I used to frequent the vines in 2005-2008. A ton has changed since then. When I sub sauce for spicy it is noted on the receipt but is normally just a regular tomatoe sauce, not spicy at all. Portions have gotten smaller and prices have gone up. I know it's been 10+ years but I am done, I give up-... More

Easter brunch was very good. Given the overwhelming capacity the staff was efficient and friendly. The food was very good. A little slow at times but still well above acceptable. A very cute restaurant that I would recommend for quality service and value

Great experience for a first visit. Our group of 13 had Easter Brunch...wide variety of food, something for everyone. Staff was friendly and helpful. My only small issue was that we were seated upstairs, and the buffet was downstairs, so up and down the stairs each time, for all of us.

Had a very enjoyable experience at the Vines last week celebrating a friend's birthday. We had booked the private room upstairs and we could not have had a better set up! The staff were very helpful, patient and professional. The food (as always) was delicious and everyone had a fantastic time.
