I like Vinnies…I do…but the prices are unreasonable. $48 for four scallops and polenta cake. I can make that for $10 at home. Not impressive considering this was “the special”
Expensive but each course was excellent. Filet cooked perfectly. Seasoned with s/p only. Excellent cut. Tomato salad shined. Just be prepared to spend $$$.
Steak was Phenomenal. Took my boyfriend here for birthday dinner on recommendation and we’ll be back.
Sign of a great restaurant...Consistency. Vinnie's delivers over and over. You can always count them for on an excellent meal.
Fantastic dining experience. The food at Vinnie's Steakhouse and Tavern is always perfect. Salads are crisp and the dressings homemade and fresh (we recommend the chopped salad). Oysters on the half shell rival ones that you can get at the beach. Entrees were cooked perfectly. Steaks are fantastic, we recommend the Gouda potatoes and the butter beans as sides to share. We were all too full for the blueberry dessert, but will be getting that next time! We strongly recommend. We sat outside for some quiet conversation and the fans helped to keep us cool in the July heat.
ALWAYS above excellent.
Great for a special occasion ... the service and food are both phenomenal.
What a pleasure. We celebrated four July Family birthdays very attentive staff and what fun!
Michael was our waiter. He was attentive, didn’t rush us and was friendly yet professional. He was very good.
It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary, they made it a very memorable evening.
And.. they gave us a complimentary dessert to continue our celebration.
Wonderful restaurant. Wonderful service.
In the past, when we owned our own business, we entertained our staff here for their Christmas party on several occasions. It was a wonderful experience then too.
Always delicious food with exceptional service!!!!
The oysters were very good. Unfortunately my strip steak was disappointing. A bit dry, ordered medium rare, a bit over cooked, and under seasoned. It was not the succulent meat I had previously enjoyed. The rest of the food ordered was very good. The service was not as smooth as one would expect at an expensive restaurant.
The waitress was extremely nice she was great. But that was the only good thing about this experience. Steak was cooked perfectly but it was fatty and very bland tasted like card board. I even order the holendiase sauce. In fact I didn’t even finish it or take it home and I paid 250.00 for the dinner. So that should tell you how good the food is. The oysters had good taste but not enough crackers, I could have ask for more but again for $250.00 a dinner I should not have to. We did not complain it was our anniversary. So my wife & I did laugh and enjoy our time. We made the most of it. We started dinner at 8:30 and did not get our main course until 9:45. But We got to witness a car wreck. And we did have drinks however for the price I would be back....maybe if the price was more around 25-30 per plate. I wish I had went to Sullivan’s steak house that place is the best!!!!!!!!!
Family reunion - first time my daughter snd her family have visited since February 2020. Our waiter’s name was Walter. He was a phenomenal server, patient and answered every question that we asked of him. We had a wonderful meal and enjoyed the experience.
Had to move to another table, which was in a room that had a musty smell.
What a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. Vinnie's always is excellent.
Vinnie’s is a family favorite for all special events and they never fail. Steaks are incredible and always consistent. The specials are always tasty options. There is always a great set of seafood options and I really enjoyed the Mahi mahi with the herbed Risoto this time around.
First it was so enjoyable to sit in a restaurant and not experience any evidence of the damnable virus that has permeated so many aspects of our lives for the past 15 months.
Vinnie's sets a high bar and they exceeded it last night, from the hostess that seated us all the way to the end of the evening - a first rate dining adventure!
Would especially like to cite our server, Shannon. She provided great guidance for food & wine selections and struck just the right balance between present when we needed her without ever drawing unnecessary attention to herself. Well done Shannon!
Looking forward to my next visit and having the aged beef back on the menu.
The lobster and steaks are perfection, the Oysters Rockefeller, delicious and generous, and the home-made ice cream is DIVINE!
Always a wonderful dining experience. Delicious food from appetizer to dessert.
Fantastic food and service as always! We love this place!
Special Father’s Day dinner that exceeded expectations!!
Excellent food and service. My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner and will definitely be back.
Everything was top notch. Chef came out to check on us!
Service, food, experience.... phenomenal!!!
Outstanding as always! Can’t say enough of the service and quality of the food!!
Great evening, great dinner.
We chose this after searching for a nice restaurant for a birthday celebration and found many restaurants already booked. Glad they were because we were able to book Vinnies two days before arrival and found ourselves sitting in a quiet, classic nice smaller dining room, with a very attentive staff and excellent food from an extensive menu. Very happy with the choice.
The staff was exceptionally accommodating considering I had to change our reservation time for a party of six. That along with the delicious food will definitely bring us back!
Vinnie’s never disappoints, our go to for the best meal in Raleigh.
Excellent food and service. Favorite restaurant for special occasions.
All good, however IMO overpriced compared to comparable steakhouses
Amazing. Food was delicious. Drinks were stiff. Staff was lovely.
One expensive steak was overdone while a second steak was perfect. Did not send back due to slow service and not wanting to watch others eat while I waited. Fish was too salty. Very costly for what we got. Not up to their, usually, high standards.
Vinnie’s never disappoints! They are always hitting on all cylinders.
Our server, Omar, was incredible! Great food! Tuesday night half priced wine!!
Always an outstanding experience from the friendly greeting to the front of the house holding the door on the way out. Steaks were solid, sides and salads excellent and wine/cocktails on point. Service remains best in class and this neighborhood gems keeps bringing us back!
Fantastic steak, scallops, and mahi special! My husband loves the baked potato and the key lime pie is the best in town! Very good service, only negative was that it tended to get noisy. But after pandemic, that was not really too bad!
excellent steak and sides. service was second to none.
Enjoyed dinner last night with great friends and business partners. Food was absolutely delicious, and the service was superb. From opening cocktails through appetizers and the main course to dessert and coffee, Chef Tom and the staff provided a delightful evening.
Our dinner experience at Vinnie’s was exceptional. The service made dinner pleasure and the food was well prepared.
