We celebrated an engagement here - wonderful tiki-themed cocktails and a surprising kitchen - fresh and tasty food - fusion Hawaiian/Japanese. Something for everyone. A friendly Aloha and Mahalo to boot.

Loved the Jungle Bird, the food was excellent and the service was as well. If it could just be a little lighter? We had to use the flashlight on our phones to read the menu!

The holiday decor was great, as usual. The service was okay. The waitress didn’t seem overly enthused to be there. Our biggest complaint, though, related to the food on this particular night. I love the Tonga Poke. I have had it multiple times and so suggested it to my friend on this visit. We both got it. It was so incredibly spicy, which I think was primarily due to the seasoned chips, that we were both suffering. I enjoy spicy food, but this was spicy to the extent of making my stomach queasy. We had originally intended to stay longer, but between the less-than-friendly waitress and unenjoyable food, we decided to head down to the holiday bar at Red Rabbit.

I would go back to Jungle Bird because I love the theming, but I think I’ll skip the poke in the future

We had a table reserved and were seated immediately. The food menu is relatively small, but the drink menu is huge. We had fun with the drink menu. The appetizers were amazing. The main entrees were just ok. If I went back it would be for drinks and appetizers. The ambiance was different and nice, but actually not as "tiki lounge" as I was expecting. Music would have been nice. I think they only had jungle type sounds. That said, my friends and I could actually hear each other across the table. If it was too much louder that would not have been possible. Caveat though, we were there from 7:30-9. I'm sure it's much louder as the night wears on. Overall I would recommend it and I would definitely go back for appetizers.

We frequent the Jungle Bird and love when the bartenders/servers remember us.

I apologize for being unable to remember the waitresses name, however, both times that she has had our table we have found her service to be lacking. She does not offer to refill water. She does not offer to refill drinks. This time she asked once if we wanted more drinks, but not everyone was ready. She brought two drinks for those that were ready, but never offered to the rest of us once we were ready. We had to ask for additional drinks several times. The rest of the staff and the location is amazing.

Tiki are an acquired taste. I enjoy them so I had a great time. That said the food is pretty tasty, the drinks are flavorful but a tad small even though they come in fairly large & in some cases heavy glasses. The decor is what makes it fun...go enjoy...try something different

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and haphazardly mentioned I’d like to do something special for her and Buddy (I believe the manager?) immediately stepped up and did not disappoint!! My girlfriend absolutely loved the experience and we will definitely be coming back! Thank you so so so much for a wonderful night!

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.
