Trader Vic's - Emeryville
Need to book at 8:15 PM?
Just the best from parking to disembarking.
Great ambience, location and food.
TraderVics food is outstanding, from the appetizers to the entree! Great setting, and wait staff is attentive and friendly. One of our favorite places to dine!
For cocktails only, food over-priced for what you get.
Wonderful meal! Great service
Always a fun time! Server was very nice but must have been new! Bar staff as always were wonderful!
Let me first say that we absolutely love going to Trader Vic‘s. Tonight was The exception. We ordered salad and it never came we ordered two desserts and we only got one and one of the other desserts was not prepared correctly. We never received wet towels after our appetizers. And food service was exceptionally slow. Our waitress did not get our orders right for the entrée or for dessert. It was a very disappointing evening that we had never experienced at trader Vic‘s before. It was my wife’s birthday and we had another couple with us and we were all disappointed.
Very slow: an hour for an appetizer and another hour for the entree.
Very nice dinner, right on the water well done by everyone
Birthday dinner for daughter. One of her favorite places. Nice location. View of the bay at sunset. Free valet parking. 4 of us. Ordered the appetizer platter for 2 and this was enough combined with their flat breads and peanut butter. 2 of us had the succulent rack of lamb (very rich). A real wow. One had a fillet. One had grilled salmon. Server was a charming woman. Good round of Mai Tais. Complimentary Birthday ice cream was superior quality!
Enjoyable evening! Pricey! If you know ahead of time that the bill will be a chunk of change, and you don’t worry about it, this place delivers atmosphere, cocktails and food worthy of a birthday celebration!
A forever favorite
We have been to Trader Vic’s many times, but this was the first time by ourselves (as a couple). As always the service was wonderful just as it has been when we have dined with friends. All the staff are friendly and are helpful in making suggestions. The food and drinks were impeccable. So fresh and flavorful. We look forward to our next time.
Great food and service. Felt like an island getaway.
It’s my close friend bday and he enjoyed he’s food and the place! Thank you Opentable and Trader Vic’s ! ♥️♥️♥️🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Only issue was it was very hot because AC was not working properly. But love this place
For a perfect retro vibe, great drinks and view, check this place out. Went for lunch and enjoyed a salad, so did not explore the entire menu. Excellent service and the ambiance was over the top. Can't go wrong on a beautiful day on the bay! And not to forget, valet parking and easy freeway access! All made for a perfect dining experience. I will be back. Thank you.
Always great. Drinks are excellent. Food is good. Atmosphere is fun! We love it.
Amazing thank you!
Amazing views. Service was a bit slow, but the views and food made up for it.
have not been to T V in years...had a fine meal with great service! Love Maitre D Mario!!!
An institution, you can’t beat the Mai Tai’s, pupu’s and bongo bongo soup. Plus anything cooked in their wood oven. Great place to go with friends as we did. Enjoyed by all.
The only issue we had was the check-in experience. The other couple arrived before us, checked-in and told the host they were going to wait in the bar.
We arrived, we were not told our friends had arrived so we grabbed a table by the window and waited. Good thing one of our friends had to use the restroom and saw us sitting there!
Other than that the night was perfection.
Have loved this place for decades. After a Mai tai all is good.
Easy going. Friendly service and staff
My daughter and I had a wonderful night. The service was great, our servers were very, the food?
YUMMY! Cocktails also! We’ll be sure to return again!
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner here at trader vics. Everything about our visit was exceptional. Our server was very attentive and made sure we both felt welcomed. We will be returning for many many years to come!
You pay for the ambiance here. The food is not worth the price and the service is terrible.
Atmosphere was great! Food was also very good! The wood fired pork chop was killer! The service was nice but not ever around. We would have loved to get a second round of cocktails but never saw our server from the time we got our food and finished. Also had no birthday celebration at the end. He was just extremely busy. Great location though and had an excellent seat by the window!
Delightful! A quick trip to Polynesia. Try the Poke, spinach oyster soup and cheese sticks with your Mai Tai... ahhh.
Our reservation was at 6:00. We still didn’t have our food at 7:30. The food was so-so. The view of the SF Bay is beautiful.
Way cool vibe
Fun for a group, date or special occasion
Valet only parking
They don’t honor happy hour in the restaurant-ONLY in the bar and staff doesn’t accommodate
Great place to take friends to. Not noisy ? Easy to talk with friends snd not feel rushed by staff to finish and leave.
Lovely setting. Love Tiki Culture
Food great, service great.
There was only 2 things wrong with our experience... It just so happens to be with the 2 things we specifically asked for when making the reservations! We asked to be seated by a window-We were sat in the middle of the dining room and had to ask to be re seated and I said it was for a Birthday.Which was never recognized by anyone in the building. BUT they celebrated numerous other Birthdays all around us. Food and service was really good, but they obviously don't pay attention to requests!! For the price's they charge, that is a major issue to skip. By the way, it was our first time there. We all agreed we would go back for the food and the view, but you can never make up a first impression. Disappointing
Such a great place.
Great ambiance. However, our reservation was at 6pm and the food wasn't on the table until 7:15. This was for a party of six. Server could have been more attentive. It wasn't completely full either so not sure what delay was about.
My son’s 18th birthday with my mom who took me here 36 years ago when I turned 18 . Always a great time here
It was a pleasure returning to Trader Vic’s. When I was a teenager, I was blown away when I was invited to Trader Vic’s in Oakland more than 55 years ago. I have not forgotten that experience of fine dining. The drinks are still exceptional, there freshness of the fish and the special cooking in the ovens. Very enjoyable, especially for a special occasion. Service was excellent.
Birthday lunch. Lovely views, food and service.
Fantastic tropical drink selection, along with fun Hawaiian inspired foods as well. We (group of 4 adults) had very good service and enjoyed our time very much. Will be returning in the future for sure!
