I had some Singaporean friends in town who wanted a good steak, Vlado's was recommended and they loved it. They have a fixed menu and everything was very good. My friends were happy and we all enjoyed the evening

My first experience with Vlado's goes back 30 years, when you were treated to a juicy flavoursome sausage, amazing share platter of several different meats, small hamburger patties and sweetbreads, a delicious steak cooked to perfection, and a light, thin crepe with strawberries, cream and ice cream. Just way too much meat! Now the sausage is dry and bland, the... More

This is a great restaurant if you like meat. Fantastic steaks great atmosphere, and experience, especially so when the old man was still cooking. Don't expect to have much of a choice all meat and a little bit of salad.

It is a set menu and I had heard rave reviews from other family who had been there so I had high expectations. Appetizer was a single dry sausage, entree was a shared mixed meat plate which was nothing special, main was a steak, your choice of cut, cooked to your liking. It was indeed cooked perfectly, though to my... More

Very old fashioned restaurant. Service was excellent. Steaks cooked to perfection, It is a set menu and the food served to accompany steaks could use a little tweaking,

Dinner with the boys, very simple menu and set up but good, my porterhouse was very very nice. It's not fine dining but it is good steak.

Older style hearty cooking, but can be an interesting experience for you if you don't mind tying different types of cuisines. Wouldn't suggest for vegetarians - yes, there is some fish on the menu, but still a vegetarian can be deeply offended. Lol

Great service. Charming ambience, love the interior. Steak cooked to perfection. Simple and flavoursome meal. The wagyu was the ultimate. The dessert was great. Strawberries and crepes. Overall a pleasant experience.

A large group of us went here as we have heard about it for some time. One of the couples are regulars, I now know why. Not a very fancy looking place, no windows and you sit very close to all the tables. Wine 👍 sausage cones out, then a plate of mixed meat i.e. burger patty, liver and a... More

If you like meat, this will serve you well. Just let them decide what you will have and sit back and enjoy. The grill will sizzle and so will your taste buds.
