This was another extraordinary dining experience. We were a group of six. David was our server and was about as good as they get again. Food quality remains spectacular and the menu changes frequently based upon availability of local products. Vie remains our "go to" upscale restaurant in the western burbs!
Excellent service and a great atmosphere. The drinks and cheese plate were very good. Shared a salad, vegetarian dish, and roasted carrots for dinner and all were fresh, flavorful and summery. The wine list and cocktails were great. Had coffee and butter cake for dessert and both were amazing. This restaurant is always outstanding!
Absolutely outstanding. From the service to the food, this was a remarkable experience.
A pleasant dining experience, but nothing more. The red wines by the glass were not as good as they should have been for the prices. The salad and soup were good but not great. They went overboard with ramps on the menu. The burger was terrific but the fries were not hot-yes they offered to remake them but they should have been hot when I was served. The service was good. I would not go out of my way to eat here again.
Wonderful Anniversary spent on Saturday night at Vie. We chose the 5 course tasting menu. Each course was remarkably delicious and made excellent use of the freshest ingredients of the season. The service was impeccable - friendly but not obtrusive. Everyone seemed to enjoy working there which is reflected in ready smiles and interesting conversation. We will be back again to revel in the change to Autumnal cuisine.
VIE is a joyful experience in fine dining. The restaurant is modern and inviting. The service is friendly but professional. The food is absolutely creative and inspired. A near-perfect dining experience!
We got the 5-course tasting menu. As always Paul and his staff crushed it. Delish.
Vie never disappoints. The menu is always full of new tastes, while remaining centered on fresh, local ingredients.
Diane and I had a weekend with my four siblings and we knew we wanted to have dinner with them at Vie, our favorite restaurant. It was the first time for two of my siblings and we all enjoyed a wonderful dinner- great food, great place and awesome people always make it a special dining experience.
We got a groupon for the 5 course tasting meal, so this represented a good deal for a high end place such as Vie. We went on a Wednesday evening, and the restaurant was pretty empty, so our experience might not be the same as a busier time.
The wait staff was excellent, and the ambiance was understated, it was quiet, and we had no one seated next to us on the banquette style seating (which might have been a little close on a crowded weekend).
The food was generally excellent, and if anything there was too much of it for a 5 course tasting menu- portions were generous. The beef dish was probably our least favorite, but overall very good.
The five course chef's selection and wine pairing was terrific!
Everyone at Vie made our 25th wedding anniversary celebration very special! Food was excellent, service was outstanding! Special thanks to Julius and Patrick.
Always a great experience and terrific food and drinks. Very knowledgeable wait staff.
Fit for foodies but also outstanding for others. Local ingredients combined in unique combinations. The restaurant starts with a free taster, always a unique blend of flavors (for our night, scallops cerviche...outstanding). Fresh bread. We started with Cheese platter that we let our waitress select - three delicious cheeses coupled with unique tasting jams, nuts, cherries. We had Little Gem Wedge salad which had great flavors. My wife had Char fish entre and I had the White Fish, both outstanding. (The pork and steak also looked great at table next to us). Worth the drive, best fine dining we've found in western suburbs; a type of upscale restaurant one might find downtown. Desert menu somewhat limited and no go to Chocolate but by then, we were quite full already.
Strong recommendation if near Western suburbs.
Love this place! Went to pick up wine purchased at a recent wine tasting at Vie. Stayed for dinner! The fresh morel omelet was so delicious as was the octopus with blood sausage. Can’t wait to go back.
I went for their Mother's Day Dinner. It was well worth the drive! Every drink I sipped, every bite I took, was soon yummy! & My kids had a great time too! I will definitely be back =D
Mother’s Day was a great experience for my wife and me, the food was terrific and so was the service. Could not ask for more
Lovely Mother’s Day dinner. Every menu choice was tempting, so we got one of each that was on offer for the day and tried it all. Service was great, though we ordered coffee and Baileys with our dessert and apparently the bar was backed up so we didn’t get it. We weren’t mad, because we were fully satisfied.
Vie is by far our favorite restaurant of all time. Paul Virant and his entire team make and present the most delicious and interesting food there is to be had. The location and atmosphere are both convenient and very classy/fun/hip. The farm-to-table and seasonal menu is the best we've ever enjoyed, and it constantly changes, making each experience deliciously different. Furthermore, Paul and his team are great and very fun and talented people - the best team we know of and another reason why you'll absolutely love Vie.
Normally really like Vie, but the Mother's Day menu was a disappointment. The dutch baby was just ok with the toppings really fresh, but the pancake itself was underwhelming. The steak and eggs had no flavor whatsoever. The kids menu was also unimaginative. Hot dog was not very good and the doughnut was not edible because it was so dry. For the price, left pretty unsatisfied. Will stick to normal dinner menu.
Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch from start to finish! Prix fixe menu for adults and children with several options. Wonderful service. Great job Paul Virant and team.
We love this place. My wife and I love the ambience and the food and how the menu changes. The two bartenders, Patrick and Julius are wonderful and always helpful.
Great meal! They have very nice food here. The atmosphere is also very refined. I loved the cream cheese ice cream I had for dessert. Also, very nice morels in the asparagus dish.
Excellent attention to detail. Very classy establishment.
One of the best restaurants in DuPage county. The appetizers are fantastic.
Amazing food. So delicious!! We had a wonderful experience at Vie
Special wonderful almost magical
Amazing... simply amazing. Some of the best food I've ever had. It's no wonder Vie earned a Michelin Star and is a top 40 restaurant in the US.
Not sure when Vie started doing large portions but I’m not going to complain because that means I have a really tasty second meal!!! Maybe that’s the difference between the tasting menu and ala carte dining. Either way, dinner was delicious, service was courteous and overall wonderful time was had
Vie by and far our favorite restaurant. The team, the atmosphere and the food is simply awesome.
What a lovely place, an experience, not just a meal! The best service, too!
My wife and I really enjoyed everything about Vie. The food was amazing, service was as well. They have a wonderful wine list and definitely leave a little room for dessert. We will be back soon.
Been meaning to go for a while; finally went to celebrate my birthday with my husband and child. They don't have a children's menu but were able to deliver something kid-friendly. We were there on a Wednesday so the restaurant wasn't too crowded nor loud. Husband and I really enjoyed the food and service. It's a foodie farm-to-table. They surprised me with an additional dessert for my birthday.
Can a restaurant be perfect? Apparently the answer is yes. Vie is that restaurant. Warm, personal, delicious, attentive, beautiful. Congratulations, Vie. Well-done in every way.
Our service was amazing! We had Ky as our server and she was extremely sociable and knowledgeable about the menu, and on items she wasn’t sure if she went for got the chef or the wine master for us to chat with. The atmosphere was very cozy, but we didn’t feel as though we were in a cramped area. It was definitely the ideal place for a special occasion dinner!
My friend and I didn't like it. It was something new to try, but not for us.
The food was truly delicious. The ambiance was great. The price was very fair for that level of quality food. Also, did I mention the food was amazing!
We absolutely enjoyed our meal at Vie on Saturday night. We were a party of five that shared appetizers, salads, and desserts. Go when you have time to enjoy the company of family and friends and want to try new preparations of seasonal dishes. Savor the food, the atmosphere and your family.
Wonderful. Wish perennial virant was still open. So delicious.
Vie was good but unfortunately not as exceptional as it is made out to be. We enjoyed everything and were even treated to a backstage tour of chef’s preservation and pickling process!
We opted to do a few dishes over the tasting menus and had the fried chicken livers, gnocchi, duck and lamb cassoulet. Livers were good but a bit over fried but the blood orange and sauce definitely made the dish shine. Gnocchi was fantastic with a blueberry accent. The duck was delicious, prepared three ways over root vegetables, the dish is very heavy and a lot of food. The lamb dish was good but extremely rich, so rich that it was difficult to eat it all. The entree portions are way too much food and we’d be happy to pay the same price for a manageable portion. Leaving with brown bags in hand is not fun. For desert we had the 24 carrot doughnuts. Yes they are as good as the sound and the candied blood oranges were a happy plus to the dish. I could eat a jar of the oranges!!
There are some really great things about Vie and a few short comings but worth a visit. The staff really makes the place inviting so kudos to all of them.
