"The service saw slow the food was even slower coming and it was not delivered at the same time
It was 10 minutes between the time the first meal arrived and the last
It was a busy night but to take over 2 hours the from the time we order until the meals arrived is poor service I will never go there again

"We had an amazing, as expected, meal at Trader Vic's in Jan. Everything was as advertised: good food, amazing drinks, great atmosphere... but don't sit by the windows in winter. The cold air that comes off of them is frigid and there is little to be done as the restaurant is almost always packed with reservations made weeks in advance. Have a mai tai or four to stay warm... it's worth it of you need an excuse to have the best mai tai ever!"

"We wanted to visit Trader Vic's because it is a a sort of throwback restaurant. The atmosphere was pretty and interesting. Our waiter was friendly and did a good job. The hostess who seated us was not up to the job. She did not look at us as she led us to our seats and never smiled. The food was average. The mixed drinks were awesome. All in all we had a good time and are glad we made made the trip."

"Thus place is dated but that's part of its charm. Think tiki bar in the 50's. The food is AMAZING and the drinks are delicious. You feel like you're on a beach vacation even though you're in downtown Atlanta."

"On a positive note, the drinks were good. After that it all fell apart. Nice server, but Tim Conway from Carol Burnett comes to mind. We were forgotten for about half an hour and had to ask someone to come see us. Ordered a group platter for $19.50, came on a cake plate, and had 2 pcs of about 4 items, Sysco food truck came to mind with each item. Fried rice was not fried rice, and the rest of the dinner would have been disappointing if I paid $5 for them from a Checkers Drive inn. The fact that each entrée was between $25 and $35 is shocking. How this place stays in business is unbelievable. Was always excited to experience Trader Vic's, this was not the experience I was expecting. Was not expecting a fine dining experience, even though the prices would suggest otherwise. There was nothing about this restaurant I could in good faith recommend."

"It was a slow Tuesday night, but the service and food were excellent. The filet from the Chinese oven was perfect."

"Living 200 miles outside Atlanta, I have gone to TV every 3-4 years for 30 years. Always happy with the drinks, food and service. Sadly, this was my last visit. I know the place is kitsch, but I've enjoyed it. The food is now less than mediocre. Egg rolls mushy and without enough filling. Wok fried seafood with vegetables should have been called fish stew. Very salty, limp, something not even Red Lobster would put out. Told the server we needed another minute to decide, she gave us 15. Place was nearly empty, they put us next to a table of eight. Way too many good places in Atlanta to spend another dollar here."

"The Atlanta Trader Vic's is one of the last remaining from its haydays of the 60s. Perfectly preserved, the restaurant is like a moment in time. Rightfully reknown for its tiki drinks, the food was surprisingly top notch.
Great decor, good food, fantastic drinks; what more do you need?

"We arrived early for our 10pm reservation. They were at least 1 hour behind, we chose to stay and have some drinks while we waited. It's New Years Eve, after all, we were looking forward to the drinks anyhow. This was our 1st clue that they were under prepared. I walked to the bar and got our 1st round, opened a tab by leaving my credit card there, not knowing that I would not see it again for several hours. It took 1 hour in line with my elbows on the bar to get our next round of drinks and could not cash out. They were over whelmed. No order to their madness at all. Meanwhile we get our table for dinner, over an hour late. We get our food, everything except desert taste the same. So we are still eating when 12am rolls around after only 2 rounds of drinks and not so good food. What a way to start the new year off. It takes another hour to finally get my credit card from the bar and pay my $157.00 meal. Not the New Years I was expecting."

"We have always gone to Trader Vic's as one of our go to places for special dinners, this was our 1 Year Anniversary Dinner. Food was great as always, was a little disappointed that they were out of the Cha Sui Pork Appetizer this is my favorite and was the first time I was ever told they were out. They were extremely busy with Holiday Parties and the Hotel that Trader Vics is in was the host hotel for the local Bowl Game Football Teams so I guess I can understand a rush on food but still disappointed. Drinks are great and food is great, we will go back."
