There is always a daily special. All the dishes are excellent and well prepared. A little pricey but worth it.

I took the wife to the Vineyard for dinner on Valentine's day. I had a reservation and we were seated a few minutes after arriving. The food was excellent. The wife and I both had the rib eye steak that was cooked perfect for our taste. The only complaint about the food was they were out of the Fried Mozzarella... More

On a 1 1/4 hour lunch recess from court, we chose The Vineyard, 1/2m from the courthouse. Without a reservation, in a very busy dining room, our party of four was warmly welcomed and seated immediately. We informed our server of our abbreviated time and she fell in step with a rhythm that fit perfectly into our time window. A... More

The restaurant is nice. But the food pretty mediocre. I ordered the Duck salad and they completely ruined the duck. It was chewy and hard. I also ordered the chicken "Mary". The best part of that were the veggies. Again the chicken was VERY HARD and flavorless!!! Total bill for one person w tip.... $80!!! Definitely NOT worth it. Go... More

The restaurant seating was mostly full so we asked to be seated in the bar area. This actually worked out great because we like having mixed drinks with lunch. Our server, 'Joy', was a real joy. She was very knowledgeable and recommended the 'Raisin Grower' sandwich which was fantastic; toasted raisin bread with ham and Swiss cheese. But even better... More

I walked into this establishment on a quiet Monday night and on the wall you see reviews of the restaurant, many of which are from over a decade ago. Perhaps newer and more recent reviews featured on this wall would be a good touch, because I mostly read these to get an idea of what to order. It's interesting how... More

I had never thought of Madera as a place to go for dinner, but I will definitely return to this excellent restaurant again when travelling through the Central Valley.
