Description: Va de Vi translates to "It's all about wine!" in Spain's Catalan language. Of course, it's all about food, too! Chef Brad Zeller's menu encourages diners to explore and share a variety of eclectic, international small plate portions. Bold tastes encourage diners to explore the large international wine list, easily navigated by tasting notes. Many wines are offered by the glass in addition to pre-arranged flights to allow diners to compare different wines and discover new favorites. A warm, casual elegance defines the ambiance. Outdoors, dine under an ancient oak tree or grab a table in the picturesque lane.

Went to lunch with a friend visiting from out of town. It was superb. Leisurely lunch. We sat outside and felt like we were in Europe. I had a flight of 3 white wines from France

Lots of unique small plates, great wine flights. Wines by the glass don't ever taste like they've been open for days and days -- good job Va da Vi!

Our first visit to this restaurant and was really impressed with the small plates. We ordered about 10 small plates and every one was great with some standouts: the sashimi, fried brussel sprouts, truffle mac n cheese, lechon, and scallops. Be prepared to spend about $80 per couple for 2-3 small plates per person with drinks.

One of the best wine bars in the East Bay. The wine selection is great with both reds and whites. The staff is very knowledgable about their selections. The food is fantastic! Love sitting outside under the tree's.

Second visit to Va Da VI, with the visits three years apart. Am used to the second visit to a restaurant not living up to my memory of the first. Not the case this time. Excellent again. Attractive and energetic, Va Da VI is clearly a "place to be". Friendly, helpful, efficient and professional service. Interesting and tasty variety of small plates from updated takes on classic appetizers to delicious small plate entrees. Creamy and delicious burrata, pan fried Brussel Sprouts with pears, black truffle Mac & cheese, chicken tiki tacos, roasted black cod on a potato cake. And lots more. Very good wine list with a dozen or more wine flights for those who want to taste multiple varieties. Reservations highly recommended.
