We went here for anniversary and had a great time. The food, wine and beer were great. We had appetizers (perigees and kielbasa), main meal and desserts. The service was wonderful too. Very friendly, helpful and attentive. Only negative was the two seat tables. These were tightly packed along a bench. It was so close that we felt we were eating with the other couples and part of their conversations. It was very awkward. More

Went here with a group of seven for a family birthday party. The menu provided enough options for both our sushi lovers and those who don't care for it. We ordered several different rolls for our group and they all came on one platter so we could try different tastes, which ranged from vegetarian to crunchy to spicy and more. We will say that one of the spicy ones was very spicy dpending on which piece of the roll you happened to choose, so choose wisely. The staff was friendly enough (especially Cece!) and the atmosphere was great. More

First time and not the last. My only issue was the location we were seated. it was in the back next to the kitchen door . Had a lot of traffic flowing right next to us. Worse than that was we were in the path of the air coming straight in from the patio (door was open)... this is where people were smoking. It stunk. I know this is a legitimate place to sit - however we had reservations - so i expect we should have received a better location (yes - there were several available). that said - the food was excellent. i will go back but i will make sure to request a different location.

We love Vinnie’s. My sister-in-law lived in Raleigh 30 years ago & when she visits she must go to Vinnie’s. It is an institution & although it has updated, it still has great food & service. It can be pricy but it is worth it. More

Discussions about barbecue in North Carolina usually end in fistfights. If you ask someone from the western part of the state, smoked pork shoulder is the way to go. Head east, and nothing will do but to slow cook the whole hog. Either way, chopped pork, barbecue sauce, a ladle of coleslaw and a dash of Texas Pete make an iconic sandwich. The squishier the bun is, the better. Even if your tastes run to fried chicken, sautéed mountain trout or pimiento cheese melted over fried green tomatoes, you won’t go hungry in Raleigh. Have you ever had boiled peanuts? Reserve your opinion until you’ve tasted this roadside-stand treat. Local chefs are creating delicious new dishes around this humble ingredient.
