Elegant Florida at it's best

Beautiful room, great service, great people watching. Stepping into this beautiful room is like stepping back in time. Drinks are not cheap but they are masterfully blended and not watered down like in some Hotel bars.

Plenty of outdoor tables, replete with fire pits and umbrella coverage make for an inviting venue. Drinks are reasonably well made, albeit hotel-expensive, and the cigar offerings are suitable for most tastes.

Part of a conference lunch buffet but very happy with healthy options. Salad options was to everyone's likings.

We had a delicious lunch there! We had just gone to the Dali Museum and were walking downtown. Since many of the wedding guests were staying at the Vinoy, we thought we would have lunch there. Two of us ordered the grouper sandwich and it was so, so delicious!

We chose the outside restaurant upstairs near the pool. The courtyard was simply too hot! Our lunch was terrific. My sandwich was a turkey wrap with REAL turkey. I can't eat processed food so I was grateful. There were strawberries and melted brie cheese with greens. But be careful. They also added a pepper jack cheese that had quite a... More

Nice to be able to sit on chaise loungers and couches outside, under the palms and the stars. Good selections of liquors. Attentive service. Walk over from Beach Ave. for a quieter, more upscale scene.

The Vinoy Hotel dates way back and its charm has been kept. Excellent food -- we were on a tour so menu choices were limited. Everybody in the group of 3-4 tables liked everything. One wrong note is picky -- we ordered a Sangria from the bar. It was awful -- they put BRANDY in it. NOT a light fruity... More

This is on of my favorite places simply because of the size and layout. There are few architects who grasp the concept of scale to make an impression, but whoever laid out this room nailed it. As far as dining her, I've been here 4 times. The staff is great, especially the bartenders. All in all I've been pleased with... More

I want to start out by saying the traditional brunch the Vinoy used to do was my favorite brunch in town so I was skeptical when I learned this was no longer offered when we went there last Sunday at 11am but willing to give the new menu a try, which did not go so well. The expresso my boyfriend... More
