There were plenty of other restaurants in the area to choose from and I'm sure glad we chose Kona Grill. First off, our server, Chloe was PHENOMENAL!!!!!!! She was super cool and friendly, knowledgeable about menu items and wines, made great suggestions and was overall extremely personable. The food was excellence.

Absolutely great food! Service was very good and the atmosphere was lively with a very eclectic crowd. The food presentation was beautiful while prices were very appropriate. Easily accessible from the interstate, Steinbrenner and Raymond James stadiums and Tampa International. The outside deck was lovely with water fountains flowing in the lake. Our server was both attentive and prompt, allowing... More

I had lunch here with one other person. We were seated immediately. The host explained a few things and our server arrived promptly. Our server was very attentive and anticipated our needs like condiments, refills, etc. My friend had a caesar salad and I had the pulled pork sliders, which had braised kalua pork, BBQ sauce, asian slaw, chipotle mayo,...

This is an Asian fusion kind of place with a very nice sushi menu. The appetizers had a decidedly Asian flair with lettuce wraps and potstickers listed amongst the choices. The standard menu had chicken, pork, fresh fish, steaks, and some Asian themed entrees.

I had their Avocado Chicken Club Sandwich. It was delicious. We ate outside because the place was packed and there was an hour wait for the tables inside. We went at 7 PM. It turned out to be a nice evening though. Went in March, wasn't cold out. The service was very good even though they were extremely busy. Very... More

Food was very good. The dining room was quieter and more comfortable than the bar. Food choices many items from burgers,salads, and Thai food. I would certainly go back. Parking was easy and location very convenient to the Tampa Airport.

Stopped in with a friend for a late lunch..plenty of seats to choose from. Kona has the best coconut shrimp roll that I can't get enough of..I only wish you got seven pieces instead of five.
