Our server was fabulous.
Unfortunately, our food came to the table within 5 minutes of us placing our order and
we were still in the cocktail mode.
The "Anniversary" dessert was a very nice surprise.

This was our first visit. The staff was very nice, professional and accommodating. We ate outside which was great for us since it wasn’t as dark or noisy as the indoor seating. My husband had the salmon and let me and our friend have a sample. It was absolutely delicious! He usually only orders salmon prepared “blackened” because he doesn’t like even a hint of fish taste. He thought he would be adventurous and try this new dish (I think it was poached). Anyway, he loved it and will order again! Our friend & I had the chicken schnitzel. It was very disappointing...dry and little to no flavor. The vegetables that came with it also had little to no flavor and were a little undercooked for my taste but our friend said she liked them because she likes raw vegetables. Our main complaint was the dryness and no flavor or seasoning. They have an extensive drink list. I had a “mocktail”
with cucumber, herbs, strawberries..
Very Yummy!! My husband had a spicy cocktail with vodka, Orange liqueur, Serrano peppers and ??? which was also excellent! Our friend had a very nice Chardonnay. We will go back and give it another try. Just stay away from the chicken schnitzel!!! 😊

We ate outside near the front of the restaurant. It was a fun vibe and the service and food were top notch. Our group ate schnitzel, filet, and sea bass - all were cooked perfectly. Warning the schnitzel is huge! I like this place because you always get some good - not cooked to death - veggies with each entree.
We started with the duck wings which are amazing. Did not have dessert. The drinks were tasty - especially the martini's.

Congratulations to the front and back of "the Vine house". Every member of the service staff were convivial and caring. I judge the kitchen staff by the incredible quality of the delicious food. So kind to provide a free dessert for my 66th birthday & a VIP $1 corkage fee too! Amazing...

This is one of our favorite restaurants and so happy to be able to yydine in again. We celebrate most of our birthdays and anniversaries here and tonight was no exception. 7 of us ate outside in their covered patio. Drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert were fabulous. They treat us like family and we love the fact that it’s a guaranteed great evening. Thank Gabe, Carrie, Rebecca for making our night special.

A very good meal and very good service. The Ribeye made my day. My wife's Trout was almost as good as Salmon. The Duck Wings are an Appetizer I can't pass up. Thank you The Vine.

We always have a great time at Vine. Food is excellent, staff is quick and attentive, drinks are yummy. They’re always busy which makes it tough to get in sometimes, but can’t blame them for being popular.

Great service and fantastic food. The layout is wonderful - and we enjoyed dinner at our table located outside. They have done a great job of making the outside area look welcoming. We would recommend Vine for dinner as the food and drinks are consistently great.

Excellent first time-experience. Shared three appetizers ranked from first to third: Brussels sprouts with pork belly, mac and cheese, and English pea ravioli. Kobe burger and fries are delicious. Nice beer and wine selection along with craft cocktails. Recommend.

We were seated at the bar but wanted the sinning room. We asked how to reserve it in the future and got a ½ answer... you have to ask but it’s not guaranteed! Huh? It was guaranteed for others that night since there were empty tables and we were not allowed there... hmmmm

The food was great, the chard and faro soup was delicious (could use a little less salt), the white shrimp appetizer was ok, the wedge salad was great, loved the tomato jam! The Chilean sea bas was perfect! The service was great and we enjoyed our dinner! We’ll be back... maybe they’ll let us sit in the dinning room... if we behave ;)

I made a reservation earlier in the day for 9pm. My partner and I arrived and were seated in the dining room. In the bar area the noise level was moderate, but the dining room was cozy and quiet. I highly recommend the brussell sprounts, even if just for the tender ham that comes on top. You can taste the mint they used to season the brussell sprouts! I ordered the salmon, he ordered the prime rib (so much food). The sides for the prime rib were delicious and buttery, and the rib itself was delicious. The salmon itself was underwhelming, but the sides (couscous and pearl mushrooms) made it worthwhile. Overall, the atmosphere was charming and the food was worth the price on it.

Great restaurant. Haven’t been in a while because ironwood is closer. New manager was awesome. Carrie is the best and remembered my wife’s preferences for food prep after all this time. Only disappointment was they eliminated what was an amazing soufflé from their menu—have to bring this back!

We took our daughter to The Vine to celebrate her 13th birthday. When asked what she wanted for dinner she informed me she wanted to try duck. Knowing how excellent the duck wings are at The Vine, and that she also wanted a fancy burger, we knew we had to take her to The Vine for the wings and the Mexicali burger. She loved both! The staff was warm and friendly and made the experience extra special. I look forward to returning soon for another outstanding meal!
