As a weekly regular I always look forward to an evening at the Kon Tiki. The bartenders are very accommodating and will make off menu drinks, give great suggestions, and are fun to chat with. The food is amazing, and chef Manny has created a menu that pairs perfectly with the cocktails. Great vibe all around!

I had the burger here and while it isn't classic tiki by any means, I've got to say it was an amazing burger. Probably the best thing inside this place, which is a high bar considering the drinks are also fabulous.

Excitedly visited during a business trip to the Bay before the holidays. The decor is an upgrade over Longitude, though built on what was already in place. The drinks were adequate. They were prepared well using quality ingredients, but they fell a little short if my expectations. There was a Kon-Tiki grog, but it was not memorable, and nothing on the menu was a standout. I found myself missing the Peter Love Grog from Longitude.

Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable (nice improvement from the previous establishment). We met one of the owners briefly (by request) and he seemed earnest, but preoccupied. Understandable for a bar in it's first month or so.

The crab Rangoon dip was a disappointment; it came in a little aluminum pan that looked like it came out of an Eazy-Bake oven, and with too few chips. Also, it wasn't great. I had just ordered the same thing at my local Tiki bar (Archipelago, in DC), and had my socks knocked off. Few vegetarian options (especially considering Longitude was famous for having many excellent choices).

A perhaps minor quibble: As a big fan of the book, "Kon-Tiki", there doesn't seem to be any connection here. No flavor text on the menu, nada. Maybe this will come in time.
