The Vine is a welcoming environment for working, playing, eating, and drinking helmed by Chef Laurent Tourondel. For Breakfast, The Vine features an American-style menu; with favorites like the Avocado Toast and the Country-Style Buttermilk Pancakes. We offer freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices, coffee and espresso from La Colombe, and an assortment of pressed juices from Pure Green. For Lunch and Dinner, the menu is a creative take on new world American-cuisine. The menu features locally sourced, vegetable-centric options of all sizes, in addition to the more classic take on the Burger and Hanger Steak entrees. Specials change weekly and the menu with the seasons. The cocktail bar, curated by Percy Rodriguez, seeks to elevate seasonal classics through new artisanal spirits, liqueurs, and house-made infusions. The draft beer program is a selection of craft beers from highly sought after breweries from all over the US.

We were greeted with a smile and taken to our table and they checked our coats and bags so we were comfortable.

Very noisy. Had a few waiters but one in particular - think he was also Mgt as he wore a suit - couldn’t care less about us. My burger was completely tasteless.

Mediocre at best. Turkey Club lacked taste. One of 4 dishes considered worth returning for. Must say the bread (need to ask for it) was outstanding. Calamari appetizer was quite good too. Server mixed up drink order. Nice atmosphere but was hoping for better food.

There was a little confusion with the final bill, which I am still waiting to see gets corrected on my card -- but I was sure to keep copies of the updated receipt. Service can be a little slow, but good burgers and the sazarac was excellent.

Had a very nice lunch there with a friend -- able to be leisurely and comfortable. I was happy to find some healthy lunch choices and the food and iced tea were delicious. I will definitely be back.
I rated Vine as quiet but the noise level may be different at other times -- note that the drinks menu offered some cocktails by the glass OR the carafe.

Food should have been better; for the prices and the level of expectation in a space as nice as this Kimpton hotel, it should have been overall bettr.

The dishes were overly greasy, salty and it just seemed rushed and very little attention to balancing the flavors.

Service towards the end lacked, the server forgot about us and took too long in asking us about dessert, and we ended up skipping.

The Vine is a go-to for me in this neighborhood. I like the menu, I like the vibe. I wish the service was more attentive, but it meets the minimum and is usually very earnest and friendly.

Service was poor. Several people seemed to be helping us so getting one persons attention was difficult. Clearing of the table felt intrusive and awkward. Food was meh. And not inexpensive.

Our waiter Magnus and the hostess were amazing providing great service suggestions on food and drinks 🍷

The bar area was a bit loud for my taste but dining and outdoor space made up for a great time.

We made a last minute reservation for 6 at the The Vine because we had just thoroughly enjoyed a meal at neighboring L’Amico. We thought they were related. The service was extremely slow, even neglectful. The food was so-so. Stand outs were the appetizer sliders and fried chicken bao. Skip the octopus. It was tough and chewy. Quite different from the tender and delicious octopus at L’Amico.

The service is a bit slow but it is one of the best options for the Midtown area - particularly if you are on an expense budget as it is on the pricey side.

I think I might recommend it depends on what the friend is looking for in an evening out.
It was SO LOUD, that my friends and I had to shout to hear each other and we were sitting
in the back not even that close to the music.
Would have been better if we could have sat outside which was my intention but it was
raining.
Staff was lovely and food was good.

The atmosphere at The Vine is great, especially the outdoor seating; however, the food is uninspired and extremely expensive for what it is. My quinoa bowl was completely dry and flavorless.

I love LT and all of his dining establishments... reat selection and wonderful combination of flavors and presentation... reallg enjoy every time i eat his food...

service at Lamico is always much better than the Vine and i font understand why.... had to ask for water refills at least 4-5 times.

your magazine showed special cocktails for the summer... i watned to order the cocomoro and i was told that you dont serve it in the VIne which is strange as the magazine specifically said the VIne.. and when the waiter went to the bar to ask about it, he said they didnt have freash watermelon juice.. we are in the heihgt of summer and cant beleive that LT wldnt have had this especially when he advertized it.

other than these issees, always a pleasure

The service was wonderful. Everyone was very accommodating, when they found out open table had the wrong menu on the website. They fast tracked us into their other restaurant that had the food we hoped for.

Server was very pleasant but the service was just awful. Entrees came out before the appetizers. After entrees (and apps) were cleared it took 20 minutes before our server came by again, and that was only after I waved him down. I do not typically complete these questionnaires, and am not one to complain, but I’d hope it would be constructive for Kimpton to know that this dinner stood out as being the worst serviced I’d experienced in several years of steady restaurant dining.

Second experience at this hotel and both have been disappointing. Management blamed first poor experience on take out orders (our kitchen is too busy with caviar orders) and tonight’s poor experience in the facts that events were happening nearby (MSGhas a concert tonight) and it’s unfortunate. Won’t be returning.

It was good but it was pretty hot inside for 6pm. You would think during a heat wave you'd wanna keep the place cool. Other than that it was fine. Better is i wasn't sweating the whole time indoors lol

The restaurant is fine- we were there on a very warm day (90*+) and the restaurant had the windows / doors open and it was very , very warm. I asked if they could make the place somewhat cooler and they seemed more worried about the cost of cooling than their customers. I will not go back

Pretty hotel restaurant with good service and nice atmosphere. Food was solid, albeit, typically expensive for hotel fare (not sure why hotels have to charge so much more for their food).

Superb grain bowl with the addition of shrimp. Restaurant was eerily empty compared to Lamico. Definitely undeserving due to their menu and food quality.

Love the ambiance. We went with friends on a Saturday morning and was hoping to get brunch, but realized that they only had a lunch menu (brunch menu ends at 11:30 on weekends). It's a nice place to catch up with friends because it's not too loud, like some other brunch places in the city. Lighting was beautiful as the windows are floor to ceiling and it was a beautiful day out. They actually opened one of the windows completely so the indoor space became a half-indoor half-outdoor space. Food was decent - portion size was larger than expected, but taste was not particularly astonishing. Very nice place. Would recommend.
