We love bringing first-timers to The Jungle Bird, and it never disappoints! But always make a reservation, as they were turning people away for tables, and the bar was standing room only. The PuPu platter was great, as were all of the drinks.

Fun place to go with good food and tropical drinks. It's a tad dark inside so needed phone light to see the menu. This is not the place for you if you are in a hurry. Sit back and enjoy the ambiance!

This was our first time to Jungle Bird and on our tiki bar list. They were having a special mug release party for the Sacramento Ohana by Woody Miller. We had a great time and met some wonderful people. Food is excellent...I am not kidding. I thanked the chef personally. Drinks are good. Great decor and a friendly vibe.
Well worth checking it out. Great place to escape to your own personal island.

I’m not usually one to post reviews... but this place was excellent and deserves a shout out! The cocktails and the food were fantastic! I don’t usually drink sweet, blended drinks - but I had their amazing lava swirl cocktail that blew my mind! It’s a combo of strawberry daiquiri and pina colada. The mix to booze ration was perfect! We ordered a few plates to share. We had the special gumbo and their beef noodles... and both were flavorful and absolutely delicious. The ambiance was just like being at the Tiki Room in Disneyland... they even have the pineapple desserts. We will definitely be going back!!!!

We reserved a table for 10, we ended having 12 and the staff accommodated. Bartender was helpful for my friends who had never been. Waiter was pleasant and service was good. Food came out in waves, but we kind of expected that being there right when they opened on a Sunday. My 4th time dinning and drinking there and I will definitely go again.

First, in Regards to the One Star (Food) I didn't order food. Had to mark something in order to move forward! Loved the Place & the Drinks!
Fab Service...
Suggestion: for the table(4) by the bathrm & 2nd Bar! (the 1 No one likes)make it a Table(2) and put in a half wall/rail & pole. So when 5-12 ppl are standing/walking they have something else to fall into instead of Table & other customers sitting there.💕

The place is very much a tiki bar. Fun décor. Food was not great, but wasn't bad.The Mai Tai wasn't great but their signature Jungle Bird drink was good. The place is too dark to read their menu. Everyone we saw, including us had to use the light on their cellphones to read the menu.

Fun Tiki Bar Restaurant with shared platters and excellent tropical drinks. Birthday gathering with our young adult kids. Quite dark inside, but it added to the ambience.

Great atmosphere. Great food. Good value. Service was poor. She never gave her name so "she," was inattentive & took my drink away before it was empty. I had to chase her down the aisle.

Fun drinks! Awesome pupu platter to share. Fantastic waitress who split our shared platter & dessert between our party so we could be reimbursed by our employer for our business trip...she did this independently and that really impressed us.

Too slow. Food was not impressive. Couldn’t see what I was eating since it was so dark. Staff kept opening and closing back door of the restaurant. Bright light from outside interrupted dark ambience in the restaurant many times. My eyes had to keep adjusting from dark to light.

Drinks and food are great, bartenders are awesome, but the waiter we had in the restaurant section was AWFUL. We had to ask multiple times for utensils and water refills, he said he would bring us a pitcher and never did. The kitchen also seemed overwhelmed even though the restaurant was only half-full (and it’s a tiny place). Two of our table of 8 got their entrees about 45 mins before the last person received their food! We will definitely go back for just drinks and maaaaybe appetizers, but never again for dinner.

Went for our second time and took my husbands 2 daughters. It was their first tiki bar. We ordered coconut shrimp And chicken skewers to munch on, both were very good. My husband and I split the Macadamia ChiChi Again.

Love their happy hour, though limited cocktail options. So many tiki cocktails to choose from otherwise. Pu Pu platter is a great deal and every bite is delicious. I'm so thrilled that they now take reservations. During popular times, the wait for a table could be an hour or more in the past.

I have come to the Jungle Bird plenty of times and had the best service yet this past Sunday. My server, I wish I knew her name, was incredibly attentive, gracious with helping me clean a spilled drink, and hilarious. The food was delicious and the drinks were strong and fantastic. I took my friend, who has never been to a tiki bar, and I am glad this trip around was her first time.

I love Tiki Bars. They transport you to another time when life was simple. We went for drinks before the Jimmy Buffett concert. Service was good. We made a reservation Open Table to guarantee a table. Every table was taken @5pm. They also have a nice outdoor area with tables. Great decor! We will be back.

This is a little hard to rate as a restaurant as it is primarily a tiki-cocktail bar. We went there for a lunch and there really was only one thing on the menu for a satisfactory lunch (hamburger) - the rest of the menu is smaller dishes to have with the aforementioned cocktails. The hamburgers were very good and our service was excellent but as a place to go for a lunch, I'd suggest going elsewhere. It is a little hard to find and then to tell if it is even open - it is basically dark from the street with no signage. One of us was on a wooden chair - the other was sitting on a rock ledge without a cushion. This is probably ok if you are with a group and having drinks but pretty uncomfortable as a dining establishment.
