Dan Bissonette has waited on us both time we have been to Vida (5/10/19 and 10/19/19) and has provided superb service. You get a good value for the quality of the food. I recommended Vida to my boss. He will be there on Saturday evening (10/26) before the Elton John show. Keep up the great work!

We did the chef's tasting menu, the food and service were excellent! It was a really great experience but if you're on a budget this is not the place for you.

Service was excellent. The chef’s menu is always changing but they do have a main menu that stays the same. We enjoyed the 4 course meal and decided to try things we wouldn’t normally eat. Plate presentation is great, portions appear small but we left full. Everything we eat was delicious and would definitely go back.

I had a wonderful time at Vida; however, the server was less than what I expected of the experience. She was inattentive and very brusque in her manner. I will eat there again and, hopefully, the next server will be better.

We have been to Vida several times before and usually come on special occasions. The food and service has always been excellent. The food is just amazing and probably the best food I have tasted in my life. The only complaint from my wife and I would be how much food we receive. Our bill was close to $200 for 2 people. Some dishes were like 3 bites for me. The portions are really small and I actually left the restaurant still hungry, like the previous time I visited. Disappointing, but still one of my favorite restaurants.

This was our 3rd or 4th trip to Vida and it NEVER disappoints. We generally celebrate a special occasion here, (birthday, anniversary, etc) and we have always been pleased by our experience. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, the bartenders are on point with cocktails, and the chef is amazing! The quiet atmosphere and lighting truly makes Vida an amazing restaurant experience. We will be back again, and again, and again. Vida is truly one of the gems in Indianapolis' dining experiences!

I've eaten a quite a few of the nicer places in Indy and Vida is for sure towards the top. The service, atmosphere and food is top notch. It's a bit pricey, but perfect for a romantic date night. I recommend the Cappelletti with the burgundy truffle.........OMG

Vida is our go to special occasion dinner. My husband and I absolutely love the food, drinks, and service. You can tell they put a lot of detail in the environment, food, and service. You truly feel important when you are there. My husband and I joke that Vida has ruined food and adult drinks for us due to the high quality and amazingness you are getting. When we try other restaurants we always discuss how much better Vida is. Hands down best restaurant in Indy! If you are a foodie and willing to try something different, Vida will not disappoint.

We had an absolutely outstanding experience at Vida Friday night. Our server, Nick, was perhaps the best wait person we have ever had. He was knowledgeable, polite, efficient and subtly there just when we needed him. Our food was exceptional! The presentation was artful and palate promising. The taste was divine. The portions were perfect.
We had the opportunity to dine at The French Laundry when we were in Napa Valley this year. Our experience at Vida was as close as we have come to that exceptional level of dining.

Located in a quiet mostly residential neighborhood. Beautiful exterior and warm greeting. I reserved a single space at bar and was given choice in seating. Cocktail, amuse-bouche, starter, salad and entree were all excellent and service was very good. Some communication issues with bartender - Charged for a 3-Course Tasting, but didn't order off tasting menu, no big problem. Also gave me the check when I asked for coffee, if I cared I would have asked again, but didn't. All in all, a great place and I would go back.

We dined at Vida during Devour Indy, and I am so glad we found this hidden gem. Located in the Lockerbie neighborhood, we were impressed with the structure of the restaurant itself and greeted by the most engaging valet driver. The dining experience was amazing. Complex flavors with each dish in an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere left us planning our next visit.

We visited Vida for our anniversary and had a wonderful time. We chose the Chef’s Tasting Menu (w/o wine pairings because we both wanted mixed drinks instead) and loved everything we had. It was a fun and delicious way to try a few dishes we maybe wouldn’t have chosen otherwise.
