    I always love the drinks and atmosphere at Jungle Bird. This visit was my first time experiencing Sippin' Santa, and I plan to return to try the rest of the Christmas cocktails.

    Good service, food was great. I ordered two cocktails, the first one was nothing like the menu described so I was disappointed in that one but the second one was good. Overall it was a fine experience and I would return.

    This was my first time at The Jungle Bird and it was very enjoyable. The decor is great and so are the interesting cocktails. I’m visiting tiki bars around the world and I wasn’t disappointed in Sacramento. The Hell’s Bucket was great!

    I specifically asked to be moved from the table next to the restroom. The host came back and seated us at the next closest table to the restroom. She ruined a date. It’s sucks because I have had many great experiences here in the past. The heavy blonde woman with excessive make up killed this place

    Service was very good, cocktails delicious, but very little dinning options. It’s a Tiki bar, so main focus is on the drinks & ambiance. We had drinks & appetizers, and everything on the PuPu platter was tasty. We also ordered fries, which were very bland (frozen shoestring style fries). Great location for drinks. Go before or after dinning elsewhere.

    We had a reservation… stood at the front for at least 10 mins. Finally got sat, another 15 mins and no one came by so we got up and went to the bar. Once at the bar we were taken care of.. but I wasnt sure if they were under staffed but something was weird. Drinks were ok but the pu pu platter was fun and tasty and we left.

    The drinks were good. Food was not. Very very dark and loud loud music. Bathroom dirty and smelly. I got the impression it was so dark in there because you don't want to look to close at anything. It's a dive bar not a restaurant.

    Went for drinks and dinner for my birthday. The staff was great. It did get crowded as the night went on, but the service and food/drinks were still great. We’d probably skip the chicken katsu next time but would do the loco moco and pupu platter again for sure.

    This place is decorated like a tiki room but is very dark. The Pu Pu platter was just small appetizers you could buy at Costco warmed up and put on a platter. The drinks are very good and service was excellent. Lots of empty tables on a Saturday night but you have to have a reservation to eat here. Not sure I would return.

    Went to jungle bird to celebrate my husband’s and My anniversary. We Waited over a half hour for our drinks. Our appetizers came and were consumed long before they arrived. Food was really good and we planned to stay for dinner and multiple drinks but the lack of attention that we received from our server was extremely off putting. By the time our drinks finally arrived we were pretty much over it and since our long awaited drinks ended up being pretty much just ice with about 2 gulps of liquid we decided to leave and go elsewhere. It was a shame because we’d been really excited to try out the establishment

    I love visiting this bar! Anytime at night I would recommend making a reservation because it gets pretty packed. I love all rum drinks while My boyfriend drinks whatever ipa is on tap- but we can both agree that we love the food. The spam fried rice is our absolute favorite- we recently Tried the katsu and also loved that plate.

    I didn't try the food, but people who did said the chicken was dry. The best drink here is the Painkiller. Seriously my favorite cocktail in sacramento. I also love that you can adjust the liquor amount. It comes with 2oz, but tastes the best with 3oz.
