    Great restaurant good food and service. Unfortunately, it was hotter in the dining room than outside patio. So hot we were unable to enjoy our $800.00 dinner. Very poor dining experience.

    The ambiance is nice- there was live music and the view is great. Our server was very informative, helpful and in top of our meal. The food was all so delicious! And beautiful presentation. My husbands only complaint was that his old fashioned had the wrong type of ice cube and it became watered down too fast.

    The service was great and the food was outstanding. The room felt a bit warm and a couple of the servers were standing and talking a lot to each other not far from our table. Our waiter was terrific, attentive and helpful. All in all, we enjoyed our dining experience.

    We had a great dinner at Vintana’s, we arrived early before our reservation, they were able to seat us early 👍🏼 Our drinks & appetizers were delicious and so was our dinner. Our waiter was very friendly & efficient & we even got a complimentary dessert for our anniversary!!! Great experience 😍

    It’s delish! Waitress didn’t come around much. I paid for the candlelight dinner but no candlelight was placed. I don’t appreciate the fact they don’t let you see your check at check out they only tell you the amount which I thought was strange

    I was sad to see that this place is not nearly as good as it once was. The popovers used to be hot and crisp. Tonight they were cold and soggy. The calamari was rubbery. The seared ahi was ok vut rhe rice cake was too hard to eat. Overall, a disappointment. I hope they improve to their former quality!

    We used to love Vintana. However, they have removed all of our favorite items from the menu -- crispy brussel sprout appetizer; filet mignon trio; cioppino; macadamia nut crusted fish. It was my wife's birthday and her short rib came luke warm, potatoes almost cold. Very disappointing. We enjoy the Cohn group restaurants, but Vintana is now a poor value and may be coming off of our list...

    The bread was cold. The salad was good. My steak wasn’t medium rare, over cooked. The lobster was good. The service was poor. Ordered wine didn’t receive it for 15 minutes. I’ve eating there many times and this was the worst, and it was our 20th anniversary. I paid extra for romantic experience. Rose peddles and candle on the table.

    We had a 5:45 reservation with our friends who watched our house for 7 weeks while we were on a cross country trip. Three of us were in our 80’s and I am 71 and the designated driver. We all had a cocktail and my husband also enjoyed a glass of wine.The guys had lobster bisque (fantastic). The ladies split a wedge (wonderful) and then each couple shared a meal that were fantastically wonderful. We were all quite content after these great meals. When you are older you don’t eat a lot. Never felt any pressure to rush or order more. We spent an extremely pleasant 2 hours at Vintana. Great Experience!

    Not the greatest experience! Had to ask for water 3 times, there were no chunks of lobster in the bisque (a dish they claim to be know for), our glasses of wine came after our first course was served, bottle of wine was opened at table but we had to ask to taste it (which the server accommodated) then walked away and never once poured the wine afterwards (we did so ourselves), asked for decaf coffee and considering we were wide awake until after 3am we’re guessing it was regular.

    We had dinner reservations for 7:30, got to the bar at 7:10, it took 15 minutes to get a drink, and we were sitting at the bar. I had a $46.00 Prime New york steak, it was terrible. We in the past had the prime rib, which was always good, but no longer on the menu. Also all kinds of fee;s being added to the bill. Sadly, we will look for a new place.

    I love the venue. It’s very relaxing, easy parking, nice dining spaces. I ordered the cauliflower, curried and roasted with coconut rice. I NEVER order vegetarian, but for some reason it appealed to me. My husband wanted to try it too, so we agreed to share it along with the short rib sandwich melt. My son ordered the fish n chips and my mom got a Asian inspired chicken salad. Both my husband and I agreed that the cauliflower was exceptional. We thought the sandwich was rather bland. I thought it was too beef forward - not enough other flavors. My mom said the salad was OK - but she’s not that into Asian flavors so who knows. Both my son and husband liked the fish n chips - a LOT. It was my husband’s favorite, mostly because he said the tartar was was really good.. The sandwich was my son’s favorite and they ended up swapping. That cauliflower was worth going back for! We also got the calamari which came with the jalapeño coleslaw - delicious. And the brownie dessert which was split 5 ways.

    I’ve been to this place over a dozen times and this last experience made it my last! I know good service is hard to come by these days but this was pretty bad. When we brought it to the manager’s attention half way through dinner it didn’t get much better. They were out of their best dish, the sea bass. The oysters and tuna were very average. Not going back :(
