We had a table of 6 for dinner. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Several people were in town visiting from different parts of the world and commented that the food was amazing. Our server was very attentive - checking in on dishes we were served, ensuring we had water and beverages, and giving great advice on what to order.

I would recommend this place to anyone who wants impressive food and service in a relaxed atmosphere.

Could not choose a favorite between the chestnut gnocchi, the cauliflower, and the polenta. All three were excellent!

Great meal with excellent flavor and options. Everyone in our party was pleased - even a VERY picky eater. Wait staff was attentive and spaced the meal out so we never felt rushed and everyone had something to nibble. Drink selection was good. We will be back.

Best meal we’ve had, possibly ever. Unique space. Exceptional service. Every bite was to die for. Champagne toast for our anniversary was a very nice touch! We were so full that I think the “small plates” could be smaller... but I’m not complaining! Great value.

This is a great place as the focus is connecting with your dinner mates. The food is very good, the service is excellent and the atmosphere, albeit a bit noisy at times, is fine. It is just an indication that everyone is having a great time. I highly recommend for a night out, date night, or gathering with friends.

Great experience at Vidrio! We had the hand-cut fettucine, patatas bravas, and hanger steak followed by the buttermilk lava cake. Fantastic experience overall!

Arguably one of the best restaurant atmospheres in Raleigh. Such a cool place! Artwork is very interesting, but beautiful. Food was phenomenal too. Hangar steak is a must!

Everything was great except the fact that there were not enough valet staff. Took quite a while for us to get the car from the time we turned in the ticket at the valet stand outside (20 minutes +). The delay was not caused by the valet staff, it was due to the number of staff.

We were celebrating a friends birthday. Everything was perfect. We started at the bar for a cocktail while waiting for the rest of our group and the bartenders were wonderful! Our server was just awesome and I just can’t even begin to describe how good EVERYTHING was. I am usually a bit of a creature of habit but we were adventurous and tried so many different things. From the steak tartar to the octopus, there was NOTHING I would not love to have again! My best friend lives in Wilmington and is quite a foode! I have already called her and told her she must come for a visit so I can take her there!! I will definitely be back!!!😋

It would have been a perfect night. The only thing I ordered in advance was that they bring me dessert with a candle for my girlfriend's birthday. I asked using opentable and called the same day to make sure they don't forget. They completely forgot and the idea was surprise. It was too late to ask, the surprise was ruined. That's why I called to make sure everything was ok. Everything else was fine.

Second time I have dined at Vidrio. Very nice portions, friendly and helpful wait staff. Beautiful and eclectic decor. . I would like to see more full entrees on the menu and some specials. Valet parking should be free.

We had preconcert cocktails and a glass of wine and split 3 appetizers so we wouldnt get too full. Our favorites were the ham, cheese & applebutter flatbread and the OMG octopus! The restaurant is stunning to look at and an awesome space to be in.

The atmosphere sets the tone for the night as soon as you walk in. The food is excellent as well as the service. The charred octopus is a must, the staff is extremely knowledgeable with the menu which sets your mind at ease to step outside your comfort zone. We will definitely return, it was a great experience.

This place never disappoints. I love the bar seating in particular because it is beautiful to look at and has an upbeat vibe. Not to mention superior cocktails! Service is always good, and Alex provides excellent recommendations for wine. The Beef Tartar and Octopus are standard fare for us - so delicious! But we always enjoy trying something new each time as well. Vidrio has become our "go to" place for date nights and family gatherings, and we would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys food and wine.
