Aweful! Service was slow and food was cold!
Terrible service- we couldn’t tell who our servers were and when we had some kitchen mistakes but the management staff avoided us and didn’t own the mistakes or try to fix. Will steer people away from here when there are many better options around.
Everything was great! A nice way to celebrate my birthday!
Somewhat a let down. The restaurant is very loud, the bar was active and band was playing but overall, it’s a loud place even on the other side of the bar. Very expensive for the portions and it was just okay. The $89 long bone aged ribeye was mediocre. I really don’t believe it was aged at all. The steak looked and smelled great, but had no taste and was fatty and tough. Really disappointing! Ruth Cris, Moon Fish grill or Johnny’s Hideaway would have been better choices for dinner. Unlikely to dine here in the future.
Great birthday dinner celebration with GREAT FOOD and GREAT service.
The ambiance was great but the food was disappointing. I had the chicken and the breast was over cooked. My wife had the salmon and it was over cooked however the server did offer to replace it and then it was prepared perfectly.
The value was a little expensive and the happy hour was only limited the bar. That was really disappointing.
Service was very sterile; server did not talk about the menu, was very quick. Good wine list, but overpriced (I am in the wine trade), food was better than average, but not worth the price. Ribeye was good and properly cooked, buy a lot of fat (yes, they are the cut with the most marbling, but this one was too fat).
Sub par to the area steakhouses
When we first got there there they seemed busy. We stood there for about 10 minutes and then a man walked over and asked if we had been helped. I said I had a reservation and requested a booth. He told me no Booths were open ,that reservation sat longer then expected. I really had hoped for an intimate dining experience, but I was sat in between two tables with other guest only inches apart from our table. There were other open tables around the restaurant so I am not sure why we were piled on other guest.
Another thing I felt was disappointing is that they had live music, had I been given the option I would have enjoyed a view. We had never been there before so we did not know what to expect, but the host did not ask us if we had been there or really welcome us. First impression was rocky but .....
The food was excellent, and our servers were too!
This is now the 3rd time we have gone to the vines for our wedding anniversary dinner. We are always treated so well and the wine list is amazing. It’s now a tradition for us❤️
The staff was unbelievable attentive! I think we had 4-5 folks serving us and the manager stopped by as well. Everyone seems to enjoy their job and they work well as a team. Great staff with incredible kindness and genuine assistance.
Superb customer service and excellent food! We loved the atmosphere and were treated like VIP’s. Definitely would go back!
Vines is always a great dinner!! We will be back!
It was my wife's birthday and I know she likes steak, so I thought we should try it. We were seated in a very nice corner booth. This is fine dining at its best, with the kind of attention you would want, despite the fact that our two servers were also serving a very large party at another table; and, the restaurant was very busy for a weeknight.
I started out with a Negroni; and, my wife a Perrier Joett Brut, for her birthday. We also split a Wagyu Beef Carpaccio. Our daughter opted for the Caesar salad; but, her friend stuck with bread. Everything was delicious; and, we had plenty of time to relax and enjoy each other's company.
For mains, it was steak: Dry-aged Bone-in Filet de Mignon for me; and, an 8 oz Filet for my daughter; and, fish: Sea Bass for my wife; and, Blacked Salmon for our daughter's friend. The steaks were cooked perfectly medium rare; and, the 42-day dry-aged beef was some of the best dry-aged beef I have ever had! It was well-marbled, intensely "beefy" without the gaminess that sometimes is associated with dry-aging. The fish dishes were spectacular as well. Everyone but me finished their entire meals; but, I took half of it home.
To go with the steaks, my wife and I split a bottle of one of our favorite wines, The Prisoner. We had ordered the Eleanor from Coppola; but, they were out. My daughter and I split Grilled Asparagus, which were tender, tasty, cooked perfectly; and, simply delicious. I also (belatedly) ordered the cognac peppercorn sauce, which was promptly delivered, despite my misstep.
Desserts included Carrot Cake for me; NY Cheesecake (with a Happy Birthday wish) for my wife; and, an unfinished Cappuccino for our daughter (too strong; but, I finished it!)
Service throughout was exceptional. The decor and furnishings are very nice; and, very relaxing. The room does get noisy with large groups; but, having a corner booth insulated us a bit. We had a great time; and, hope to come back soon!
We absolutely loved our experience. Delicious food, great atmosphere, and our waiter Scott was the best. We will be back!
I got to Vines all the time at least one or twice a month. It's always been a very relaxed atmosphere. The last few times its been different, the younger waiters are not as attentive as the mature staff. Chris as always your the best.
Went for a late Valentine's and I must say I was pleased! Food and atmosphere was nice and service was pleasant. Loved the live music! Would definitely come back!
Exceptional venue! Happy Hour, dinner, service and ambience were just wonderful. Prices were good also, considering how high end this restaurant is.
This was our first time at Vines and we will be back. We had a lovely evening and the staff at Vines were on par.
Excellent service, outstanding food
We like it!!!!
Just pure Excellence!!!! Nuff Said!!! The food was a culinary delight a Symphony for the taste buds, and the service was 2nd to none. My fiance and I decided to make The Vines our exclusive go to restaurant for Special Occasions.
Friday night, 8 pm reservation for 2. Restaurant side not too busy lots of parties of 2. Waiters were knowledgeable of the entire menu as he pretty much went over the whole thing which was a bit redundant. Pick a few items and the specials would be better... received out bottle of wine quickly with out bottle of water but a waiter did not return for 10 minutes to take our order and what I could see only had about 6 other people to take care of for a 2 person team. Calamari app came out in 5 minutes not bad and they were delicious, and then after they cleared the app plates my bread service came which should have came after our wine was brought to table. Few minutes after our dinner arrived. Presentations were very nice and appealing. We ordered 2 filets 1 mid well and 1 mid rare, side of Brussels with panthers and the rosted beats. Beats were perfect, the brussel sprouts were really salty, and our steaks were a bit salty as well as not cooked properly. The one was well done and the other was medium tonalmost mid well. Did not let server know as I was already in satisfied and just want to finish and be gone. I know for that place I could have redone my entire meal because I would have because I myself work In the hospitality business on and I drive upscale hotel/restaurant and for the price you pay I expect perfection but we did not have the time for it to be corrected. Been there once before and had no issues
Felt rushed, starters arrived minutes we ordered !
Waiter needed training , did not know how to deal with allergies
He had verbal diahrea , instead of starting off asking if we had any food allergies he went in a 10 minute spiel listing all his favourites
Not the service that one would expect from a high end retaurant
Hands down one of the best meals I have had in a long time! Two thumbs up!!
Food was just mediocre for the high price. We ordered crab claws as an appetizer. They were frozen and and not very flavorful. I always look forward to crab claws when I visit Florida due to their freshness. This was not the case this time. At $80 for 5 crab claws, this was disappointing. Lobster bisque was quite bland. We were brought asparagus instead of the brussel sprouts we ordered. While mistakes are understandable, the mistake was met with only a “that’s on me” from our server when the mistake was brought to his attention. We were eventually brought our brussel sprouts at no extra cost, but no formal apology was made. This experience was not worth the hefty cost.
Great atmosphere. Enjoyed the live music and the meal was excellent. I'm in Orlando only once or twice a year, but I make it a point to visit once I'm in town.
Very pleased with entire staff...delighted with our service at the dinner...Thanks for making the evening a memorable one.
Our waiter was a pompous gentleman named Kevin. Two of three bottles of wine we attempted to order (all in the 150-175 price point) were unavailable. The wait staff assistant, Sora(sp?)was excellent and tried to cover for Kevin’s disinterest. The food was fair at best. Certainly not reflective of the price. Very, very disappointing. Would recommend going somewhere else.
We had a terrific time from start to finish at Vines. Scott, Aaron, and ?? were our team of three who did a great job. They complemented each other well - and brought fun to our dinner. The food was outstanding - and the wine list is super. The jazz band in the bar area was an added treat.
The food and service was exceptional but i do recommend to speak to the guest a little less; we felt like the servers were interrupted us while we were trying to eat and talk. Dont be so fast to take away plates also, you can ask once then the guest will tell you when they are don with their food. Overall, great atmosphere and great service; i would go back again and again.
Had a great night and experience......look forward to coming back in 2019!
Last minute find for a group of 6, excellent food and service.
I was under the impression this was a great choice for a fine dinning experience. The menus choices were perfect, our servers for dining were more then wonderful. The bar area is the first you see , which is usually perfect, Perhaps enjoy a cocktail before dining. Unfortunately only the female bartenders are inappropriately dressed or should I say bare all. You would think the attire for female and male servers should be the same standards. I didn't see the servers in the dining area with their breasts almost completely exposed ...I won't be back again for a business meeting again.
They had several big parties going on. The food was over done and not hot. Won’t be going back
Great decor and staff appearance, seated us on time. Staff very professional and attentive, the food however was very disappointing. We ordered the Grouper and Filet medallions. Each had a corresponding sauce. Béarnaise sauce for the Grouper and Marsala sauce for the Filet. Both dishes were so salty they were nearly unedible. We attributed it mostly to the sauces. We won't go back and can't recommend it to others.
The food was good but incredibly overpriced. There are so many restaurants in the area that you can find a place that is more affordable.
Great food and service
The best restaurant in town in all aspects. It is always a pleasure come back
