The calamari and the taste of Tx was salty. Decent food but too salty. The filet was way undercooked. I ordered medium and it came out Rare (purple inside). I had to return it twice and it still wasn’t cooked to liking. The service was pretty bad. The waiter took a long time for everything. He lacked any sort of emotion or apology when I had to return the steak twice. He was nowhere to be found so I had to go and find him to return the steak.
Seeing as how the food was, if the service was excellent or manager came out to apologize, my husband and I would have been able to suck it up and maybe even order dessert. But this wasn’t the case. We couldn’t get out fast enough.
This was our first visit to the restaurant and I don’t think we will be back. It’s a shame because I have had nothing but good experiences at the winery itself.

The food and service was outstanding. We always enjoy the calamari and it was excellent as usual. We tried the 'Amanti del Vino' dinner experience at Messina Hof, which comes with wine, appetizer, entree and dessert. We'll do it again!

I had the filer mignon in a demi glaze. My Husband had the pasta with steak (sorry as I cannot remember the name). Both steaks were so tender and the pasta was heaven. The red wine we had was even that much better as it was paired perfectly. Our waiter was attentive, service was quick, and the ambiance was nice. Right next door is the wine room so that you may just relax and unwind. I highly recommend this gem. You will not be disappointed.

We stopped by for lunch around 2pm before the A&M game. Cold day and the main room facing the vineyard was chilly and sparse. Our waiter was great and recommended several dishes. He also allowed us to try a few sips of different wines before we settled on our glasses - thank you! We stated with the tomato soup and Brie. The soup was a bit thick - like a sauce. the Brie was good but not creamy great. We had the filet and pasta. Filet was very tender and worth the cost. The pasta had a nice sauce and plenty of meatballs. Overall, a nice meal with great service. We will be back when it’s warmer this spring!

Celebrating my sister's birthday was a delight thanks to the superb service, comfortable surroundings and generous, delicious lunch and desserts! Our server noticed immediately that one of our steaks was not cooked to desired doneness and immediately asked to have the plate back. I new steak was cooked to perfection! Two of us enjoyed the fried chicken and waffle with a fun honey butter and warmed syrup...one ate the whole thing; the other enjoyed it for dinner that night! Great Birthday celebration!

Hold a birthday for my Mother in-law; food was great (Grilled Flat Iron Steak and Gorgonzola Steak Pasta) the wine we selected was a good selection to go with the food (Beau, Tribute to Beauty).
Even my children like the grape sparkling juice and their flatbread pizza.
Good place to go and forget about the city for a moment.
Weather was perfect and we ended buying 4 bottles of different type of wine to enjoy at home.

The ambiance is what we really loved about Messina Hof. The restaurant served pretty good food, but the staff seemed spread thin. We waited 10, minutes before someone took our drink order and then another half hour for our appetizer to arrive. I recommend the wine tasting over the restaurant. 6.5/10.

Definitely my favorite restaurant in Bryan/College Station. Of the top four or five restaurants in Bryan/College Station I believe The Vintage House has the best variety of menu choices and the Messina Hof wines are excellent. This was my birthday, so I had the bone-in Ribeye and it was perfection. The wedge salad and cheesecake were also great.
They've done an excellent job adapting to the COVID restrictions and we felt totally safe. You can't go wrong at The Vintage House.

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.

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.
