Chef/Owners Lisa & Terry Harwood opened Vine Street Cafe in 2003. Located on South Ferry Road, just 1.5 miles from the South Ferry. Chef Terry works with area farmers, fishermen & vineyards and features their natural bounty on his seasonal menus. We make everything in house and Lisa's desserts, ice creams and fruit crisps are no exception. Recently, we opened a small market behind the restaurant. This is where you pick up take-out orders while stocking your home pantry. Specialty catering is available along with ready fresh meals such as meatballs, chicken salad, bread, smoked ribs, BBQ Sauce and a selection of artisan pastas. Reservations are highly recommended year round.

Dining room was so hot we had to move outside in a rainstorm. Food was good, but very, very expensive. Waiter Vincent was the best part of the evening - friendly, attentive and took note it was our anniversary in the reservation.

I went with my 88-year-old father and everything was wonderful. This was our second time and each time the service was gracious and responsive. We said we loved the bread and our wait person brought us a little baguette to take with us. I love the sauteed vegetables and jasmine rice as I am a vegetarian. My dad has had the mussels and other seafood and always loves it. We'll come back the next time I visit.

Resturant had no heat. These things happen early in the season. But , I ordered the NY strip steak ....seems easy right ? Steak was so fatty I must have had to spit out 8-10 pieces. My wife had the miso salmon which she said was very good.
Service was poor.

They have done a great job with the outdoor setting and the pivoting during these challenging times. Also I love the market for take out. The food is consistently great. Those tuna tacos are incredible.

Lucky to be there on a Monday to have the bouillabaisse, always excellent. Everything is top quality here and the cozy, warm ambience is so appreciated. Have loved this place for years, always happy to see it is still there.

Decided to give Vine a second chance after a very bad experience about 10 years ago. We were asked to leave before we finished our dinner as other people were waiting for the table. This had never happened in any country we had visited and we travel a lot.

First time here and everything was fantastic: attentive staff, top quality food, and great ambiance. We had the duck and the filet mignon - both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The sides were also great (highly recommend the grits), and despite being full, we were convinced to get dessert by our waiter and did not regret it. We sat inside but tables were well distanced, and would love to come back and sit in the beautiful outdoor garden space some time!

It was very mediocre. The service was below mediocre. The food quality was just OK. For the price it was way under value.

Highly recommend dining here, great food and service. We were a party of 5, everything we ordered was cooked perfectly, especially the crispy calamari appetizer, the duck confit and chateaubriand entrees, the bok choi/mushrooms, and the brie cheesecake was spectacular. The cocktails were good but took some time for them to get to the table.

Beautiful spot with lovely outdoor dining area. Excellent menu with superb salmon with miso glaze (want to try other things but can’t resist this whenever I go there!) and other excellent selections on their appealing menu. A first rate, high quality experience that never disappoints.
