Top notch service and excellent food. Opted for the patio, but wish we would have stayed inside. Road noise was steady. We did scallops and filet. Both great choices.

Terrapin was a great find! We had the four-course tasting menu and the sommelier wine pairing. Both the food and the wine were exquisite. I had the beets, risotto, scallops and chocolate elegance. The food tasted fresh, with layered complex flavors. The dessert was out...More

At a conference, one of the speakers mentioned this restaurant as exceptional, and I was not disappointed. The ambiance was elegantly eclectic, the waitstaff were very gracious and non-hovering-attentive, and the food was superb. I promised myself a reason to return! Looking forward to possibly...More

I write this review with sadness in my heart. The reason being that we are leaving VB in the morning and can't eat there again. The meals there are amongst the best I've had anywhere. I had the Bouillabaisse. Very much the best Bouillabaisse I've...More

Yeah; I'd stick with that and nice shoes. You won't need a jacket-but, if you did have one you wouldn't feel overdressed if you decided to wear it. It's a first class place and yet not pretentious at all.
