    We are there for birthday celebration, however at the end the waiter didn’t offer any treats for our little one. Kind of not perlite. May be we are Asian?

    It’s a lovely place situated above the Lexus Dealer. We were seated promptly and the service was pretty good. My short ribs were tender and good, but there was a grit in the micro greens that had a foul taste. The carrots and onions were delicious, but the little turnips were undercooked. My daughter loved the Leek Soup, but said the ceasar salad was just ok. My brother enjoyed his rib eye and it was cooked to his liking. My sister said her pork chop was pretty good as well. My daughter in law said her lobster bisque was ok, but lacked flavor. The dessert served was butter cake. No one at our table of 9 enjoyed it, sorry to say. I wouldnt want to return because they add a 5% surcharge to cover increasing costs. I think it’s better to just make the menu prices reflect what you expect your diners to pay. The staff are very nice, though.

    We loved the food and environment. This was definitely a treat to celebrate V-day. Only negative is the surcharge they charge to “keep up wages”. Seems like a fine dining place like that should be able to pay they're staff better without up charging the paying customers.

    It's always a great experience at Vintana. The only thing was the Coconut Margarita isn't the same. My wife used to look forward to them, but the recipe/presentation was changed and it was not as good as before.

    Enjoyed a belated Valentine's Day lunch with my wife. We sat out on the porch. Service and food were both excellent. It's a little funny having the restaurant on top of a car dealership, but you forget about it while you're there. We hope to go back for cocktails.

    We sat outside on the patio, and heaters made it very comfortable. Our entrees were fine, but the brussel sprouts were disappointingly bland, and the Kung Pai Calamari was also pretty disappointing, not at all spicy.

    My husband and I are regular diners at Vintana. We enjoy the upscale ambiance yet Vintana has a warm and welcoming feel. We enjoy happy hour and dinner on the lanai when the weather permits. The staff is very welcoming, friendly and professional. There are a variety of entrees to choose from and each dish is prepared with creative thought.

    unique location on the top of a Lexus dealership but don't let that sway you a bit. Super friendly staff and they were very accommodating to some very serious gluten/shellfish/nut allergies. Tuna/salmon poke was fantastic app. Got the King Salmon and Tuna Salads. Everything was on point. Great wines to complete the meal. highly recommend for a relaxing meal in a nice setting.

    The atmosphere at Vintana is great, it's a really nice way to kick back. I was lucky enough to be situated indoors with my lovely date on Valentine's Day and it was a wonderful experience full of laughs, bubbles and an exceptional (and we'll priced) menu. Highly recommend for any occasion!

    Went to Vintana for Valentine’s Day not knowing what to expect; and they have a specific curated menu for the holiday with no other options and $74.99 each for 3 courses and add-ons of wine. The price wasn’t great, but the quality of food did not match the price or value either. Disappointing because we enjoy this place, but it seemed like a big money-grab with subpar food. Better to do a 3 course meal at Old Spaghetti Factory for $25

    We didn’t realize it was going to be a set menu. The choices were very limited and not worth $75 per person. It was certainly inflated because it was Valentine’s Day which is ridiculous. We’ve had better food for less at other places. The service was really good though. Drinks were full at all times and they were very polite and clean.

    Vintana, never disappoints from the moment you walk in the door one is made feel like a VIP the attention to detail as one orders is AMAZING!!! I always order the steak 18oz Rib eye which in my opinion is the best in San Diego and I have been to several steak houses, from Morton to out back to Steak houses. No one comes close, Surprisingly, Vintana , is not a Steak house, price, quality, quantity, flavor, wonderful experience.

    I love this venue. The Lobster Bisque was delicious, the Pepita Brie was good, the Garlic Tiger Shrimp was a disappointment. Three whole unshelled shrimp, & two of them were a bit mushy, & one of those was missing half the tail meat. Not worth the $23.95 I LOVE the Popovers here, & they are a primary reason to dine here. This evening there were none to be had. The ambience, service, food presentation, all great! And, the “sneaky” Surcharge…BAD!!!

    Very nice and unique restaurant with great service. I had the ahi tuna and it was just ok. The sauce on the ahi didn't really complement the flavor. It was more like a tasteless gravy. My wife had Japanese vegetable bowl and the cauliflower was so under cooked she had to ask for a steak knife to cut it. We had a nice time but were disappointed with our meals.

    We ordered the Brie, calamari, oysters, Caesar salad, green beans and 18 oz bone in Rib eye. The Brie was very good. The calamari was not very good. It was all clumped together and the flavor was not good. The Caesar salad was alright. The green beans were tough and the rib eye was very good. The food was very underwhelming but our server was great

    Service and Ambiance were fantastic. We went to celebrated my 50th Birthday party with our family of 10… Few things available - such as pasta we had to ask for vs on menu. The food was just ok . I was beyond Underwhelmed by my mussels dinner dish and didn’t eat it, nor did I send it back. Rib-eye way better than the filet. A lot of season was Lacking that night . Everything was great but some Of the food. Half of us ate happily, the other half, not so much. Could’ve been better but. Happy fun night all the same . We will stick to drinks and appetizers next time …
