Loud venue with food that was missing flavor. While the menu described the food well, and the bill was large enough that I expected well cooked food, the flavor was bland and tired. Rubber chicken, a gooey flavorless sauce, and what tasted like reconstituted potatoes. Servers did try hard though, and the cocktails were great.. their kitchen lets them down.

Very accommodating to our group of six. Fast service and food was excellent. I couldn't finish my hamburger, it was so large.. we've been.at your restaurant a good number of times and will continue. Bill. Klimback

First visit to Kona Grill left us very pleased. Friendly wait staff, cool environment and great food. We started with edamame, My husband ordered grilled salmon over bowtie Pasta, I had the pad Thai, and we shared the kona salad with macadamia crusted chicken. Everything was delicious and very generous portions

It was New Year's Eve. Made reservation on Open Table app which was easy but when I needed to change I couldn't figure how through app, so that maybe operator error. Called restaurant and changed the number of guest. We arrived early to have drink, because we were childless this evening, and was seated at our table early. The food was great for the pricing. Our friend had a Mai Tai which he didn't like - Red Robin makes them better. Lemon Garlic pasta was delicious. PanSeared Tuna was great, and my fresh Salmon with Grape/Avacado salsa was good. Had ran out of desserts by 8 pm which was a tad disturbing. We don't normally have dessert but because it was a special night was looking forward to something. Would go again and would recommend to a friend.

I would say that all of the food was just average. The waitress was very good but the fried chicken and the macadamia chicken were a bit overcooked and really just average. I want to like this place but honestly there are too many places in front of it to really justify giving it another try (today was my 3rd try). My son did say the sushi and roll he had were good but he is 15 and we'll what I saw and tasted were once again just average.

In this price point, both service and food quality should be much better. We had a 6:30 reservation and waited 20 minutes to be seated. The bar ran out of 2 different bottles of wine we tried to order. Just a bad experience all around and with entrees and sandwiches priced between $14-35, you should just get much better food

Great food and experience as always. I had the Coho wild-caught salmon and my wife had her favorite white-bean and chicken chili and we finished with our favorite butter cake dessert. It was Christmas Eve and we had the last available reservation for the evening. We were well cared for and did not feel rushed.

I miss the Sea Bass menu item from Summer '16. The current miso-sake sea bass is a poor comparison. Last summer's sea bass was literally the best that several of us had ever tasted. Please bring it back!
Service was great. Music was a little noisy, but they turned it down a bit.

Service was excellent, drinks were amazing, the atmosphere was fantastic! The only problem both me and my partner had was that the sushi was awful. I've been to several other places that offer sushi, but Kona Grill just couldn't get it right. The tuna was way too mushy, and the rice was way too soggy. But, I have gone to Kona Grill for other food and they are exceptional on everything else they make!

Kona Grill is favorite for good food, interesting choices and helpful, friendly staff. Went there before a movie, spent a fun time with appetizers, dessert and wonderful main courses.
Recommend it and will go again.

We went on a Thursday night with a reservation. It was very crowded and very loud. We waited a long time for our food to arrive. We were told twice it was because there was a big party in front of us. my husband and I both had something from the Seasonal Menu and we were disappointed.

Unfortunately some of us had ordered salads and the quality was poor, salad not fresh lettuce limp, chicken that is usually crisp was not and this was before a lot of people was around 1:00. The manger was very apologetic when he saw the live bug covered with dressing in one of the salads. Did a just the bill and gave two free desserts. The waitress was very apologetic and was so kind. Needless to say it was not her fault and we did tip her very well. Have eaten there a lot and food usually good. Sometimes the waitresses in the bar area are not very good unless men are around. There are so many awesome restaurants in this area so the car load of ladies will not be going to this one again.

The dining experience we had was wonderful.
The filet was the best tasting and I have been to many high priced restaurants, also the carrots and mushrooms were great. I would definitely recommend everyone to try it, you will go back like I will

Went to dinner to celebrate my friends birthday. I wanted to order another drink but the waiter was no where to be seen and service was pretty slow to be honest. Our waiter didn't really check up on us to see if we wanted more drinks or not, so that was kinda disappointing. Other than that the food was very good, and loved the atmosphere. :) I will still go back.

We arrived for our reservation right on time but weren't seated until 15-20 mins later. It seemed the hostess forgot about us but when we complained, we were seated right away and given a complimentary appetizer on the house. We appreciated Kona Grill taking care of us that way.

I dine and entertain at Kona Grill often. The food is consistently excellent and service is great. The seasonal specials are creative and tasty. The restaurant has an excellent location in The Village at Meridian. The patio faces the fountain and had warmers that make the dining pleasant even when the weather is cool.

I took my wife for a belated birthday dinner, the food was delicious...I had the pork tenderloin, she had the salmon. It was the first time we'd ordered something besides sushi (which is wonderful!) our server Chase was first class and catered to our every need. We will return!

I was really looking forward to the happy hour menu. I ended up extremely disappointed when I found out I couldn't order happy hour specials in the reserved dining area. I see no reason why that can't be accommodated. I had only previously dined in the bar area but made reservations since the kids were coming with us.
