    Such fun! Outdoor "rooms" are decorated as various planets in the Star Wars universes. Blow ups and other decor are added for ambiance, and modern takes on Star Wars-classic music tops it off. Drinks are pricey but delicious. Food was scrumptious. Expensive considering the $10 per person reservation fee, but a fun way to spend a birthday.

    The food was incredible, and we enjoyed the variety of dishes to choose from. Portion sizes varied quite a bit from dish to dish, and some dishes were much larger than pictured, which was a pleasant surprise for sharing. Each dish was well prepared and presented beautifully. We were relatively disappointed by the atmosphere, considering the $10/person “experience” charge. The waitstaff wasn’t dressed for the theme, and some banged-up cardboard cutouts, a giant blowup Jabba and a couple wall hangings didn’t make that extra $40 spent worth it for our party. The website boasted photo ops, but we were led quickly to our private area and not told about any other areas we could see. Service was very sparse and hands off. We only saw our server, Jim, in quick bursts to drop off food and pick up plates. He didn’t explain the menu, and seemed rushed whenever we used our call button. We couldn’t tell if he was stretched thin or just uninterested. We didn’t appreciate the payment system at all. It would have been easier for our party of two couples to just hand over two credit cards and split the bill, instead of the confusion of all paying for our own stuff separately. We’ll likely come back to dine inside; I would caution anyone against purchasing an “experience” of themed dining here, as for us it just was meh and not worth the extra $40 overall.

    First time here and we LOVED it! You get your own little section, there are Star Wars decorations everywhere. I loved the Baby Yodas everywhere. You order drinks and food through your phone using the QR code. There is a button to call your server if you need extra plates or napkins. We ordered some drinks that came in cool mugs/cups. I was surprised at how much was inside of them. All the food items that we ordered were delicious. We had a fun time taking pictures and enjoyed our time in our own little themed room. We will definitely be back again. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed our experience. The only thing that could be changed to be better, would be serving the non-alcoholic beverages in themed cups too, my teenagers were kind of bummed that we (the adults) got our drinks in cool mugs and they got regular glasses. Otherwise, it was a really fun time. We went on their Sunday night family night and had a blast.

    WAY overpriced food! Two people paid $98 when all was said and done.l and neither of us got drinks or dessert even. The tiny little tapas plates were all $9-15 each and came with two bites per person, basically. Tapas are supposed to be small sampling and sharing plates, but in the dozens of tapas places I've tried across the USA and other countries, I've never seen portion sizes so tiny for a $15 plate! And they weren't even that good. Only one we genuinely liked were the barbacoa tacos. The empanada and crab toasts tasted like something I'd buy out of a Walmart grab n go case and heat up in a microwave. Then their was the ambiance. We paid for a private experience Star Wars room and it was totally bland and unoriginal. Basically you were outside in a tent with a little fireplace and some Star Wars themed cut outs and tapestries. There were a few inflatable Christmas decorations. That was it. You could pay $15-20 for a drink in a fun cup....but not get to keep the cup. For this to be an "experience" I'd expect some interactive elements, actual music and/or sound clips playing, things to read on the wall, props you could play around with, themed food (not just renaming your actual menu items) etc. We paid $20 to sit by a campfire and look at cheap Amazon tapestries. Don't waste your money. We got stuff from the food truck on our walk back to the car for $20 and THAT was fantastic! Movida, at least the experience rooms, was absolute garbage.

    As always the food is served very quickly and the staff is very gracious. My only complaint is the room reservation fee, ten dollars per person adds up when you’re also doing a service charge and a tip. I would prefer a flat fee. Thanks again, mk.

    We had a great time at Bar Far Far Away. We were a little underwhelmed with the "private room" but quickly warmed up to the fun as we got our first drinks. The food was the star of the night, everything was spectacular. I highly recommend the shishito peppers and croquettes. I don't know that I need to partake in the Bar Far Far Away another time, but I will be back to the cute little bar we walked past for that food again.

    Comfortable warm tent with canvas walls that separate the rooms. A few 'hall' blow ups and decorations for pictures. Can kinda peak in the other rooms, but all were busy. Tapas small portions but good. Paella big portion. Street rice delicious. A fun something different outing for any Star Wars fan.

    The theming of the Star Wars rooms was fun. Rooms were warm despite being on an outdoor patio in winter. The fire in our table was almost too hot as it made plates and glasses very hot if they were sitting on the table near the fire. Food and drinks were incredible. Love the themed mugs for the cocktails. All ordering is done via app, but there is a call button for a server if you have questions or need something. There is a $10 charge per person to reserve the rooms which seems to come back to you not as a credit on your bill but in the form of gift cards that can be used at later visits (gift cards are one per person and you can only use one at a time on future visits, so our party of 4 will have to return 4 times it seems to use all of ours. I’m not complaining, just pointing out that this was not clear in advance). There is an 18% gratuity automatically added to the bill which was not overly clear on the app when paying at the end of the night.

    Super-fun Star Wars themed pods on the Movida restaurant patio. These are little sectioned off private-ish pods that are each different in decor and seating options. I think they pick for you depending on group size. All the ordering is done via QR and app. The drinks are really good tiki style mostly. And the food is really good as well. Setting is great for drinks and tapas, maybe not a meal style outing. Not cheap but fairly priced for the experience and quality.

    It’s okay. Personally not worth the booking fee of 10$ per person. Unless a small group goes. Or each person pays for themselves. The booking fee doesn’t go towards any food or drinks and there’s no “freebies” to make it worth it. Just a fire pit and decorations. But that’s it. It’s not bad, but I personally wouldn’t go back.

    Overpriced; food not worth the price. Setting was just ok. Waitress spilled a drink on family member's new shoes and didn't replace the drink. We asked for extra bread for cheese spread as we only got three small pieces. We were charged an extra $2 for stale bread. Sorry to say I would not recommend this . We were looking forward to this and were very disappointed. .

    Very cool setup and the food was quick and fantastic. Our server and host were friendly, but other staff not so much. The experience itself though otherwise was good. I didn’t love having to leave my id at the bar to get drinks as it was difficult for the bartender to find time to get it back to me. I did feel it was overall worth the price and a unique experience.

    We came for the Star Wars themed experience. Most of our issues would have been resolved if the service explained the menu and prices upfront. Everything was done on the phone. We ordered a noodle dish- Came with rice as they stated they were out of noodles. We didn’t know what the drink 1/2 off specials were, we didn’t know about the service charge on the bill (even after Paying $10 per person to make the reservation!!)

    I wish we would’ve been told about the Covid service fee before being sat or paying for the reservation. That added another 10% to our bill that was a surprise when going to pay. The group next to us also brought this to their attention and it’s a missed opportunity. Food was great, drinks were decent but the cost was a bit high for quantity.

    What a great time! We did the star wars bar and was in Hoth. They did an amazing job setting up. It was quiet and intimate for just two people but had rooms for larger groups. Food was incredible and the Sangria was amazing. Definitely going back. Our waitress was very hands off but helpful when needed.

    Honestly for the price per person I thought the room we got ( wookie planet) was very sub par, the walls were literally shower curtain liners. And a few blow up Star Wars ships and a chewy cutout. The broth was a nice touch, the glasses were cool, and the half off deal on the Jabba old fashioned a is the only reason I didn’t give it 3 stars. You order off your phone and it’s brought out to you. The other rooms looked cooler but don’t think I’ll go back.

    The place was decorated well and really appeals to all of those Star Wars lovers. However, the drinks and food were extremely expensive. Our bill was a little outrageous for the amount of things we had. Enjoyed our time, but most likely will not return because of the cost.

    Last year the $10 per person for reservations was credited to our account. This year is was not relayed to us that this was just $10 per person extra. For a family of 5 we payed $50 on top of the drinks and food. When I asked our server she didn’t know anything about it. She stated she didn’t even know there was an extra fee when she was the one who handed us the check. We left without an answer. My family and I love Star Wars and the experience was really cool... but as a business model it’s really unfortunate. We were planning on visiting several more times this season with more friends and family but it’s just not worth it. On a better note I will say the pumpkin sangria was one of the best things I ever tasted.
