LOVE Vandal! We went for my daughter's birthday - Service was great -- The rose frose drinks were delicious, as was each dish. We ate mushroom and caramelized onion pizza and tacos to start...then i ate one of the best chicken parms, daughter had scrumptious scallops and my hubby ate the incredible skirt steak w egg on top as our main dishes!! The dessert shot was unreal and birthday cupcake was so moist and yummy. Vandal is up there as one of my very favorite restaurants - whether it be special occasion or just a nice night out in nyc. Thanks Vandal for never disappointing! <3
Venue looks fantastic and the food matched. Will definitely return!
Went for apps and drinks last night. The ambiance is very sexy and I love the artwork that was on display. This is an upscale venue t I am a big fan of Chef Chris Santos (Stanton Social) so coming here was a priority for me. The drinks were well made and on point. The drinks like the menu have something for everyone. As for the food it is delicious just keep in mind these are micro-sized tapas. Do not come here expecting to leave full unless you have a black card or this is a business expense. That being said I had the red snapper tostadas and the mushroom pizza. The smores dessert at the end. The dessert was ok but the pizza and the snapper were very good. I will be back to sample more bite sized delights as well as an entree.
Came on a Monday night. This is my fav spot in the city, but food wasn’t so good this particular night
Requested in my reservation to not be put next to the bus station and they sat me next to the bus station
Everything was amazing. Chef Coull & Company were phenomenal!
Great restaurant with great food and some of the best service ever.
We had a 6:00PM réservation so it was a bit on the quieter side when we got there. Our waitress, Stephanie, was great. My husband and I shared everything and we weren’t disappointed....the crispy miso glazed eggplant was to die for! It was definitely getting louder and more lively by the time we left. Will definitely go back with a larger group and stay later!!
Food was nice a few different small plates all tasted great, but nothing out of the extra ordinary that would make me crave go back, place inside looks really good
Loved small plates. I'm looking forward to going back and trying more from the menu! Yum!!
Lively hotspot. Attracts many groups of younger people meeting with friends. Menu options offer a broad spectrum of choices for all sorts of tastes. Food is excellent. Over the course of a few visits have tried a dozen menu items and there are always empty plate at the end covering the table. Their cocktails menu is creative as well. Definitely a must try in lower Manhattan. Make reservations early, later time slots on weekends are hard to get last minute.
Lovely food, amazing dessert and great server.
It was better if they open each section of the rooms by the guest and not all together.
We set on the bar with the guest in the main room almost alone. The rear room wasn't full too.
The first dish was good.
But we had to return the steak 3 times because was cold.
Nice place. But it was disappointing.
We loved everything specially the salmon poke I can have 5 of those everyday..,
Very cool restaurant. It has awesome renowned street artist murals!!
Beautiful food, amazing cocktails and the staff are amazing 5*
It was very nice.
This place was recommended by my friends who had a Christmas party here. I was here with three colleagues. It all was fine. It felt quite big, seem to be set up for big groups so if you are looking for that then this is great. Food was a bit unimaginative, I had the Halibut which was on the dry side, my friend had a salad which was pretty boring. Staff was pretty friendly, bar staff a bit stand-offish which matches the crowd. Set up to look cool and felt a bit 'produced'
I have been to Vandal about 4 times and have never been disappointed. The staff was very accommodating and changed our seats when we requested it and were helpful with the dinner selection by suggesting the amount of items we should order. The waitress was extremely pleasant and gracious and the food came out at a good time.
Now comes the unpleasant part of the night. Mid-way through our meal I asked the waitress if the lounge area was open and she stated that it was. When we finish our meal we have an additional round of dessert cocktails and then we attempt to go down to the lounge only to be told that we have to exit the restaurant and go through the front. We had checked our coats and thought it was sense less to get them if we are going to the same location. When we get to the front they inform us that we have to go outside to go to the downstairs lounge. We go outside and we are greeted by two bouncers/ doorman that ask if we are on a guest list. We were not on a list. It was 11 pm on a Tuesday a guest list did not cross my mind especially after consuming about $350 dollar tab at Vandal. The bouncer proceeds to tell us that we will have to commit to a $100 tab in order to get in. This wouldn't be an issue if we had only gone out to have drinks, but the reality of the situation is that we had just bought about 4 rounds at dinner and felt that would be excessive to commit to that tab.
So in conclusion a great night ended on a bit of a sour note since we had selected the restaurant because of the lounge option and did not know that the politics of the restaurant would be to bully us into committing to consume something that we may have consumed in any case if it was not mandatory. Go for the food or go for the lounge or go for both, but just know what it entails.
Visited New York for my bday and absolutely fell in love with this restaurant , best scenery customer service and food , has culture and art which is my favorite
Excellent food, great atmosphere, great staff. 100 satisfied.
The waitress was extremely Knowledgeable and attentive. The food was delicious and the place was down right fun !
First time going to Vandal! It was a great experience for me, I will definitely go again.
We will definitely be revisiting this place. Everything we tried on the menu from the drinks all the way down to dessert was delicious!!
Vibrant, trendy venue with a great cocktail list and menu. Similar to Stanton Social and Beauty & Essex. Worth checking out.
I had a great time with my wife at Vandal. I had squash scallop with rice which was Scrumptious but they could of put 2 more pieces of Scallops rather then 3. When u cook scallops They have a tendency to shrink so you don’t have much. My wife had salmon and she loved it Drinks and appetizers was excellent ! I would definitely recommend
We weren’t that impressed. The menu was all over the place — and nothing we ordered (we tried all the servers’ favorites) was that impressive. Lots of hype. Not worth it.
Great customer service from reservation to meeting in person to the waitresses and upon exiting the restaurant 🤗
I would definitely go back to Vandal! It is a very cool/edgy place with excellent food and service!
It was my birthday I felt special by just entering they greeted me and acknowledged my birthday.service and food was great ..will definitely be back
Great service, excellent food, cool atmosphere. Love this place.
This restaurant was not what I expected. The food was very mediocre. The customer service was poor and the lighting was horrible. Most like will never return. This restaurant has received more hype than it deserves.
Everything was amazing but our waiter was snotty and didn't have a friendly or welcoming personality and was not accommodating when it came to our choice in food.
The service was on point. The food was amazing. I will be back.
Simple and cute. Great ambience but needs more menu choice
I went for my birthday day dinner and I enjoyed it all. The food, drinks, ambience, the service (the food took a bit long) but it was all worth it.
The venue has a special ambiance. The staff was very attentive. We tried several menu items and had a fantastic meal!
All great, food, drinks, service. It was pricey
Amazing place! Beautiful and food is great too.
