    Don’t understand the hype. Had to make a reservation for 4:30 because all other times were “booked”. The entire time we were there there was maybe 10 other people in the place. Drinks way overpriced and too big. Not going back there

    Loved the Tiki bar, the attention to detail is amazing! Presentation of the cocktails go above and beyond. There is only thing I would change, the place seems to overbook, some areas are very tight for larger parties, while smaller parties seem to have more space per person. I did bring it to their attention that we didn't have adequate table space, we had two tiny end-tables pushed together to have food and drink for 7, the hostess found us a larger table, still tight but more space to accommodate our drinks and food. Make sure to have reservation weeks in advance! Worth it!!!

    Went here with my husband and college-aged son last weekend. It was energetic albeit loud. We had a large table/booth. Drinks were fantastic, ambience was really fun, and the drinks were ah-maz-ing! Service was great. It was my second time visiting here. Can’t wait to go back. Drinks are STRONG—beware!

    Every time we are in the city we make a reservation of this place. We love the drinks and the vibe they offer. It is always busy so we recommend making a reservation so you have a place to sit. The bar area is always packed which can make enjoying your time there a little tricky.

    The ambience here is great if you’re into the dim lighting vibe. My sisters and I came her for our monthly date and it was great, our waitress was very pleasant and we received our drinks quickly. Why I didn’t give this place 5stars:..most of their drinks have a tree nut liquor and almond liquor incorporated into them. I have a severe peanut allergy and so does my sister, we aren’t allergic to tree nuts but you never know what’s exactly in a product in some of these restaurants, we would have felt more comfortable if the kitchen & our waitress reassured us that all the drinks & food coming to our table would be free of peanuts, and that did not happen. We were even brought a peanut sauce and we were all trying to get it off our table as quick as possible 🥴

    Our party of 7 had a lot of fun celebrating a Birthday. It is such a fun change of pace and unique to most bar/restaurants. They service was pretty good and the food was better than expected. We shared Captain Dino's Grand Pu Pu platter … and we each had a couple fun drinks. There is a lot to chose from and if money is no object - go have a blast. If you are like me and like to stretch a dollar - then eat first and then go enjoy appetizers, a shared Pu Pu platter, a drink or two and have some fun. I would go back again given the opportunity.
