On Monday’s bouillabaisse is the special and it is spectacular. I had it for my main course. Two of the other people had the fluke and one had the asparagus risotto. For starters we ordered little neck clams and the calamari salad to share. All the food was delicious.
We went back to this restaurant on a Monday night when they featured bouillabaisse. The food was excellent. Since this was a n off night there were fewer people than on Saturday night and we enjoyed the less hectic atmosphere. If you are going for the food only any night is perfect. For a quieter time I believe weekdays are better
Food excellent. Noise level made it difficult to talk
We enjoyed a lovely meal. The atmosphere was pleasant & welcoming. The service was excellent. We would definitely return.
Excellent as always but very costly
Always fabulous! Perfect meal, excellent drinks and superb service. Our favorite restaurant on Shelter Island.
still a great nite out.. service was good.. dishes continue to satisfy. wine list could use updating..
Delicious food, great service. Would recommend. Pricey but delicious.
Another great night at Vine Street Café. It requires a ferry ride to get to, but it's worth the trip. We see it as a great place for a special dinner. Our service happened to be slow on this night, due to the season and crowd. We didn't mind as we always see it as a no rush place, but it would be annoying to some people. Our food was excellent, with the exception of a beef entre being cool/cold to the touch. This was corrected immediately with the interior temp as desired. This takes away from a higher rating, but we'll be back.
As usual, food was very good and service was fine. Also, as usual meal tab is pretty high for what you get. It's a shame, this is a good restaurant and on a Sunday evening in March could have a lot more people in it, but the price inhibits people from going there very often. Of course, when the summer crowd arrives they can pretty much charge what they like.
The food here is always amazing and the service always friendly. Can’t go wrong with any dish on the menu. But definitely you must have the sticky toffee cake for dessert.
I have heard such good things about Vine Street Cafe but I felt the food did not live up to they hype or the prices. I had the pork/bacon dish and it was on the tasteless side. Sorry, wanted to love it.
One of the best places on Shelter Island for a good meal. Not quite a “foodie” spot - but definitely serving high quality takes on mostly classic dishes.
Awesome meal as always!
Very good food and nice ambiance, but pricey for what it was. Wine pour was barely a third of the glass for $15. :-(.
Delicious food, great wine selection, friendly, attentive wait staff, comfortable, relaxed setting. In a word -- perfect.
Vine Street is a wonderful and reliable neighborhood place with a warm, welcoming, country ambiance, gracious help and excellent food. My husband and I are year round regulars. Highly recommend!!!
Always a treat - the Prix Fix is excellent and a great value. Food is amazing. Different flavors, especially love the calamari salad! The mussels were excellent in both broths. Love this hidden gem!
Very nice decor and atmosphere but the kitchen is lacking very pretentious wanting to be high end restaurant without the execution, service is nice and courteous.
We had a simple dinner (one entree each and a shared dessert). The food was good but not exceptional. The service was very good, prompt and friendly.
Our ABSOLUT Favorite Spot in ALL the Hamptons 👍... 6 Stars ⭐️!!
This place is always nothing short of perfect -- the ambience, the staff, the service, and that's before we even begin to talk about the amazing food and cocktails.
We've been there often. The food is good, though a bit expensive. It was not as crowded this weekend as it is in summer.
Food is very good but the service lack the standard that I would expect for the price point.
Prix fixe is a nice value, if you get there early (before 6:00). The restaurant was full by 8:00 p.m., even in mid November. Likely a tough place to get a table in season. I did not see or taste anything to support the few negative reviews.
It was a wonderful dinner. The food was delicious and the service excellent with such attention to detail
Good food and phenomenal and attentive staff. I would recommend for small groups or a couple's dinner.
A good meal, but pricey. Vine Street delivers in terms of service and dependability. But does every entree in the Hamptons have to be $30. and up?
Party of 4. Service was eh. Asked for a side of ice with my mimosa, never got it. Had to ask for butter twice. I ordered the smoked tuna sesame. It was not smoked and had little flavor. The others did enjoy their apps. I ordered the special, lobster pot pie. The lobster and seafood filling was delicious but only had a tiny circle of pastry on top. So more of a bouillabaisse than a pie. To be fair, the others enjoyed their meal. Dessert choices were kind of mediocre. One or two interesting items and ice cream. And they couldn’t make a Baily’s coffee. Had to serve liquor on the side with coffee and I had to pour it in myself. No whipped cream. The topper? Prices were ridiculous, even for a quality place.
No need to go again.
The calamari salad is excellent!!! i would go just to sit at the bar with a nice glass and order the salad. The prix-fix has a lot of choices and is a good value. We went twice last week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves both times.
One of the two best restaurants on Shelter Island. 18 Bay is the other, but has a very limited schedule off season. We were very pleasantly surprised to discover upon our arrival that Vine Street offers a $29 early bird prix fixe menu from 5 to 6 p.m. with just a few supplements. The salmon is a must.
The staff was very warm, attentive, and accommodating. When our 11-week-old son fussed, they didn't bat an eye, just continued to treat us very warmly at the same time that they took excellent care of the other patrons. Thank you, Vine Street, for a delightful evening! We will certainly be back.
Everything is so good. Warm bread, miso salmon, filet, calamari salad, bolognese sauce are our usually ordering choices.
Vine Street remains a good choice for an evening out. Well worth the ferry that most people will have to take.
Never disappoints. Staff was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. There's no better restaurant on the east end.
I hadn't been to Vine Street Cafe in a few years, as the ferry ride to the island has increased in price. However, a friend gave me a gift card to this spot and I was thrilled, as it made me make the trip. The food is always excellent. Our waiter got a bit confused during our dinner. He had cleared our dinner plates and we were ready for the dessert menu and he returned with knives and spoons for a first or second course. If he had been a good waiter, he should have remembered our table and known that we were on the third course. Menu choices are always good and the food preparation and presentation is outstanding. I highly recommend Vine Street Cafe.
Had a great night with friends. We were seated on schedule on a busy Saturday night. Diver Scallops, Mussels and filet got high marks. Good wine list. Enjoy.
I have eaten at vine street many times and the food is always fantastic.
I brought friends from out of town and raved about it being the best restaurant on shelter island.
The food was very good. The service was very disappointing. The server apologized about the service but did nothing to improve it. At the price point of vine street , a diner deserves excellent service every time
Unfortunately Friday night we did not get that and were embarrassed to have brought our friends there paying a lot of money for Mediocre service at best
We have been to this restaurant a number of times and find the food to be consistently good. Service is friendly.
Yes there arent a lot of good restaurants on shelter island. This isnt one if them though
