Have been to Vora numerous times. Great atmosphere, but unfortunately the food and service is not consistent. Wait staff very friendly, but may not be efficient.
Last visit we waited 40 mins for our wine to get to the table. We had ordered food at the same time so the food was coming out as our drinks were delivered.
Food that has been consistently very good- calamari, salads, French onion soup, hamburger.
Inconsistent: Sometimes good and sometimes over cooked or too salty, or too much pepper or “dry”: any chicken dishes, salmon, paella.
We so want this restaurant to be good every time, but after spending $100-150 each time we go, we are getting discouraged. Think we will stick to the salads and try the pizza.

We have eaten here numerous times and have always had a positive experience. Other than Newport Grill, Vora has our favorite patio, although it was a bit more crowded than we were completely comfortable with considering the COVID-19 concerns. Food, drink and service were up to our standards and expectations.

This was our first time at Vora, and we’ll definitely be back. Interior was beautiful. Ambiance was peaceful. And the menu was larger than I expected. We enjoyed drinks, an appetizer, our entrees, and then finished the meal off with a shot of limoncello.

We’re already discussing our return trip and plan to dive into the dessert menu this next time, as well.

Great appetizer, lackluster pasta and duck. We absolutely loved the Burrata, it’s a must try. The duck was too charred for the richness of the meat, and the carbonara was very bland. The food is nicely presented, and photographs well. This is a nice place for appetizers and drinks, the atmosphere is lovely and the service friendly but the next time we will be having dinner somewhere else.

This was the busiest we have ever seen Vora and loved the busy atmosphere. They were very under-staffed and we felt bad for the servers sweating behind their masks. The food was pretty good and the drinks were also. I love the lemon liquor they provide at the end of the meal. The bread with olive oil is always good.

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?
