I have started emacs (v26.1) server:

$ emacs --daemon

I connected using

$ emacsclient -t

From within emacs, well spacemacs, I restarted the daemon SPC q r, which executed dotspacemacs/resume-emacs-resume-layouts tied to restart-emacs.el.

After daemon restarted, I see

$ htop

  PID USER      PRI  NI  VIRT   RES   SHR S CPU% MEM%   TIME+  Command

How can I reconnect to the server? I tried this:

$ emacsclient --s server -t
emacsclient: can't find socket; have you started the server?
To start the server in Emacs, type "M-x server-start".
emacsclient: error accessing socket "server"

Can I use the /tmp/restart-emacs-desktopOpor7P information somehow?
