, and has been the company's flagship restaurant since it opened in 1972. The Emeryville Trader Vic's is positioned near the end of a spit in San Francisco Bay, and has beautiful views of the nearby marina and city lights across the water.
The Emeryville Trader Vic's closed at the end of April 2010 for renovations, and reopened on September 28, 2010. The newly-refreshed Trader Vic's Emeryville has a stronger focus on tiki decor, and works to strike the balance between the sunny blue marina view and the moodiness of a traditional Tiki bar. Many of the carvings, lighting and other decorative elements have come from other, now-closed Trader Vic's restaurants from around the globe.
The restaurant is large, with several banquet rooms available for private parties. There is a large bar area near the entrance, and two dining rooms at the back of the restaurant.

My first TV experience and it couldnít have been better. The food was decent, the drinks were good and the decor is top notch. When I went to buy some merchandise the hostess told me they were out of mai tai glasses and the manager saw how sad I looked so she took one from the bar stock for me. She didnít have to do that but she knows that stuff is important to nerds like us so she was really sweet.

Yeah, its corporate, but love Trader Vic's longtime. Good special occassion place. Live band was great! Can't beat sun setting on harbor view unless U go to tropics. Only downside is weak drinks....as in Kool-Aid with an umbrella. I'm a super light weight & zero buzz. What's up Trader Vic? Kick it down!
