Went for Mother's Day dinner, and had a great time. Good place for gourmands and the pickiest eaters, aka my little brother and sister. A quaint little bistro with some delicious eats really. Patio looked nice but we didn't dress for it today, so hopefully we can go back when the weather is a bit warmer.

Wonderful food, everything we ordered was delicious! Loved the spaetzle and smoked carrots to share, and particularly liked the pork schnitzel and chicken appetizers. And the donuts for dessert were a perfect ending! Service was impeccable all around. Only negative was it was a bit loud, music was at a high level so it was a bit hard to hear the conversation at times.

Food and service from the chef herself was excellent. The place is cozy. It's BYOB and only prix fixe, they don't have an actual menu to chose from but you can tell them your preferences, allergies, etc.

Everything about this experience was superb! We had the 10 course tasting and two of us had the wine pairings ( a sommelier from Mexico was in attendance.) The food was all very fresh and uniquely presented Korean fusion. The wine was also unique and unlike the usual red and white (there was an orange colored rose that tasted of peaches and was delicious!

We happened to be in the city looking at condos and wanted to go to lunch so I opened up Open Table for the closest restaurants. The posting, pictures and reviews made it look very interesting and inviting. It was easy valet parking right on Fullerton Beach. The interior gave us an awesome view of the frozen lake . Mary our waitress went through the brunch menu with us and gave us several suggestions which were spot on. We started off with the selections of breads with honey butter (scrumptious) and doughnut holes (also very tasty). Then we moved on to the sausage and egg on ciabatta, orange churro French toast and breakfast nachos. Go for the sausage breakfast and the French toast. Both were fabulous! A totally enjoyable Sunday afternoon.

Vajra is an excellent restaurant. Amid COVID-19 concerns, each party was seated far from anyone else. Everything was handled professionally and hygienically. Servings are large and we took enough to have another meal. I highly recommend!
