We 3 ladies go out to lunch once a month and was referred to River Vine as a very nice comfortable place to go to. We only would have liked a larger choice of entrees to choose from. Will plan on returning for a breakfast meet.

Very accommodating service but our food was slow to get served. Also, the brownie dessert had very little chocolate flavor, although it was creative with ganache in the center we couldn't last the chocolate.

Love the remodel. Beautiful smooth floors and open beam ceilings. Thick cushions on chairs make them so comfortable. And the service.... well, absolutely marvelous as usual. Justin was our server. Very attentive but not overwhelming. Saw to our every need graciously. Food was so good... Egg Benedict were supreme!!! Perfect. Country breakfast is always good. The way the chef does the Country Potatoes is just so delicious! Very different than we had ever tasted and loved them! Manager always stops by to see that everything is ok. I've never been to another restaurant where I've seen the manager check in with all his guests! Wonderful experience. Chilly morning so fireplace was going. Nice touch. We will definitely continue to make this a go to place. Weekend brunch is wonderful!!!

This cafe, which is part of the John Ash/ Vineyard Inn complex is a hidden gem. The wait staff is so attentive, the food is delicious, and we were practically the only ones there.

Very disappointed. Had an amazing Sunday brunch after the remodel and thought I would have a small business meeting there. Bacon was burnt eggs were over cooked and the mocha tasteless. The cafe was empty so not sure why my meal was so over cooked.

This is my 3rd time to River Vine Café. The service is always very attentive. The Manager Bobby always stops by to check on you very professional and nice attention to detail. The fish Taco are a must , The Mac and Cheese with bacon is just the correct size, and it was cold and rainy so I had the grilled cheese and tomato Soup. The Carrot Cake is a must. :) I was in with some friends from out of town who then wanted to go look around all of the beautiful Vintners Inn Grounds. Good wine list and fair prices. I would add it to the must try places. And I will be back.

A friendly, upscale but casual atmosphere. Well trained, efficient wait staff. Delicious, if limited, lunch menu. Fair prices.

Pleasant, comfortable atmosphere in which to dine and have a conversation with friends. The staff was friendly and competent, and and the cobb salad was delicious. I will dine there again.

Very flexible in honoring a coupon on the weekend, which seemed to apply only to week days.
Lunch very good, great service.

Light-filled space. Attentive service. Fresh ingredients combined into well-balanced offerings. For lunch this visit: simple whole-wheat avocado toast, flavorful puttanesca, creamy Mac n cheese, fresh salads. Vegetarian friendly.

We had a delightful lunch today at River Vine Cafe. The service was great and our meals were quite good. The recent renovation was very well done - it is comfortable and pretty. All in all a great spot for lunch. I had breakfast at River Vine two weeks ago and it was outstanding.

Great new place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Food is great along with the service and location. The Eggs Benedict are so tasty and the potatoes that they come with are fantastic.
