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.

What an amazing spot just outside the hustle and bustle of the shopping district. We started with a cheese plate and a flight of red- all delish. Then we moved on to a few small plates- mostly fish/shellfish dishes- all wonderful except for the meatballs that were mediocre. We had the blondie for dessert- fantastic! Finally, we got a seat outside under the tree- lovely. Looking forward to going back!

A warm evening in Walnut Creek was an excellent time to eat on the patio. We started with a chardonnay flight and from there we were sailing. Ahi tartare, scallops, strawberry salad and the pommes frites to match. The small plates add up so either beware or decide you might splurge.

Nothing tops the fine gourmet cuisine at Va de Vi. The small plates never disappoint - always interesting new selections and stand-by old favorites, consistently prepared well. The wine flights add fun to your meal! My favorite place to eat - I will choose it hands down over any other place in the East Bay.

The foods the thing. Prices are not cheap and portions are not large, but creativity is the order of the day. The atmosphere is constrained by the lack of space, but all in all is pleasent enough.

This is the premium small plates restaurant in east of the Berkeley hills. Dishes are in constant flux, so there is always something new to try. On average we order about 5-6 dishes between the two of us, which probably runs about $75+ without drinks, tax or tip.
