Sadly, we got sick as dogs later that night. Our waitress was told that we were celiac (me and my son) and assured us that our choices (clearly marked on menu) were safe for us. Unfortunately, we were notified after we ordered that the eel roll (marked as gf) actually had gluten - that should have been our red flag! Fortunately we didn't eat the eel, but there was something in our final food that either contained gluten or got contaminated. Not sure what got us in the end, but will not go back.

When making the reservation for our dinner, the hostess asked if anyone had dietary restrictions. I appreciated them noting that. When arrived, the hosted reminded us to let the waitress know we needed gluten free. Menu was clearly marked with gluten free options. Waitress confirmed what my son was ordering would be gluten free. Manager brought food to him and reassured us it was cooked with no gluten. Was very happy with Kona Grill and the service.

They have a gluten free menu. Seem to take all precautions necessary to avoid cross contamination. I feel safe eating here with celiac. (And their squash is yummy). They seem to struggle getting steak prepared appropriately on the first try but that ok. Still yummy

The gluten free sushi was absolutely tasteless. My husband is not gluten free and ate Cuban sandwich, which he says is tasty... But after eating there we both didn't feel well.

Went here on mother's day. They had a special menu that day and provided zero.. I mean zero options for GF. I starved while everyone else enjoyed mothers day. I don't believe their normal menu even remotely friendly either.

Server was very accommodating for my 8 year old daughter who is celiac. She enjoyed her meal, didn’t get sick. She ordered a kids meal with the grilled chicken, white rice and green beans.

If you are eating gluten free there is only 6 food items on the large menu that are safe. Add in lactose intolerance and there is two. One is the chopped salad which was great but nothing fancy. Or traditional ( not rolled) sushi. Both were good just wouldn't recommend if you want more choices.

Though somewhat knowledgeable about allergies, there are extremely limited gluten free options. They can make some sushi rolls gf and about 2 or 3 things off the regular menu gf. Fun vibe, but super over priced and hardly anything safe to eat.

If you go to Kona Grill, be sure you know that they are serving from their regular menu. We went on Christmas Eve, after calling the day before and asking about gluten-free selections, and were surprised with a special “Christmas menu“ when we arrived. There were only two gluten-free items on the Christmas menu, edamame, from the appetizer list and a chef salad. There was nothing else, without a big change, like a burger w/o a bun and fries, that could be done. Even after mentioning that we called ahead to make sure of the GF offerings, they wouldn’t deviate from their menu for the day. Really a disappointment.
