We are at a Vapiano several times while in Germany and were excited when we discovered one in D.C. The food was delicious. All restaurant personnel was super friendly and helpful.

this is an unusual set up, cafeteria style take-away/eat-in restaurant. vapiano's offer a nice airy and relaxed environment. their system is overall very efficient and one can eat freshly cooked food, cooked in front of you within minutes. ordering menu options is slightly complicated but quality and taste of pasta and pizza were great.

I went to Vapiano on Columbus Day and as I had been there before, knew about its unusual approach. You are handed a card, and go straight to one of several food cooking stations where you place your order and have your card swiped. That card is eventually turned in to the cashier on exit to pay for whatever you ordered. This system is interesting to me as its a way to use technology to eliminate wait staff.

The challenge was that Vapiano has multiple pasta stations. This means if you stand behind someone who is ordering multiple meals, or a few people who are ordering meals that you can be in line for 15 - 20 minutes, as I was. That's too long for a fast eating establishment.

The dish I ordered was also too salty and the onions and garlic under cooked, so the wait wasn't rewarded with exceptional food. Now I am thinking about it, the pasta was also under cooked.
