It's Date Night! with Kona Grill

 This post is sponsored by Kona Grill but the content and opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

As a stay at home mom of a three year old and a one year old, I very much look forward to date nights with my husband.  When we had the opportunity to go check out Kona Grill in Tampa, I couldn't wait!  I seriously looked at the menu five different times before we went to the restaurant so I would have an idea of what I wanted and didn't waste any of the precious time we had with a babysitter.  Even in doing so, everything sounded amazing and it was hard to choose!


While I waited for my husband to arrive from work, I grabbed myself a yummy Mango Mojito and checked out the upscale ambiance.  I'm glad I arrived when we did because this places gets busy (so you know it's good)!


Kona Grill not only has a kitchen for their mouthwatering made from scratch menu items, but a sushi bar and patio bar as well.  Not to mention over 40 unique sauces!  We chose to sit out on the patio and so glad we did.  The Florida weather was perfect!  We started with the Lobster and Shrimp roll (with a habanero cream cheese and cucumber salsa) and calamari.  The spicy aioli for the calamari was really good! 


Deciding what to have for an entree was more difficult than I thought (even after reviewing the menu beforehand)!  I was torn between the Sweet-Chili Glazed Salmon and the Chili Lime Shrimp salad, but went with the salmon.  It was one of the best salmon dishes I have ever had.  After I took my first bite, I immediately looked at my husband and said, "Whoa! You have to try this!"  I highly recommend it.  My husband went with the Kona Churrasco and although I didn't try his, because I was too busy devouring my meal, he did say that it was really good!


The perfect end to our evening was dessert!  There was no question when we looked at the dessert menu that we would choose the Fudge Brownie covered in chocolate, caramel and vanilla creme sauce and topped with ice cream.  It did not disappoint and I'm pretty sure it was gone in the matter of seconds, which is saying a lot because it could have easily fed 4-6 people!



My husband and I had such a great time at Kona Grill.  It is a great date night spot that I'm certain we will be back to visit! Be sure to sign up here for Konavore and get a free appetizer on your next visit!
