    I hate writing negative reviews but as a chef myself I just have to give constructive criticism to the food I ordered today, not only did it take to long for brunch, my steak was over cooked and my eggs were ordered them over easy and they were sunny side up, shakshukah is traditionally served with bread which I didn’t get any🤔😢, we asked for my sons waffles first and they came last, I understand if you want all the food together but a child’s food is more important, back to my plate, it looked like steak and eggs over shakshukah soup, I should have complained at the beginning of the meal but I waited too long for the food to complain, please take this as advice, not a complaint thank you

    Dined here 2 weeks in a row, one date night & Fathers Day dinner. Liz was our server on our first visit she was exceptional & has a gift for hospitality All employee engagement was memorial from the hostess to the other server who assisted with the food. Forgive me for not recalling the waitress’s name from Father’s Day, do not let this be at all a poor refection on her service it too was incredible-same for the young man who was filling water & re-setting tables as the guest departed. Food is perfection from freshness to potion size as well as temperature on all dishes. Drinks are must!! &&& SO IS DESSERT 🍮 Will most definitely be back & refer anyone in the area to go here.

    We had the tasting menu and it was spectacular. The service is remarkable in this post pandemic world. The staff was amazing and created an unforgettable night. The chef came out with the team to serve the main and chat with us. (Yes late diners) Truly remarkable from someone who dines in Manhattan on a weekly basis and worked in hospitality at Noble House resorts. I’m looking forward to trying the other Friedman Hospitality Groups restaurants in the area.

    My friend and I reserved a table to celebrate an early birthday. We were seated in the bar area at a wobbly high top. 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 really enjoyed my experience at B&V. The food and service were excellent as always. 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!
