  • "The Grapevine accommodated my large group of 15 for a birthday dinner. We had no issues with service and we're taken care of from the moment we got there. We did not all arrive at once, and they had no issues with our slower arrivals. We were likely the folks there that made the noise level go up to Moderate as we were having such a great time!"

  • "My friends and I showed up in what we considered to be "under-dressed" clothes, as we did not realize how nice of a place it was! But after we were reassured that it was alright, we ended up having an awesome experience and really loved the food! I will definitely be coming back, next time dressed a little nicer... :) A+!"

  • "We always enjoy dining at the Grapevine. It is great for a business lunch, dining as a couple or a family gathering. A great local alternative the the big chain restaurants. The service is awesome and you can tell they really appreciate your business. You will not be disappointed."

  • "Loved the decor and friendly atmosphere. Food was wonderful and varied in items. Our party of 8 ordered all different items and all raved about the taste and quality. Will return again."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This is our "go to", "feel good" choice of restaurants when we want to enjoy a great, low-key meal. The atmosphere is not chic or trendy, but warm and friendly. The food is delicious and the servers are always attentive. Get the sampler platter (appetizer) to enjoy a little taste of several Greek dishes. We highly recommend The Grapvine to anyone looking for good place to go to feel welcome and enjoy a tasty meal. It's always nice to support local, family-run businesses!"

  • "We had a great dining experience last Friday night! Our waiter Ben was fantastic! He was there whenever we needed him and gave us plenty of time to order since we were enjoying a reunion with our cousin who we hadn't seen in more than 30 years. The Manager was also very nice and checked on us several times. Our italian and greek dishes were very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion."

  • "We had a business dinner here and enjoyed a very pleasant evening. The service was attentive but a little slow. The food was very good and at a very reasonable price. he portions are large and 3 of us took portions home. If you're a couple looking to save money, you could easily split a meal and be satisfied. They have a good if not extensive wine selection."

  • "The Grapevine is quiet, yet great for groups. It's a romantic place for an anniversary dinner, and yet friendly enough for an afternoon with BFFs. Which is better: The food or the service? Both are exceptional. And whether it's Italian or Greek food you want, you'll get the best at the Grapevine, my new favorite restaurant."

  • "The restaurant did not have my Open Table reservation on file. They said they had not received it from Open Table. They said it was the 2nd one that night with the same issue. They kindly got a table set up for us (9) quickly and we were seated almost immediately. I recommend calling to confirm the reservation if made online."

  • "As a non-Greek fan this is the perfect place for me because my husband can indulge his Greek craving while I get to enjoy a plate of pasta. They also have one of the best dipping sauces for their bread."
    Dined on 7/27/2013
  • "Very pedestrian Italian/Greek food. Not sure what the other reviewers ate, but mine was fair at best. The chicken parmigiana was like a frozen chicken breast warmed, smothered with a bottle of Ragu and covered with cheese and placed in a warming oven. The saganaki had chunks of cheese in it. Not good."

  • "Grapevine has been a family favorite for 10+ years. The food is delicious and the service is warm and personable! The restaurant will always do its best to squeeze you in, no matter the time, and once you're a regular you're treated like royalty! This has been a favorite spot for dinner and for special events (they have a huge room for private events and will tailor a menu specific to your needs)!"
