My boyfriend and I decided to go come here to celebrate his birthday after hearing nothing but good reviews from family and friends. It was very quiet for Wednesday night at 6pm, but that was probably due to the horrible storm that was taking place! We walked up to the hostess stand so that we could be seated, but she was on the phone and did not acknowledge our presence even once in the few minutes we were standing there. Eventually we are walked to our table, and not even a minute after sitting down, our waiter asked us if we were ready to order. We thought it was strange that he was in such a hurry to get our order since there was only 2 other tables that were actually occupied. This type of rushed service lasted over the course of the entire meal and made it very difficult to enjoy. My burger was pretty good, but my boyfriends crabcakes were burnt, and average at best. We eventually got our check and before we could even get our coats on, our waiter came back and took the check. I'm all for fast service (especially on weeknights), but what is not enjoyable is feeling like you're being rushed the entire time you're trying to enjoy a meal. I left with the impression that this is a place to churn out tables as quickly as possible, and not one where you can sit down and enjoy a meal.

Don't waste your time making reservations. I made my reservation days in advance for a roof top table only to have my request ignored. The food is over priced and poor quality. Even with reservations they make you wait in a long line when you get to the restaurant.

Alexandria the host was very friendly. Our overall experience was great and we would definitely come again. The food was good. We ordered shrimp cocktail as an app. Then had the burger and chicken sandwich. The chicken was a little dry but the burger was so yum and juicy. We have a carafe of rose spritz which was also good and a great value for $45. Would def come back again.

One of those times when everything falls into place... The weather was nice, the view was spectacular, the restaurant had our table ready even though we arrived (seven of us) 15 minutes early. The waitress was as pleasant as can be, the service was timely. The menu was just long enough to have something for everybody, without overdoing it. The food was good, even if the oysters were all the small type. Somewhat noisy but not the boisterous, half-drunk or fake laughter noisy... the smiling, good looking, amiable noisy. Finally, prices were as expected... neither less nor more expensive than other nice places. Definitely a place to return to.

While I’ve had many positive experiences here, this one overshadows all of them as the worst experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. We were immediately sat (since we had a reservation), however a waiter didn’t not come up to us for at least 15 minutes, once one finally did we asked if we could get some water & rather than asking if we needed anything else (mind you we were prepared to order) he just ran off gave a few orders to the bus boy. The bus boy took multiple pitchers of water to the large table next to us, but we received nothing. We waited about another 10 minutes (25 minutes) and finally decided to leave....very hungry and very thirsty. I really loved this place, but not sure I’ll go back or recommend it to any friends.

I reserved a table for 8(4 adults and 2 children) at 3.30pm. We were celebrating my daughter's graduation. We got there on time, but as soon as we got there the hostess who took us in told us that we had to be out by 5pm if we dine inside, which is where they had set up our table. We decided not to seat inside since we didn't like to be rushed. Outside, we also had to choose between being on the sun or the shade. The shaded tables also had the 5pm cut off time. We decided to have them set up a longer table outside. Between the time we arrived to the time we were seated took 30 min. Once we were seated, we were hit with another dilemma, it was 5 min to 4pm and we needed to put our order ASAP in order to order from the lunch menu. Because at 4pm they were changing to the dinner menu, and the lunch menu was not going to be available. The servers were cordial and accommodating, I believe they probably were following "orders" from management. In any case, the food took a while to come, and the dessert forget it, I took double the time of the food. To make things worst the creme brulee with berries had berries that were going bad, you can clearly see them.In any case, I don't blame the servers or the hostess, they did the best with what they had. But the beautiful view from this restaurant should match the food and service given. We try to make the best of it, but were disappointed that such joyous occasion was damper by the food and service of this restaurant.

I have been to City Vineyard a couple of times and was really looking forward to bringing my family for my son’s milestone Birthday.Everything about it has gone downhill since last summer’s great experience.They really need to step up everything from the reception,service snd food.I had booked my reservation at least a month in advance for 6 people , therefore I was expecting a more gracious reception and we’ll located table.After negotiating to be placed outside, we were served our drinks half heartedly.I heard from 3 members of our party that the paella was really good (I am allergic) but after I had a salad,my mushroom flatbread came.I could not believe my eyes.It was a very sorry sight... a few sprinkled cheap mushrooms on uncooked flatbread drenched in balsamic which I presume was done to cover up the fact that there were no mushrooms.How cheap can a restaurant be?

It’s a beautiful place next to the river... definitely one time a go. I ordered the French toast... delicious ... however the loud music during brunch time put me off.

Online the website seemed like a quiet, upscale restaurant. In reality, it’s a venue for affluent 20-somethings and 30-somethings-who-still-wish-they-were-20-somethings to drop $70 a bottle and get shwasty on a Sunday afternoon. Additionally, the river view is an abandoned pier, complete with manure pile for landscaping. Saw multiple people who had over-imbibed, was too loud to have a conversation, and the bathroom line wrapped around the building. If you want a party scene, that’s your place. Don’t go for a gentle, older afternoon, or any semblance of a conversation.
