Excellent food and service. Decor and furnishings is below average. Disappointed some diners wearing flip flops and shorts- cant be helped, though.

The food and service were both excellent and I would eat here again. There are two areas that need addressing, one being easy to fix: The ceiling — The ceiling tiles look bad, stained, dusty, and broken in some areas; the HVAC intake and exhaust vent covers on the ceiling are significantly dusty, dirty and stained; they need to be cleaned and re-painted. The appearance of the ceiling detracts from the overall ambiance of the restaurant. Dress attire: Business Casual? We observed several adult patrons in shorts and flip flops; one male customer was wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Either do a better job at enforcing the dress code, or change the dress code from “business casual” to “casual”.

We had a good meal, but the noise level was so high that could barely hear the waiter. We asked the music to be turned lower, and the voice level seemed to follow. Suggestion: skip the music. All that does is make people speak louder to compete with it.

I've noticed the best restaurant atmospheres have no music.

Vinnie's is a great place to go for fine dining and a great bone-in filet. I have been to many other steakhouses in the area and the only reason I would ever go to another one is because it's a Sunday or Monday and Vinnie's is closed. The Ahi Tuna appetizer is amazing. Every server we have had at Vinnie's has been better than the best server anywhere else. I cannot recommend this place enough.

How have I lived in Raleigh for 11 years and never visited this place? Great food and great service. Steaks were amazing along with everything else we had. We will definitely be back on Tuesday or Thursday for 1/2 price bottles of wine!

We all had wonderful dinners but I will speak of mine. I chose the filet Oscar style. The bernaise sauce was light and let the steak’s flavor shine through. The lump crabmeat was just that .... lumps, jumbo lumps. And the asparagus was quite tender. The steak was cooked perfectly. I had the twice baked potato and shared sautéed spinach and pecan broccoli with other diners. Others had dessert or after dinner drinks but I was too full! We will go again!

Vinnie’s is our go to steakhouse. The food and service are always excellent. By far the best waiter in the place is Lance. Highly recommend you ask for him when you go for dinner. He is attentive, good sense of humor and ensures a great dining experience

Vinnys has really good food and excellent service. My husband and I had the fillet and lobster dinners and they were excellent! My only critique would be that this is the second time or the third time I’ve been to Vinny’s and it takes a really long time to get your entrée you know 30 or 40 minutes or more. But other than that it was an excellent experience!
