Chris, his Chef, and all the staff always provide excellent value, first class service, and food quality. Don't skip this valley restaurant when coming to Madera or passing through.

We have enjoyed dinning at The Vineyard for years, it is one of the best meals in the valley. At least half the time I have the Calamari Steak...large pieces, perfect breading, and cooked just right. I would put this calamari up with any I have had on the coast or down in Cabo! There is a great selection of... More

We started with the a bottle of decent red wine, their great bread, and the sampler plate, which included calamari steak, artichoke hearts, some potatoes, and two skewers with beef and onions. Super! We asked for a small dish of marinara sauce for the calamari ( they provided shrimp cocktail sauce, but we're marinara fans), which really went well with... More

The Vineyard is a local Madera restaurant that is located right off of Highway 99 about 10 miles north of Fresno. For those traveling this route that want something more than fast food or a chain restaurant, this is a great choice. The restaurant is locally owned and most of the food is fresh, well prepared, and artfully plated. We... More

Madera is fortunate to have this restaurant in town. This is fine dining that is just about as good as it gets. The lamb shank is outstanding and always a big favorite when we dine there. The bar is very good and they have an very nice wine list. Very attentive service and your host Chris is always there. Highly... More

Weary travelers wandered in with no reservation, got a very warm greeting, immediate seating, great bread with our wine and beer and a very good dinner, all within an hour without feeling rushed. The menu is wide and varied and the waiter seemed to invent a salad on the spot, adding two prawns and a seafood vinagrette to the house... More
