Great server, Noelle. Nice atomsphere. Food was cold, lacked flavor, gotten a molten lava cake that was cold and hard. Nice wine list but did not have the wines. This was a price fixed menu for NYE and would have expected the kitchen to be able to focus on a few great items vice the entire menu. Will not go back or recommend.
Had reservations. Restaurant fairly empty at the time and we were set right behind the hostess stand. Behind us was where the wait staff gets silverware. Noisy horrible placing. You sit at a couch and giant chair pulled back from the table. The seating sinks so much that even at 6'4", the table came to my chest! Shovel level. Easy to scoop your dinner right straight into your mouth, but not very romantic. The food was good and the waiter was pretty scarce. My wife ordered a second glass of wine with a half glass left. They brought the refill with the check. Pretty classy, huh? Menu very limited. Something smelled great in the parking garage, but we came to the conclusion it wasn't Varia. Being sat at a regular table would have greatly improved the experience. Where we were was more like seating where you would wait to be seated.
Great ambience for a nice date night! Def wanna make sure you ask to see Benji as your server. He was super attentive and genuinely made you feel he was only there to make sure your dining experience was well worth it. Solid great feel at the end of the evening with him even if it's just for a night cap
We have been going here every Saturday since well before the pandemic. We have been elated since they reopened! The food is the best in this area (from a New York City Italian), the ambiance is among the nicest and most elegant (yet casual and comfortable), and the service remains second to none! Tables are 6'-apart, wait staff wear gloves and masks, and they validate garage parking! One of the few places in the area I can be comfortable in a suit and tie or in jeans.
My wife and I had an excellent dining experience at Varia. I say dining experience because it was more than a nice restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. It had a romantic ambience especially since we were seated near the pianist.
