This is the second visit for us to The Vine and our experience this time was as outstanding as the last time. The staff is attentive and friendly and the chef is truly dedicated to producing a fine meal, with strict attention to all the details of preparation and presentation of each course. We elected to have the wine pairings with the 3 courses and found that the selected wines went very well with the meal. We certainly will plan on returning and have already recommended The Vine to several of our friends. Good job!

I loved everything about this! I should have tried this much earlier and I am glad I have been. I will be very vocal about people getting out here to eat. We had the tasting menu and were very pleased with the choices, size of portion and preparation. The Wagyu Flank Steak was, to me, completely unexpected in the preparation quality. Well done, the people who were working were fantastic, or server was Missy. Engaging and wonderful people in a beautiful setting. Thank you.

My wife and I went to the Vine for Valentines day. As always the food was outstanding as was the service. We have been here before and are always impressed by the food, service and the setting of the property. This is a must go to at least once and a great place to go for an outstanding meal any time,

We had a fantastic experience for our 28th Anniversary on 9/29/2018. Every course was delicious and the wine parings brought the meal to another level! It is worth the drive from Walla Walla to experience this great meal.
My only concern was the drive up the dirt/gravel road and then no signage for the restaurant. The building looks like a private home and you don't see the name until you get to the front door.
Ladies, don't wear expensive heels, the "driveway" is very rocky. Even with the long dusty drive, I would go back in a minute for this excellent meal!

The food was excellent.

I ordered a steak and it was prepared exactly the way I wanted it to be. The chef had some courses that were novel, but good. Cheddar cheese mousse served in a tiny ice cream cone!

I'd go again and recommend it highly.

Was an absolutely grand dinner date. Food and service superb, stunning view and just private enough to be easy to serve yet very private if desired. This place is not inexpensive however when you pay for that kind of meal, it is very satisfying when it lives up to the price.

Felt like it was coming from some top chef cooking show from the TV onto my plate. The service was exceptional. Cameo Heights is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous views as well.

Innovative, artistically arranged courses served by the chef personally! (A chef's descriptions enhance the enjoyment of the meal). Great for foodies. Compares favorably with fine restaurants I have sampled in Las Vegas and New York. My advice: deliberately focus on the sublime flavor combinations, and it will be worth the money! Secluded, romantic location a mile off the highway. Highly recommend.

We were warmly greeted at this amazing restaurant with a wonderful chef and staff. We were seated on the balcony overlooking the bed-and-breakfast court yard and pool with the valley view beyond. Just beautiful for sunset and a full moon rising. Farm to table fresh ingredients, the whole crew made us feel so special for my birthday dinner which was a seven course wine paired dinner. Truly a delightful treat. And worth the drive out. I would highly recommend The Vine @ Cameo Heights Mansion.

We had such an enjoyable meal in this lovely place. The chef, Nathan, is very talented, and we loved that he personally brought the food to the table. Sitting outside as the sun went down was quite special. The food is very good. We took the a la carte option, which is the same food choice as the Tasting menu. We weren’t hungry enough for all the courses, which is of great value price wise. If we are ever back in Walla Walla we would definitely eat here again, and we would stay at the Inn, which looked great.

We dined on a beautiful evening on the outside patio with a wonderful view. Food was spectacular and the server was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Only down side was the noise and competing music from the pool area, which detracted a bit from the ambiance. It would have been fine if our reservation had been a little later in the evening. Overall, a wonderful experience that we would highly recommend.
