    My first time to dine st The Vines. The food was delicious, my friend had the Halibut and was very pleased with her selection. I had the short ribs, which they call Stroganoff, but it was not the traditional dish prepared in a sour cream, wine and beef gravy along with noodles. This had a large amount of beef—tender and not too fatty, large delicious noodles and a variety of vegetables all served in a bowl. It wasn’t what I was expecting but it was wonderful. I would highly recommend the Beef Stroganoff and the Vines. The hostess was welcoming and very friendly. Our waiter was well informed about the entrees, happy to make suggestions, when asked, but not pushy. All in all it was a great experience.

    The Belgian fries are always perfect! Great , friendly service. The bread is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It’s amazing when dipped in the garlic butter sauce served with the escargots. The beef bourguignon is consistently good. Love how it’s served piping hot in a Le Creuset pot. Small but good happy hour selection.

    Service was fantastic. Our waiter Luca was on it. Amazing waiter. Great food and very much authentic. We had the swordfish, Beriia , ceviche and shrimp. However, we were seated outside when I was thinking we were going to be inside and no one told us that. I saw the photos online and loved the ambiance So we did not get the feel of the ambience which I was very much looking forward to for our special occasion. So next time, I’ll make sure to ask!
