I was hosting a bachelor party and we had a TON of fun. The atmosphere was so fun and our waitress was amazing. She was well-knowledged and knew the menu well enough to suggest the perfect drink for all. We had some individual drinks and a shared one and all the drinks were delicious. Would definitely recommend!

Loved the ambiance and that it felt like you were a VIP on the guest list just to get in! Drinks were just okay (I tried 2) but they have good french fries! Would go again.

It’s a bit over priced and the waitress talked to us like we were twelve, but overall it’s a fun experience.

I had never dined here before and I will never return. I had LEYE gift cards and thought I'd venture into the city because they have much better selections of restaurants. The menu I saw on Open Table, had several other items on it that the restaurant doesn't offer. Even if the service was good, I wouldn't recommend this place for an actual meal. We asked a bus boy, who clearly spoke English, if he could take our picture really quick, and he responded, 'Yah...I have other things to do,' and walked away. We ordered the Bali Bali for our table, which looked amazing as it was coming out, and then our waitress spilled it all over one of the guests at our table. No apologies were offered by our server. The manager came over, gave his card, and offered to pay for the dry cleaning. It took 15 minutes to bring out another drink that was quickly consumed. When we received the bill, we were charged $85 for that drink. Someone came by the table when they saw our check book standing, but nothing inside of it. She asked if she could assist us, and I asked to speak with a mgr. The girl went back into the kitchen, and my boyfriend heard her say, 'someone else go deal with that table, I'm not dealing with her,' (me). VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!! 20 minutes later, our server came over and informed us the mgr was dealing with an internal issue, and if she could help. I asked for them to remove the $85 drink since it was spilled all over and should have been removed from the beginning. The mgr finally appeared, and had removed the charge. Not realizing I was the one paying, he couldn't be bothered to apologize for the delay, or the drink mishap. I would never return to this place. I have family in this industry, and I also used to work in restaurants. Waiting 20 minutes for a mgr whose job is to make sure guests are happy, was unacceptable. The rude and unprofessional service, and way we were spoke to alone would be enough to never return.

Great place and unique atmosphere. Drinks were excellent. However the arrangement of tables were right in the middle of all the people standing at the bar. Felt very claustrophobic.

The place is beautiful and the ambiance is great!
It's beautifully decorated, the servers all wear these beautiful Hawaii-like dresses!
The cocktails are awesome! They're almost artistic, served in beautiful mugs, with fire, lights, and the whole thing! They are also quite expensive though!
Food is alright, they only have snacks and finger food.
Service was great and always timed perfectly! Your server will always show up when you're ready for another drink.
I'd definitely recommend Three Dots and a Dash.
Oh, make sure you have reservations!

We went here for my boyfriends birthday for pre dinner drinks and appetizers! It was both of our first time here and we were both amazed with all the detail! Such an awesome experience and such cool drinks!! I wish it was just a smidge brighter, for it being only 545 I didn’t think it would be so dark but other than that we both LOVED our experience here and can’t wait to come back!!

I liked the speakeasy aspect of this place and it was very nicely decorated to the tiki theme. Even the alleyway where you enter has tiki torches lit up (we went at 2:30pm). The drinks we had were delicious and carefully curated—and didn’t taste like those sugary, crappy alcohol drinks we’ve come to expect. The ambience was great for dates and I highly recommend.

Food wasn’t good at all. Service was pretty slow. I ordered a $25 drink that was a quarter of the way filled and the rest was ice. Very disappointed especially considering this was for my birthday. Would not return.

We LOVE Three Dots and a Dash! Strong, tasty drinks, creative presentation, and good food. Only drawbacks are that the menu no longer has that great burger on it, and the lighting is pretty low at dining hours. I understand having very dim lights at bar times, but 6pm is a little early to be in the dark. Regardless, we love ...-

Overall, it as just ok. Drinks looks good and they are original. Food was good, but perhaps too greasy. Service was horrible. Even with a reservation they did not seat us until 25 minutes later when we asked the manager to intervene. The check in girl was rude and did not provide any information as for the delay. All she could say was we are on it, but that happened at 10,15,20,25 minute mark. When the manager intervened we finally got a table, which we had reserved anyways!!!

Great atmosphere and styling! Price of drinks is reasonable though the take-home tiki glasses seemed overpriced compared to similar bars in NYC and Disney properties. If they're that limited in quantity, I suggest stating how many are made in a run as I was disappointed that my two choices were unavailable, but everything else was super fun and amazing. Highly recommended.
