Finding tiki bars is forever part of our 'travel to do' list. While we didn't eat, the drinks were outstanding & the need to ask nearby tables about their order was unavoidable. Every drink we had was unique & memorable. Highlight was the pineapple snowflakes in the Kuikawa. I'd eat that over ice cream.

Always a good time.

Made a table reservation (which is amazing that there is NO cost to reserve a table) and our party arrived in waves. No issue with that, which is great. Some places don’t let you sit until everyone is there. Drinks are amazing (Cobras Fang- sweet and strong, but mellowed by the absinthe, Birds of Paradise- banana rum, thick viscosity and definitely a sipper). Had the food last time I was there- good small bites (Yucca frites are the BOMB).

The server had no issue taking multiple forms of payment (drinks on multiple people’s cards) and was great about it.

Always ready to come back to my favorite cocktail bar :)

My experience was amazing! It was my sisters birthday and she a had a blast! The ambiance was perfect from the music to the decor! My waitress was very attentive but also gave us our space to enjoy our drinks! And don’t even get me started on the drinks! My party of 5 each order our own drink and a group drink, both were outstanding! Thy also gave my sister a complimentary birthday shot and it mellowed her out so well! All and all and amazing experience and I would recommend to a friend! I will be returning for my birthday this summer!

The atmosphere was so nice. Great drinks. Worth the money. I would recommend that you make reservations for table. Bar was very busy and you would have to stand if you don’t. Besides worth getting the food as a snack

Fantastic drinks chock-full of alcohol! We chose to have the 3 skull drinks (that relate to the intensity of the alcohol) assuming that they wouldn't make them that strong. They WERE that strong! They were phenomenal. The presentation was incredible and the drink transported me to being on a beach in Mexico. Our server was very attentive and the ambiance inside was incredible.

Hard to find but a very cool place. Once we got pass the rude bouncer we enjoyed our drinks and the atmosphere. We ordered a Vicious Virgin, tasted like a margarita. Was very good. We also ordered a Strip and get Naked drink, it’s on the sweet side but very good. Fun place to go with friends!

Server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Food was unexpectedly very good. Drinks were tasty, but thought for the price could have been stronger. Would recommend it as a beginning of night place, but too expensive to stay and drink at for longer periods. Would go back with a new group that hasn't tried it out yet.

Enjoy the ambience it was fun entering through the alley with the tiki torches all lit! Maybe one more guy at the door just keep an eye on things you know Safety First! Inside atmosphere was awesome the maitre d' helped us when the guy in line behind us didn't want to leave us. The drink was just a bit too strong for us or the table next to us at $85 I guess I was expecting something a little more fruity and drinkable. I should have said something to the waitress but when we gave the $85 drink to the table next to us you think she would have asked us if there was an issue. They couldn't drink it either. Live and learn!

Atmosphere was great, food was good. Doorman ck'd id and told me happy birthday! Disappointing Birthday dinner. Service was not great, she was rude and pushy. We reflected that in her tip. Other friends suggested this place and based on their experience, I probably will return one more time.

Katie provided some of the best service I’ve ever experienced!! What a value to your team!! I wish I could buy a dress like hers, too. On your website you really only have stuff for men, the T-shirts, or general stuff like mugs. Why not a featured tiki dress of the month catered towards the women. Just a suggestion. The biggest thing that caused me to give a four star review versus a five, was that I ordered one of the more expensive drinks to share which was supposed to come with black ice aka fog, warranting the higher price. However, the fog only lasted for mere seconds, not even a full minute, which was very disappointing and the tin can it came in was a little beat up and nothing impressive to look at. Truly the reason why I enjoy tiki bars is for the mugs and fun presentation so to order something more expensive and have the presentation fall short of fun and entertaining was a little disappointing. Overall pretty fun environment and the taste of the drinks was great! I’m looking forward to my next visit.

This little gem is quite unique and is reminiscent of a Polynesian tiki bar circa 1945. Despite the chilly temps outside, the ambiance and temps inside made it a cozy little getaway in the heart of the city.

Fun place, best concept and genuinely different so a must try! Hard to find if u don’t know it’s in alley. Be prepared for darkness and noise factor. Drinks are fun and tasty but expensive cuz lots of ice! Food tastes good but way overpriced for what you get. Pu pu platter suggests Enuf for 3-4 people. This was our meal so ate it all. All finger foods. Not a lot in platter tho all delish. Four sauces are nice addition. Luau chips are so crispy and taste great. Think for Valentine’s Day would be nice if they gave ladies a flower.

Very good experience! The ambiance was great, we loved the tropical tiki vibe and the drinks were really good. Service is great and with a reservation (we made one 3 weeks prior, because we know how busy it can be!) everything went smoothly! Just lacked 1 thing in the platter for sharing, something like a bowl rice to go with the tapas-like platter. Other than that, amazing place and perfect for a date!
