Lamb curry is excellent. Not gamey at all. Other dishes are just as good. Worth a visit or ten.

We love this little place! If you decide to try it, ask for Namita’s recommendation for what to try! We love having her help us try new things. The bacon wrapped dates and salmon puffs are favorites for appetizers!

Nice little quaint spot attached to a shopping center. My wife and I were immediately greeted and sat, part our reservation. Menu is very diverse with a lot of tasty offerings too, but can be pricey for a glass of wine and for some food items. Wednesday is their 3 dollar wine glass night, go then.

We ordered the beef guyira, a burger, the braised short rib, and bread pudding. Everything was delicious and and seasoned very well. Lots of flavor and cooked just right.

Highly recommended.

Thank goodness we were thinking “low key” for this Anniversary dinner because it was that. The menu is beautiful to read, not so much to taste. I’m not sure if it’s a quality of ingredient thing or chef execution but it was mediocre at best. I like the venue but it was not an “anniversary” night out. I was hoping for BIG flavor but left disappointed. They definitely have potential. Good luck to Off The Vine in their future endeavors.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. Manish makes us feel welcome and always helps us select interesting, and excellent, wines. Namita’s food is fantastic, and there’s always something new to try. A neighborhood gem.

That was our first visit (4 people) to Off the Vine. We especially went for the live music performed by a friend of mine. The staff were all very friendly and made us feel special and welcomed. The variety of food was so delicious and they had my favorite wine!!! We are all looking forward to our next visit ...very soon!

The service was very good. The wine menu is decent, but was not as large as expected. The food was very good, with nice options for those with dietary restrictions, but just missed being great.

It was a Monday night so expected some menu shortages but there was very little they had to offer. the owner was not on site and I think the cook was gone also. I had the seafood pasta in a white sauce and basically had three pieces of calamari with cream poured over the top and no spices. When we asked for parmesan cheese to try and get some flavor the server gave us something that was white and flaky but very sweet. we asked what it was and were today "I don't know" . my dinner partner ordered a stuffed bell pepper and received an uncooked whole bell pepper with luke warm meat and some sort of cheese. again no spice or flavor and who served a stuffed bell pepper in a raw pepper. The server made no attempt to apologize or adjust the bill for the horrible food. what a shame as it looked like a great place and had good reviews.

Very quiet neighborhood place in a strip mall. Very friendly and attentive owners. We had found it listed as "fit for foodies", and while the food was good, I wouldn't quite put it at that level. Nice time.

There was a wine/dinner tasting and if you weren't part of that, then you were definitely treated like second class. The other parties were seated after us and received water, salads etc. before we got our menus. We won't be going back!

The food is perhaps some of the very best I have ever experienced. The prices are a bit on the high side but the cuisine and wine and craft beers are delightful. It is truly a gem in the suburbs.

The place is hidden in the back corner of a strip shopping center but is very well done with a charming owner and good food and service at a reasonable price.

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant because it was new and advertised delicious farm to table healthy fresh food. Noting could be further from the truth. First of all, we were the only ones there, which in retrospect should have been an obvious sign to us. The mushrooms were burned, the cauliflower was microwaved to the point where the meal was literally too hot to eat and stuck to the side of the serving bowl. The caprese skewers we too small to serve in most restaurants. The hamburger was dry and tough. The side order of sweet potato chips arrived after the meal. The "healthy" turkey wrap was actually processed turkey slices, the kind you would find in a package at a supermarket (which I suspect is exactly where it came from). Despite sending food back because it was clearly overcooked or in the case of the turkey, processed meat, we were charged full price for everything ordered (despite not being able to even eat it). The was easily one of the worse meals I have ever had in a restaurant.
