We soon realized the table was wobbly when we started belting out with laughter. That didn’t slow us down. The food was absolutely divine! I love that Bank+Vine offers small plates, allowing the guest to try an array of different cuisines. 10/10 recommend!

I was a bit disappointed with the high top seating and will not do this again - the table was too small and the chairs were extremely uncomfortable. I also thing the background music is too loud for casual conversation. Otherwise, an excellent experience.

                                                                We went to Bank+Vine specifically for their Italian takeover, e cosí. This dinner was, hands down, the best start to finish meal I've ever had. The cocktails were unique spins on classics and I was not disappointed in my limoncello gin collins. Dinner really knocked our socks off. The components of each dish were masterfully chosen to compliment one another and the flavors were out of this world. NEPA is lucky to have Chef Chad Gelso in our area. His talent is remarkable. I can't wait to taste what he comes up with next! We chose bomboloni for dessert and you could tell it was made from scratch and with utmost attention to detail. I'll be raving about this dinner for years!
