Trader Vic’s is one of my favorite restaurants that we frequent 4+ times a year (too expensive so we go for special occasions) and it’s always been exceptional. However our last visit was very disappointing. Drinks - I’ve never had cocktails anywhere with so much ice. When the server brought our drinks the ice was higher than the liquid. For $12 + for a cocktail, there was wayyy too much ice and barely any kick. I’ve never had a bad drink at TV’s until this visit. Some of the food was very disappointing too. The crab artichoke dip has changed and it’s now a very small portion for a lot of $$. Our favorite pork sliders were almost all bun & very little meat. We had to ask for the crackers and peanut dip which are usually always on the table & we he had to ask several times for refills. The dinner portions seemed smaller too. I always get the Mahi Mahi & it was a lot smaller than before. Another surprise was how bad our waitress was. She kept forgetting when we asked for things which was extremely annoying & a table of 4 had to share ONE MENU, they were short menus!!! We spent almost $300 and all of us were disappointed. We will be back & we really hope this was just a fluke bad experience.
Were there several years ago and was great. Lacking this time won't be back. Was looking for the menu you presented on line, couldn't find it. Disappointed. I will say the Chillean Sea Bass was outstanding.
We really enjoyed the rack of lamb and the original 1944 Trader Vics Mai Tao.
we made a reservation and upon arrival to the restaurant , we were told we would have to give up our table at a certain time----not the best way to start the occasion.
we were attended to promptly for drinks and appetizers, and they arrived very quickly. dinner was another story-we waited nearly an hour from our appetizer to our dinner. when they food did arrive, it seemed as tho it had been sitting for a bit, as it was lukewarm at best. filets were overcooked, sides were nearly cold. service staff was very nice but not very attentive. restaurant was not crowded so uncertain what the reason. overall not a great experience for the price. i won't go again, nor will i recommend.
Lovely setting. Outstanding service and excellent food.
We celebrated our anniversary here and it was wonderful. The vintage-tiki vibe was perfect. Food was outstanding. Even had my first Mai-Tai which was fantastic. Great for any occasion.
The Chilean Sea Bass was excellent!! And the mai tai is always a good go to drink!
Our view was fantastic, items on menu was delicious. We we're there celebrating my new book coming out. . .such a great moment. Service was personal and thoughtful on the part of our wait person.
We had a fun time with friends, and got to say goodbye to Claudette!
The mai tais old way were great as usual, and the Chilean Sea Bass was delicious.
Great food, service and ambiance.
