Love this place! Beware the basil in the Zombie!!
My wife and I have been to The Tonga Room, Smuggler's Cove, Pagan Idol, Trader Vic's, you name it...Lava and Tonic is legit. The drinks were top notch. The service fantastic. It's clear that the team went with a "surf rock" vibe over a pure Tiki-South Seas vibe, but it works. A great date night!
Great location and ambiance for date night!
Beautiful atmosphere and very strong drinks. Some of the drinks don't taste the same as the last time I had them, I wonder if there was a change in the recipe.
Lava & Tonic is a phenomenal bar with a brilliantly calming atmosphere attached to it. It can be pricey, but drinks come in cute specialized glasses, are poured strong and taste great. The only 2 things holding this place back for me are:
1. Lack of any semi-extensive food menu (Some classic bar snacks would at least be nice). Maybe add some tiki-themed treats?
2. More seating space. Would love to see this same idea done in a larger location that can house more customers!
Keep up the great work, L&T!
This place is beautiful, dark, and quiet. Great place for a romantic date or a chill night with friends. The drink was the best tropical drink I've had in years. Didn't have any food so I can't speak for that. Highly recommend checking this place out.
Service was great and drinks were amazing! I will definitely be going back!
My favorite bar in Wichita and one of my favorites in the US. The drinks are delicious (and strong) and the atmosphere is perfect- an unexpected delight in the Midwest.
First time customers. Waitress was outstanding and the drinks over the top. Did not have the food item we ordered, however the manger was willing to comp another item that we wanted. Stay away from the Zombie (just kidding). Would highly recommend if you are looking at doing something other than the typical scene.
Drinks were fun, different and flavorful. A little on the expensive side. Limited food selection, price for small portion. It is more of bar than a restaurant. Highly recommend as a fun relaxing bar.
The ambiance was fun. It was a bit loud for talking, there were 6 of us. It was hard to find, no sign on the building. Drinks were pricey. For an occasional thing it is a good place to go. Don't know if they serve food or not but we didn't have any.
Very dark and quiet. Super cool decor. Burnt expensive pizzas and expensive drinks with way to much alcohol in them.
very awesome server, atmosphere was fantastic and drinks were stellar ✨
We loved it!! Super accommodating staff.
An atmosphere like none other with high quality drinks! One of the most unique places in Wichita, absolutely love this place!
Great drinks and a great way to spend my birthday!
Reminds me of a local Psycho Suzis Motorlodge.
Can’t go wrong with any drink on the menu! Friendly service, hand crafted cocktails and feels like your lost in a tropical paradise!
Great place to go with friends and feel like you're on a tropical 🐠🍹 beach somewhere while enjoying a wide variety of cocktails.
Great place for drinks or just to hang out with your friends. The atmosphere was inviting and different from the norm.
Perfect place for great drinks.
Fun New Years experience in the wacky 2020 world.
Great service as usual. Highly recommend the Grog Nog! Was the perfect place to warm up and cheer up post Christmas.
Great little tiki bar, with a good ambiance, and proper tiki drinks!
Love the ambiance. Nothing else like it in Wichita. Drinks are pricey but unique and worth it.
Love the new drink options on the menu! The key like tiki pie as heaven. My clients loved it and one stated that it felt like getting away for a mini tropical vacation and just what she needed after months of pandemic life. Our bartender Andrew as attentive and friendly as usual. The only reason I gave the food a lesser rating was because my pizza crust was soft, mushy and not warm in the center. Need to check that oven temp or cook time maybe! I am certainly had I notified the bartender of this it would’ve been addressed but I was simply lazy and ate it anyway.
Full stars for service and atmosphere !
Took my parents when they visited from out of state. What an adorable place with great drinks, service, and ambiance. I ordered the Jalisco Headhunter and it came out ON FIRE! We had a great experience and I will definitely be back.
The service was great. The server was personable and attentive. It was quite lovely 😊. I wish that they had more snack options like hawaiian nachos, egg rolls, or chicken wings.
Love the new menu drink options that were added. Also, using a QR code posted at the table so that we could all see the menu and not have extra thing so to touch was a great idea ! Plus it’s so dark in there I usually have to my phone light to read the old menu, having it on a screen is much easier.
We had a fun time and my clients really enjoyed it.
The staff was friendly, had our table ready, and our server was very friendly and helpful. She explained what the drinks were and offered selections. Will definitely be back!
This place is like a hidden gem. I love all the decorations and the vibe there I felt like I was on an island. Erika was so helpful and nice!
I took a client for drinks and they were impressed , really enjoyed it. We got great service by Andrew . He’s very knowledgeable about the drinks, gives good suggestions and highly attentive. I will always recommend this place whether for business or out with my friends.
**Didn’t know what to rate on food since we didn’t order any this time. However I have bought the pizzaA they offer before and they’re Delish.
We were a party of 4. Had the best service you could ask for. We tried 4 different drinks and 3 different pizzas. Every one exceptional. This is not a place you expect in Wichita. We've been to a few including Tikicat in KCMO and this was on equal footing in my opinion. Just go and enjoy. Know it's quiet and very dimly lit.
They ran out of pizzas by the time we got there so we can't comment on food quality, but the drinks were beyond amazing. Lava and Tonic is definitely a new favorite go-to drink spot for a fun but relatively calm night out.
Made a reservation and still got kicked out with a time limit. Was told to leave just after the second drink to rush another reservation in. Don’t accept more reservations if there’s not enough room. Open Table is awesome, no problems but this establishment should figure out when and when not to accept reservations.
We have purposefully reduced our capacity due to Covid-19. We are sorry you feel this way about our establishment. Feel free to reach out if you want to give any further feedback. lavaandtonic@gmail
It was a fun atmosphere. The drinks were strong so if you are a softy order lightly. All in all a good experience and will be going back.
Great service, wonderful atmosphere, and such a great fun time!
My husband and I love the ambience and the drinks are fun and amazingly good! Such a great place to unwind and relax after a long day! Highly recommend you give them a try...you won't be disappointed!
Such a cool place to go with friend & family! Make a reservation a head of time.
We did not have any food. Everytime the door opened, it was VERY BRIGHT. An outside awning would be great! Everything else was FABULOUS!
