Trader Vic's Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: Trader Vic's takes diners to Polynesia, with plenty of fruit-based mixed drinks --- mai tais, mojitos, Pimm's cups and such --- that aim to capture the flavors of these exotic islands. The atmosphere suggests a movie set, with thatched roofs, decorative bamboo and a faux-tropical environment.

Food & Drinks: But surprisingly, the food is quite good, especially the fish and seafood. Some are "old standby" dishes, such as crab rangoon (cream cheese and crab in a deep-fried wonton wrapper), as this audience looks for familiar fare. A longtime favorite, the rack of lamb is still cooked in the huge wood-burning oven, but now is served with grilled pineapple and chutney instead of its former peanut sauce. The duck breast is cooked in the same oven, then briefly fried and steamed, before being shredded tableside and wrapped moo shu-style. The Hong Kong-style fish is a winner, made with sea bass aromatic with ginger and soy. The wine list consists mostly of Californian selections, some Champagnes and a few French, Chilean and Italian wines. The overall experience is fun and kitschy. Happy Hour lovers will find themselves quite content in the lively bar.
