Always a great time at the Vineyard

The Mariscotti family continues their tradition of excellence. Great menu options - the all time favorites as well as new dishes to try. Chef Hector has won the valley Iron Chef competition several times. Great dining experience!

Pretty basic Italian fare, tries to come off as fine dining, but does not quite meet the standards in my book. The menu is a bit boring, service on our visit was a bit on the slow side, and our waiter definitely was not kid friendly. The food was basic and good, but not worth the price, this would be...

I have eaten here often over the years. The foods are hit and miss, as is the service. Sometimes great, sometimes not so great. This last lunch was good, but the pumpkin ravioli was over priced. My husband and dad had the clam chowder which they both said was excellent, and it was a large bowl, at a good price.... More

The décor is clean and inviting. The menu is ok, nothing jumps off at the page at you. The wines by the glass list is poor. Service was excellent. The tapenade they serve with the bread is horrible. Soup was served lukewarm/ Overall decent experience if you want table service in Madera but a notch above chain food faire. I... More

We selected this place based on reviews, while staying a few miles a way for one night on business. We went for a dinner on a Tuesday night, meeting a business associate from Fresno who had never been there. Both my wife and I ended up having Mary's chicken, a chicken breast dish with a risotto and pomegranate sauce that... More

We were driving back from Fresno the San Francisco and stopped for dinner. Was a good meal and the atmosphere was nice. Had some great wine along with a nice meal. Trusted the trip advisor ratings and it worked out.
