"While there is nothing 'spectacular' about the food at Trader Vic's, it's the setting and the atmosphere that makes the place. It's like going back in time to a 1970s Tiki bar and restaurant. That said, the food was perfectly fine."

"When we were asked if we wanted to sit in the lounge or the dining area I asked which one is quieter. Our host said the dining area — it was not. It was completely packed and very loud. My partner and I both agreed we would've rather sat in the lounge. When we stopped to have a drink it was so much quieter."

"Starting with the service, they always seem to know what they're doing and service is always on point.
The menu is not your everyday menu and is always something different. Food is well prepared and flavor combinations are always a wonderful surprise.
I need to remind myself to dine here more often!"

"I have dined at Trader Vic's in SF for decades (now closed, of course)...but the quality of food at Emeryville has declined. The food was greasy and very ordinary. If it didn't have that venue, it would not, in my opinion, still be open. The service was very good and the ambiance is what it is known for, but the food was very disappointing."

"TOTALLY NICE AMBIANCE FOR A BIRTHDAY!!!! W enjoyed the peaceful view of the harbor and lovely city lights shimmering on the water. Quite lucky that the rain stopped and the fog lifted for the special evening to celebrate 3 birthdays. Recommend their mai tai cocktails. Loved the fried calamari appetizer- really tender and flavorful. Our table ordered 6 entree orders. Recommend highly the Chilean sea bass with rice. Disappointed with the rack of lamb with Singapore noodles which did not fit well with the lamb itself; rice might have worked better. Salmon was slightly over cooked so not as moist as can be. Service a little slow that night with the filled restaurant. But still overall, highly recommend this restaurant with their themed menu and decor, great night views of city and harbor lights, serene atmosphere with a flair, GREAT mai tais generally good food."
