    I was very disappointed with our first visit for brunch. The ceviche was ok but small. The tartare was great but they don't give you enough bread. The brioche was strange for the French toast and it was gritty due to too much ground graham cracker or something not listed on the menu. The Benedict hae nice poached eggs but the ham was blah and the biscuits were inedible. Somehow dry and doughy at the same time, and there was no hollandaise. So absolutely dry. The spicy bloody Marys were not spicy. Not sure we'll be back. Maybe we'll try dinner.

    First time to their brunch - good experience, nice variety of food, great service but... The two baked goods we tried (cinnamon bun and biscuit) were very dense and heavy - I could not cut the cinnamon bun with a table knife. The white cheddar and bacon omelette was delightful: moist, flavorful and cooked to perfection. The eggs Benedict had a 5 star Hollandaise sauce and perfectly cooked poached egg. Unfortunately the biscuit it was served on was too dry and dense for this particular dish. Overall a great venue, we will be returning to try other items on the menu. Kudos to offering brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

    Bank + Vine is the epitome of what a wonderful dining experience is all about. Amazing, fresh, seasonal food; playful textures and explosive flavor combinations; an attentive staff who is well educated on the menu and ingredients used; menu variety and truly something for everyone; a luxe, but comfortable atmosphere. Every time I dine at Bank + Vine I am more and more impressed with their attention to detail and whimsical take on cuisine. I cannot wait to return to enjoy some of their summer selections again before we’re onto fall’s surprise.

    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!
