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.

We had a blast at the UnValentine’s Party! The band was so much fun and we will definitely be back to see them. It was a festive scene and as always the food and drinks were top notch.

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.

Overall my girlfriends and I completely enjoyed our breakfast buffet and Main and Vine. The service was friendly and professional, the atmosphere sleek but not pretentious and the live music was enjoyable. The food overall was delicious, as were the $5 bloody marys, which I was skeptical about for $5, but they were delicious! The only minor complaint was the omelette bar - my friend's omelette was definitely overcooked, but runny with butter at the same time, not really edible. Otherwise we really enjoyed it and will be back! Hope next time the weather will be warmer to sit outside.

There are not enough superlatives to describe the dinner that we had at Main and Vine. All the dishes from the crabcakes and lamb meatballs and sweet potato hummus to include the grouper and cioppino were excellent. The staff including Jason the Sommelier and Christian our waiter were excellent in their service.

We just tried the brunch this Sunday and it was incredibly great. From the excellent shrimp cocktail and lox to the roast pork Benedict and the delicious omelette station. The carving station with prime rib was wonderful. Bargain bloody Mary’s were fantastic as well -perfectly spiced. The live music with guitar player was an extra delightful touch.
The brunch buffet had everything you could imagine or one for a Sunday brunch with friends from cheeses and charcuterie to prime rib and beyond. All in all a great experience. Our waitress, Mumta was extremely attentive and professional.

We visited for our Girls' Sunday brunch. We received excellent service and the food was amazing! The only issue we encountered was that there were not enough serving tongs for each food item. Cross contamination was a concern. We loved the live guitar player/vocalist. He even took our request! We talked about coming back soon!

It was a snowy night, and the restaurant was not that busy. Having said that, both the waiter and the manager kept visiting our table to check on things, and review the various menu item ingredients for 2 of the diners with SEVERAL food allergies.

Great bar area, and ambiance; 'Better than we expected on a snowy night' food and service.

We will definitely return to Main and Vine
