The food was delicious & the service was excellent - being surprised with a complimentary glass of Prosecco to celebrate my birthday was lovely. We especially loved the bottle of red wine we ordered which was very reasonably priced.

The food is excellent and they are always updating their menu so that you can usually find something new to try. Food is great for sharing or getting a meal for yourself. Reservations are a good idea so that you are ensured a table. Relaxing atmosphere. Great for a girls lunch or evening out or a date night

My husband and I enjoyed our meal immensely. The only gluten free option for dinner was Lamb which I would not normally order. However, it was delicious and I will order it again.
The desserts were also devine.

The food is outstanding. I love that there is no salt and pepper shakers on the table because the food is so perfectly seasoned, they arent necessary. Flavors are simple yet decadent and rich. It was hard to save room for dessert but so glad we did. The creme brulee was amazing. Always a unique experience and never leave feeling hungry. A real treat !

Airdrie’s best kept secret! My husband and I went for a date night and everything was perfection. They knocked every item out of the park. I am vegan and he comes up with fun and delicious options for me every time. An absolute pro. The server was friendly and attentive but not annoying. Will be going back many times!

The food is fantastic. The drink selection is decent. The pricing is reasonable except for the by-the-glass wines. Those are a bit overpriced for a 5-ounce glass. It's a nice quiet and cozy atmosphere was good service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The food was amazing, especially the French onion cheese fondue! Service was good, and quick. Only downfall was the outside seating areas greenery Is not taken care of-lots of weeds everywhere! For such a nice restaurant this was a let down for the overall atmosphere and ambience. We will def be back though, was a great night out!

Had been wanting to try first and vine for a while now, and finally got the chance to! It was worth the wait. A friend and I went for a late afternoon lunch, we ordered the bruchetta to start, and the grilled cheese with soup for our meals. The food was phenomenal, especially the bruchetta! Probably the best one I’ve ever had. The service was on point and the atmosphere was lovely. Will definitely be back!

The ambient noise was unbearable, I've also complained about it to the waitress, but it looked like they don't care. The problem is that they've transform a ruffly 1700 sqf regular two level house into a no-doors open house type of eatery. There is no really any type of adjacent room available, the washrooms is in the basement! The space was really crowded, squeezed to the max. available space, and so, the noise level was just resoundingly high. Also, on the second floor, not having a door to close behind in the designated serving room sized like a kid's bedroom, has just amplified the noise like a resonance chamber.
For what they've offer, prices are way too high, there is no guide on the menu about the real size of any portion (two options: small or large!!!), just the price. Also, there was no question at all from the server about the level of meat being done, so when it arrived it was already in a rare stage, which was not acceptable for the kids, even for the main majority of us. I could bear it, but when we tried to make sure the remaining of it will be done to our wish, we were told it was already too late. The iced water was served in some type of preserved fruits/veggies uncapped jars, hard to handle and filled up to the very top edge. Just one "whiskey" type of glass available, no salt/pepper, tooth picks, napkins. The dishes were not served on a regular plates but on a kind of elongated shape type serving plates, some of them really heavy (4-5 lbs empty).
We had a "large" side dish for everyone, but even so, we left hungry. Combined, the average price/person was $30! Got everybody out and stopped at our place where my wife cooked a similar dinner bellow $7/person, double quantity and way much better taste, the meat done properly to our taste, plus no that crazy noise level around. The only reason that we've got onto that place was because it was a special dinner my mom asked for. I'm sure we'll never go back again nor recommend this place to anyone!

This was our second visit to First & Vine. Food and service was great as always, but the music upstairs was not exactly what I would term dinner music. We were in a small room which we hoped would be quite as we were trying to visit with friends. I asked to have the music turned down or changed as it was closer to heavy metal. That did not happen. I was disappointed about that. Some soft jazz would have been nice, or even what was playing, just keep it down so people can carry on a conversation.

Went to celebrate a birthday on a Tuesday night. The service was absolutely terrible - extremely slow and unpleasant server. We didn’t get our first drink until at least 20 minutes after sitting down. In 1.25 hours we had received two of our small plates. I had to inquire about the rest of the plates and it became clear the server forgot and did not care. At this point it had taken so long we cancelled the remainder of our plates. They did take our drinks off the bill, but overall still a disappointing dinner and left feeling dissatisfied. The food was good but found it to be overpriced.
