Go early if you want faster service and a good table. Food was better before their menu changes but still good. It's really all about the cocktails and ambience! Great for drinks with friends or a quick bite before a play.
Excellently executed drinks, yummy small plates and perfect service! What a fun date night!
The drinks are always the top highlights, a lot of great choices. Also, the ambiance is amazing.
My favorite bar in NYC, we come here every time we are in the city for business.
This is my 2nd time visiting. The food and drink menu changed so some favorites are gone. For shellfish allergies mostly everything is fried in the same oil so my friend could only eat the fries. The staff was overbearing at times and asked to bus the table before we were done. It wasn't crowded and other groups were not bothered at all. Not a comfortable feeling since we were the only AA there so we won't be back.
drinks were great
Amazing atmosphere. Great drinks. Unique decor. I will keep coming back and reccomend this place!
Food was excellent, drinks weren’t spectacular, also was a bit overpriced. On the drinks, it may have just been us, my girlfriend and I, but they were either too alcohol heavy or they were too ingredient heavy, no balance. Ambience and theme were great.
Drink was amazing, I just hope there was a better selection off food.
Drinks were delish. Ambiance was cool. Food was ok. Our server was horrific.
Amazing, very nice place
Decided to try some cocktails and late night snacks after an evening out. The
Before concert meal
Overall a good experience but service was lacking. Had to consistently flag down different servers to order more drinks, food, and get the check. Would still go back.
Great place with great drinks, but poor service. We sat for about two hours and seemed like our waiter had forgotten about us.
The drinks were good and strong. On the expensive side. We would go back if the service had been better. After receiving our first round of drinks, we didn't see a server for over 1.5hr and never received the food we ordered. We also had wanted to order more drinks but they weren't around.
Fun to check out tiki bar in NYC as we love tiki culture and to explore spots all over the USA.
overpriced in my opinion but still very fun
Loveeeee this place !!
Friendly staff, great cocktails, nice nibbles and an amazing atmosphere.
The space is not as unique as it looked in the photos, it’s just ok.
Service was very slow.
If you want the old Tiki experience , this is a good place to go. Was crowded but not overly noisy. Everything (drinks and food items) run about $20-25. A fun place to spend the money. Have a very limited menu, even smaller than you see on line but the items we ordered were very good (coconut shrimp, crab ragoons, dumplings, fries)
I had higher expectation- theming is ok but nothing special, and drinks were not great.
Great place for drinks and bar food. Drinks were nicely presented and tasty. The food was great and as expected for bar food. Nice level is loud, but I was able to talk to those seating near me. Awesome place, great for people watching and just having cool looking and tasty cocktails.
I have no idea where the strong reviews for this place come from. Cheesy, terrible apps, poor drink selections. Just something low-class about it from the jump. I was handed a cheap cardboard menu that was sticky as hell and disgusting. Food was cheap - frozen grocery store quality and WAY overpriced. Service was decent. Would not recommend.
The cocktails were good and varied In sweet to extra sweet. There were not many options for food. The bar snacks were mostly the fried kind and left us wanting something healthy and substantial. The decor was the highlight.
Everything was perfect : the food, the cocktails , the ambiance, the music and the best of all : the waiter John !
Thanks for all
It was an excellent moment for my Birthday !
The Polynesian is a great place for getting tiki drinks - their drinks are interesting, flavorful, and they use a generous amount of alcohol. The vibe inside is very frenetic - music is funky and loud, and the interior is great. However, don't arrive hungry - the finger-foods they provide are generally fried and small in portions.
I LOVE tiki drinks. The Polynesian is a absolutely stellar example of the tiki arts. We had a wonderful time and will absolutely be back.

Such a fun place! The food is appetizer style and exists solely to keep people from getting too drunk. The drinks are amazing and potent. Warning... I’m 205lbs, and two of the specialty cocktails knock me on my butt every time!
The drinks are pricey but really good. However the food quality has declined since the past times I have been there.
Hmmm this place is beautiful but as it got closer to pretheatre was very crowded and noisy, and the drinks are super expensive--like $19 per. The special tiki cocktails themselves are delicious and beautifully presented. Food menu limited but tasty--dumplings, curry fried cauliflower, spring rolls, a few things like that. It's a nice concept atmosphere wise and excellent servers, but I think we were the only non-tourists there, and I'm not sure I'd return. I would recommend it to someone from out of town who has money and wants an over-the-top experience.
I love this place. High end tiki bar serving some of the best rum drinks I’ve had in NYC.
This a great and fun bar located close to the theatres and transportation The cocktails are on point and the food is really good. It has the authentic Tiki bar feel!
The coconut shrimps were the best I ever had!
Great drinks! We were sitting at the bar. Barkeeper were great and easy to talk. Try it! We did not try the food.
Delicious food, drinks and good music.
The reason why I give the food a one star cause I didn’t have a chance to try to there food... there drinks are strong but it’s sooooooo dammmm good to honest taste a cocktail with alcohol
