Great place for entertaining business clients in the western burbs to provide the city dining experience.
Great ambiance. Great staff. Great owner! Great mission. Outstanding food (plus it’s locally sourced). I LOVE this place.
A short walk from the BNSF Western Springs stop, or parking across the street. Excellent dining choice from Paul Virant.
Steak was comparable to the sole of a leather shoe.
Very good food but very small portions. Also very expensive. We go there for their Burbon Manhattans which are made from a rendered down bock beer base. Try one, you won't be sorry.
Food was out of this world! Definitely coming back.
Too expensive. Close to where we live but have only been there twice.
The place in the western suburbs for a special occasion night out. The food was outstanding and the service first rate. They pay attention to the little things that make their dining experience special.
Nice, friendly restaurant with a changing menu highlighting seasonal fare. Good for date night or family dining
Great for special occasion. Great service and food. Somewhat limited menu.
Wonderful and exotic food pairings. Group had a great time and because of that we contracted for a private lunchtime dining event earlier this year. Thank you!
Ordered the 5 course with wine pairings... great spot, even better food!
didn't know what everything was but it was all delicious.
Great food and service last time I was there.
My family and I met at Vie's for a family get together. My mother is in a wheel chair and uses a walker. Vie staff were very helpful and supportive of her. The food was delicious. Everyone found something excellent to eat.
Vie is a fabulous choice for good food and service.
Great service and gorgeous restaurant. Has a city feel but larger space. The corn and blueberry app was my fav of the meal. My white fish dish lacked overall cleverness, it was just fish with beans and rice. My husband did the pork combo which was good and clever. I could have done without the entry bite to the start of the meal. The crepe cake was awesome and the jelly finisher was yummy. The bread was also very good.
Love this restaurant. This is my go-to for a date night in the Western suburbs
Though excited to join friends for a mutually convenient suburban location, we walked away from our first dining experience as nice but wasn't impressed with Vie based on reviews and expectations. The service was fine and the staff never made us feel rushed. It was relaxing and enjoyable from that perspective. We definitely felt the value for the $$$ wasn't worth it. The entree selection was limited and definitely overpriced....disappointing.
The food was fantastic and beautiful. The atmosphere was romantic. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly as well as attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Unique and wonderful menu made to perfection in an atmosphere that is not overly pretentious like other fine dining establishments in Chicago. The wine list, presentation, and richness of flavor on the menu is a fantastic adventure in dining that rivals Les Nomades and Everest. In fact, having been to all 3 restaurants, I prefer Vie. This is truly a hidden gem of fine dining experience that is reasonably priced and operated with sincere care. The owner/chef has made a wonderful fine dining experience in the burbs, entirely possible! Thank you!
Such an upscale ambiance yet very local gathering place. Great for business or special occasions. Love this affordable restaurant with easy dinning and elegant ambiance. Farm to table!
Our evening started with a friendly greeting of the host and banter with fun & engaging bartender Patrick .
We tried many dishes, all quite local, thoughtful and interesting- "Very Vie" with pickled accents and vibrant colors. I found it to be a true value to share plates. Chef Paul came out to say hello which was a treat. . Looking forward to returning again soon!
Fantastic food. Great experience. A little pricy.
My happy place. Downtown eating in the burbs. When stressed, my husband and I go here for something special. No other restaurant in burbs like it. Midwestern ingredients spun in unusual ways.
It was our first time at Vie this past weekend. The pre-fix courses were absolutely delicious, very reasonably priced and portions well beyond what you'd expect for a pre set menu. Definitely will be back soon!
The service was welcoming and gracious. This attentiveness did not change when I expressed some disappointment and regret about my first course--not having made a knowledgable selection regarding the ingredients of that dish though they had been aptly listed. (I expected potato gnocchi though it had stated 'semolina.) Without hesitation our server whisked it away though it had been my ordering error and replaced it with a wonderful and tasty lamb sausage dish on a delectable crunchy sourdough pecan toast. This was followed by a main of wood-grilled sturgeon with grilled corn and unbelievably tangy rich sauce, with a whipped parsnip addition. A fantastic dish which left no room for dessert
Go for a lovely meal and evening
Great food. Outstanding service. Good location & atmosphere.
Bad mojo - for some strange reason with my family the fantastic meal and experience always ends with bad vibe ...
Vie never disappoints. We were happy to celebrate Vie’s anniversary. Hope they remain in town for many years to come.
We entertained out of country company who we have not seen in over 3 years. They have always wanted to dine at Vie so I hastily made a reservation and we were all thrilled. We told them how great the food was as well as a great place to hold a conversation. Lots of catching up to do. Not less than 5 minutes after seating, the shrill of a baby crying and screaming at the table in front of us left all of us on edge. Who would bring an 8 month old baby to a fine dinning establishment. We had to endear this shrill for over 1 1/2 hours. The couple soon realized that everyone in the room was very ticked. Grandma tried in vane to calm and walk the baby but the damage was already done to all of our moods.
Amazing ambiance, high end with welcoming casual neighborhood vibe. The food is incredible in its combinations of farm to table yet extremely reasonable. Ranked 34 out of Chicago's top 50 restaurants. This is a gem in a local neighborhood setting. Our go to place for special occasions.
Wine by the glass isn't very varied. I had a pinot, cab and Bordeaux (trying to find something good) and they all basically tasted the same. The room we were in was FREEZING...and our server was just okay. The staff in any of their rooms tend to stand around a lot. Everyone at our table got a steak knife except me...but i was the only one having steak! The food makes up for all of this, but it definitely makes the overall fine dining experience less than it should be
Another amazing experience at Vie. Great whitefish and eggplant dishes, along with gnocchi and perch appetizers. Wonderful!!!
Love this place - our go to spot for great night.
Food way too salty...asked to see the chef twice..he never came out. This was our favorite restaurant fo the past 10 years..Sadly it is not anymore..Very sad.Tha entire meal was highly disappointing.It certainly was not like our past experiences at Vie.....Shari Tischler and Dr.Allan Muehrcke..Best Of luck to you.
Excellent food, excellent service, all around great meal.
We love Vie. We’ve dined here on many occasions. Tonight was first bad night we had at the restaurant. The waiter we had was below average and so was the food. Very disappointing and unlike any other time we’ve gone.
Absolutely amazing food. We had the 8 course menu and every dish was so flavorful and the staff was attentive and friendly. I plan on going back.
Friend from out of towns 60th birthday.
They even customize the menu of the day to say happy birthday on the top. They made a special cake for her that said happy birthday and treated us like royalty it was a superb meal and we felt valued
We very much like Vie and we’re happy to get in on short notice. I was a little disappointed with mixed service - we had to ask who was taking care of us after no one waited on us for a bit and then it took a very long time to get my cocktail, well after my husband’s drink came. The Vie burger was adequate but nothing special, although the French fries were delightful. Rest of service was just right. We will go back, just a little disappointed this time.
This is one of the best restaurants in Chicago and by far the best in the suburbs. Excellent food consistently! BBQ Week is an exceptional value as are Sunday Suppers and Restaurant week. If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion this is a great ambiance worth the splurge! The cocktails or wine pairings are outstanding and the service is on point, memorable and not pretentious. Overall an exceptional experience with a top rated National restaurant not to be missed!
