Great experience. Food was fantastic and the drinks were strong! Great variety of cocktails
The food was really good. I enjoyed the chicken Pad Thai w Shrimp. Delish. I went at HH and the price were reasonable. The drinks were just ok tho. For me, they need more of a selection during HH.
Bibb lettuce for Lettuce Wraps was very flimsy/messy. Chicken Satay was kinda tough. Entrees were served way too early; not enough time to complete appetizers (we did ask our server to make sure this didn't happen). Fries were a bit cold. Caterpillar Roll was very good. Inari sushi was pretty small for the price.
Very friendly staff. The restaurant was very well decorated and clean.
Service and food offerings were lacking. My first time a few weeks ago the waiter was most helpful in suggesting Gluten Free options, I was pleased. I understand Gluten Free is somewhat difficult and costly. I expected the help staff to know more about what they “sell”.
This is a “go to” place for our group when we have a meeting locally. The service was excellent, attentive and friendly and knowledgeable. The food was also very good - a variety of sushi rolls and appetizers.
We had a great night celebrating our mother’s 87th birthday. The menu had something for everyone and we all had a great time. Service was excellent. They took care of our huge crowd really well. Everything I ate was very good.
Restaurant gave my reservation away to another party. I’m still confused on how you don’t check in the right person “ They said they had a party of 12 I thought it was you” in a poor excuse. My guests were sat on the side of the restaurant instead of in the middle with the nice wooden tables. The surprise party was ruined I won’t go into detail about that.
Our server was good and I take into consideration it was about 15 of us, but the restaurant should implement a seating order to follow. Our orders were coming given to the wrong people and the food was more or less auctioned off for expample. (Serves walks to table “who ordered the calamari?”)
I heard great things about this place from various people, but I had a real poor experience, the surprise party was ruined, we should of gone somewhere else.
Great food, great ambiance and great service. We really enjoyed our first time at this restaurant.
Dinner with friends/family. First time there and really enjoyed the food, portions were great size too!
Your coffee was lukewarm but since I drink for effect, it was fine. Overall, the service was great and the staff was fabulous.
We made a 1030 reservation for dinner, got there at 1015 and the doors were all locked! It was already closed!
Food was very salty specifically the skirt steak and mashed potatoes and calamari overbreaded and cold. Service was friendly with a smile.
I really enjoyed the food. The restaurant itself is usually empty and it was Sunday night. It's a shame since there is good food and ambiance. I wish there were more gluten free options and more descriptive ingredients on the menu.
Our server was so sweet and kind! Coming back soon
Had a very nice evening. It was not busy for a Friday evening, but the food and service were very good. Sushi, padthai and salad were very good. Would go back.
Always a good experience. Food excellent.
The food at Kona Grill is excellent! Love the different choices.
The sea bass was cooked to perfection! The best fish I have ever eaten - literally melts in your mouth. The macadamia chicken was also great. And the carrot cake made from scratch is delicious but also massive (enough for a group to share).
Kona Grill has big sliding windows that provide tons of natural air. Huge fish tanks inside. Nice food, nice service, casual.
We were unimpressed by the service or the quality of the food. Restaurant needs to train it's staff to better manage orders. Each item was delivered separately and the one item that was delivered first was a wrong order which then took almost 25 minutes to get right...it was a sushi roll. Management did not charge for the item which we appreciate but overall the food was not that great. We have had better experiences at Kona Grill so I think this location just needs time to improve the service level.
Food was decent but service was incredibly slow. Restaurant was not busy
Have eaten @ Kona before but did not have a pleasant experience this time. We had a late reservation @ 10PM arrived 5 mins. Early and we’re told at arrival it was “last call” even though restaurant hours are to 11PM. Felt rushed.
Horrible overall experience. I have visited Kona Grill in Baltimore and had a great experience and was looking forward to dining locally.
The server was rude, lazy and absent the entire time. We had to go to the bar to request salt, pepper and mustard. Our drinks were never refilled. Other tables around us sat without service for over 30 minutes. The restaurant was not busy as this was during lunch.
I will never return to this location given this experience.
Birthday with party of 10
There was a long wait and there were few customers. I'm not sure how they can actually fill the place and serve food in a reasonable amount of time.
Was there to celebrate my 30th birthday with my family and Mother’s Day. We told them it was a special occasion, but they didn’t acknowledge it as I thought they would. Other than that, the experience was good.
We enjoyed Mother's Day lunch. My wife loves the Asian food options; the poke bowl & sushi. We had a great lunch with excellent food and good service!
Always good. I go to the one in Baltimore also. Bartender was friendly.
I’ve dined here several times and it has always been good. Very good sushi and above average entrees. Tonight I had caterpillar sushi roll (eel),salmon roll and sea bass. All were excellent. Wide selection of wines and beers are available. Outstanding service, attentive but not overbearing.
2 of the meals came out cooked/prepared wrong. We had to send them back to the kitchen. Each of the three people in our group ate their meals separately. I was the third person to get mine and by that time was just ready to leave. Barely ate my food
Nothing but nice things to say about this place. It is in a mall but parking and entry were easy. It’s quite spacious and the staff was very attentive. We had sushi followed by sliders and all were very good. We finished up with carrot cake which was huge. There were four of us and we couldn’t finish it. Would definitely go back.
Have enjoyed every visit here and so have our guests
Keep up the great work
Great chicken chili and Cuban sandwich
Hi we had gone to Kona grill in Baltimore- love the pretzels and cheese dip.(And the chicken)At Fairfax we tried the Macadamia nut chicken and it was pretty dry and tough. My husband loved the hamburger though- so maybe just come for apps and burgers. We should have ordered the swordfish.
I made reservations for Valentine’s Day with friends. We were a bit late on arrival which they were very kind about, come to find out the place wasn’t busy at all. Our server was very nice & accommodating as we wanted a booth & allowed/helped us move. Our server was very shy but nice, however, when receiving our food, our food was not hot (fresh). We could see the service line from where we were sitting & it was not busy. The restaurant including the bar must’ve been 1/4-1/3 occupied if that. So we didn’t understand why are food was basically cold. One of our sushi rolls was also falling apart. I honestly wouldn’t eat her again, not because it was terrible because it wasn’t horrible it just wasn’t up to par or anything to rave about as it currently has 4 stars.
We enjoyed our meal and the service was very good. We'll be back.
Great food, versatile menu, great service. Great for a date night, bottles of wine we’re half off!
Just tried the chicken chili and it was delicious. Worth a visit
Our waiter Ethan provided us with a great service experience including insight on the available dishes. The chili-glazed salmon was delicious and the jambalaya was pleasantly spicy but a very heavy entree. I was sad to learn that my favorite appetizer (the three taco combo with pork, black cod and shrimp that I frequently ordered as an entree) has been removed from the dining room menu. I will need to come back soon so that I can find a new favorite from the appetizer menu where the portion size is a bit more manageable than the entrees.
