    We had a lovely time at El Viñedo. We started off with some delicious coffee and tea. Our server was so kind and helpful. Ask for Lawrence! He has a great laugh too. The empanadas were my favorite and the yucca fries were cooked perfectly.

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on November 29, 2022Hi Sami! Thank you so much for your comments regarding your recent visit! I am glad that you enjoyed your experience! I have shared your review with Lawrence, and I know he will be delighted that he made such a great impact on your visit. I hope to meet you on a return visit.

    Food is delicious. We liked everything we had and the wine list is extensive. The service was ok, not polished or super professional but staff was friendly and attentive. The space got quite noisy once it filled up.

    We made a reservation and the didn’t have any food to offer. Any!!! That was so upsetting. You should of told us when we where reserving that at that hour there weren’t any food and that was very sad and upseting

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on November 29, 2022I would like to begin by expressing my most sincere apology for your recent experience. We offer food each day from the time we open until 1 hour before closing, and we do not take any reservations during that period so I am a bit confused as to the service you received. I sent you direct message to get more details so that we can identify and correct any issue. Once again, I am truly sorry for the service you received. - Robert, Owner

    While the food was exceptional, the service, sadly, was not. Our waiter asked if I wanted water and then never brought it. He also forgot to ring in my wine flight until reminded 10+ minutes later. Then, when it was brought to the table, there was no explanation as to which wine was which. After we finished the entrees, the server brought the check, and we asked to see a dessert menu. We decided on a dessert, but could not find the waiter, so we paid virtually and left. If they had been busy, I would have not minded as much but there were only a handful of tables.

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on November 29, 2022Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I was very disappointed to learn that you had service issues. I have sent you a direct message, so that I can work to turn this around for you. Once again, I truly appreciate your feedback, and hope to hear from you soon. - Robert, Owner

    Food was very tasty - especially loved the arepa with the pulled beef. Fish ceviche with sweet potatoes also really good. The service was a bit slow; took a LONG time to get our initial cocktails and then another long time to get wine after that. And there didn't seem to be any concern on our server's part that things were so slow. Wine prices also pretty high.

    El Viñedo LocalResponded on November 2, 2022Thank you so much for your visit and for your comments! I am pleased to learn that you enjoyed the quality of the food. I appreciate your notes about the speed of service, and I apologize for any inconvenience that it may have caused you. As a newer restaurant, we are still adjusting to changes in demand and your feedback will certainly help us with that. Once again, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I hope that we will see you again in the future.

    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 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.
