when we got there the day of. There was a slight delay on our food but it's understandable since they were busy Saturday evening. Great food and great environment.

We had reservation but when we got there our table was next to the kitchen so it was kitchen noise plus the noise of the customers which made it impossible to visit. There was way too much bacon in the zucchini and corn causing it to taste too salty. The salmon was ok but I've had better. Very pricey for what was served. The sushi and the pasta dish were delicious.

We had reservations at 6:30pm on a Saturday for 10. One in our party didn't arrive and another was a baby, so there were 8 dinners to be served. Seated at 6:40. Drinks and appetizer were ordered, waiter said the bar was behind. Drinks arrived half an hour later. Ordered dinner, some of us ordered sushi, waiter said the sushi bar was behind. After waiting for another half hour, the waiter said the kitchen was behind. When the food arrived, the $30 steak was luke warm, the macadamia nut chicken in the salad was fried until burnt. They took the salad away to make another one, half an hour later, I said to cancel it, everyone was done and I didn't want to eat by myself. They brought out the salad in to-go containers, anyway.
The managers apologized, gave us $20 in gift cards and credited our check for $63. Got home and noticed they charged us twice for the salad...
This is the third and last time we will return to this restaurant. On previous occasions, the service was ALWAYS slow.

We had a great dinner, celebrating a wedding anniversary. The staff was very attentive, but not irritating. Our server was helpful with food and wine selections, helping us decide on a great meal. Dessert was fantastic as well. A great experience for us!

This was a special birthday party. Eva did a tremendous job helping set up our table. Thank you.
Our server mistook my date for a "guy" as he saw her from behind with her short haircut, AWKWARD! Otherwise it was a good experience.

The salmon was delicious, but the sushi tasted strange to my two guests. The place was very loud--hard to hear the conversation at our table. It took a long time for our initial drink orders to arrive, but the rest of the service was prompt.

After being told that we could sit in the bar OR the dining room---it didn't matter---then we were told that we could not get the half price appetizer specials b ecause of our seating location. We had arrived early to pick a seat in the what I guess is the "appetizer area" and the hostess said either way we were "good".
The manager literallythrew two free appetizer cards at us fifteen minutes later after we were seated. nice gesture but definitely not heartfelt and didn't even make eye contact.
We waited 45 minutes for our food---salads and sushi. Three of our party of 8 didn't even eat their food it was so bad.
Will not return.

I had made reservations for 12, our out of town guests got caught in traffic and were a little late, but they held our table for us. My husband is handicapped and in a wheel chair, they kindly held the door and let us park the chair out of the way. Cody was our very friendly waitress, and two others came by to ask how everything was. I would recommend Kona Grill to anyone.

Food wasn't cooked to order, and when I got a new plate the burger had no flavor and was missing the bacon that I paid extra for. The french fries were more like bits and pieces rather than full size fries. I won't be eating here again.

Server got many things wrong with my husband's order. Even managed to mess up his water (put tap water in this cup of soda water when he went to refill it). Served an entirely different dish than what was ordered and didn't take it off the price of our tab.

Every single time I've been there with more than 5 people the delay on when we get the food and when we are checked on to refill drinks has been ridiculous...
We had 10 people and there was hardly anybody in the restaurant at that time. A group of 4 people sat down and ordered a good 15 minutes after we had placed our order and they received their food about 20 BEFORE we did...
This isn't the first time this has happened...
