The food was very good but they changed the menu so you are not able to select your appetizers. Our waiter was very nice but the food was slow in coming out.

The menu online and what was on offer was vastly different. We were supposed to get a chefs tasting of appetizers which was only side of greens and some bread. No ala carte options-pretty much a fixed menu to choose from. And on the pricier side.

This restaurant is amazing! It’s a very unique menu style, where you pick one main course and the chef picks the appetizers, sides and dessert. You share everything with your table, except your main course, so you get to try so many different dishes, all of which were absolutely delicious. I told the server about my food preferences and they were honored. There were four of us there and we all loved our main courses and all of the creative, incredibly tasty dishes that came with them. It’s really a great value for the amount of dishes you get. I can’t wait to go back! The quality of food is definitely among the best in NYC.

The fixed menu with the chef preparing the antipasto and 1st course was at 1st a little unnerving, but the selection and the presentation was superb. Not an everyday meal but one for special occasions. They also have an ala carte menue. The whole fish was prepared perfectly. The backed little neck clams were to die for.

We had a great time at Vai! The food was outstanding - the ingredients were fresh and the kitchen clearly pays attention down to the smallest details of every dish. The restaurant has a cozy yet energetic vibe. The servers/manager were very attentive to our larger group. I would recommend for any occasion!

VaiWas a pleasant surprise. We had several different choices from the prix fixe menu. The brick chicken was tender and flavorful, the Bronzino was light and delicate, and the red snapper catch of the day was delicious. The appetizers were all wonderful. The price was unbeatable for the quality of the food. This is a definite must stop on the upper West side.

I was extremely unhappy with this restaurant. I let them know with my reservation that I was allergic to garlic and also called to make sure they could accommodate me. They assured me they could. And reassured me again upon arrival. I was reassured several times by my waiter as well. While eating dinner I found 2 garlic cloves in the dish I was served. I was severely ill all night and couldn’t sleep til 4 in the morning. Ruined a day of my brief vacation. They apologized and comped my meal but that did not make up for this serious carelessness.

What is clear, this place has gone through a transformation. If the good looking dark featured gent who always could be found in this space assuring excellence has anything to do with this version of V, there are too few signs of it. Things have moved more toward the Thai side of the street. This could be good but here the flavors fall short. The inclusion of loud hard rock music is different and out of place for what I was expecting: Mediterranean and foodie worthy fare and atmosphere. Neither to be found here any longer. Live and learn. Important to mention, service was good. I wish this version well, they’ll need it.

While the food was excellent, the service was lacking. While the servers were prompt with taking our order and getting the first course out, it was the small things that would have made the experience more enjoyable. For example, when serving appetizers for a group of people, making sure there were serving utensils available. Similarly, we ordered one of the dinners for 2 people, and again the serving utensils were lacking. While there was some time that elapsed between the first course and the main course, the servers were inattentive to us during this time. After we finished our cocktails, we were hoping to get some wine with dinner. We couldn't get the servers attention. And then they came and cleared away our first course dishes and brought out the dinner almost immediately. We ordered wine promptly at this point, but were done with dinner by the time it came out. A little more attentiveness would have gone a long way to make the experience more enjoyable.

We like Vai a lot, but this meal was a bit disappointing. There were 4 of us, and 3 of us ordered the veal scallopini, a special that sounded great. But it was pounded too thin, overcooked, and somewhat lacking in sauce or flavor. On the other hand, the Brussel sprouts and octopus were great.

Best Neighborhood restaurant on the UWS - without doubt. Sense of arrival os always genuine and gracious. Service is unobtrusive and anticipatory. I didn't even see my water glass get filled and drink about 4 or 5 glasses over a meal. The food is artful and perfectly presented. Wine selection and wine service is elegant and value oriented. My only complaint, it was cold outside that night... but inside we felt warm, welcomed and appreciated as they always make you feel.

The food is delicious, but there are very few menu selections, and they are all high priced. For example, there were only 2 pasta items, each more than $30 for small, appetizer-size portions. The fish was excellent, with a side dish of beautifully cooked broccoli, but even with the (very good) bread, we did not feel like we’d eaten a satisfying dinner for which the bill was more than $50 each.One odd note: an Italian restaurant with almost no Italian wine? Since someone is cooking very well, I hope the management can consider dinner from the perspective of the diner and offer a few more reasonable options.

Warm and friendly, with nice wine list. Candlelit with exposed brick walls, menu changes but some highlights are the crudo and also the pasta (if burrata ravioli on menu, go for it). They often start with grilled sturdy bread and some kind of spread (recently, creamy/fresh ricotta). The octopus is very good and so is the burrata starter with grapes. sounds out there, but it really works.

Four of us met for dinner Friday at Vai and we can't wait to go back. The environment had a simple/minimal and trendy feel. The host was friendly and welcoming. We had the arctic char, filet of beef, Bronzino and scallops, everyone enjoyed the dishes. The portions were a little on the "nouvelle" side but this is a plus for some of us. The pear dessert was also tasty.
