Had lunch yesterday and this place is on point. Started with miso soup and then had the Cuban sandwich. Offered as a wrap but the waiter got the kitchen to make me a sando. I thought I knew what a Cubano was but this one set me straight. Fantastic! May go have another one today.

Family of 4 went for Thanksgiving Buffet. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. Choices of the buffet were phenomenal and snow crabs and scallops made the price per person feel reasonable. Only wish they had a bigger selection of bubblies.

My family and I had a wonderful experience at Vida. Our waitress, Ari, was sweet as can be and helped us choose food based on all our different allergies. The food was excellent. We all had matzah ball soup and loved it! The bread basket is also delicious and the burgers are yummy. Ari was really great with my father,... More

Customizable Bloody Mary options. Very good food. Service was good but it took forever for the food to come out of the kitchen.

I'm not a fan of hotel restaurants generally, mostly because the food usually doesn't measure up to the price. I suppose that might be true of Vida, too. It's expensive, and for the price, some gourmets might say you can find better food for the price. Nevertheless, if you want an upscale casual dining experience, Vida's a good choice. It... More

Breakfast buffet was good but I was expecting more. The selection of fresh fruit was very thin. Only melons and pineapple, no berries. And only very sweet and artificial flavoured yoghurt. No natural yoghurt or greek yoghurt. Service was ok, but it's really annoying when you more or less force customers to pay 18% gratitude by automatically adding it on... More

We had a group of people for a business convention and finished our last morning at the Vida. Everyone ordered the buffet and we had to eat quickly as they clean up by 11:30! The roasted potatoes were delicious with some spicy coating on it! Great selection!

The breakfast buffet had loads of choices and was very tasty, our server was rather obtrusive, we don't need to be asked several times if everything is okay, we would let you know if it wasn't. A bit pricey too. Our evening meal was nothing special, in my opinion lacked seasoning and again very expensive.
