“Trader Vic's Is Awesome”

Great as usual, but I hope they were just using plastic cups because it was a busy weekend - glassware is one reason to go.

“A trip to the islands!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Overall a fun place to go. May be a little over-priced but the decorations and theme are well-done!
Fun mixed drinks ($9-12 each). Dinner is mostly seafood and I recommend the double lobster tails. Wasabi mashed potatoes are yummy and not spicy! Green beans are also good!
The pad thai noddles were not that good.
I was at a table of 10 and the service seems a little bit inattentive but it wasn't bad.

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Trader Vics is a fun place to go. Dinner is good albeit a little overpriced. The Mai Tai Lounge is great when they have live bands. It is a fun place to gather with friends and listen to music and of course, drink Mai Tai's.

“Awesome Drinks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

4+ pages of mixed drinks in tons of fun glasses. Food was good. People at my table really enjoyed the scallops and the mahi mahi. Stay clear of the appetizers, especially the crab rangoons. Very small portion and really no filling in them.

Recommended drinks:
Trader Vic's Stinker - Super smooth for a rum drink but strong! Definitely our group's favorite drink
MaiTai - They make them super strong! If you need a quick buzz - get the 151 float for $13!
Island Puka Puka - Super strong, good value at $11


Cons - Our group of about 12 people - Ki our server was more interested in getting everyone else drink refills instead of our checks. We had to wait an extra HOUR to get our check!! And, he also didn't write down what we all had, he had to ask each of us over what we had to eat and drink.
The place closes super early - like last call is at 11:30 and food stops at 10:30.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

the staff are great. very attentive and friendly service. the crackers appetizer (one kind is housemade) with the peanut butter dip is delicious. the BBQ rib though was not tender, but was of a good portion. nice setting and atmosphere.
