A 2020 Note From VAI’s



What do we say about 2020? “Good day, sir!”, comes to mind…

2020 has challenged us to grow in ways we can and can’t see. It likely won’t be until later, as is so often the case, that we witness and integrate the last year’s experiences personally, professionally, as friends, partners, and parents.


The truth about growth and transformation is that it’s messy and beautiful. One gift of being human is the capacity we have to care for one another. 2020 has required this from most of us and has reminded us how much we need each other and how important we are to each other as a collective.


As we close out this year we take a moment to reflect on all of the customers, friends, and family members that have supported us in the various roles we work and live in. We take a moment to convert our worries into gratitude… that we are able to serve our customers. And we take a moment to remember restaurants that have had to close their doors. We wish their owners and staff a full recovery in 2021. We have and will always appreciate the variety and color a thriving restaurant community brings and hope we rebound as a fuller, stronger community soon.

Cheers to a more whimsical and supportive 2021…

Michael/Anthony, I know in the past I have expressed our gratitude and affection of your restaurant.  We felt we owed you another “kudos and thank you”. Last night, my wife and I had an exceptional experience again.  We like to sit at the bar and enjoy the energy and...

If Vai's was in a conference with 20 other teams....nobody would have a chance. 96-0 would be the score. Always knock it out of the park. Staff is amazing, Mallory Kicks A**!!!!!! And all others that helped her.

"Amazing experience.  My wife and I dined in on the Saturday immediately after Valentines Day, so we were expecting a long wait, but we were seated extremely quickly (without reservations).  My first impression of the restaurant is that it was very nice/clean/new.  We...

"Wow! We now have another favorite restaurant in Naperville. Knowing there's a new restaurant after a BBQ house or something on Rt 59, we hadn't tried it yet.  Today we gave it a try and, wow, we loved it so much! We were not very hungry but had: Beets Salad Spicy...

Best dining experience I've had in years. The food was cooked exactly as it was ordered. The service was impeccable and we were treated like we were the only ones in the restaurant (we weren't). Definitely would recommend this venue.
