This was my first time at the place. We were in a group. Two of us, ordered Churrasco Steak with Chimichurri, but it was very salty. Others food was okay – nothing exciting. We ordered two deserts both were good. The carrot cake is huge, and I think it will serve 3-4 people.

I was here on a tuesday evening. The weather was great, the windows along the tables were opened. The atmosphere was very nice- a smell of spring. I decided to taste a combination of sushi rolls and a salat. Both was very delecious and the presentation on the plate was excellent. My colleague had a kind of cracker bread with... More

I like their sushi collection and edamame. They have good drink collection to go with it as well. I recommend any day with family or business lunch or dinner.

Wrote a review a couple of month's ago an said the lobster mac & cheese was a little bland and service was slightly slow. Have been back twice since then and went with the sushi both times. I now have to fess up that I was wrong. Sushi was great if not always traditional. I particularly like the coconut shrimp... More

I'm not sure how I should review my meal. I ordered the Chili Lime Shrimp Salad. It comes with greens, shrimp, cucumbers, red onions, corn, tomatoes, avocados, mushrooms, wonton strips, and a honey lime dressing. Sounds good, right? Well, I don't know if my taste buds were out of whack or what. It tasted bitter to me. I couldn't identify... More

It was slow! We sat for an hour before we even got our order taken. The waitress did work hard keeping everyone's drink full. The manager came in and checked on us twice but it took us three hours to finish the meal. The food was great and the staff was friendly. The time investment was a little too much!

Took out-of-town family for sushi. Our server did an excellent job of explaining Kona's sushi menu to family members new to sushi. The food was flavorful. Spicy Crab and Bama rolls are delicious!

We live a mile away from Kona, so we stop in often. The bar has great atmosphere and great service. The menu has recently changed for the better. Great Happy Hour deals. Ask for Josh. He is a fantastic waiter
