DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY! I saw good reviews about this place so I booked but it was horrendous. Firstly everyone in there was so drunk people couldn't walk in a straight line let alone the two people I found on the floor near the toilets. They charged us $10 per person for live music that wasn't mentioned when we booked. The music was poor, the fact that it rains made it slightly more entertaining. The food was worse than a Chinese take out! Cheap ingredients, full of salt and MSG's and so expensive e.g sweet and sour pork (no rice) $28. I happily spend $300-400 on a meal that's good but this place is a total rip off! The cocktails again were cheap and just all based around how much alchol was in them. Maybe a 21st birthday venue but that's all I would recommend this place for.
certainly worth a cicst if you've never been. they gave really good drinks. great ambiance. my recommendation would be for the drinks. the food was lukewarm annd meh. the drinks made the evening. great wait staff too
recap.. go foer the tiki drinks!
I took my boyfriend out for several special occasions. At first, it was very complicated to communicate with this restaurant. I was calling to tell them I will be ten minutes late due to traffic. I was so nervous my table I reserved will be given to someone else. I was upset coming into the place. The place itself is so beautiful and breath taking. I was happy I still had my table I reserved but a bit disappointed that it was not the table I really wanted. I wanted next to the water next to the live music especially for it being over a month reservation. It was still a good view just difficult to take pictures without someone being in the picture. The waiter we had was so nice and friendly and helped us out with our decisions and picture taking. The food is incredible!!There was no left over to take home. The drinks are pricey but worth it. It is really strong! It is a kick every sip. The live music was the cherry on top! The band played good music and very upbringing. It had me dancing in my seats even though I wanted to stand up and dance. I think if the seating arrangement were spaced out I could dance without being in someone way. At the end, I talked to the manager and she was really nice and understood my concerns. She helped me for future help. Overall, really good place to go to. I am coming back with family and friends. My boyfriend was very happy with his surprise leaving him with a smile on his face, filled tummy and buzzed. haha.
Our server, David, was amazing! It was my grandmother's birthday and he REALLY made her feel special. The band was on point with their 70's funky beats, so it was great for my mother too! It was great atmosphere, but the food was just ok. The fried whole snapper was the only dish that I would order again.
I love tiki bars and this is a classic! Inside of the Fairmount, great neighborhood, a true landmark. Read up on the old days of this bar and you will want to come seek out history. Amazing experience with the food, drinks and service. We will be back!
The food wasn't all that great, but the overall experience was fun. A change for having a night out and leaving the baby at home.
Was super excited to go to Tonga, but its just an overpriced rainforest cafe with a "tiki" theme. I could drink with the best of em however I had trouble downing the pre-made swill they were pushing for $15+. Lets go to the food which they were out of 3 things on their limited menu. Food was ok but I had indigestion for hours after. Oh yeah, and if you see the 3 piece cover band, you gotta pay 10 bucks. Have fun!
Fun ambiance for apps and drinks. Terrible for dinner as nothing was tasty except the poke appetizer.
The place is a San Francisco staple, the waiters are a hit or a miss though
I rarely if ever leave a negative review as I always feel that most establishments are doing their best. However, this was the biggest waste of money in a long time. We scheduled a party of 6 persons for a 60th birthday party. The food was atrocious. Overpriced and tasteless. The draw is the band that is excellent and the retro-environment which hasn't changed in 40 years. With cover charge, drinks and tip, over $700 for 6 people. Ouch!
