You can order items individually, but why when you can order as a table and sample a few tasty dishes. Perfect for 2 people -date night or friends- to get 3 or 4 small plates. The food is consistently good and even though it is...More

We celebrated Father's Day and my stepson's birthday Sunday evening and really enjoyed everything. The food is great - we tasted our way through the menu sharing each dish, which allowed us to try more things. Every dish came out perfectly. A large selection of...More

Went on Saturday night after making reservations on open table. They sat us right on time after offering us an outside table which would have been nice but not worth the extra 30 min wait. (Showed up starving at 9pm from the east coast). Opened...More

We came here for a late lunch and the place wasn't overly busy. We had to sit inside but would have preferred to sit outside. First impression was that the service was very slow but finally someone came to our table to at least take...More

The food was very good, but be advised that this is a tapa-style restaurant with quite small portions. I had the halibut and for $16 I have had better tapas at a more reasonable price. We decided to sit in the alley as it was...More

Several obvious clues. They are busy, but never rush guests; the kitchen rocks; the wine list and flight pairings are sophisticated, unpretentious, and span the globe. I noticed that one of my selections was from a corked bottle. Not only did they open a new...More

Amazing small plates. Great wine pairing. Sometimes they are so busy you get food tossed at you when you aren't ready for the next course. Sit at the kitchen if you can...very entertaining!

I've been here many times with many people and there is always something really wonderful on the menu. Their wine flights are a joy and the small plates make for good sharing or can be carefully chosen to create a wonderful meal.

My wife & I have been eating at Va deVi since they first opened. The food is as good today as it was when it first opened. The service has always been excellent. I would recommend to anyone.

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.
