Some of the food was spectacular, but service was sloppy and incomplete, disappointing since there were only six people in the restaurant. Noise from the bar was unpleasant.

Food was good however the restaurant is super noisy. Service was inconsistent and poorly coordinated. Two servers would show up within minutes of each other then no one. Never asked about dessert and had to serve for a server to pay.

The food here is amazing and the service is great; attentive but not overbearing. My only comment is that they play live music, which can be overwhelming in the main dining area. Other than that I highly recommend it!

They easily handled our group of 17 dinners in their semi-private room. Food was unbelievably good. I highly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass.

We were celebrating our marriage with our family who came from abroad. We were super excited to dine at Vines since it has great reviews for this special occasion.
When we arrived we were surprised with the quantity of people greeting our table. I thought, “The service will be amazing”! But I was wrong...
The server introduced himself and asked If we wanted bottle water for the table, they ordered sparkling and I asked for still water... Which I had to ask also for the helper and for the food runner who finally served me.
My friend asked for a wine for the table so we could celebrate, the server brought the wine and started pouring it for all guests, he filled up over half of the glass for each person and of course the bottle wasn’t enough for the table, including for my friend’s who ordered the bottle.. Of course he said he was going to bring another bottle. So he could sell more... I’m a restaurant owner and also a costumer. This is very unprofessional, specially in a hi-end restaurant where everyone who understands a little bit of wines knows that you can never fill up glasses of wine, specially for a big table leaving the person who ordered without his glass.
When we dine in at a high-end restaurant we expect hi-end service..
The server never came back to check If we wanted more water, even the sparkling bottle... He only cared about the wine and of course when we said we were fine with the other bottle he didn’t came back to serve us the remaining wine in the bottle.. Only when we were done to see If we wanted dessert... Awful!!!
The server helper and food runner were great! Serve the table and gave us much more attention than the $$erver.
Food was great and ambience too! If wasn’t for the server we would give 5 stars. But he was terrible!
After all of that he brought us the check with a 20% tip already included... That made me really mad! That’s why he doen’t made any effort to be nice and serve the table, just to sell. His tip was garanteed anyway. Shame!

Vines is a true 'fine dining' experience. The venue is very elegant, there is subdued live jazz music, the service is very good, but all that is really secondary to the food. The food is excellent. The salads are fresh, the entrees are very well prepared, and the menu has something for everyone.

The table staff member repeatedly upcharged our party and added extra items to our bill, including a bottle of wine and a automatic 20% gratuity for a party of 5.

Very dishonest practices by the waiter ruined an otherwise great go to spot we’ve gone to for business meals.

Foie gras was exceptional. Steaks were very good. Wine list was a little on the pricey side for the midrange wines. Overall very good experience.

One of the most enjoyable dinner we've had in the hole trip. Food was amazing, extensive wine list, good music, but prepare to spent some $$$. The price is salty, but worth it.

It was a poor experience , our waiter treated us poorly. We sat at a table , we had planned on having drinks and appetizers, we had planned on compensating for taking his table. One of our group asked for additional bread , the staff was like it is $15. I waited over an hour to get my water glass refilled.

Best lamb chops with Demi glaze I have ever had at a restaurant. My husband enjoyed his braised short rib.
We started out rough, the wine list looked great but our first choice was not available after waiter tried to find in cellar. Second choice, not available. Third choice, not available. Waiter knew we were not happy so brought out two bottles he thought we may like. We chose the Tigra, which we haven’t tried before, it was delicious with our meals. We will return when back in the area.

Hi Maria, Thank you for your review. The braised short rib is new to the menu and we are delighted our guests have been enjoying it. I apologize we did not have the wines you selected. I am happy to hear your server was able to select a wine you liked. We are very happy to hear you will be visiting us again!

The Vines is some place we visit every time we come to Orlando and typically everything is great. This time my wife’s steak was dry. They were very apologetic and offered to replace it but we said no, so instead they gave us free desert. We will keep going. I hope it was just a one time thing.

They didn’t have the bottle of wine we wanted - despite it being on the menu - and tried to “up-sell” us a much more expensive bottle. The sommelier didn’t have any knowledge of a pasis before-dinner drink. We ended up leaving without dining. Overall, it was pretending I be something it wasn’t.

I was celebrating a friends birthday. Made a reservation at 8 pm. When I walked in the receptionist confirmed I had a reservation however she asked if I could come back because there was a large number of people she needed to seat from a convention that had NO reservations. When I questioned her she said sir can you please come back in 25 minutes. Then I came back in 15 and she said sir I’m so sorry but I need more time to get myself organised ... can I buy you a drink while you wait. I took my friend and we went off to the side and waited another 30 minutes. I did not bother with a drink as it was too busy. I went back to her again and she said I’m ready for you in a few minutes . We sat at 8:50 pm. We had a server come up to us asking us our order when we just sat down and what drink we wanted with no cocktail menu. The food arrived 90 minutes after we placed our order. We had two servers that asked us the same question all night and finished at 11:45 PM.
My 8 pm reservation was almost a 4 hour dining experience . And not even once did I receive an apology for bad service or waiting patiently. And this was meant to be a special night for my best friend. This was a huge disappointment . I travel all over the world and have never had such a horrible experience.

Ordered the Wagyu beef. Thoroughly disappointed. Steak came out looking nice but was cold. Was sent back when it came out was more medium than medium rare and still cold, pad of butter served over steak totally cold. Overall disappointed. At that point didn’t send it back, ate some of it but certainly not worth 52 dollars. My previous experiences were great this one not so much. It will be a while before I return.

I love Vines! I don't live nearby but when friends are in town, this is my go-to restaurant. The food is outstanding, there is usually live music and they don't rush you. I have plenty of time to hang out and catch up with friends.
