Always love our dining experience at Bar Vita
My Pasta was very good!
Unfortunately my husbands salad was brown and when the server came back to check on us (20 mins after food arrived) we showed her the lettuce was brown, she politely acknowledged she wouldn’t eat it either and apologized but ending up leaving the salad on our table (which we thought was weird). The owner then showed up at the table to look at our meal and proceeded to argue that he didn’t see what we were talking about. Up until this point I could’ve been compassionate knowing we were entering into the lockdown and the restaurant industry has been hit hard but to have an owner argue about the quality of food he was serving was very upsetting. It left a bad taste in our mouth (no pun intended). Sadly we will not likely return
We had a wonderful time. The scallops and veal were fantastic.
First off, Bar Vita is one of my favourite restaurants in Peterborough and it has been my place of choice whenever I want to share a special evening with someone.
Having said that, on our visit on Friday, December 11 there was about a 10 minute confusion and delay in getting us a table despite having made a reservation through open table and having confirmation of that reservation. And we were on time so that wasn’t a factor.
It’s nice that they have live music on Friday evenings but it was so loud that the server had to repeat the specials repeatedly and I hated to lean close because of us not having masks on while seated. It couldn’t have been comfortable for her either.
I got the veal and it was a bit on the dry side but otherwise tasty. The tomato sauce though was unremarkable. We also got the caprese salad which I felt was quite meagre for the $16 cost. It was served on a white plate and about 3/4 of the plate was visible because there were approximately 6 or 7 cherry tomatoes sliced in half, a few very small bits of soft cheese and some thin shreds of basil scattered like a garnish instead of full leaves of basil on which the tomatoes and cheese could sit. The flavour was good but I was quite disappointed with the portion size and presentation of the salad.
Overall it was not the best experience, and not what I had been expecting from Bar Vita 😕
Great experience! The staff were incredibly friendly, the atmosphere was great, the food was amazing. One of the best restaurants Peterborough has to offer.
The meal was delicious. The soup entree although tasty had no substance. This is the reason the food rating was lower.
The seafood Gorgonzola was delicious!
What a great place. Our server was such a delight. The food, the service , the ambience; everything was pretty spot on. Would highly recommend this place
One of the best dining experiences in Peterborough - great food, amazing service and lovely atmosphere!
The music was nice but when trying to talk a little loud
The food is always delicious, there is no other place around that compares. My favourite place to go to enjoy a nice night out.
Always a great dinner at Bar Vita. Food is excellent, drinks are good and service is second to none.
Our night was wonderful. The food was incredible- it surpassed our expectations 100%. We started with bruschetta and escargot and they were both great. The bruschetta was truly one of the best I’ve had, and the cheesy escargot was mouth watering. For our entrees we had sea bass and lobster ravioli, both being top tier. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. 10/10 for the chef.
Our server- unfortunately I cannot remember her name (tall blonde)- was very polite and engaging. She perfectly timed her check ins, and recommended great options. Her calm demeanour and interaction with patrons made It evident she will excel in all aspects of customer service, and future endeavours.
Hats off to your restaurant and staff. With out a doubt we will be back. Thank you kindly!
Always a great meal !
We were a group of 4. Our server was very sweet and attentive. We loved the bread, it was delicious. Normally we just get a warm bread roll. 3 of us had the Sea Bass which was cooked to perfection and served with a tasty pasta and 1 had the veal parm, which again was very nicely cooked and apparently very tasty. We've been to this restaurant several times and always been happy with the food. We have had to wait a long time for food on occasion, but not often. We have had the charcuterie board a lot and it is very very good, although the price seems to have gone up considerably. Bacon jam is amazing. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing atmosphere! Great drinks and appetizers! Loved our cute little table in the window :)
Would definitely recommend to anyone. Great food and service.
Friendly and efficient, food is very good, definitely recommend
One our favorite restaurants in Peterborough, highly recommend.
Everything was excellent the waitress was very attentive and we enjoyed our atmosphere and meal, it was a great night.
*The place was really noisy, there was a guy playing live and was nice but really loud so it was hard to talk.
*The food was oke, but nothing wow!
*The drink that the girl recommended us was awful and expensive (cocktail)
*The service was not that great, the server would be busy attending a big table and not taking care of us... She was talking long for everything...
*For the take away she brought us the 2 containers without bag and she gave the other clients bags for their containers.
* When we paid and gave her the tip she was not happy and she took my card no idea why to the back , then she returned and she was like asking was there anything wrong with the service??? And we did tip her but probably not the amount she was expecting. However, we felt kind of uncomfortable cuz she seemed upset.
Excellent food great service!!
Would highly recommend
Absolutely love the selection of dishes, amazing specials and fantastic service. The wine selection is very good and represents a good price range with affordable options and special occasion higher end wines as well. We find that the appetizers and salads are always just as great as the main dishes too. This is THE PLACE in Peterborough for pasta night!!
Very nice place. We went to see a friend play music out on the patio and what a beautiful night! Didn’t get any food, but have eaten there before and food is too notch! Little pricier then other places, but worth it. Will be back very soon!
Amazing service, amazing food. Owner went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying our night. Will be back!
We had a lovely evening. We dined indoors alone with the musicman. The food was great and the music was lovely.
The outdoor atmosphere on the sidewalk was not that great, but I understand this is all they can do right now. My husband's meal was good though the portion was a little small. My seafood gorgonzola was good but needed more sauce. Wine was excellent.
Excellent food. The veal Parmesan so good. The home made Caesar salad dressing is awesome. Great service.
Excellent service and food was excellent we have been three times in month span
It was awesome I have already highly recommended this to my friends .... the piano player Chris was awesome as well all around great evening with great food!!!
Food was awesome best bruschetta I have ever had! The environment was very classy and comfy. I will definitely be coming back.
Valentine’s Day dinner at Bar Vita was fantastic! What a gem in downtown Peterborough l. Highly recommend
Second time at Bar Vita. Food was amazing, sea bass was perfect. Had steak the visit before it was cooked perfectly.
The only issue that we had was that were we were sitting the restaurant was quite cool and should have had more heat on
Very nice - we had the specials and we’re all very pleased. Beet salad was great
Service was great and food very tasty
Highly recommend Bar Vita if your looking for excellent food, friendly staff and inviting atmosphere. All around great experience. We will be back!
