    My son and I had dinner at B+V on a Saturday evening. The week we dined with them featured their “All Italian Ecoli” menu. The food was outstanding, especially the pastas which we had as a half order so we could also get an entree. Both the Brown Butter Gnocchi and the Cacio e Pepe were cooked to perfection and the sauces were well executed. I ordered the Branzino and my son the Veal Parmigiana as our entrees. We did not leave hungry by any means! Cocktails were very good. Wine selection is a bit restricted but we enjoyed a nice Chianti Classico. I want to especially mention our server, Dave, who was just fantastic: very attentive, friendly, and informative about the food selections. The Hostess and Coat Check ladies who greeted us were also very friendly and courteous. Overall, a GREAT experience. My wife and I had eaten there previously on two occasions and we loved it then as well. Will definitely return next time we are in town!

    In a word- FABULOUS. What a beautiful venue! Service was excellent, Thanks Max! Started with oysters, they were so delish, we ordered two more plates. Charcuterie platter was fun. The kitchen sent us two dishes, Turnip Carpaccio, OUT OF THIS WORLD, and then Lupini beans in a saladish dish. Sooo good. By the time our wonderful entrees came, we were stuffed. Wonderful leftovers, I say! As someone with a smaller appetite, I really appreciate that they offer half orders of pasta dishes. This was a memorable meal, and we look forward to coming back many times.

    I would recommend Bank and Vine for a nice dinner out. Service was excellent, but the food and drinks took a long time to get to the table and this was on a Tuesday night at 6:45. We only had two courses and didn’t get out of there until almost 9. This made us late to the show we were seeing. Everyone was cordial from our arrival to departure. The food and cocktails were excellent.

    This was the first time my wife and I had the pleasure to dine here. Staff was professional, welcoming, and on point throughout our entire visit. The food was exceptional, well timed for all three courses, and the quality vs price was very reasonable. The cocktails that we enjoyed were expedient, very well mixed and delicious. At the end of the night we honestly couldn’t find a single part of our time there that felt lacking or left us wanting. Hands down one of the best dining experiences we have had.

    We didn't want to be seated in a booth so we were seated next to the front door. The waitress had a bit of an attitude about simple questions about the menu. The servers were stop and drop and did not answer any questions. Maybe I'm spoiled earing in NYC to much but I would not come back.

    This is the second time here and going back again next week. Because the food is outstanding better than some of the high end restaurants I've been in NYC. You must try the Carrot dish as well as the Brussel sprouts, but everything is perfect. I drive 45 minutes one way to go there because it is that good and I am very picky. The Chef accommodates each dish to my liking as I order the waitress ( who is a Doll ) checks on the way you like things as you order them and they actually come out that way. I can't believe the freshness of even the garnish which is all eatable. I haven't tried the drinks because I always s drive but my wife and my daughter loved the drinks. This is a must try, especially recommend going on an off night not Friday or Saturday and get even better service and less noise. But that's just me I like quiet. The place is beautiful.

    The meal started well, with excellent toasts. The brunch left a lot to be wanted. There was cilantro all over the truffle potatoes, this was not listed anywhere and I am allergic. The waitress was quick to have it remade and brought an I'm sorry pastry from the kitchen. On my second bite, there were eggshells in the pastry. When my replacement sandwich was brought out shortly thereafter, by another waitress the bacon was severely undercooked. It took a while to get the waitress' attention, as at this point, we just wanted to go. They did take my sandwich off the bill, and the waitress showed the manager the sandwich, but the manager never came over to say anything. It was a very disappointing experience overall to say the least.

    This is talked as one of the nicest restaurants in the greater Wilkes-Barre area. One area ambience is very nice, the other area you could be seated is like a pub. very loud. so if you think you made a reservation for a romantic dinner out, think again- depends on were you are seated - so how do you dress. We are dressed up very nicely and are surrounded in people in dirty jeans and baseball caps. Now the food. OMG my partner ordered the strip steak at the price of $38 - they take the word strip seriously as they took a strip steak and cut it long ways and made 3 entrees from one steak. SO VERY VERY SMALL AMOUNT of a very tough piece of meat. I ordered a hamburger as nothing else appealed to me as I have been to this restaurant before and did all the small plates and being very unimpressed knew I couldn't go that route. How can you ruin a HAMBURGER. I asked for it medium well. It was cooked so must I had to ask for a steak knife to cut and still had trouble, Had to use ALOT of ketchup to get it down. It was suppose to have blue cheese on it- it was literally a straight line the width of a pencil across the top. The bun was I guess to be toasted - well didn't have to cut that as it was so hard it just feel apart and was unediable. Then there were the little bugs ( I don't know if they were fruit flies ) but they arrived when the food was served and were all around the food and in our faces. It had to be one of the WORST meals we have ever had and a very bad experience over all. SO WE HAD NO APPETIZERS , NO DRINKS ( EVEN SODA OR COFFEE) NO DESSERT - JUST THE HAMBURGER AND THE STRIP STEAK OH AND THE $12 BRUSSEL SPOUTS.- BILL WAS $100 FOR THE 2 OF US FOR BAD FOOD AND BUGS. OUTRAGOUS.

    Great dinner to experience with chocolate and bourbon! Courses were delicious especially the mushroom toast and the truffles. One suggestion would be to make the dining experience more educational as far as why each of the bourbons paired with each course as well as how to properly drink them.

    When we entered we were greeted by a very polite hostess who actually accommodated us since we had requested a table in the main room with fabric chairs. She was outstanding and kind. Then we were delighted to have Max as our waiter he was amazing!! Finally Liz has always been our family favorite. She made sure to stop by our table to wish my daughter a very happy birthday. We will see you all soon!!!! Thank you again for another beautiful dinner and experience.

    The two specialty drinks and burrata with beets appetizer were excellent. The pasta and lamb entrees were very good as was the chocolate cake dessert. The only criticism is that the price point was a just a little high for the overall quality/quantity of the meal.
