I was super excited to try Trader Vic's. A girlfriend decided we would all meet there for dinner to celebrate her birthday. I think most of my disappointment was situational. The prices were higher than I was expecting, they were out of the one thing on the menu that I wanted to order, and all but one stall in the women's rest room was out of tp. Two of my friends could not read the menu because it was too dark, using the table candles to light their way to ordering. So I wasn't happy with the experience.
On the positive side, the food was wonderful, the drinks tasty, and they provided a free regular menu dessert item for my friends birthday.
I might try Trader Vic's again for lunch in the future. Maybe the lunch prices will be more to my liking, the light of day will allow us to read the menu, and the food and bathrooms might be stocked.
