Food is very average at this restaurant. I have been twice and even though the menu and the food they're offering looks good, the final product just doesn't deliver. I don't know if it's the ingredients, or lack of know how on how to implement them, something is missing. Some of the dishes taste similar to something Friday's would offer. NOT KIDDING!

On a positive note, the staff is very nice and definitely wants to please. The decor is also interesting and is semi-trendy.

Will return if I'm starving.

Go elsewhere for food. Chose a chef's entree - a spicy tuna sashimi with cucumber salad. Well, the cucumber salad was about two bites and the six compact (meaning small) slices of spicy tuna was nothing to brag about. How can any restaurant serve such meager fare?

Well, my impression is this place is for the drinks - but I'm not returning for the third-rate food.

Date night went great up until kona grill.. $30 over cooked filet sat on the edge of the table for 10 min as a manager walked by it twice, sat a table away from the employee social dining table, and we received our first water refill 40 min into the meal... tisk tisk

Was excited arriving at the Kona Grill for lunch with the family. We were greeted and taken to a booth table right away. Very nice waiter came immediately to provide menus and welcome us. Many great choices for lunch so easy decisions for the family. Once food ordered we waited 30 minutes and still no food. I got up to question the manager who said its coming soon as there was a problem in the kitchen. Finally after 45 minutes our lunch arrived. Of course disappointing for us and if we were in a hurry we would have walked out. Wish i could have given a more positive report. Food was average, but not worth recommendation to others. Our waiter was excellent and not a problem. This is my first negative report, am sorry.

Came across this restaurant while shopping at Cherry Creek mall. It was a refreshing surprise. Their menu is Asian fusion. I recommend the snowfish dish that comes with ratatouille and fried rice. Although there's a full bar, but it is also family friendly. The atmosphere is also perfect for sport lovers, considering they show various matches at the same time. Definitely will return.
