The food, as always, was delicious. Our waiter, Loris, was engaging and knowledgeable. I hesitate to dine there because the noise level can be deafening.

Very short menu with mostly fish options. Only two pastas. That said every dish was delicious and nicely presented. More than adequate size portions.

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.

Food was delicious. From the octopus app to the pear tart dessert. We had reservations but had to wait while our table was set up. But was given a complimentary glass of wine.

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.

First time at Vai. Went with my adult daughter. Read reviews and thought would try it. Was very presently surprised. Place was pretty packed which was a good sign. It was clear from the start there was a reason for this. Excellent experience in every way. Service and food were top notch. We started off with sharing the brussel sprout salad which was amazing. Then I had the artic char and my daughter had the seared scallops. Both were outstanding. Wine selection also had a lot of unusual options and we sampled a couple. Would highly recommend Vai!

After a few tries - VAI is our absolute favorite restaurant on the UWS - if not New York. The service matches the unbeleivable offering of food and drink. The staff makes you feel welcome and Loris is the ultimate gracious host. We cannot wait to return.

If you’re having a full dinner, ask to be seated at the large, communal tables. The smaller tables are better for drinks or appetizers or salads.

We have been wanting to try this restaurant and finally decided to go... just the two of us - mid week. It blew us away. The arrival was genuine and friendly. The space was simple yet elegant and the food was artful, meticuliosly created and presented with such enthusiasm. Each course we enjoyed was incredible... so much so, we changed our Saturday night reservations with friends coming to NYC to Vai Restaurant and we know they will be as impressed as we were.

What a fabulous meal! From the waiter to the bus woman.. all were nice and helpful. They brought us tasty toasted bred with the yummiest ricotta for the table. I had the branding which we asked to be filleted and it was no problem. It was the best branding I think I have ever had. The brown butter sauce was simply perfect. I would definitely go back again and soon!

I was underwhelmed by everything we ordered.
The "spicy" margarita wasn't spicy at all and was tiny.
The ricotta that they serve to the table had absolutely 0 flavor.
The brussel sprouts were mushy and uninteresting, as was the octopus.
The burrata and hamachi were fine, nothing special.
Our waiter brought out the octopus with a few other dishes and then came back and took it away, saying there wasn't enough space on the table for it. When we re-received the octopus about 15 minutes later, it was a much smaller portion than was originally put on our table. Incredibly strange.
Overall pretty slow service but we weren't in a huge hurry so not overly bothered.
There are a lot of other restaurants in the area more worth your time., ESPECIALLY for the price. This place isn't cheap. I'm definitely bummed I spent $60 here.
