I have been to the vineyard twice for lunch and dinner. Each time the food was excellent. Real Italian, and that comes from someone who lived in Italy for 3 years. Both times I chose the Eggplant Rolotini, but my fellow diners had other dishes which were also super. The service was friendly and efficient and the waitstaff were very... More

Arrived Friday evening for our 7pm reservation to a totally empty restaurant. Only one other table was seated the entire time we were there. For some reason we were seated in the back corner right next to the POS system the waiters use - clearly the least desirable table in the place, highlighted by the fact that every single table...

Highly enjoyable, good caprese, excellent calamari. Super service, even during a busy lunchtime. A good, solid address.

we have enjoyed this restaurant for years but they have really stepped up the quality of food. Our server, Jeff, was attentive and entertaining. I have a real favorite and the Veal Caprese was off the chart! The house salad was fresh and also very tasty. cant wait to get back for some more great Italian food.

Everything I've tried there has been tasty, but I especially love their homemade marinara sauce, so I feel like I cheat myself when I don't order eggplant rollatine, lasagna, or something that calls for it. The house salads and garlic knots, which accompany entrees, are delicious too. I enjoy the music, atmosphere, cuisine, and house wines. It feels like a... More

Food was good. Good selection of American and Italian, and seafood. Great selection of wines too. Atmosphere is quaint and pleasant. Wasn't crowded and you could talk in a normal tone. My only complaint was that when I placed my order, I asked ordered an appetizer for the whole table. Everyone's meal came quickly and I asked about the appetizer,... More

Excellent salmon salad. Lots of walnuts, cranberries. Salmon was moist and well seasoned. Eggplant rolletine was tasty, loads of cheese, fresh spinach. Hit the spot.

My husband and I went into The Vineyards on Monday evening. I had the lasagna that melted in your mouth...my husband had a fish dish I believe. Our server was Susan...she was a little to chatty and all over the place. Walking all around talking on the phone and even sitting down at someone's table. Not very professional looking for... More

Everything was so good, from the cocktails to the salad to the entree. Too full to try desert. I could eat their salad everyday! We asked the server for recommendations and he was spot on. I had ravioli, gnocchi, and tortellini in vodka sauce - divine!

We were here over the weekend and I can't say enough good things. It's strange to read the other reviews because our experience was so different. First off, the food is indeed Italian but not the Olive Garden kind some folks might be used to. There are the classics but the menu also includes some interesting twists on traditional Italian...
