    Nostalgia and occasionally great food are good reasons to go. Inconsistencies mar what could be a memorable experience. For the price, the food and service should be flawless.

    I have loved Trader Vic's for years. The service is always god, and the atmosphere is fun. I am not a chef but I do have high standards as my parents owned restaurants for years and I am an avid home cook. We were seated in the far back of the restaurant essentially alone. That's weird enough in an empty restaurant, but it was the server rotation so ok, sure. Our server was great. No complaints at all there. QR code menus are not safe with respect to hackers and security of your devices. Restaurants need to stop this nonsense. When the bill for two is $88, you can afford to print some menus. The food has gotten really limited. There are many fewer choices now. Back during DragonCon we came in with a large group and my food was actively bad. But I gave them a second shot. DrgaonCon is super busy... only the restaurant wasn't even half full. So maybe they are chronically short staffed like everyone. But this was a normal night, so I expected better food. The appetizer was 5 shrimp, which cost $18. It was very good although a little over cooked. It was fried in panko, and very dark brown, but not burned. Just overcooked. Shrimp is touchy, and doesn't need to be overcooked like that. My dinner was just ok. It was the Kung Pao Chicken. Just like at DragonCon, the rice was literally crunchy. Chef, jasmine rice is naturally a little sticky when it's done right. It's not like boil in bag or basmati. Please stop under-hydrating and undercooking the rice because you don't don't want it to be sticky. We buy Jasmine by the 50 lb bag and I probably cook at least 2-4 pounds a week for various asian and African style cooking. I don't want to eat crunchy rice! Seriously. Second time since the pandemic, and I know they are understaffed, but there's better food at a lower price in a more friendly and less empty restaurant a short walk from the Hilton. Stick to the very fine Mai Tais and other drinks and a couple of appetizers at Trader Vic's.

    We had reservations at another restaurant at the Hilton and after waiting for 10 minutes for a drink, we enjoyed our drink and left and headed to Trader Vic’s. We could not get a reservation for an hour so we sat at the bar and enjoy a couple drinks and had the absolute best service at the bar, not to mention their drinks were amazing. Our dinner was delicious! I could not even finish my steak, it was huge, tender, and cooked to perfection. My boyfriend has the lamb and it was amazing also. I promise I will be going back soon. Great service, great food, great atmosphere, what more could you ask.

    A restaurant should warn you if they know they are understaffed and backed up in the kitchen so we can decide whether or not we want to wait 30 minutes for drinks, an hour for appetizers, and an hour and a half for the meal, which part of was cold. Way too expensive for the experience

    Our 3rd visit this year and the night was excellent as always. Drinks are top notch (the bartenders make the best Mai Tai’s), the hostess remembered us from our last trip and was very personable. Sam, our waiter was great, gave us plenty of time to relax and enjoy the experience. We love the tiki decor and Trader Vic’s history. Wish we lived closer, we’d be here weekly. Highly recommend.

    I've been dining here for over 30 years, and it has always been a favorite. This visit was disappointing. While the service was excellent, the menu has been drastically curtailed (2 pieces of paper?!), and the quality was only fair. The Chinese ovens are shut down. I am not sure what changed management-wise, but it is definitely for the worse. Not sure I'd return.

    The server was excellent! The food is dismal. Unfortunately I expected the taste to be above average. It didn't meet my expectations. For the price we're paying, it should've been delicious. My noodles were dry and lamb was not med rare as requested.

    I have been to Trader Vic's several times and this is the first time I have come away disappointed. Service was slow and the food was . . . ordinary. The custom peanut butter was far and away the best thing we were served. The Curry Tofu was just what you would expect, curry tofu, nothing special. The miso salmon gave no hint of being smoked and was dry, over cooked. Dessert was nice and the drinks strong and to the point. I was struck as soon as I walked into the Hilton that I didn't smell the restaurant. I guess a sign that nothing was being actively smoked.

    The food was absolutely scrumptious. The service was superb. In the beginning, there was a little bit of mixup with the number of guests arriving all at the same time! But the hostess took care of that really quickly. And we were off to our tables. The food was absolutely divine with nice portions!!!! The drinks were GREAT!!!! Would I eat here again? Absolutely! With a big hell YEAH!!!!

    Stephanie, our waitperson, was great! She provided great service and the food was fantastic as always. Always a great place to visit when in downtown ATL. Hostess at the stand needs to understand how the complimentary valet parking works...first she denied the existence of the validation stickers and then pulled out a sheet of them after much insistence.

    Seemingly, a lot of people was having a hard time finding the place inside the Hilton hotel. The direction was given to me and my guests was wrong twice. However, it’s to elevators you to take to get to the restaurant inside the building , the first one takes you upstairs & the 2nd one downstairs. My fried rice came out burnt the chef did recook my order . It was great . The overall experience was about a 3 1/3 or 4. Drinks was good hostess and waiter awesome !!!

    I try to work in a visit to Trader Vic's whenever I am in Atlanta. Over the years, I would estimate I have been there over 20 times. The restaurant has been in the same location since 1976 and has been running continuously save the year where they shut down during the COVID crisis. Last night, I went for the first time since 2018 and I'm happy to say the place is as awesome as all of my previous visits. The food and drinks are absolutely top notch, although they are far from cheap. Dinner for two last night with tip was $200. We had three cocktails between us, a salad, a starter and two entrees. My wife had two Mai Tai's, her favorite among the many excellent concoctions on the drink menu and the signature drink of the establishment. Can't ever beat the Mai Tai anywhere when it comes to rum-based mixed drinks. My wife said it tasted just as she remembered it pre-COVID. I opted for something different as I usually do, a cocktail new to me, the Trader Vic's Itch. It was a strong potion, but delicious. I sipped at it slowly throughout the evening so it didn't overwhelm me. I had the Trader Vic's salad which has always been consistently superb over the years. It's always made with the fresh ingredients and has a wonderful Javanese dressing on it. My wife and I split a Crab Rangoon appetizer. This is a signature Vic's dish that has also been consistency great over the years. For the entree, my wife had the salmon and I had the New York strip. Both were finished in the Chinese ovens that give them an incredibly unique flavor profile. I'm very picky about beef. I rarely eat it to begin with but when I do, it is only at a fine dining establishment and last night's strip was a mouthwatering explosion of flavor. Simply incredible. I finished the evening with a tasty dessert, Vic's version of the classic pineapple upside down cake Consistency is the key to Trader Vic's long term survival. How often does a restaurant that opened in 1976 still survive today?

    It is cute and well themed. We had our 1.5 y/o daughter with us and it took over an hr to get our food. They had one server for our section and a huge party. I would come again because the food and theming but if the service was equally as bad again I might not return as the bill was almost $150 and we ordered on alcohol. For that price I expect good service.
