From the Lagoon of Liquidspaceman...
I would differently reserve a table. I've been working on getting a Tiki style restaurant in my city for years now!
Seeing that Disney invested in the tiki bar, over near the hotel tells me their data shows that there is a renaissance for the Tiki culture again.

In my opinion, there aren't ENOUGH table service restaurants at DL compared to any other given Disney park. I remember going to the Tahitian Terrace as a kid, and remember how I used to get fantastic food that my mother couldn't even make...That alone made the place worth visiting! I would easily welcome the reappearance of this iconic DL restaurant and would wouldn't think twice about the cost of it. Of course, I've eaten at Victoria & Alberts Chef's Table, so I've already had the best Disney has to offer, but I'm sure if they keep it kid friendly, I could let my kids see what fine dining with a cool show along with it is like...Sure beats grabbing a few overpriced pizzas at Pizza Port in TL, that's for sure.
Wasn't it a lack of popularity that made it close in the first place? I would love any table service restaurant in Adventureland, and I might be in the minority here but I feel that having a loud show going on in the background actually lessens my dining experience, so instead I suggest that they just use the stage for some soft live music, offer a great and unique menu, open it up as The Tahitian Terrace or call it something else - as long as there's some good food and great atmosphere I think it could be very popular.
As a tribute to the original Tahitian Terrace it would be awesome if the live music was traditional Polynesian music and exotic jazz of the 50's and 60's:
I used to love eating there! I still have a few of the plastic leis we were given, drink stir rods with characters imbedded in the plastic, and sugar packets that had scenes of Disneyland on them. The show was very enjoyable as we ate. I think it would be popular again.
