I loved the experience! The lighting, ambiance, and service was outstanding. When I go back I will give the food another try. We ordered the Yucca fries and the guacamole. They sprinkle cinnamon on the yucca which I did not care for. Guacamole was good but it's a tiny tiny portion. The spring rolls looked good. I was able to accumulate 3x points that day through lettuce eats rewards!!

Incredible tiki bar with fun and inventive drinks, some classics as well. I would recommend the Mai Tai 2.0 and the Never Say Die. A reservation will get you a comfortable table without a wait. Otherwise you will likely end up standing.

We were actually in town for a secret wedding, I had never been before, but head amazing things. We had such a great time enjoying different drinks and celebrating. Our server was outstanding and recommendations spot on. We shared a large bowl drink to start, then had a round of individuals, followed by a flaming skull to finish it off. Could not recommend more

Great place to grab some fun drinks and catch up with friends. The small appetizers aren’t anything to write home about but the focus of the place is on the drinks and the experience. We always have a ton of fun ordering different drinks and catching up with friends here.

We stopped in for a quick drink before a show. I ordered the Aloha Felicia #3 and my fiance ordered the Mai Tai 2.0. The Mai Tai was definitely strong! Not my favorite, but he enjoyed it. The Aloha Felicia was tropical and delicious! Service could have been better, but overall it was a fun experience!

Love the fire-hunter with the flame inside of a lemon peel. Too popular that we feel it's a little bit crowded but overall a good experience.

Such a fun spot. I've been wanting to go here for a while and finally went for my birthday last weekend. Great ambiance and the service was excellent. We got the conch shell, which was delicious, and a sample platter with different appetizers. Fun place that is great for a group outing.

This is an authentic tiki bar - fun, kitschy, and retro. The drinks with umbrellas and flowers are fun and tasty. The pupu platters make a great appetizer.

Very fun! Loved the drinks and the appetizers. Great ambiance. Tell them not to add ice to your drink or go light on the ice. Drinks were expensive and overloaded with ice.

Went for my girlfriends 23rd birthday. Drinks were excellent, our service was good as well. The only thing I got frustrated about is I made this reservation for 8 people 3 weeks in advance and they were only able to comfortably seat 6 in a round booth and said they could only add one chair..so that takes care of 7 how bout our 8th person... our bill was over 500 dollars, so we were spending our money, think they would have been a bit more accommodating. But other than this everyone enjoyed the night.

The atmosphere was excellent, however, the drinks were not. My friend and I each had a drink, and neither were very good. I got one that was super strong (two skulls) and didn’t even get a buzz. My friend’s Mai Tai 2.0 had a funky taste. I don’t mind paying the high price for these drinks, but they need to taste good and be stronger. We left after one drink even though we had planned on staying there all night. I’ve been to waaaaay better tiki bars. Sorry guys but you need to step up your game.

I have dined at 2 dots and a dash a couple of time now and it has become one of my favorite Speakeasies. The atmosphere is so energetic, noisy but fun. The food is good but the drinks are the star of the show. If you are looking for a great place to drink and have fun drinks--with food on the side this is the spot. This was the first night I had been there and there where issues with the kitchen. I ordered 3 different entries and they where out of those. The only problem was no customer service recovery for the mishap as I have been a couple of times each item was a new experience for me. Other then that the service is great and it did not deter me from going back, however I may push a little harder on the fact that the recovery needs to be a little more robust if I had been a first time customer as was my 2 friends I would not have come back.

Throwback to the 60s Tiki rooms (adult) with volcanic drinks and pupu platters. Just a fun place for socializing, people watching and having conversation. The food was tasty and drinks had enough kick to justify the hefty price tag.

Everything overall was fun. Food menu was lacking a bit, and food portions were small. Cocktails were amazing but the price limits the amount of cocktails you can try. Definitely worth finding and trying.

The drinks are fun but very expensive. They also leave you feeling super full as they are loaded with sugar. No beers on tap so come for the bottle, can, or festive hawaiian drinks. Music was pretty mellow on a Tuesday aso between the drinks and the music we got bored within an hour.
