My boyfriend was obsessed with the Dan Dan noodles with Lamb! Super good drinks and the server was so sweet for bringing us free shots since our drinks were taking a bit longer to make. Can't wait to go back!

We love the Grass Skirt. This was the first time we had food and ended up ordering much more because it was so tasty! Please bring back the passion fruit and the octopus banana drinks!

We had a great birthday celebration at the Grass Skirt on Friday night. The drinks were fabulous, there was live music, the tiki environment was well done, and the plates were perfect for sharing. We felt comfortable with the Covid 19 precautions. We pulled up our menu through a QR code, were seated in a separate booth with curtains between the booths, and there was ample space between everyone. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Gorgeous place on the inside but we were stuck in a cramped and uncomfortable outdoor patio area (even though there was ample seating indoors) where we could hear the nearby traffic even over the music which was played way too loudly. Speaking of which, the music selection was a real mood killer. It was neither Hawaiian, nor tropical or resembling anything I’ve ever heard before in a tiki type bar.
The drinks were stellar and the service was good but based on my experience I probably won’t return

The ramen and the hand rolls were exceptional! Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful; she relocated us closer to the musical entertainment, which was a bit of a challenge with the social distancing restrictions. Near the end of the evening I walked over to the bar and the bartender answered my questions about the various rums they stock. Great Father’s Day experience!

The Grass Skirt is a wonderful Tiki Bar. Incredible ambiance combined with awesome drinks. The bartenders are excellent. On top of that, all the employees are incredibly friendly and the service is top notch. If you are in the San Diego area a visit to The Grass Skirt is a must!

Time limit was understandable, but always kept checking clock and felt rushed a little rushed being our first time out since COVID. The waitress, however, kept on our maintenance and requests expeditiously! Drinks did their job and food was delicious!

I was served sushi with out soy sauce, warm tap water, and pad Thai that tasted like it had a whole bottle of fish sauce in it. Some of the shrimp looked very old as well. Sushi was good as was the atmosphere.

Ani was really great with getting our drinks and food. She was an amazing waitress and we loved her vibe. We came in right on our reservation time and they sat on right there and then. I love coming here for a little group get together because they’re very quick and efficient with whatever we need. 100% would recommend making reservations when coming with a big group!!

This was a fun bar to visit. We didn't realize that reservations would be restricted to 1.5 hours, but that was fine.

The only complaint I have is that our waitress took a long time to visit the table again to ask if we were ready to order. The space was fun, the ambience was great, the drinks were good. I would've ordered more if it were easier to get an order in!

Overall a fun girls night location, it was a specialty night with Dim Sum menu. The options were limited, and kind of expensive for what was offered. I wouldn't say anything stood out as fantastic but we did have a good time and nothing was bad. The table we reserved outside was more of a lounge table so not really suited for dinner we had planned, this could be disclosed prior to booking. The wait staff was able to move us in to a real table, and they were very accommodating . The pay at the table option they use now is super convenient for people breaking up the bill as well.

My boyfriend and I love this place! Our favorites are the pork belly bao buns and the poke bowl. Went to Dim Sum night and got to try some other stuff that was all delicious. Eventually we’ll branch out and order something different. I highly suggest this restaurant for any occasion. Super fun and laid back at the same time

Fun restaurant for all ages. The food was delicious and the menu variety pleased everyone at the table. We enjoyed signature cocktails served in parrot and Tiki God glasses. The chocolate lava cake served with a fire accent topped of evening.

There was no more indoor seating available and the outdoor seating area didn't have a big enough table to eat on so we ended up holding our plates. The theme was and experience was nice.
