Trader Vic's - Emeryville
Mother's Day BrunchThis was our 3rd visit for brunch. Service was top notch the food taste and presentation were good but the variety and quality were less than our prior visits. We will not visit for a brunch again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite RestaurantMany fine memories of Trader Vics. It doesn't have the famous happy-hour snacks anymore, but still has the uplifiting atmosphere, attention, and ageless, delicious menu.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a tiki-phile, I would haveAs a tiki-phile, I would have loved to see some more historic stuff and more of a polynesian menu, but the food was great, the service attentive and they gave us a free dessert because it was our honeymoon!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and friendly serviceShrimp and crab starters are delicious.

View is outstanding.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience two daysExcellent experience two days in a row. Shrimp and also chicken appetizers quite tasty.

Delicious!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHad dinner for my wife's birthday.Had dinner for my wife's birthday. Food was excellent. She had the lamb and I had the salmon. Started with the pupu platter that was fantastic. Great view and on a Wednesday night wasn't very crowded. Service was good not outstanding as it used to be. We hadn't been in a few years, but used to come all the time with my wife's parents who knew Freddie Fong a previous manager. Back then the service was impeccable. Overall a great night.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Terrific! Dinner withStill Terrific! Dinner with mai tai cocktails and a scenic bay view! There have been some menu changes for the better. Trader Vic's is still a terrific place to go. Love their Cosmo Tid-Bits, Indonesian Lamb and the wonderful Snowball for dessert! New menu changes were good- like the Tuna Poke and chicken with lettuce cups! Really worth the trip over the bay bridge from San Francisco! We will be back soon!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTrader Vics - is defintelyTrader Vics - is defintely for special occasions. Our bill for 2 ended up with tip at about $150. Drinks are awesome. Dinner choices - beware that they are different. They blend curry - pacfic tastes. Reservations are a must as the dining room is not overly large. The view is the marina and we watched the sunset. A little noisey - but also very friendly.
Every time we visit the area....this is our #1 choice!!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience from foodGreat experience from food to service to ambiance. will be back again if in the area4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Trader Vic's. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We actually stayed for three hours and enjoyed every part of it - the food, the service and the view.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSkip the Eater BuffetWe went to Emeryville Trader Vic's on Easter....
Well I love Trader Vic's, but the Easter Buffet was so so.
The pupus were great as always but the mahi mahi was way over cooked. For 50 bucks a person, it was overpriced, too.
Tip: skip the Easter buffet and go any on a day when they have the usual menu, which is great.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a very nice restaurantThis is a very nice restaurant and has a beautiful view. Very good service.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI hadn't been here since theI hadn't been here since the remodel about two years ago. Really enjoyed the decor and view. Food and service were great.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI have going to Trader Vic'sI have going to Trader Vic's since I was a little girl and always loved it. I hadn't been for quite a few years, but have rediscovered it...and it's as wonderful as I remember it. A few things have changed (no more little hibatchi's), but the food was wonderful! It's pricy, but worth every bite!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not like valet parkingDid not like valet parking would not let u park the car yourself so had to park on street which was ok. Requested window seat but was told already reserved which did not know that and does not specify on website.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to hang out onGreat place to hang out on a Friday afternoon. Beautiful view, great drinks and innovative food. If you are sensitive to extremely spicy food, however, be sure to inform your server!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWE ARRIVED FOR OUR RESERVATIONWE ARRIVED FOR OUR RESERVATION 45 MINUTES EARLY, AND THE HOSTESS WAS MOST GRACIOUS AND SEATED US IMMEDIATELY. SERVICE WAS ATTENTIVE WITHOUT BEING OVERBEARING. FOOD SELECTION WAS VARIED AND APPEALING. APPETIZER WAS DELICIOUS (CRISPY PRAWNS!'). THE TROPICAL DRINKS WERE NOT TOO SWEET AND NOT VERY STRONG, WHICH WAS FINE WITH US BUT OTHERS MIGHT OBJECT. LOVELY VIEW OVER THE YACHT HARBOR!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA person who eats out a lotThe food at Trader Vic's has improved over the past several months and was excellent during this visit. The waitress was quite friendly and provided very efficient service.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my first time thereIt was my first time there and I loved it. The decor was interesting and the food was great. I particulary liked the cocktail list and the regular kona coffee.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA classicThe calamari was among the best I've ever had. The coconut curry was adequate, but not great. The Mai Tais were, of course, fabulous.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever tire of dining hereAlthough I still miss the old Trader Vic's in San Francisco, it is well worth the trip to Emeryville to dine here. So glad that most of the old favorites are on the menu along with some new dishes to try. Happy that the remodel kept the spirit of Trader Vic. Will return again and again.11/22/2012 12:00:00 AM
