Vineyards was recommended to us by a local, who told us about the "$15 fries"...which come with a side of steak and caesar salad. We liked the idea of a jazz bar, and we're glad we made a reservation here. The food was great (better...More

We caught a night without Jazz. The food is overpriced and the wine extremely pricey especially for European travellers who are use to European wines and reasonable prices. You feel that you are paying for the musicians with the prices for very mediocre food. We...More
