This place delivers both.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPeel me a GrapeAnother wonderful evening with friends in this charming and refined bistro. The food is as good as it gets - - the service is personable and on point - yet there is absolutely no pretension. Background music? Diana Krall softly crooning "Peel me a Grape." What an absolute pleasure!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food. A noise levelWonderful food. A noise level that is absurd when it could be altered by simply putting acoustical tile on the ceiling.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy second visit was just asMy second visit was just as outstanding as the first! The service is friendly, competent and professional. The food is well conceived and beautifully executed. And the wine list (and the wine pairing advice) is excellent. I'll be a regular.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at Vis a Vis but it won't be the last. The tuna tartar was mouthwatering and the house pickled veggies refreshing. The came over to discuss our wine choice and stayed to chat a few minutes. I can't wait to go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing- Warm lobsterFood was amazing- Warm lobster salad infinitely more delicious, had twice the lobster, and was less expensive than one I'd just had an extremely well-known restaurant. My date was wowed by the moistness of the confit but took more than her share of my halibut.Next time I'll bring a group as there were quite a few new dishes since my last visit3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent cuisineConsistently excellent cuisine and wine. One of our "go to" restaurants in town.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Trio of Housemade IngredientsThis evening I went to BVaV on my own since my bride was on an errand of mercy in The City. I sat at the counter. I was able to get great service from my server , Jorge, and talk to owner/chef Soo Young as well. I have given up wine for Lent, so I had sparkling water. Seems like a crime given BVaV's extensive by-the-glass wine list. I started with the large field and herby House Greens topped with onions pickled in a house-made vinegar. Then my first taste of BVaV's fish tacos. I slathered each one with BVaV's house-made hot sauce... great flavor, and only hot when I poured it on. Dessert was the Affogato- house-made vanilla bean ice cream with a shot of espresso). My counter seat got me the house-made ingredients story. Extra fun!2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOur go to restaurant for deliciousOur go to restaurant for delicious food and wine. Creative flair to each dish.1/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed our visit.Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Me, my wife, and twin 7 year old boys ate an early dinner here. Didn't expect to find such a high quality place in a shopping mall. We received a warm welcome. The food was prepared with care and an obvious passion for cooking. Great flavours. We had clam chowder, duck confit, a seafood pasta, and a beautifully cooked, tender pork chop. The wine list, of carefully chosen boutique local producers, puts to shame many a list of big names you might find in more extravagant restaurants. This was our first visit and we will be back - one of Marin's better restaurants and means you don't always have to go into he city for a fine meal.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
