Although well known for their excellent selection of wines, their eclectic mix of small plates really stand out. This is a perfect place to take friends for lunch or dinner. Ambiance is quite romantic for a dinner date, too. Service is top notch and noise level is not too loud.

The atmosphere is intimate, the wine selection is impeccable, and the food is masterly created. The patio area is a perfect place to enjoy some tapas with family and friends. This is a perfect date-night spot as well, since everything is shareable. The wine flights add a special touch to any meal as well.

Service was excellent. Very nice venue. Bar is very lively. Be sure to make a reservation. Pommel Frites are a must. We shared small plates. Beet salad was outstanding. Short rib with polenta was outstanding. Very nice wine flight list. The Italian flight was outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great food, great wait staff, awesome wines. Outdoor heaters & friendly to dogs. The big oak tree in the back is perfect on a sunny afternoon.

Nice treat and everything was good. But the small plate prices were high for what is served. Wine selection is good but also pricey. Parking can be tough and expensive.

Spent the evening enjoying the great food with a friend at the bar. The bartender struck the perfect balance of taking care of us and letting us enjoy the moment. The food is really wonderful and the drinks were perfect. It isn't cheap, but it is still a great place.

My wife and I have been to Va de Vi over 20 times - and each visit has been perfection. The restaurant is cozy on a cold winter day - and has wonderful outdoor seating on when the weather is nicer.

Va de Vi translates to "It's all about wine!" in Spain's Catalan language. Of course, it's all about food, too! Chef Brad Zeller's menu encourages diners to explore and share a variety of eclectic, international small plate portions. Bold tastes encourage diners to explore the large international wine list, easily navigated by tasting notes. Many wines are offered by the glass in addition to pre-arranged flights to allow diners to compare different wines and discover new favorites. A warm, casual elegance defines the ambiance. Outdoors, dine under an ancient oak tree or grab a table in the picturesque lane.
