A word from Vine & Fig Tree Bistro
Vine & Fig Tree, a truly comfortable, warm and inviting BYO Bistro is now serving a relaxed all-day breakfast and mid-day lunch menu. Casual bistro dinners with simple desserts are available Thursday through Sunday evenings. Seasonal outdoor dining is available on our patio. Chef Drew Abbate draws his inspiration for Vine & Fig Tree from the informal celebrations that took place in his grandfather’s backyard filled with long tables of delicious food, trees strung with lights, homemade wine, and the laughter of family and friends.

  • I will truly miss the Vine and Fig!

    What a loss for Downtown Doylestown when this restaurant closes next week! My friends and I have had a wonderful breakfast get together place, both comfortable and with delicious food! The "Healthy" breakfast is my constant favorite. All but twice the weather cooperated and we got to eat outside - the best. It was the most pleasant place to eat with great food and a delightful staff. We will truly miss Drew and his restaurant!

    Vine and Fig Bistro is a delicious spot for breakfast/brunch in Doylestown. If you're going on a weekend, make a reservation. Everyone there is very nice, and if I'm in the area during breakfast, it's their pancakes (try the pumpkin with cinnamon vanilla butter) that I crave.

    I had a lovely lunch with a friend at the Vine and Fig Tree Bistro. I had the goat cheese sandwich and loved it. The wait staff is very friendly and the hostess charming as well. The room is very cozy and they have a good selection of unique items on their menu. I just moved here, so I will frequent this restaurant and bring a bottle of wine next time too.

    This BYOB is always good. My husband and I went here about 6-months ago and had a fantastic experience. The menu is fresh and always new. We picked it as a couples night out spot and had another great experience. Prices are reasonable and on Saturday nights they have live entertainment.

  • Outside dining in Doylestown

    Dined on 8/19/2013
    I don't usually dine outside, but it was a great choice at this restaurant. I was seated by the hostess without being given a menu and was forgotten for 5 minutes or so before I signalled to the waitress. She apologised for the hostess. I was a lttle disappointed that what was on line (charcuterie plate and two types of soup) was not on the menu. In fact, no soup was available. I did have a good omlette with lamb slices and tzatziki sauce. Lunch has some limited choices at good pices.

    We spent an enjoyable summer evening dining outside in their courtyard with live guitar music with volume perfect for dinner conversation. The menu selections were creative, and the food was very good. BYO is a plus.

    My girlfriend and I have been to Vine & Fig several times and the food is always outstanding. Last time we were able to sit outside and it definitely upped the ambience as well. It's nestled in the middle of town but the noise is not bad and you definitely get a European feel in the back yard with the lights.

    Best resturant in doyelstown PA. Everything is freshly prepared with incredible flavor combinations. My favorite is the fired goat cheese, with honey, and figs. Its an amazing and creative combination. Everything that comes out of the kitchen you can tell is fresh and the chef is passionate about the food he is presenting which makes this the ideal place to be adventurous and try new things. I have been here twice and tried Rabbit and Cornish hen for the first time. Both were incredible. We have also tried the gnocchi which was a high-end Italian restaurant quality. For my $ its the best gnocchi in d-town hands down. Overall this place provides great food and reasonable prices. The staff is always friendly and attentive as well.

    Dined on 6/21/2013
    We were surprised this was BYOB. Luckily there is a wine store 3 blocks away. They did not have our reservation. Also told no more outside seating even though we could see empty tables outside. Then we waited and waited for service and could not even get a corkscrew to open our wine. Just as we were getting up to leave the hostess came over told us there was seating that opened up outside and offering to open the wine. We then settled in to a very interesting twist on bistro food. Service was still minimal (seemed like waitress was overwhelmed). Also some dishes you don't see elsewhere. So maybe it was just a rough start.

    We dined outside on the patio, which was tucked behind the building instead of sitting right on the street, so it was very quiet and private. The wait staff are very pleasant and helpful. We were brought a wine bucket to chill the wine brought with us. The food was delicious and was moderately priced. Overall it was a wonderful dining experience that I intend to repeat.

    We sat outside on the terrace on a perfectly delightful evening. We arrived early so service was attentive, food attractively presented and quite delicious. Interesting menu that combines some tradtional dishes with the chef's own inventive twist. It was easy to forget that we were right in the center of town - rather European. A little gem. Would definitely go again.

    Dined on 5/27/2013
    The reservation was made for 4 people. One person of the four arrived on time but was not seated. When I arrived, the front desk seating person told me no one had arrived yet. We waited 30 minutes for a table outside that was already free for seating while other patrons, who did not have reservations, were seated immediately. I would probably not go there again because of the service/ or lack there of. The food was good but pricey. A grill cheese for $7.00, and the coffee was luke warm. When we asked for a decaf cappuchino, we were told they did not have any decaf coffee. The name of the restaurant is cute but the ambiance is mediocre at best. In my opinion, this is not a good review.

    I am usually very positive when I do a review but this was not a great experience. The service was marginal, the food varied from Ok to great, it was cramped and noisy, and very expensive for what you got. With all the great places in this area we will not be returning.

    I loved the food. I will go back again. I went during restaurant week and was disappointed by the choice of only one thing for that deal. But this was Doylestown's 1st restaurant week so maybe next year will have better offerings. I will, however, go back because the quality and taste of the menu item I had was top notch.

    Four for dinner, about half the dishes were excellent and the rest were less than excellent. I started with a salad that was fresh and perfectly dressed. It was excellent. And then I got one of the specials for an entree. It was billed as pork loin, but it was really just a tough, boneless pork chop with a tasteless gravy on it. It was also on top of "squash" that was more like watered down baby food (required a spoon to eat). My partner had a special appetizer of roasted eggplant and tahini which he said was bitter and not very good. His entree of monk fish was fresh and excellent. Only one server for quite a few tables...one rather large party included. She was clearly stretched too far. Live music was way too loud.

They had a personal emergency and called us personally to apologize and cancel our reservation and offered to secure a reservation in a nearby restaurant. Personal service like this is rarely found these daces. We will certainly reschedule our reservation. Charming

    Dined on 1/11/2013
    Had dinner there on a Fri. evening and they had live music. In my opinion it is a small place to have live music as it was hard to hear our conversation. Most of us ordered an eggplant appetizer and I'm not sure if it was supposed to be this way but the outside skin on all of ours was burnt. The burnt skin took away from whatever he was trying to do with the rest of it. My fish was very good as my main course. My husband ordered the salmon and it was such a small portion, it looked almost like it could have been an appetizer....and then add to it they forgot to bring him his salad. We split two desserts that were very good. Could have been an off night, might give it one more chance.

    Was a great dinner on a Thursday night. Started with a delicious grilled eggplant topped with tahini and pomegranate seeds. Then came the halibut which was cooked perfectly. Since we were running to the movies, we did not have time for dessert. It is a bit noisy with large parties (10 women having a wine tasting - looked like fun) but the server was quite considerate asking them to lower their volume. Will return to this restaurant.

    Of all my dining experiences... this was the worst. We decided to try this restaurant after looking at the web site where brunch is listed on Sundays. Upon arrival we waited 20 minutes to be seated. The table was sticky, covered with salt and the menus tattered. Turns out their definition of brunch is just a time, not a meal. The server looked confused when I asked for a brunch menu, not the breakfast menu at 11 AM. They DO NOT offer brunch. The food was mediocre at best. The service was poor. I would not recommend this place when there are so many better choices in the area.
