We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server came over quickly and we ordered a glass of wine each and also put in our dinner choices. Our server returned within 10 minutes to tell us one dinner selection was no longer available. It took close to a half hour to get our drinks, and about 35-45 minutes to finally get our mail course, which came with our appetizer.
I had to ask the server about dessert options as it did not seem she was going to offer us dessert, only to find that both primary options were no longer available but a substitute had been added, which we requested. This resulted in another 35 minute wait.
We are locals and used to eat at the indoor restaurant Brix frequently pre pandemic, but this experience has us questioning what was going on with the kitchen. It will be a while before we return, if we return. Perhaps the vineyard oversold their weekend special, or staffing was short handed, regardless it was a very unpleasant experience.
We had planned to bring visiting family to the vineyard next week, but decided against it due to our experience yesterday. The vineyard is a lovely venue and the menu selections in Brix were always intriguing. We will wait until the fall/winter, and decide if a return visit is worth it.
The tables on the Tank Patio should have umbrellas.
Beautiful patio, great food, wine flights, and great service!
Our server was the BEST! Very attentive and answered all our questions. Will be back in a couple of weeks.
Tank Patio is a great outdoor section of the vineyard. Right by the yard a great spit for groups.
We loved the Tank Patio! Being able to get flights or glasses of beer or wine was great and the snacks (Cheese board & clam chowder) were perfect. They were playing 80s hits, which was super fun. The only thing that could have made the experience better was an umbrella as it was hot and sunny that day.
made you think you were in Napa !!! so beautiful dining in the vineyard
Food was over priced but the weather was nice and made for a wonderful experience
Amazing afternoon enjoying beer and wine flights!
Nice place to eat, beautiful setting. the outdoor area while a nice setting was very hot with full sunshine. Possibly umbrellas on the tables would be an improvement
Easy to reserve. Staff super friendly and helpful. Plentiful cheese platter has 3 cheeses, bread-like crackers, grapes, apricots, figs, 2 dipping sauces. Eclectic sandwiches w/spicy chips. Very enjoyable way to get together with friends. Not full lunch menu but more than enough choices.
Great place to spend a couple of hours and try some out of wines or beers.
Very cute, great food but very okay wine ( tbh it’s New England so not sure why I expected more). Worth it for the food and cute atmosphere, very fun thing to do when the weather is nice
Very cool - nice scene!
I have visited the vineyard before, and have had a better experience. When my partner and I arrived we were sat at the tank patio. The weather was 70 degrees outside however the sun was beaming on the patio and there were no umbrellas over the tables not even in the taproot restaurant. This was an issue for everyone around us and the staff was made aware of the concern. The cheese board platter was very small and then what I received before and the cheese melted due to the heat as well as the wine warming. The vineyard needs to invest in umbrellas as they had in the past and give people what they are paying for.
Hi Monee, thank you for returning for another visit! We're sorry for the lack of shade - we are currently waiting for a special awning installment to fix this. We hope you return to be able to enjoy a more comfortable experience!
Wine was delicious & the scenery was amazing!!! Can’t wait to go back!!
The Vineyard was a great way to spend an afternoon with girlfriends! 😊
They were wonderful and accommodating. Thank you!!
We had a great time eating and drinking outside, it is picture perfect. Our server Victoria was great and everywhere you look was beautiful.
Had some tastings on the Tank Patio. Overall, great experience, beautiful winery views and quick service.
Wines and beers that we tried were good, very drinkable, but nothing to buy to-go.
I kind of wish the music was quieter as it was blasting some 90's songs so loud, it got in a way of enjoying the view and the nature.
Also, it was extremely hot outside and overall experience would've been a lot better in they had some umbrella's for the tables. We were sitting in direct sunlight and it was uncomfortable.
Great place just call ahead on a hot sunny day limited umbrellas or shade
Need more food options on Tank Patio. Wine and beers were very good, however.
Beautiful place. Amazing food and great prices. Really great time for the whole family
Loved the ambience, the wine was delicious, great view of the vineyard, and staff were nice and attentive! Would go back in a heartbeat, highly recommend.
Fun place to taste wines / beer with friends or on a date. The ambience is great and you get to sit among the barrels, tanks and actual vineyard. The actual food and wine was okay, but still made for a fun experience.
The wine, food and service was fantastic! We felt very safe being inside and everything was clean. The Vineyard was very well staffed and our waitress was friendly and on top over everything. Would highly recommend for a fun afternoon!
You will NOT BE disappointed! Perfect setting on a beautiful location. Must try the wine flights🍷🍷🍷🍷Our server’s name was Kathy and she certainly gave us the best experience.
A wonderful evening to spend at the winery. We were a little disappointed that a wedding kept us from being able to explore the vineyard. There was also an hour and half time limit on our table.
For this being our first outing since the start of the pandemic it was a positive one. Masks were worn by servers as well as patrons until you were seated and eating. There was a sufficient amount of space between tables and we never felt uncomfortable.
We love the wines and wish we had more time to enjoy a glass after our initial tasting and meal. They also ran out of the one dessert we were dying to try! Will have to plan another trip to Newport!
First time on the tank patio, since it was all we could get for a reservation. We were NOT disappointed! Great music, great vibe and outstanding service! View of the vines was beautiful, and the grill menu offered enough choices to keep our group happy. Prices are reasonable, and everyone enjoyed the entire experience... highly recommend!
Large outdoor seating area with great wine food options. Service was friendly and professional.
Wonderful wine, service, food, and ambiance!
Loved everything about our visit! We will definitely be back!!!
We got there on time for our noon reservation, just as the restaurant was opening up, few tables were taken. Oddly they are operating outdoors, and have absolutely no umbrellas for shade for the customers, their umbrellas were all being used in the staff areas. Several unoccupied tables did have tree shade. The computer randomly placed us at one of the many tables with no shade though, and the first three women we went through just couldn’t go against the random assignment by the computer, it was beyond them. The third woman trying to help told us they would get me sunscreen to put on so I could sit in the sun. The fourth person we got to was finally the general manager, and we were able to sit at one of the unoccupied tables in the shade. By the time we left, there were still unoccupied tables in the shade. I will not be returning.
My husband and I sat outside the tanks on the patio overlooking the grapevines and enjoying wonderful wine and tapas. We dressed according to the weather and had a wonderful time! The staff was courteous and helpful and the experience was excellent!
NV did a really nice job spacing out tables & accommodating diners. My party of 3 made reservations for Brix Bites, and we enjoyed our time there but the items available are very limited and the portions were really small. Literally, 3 tortilla chips come with the pork & beef chili. Regardless, the winery/brewery is reallly cool & the wine is good (didn't try any beer). Great White is a really nice white wine. I would go back but be more cautious about menu items the next time.
Over the top covid-19 precautions. Server wouldn't even approached our table until we had masks on. We were seated in the back corner where the wine barrels were is very sterile and dark. You weren't even allowed to go outside unless you were escorted. The final straw was the fact that you actually couldn't drink a bottle of wine at a winery! You could only purchase one to take home. Do not recommend!
Hello! Thank you for visiting. Safety and comfort of our guests and staff is our top priority, and we are commended for our compliance with state guidelines. We understand that this makes for a different experience. Our seating details are clarified on our website, as many guests request to be near the barrels. We appreciate your feedback regarding bottle purchases - that is also for safety reasons, but something we always consider.
It was very nice and the server was very good, we went on a beautiful sunny day.
Hi Catherine, we're happy to hear you enjoyed! We look forward to welcoming you back.
Service was horrible. The waitress not only took forever on getting back to our table but constantly took more tables over seeing if we needed anything or asking how we liked our wine choices. Not to mention we gave her 3 debit cards to split evenly and she charged my card the entire bill along with my 2 friends the amount we were all supposed to get charged. Customer service skills are clearly not required to work there
Our waitress must have been having a bad day because she was not very friendly. We felt rushed the entire time and she did not make us feel welcome during our reservation where we were celebrating my significant other's birthday. Besides that the food was great, solid wines and amazing atmosphere. I might have to try it again on another day.
Had a grainy sand that tasted awful and we were told was “sediment” in our wine and was told that was normal by the manager. Ruined the entire visit.
