Great look and feel as you walk in, wonderful wine racks full of unique and intriguing wines. Great sommelier that can help walk you through the complex list. Special wine occasion on this night made it even better! Recommended for a great dinner and wonderful wines.

This place is one of my favorites in ATX! So many reasons to fall in love, they have an amazing wine list, great menu & lovely ambiance! They also have an amazing happy hour, especially their Mondays which is an all Day Happy hour! I always come back for their Goat Cheese and the Mussels! However, today when we came back, they changed their menu! They took out the goat cheese and the mussels recipe changed too! It kinda made me sad because the goat cheese is truly a favorite! The mussels now tastes like curry! I like their old recipe for mussels! Hope they’ll have the goat cheese again!

Really bummed after going to Vino Vino this past weekend. My husband and I used to go frequently in the restaurant’s first few years. Servers were passionate about the wines, and the food, while never Michelin-quality, was always thoughtfully and intentionally prepared. However, after a year or two of having not been to Vino Vino, my husband and I were both very disappointed in our experience this past weekend, and we won’t be returning. Did the owners change? The management? The chef? All of the above?

If you want white, rosé, or sparkling by the glass, you have five options. That’s it... five wines to cover all three of those categories. If you want red, you have another five to choose from. Vino Vino, despite its name, seems a tad more concerned with cocktails st this point. Food-wise, options are okay, but execution leaves something to be desired. I ordered a cheese plate for dinner. The cheeses themselves weren’t bad (Antonelli’s doesn’t offer a bad cheese, so it would be hard to screw that up). However, I was presented with three hunks of refrigerator-cold (should be closer to room temp) cheese on a white plate with a small dollop of something they called a chutney. Toss on some slices of *warm* slightly-toasted grocery store wheat bread, and you’ve got one of the lamest cheese plates in town. Hubby got the burger, which was extremely greasy but quite good. But what happened to those amazing shoestring fries they used to serve, and why were they replaced with Applebee’s-caliber potatoes?

Man, I’m bummed. I had been really looking forward to adding Vino Vino back into our rotation. That won’t be happening anytime soon!

Had to wait 30 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. Waitress was here and there, mostly there. Dinner was good but not great. Wish they had updated the menu on Open Table to manage our expectations of the ultra limited offerings. I’m sure if we were just looking for a wine bar instead of dinner we might have felt differently. Next time if we just want a glass of wine, I might return.

Vino Vino has always been a fave for me. Great service, wine selection, and food! Not to mention the awesome happy hour they have going from 5pm-6:30pm. The restaurant has a nice cozy feel, dimly lit and lots of simple but stylish decor. Love it!

Our first meal at Vino Vino since they remodeled. We stopped by on a Saturday evening. It was after the dinner hour, so it was fairly quiet. The ambiance is very nice. I really like the new look, and the large, decorative drapes dampened the noise between the bar and the back dining room. Very nice update, although I do miss the racks of wine on the wall in the back dining area! Our waiter helped us elect a very nice Pinot noir from south Australia. Very nice, well priced. I’m constantly amazed at the depth of wine knowledge in the “younger” wait staff at Vino Vino. When a restaurant spends the time, money and energy to educate their staff on the wine list to that level, impressive! We tried several items on the new menu ... chicken liver mouse was da bomb, the best I’ve had in Austin in quite sometime. The egg in muerre (I’m sure I mis-spelled that), could have used more eggs. With the soft boiled egg in the mix, the dish was delicious. Without the egg, not so much. At least 3 maybe 4 eggs should be used!. The fish dip with chips was good, and sweet potato chips sealed the deal on that. Very good! A very nice re-acquainting visit. Vino Vino is consistently good food, good prices, and great people!

I am very sorry to say I won't be returning to Vino Vino. I miss the wine selection, and the way in which it was offered. The menu is a big change and a bigger disappointment. The food was uninspiring and poorly executed. The service can best be described as having an attitude of take it or leave it; obviously the waiters were not excited about the place either. Liked the new curtains and the tables, but the mirrors and lighting were not changes for the better. And blue is not a very cozy color. Overall, very mediocre dining experience, at best. So sorry.

My first visit but not my last. Wait staff and sommelier knowledgable and gracious which adds to the dining pleasure. Fantasic wine and food options.
One suggestion - the olive cucumbers sound really interesting and a good first but the presentation needs improving. Comes out piled in a bowl and looks like a bowl of green worms.
Fr fries, mussels fantastic. The schnezel chicken came out quite oily vs dry and the chicken slightly undercooked but crust overcooked. It would have been better not dripping in oil. However, the crust had great flavor.
Chocolate dessert - a nice way to end the evening. The recommended port was sweet and satisfying. No coffee available at this time.

Vino Vino is one of our regular favorite hang spots with friends. They previously had terrific appetizers and small plates and of course great wine. They recently had an entire redo of the restaurant and menu. We miss the old menu and are sad that one of our favorite restaurants feels gone. We much preferred the old menu.

Took my wife here for her birthday, wanted to get away from downtown. It was the perfect choice. Great ambiance, casual but cool. Sat at the bar for a glass of bubbly first. Joe was a fun bartender. Then grabbed our table. I had the scallops and my wife had the duck ravioli. They were both great. We also had the wedge salad, best wedge ever. Topped it off with a recommended Spanish Red. So delicious. The waiters kind of tag team so those names fail me. But all in all it was a fab experience. We'll be back!

This is my neighborhood wine bar and it never disappoints. While the acoustics leave a little to be desired, I appreciate the excellent service. My favorite appetizer is the cheese with tomato jam. It has a good spice to it. The vanilla creme brûlée is very nice. While it is on the high end price wise, it makes for a nice close to home date night.

I love the food here. Usually we get great servers who are very personable. Tastings of wine are fun when you want a sample, those are free and sometimes very very small. It's quite a splurge to come for dinner. This last visit was extremely disappointing because our food took about an hour and a half :( seemed like everything was backed up in the kitchen. They knew they had a large group coming, why not plan for this. For the price we were paying, this was not good service. Please plan ahead Vino Vino!

The ambiance was pleasantly rustic (old wooden floors, exposed beam ceiling, etc.) but comfortable. The service was excellent and the kitchen was very accommodating to my date's dietary constraints. We both enjoyed our meals and the wine list is charmingly eclectic offering good value and quality choices. I'll definitely plan to go back again.

However, this semantics of this text box is a different story. I wanted to add a phrase to an earlier sentence and after each added character, the cursor was moved to the end of the text. I had to place the cursor, enter one character, and then place the cursor back and enter one more character, etc.

The Happy Hour food lacks quantity and quality. The small slider was not worth $5.00 and the French Fries came cold even though there were plenty of them. The aioli sauce is simply mayo, should have Nordstrom's French Fries with Aioli (to die for).

Always love Vino Vino. Great atmosphere, and typically a great experience. The only thing that really marred this visit were the mussels. We had to send them back, and both times they were not great. Slightly undercooked, and really briny. Fries were great, though. Broccoli salad was great. Red wine should actually be served a bit cooler. Most people don't realize that 'room temp' is actually that of a wine cellar.
