VANA - South End
This was so perfect for my party of 16. It was my birthday and they were so attentive. They even made a special birthday drink for me. The food was amazing and tapas and large dish style. It was an atmosphere to share dinner like thanksgiving dinner. It brought my sister close and they service was fast. David and Giselle was awesome
Food: Wonderful brunch menu! We took three different dishes, but Prosciutto Flatbread is the best. Dont forget to add mimosa to your order, they have 4 different tastes. We took classic one. One of us have garlic allergy, made a sauce sub with no problems. Place: Open kitchen with open fire. Love it! Love the smell. Smell of wood and fire is the best choice for cozy weekend brunch. Restrooms are comfortable, mirrors are super clean. People: Hostess and waiters are welcoming and friendly, gave some recommendations on food. 10/10 Highly recommend.
Vana continues to be a standout among all the restaurants in the Queen City. It has not disappointed to date. Their seasonal items alongside the every changing specials make every experience new and delicious. The drinks are always perfectly balanced and service is friendly and welcoming. (Bar was backed up and they brought along a beer for the wait) Their massive dry aged steak is a great item to share with friends and comes with a great chimichurri and garlic sauce. The roasted vegetables are also a must. Great place to take friends and family from out of town and intimate enough for a date night. Great wine options as well and the dessert tends to always be the perfect dish to end the night. 10/10 highly recommend. Cant wait for the next time I can go back!
Had a fantastic meal at Vana. Loved the open kitchen and design. The food was incredible- we had the burrata, the Elote corn special, the tomato salad, the carmelized veggies and we shared the ribeye!!! They also had a special drink on the menu- a coconut lime margarita that was outrageous. Everything was really amazing and our server James was on point and very knowledgeable about the menu. Cant wait to go back!
Stopped in for brunch after a hike. Wait staff was super friendly and we enjoyed the open kitchen. Food was 50/50. My bloody mary was too spicy and my flatbread was meh, but my husband really enjoyed his beer and steak & eggs. He said the chimichurri was really delicious, but wished the dish would have come with potatoes or toast for the price. Overall a good place and we will be back to try a dinner sometime.
