Award Winning Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass
Red Shrimp Risotto, Asparagus, Basil-Citrus Beurre Blanc
8 oz., Demi-Glace
Walking in the door, reservation was exactly on time, service was excellent . Our server Marcalino was very attentive and helpful
We had an appetizer of the octopus and it was the best I've had.
The entrée, Chilean Sea Bass was very well cooked and tasted devine,the sauce used was very tasty, personally I could have used a little more, but no complaints.We will absolutely be back.
This is the second time we’ve been to Vines Grill and Wine Bar and it’s been excellent both times! The ambiance is nice. The servers are very knowledgeable. They have an excellent wine list with rare grapes too! All of the food was excellent. The octopus appetizer was one of the best apps I’ve ever had. The mussels were delicious as well. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the sauces that you can get in the side were very good as well. This is my new favorite local restaurant!
Great environment and atmosphere. The food was awesome.
Great place! Exceptional service! Food was incredible.
We love vines!
Beautiful and cool atmosphere. The live music was excellent, good food and great service.
The lack of communication between the staff and customers is awful. The general manager fails to understand the concept of basic customer service. The only pleasant person there was the valet.
Might be the best meal I've had in Orlando ever and we come here every year
The food was delicious and the amount provided was more than adequate. The service provided by our attendant was great. The kitchen was slower than I am normally accustomed to at this "quality" of restaurant. It was Mother's Day and they had "above" normal attendance is they reason why I hope. Overall I would recommend this establishment for patronage.
Mother’s Day lunch was perfect! Food & service were great!
Great food and Service!
Very expensive place to go to. Food and service were average
Great food, atmosphere, and service.
Kevin and his assistant did a terrific job I’m delivering exceptional service. He knows what medium plus plus plus means!
Had an amazing experience at Vines, no complaints at all
Great ambiance, good efficient service, excellent food. Noise level was too high, it made it difficult to have a conversation while dining. Mask wearing compliance could have been better, especially around the bar.
Wonderful restaurant! Music and great food. Friday night is not busy at all. So it made it more intimate for our date. For appetizers we had the lamb meatballs. It was okay, the tomato medley that accompanied it made the dish. The lamb meatballs had an strong iron or mineral-like taste to it. Nothing like the lamb chops entree we had on our last visit which was delicious. This time, I had a Caesar salad & the 8oz filet mignon (medium-well) and my guy had the Bell & Evans roasted chicken. For an additional side we ordered the lobster Mac and cheese. All dishes were delicious and cooked perfectly. I would recommend the purple orchid to drink. It’s just delightful.
We’ve visited Vines on a number of occasions. For the most part enjoyable but last night was just off and it’s all because service and value. There are a lot of choices in the area and Vines has taken over as most expensive yet I’d say our experiences at Eddie V’s or Ocean Prime or Chatham’s were better and cost about the same or most often, less.
In all the food was very good. Drinks were also pretty good but service ruined. We’ve worked with this waiter before and noticed his obvious recommendations for only the most expensive items in the menu but the tactics this time were simply annoying and disappointing. Upsell, Upsell, and more Upsell. He didn’t stop there, he pushed enough appetizers to feed an army. Upon further review of the receipt we see he charged us for a meal we did not have, charged us the same price for sides as he did for the same meal. There were so many issues with this service we are convinced this is NOT a mistake but done deliberately to boost checks and their self imposed 20% tip.
Last month we visited but decided to come back for another try. Not again
3 Days later, reviews, messages yet no call.
Over all is was good. Not great !!! The service was very good.
Birthday Dinner - great experience- great food
Great food and amazing service
What a great meal. Great drinks. Good variety of food.
1st night of vacation dinner, the restaurant was very nice inside with live music. The food was really good, everything we had was very good considering the high price. Well worth it!
Such loud and rowdy people on the bar area ruined our dinner. What a waste of $150.
This restaurant needs to decide if it wants to be an upscale steakhouse or a low life Karoke bar. Sunday night at 6pm and 2 other disappointed customers like us. And here's the best part... I was almost assaulted in the bathroom by a drunk Karoke patron!
I start with that I’ve been eating at The Vines since 2011. And the food and staff and ambiance were consistently above expectations.
Waiter was worst I EVER had. His excuses for his inability to meet MINIMUM expectations were:
** “I’m working with a new guy”
- so we asked the 2nd waiter (who I personally had some good experiences with) and he was surprised by the question and said he has been a lead and secondary waiter there since 2008... this was lie #1 from our lead waiter
**”The restaurant is under staffed” not enough waiters
- we ate there the night before and had a great experience and meal... and we saw at least 10 waiters all working well together and checking on both customer and food... this was lie #2
** “It’s been chaotic, so there’s been confusion”
- our lead waiter and another lead waiter got into an argument where the other lead waiter said “worry about you own tables - do not bother my customers as I taking care of them”.... that was lie #3
** I could go on about our waiter going to tables with single women and parking himself to have long conversations with them... that the 4 tables he serviced all spoke to the manager separately about the lack of service - like no forks at place settings... not getting drinks... forgetting simple things like bread... returning to check on quality of food... etc
** now for the food ...
- my meal the Vines (Seafood) Cucchino and was a big bowl of salt... a blood pressure bomb... Not to mention it took our waiter 10 mins to get an unopened/untracked king crab claw opened for me to eat it.
- wife’s Sea Bass was so salty that she has to remove the charred side of the serving to remove the strong salt flavor. Note: we had this the night before - and it was cooked perfectly.
- the risotto that came with my wife’s Chilean Sea Bass was not risotto rice... it was undercooked soupy long grain rice
So much more to say but character limited... at end We spoke to Mgr. Who missed the point as waiter contd to “serve”
It was a fine restaurant. The good was fine. Not anything outstanding. I thought it was over priced for the quality. The scallops were overly salty and the salmon was over cooked. They did not ask how we wanted it cooked. We enjoyed the key lime pie.
For the price, I expected better food. I ordered the steak, and it was about the same quality as outback except 5x the price. They also have a lot of tables crammed in there, it was very tight. The server was good though!
I really enjoyed the ambiance. Waiter very attentive
We came here for our wedding anniversary. We sat at the bar before our reservation and she was great. When we were seated we asked if we could speak to the somm the server left and told us he was busy so no. So we were asking for some different wines and kept being told no. I ended up ordering a glass of
Rose and we were going to keep
Looking through the wine list. The server took the wine list
Once I ordered a glass of
Rose. We got
And I got the chicken which was way over cooked and just horrible. It was 20 minutes before anyone came
Over and all they did was say I guess you need a box and walked away. They brought our check and never asked us if we wanted anything. It was a bad experience and I would not
Was a great meal and great service from Felix
It was a wonderful dining and music experience.
Thanks, LeeLee! We are glad you enjoyed your experience. Hope to see you again in the future!
Great food and restaurant, service not quite as good as previous visits.
Had to wait with reservation about 40mins...
This place does not follow any social distancing rules. We were seated in a small room. There were four tables that sat 4 people and one table that seated was reserved for 12 people. Our chairs were right next to the other tables chairs. When either table had to get up they had to squeeze between the chairs. We were very uncomfortable with that. Our server was just par because he was to concerned with waiting on the larger party. Our food was very good but not sure I would go back with the table settings they have
Food was great and the band was not my style but the service was excellent.
Thanks for the review, Flora. We are glad you enjoyed your experience here at Vines. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again in the future!
We have been on a trip in orlando for some time and this is the best restuarant we have found. They have a chef and the food is excellent. The server was great and resturant is very clean and friendly
Hi Woody! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience here. We hope you'll keep coming back to visit! We appreciate you and your business.
Just love the place, already 2 times there and i will definitely be back.
Birthday dinner! Amazing food and great ambiance
Thanks so much for the five star review! We are happy you enjoyed your birthday here at Vines. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers.
Fantastic dinner - best mussels we have had outside of France. My wife and I shared the Sea Bass and steak and it made a fantastic surf and turf. Waiters are top notch. It can get a little noisy in the dining room but worth it.
Thanks so much for the kind words, Tom! What a compliment! We are so glad you enjoyed everything here at Vines. We appreciate your support and hope to see you again in the future!
