    This was our first visit and we were impressed. The duck confit empanadas were delicious, but our favorite was the breaded goat cheese cakes. They have a large selection of south american wines. On the recommendation of our server we had the Tikal Patriota Malbec. It was very smooth, rich, and fruity. It would be very easy to drink more of this wine, but there are many others to try. Definitely worth more visits.

    What a quaint and beautiful little restauarant perfect for quiet gatherings of friends or couples. Our food was delicious and wine selection very interesting. The service we received was attentive and informative. Our server was very interested in ensuring we had a good experience and was eager to have us try different wines. The space is relaxing, low lit, and comfortable. I will definitely be back.

    Met a friend for wine and tapas on a tuesday night and it was busy. I made a reservation, just in case. We each had a wine flight, which was fun. There were a lot to choose from. When they are served, they give you a paper identifying each wine, some tasting notes, and a space for your thoughts. Very helpful. Service was tag-team, which got everything out, and was fine. Ordered the cheese plate, some olives, and a portabella mushroom appetizer. All tasty. Will definitely be back.

    First time and a fabulous place for a first date. Service and atmosphere was definitely top notch. Was confused a bit, we made reservations for but when we first got there we were told to have a seat anywhere we like. Also, notice some tables with reserved placards. So was a little confused. One recommendation, the glass of wine choices that were on special seemed to be overpriced. I don't mind paying for a good glass of wine but I felt like $18 for a glass of wine that was on a special mention when we first got there was a little too much. Finally, would definitely be visiting again. Wonderful place and pretty good food! :)

A great selection of wines, small plates that are delicious, and service that is top notch. We love this place! Highly recommend for a night out, date night, girls night out, etc. Don't miss out.

    One of my favorite go-to's in North Raleigh, great selection of tapas both small and large plates. Even if you are finicky, you'll find something tasty on the menu! Surprisingly wonderful wine selection as well - and if you aren't quite sure what to order, you'll always get help from the owner; he's a wonderful sommelier with excellent recommendations. :)

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Vinos Finos! This is our first time visiting Raleigh an we were looking for a wine bar type restaurant! Everything sounded delicious but we settled on bacon wrapped dates, a grilled romaine steak salad and a bacon wrapped filet mignon! The prices were very reasonable, the service was attentive and friendly and we would definitely go back!

    Upon arriival the hostess promptly pointed us to our table. Several minutes later the waitress finally came by for our drink order. We ordered 3 small plates and each a flight of wines. The food came out piece by piece and we promptly ate everything. The food was very well prepared and plated. Since we enjoyed it we were looking forward to ordering more, however trying to find our waitress to even glance our way was not easy. I was facing the back of the bar and my wife had her back to the bar. The hostess was to concerned with her can of Sprite and her phone to notice much. The waitress/bartender was the only person who seemed to be working the entire front of the house. My wife turned in her seat and almost stood up to get noticed and we placed our food order but we were not given a chance to order another flight of wine. We had noticed another person walking back and forth talking to 1 or 2 tables, and we assumed he was the manager. He would sit and chit chat with these select few customers until they left and would disapear for a bit. He would bring bottles of wines out to the bar and vanish. When they got busier he suddenly started "helping out" and would bus a table, wipe off the bar, blow his nose behind the bar, etc. After the nose blowing incident and we had not gotten our food yet I was ready to leave. He then walked into the kitchen turned around within 10 seconds and returned with food in his hands. Luckily not MINE! If this wasnt enough the waitress comes out to deliver food to another table with one hand and has 3 rolls of toilet paper in her other hand. This was it for me and we paid our tab, left a 18 percent tip and left. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was quaint, the service left much to be desired - well unless you go there as a regular, then you are apparently treated well...

    The food was ok. There were more things we didn't care for on the menu than those we liked. The seared tuna was good. The meatballs had zero flavor. The grilled asparagus and prosciutto was ok. Duck empanadas were ok. Our waitress was less than friendly and had no sense of urgency.

    I was taking my husband and my sons there for my husband's Birthday dinner. I have to say I did not agree with the high rating that was on the website. She seated us at a high back table saying that was all they had and we saw other tables open. The portions were very small for the price and fair as far as taste. The waitress seemed sedated, she was very slow and hardly ever around. She did not make any suggestions for wine pairing or describe any of the food or suggestions for what they had. I was very disappointed for what should have been a more enjoyable meal.

    We spotted this place driving home recently, read the good reviews and thought to give it a try. After trying in vain to book a table on a Friday or Saturday, we found an opening on a Sunday evening and ventured last weekend. We found out that Vinos operates a first come first serve at the weekends which is why we could not book a table for weeks in advance. Place was quiet, no surprise given it was a Sunday and on a holiday weekend. Server was really friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. We went for a mix of tapas - nice selection, unusual tastes and all perfectly cooked. Portions are on the small size but price and quantity met with expectations. The wine list is extensive and the wine flight we tried was a nice feature to taste some different wines in smaller 2 oz quantities. Overall it was a pleasant visit and we would probably come back again and try a weekday evening instead. I would say this is the perfect place for a to enjoy a light bite with a glass of wine.

    The owner had come to our community for a food and wine pairing event. We loved the tapas served at that event, so we decided to try the restaurant for our 48th anniversary dinner. We found it was a place more for a late afternoon or evening snack with wine. Not enough selections for a dinner. Quality of food was high, but we thought it was expensive for what we got.

    We told the owner that we don't visit them enough. Their small plates are a great option when you're not sure how hungry you are or if you just want to try a lot of different things, and the service is personal and professional. We enjoyed two excellent Malbec's while sampling a variety of small plates and celebrating our wedding anniversary. This was our 4th or 5th visit, and we've never been disappointed....and its a good value too!

    Vinos Finos is a cozy establishment with about 10-15 tables. We opted for the Valentine's Day Prix Fixe menu and from the unique take on dishes to the perfectly sweetened desserts, we loved every bit of what we tasted. Their wine list was extensive and the bottle we had was excellent, especially for the price. The staff was a bit harried, but I think Valentine's day was a bit overwhelming for their resources. Once the crowd thinned out a little, they were extremely friendly and a pleasure to interact with.
