    Poor breakfast quality, but cool atmosphere. Should stick to being an evening spot. We were the only people there and had to wait on the check. We and for brunch, I asked for milk for my coffee. They have no milk. This rises many questions.

    Great vibes, we had a reservation but we got seated 25 minutes late which was a little annoying, but good service otherwise. Drinks were delicious. Music was a little too loud inside, made it hard to have conversations.

    Very mediocre. They specialize in tropical cocktails but neither my wife or I would ever again order the same. My order of Hawaian BBQ was poor - thin slices of very tough beef in a bland BBQ sauce. We paid over $100 for this poor dining experience and left feeling like they should have paid us.

    I love Dr. Funk , We have been enjoying this Tiki bar since opening week . Love the decor and service . Just tried brunch for the second time . The food was fine but a bit cold and were out of the bloody Melea cocktail that I was looking forward to . Other than that I would be back and suggest to try this unique fun spirited tiki bar .

    Went to Dr Funk for a date and used OpenTable to reserve a table indoors. When we arrived we were told that there was no space because a party had reserved the area and was instead forced to sit outside in the cold. There was another couple that was told that their reservation would not be honoured either. Don’t bother using OpenTable.

    We chose outdoor seating, which was a mistake. There were heaters, but no propane, so we were a bit chilled. The food seemed a little overpriced for the quality. For example, I had the short ribs, which were served in a basket and comparable to L&L, so taste was good, meat quality OK, but not what I would expect for $25. My wife’s salad came with very little dressing, but our server was kind enough to get us more. The drinks were good, which is really what folks come for - I just wish the food has been a better match in quality.

    I love Dr. Funk - and I love real Tiki. But what happened? The food menu got dumbed down and what's left was bland. The amazing Tiki menu was dumbed down too (you can't make a Jet Pilot anymore? Did the chef leave). I hope Dr. Funk comes back to the glory it's been ever since it opened... Will go again, but please fix the food (and don't loose drinks).

    Dr. Funk is an overlooked tiki gem in San Jose. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but they've got classic, old school tropical./beachcomber decor to die for, an expansive outdoor dining area and a menu full of quality cocktails. My only complaint was that they had no custom mugs available for purchase.

    I was really excited to try this place and decided to go for brunch. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre at best. Some of staff were inappropriately dressed for food service. Our waitress took our order and then sat at the bar the entire time. Another waitress who was in-training happened to stop by and took care of us. She was busy but did her best to make sure we were taken care of. What a disappointing experience.

    Service was terrible, friend accidentally spilled a drink and the waitress did not want to help. She wiped it once with still leaving liquids on the table. Did not ask if we wanted another drink or offer a second round of drink, while sitting there with our drink was finish. Nice decor and vibes but the waitress ruin the night

    Fantastic drinks! All together we tried 6 different drinks and all were great. This is more of an appetizer place. We shared three appetizers and they were good, but the coconut shrimp were outstanding, not too sweet and tasted like fresh coconut.

    The food is extremely over priced for small portions. But not bad. Our sever was extremely rude when asking question about the receipt that did not make sense. This is the second time we came here. Still love the place but this last experience left us with a sour taste in our mouth and the next time we go we will be more cautious about what we order and how long we stay.

    Outside seating was very comfortable, and dog friendly. We are still cautious about eating indoors unmasked, so this was perfect. Our server Jasmine was very attentive, we never felt abandoned outside, out of sight. The planes landing near by at SJC were intrusive but not frequent, worth the comfort of sitting outdoors. Also so nice that the street is now closed to car traffic.
