Please do not make a reservation at this place. There was no reservation when we arrived, staff had no clue even though I showed them the receipt. I had to dispute the charge to get a refund. The reservation was for 20 people, it was my birthday so naturally I am not paying for anyhting on my birthday. My friends... More

Long story short - DO NOT GO THERE ! PLEASE, take this review seriously. We went there several months ago only to get robbed by manager who physically grabbed cell phone from my wife while she was standing on a public sidewalk in front of a bar trying to tape owner cursing and punching me in a face. Owner, along... More

Went there this past weekend for my Birthday with a friend. I saw the pictures on the internet after my friend booked it for my Birthday dinner. Well....they will not reserve a table for you unless you put it a deposit of $25 on line. I get to the place and I see how Filthy dirty it is when we... More

A group of us went to Vango around 12:30 or 1am after a party. We were pretty excited to go 'for old times sake'. Unfortunately, we didn't even make it in the door due to a childish power-play by the bouncers. When we got to Vango, we waited in line for 5 or 10 minutes before we got to the... More

Great place for late night drinks in the open air. Their rooftop bar is very spacious and lots of seating. There is also a bathroom up there, definitely a plus. Service was good. Make sure you you get your drink from the server outside and not the bar inside. We got our first drink at the bar and then went... More

We got there and had to wait for a table. We ordered and paid for two drinks at the bar. When we finally got a seat, about 40 minutes later. It took almost 15 minutes to order our drinks and meals. About 15 minutes went by and the waitress came over and told us that she couldn't remember our order.... More

This past Saturday a group of friends and I attended this place of business. I made an online reservation for V.I.P (bottle service, etc.) for $120 and when we arrived we had to pay a $20 cover charge (7 ppl) to get in. My reservation could not be located, and we were not allowed on the rooftop w/o purchasing an... More

Sky bar is a great feature in the city but the crowd on lower level didn't quite match the vibe. Clear line of demarcations between upper and lower levels. Oh did I mention we were greeted with" Buy a drink before going upstairs." Really? Isn't there a bar up there? Overall, not bad for a night out with friends but... More

This place has a lot of potential but doesn't seem to pull through on it for some reason. It's always empty for dinner but packed at night when they have a dj and dancing. The lighting is dark, seating is awkward, service is eh, BUT...the food is amazing!! I go back for the tuna tacos. All the sushi is good.... More
