Great service from an amazing staff. The food was great and I was actually surprised at final bill, it was 80$ cheaper than I had originally guesstimated lol

My experience at Vandal was superb!!! Our waiter Elliott was excellent and very attentive. My guest and I also felt extremely special as one of managers named Cesar constantly checked to make sure we had everything we needed. I will gladly go back to Vandal soon because the food was excellent and the service was an added bonus!

Overall food was excellent. Get the Captain crunch french toast and steak toast -- be warned the steak toast is very small, and the Kale Pesto pizza was delicious as well. Front room which has garage doors open was very comfortable to sit in.

We came here for a girls' night out and were truly impressed with the food and service! Our waitress was awesome when helping us figure out the combination of entrees and shareable tapas that would be best for our group, and everything tasted delicious. Portions were generous (unlike some other hot spots like this), our food and drinks all came out quickly, and the atmosphere is loud but fun for a lively dinner out.

Good place- Great vibe and good cocktails. Def enjoyed the appetizers more than the main course.... Might try it again and give the main course another try. But we only really liked the appetizers.

Had a 9pm dinner reservation for 2 (a girl's night out). We arrived a bit early so we sat at the bar and had a cocktail. Their drink choices are amazing and worth the price. We were seated not too long after 9pm and the area was cozy, not too loud and was playing nice old school music. We ordered two more drinks, two appetizers, an entree each and two desserts. Everything was AMAZING. There wasn't a single thing we ordered that I didn't like. We got the crispy bao buns and short rib meatballs for dessert (and I'd go back just for the meatballs). We both ordered the scallops which was delicious. Then for dessert I got a strawberry shortcake (that had poprocks on top!) and my friend ordered the espresso ice cream shot (they gave us an extra one on the house!). The service was absolutely amazing. We were always well tended too and our table was constantly wiped down and we were provided with new plates. We barely had any questions because our waiter gave us so much information and recommendations (I wish I could remember his name, he was great!). Even though it's pricey and the portions are small, it allowed us to try more things. And of course everybody mentions the decor but you really don't understand until you're inside...that infamous bunny statue wasn't even the best piece in there. The murals that covered every single wall were absolutely beautiful and all so different yet so complimentary of each other. After dinner we decided to check out the lounge downstairs and tbh I wasn't a huge fan. It was around 11:30 and it wasn't too crowded. They don't sell the specialty drinks that the restaurant sells upstairs which is understandable but a bit disappointing. Music was top 40's hits, so not terrible, but also not as trendy and fun as the restaurant upstairs. All in all, great and absolutely amazing spot for dinner and drinks (just expect it to be pricey). If you want to go out after I'd recommend The DL (about an 8 min walk away)!

Service was absolutely disgusting. The waiter clearly had no interest in serving us. He got us four very sugary cocktails in spite our asking us for not sugar at all. Then when we asked for replacement drinks, he got us the same drink with even more sugar.
We ordered two starters and asked him to get those while we look for main course. Surprise - he came back after 20 minutes to ask for main course order and told us that he want to place both orders at the same time. We are never coming back here.

The experience was pleasant. The food, drinks, and service were great!!!

The only disappointment was the separate cover to get into the night club located in the lower level of the restaurant.

Perhaps there can be a comp to patrons whom dined in the restaurant or at least a one drink minimum. Being forced to spend an additional $75.00 per person for drinks in a night club is a bit much after dining previously.

Our experience at Vandal was amazing. It was my birthday dinner and our server, Jorge, made the best recommendations from the menu. The seating was perfect for our party (a booth by the open/front seating area). Everything was just amazing. Honestly no negatives to our experience! Jorge is awesome!!! The food/drinks were beyond delicious and the rest of the staff was welcoming and friendly too. Everyone was very attentive. Thank you for an amazing birthday dinner experience and vibe! It was our first time at Vandal but definitely will be back soon.
