    Food was good but service not so much. They over booked, didn’t get seated until 30-45 mins after reservation time and we got seated at a tiny table for our party until an appropriate one was ready. Staff was nice, drinks were great, food delicious they need to fix the service though.

    The service was slow. They double booked reservations and didn’t have enough seating. Sucks because they make you pay a $15 deposit per person. People were waiting to be seated for a long time after their reserved time slot. Took a half hour to get two drinks. The music was the only good thing. Will not be going back.

    Prior to choosing this restaurant I read the reviews and they were mixed. I wanted to give this place the benefit of doubt … but all went downhill. They took too many reservations and wasn’t able to accommodate. I had reservations and still waited 45 mins. They stuck us in a corner by the bathroom. We sent the drinks back numerous times. This is not a place that I’ll ever return to.

    My girls and I came for Brunch and the food was prepared and seasoned very well. The bread pudding is a must try!! Our server was on top of everything. Only thing we didn't enjoy was the passion fruit mimosa.

    I was skeptical about having my birthday dinner here because I had never been, but let me tell you I am so happy that I did! They had valet, our table was ready upon arrival, the drinks were strong and good!! They had Panna bottled water which is my favorite! The appetizers came right out and were delicious!! Our food was hot and fresh and taste amazing, and the staff made a huge deal about my birthday and brung me out dessert while singing and sparklers!!! 10/10 highly recommend!!!

    Sooo i came here for my birthday & babyyyy let me tell you I’m glad i didn’t cancel this reservation because everything was 1000/10. The Filet mignon eggs rolls were top tier, rock shrimp was to die for. The salmon , mash & asparagus omggg the salmon was cooked perfectly, seasoned well & wasn’t dry. The ambiance 10/10. The people that worked there were really nice. Everything was truly amazing, i really cant wait to go back.

    I was skeptical because of reviews. But my friend and I had a great experience. We were running late and the manager Eric worked with us and changed our reservation time with no problem. We got there and was greeted by our host Brian. Brian was AMAZING! Like seriously. The food makes you want to find the chef and personally thank him. I’m pescatarian and was eating their Thai Wings smh. Music was great. I’ll be BACK!

    The hosts were very rude and dismissive even though we had a reservation for 8:45. They sat us right next to the kitchen & the tables were right on top of each other so I was sitting very close to a couple. The wait time was insane & the place is overly crowded. It was so all over the place I had to leave. Overall, it’s just a lot going on in there and they lack organization so I’d probably never go back.

    It was the worse experience I had at a restaurant. For a party of 6 they gave us a table for 4. It was small and uncomfortable. They didn’t give us time to look over the menu and was rushed to order. When we was about order the main course they told us we had 30 min for the table. They charge $20 for water that I didn’t ask for. I would not recommend this place. The service was unprofessional.

    The restaurant has a nice vibe. It’s a small space and when we first arrived there were individuals at the bar having a conversation over our heads. The manager did do his best to make us as comfortable as he can. However, a waiter drop plates that spilled food all over my sister(they gave us shots to accommodate the inconvenience) however that wasn’t enough on my end. The food was very good however the steak choice came with no sides. If someone is spending 65 dollars for steak it should at least come with a side that we shouldn’t have to pay separately for. For the price the service should be better and the food choices should be fare.

    Expect to wait up to over an hour. Even if you do have reservations, customer service is poor, food is the mediocre. The wait times exceed the average. Customer service is a lackluster and for the price you do not receive your value in service. Go here if you want aesthetics and tick-tock vibes, don’t go here if you want a good customer service and food.

    The reason why I gave a 3 star rating was because we were seated by the bar and a parties who were waiting to be seated stood at the bar so traffic kept bumping into us. The creme spinach wasn't good (more of the frozen spinach taste than creme and didn't look appealing).My date and I both took a bite but wasn't able to return the plate. The garlic shrimp starter was tasteless and beware of the water. We were asked if we wanted spring water but were not made aware that it was $10 a bottle until the bill came. Other than that we had sweet n spicy thai wings, lobster mac, filet mignon and the lobster tail was good. Overall, the vibe was nice and we enjoyed dining at this location .

    1st Off Its A SMALL Venue. I Kept Gettin Hit In Da Head By Multiple Ppl Squeezing Between The Tabke Seats And The Bar Seats. The Prices Of The Food Were Ridiculous And I Ordered Da Same Side Twice & It Was Like 2 Different Ppl Made It … The Drinks Were Not Strong. I Literally Had 2 Ask 4 Dem 2 Put Some Actual Alcohol In It Cuz It Taste Like Watered Down Liquor. LoL Literally My Receipt Said Make Drink Stronger Underneath The Drink I Ordered. Then The Photographer Comes And Starts Tellin U Wat 2 Do And How 2 Take A Picture And Dan Wen She Sees U About 2 Leave She Bombards U With Like 10 Pics That She Framed And Charges U $20 4 Da 1 U Like. I Kindly Declined. Once Again I Have 2 Say The Prices Of Da Food Was Way 2 Expensive. Da Couple NxT 2 Me Was Like Who The Phuck They Think They Serving. LoL I Would NEVER Return Here. I Must Say Their Marketing On Social Media Made This Place Seem DOPE But Wen U Reach Its Like Playin A Game Of Whack A Mole Cuz Datz How Many Times I Got Hit By A Waiter or Customer Trying 2 Squeeze Between Bar Seating And Table Seating. My Waiter Was Knowledgeable About The Products Food & Drinks & He Tried 2 Keep It Official But Them Drinks Were Not Hitting At All. I Wouldnt Recommend This Place To My Worst Enemy

    I loved Vida NYC! Me & my boyfriend had a great time. The food & music were amazing. The lamb chops & seafood mac was GREAT! I loved that they offered "Industry Nights" for people in the food & beverage industry. Great marketing on their part. I forgot our servers name but he had locs & was VERY attentive. Shoutout to him! Only thing I would change was not getting another order of the seafood mac lol.

    If i could rate this 0 stars on service i would. There had been numerous instances where i was asked what my special occasion was & on top of the fact i personally set up the reservation for birthday and what i wanted in the special request and yet STILL nothing was done. Watching other tables in front and on the side of me get their special attention with sparklers and can’t have anything except regular service ON MY BIRTHDAY, is very outrageous. The food tasted great but i was told that 2 menu items were unavailable however a table beside us had at least one / two orders of the “unavailable food items” & being charged $10 for still water is beyond me & $30 for sprite plus $81 for automatic gratuity with crappy organization ..besides the terrible organization, the waiters were as helpful as they could’ve been in certain situations but it still wasn’t worth 3 stars for overall service. Would prefer to do takeout than dining in again🤷‍♀️
