Diner Reviews
  • "Great food! Service was also great! What was also a nice birthday surprise for me was a HUGE piece of Tiramisu that was enough for 2 on a decorated plate with berries, a side serving of Creme brûlée, and a chocolate scroll that said Happy Birthday! Very nice finishing touch! I might add that the wine by the glass was a generous pour! Very rare in nice restaurants these days! We will go back. There are many dishes I want to try."

  • "Party of three went to Vinny's for a quiet dinner with an old friend. We had dined here three-years ago and remembered the crab cakes. We tried them again as an appetizer and they were excellent. We ate early on a Friday evening, about 6 pm, and the noise level was fine for conversation. The main dishes were excellent, and we will return here again. Valet parking is available."

  • "We celebrated our 19th anniversary at Vinny's on Windward. It's conveniently located off Ga 400 for those of us who live in North Fulton & South Forsyth, and they consistently deliver the high level of quality you expect from fine dining restaurants in Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown. It's our "go-to" restaurant for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries and New Year's Eve. I've never had a bad meal there, and they provide the special touches that makes us want to return again and again. The veteran wait staff is friendly, helpful and professional. You cannot go wrong with Vinny's on Windward."

  • "I work in Alpharetta and always make this restaurant my first choice when taking clients out to dinner. The food is great, service is very good, ambiance is nice, and it's one of the few unique restaurants in the suburbs. It's important to take a client out to a place that is not a major chain. Everyone loves it here, and we can relax over good food and wine."

  • "We really enjoyed our food and the service. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. We did find Vinny's to be a bit noisy and conversation was difficult. I wouldn't consider it intimate. But, overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Vinny's to a friend."

  • "I love Vinny's. It's a great find for me, having moved from California. It has a great California feel to it. The steaks are incredible, as are the crabcakes. Wine list is great, but I'm a martini drinker and those are always excellent and generous. Wait staff is very attentive and seasoned, so I feel well taken care of there. It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for, in my opinion, so I don't mind spending extra when I know I'm getting exceptional food and service. Vinny's...one of my favorite places in the Atlanta area."

  • "I continue to have great success at Vinney's. The food is always delicious and the service is top notch. This is not your typical "pasta" italian place but instead a solid offering of great itlaian favorates.The crab cakes are exceptional and the rack of lamb was cooked to perfection. I suggest they dump the valet parking, though. There is no alternative. The parking lot lends itself to easy in and out. The valet service while prompt is just not needed."

  • "On Valentine's weekend, 4 of us dined at Vinny's, and as expected, it was quite crowded. Even with the packed conditions, the service was excellent. Our waitress, Milya (not sure if that is how she spells it), was friendly, attentive, and professional. The food was quite good. We ordered the crab cake (delicious as always) appetizer, along with one of the salads and soups. All came back with good reviews. The entrees included a couple of the crab cake dinners, a grouper over lobster ravioli special, and a pasta dish. All were outstanding. The only criticism was that the special fish dish was a little dry and could have used a touch more sauce, but overall the flavor was excellent. This restaurant continues to shine!"

  • "Second time here and it was just as pleasant as the first time. The wonderful aroma hits you before you even walk in! The noise level is a little loud but not so bad you can't hear your table mates. I ordered one of the pizzas this time and it was delicious. So much I had left overs for lunch the next day. Love Vinny's, we will be back often!"

  • "Not a good evening. Too loud. Were regular dinner going customers Singles event not adequately staffed to properly serve regular dinner going customers. Very disappointing all the way around. Realize restaurants need revenue generating events but they need to properly staff with servers/bar staff etc. 30 mins for a drink is unacceptable."

  • "The food was good but our table was not up to the occasion. We have been there several times and enjoyed the expeierence but to be there on Valentines Day, having made reservations two weeks in advanced was very disappointing. Our server was very attentive and took great care of us we just felt like we were in the kitchen."

  • "We dined at Vinny's one day after the normal Valentine's rush and it did not disappoint. The crab cakes over fettuccine with julienned vegetables was wonderful as always!! The wine selection too is always wonderful."

  • "My husband and I had a reservation at Vinny's for Valentines night. Although we had to wait about 10 minutes we had a very nice evening. It appeared that those who did not have a reservations had to wait for a very long time. Make sure that you call before arriving! The food was very good and very fresh. The desserts are to die for! On Valentines evening they were serving van Goghs Tiramasu. I'm not normally a Tiramasu fan but everyone must try theirs!! The Architecture is beautiful at Vinny's and the clientele offered lots of eye candy for everyone."

  • "We dined out at Vinny's with a couple of friends. We all had appetizers and main courses that were delicious. The carpaccio is outstanding, as was the scallop appetizer, and the salads. Two of us had the special butternut squash tortelloni topped by a crab cake drizzled with a sage brown butter sauce. It was superb. I would get it again if it was offered. Another diner had the gnocchi with veal meatballs ( a big hit) and lastly the risotto with scallops and shrimp. All got an exceptional rating. None of us opted for dessert this time around because we were so full. The service was friendly, attentive, and professional. We will definitely be back."

  • "EVERYTHING was lacking service-wise. As stipulated on my reservation, we were celebrating a double birthday. Server not welcoming (didn't mention a birthday or introduce herself). My receipt shows Joh E. Non-alcoholic drinks were not refilled once. 2 ppl at our table ordered the lamb chops. One had huge, thick portions while the other had small, thin chops. One guest mentioned it (she shrugged & walked away). Long after our entrees were finished, she came back around & asked abt dessert. I advised we were celebrating 2 birthdays. She blamed the hostess for not telling her & said she could make a birthday plate, but it would take 15 minutes. Hardly accommodating. I ordered desserts for table. Not comped. Left embarrassed, under appreciated."
