The staff that took care of us was knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and charismatic. We had such a wonderful time that I am counting down the moments until we can dine in again!

The waitress seemed to not want to be there, my food came out before my appetizer so I had to cancel my order for the appetizer and both my and my husband’s orders were wrong. This was our 2nd time going. The first time was back in December 2017 for happy hour and we had a much better experience at that time which is why we thought dining in would also be good, but based on this experience I wouldn’t go again. They’re too expensive for all the mishaps we had with no apology or anything. The best part was the live jazz

This was our 4th trip to this restaurant. As always the food and service were great. My only minor complaint would be that the jazz band that started playing in the evening was not particularly good. The singer was mediocre. They've had some good bands in the past.
Aside from that it was a great evening.

The entire experience was great. The steak was so tender that i did not need the knife. My wife raved about the seafood dish. The salads were refreshing
The dessert made a lasting impression and the drinks were well made. Great father's Father's Day menu.

The ambience and appetizers were great. Disappointed in the entree. I ordered the twin filets and they were served on a bed of very mushy risotto. The risotto was horrendous, like a glob of gel, and dried out the steak which was supposed to have been served with an au poivre sauce but came without. A shame because the evening started out so well. If going order something else and steer clear of any dish that has risotto in it!

Small steakhouse with an overpriced wine selection. Food was pleasant but overpriced for the flavors and portions. I would have preferred to go to a nearby steakhouse on Disney property for these prices. Will not be returning.

The ambiance was fine. Some of food was excellent- calamari, soup and scallops were terrific. Unfortunately the steak was average , and the service had multiple gaps where we sat unattended for up to 15 minutes and long gaps in between food being served.

Wouldn’t allow us to order from bar menu because we were in restaurant. It seemed silly given that there were only 10 people in the entire restaurant/bar-it was a very slow Sunday night. Wait staff was very attentive and apologized for the House rules

Unfortunately we only serve our more casual bar fare in the bar, lounge, and patio as we have for the last 15 years and reserve our dining room for more formal service. We sincerely hope you decide to return and enjoy our bar menu in our lounge/bar/patio area where we serve happy hour 4-7 daily!

I have been to Vines several times and have always had a great experience. This time I did not. The service was incredibly slow, my drink order was wrong, items that were included with the meal were not brought out and our server was not especially pleasant. The food was excellent but the overall experience was disappointing.

This was not my first visit to vines I’ve done happy hour a few times and celebrated my birthday there before and always had a great time. Unfortunately this time(Mother’s Day) was my worst experience there. We were a party of 4 got there about 12:30pm and was there for almost 3hrs. Our waiter was very unpleasant acted like he didn’t want to serve us felt like we were a bother to him whenever he came around which wasn’t often. It was a Mother’s Day prefixed menu so the food was ok not great compared to my other visit. Maybe our waiter was just having a bad day or maybe he was just overwhelmed but it made for a not so pleasant visit this time around. I wouldn’t say not to visit vines because I’ve had some great visits this was just not one of them

Vines has always been one of our favorite places to go for a special occasion however the last two times we have gone. It seems to have lost its way food wise. The food was sub par at best. The steak lacked flavor, the risotto was just ok. The sea bass turned out ok if not a little fishing tasking and lacking that great butter flavor, as if the fish had been frozen and not fresh. The service was the one bright spot, great service and good bar cocktails. It has a great ambience, great jazz music but who ever is running their kitchen has lost their passion for cooking great food😔😔 for the price of 200 bucks for two people you expect a lot more. Eddie V’s and capital Grille deliver a much better quality steak and considering there a chain very disappointing😔

I went to find a venue with live music. Thursday nights they have a very talented jazz group playing tasteful genres of jazz. The setting at the bar was perfect and the music not too loud. Combined with quality food and service, it was a great evening.

They may have had an off evening. Grilled octopus was a little fishey. My ribeye seemed more like a strip with little to no marbeling and not a lot of taste. Could have grilled a better steak at home. The weirdest thing was that we were the only table in the dining room from 6:15 through 7:30.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Brett and Jessie were our servers and their attention to detail was truly amazing! It was all the little things they noticed that absolutely set them apart. The food was fabulous- try the grilled octopus, the scallops with squid ink grits and the rib eye!!
We had the booth just near the bar so it was a bit loud at times as the bar patrons were having a great time. The live Jazz on Wednesday evening was delightful!

The menu definitely is smaller then the last time we went there. The food was mediocre. Our appetizers were ok however one of the people in our party had to send their steak back because it came out cold. The steak then came back out cold again for the second time. In addition one of the people in our party ordered a wedge salad with NO BLEU CHEESE. The salad came out with no bleu cheese crumbles but with bleu cheese dressing. This was a serious problem because this individual had a blue cheese allergy. The waiter was awful and the manager was not any better. Overall this was a terrible experience which is disappointing as we have been here a few years ago and it was great.
