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 the hospitality of your team. I just like to give a huge shout out to Ryan, Danny, Mallory, Tara and Memmo (spelling?) for their kindness and professionalism.  A great meal and great people, …you can’t beat it. Everyone...

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.

Dear Michael, Thank you for the wonderful dinner last night.  The service and food were top-notch! I especially appreciate all the accommodation made for our employee with the gluten allergy.  Very much appreciated. I gave you a 5-star yelp review.  I highly recommend your restaurant.

Hi Michael! Dinner was absolutely amazing.  I can't thank you enough for your recommendations on the menu and for putting together such an incredible experience for my friends and family!  Your restaurant was posted on Facebook by everyone who attended.  Quite a few people told me that it was one of the best meals they ever had.  I would have to agree with them.  The timing between courses was spot on.  Never lagging and never rushed, just perfect. You have a beautiful restaurant and a...

"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 started off with drinks, my wife ordered a glass of Milbrandt Pinot Gris, and I ordered a Daisy Cutter Pale Ale (Half Acre Beer Company, Chicago).  The wine list is organized from sweet (top) to dry (bottom), so my wife was...

"We were there last night. Myself, my wife Karen, and her son Payton. We've been to fire & wine several times before and we're at this restaurant once this past summer. I have to say the food was outstanding the service was incredible. They made you feel very welcome. Michael and Anthony came up to our table sat down and talked to us. Made you feel right at home. I had the vodka which was incredible. That's my favorite of all time. Karen had the scallops which was the best she's ever had....

"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 Peppered Shrimp + Polenta Fritto Misto and Charred Broccolini and spaghetti as side. We even went for affogato! They were all delicious.  Even the side broccolini was so tasty and awesome.  Also the variety of their drinks astonished...

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.

"VAI's has been open for 6 months and is already #1 on our list of restaurants in the Western suburbs. Ample parking, great beer and wine selections, efficient and friendly staff and terrific food. My favorites are the meatball sliders, salmon and pizza."

Laura B. ~ MetLife

"Everything went super well. I received a lot of very positive feedback on how wonderful the food was and the service was amazing. A definite hit and I’ll be reaching out in the future when I need a venue for some of our smaller gatherings and senior leadership dinners. Thank you for being a very gracious and accommodating host! Happy Holidays!"

Stephanie Pendolino

I heard from many in our group that this was our best friendsmas, mostly b/c of the food but also the service! I am so happy that you guys are close to us now. A couple of the couples had not yet been there & will be back! You & Anthony have always put your heart into your work & I don’t know another place where you see the owners every time you go in. We love Vai's and you guys.

Diana Christopher ~ Naperville

Derek Christopher ~ Naperville

"Superb food!! Shows a lot of care and class When greeted and having a chat with the owner, Mike. Brandon was excellent and never let our water glasses go empty. Keep up the great work! We shall return!"

Mary B. Recommends VAI’s on Yelp

"We dined here shortly after they opened and we really liked it. We ordered a burrata appetizer with the wood fired grapes that my husband was hesitant to order, but we both ended up loving it along with one of the homemade pasta dishes. Everyone from the hostess to the waitress to the manager were extremely welcoming and friendly which in my opinion is refreshing. I thought the service was excellent by the waitress. The manager came over to our table and introduced himself and asked if we...
