Great food, staff, atmosphere and one of the few area restaurants to take reservations

We happened into this restaurant not expecting much. We found a new favorite. Great staff, bar, food, and atmostphere. We started with salads and my son and wife got the usual caesar salad while I opted for red and golden beet salad with gorgonzola, radicchio, candied pecans and blood orange... read more

We have eaten at Vue a few times for lunch and have really enjoyed it in the past. Today it took 45 minutes to get our food and that was with us being the second table to be seated. Three of us ordered hamburgers and one ordered the shrimp appetizer. All three of us that had the burgers agreed that... More

We were celebrating upcoming nuptials of friends. Great group dining outside. Appetizers-venison rolls were fabulous. Scallops melted in your mouth and risotto was creamy goodness...needless to say... Delicious food. And Everything was prepared to perfection. Staff was friendly and efficient especially with our large party.

I never ever write reviews but I was so impressed I had to let everyone know. We came in as a large table and sat out on patio. Beck was our server and she was phenomenal. Talk about excellent service. She took our pictures n emailed them to everyone at the table (and she was very busy but she went... More

Make sure you have an iPhone with a flashlight to read menu and bill. Gumbo had cheap stringy okra with fat floating in it from the andouille sausage. Bread could crack a diamond that was served with olive oil and not butter. Fish had a fishy taste and rice over cooked - mushy. Dessert disappointing. Key lime pie served in... More

We didn't have a reservation but the place wasn't busy and we got there early but we're treated rudely by the staff. They put us outside and moved us twice. On top of everything I got sick after eating here and spent a whole day of vacation vomiting. This is obviously a "club" catering to the local wealthy men and... More

Excellent meal and good service for a table of 11. Very nice setting in Santa Rosa. All of our entrees were prepared exceptionally well in a timely manner. Highly recommend!

I have to be honest that we steered clear of the Vue based on some of Trip Advisor's reviews. On 5/7, we decided to venture for dinner here and were warmly greeted by the hostess; instilling our confidence in the restaurant selection. We were so delighted with our meals that we returned the next evening. Even though they were not... More

We were not escorted out. We had finished our dinner, and after two and a half hours of begging for service. We waited for ten minutes for our water and had to ask twice. We have been there many times, and taken countless people. We all own second homes, and go to The Vue every visit. Over the years, we... More

My wife and I have recently moved to 30a. We were contemplating joking the golf club across from this gem of a restaurant. We decided to stop in for drinks about 1 pm on Friday.
