Fire and Vine is the restaurant
Fire and Vine is the restaurant we go to most often so my review might be skewed a bit. The Quail was wonderful, Chad, the waiter, was engaging as well as patient, but for a restaurant that is known for it's wine cellar, I had to go through several white wine samples before I found one that I enjoyed, which could be understandable but I was looking for a wine by the glass, how hard is it to have a good Sauvignon Blanc by the glass?

Wonderful memorable meal
The staff was very friendly and Brad, our Server, was fabulous. Very accomodating when an extra person showed up. The food was outstanding. The steaks were perfect and the quail..out of this world. The gnochi is a must. The only disappointment was the antipasta bar was gone. Overall a wonderful memorable dinner!

The food and the service were
The food and the service were excellent. We chose Fire & Vine because they sent us the announcement that there were opening early for Easter Sunday. We expected that they would be running some brunch items, but that was not the case. We had a great visit and will return.

We found this restaurant through
We found this restaurant through open table and it was a good find. The skewers and flatbread are quite good. Although our food was good and the ambiance is nice (wonderful smoky smell throughout) our server wasn't very friendly or efficient.

Expensive but worth it
We both ordered chimichurri steak, but I ordered medium well and he ordered medium rare. Both came out perfectly. Wine was good, bread was fresh, server (Sarah) knew her stuff. We will be back.

We had a large group at Fire and Vine for a celebratory dinner. The food was outstanding, even for such a large group, and the service was remarkably efficient. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a lovely and delicious dinner for any special occasion.

Great Pick When Traveling
We used Open Table to find a place while we where down for the weekend. Reviews matched everything correctly. Very good selection. I liked the wine and beer flights. Great choice to sample various choices. Had very good choices for Kids. My wife loved her see scallops. I had a very good steak dinner. The kids loved the pizza.
The staff was really friendly.

I was looking for a nice place to take my wife to that was out of the norm from our usual outings. I researched restaurants on the internet and came across Fire and Vine. I had never heard of them before but the wood grill idea caught my attention so I decided to give it a try. The restaurant was very nicely decorated and gave off somewhat of a romantic feel. The food was great and allowed enough time between courses to relax and enjoy each others company. Not once did we ever feel rushed and the waiter was very helpful and informative but not intrusive at all. The only negative thing I noticed was when my wife ordered an alcoholic drink. It came out in a glass that was completely out of place in a restaurant this nice. No big deal, though.

Had the lamb which is slow cooked through a special low-heat process, then braised over the wood grill just prior to serving. Thoroughly enjoyed every bite, and it looked and smelled so good to my wife (who doesn't like lamb), that she had to sneak a taste--she was very impressed!!

Wonderful Find In Va Beach
We were in Va Beach on vacation and I stumbled upon this restaurant via open table. It is always quite hard finding a good place for a fun night out while on vacation. I cannot tell you how happy my wife and I were that we booked our reservation here. The food was amazing. We ordered several appetizers and meat skewers to start. I must say that the gnocchi is one of the best dishes I have ever had. I could have literally ordered it as my meal. The meat skewers were delicious as well. We shared the truffled macaroni and cheese and crab cakes. We had the s'mores bread pudding for dessert and it was decadent. All of this with great wine and service made a wonderful night for us on our vacation. I cannot give this visit enough stars.

The food was fine. However
The food was fine. However the limited menu does have some interesting choices.the wine book s hard to be selective. The overall experience was good. I think brunch or lunch woyld be a better time to go.

We tried the flatbread and it was delicious. The salmon was great and so were the short ribs. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list.

Fun with friends
Fire & Vine is a solid choice when taking friends out for dinner. They have a nice selection of proteins and the fire grill adds a great flavor to the food. We had 2 gluten free folks at our table and 2 on diets and everyone was able to find something on the menu to their liking. We had a great bottle of wine - everything was great. Our server was very nice. Overall a very good experience - thank you!

We were unfamiliar with the Virginia Beach area restaurants and chose this one based on print advertising and Google reviews and were so pleased with everything about the restaurant. The wine list was extensive and our server was happy to offer us tastes of several wines before we chose one. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and didn't hesitate to make recommendations with a full explanation of the dish. I have had many substandard shrimp and grits dishes to the point where I never order them but the shrimp and grits at this restaurant are OUTSTANDING! Wish I were going back to Virginia Beach soon so I could eat at this restaurant again. If you are in the area, don't miss it!

We had not been to Fire & Vine in about 1 1/2 years. When I heard they had done away with the wonderful chef's table I was disappointed; however, we were not disappointed in our dining experience. Our servers, Evan and Megan, were attentive and friendly without "over doing it". The food was delicious. We split the brie app and the beet and bleu cheese salad. Both were great. I had the beef tenderloin skewer and brussels /bacon side dish. The brussels were great albeit a little on the salty side. My husband had a wonderful steak. Portions were plentiful and the food perfectly prepared. We won't wait so long next time to return. Delightful evening.

Food and service was excellent
Experience was on a Monday evening out of season so staff was not extended. Food was very good, service was just right with things taken care of but not overly interrupted. My wife and both had the filet which were cooked to perfection. Did not investigate extensively but wine and beer selection were good and selected from staff recommendations. Would visit again or recommend.

We were visiting in VA Beach and looking for a nice restaurant for our final night there. We saw the Fire and Vine ad in a brochure and checked reviews online. The reviews were accurate. A place worth visiting. We had a fine meal there and a most accomodating staff. We asked about the size of the portions and our waitress said the salads were entree size and they would gladly split a salad for us to share, which we did. Our waitress also told us the wine list has only "new world" wines, which meant no European wines. The list was had a lot of interesting selections and a wide range of prices so you can find a nice wine at a nice price. An enjoyable evening.

We had such a great time and look foredeck to going back soon!

Worth the stop
The location isn't that great since the restaurant is located in a strip mall, but the food and service will make the poor view worth the stop. The waitress was knowledgeable, prompt, and pleasant. She made great suggestions. The wine list is very good and the food was wonderfully prepared. The interior of the facility is very nice, but when you look at the window you see a parking lot. If this restaurant was located on the water it would be perfect in every aspect. None the less, I would recommend it highly to anyone who is a foodie like myself.

I dine at Fire & Vine on a regular basis, and have for a number of years. I enjoy the food very much, the service is always very good and the staff in general is extremely accommodating and friendly. I made reservations with a special request for a server, thinking this would assure us of a decent table, even if the requested server was not available. We arrived to find our table had been given away (although we arrived exactly on time) and were seated at probably the worst table in the place. Overall, not the experience I was looking for but the food was excellent, as usual, and the service very good as well. The short ribs are amazing and never disappoint. I'll try again in a couple of weeks.

Solid food, great service
This was my first visit to Fire and Vine, though I went with friends who raved about the place. That always makes me nervous, as other peoples' favorite places can sometimes seem overrated to me. Not so here.
The food was all expertly prepared and plated beautifully. Not much here for vegetarians on the face of it, but I didn't ask. The pork chop was absolutely the best one I have tasted. All of the steaks were done just as they were ordered; sides were creative and delicious. Too bad they weren't in a better location (so many views to be had in Virginia Beach, but not from F&V), but I suppose if they relocated they'd have to add $ to the prices. That would be a shame, as the dinner was reasonably priced for how well it was executed.

First Time Dinning
This was my first visit to Fire and Vine. The restaurant was chosen by my girlfriend for her birthday. Everything about Fire and Vine was amazing, from the food to the service, everything exceeded our expectations. We will defiantly rerun to Fire and Vine and recommend to friends.
