This is my favorite restaurant, hands down. I love coming here to meet with an old friend, or celebrate birthdays and anniversary's with my husband. Last night, i made a reservation with open table. Point being i specifically mentioned it was our anniversary/my birthday that we were celebrating - yet they did not acknowledge that. When I've been there more than enough times to know they make a nice gesture every.single.time. As well as, i receive an email from open table saying that the front desk lady never checked us in, but it goes on. I was seated at a booth with my one yr old waiting for my husband, never was greeted or asked if if i wanted something to drink for 10+ mins. The waiter wasn't busy, i was watching him as I totally understand since i use to be a waitress for 10 years. Then when we finally were asked if we were ready to order, just about half the dang menu they were out of. (Steak, fish, seaweed salad, ect.) In the end, I'm very disappointed, my husband wasn't to thrilled either.

I frequent this location quite often . I found the last two visits to be giving of the impression that this location is going down hill. The hostess needs to smile !!!! . I got to tell you last night the server was OK little forgetful at things but she was only OK. Two times we ordered food and the server had to come back and tell us that you didn’t have the ingredients salmon and beef flanks. To separate dishes but a lot of dishes can be made out of those and it’s a weekend.. One last thing the dust on the flower decor hanging over the dinning room area is so repulsive ! clean people have commented on it.

The food was great. The service was HORRIBLE. Restaurant was not that busy but the kitchen acted like it was everyone's first day. It would have been better if the server paid more attention to us and kept us updated. He NEVER came around. The manager was busy placating every other table in the place as everyone was upset. He never stopped to see us. Too bad, I like the place overall. We will give them one more try.

Great spot for business lunch. Good food, lots of choices for everyone, service is typically very good, free wifi, comfortable setting, good noise level - can hear your conversation easily, but not eerily quiet.

We were seated right away. Restaurant is very nice and lively a little on the loud side. Waiter was attentive at first but then kinda vanished. Need more staff so the waitstaff can be more attentive. He did apologize for not being around. They didn’t have angry orchard on draft like the menu says. Food was excellent. I had sushi (Cali, shrimp tempura and Atlantic rolls) I would definitely recommend the restaurant and I will be back probably for happy hour so I can try different things!!

We returned to Kona Grill after we discovered the half-off bottles of wine on Wednesdays. Best deal in town! They have such a great menu with something for everyone. Since they do sushi, they tend to have fantastic seafood -- always nice and fresh. I loved my tuna sliders. Service is attentive but mellow. Even though the noise level is pretty up there, the high booths block a lot of the ambient noise if you're there to chat with friends.

Family outing celebrating hubby for Father's Day. 1st time for hubby and son, 1st time at this location for me. Neither son nor I are seafood lovers, but hubby is, and since it was his day. ...the great thing was both son and I found excellent dishes in spite of our aversion to seafood. My Brussels sprouts were not cooked enough for my tatsete, but hubby's glazed salmon and son's cheddar burger were cooked to perfection! Hubby tried a new sushi dish, at the recommendation of our server, Fallon, and he loved it! Our desserts were crazy huge!! All in all, a wonderful evening.

Reservation had us seated immediately. Noise level was a bit high at first and made it a little tough for conversation. But, it dissipated as the evening went on.
Server was excellent. Personable, informative, attentive without interrupting.
Sushi, miso for first courses. Was prepared correctly. Server recommended the sake flights. Pated with out food well and was a fun add to the evening.
My Ahi was cooked perfectly and had a great sauce. The sea bass that my customer got was the special and was by far the best i have ever tasted (i was sorry i only got one bite).
Price was what you would expect...no surprises.
Very enjoyable evening.

All my co-workers and I very happy with food and service.

The only comment I have is, I made reservations on line. I was called to confirm my attendance earlier in the am by the restraunt, which I did tell them we were coming. Received a note from Open Table that I did not show up. Informed Open Table we did indeed show up.

One of my favorite things to eat, anywhere, is the sweet chili glazed salmon. I have had it numerous times and is a big reason we go to Kona grill. Last night, it tasted very different than usual. My wife barely ate it because there was too much salt and pepper. I found the usual “sweet” sauce to be anything but. Now I would hesitate to order it again, which is ashamed since it was one of my favorite dishes anywhere.

Lunch menu offered good variety that pleased everyone in our group. Salad dressings were
offered on the side. Ice tea is available without sweetener. Good selection of appetizers. The waitress allowed our group to linger at the table to converse long after we had finished our meals. Staff was pleasant and courteous.

I've been eating at Kona for 12+ years starting on the west coast. The Troy, MI location was always just as good until the past couple times. Seems like food quality has lost a step and portions are getting smaller. Disappointing
