Great food

We had a business lunch at the Vine Cottage. Salads were great! They have a good choice of lunch menu items and reasonably priced.

I have meant totes Vine Cottage for at least a couple of years. Very very good. Kale caeser and sautéed calamari were both excellent. The seared scallops over mushroom risotto were perfect! I am looking forward to my next visit.

We had a delicious Cobb salad and flat bread Margarita pizza.The pizza was the best I have ever had. The tomatoes were sweet and the crunch of the flatbread was perfect. I... More

I have been to The Vine Cottage about a dozen times and can't say enough good stuff about this place! The happy hour deals are great. Most flat breads I have tried were delicious and my favorite entree are the scallops! check it out!

The atmosphere is charming--outdoor dining an option. Easy access on Lake Murray Blvd. in La Mesa near Lake Murray. The food is excellent and service very good to excellent, as well. It was somewhat pricey, I thought, but people seemed to really enjoy this place and come here often. I haven't been back since because there are places I like... More

My husband and I enjoy having a neighborhood restaurant that serves well prepared food. The Vine Cottage is great. We were just there a few days ago. I had the Cioppino and my husband had the Puttanesca. Both were seasoned just right and the shrimp and fish were not overcooked. I hope this restaurant hangs around for a long time.

Knew everything on the menu, made recommendations and customer service and personality were the best. She was training KARLA which was also very nice to deal with. She will... More

I eat lunch here often and occasionally, dinner. The best sweet potato fries ever. Great veggie sandwich too. Everything is yummy and the service is friendly and professional. Don't pass this place up - once you find it you will always go back.
