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.

“Perfect place for a romantic birthday dinner!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Excellent service, amazing food, yummy wines and romantic atmosphere. What else do you need for a perfect dinner! We went for 50th birthday as a last minute recommendation from my trainer. We called, and made a reservation. When we arrived the hostess was so bubbly and delightful and said she saved a special spot for us. She sat us in the back patio underneath a huge tree that was all lit up. We then began with a flight of fabulous bubble and moved into flights of various reds. We enjoyed our romantic setting, took our time as we drank our delicious wine coupled with Tuna Tartar, Cauliflower Au Gratin, Grilled Shrimp, Kale salad, Mac & Cheese....all outstanding and with the phenomenal service it definitely was a night to remember. We will be back!

“Best Place to Have a Glass of Wine in Walnut Creek!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

There are quite a lot of places to suggest in Walnut Creek for a nice dinner in town. However, when it comes to wine, Va di Vi Bistro & Wine Bar would be our #1 recommendation! Not only does the restaurant offer a large section of great wines from all over the world, but the food to pair it with is amazing as well. The venue, perfectly decorated, offers indoor and outdoor seatings ideal for all sort of occasions (business, romantic, family, friend, etc.) and the staff is very knowledgable and friendly. Our only regret was that the service. Our waitress was very busy this night and we had a difficult time to get her attention, and it took a very long time for the food to arrive. However, overall, our experience was very good and we definitely recommend this venue.
