Great place for a special occasion. It was our two year anniversary. We had the shrimp and andouille fritters which were delicious. The salmon was cooked perfectly for my wife. I had the beef stroganoff which was amazing.

Food was amazing, came fast and delicious. The cocktails we ordered were the best]]]]. But the cherry on top was the service, having our waiter speaking Spanish to my Colombian friend and French to my swiss girlfriend, was amazing, he made everybody feel at home, answered every question about the menu and recommended the Porkchop that was delicious!

We came early for brunch on Saturday and it was actually really a treat. The French toast tasted great and the ambiance and atmosphere are much to be desired. Our server got a little weeded at the end but he was still a very excellent server. The manager even stopped by to make sure we were enjoying everything.

My wife and I had a great time. The food was great. Our server could not have been better. She was just terrific. The manager we met took care of us. The Valet Parking was spot on. Our table and spot was just perfect. Very quiet! We just had a great evening. We could not recommend the Old Vinings Inn enough. Libby and I have nothing but great experiences every time we have come.

I would recommend due to the quality of the food and service!!!....however, the place needs some TLC....I was really disappointed in the appearance of the attic bar. I have not been here in several years, but I am not sure I would go back. It was sad to see the lack of attention to the building itself....

This place was a suggestion via the local tv show “Atlanta Eats”. Food was not what I expected. Food came to the table Luke warm and the presentation of the food didn’t match the great atmosphere. Kudos for the ambiance and atmosphere at the upstairs at. Just not what I expected. I would still recommend this place to others but mostly for the atmosphere and the ambience not the food.

Old Vinings Inn is a quaint, charming restaurant with delicious food. Their fried chicken is the best and so are their fried green tomatoes. We had excellent service and a small room to ourselves which was great for a party of 8. The price was reasonable and valet parking a plus. We will be back!

Fri. Evening at 600 pm was a bad choice. Normally the food is great, but I was not impressed this evening. It was early, we were the only customers, perhaps the chef wasn't warmed up yet.

Ask for the Bear Room! Fried chicken was a little dry, but the collard greens, fried green tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, salmon, meatloaf, filet mignon, and bread pudding were all excellent.

This was a cute place and the staff was obviously proud of it. My only complaint was that when we went for the Valentine's dinner on Sunday night, they were out of a lot of specials even though it wasn't late. What I got instead was the lobster dinner, which everything was really good, so I'm not too upset about it. Also, the staff was very accommodating. Would like to go back again.

I arrive at the V Inn before my reservation time, and they took us early. Great! However, that’s where the experience ended. We waited 15 minutes to be greeted, and additional 5 or more to get water. We ordered our apps and food.... and the apps cam out with our food. Some of which was cold. Although my experience wasn’t great, I’m willing to try again, because the staff apologizes and that turkey sausage was amazing.

The waitress was awful, she mumbled and totally forgot about us leaving the room for over 20 minutes twice. She took orders from two tables that came in after us, leaving us over 35 minutes before taking it. Took 10 minutes to get our drinks. The eggs Benedict’s were actually cold when we received them and while we were comped the beignets 5 were hot the 6th was cold and hard so obviously left from a previous order.

Since other tables were being tended too regularly I must surmise all of this was the waitresses failure at her job. She appeared to be half asleep when she was there so maybe she had a very late night.

I hope for the restaurants sake this was an anomaly and they are better than this normally.

We won’t be back though

The food was pretty good, but could have been a little warmer. The filet mignon though was excellent-cooked exactly right! Our server was friendly and did a pretty good job. My only real complaint was that we arrived on time for our 7:15 reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. It was Valentine's Day, so they were crowded. Still, you do make a reservation for a reason...
