Having been to Bar Vasquez's predecessor Pazo many times, we braved a snow storm and gave Bar Vasquez a try. We were celebrating a birthday and and a great job review and were in an anticipatory happy mood. We were first directed to a table close by other diners but were given a booth upon request (had already requested a booth on the first floor on the reservation form online but apparently was not noticed). After a few minutes, our server (I am omitting her name in this review but would be glad to discuss this person with someone at Bar Vasquez) came to introduce herself and get drink orders. From the moment she approached us, it was not a friendly feeling at all. The rest of the meal was somewhat tense as she was very perturbed on how and what we ordered, even proclaiming "you ordered a lot of food, and I don't know in what order to bring it out". She would reach over and pull extra plates away and was in general miserable. We did love our food and the live music was very nice. We loved Pazo and we love the building. Bar Vasquez is like the older cousin of Pazo. We just wish we had a better first impression of Bar Vasquez's service.

I took my parents here over the weekend since it was my dad‘s 62nd birthday. Although the food was absolutely delicious and totally worth what you’re paying for, unfortunately we were all quite disappointed by the service. It took our waiter over 20 minutes just come by to give us the menus and to take our drink orders. When the drinks did finally come out, they only brought two out of the four that we had ordered, and we had to wait another 10 minutes for the other cocktails to arrive. While we were waiting to get his attention towards the end of our meal to ask for the check, he stopped by every table except ours despite the fact that we were calling his name and trying to signal him over numerous times. It’s definitely worth checking out since it was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had, but beware of the service and give yourself plenty of time for this dining experience.

First, let me say that the food and cocktails at bar Vasquez were amazing (Wagyu hangar steak and foi gras were out of this world) The Ambiance was warm and inviting on a cold and snowy evening. I was pleased with the volume of the contemporary music that was playing as it made a nice background so that my date and I could hear each other, but our conversation was not carrying across neighboring tables. However, they hosted a live band, turned up the lights and the music became too loud which diminished the experience and we hastily ended our evening. Our waiter was awkward and did not appear to really know much about the menu. It was my first time at Bar Vasquez, so when he approached after being seated and before having the time to open a menu, and asked what we wanted to drink, I said I wanted the signature Manhattan that is part of the restaurants advertising. He seemed confused. My date and I asked for recommendations which didn't really get much of a response. I am still unsure what the specials were. My drink was taken from the table before I was done, flatware was removed while there was still food on the table. Again, the food was awesome, but maybe a little more focus on the ambience and service would go a long way.

There wasn't anything special about the food or service, but the ambiance is excellent, which is why we came in the first place. Probably wouldn't come back for dinner, though.

Dinner was fantastic as usual. My fiancée and I split the chicken empanada, broccoli, and we both got a 7oz tri-tip steak. However, my fiancee’s steak was noticeably smaller than my steak. Not sure if it is because her steak was cooked medium well vs mine being rare. Despite the size difference, the steak was easily one of the best steaks either of us have had. We will definitely keep coming for our anniversary in the future!

We had a wonderful dinner here! The service was great and the steaks were absolutely delicious. The interior was also gorgeous and open. Great for a romantic date/special occasion.

So this was my birthday dinner and was looking forward to the reimagined Pazo space and all in all it was a nice evening. The food especially the Chilean Tri Tip and Grilled Octopus were amazing. The Uruguayan Steak Tartare was the best I have ever had. And the hostess very sweetly ensured we had a table with a spectacular view. The issue I had with Bar Vasquez is that at this price point is having to deal with missteps. One appetizer was over done and chef agreed and it was taken off the check and then the sides for our entrees were completely forgotten. We were given dessert on the house which was very nice. Maybe I am picky but when missteps start to happen it makes the dinner awkward

What a beautiful and atmospheric restaurant, and really professional staff at every level. You forget sometimes how good a restaurant really can be when you haven’t been to one of this caliber in a while. The meal was astonishingly good, every individual element prepared to perfection. We had the Camarones y Palmitos (Poached Shrimp, Hearts of Palm, Avocado, Butter Lettuce, Chive, Marie Rose Sauce) - incredibly tender shrimp on the best hearts of palm salad we’d ever had, bar none; Wood Grilled Foie Gras (Pinenut, Baby Arugula, Pear, Apricot Sauce) - rustic, rich; Almond Crusted Merluza a la Plancha (on large lightly browned rounds of Yukon Gold Potato, pea shoots, Bearnaise Sauce) - more of a golden delicious deconstructed crust crumble on top of a thick filet perfectly seared on one side, separating into huge moist delectable flakes; Wood Grilled Lamb Chops from Elysian Fields Farm, Pennsylvania (Charred Cauliflower, Roasted Tomatoes, Lemon Caper Chimichurri) - the large slices of charred cauliflower almost stole the show but the lamb chops (tomahawk style- full rib bone) were so flavorful they won the night! The desserts were equally delicious but I’ve run out of words...
