Enjoyed not feeling rushed. Everything was spaced nicely and our waiter, Nick, did a nice job of keeping the pace of the meal. The only observation is that the room was a little cold (temperature-wise). Appreciate reasons for using first names between customers and wait staff but I am not terribly comfortable with that innovation at restaurants.

Extraordinary meal (chef's tasting menu). Couldn't recommend this restaurant any higher. This was my first time to Indianapolis, and I certainly hope it's not the last now that we've discovered Vida.

The food was amazing and service superb. The only problem I had was the champagne bottle we order was garbage and it was 78 bucks. Other than that everything was amazing.

What impressed me most about Vida is how much care is given to every ingredient that makes your plate. While it is priced on the higher end, the quality of food and service is worth the price of admission. I had the scallops and my partner the ricotta gnocchi. The gnocchi was a newly added dish but was savory yet light. The garlics suace was good enough to eat on its own. The scallops were also perfectly cooked and delicious. Overall a great experience

Great service, even at the bar. The bar tender was concerned that my wife was not enjoying her cocktail enough and asked her what her favorite drink was and made her a custom cocktail with a similar taste.

Amazing place! Celebrated my wife's birthday over the weekend and there couldn't have been a better spot for it. Right from the front desk, to the bar tender (Ian) to the food servers, everyone was there to provide such a great experience. The food and drinks itself was out of this world. They also had a special vegetarian tasting menu option too. Would recommend to anyone thinking of celebrating any occasion. I will be back certainly!

We have had several great meals here but this last visit was just not good. We made the reservation a month ahead and ended up being seated in the bar area under a really loud staircase. It took forever to get our food. We ended up being there well over 2 hours. The food was good but not near the quality for the money as previous visits. We had to refill our champagne glasses every time and ask for water refills several times. We were there for a birthday and let our hostess and server know to receive the free dessert per an email we received. We were billed for the dessert and unfortunately I didn't realize till we left but just another small thing not done right. We really love the restaurant but this visit was just not good.

The first thing you should look for when you’re looking at a restaurant is if the food is good. It was the best food I have ever tasted. I couldn’t find a hole in any dish served. It was absolutely fantastic!! The second thing you should look for is service. It was exception. Our waiter was Austin and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire menu. He never hovered but was always there whenever we needed something. He was artful in his care for us. Finally, you should look for the ambiance. While there were tables around us, never did we feel like we had to speak over the room. I can not recommend Vida enough. It’s amazing!!

We’ve been to Vida a few times and each time we have a delightful experience. As someone with celiac disease it’s hard to dine out and they do an amazing job making delicious food for me that I know is safe to eat. My husband loves the rib eye and their ricotta donuts. Great place for a small group (8), a special date night or to celebrate a birthday.

Amazing. If you love high quality great tasting food, make a reservation. I read reviews and looked at the menu, so I had a very good idea of what to expect. My expectations were met and exceeded. The beef tartare was so good my wife tried it (did not see that one coming) and agreed that it was phenomenal. The beet salad was a beautiful combination of tastes and textures. The ribeye was cooked perfectly, full of flavor and oh so tender. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, out come the ricotta doughnuts! My wife was disappointed they had run out of the bread pudding, but I am certain we will be back again. Truly an exceptional dining experience.
