Incredible place to eat and enjoy their own made Texas wine! Amazing views and superb service from Carly. Definitely worth a visit to Bryan/College Station arra. Port grapes grown on premises and is amazing!

I took my wife here for our anniversary. Our overall experience was excellent. Making reservations was recommended and they were easy to make. Host staff was very friendly and Travis (our waiter) was super knowledgeable and helpful with our selections. We will definitely keep coming back and highly recommend you give it a try.

The only thing I would have to negative to say is that the menu was thinned out and the item I came for was not on the menu tonight. Otherwise, everything was great!

This is usually one of my favorite places, but they missed a little tad on our last visit. I tried a new appetizer, the calamari, which my husband enjoyed, but I should have stuck with the panko crusted cheese. I ordered the Gorgonzola stuffed chicken, which was hot, crispy, and fantastic as always, but the potatoes served with it were so cold (and old?) that they were almost hard, flaky even. I mentioned that to the waitress and she offered to bring me more, but who would want to let the chicken get cold while waiting for some warmer potatoes? The pasta dish my husband ordered "was forgettable" and he wishes he would have gotten the steak he usually gets. So, not a bad night there, just not as awesome as we are used to.

Service was a bit slow tonight. Only one waitperson for the room. In fairness, there were not nearly as many tables due to social distancing.

From start to finish The Vintage House was amazing! Our server, Jacob was attentive, helpful and friendly. The food was hot and fresh and very delicious. It was my best friends birthday so they brought a lovely Sunday and even brought extra for the other March birthday! I recommend the restaurant whole heartedly! Well with it!

My husband and I went there on a Friday and Saturday evening. We wanted quality time as a couple and enjoy a romantic evening. We were not disappointed! Enjoyed every minute of it. Food was very good, would not change anything. Service was absolutely spectacular and we have no complaints. We definitely will be returning.

We had lunch following the 11:30 tour. I am glad we made reservations as it got busy quickly and there were a number of large parties. I imagine reservations are even more essential when it is later in spring,’summer, and during the fall.

The service was personal and attentive, and the food was excellent. The vines were still dormant when we were there, but I imagine it’s quite a lovely view when the vines are growing and the grapes are being harvested.

Love everything about Messina Hof except the seasoned oil used for dipping the bread. Too many "chili flakes" (?) overpowering the other seasonings. Service was exceptional. A bit expensive for us but the $25. voucher helps ease the pain!

We might have been the loudest table in the restaurant and for that we are sorry! But we very much enjoyed Jacob’s service, he got everything to us in a timely manor and everything was perfect! It was the great way to celebrate a birthday and the end of a long work week!

Food lacked flavor and was not worth the expensive price tag. Server was inappropriate and sometimes crass with his comments and suggestions. He also spent so much time trying to up sell, as well as convince us to go to a drag show in Bryan.

We had good reviews on this restaurant and was looking forward to trying it. The atmosphere and service was very nice but the food was not good. My husband had fish and it was so dry that he had to force himself to eat it. I had scampi and it was good but not very flavorful. We decided not to complain, but we will not return.

I loved it! First time going in a very long time. There was a mistake with the reservation system and host team could not find my reservation but they quickly seated us anyway which was very nice. We got seated and our favorite server and friend, Bryan, took great care of us. The food was outstanding. I will try to talk my friends into going there for brunch some time. I would love to see croque monsieur on the menu someday! No one in town makes that. Sweet Paris has a croque monsieur crepe but it’s not the same. Also, croque madam is one of my favorite brunch plates! I’d also say it was very quiet during dinner which was kinda weird to me. I like a little energy in the atmosphere personally but it did not affect my experience in any negative way.

Went there for Valentine's Day dinner. Fixed price menu had a good selection of meal choices. We both had the ribeye that was excellent and cooked just as requested. We were both impressed with the extensive wine list. Service was attentive and friendly. Our only criticism is that the meal presentation and serving seemed a little rushed, not quite the leisurely, romantic meal I had anticipated.

Stayed at the winery overnight went to dinner at the vintage house. Had a very good waiter. Wine as always was also very good, but the food was not as I remembered. Had a table side Caesar salad witch was different but good. Both main courses came out lukewarm at best and were not very good. Desert was good, would have liked a decaf coffee option. Overall a bit disappointed with dinner.
