The food at Vandal was spectacular and very creative. We went to celebrate a birthday and the restaurant treated the birthday girl to a cupcake with a candle, and some of their dessert favorites, it was very nice and made the night special. In addition the cocktails are interesting and tasty, and the staff is impeccable.

Despite the fact we had a reservation, we waiting 45 minutes to be seated. As annoying as this was, the food came very quickly and to my surprise was quite good.

Made a reservation through here for my Anniversary and was really happy with everything. From the food to the ambiance to the service everything was on point. While making the reservation i selected the type of date as an anniversary and didn’t think that they will take that into consideration but when we received our dessert they had a beautiful decoration on the cake with a candle and a happy anniversary chocolate piece. That was a really nice touch and we really appreciated that from them. I’ve heard mixed things about the food before coming here but as a picky eater I had zero complaints and everything we had ordered was just the right amount of food and was absolutely delicious. We ordered the shrimp cocktail, boa buns, and cauliflower tacos for starters and ny strip and salmon for entrees. The dessert we ordered was the chocolate eclair ice cream cake it was really good. I highly recommend this place the biggest thing for me is service and everyone was friendly, welcoming and pleasant. I would recommend this place to all of my family and friends it definitely exceeded my expectations and did not disappoint.

The decor of this venue is fantastic. The food was great. The wine list is a little overpriced (same bottle of wine we ordered was cheaper at The Plaza). Fantastic service. Very vibrant and loud, and great people watching.

Our cocktails were ok, got a mezcal margarita that wasn’t worth $19 the triple sec or agave took over the mezcal flavor. The math tasted like a heavy lemonade. The taxi line was serve up , but it had lots of broken ice particles so it water down , change the flavor
Service was great, food was good but could of been better I guess

Vandal was fabulous! Our server was extremely attentive and professional. All of the options we chose were extremely good. The salad is not just a simple salad - -it was dripping with flavor. The tortellini were a good size and delicious but on the sweeter side. The mushroom pizza was probably our favorite off the menu. The poke was good, though a bit of a small portion to share. The seared scallops were cooked perfectly, but were probably the least exciting thing we ordered that night. (Nothing wrong with them, just nothing out of the ordinary there.) We were celebrating my mom's birthday and they were super kind about that, bringing out our dessert order with a candle. (We ordered the ice cream cake -- literally made completely out of ice cream but somehow it was the PERFECT temperature to eat and enjoy without freezing our teeth off. The best part were the "pop rocks" on top flavored like vanilla or "corn flakes"!) We also ordered three cocktails which were unique and presented with a great balance of flavor and booze. All in all, this restaurant is wonderful. It is very pricey, but tapas style tends to be that way.

Nel complesso buono.
Prezzi medio alti, location bella, cibo buono.
Camerieri ostinati a suggerire le pietanze evidentemente più costose del menu.
A noi e’ stato suggerito un dessert decisamente poco gradito (un quadrato di gelato piuttosto duro, enorme, nonostante ci fossimo dichiarati sazi).
Nel giudizio totale non può non essere considerato che il servizio dev’essere più discreto e meno focalizzato all’interesse e al guadagno del locale, viceversa e’ inutile e fastidioso il consiglio.

Vandal is a perfect place for anyone who wants a fun and delicious food experience. The service here is high class, and the food is sharable plates of unique and whimsical delights. Perfect for groups, families or just a couple wanting romantic night out. Don't miss the Cider glazed Salmon, Tortilla Soup Dumplings, Cauliflower Tacos, Sea Bass Tacos, and the Miso glazed crispy eggplant. And leave room for a fabulous dessert!

I had been wanting to go to Vandal for years and finally took the drive to get there. The ambiance was beautiful. Very unique and perfect for photos. The staff was very nice, welcoming, and attentive. The menu was more limited than I would have liked. I had the miso glazed eggplant which was very original and delicious. I also had the cauliflower tacos which were ok as well as the bao buns which were nothing special. The portions were smaller than I expected given the price but overall tasted good. I had the chocolate mousse for dessert which was great and had a fun presentation. Overall Vandal is a great and unique place for a smaller meal with friends.

The food was so worth the price. I chose Vandal for the aesthetic - which did not disappoint - and was happy to find that every bit of food we ordered was delicious. The staff was kind and helpful, making sure we always had drinks and didn’t leave anything on the table for too long. I would absolutely recommend the mulled wine, the bao buns, and the eclair cake. Definitely going back.
