    Great place to eat in Denver. I've been eating at Kona Grill for probably 15 years and it never disappoints! Their macadamia nut Chicken dish is amazing! We went for my husbands birthday this year, and they celebrated him with a festive buttercake dessert! Sushi is always delicious too. Our server was cheerful and attentive as well.

    Arrived 10 minutes early and still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Once seated ordered drinks ordered appetizers and waited 30 minutes our actually dinner didn’t come until 40 minutes after that. Got brought 3 different bills and each time it was higher than before charged for things I didn’t order. Not sure what happened to this place but I’ll stay away for now!

    The salmon and sea bass were absolutely delicious! Wine selected was awesome - thanks to George the manager. It was noisy so had to move our chairs closer together but that didn't steal from a great overall experience.

    We love the food here but the service keeps getting worse. We cancelled our second round of drinks because they never showed up. I guess they got put on the wrong table? Oh well. The smell of the bathrooms ruins the ambience in the dining room. We used a Denver Eat Drink Pass that was $35 discount in the app but in their system it was only $30 discount. I will include a picture. The place was pretty empty- not a good sign. Maybe we will just do to go orders in the future because the food is great.

    Excellent happy hour choices. Wine, margaritas, beer, mules and many delicious food options. We had the sliders, sushi roll and chicken egg roll with avocado. So yummy. Erika was a great server and the table was warm and cozy on the enclosed patio with a heater nearby.

    Check it out, the place is like, charging an arm and a leg for tiny portions. Seriously, Outback Steakhouse has better steaks at a fraction of the cost. Ordered medium rare, got well done – thin overcooked ribeye felt like a Burger King patty. Water was tasty, props to the waiter for great service, but no manager showed up. Got a dessert for the trouble, but honestly, it's a no-go. Save your money, food's not up to par. Not worth the hype! 🙅‍♂️

    Had a great brunch with friends at Kona! Johnny provided great service and the live DJ ensured a lively atmosphere. Breakfast entrees were a bit dry/overcooked and music was too loud in bar area, but sharing that only as constructive feedback. Love Kona and will be back!!

    This was our second and last visit to Kona Grill. Service, and wait time is longer than one should have to wait. BOTH times we have dined here, my order was wrong and had to be sent back. Service was poor and slow. One should not have to ask three times for water/lemon. The food looked better than it tasted for the price. We will NOT be going back.

    The loud music made it hard to have a conversation. Some service challenges with the bar drinks and sushi taking a long time, and they couldn't get all the meals to the table at one time. Some food was ok, some was not. Disappointing.

    I had a great time and the music was amazing. Some food items were delicious like the Spam sandwich, the sweet potatoes fires, and don’t forget the avocado egg rolls!!! The downside was the chairs still had pieces of food in them. A couple of the food items were missing some flavor. Other then that it was a great experience.

    The service is great, the food was very good, but the music was so loud we could not hear one another across the booth table. It was disappointing because we hadn’t seen our friends in a while and we were looking forward to visiting and catching up. It was just way too loud for us.

    Fun vibe with live DJ who reads the crowd! Food is fresh and full of flavor. Tempura shrimp appetizer was delicious but could tone down on the sauce. Servers were outstanding and Érica was a gem! My college age sons said they would definitely consider returning for a date night.

    Ya, the noise level - not the right demographic for this one, it's clear. But the food was great and our wait staff was VERY helpful finding menu choices that met our eating limitations. Easy to find, easy parking in the Cherry Creek Lot ($3). Great breadth of menu choices - Sushi to Americana.

    Music was extremely loud and there were a lot of waitstaff on just kind of hanging out in groups all over the place so it was not a great atmopshere. Both our cocktails were very weak which was disappointing considering the cost. The food was good but on the expensive end for the quality. Overall, I would not dine there again especially considering the price.
