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.

Vine St Cafe for my birthday dinner for 5 was wonderful! This restaurant is pricey, but worth it. The mahi mahi, strip steak and moules frites were scrumptious!

We went for anniversary dinner.
Wait staff pleasant. Pretty attentive. Appetizers were good. Fish tacos and crispy calamari.
The entree was terrible. Pastrami rubbed ribs.
The rub ruined the ribs which were tender.
We had ordered for two.
Took them home. Next night rubbed all the pastrami rub off ribs and heated them up with bar b q sauce.
I prefer rubbed ribs to sauce but definitely not pastrami. Rubbed.

Food outstanding and our server was excellent. However, bussers had not cleared table from appetizers when main courses came and similar situation occurred when server brought out desert menus. The noise level has always been a problem in this location....on a busy night it can be unbearable.

We had two dishes one was the rice the other was a pastor both good but not outstanding – however this is the best that theorem shelter Island so we have no choice. One of the really good things no of the oysters. They use local oysters know how to prepare them I highly recommend the oysters. The other night we were here I also highly recommend pepper steak. Wish they had a larger dessert menu

Another fantastic meal at Vine St Cafe! Have been here many times and back for the first time in 4 years. Our waiter Kieran was fantastic! He knew we were planning our East Coast trip around Vine St Cafe and had the tuna tartar tacos brought out on the house which were amazing! Our salad and entrees were perfect as were the drinks. The only recommendation would be the bartender at the bar to be less snarky.
Can’t wait to be back!

Duck overcooked

Good experience overall. They had placed a tent over the outdoor space - not sure why. Menu seems to be the same each year, but if it ain’t broke why fix it, right?! Service was great - very friendly and attentive staff. We’ll be returning next summer!

Attention to detail was missing for a good but quite pricey dinner. Rocky table, the candle on the table remained unlit during the evening coupled with some slow service for a good, but not amazing dinner. Also, bathroom was gross.

Such a great dining experience! Close to the ferry and had a lovely atmosphere. The food was amazing - highly recommend the miso salmon, filet mignon, and burrata! The staff was young but very attentive and well-trained. We felt extremely taken care of and cannot wait to return! 11/10

Some fans circulating the air would definitely eliminate the bugs in the outdoor dining area and perhaps drown out some of the noise from the road traffic.

Mom’s birthday dinner with me and my girlfriend. Absolutely delightful outdoor dining experience. Sitting under a canopy among the pebbles with soft vibey music in the background was serene. The service was timely and informed, and the food and drinks were impeccable.

As always Vine Street delivers. Although the service was slower than usual my guest and I had time to talk and relax. Not a problem for me. I have been a vine street patron since they opened and i am never disappointed.
