One of the best meals we have had in a longtime. They claim to be "wine country " cooking and they have achieved it. We have been to Napa several times and this food compares. I had the special, a braised short rib in a wine reduction with a wide assortment of roasted vegetables. My wife had the pork schnitzel.... More

What can I say? Vine has everything to offer. on one side it has a busy bar and the other Semi Casual dining with gourmet food offerings. They grow their own seasonal veggies. The menu rotates and there is always something delicious for you. Wait staff has charisma! Excellent wine beer and cocktails. Prices are what you would expect to... More

Excellent local restaurant. We merely trolled through the starters with our group of four and enjoyed a variety of delicious, well conceived dishes. Really loved the duck!!! So busy we sat outside. I can see why this spot is enjoying such success.

Vine was recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint. Staff was friendly and fun. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The chef's special are always a hit. Bone in ribeye steak was amazing. Price was reasonable for the quality of the food and service.

Great meal on New Year's Eve. Service was great and the food excellent. We were inside, where the tables are not too close together which was nice. Prices were variable depending on order - I had the special surf and turf which was pricey but very good. Portions were more than adequate. We will definitely be visiting again.

The ambiance in the dining room was great. As we were leaving, I saw the bar area had plenty of diners, who were there by choice, as there were own tables in the much quieter dining room. I guess some people like the noise, activity, TV. Each to his own! The salads, at over ten dollars, were good, but too... More

A friend who is a local took us out to this place. We ended up in a private area adjacent to the bar, which was perfect. Our server was excellent. The food was inventive and very good. If we were local, we would eat here regularly.
