So unprofessional

I booked Vagabondo for an important dinner of 10 people on the busiest night of the week. 48 hours prior to my reservation Vagabondo called to confirm. Then less than 24 hours prior to the reservation I was called again and advised that the owner had booked the entire place for a private party and they were cancelling my reservation. The young girl who called had little to say except she was sorry for ruining my plans. Oh, and that if I wanted they could seat my party at 2:30 pm. For dinner?! Um, no. I asked for a call from the owner which never came. Very poor taste. I will never dine at this establishment again. Interesting reading other similar reviews around the web where owner doesn't care or do anything to rectify the situation.

Corporate Function at Vagabondo

We had our company summer party at Vagabondo and it was a smash hit!!! The lounge and patio were reserved for company of 150 people. We had their party menu which was a delightful surprise, as most often at other venues the food isn't very good. Everything was fresh and very tasty. Their DJ was really superb, played requests and just kept the tempo going. We LOVED the patio setup with their booth seating and it is recessed from the street. Overall one of the best company parties and can't wait to come back and have dinner at Vagabondo. Thank you to Vagabondo and staff for a great party.

Great Atmosphere and great food!!!!

Tried Vagabondo for dinner with another couple and we were impressed!!! Service was spot on, the atmosphere and their patio has got to be the best in the city. Food was fresh and the portions were really big. I had the Linguini Monte Mare, with their rose sauce that was simply delicious. The shrimps were cooked perfect. My wife had the risotto vitello, really good. The veal just was soo tender. Would recommend to anyone and have already made plans to go back.

Best Patio Ever!!!

Went to Vagabondo after work on Thursday after hearing rave reviews from others. We loved their patio, the booth seating was really nice. They had a DJ spinning music and the atmosphere was amazing. We shared appetizers and had drinks. The calamari was really good, as well as the coconut shrimps. A lot of different cocktails to choose from. Overall this was an amazing time and we can't wait to go back. Stayed 4 hours on their patio!!!!

We got there and it wasn’t until I asked for a server to take our order, that someone stopped at our table. Servers were walking by us all the time and none would stop, We waited for about 20 minutes before a waiter came to us after I had asked for a server, not a good first impression, not sure we’ll be back. The food though was good.

There were two tables of about 6 people around us, where they were so extremely loud, and only drinking (not eating). This ruined the evening for my fiancé and I, and my suggestions would be to seat people who are not eating in the lounge or bar area.

I was so disappointed. The only good thing about this place was the fact that the waitress was really trying but operating in the wrong environment. 1. There were barely people in the dining room and yet it took forever to get our food (literally forever) And the restaurant acknowledged somewhat they were super slow just don’t understand why so super slow My colleagues ordered a filet rare and it came over well done if that exists and the cut was so so tough. It’s not an extremely pricey place but still no one liked their food at all. No creativity or just the basics. cheers to the waitress... she was trying but 😏

Been to Vagabondo twice now and it was a great experience both times. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service was great with the right amount of attention. My daughter had pizza which she could only eat half of and they wrapped it up for her. When we got home we realized that all the slices of pizza in the box had been individually wrapped in foil and they provided a set of plastic cutlery and napkin with the box. It was an very nice touch. Will definitely return and recommend Vagabondo!

Atmosphere and service was exceptional. Our waitress was very friendly and hospitable. We went in to try the Winterlicious menu. The food took a while to come and the flavor was nothing to jump out of your seat for. The quality and presentation, on the other hand, were great! Overall, a good experience.

The atmosphere was perfect for date night and the food even more so! Our waiter was nice and was fast delivering our drinks as well as taking our order. The food was very good and the portions were perfect, we will definitely come here again the next time we are in the area. We did, however, have to wait around for our check for a while before our waiter was able to deliver it to us. Although the place was starting to fill up for the late dinner crowd so we're not blaming anyone for the delayed check. I would suggest if you have plans after dinner to take that into account when you are deciding on what time to book your reservation.
