First visit this past Friday, won’t be the last. The prix fixe menu is strong all the way through with full-sized portions. Recommend adding the wine pairing. At $30 it’s an absolute bargain. It’s a great space as well.

It was our second visit to Vie and it was as good as the first time pre covid.
We chose tuna crudo, scallops, and the beef. For dessert: the St Louis buttercake.
Great wine selection. Our waiter Thierry was very attentive and enjoyable to talk to.

Two couples for dinner on a warm July evening. Nice patio seating available but we chose a quiet table inside in the back past an attractive full service bar.

Vie is always awesome. The combination of preserved foods and the flavor profiles of the acids during the canning process with the excellent culinary creations of the chef are always amazing.

Elegant and amazing! This restaurant is a favorite for special occasions and provides a wonderful date night. The food has a simple appearance but a complex flavor. I'm impressed every time I dine here.

We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner here at the end of May. We wanted to be sure to enjoy this beautiful location before experiencing the new one!

By far my favorite place in the suburbs! Is it worth the trip from the city? That is the question. It's a must go if you are in the area!

We enjoyed our Birthday dinner. The food and service was excellent. We will miss coming to this restaurant for special occasions since this restaurant is closing next week. Every time we come here, we experience flavor combinations that we have never tasted before.
