The grilled bokchoy was to die for! But so was every dish that we had. The attention we got was just what we needed - friendly and discreet, not hovering. And we got the quiet corner we had requested. Will go back any day.

Went in with a party of 5 and all got the pre-fixe menu. Had our waiter curate the dishes for us and he did Ana amazing job. Each dish was paired and coursed perfectly. Would highly recommend to any friends and family. We had such a fun and tasty evening!

The food was really good as was the overall dining experience. The chef recommended we try a number of dishes from the 3-course menu and it didn’t disappoint.
Highly recommend Vino Vino for great quality food, plus excellent atmosphere and service.

The food was absolutely fantastic, and our waiter was extremely attentive. My one suggestion is one I would put out there for all small plates restaurants: when you see that the dinner party has one or two more people than the number of, say, shrimp, you're bringing out, it would be good to ask if the party wishes to incur an upcharge so that the number of shrimp on the small plate is equal to the number of people in the party. Otherwise, everything was absolutely perfect!

My husband and I really like Vino Vino, but we have found that their prices are really high compared to similar restaurants we've been to. And it seems they've raised their prices since we were last there. Their food is of excellent quality, but quantity for the price is meager at best. Even the wine by the glass prices were raised, and the bottle prices are too expensive for us. Their menu is diverse, but not many options on the main plates (or wines by the glass). It's a nice romantic restaurant, but they might want to consider cutting back on their prices and adding more food and wine by the glass options.

Consistently good food. Platres are directionally small for the price. Wine prices are about 3X retail and glass prices about 1/4 of bottle prices so a glass costs almost what a retail bottle would cost. Good service but the bar can get way behind. A good experience but I wish plates were slightly larger and wine prices lower.

I am only disappointed because of the fundamental changes since I was there last. I enjoyed strolling around the room, shopping and learning about wines on the wall. I missed the small plate/large plate concept, and was disgruntled to see that the fixed price menu was $40/pp!! Add that to the fact that one would be hard-pressed to find a wine under $50 a bottle. Everything I loved about this restaurant is gone. I could go to Jeffrey's for what it cost to heat here.

Great for dinner w/ friends! We went with another couple and shared the “prix fixe” menu. The service was outstanding - from wine recommendations to education about the menu. Our food was delivered at the right pace, with enough time to enjoy each before moving to the next. We were never rushed and were able to enjoy a great evening with fantastic food in a cool atmosphere. Great value for the food and experience. Highly recommend!

I went with two other people and we tried every main dish on the menu except the salad. We also made our own cheese and charcuterie board. It was some of the best food I’ve ever had and for such a good price! The meal wasn’t cheap but it wasn’t overpriced by any means. The two cocktails I had were both very creative and balanced. I’m looking forward to going back and trying the rest of their cocktails!

I enjoyed my meal at Vino Vino. The food was excellent, and the service was very good. However, the portions were a tad small, and the 80's pop-music didn't really fit the atmosphere one normally expect from a wine bar-restaurant.

The food was fantastic. Frankly it was the star of the show. A couple of things: 1. If you are going to call yourself Vino, Vino then have a big selection of wines. The list is a bit of a let down. 2. Invest in a proper menu. There are a lot of gems on the menu but it is laid out poorly and in a small font. Invest in a 8.5x 11" piece of paper :)

Seriously great food however, we will be back.

We used to come to Vino Vino all the time. Seems to have changed ownership. Less selection of wines and far more expensive. Food quality has fallen. Our service was just weird - we had one waiter at the beginning and then he just disappeared. As in, not at the restaurant anymore. Very sorry that a place where we had some very fond memories has declined so much.

Our table of 6 enjoyed sampling every single plate from the prix-fix menu! What an extraordinary treat! Started with a beautiful 7 piece Cheese Sampler, a lovely Grilled Pear salad, Hummus with house made pita chips, Pasta, Chicken Liver Mousse and Johnny Cakes followed by Lamb, Octopus, Texas Quail, Gulf Prawns, an amazing Pork Belly, Goat Cheesecake (times three - too good to share!) Cannolo and a Hazelnut Gelato. Oh my tastebuds! Thank you Vino Vino for a night to remember!

Vino Vino was a great selection for our Friday night dinner with friends. We started with The 5 cheese tray, olives and soda bread. All excellent but I would suggest a more traditional Tuscan bread instead of the more dense soda bread. We ordered the quail, lamb, and cheese burgers, each dish was tasty and well presented.... there was a good select of wine to complement all of their dishes. The restaurant environment was energetic and had a local tavern sense about it. This was a great place to eat!!
