I have always enjoyed Kona. The atmosphere is always fun and it is located in the heart of the Plaza. The food is great lots of different choices but for the most part the food has a seafood/sushi feel. I would absouletly recommend the Sea Bass. It is amazing and melts in your mouth. You also can't go wrong with sushi for an appetizer. This would be a great place to go for a happy hour with friends or a romantic dinner.

Lunch at the Kona Grill was an excellent choice - the three of us chose very different items. One person had the chicken pad thai - it was very good and enough for two! She took half with her, then added additional noodles to it and was able to feed two for dinner the next evening. My husband chose the pulled pork sliders with sweet potato fries - he said his meal was was excellent. My Kona chopped salad featured macadamia nut chicken, with lots of bacon, avocado along with white cheddar, tomatoes and a Dijon honey dressing. It was delicious and I'd order it again. Service was very good and we would choose Kona Grill again when we return to Kansas City.

I've been here several times and it is an enjoyable experience each time. It is a little pricey, but what sushi place isn't?
