Agree with several other reviews posted on the quality of food. In the last couple of years Kona has really gone downhill, they seem to thrive on their happy hour specials. This is my second very mediocre meal in the last month, I won't be back. Appetizer-$11.00 calamari, chewy, not warm when brought to table, & not completely fried. Dinner-my... More

Food was tasty and drinks were good. The big downfall was service. The waitress was very pleasant and apologetic but had to send the bill back 4 times. 1st time presented with wrong bill. 2nd time discount not applied. 3rd time she gave the bill back and said my gift card had not been accepted, but did not return gift...

Their happy hour prices are great! You can try a bunch of different sushi rolls and not break the bank. Their service is usually good and the food is good as well!

I went to Kona Grill today with a group of 8 co-workers. The happy hour lasts from 3-7 and there is an extensive menu available. There are 3 types of deals for food during happy hour. $4, $6.50, and half off. It includes most of the sushi and appetizers. I had the chicken satay, spicy tempura shrimp, and the potstickers....

My daughter wanted sushi for her birthday dinner, my son wanted steak... Kona Grill was the obvious choice! My daughter loved the Sushi, my son said the Steak was amazing, I LOVED the Pad Thai and my husband thought the Pulled Pork Sliders were great - The potsticker appetizers were tasty and we really enjoyed the saki bombs!

We have had lunch at Kona Grill Omaha many times, and were general satisfied with their food and service. This Saturday 6/18/16, we stopped in at around 11:30 for a quick lunch. That was a bad mistake. 1. the place smelt rotten fish. 2. while the chicken salad was ok, the lime grilled shrimp salad was a disgrace for them... More

Here's my positive negative, they do offer a gluten free menu However!!! Everything on the entree list is the most expensive plates on the menu. Also you have the option of sushi. It was definitely not the best sushi I've had. As for the other meals ordered the pasta seemed to be ok but the burger not as much. And... More

Hey, just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your feedback. With the Miso Sake Seabass, Filet Mignon, and New York all being on the gluten free menu, I can definitely see how it seems packed with high end options. We do offer a gluten free salmon, chicken and a number of salads that are gluten free in... More

We visit Kona grill whenever we visit Omaha. It has something for all of us: sushi, macadamia encrusted chicken strips over mashed potatoes, great seafood, killer ground brisket burgers; a great list of seasonal choices. Desserts and drinks are on point, and the service shines. The whole staff, especially the wait staff we are treated with, are exactly what I... More

Visited on a weeknight with business associates and spouses. We had the private dining room, avoiding the very noisy dining room. The service was just okay. I had a seasonal special and it was disappointing. Cold flour tortillas, and the fillings were for the most part under seasoned with the exception of a spoonful of salsa on one of the... More

This restaurant is fantastic! Such delicious food and drinks. The appetizers are delightful and the sushi is authentic, and the drink list is never-ending. Great place for an outdoor drink in the summer, or a warm meal inside in the winter. Everything about this restaurant is perfect! They have happy hour everyday with tons of items at unbeatable prices.
