    Poor Value

    Inedible food

    Excellend food

    My favorite!

    I love Vai! I went to the old spot for years before the building got torn down, followed them downtown to Vai Spuntino, and was extremely happy when Vincent came back to the Upper West Side! The food here is amazing. Everyone I know that has eaten here an

    Rude staff

    We made a reservation well in advance for a party of four and we arrived exactly on time. During our 30 minute wait we were ordered to stand at various places in the restaurant. When we politely asked about our table, the maître d' was extremely rude to
