    This was our first visit. Food was outstanding. We both had the filet with broccolini and mashed potatoes. Also had the pear almond cake for dessert. Our server was very attentive. Atmosphere was very nice. Will definitely come back.

    Every bit of our experience was top notch, from visits from both of the owners to every single thing that we ordered. The mushroom crostada was flakey and delicious, the scallops were perfectly cooked and the risotto was excellent, and the apple crumble was phenomenal, especially the cinnamon toast ice cream that I could eat for days.

    I went out with a friend to celebrate birthdays. The food was so amazing, and the service was spectacular. I particularly liked that the owners came around to make sure everything was as it should be. Their story is as interesting as the history of this historic venue.

    Service was slow and portions small. Because service was so slow we ended up being there over 2 hours; finally after getting and signing the bill we were asked to leave so someone else could have the table. If they would have waited a few minutes longer, we would have been gone anyway. Left with a bad taste in our mouths, so to speak. Cannot recommend anymore to friends and family.

    Arrived right on our reservation time and was immediately seated. Due to being one server short it took awhile to get menus and information on the specials. We ordered libations, that were priced higher than other eateries that we frequent, but they were promptly delivered. Entrees were outstanding in all respects and the pricing was well in line with competing establishments. We’ve been to Wandering Vine a few times, the menu is loaded with delicious choices… we will be back on a regular basis.

    Service was personal and excellent, the restaurant was quiet enough to carry on an easy conversation, I asked for the bartender to make an autumnal martini and got an excellent drink! Most importantly, the food was outstanding...you will not go wrong with the hot carmelized onion dip app or the chicken pot pie!

    Outstanding experience. The staff were incredibly accommodating, the food was great, and the atmosphere was pretty amazing. We had a group of 7 including accommodations needed for a vegan diet, a gluten free diet, and a mobility device. From the server to the chef to the owner it was a great experience celebrating my mom's birthday!

    Our first time to dine here and it won't be our last. Pictures don't do this place justice. The interior of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. Our service was first rate and both owners came and talked to us at length about their wonderful culinary and wine experiences. We had the pot pie and the pork chop as entrees and both were delicious with interesting takes on both concepts. And try the apple crisp with cinnamon ice cream for dessert it was to die for. There's a very nice wine selection and great mixologists at the bar so there's nothing not to love here so come enjoy the experience!

    This was not my first visit and I have loved each and every visit. However, I had 3 other guests who had not been before. They were blown away and planning on coming back again at the holidays! Our server was fairly new, but energetic and positive attitude. Busted his tail serving our table of 5.

    Beautiful building, wonderful atmosphere. Wine flights are available. Got the bread service, and the focaccia bread melts in your mouth. Delicious! Entrees were excellent. A bit disappointed in the dessert we ordered, Pear Upside-Down Almond Cake. The cake was mushy, couldn't taste any almond flavor because it was overpowered by cinnamon, and the sauce was sour. There was a musician providing entertainment. He played guitar and harmonica very well, but his singing was cringeworthy. However, I absolutely recommend eating here. I've been twice now and have been happy with my meal and the service both times. Try the Castle Burger for lunch! Yum!

    My fiancé and I came to the Wandering Vine for his 33rd birthday. Not only were we greeting by the owner(wife) we were walked to our table by her as well. The service was outstanding the food was remarkable. The best part for us was the architect. From the display of the windows to the decor around the establishment. Absolutely amazing

    What service we had was 5 starts but WV, like all restaurants are struggling with a balance of staff and business. The bartender had other responsibilities so the drinks came slowly but once they arrived, they were worth the wait. Carla, the owner even came by our table to greet us which was lovely. I highly recommend Wandering Vine and know we will definitely return!
