Diner Reviews
  • "they canceled my opentable reservation after I showed. Had to go through OT to get my points. If not for that, the service score would be higher."

  • "The food was great, service was absolutely outstanding. The servers even commented a few times...please relax and enjoy. We will take care of you! They escorted me to the ladies room..Not just a point around the corner. Food was fabulous and a terrific wine list. Happy hour is great at 50% which was nice for $20 glasses of wine. The space is lovely but it is loud when the band comes on."

  • "We went specifically to celebrate our anniversary. They are definitely known for the wine but it was not our forte. The food was good but again, not one for the marinades and spices. The service was great and they made every effort to please. The music was excellent - got a surprise when a customer got up to sing - she was great! Just wanted to go to an upscale restaurant to celebrate 23 years."

  • "I so enjoy eating out and I always try to match a restaurant with a special occasion. I had visited the Vines bar once with my boyfriend, Robert but had not eaten there. One of my co-workers and his wife visit often and told me how wonderful it was, So for a special dinner I made reservations. I was not disappointed. Everything was perfect...the food, the service, the friendliness and knowledge of the staff. The musical group even sang Happy Birthday to Robert. It was a most excellent evening and we plan on coming often. We even tried the octopus appetizer! Delicious. Thank you again, Jackie Brockington."

  • "We've been to some pretty name places in the last year and so we do know sophisticated service and dining. This was not it. Pricey for no reason. We had very poor service - after a pretentious mention that we had two wait staff. Adam, one of our servers, could have cared less for service. Very inattentive. Long waits and plates left for long periods. This was a birthday celebration (which we mentioned at the beginning of the meal). Did the offer any special attention? Not even a complimentary dessert. The wine was a selection we are very familair with and buy it at Total Wine for under $20. Vines had it at $60. What a rip off. Ok, the food was pretty good. We think this has become a tourist attraction. Locals stay away!"

  • "We enjoyed the food and entertainment. They made my husband's birthday very special. The only reason why I didn't give all five stars for the service is because the waiter forgot to tell us about the dinner specials. We started with two waiters, so maybe one thought the other had already done it. Overall, it was a great evening."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The ambiance, bar area, music and service was very enjoyable. The food was good as well but at $46 for Sea Bass it's a bit much. There are so many options in the area that to charge the prices they do, something should stand out as extraordinary. The food was good, and maybe even very good but I would not go back to this restaurant at that price range. The bench seat we were in was also broken. Given the dining area is very close to the bar/music area, be prepared to speak up if with a guest."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The atmosphere is great with a cool bar and nice jazz as a backdrop. The restaurant is more formal. We split a giant $100 steak and had asparagus as a side. Both tasted of liquid smoke though I suspect that they had just overdone the mesquite. Good wine list, attentive service. The price though is simply too high for the package. As in take your breath away. I'd stick with drinks at the bar."

  • "went on a weeknight for a special occasion -- table of 6 - 20 minutes to get drinks -- waiter was working another room that had been bought out for the evening so did not have the cycles to support my group -- food was good but will not go back because of poor service"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "The service was excellent and the food was good. However, it was not worth the final cost of almost $400 for 4 (2 adults and 2 kids). I have had better for much cheaper."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The service, the atmosphere, the food and of course the wine, it all was out standing!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "You might think of Vines as a good lounge and patio bar. However, the food is outstanding. Get a table (I prefer out of direct sight of the band), enjoy their very good service, and outstanding food."

  • "The restaurant was lovely and the music entertaining. Food is always subjective. My children each enjoyed their meal. Service was decent."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Have dined at Vines many times. This last experience was by far, the most disappointing. Soup came out cold, took until the third bowl for it to be warm, waiter forgot bread (even after it was asked for twice) until after the third soup was delivered. Steaks came out and had clearly been sitting under some type of warmer because of the soup issue. No managers were seen during dinner or came to check on the meal. Called and left a message asking for a call back and no response. Extremely disappointed with this experience."

  • "The service was top knotch. These are professional servers who complimented the excellent food, wine and live music. Not only did the servers present and remove our table effortlessly and unobtrusively but the entire diningroom was a very intimate experience because of the professional servers."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I wanted to try this place for at least 3 years, and we finally did when my husband was promoted at work as a celebration dinner. Both of our wait staff were wonderful, and everything was delicious. The indoor ambiance was perfect and elegant. A fantastic experience, and one I wouldn't mind repeating in the near future!"

  • "Slightly disappointed by the food. Mashed potatoes were salty. Thought the steak and chicken should have been better for the price. Bread, wine and atmosphere were great."

  • "Lovely for special night out. Not inexpensive but really very nice experience. We come here every time we are in the Orlando area. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "If you need a safe choice, that never disappoints, Vines is the place. Aside of the great food and service, their wine list is current and relevant, and the live jazz is a treat... An Orlando classic!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The ambience when arriving is perfect. I selected the restaurant originally for the live Jazz but I was pleasently surprised with the restaurant and menu. I dine in 5 star restaurants all over the country including NYC and I found the prices to be at least 20 - 30% higher than most others. The restaurant was emty.I would say this would be the reason. Disapointing as it will stop me from returning."

  • "Lively, fun a tasty. Our waiter was knowledgeable and guided us well on the wine selection. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I have been here many times. This restaurant brings high level quality dining to Orlando. The bacon strips, lamb chops and Rioja wines are my favorites. Service is extraordinary!"

  • "The wine list is very, very good... food prepared with care and menu creative... staff AMAZING!"

  • "Although the restaurant is known for steaks, I had the "chef composed" Chilean sea bass dish, which was terrific. The fish portion was much larger than one usually gets at other nice restaurants. I started with the grilled octopus, which comes not as a chunk or two of tentacle, but rather chopped into small pieces and immersed in a nice dressing with red onions and capers. I thought it slightly on the salty side, but it was still an outstanding preparation that I would gladly have again. My dining companion started with the escargot, for which she gave effusive praise (and she lives in Paris!!!) and as her main dish had the wild salmon, a large portion of fish that she said was delicious."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Could have done better I'm the steak department.... especially since they are revered to as a prime steakhouse. Longbone ribeye is partially a ripoff since the bone weighs heavily into the 30ozs the menu boasts. My steak had to be sent back because I ordered medium and it came out rare at best, then came back medium well; but I didn't make a fuss. Chilean Sea bass was awesome; good portion, cooked and seasoned perfectly. Lobster Mac and cheese was so-so, definitely not worth 24 bucks. Live music and moscato was good, therefore rounding out a decently overpriced dining experience. I would go back since the staff (vinny) was very nice and attentive, but would not have steak, or tuna appetizer. Would try other things."

  • "This is my absolute favorite restaurant in all of Central Florida! The food is outstanding, as well as having one of my very favorite things.....Foie Gras! It's my restaurant request for all special occasions. I also love to go listen to the live music in the bar area and have strips of bacon with my cocktail! Bravo, Vine's, you are spectacular!"

  • "We visited Orlando for a business convention, and decided to have a good dinner for our final evening. At the Vines Grille and Wine Bar not only we had good food, but our entire evening was very nice. Great service, wonderful staff, delicious food, and good music: one very fine experience! Thank you!"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Again Vines has managed to keep the vibe, the food and the service top shelf. Thank you for a great dinner...wish you were in Miami!"

  • "We went to Vines for a business dinner last week and the food was very good. However, the jazz music was so loud it was hard to hear any conversation at the table. Also, the service was not what I would expect a fine dining establishment. The hostess did not even acknowledge me, even though I stood in front of her for 2 minutes. Once we were seated it was very hard to get our waiter's attention. He was always rushing away from our table, which kept us from ordering more wine and desserts. It's a good place if you like the noise and bustle and live music, but for great service and the ability to hear your dining companions try someplace else."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The dining experience at Vines is truly special. Service is just as you would like, there when needed, always attentive, but never overbearing. The dishes were fabulous and wonderful for sharing. And there is something for everyone on the wine list with a helpful staff that recommends what will compliment your taste and preference. I look forward to my next visit."

  • "Wonderful service - ask for Johnny. I don't drink wine but they have a massive wine list. They rotate their menus occasionally but every item is excellent. Their Beef Carpaccio is tender and always prepared just right. I typically order a steak and it's always a tough decision but I've never been disappointed. The sides are flavorful and if they have the pork belly gnocci be sure to have it, wonderful! The hostesses are never friendly and never acknowledge a return guest or at least they don't like me. Also, one of my favorite servers, Alex, was let go. Apparently one of the owner's friends didn't like him and BAM fired the next day. Really sad, he was always wonderful to us. I think that was a mistake. But Go. Enjoy. "

  • "This place was simply great. I went for a special birthday for a party of two around 6pm on a saturday. It started to get jumping a little later and when the live jazz band lights up around 7pm that's when you REALLY felt the vibe. The servers were fantastic it's fine dining but they didn't take themselves too seriously and were personable & cracking jokes. The sea bass just melted in my mouth sooooo delicious! My girl had the Wagyu steak and said it was "the best steak ever point blank period full stop" She said she was going to make a pilgrimage to the burial site of the cow to thank it personally lol. The only thing negative I would say is to allow yourself a little extra time if you have after plans things can run a little long."

  • "My wife & I dined there over the weekend. An excellent wine list and great service. The bar adjoins the restaurant and therefore the restaurant is loud and busy. Much foot traffic from a large number of waiters means that this is not the place for a romantic dinner. It's a busy place with really good food, but bustling and noisy too The steaks were excellent but should have been at over $50.00 a plate. Wait staff is very attentive - almost too much so, it was rushed at the end. All in all, we'll go back, but there are other more romantic venues in the area."
