While in La Defense to teach a workshop I had diner at Vapiano twice and was not disappointed either time. The ordering system is interesting, using a card to track what you order. The folks at each food preparation station were very helpful and explained...choices and options. I had pizza both times and it was delicious with a nice red sauce and flavorful ingredients. Going from station to station to order food was definitely easier the second time around, so don't be afraid to ask for help and directions!More
Alright pizzas, even tho not too Italian. Prices are correct for la defense district. When there for business meeting and we had to wait quite a long time to order. You actually gotta queue all the time, not the right concept id say.
I should have read reviews carefully before heading over to this place for dinner--we wanted a venue that would have some kid friendly food near our hotel (ravioli in particular, which my son likes and they had the vegetarian version of it). Our only other...experience with Vapiano was in Washington DC where we had ordered take out and it was really tasty. My jetlagged family and I went to the Paris location and sorely regretted it: 40 minutes after waiting in line I made it to the front only to find out that the ravioli is not available because of a "national ravioli outage" (what?!). After getting our 2 spaghetti dishes, my kid was overtired and didn't even want to eat any more and my husband and I were fed up. Food tasted ok, and portions were generous, but the pasta was overcooked. This wasn't the dinner experience I was hoping for on my one evening stopover in Paris.More
After a long time walking around the shopping center "Les 4 Temps" at the west part of Paris. We discover accidentally the Restaurant Vapiano. We tried 2 plates "ESSENZIALE" an "CAPRESE 2.0". We had to wait about half hour to finally start to Dinner !!!
Went to have a look around the shopping centre and decided this looked like a good option, BIG mistake. Waited over 1 hour for some food and some didn't even turn up. When we enquired as to where it was we were told they were...very busy and should not complain! After speaking to the manager he refunded the cost of the two meals that were missing and assurred us they would be ready very soon. After another wait the food turned up. The calzone pizza was cold and the mac' n ' cheese was not mac ' n' cheese. It had ham and mushrooms in and was also cold. Lots of excuses made by the manager but quite frankly it was appalling.More

We were shopping in the shopping mall and went to Vapiano as we are used to the quality and service of a local Vapiano restaurant in The Hague. However, compared to our previous experience we endured a long wait (for 1 hour!), unprofessional cook who...could not make a proper carbonara, unprofessional bar tender who did not have proper wine glasses and poured my wine into an aperol glass and dirty dishes. To top this up we ended up paying double the price what we usually pay in The Hague. To avoid for sure!More
I love the fact that their pasta is amazing and pizza as well.
For me the only downside is that you have to wait so long until the food is prepared and if you have one hour of break time then I think you won’t...enjoy the best of this place.
On weekends i totally recommend.More
The taste of the food was OK. For the price, the service size was a bit small. They always cook fresh in front of you which is good but time consuming as you cannot order 2 dishes simultaneously. While entering, they give you cards which...you have to scan while ordering food at different counters. The chef then enter the items that you add in your food. You have no chance to see what is entered in your card. While paying they scan the card and charge you. I had twice the experience that more items were entered in my card and I was overcharged. Once it was not big a difference but next time they charged EUR 34 more on a EUR 117 bill. Friend paid for it so I had no chance to double check at the time of payment. On checking it after half and hour, we realized that they entered a 2x pasta dish and 3 more drinks than we ordered. We went back but there was no chance. The manager was not helpful though friendly. He asked us to come back again next day which we had no chance.
So always double check your invoice.More
