The Food here is always excellent, and they are known for their brunch fare. Great drinks from the bar add to the experience. I like to sit in the bar as I feel you get a bit better service there. I have sat in the dining room several times and the service is a bit slower, that is my one gripe. I would recommend the Osso Bucco for dinner, their signature dish, and the Eggs Benedict at brunch. Cheers!

This is a lovely restaurant with great service and great food. The dinner drinks were very good and not the usual fare. Our main course of salmon was one of the best fish dishes I have ever eaten. It was a wonderful dining experience and would love to return! I do suggest reservations.

Walked in for lunch at the VQ on Christmas Eve. The staff were friendly and courteous. We were seated back in what is normally the restaurant entrance during warmer months.

We had side Caesar salads to start, followed by the trout w/ broccolini. Wait staff were very accommodating and helpful, and the food was excellent.

Food was awesome, lunch can be noisy but not terrible. Food is spendy but not terribly high. Seating seems adequate but it can fill up quickly, reservations may be a good idea.
