    We cannot say enough good things about this place. The atmosphere was lovely. The staff members were incredibly polite. The food was next level. Everything we ate was a multifaceted flavor bomb. We had apps, entrees, and desserts. This is perhaps the best restaurant we have ever been to. Highly recommend!

    The experience was excellent. This was the first trip to Bank + Vine but probably won’t be the last. I’m not from the Wilkes-Barre area anymore but the combination of food and environment was enough to make sure I’ll book a reservation the next time I’m back in the area. I’m not much of a brunch person, however the menu was phenomenal and the food was perfect.

    Bank+Vine offers a variety of menu options that all looked so delicious it was difficult to choose. We were there for a special Italian themed event that included additional pasta and seafood dishes. The restaurant is in a historic bank building and is beautifully decorated. Delicious fine dining in a comfortable atmosphere.

    My 3rd visit and it didn't disappoint. Over 2.5 hours drive from home but when I am in the area, I wouldn't miss it. Both dishes this evening were wonderful and the service was outstanding. A new grill had the carrots a bit overcooked, but the manager made it right for us. We'll be back soon ☺️

    This is not only a great weekend date spot, but also a wonderful mid-week respite restaurant. We chose from a varied, creative menu (loved the burrata with grilled peaches and corn!) and had top notch service. Even on a Wednesday, the place has a great vibe. Next time you want a break from weekly cooking, go here!

    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.
