The parking was great behind the restaurant. The staff was great, very professional, friendly and smiling. Our server was fun, made great recommendation, she even told us she does not lie about food and drinks ever. She was great checking on us periodically but not hovering. The food was great, we had a nice pace with appetizer, to salad to main course. The portions were nice sized, the food was awesome, I had the veal parm and it was pounded and so tender, my friend had the chicken saltimbocca which she said was great also. The atmosphere was nice, very relaxed no one was loud or crazy and there were five tables in the downstairs area we were and four table upstairs. I felt very safe and that all COVID precautions were followed at all times. It was nice to get out, have great food, great service, and a great time. Kudos to the Vinyard!

Service was extremely slow. Got the lobster tail and they use a cheap warm water tail. Little neck clams and mussels are frozen and not fresh. Asked for oil to dip bread in and was told they would have to charge us for that. Asked to have pasta with olive oil and garlic and said we would have to order a side order of pasta to do that for about $8. Owner argued with us about the wait time. Took 35m for our dishes to come out.

Food was great. Authentic Italian. Service was great, atmosphere great also. Had to drive through a pretty sketchy neighborhood, but well worth it. I'll be back for sure. Chicken marsala was really good. Stuffed shells were excellent as well. Go here...you won't regret it.

Due to the pandemic I was finally able to take my significant other out tI dinner and seen the place so I decided to give it a shot. We show up to the place and was not impress on looks everything seem outdated. The menu was a piece of paper folded. We waited quite a while to even order our food mind you there was about maybe 1 or 2 others tables there besides us. Anyways we ordered our food and let me tell you I was not impressed at all with food we ordered. I ordered the zuppa di mare and majority of my food had no taste in flavor whatsoever I didn’t even finish it and I always eat all of my food and my significant other ordered the flounder and it tasted like cardboard and mushy not what she was expecting. Very disappointed with our dinner date let alone what we got for the price we paid but I won’t be coming back that’s for sure. Don’t go by the reviews like I did and if you want to try the food order out and see for yourself before wasting your time.

The Vineyard as always was an excellent evening. The veal Parmesan is amazing. Unfortunately it is so great that we cannot order anything else. We had a lovely evening with friends, our meal was relaxed, the timing was perfect, and the meal all expectations. Our favorite restaurant in Bethlehem.

This place was awesome. Food portions were large and the taste was excellent. Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. Food came out in a timely manner. The only complain is parking and it was a bit cold inside. We were very far from the entrance but for some reason it was a bit chilly. However the food was hot and that kept me warm while I ate lol. As for the parking , there isn’t much but there is ample street parking. Definitely check this place out if you are ever in Bethlehem.

We enjoyed our visit, there was a large group behind us which was a bit noisy, other than that we really loved it. I recommend their veal saltimbocca it was delicious. Their pasta is wonderful, and we shared a dessert which was orange cake with a cream cheese icing, absolutely fabulous!

We visit the Vineyard on an occasional basis. If you love Italian food this is the place to go. Reminds us of our visits to Italy. The food is all freshly prepared by the owner chef. I have my favorites but mostly all the dished are well prepared. I love the Veal Pizziola which has capers, olives and a hint of cherry peppers. Delicious... Clams Casino are also a favorite appetizer for me. The menu is large with many traditional selections. House side salad comes with the dinner meal. This is one of the local Italian restaurants that serves Tartufo for dessert. Ball of vanilla and chocolate ice cream with a cherry center dipped in a hard chocolate coating. Love it...Atmosphere is a bit spartan but clean. Service is very good. There is a room for larger parties. Worth a visit.
