Slice the Canadian Ham thinner for the egg Benedict. I spoke to David. Great guy. Looking forward to seeing him often.
Great meal. The falling ash was a problem, out of our control.

If you are going to make reservations, make sure you get a table in the patio. The restaurant has set up tables on the sidewalk and near the door. We sat on the sidewalk which was a horrible spot, cars passing super fast and your view is of people shopping at smart and final across the street.

I must recommend the Vodka Orange press! Fresh squeezed oranges and mint?!? Delicious!!
Thank you, Jeremy!
The service was flawless and beautiful! Thank you, Allie.
I felt safe with all their practices in place! I will be back!
P.S. You should definitely try the wedge salad as a pre course! It will blow your mind! Fresh creamy roquefort dressing to die for! 😋😍
Thank you, Vartanian’s!

Very nice way to spend a Sunday morning however; the service was much slower than typical VP expectations. Took almost 10 minutes to order our beverages and then they ended up coming out with our food another 20 minutes later. Timing just seemed to be off a little but food is always fantastic!

Once again David outshines himself as he always comes by the table and greets us. I also am very thankful of the addition of 2 new swamp coolers which made it so easy to sit out in 95 degree weather. I have reservations this Friday and next Tuesday for lunch. I am very pleased.

We’d been getting take-out lunches from the VP that really brightened our days during the worst of the pandemic, but of course our food was even better when it was right out of the kitchen. I had the curry chicken salad with fruit, and my husband had the eggplant sandwich. Both were so delicious, it makes my mouth water to think about them. And the cheesecake- SO creamy! And of course, the owner/chef makes sure that all his guests are happy. This is a special place!

Overall, we had a great experience. First and foremost, I witnessed the staff’s dedication to cleanliness as I saw them change out table clothes in between seating and exhibit a lot of care when interacting with guests. We dressed up a little, with my wife in a dress and I in a sport coat, but the attire ran the spectrum. As for the meal, the wine list (a big thing for me) is voluminous and excellent. We ordered the mushroom puff pastry, French onion soup, and shrimp cocktail as appetizers. They were all excellent. For our entrees, we ordered filet and lobster. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed all the food and the service was excellent. The chef even came out at the end of the meal to see if we enjoyed everything. When you’re in the neighborhood, definitely stop in (and order from their phenomenal wine list 🍷).

Our meal was great. Steaks cooked perfectly. A little higher priced than what we had anticipated. Disappointed that the soup or salad weren't included in the dinner, but we understand it's been tough being closed for business for several months. Service was great too!
