It saddens me greatly to write because typically I would direct my complaints to managers. I'm not sure what's going on with the restaurant but while the decor is still engaging and the steak was delicious.. the $21 platter for two was tasteless bland and limited. There was no word of acknowledgement of the guest whose birthday had been noted in the reservation in advance and the drinks were not served to The Birthday Guy in the coconut… We were told that "they only had a few of them". The server was efficient but not warm, the overall $200 per person experience could have been held in any chain restaurant. Given the fact the birthday guy absolutely loves the restaurant, is a Tiki fanatic, held his previous wedding and reception there, I brought a party of ten to his previous birthday tgere and he brings tons of people there for dinners and Dragon Con, it was disheartening. Maybe an off night but we left there sad about our visit after years of loyal patronage. P.S. I will say the Mai Tai was still a treat.

They make excellent drinks without alcohol. But the server warned me some were very sweet. She steered me to on that was just right.

Awesome does not even begin to describe the food at Trader Vic's. The smell enticed us from the minute we walked off the elevator. The peanut butter served with the crackers was a welcome change from "rolls & butter". The sampler platter we ordered as an appetizer would have easily been a meal for one. The pork was so moist and tender, I wished I had ordered it as the entree. But then our server brought out my bacon-wrapped scallops (as big as a baby's fist!) and my husband's lamb and that was the end of polite conversation. We were in gastronomical heaven!! No room for dessert but who needed it after that meal. The best meal I've had in a long time. Thanks, TV. You pushed all the right buttons.

My husband and I were in Hawaii last year, and our visit to Trader Vic’s made us feel like we were back...with even better food! Wonderful ambiance, warm and friendly staff, fabulous food - and mai tais, too!

The bartender and the waiter we had were very serious and seemed like they were not enjoying the job, such nice place need the crew to be more dynamic and friendly. Also, it was very quiet around the bar when we walked in, a little bit of background music doesn’t hurt for such fun theme. Drinks were amazing, we had the Mai Tai. The food was good too, we got the chef’s fried rice and the hanger steak.

Seated immediately, friendly host. Waiter was kind and attentive. Fried rice is the best I’ve ever eaten! My dinner guest filet needed seasoning before being placed on grill. It was my guest birthday and I made a reservation and made the Trader Vic aware of the birthday and no one came over to help me celebrate! No biggies! The drinks were delicious and refreshing.

We had a great time. I am nostalgic for the whole Hawaiian tiki vibe from the 70’s and this place really hit the mark. The spare ribs were awesome! The filet was good if not great. The MaiTai’s were very strong if not a bit sweet. The service was excellent, we did not like our original seat and they were very accommodating. Overall we had a great time! We would definitely come back for the kitsch and nostalgia, if not the food.

Staff were amazing, but food is mediocre at best. The fork tender ribs we couldn’t even chew off the bone with our teeth. Small portions and bland for the most part. Only saving grace were the Mai Tais, garlic spinach and chocolate cake. Atmosphere is a bit tired, could use some updating for a more upscale, modern Tahitian feel. Staff were great with my kids and very attentive.

Overall we had a nice experience and our server Rena was great!. However she we spread thin (she needed more help) food service was slow. We waited close to an hour for our food but when we received it, it was very good.

It was like being in Hawaii without the expensive plane ticket. The food was delicious as were the drinks, and our server was wonderful! It’s pretty pricey though running us at $135 for two adults and one kid before tax, but it was well worth it for the experience. We were there for Father’s Day for my husband as this was on his bucket list.

Son’s 16th. Also we are native Atlantans but had never been. The restaurant was not busy. Wait staff seemed less than enthused & certainly didn’t make the occasion special. The lobster I had was the literal worst I’ve ever had. Anywhere. Cocktails were nice. Som’s steak was good but very undercooked. Disappointing. Especially for his big day.

Setting was nicely themed, food was great, and drinks were well made. Interior is old and whole restaurant runs a bit cold. But service was great and it is a special historical site for Tiki culture. It is very expensive!

Trader Vic's is way more than a place to eat. It's a first rate, classic, themed dining experience. The decor is tiki, the service is exceptional and the food and beverages were perfect.
