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.

Food is above average but overpriced $32 for a plate of pasta is just outrageous

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.

Small portions for pasta which is a disappointment at the prices. Brussel sprouts were a let down. Cool atmosphere. Fish was great as was tuna appetizer.

Delicious meal. We ordered the burrata and hamachi appetizers and the branzino and lobster tagliatelle entrees. Everything tasted great, as did the grapefruit and Thai basil martini. I hope to find my way to the UWS soon to eat here again.

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.

Vai continues to impress with it's immaculate service and exquisite cuisine. This restaurant is further proof that you don't need a book for a menu to provide a consistently high quality culinary experience in a charming atmosphere. Looking forward to returning again in the near future.

Wow that was one delicious dinner! 4 diners, 2 had veal chops and 2 had scallops - each amazing! Shared the Brussels sprouts and octopus appetizers, wow! Not cheap but totally worth it. Would've had dessert but all they had was a pear tart and we weren't feelin' it. Will definitely be back 🙂

Vai’s website is very deceptive, giving the impression that it’s a spacious venue with an extensive menu. Not so at all. The restaurant is tiny and the menu does not even include a red sauce. When asked about this, our server simply said “yes, we know. We select a few items from the website menu and change them from time to time.” We had a party of 8, including two kids who were hard pressed to find an appealing dish. No spaghetti or meatballs here! Seating was an uncomfortable long skinny table quite near the door, the only table that could accommodate us. We’ll never go back.

Very disappointing. The food was tasty enough, but nothing special. My daughter ordered a scallop appetizer for $29. It came with three scallops. I ordered chicken under a brick which tasted as though it wasn’t fully cooked. My Sangria was sour (though I did ask for less sugar—I wished they recommended something else). The waitstaff was just not that nice, Other than a woman who was serving the meals. Opentable notes that this is under $30. It is not. It was expensive and not worth it.
