The restaurant looks pleasant and clean upon initial arrival. I meet there weekly for a networking meeting, and every week I am more and more disappointed with the care and cleanliness of this establishment. The ladies restroom toilets are not sealed or caulked to the dirty looking cement stained floor, so they Rick back & forth if you bump them.... More

The title says it all. We had a group of eight. It was a fun atmosphere and a good band. I had the mussels which were good. My husband had the fresh oysters and the short rib appetizer and he thought they were excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Will definitely return.

First off Happy Hour is 4pm until 7 pm including appetizers. Their house wine is just as good as any other wines offered. Ambiance is soft, quiet and thankfully a no kid zone just because it's a little pricey. Service was great. Outdoor seating with heating lamps when cold. We had Calamari that was excellent! It was fresh, tasty and... More

This is the place to go for amazing food, great wine selection and excellent service! I have been at the Vine many times and each time the experience was beyond expectation. From appetizers to the Chefs daily special, from a glass of wine to a great Martini, and even Sunday brunch was so yummy. The staff is courteous and knowledgable... More

Located in North Tampa, The Vine offers a small outdoor seating area as well as the main indoor restaurant. The outside is usually crowded at night, but their Happy Hour starts at 4PM so if you go a little earlier you could grap a table or couch seating area with friends outside. The inside is pretty dark but attractive and... More

Met a friend for dinner. While waiting, I ordered a glass of Merlot and Pei Mussels in a white wine sauce. The mussels melted in my mouth, the garlic, white wine sauce, and spinach added a wonderful flavor to my taste buds. For dinner Gulf Red Snapper and Shrimp sauteed in a lemon caper wine sauce. Ahhh..the Snapper was fresh... More

The Vine Bar on North Dale Mabry in Lutz is a jewel in this area of North Tampa. The wine selection is extensive and carefully constructed, with magnificent wines from all over the world. The menu is spectacular and features dishes that are not only a feast for the eyes, but a feast for the palate too! The service is... More

Nicely decorated inside and several patio umbrella tables on the "patio" which is sadly just the front of the store in a strip mall. The Sunday brunch is not a buffet, but there is a nice selection. All items were delicious. The wine selections are wonderful. Nice place to stop after work for a glass of wine while fighting N.... More
