    My second time here and it just keeps getting better. The food quality is impeccable, the service is so warm and attentive, I love the atmosphere (maybe too many pillows), the wine selection is GLORIOUS and I’ve had many sweet dreams about it. Thank you for having the most vast and delicious options for vegetarians. Thank you and I can’t wait to return many more times!

    The food and drinks are disappointing, especially considering the higher price point. I ordered the Carne skewer - it had maybe three pieces of meat and they were all dry and poorly seasoned. Service was slow and staff was not aware of the menu. I would not recommend and won’t be coming back.

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on September 12, 2022Thank you for sharing your feedback! I was very disappointed to learn that you had a less than impressive experience. I was saddened that the carne pincho you had ordered was not to our usual standard especially as it is one of my personal favorites As a small independent restaurant, I look at all feedback as an opportunity to improve product and service. I will send you a DM to understand more about your visit so we identify and correct any service issues as well. Thank you again. - Robert

    EXCELLENT food, great flavors, wonderful textures, aromatic, very tasty. IN fact, ordered a second round it was so good. Very extensive wine list, but wine is very expensive. 6oz pour of a light white was $16. Cocktail selection is very minimal and also over-priced. $70 bill and $46 of it was one cocktail and two glasses of wine. Overall - Will DEFINITELY return for the food but with water, no drinks. :)

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on August 31, 2022Hi Jim! Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your recent visit! I was very pleased to see that you enjoyed the food! As you had mentioned we are primarily a wine bar with over 40 wines available by the glass in both 3 and 6oz pours. We have 6 glasses starting at $10, and are priced based upon the quality of wine and producer, our team is always willing to walk you through the selection. Thank you again for your visit and review. I hope to meet you soon. - Robert

    First off, I must say the food was fantastic. Very fresh ingredients, great preparation, and truly delicious. The drinks, however, were extremely expensive and no where near worth the price. I have to stress, do not order a cocktail. Service was fair, but I’d prefer a server be able to speak to and recommend popular dishes. Most of these comments would be moot if everything wasn’t too expensive. To be a great place they need to relax their pricing.

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on August 20, 2022Thank you so much for your review. I was saddened to learn of your disappointment with our drinks and service. I couldn't agree with you more about having a server that would make recommendations regarding the menu. While we are primarily a wine bar with 40 wines by the glass, we do offer a few traditional South American cocktails such as pisco sours. We also have a selection of higher tier spirits that we offer. I am very sorry that we failed to meet your expectations

    We had a wonderful experience! We didn't know what to expect but our waiter was completely attentive, the food looked JUST like the pictures on IG and the time we booked (5 PM) was perfect because it wasn't too loud. As we were leaving, it was starting to get super packed so it was the perfect time for our group to be there. We will definitely be back!!!

    The food was amazing! The restaurant has a great vibe and the service was great. My husband and I had the chicken empanada, chicken arepa, beef arepa, shrimp chiveche, and the plantains. All of it was excellent and we would order everything again. I also had the caipirinha and it was great as well.

    The chef's tasting with wine pairing was truly an outstanding experience, not to be missed next time! Learning the creative thought process behind the menu inspiration contributes to the delicious flavors served. Each course was unique and the over all menu had something for everyone. Presentation an art form. Learning about the wines adds to the experience (I bought several from Macs today!) And as always, service was spot on. We are so fortunate to have this "truly a neighborhood gem!"

    Ate here prior to a show at The Fox. The staff was great getting our food and drinks knowing we had to leave at a certain time. The food was so good- the yucca fries and plantains were amazing. The only possible negative was the volume inside. There is nothing to mute the volume so it was quite loud. If you plan on hearing the people at your table, I suggest a table outside.

    Great wine selection! The empanadas are amazing. My friend said the empanadas were the best she has had and she loves empanadas, so she has had many of them. I love a couple blocks away and just love being able to take visiting friends here. One of the owners even came by our table to introduce himself. Such great service and lovely food! Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures because I was too focused on eating!

    Went for a bite and a drink before a show. Our waiter literally disappeared half way through our meal. After asking another staff member we were told he had to go home. This led to a stressful experience when you are on a time crunch to get to the Fox. Another waiter stepped in and was great but still left a bad taste in our mouth. Food was tasty but overpriced
