                                                          The food was outstanding and would definitely go back for that. Only one concern. Our server used so many adjectives with us we were not always sure who she was talking about or to. We are a husband and wife who don’t understand WOKE.

                                                          Friends from San Diego totally enjoyed the dining experience. The only negative was with the short ribs. Cooked to perfection, but on a bed of cold noodles. Besides that, service was impeccable.

                                                          Vine is always great. Both their food and service are standouts. Parking can sometimes be a challenge, but it’s a small price to pay

You can’t go wrong! The fries are the bomb, the brussels are next level oh and the meat/cheese board; so tasty!!

                                                          We had a wonderful dining experience at the Vine! There were four parking spots behind the building. Street parking was a little tough to find during busy Mother’s Day weekend. We were greeted and got seated right away upon arrival. All dishes we ordered were delicious, and our waiter was awesome and very attentive. We will definitely come back again.

                                                          We loved the food, the Rib Eye is huge, a great piece of meat. My only mall complaint, the AC blows straight down on you, some had coats on, others no sweaters or coats, get the AC balanced, please.

                                                          This was the best meal I’ve had in so very long! We’ve been planning to try it & so happy we did. Shortly after sitting down we were gifted with an appetizer to start everything off. Our waiter Josh was excellent. The manager came by to welcome us. The food was out of this world. When we declined dessert, they brought one for us to share, wish our friend a very happy birthday & invited us to return again soon. So unexpected, fresh & Fabulous!

                                                          Great place; however they seemed to overbook which led to an over filled restaurant, which in turn led to reduced service. I was happy to see they apparently turned away a group of about 5 which were extremely inappropriately dressed....shorts, tank top, no shoes etc. I also like the fact they did not have child seats nor a kids menu, and therefore no children present, which we really liked. Nothing worse than spending a roll on a fine dinning restaurant which then allows irresponsible parents to bring their crying children and ruin everbodys meal. Overall; a very good experience with minor exceptions. We will return again and recommend the Vine to all.

Service was impeccable! Our server was knowledgeable and very nice! The appetizer of "Fried green tomatoes and burrata " was simply amazing!! Highly recommend and I will be going back to try more items on their menu.

                                                          Amazing time. This has always been one of my most favorite restaurants in South County. I don't think I've been back since the pandemic and it was like visiting old friends. Same great vibe, excellent cheerful service and the food was A++.

                                                          Instead of ordering entrees, we decided to do a variety of starters. They were spaced out perfectly and we never felt rushed. Our Manhattan cocktails were perfect, and we couldn’t have asked for a better server than Michelle. It was our first time there, but we’ll be back.

                                                          We met another couple for dinner. We all have different diets and this menu had something delicious for all of us. Our water glasses were constantly refilled, the server was outstanding and the food, even the presentation was awesome!

                                                          The Vine is one of our favorite restaurants and is very unique in terms of ambience, as it has areas that are quiet and exclusive and others that are more lively. Meanwhile, the food features really special blends that work well with a great wine selection. They are very welcoming.

Innovative take on the short rib beef stroganoff - highly recommend it if you like short ribs. I appreciate the selection of wines, small plates, main dishes and desserts plus service was friendly and sharp.

                                                          I thought the food was on the expensive side. We got there when the restaurant first opened and the service was very good. The food came quickly.

                                                          Service was great, my favorite thing about the dinner was the bottle of wine. The cheese board is roughly 4% cheese so keep that in mind when ordering.

                                                          "I love the relaxed feel of this place – The outdoor dining area was a bit loud for intimate conversation. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Lentil soup was amazing and the Brussels sprouts, Burrata green fried tomatoes and ravioli starters were out of this world. Everyone loved the bone in Ribeye steak, halibut, chicken schnitzel and the cheese/meat plates. Service was well-timed and friendly, wished they don’t have a corkage, I would come weekly ;)
