PROs: intriguing menu, fine ambiance, fine food. CONs: bad, despicable service, unwilling to make alternative suggestions in case of a specific food intolerance. A dismissive attitude that should be unfit with this concept restaurant. Conclusions: my experience was spoiled, you might be luckier.

We used Pura Vida for a high-end company event at our facility. Katie, along with JoAnn and Chef Brandt handled the details beautifully. The food was amazing, and the presentation was gorgeous. Everything was flawless.

Nicely prepared and fresh food. Excellent for foodies. Went with two of my daughters, one of whom is vegetarian. Almost as many dishes for her to choose from as the rest of us.
