The place has an exciting modern interior and that's about all it has going for it. Well, may be also great happy hour specials too. We came here for an early dinner and their menu is a "jack of all trades, master of none", starting from sushi and ending with salads and pizzas. I mistakenly thought that the word "grill"... More

Feb. 20, 2016 9 pm. Normally when I am visiting my daughter or going out with my wife, we go to Elway's. But tonight I was alone and wanted to try something different. So I went to Kona Grill that was just around the corner. Sat down and ordered some sushi. Pretty good. Then I ordered the Hawaiian ribeye. I... More

There were 7 of us for dinner and we all ate different Sushi rolls. Everyone said the food was great. The only disappointment were the drinks. 4 of us had to send different drinks back for either not being what they ordered or were so weak that they tasted like water. Overall, they corrected the problem and we all had... More

I was a Kona Grill fan. I tried to go in every city where they had a restaurant. I have been to the Denver, Cherry Creek Mall location a couple times. Tonight three of us tried to dine there. The hostess would not even acknowledge we were standing there. After a few minutes I finally asked her if we could... More

Went here with a group of friends for a Sunday brunch. The wait, at 1pm, was over an hour, so we were excited to see what the new remodel would bring. Our server was excellent, despite the fully-booked restaurant. We were a group of 8 and we all ordered something different, from pasta to sandwiches to flat bread. All of... More

You know a place is nice when you are taking pictures of the bathroom to remember for your own decorating purposes! The restaurant is beautiful! We only had the California Rolls, but they were delicious and the service was great!

We wanted a nice dinner but being in a Mall usually means fast food. Try the Kona Grill, wonderful menu - everything from burgers and salads to great sushi. Really cool atmosphere - we had dinner during the Holidays and the wait was almost an hour bur you can shop and come back. My chili lime shrimp salad was delicious... More

Very well prepared food. I asked for one of their downtown restaurant specialties and they were gracious to prepare it even if it wasn't on the menu. My only problem was that they prepared a smoked drink while I was sitting at the bar and I have lung problems. They should have asked if smoke would bother anyone before continuing... More

Stopped at Kona while shopping... Packed, which is good for them. Very difficult to get a seat. Service was pretty slow, but of course they were packed. She did the best she could to get back to us quick. My wife had a Moscow mule, and it was pretty much ginger and ice! I had a beer and appetizers. Again... More

At early on a Saturday night and was able to be seated right away at Sushi Bar. Remodeled and new menu. Amazing variety. We shared a shrimp tempura roll and each had salads with seafood. Right in Cherry Creek Mall so a great stop if shopping as we were.
