Entirely underwhelming. This was my first time here for brunch and likely won’t go again. There are too many other great options out there.

It was almost too loud to think let alone hold a conversation.

The food took forever to come out and it was lukewarm with no poor taste.

Great brunch, very friendly but not overly attentive service. Noise level very high but, with only 2 in our party, we were able to converse easily. Not sure I would feel the same with a larger group.

Friends and I shared a holiday lunch and had an amazing time. I will be making a reservation for my birthday next month!

Great brunch. They pretty strictly enforce the 2 hour limit for bottomless mimosas but they are NOT stingy with the pour. Our glasses were always full and the server was super friendly and attentive.

A delectable menu for any any palette that offers wonderful service and serene dining atmosphere right on U Street.

The food was cold! I even asked for another side of home fries becuase mine were cold and the replacement was still cold. The server was nice, but a little forgetful. Overall, it was fine.

This was my second brunch experience. The patio area is so quaint. The steak pountine is great and the enchiladas are delightful. The bottomless mimosas are a fair price($18). The cinnamon roll was a little disappointing though. But I will be back.

Food was sub par at best, burger was terrible, ribs were chewy, lettuce was not washed- give this place a pass

This place use to be one of my favorite places in the city, but it has turned from a great restaurant to a bar with bar food

We enjoyed our overall Vinoteca experience! The service was amazing and the host was understanding of our party being late for the reservation.

The food, however, wasn't as good. I ordered the Jambalaya Grits and was at least expecting a few full size shrimp. I didn't know it would all be blended together - I even mentioned it to the server. The taste was also bland.

Absolutely amazing! Went for restaurant week, but will DEFINITELY return. Everything was totally delish, from the drinks to the dessert. Our server, can't remember his name, was a delight. Very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Cute restaurant with very nice decor and great music.

The server failed to put our order into the kitchen. After an hour, she was reminded, and the items finally came. The taste was nothing to come back for.

Worst. Service. Ever.

We sat at a table where our server gave us attitude: threw menus at us; ignored our table for a while; came to ask for our orders (and I mean this literally) loudly chewing gum, never making eye contact/looking at the wall across us; then proceeded to blatantly avoid our calls to her from our table- in one instance, she locked eyes with my girlfriend as she stormed defiantly past us. Lol!

To add insult to injury, after she rushed through our orders by bringing us the check before we asked for it- we had been there for 50 minutes, exactly, at that point- a bus boy gently approached our table and asked us if we could move to the bar because the next reservation had arrived. I reiterate: 50 minutes. We were in utter disbelief. This was our first visit to Vinoteca, and I'm sad to say I won't be seeing their Benedict with duck confit again. There is bad service, then there's Vinoteca.
