This place is a hidden gem. So beautiful. The food was good, but not exceptional. Expensive, but I feel the ambiance made up for it. My server, Lily, was awesome. I will definitely return.

Great food and service. Horrible decor. I’ve Never seen so many cheap fake plastic plants and flowers in one room. Would not bring guests there as the fake stuff is really cheap looking

Food and service were terrific! Wine choices were plentiful and good. Music level very high so it was hard to have conversations.. Great place for drinks. Food was served quickly and hot right from the kitchen. Fish was crispy and fresh.

While the Chicago restaurant week deal was a fun reason to come check out this place, I don't think I'll go back. It was $42 for an appetizer, entree and dessert, which is definitely a good deal based on typical a la carte prices, but I couldn't believe the typical prices based on the food quality. Their bowl of mushroom soup is $14, and while it was good, it was very far from being worth that price. I had the duck as an entree and the texture/chewiness just wasn't nearly as good as duck I've had before. The ambience was definitely cute and romantic, although the French/Euro theme was strong and a little bit overplayed. The servers were very nice and even offered coat check, which was a nice touch.

We got there for a 7:30pm reservation and we were immediately sat. (Party of 10). Our server was very attentive and never needed to go look for him. The food and drinks were delicious. We ordered pizza, and a few different appetizers. The environment is chill and I was ok with that. I’d like to go back in the summer and feel the vibes. Were there to celebrate my birthday and it was the right choice as this place is perfect for larger gatherings.

Vajra is an excellent restaurant. Amid COVID-19 concerns, each party was seated far from anyone else. Everything was handled professionally and hygienically. Servings are large and we took enough to have another meal. I highly recommend!
