    We came before dinner for drinks on our anniversary and it was a little weird when we walked in and we just kind of stood by the “please wait to be seated” sign longer than seemed necessary. We had a reservation and were seated in the back. The place is cute, the music is fun and the drinks and Dole Whip were good. However it was a little weird that the three parties who came after us and were seated around us all had babies and little kids which kind of ruined the atmosphere… NGL. I don’t really mind kids in restaurants but it was weird in a bar and probably means I won’t go back.

    This was our first time coming here and honestly we won’t be back unless for a specific occasion. It was nice but it was clear that they were all about ambience and not much else.

    Place was smaller than expected and service was not that great… was given water in a pitcher while everyone else around us was served by their waiter. Had a little spill and asked for a clean up but I was given a towel to clean it up myself instead of the waiter doing it for us or at least offering to do so. Some food was better than other items… some bland some flavorful. My drink personally was not pleasing at all tasted like mint when there was no mint in the detail at all. They only had one beer on tap since they’re kegs were blown out. Overall wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

    Server never checked on us, never asked if we wanted more drinks or anything and we had to flag her down anytime we needed anything at all. Service was slow which is tolerable as long as we feel like they haven’t forgotten us and they explain the delay. It felt like we were completely forgotten by our waitress. Disappointing. Drinks were pricey considering it was mostly ice.

    Did the Disney theme and it was really disappointing. They ran out of two of the main snacks. We got two drinks and they tasted so bad, which sucked cause we wanted to sit and enjoy them but we had to just plug our nose and drink. The turkey leg and churros were good at least. We sat in the back area and it was crazy hot, all the “Disney” stuff was up front (Aka a projector on the wall of Disney characters) and the bar/fun was up front too. We had made reservations so it sucked that we got stuck in the back when in reality everyone who made reservations should have been up front. They definitely hyped it up too much for what it was and I almost feel like they are taking advantage of the fact that adults love Disney things. Definitely won’t go back for Disney night and probably not a regular night either lol

    The drinks were subpar for a tiki bar. They used premade lime juice full of added citric acid and corn syrup. You could taste the chemicals, no wonder everyone was ordering Pina colada slushy drinks. I was at wits end and couldn’t even finish my drinks so I ordered a painkiller because there’s no lime in it…there’s suppose to be pineapple, orange, coconut cream and rum. It tasted like coconut cream, a large amount of simple syrup and rum! No bueno! It was suppose to be a special Disney event, yet they sold all of their event mugs the day before?? I mean come on, if you have a special event save some for the actual event day!

    Attended for the Disneyland pop up. Overall we were pleased with our visit; drinks and food are reasonably priced. Only complaint is patio seating is lacking in ambiance. This is the third time I have been seated on the back patio (with a reservation) at a table that gets full sun. There are no fans. Would much prefer a table with chairs (versus picnic table) and some music, tiki decorations, something. That patio feels like an beer garden and not a tiki bar. Please please improve that space.

    We went to the Disneyland pop up and our server, Angelo, made the experience unforgettable. I don’t know if he’s manager, but he should get a promotion if not because he’s a world class guy all-around. He saved my special edition Cheshire Cat mug for me after I left without taking it. I came back hours later, feeling very foolish and certain my mug had been awarded to less forgetful guests, but it was still there waiting for me. Thanks Angelo! 🤗

    Disneyland was the theme and we were here for it. Great selection of creative cocktails (I had a Wish Upon a Star and friends had 100 Acre Wood). We shared a pu pu platter, with additional sides. We even ordered cocktails from the regular menu. Big shout out to our harried server(s). They did their best to inform us when the ordering system glitched and the kitchen didn't get all of our orders and when cocktails on the regular menu were not available. Due to the slight inconvenience to us, our server adjusted our bill. In turn, we generously tipped because we love this place and the employees are stellar.

    Terrible experience. Music was so loud I couldn't hear my wife from across the tiny table we sat at in a dark corner. We didn't have our drink order taken until 15 minutes after sitting down. We ordered the coconut shrimp to share, and two drinks. The coconut shrimp came out cold. The drinks were so strong we took sips of water after each sip of our drink to wash it down. I definitely won't be coming back to this place.

    First off, the ambiance lighting at the dining tables inside were way too dark I couldn't barley see my boyfriends face and it was his birthday dinner :( I wish we would have sat outside. The food was great but I was surprised to find out there was no birthday drink or birthday desert. If I were to go back I would just sit at the bar and enjoy the crazy drinks :)

    Not the greatest experience. One item was not included on the pupu platter, with no communication about why. More of the other items were included, which did make up for the omission, but that wasn’t communicated until we asked about the missing skewers. Service was slow, and our server forgot to place my drink order so my dinner came and no drink showed up. The first drink I ordered, the headhunters grog, which I get each time I dine here, was not even close to the normal way it tastes. This is the second time in a row our experience at The Jungle Bird did not live up to our expectations/prior experiences there. I think it will be quite a while before we return, unfortunately. I want to love this place but I just can’t.
