Katie provided some of the best service I’ve ever experienced!! What a value to your team!! I wish I could buy a dress like hers, too. On your website you really only have stuff for men, the T-shirts, or general stuff like mugs. Why not a featured tiki dress of the month catered towards the women. Just a suggestion. The biggest thing that caused me to give a four star review versus a five, was that I ordered one of the more expensive drinks to share which was supposed to come with black ice aka fog, warranting the higher price. However, the fog only lasted for mere seconds, not even a full minute, which was very disappointing and the tin can it came in was a little beat up and nothing impressive to look at. Truly the reason why I enjoy tiki bars is for the mugs and fun presentation so to order something more expensive and have the presentation fall short of fun and entertaining was a little disappointing. Overall pretty fun environment and the taste of the drinks was great! I’m looking forward to my next visit. More

Nice working lunch option in the area. It's smack in the middle of the Merchandise Mart so be prepared for that, but it is a proper bar and restaurant - it's not fast food and it's not just for cocktails or coffee sitting in a lounge area. They have real dining tables and even a separate dining room. Went for a lunch with coworkers and enjoyed it. Most of us got salads and thought they were pretty good. Service was a little slow when we went - may not be good if you're in a hurry. Might work if you sit at the bar and let them know you're in a rush. The Mart is a maze - this place is on the second floor right about in the middle of the building. It's not enclosed but the tables for dining are out of the way of the Mart foot traffic so you don't even notice all the people. More

Katie provided some of the best service I’ve ever experienced!! What a value to your team!! I wish I could buy a dress like hers, too. On your website you really only have stuff for men, the T-shirts, or general stuff like mugs. Why not a featured tiki dress of the month catered towards the women. Just a suggestion. The biggest thing that caused me to give a four star review versus a five, was that I ordered one of the more expensive drinks to share which was supposed to come with black ice aka fog, warranting the higher price. However, the fog only lasted for mere seconds, not even a full minute, which was very disappointing and the tin can it came in was a little beat up and nothing impressive to look at. Truly the reason why I enjoy tiki bars is for the mugs and fun presentation so to order something more expensive and have the presentation fall short of fun and entertaining was a little disappointing. Overall pretty fun environment and the taste of the drinks was great! I’m looking forward to my next visit. More

Anthony the manager made us feel like royalty. The food was all outstanding, standouts were the truffle risotto special and the rice pudding dessert. Lindsey at the bar gave us the perfect service for a nightcap afterwards. Overall a perfectly memorable birthday experience. More

Usually go there for the Quinoa salad that never disappoints but wanted to try something new. I had the California salad, and once again was not disappointed. The food is so good. You can tell they make their own dressings. 👍 More
