They took extra precautions regarding the corona virus. Constantly wiped door knobs and menus. Servers wore gloves. Tables spaced.

We love Main & Vine! We started with the burrata (amazing!) and shrimp tempura (delicious!) appetizers. The black grouper is a favorite and so good. We tried the cioppino this time and were disappointed. The tomato sauce was too thick and overpowered the seafood. It also had just a straight tomato taste - nothing to enhance it such as onion, herbs or even fennel. Bland. Also, because the sauce was too thick, it really destroyed the disintegrated the crab. The biggest issue is that it was literally 90% mussels. It basically was a dish of mussels in tomato sauce. The sour dough that came with it was fantastic. Main & Vine is a favorite though and we will definitely be back - we just won't order the cioppino.

We went here for our 4th wedding anniversary. The food needed help. Sweet potato hummus was okay not great. Brussel sprouts lyonnaise had way to much acid. My chicken was bleeding (yes blood) and the cioppino was made with a red sauce not a broth. The devil’s chocolate cake was underwhelming. What made up for the okay food was a fantastic wine list, @lacolombecoffee coffee and great service. Also, Thursday is live music night. #mainandvinebistro #localeats #rileyeats

My family and I visited Mine and Vine for the first time on Sunday 2/23 for their Sunday Buffet brunch. From the moment we walked in, it was very clean and set up beautifully for brunch. It was reasonably priced. They had a gentlemen in there providing acoustic music, which was wonderful. I will definitely be going back again! I really wish I could remember the two gentlemen that assisted our table because they were fantastic, very attentive and extremely helpful, especially at our request of finding soy or almond milk for my niece and for finding an extra thing of fruit loops cereal for my son!

Excellent food. We were placed by the door on a very cold night so I had to wear my coat for dinner. Reservations were at 8:00 pm on a Saturday and half the items ordered were no longer available but the food that was available was excellent and perfectly prepared.

Slow service when it’s busy. Bar and dinner table. Really slow. Gave my appetizer to the table next to me. When I said never mind, cancel it, he brought mine out anyway, super late, and charged me. Even After I said cancel it. The table next got my app free, and I paid for mine after I canceled it. When we Arrived to the bar at 5:40. there was a total of 4 of us at the bar. Took forever to get a drink. They were too busy prepping for the night it seemed. Took forever to get the check and EVEN LONGER to get the credit card back. The place is nice, the food is good, but the service, ahhh.

Went to M&V on Feb. 13 to enjoy some great food with friends and catch a performance by the legendary Jontourage. It turned out to be the absolute best night! Not only was the food amazing...the place was packed! The service was incredible for how busy they were. The vibe was awesome...it was the place to be on Thursday night. M&V has been having a lot of live music lately and it just adds to the already wonderful experience with the food and drinks. This is my go to place for a fun night out with friends or an intimate meal with my husband. Can’t wait to return!

Way understaffed and sat our server with at least 9 tables from what I could observe in about a 20-30 min span. Took 25 mins to order. Then just over an hour to get the food.
He tried hard. But it was just not happening. Hope they learned their lesson.

Waiter was in a coma, and, despite 3-spaced out “reminders,” he didn’t bring our bread until my last fork of Carbonara! Brought a spectacular $400 vintage bottle of vino (98), and although I was quite happy with their corkage ($25) policy, our waiter didn’t touch it other than opening it (didn’t offer to decant) and his taking us up on our offer to taste THE best bottle in the building!
Will be back, but Mike will not wait MY table ever again!

We have been to Main and Vine a few times before, and although I would not rate it as a "5" star restaurant, we have always had an above average meal. On this most recent visit, I suggested to several other friends that we come here for dinner; we were extremely disappointed in both the service and the food. The scallop special was almost too salty to eat and the appetizer crab cakes were way over-priced for the product. The hummus and Sunday Ragu were very good, as was the butternut squash soup. The rest of our entrees were just OK. The server was curt and complained every time she came to the table about how busy she was and because of the basketball game, she could not guarantee good service (we were there 2.5 hours prior to the game, so we told her no rush, that's why we were there early). She never came back to ask how the food was, so the people who ordered the scallops did not even have a chance to tell her about the salty dish, which perhaps could have been rectified. We all had a good time, despite that, but unfortunately, I doubt my 6 other friends will ever be back, which is unfortunate, because the restaurant is in a great location. Because we have been there before, I would probably try it again, but honestly, the Refectory, down the road in Villanova is a far superior choice, especially for the cost.

A quiet night at Main and Vine was just what the doctor ordered. My parents visited from Lancaster and we all had a lovely time. The appetizers were fantastic. We really enjoyed the calamari and wellfleet oysters. My parents ordered the grouper and I ordered the duck. My dish was a great balance of sweet and savory while the grouper was a great savory seafood delight. For dessert, while I normally like the budino, the rum raisin cannoli sundae was a lovely change of pace. Overall the selection of wine, beer, and cocktails was lovely as well. The ambiance and decor matched. I can definitely recommend an easy sunday dinner here and recommend it to all! Apparently they also do brunch with live music!

The noise level is significant with music blaring away

While there appear to be enough wait staff they are poorly organized

The kitchen expeditor is nonexistent as entres arrive piecemeal

Our side arrived 10 minutes after the entre

The French fries must have been frozen as they had freezer burn

The rib eye was unevenly cooked and an inferior cut

The new may have worn off, but the vibe hasn't! It's still great and promises to remain so, after multiple fine times and meals there. Following drinks at the well stocked bar, we started with artichokes, calimari, and Brussels sprouts before tackling grouper and a burger. Everything was perfectly done, beautifully presented, and a joy to eat. The wine list is very carefully (even affectionately) put together by someone who knows what he or she is doing. There are many wonderful wines you'll rarely if ever see in restaurants around here, like the Michael David Inkblot cab franc we had and loved. With great service from a skilled, friendly staff, there's everything to love and nothing to upset.

Food was great, ambiance regarding decor- great, noise level very loud but some may like an energetic setting, and lastly, I sincerely hope the glacially slow service was due to an unexpected staff shortage otherwise, service was abysmal.
