We will be back! We had a great time and the service was phenomenal!!
Best steak in Raleigh, by far. Service outstanding!
Great place to eat. Wonderful attentive service. Definitely will go back.
Vinny’s was the perfect spot for our anniversary dinner! Tracy (and the entire staff) were amazing! Kudos chef...we will be back.
Great food and service
Went here for my husband's birthday and it was just ok. The bar was very loud and rowdy, the restaurant is old and needed updating, steak was just ok, sides were awesome, got free dessert for his birthday which was just ok, coffee was good, wine was good, server was a bit slow (had to request bread when other tables got it without asking), and it was pretty expensive for just ok food and service.
Great service , food good but overpriced, needs updating inside
It was excellent!!!
my wife and I have been dining twice a year at Vinnie's for the past 25 years and have always been treated fantastically, with proper service and great meals. The Saturday night Prime Rib cannot be beaten anywhere and the Italian dishes are superb as well.
My fav restaurant in Raleigh!
We have been going to Vinnies for many years. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Raleigh
We went the other night with old and good friends and we are happy to say that they continue to be a very excellent steakhouse with good service and good food
We needed a good night out and Vinnie's was GLORIOUS! The steak and lobster dinners were cooked perfectly. The mixed mushrooms in duck fat sooo tasty. The single malt scotch verrryy smooth. And my creme brulee was the best I've had in a long time. Creamy consistency. But the absolute AMAZING surprise was the home-made ice cream - that day's special was Rosemary ice cream, and it was to DIE for. You could smell the aroma, but even more -I cannot say enough about the creamy texture - the chef is a real artist in how that ice cream came out - soft enough to spoon, creamy, perfect flavor. I can't say enough about the meal. Last and most important - the SERVICE - our waitress made the whole dinner a pleasure. Attentive without being intrusive, and she seemed to take as much joy in how we enjoyed our meal as we did. Bottom line, we WILL be back!
First time in 20 years a bad experience. Our steaks were way to done after waiting 1.5 hours to get them. Sides were all delicious. Service not as good as usual either. Very disappointed after spending well over 600.00.
Great place. We are regulars and this is an outstanding restaurant. Not only are their steaks fabulous but they serve wonderful Italian dishes and great seafood!
Great time. Really great food.
This is a rock solid steakhouse. Everything is done right! I recommend highly.
Walter, our server, made our evening delightful.
We love everything about Vinnie’s! Food, service, ambiance...everything.
We were seated in the side room which didn’t feel warm. I attribute this to COVID restrictions, but I really don’t understand why you can’t put a flower on the table or at least light a candle
We were dining with another couple. The chicken piccata was delicious and enough to take leftovers home. My husband ordered the Queen filet which was over cooked. He also got $8 worth of French fries (overcooked and unappetizing because there were so many). He enjoyed his salad. One in our group ordered the fried lobster as an appetizer. Again, it was plentiful but fried calabash style with heavy breading. Imagine our surprise when we received our bill and the lobster appetizer was $80.00! This is not a typo—$80 for an appetizer at Vinnies in Raleigh, NC. This was a special and the waitress did not tell us the price. I guess we should have asked and next time we will! Unfortunately, there will not be a next time. We feel like we were deceived by Vinnies. We are all well traveled and enjoy good food and wine all over the world, but this price fir an APPETIZER is absurd.
My husband’s birthday. We have been to Vinnies’ many times it never disappoints. This time everyone was especially friendly and we had many fun chats with all the wait staff. They were busy but just happy to be busy. Thursday nights is half price wine so we splurged and Gita really nice bottle of wine and a extra one to go home. Love this place.
We recently visited Vinnie's (for the first time) to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The staff and manager were very welcoming and helped make our evening special. We appreciate the attention to each detail. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We will definitely visit them again!
Hey I was so impressed with your place and I will make it my regular dining place .
Always a phenomenal experience!!!
It was fabulous as always. Tracy, Amy, and the staff take the best care of you! Food was consistently delicious!
Always great food and great service
Service this time was a little slack
Waiter forget things brought things late to table
But still enjoyed it
The food was delicious and we had a good time!
One of the best filets that I’ve had in a while! Excellent side dishes and appetizers, and a great selection of nice wines as a perfect compliment to the meal.
My husband and I went to Vinny’s for his birthday dinner and had a great time. The steak was tender and cooked to perfection. We went on a Tuesday evening and there was quite a crowd.
Steaks were very good but I ordered the petite filet and my husband ordered the king and there was not much of a difference in the size, certainly not compared to the price difference. Everything is extra even the steak sauce. Mashed potatoes were bland. We usually leave restaurants feeling full. Left Vinny’s feeling hungry. For those prices I was expecting more. I’ll stick with Angus Barn for steak in the future. At least they give you a lot with your meal for the price.
Fantastic in every way shape and form. Will be returning, great place for special occasion.
We love Vinnies. The staff is amazing and the food is always delicious!
Food was excellent and service was stellar! I took my 11 year old out for a celebratory dinner and they made us feel very special.
Our favorite restaurant! Great food, wonderful service.
This is a great special occasion place or just a great place for a fine meal. This meal cost us about $100. per person with tip and well worth every penny. One of the finest restaurant meals I've ever had. Great atmosphere, great food and great service. A++++
Always top notch for food and service! While they’re known for their steaks, their specials, from scallops to rack of lamb are always on point!
We frequently Vinnies a bunch! It’s always on point! Food & Service amazing!
Thanks Jimmy V
The food is absolutely wonderful here. Much better than almost all other places in the area! If you like delicious cocktails, say hi to Jules at the bar! She is one of the best!
Our "go to" neighborhood night out spot. Food, service, and atmosphere great everytime. Amy & Co always make us feel special.
Fabulous as always. The fried lobster & jumbo lump crab appetizers were
amazing & portion size is definitely enough to share. The Jules of the Nile is a can't miss cocktail. Service is exceptional. One of my favorite spots in Raleigh.
We took our employee for dinner for her birthday and had a great experience across the board. The service was great, management was very attentive and detail oriented, and the food was amazing!
