I ordered a drink but it was never placed so didn’t come.
Food is great here! The online menu in open table however does not reflect the current menu.
Chefs tasting menu was outstanding and service and wine pairings great. With a three week advance booking on a weeknight, wish they would have accommodated the request to be seated by the fireplace. Front greeting was a little mechanical. The food, decor and dining room/wine service will bring us back
First time to the restaurant and it was amazing loved every minute of it food was absolutely delicious great evening !!
First time here and it is a very charming restaurant; great service and the food was outstanding. We had the 4 course meal with the Halibut as my entree and the Scallops for my wife. Both were perfectly cooked. We had the doughnuts and the chocolate for desert and both were a wow. We have tried many restaurants in the Indy area and this is definitely towards the top of our favorites-list.
Excellent food and excellent service
Vida maintains itself as one of the best restaurants in Indy with each visit. Amazing food. Awesome service. One of those restaurants that you're always happy to go back to and never disappointed when you get there.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing dining experience! Food, service, and facilities were stunning.
Great food and would return! Was our first time dining there. Recommended by a friend.
Loved everything about it. For the record, I am hearing impaired. Severely. I requested on my reservation to be put in as quiet place as possible. Our table was in the corner of one of the smaller rooms, and the noise level was definitely less there. It was very much appreciated that my request was honored.
Outstanding, personable, knowledgeable service staff. Unrushed service leaving plenty of time to visit with friends. Food creative, tasty, well presented. Would go back for special occasion or to bring out of town foodies.
one of the top 5 dining experiences in my life...and the #1 inside the US...
Despite reservations we would have had to wait for seating at our reservation time so accepted a table in the bar. It was ok but a bit noisy. The food was good but not as good as I expected. The beef tartar was a bit on the bland side. The poached pears were crispy, maybe Asian pears, not soft and juicy as I anticipated. The short ribs were pretty fatty - I prefer leaner. They were very tender and full of great flavor. The server was excellent. So — this was s nice experience overall but not as great as I had expected.
One of the better meals I have had in Indy. Atmosphere was quiet and the tables had nice spacing. The service was top notch and the food imaginative, fresh and balanced. I enjoyed one of the better halibut dishes that I have ever eaten. The cocktails and bartender were wonderful.
Outstanding ,well designed dishes with an exploration of flavors
Wonderful ambiance, great food, fantastic service. Despite coming to Indy only once a year, we will always try to come back.
Did the six course tasting menu this evening . Every course was executed perfectly! The Yellow fin tuna was better than the poke just had in Hawaii, the gnocchi dish with truffle were like pillows, the lamb with with a mint mustard was exceptional, sea bass with the bacon gastrique paired exceptionally with the wine. Lastly the cherry turnover with anise glaze was best desert in a very long time! Keep it up Vida!!!!
Experience was amazing. Ambiance, food and drinks were all exceptional. Will recommend and be back.
This restaurant is totally unique! Vida has the excellent food of fine dining and yet feels cozy -- a pleasingly rare combination. The highlight of the restaurant is the creative cuisine which is prepared and presented with perfection! Plus, the servers' sincere smiles (say that 10 times:) made the experience pleasant; each employee seemed to be genuinely enjoying their evening as well, and that attitude was contagious. I cannot speak to some of the items above because I did not experience them personally (such as the bar side or the outdoor seating), but everything in our experience was exceptional. Before I go I have to say, I love the fireplace! Please always keep it. Thank you for a lovely experience! I wish you the best for years to come.
What an amazing restaurant - the atmosphere is just as outstanding as the food! While it's a bit pricey - you certainly don't feel like the price was an issue when you're done with dinner.
Outstanding service and great food! Vida totally lived up to its billing
There are better fine dining options out there. This place is very midwest and nothing stood out. I'd try it once but brace for disappointment. Food was lukewarm, undercooked seafood, somewhat creative, but execution failed miserably. Service was not comparable to the level of dining experience they're shooting for. WAY too much salt on everything. We won't be coming back.
Dining at Vida is an amazing “experience”. Enjoyed the 4 course option for my birthday dinner. Each course was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. I had the shrimp appetizer, Wall salad, striped bass, and all the desserts. My favorite were the donuts, believe it or not, as they were melt in your mouth deliciousness. Complements to the chef. Our waiter and sommelier, Brandon, helped us with our wine choice and added many nice touches to make the evening extra special. The wait staff is wonderful as well. I would highly recommend Vida if you are in search of the ultimate dining experience.
Amazing food. Every bite was a treat. We had the tasting menu and it was a wonderful meal. The waiter was a bit too friendly but not bad. The best meal ever in Indy. A great place for a special meal.
This was our fifth or sixth visit to Vida and it was perfect, as always. The food is beautiful, delicious and inspired without being obnoxious and overly trendy. The service was great and our server was very knowledgeable about the food and wines to accompany it. We love the 4-course option for $65 and the fact that you can get a half glass of wine, so that every bite is perfectly paired with just the right wine to compliment it. The birthday donuts were a nice surprise, too. It was more food than I should have eaten, but everything was so good I couldn't stop. We will be back.
Excellent as always. Food is high quality and always presented in outstanding manner.
This was the best dinner my wife and I have had in a very long time. Our server, Brandon, was awesome!
A wonderful dining experience. Alex was knowledgeable, attentive, and entertaining.
Great experience- Heather, our waitress, was very good, knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent appetizer and desserts, our entree was ok compared to the other two- but I’m nitpicking. Good selection of beverages and drinks. Will definitely return here.
I do believe this has been our most favorite place that we have ever ate at for our anniversary. The teamwork of all the workers and kitchen was amazing. The open kitchen concept was impressive also. We (my husband, our best friends and myself) arrived a little early before they even opened and they allowed us to go ahead and come and sit inside out of the rain. We were fortunate enough to overhear one of their team meetings before they started their night and even I was inspired by the teamwork and how everyone was included and it really was inspiring to see the communication they had with each other. Then when we sat down to enjoy, you could see how it all worked out so well. Heather was an amazing waitress. Amazing food! Amazing service! The flavors were outstanding and fresh. We couldn't have asked for a better anniversary dinner with our best friends and at the best place all around .
The menu was tremendous. My wife and I are both trying to limit carb intake and our waitress was remarkable in helping us select our entrees, even going so far as to replace the crustini in the appetizer with a cucumber slice. I had the chicken and it was exquisitely done. The butternut squash garnish was delicious. My wife had the scallops and they were expertly prepared. I would highly recommend.
Everything from the excellent quality and presentation of the food to the service was wonderful.
Fantastic as always. Would always recommend for that special dinner
We did the 6 course meal and it was fantastic! The portions were small but really just right, at the end we were stuffed!. great wait staff!!! beautiful building!
Tim our server was great. Very personable as well as passionate about the restaurant and what makes it great.
It was great. Good service and great atmosphere
Outstanding service, impeccable food, spectacular presentation, innovative menu, a true gem!
Great food and service!
Perfect venue for foodies! We did the tasting menu and loved every bit. Our family met up in Indy for a special 21st birthday celebration for our daughter.
Had a bit of an issue with the Valet driver, but other than that, great service and good food. It is a bit pricey, but overall we enjoyed it.
Service outstanding, food absolutely delicious, atmosphere perfect, and overall night Top 5 nationally...
