I would suggest NEVER coming to this restaurant. The service was horrible. I had a party of 20 spent almost $800 and I was not happy at all. I will never come to this restaurant again. If you don't believe me check other reviews for yourself wish I would have.

The waitress was not helpful, nor attentive. I purchased a "birthday package" and was promised balloons, complementary champagne and birthday cake, which I never received. When the bill was paid they literally took our table away as if my guests and I were being thrown out. Truly a horrible experience. I would never recommend this place to anyone!

We had to remind them of our drinks several times. The food came out 1 hour and 30 minutes later. They took forever and people for the lounge started coming in so they were rushing us to finish. They charged gratuity and tip for someone who didn't deserve it. One of the bottle service girls helped out. I was embarrassed. This was a dinner for my birthday and they ruined it. Never again. The bill came out to $320 and I didn't even get to enjoy it.

My husband and I had dinner at Vacca lounge a month ago and really liked it. We thought it was the perfect place to invite our family to celebrate my birthday. This second time around I was not impressed and found staff incredibly rude.
I found the hostess incredibly rude and was really surprised of the rule for large dinner parties. For large dinner parties they only accept no more then 3 credit cards per table and I was surprised that they don't do friendly reminders when sitting down the party. After we spend close to $800.00 for dinner we ended up leaving and going to another neighboring lounge to enjoy the rest of the evening. We were sadly not happy with the service and will never visit again.

First of all when we arrived there was no host in sight. Restaurant was empty and waiters where not attentive. Drinks were really bad, appetizers were good but main entree was really bad, flavor at all. We ordered dessert menu and the waiter took 30 min to come back to check on us for dessert we decided to just get the bill and go somewhere else for for better drinks and dessert.

We went to have dinner the place was empty they had a private party on another room. Later 2 more people came, I would recommend this place to go clubbing after 12am they take all the tables out and change the setting to a club.

To my suprime the food was good. The service took way to much time and the place was very loud. If you want to hand out with a bunch of friends then go for it!

The place is beautiful, we made reservations to dine with plans to stay after for the lounge part. First they took a long time to bring us the drinks we order, then we were informed that the kitchen was closing at 11:30 so we rushed the order and got an appetizer which came in at the same time as the food. No one even offered water, the most basic service of restaurant. Rushed to eat because they were converting the place and moving the tables, we decided to take the food to go, no one ever brought our food back. The place looks nice food was not bad even after taking hours to be brought to us, (just wish I was able to actually eat it), the music was great during restaurant hours and after hours, but I will never go there again. The service is horrible like I never experienced before. The worst part, 18% gratuity is included, so you can't even make a point about the service. Spend 250 dollars on dinner I couldn't eat, and couldn't take home.

The restaurant is beautiful and I normally have gone for clubbing and brunch and they both have been excellent experiences. This time I went for an early dinner. The food was amazing, but the music was not good. They played mostly instrumental music and when we asked for Spanish music the manager refused to change it. It wasn't until another couple put in the request that they finally changed it. Overall the service was great and so were the food and drinks.

Since the moment we arrived there the service was amazingggg!!! The food delicious, the appetizer recommended by our waiter was super delicious! Our waiter was outstanding always making sure we were well served. Their cocktails drinks are very good can't compliant about that. The amazing thing is that after dinner, it turns into a lounge and the atmosfere and music were tremendously super great! Love it! Definitely planning on going back again. We had an amazing time!! Def will recommend it! 😃👍

Very nice restaurant . But food needs improvement especially the steak taste too bloody, and i waited too long for the food. Food was brought to the table in very slow portions. I had to ask for my beans several times and when it was brought out my food was cold and almost done eating since i was waiting for so long. Beans looked like a soup . Restaurant is very nice but does not resemble of what the food taste. I was with a table of 7 and we alll felt the same way.

After reading a few negative reviews I was a little hesitant about going to the restaurant. Yet, my family and I went for brunch in my sister's birthday and we LOVED it! The food was excellent, the ambience was great, the music was good not extremely loud therefore we were able to speak without screaming, but the staff was overall the added bonus my waiter Wimar asking with the rest of the staff was polite, funny, educated, very helpful, and friendly. This restaurant is a true hidden gem! I hope they keep it like that over the years. If you want a local unforgettable, experience this is the place to.

This place seems like it's a great nightclub. Went here for the $24 unlimited mimosa brunch.First, the decor is awesome, but the blue lighting for a Sunday brunch threw me off. I couldn't even see my food and I like to see what I eat. The appetizer was good (chicken soup) and the entree (steak and eggs with malanga mash) was ok. I hardly had any eggs and the steak needed a sauce or something because it was very dry and tough to chew on. The malanga mash was good as well as the mimosa. I tried a little of the other plates my family ordered and they were also good. Nothing really stood out to me other than the decor. At the end you're really paying $30 and it was just ok. I liked that there wasn't a lot of people so it was noisy nor crowded.

It looks like all the staff have different information about what to present to the customers. The host and the waitresses are supposed to be inform of the same rules.
