FOOD WAS GREAT

Service was good but less formal then expected (wine bottle opened at bar, not at table). However this is not the only Fort Myers restaurant where I've seen things a bit off in the wine service. I've been to others where they open it at the table and don't taste or pour! Stop being lazy Ft. Myers!!

The sauce on the filet was outstanding. If it was available in a bottle to take home, I would have bought it. I can still taste the flavors in my mouth.

There was live music which is lovely. It was a bit too loud for us though as the place is small and we really wanted to "talk" at our table.

Overall, we will be back!

This was our 4th or 5th visit, so we like the Fish and Vine. It has a great menu that is diverse enough for all diners. Our family has vegetarians, non-seafood eaters and also some "I'll eat anything" members. The servers are very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. On this visit, and on one previous visit, they seem to be a little under staffed. There was one very large party, of around 10-12, that was being served by our server. He did a great job of balancing each party's needs, but he was stretched really thin. They really should have had a single server dedicated to the large group. It was almost comical to watch the party ask for separate checks, pass dollar bills between each other and use their flip phones as a tip calculator! On a very positive note, on Friday and Saturday evenings, the Fish and Vine has added some live light dining music provided by a pianist, accompanied by a guitar player. A great touch to their great food!

The food and service are always exceptional. The bar crowd is lively during happy hour, so if you want a more peaceful dining experience wait until after 6:30 to dine. Grouper Piccata and the Sea Bass are always excellent. Lamb chops cooked perfectly. Risotto, outstanding.

Left a full review on yelp. Really disappointing. Not busy party of 2 waited close to 40 minutes to get fish dinner. Party came in after us was served and finish before we got ours. Not a good night maybe 4 tables being served. No apologies

We had another great experience at the Fish and Vine. The service/server was fantastic. Most of our meals were equally impressive. The sea bass. Tuna and salmon were very tasty. The ciapino was just okay. It lacked some seasoning to make the dish really pop. Great salads and bread! It’s one of our go to spots! You wouldn’t expect such good food from a place in a strip mall, but it’s worth a try! I highly recommend it!

This was our first visit to Fish and Vine. We were greeted warmly at the door by the hostess. We enjoyed the artwork. I am a seafood lover, and there were many choices on the menu, but I chose the Cioppino which was very good. I very much liked the sweetness of the balsamic dressing I chose for my salad. My husband tends to order beef, and he was very pleased with the ribeye special. Our waiter was attentive, and everything was brought out timely. Enjoyable dining experience overall, and we will definitely return.

What a sleeper of a restaurant! Unless you knew better, you would just drive on by. And you would have missed out an a hidden gem. Service from Max was awesome! The meatball appetizer was phenomenal. Special today was a rib eye — aged 62 days. Unbelievable. Every dish delivered was exceptional. The chef has a gift. Don’t miss out.

Maybe this was an off night, but while the food was good, the service was so-so. Our reservation had been crossed off the list when we arrived, our table apparently having been given to another party of 5. Thankfully, they had another table available that would accommodate us. Once seated, it took a while for the server to come, but once he did, he was pleasant and attentive. Bar service was slow - he put in our order for drinks, and wound up having to get the drinks himself. Ultimately, we had a nice evening, but for the price of the meal, I expect better service.

Our dinner with friends at The Fish & Vine was excellent. This is our "go to" place to dine before a show at the Barbara Mann Theatre. We love the atmosphere, the selections on the menu, the friendliness of the hostess, and the special attention from the wait staff. We look forward to returning next year when we return to Ft.

We dined at this restaurant so that we would be close to The Barbara Mann theater. I ordered a cup of the tomato and basil soup and did not think it had much flavor and it was very thick. The scallops and Shrimp dish was not very flavorful either and had a heavy garlic taste to it. My husband's chicken & linguine dish was also very bland. Probably won't return.

Service staff was very nice. Presentation and portion size of food was generous, prices were competitive. Downside, all three of us selected a fish entree and we all agreed the different dishes tasted “fishy”... I know you could say WHAT IS fish supposed to tase like?... but I’m sure you get it.
Probably should have selected an Italian entree for the evening. Would be worth a return trip for that, however so many restaurants to choose from and if first trip isn’t amazing.. odds for return are...?

We felt the restaurant had a very nice atmosphere. There were 4 of us and 2 of our meals were just "ok", lacking flavor and 2 of us were "upcharged" $2 for ordering a martini. The martini I had was on the specials list for $8, but when I received the bill I was charged $2 more, when I questioned it, I was told because martini's have more alcohol. I should have asked to see the Manager, but I let it go.

Unlike many seafood restaurants in SWFlorida, Fish and Vine was quiet and comfortable. They even adjusted the temperature in the restaurant for us. Our waiter was friendly, informative and not hovering. He recommended his favorite dishes that included the sea bass and a house shrimp dish. Both were terrific. The escargot appetizer was a beyond generous portion. It was served in a basil cream sauce with bacon. I asked for them to hold the bacon which they happily did. The jambalaya soup was also delicious. For dessert we had a chocolate cake and a carrot cake. The chocolate cake served with a bittersweet sauce, would alone be worth going there to eat! At 9:30pm when we asked for coffee it was made fresh and delicious. Highly recommend.

We tried The Fish and Vine for the first time and had a nice time. Our server was great and made helpful recommendations including letting us know that the portions were large- which prompted us to share an entree. The kitchen graciously split the entrees in the kitchen and it was plenty of food. We all said we would go back!
