They make the food in front of you. What more can I say? That's as fresh as it gets. My favorite thing to do is concocting different sauces and dressings using the fresh herbs growing all around the restaurant and the olive oil at the table. Make a Greek olive oil herb infused dressing for your bread at the dining... More

Finally, a Cobb salad that is fresh! The grilled chicken melts in your mouth. All ingredients are fresh including the bread! I highly recommend this place. Love it!

The idea for this restaurant is obviously from Europe. Little quirky but manageable. The food was good. Had a nice salad. But I was really in the mood for some gluten-free pasta with meat sauce. I also couldn't figure out how to get a glass of wine. Maybe some more transparency on how to get that would be helpful.

Well, if you want to have the most stressful dinner of your life, Vapiano will give you a 5 star stress experience. First of all, there were not many chefs on duty the evening we visited for dinner at about 6 pm. Second, they seemed to have no idea what they were doing. They just seemed very incompetent and confused.... More

Excellent Italian inspired menu and wonderful staff. You are handed a RF card when you enter and use it to scan when you order your food. The staff makes your order fresh and then you pick up your food to take to a table. When you are done, simply take your RF card to the cashier and settle up. Excellent... More

We enjoyed the pizza and carbonara pasta here. Interesting that you decide ingredients for the made to order menu. A bit pricey, but had big portions, nice atmosphere and quick service. Full bar, beer and wine available.

We went in got our card and preceded to the various chef stations to place our order. We like that everyone gets a card and you can choose what you want and... More

I want to go higher marks for this but can't quite get there. The all ala carte approach is novel and scalable to all appetites. Food quality is good and favorable. Short comings were a few staff miscues. An uncaring bartender, brand new chef needing coaching and a forgotten order diminished the experience. Still for variety and family friendly atmosphere...

This felt like a college cafeteria instead of a restaurant. They give you a card you go to your station of what you want to order. They cook it In front you while you wait, wait and wait. My pasta needed to cook longer, the flavor was good. Absolutely no service at this restaurant, if it can be classified as... More
