Diner Reviews
  • "Highly recommend checking out Viand. This is a great downtown restaurant that just happens to be in a hotel. Our group of 10 had the private wine room which was perfect for our special occasion. Bar menu offered many fun and trendy cocktail options. We all enjoyed trying new things. Lemon Ginger martini and Moscow Mules were the favorites. Service was phenomenal. The menu offered a choice to meet everyone’s expectations. Prix Fix menu was a very reasonable surprise at $33 for three courses and several in our group choose this option. Beet Salad and Carrot soup were the most talked about starters. For entrée’s the Mahi Mahi with Curry and pork tenderloin were the favorites. Dessert was a delicious chocolate tart with a pistachio mouse."

  • "We were a party of 3. Ambiance was pretty nice just a little to open and gave the feel of upscale banquet hall. I ordered the duck with the lamb and mashed potatoes. Duck was great with reduced apricot glaze. However the lamb was terrible it was the size of a 5year olds hand tough with no flavor. What was really disappointing is the waiter offered no resollution. Wife ordered talapia, was very good. Daughter ordered ravioli, it was good but really rich. Waiter forwarned as such."

  • "My hunter's duo was a delicious entrée and the beet salad a wonderful start. My guest had the prix fixe menu and found her steak, soup and dessert to be a delight. The service is relaxed and the atmosphere is is candle-light romantic in the evening."

  • "We had a really good experience hear on VDay. Service was prompt and knowledgeable, Lobster Bisque was delicious and our main courses (Ribeye and Amish Chicken) were both excellent. The only thing holding back the 5th star was a subpar dessert, raspberry twinkie and the panna cotta both went half eaten. We will definitely be going back!"

  • "While our entrées were tasty and well prepared, the server would have been wise to not bring out the over heated depleted looking rolls to start. Perhaps that isn't always the case, but it should NEVER be the case. Didn't particularly care for the large open room. We were there on the early side (6 p.m.) on a Sat. evening, and while things picked up some before we left, it was never full. The noise level was energetic in large part due to a big party that came in together and hung out at the bar. Not sure how it would be without that. Our main server was very pleasant and attentive."

  • "Stopped in with a group of coworkers for restaurant week. The food and wine pairings were delightful. The blood orange panacotta was a perfect end to the meal."

  • "I was patting myself on the back for selecting Viand Kitchen and Bar for Thanksgiving dinner. I'm a person that loves variety, but without chaos and that's exactly what they delivered. Salad and dessert buffet, but a plate entree. Perfect! And, don't let the term buffet think wrong. It was more like a salad table and a dessert table. Best thing was the chocolate fountain. I only wish the items to dip in the chocolate would have been better. The cake and rice krispies were tough. The chocolate itself was excellent. The waitress was funny and friendly. I'm not sure of the position of the guy in the suit that helped my indecisive Mother on a drink choice, but he was just fantastic. I truly felt like this was a fine dining experience."

  • "Reserved on Thangsgiving day, and was advised when we arrived that the very limited Thanksgiving menu was the only choice. After I questioned why this was not clear when the reservation was made, they offered to open up the kitchen to cook whatever we wanted from the regular menu. We decided not to put them through that exercise and ordered from the Thanksgiving menu. Salmon was just OK with little flavor. What was stated on menu as "grilled sirloin" turned out to basically be a slice of either roast beef or possibly prime rib - which was well done when I ordered my "grilled sirloin" as medium. Overall was OK, but would not go again..."

  • "We had dinner with a group of 6. We were seated in a separate little party room (wine storage). We loved having our won little space and had a great time. We opted for the prix fix dinner of 3 courses and we all loved our entrees! The cocktails were delicious. The music was great. A musician played all kinds of great songs on his guitar. Love it and will definitely return."

  • "Empty, less a business traveler dining alone and an elderly couple. a sign of how Viand is apparently not the place to go to. Too bad, since the food is actually pretty good. avacado appetizer was even better than it sounded on menu - light and fresh, incorporated all flavors well. ravioli are sinfully good, though a bit on heavy side with the cream sauce. Mahi Mahi dish is nicely prepared inducing both indian and latin food memories. Can't recall fish itself being outstanding but rest of the dish made it fantastic. Wine list limited, but decent prices. Don't go here on a date, to impress, or to kick off a fun night. But next time you just need a good meal and the top new restaurants are all booked, know you can always go to Viand."

  • "For an appetizer my group ordered the flat bread and it was really good. Everyone except for me got the half order of ravioli and they didn't even finish the 5 because it was so rich but it was really good. I had the burger and that was really good and they have great french fries and onion rings that come with the burger. When we arrived we were seated in a private room which was really kinda cool and we could still hear the live music. Our waitress was really helpful and nice, friendly and made good recommendations."

  • "I took my friend there for her birthday. The food was ok not bad just ok. I ordered my steak medium & they over cooked it & it took a while for me to get another one but when I did get it, it was perfect. The service was a little slow & our waitress was not that attentive & it was not that busy. But overall it was ok."
