Waitress entered wrong entree for one of the people in our party into computer. She brought wrong entree and then reordered correct meal. Mistakes happen but no offer by staff of reducing his meal cost for error. Might be tough to get friends to meet us there again. However general consensus was food was very good.

Food and service was really good.
Noisier than it used to be because of tile floor and open ceiling to steel roof deck.

Food was awesome as we have become to expect. Our server was great! Only disappointment is since the renovations, this restaurant is just way too LOUD, it is hard to have a conversation with the person across from the table. We will be back but we won't go there as much as before because of the noise level.

The renovations have really opened things up. There is a proper bar now, and the dining area is spacious and bright. The staff remains energetic and attentive. The food is delicious, as well. We had a very nice antipasto, and our main courses were cooked nicely, and very flavorful.

If your in the market for a great Italian meal, look no further. Appetizers are scrumptious and well prepared, good to share. “Try the veal it’s the best in the city....”
They butcher their own, Fantastic!
A very nice wine list.
Very good service.
Enjoy it, there are few restaurants like this in that area.

The decor has been updated to a more open and industrial motif which is very nice. The food and service remain top tier. The Vinyard is still the best Italian dining experience in the Valley. I recommend it highly to anyone looking for great Italian cuisine. The prices are reasonable and the staff is always the best.

We really try hard to enjoy this restaurant. The food is really good old-time Italian , but the ambience is lacking. It just isn’t welcoming. You walk in ( if you can’t get in the parking lot, good luck) and no one Is welcoming. The restaurant has been redecorated ( no tablecloths, no personality) and without carpet or drapes it is really noisy. We shout through the meal when it’s busy.

We have come here for years because we love the food, but this last time was just so disappointing. Pretty much all about the food.

We are so glad it reopened. It was our go-to place before and we still love it. Good food, great staff! Feel very comfortable and at home there. We would recommend to everyone but we don't want it to get so popular that we cannot get a table.

Kitchen help obviously needed badly. Two hours seated before we ever received meals. We looked around the Restaurant 1 1/2 hours in and not one single table had dinners in front of them.
Very loud, hard to have a conversation.
Food was good once we received it, paid and bolted immediately, after finding our server and asking for bill. This used to be one of our favorite places to go.

Can’t express how happy we are to have this favorite back! Missed the veal tremendously and the gravy outstanding. Have always loved the saltimbocca and sorrentino...everything in the dining room has an updated look, modern and clean lines. (We loved the original though. Including the clarinet and accordion) One thing has not changed; the portions; quality and taste consistent with the last 30 years of dining experiences at the Vineyard. DiMatteo family soooo glad to have you back!

Been the the previous Vineyard many many times over the years. Newly reopened Vineyard has same menu and excellent food. I do miss the ambiance of before. The new decor is not as warm (it’s a little industrial), the lights are brighter, and the noise level is much higher. Not quite as quiet and relaxing as it used to be. Will go back for the amazing food and service.

What’s not to say, food is always spectacular. I went with the special, crab/lobster ravioli. It was rich and delicious. Other plates were chicken piccata, cheese ravioli and rigatoni. All were wonderful. Staff is always fun and polite. Just a wonderful experience.

We had so enjoyed our dinner at the Vineyard in January for my husband's birthday that we jumped at the chance to go back with friends this week. We all had a great time. The other couple enjoyed their veal parmigiana dinners and we couldn't resist the chicken saltimbocca again and were not disappointed.
The portions were generous and we both had leftovers to enjoy the next day.
Can't wait to come back!

Food was amazing. Decor was stark and lighting was really bright. I’d love to see a more cozy, old world Italian, neighborhood look. Table cloths might help with the noise.
