Awesome A to Z. Look at the pics! Service was perfect. Atmosphere definitely Euro. I felt like I was in Ukraine. Delicious food. We also got the Greek Salad and Green beans and dessert pizza. Merlot/Malbec blend is lovely. YOU MUST DO VORA. I did not feel like I was in Wichita or even the Midwest. 100% all around.

I went here for their Sunday brunch. It was my first time dining at this establishment. I went all out and ordered an appetizer, a carafe of Mimosa, an entree, and dessert. I regret nothing! First, they offer mimosas in a carafe for $15. But that's not the best part. The best part is they offer 5 different juices from which to choose. Since I'm not a big OJ lover, I opted for pomegranate. It was really delicious and a great choice. For my appetizer, I went with the Burrata. I wish I had taken a pic, but I dove right in. There were slices of chewy bread, capicola, salami and sliced figs. The Burrata itself had a sprinkling of chopped pistachios and the lightest drizzle of honey. It was so perfect, as you bite into it, the sweetness of honey tantilizes you into another bite. That's when you get the satisfaction of more creamy cheesy goodness with delectable sweet honey filling your taste buds with delight. I can't stop thinking about this dish. The salty meats are the perfect pairing and the slices of fig bring it all together. Let's talk about my entree. I chose the corned beef hash and I'm so glad I did. This dish is filled with huge chunks of the most tender corned beef ever. I thought it would be a lot of potatoes with a couple pieces of meat the way a lot of restaurants do it to be cheap. Nope! They got it right and I will be sure to let the other guys know it. Finally I topped off my meal with the tiramisu. How can you go wrong with that? The service was excellent and the staff went out of their way to accommodate a special request I made. I honestly thought this was going to be an over priced disappointment, but I was pleasantly surprised. I would have given them 5 stars, but there was an opportunity missed by someone who appeared to be either a manager or owner. As we were sitting right next to the wine room, he entered 2x and didn't acknowledged us either time. Not a good look dude. The restaurant was NOT busy. I will go back for the Burrata if nothing else.

Overall or food was fantastic, the service was spot on, and as we are outside there was some road nose, but it added to the evening. Favorites were the fried gnocci ( for cheese gnocci want quite as good) pizza, and the cook on the streak was perfect. Desserts were perfect as well.

I took my (now fiancé) to Vora on our year anniversary to propose to her and I must say
The service and food were excellent!

If our designated server was busy elsewhere, another server would step in without being beckoned for.
Even the bartender stepped in and brought out one of our dishes to us
-as well as one of the bus persons taking initiative by bringing out take home boxes between courses to make way for our entrees.

Outside of the team work from staff,

The food was exceptional. We tried 3 things that one or the other of us hadn't tried before and we will definitely be ordering them again.

Visually the presentation of each dish was artful and appetizing. You could tell they took care in preparing the food, instead of slopping it out onto a plate.
Everything from utensils to ingredients were of good quality and by the same token, the menu prices weren't cheap, but were overall, a good value for the entire experience.

It was definitely a night to remember.

Second visit in two weeks, just happened that way, different company. This visit seemed hustled, not sufficient wait staff, luckily you weren't too busy. No vegetarian options on menu, it is 2020. Food is good.

Waiter was in point the entire time. The two appetizers we had, the cheese tray and the burrata were both good. I had the schnitzel and while good, came across a bit greasy. My wife had the orange roughy and she said it was great.

Nice addition to the European sector of restaurants in Wichita. Cool location. Food is good, although I wouldn't say just fantastic, the pricepoint and quality/quantity are great. The service was very good, the culture of the restaurant for sure is for you to have a great time, and enjoy everything about your experience. Would recommend for sure.

Server was very friendly but lacked a little knowledge about the wine menu. The food menu was good but my gnocchi was a touch bland and slightly undercooked but was fresh and made in house. All in all, it was a pleasant experience.

We had a 6:00 rezzie but were seated early. The place was pretty busy because of Happy Hour but filled up even more as the evening wore on. Service was spectacular as Hayley took great care of us celebrating my daughter's b.d. We ordered starters of calamari, escargots and shrimp cocktails. Quite tasty. 1/2 salads were ordered as sides (spinach and Italian) and they were crisp and cold with nice dressings. All of us had Fr. Onion soup which was prepared excellently. Entrees were Walleye, Parisian Chicken, Paello Bastardo and a K.C. The steak was undercooked but Hayley quickly took it back for re-heating. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Desserts were bread pudding, creme brulet and gelato...a nice way to end the celebration. I would definitely go back to check out other items on the menu.

While I knew it would be busy because of Valentine's Day, getting sat at a table clearly only there because they tried to fit as many tables in the room as possible (and it was in the way of all the servers going in and out of the kitchen near the water station) was pretty disappointing. Especially since I had a reservation and it was our first visit there. Food was good, but getting our chairs bumped constantly by people walking by was a major bummer on our night out. I'll give it another try for sure on a less busy night?

First visit - very good food
We tried the Gnochi Fritte and charcuterie appetizers and both were very good
Bread and oil was served on the side thoughtfully and was an excellent accompaniment. French onion soup was outstanding and Italian salad was good. Margherita pizza, veal and past entrees were all memorable. Good blend of flavors...tastefully presented.
Kudos to Bonnie who took such good care of the four of us —- excellent service.
Good beers and wine list made it all come together. Bread pudding was average. We will be visiting again. Expect $40-50 per head (including tip).

Our food was fabulous. We had veal and schnitzel for our entrees. The salmon appetizer, the salads, the cocktails and the bread pudding were all delish. Our server Bonnie was a delight and perfectly attentive to our needs. She made sure to keep the courses moving so we made it to our concert on time without ever feeling rushed. First time at Vora, but it's one of our favorites and we will be back often. There are so many wonderful things on the menu that we want to try.

We are always glad to be back at Vora. Our appetizer was the eggplant parmesan-perfect for a cold evening. I had the duck frites and my wife ordered the paella. She was disappointed in its composition and texture, however, so she asked for a different entree which was swiftly provided. What could have been an awkward moment was handled beautifully by our fabulous server, Collin, and management. We enjoyed the current special, creme brulee, for dessert, along with some after dinner drinks. Overall a very nice evening.

Food was excellent. Service was overly assertive and made my dinner companion feel rushed. We were asked several times mid-bite if we were finished and if we would like our salads, entrees and desserts removed. At one point my companion had approx 1/3 of her salad remaining and over 1/2 of her entree still on her plate. There was no one standing in line for a table, so not sure why we were being encouraged to hurry along.

New years eve. Reservation at 730, sat at table 830 Took 30 min to get first drink. At least 30min for next drinks between ordering and receiving. Ordered app as soon at sat. Took a little almost an hour to get app. And another hour to get entree. Calamari was very good. Scallops very good, saffron risotto just good. Husband really liked chicken spiedine, mashed potatoes okay just boring. Waitress very good and very apologetic even though the wait was not her fault. Probably needed more bartenders for such a busy night. Had an enjoyable 3 hour date with the husband. Will probably return for lunch maybe dinner on a slower night. If the drinks were bigger it wouldn't have been such a long wait in between. Cocktails were very good.
