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 were hoping for a great Italian meal and the food was good. However, there was a wedding reception going on that was mostly in the outdoor patio and continued on into the restaurant. I guess because of the occasion the place was much more noisy and the loud music being played was certainly not Italian... unfortunately it ruined the overall experience for us. Our waiter was also attending the bar so gave little service to us. Overall the restaurant did not meet our expectations.

Nice restaurant. Good portion sizes. Prime but unassuming location. Quite a large menu. Capable staff. Food takes a bit longer to arrive than expected. Tiny little things keep it from feeling higher-end... one would be serving bread with butter packets like I'm at a Perkins. Second would be the 500 pound uber-eats driver slopped in the lounge area wearing a hockey helmet.

The service was horrible. We were "forgotten" about several times. Forgot to bring bread when requested, forgot to bring Parm cheese when requested, forgot to ask us if we would like to order dessert, forgot a dessert once we did finally order after asking if we could order, forgot another persons tea.(the waitress took our order without writing it down, clearly her memory is not sufficient. We also saw the only other table in our dining area had to get up from their table to go look for the waitress. Also, there were 4 different people tending to us, we actually didn't even know who our waitress was. So even with 4 people and an almost empty dining area, the service was absolutely atrocious and we will never be back. The food was good but very salty. Then the last straw was when they added an 18% gratuity to our bill (party of 8) without first letting us know! We requested to have it removed and instead chose to only give 13%, which quite frankly wasn't deserved. By staff knowing they are receiving an automatic 18% tip, they do not have to put in an effort to ensure patrons have had a satisfactory experience. The food was decent but your establishment needs to Do better.

We were shown to our table right away and given menus. Then no one came. The couple beside us who were seated after us were waited on. I had to go to the bar and ask one of the girls to send our server over as they had forgotten us. Not fun. Not sure what happened but she ended up being our server. Weird. Anyway, after that it was great. She was a young lady from England who had only been working there for 2 weeks. She was awesome! She made the dinner with my adult daughter great!! She saved the day because I was not very happy before that. On another note, the restaurant was very hot!! We opted to sit inside because it was still 30 degrees outside. Not sure it would have mattered as the air didn’t seem to be working inside. That being said, I would not recommend the restaurant to a friend.

This place has a cute outdoor patio and service was good. However the food was extremely mediocre. But their blueberry cheesecake was good! We tried their lunch summerlicious menu. Probably won’t come here again and wouldn’t recommend to others.

I'd been here before but this was the first time I took my family and they absolutely loved it! It was my parents' anniversary and they wanted to try something new so we went for Summerlicious and every course was delicious, the service was incredible, and we had an overall great time. I ended up misplacing my bracelet while I was there and Erica, an incredible Vagabondo employee, went over and beyond to find it and make sure I got it back. A huge thank you to her and all the Vagabondo staff!

We were there a while ago with friends and enjoyed the food, but the service was terrible. We decided to give it another try and again, so very disappointed in the service levels . The food was as we had experienced prior, very very good, but unfortunately, the service does not meet the food standard. Staff appeared to be very busy with take out orders and we even had to ask for our water glasses to be refilled several times.
