Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

My husband and I are frequent diners at Vidalia so when it was time to pick a venue for a private party the choice was clear. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. There was no doubt we would be in good hands with Sal and his A+ staff and we were thrilled to share this special place with our friends and family. They have been raving about it ever since.

“Outstanding Food and Service”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

It has been too long since our last visit to Vidalia. We were fortunate enough to get 8pm reservations on Saturday night for a party of 4. As we walked through the front door, we were immediately struck by the smell of wonderful Italian food. What a great way to start our dining experience! The staff is wonderful and our waiter, Logan, was a true gem throughout the night. While the menu has great choices, I tried the special - Brazilian Tiger Fish a/k/a Pintado. This dish was a WOW! My husband had the homemade fettuccine with mussels, scallops and shrimp. Another WOW! To top it all off, we shared a piece of the Creme Brulee Pie, which was simply amazing! Our compliments to Chef Sal and staff. Vidalia is an outstanding restaurant.

“New Year's Eve...........a bit disappointing from last year.”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

My husband and I went for the first seating on New Year's Eve. The owner and his lovely wife were as gracious as usual, stopping by the tables to welcome us. The couples seated around us were enjoyable. This was a fixed price, appetizer, entree, and dessert. The appetizers were good.
My husband ordered the special salad and i ordered the beet salad, which was filling. Main courses were fillet Mignon, cooked rare, and the scallop and shrimp which was way over cooked.
We were surprised that espresso was an extra charge, which seemed cheap. For the price of the meal, including, tax and required tip, it came close to $200. This was much more than we were expecting, for what we received.

We'll continue to visit them for lunch in the future.

“Excellent Italian cuisine in a bistro setting”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

We went with a group that totaled 8, which is a tight squeeze when there is no outdoor seating. The wait staff were gracious and welcoming. The appetizers were superb; I liked the tuna but sampled a range of others like scallops and these were likewise excellent.

I had the special of scallops, and they were mouth-watering. There's always a sense when scallops are brought to the table that not much is on the plate. But I had to push to finish them. They and the sauce there were in were rich. The accompanying risotto was tangy. It's a BYOB so that keeps costs down.

Overall, an excellent dining experience. We'll be back.
