We came in with a reservation for 2, but my fiance decided to join my friend and I before we headed to a concert. The host (whose name I wish I remembered - someone told us it was Colleen, but that was incorrect (she said - do I look like a Colleen? It was funny)) was absolutely amazing. Gracious, kind, accomodating - and she brought us tissues when we told her that we were probably going to cry at the Kelly Clarkson show we were headed to.
Donner our server was also incredible. Kind, personable and was able to not only give great recommendations, but also to tell us how something was going to taste. Very impressive for someone that was still in training. He is going to be a huge asset to what looks like an already incredible team.
Food was amazing - I am so glad that we got the cheese plate. It was fantastic! I can't wait to come back on a date night or with my girlfriends. The ambiance is fantastic, food is great, staff are incredible.

The service was wonderful. Our server was attentive, helpful, and gave the perfect wine suggestions for our meal. The lengua appetizer just melted in your mouth, the Patagonian salmon was tender and moist and went perfectly with the lemon-basil chimichurri. The NY strip steak was flavorful and cooked properly, and the oregano chimichurri was out of this world. The blood orange sorbet for dessert was just the perfect sweet without being too heavy. The noise level was enough to make it comfortable to carry on a personal conversation, but not so noisy that a conversation was difficult. The live music was the perfect touch. We will definitely return.

We loved the decor and atmosphere in the restaurant and the service was superb. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive or interrupting our conversations. The steak was absolutely one of the best steaks I've ever had and the sides were excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Bar Vasquez and hope to return soon. We loved the ambience, live music, and courteous service - our courses came out almost too quickly for a relaxing anniversary dinner. We especially loved the asada grill's morcilla and prime rib and the excellent wine selections. We would certainly recommend this to others.

We stuck with the small plates and appetizers and had a fabulous time! Especially delicious were the vegetables including the broccoli and the Brussels sprouts. Really appreciated the more unusual dishes such as veal tongue and sweetbreads which were both superb and beautifully prepared. Our only issue was the noise level. It is wonderful having live music but given the cavernous space there was a lot of loud echoing niose that made conversation a challenge.

A little pricy. The bathroom door didn’t lock well Someone walked right into the unisex bathroom while I was using it. Fortunately it was my husband. I told the manager so hopefully they fix it soon. It would have been very embarrassing.

The portions sizes are ridiculously small. Fine if it was a 10 course meal, but as we just had appetizers and an entree, it was ridiculous. The steak was fantastic to taste, but before you knew it, it was gone. More like 4-5 oz, not 8 oz. Given the price, I don't think they needed to be so stingy with the portions. The smashed potato side dish was nothing special though. The crab tostadas were quite good and there were 3 of those, so that was the only dish that seemed right sized. One of us had the duck, it was okay, but again for the price, it should have been much better. Also, very small portion. At least there was plenty of bread....

My husband & I were excited to try Bar Vasquez as we had been to the former Pazo several times. The restaurant is stunning–it still is one of the prettiest restaurants I've ever dined in! The ambience is cozy and romantic–perfect for date night. My husband had to order a second glass of wine because the first was bland. We ordered the ceviche as an appetizer, and it was delicious! My husband got the steak for his main dish and was so happy with it. I ordered the lobster gnocchi and was disappointed. It lacked flavor, and for $38, there just wasn't anything special about it. We had the flan for dessert, and it was way too sweet for our taste. Service was attentive and professional, but cold and distant. We found it odd that NINE different people visited our table throughout our dining experience. We didn't have much continuity. We so wanted to love Bar Vasquez, but it failed to impress us.

Bar Vasquez is a great place to go for a date night! Wonderful atmosphere and great wine list. We went there for Valentine's Day. The food was excellent, although was a little pricey for the value. There was a fixed menu for the Valentine's event, which we knew about before hand. Additionally, we felt VERY rushed. Although i'm not sure if that is a negative, as I'd rather feel rushed than have slow service. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about wines and was able to give great recommendations.

After living in Uruguay for a couple years and coming back to the states, we were missing the flavors of South America. The food at Bar Vasquez is absolutely authentic and incredible - from the empanadas to the chorizo and morcilla to the caballero steak. Absolutely everything we had was excellent. We will be returning every chance we get.

I really like Bar Vasquez. The noise level is much more manageable than the last time I was there. Music was quite nice. Appetizers were fabulous. My octopus, however had no flavor, disappointing for a high end place. They apologized and did not charge us. Will go back.
