Drinks were very pricey but that's where the mai tai was invented so we can say we had one there. Bartenders were very friendly. Décor was outdated.

For a hotel of the class of the Beverly Hilton this restaurant is a disgrace. It's decoration is old and dated and the food does not deserve the name. It's not the fault of the friendly waiters, they know what they serve, but the chef is either on vacation or he left in disgust. This was about.dinner The very expensive... More

Food was good but not worth the price. I would bring any friends or family members visiting here but I wouldn't proactively come here. I spent $50 even after the Groupon deal! I would have to say thought that the staff was extremely polite and helpful. Thanks but no thanks.

We ate at Trader Vic's before going to the Staple center for a hockey game. Great food at good prices. They even had a happy hour before the game.

Closed earlier this month. Surprised it lasted this long. Los Angeles, Palo Alto, Phoenix, and Chicago locations are closed. The only ones left are Emeryville Portland, and Atlanta. There is also a location in the Beverly Hills Hilton, but that location does not have a restaurant.

Decided to close out our evening at Trader Vic's. A group of us stopped in and I had a hankering for an Original Mai Tai. While waiting for it to arrive, the oddest crew appeared before my eyes. A pub crawl of Trekkies. Right there in their red shirts, phasers in hand. This was obviously their last stop as they... More

We popped in for a flight or "surfboard" of Mai Tais and appetizers. Amazing inventive puu puu platter with fab coconut shrimp. I did not care for the house Ma Tai, which was a lot of fruit juice and rum, but the 1947 version was a gin lover's dream! Everyone went crazy for the Guava version and we gobbled up... More

My wife and I wanted to try something different and Trader Vic's provided that. The waiter was outstanding and recommended two wonderful meals.
