The food was good the live music was a pleasant surprise and good, Impressed with the room of the dance floor and the open feel of the Tonga Room.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect way to start a SF weekendIf you don't love the Tonga Room, something must be wrong. We arrived at 6:30 to the delightfully decorated Tiki Bar and quickly began enjoying the dumplings, spring rolls, and Tiki Bar drinks. The Singapore Sling deserves your attention. And the wait staff made sure we were never in need. And then the band started to play. In addition to playing songs fit for the setting, we couldn't stop giggling once the boat the band plays in started moving.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. Its beenWe had a great time.

Enjoy!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThe ambiance is amazing! This place is super cool, I can't believe I had lived here so long and never been. The service was pretty good, the food was alright, not amazing but you don't really care when you realize what a cool place it is. My only complaint is the hostess. I called to check up on my reservation and she was pretty rude. Other than that, definitely a place not to miss.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimerI took my sister and a few friends for my sister's bachelorette dinner and we absolutely LOVED the Tonga Room! I would most definitely recommend it to friends and family. I will also definitely be returning for another visit! The staff was very friendly and the band was great! We all had a very good experience!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service, environmentGreat food, service, environment ad entertainment. Reasonably priced and open late.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTonga virginAlways wanted to try out this San Fran gem, we finally did! Don't expect high level cuisine and you won't be disappointed, but you shouldn't head here for the food. The scene and the cocktails are the draw and the Tonga delivers in spades. Drinks average about $12 each but I'm pretty sure there's several drinks in each ceramic coconut or tiki god mug.
Reservations should be considered mandatory, if you are just there for drink there is no cover as long as you don't sit down. Any seating, including dinner will incur. $7 charge pp in your party. Service felt hurried and definitely geared to flip tables.
The band this night was rocking it out, I wish I could remember their name they were awesome.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find!Wonderful atmosphere! Great food and entertainment.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome band!Island Groove was fantastic, as usual! Great songs to dance to. I always have a great time when I go there with my friends.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!The Tonga Room was exactly what I thought it would be. Great Asian Pacific themed
Restaurant and food. The band was great not too loud or overpowering. Drinks were
amazing. The food was also very good. The food and drinks were a little pricey but
were well in line for where the restaurant is located. This restaurant will definitely be on
my list for a return visit.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur thirtieeth wedding anniversary.My Wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and decided we would check out the Tonga Room. The food was good, the drinks were great and the band was excellent. Our server was a great help and knew when to come in to see how we were doing. We will be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe returned after many yearsWe returned after many years and we pleasantly surprised by the
food and service. You could talk even while the music way playing -
and the band was great.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time!We had such a great time at the Tonga Room. Two people in our group of four had not been there in years. They were really pleased. The food, service, and music were just terrific. It was the perfect, special place for a surprise birthday party. We plan to go back, and all four of us would definitely recommend it.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYou know what you're gettingYou know what you're getting with this place. The food is pretty good, but the drinks are amazing and the ambiance is worth every penny. A must-do for SF locals. We had a blast!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMClassical!Every now and then a very nice place.
Of course a bit touristy, but food is good, cocktails are outstanding, and the service was perfect!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTops in Service AlwaysAside from the fact that the Tonga Room has great ambiance and historical at that as a native San Franciscan born and raised here there is no better place to enjoy a wonderful evening. music is always great and a lot of fun listening or dancing. Have eaten and enjoyed every entertainment venue in the city during the last 30 years and still look forward to coming to the Tonga Room and bringing along friends that are looking for a special San Francisco experience.
The Tonga room is supremely unique!
Aside from great food and music the thing that makes the Tonga Room stand out is the STAFF! As someone that enjoys every 4 and 5 star restaurant in the city the staff here at the Tonga Room stands head and shoulder above the rest! Thank you!!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe experience was wonderfulThe experience was wonderful and the waiter was wonderful too!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique Tiki experience!Best Tiki dining and bar experience anywhere. We were celebrating my wife's birthday in San Francisco, and this place is one of the reasons we booked the trip. The floating bandstand is unique and we enjoyed everything, especially the reasonable prices and decor.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTimeless! The Tonga Room shouldTimeless! The Tonga Room should be a national historic landmark!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMall we expectedLots of fun, the theme is consistent, the music good, and the dance floor large. Not a spot for a quiet conversation, just great place to party.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is not great andThe food is not great and the service can be a little slow. However, the decor, thunderstorms, moving band boat and awesome cocktails more than make up for anything of the Tonga Room's failing. We always have an awesome time when we come to the Tonga Room. If you make a reservation for dinner, you will get to sit next to the lagoon and won't have to worry about the long wait times in line or the cover charge.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTonga Room is Fun!I loved visiting the Tonga Room! A good friend recommended it to me and she was right - it is a really fun spot! How can you go wrong with tiki drinks and a band floating on a tiny boat in a pool in the middle of the room?!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fun, good food. An excellentGreat fun, good food. An excellent choice for a special occasion.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent atmosphere. TheExcellent atmosphere. The server was great. Would deffinitely would recommend the Tonga Room to my friends.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best part of the experienceThe best part of the experience is dining while the band is playing. We were there for my daughters 16th birthday. We ate dinner and danced with our kids. We had a great time. The place was packed when we arrived so service was a bit slow. The restaurant staff kept carrying boxes (kitchen /bar supplies) and a couple of folding tables back and forth to the kitchen. As a customer, I didn't like that. Overall, I've always enjoyed visiting the Tonga Room. It's very expensive but a fun experience .4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTonga Room & Hurricane BarTonga Room & Hurricane Bar is 'great for kids' for its selection of 'mocktails', but is also fun for adults with extensive tropical cocktail menu, live band, and dancing (dining experience was very quiet until band started up later in the evening). Atmosphere is really fun. Food is quite good, but not the same caliber as other more 'foodie'-centric spots in the city. This is still an institution that I'd recommend all SF townies experience at least once, or, a great place for folks visiting from elsewhere.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Tonga Room is a San FranciscoThe Tonga Room is a San Francisco classic! We would visit more often if it were open for brunch.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI saw this place on an AnthonyI saw this place on an Anthony Bourdain show. Its a rediculious place! We just had a couple appetizers (a good recommendation Nya local who warned us the food is about the level of Applebee's). The tiki drinks are so sugary your teeth will hurt! I laughed hysterically when the band came floating out on a boat in the pool! This place is certainly an experience!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was great! heOur server was great! he was on top of us all the time!!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWent specifically for theWent specifically for the tiki atmosphere. We were delighted with the decor and ambiance. The food was good, service was very good.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's topsI had a friend show me the famous tonga room back in the mid 90's and I continue to bring all my out of town friends and clients here. It's fun, and you ca dress up in vintage clothes and or show up in casual attire. Great for a couple and perfect for the hard to please groups. I'm in the tattoo industry and trying to find a place to bring fellow artist from the rest of America or from Europe and Asia can be like herding cats. This place will please them all. It's tops!!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYUM!My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. Food was amazing. I had the hot pot and my husband had the smoked salmon. Our server was new but he did a good job.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, definatelyGreat ambiance, definately make a reservation. Possbily the best waiter we have ever had!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I had dinnerMy friends and I had dinner here to celebrate my 30th birthday, and it was A LOT of fun. I would have given the Tonga Room 5 stars if the food was better- but it was just okay. I found the food options to be limited in general. But you can't beat the atmosphere, the fun cocktail menu, the great service, and the live entertainment. The band sang me a song for my birthday, they brought me a free dessert, and they sat us (on our request) right next to the lagoon. Great time, highly recommend it.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMvacation getaway close to homeYummy food. Good service. Fun dancing. What a great place to escape to for a vacation feel close to home. Looking forward to going back. Maybe my next visit I will order the in the pineapple. :)3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrificThe Tonga Room is always works for our special occasions!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was fantastic.
