I took my fiancee and her mom there for lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The chicken tinga entree is so good.

Vida is one of my favorite
Vida is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants. I like to come with friends for drinks or with family. It also accommodates large to ups well.

Possibly the best Mexican ever.
We had a small group all of whom had wonderful food. Best was the one above base margarita, the partita, a little sweet and with wonderful agave. Top notch. Also the crane asana was spectacular as was the corn. I've had a lot of Mexican, and this ranked up there with the best of my life. High praise. Also the service and recommendations were excellent.

I enjoyed my visit to this
I enjoyed my visit to this restaurant. I wish the young lady I had taken with me enjoyed my company there more than she did, but the restaurant was a cool place, nevertheless!

Tuesday $2 Tacos are Awesome!
We were kidding when we asked if there was a Tuesday Taco special but low and behold there was! The Carnita and Chicken tacos were excellent. The guac made tableside is not to be missed!

Mother's Day surprise
My boys and I took out their mother for a day filled with a variety of uptown events. We started with a great brunch at Vida Cantina.
Diane our waitress was awesome. Endless smiles.

Vida was such a great restaurant to celebrate my sister's birthday. The drinks were delicious, the food was outstanding (that's coming from a picky eater), and our waitress, Jenny, was spectacular. The salsa before your meal was a tad spicy but since I love spicy, no complaints here. The queso was out of this world! You have to get the queso. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Mexican cuisine.

Good date joint
Grrat service! Great food! I had the Shrimp Tacos and my wife had Combo #2 so she could sample a few things. The quesadilla wasn't bad, nothing to write home about. But the taco and the enchilada were great! The salsa is how I judge a place. There's was fresh, made in house according to our server. And was a great flavor and heat.
We ate outside and really enjoyed it.
I had an orange mojito and that was nice and smooth.

An incredible Experience
My fiancé and I were on vacation in North Carolina when we discovered Vida. The atmosphere was very modern and inviting, and while the bar area was separated from the main dining room, the restaurant came together in a very unique way. The food was very eclectic but gave respect to traditional Mexican cuisine. The Mango Crisp dessert is a definite must try. However, even more important than the food was the amazing experience we enjoyed. Our waitress had impeccable knowledge of the menu in addition to Mexican culture in offering assistance in ordering. She was engaging and focused on making our dinner memorable. It most certainly was and as soon as my fiancé an I left we vowed to come back to Charlotte just for Vida Cantina.

I always love coming to Vida. The Vida Margarita is one of the best and you can't go wrong with their carnitas tacos.
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always fresh and delicious. The managers and staff are wonderful. If you can ask for Jen as she's the best server at Vida's. The manager, Mary is awesome too!

Vida Cantina is the antidote for those who are tired of ordering from a "combo" menu comprised of tasteless tacos, spongy enchiladas and flavorless rice and beans. The chips were fresh, the salsa had a smoky flavor with a kick, the queso was rich, creamy and spicy. Our entrees did not disappoint but the fish tacos were outstanding. On the service side, we were seated promptly, our drinks were brought immediately and the staff was attentive. Great experience.

Wonderful birthday meal last night at Vida Cantina at the Epicentre in uptown Charlotte. I have been here a few times now, and am still very satisfied with what I've received! Fun, vibrant and modern atmosphere complemented by well-presented and flavorful Mexican-style cuisine. I appreciate the complimentary chips and salsa to start off the meal, as the salsa has that great spice to it. For dinner, I thoroughly enjoyed the shredded beef tacos with rice & black beans from the kitchen along with some delicious limon mojitos from the bar. Definitely recommend this restaurant for a mid-scale/up-scale night out in uptown Charlotte.

great food and service!
We had a great experience, the food and service was super! The only thing that I would ask that they change is the air freshener that was used in the restaurant. It was overwhelming which caused us to sit outside. Otherwise we'll be back.

Best Service at the Epicenter!
We've enjoyed dinner at a number of Epicenter Restaurants on our way to events at TW Arena, but never had the service we experienced at Vida Cantina. We were impressed that the first question asked us, was if we were attending the show at TW Arena. The service staff worked with the bar and kitchen to ensure our dining experience was great, wasn't rushed, but delivered us in ample time to get to our show at TW Arena. In contrast our experinece with many other restaurants near the arena have long waits for seating, drinks and food service that always leave us rushed or late to get to an event at the arena. Great job!

Staff is top notch. Food is good. It is overpriced for mexican food, but rent in the epicenter can't be cheap.

We went to Vida Cantina last week with a friend from out of town. The 5$ margaritas were great, and the food was phenomenal - the table got a variety of tacos, burritos, and guacamole, and everyone loved their order. Good vegetarian options, too.

Yummy tacos, Great service
We ordered the pork tacos, the surf & turf tacos and the fish tacos. Delish. Pork tacos were my favorite. Great selection of premium tequilas. Excellent service.

Reasonable but good lunch
We took a small work group to Vida. Everyone loved the food. one person's order was slightly wrong (unwanted mushrooms), but they quickly fixed the problem.

Excellent service - generous
Excellent service - generous with the salsa and chips (our server even brought out another different greenish salsa - sweeter). Food was great too. We had the fajitas and salmon. Both delicious.

We went to Vida to eat as a part of my friends Bachelorette party. We were all SO impressed. The food and the service was great. I have no complaints, and definitely recommend this restaurant! The atmosphere and service was amazing! If you are looking for a good Mexican restaurant, this is the place to go!

So glad another friend recommended this restaurant to me! The guacamole was delicious and so was everything else! Great drinks too! I'll definitely be back!

Highly impressed with their food!
I have eaten here several times and have tried something different every time and it has all been awesome! I usually go with the servers suggestion because it all looks good. This time my boyfriend got the carne asada burrito and I got the tortilla pie... words can't describe how good it was. We both got the grilled corn for our sides which is probably my favorite. My only negative thought about this place is their alcohol prices. For one margarita it's not that bad but twice now I have been there and when you order a pitcher it's outrageous with little to no heads up of the cost.
