Va de Vi translates to "It's all about wine!" in Spain's Catalan language. Of course, it's all about food, too! Executive Chef Brad Zeller's menu encourages diners to explore and share a variety of eclectic, international small plate portions. Bold tastes encourage diners to explore the large international wine list, easily navigated by tasting notes. Many wines are offered by the glass in addition to pre-arranged flights to allow diners to compare different wines and discover new favorites. A warm, casual elegance defines the ambiance. Outdoors, dine under an ancient oak tree or grab a table in the picturesque lane.

Both the waitress and the staff rushed us through every aspect of the meal - and is was not a busy Sunday afternoon - they hovered over us to try to take plates that were not even empty yet - three times we had to ask them to leave the food/drink on the table - I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been so rushed and rudely treated by the wait staff. Such a disappointment - the food is always superlative but they did NOT allow us to relax and enjoy to meal - frenzied, bizarre staff this visit

Overall this restaurant has good food with a nice presentation. However, we are gluten free and despite getting a gluten free menu and ordering from this menu, mistakes were made. This indicates that the restaurant team isn't cohesive and as attentive as you might expect. Our waitress was pleasant.

Have been coming to Va de Vi since they opened many years ago. We enjoy mixing and matching plates to suit our mood and having a great cocktail or trying new wines. During the summer, dining outside under the oak tree is not to be missed.

I rarely write reviews but this place was amazing. Both my wife and I agreed that this place was better than some of the Michelin starred restaurants that we've been to in terms of everything. We actually made another reservation before leaving.

We love Va Di Vi when we can sit outside. It was cold so we were inside where the noise level is pretty high. The food was excellent as usual.

As always, my favorite restaurant delivered the goods on my birthday! My favs include the braised beef short rib and I can't leave without the chocolate soufflé for dessert. It has spoiled me for dessert at other restaurants!

The food here was amazing. Loved the small plate approach, great for sharing and tasting a bit of everything. Service was good, attentive without being intrusive.
I will be back.

Food and service were both excellent. We ordered the octopus special, which was delicious! I've always had a great experience dining here.

We had a typical Va de Vi meal - excellent... all dishes were delicious. Pre-theater time is a good time to eat here, when it's not so crowded. Outside tables are quieter and feel private; inside is hopping. Really a good place to dine.
