+ Trader Vic’s Island Grill hosts VIP party
The Sarasota paparazzi were out and about over the weekend and seen scoping out Trader Vic’s Island Grill at its VIP party — even SNN 6 meteorologist and Sarasota’s favorite You Tuber Justin Mosely was spotted darting around the restaurant shaking hands with co-owners Mike and Bill Kodra.
Trader Vic’s held its grand opening Monday, Jan. 18. Whatever you do, don’t skip the fried pineapple dessert.

- NEVER GO BACK. I really think that the positive comments posted on this site are from trader vic's staff or management. SERVICE- Lets start with the basics. If you order a drink it should be served with a cocktail napkin so you don't end up with a puddle of water in front of you. When you have food delivered, you should have some type of eating utensils and napkin. If you order a platter to be shared you should receive additional plates to eat from. It was like having someone who has never eaten in a restaurant before wait on your table. FOOD- I honestly looked to the person on my right and said"do you think they tasted this stuff before they put it on the menu." I have never felt that way before. The artichoke dip was so flavorless that it seemed like they tried to make it horrible. Coconut chicken fingers were so over cooked that it was almost like trying to eat chicken JERKY. Ragin cajun shrimp- JOKE- likely purchased from Cisco, dropped in a fryer, and put on a plate.
Maybe they needed to lose some money or have an alternate motive, BUT these people are NOT in the restaurant business. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING.
If I was one of the owners above, I would immediately remove kitchen and front house management and start over.
