VANA - South End
- 11AM-3PM, 4:30PM-10PM
VANA has been open a little over 6 weeks, I wouldnt expect things to be perfect. We didnt experience the same issues that others. Since they don take reservations, we were able to hit another place for a few cocktails until our table was ready. The food had good flavor and the small plates were delivered at the right time. We had a few issues, but more nitpicking than anything. Small plates /appetizers portions are made for a table of 4 not 6. They brought out an extra extra drink. Normally they would comp that, but didnt at first. When questioned they took it off. Prices to us were high for portion sizes, but not the end of the world. We will be back again. #Support Local
My friend and I really enjoyed our entire experience. We sampled several drinks and each was delicious and perfectly spirit forward. My dining partner is a chef and did our ordering and seemed impressed with his choices. My favorite was the bone marrow and the bison tartar. Our waiter offered informed suggestions and was a pleasure from start to finish. The restaurant itself is super cute, a great date spot with interesting food options- happy to have such an option in Charlotte.
Delicious food and a really great atmosphere. I love every part of the restaurant and the staff was great. All of our food was great, but I especially liked the Trout dip (just ask for some extra bread). Can't wait to go back
Great atmosphere, amazing food and friendly staff!
Today was our anniversary, and my partner placed an online pickup order from Bardo (sister restaurant). For some reason he was able to order online, but in actuality Bardo is closed on Mondays. Quite the dilemma right? Actually, not really. The management found a way to make it work. They called Vana and worked out some stellar off the menu replacements for us. We had crudo, bison tartare, and a fish entree. Everything was delicious, especially the crudo. Thank you Bardo and Vana for making our anniversary dinner happen despite the technological glitches!
