Oak and Vine, Auburn NY
My husband and I stayed at the Springside Inn for our Anniversary and ate at the Oak and Vine which was conveniently located right downstairs. We were not sure what to expect but we were amazingly pleased at the variety (I am picky) of the menu and the cost was reasonable. The food was OUTSTANDING! The service from Matt, our waiter was excellent and the cooks accommodated my every request. The atmosphere is pub feeling but with some old charm class. I love the fact that everyone makes you feel like family.This is a restaurant worth dining at. Come hungry, you get a lot of food for what you pay! Ask for Joselyn, she'll make sure you have everything you need! Thank you Oak and Vine for a memorable Anniversary!

Worth a visit
Nice spot off the lake. Beautifully maintained grounds. Good outdoor dining if the weather cooperates. Food was good and varied menu. Very conveniently located if going to MGR Playhouse for a show, Definitely worth a return visit.

Dinner with Friends
We arranged a dinner get together. Old friends meeting for dinner and conversation after the Merry Go Round
theater performance. We had a relaxing time, great meal selections, lots of laughter.

We stopped at the Oak&Vine for a light dinner before going to the theater. Cocktails and wine by glass were generous proportions and very good. Beet salad was good but not the best. Gumbo was tasty. Fried calamari was very good and large portion. Bread was okay, not great. Service was friendly and efficient. Ample parking lot and lovely front yard. We would definitely go back.

I love the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant and the variety of food on the menu. We live about 45 minutes away so it's a trek to come to the Oak & Vine but it is always worth the trip.

Had 4 people in our party. Everyone had something different. All was tasty. I highly recommend the cheese soufflé and the butcher steak

We had leased a place for a girls weekend just down the road - many of us walked to the restaurant.We actually chose the recipes due to reviews and the diversity of the menu as we had a group of ten from their 20s to 70s. Everyone was pleased with the quality of their dish, the wait staff was excellent as well.

One of our favorite spots! Sat on the veranda and enjoyed the beautiful grounds.
Crab cakes did not disappoint! Lump crab with a tiny bit of filler to bind. Carefully chopped onion and pepper and fresh herb to
season the cakes, delicately seared, served with a lovely aioli. Planked zucchini and yellow squash sautéed with scallops was very tender. One minor suggestion- the white rice(basmati) as an accompaniment was fine, but the plate needed a bit more texture - a brown rice (with almonds?) would have been preferable, in my opinion. Service was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Have dined there several times, and never disappointed. The grilled salmon and lemon herb risotto is delicious! Highly recommend!

Oak & Vine a winner!
Our party of 8 had a great experience. A diverse menu that was well executed from the Tuna Club and Gumbo to full entrees. Something for everyone from Ribeye & Osso Bucco specials to Roasted Vegetable Risotto for the Vegetarian in the group. Outstanding appetizers (Calamari and Carpaccio) and salads.
Our Waiter and the rest of the Staff were very helpful and responsive without being intrusive. We enjoyed some live music before and during dinner with a short walk to watch the Fireworks. We will definitely be back!

As we have mentioned previously,
As we have mentioned previously, while the food was quite tasty and the service was good, the noise level at The Oak and Vine made it difficult to converse comfortably. There must be some way to "soak up" the sound.

We did not know this place existed - It was a great find! It was easy to make reservations on-line. While there we enjoyed a comfortable atmosphere, friendly and efficient service, and excellent food! We went after going to see a play at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse. The Oak and Vine at Springside will be a part of our cultural experience every time we attend a play:)

We celebrated a milestone anniversary at the Springside Inn, eating dinner at the Oak and Vine. Meal was delicious although the green salad was simply too much as a starter. Filet was cooked perfectly and tender. Service left something to be desired as there was a wait for our dessert to come out and it appeared the waiter would have rather been anywhere but there.

my husband and I enjoyed our first time there very much; very nice waiter that was attentive and friendly.

Second time here - and equally
Second time here - and equally pleased as we were the frst time. Outstanding food - fabulous service - great location. The owners have tried to expand the menu a bit which is a good idea as the old menu was a tad limiting. The additions (which are not listed on the menu but come as specials) included two appetizers and two mains. Only comment - not sure you can improve on an excellent creme brule - the three pack of creme brule specials (mint chocolate and two other forgetable flavours) would be much better as a "real" traditional creme brule.

Our innkeeper at a local B&B where we were staying recommended Oak and Vine. We were not disappointed. We were able to book a reservation online, which was fantastic, and were waited on very quickly despite the fact that there were two rehearsal dinners and a wedding going on. The menu had something for everyone, and the food was fresh and delicious. Great job! We will be back again!

Delicious food and great service
Hi - my party of 8 dined with you on Sat, Sept 7th and we all enjoyed our meals. We had two children with us and they, along with the rest of us, were treated very well by your wait staff - very friendly and courteous. Will definitely be returning - especially loved the butternut squash soup!!

After driving back roads of Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York for 7 hours, the Oak and Vine was a delightfully quiet find in a superb setting. The food was delicious gastro-pub fare. My fillet was prepared to perfection! The service was excellent.
